Nae: What’s the meaning of this?
Nae: Riku… Didn’t come to school for two days
Yet, he’s not here. Where is he then…?
Did you once again come to deliver printouts, Naechan? Rikkun isn’t here right now,
???: He’s got a match tonight.
Text on the left: Alone and left out.
Nae: A match?!
???: He should have told me. I’d have taken a break to go see him.
But well, brushing off others and being unassertive is just like him after all…
Riku thinking: At last it’s time, eh…?
Riku thinking: Mr Kikuchi
Must be a good father…
Soon, we’ll exchanging blows…
Riku thinking: In front of that child…
Riku thinking: Tonight I’ll find out…
If I can survive in this world…
Coach: As you’d expect of a match for fourth rounder, it’s a pretty a lonesome scenery… But, I guess you ain’t really interested in the surroundings, eh?
Coach: Kyousuke ain’t here.
He spends every days with his group of hoodlums so there ain’t no way for him to be in this hall.
Riku: I… see.
Announcer: The ninth fourth rounder lightweight match will now be starting.
Announcer: In the Red corner, member of the Tadzika Gym and weighting 135 pounds:
Supporter: good fight, Tatsuya!
Announcer: In the Blue Corner, member of the Baba Boxing Gym and weighting 132 pounds…
Announcer: Moreover, know that this will be Azami’s debut fight.
???: That newcomer’s pretty hot, isn’t he?
???: …Look at him… what’s will all these injuries…?
Tatsuya: Nice to meet you, Azami.
Coach: I won’t tell you anything except that
You should remember what Kyousuke told you on the mental, not the technic, alright?
Announcer: Round 1…
Riku thinking: H-He’s already on me… right after the gong…
???: He charged him right away!
Riku thinking: My eyes…!!
M-Mr Kikuchi in front of me…?!
???: Ahaha, awesome! Just how I like fourth rounder matches, full of spirit!
???: That newbie is SOMEWHAT getting beaten by Kikuchi.
???: Kikuchi? You mean that old man from welterweight who kept being crafty as a fourth rounder?
Now, he’s being referred to as a hard puncher just because he managed to get a few downs before.
???: Look at his expression, he’s totally desperate!
Child: Hang in there, Daddy!!
Riku thinking: I-
I… thought about it again…
Riku thinking: That kid holds everything…
I once wanted most…
SFX in bubbles: Hah
Riku thinking: And if those things are taken away from him…
???: What’s the fuss about?
???: The match’s really intense, you know?
Clock: Round 1 - Left: 1m31s
???: Looks like this will be over with in the first round.
???: That newcomer just doesn’t want to fight, I guess? He hasn't punched even once…
I guess a referee stop will come before the gong even rings.
Riku thinking: What the heck am I doing!!
What did I came “here” for?!
Riku thinking: I finally found my “way”! And at long last I’m having my debut fight,
But in the end, the winner won’t be decided using fists…
At this rate… I’ll lose.
Does that mean I can’t… live “here”… live even with “boxing”…?
If that is no good too, then what will become of my…
???: So that newcomer held on for the first round after all…
He finally used it after being cornered…
Kyousuke thinking: His fist…
Right Text: Within expectations? Kyousuke Tokorozawa, overseing the hard fight from the shadows!
