Orange light streams into the room - a scene ripped straight out of an anime romcom.
Yet instead of the MC, it is you who is standing there.
And instead of the childhood friend, or the top beauty of the school, or any other wild hilarious scenario, there stood a normal girl.

Well..."normal". She's your seatmate, the [Mob Character] Hanazawa Mayumi.
She's leaning on her desk, bag clutched with both hands.
But all her focus seems to be on the doorway. Where you stand.

She nods. "Good afternoon, Yamada-san."
You have never been alone in a classroom with a girl before. You feel an uncomfortable sensation in the back of your neck. What's going to happen next?
You head over to your seat and start packing up. Hanazawa says nothing. You only feel her gaze.

With all your stuff packed, you're just about ready to go home.
Yet the girl hasn't said anything at all.

Huh you know I wonder if the MC notices when the Viewers are watching us, like if he used to all his wacky highjinks and shit and suddenly for random periods of time everything gets boring, like disturbingly suddenly terribly boring and he doesn't know why
>>
>>2124577
We don't know if she's fully Awakened, or if the world is reacting to our existence by trying to remove an unnecessary distraction.

>>2124561
>"...Could I help you with something?"
>>
>>2124561

>"...Could I help you with something?"

Hanazawa looks up at you. "...How are you feeling, Yamada-san?"
Eh? What do you mean?
"PE. You weren't with the other guys so I thought that something happened."
You laugh. "It was nothing. I'm fine now, Hanazawa-san. Thank you for the concern. I just pulled a muscle earlier this morning."
"Ah, is that so?"

...It's just idle chatter. You think that this is a good time to excuse yourself, but
"Yamada-san, where do you live?"
"Eh? Um...by the artificial river."
"Hmm...that's pretty far, huh..."
"From the school? No, not really."
"That's not really what I meant..." she mutters.

Hanazawa pushes away from her table and makes her way to the door.
"Then, want to walk together for a bit?"

Situations where the animation has gone all QUALITY and even the cabbage looks like a balloon.

If this was a light novel we wouldn't have this problem at all.

>>2124611
Maybe she's been awoken too?
>>
>>2124612
As I said in previous thread, maybe the animator knew us in our previous life as a greasy otaku NEET before we got Truck-kun
>>
>>2124611
You walk down the hallway in silence. There's a fair bit of distance between you two, something you did in consideration for her. Who knows what others will say when they see you two.
...But who will think that? Aren't all the other people in this school just Mobs?

Ahh, awkward, awkward. Think of a topic...

>Club?
"Hanazawa-san, are you part of a club?"
"Not really."
"Eh, that's surprising," You try to keep up the chat, but you don't really have much experience. "This school seems to be pretty supportive of their clubs."
"Yes, that's right. I've actually been recruited a few times now."
"And you didn't join any of them?"
"No. They don't really interest me." She laughs for a bit. "I'm not really a person who has a lot of interests."
"Ah, is that s--"

"It's been a while that I found someone interesting too."
You look at her. She's looking in your direction as well.
"Yamada-san...you kind of feel...different. It might be rude to say, but last month I didn't really get that impression, but..."

>>
>>2124708
>"Different how?"

She pauses, looks you up and down. Hanazawa keeps on walking. You follow her.
"I don't really know myself...it's probably nothing. I apologize for saying weird things."

You wonder for a bit. Maybe...?
"Hey, Hanazawa-san. Have you noticed something weird with our classmates?"
"What do you mean?"
"Like the class rep for example, or Tezuka-san."

She thinks for a bit.
"Class rep has always been a kind person, even back in middle school. Tezuka-san can sometimes be air-headed though, yeah..."
"What about their hair?"
She raises her eyebrows.
"What about their hair, Yamada-san?"

She looks like you have no idea what you're talking about.

"No, it's nothing. Sorry for the weird questions."
You resume your walking. You've exited out the right wing of the school and are heading out the gate now.
"They do have nice hair, though."
"What?"
"Hikaru-san and Tezuka-san. They're all silky and glossy, and Tezuka-san even sleeps all the time..."

You notice her tug on her pink scrunchie. She's conscious about her hair, it seems.

Is it possible that Hanazawa is a Main or Side Character already, that just hasn't become relevant yet?

"W-Well," you stammer while trying to say it. "I don't really...as a boy, I don't see your hair being that different, Hanazawa-san. Black is a perfectly fine color for hair! In my opinion, it looks good, it suits you."
She stares at you for a second before removing her gaze. You see the the tips of her earlobe glow pink.

Crap, you made it all weird now...

But before you could try to clear things up, she giggles.
"You are interesting after all, Yamada-san."
Now it's your turn to feel a bit red.

In no time you reach the bottom of the hill.
"Well, Hanazawa-san, I'm this way..."
She seems to be going the other way, so you bow your head to each other.
You turn around, about to head home, when she speaks again.

"...Yamada-san? Could I ask you something?"
You turn around. You can't see her face. Is it because she's a Mob, or is it the wind blowing on her bangs, blocking her appearance?
"When you were sleeping, and Hikaru-san woke you up...what did you say?"
She straightens up and looks you in the eye.
"I didn't quite catch it...um..."

Oh god, this is turning into a Makoto Shinkai movie.
>>
>>2124851
>>"Your name."
I thought you were trying to wake me
>>
>>2124851
You tried to deny it.
You tried to convince yourself that you don't remember.
No. You remember full well.

"Hanazawa."
"...Yes?"
You shake your head. "No. That's what I said when I woke up. Hanazawa."
Somehow, it feels like you're confessing. It feels like your heart is popping out of your chest.
She stares, wide eyed, breath held. Then,

"A-Ah. Is that so? I mean, right, cause we're seatmates right? You thought it was me waking you up. That's right. Ok. Well, see you on Monday, Yamada-san."

She quickly escapes from the scene before you could even say anything in reply.
You wonder if she got what you meant to say.
You then wonder what even it is you want to say.
You go home scratching your head.
"Girls..."

-------

You arrive home before it got too dark. Your father's already in the kitchen. The smell of fried soy sauce and spices fill the house.
"Oh, Ken-chan, good evening! We're having stir-fry tonight."
You pause. Didn't he say something about advice before...?

You wait for him to finish his cooking before approaching him.
"Oh, Ken-chan. I thought you went up to your room," he says while wiping down his sweat.
You hold your arms, unexpectedly embarassed. "Dad. I was wondering if I could ask you advice..."
"Oho! Finally seeing your old man's wisdom huh? Take a seat!"

You sit down, and upon being motioned to continue, you tell the whole story. Waking up, saying her name, the walk back from school, and the scene from the bottom of the hill.
Your dad stares at you with an exaggerated look of disappointment.

"X."
"...Hm?"
"Fail! 0 out of 10! NG! Strike out~!" He motions like a referee throwing a player out. "What the hell is that, Ken-chan?! You have no game at all!"
"G-Game?"
"Listen. You've only been seatmates with this girl for a month, and now you're saying her name in your sleep? You don't need to be a girl to see that's creepy, Ken-chan!"

He shakes his head. "Really, Ken-chan, you need to do better than that..." He pouts, and scratches his head while thinking. "Well...maybe if you were more handsome it could've worked..."
Oi.
"The thing is, right now he doesn't see you as a potential. The best thing to do right now is to maximize your male appeal."
"Male appeal?"
"Everyone likes a guy who's got something going on for him. Well, right now, you don't have a club, you have the body of a stick, and you lack something creative."
"Creative?"
"Well, even guys should be creative, don't you think! Makes them look more feminine to the girls too. Maybe pick up an instrument, drawing, something like that."
"How about cooking?"
"Cooking? Ehh, well, I could teach you some, but the kitchen will always be my domain! Hahaha!"

He removes his apron and heads for the door.
"Well, I'm headed to drinking with my buddies. Eat the food while it's still hot!"
Before he leaves, though, he ruffles your head, smiling.
"Good job though, son. But you need to think for the long term. You have nothing to offer to this girl right now. Make her think different."
She leaves you behind in the dining room, waving his hand.

"...If anyone can catch a girl like mom, it's definitely this guy," you say to yourself.
>cont'd
>>
>>2124996
Don't think he caught her, as much as she wrangled him.
>>
>>2124996
You wake up by yourself at five in the morning. Shouldn't your dad have woken you up by four?
You climb down, and see the explanation. Your dad is sprawled on the couch, sleeping soundly. Knowing your mom, she probably kicked him out of the room seeing him drunk.

>Go an actual jog this time, instead of your dad's crazy sprinting routine.
Well, after asking for your dad's advice yesterday, it'd be pretty stupid not to follow it, right?
You change into your exercise clothes and head out.

Unlike last time, the sun is actually up this time, and there are a few people with you as well. Some are walking their dogs, some delivering the mail, some jogging as well.
This would've been a perfectly fine time to jog before school. Why in the world does your dad need to wake you up at four then...?

You follow your fellow joggers, trying to feel out a good route. You discover a few places you didn't notice before, like a playground, a place to buy drinks, and even a little pagoda to rest in.
The joggers stare at you first, surprised by the new presence of this guy with an awkward jog, but eventually they return to their routine. They seemed to have accepted you.

Upon returning to the riverbank, it seems you've figured out a nice routine for yourself that goes through all the landmarks you've discovered. You think you could go another round as well before heading back.

As you jog, you spot her again.
This jogger seems to be an amateur like you as well, more dragging her feet than running. She also has way too many layers of clothes on, for a jog in May.

You pick up your pace, until you reach her side. You glance to see it's a girl wearing really thick glasses, all fogged up due to her panting.

You slow down and try to follow her pace, maintaining your distance so it won't seem like your outright following her.
She doesn't even seem to notice your presence there, though. You both continue your jog in silence.

Matching her pace is a bigger problem than you thought. Slowing down is a different challenge altogether, you find. Nonetheless, you follow her lead and jog on as usual.
Coincidentally enough, her route seems to be exactly the same as the route you came up with. Though it took longer than what it would've taken if you jogged alone, you eventually loop back to the riverbank.

This seems to be a good as time as any to depart.
You jog away from her, deeming that saying farewell when you haven't actually spoken at all will just be misunderstood as creepy.
Instead, you say it in your head. Goodbye, miss Mob jogger.

You arrive back at your house, satisfied with your work out.

Dad's already awake, cooking in the kitchen. And for some reason, wearing a pair of sunglasses.

You go and take a shower first, and upon returning, see that has breakfast has been prepared.
"Um, dad?"
"Hmmph?"
"Isn't katsu in the morning kind of a bit...?"
He stares at you over his sunglasses, eyes bloodshot red.
"If papa doesn't get frying oil in his system right now, he's gonna start tearing this house down."
And with that, he pours a ton of gravy over your breaded porkchop.

You sit and eat your food obediently. You try not to think of what your mother will do when she wakes up later and sees this "breakfast".

-------

So it's the weekend. With your cellphone confiscated, you can't really plan a meeting with anyone (as if you have anyone to call). And without a way to contact you, it's probably better you don't leave Yumegawa first.
So you have multiple options in your mind.

"Dad, I think I'll head over to town for a bit."
"Harrumph."

Well, with that sorted, you leave the dining room and start to change into your casual clothes. Maybe you could do some setting investigation while you're at it...

>cont'd
>>
>>2125120
As with most small towns like this, most of the fancy and upscale commercial stuff could be found by the train station. Though you've been here before, you're still surprised to see such a sleepy small town with a mall, different cafes, shops, and restaurants. How convenient for the MC...
You went all the way here with the intention to investigate, but...
"Hmm."

The whole place is not at all different to the "normal" world. No weaponsmiths or seedy, suspicious bars, nothing. It's just a small town commercial complex.
You find yourself standing in the plaza with nothing really to do for the rest of the day.

With your funds running low as it is, it might be a good idea to get on that part time job your mother is talking about.
You look for interesting stores to apply for. You spot two that pique your interest: an arcade and a family restaurant.

I feel like we'd end up meeting with mc at the Arcade anyway.
>>
>>2125162
>Apply at the family restaurant

You head for the family restaurant. Ideally, you'd want something like a waiting job, though you're not that opposed to working in the kitchen either.
The glass doors automatically slide open. A girl wearing a cute waitress outfit greets you.

"Welco--ara? If it isn't Yamada-kun."
The waitress smiles and sweeps back her lavander hair. "Class rep? What are you doing here?"
"Working. Hang on, could you wait for like ten more minutes? We could have lunch together when my shift ends."
"Actually, I wasn't--"

Buzz!
"Ah, a customer! Take a seat first Yamada-kun, I promise, just ten minutes!"
And there she goes, off to serve a table.

...What kind of scenario did you end up into now...

That's how you ended up eating lunch together with one of the top two beauties of the school.
"Yamada-kun? What are you thinking of getting? The curry here's really nice. Ah, but the salisbury steak's great too...and we have to get the parfait later..."
Isn't this just like a--

You slap yourself.
"Yamada-kun? Is something wrong?"
"Nothing. Just bad thoughts."
She looks at you confused, but in the end shakes her head and looks at the menu again.

(Beware of) Anticlimactic Endings Quest.

>>2125297
A soul-killing quest that is surprisingly relevant. Short read, if you want to look it up.

Yeah we're boned. Everything is just fuck.

>>
>>2125299
It'll be an "Ore Monogatari"-type situation where the MC tries to ship us and the class rep while we try to make him realize she likes him.
>>
>>2125251
seems pretty evenly split, let's do all three

"How long have you been working here, class rep?"
"Hmm? Since back in first year, I think. It's a pretty hard job, but I think helping people seems to be a forte of mine. And aren't the uniforms cute?"

Her waitress uniform is indeed cute, but even in her casual clothes, she looks stunning. The eyes of the other customers seems to always glance at this table.
"I'm surprised he's not against it."
"Who's not against it?"
"Nakamura-san."
You take a sip of water. When you look up, you notice her face has turned darker.
"...Why'd you bring up Eiji, Yamada-kun...?"

Ah crap. You almost forgot. She's a tsundere. She actually thinks she's hiding her emotions well.
"And anyway," she says, angrily sipping her iced tea. "Even if he said that it suits me, i-it's not like I started waitressing because he said that. Idiot!"
For a split second, she breaks the class rep character to mouth off the MC, like any good tsundere would.
"Yamada-kun, why are you grinning?"
"It's nothing, ignore me."

She sighs and slumps back to the leather seats. She's looking off to some direction, probably thinking about the guy again.
For some reason, you had an impulse to break that reverie.

"Actually, class rep..."
"Yes?"
"I came here because I was looking for a part time job."
"Ah, really? Well, what job are you looking for?"
"I was considering waiting tables as well..."

She frowns.
"As much as I'd like to help you on that regard, Yamada-kun, I'm afraid we're full up for waiters."
"A-Ah, is that so..."
"However, if you're comfortable working on the kitchen, I'm willing to talk to the manager for you."
"Is that so? Thank you so much, that really means a lot to me."

She smiles and winks. "Hey, I'm your class rep. Didn't I say to approach me when you needed any help?"
You nod and say thanks again.

"I could even help you in that regard too."
You raise your eyebrows as you take a sip of water. What does she mean?
She grins and leans closer. For a second, that smile looked really, really mischievous...

"Ha. Na. Za. Wa. San~!"

You do a spittake.

>>2125319
>Play it off
"Oh, sorry about that," you muster the straightest and most serious face you could. "I just thought you were Hanazawa because she sits next to me."
She looks at you, rubbing her chin, unconvinced. "Really?"
"Really."
"It's not because you were dreaming of he--"
"Denied. That's really all there is to it, class rep."

She frowns, but then in the end sighs and shrugs her shoulders. "Aw, you're no fun at all, Yamada-kun."
You shrug your shoulders too. To be honest, you yourself don't really know what you feel about her yet.
Suddenly, she perks up and faces you again smiling.

"Then prove it."
"Prove what?"
"Prove that that's just it and there's nothing else there."
Your brows furrow. "How exactly am I going to prove that, class rep?"

She raises her hand, and point to the entrance of the restaurant.
There are two [Mob Characters] standing there, talking to a waiter.
You recognize the pink scrunchie of one of them.

Noon. The meals are placed in front of you. The class rep, Hikaru Ryou, continues to smile mischievously.
"Prove it then."

You can't remove your gaze from the plates. It's as if you were suddenly afflicted with a stiff neck.

Behind you, you hear the voice of a familiar seatmate talking to a waiter.

You're facing away from them. No way have they seen your face yet.
But Hikaru-san is watching your every move.

You--

You turn your focus on appearing as inconspicous as possible. You start digging into the meal, hoping maybe that those two foot steps approaching are not theirs.
"...Yamada...kun?"
Your blood freezes. Your head turns slowly, neck made of rust.
There stood Hanazawa, alongside with her Mob friend.

She's gripping the straps of her purse tightly. The emotions in her eyes are unreadable.
She moves her gaze to the other side of the table.
"And...class rep."
The way she said that last statement, sounded...venomous.

"Yo!" The class rep raises her arm to them while smiling and nibbling on a toothpick.
Read the mood!

"Eh, Yumi-chan, you know these two?"
Her Mob friend interjects. Hanazawa, on the other hand, still has her eyes on the class rep.
Her Mob friend snickers, and whispers something that you barely heard.

"Shouldn't we leave them alone? They're on a date..."

"Er, actually, I was just looking for a job...And, Hikaru-san just happened to be working here, so--"
"You're having lunch together?" Hanazawa's voice, though trying to sound normal, oozes of suspicion.
Class rep seems to be eating all of this up.

"Anyway," says Hikaru, "Why don't we eat together, you guys? We could share the booth between the four of us."
You and Hanazawa seems to be against it, but

"Sure, sounds fun! Right, Yumi-chan?"
She looks a bit shocked, but faced with this sudden question, it seems she can't come up with any objections.
"I-I guess..."

"That's settled, then!" Says the class rep. "Well, as for the seating arrangement..."

>Sit beside the Mob

You end up in the corner of the booth, with Hanazawa's friend beside you. In front of you is Hanazawa, an orchestration made by the class rep.
The Mob is...well, she's about as unremarkable as they get.

"You're Yumi-chan's class rep? Thank you for taking care of my friend! But wow, you're so pretty Hikaru-san! !re you a model?"
"No need to be thankful, taking care of my classmates is part of my duty as a class rep...and I'm really not that pretty, you just caught me in a good hair day."
"Wow, you're so cool, Hikaru-san!"

Even her statements are your typical cliche Mob replies.
Hanazawa is sipping on her drink while staring out the window. She stays quiet.

What's with the long face?

>>2126807

She glances at you, before returning her gaze to outside the window.
"...I didn't ask anything, Yamada-san. Why are you acting so defensive?"

Hikaru almost chokes on her food. Though she's talking to the Mob character, it seems one of her ears is on both of you.
You have to convince class rep that nothing's going on between you two, right?

So--

That's right you need to explain the whole situation to "her" first.

"Oh, would you look at that, I need to go to the comfort room." You say to no one in particular.

The Mob lets you out of the booth. You try to ham it up and pretend lost.

"Ara? Where's the comfort room, I wonder?"
With this, you could have a private conversation with "her"...
Her, in this case, being--

Not really, answer Hanazawa, when class rep goes "so you like her kyaaa" we can still pretend we don't by saying we dont want any misunderstandings to happen that would put gossip about her in the mouth of everyone. EZ deflects.

I don't want to fall into the first girl trap.

Hell, I'm under suspicion that Hanazawa is actually a trap laid out by the director to try and reign us in.
>>
>>2126898
"Er, Hanazawa-san, would you happen to know?"
It seems she got the cue instantly, because she stands immediately up without a word. Class rep lets her pass by, but before you turn around, she smirks. Better fix this fast, she seems to say.

You both make your way in front of the comfort room, away from the view of the booth.
Upon arriving, she faces you with crossed arms. She's waiting for what you have to say.

Because she likes us after we said that she was the first name that came to our mind after waking up in a suspiciously awkward way of confessing. Remember anime rules.

>>2126935
>"Why are you so angry, Hanazawa-san?"

You know, on a side note, I've noticed just how much the class rep has been interacting with us. Now, it may be just coincidence, but what if all this interaction is her trying to actually escape her current role?

>>
>>2126977

I have literally nothing to apologize for, dude.
>>
>>2126980
Could always be playing that up for the audience. As a main girl, she's more likely to have the spotlight on her at any given time, so she'd have to play it more carefully.
>>
>>2126977
YES
>>
>>2126971
We could check if she's awakened discretely
>>
>>2126979
You're pretty lost then pardner. Basically in every anime the interactions between 2 peeps obv in love is usually awkward and indirect. They never go "do you wanna date me?" like normal people, instead they try to find abstract and absurd ways to confess hoping they'll get the meaning behind them (which usually the dense protagonist does not). There you go, crash course.

Backing,

We really don't, yeah. Talking to another girl is something no sane girl should immediately get upset over.

Hey, maybe we should do that. Just be the 'common sense' person.

>>2126992
Sure but you don't passive aggressively ask her why she's mad
>>
>>2126935

This >>2126949
>>
>>2126984
When we interacted with her I don't think it was an audience moment. I mean it'd be weird for the audience to be staring at the girl and a mob in the middle of a hallway or whatever. Then again I dont know anymore.

>>2127001
It's not passive aggression, I just want her to tell us directly.

Ah geez, man. I'm sorry. Scrolled too fast.
>>
>>2127007
I can get behind that, I'd probably ask her in a different way though

That's assuming we're still a basic mob character to the audience. I'm leaning towards we are at a level similar (maybe slightly higher) to Hanazawa in the character tree.

>Apologize for this misunderstanding

"Look, Hanazawa-san...there seems to be some sort of misunderstanding. I'm only here to get a job, and Hikaru-san just happened to be working here. That's it. There's nothing going on in between the two of us."
Silence. She then sighs, and looks at you. "It's not about that, Yamada-san. I just don't know why you keep on apologizing to me."
"It's because you're mad, Hanazawa-san."
"I'm not mad."
"Yes, you are."
"No, I'm not."
"Yes, yo--"

"Ok, so what if I am?!" Suddenly, her voice raises. "You told me yesterday about saying my name in your sleep. And now you're romping off with the class rep?!"
"Like I told you, I'm just asking her about a job..."

The emotions in her face are conflicted. You wonder when did you start seeing these small subtleties of her, despite being a Mob.
"You're right, Yamada-san. Sorry. It's just..."

She inhales, as if readying herself.
"Tell it to me straight. Yamada-san."

"Do you like me?"

Bro, I'm telling you why she's acting the way she's acting. I'm not telling you what we're supposed to do you dense fucko.

It's not that we don't like her. It's that we barely know her.

All these people saying "I DON'T EVEN KNOW YOU LOL" are fucking retarded. We have no idea how far we go back before we awakened, so if your goal is to make us look like a complete tard then keep your vote as is.

>>2127088
Just because you want a romance doesn't mean you have to throw it to the first female presented to you.

Also we're secretly in our 30s
>>
>>2127103

We're the transfer student, remember?
>>
>>2127096
I think we can try to normalize but the thing I want people to realize is that they're not insane by choice. If you want to get any decent relationship you're gonna have to meddle quite a bit with them and set the normal pace yourself, rather than just go "not good, next".


Side-note: I hope the fucker that put captchas in 4chan dies a slow fucking death in his sleep.

FUCK YOU MOOT

I vote yes! Let's jump in to this head first!

>>2127103
We transferred in a month ago, and I would guess we weren't that social able.

>>2127107
We still don't know how long we've been here.
>>
>>2127103
Considering she had no opinion on us until we awakened we didn't have a prior relationship
>>
>>2127103
Were we not the new transfer student. Unless the writers have suddenly make Hanazawa our old childhood friend we haven't seen for over a decade, we seriously should not know her.

>>2127131
YOU FOOL! That's how bad harem coms START!
>>
>>2127019
>I don't know, I barely know you. I wanna know more if that means anything.

"Everything's happening so fast. We don't know each other well enough yet, I think. But I do want to get to know you more, Hanazawa-san. I'm sure of that."
She pauses. And then, Hanazawa-san sighs. "Yeah, you're right. Sorry. I was getting all caught up in my emotions too."
"Emotions?"
"It's because of what you said, yesterday, idiot! You made me go all doki doki and stuff."

You both laugh at how you've been acting the past few minutes. The tension in the air lightens up after what seems like a long time.
"So," you say. "I hope we learn more about each other in the future, Hanazawa-san. Let's be friends."
She smiles and nods. "Same to you too, Yamada-san."

You were about to return to your seat when a question pops in your head.
"Say, Hanazawa-san."
"Hm?"
"Since you asked me, I think it would be fair to ask back. How do you feel about me? Do you like me?"

She turns around, smiles, and steps towards you. So close you could smell the shampoo she used this morning.
She reaches out her hand smooths out your bangs. The soft sensation of her fingertips brush against your forehead.

"Who knows?"

She leaves you behind as you stand there, stunned.

>>2127132
One, I don't have any strong interest in any of the girls currently cause we have barely interacted with any of them.

And secondly, what cucking would there be if we went with the class rep at this time? She isn't actually in a relationship with the MC. Non of the girls are. So cucking would be impossible.
>>
>>2127141
True, personally I would like to slowly build up a romance even though Hanazawa is currently my favorite girl in the quest

You don't watch much SoL romance anime, huh?

First highschool crush is basically equal to a lifelong happy marriage in typical animeland.

Since we're not the harem MC (at least, not at the moment) that means we've probably already found out soulmate or some shit.

Inb4 we bankrupt the studio and the anime is canned.

The heavy atmosphere of the table has lifted. Hanazawa became a bit more sociable after the private conversation we had, and that seemed to relax everyone in the table, including yourself.
You have a nice lunch together. The parfait was indeed delicious.

Upon leaving the family restaurant, Hanazawa and her friend are walking in front of you, chatting. To your side, the class rep.
"So, class rep. What do you think?"
"Hmmph." She's not happy. "I still think you and Hanazawa-san are a good fit."
"Is that so?"
"Stop acting so smug! Well, whatever. My work is done for now, I guess."

She waves to the both in front. "Girls, I still have something to do, so I'll have to take my leave here."

"Is that so? Take care, class rep."
"Take care, Hikaru-chan!"

She turns around, arms raised. And just like that, she disappears into the crowd, despite that eye-catching lavander hair.

"Actually, Yumi-chan, me also..."

"Ah is that so...?"

And with that, the two of you are alone again.
Though the atmosphere is much better, there's still an awkwardness in the air. You still feel Hanazawa's hands on your forehead.

>Walk in silence
>"Your friend's kind of weird..."
>>
>>2127207
Wouldn't the authors realize we're forcefully changing the show?

>Walk in silence

You decide to walk together in silence. There's really not much to say after all that has happened.
You walk through the plaza, enjoying the cool spring breeze. It's May, and soon enough summer will arrive in Yumegawa. It's nice to take a stroll while the weather's still close like this.
Hanazawa walks by your shoulder. Though there's still an air of unremarkability about her, you could now easily distinguish her from all the other [Mobs].

Aside from her pink scrunchie, you now notice something like the pink and black eyeliner that she wears. Though aside from that, the makeup she has on seems minimal.
And despite all that, she's still a cute girl.

"Yamada-san."
"Yes?"
"I have to apologize for my friend earlier..."
"Yeah, about that. Is it just me, or she wasn't talking or paying attention to me at all?"
"Well, you have to understand from her point of view, Yamada-san,"

"I mean, she's the one who took your photo in St. Agace."

Good idea, lets do some reminiscing.
But try to keep the hurtful memories at bay.

>>2127307
We might have been a draw or write fag if even a bad one, we might also have a college education depending on when we started the neet life
>>
>>2127273
...Eh?
You freeze. But how is that possible? She's a Mob Character. No way should she have any agency to take your photo right? It's impossible.
You're also a hundred percent sure she's not a main character. You're even starting to forget how she looks like now, only a few minutes later.
"Yamada-kun?"
"Hanazawa-san. Are you sure about this? That she's the one that took my photo?"
"Eh? Yes, I'm pretty sure. She sent it to me personally as well..."

So she's the aforementioned friend of Hanazawa that took your photo. But...she's a Mob.
She shouldn't have been able to take your photo.

5 AM, Sunday morning. You're jogging your normal route. Your dad, already enamored with another project, has decided to leave your work out up to you. Typical.
Your mind is still on the mysterious Mob character who had the agency to take your photo.
Once again you're matching the pace of Jogger Girl. Though her pace is improving, her endurance is still shot. She's already wheezing by the first lap.

I just thought of something. Are harem cliches a commonly known thing here? What would happen if he joined the literary club and wrote a light novel series starring a dense MC and his harem of strange girls.
>>
>>2127336
>Encourage her to take another lap
"Um," you just realized that you haven't actually talked to this girl before. You just matched her pace thinking it would encourage her.
"Er, Miss...I know you're tired...but I think, if we could push through one more lap, we're going to, er..."
You realize you're really not cut out for this motivational talk thing.

"...You could do it, Miss."

You observe her. She's looking at you, face blocked by loose strands of her brown hair and her humongous thick glasses. You thought she was going to trip from sheer exhaustion, but instead, she nods and even matches your pace.
You jog with her on your shared route. And somehow, you even finished it without stopping. It looks like it's just a mental thing.

Upon reaching the spot where you separated yesterday, you raise your hand again.
"See you, miss, this is my stop!"

You jog away, waving your hand. From the corner of your eye, you also see her raise her hand hesitantly.

You arrive home, sweaty and tired. Your mom is sitting in the living room, a rare sight. She's reading a newspaper.
"I'm home, mom."
"Welcome back. Say hi to Kei, Ken, he's in the kitchen."

You nod. Looks like your brother's home from Tokyo this weekend.
You head into the kitchen, and see him behind the refrigerator, looking for food.

"I'm home, Kei."
"Oh, aniki! Welcome back. You want anything?"
"Maybe some water or some milk? I'm thirsty."
"Sure...Hm?"

It seems he's surprised about something.
"What is it Kei?"
"You seem different, aniki."
"Different how?"
You don't really know how you acted before around your little brother.

"I'm not really sure...ah, I got it!" He stands up from the refrigerator and closes the door.

"Hm, well, I'm not really a devil. I'm as much as a devil as I am an angel. But saying it sounds cool, right?"
He says this while munching on a Gari Gari Kun popsicle.
"I call myself a devil because I'm the antithesis of the God of this world."
"...and who is the God of this world?"
"Isn't it obvious? It's the Main Character."
"But what about the higher beings?"
"Higher beings? Ooh, sounds intriguing! Do explain, Aniki."

"Well...isn't this an anime universe? So then the one's who control this world should be the authors...or the viewers..."
"Interesting theory. But you're wrong. This universe was created to serve one purpose and one purpose only: the main character's happiness. The Main Character is the highest being."
