You approach the guy waving at you, Nakamura Eiji...I AM REBORN IN A HAREM ROMCOM, BUT I'M ONLY A MOB CHARACTER?! 5By: BSGTwitter: https://twitter.com/bisugoQMArchive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=I+Am+Reborn+in+a+Harem+RomCom%2C+but+I%27m+Only+A+Mob+Character%3F%21
>>2144886First for cucking Eji
"Good morning, Yamada-san," he greets you."Good morning too, Nakamura-san.""How are you doing? Is your injury all healed up?"You pat your abdomen. "I'm not ready for exercise yet, but moving like this should be fine.""Glad to hear! Shame you couldn't join in PE later. At least you'll be keeping Rei some company."And with that, he pats the head of the girl beside her. You didn't even notice she's standing there.Tezuka Rei nods as a greeting to you.>Smile and say good morning>You go to school together, Nakamura-san?
Let's rock and roll f**********kers!!!!
>>2144889>Smile and say good morning
>>2144889>Smile and say Good Morning.Let's get off to a good start shall we?
>>2144889>>Smile and say good morning
>>2144889>You go to school together, Nakamura-san?
>>2144889Oh shit, Eiji is fucking Makoto?
>>2144909No, this is a romcom. He must be a lonely virgin for the greater good.
>Smile and say good morning"Good morning, Tezuka-san,"She moves behind Eiji's shoulder, as if hiding from you. Nakamura chuckles."Sorry about this, Yamada-san. Rei's been shy of guys since we were kids.""Is that so? I don't really mind.""But, Rei, you'll need to grow out of this in the future, you know..."She shakes her head and holds on to Nakamura's collar. "I only need you, Ei-kun."He laughs and scratches his head. "So, it's like this..."The three of you climb up the hill together. Along the way, Nakamura tries to make some small talk."It's pretty nice that we have soccer for PE, huh, Yamada-san?""Yes, I think it's much better than Physical Fitness tests inside the gym.""Right?" He smiles and faces you. "Yamada-san, do you like soccer?">Yes, do you?>No, do you?>Why do you ask?
>>2144926>No, do you?
>>2144926>Why do you ask?
>>2144926>>No, do you?
>>2144909If he is, it'll make us feel better by NTR-ing his harem and putting him on a boat.>>2144926>Yes, do you?Only football worth mentioning is the one run by corrupt patricians.
>>2144926>Yes, do you?
>>2144926>Yes, do you?Should we pretend to be interested in his hobbies?
>>2144936>the one run by corrupt patricians.But anon, that's both types of football.
>>2144926>>Yes, do you?
>>2144926>Not particularly, no. What about you?
Even vote, 4:4. Last call for votes?
>>2144926Y'all tried to leave me behind.>Yes, do you?It's honestly pretty fun.
>>2144978>>2144979Alright, no it is>Writing
>>2144980>pretty fun>more diving than actual diving events at the Olympics.>wearing wrong colors will get you shiv'ved
>>2144926"Not particularly, no. How about you, Nakamura-san?""Well, I like it. I'd even like to join the soccer club, but I'm not good with my feet. Not to mention, I'm with the Research Club now so..."You nod and wait for him to continue. Looks like soccer is one of his interests."Well, there isn't a player in class 2-1 to support...""Is that so?""And Ryou bugged me to help you join a club...""Er...""So, how about it?" He says with an awkward smile to you. "Why not check them out? The team here isn't half bad. Oh, you could even join the Research Club if you want! I'm sure the others won't mind.">Check out the Soccer Club>Check out the Research Club>Not really interested
>>2144997I mean casual games with friends. It's pretty fun.
>>2144998>Check out the Research ClubIt's honestly the perfect cover for our goals. It's not even suspicious since we can rightfully say he convinced us to do it.
>>2144998>Not really intereted.We're not joining the Research Club by any means and I'm not sure if we'd want to join any club at all unless MC joins it too.
>>2144998>Check out the Research ClubWrite in> What kind of research do you do?I don't want to get suckered into one of those 'do nothing' clubs
>>2144998>Check out the Soccer Club>>2144997>more diving than actual diving events at the Olympics.Not everyone plays like they're from Italy.
>>2144998>research clubWhat the hell does a research club do?
>>2144998>Check out the Research Club
>>2144998>>Check out the Soccer ClubAlso BSG you really don't need to make new threads quite so often, the first thread is still up for fuck's sake.
>>2144998>Not really interested
>>2144998>Check out the Soccer ClubFine, but I better have my own cheerleading squad.
>>2144998>Check out the Soccer Club
>>2145016I think they research
>>2144998>Check out the Soccer ClubGoing to the research club will GET US INVOLVED WITH THE FUCKERS HAREM
>>2144998>>Check out the Soccer Club
>>2145019damn, really? alright ill be more conservative with the future threads
>>2144998>Check out the Research ClubInto the lions den we go
>>2144998>>Check out the Research ClubBut no matter what DO NOT JOIN.
>>2145026this, let's stick with the original plan. watch and learn what likes and dislikes Eiji, only interact with the harem if there's no other way.
>>2144997>Check out the Research Club
I count 10:6 in favor of>Check out the Research ClubWriting.
>>2144998>Not really interestedGetting involved with the Research Club puts us at risk of idiot romcom shenanigans by the other girls.
Serious question, you guys really think that this might interfere with the plan to stay at a distance? If so, I'll rescind my support for checking out a club.
>>2145066Of course it will
>>2145060There's probably a female manager for the soccer club which would also lead to harem shit. we just need to stoically wade through the sea of girls without even a hint of the romantic
>>2145066We don't have to join immediately. There's nothing wrong with checking out a club before choosing which one to join.
Hold on, is the blue haired, childhood friend sleepy girl also in our class?
>>2145077Obviously, it's the harem club
>>2144998You have to continue your investigations regarding this world. And if what your brother said about the MC being the center of this universe is true, then the best way is to investigate his surroundings, right?"I don't mind dropping by your Research Club, Nakamura-san.""Oh, really? Great! How about the Soccer Club, Yamada-san? What do you think of my proposal?"You smile and shrug. "I'm torn on that, to be honest..."He nods. "I understand, sorry for springing it so suddenly on you."You arrive at the lockers and change your shoes."However, if you're interested, there are tryouts next week. That's why I was suggesting it too.""Is that so?" You keep that in mind. Soccer could be a good way to get an in with Nakamura."Well, let's go together to the Research Club later, alright, Yamada-san?"You nod.>cont'd
>>2145075Safer than getting directly involved with Nakamura's harem.
>>2145084I figure if we can figure out what the hell is going on fast enough things won't have time to collapse on us, we just need to avoid anything remotely romantic with the girls
>>2145082Class flies by, and soon it's lunchtime. You wonder if classes feeling so fast is an effect of this world being an anime scenario, or just because you've known of all this lessons before.With your free time, you...>Have lunch with Nakamura>Investigate Harem members
>>2145089>Have lunch with NakamuraIt's less risky and Eiji is more important to investigate anyways
>>2145089>Have lunch with Nakamura
>>2145089>>Have lunch with Nakamura
>>2145089>Have lunch with NakamuraHuh, maybe we'll make Nakamura reach [Happiness]
>>2145089>Investigate Harem membersDon't talk to the girls, just try to catch gossips. Let's see if we can find some weirdo who have info about the girls (And Nakamura)
>>2145089>Have lunch with NakmuraI mean, the harem members will probably show up anyways to eat lunch with him so we'll at least meet one.
>Lunch with NakamuraWriting.
>>2145089Class flies by, and soon it's lunchtime. You wonder if classes feeling so fast is an effect of this world being an anime world, or because you've known of all this lessons before.With your free time, you...>Have lunch with Nakamura>Investigate Harem membersYou approach the cornermost seat of the classroom, by the window."Oh, Yamada-san!" Nakamura grins as he sees you. "Wanna have lunch together?"His desk is combined to the table in front, Tezuka's desk. She's currently sleeping soundly."Pull up a chair, let's eat here."You grab the nearest empty chair, which incidentally, is Tokomichi's seat.>Your friend's absent?>Not eating with the other girls?
>>2145121>>Your friend's absent?
>>2145121>Your friend's absent?
>>2145121>>Not eating with the other girls?
>>2145121>Your friend is absent?
>>2145121>>Have lunch with Nakamura>>Your friend's absent?
>>2145121"Your friend's absent?""Hm? Ah, yeah. He usually is, sadly. He's a nice guy, so if you could, please be friends with him too.""Sure, why not?"You sit down on the table and bring out the bentou your dad prepared you. You were about to pull out your chopsticks, when you notice one of the table members is still asleep.>"Should we wake her up?">Whatever. "Itadakimasu."
>>2145153>WhateverLet sleeping dogs lie
>>2145153>>"Should we wake her up?"
>>2145153>Write inYou know...it's rude to sleep in the table, worse yet when people are going to eat in that table, maybe you should wake her up
>>2145153>"Should we wake her up?"
>>2145153>Poke her in the cheek a couple times.
>>2145153"Itadakimasu.""Itadakimasu."Both of you clap your chopsticks before digging in to your food. You worry about Tezuka falling asleep through lunch, but it seems your worries are unfounded.A few minutes after eating, you spy Tezuka's nose wrinkling, and she soon starts to stir."Ei-kun...""I got it, I got it."He digs into his bag and produces some melon pan. Tezuka accepts the food gratefully, and nibbles on the bread....Is that all she's eating for lunch?>Nakamura, what is your relationship with Tezuka?>Tezuka, would you like some scrambled eggs?
>>2145174>Nakamura, what is your relationship with Tezuka?
>>2145174>Tezuka, would you like some scrambled eggs?
>>2145174Ugfgh I want to say something to sleepy girl but. Universe is being a dick, so.>Stay silent.
>>2145174>Tezuka, would you like some scrambled eggs?Feed the tiny sleep girl.
>>2145174This >>2145180I really want to give her some food, but for now we should observe Nakamura and Tezuka.
>>2145174>Nakamura, what is your relationship with Tezuka?But like, not so directly man.
This is interacting with one of the harem, and as much as I like the character, I'm worried something negative is going to come from offering food. That's something thay can easily be seen as a romantic gesture to a girl like her.
>>2145192You'll need to write in specifics.
>>2145174>Continue Eating food and not give a shit.
>>2145174>Pretend it's not kinda weird at all>>2145087Could be tricky though, seeing as even friendly gestures are easily mistaken for romantic ones by the """system"""".
Even split all around. Last votes?
>>2145212That's the key thing we need to remember. Unless we Brute Force the situation, the universe sees things as binary. Romantic, or Not Romantic. Even Hanazawa, who we've managed to at least temporarily dissuade, is being forced to read stuff we do as romantic.
>>2145227I'll count this as the tie-breaker.>Writing.
>>2145174>>Nakamura, what is your relationship with Tezuka?
...oh yeah.That's another thing we need to remember everyone. The QM DOES NOT COLLATE. Even if the spirit of two write ins are the same, they count as separate selections to him. So we need to vote on the EXACT SAME THING.
>>2145230Pretty much, so I'll admit I'm a bit pensive about asking about their relationship because it could become all,>Oooh? Are you jealous, Yamada-san?
>>2145174"Hey Nakamura-san, what's your relationship with Tezuka-san anyway?""Hm?" He finishes munching on his food before answering you."We're childhood friends. She lives next door to me since we were 7. She's a bit of an airhead, so I take care of her at school.""Wow, that's pretty amazing.""Yep, we're good friends, aren't we, Rei?"Tezuka continues to nibble on her bread."...Ei-kun, idiot...""Eh, did you say something, Rei? Wait, oi, you're getting crumbs all over your mouth...!"He pulls out his handkerchief and starts wiping down the mouth of Tezuka. But with two tables in between the two of them, the whole affair is awkward."Yamada-san, could you help me with her?">Get the handkerchief from Nakamura.>Switch seats with Nakamura.
>>2145266>Switch seats with Nakamura.Simple and basic bait, easily avoided.
>>2145266>Switch seats with Nakamura.
>>2145266>>Switch seats with Nakamura.
>>2145266>Hand Tezuka the handkerchief
>>2145266>switch seats with Nakamura
>>2145291I know you want to waifu her but man, we need a cease fire on the waifu wars for now
>>2145266>>Switch seats with Nakamura.No teenager could possibly be this inept, bet she is doing it on purpose.
>>2145266>>Get the handkerchief from Nakamura.>>2145302You can talk about cease fires and waiting all you want but hanashita is gonna win if nothings done.
>>2145266>Get the handkerchief from Nakamura.
>>2145266>Get the handkerchief from Nakamura.Treat her like a child not a girlInb4 lolicons
"Sure," You grab your lunch box and switch seats with Nakamura."Thanks. Ok, Rei, c'mere..."As you eat your food, you watch as Nakamura helps Rei clean herself up. She struggles against him, but it's obvious she's not against his touch at all. All the time, her eyes are on him, glistening, twinkling."Ara, what a blatant display of public affection. Taking advantage of the brute class rep not being here, Eiji-kun?""It's not like that, Kobayashi-san..." he says to the woman behind him.Sure enough, the other top 2 beauty of the school, Kobayashi Mariko, is standing behind him, holding a four layer bentou box."...Hm? An unexpected visitor." She soon shifts her focus to you, curious.>Good afternoon, Kobayashi-san.>Say sorry and sneak away.>Write in
>>2145305No she's not, and as someone who doesn't mind her and in fact voted for certain encounters with her before the seriousness of the situation developed, I'm honestly willing to waive her off if we can come to an accord.
>>2145314>Good afternoon, Kobayashi-san.
>>2145314>>Good afternoon, Kobayashi-san.
>>2145314>Good afternoon, Class Rep
>>2145331I meant kobayashi
>Good afternoon, Kobayashi-san.>>2145331She's not the class rep.
>>2145314>Good afternoon, Kobayashi-sanOh shit I wasn't expecting both so soon.
>>2145302You don't have much reading comprehension, champ.
>>2145314>>Good afternoon, Kobayashi-san.Do not under any circumstances, let her think that we ARE SPY
>>2145314"Good afternoon, Kobayashi-san.""Good afternoon to you too," she says with the elegance of a princess. Her silver hair sparkles in the sun."However, I'm afraid we haven't been introduced before. How did you know who I am?">You're 1 of the top 2 beauties of the school, who *doesn't* know you?>Class rep told me about you>Nakamura told me about you
>>2145360>You ARE rather popular...Something relatively non-committal and not easily verifiable, nor can it be taken in any particular way or implication.
>>2145360>>You're one of the top beauties of the school, who *doesn't* know you?Keep calm and uphold the masquerade.
>>2145360>>Class rep told me about you
>>2145360>Nakamura told me about youKeep it neutral lads.
>>2145353I'm scared shitless of even giving her the handkerchief since that might still draw her attention
>>2145360This >>2145375"Everyone in school knows who you are."
>>2145368Changing to this >>2145375It's way more neutral than calling her a beauty.
>>2145375Changing to this
>>2145375This, saying she's one of the top beauties in the school doesn't sound like a great idea, but Nakamura would be a lie and mentioning the class rep could cast suspicion on us.
>>2145375>>2145392Same here, switching to this response.
>>2145375Changing to this.
>>2145392>>2145396Remember you can delete your old votes.
>>2145375This Anon knows what is good, supporting
>>2145360"Well, you ARE rather popular, Kobayashi-san."She grins."Indeed, indeed. Of course, how could I forget my own popularity inside this school. I should be used to total strangers knowing who I am by now! Ohohohoho~"...This woman...Nakamura sighs. "Knock it off, Kobayashi-san...""It was a joke, Eiji-kun. A joke."She returns back to you."I'm Kobayashi Mariko. Nice to meet you.""Nice to meet you. I'm Yamada Ken.""Kobayashi-san," Nakamura turns to the ojou girl. "Will you be having lunch together with us today?""Unfortunately, I would have to decline.""We could still make some room--""No need, Eiji-kun. I'm actually off to eat somewhere and just dropped by."You glance at the bentou in her hands. Seems like that wasn't the case until she saw you."Is that so? Well, if you say so...""Yes. Let's eat next time again, when there aren't any -pests- present."He groans and massages his temples. "Kobayashi...""It was a joke Eiji-kun, a joke." She smiles sweetly."Then, Yamada-san, Eiji-kun, Rei-chan, excuse me for now.">cont'd
>>2145461The three of you have finished your lunch and is now just waiting for the bell to ring.You see that Nakamura's ruffling through his coin purse."Looking for something, Nakamura-san?""Hm? Oh, nothing. I'm just going out to buy some drinks for us. Strawberry milk for you, Rei?""Yes.""Alright. How about you, Yamada-san?">Grab me a...>No, I'm good, thanks.>Let me buy the drinks.
>>2145479>Throw him some change>Grab me a...I don't really care. Iced Coffee maybe?
>>2145479>Let me buy the drinksBROWINE POINTS!!!
>>2145486I vote for Lemonade
>>2145486I'll throw my hat in for iced coffee.
>>2145479>Strawberry milkThat sounds disgusting. But maybe we should buy the drinks>Let me buy the drinks.
>>2145479>Let me buy the drinks.
>>2145479>Let me buy the drinks.I don't think Tezuka will talk to us. Rather, we might stumble upon someone on the way to the vending machines.
>>2145479>>No, I'm good, thanks.
>>2145479Assuming we have money:>Let me buy the drinks.Just feels appropriate.
>>2145479>Let me go with youEVADE BEING ALONE WITH SLEEPY DOG
>>2145479>Let me buy the drinks.It's what friends are for
>>2145479I'll come with you, someone's perfume seems to be a bit strong today.
>Let me buy the drinks.Writing.
>>2145479"Don't worry, Nakamura-san, let me buy the drinks.""Huh? Alright, uh, here's my payment..."Even Tezuka starts to reach for her her pocket.You laugh and wave them off. "Don't worry about it. Consider it my thanks for hanging out with the new guy.""Eh? I insist, Yamada-san...""I told you already, it's no problem at all."A few more back and forths happen, until at last he gives up and sighs. "Well, if you say so. Thanks a lot, Yamada-san.""Don't mention it."Even Tezuka is smiling and bows her head."Thank you."-------"...I don't really have a lot of money left though..."You wait as the vending machine spits out the drinks. You're running dangerously low on funds. You think about asking your mom for some money, but you have a hunch that it's a dead avenue. You'll have to follow up with Ryou on the part time job.As you grab the drinks, a couple of students pass you by. You glance at them. First years.Wasn't there another girl in the harem from the first year...?>Investigate here>Return with the drinks
>>2145535>>Return with the drinks
>>2145535>Return with the drinks
>>2145535>Return with the drinksWe need to investigate the girls but we should do that via proxy instead of putting ourselves in the limelight
>>2145535>Return with the drinksThe class rep was oddly stern about trying to minimize interaction with the other girls, so I say let's just ignore the harem schenanigans and befriend NakamuraAlso we should totally get that job in the arcade instead if it's still open.
>>2145535Eh, it'll be bad to keep Nakamura and Tezuka waiting.You return to the classroom with the drinks.>cont'd
>>2145570Soon, school is over, and you find yourself walking down to the Clubs wing with Nakamura."Say, Nakamura-san, what exactly do you do in the Research Club?""Well...from what I know, the original purpose of our club is for the collection and preservation of research materials. Newspaper articles, online articles, papers.""Is that so? Must be a pretty demanding club.""Not really. To be honest, it's been a long time since anybody has done any 'research' there...""Eh? What do you in the club, then?"He groans and scratches his head. "Stupid stuff, mostly...I'm surprised we haven't been shutdown..."Probably the universe at work there, Nakamura-san.As you walk through the clubs, you feel the gazes of people looking at you. They're...boring into you.Nakamura notices your discomfort. "Is something wrong, Yamada-san?">I feel like we're being stared at>No, it's nothing. Let's continue on.
>>2145615>>I feel like we're being stared at
>>2145615>>>I feel like we're being stared atCreepy
>>2145615>I feel like we're being stared at
>>2145615>I feel like we're being stared atinb4 BAD END
>>2145615>>I feel like we're being stared atThis is concerning.
>>2145615>I feel like we're being stared atGuys hold me, i'm scared
>>2145651It's probably just that MC has a stalker in his harem
>>2145657Oh yeah, we haven't seen a yandere yet, have we?
>>2145615"Nakamura-san. I feel like we're being stared at..."He looks confused, but then it seems like he comes to a conclusion."Ah, don't worry about it. It's probably from members of other clubs.""Huh, what do you mean?""Well...the Research Club isn't exactly the most productive or well behaved of clubs. We get this kind of stares most of the time. You get used to it.""...Huh."You feel that what he's saying is correct...And yet, at the same time, completely wrong."Well, here we are!"You arrive at the door to the Research Club. This was the place where you first spoke to the class rep properly after [Reawakening]. That time, you declined her offer of coming in."In we go, Yamada-san.""Yes."This time, you're willingly going in.>cont'd
>>2145678We're staying away from the other girls so it shouldn't be a problem
>>2145672I think Kobayashi might be the Yandere, but this is just speculation atm.
>>2145678No, It's Nakahara
>>2145708Kobayashi seems like she's the oujo and I don't think this world is subversive enough that she's secretly the yandere
>>2145709i'm okay with this
>>2145715>don't think this world is subversive enoughIdk about that anon.
>>2145727I mean shit is fucky when it comes to meta but so far the world still follows anime tropes
>>2145680The inside is a mess. It's more a storeroom than a clubroom. Along the walls, filing cabinets line the wall, as well as metal shelves filled with books. On top of them, boxes filled to the brim with yellowing papers are peeping out. Light is supplied by a cracked window, and a hanging light, decorated with a china ball.Only the middle of the room resembles a normal club room.There, a small table could be found with pillow cushions on the floor. A tea pot is boiling some water, and some snacks are strewn across the surface of the table.In there, sits three girls. Kobayashi Mariko, Tezuka Rei, and the kouhai, Fujibayashi Rinko.>Introduce yourself>Let Eiji introduce you
>>2145742>Let Eiji introduce you
>>2145742>Let Eiji introduce youOh boi here we go, lets keep the MC in the spotlight.
>>2145742>>Let Eiji introduce youI think this is the safe route? If we introduce ourselves it's a [Mob] taking power from MC, which is a no-no.
>>2145742>>Let Eiji introduce youWe should also clean this place later.
>>2145756Yep, this place is a mess
>>2145742"Guys! I brought a friend over. This guy's Yamada Ken, he's from the same class as me. He said he wanted to check out the club."The atmosphere is...strange. Stuffy, even if the room is well ventilated. The happy noises you heard from outside the room is...absent.Kobayashi Mariko is frowning. Even Tezuka Rei looks uncomfortable.Only Fujibayashi Rinko is acting normal."Nice to meet you, Yamada-senpai! You can call me Rinko-chan, tehe~!" She approaches you, grinning."Nice to meet you, Rinko-chan.""By the way, Yamada-senpai?""Yes?""What are you doing heeere~?"She says the question with a sweet tone, but in her eyes, it looks like she wants a valid answer from you.>I'm considering joining the club>Nakamura asked me to check out the club>"Nothing, sorry," then leave.

>>2145771"Nakamura-san asked me to check out the club earlier this morning, since I'm new around here."Nakamura nods to support your claim."That so?" Kobayashi stands from the table, still sporting that displeased frown."Eiji-kun. I didn't know we were...recruiting. In my opinion, this room is crowded enough as it is.""Are you joking again, Kobayashi-san?" Nakamura asks, chuckling."...I wonder.""Well, Ryou asked me to help in finding a club for him, and well, I decided, why not the Research Club right?""Oho? So this was all that idiot class rep's scheme."She stares at you. It's frigid."So, what, you asked that Hikaru Ryou to get you a good word in?">I don't have a connection with the class rep>Class rep just wants a club for me, it doesn't necessarily mean this one>Write in

>>2145813>"Class rep just wanted me to find a club to join, and Eiji recommended this one. But clearly I'm not good enough for the esteemed research club, so I guess I'll look elsewhere. I hear the soccer club is recruiting..."
>>2145813>Nope. Not sure what you're talking about, actually. I was thinking about a club, is all, and Eiji suggested this one.>Make sure to sell it with a confused look.>I'm guessing I'm not welcome here? If so, I'll leave, apologies. sorry, Eiji. Guess you weren't aware.The tactic here is to shift concern from them vs. us to them vs. Eiji, which they will back down from. We need to ACTUALLY LEAVE, though. This serves a dual purpose- it lets us get a bit of a read on them, and makes Ryou sound better to Eiji by making them appear to be bitches.
>>2145813>Class rep just wants a club for me, it doesn't necessarily mean this one>Is this some sort of hazing ritual?
>>2145813>Class rep just wants a club for me, it doesn't necessarily mean this one. I'm sorry if I'm intruding or something.>>2145830I'm gonna have to say definitely not this, lest we make them attempt the same thing that Class Rep already has and try to recruit us to help them.
>>2145813>Class rep just wants a club for me, it doesn't necessarily mean this oneOoooh boy they have a one-penis policy here.
If we choose >Class rep just wants a club for me, it doesn't necessarily mean this oneThen they'll probably shove us out to some other club and consider that their good deed for the day, and shift things so that if we stay around, it'll be considered offensive in some manner since 'we' took Class Rep's advice, but not theirs. It doesn't make sense, but harem logic.We need to make sure the issue is between them and Eiji, and leave ourselves out of it.

>>2145846let's make this bitches feel badsupporting
Damnit.The entire POINT of my write-in was to avoid mentioning Ryou in any particularly major aspect, period. They're going to presume we're defending Class Rep if we mention her in any related aspect. The idea was to make it sound like we had no serious personal contact with her or major knowledge of her, and she simply was doing this as either a small favor or just duties as a Class Rep.
I'll remember to delete my original vote as well to make damn sure that my current vote gets in.Folks you might want to do that as well, there's no telling what the game or it's master truly expects from Us.
>>2145915Votes are already in, it's a good idea for the future
Then stop with the write in's. It feels like they cause half the mess we're in.
>>2145915>tfw even the voting system wants to screw us overThis quest is bad for my heart man.
>>2145813"I don't know what you're talking about. Class rep just wanted me to join a club, then Nakamura-san suggested this club. That's it.""Is that so? Then might I suggest a different club, Yamada-san?""Oi, Kobayashi! You're being really rude right now." Nakamura has stepped forward to protect you."Am I? I think I'm just acting normally, Eiji-kun.""What I think Mariko-senpai is trying to say," Rinko-chan interjects. "Is that we're uncomfortable with a new guy entering into the club. Especially since he's a boy.""But I'm a boy too!""Yes, but Rinko-chan knows you. Rinko-chan doesn't know Yamada-senpai. He might be using you to get closer to Mariko-senpai and Ryou-senpai, right?""Wha-- That's ridiculous!"Nakamura is getting more and more baffled. You think it's time."Nakamura-san." You tap him on the shoulder. He looks back at you, confused."I don't think I'm welcome here at all. I'll be taking my leave.""Huh? No wait, Yamada-san, let me talk to them--""Don't worry, it's alright," you say, laughing it off."Kobayashi-san. Rinko-chan. Tezuka-san. I'll be taking my leave. Sorry for intruding."Rinko smiles and waves you goodbye. Kobayashi stares, but says nothing. Tezuka is staring at the table, looking sorry for you and at herself for not speaking up.>cont'd

>>2145950Nah your thinkin of true ending where we become MCs husbando and beat out ALL the bitches.>>2145952LOL
>>2145952>So when is the episode that the murders start happening? I thought this was a thriller where the characters have to outfox the killer and unmask them.
>>2145952How do we know we're being watched? I mean Bro definitely could be lying about an audience not existing but we don't have any proof for it either
>>2145936You exit the club before Nakamura could stop you. You hear the sound of arguing inside when you left."...Phew." Maybe it's time you head home and consider another club.As you make your way to the gates, somebody bumps into you. You feel something wet splash into your uniform."Sorry," the Mob girl says, but she doesn't stop her walking.You look down on your clothes. Green tea stains your white polo. You sigh. It'll come off, you think...-------You were on the foot on the hill, when someone calls you out."Heading home, Yamada?"You turn around. The first thing that catches your eye is the dirty blood red dye she's wearing.Nakahara Fumi is leaning against the rail, eating. She reaches out a plastic bag to you."Meat bun?">Go to fighting stance>Leave and ignore her>"...Is there a discount for meat buns today or something?"
>>2145968>>"...Is there a discount for meat buns today or something?"
>>2145968>Appreciate it, but I'm good. Lotta those going around today, though...
>>2145968>"...Is there a discount for meat buns today or something?"Grab it and say thanks
>>2145968>"...Is there a discount for meat buns today or something?"She'll get mad if we ignore her we have to thread the needle of being polite without doing anything that even has a hint of romance
>>2145968>>"...Is there a discount for meat buns today or something?"As we take one and eat it.
>>2145968>>"...Is there a discount for meat buns today or something?"Fighting stance is some autistic shit, and she's a potential ally.
>>2145968>Go to fighting stanceWrite-in>Is this a trap?>Take it anyway
>>2145968>A wild Nakahara appears!
>>2145968>"...Is there a discount for meat buns today or something?"
>>2145968>>>"...Is there a discount for meat buns today or something?"
>>2145968>"...Is there a discount for meat buns today or something?"And what about her meat buns
>>2145968>>"...Is there a discount for meat buns today or something?">It's not spoiled, is it?
>>2145968>Accept the meat bun
>>2146006Changing to this.
Also we should probably be concerned about that mob character spilling stuff on us, I dont think QM threw that in there for giggles.
>>2146006>Hey Nakahara...i want your meat buns
>>2145968>>"...Is there a discount for meat buns today or something?">>2145952Truly the epitome of 2DPD
>>2146025It might be petty revenge from the person staring at us or something
>>2146025It's the universe driving us away from there.>>2146026KEKI wonder how she would react to this.
>>2145968"...Is there a discount for meat buns today or something?""There is. Only idiots buy things full price. Want one?"You approach her and take one. Only idiots refuse free food, after all.Nakahara spots something."Yamada. What's that?""Hm?" You notice her gaze is on your uniform. "Ah, a girl a while ago spilled some green tea on me.""That so."Nakahara crouches down and picks at the ground."Are you looking for something, Nakahara-san?""Pebbles.""Er, why?""Yamada.""...What is it?""I expected better from my oponnent.""...I'm confused. What do you mean by that?"She stands up and dusts off her knees."You've been sloppy.""What?...If you're talking about the green tea, the girl was the one that bumped into me--"You were cut off by Nakahara throwing a stone at you.>cont'd
>>2146025Probably.Also:In one fell swoop all of those girls' standings have DROPPED LIKE A ROCK compared to Ryou's. The question now is, how to proceed without making ourselves too much of a target. They're not going to take this lying down, and chances are they're going to try and rectify that mistake and improve their standings by TRYING to do nice things for us to 'make up for it'.Don't fall for it. Let them stew in the sewage for a bit. Wave if off and just smile and walk off like 'nah, they're/it's not worth it.' But, we can take the time to observe their actions and see what they're trying to do to attract Eiji.
>>2146025>Mob Character>Actively spilling something on us>We had a earlier feeling of someone watching us with the MCThat's No Mob, That's the Stalker interest.
>>2146041Yeah, they kinda fucked themselves by being visibly catty to the point that even Eiji noticed it.
>>2146039You didn't even have enough time to react. The only thing you could do is close your eyes and cover your face.You wait for the pain.It doesn't come.You hear the zoom of the stone as it flies past you. It would never have hit you.You follow the trajectory of the stone. It hits a bush."Agh!"A boy stumbles out of the shrubbery, and runs away before you could say anything.Nakahara stands there, tossing a stone on one hand, while eating a meat bun."You've been careless, Yamada Ken."(TO BE CONT'D)
>>2146056Yeah, it's a delicate dance we have to do- and that means that we CAN'T be seen around Eiji too much, else they'll cotton on. We've gotta split with him for a couple of days, and let them hang themselves more with their efforts at damage control.
>>2146069Whoa, it seems we warranted the attention of our peers...
Fuck those bitches, let's build our own harem and start the first waifu war.
>>2146069>we've been followedI bet it's the glasses dude.
>>2146069...Que?Not quite sure what THIS all is.
>>2146069And so the plot thickens
I'm guessing we aren't the only ones who have been making shadowy alliances with harem members.
>>2146032>It's the universe driving us away from there.It could also be an in-universe set-up. Mob characters sent out by the oujo to harass us into leaving Eiji alone or something along those lines.
>>2146069Man this is some 4 dimensional chesspoolpoker BS goin on right now. We need info on glasses bro STAT.
Oh, the girl must've used green tea to mark us as someone to follow. Then they sent someone to track us. Interesting, but who could be the one following us? I'm betting the Ojou wanted someone to keep an eye on us.
>>2146069Holy shet, Maybe we can ask to Nakahara to interrogue this little spy. Nothing too violent, but enought to make him speak.Also, thanks for this fun session QM. I had a lot of fun
>>2146089>>2146091>>2146092>>2146094You guys really think that?...Excellent. I'm all for some more players in this game. I've been having a lot of fun coming up with these little plans so far. I always DID enjoy strategy games.
>>2146069First, we should thank her.I'm guessing the green tea wasn't an accident, it was to mark us as the target for... something.Maybe one of the harem girls put them up to it? Likely the oujou. Also, we're Nakahara's rival AKAher potential Love Interest
>>2146104Lead us to glory StrategyAnon
>>2146117I'm pretty sure he's just role playing that or the QM is getting even more meta
>>2146141Why not both?
We're a mob character with no distinguishing features, so it'd make sense for someone to mark us with something so that they know who to follow. Clever, but it makes me wonder if the one who ordered it did it for the sake of the spy(i.e. you don't know how he looks like, use green tea to mark him) or for meta reasons(he's an indistinguishable mob character, use green tea to give him a distinguishing mark, albeit temporarily).
>>2146091>>2146094Yup, you were right, it was definitely a setup.Ojou might have been planning this since afternoon because she couldn't have lunch with Eiji. The fact she kept quiet and didn't react while we were leaving could mean she didn't want to be seen through.>>2146141>it's actually our brother driving our actions through write ins
>>2146155Could we delete our brother from existence by reporting him?
>>2146155We need some counterattack on the ojou.Class rep is on red right now so our chance of info is the kouhai and delinquent.Better make our own A-team harem
>>2146141I'm actually not. The spoilers was just me being cheeky.I took a bit to shower and came up with some plans for the next day. I won't spoil them all.But we should look into bringing green tea for lunch for the next few days.
>>2146165Making a harem might trigger a bad end, we really need to confront our mom about what the bad end is so we actually know what might set it off
>>2146175That's a good idea also we should explore our city, see where the limits of this world are. And search for allies, because i have the feeling we are going to need them.
>>2146199I would like for Nakahara to be a valuable ally.He attac and she also protecc
Guys.Instead of fucking with the harem, lets just hang out with Hanazawa san for a while. We ccan get some of the pressure off us from the universe/the harem girls who dont like us/whatever. She said she wants to date us, but we are busy doing investigations on some stupid shit. Instead lets start dating her and put investigating the harem as a side priority.
>>2146212We can date Hanazawa once we know it's safe, let's not waifu anyone until we know what's going on
>>2146212Won't work- the universe is all about attraction, period. Any girl we hang out with, regardless of harem affiliation, runs the risk of being attracted to us and vice versa, and cause massive issues.We need to hold off on dating ANYONE or even showing remote signs of attraction until we can figure out how to better manipulate this universe.
>>2146199Maybe we should lay low for now?Perhaps try to keep contact with Eiji to a minimal, just enough to learn more of him.>>2146168I look forward to your plans, anon.>>2146209>>2146212I do like Hanazawa a lot but Nakahara is definitely a valuable ally. I don't think Hanazawa will be happy if she finds out we've been associating with her.
>>2146212t. Ojou who wants MC-kun all to herself
>>2146228We've got to avoid romancing nakahara though until we know how the universe works, I don't know if we can thread that needle while still getting her as an ally
>>2146227>>2146224It seems to me that getting near harem girls causes problems. Mob characters form couples fairly often in harem shows, Hanazawa should be fine to go for.>>2146228What does Nakahara have to do with us not involving ourselves overly much with the Harem?>>2146236Why do you want to romance the delinquent? Hanazawa is clearly the best girl who already wants to date us.
>>2146212We don't know her or Nakahara well yet.Let's cross that bridge when we get there
>>2146238Just trying to ally with Nakahara might trigger a romance, personally I don't care about the waifus though
>>2146228Maybe we should try to awaken whoever we ally with? Bro was lying when he said him and us were the only people awakened in universe since mom knows about bad ends, he might be lying about awakening others as well
>>2146238Nakahara could help us with information about the lives of the harem girls outside of school, like if they have a part time job or something while we try to learn more about Eiji.>>2146251I wonder if they would zero sum like in TES lore and phase out of existence. They'd probably call us crazy though.
>>2146258We can test it with randos on online chat boardsAlso if possible our eventual waifu should be awakened
>>2146270We should definitely explore the internet of our world when we get home.
>>2146270Don't worry, Nakahara is clearly waiting for us in some capacity.So it should be fine until she loses her patience
>>2146270>>2146275Explore the internet of this world is an excellent idea.
>>2146270but arent we doing this? chatting an online board?
>>2146114Yamada is the person only Nakahara will defeat, or be defeated by.
One thing we absolutely should do before we romance anyone is to see if there are any other students dating in the school. Maybe the universe doesn't allow students other than Eiji to date.
>>2146315We could start a thread on in universe /x/ trying to convince people they're in an anime
>>2146212Support. By openly dating someone/having a girlfriend, we can can reduce the risk of romantic shenanigans when interacting with others. Putting it off will just dig ourselves deeper people...
>>2146212How about no.
>>2146889I agree with romancing Hanazawa but we still need to get closer to Eiji while we do so. I feel like staying away from the majority of the harem is a good idea though after that encounter. My gosh I could feel the hate they had for Yamada through my phone.
I can already see ojou taking advantage of the situation and inviting us back to the club too look like the good guyWe need to avoid her at all cost and have class rep take advantage of the situationIt would provoke extreme passive aggressiveness from the girls and would let us mold the situation like puddy
>>2147453That's basically what I expect, as well, should this be the case. I'm not confident we should be so skittish should the girls show up- but at the same time, I don't think we should be around Eiji too much either, simply due to the fact that they may begin to see us as an intentional obstacle to get in their way. As of now, they're not sure if we're allied with anyone or not- but considering that someone might've tried to put a tail on us, then they're at least suspicious. We need to ring up Ryou, tell her she has an opening, and that we need to CUT OFF CONTACT for several days as she makes her move.This will give us time to investigate the world, and we'll be able to work on figuring out the harem as they try to approach us to make amends with Eiji (not us, EIJI). We need to be careful to not look like we're snubbing them- rather, we need to just act like they're nothing special and not worth messing with, a lot of 'nah, I'm good, thanks', with the occasional confused or 'innocent' statement, maybe. A lot of the ideas I have in mind are dependent upon the next day or so to see what direction the harem will be going in in order to make it up to him- for example, if they decide to just write us off entirely, the plan changes.
>>2147708For the moment it seems you have a solid plan, I really like the first part, by the way we have the phone number of Ryou?
Running in an hour
>>2147708Same ID here, just for reference. Not at my usual computer.
>>2147790I think so.
You make your way home, being way more vigilant than you have been. Every streetlamp looks like a shadow, every bush a hiding spot.But despite your awareness turned to max, Nakahara on the other hand, is walking without a care in the world."Yawn..."It's true that it wasn't her that was being followed, but she really is just lazily strolling after all that's happened.>Why are you so lax, Nakahara-san?>Why did you protect me?

>>2148274>>Why did you protect me?
>>2148274"You seem really lax, Nakahara-san."She glances at you, but returns to her casual stroll."It's cause they're amateurs. Your follower probably took initiative on his own, rather than being ordered. There won't be more for today.""However, we've really done it now." She says grinning. "Things are just gonna get worse from here on out.">What do you mean, 'worse'?>What do you mean 'we'?

>>2148355"What do you mean by, 'worse'?""Exactly that. You've made enemies, Yamada.""With whom?"She smirks. "With the collective."...What the hell is that suppose to mean?"Look." She stands still, and you listen for what she has to say."You've been careless. And now, some people are out there to wage war on you.""War?" That's a big word, but she seems serious. "What makes you say that?"She walks up to you and points to your chest. The green tea stain."I've seen this all before." She looks up at you. "This is just the beginning."She steps away from you."You'll need allies.">I prefer operating alone.>Why would I need allies?>Will you be my ally?

>>2148424>Who are the collective?
>>2148424"And why would I need allies, Nakahara-san?""Because what you're heading into is a war of attrition. Being alone is exactly how they want you to be."You frown. "You keep on saying 'they'...or 'the collective'...why are you being so vague?""I'm not." She shakes her head. "It really is 'you' against 'them', Yamada.""I still don't understand.""You'll understand it eventually." She kicks the sidewalk. Something tells you she knows about 'them' firsthand."...Then, why are 'they' coming for me?""How would I know? You acted out. You did things you shouldn't. Talked to the wrong people. That's usually how it goes."You remember the stares of when you were heading to the Research Club with Eiji. Is that...?"Well, whatever. As far as I see it, you'll either need powerful allies, or allies to hunker down with and wait it out. Up to you, I don't really care."She's being awfully helpful, for someone who beat you up only a few days ago.You try to push your luck."Well then, Nakahara, will you be my ally?"She raises her eyebrows in surprise, but then,"...Ha! Fuck off, city shit. I'm not your friend. After all this blows over, you still owe me a rematch.""And what, you're gonna use a box cutter this time?" You taunt her."Who knows? Now you're pissing me off. I'm out."She turns around, but before she leaves, she tells you something."If you want to ally with me, two things."One, prepare to beg."And two, prepare to lose everything.">cont'd
WE GOTTA KILL THE SYSTEM
>>2148538You arrive home soon after."I'm home.""Oh, Ken-chan, welcome back! I'm just preparing dinner."You hear your dad shout from the kitchen. The smell of meat cooking wafts through the house.You immediately dump your stained clothes on the washer and change to your casuals.Tomorrow's the weekend, which means you could relax....Or that's what you wish you could do.You have decided to continue your investigations. You'd like to ask your mom about [BAD END], but she isn't home yet. So for now, tonight's mission will be-->The neighbor>The past>The internet
>>2148566>>The internetGreatest resource.
>>2148566>The neighborWe can do mom and the internet at night.
>>2148580This is for the night.
Collective, huh? That's interesting. I got a hunch as to just what this Collective is, but I wonder if we can't get a little bit out of the neighbor.
>>2148607I wonder if our mom and dad might give us combat training, they seem like the kind of people that have the potential to have kicked some form of ass. Of course this is just a guess but it wouldn't hurt to ask them.
>>2148630This, our dad seems like a cool guy i hope he can teach us how to fight
>>2148566Tokomichi Endou.The man closest to Nakamura Eiji.Something has always been tripping your warning bells when he's around. Why?"Dad, I'm just going to check something out outside.""Don't be long!"You walk out, thinking about how you're going to spy on him. Climb to his house? Casually enter and introduce yourself as the neighbor?But as you were thinking that, you see that your worrying is not needed.Tokomichi is looking out his bedroom window, staring at the moon. He has a thick cover on, and around him are crumpled up tissue papers, used. He pulls another tissue out of the box and blows his nose."...So he was sick after all..."You notice that he's shivering with the night air, but he still stubbornly stares at the moon. Indeed, it's a beautiful full moon tonight.He sighs, smiling, and then closes the window and curtain."A man of simple tastes, huh, Tokomichi..."You shake your head and walk back to the house.It isn't him. He wasn't the stalker. You would've been able to tell, his goofy look stands out too much.You head in as your dad calls for dinner. Now that you mention it, the lights in his house are all closed bar his room. Is he home alone sick?>cont'd
>>2148630We could also ask about the collective
>>2148653Tonight's dinner is salisbury steak."Let's dig in!" Your dad roars.Your mom still hasn't got home, so it's just a dinner between you and your father. Once again, it's delicious, but right now you have something else in your mind.""Dad.""Yes, Ken-chan? More meat?""Actually--">"Could I use the computer after dinner?">"Could I ask about you and mom?"
>>2148666>"Could I ask about you and mom?"
>>2148666>>"Could I use the computer after dinner?"
>>2148666>>"Could I ask about you and mom?"
>"Could I ask about you and mom?"Writing.
>>2148666>"Could I use the computer after dinner?"Really just want to double-check my hunch real quick.If this Collective is what I think it is, fighting won't help us much.
>>2148688What's your hunch?
>>2148688Is the QM running a parallel quest where the people in that thread have a different best girl for the mc?
>>2148688If you share your hypothesis you might get more supporting votes.
>>2148688Maybe not, but being able to quickly take down opponents will help us get away faster without them chasing us down.
>>2148693Well, think about it. She said that what we did was 'talk to the wrong people'.That's a fairly short list.I think we're dealing with Fanboys/girls. People who want their particular girl to wind up with the boy. In short. An in-universe ship war.
>>2148697If he is, it's not on /qst/. that would be a good gimmick for a quest though
>>2148688Is it the harem, or the anime directors?
>>2148666"Dad, could I ask about you and mom before?""Ahaha!" Your dad laughs and takes a sip of his beer."It's a wild story, Ken-chan. And as much as I'd love to tell you our stupid tale, your mom will be mad at me.""Mom? Why?""Cause it's more her story than mine." He says smiling. "It's a story with a lot of skeletons, Ken-chan. Best not bring it up until your mom says it's alright."You want to protest, but your dad moves fast. He brings an arm around your shoulder, and starts ruffling your hair."But, oho~! Our Ken-chan is finally growing up and getting curious about love! Hey, just between you and papa, are you pursuing any of the girls from the other day?">Yes>No
>>2148709I think the collective is one group though and it would be weird for there to be universal agreement on best girl. I think it would be more likely that there's a conspiracy to deny Eiji happiness so as to preserve the world. That or we're actually in an urban fantasy setting and it's just now reared its head
>>2148723>NoThings are to weird right now for romance
>>2148723>No.More out of deflection of concern than anything else. Mom might hear.
>>2148723>Yes, ManyWas mom a Shoene hero?
>>2148723>Maybe, I dunno, it's complicated
>>2148725No, my idea is that the collective is a group of fans that simply want him to fight over there selected individuals, and anyone who runs the risk of interfering in that fight needs to be removed.
>>2148738Going harem is definitely a bad idea
>>2148723Not yet pops, why? you want a grandchild?
>>2148739Does this count as yes or no? We're pretty much tied
I count 7:4 for No>Writing.
You're all pussies.
>>2148782>Liking any of the girls when they haven't been developed enough yet
>>2148794The only one who hasn't had much development out of the four girls we've had proper interactions with is our running buddy
>>2148800It honestly hasn't been enough for me to get attached to anyone yet, then again I don't waifu easily
>>2148723"Er, no dad.""Ehhhh?" Your dad looks disappointed. "You could tell your dad, you know? I'm actually pretty good at keeping secrets.""Again, it's not really like that..."Your dad sighs and leans back on his seat. "Well, if you say so. Just remember, your dad is ready to give you love advice anytime you need it, alright?"You nod. "I'll keep it in mind."You return to your meal."Ken.""Yes, dad?""This is just a guess, but...your mom asked you to cut off contact with them, right?"You almost choke on your food. Your dad just smiles."Thought so.""H-How did you--""Ahhh...that woman. Do forgive your mother sometimes, Ken-chan."His smile is melancholy. "She might be more competent than your father, but Akane's actually pretty clumsy in her own way. When she said that, she probably didn't mean to cut off all contact *literally*. Well, maybe she did, I don't know with her sometimes, haha!"So, don't be too hard on her okay? She's your mother after all."You hear the front door open."I'm home..."Your dad puts up a finger to his lips and winks. He stands up from the table to greet her."Welcome home, dear.">cont'd
>>2148816After dinner, you ask your dad if you could use the computer."...Eh?" For some reason your dad looks baffled."Is there something wrong, dad?""Nothing, but...well, it's in the garage."Garage? You wonder why it's over there, until you see the device."...What the hell is this..."It's a box computer. Probably made sometime in the 1990's. There's no way you could check the internet with this piece of junk."...How in the world did this family survive without a computer..."But, well, being a past NEET, a computer has always been standard. You wonder if for normal families, that isn't the case...-------"Ah, you wanted to check the internet, Ken-chan?"You nod. Did your family live under a rock before you [Awakened] or something?"Well, if I wanted to search something on the net, I just use my phone.""...So that trash is our only computer in this house, huh...""I mean, why would you need a computer if everything you need is on your phone already right?"You sigh. Normies...>Ask dad to borrow his phone>Ask mom for your phone back
>>2148853>Ask dad to borrow his phone

I hope we can get our mother alone for a few minutes. I want to ask her a question.
How long did mom say she's keeping our phone?
>Ask mom for your phone backWriting.
>>2148874If i remember right it was for a week
Things we need should think about stocking up on over the weekend based of SoL 'Them' types.- heavy duty cleaners for when "They" vandalize our desk.- rubber bands and noise makers to set up elaborate boobytraps on our shoe locker- pocket mirror to surreptitiously monitor our surroundings- a length of chain to hide around our arm under our cloths for worst case scenario and a direct confrontation occurs.
>>2148903Actually, I wholeheartedly back each and every one of these preparations. Heck, I forgot to mention the pocket mirror myself.
>>2148903Running out of funds though.
>>2148908We can get a job
>>2148903We should also train ourselves to be able to weaponize anything we can get our hands on. Lord only knows how far THEY are willing to go for victory. Best not take any chances.
>>2148853You've decided to ask your mom for your phone back.You find her sitting in the living room, reading some papers."Mom.""Yes, Ken?""Well, I've been grounded for a while now...And I've properly reflected on my actions on skipping school...so, er..."She looks up at you, before returning to what she's reading."So you want your phone back.""Yes, mom."She puts her hand in between her cleavage, and pulls out your phone."...Moooom...""Don't be mistaken. If it were up to me, I'd be keeping your phone for longer. But I'll be out of town for a while, so I need a way to contact both you and your father."She tosses you your phone.You're surprised to find it's a flip phone from who knows how long ago. Some of them have internet capabilities, right?"Don't spend too much time playing with your phone, even if it is a weekend."You don't think this thing even has games...>Head to your room and start internet investigation>Ask mom about [BAD END]
>>2148914>Ask mom about [BAD END]
>>2148914>Ask mom about [BAD END]I know you're trying to protect me and I don't mean to pry but I need to know to stay out of trouble
>>2148914>>Head to your room and start internet investigationMC-Kun, don't you doubt the power of the Japanese Flip Phone
>>2148914>Don't worry, I'm just doing some stuff for a club. You said not to be in contact with my friends anymore, but it would be bad if things ended so quickly, huh?Watch her face as you say the words bad and end. Check how she reacts, and follow up from there.
>>2148914>Ask mom about [BAD END]Risky option, but we need this information.
>>2148914>>Ask mom about [BAD END]If she wants privacy, head back out to the car. We need to know what exactly could trigger it, as well as fully confirm she's awakened.If it's just interacting with the harem too much we can easily cut that down.
>>2148922Not looking for anything big, just a blink or a mouth twitch.
>>2148903>>2148908>>2148908We could probably find some of this stuff around our house. I wonder if the job will be harder to get now that [they] are out for us.>>2148914This >>2148922While I'm afraid of asking directly about the [BAD END] this works fine.
>>2148903It sounds stupid, but a stack of coins grasped in your palm can make you punch a hell of a lot harder, and is much less suspicious than chains.
>>2148914>>Ask mom about [BAD END]
>>2148935Maybe we could ask her why she was mad about our friends instead? I don't think pissing her off and hoping it leads to something more will work
>>2148914Before you head up to your room, there is one thing you have to ask your mother. There might not be a chance for a while."Mom."It looks like caught the seriousness in your tone. She turns and faces you."What is [BAD END]?"She looks at you with unchanging expression. Then, she sighs and fixes the papers she's reading."If you want me to tell you..."As she passes by, she says her condition."You know what needs to be done. Burn all your connections.">cont'd
>>2148903I also support this,and>>2148912>>2148914>>Ask mom about [BAD END]
>>2148952>>2148955Dangit, too slow.I need to type faster.
>>2148952Renegade interrupt.>Is that how you made sure you won dad?
>>2148908we were a hobo once, did we not learn how to urban scavenge at all? We don't need quality materials.>>2148914>Head to your room and start internet investigationdo we really think we can get useful intel from this line of questioning? So far whenever we get info from others its been suspect or partial and we've been riding this rail of rubbing our nose right on the main story-line. We should go back to being a shadow gather Intel ourselves rely mainly on [Mob] contacts maybe build up a relationship with our neighbor, although that is also a construct of the setting since he moved in next door right after we did.
Wait...what if this [Bad End] is ending as a NEET again?
>>2148952"How the hell do you connect with this thing..."You've been fiddling with the flip phone for a while now. It's been ages since you've had one.You were about to give up when your phone rings.You look at the caller ID. Your blood runs cold.You answer."...Hello?""Yo, Aniki! I heard you got your phone back. Thought I'd check up on ya, you know?">How are you doing?>You were lying to me.
>>2148968>You were lying to me. that or you were somehow wrong
>>2148968>Thought you knew what I was doing already.>So, what's up with you?
>>2148968>>You were lying to me.
>>2148968This >>2148975Let's try to keep a casual conversation.
>>2148968>How are you doing?
>>2148968>>You were lying to me.There are more that are aware.Give answers.You already know the questions.What is the [BAD END], and why don't we have a quality computer?
>>2148952does that include [Mob] connections>>2148967Unlikely since for her to tell us about it would be to become NEET and She doesn't seem to be a fan of [BAD END]
>>2148968>How are you doing?He wasn't necessarily lying but he likes the persona of devil and thus probably took a deal of enjoyment giving us partial info.
>>2148975For the record, this is basically>How are you doing?With a more casual air.
>>2148968>How are you doing?No point in demanding answers from someone who considers themselves the devil.
>>2148983who else is aware? We broke our [Mob] role, we don't know who the They are yet but they are a common trope in anime school settings.
>>2148968I only just now saw the influx of how are you doing votes, sorry about that."You were lying to me, Kei.""Geez, not even asking me how I am? Well, whatever. I'm doing fine, by the way. So you think I was lying?""That, or you are wrong.""Aw, Aniki, I didn't know you've had so little faith in me all this time. It kinda hurts.""Well, I don't know if you'll believe me when you already mistrust me this much, but I guess I'll try anyway."Listen, Aniki. I have not lied or misled you in any way so far. All that I have told you is the truth."You are taken aback. What...is he saying?>[BAD END]?>Only one [Asleep]?>Why are you telling me all this anyway?
>>2149028>>[BAD END]?Tell me what you know, fuckboi
>>2149028>>Only one [Asleep]?This then>[BAD END]?
>>2149028>>[BAD END]?Also, when are you coming home to hang out with your Aniki?
>>2149028>What do you know about Mom, then? What's this [BAD END] you both fear?
>>2149031Maybe he has been telling the truth, but only the part that was true at the time, rather than all of it?
>>2149028>[BAD END]?>Only one [Asleep]?He did also say that us and him were the only people awake though
>>2149028>>[BAD END]?How can I hear the damn brackets?!?They don't say brackets or do air quotes, but I know the things they say are related to how this universe works. How does this work?
>>2148968How are you doing?
>>2149028>>[BAD END]?>>Only one [Asleep]?
>>2149028>[BAD END]?>Fuck is with the [brackets]
>>2149028>[BAD END]?>Only one [Asleep]?
>>2149028>[BAD END]?>Also what the fuck is up with the [Brackets] and how can I hear that shit?
>>2149038>>2149028>why tell me all this anyway?>When are you coming home? Shit gets boring.
>>2149028"B-But...what is [BAD END], then?""It's not what mom thinks it is, is the answer."You are shocked. How does he know...?You hear him giggle in the other line. "Why do you still doubt me, aniki?""Then, how does she know about it?""It's because of my relationship with her. She's the [Meta Character]'s mother. She's aware of some things, but being just a character in this universe, it's flawed. That's why.""So she's not [Asleep]?""I already told you, right, Aniki? You're the only one."You still find it a hard pill to swallow. Should you doubt him? Believe him?"You still sound conflicted, aniki...tell you what, why don't I give you proof that I'm on your side?">Alright>No thanks
>>2149071>Alright, tell me about The Collective
>>2149071>AlrightWe shouldn't trust him though
>>2149080>>Alright, tell me about The CollectiveAnd did you have a girlfriend while you were in my spot?
>>2149071>And that would be...?
>>2149080I'll back this. Also, back home again.
>>2149080>>2149089We should also ask about [bad end]
>>2149081>>2149080saying alright means "Give us what you offer" and thus trusting him. same as asking for his input. let him rub his hands in the background all he wants he fucked off to tokyo because he didn't want to play the game and that caused us to get dragged into it. He only got back in because hes an ass and is trolling us.
>>2149099We can choose not to trust him, I say we let him "help" us and then draw our own conclusions from there
>>2149071>It's because of my relationship with her. She's the [Meta Character]'s mother. She's aware of some things, but being just a character in this universe, it's flawed. That's whySo that means our dad has meta knowledge too, like our mom
>>2149120Unless he's lying
>>2149071>Sure, and how the fuck do I access the internet on this phone?
>>2149108except BSG has a tendency to run with threads outside of player intent and by saying Sure we trust you will have our character trusting him even if a hand full of people said they didn't want to. On top of that Hes a [Meta Character] the fourth wall doesn't exist for him and hes reading this thread.
>>2149133>hes reading this thread.CrapSTOP BEING A SHIT [Meta Character]
>>2149149There's no proof of that, it is a possibility though
>>2149124I kind of believe him when he said he didn't lie, Devils in most incarnations are known for being dishonest with complete honesty.
>>2149071"So, you're going to tell me what the collective is?""...Eh? Well, I have a different thing in mind actually. But if you want to know, telling you isn't really any problem.""Then, please.""...Well, er, I don't really know what you want. It's already pretty self explanatory, right?"You raise your eyebrows. That's almost the exact same thing Nakahara said earlier."Anyway! I promised you something better, aniki. Proof that I want to help you.""...Alright, then. What is it?""Great! I'll send it over. Oh by the way, please don't call me everytime you have a question, alright? It's annoying, and I probably won't help you anyway. I shall be the one calling you...woah, saying that is kinda cool huh! Well, bye."Click."...Hello?"You check your phone. He's gone.Your phone vibrates again. It's a message from your brother.It's a phone number, with a simple message attached.TECH SUPPORT :)>Call tech support and ask how to connect to the internet>Ignore it
>>2149168>Call tech support and ask how to connect to the internet
>>2149168>>Call tech support and ask how to connect to the internet>Oh by the way, please don't call me everytime you have a question, alright?Little shit, he was the one who called us, not the other way around.
So he answered absolutely nothing. Just FYI.
>>2149168>Call tech support and ask how to connect to the internet>inb4 our brother is not the devil but a stalker with a incest fetish
>>2149168>>Call tech support and ask how to connect to the internetAlso ask to download ram, and what to do if the computer won't turn on.Also didn't answer our question.Gotta search for collective.
>>2149192Maybe it's just the popular kids or something?
>>2149187What did anyone expect from asking the damn devil a question? An actual answer?
>>2149168>>Call tech support and ask how to connect to the internetI'm glad it wasn't a phone number from another dimension.FINDS A WAY.
>>2149191WEW, didn't call us a disgusting NEET?
>>2149168You dial the tech support number."...Hello?""Ah, yes, good evening. Is this tech support for XXXXXXXXX? I don't know if you still support this model, but I've got a problem conn--""Yamada-kun?"You freeze. You didn't even realize you know the voice."...Hanazawa.">cont'd
Okay, so this is just one big-ass game. Interesting. Everyone's a player with a part to play, and we're trying to flip the script.
The collective is pretty self explanatory so long as there isn't an extra-dimensional spin to it.Options are-Eiji fan club, we threaten the perfectly balanced harrem with all of them providing just the right counter to the others leaving him technically single-Oujos guard(if females) Oujos Knights(if male) they see you as an interloper getting to close to their Oujo-sama-fan club of any other of the Harem, less common but not unheard of-Social order police. Nippon doesn't like standouts and the tallest blade of grass gets cut.-[Mob] antibodies, we stepped out of our role as a [Mob] least bullshit of the extra-dimensional fuckery that could potential happen and we know there is said fuckery since [Erasure] has [Brackets]>>2149215Warned you guys
>>2149215Heh, Hanazawa's part time job is tech support?Explains why she's doing programming too.
>>2149215An awkward silence on the line. She's not speaking, which makes it even harder for you to say anything....That bastard Kei..."So..." Somehow, your hearing has become super sensitive. You could hear her twirling her hair on the other line. "I don't recall giving you my number, Yamada-kun.""S-Sorry, I'll--""Don't hang up." You hear her spinning on her chair. You're positive that that should be impossible. "I'm just wondering how you got it. I'm not mad.""I...got pranked. I didn't know it was your number, honestly.""Yeah, I guessed so. You thought I was...tech support?""Yeah. I'm having trouble connecting to the internet with my phone.""Hmm. That is a problem, huh." You hear the clacking of her keyboard. Is that a mechanical? "I'm afraid that company shut down some time ago, too.">So it was just a stupid prank, after all.>Wait a second...Kei's a genius.
>>2149256>>Wait a second...Kei's a genius.I don't know where this leads, but fuck it.
>>2149256>Wait a second...Kei's a genius.
>>2149256>>Wait a second...Kei's a genius.I wonder if she could make the internet work on our old computer.
>>2149256>>Wait a second...Kei's a genius.
>>2149256>>So it was just a stupid prank, after all.
I think the point is that she'll be our internet researcher that can find things out without us getting fingered for it. Not sure, though.
>>2149256>Wait a second...Kei's a genius.Alrighty let's see where this lead us
>>2149256>Wait a second...Kei's an ass.He didn't lie but we shouldn't ever compliment him, he has cheat codes and he uses them to troll. I'm not actually mad at him but it does mean he gets 0 props from me at least.
>>2149256>>Wait a second...Kei's a genius.GODDAMMIT
>>2149256>Wait a second...Kei's a asshole.
>>2149273>>Wait a second...Kei's a asshole.Supporting
>>2149273Switching to this
>>2149271>>2149273I like those.
>>2149256>Wait a second...Kei's a genius.It's not real tech support, but i'll take it.
>>2149256>Wait a second...Kei's a genius.I mean, if he ever shows up at home again we're gonna noogie him so hard for this, but it's not really a bad thing.
>>2149273Voting for this, it feels more appropriate to the situation at hand.
>>2149256"Hanazawa, could you search the web for the model..."You were never getting a tech support number, since the company has shut down long ago. So instead, Kei gave you the number of your most technically competent acquaintance."Sure, no problem." You hear her clacking away on the keyboard again."Where are you searching, Hanazawa?""Hm? Oh no, I was actually going to a board to ask...""...You even know about boards...?"After sometime, she returns to you."Thanks for waiting. And...well, sorry. From what I got, it seems to be a model that could only send e-mails and make calls."...Nevermind, Kei's an asshole. He could've just told you that instead, that bastard."Well...Yamada-kun, what are you going to do now?">Buy a new phone>Buy a laptop>Any suggestions, Hanazawa?
>>2149300>>Any suggestions, Hanazawa?
>>2149300>Any suggestions, Hanazawa?
>>2149300>Any suggestions, Hanazawa?We're almost cashless, so buying things is a no-go until we get them jobs.
>>2149300>>Buy a laptopAsk Hanazawa for help getting to the store.And what are good brands, and other questions.Just don't make it like a dang date.
>>2149300>Any suggestions, Hanazawa?>>2149268This guy's suggestion ain't so bad, also can't we go to a library or something or is that not safe enough?
>>2149300We must waifu the Hanazawa.In all seriousness though:>Any suggestions, Hanazawa?
>>2149300>>Any suggestions, Hanazawa?Tell her about our old computer too.
>>2149323not a fan of Hanazawa as a waifu, Shes way too jealous even if we do give her assurances that we go exclusive she is going to be a major wrench that can pop up during any encounter with any female character.
>>2149339That's more on the universe than on Hanazawa
>>2149300just get a job instead of a club. fuck.or blackmail the ojo for money or we'll join her club.Fuck, its like im reading a light novel.anons man the fuck up
>>2149300"I don't really know...Hanazawa, do you have any suggestions?""Well, if you only need a way to surf the web then of course a mobile phone would be more affordable. But then, you can't deny the usefulness and power of a laptop, especially if you don't have a personal computer yet. Ah, but mobile phones nowadays are powerful in their own right..."You couldn't help but let out a chuckle."...Yamada-kun?""Nothing, just ignore me. I just thought that doing tech support might be a good calling for you after all.""...Is that so?""Yes. You have a nice telephone voice.""Hmm..."You hear her finger tapping on the table."Then, dear customer, I think that warrants you to be fathered into the extended service.""Extended service?""That's right."You hear her take a deep breath."Front of the station at 11."Click>cont'd
>>2149345>or blackmail the ojo for money or we'll join her club.Hell tell her to pay us to stay away from Eiji, she'll do it.
Things to do:1- Learn how to fight2- Punch my devil brother in the dick3- Get a job4- Touch Nakahara meat buns5- Try to not get [FUCKED] by the universe
>>2149344No, nearly all our interactions with her have been "Hanazawa why are you mad? Im not in a relation ship with the female character I am currently standing next to."
>>2149349inb4 she sends nudes
>>2149352No way man Eiji is cool guy and I want to genuinely befriend him. Can't be doing that if we're going around blackmailing/taking bribes from his friends to avoid him.>>2149339I dunno, she got jealous at first but seems to have calmed down quite a bit. Didn't even get suspicious of us with the class rep in our house.Although admittedly, I do find a pinch of possessiveness cute. I would be warded away if she got mad about us hanging with Eiji since it meant we were all around a bunch of other girls, but I don't think she'd do that.
>>2149349Hanazawa is one smooth tech support operator there.I almost expect her to do a SHAFT headtilt.
>>2149369He does seem like a nice guy but for now he's a hazard to be around. We should avoid him anyways, might as well get payed to do it.
So Hanazawa visits 2chan right? I don't know how to feel about that
>>2149354thats whats called strait priorities>>2149352this also seems like a viable option, unless the mob is hers. also possible wrinkle is she is a false Oujo. You know the one who was super rich but now her dad is under investigation for embezzling and she is just putting on airs hoping no one notices. Ultimately making the MC of an acceptable social strata and the one to come to her aid and support her financially in the happily ever after scenario.>>2149369Hes the MC, We should stop getting involved with the main arc We are inside a [Mob] and people have taken notice which is a bad thing.
>>2149349In a surprising twist of fate, you wake up at 10:30 in the morning."Oi, Ken-chan, slow down!""Can't dad, I'm gonna be late!"You sprint out the door before hearing what else your dad has to say.You wonder if this is a part of your little brother's scheme, after all...The station is some ways away from your house. You feel the vibration of your phone in your pocket. You know who it's from, which makes you run even faster.By the time you arrive at the station, it's 11:20.Hanazawa stands under a tree, phone still in hand, twirling her hair."...You're late, Yamada-kun.""S-Sorry..."You wonder why you somehow or another, you always apologize.And why she always responds by smiling and shaking her head."It's ok. Sorry for acting mean.">So, what did you call me here for today?>As a guy, you should take the initiative
Funny thing? I don't feel like this impacts my plans much yet. The general idea ALL still seems to be the same.-Keep away from Eiji and Ryoufor a couple days-Keep ourselves in a position where the harem feels the need to make amends to us-Investigate the world.Just now we've added on -Watch out for the Collectiveonto that. Hell, I'm wondering if there's a way we can't turn this to our advantage if we play our cards right. Just need to know EXACTLY what 'The Collective' IS. Not educated guesses, the official word.
>>2149398>So, what did you call me here for today?
>>2149398>So, what did you call me here for today?What do you have in mind?
>>2149398>>As a guy, you should take the initiativeBuy her a drink for making her wait.
>>2149398>>So, what did you call me here for today?
WAIT SHIT, we need to call Ryou. Tell her the field's clear for a bit, so take the shot.
>>2149398>As a guy, you should take the initiative
>>2149398>TAKE. THE. INITATIVE.
>>2149398>>As a guy, you should take the initiative
>>2149398>>As a guy, you should take the initiative>>2149407This.>>2149409Let her rivals trip over their landmines for a while.
Gonna be honest, I have no clue what 'take the initiative' means in this context.
>>2149418Do something romantic, take the lead
>>2149418Treat it like a date instead of acting as a dense mc
>>2149418Roll a twenty-sided die and add your dexterity modifier.Duh.
>>2149422>>2149424I thought we said no dating until things got cleared up?Is waifuing really that irresistable?
>>2149417Could mean a bunch of things.-tell her how nice she looks-talk about what we've been up to(make it short though)-ask if there's time to get a bit to eat-ask how her day is going-open with a corny joke
>>2149398>So, what did you call me here for today?>>2149418it means progress her route, this is a bad thing because it makes her a more violent landmine that can pop up at any time when we are alone with another female character. which means we would need a write in with every such encounter to counter the worlds love for relationship hi jinks. We need to keep her friend zoned for now.
I think I count 9:7 for initiative.>Writing.
>>2149434Apparently people like to see the world burn.
Rolled 6 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>2149426
Remember when we agreed on that extreemly detailed write in when we decided to burn the shit down when Eiji and Hanazawa showed up in a rail locked romance scene?Remember how it was completely undone because we didn't mention our Dad in that write in?if we waifu Hanazawa we will need to have a write in that specifies how to deal with Hanazawa every time we are in any situation that she might take as threatening our relationship.
>>2149398>So, what did you call me here for today?We don't wanna place the nail in that cuckoo clock yet.
>>2149398"So, Hanazawa," As a guy, you need to take up the initiative here. That's what you stayed up late for, right?"There's a good movie showing, I've heard that the ratings are pretty good...ah, but if you're hungry right now, there's this nice italian place that opened recently...um..."Hanazawa looks surprised at first, but then she giggles."...Hanazawa?"She steps forward and fixes your bangs. She likes doing that, you noticed."I was actually thinking of going over your options on what to buy.""O-Oh..." You feel your face growing redder by the second.She grins and pulls out several sheets of paper from your bag."I forgot to ask for your budget, so I searched for cheap options as well as value for money ones. I have several choices for both laptops and phones, too.""...Uh-huh."She looks up from the papers, smiles, and goes on her tip toes to whisper in your ears."I'm free for whatever afterwards, though, Yamada-kun.""H-Hanazawa!" You glance around. "Too close...someone might see you..." You swear that you saw some classmates earlier, too."That so?""Yeah...""I don't really mind, though?""...Eh?"Her smile has not disappeared at all. "Well...if you don't like it, we could always call this whole thing off.""What are you...oi, Hanazawa, wait for me!"You start to chase for Hanazawa."At least, let me buy coffee for you as an apology.""OK. Thanks, Yamada-kun."You see where this leads, for now.>cont'd
>>2149456I'm fully behind such player interaction!
>>2149456Not to mention now that we have a nebulous group aiming at us, congrats, Hanazawa's now a possible target to get at us emotionally.
>>2149481They may stop aiming at us if they think we just a normie though
>>2149487Possible, but unlikely if they can hold a grudge anywhere nearly as badly as we anons can.
>>2149481Then we'll smack every fucking twat that try to bother Hanazawa, we'll protect her smile
>>2149492We just have to get them to realize that we're with Hanazawa and her being the class rep's friend is the only reason we ever interacted with class rep and Eiji's crew. Once they think it's all incidental and that we're taken they'll ease up.except those die hards that just want someone to shit on but there's no chance of getting rid of them at this point anyways.
>>2149487we wont be a normie, we will be a relationship having side character and thus prime hi jinks targets. Oh hay double date episode andother two hundred posts managing Hanazawa instead of breaking down [brackets] and getting the world to work for us instead of having this doom a Damocles hanging over our heads all the time.>>2149494and get suspended from school for fighting pushing us into more interatctions with Nakahara which will trigger Hanazawa landmines.
>>2149473You decide to pass through the small park to find a vending machine."Here you go, Hanazawa.""Thank you."She accepts your apology with a smile. You try not to worry about the sorry state of your wallet for now."Actually...could you excuse me for a second? I just need to just fix myself up."She nods, sipping on the can.You go to the nearest comfort rooms in the park. You wash your face and fix your hair in front of the mirror. That was embarassing, you think, you need to make up for that."...Might as well go while I'm here..."Just as you turn around, the urinals are occupied by two guys. You make your way to the stall to take a leak.Flush.You push the door out the stal--Er, you pull the door--The door's stuck. Just as you were about to curse your bad luck, you see two sets of feet outside the door."You sure we got the right guy?""Yeah, it's him.""Alright. Hold it down."(TO BE CONT'D)
>>2149507KICK THAT FUCKING DOOR DOWN!
>>2149507PISS ON THEIR FEET
>>2149509No, the key here is to not panic. Be ready, yeah, but don't panic. Depending on what they're here for, we might be able to trick them. I doubt they'll listen to reason, but we might be able to get some info out of them before we make our move. Or, possibly, we could get on top of the stool, and hop the barricade if there's no one in the others, and get them to talk a bit, or just run.
>>2149507SHIT!Let's hope our victory against fake ginger wasn't a fluke.
>>2149507Kick assailant #1 in the testicles.Then punch #2 in the throat, but nod hard enough to kill, then stomp #1 again, then go for #2 one last time.Then call Hanazawa to come and open the door.
>>2149507>YOU DARE DEFY ME, THE SON OF MOB PARENTS!
>>2149507inquire as to their intentThen brace the back of the stall and Kick the door!I suggest we just fucking throw down in any situation where anyone steps up on us outside of school. We aren't actually a teen we aren't even from this dimension and we have a mission.
>>2149507I told you, this could have all been avoided. What are we carrying on our person? How tall is the stall? We need to formulate the most efficient route. Bust heads first ask questions after.
Those fuckheads are denying us our internet access! And also our date, but more importantly OUR INTERNET ACCESS!!!!
>>2149507Tactical Kick the Door off it's hinges. Thou Shall Not separate a man from washing his hands.
We shall summon our inner Spider Jerusalem and stomp some ass.
Having been here before, take off the toilet reservoir cover and swing after kicking the door open.
There's the possibility that someone is recording what is going to happen. If we fight and win then most likely our ass is getting suspended, if we fight and lose then the video is send to everyone in our school for lulz
Do you guys really think we're strong enough to kick the door down?
>>2149573Nip public toilet, its probobly one of those in floor types.
>>2149573Can we get the scoop behind that? Also does anyone want to roll for door kicking effectiveness?
>>2149573>>2149564>>2149551>>2149544>>2149537>>2149527>>2149523>>2149521>>2149517>>2149516I would like to point out that there's lots of hard surfaces in a public bathroom, and that the air dryer makes a nice club to wield. Also don't be afraid to slam skulls into toilets.
Regarding the future sessions:-So far, we've been doing a regular 1:00 to 5:00 UTC run almost daily. As much as I'd like to continue that, it's looking unlikely on my end.-Expect the next few weeks up to around mid to late January to have an inconsistent schedule. Not just on start times, but on days we're running as well.-The most I could commit for now is 2-3 sessions per week (subject to change) Start times could also vary as well.-Possible start times: 16:00, 20:00, 21:00, 1:00 (UTC)-------I would like to say, thank you so much for reading Mob Character quest. Your write ins and reactions are what keep me motivated to continue writing. My commitment is that there will be a proper end for to this quest no NTR or BAE shit, I swearNo run on Sunday. Monday is 50/50. Tuesday is a definite run day, though.
>>2149579Those doors are so flimsy they'll break the lock off if the door doesn't just shred the thing open.>>2149584But milf so hot, can we at least share?
>>2149584Thanks to you man, i really have fun playing your quest.
>>2149597Can we go all Hotline Miami on the two guys in the bathroom stall is what I want to know.
>breaking the door open>breaking any property hereHow are you going to pay for that genius? And no, the store won't care about who started it.
>>2149611You ever see that ninja warrior show? Do you think we can replicate the spider man wall climb thing then elbow drop from above.
>>2149611Fuck that, just leave
>>2149611So what you're saying is we should murder them quickly and with as much less mess as possible.
>>2149611That's implying we sick around long enough for that to matter
>>2149611It's a public restroom out in the park, all we have to worry about is cctv and the police being able to identify us.
>>2149614You're in the wrong anime for that.>>2149617If it comes to a fight, and it probably will with how small a restroom is, just don't break anything. We haven't even got a job yet.
I say that, as quickly as we can, just crawl straight under the stall door and make a run for it. Like it or not, we're outnumbered and without a weapon.
>>2149625Seriously, fuck that. If the store tries to make an issue of it, sue them for not providing adequate security in their store. This is Japan ffs, you can bully businesses for any little thing.
>>2149630We aren't in a store! It's a public restroom in a park! There's no one around to get mad!
>>2149627Maybe so, but it leaves the question of whether or not We're really able to outrun these two. At least with the Assault Blitz we'll have the advantage of surprise. Of course this is if the [Universe] isn't gonna fuck us over by having these two be ultra good at kicking ass AND running.
>>2149625its two on one, and even though we aren't our old fat NEET self we still aren't in fighting shape. Alpha strike is key here. The only reason Nakahara didn't win with her fight with us is she didn't immediately follow up after her opening strike. Our only objective is to get out of here and have them fucked up enough to seriously question a follow up and to spread the word to the collective.We arn't some samurai, we arn't some main character, we are an extra-dimensional creature wearing a [Mob] as a skin suit.
>>2149625>Implying you couldn't pull that off IRLI've seen some miraculous things friend. Ever lay witness to a 350 pound man do a back flip?
Alright. We're caught in a public bathroom by 2 guys who are probably bigger than us. This is no bueno, but by no means unwinnable. First things first, we need to gather our bearings. These guys seem like they're waiting for someone or something to come get us, so I doubt they'll try and break in, giving us a good amount of time to figure out a plan. With that in mind, I suggest we:>A- Take the toilet seat as a weapon and go full retard.Once we break out, it'll be pretty hard to stop us considering they'll be surprised to see us. Initiative is key here, just be sure to wipe down the seat first.>B- Use the walls and climb over the top - parkour style.While we won't have a weapon on us, we could probably hold out after the initial assault long enough to either grab a towel bar or get the fuck out. That said, this approach is the most versatile since once we got up on the wall, we'd quite literally have the drop on them. ba dum tss>C- Sneak out the bottom into another stall. Once there, we can go for them at another angle, provided they don't see us of course. I'd say this plan is mostly for escape though. We have a chance of sneaking away if they expect plans A or B. The thing is, once we decide a course of action, there isn't gonna be a chance to go back. These guys are gonna go rat us out if we don't outright kill them, but if we escape we have to protect Hazanawa if there isn't a rule against hurting other [MOBS] or [MAIN CHARACTERS]. I'd say trying to escape is our best option as of now. We could try and lose them in the park or head into a store with Hazanawa if we can't shake them.
Also if Hazanawa is part of the collective and was luring us here all along I will be a very sad man
>>2149690I would not be surprised, but it would be a revealing experience and be proof that We should NOT TRUST A DAMN MOTHERFUCKER IN THIS WORLD.
>>2149690Its a little fishy now you mention it, I'll put faith in her until we see proof though.
>>2149690I mean, if she is, well, all i'm saying is, aside from a nut shot, we could over power her... god if she turns out to be a secret agent for the mob collective... i may make rash write-ins... but if our brother is to be believed its not like she's a real person so... god damn, this feel i'm feeling feels feely
>>2149705We must believe in her, we must believe in our Hanazawabut i'll be very sad and angry if she is with the [Collective]
>>2149734Oi, don't go confusing people the Collective doesn't have [Brackets]
>>2149690Shit man why do you do this to me?
Just call or text dad or some shit. Given his powers as [The Meta's Dad], he's probably right around the fuckin corner anyways. How do you think we kept running into him so 'coincidentally'?
>>2149473You don't go to movies on the first date, you damn NEET! The first date should be something where you can talk to each other.
>>2149891Better yet, call the police.Thast would be a completely unexpected move.
>>2150026That's just asking for the police to arrest us on false pretense.
>>2150026Police are pretty much useless in Animeland.
>>2150026>>2150042>>2150201pretend to call the police to scare them off?
>>2149891This honestly. Fighting just feels liie a very bad idea, at least on our own. Let's call our dad, maybe try to text Hanazawa, and then stall ba-dum-tish for time.
>>2150201That's because no one calls it.
>>2149601Awaken my betashttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNE2oCZH_4k
>>2151105That's it mane
>>2151035I mean that the're useless in the sense that the're always either 1. Corrupt and in cahoots with the people trying to fuck us over 2. So incompetent that they make Barney Fife look like Sam Fisher in comparison or 3. Have the life expectancy of a gold fish if shit hits the fan.If We do call the cops, our best chance is that they either end up having guns on their person that we can swipe and use on the bad guys or use them as disposable distractions.
>>2152031>So incompetent that they make Barney Fife look like Sam Fisher in comparisonKEK
>>2152031Who do you think we are fighting? These are most probably just highschool [Alpha Mob] characters.
>>2152224I expect to be fighting anime characters, and if there's one thing anime has shown me is that fucktons of bullshit tends to happen when fists start flying regardless of who the [character]/[side character]/[mob] is.
Maybe we can get a janitor job at the school?make it look like we're getting bullied for having a dishonorbal job and make the girls look like even bigger bitchs by doing the one thing no other janitor does, clean the research club room
>>2152249Don't Japanese schools make the students clean the building as a way to teach responsibility?Remember hearing this and am genuinely curious if it's true.
>>2155235Ill be sure to save my hype for another hour then.
If there is one thing the 'collective' hate and fear, it's exposure.Just say," Why not call Eiji here?"I am sure it would fuck up yours, theirs, and everyone's lives here
>>2155250>calling a bro while on a date Bad idea
>>2155250Shall I get you a fine Red Wine with your Cigar for this self imposed nuclear bombardment?
>Thread 5>Still haven't cucked MC out of entire haremWhat exactly are we doing?
>>2149584>no NTR or BAE shit, I swearboooI wanted a river of anons salty salty tears. >>2155343being bitches, just like real life
>>2155343Trying to make a single girl win the MCbowlAlso the harem girls seem like bitches
