Iwata Riho, the new transfer student, is threatening to break you and Hanazawa up...I AM REBORN IN A HAREM ROMCOM, BUT I'M ONLY A MOB CHARACTER?! 12By: 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%21The Parable of the Moth : https://pastebin.com/dCj6wYNV
"Please don't think of me as a bad guy, Yamada Ken-kun," Iwata Riho says smiling, bowing with one eye closed. "It's nothing personal. I think both of you are a really good fit.""But I need to do this for the greater good, y'know? I'm just here to restore the balance, that's all. We're even in the same team, right?"She grins."I also want [True End], Yamada Ken-kun.">Why do you have to break me and Hanazawa up?>What's your affiliation with Kei?>Who are you?>Write in
>>2893027>>Why do you have to break me and Hanazawa up?
>>2893027>Why do you have to break me and Hanazawa up?
>>2893027>Write in: "I don't know what you mean with true end or anything but i don't see how you breaking me and Hanazawa would make it happen. You are just like those people that want to bully me."
>>2893027"Then why do you have to break me and Hanazawa up?" You grit your teeth. "She has nothing to do with all this.""But you do. Right, Yamada Ken-kun?" She twirls around, as if bored in your conversation. "The [Damned] has messed with the balance of this world too much. Now I've been sent to fix it. And that mission entails me having to inflict you a little bit of pain."She swings around her arm as if holding a whip."I'm doing this out of love, Yamada Ken-kun. Like a teacher hitting your palm with a stick, or a parent with a belt. Please do cooperate, Yamada Ken-kun. You'll thank me later~">Like hell I'd allow that>Who in the world are you>What's your plan>Write in
>>2893148>What's your plan>Who in the world are you
>>2893148Where is all this [Damned] talk coming from? This feels like an ass pull honestly.
>>2893148>What's your plan
>>2893148>If you have to hurt me, I just ask that it's done in a way that doesn't hurt Hanazawa. She doesn't deserve pain. I'm the [Damned] one, not her.
>>2893148"Who in the world are you? What's your plan?!""I'm Iwata Riho." She says with a tongue out. "But you can also call me the Angel of this world.""...Angel?"Why does this introduction seem familiar?"Well, I'm not really an angel. I'm as much an angel as I am a devil. But angel sounds really cute, right?"Iwata Riho squats down in front of you."I call myself an angel because my mission is God's mission."God being...The [Main Character]."I don't want to hurt Hanazawa, Yamada Ken-kun. And especially not you! But this is to punish the [Damned]. A test of whether you're up to the task.""The [Damned]...why...is this because of my past life...?""That's not it at all!"Iwata furiously shakes her head."The [Damned] needs to be punished because he almost destroyed the plan, destroyed the balance. You know of [Erasure]?""...""We're talking the [Erasure] of all this,"And Iwata motions toward everything around her."So what's your relationship in the face of losing everything?">I don't care about any of them>Please, there must be some other way>Do what you must, but I don't want Hanazawa to get hurt>I won't let you break us apart>Write in
>>2893279>Please, there must be some other way
>>2893279Addendum:>You do realize that I know nothing about your plan and what I have to do or not do to not disrupt it?
>>2893279>Do what you must, but I don't want Hanazawa to get hurt>And for what it's worth, I haven't intentionally tried to destroy anything. It's just that it seems like no matter what move I make, something else comes along to throw a wrench in the plan to get the [True Ending]. I just can't seem to see the right way to approach the matter.I'm hoping this gets her to let us in on what specific moves need to be made. These meta characters have been way too dodgy!
>>2893304and >>2893312>The reason WHY so much shit has gone off the rails is because you guys are so dodgy on what the rails ARE every damned time I ask. So I'm left to just guess!
Like, real shit. This is a common anime trope in and of itself- people don't communicate obvious shit, so things get worse and worse. Howsabout we DON'T play into that stereotype, huh?
So if she STILL decides to be extra cagey about it...then whatever else happens is officially not our fault since no one thought it'd be a good fucking idea to set us straight. If we end up taking a torch to the world, it's because no one told us that shit was flammable.
I think we should take a more calm and reasonable approach to talking to her.I mean, she's here to punish us, after all. Maybe we shouldn't be potentially worsening the punishment with a harsh tone.It's why I worded mine the way I did.
>>2893388Fair enough. Probably shouldn't have sworn so much in my addition, but I pretty much agree with yours.
>>2893279"There must be some other way..." You try to bargain with Iwata. "If something must be done, then...as long as you don't hurt Hanazawa..."She shakes her head. "I'm afraid that's impossible, Yamada Ken-kun. You have to break a few eggs to make an omelette, right?""Then tell me what to do!" Your fists are clenched. You try not to be angry, but frustration is starting to settle. "It feels like everything I do...""But you do know what to do.""...[Happiness], right? And am I not doing my part? Am I not following your words?"She grimaces. She draws on the ground with her finger."Tell me, Yamada Ken-kun. Is making Kobayashi Mariko suffer protecting you 'doing your part'?""...""Is forcing Tezuka Rei to act on her own because you lacked conviction to support her, 'doing your part'? Did showing up in the Research Club, which made Fujibayashi Rinko lash out, 'following our words'? Or getting Nakamura Eiji beaten up by that friend of yours, [Happiness]?""That's...""I'm not saying all of that is your fault. Some of these things are brought about by you merely existing..."She removes her finger from the ground and points it at you."But it is your existence that caused this. One who's existence is to fulfill the purpose of this world. You took up the challenge of redeeming yourself. You want to live a noble life? Do you think your existence so far has been 'noble'?"Iwata Riho's face was serious for a second, but then returns to her usual goofy smile."Your relationship right now is extraneous. And that is why I'll destroy it.">I won't let that happen>I didn't wish for this to happen>I'll do it myself>Write in
>>2893414>I'm only human. I'm not an [angel] or a [devil]. I don't know what the consequences of my choices will be, I just make them hoping they won't end badly. I can't predict the future, or see the different paths laid out in front of me. Tell me this much, Iwata - was the game rigged from the start? Or are my choices just that bad naturally?
>>2893414>That doesn't make ANY sense. I didn't MAKE Mariko do anything, I asked. She agreed. I didn't force Rei to do anything either. I suggested, she agreed. Showing up in the Research Club was a decision I made, and Rinko lashing out was a decision SHE made- and decided to stop. Eiji getting beaten up was bad, of course, but we discussed the situation and it won't happen again.>It sounds like you don't want anyone to actually WORK for their happiness. I was a NEET, yeah, but even I know that the reason my life sucked was because I didn't TRY. I don't want to make that mistake again- and I don't want these kids to make that mistake at all. That's all I'm trying to do. Do I think my existence has been noble? I can only trust that I've been doing the right thing for these kids in the long run so far.>True Happiness takes effort. It's not instant. It's about recognizing your faults and living your best life trying to fix those faults, not getting everything you wanted on a silver platter without learning anything. And if that's all you're after? Instant Happiness?>Then I'll have to just oppose you as much as you do me. Because that's not Happiness. That's just letting them live in a gilded cage.
Really though, fuck this bitch.
>>2893457+1She's just going to cause drama, which will effect [God]. Seems she's the one doing harm to him.
>>2893457Works for me. Maybe not the guilded cage part that's just going on too long. Sounds better when you just end it at that's not happiness.
>>2893475Yeah, I was iffy on that myself, but threw it in anyway.>Subtract the gilded cage sentence.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EsU4SETCz4 Found this song that actually is a pretty good explanation of our stance, I think.
>>2893414Goddamit, I feel like I'm listening to a raliroading That GM of the worst sort. One that punishes players for not taking very specific actions they had no idea they had to take, then insisting everything was solely the players' fault.I don't even know what to vote for, in my experience this kind of people is completely unreasonable.Wait no, I know.>If what you want is restoring the balance, why won't you actually do it? How is breaking my relationship going to help with that?
>>2893519He kinda is railroading because it's the same underlying problem as Princess Guard Quest: this is his VN game adapted to a quest format, so whenever we say or do shit that would solve the problem too quick he forces the issue. Difference being it's slightly easier to stomach since the whole thing is meta.
>>2893414>I won't let that happen
>>2893414>>2893457this. Get bent ye dumb THOT
>>2893519He used to be worse with actively sabotaging write ins until we made him stop.
>>2893532Railroading in itself isn't the problem. "You didn't let Rinko walk into an obvious trap, which let to Eiji being beaten (which you couldn't predict), and for that you have to be punished" is the problem.Also I hope you're wrong in your implication that it's BSG who's railroading us and not the in-quest Iwata, because it's him who gave us the option to make this decision in the first place.
>>2893573Probably QM railroading, he has a pattern of it before hand making our character not act like we set him out to in an effort to force the story along his path.
>>2893414"That doesn't make ANY sense. I didn't MAKE Mariko do anything, I asked. She agreed. I didn't force Rei to do anything either. I suggested, she agreed. Showing up in the Research Club was a decision I made, and Rinko lashing out was a decision SHE made- and decided to stop. Eiji getting beaten up was bad, of course, but we discussed the situation and it won't happen again.""You're not factoring in that those are decisions made because of your existence.""What? You think I could help that? Me existing was out of my control. But what I do have control over, I try to achieve [Happiness] with.""It sounds like you don't want anyone to actually WORK for their happiness. I was a NEET, yeah, but even I know that the reason my life sucked was because I didn't TRY. I don't want to make that mistake again- and I don't want these kids to make that mistake at all. That's all I'm trying to do. Do I think my existence has been noble? I can only trust that I've been doing the right thing for these kids in the long run so far.""True Happiness takes effort. It's not instant. It's about recognizing your faults and living your best life trying to fix those faults, not getting everything you wanted on a silver platter without learning anything. And if that's all you're after? Instant Happiness?""I'm not," she says frowning. "And I resent that you feel that way about me. I want [Happiness] for them, for you even."She sighs and shrugs her shoulders. "But it's obvious you still think none of this is your fault. You claim that what you're doing is for the cause, but you still look out for your own self-interests. You claim to be working for the [Happiness] of them all...yet here you are, with a girlfriend, a club, and, wow, even a newfound brotherhood! Your own selfish desires are what caused all this mess.""So, what? You want me to live like a monk? Live solely for the purpose of his and their [Happiness]?""Indeed. That's conviction. I live for the sole purpose of achieving that. Why shouldn't I expect the same from you? Your cowardly brother couldn't take it, so he ran away...I guess it runs in the blood?""You...""You said it yourself. [Happiness] is not instant. It's not handed on a silver platter. Yet you do not commit fully. Instead aiming to balance it all out. You can't. You didn't do it in the past life, what makes you think you could do it now?"She leans in, until your foreheads touch."I will not let my purpose be compromised by half-hearted idiots like you. So show me, Yamada Ken-kun. Show me conviction.""Break up with Hanazawa Mayumi yourself, or I will.">My way is right. I refuse.>Your way is right. I'll break up.>Write in
>>2893595>Wait a minute, what's that about my brother? Doesn't he work for you lot? From how he lorded it over me, I certainly didn't get an impression that he was running away.
>>2893595>"I am here to achieve happiness for everyone. If you haven't fixed this shitshow already in spite of me being here, then you are obviously doing something wrong. Go bother my brother if you got a problem, because if you think bitching at me for breaking rules I was never explained to begin with is going to get my help, you're wrong. You want make my life miserable because you suck, that's your prerogative, you keep Hanazawa out of your shitfit."
>>2893595>My way is right. I refuse.>This is my conviction.
>>2893595Backing >>2893608, with less swearing, and adding >>2893638
>>2893595Backing >>2893608 and adding >>2893638 too
>>2893643Fuck her. We need the swearing. We're a teenager, aren't we?
>>2893685Honestly, as long as we RAGEAGAINST THE HEAVENS
WE SHALL BE THE BEAST IN BLACK!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdlAZj5iDc8
Real talk, this bitch is a few lawfag comments away from "your very existence is a problem enough, so you need to go kill yourself my man" Viper style, and avoid bothering with breaking up Hanazawa and us.
>>2893595"I am here to achieve [Happiness] for everyone. If you still haven't fixed this mess in spite of my existence, then you're obviously doing something wrong. Go bother my brother if you got a problem, because if you think bitching at me for breaking rules I was never explained to begin with is going to get my help, you're wrong. If you want to make my life miserable because you suck, that's your prerogative. But you keep Hanazawa out of this."You stand up, and shake your head with arms crossed. "I refuse to break up with Hanazawa. That is my conviction."Iwata sighs, dusts off her knees, and stands up as well."At the rate you're going, Yamada Ken-kun, I don't need to do a thing.""...""I'm not here to clean up your mess. I'm here to achieve the [Happiness] of the [Main Characters]. And I won't let anyone get in my way." She grins. "I still wish we'll get along in the meantime, though!"She jogs over to the door off the rooftop. "And by the way, keep away from that brother of yours, okay?""...Why should I? Aren't you both scheming together?""Haha! You seem to be under the wrong impression, Yamada Ken-kun."She looks back at you one last time before disappearing to the other side of the door."I hate that son of a bitch.">cont'd
The one fucking thing we have in common.We need to go tell Hanazawa. And we need to figure out how to retaliate. We can't sit on the back foot for this, and we don't NEED to. We HAVE a proper target now, not just a nebulous faceless mass.
>>2893734After that, the class ends with not much happening.Iwata Riho now seats next to Nakamura Eiji, taking up Tokomichi Endou's place. She's been flirting with him all day long, much to the dismay of the class rep. (Tezuka Rei, as always, has been too "asleep" to take notice).You're finishing up in fixing your things, when you notice the whole classroom goes quiet. A shadow looms over you.You look up to see..."Hanazawa."You being a couple is now public knowledge. You don't know if the bullying will extend unto her...Not to mention, you remember Iwata's intent..."Yamada-kun, would you like to go home together?">Of course>Not today, sorry
>>2893777>>Of course. We can talk later, too.
>>2893763I half agree. We definitely should tell Hanazawa, because the main weapon of breaking up couples is misunderstanding. But I don't think retaliating before anything happened is productive.>>2893777>Of course>Tell her about Iwata's intent to break us up. Don't tell anything about Meta though; as far as we know, Iwata is just crazy.
>>2893790I worded that badly. It's more meant to be >Wanted to talk with you, anyway.
>>2893777>Of courseNot gonna leave our girl hanging if the cat is out of the bag.>>2893793this too.
>>2893793Actually, we could also plant some seeds, at the very least>Speculate to her that Iwata's craziness is probably why she's trying to move in on Eiji, too.We'll just let that info percolate as it will.
>>2893814What I meant was that we shouldn't get in Iwata's way as long as she doesn't get in ours, to not provoke her. If she thinks she needs to attack us because we're ruining her work, the worst thing we could do is confirm it.
>>2893842She's basically already SAID she's going to get in our way, though. Her idea of Happiness and ours are in opposition, so she's going to try to damage our reputation, as well as our relationship with Hanazawa. So we need to go ahead and be ready to combat that.
>>2893777"Of course. I wanted to talk to you, anyway."She nods, and you quickly pack up all your things.Before you leave, you glance at direction of Nakamura's seat.Iwata Riho is missing.----"The weather is nice, huh?"It was only when you crossed the gate of the school that Hanazawa started to talk."Er, yeah. It'll be summer soon."You reply, but once again, Hanazawa goes silent. Did she really just want to walk home together?She's been avoiding you recently too. Aside from your encounter at the grocery, you haven't really been able to spend time with her. Should you bring that up?Not to mention, the Iwata issue...is that something you should talk to her about?You decide to-->Talk about her avoiding you recently>Talk about Iwata Riho>Wait for her to talk>Write in
>>2893854Be ready to combat that, yes, attack first, no.Do you think we can defeat the powers of this world? Who can control the very fabric of local reality?Our goal should be to convince them that fighting is unnecessary.
>>2893859>Ask what's bugging herSomething clearly does, and talking about ourselves would be a bad move in this situation.
Thinking about it, Yamada DOES have conviction. Since the very start, he has been adamant about his way. Even when the collective went against him, he resolved to continue his way. Even when Nakahara beat the shit out of him, he continued. When Nakahara begged for someone, anyone, to side with her - he continued.Yamada does not stray from his path, under threat or coercion. He stays to what he believes is the correct path.True happiness cannot exclude anyone. Not the devil, nor the angel, nor the damned.
>>2893859Seconding >>2893862>>Talk about Iwata RihoWondering if this might be what was meant by 'She won't have to do anything.'
>>2893859Backing >>2893862 and >>2893894
>>2893859>Ask what's bugging her
>>2893859"Is something bugging you, Hanazawa?""...""Hanazawa?""Ask again in ten seconds, Ken-kun.""Eh?"But you obey her commands. In your mind you countdown from ten...And upon reaching one, you find yourself at the base of the hill."Hana--""Ken-kun." Before you could finish your question, Hanazawa interrupts."...What is it?""Would...you like to come over to my house?"Hanazawa blushes from ear to ear."My parents aren't home."(TO BE CONTINUED)
>>2893939SOMETHING BAD IS GOING TO HAPPEN
>>2893939If that pastebin is canon, we already banged, so that's a concern if she's being so cagey about it.
>>2893939This is a perfect time to gift her the bracelet guys!But the big question is: before or after we fuck out brains out for real this time? Because according to the pastebin, the first time was only one round then cuddling in the bath.>>2893966Pastebin is canon.Also remember people:Iwata Riho is the [Angel]Our little bro is the [Devil]Iwata Riho is a condescending cunt who wants to stop us from 'ruining the world' and implied that she wanted us to kill ourselves because our very existence is a problem to everybody (i.e. herself) getting [True End]. Completely ignorant that fucking with us WILL cause us to go full mutually-assured destruction on the world and bring about [Erasure].Our little bro is a smug edgelord who keeps hiding shit from us and being annoyingly vague, but he's sympathetic to a degree due to his problem and role as the [Meta] character being a lonely existence of some suffering. He is very much aware we have the power to go full insane and cause [Erasure] of the world, and wants us to include him in getting [Happiness] on the way to [True End].I think we'll need to give our bro a call sometime soon. Pic very much related.
>>2894044Gimme a quick rundown?
>>2894094Not yet. Not the time yet.
Quick Q, you guys, are we going full M.A.D if they break us and Hanazawa up?Because I'd be fully ok with that,Hanazawa doesn't deserve this anime's shit.
Memes aside, I'll take another crack at analysis.I don't think our brother is the true [devil]. The biblical Devil was one of god's own angels, but struck with Hubris. This angel believed that they knew better than God, and lacked faith in his creation - humans.We know an [angel]. An angel which seeks to remove agency from [god] by manipulating events to have him choose her over the rest of the harem. This clearly shows that she believes that her judgement on the matter is superior to the conclusion that [god] would have naturally arrived at. What other trait does she possess? A [lack of faith]. In us, brought here by divine will to help [god]. In us, who IS god's friend.My prediction is that [god] will reject the [angel], and she will grow fierce from it. She will retaliate, and in the end she will be rejected from his circle - what might be called [heaven], in a sense. The [devil] is the ultimate sinner, being punished for their wicked deeds. Not a judge, as our brother seems to be.The only question is, does the [true ending] require that we prevent the fall of the [devil]? Or will that event be fated to happen?
>>2894158I think of the opposite. We decided to achieve the [True End], [Happiness] for everyone, included her.As we did with our "sister", we will receive her hatred and retaliate with love. Our path is the correct one.
>>2894191I don't disagree with this in premise. My first take of Riho's scheme was that her scope is too narrow. She wants to resolve the Harem for the MC, but that doesn't address the happiness of anyone but Eiji himself (theoretically).She thinks we're half-assing it because we're not putting everything into resolving the situation. We think she's half-assing it because she's just taking the most convenient answer that resolves the equation ... there's no way that's a [True End].Of course, if she were only shacking up with God because it gives her a possibility of surviving the end of this world, that would be a different thing entirely...Just this second though, I'm more worried about the possibility of Hanazawa trying to wallpaper over relationship securities with physical intimacy though. Give her the present first, we should show that we've been thinking about her, not just playing around with the Sukeban.
Run in an hour or two
>>2894258Actually, I can back this. We should give her the present ASAP.
>>2896326Followed by a kiss with lots of tongue, and then :^)
>>2893939You follow Hanazawa to the direction of her home.Again, she remains silent throughout the journey.At the front of the door, she stumbles opening the door with her keys.It's kind of uncharacteristic of her to act this nervous. Is something the matter...?Hanazawa finally gets the door open, and she hurriedly enters. You follow suit."Sorry for the intrusion..."You go and take off your shoes, only to notice Hanazawa's standing in front of you. You straighten up, and thanks to her being a step higher, you meet each other eye to eye."Ken-kun..."Her face is flushed. Her breathing is rapid.And she closes her eyes.Waiting.>Kiss her>Interrupt her>Write in
My idea right now is>Pull out the bracelet, take her hand, and put it on her>"I got it just for you.">THEN pull her close and kiss her.but could this be a trap guys?>she stumbles opening the door with her keys>It's kind of uncharacteristic of her to act this nervous. Is something the matter...?is someone forcing her to do this?
>>2896546this>>2896565>>Pull out the bracelet, take her hand, and put it on her>"I got it just for you.">THEN pull her close and kiss her.part specifically
>>2896546Alright then >>2896565 is my vote
>BSG gone for three hours>left quest right before the imminent lewdGuys what's going on?
>>2897218>BSG gone for five hoursIs he okay?
Well my computer's officially fucked.Give me a few minutes so I can run in mobile.
>>2897739RIP in peace BSG's computer.
>>2897739What happened? How bad?
>>2897771It's a 4 year old laptop with boot loop problems.It usually just takes discharging the battery, but there were blue screens since a while ago so I backupped all I can in safe mode.I'll probably buy a new battery later.
>>2897790Hope you don't lose anything important.
>>2897790guys im scared....is this the last day we can enjoy ourselves? i don't want this day to end i mean i want a comfy life with Hanazawa. We gonna have 3 kids and live in this rural city far away from those pesky harem girls and Eiji.
>>2897790And to think I was expecting you to have been working on one of the best lewdbins in this entire quest. I suppose there's plenty more to go in this quest
>>2896546Your hand goes to the front pocket of your bag. There you feel the silver bracelet, hidden inside a pouch bag. You reach in, take her hand... And slip it on her wrist. Hanazawa, it seems, wasn't expecting what you did. Her eyes fly open, probably in part to the temperature of the band. "Eh? Wha--" You cut off her words with a kiss. She lingers as you pull away, but in the end she stays put, breathing shallow. "... Ken-kun..." She looks up your gift in the light, tracing her fingers on the Sakura ornaments. "Is there an occasion?" >Monthsary>Birthday>No occasion>I thought there was based on your actions>Write in
>>2897899>Look straight in her eyes and smile genuinely from deep inside ourselves.>"Because I love you with all my heart, and seeing you smile makes every day feel worth living."
>>2897899>If 'missing spending time with you' counts as an occasion, yes.
>>2897899>>Write in"Only occasion I need is that "I love you."
>>2897927Fuck this is also a good write-inI have no clue what to back if at allTough choices
>>2897899"Does there need to be an occasion?" You give the most genuine smile you can muster. "I miss you. I love you. Does there need to be any other reason?" Hanazawa looks up from the band and gazes at you. You try to break the ice with a more goofy smile. Hanazawa steps closer and hooks her arms under you. "... You're so cheesy, Ken-kun. You have the words of an old geezer. "" H-Haha... You dislike it?" "..." "... Hanazawa?" She stays in your chest, silent. "Hanazawa?" "... I'm sorry..." >For what? >I forgive you>Write in
>>2898005>I forgive you>But for what?
>>2898005>>2898016this is good
>>2898005For the record, figured this would happen. It's either a trap or she's breaking up with us or NTR or something, I dunno.
>>2898005GUYS IM SCARED AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>2898040If NTR, I will not stop suggesting and selecting PUNISHED mode options from now on.It's probably a trap with the "We're breaking up" kind of thing, which is way more manageable.For me at leastI hate NTR, Cuck shit, and cheating. Hate. Hate.
>>2898063Anon if BSG going to make NTR holy shit my fucking boner you fucking pressed my fucking fetish you beautiful bastards. KILL ALL KEKS. I'm gonna hunt the guy even if it's Eiji and will establish who is Alpha the world will be damned.
>>2898082NTR is trash
...Y'know, it's kinda funny how we keep going on about bringing people happiness but as soon as our own is threatened we say we're gonna burn it all down. Not that I'm disputing it, it's just curious to note and I'm unsure if it's hypocritical of us or what.
>>2898005"I forgive you," you answer quickly, "But for what?"She giggles. "Idiot. If you don't even know, why are you forgiving me already?"You shrug."...I'm sorry for making you miss me this much. There's a good reason for it..." she says. "Though... I wonder if I ignored you more, will I get a gold band instead?""Please don't."Hanazawa laughs. "This is an unfair sneak attack, Ken-kun." Her voice goes lower, her eye lashes fluttering. "Now you're stirring me all up."Her breath stops. Hanazawa looks up at you, and you could swear you see twinkling in her beautiful irises.If you go now, nothing will stop you.And she won't.>Go>Wait
>>2898134>>Go>>write-inPick up condoms
>>2898134>GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOIs this even a choice? Fuck the consequences because this is Hanazawa and Ken time.
>>2898134Well, now I'm curious. What's the reason?>Go
>>2898134>Go>Hold her in our arms and carry her to the bedCondoms: OPTIONAL
>>2898148I hate that these make me laugh.
>>2898168Simple. Effective. Conveys emotion properly. As reaction images should be.
>>2898134You start to lean in closer to her... The door opens from behind, and out comes Yukio, eating a piece of toast. "Ah, nee-san. Your home." He notices your presence and his face sours. "Geh." >cont'd The lewds were in the laptop
>>2898134I swear to god BSG if someone cockblock us namely Iwatai'm going to rape this bitch and make her our slave.Or i swear to god if that fucking dipshit of brother going to cockblock us im gonna beat him up courtesy of Oyabun
>>2898223OI YOU FUCK IM GONNA BEAT YUKIO FOR THIS AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
I'm not going to lie, I'm incredibly amused. Should've seen it coming, but amused nonetheless.
>>2898223>The lewds were in the laptopAnd you didn't back them up, probably. Damn.As long as we get them when the time is right canonically, then it's all good. Getting the lewdbin now when we don't have it actually happening in-story or after the fact, is shit. Better to do it like you did last time:>leadup to lewd scene>fade to black>aftermath>quest goes on as normal>canon lewdbin posted after the factwhereas right now we have>leadup to lewd scene>cockblock by shitty brotherso the lewd stuff that would have happened normally can still happen some other time - meaning posting the lewdbin is a shitty move while we're at this sort of limbo state
>>2898223"Yukio!" Hanazawa turns around. From her tone, it's clear she wasn't expecting anyone neither. "What are you doing here?" "They canceled club.""Liar. I saw the basketball team jogging just a while ago." "Well," he shrugs as if caught, despite not hiding it at all. "With mom and dad out I thought this little prick would make a move." "*I* invited him over.""You really shouldn't. He's a wolf in sheep's clothing, a wolf.""You're being rude to Ken-kun.""Nah, he's a big guy. He can take it." Yukio continues munching on his bread. "Not with your red-haired friend? My sister on your calendar today?" >Stay silent>She's my brother>Write in
>>2898263>"Yeah, it's high time I spent some time with my girlfriend and not my sworn sister. She can handle herself."Don't give him the satisfaction of getting our goat.
>>2898263Backing >>2898270 but would>"Guess I can't say the same about you, since you clearly can't handle me being around."also be good? If not I'll stick to just backing the post.
>>2898263I'm having such a hard time not responding to him with a banepost right now.
>>2898263>>2898270>>"Yeah, it's high time I spent some time with my girlfriend and not my sworn sister. She can handle herself."This is good."Are you on the team for basketball?"At least make an effort to play nice. Ultimately, he's hanazawa's family and i'd rather not put her into a spot.
>>2898276You can't, he messed it up.>"Nah, he's a big guy. He can take it." >Yukio continues munching on his bread. "Not with your red-haired friend? My sister on your calendar today?" If it was only "something something big guy" with a chance to interrupt him or he didn't say anything extra, then the banepost would be a tactical choice
>>2898288Agreed.>>2898270Reiterating that the idea is to say this entirely casually, NOT snidely.
>>2898263Also backing >>2898288
>>2898293"They expected one of us in the wreckage." might work, because the girl he's talking about was our 'brother'.
>>2898243my dick was fucking ready for this vanilla seriously why does all younger brother the most shittiest of them all.
>>2898303Still a bad attempt. Our time will come though, eventually...
>>2898318If we ever go full 'fuck this', we could at least say that we're going to crash this world with no survivors
>>2898334NoMore like pic related
>>2898352Still hate how that arc ended. In the manga especially.
>>2898358So a combination of "crashing this plane with no survivors" + Zamasu-style Zero Harem Plan + [Punished] "Venom" Yamada?I like that, but I think we're far from the "fuck everything" option. Far far from it. I feel we're still early game in this salvaged VN of BSG's and as long as he gets more flexible and less hard railroady with our plans, we should be sailing okay instead of sinking.
>>2898263"Yeah, it's high time I spent some time with my girlfriend." You saying that clearly irked Yukio. "My sworn sister can handle herself." "Wow, so you finally showed your true colors and became a blight to society huh. Nee-san, leave this guy before he extorts a kid to death or something." "Yukio..." Hanazawa looks uncomfortable, so you try to change the subject. "So, you're in the basketball club?" "What, 1v1 me? When you lose, leave my sister alone. And when I win, leave my sist--gak!" You didn't notice that Hanazawa has grabbed the morning paper by the doorway. She had to jump to reach, but he smacks him over the forehead with a makeshift paper fan. "N-Nee-san, that hurt..." "I've just had about enough of you and your disrespect! Ken-kun is your senpai and my boyfriend. Don't you dare think that you could decide who I date with a basketball game!" "It was hyperbol--ow!" "Shut up!" Yukio rubs her head while Hanazawa smacks the paper fan in her hand like a drill Sargeant with a whip. "You go to your room, and if I go there and catch you not studying, there won't be any dinner for you, got that?!" Yukio turns around to give you a death glare, but Hanazawa cocks back the fan again. "I'll be listening in to see if you do anything to my sister!" "No you won't!" "Yes I wil--owow, I'm going I'm going!" He jogs up the stairs, but before turning the corner, he shouts down the stairs. "If I catch you doing anything, you won't even have time to hide behind your violent friend!" Yukio disappears, and with that, Hanazawa sighs."That kid, honestly..." >Was he always like this? >It seems Fumi left a mark on him>What do we do now? >Write in
>>2898377>>It seems Fumi left a mark on him
>>2898377>It's fine. Was he always like this?>I mean, I can respect looking out for your siblings, but...
>>2898377>It seems Fumi left a mark on him>I could totally imagine them as a couple, what do you think?also backing >>2898391
>>2894191Wait so by that logicIf the [angel] is LuciferAnd our brother the [devil] is really the judgeAnd Eiji is [God]Is MC potentially either the [Messiah] or the [Endbringer] depending entirely on player choices? Either we successfully bring about true end and make everyone happy or bring about erasure.
>>2898401>And our brother the [devil] is really the judgeRemember that Satan is actually the judge on the side of Law and not Chaos. Shin Megami Tensei is great for teaching that.
>>2898407Satan and Lucifer are the same being, conceptually, aren't they?I mean the word Satan is based off of Shaitan, which is the type of Djinni that Iblis is in islamic mythos, and Iblis more or less has the same story that Lucifer of christian mythos has. (He got angry that god made a new creation because he thought it meant that Djinni weren't good enough for him, and got punished by god to become a shadow which whispers temptations to men as a result, etc etc)So SMT aside, I would think that lucifer and satan are one and the same.
>>2898407True he's not the chaotic rebel everyone makes him out to be in modern media. More like he's the ultimate rule lawyer trying to tempt humanity so that he can prove how much they actually suck to God when the end times happen. Doesn't make him any less of a evil, petty dick.
>>2898377"It's fine," you say. "But was he always like this?" "Not at all," Hanazawa says with a sigh. "He used to be such a cute kid when he was younger. I think it's just growing pains."She folds open again the newspaper and puts it away. "Although, even when he was young he already had a mean streak..." "Huh. Kind of reminds me of Fumi."Upon the mention of her name, Hanazawa glances up the stairs, before tip toeing in to whisper."Actually...Yukio's been curious about her recently. Like asking my relation to her, or how she knows you..." "Ehh? Could this be...?"Hanazawa smiles a grin only a proud older sister can have. "I think he's starting to enter the spring of his youth." >I'll introduce him to Fumi>He doesn't deserve oyabun>Write in
>>2898495>I'll introduce him to Fumi
>>2898495>I'll introduce him to FumiBut what are we gonna do with Hanazawa now? We got cockblocked once already, what else can we do?
>>2898495>>I'll introduce him to FumiBUT I'll probably have to talk with him abit first. Vet him for my oyabun. Not for some sort of petty revenge. Nope.
>>2898502Maybe but also>inb4 Hanazawa shows us /g/ and starts gushing about tech stuff
>>2898495>I'll introduce him to FumiWell we are trying to give happiness to everyone....
>>2898495Ugh. That'd be a match made in hell.
>>2898519We're already in hell. This is perfect for them.>inb4 we go full double date>this leads to Yukio and Fumi in one room, Hanazawa and Ken in anotherThis way he won't be able to complain about us if he's getting some too. It's GENIUS
>>2898526And fumi might even be super chaste and smacks him around.
>>2898495"I'll introduce him to Fumi." "Eh? You'd do that, Ken-kun?" "Why not? How she reacts is a bit out of my control though."Hanazawa smiles. Is she imagining how things will go with her and Yukio right now? "Thank you. Even if you don't have to...""Hey. He's your sibling. I want to help him to, if I can." She sighs."I just wish... He'd support you and me, Ken-kun. I hate how he's being like this. " "He will. Maybe not now, but... In time." She nods. Hanazawa grabs your hand and pulls you towards the stairs. "Come with me." >cont'd
>>2898529Ah poor Yukio...subjected to torture which is Fumi Nakahara. God speed you magnificent bastard.
>>2898526Well, I didn't vote against it.Youth is about making mistakes, after all.
>>2898551Hanazawa's room is similar to yours in many aspects. The furnishings are bare, even the walls are a plain, forgettable yellow paint. Is this an effect of her being a [Mob]? The only differences is that her bookshelf is way more stacked with Manga than yours. And of course, the bright flashing dual-screen computer in the middle of it all, complete with a keyboard that flashes and a black-red racing chair. You sit down on the table on the middle while Hanazawa goes through her wardrobe. "Just wait for a moment here, Ken-kun. I'm going to fetch some drinks." She closes the door, and you hear the patter of steps going down to the first floor. While waiting, you-->Check the computer>Check under the bed>Check behind the bookshelves>Write in
>>2898568>Check the BookshelvesAs a reincarnated NEET, it is our duty to ensure our girlfriend does not have Trash Taste.Snooping is bad form.
>>2898568>>Check behind the bookshelvesLook behind for the yaoi stashes. Read them while waiting for her.
>>2898568>Wait for her and don't snoop around, like a good boyfriend would.
>>2898568>>Check behind the bookshelvesRead the yaoi stash she has like a good boyfriend would.
>>2898568>Check behind the bookshelves>>2898621This man gets it
>>2898568The bookshelves from the front seem to be filled with your standard Mangas, even though a girl reading this much Shonen is kind of bizarre.But the interesting things are definitely in the back of the shelf. You sneak over, double checking if Hanazawa has returned, and peek at the back of the bookshelf. "... Damn it, it's too dark..." You push the shelf for a bit, letting more of the light to get in. You see eyes. Small, beady black eyes, like a rat's, in deformed hairy bodies. Broken needles stick out of their skin, and dismembered parts of feet, ears and tail lay astrew. "Wha--" You back away, and hit something. Hanazawa's leg."Hanazawa...!"She's standing there, holding a tray of beverages. You didn't even hear her come in. "You saw... Didn't you...?"She says in an emotionless voice. With sunken cheeks and irises of black.(TO BE CONTINUED)
>>2898678Clearly we accidentally found her handmade stuffed dolls she made but is too embarrased to show anyone because she's really bad at it and made what was supposed to be a cute mouse into a creepy looking rat thing. T-that's clearly what that was right, r-right?
>>2898688It's fine anon. BSG just loves his cliff hangers. It's probably nothing. Probably.
>>2898678God damn it BSG this is why your quest is so fucking good. You are good at making cliffhangers. This is what a good anime season should be. One thing it is an anime romcom suddenly it became a horror suspense. Holy shit i don't want to end this wild ride.10/10 Anime of the yeari wonder what happened on meatspace right now considering we are not on the camera anymore or did Iwata Riho changed/add a script on Hanazawa that made her creepy like this?
>>2898678She's making dolls isn't she
>>2898678What the fuuuuuuckIs Hana-chan the resident yandere?
>>2898701I'm scared anon....i really am.
>>2898377What a siscon, but I can respect that
>>2898821That's my bet. The broken needles sell it for me.Still, BSG is a champ for pushing through on mobile after technical difficulties.
>>2898834Nah she was just making a doll or practicing needle work for something.Even if she was she is our waifu love conquers every thing.
>>2898678Reminds me of mirai nikki
Well, the comp's still a big piece of deep fried potato so I might be bringing it to the repair shop nowAaaaand an artist just bailed out of a web comic project after I made a 24 chapter project proposal for himHope y'alls day are doing better. That run is looking doubtful for now.
>>2901512Hope things get better for you.
>inb4 we never were the [Dammed] and the one responsible for us to be [Awaken] was Hanazawa. Which fucked up with the setting
>>2901512Just hang in there and keep us posted.>>2901534Big if true!
>>2901512Take your time :)
>>2901552Nah it's just a theory.
Just wondering, why won't the Collective hurt Iwata? Isn't she messing stuff up even more blatantly than we were?Also, the girl who helped us pick out the sakura band and our running buddy should totally be our ins at St. Agace.
>>2902764As a girl and a main, shes included in the harem so by default shes sacrosanct.
is BSG kill?
Rolled 23 (1d100)>>2908813Does BSG revive on a nat 1 or a 100?
Rolled 29 (1d100)>>2908888Your quads gave us the question but not the anwser. So we must roll and see what will bring him back
>>2908888Q U A D SUADS
Rolled 35 (1d100)>>2908888

>>2920426>later happens>no runBISUGOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
