Every story has an ending. Boy finds girl of his dreams, boy gets together with girl. Boy finds multiple girls of his dreams, Boy... blah blah blah. Who the fuck cares? You're clocking out. At this point, you're one hundred percent sure nobody even takes a look over the opening. You bet they just skip it or something. You're done with this stupid fucking anime. They're going to need someone else to replace you, because you're not going to put up with this shit anymore.
It's a beautiful sunny day today. You hate it. You don't even get the privilege of mood-setting rain. You wake up early to make your lunch. Your mom is busy sleeping in after a long day of work yesterday. Your lunch is the usual – rice with egg and soy sauce. With your lunch packed, you head off to school. Other than the occasional titter of passing students, the day is quiet. You put on your earphones and listen to some music. Looking up to the sky, you tune out and drum your fingers to the beat. Not long after, you bump into someone. You pay them a quick, “Sorry,” before continuing your walk to school. You pass by Hiro's house undisturbed – you don't bother to wait. Swinging your bag over your shoulder, you walk alone to the entrance. You exchange your sneakers with your school shoes and head straight to class. You feel a slight tapping on your desk. Creaking open an eye, you see Shina standing over your desk with a troubled expression. “Satoshi, please, we need to talk.” >”No.”>”No.”>”No.”>”No.”
>>45984980>”No.”Literally one option? Come the fuck on, man.
>>45984980"Do we have to. I don't really wanna deal with this shit."
>>45984967>At this point, you're one hundred percent sure nobody even takes a look over the opening.I-I read the opening c-crawl, Nano-kun...
>>45984980>”No.”No other choice? Not that we would choose anything different, but still.
Sorry, guys! No write-ins for now. I'm sure the choices are varied enough.
>"No."Welp. Choo fucking Choo boys.
>>45984980>>”No.”But put some pizazz into it, make it our own.Like we turn 360 degrees, tip a non-existant hat and then walk away.
>>45984980>All of the above.
>>45984980>"No."THE DIRECTOR IS ASSUMING DIRECT CONTROL.
>>45984994>>45985017>>45985072Im pretty sure its a joke guys.A bad joke,but a joke. I wont have any greater ramifications.it better not have any great ramifications
>All these votes for No.>Not picking No.I guess we are samefagging hard today.
>>45985127>No-fag detectedIt's like you don't understand how great No really is.Do you want us to lose?
>>45985086Sure, I'm in.>All of the above
RIP worst girl, I was wondering how those popularity polls were going to affect the quest
>>45985160>Do you want us to lose?I could ask you the same thing. You have to be blind not seeing that No will lead to drastic ramifications.No on the other hand will lead to the mecha anime. Obviously.
This reeks of Samefag. We need to final destination this one.
Reminder that this will never apply to this quest ever again.
>>45985224Isn't it sad? I was the one who said that.
>”No.” And you're not going to put some fucking 'pizazz' in it. “No.” You shut your eyes and lean your head on your arm. “Satoshi, I–” Shina cuts herself off. “No, we all want to talk to you. So, if you could give us a chance and listen to us...”With a painful sigh, you repeat yourself. “No.” And with that, you ignore Shina until she finally walks away defeated. When class starts, you listen thoughtfully to the English lecture, taking notes on varied sentence structure. It's odd. When you actually force yourself to pay attention, the class doesn't seem so bad. Maybe you were just distracted. As soon as the first bell rings, Patricia immediately sidles up to you and unobtrusively approaches your desk. “Hey.”You take out your chemistry notes, looking over the material that you skimmed over last week. “I'm studying.”“We could study together, maybe? Chemistry isn't after lunch, so I think we can, y'know, talk about it during lunch... and stuff?” You ignore her and look over the next page. You still have a few more to go. “Please say something,” Patricia speaks softly.>Don't say a word.>Don't say a word.>Don't say a word.>”I'd like my English book back.”
>>45985231Put there: 'insert nano'
>>45985260>>Don't say a word.
>>45985260>Don't say a word.Yeah, no, I'm not killing off more characters than necessary to appease the director.
>>45985260>”I'd like my English book back.”Where did it all go wrong?
>Don't say a word.Satoshi knows. He knows of us.
>>45985260>”I'd like my English book back.”
>>45985260>>”I'd like my English book back.”
>>45985260>Don't say a word.
Here we go again.
>>45985260>”I'd like my English book back.”I don't know which choice is better or worse anymore.
>>45985311Clearly asking for the book is worse as it is a means of cutting ties with her.
>>45985260>Don't say a word....I guess, but it was a hard choice between the second and the third.
Rolled 1 (1d3)>>459852601: Don't say a word.2: Don't say a word.3: Don't say a word.Let the dice gods decide.
>>45985332But does it thought? I'd feel worse if i just got ignored after confessing to someone, the book offers her a chance to actually respond and start a dialogue.
>>45985260>Don't say a word.No regretsOnly joy
>>45985402Asking for the book back means we wants absolutely nothing to do with her, cause he doesn't need the book for English. That hurts more than some cold shoulder.
>>45985402it basically means we want to tie up loose ends with her. Its really bad.
>>45985402We're angry, and hurt, I feel giving everyone the cold shoulder is better than going around cutting ties in hope that the dialogue will lead anywhere productive.Right now we need to play the game, otherwise the director may make things even worse than they already are. He may start cutting loose slack holding the "story" back.
>>45985430>>45985440Can't she just refuse returning the book unless we actually talk to her (or maybe Hiro, or anyone) first?
>>45985459Trust me she won't. Girl's heart is unstable right now.
>>45985402A dialogue which the MC will, apparently, gleefully ignore in his current mood of fuck everything.At least this way she can choose to give him the book back of her own accord. Likely by tossing it at his head in a fit of anger.
>>45985487Fucking teenagers. I suppose i change my vote then if it's possible.
>>45985459More like she'll probably throw the thing in Sat's face and run off crying, leaving the classroom to stare in Satoshi's direction and him looking back.
Rereading the 'You have to choose!' scene.Just realized that Nina stayed the fuck away from that. It would have been nice if she told them to fucking cool it, but at least she isn't part of the insensitive 'choose me!' trio.
>>45985572Nina knows and she understands the situation Satisfied is in.Yori didnt either but that because shes terrified she'll lose.
>>45985597>SatisfiedDid you get autocorrect'd?
>Don't say a word. Even though you-You continue looking over your notes, paying Patricia no mind. You look over line after line. Idly spinning your pencil in your hand, you focus all your attention onto the stupid piece of paper in front of you. Patricia, whimpering softly, returns to her seat, holding a hand up to her eyes. She sullenly hunches over, staring emptily at her English notes. You wait until break is over, heading straight to the lockers to change for gym class. The teacher assigns a pair activity – Yuko comes running over with an uneasy smile. “Uh, hiya, Satoshi.” Yuko feigns laughter. “Since we gotta do this pair thing, let's just pair up and stuff. No need to talk or anything!” You turn away from her.>Leave for the infirmary.>Leave for the infirmary.>Kinda sad, isn't it? Leave for the infirmary.>”I'm going to ask the teacher to assign me someone else.”
>>45985612autocucked, it's called being autocucked now.This is the future you cheese anon
>>45985671>Kinda sad, isn't it? Leave for the infirmary.[Shadowruns Intensifies]
>>45985671>>Kinda sad, isn't it? Leave for the infirmary.Oh boy.
>>45985671>Kinda sad, isn't it? Leave for the infirmary.
>>45985671>Leave for the infirmary. >She sullenly hunches over, staring emptily at her English notes.This seems far more menacing to me than it probably is. But I can't help but worry
>>45985671>Leave for the infirmary.
>Kinda sad, isn't it? Leave for the infirmary.This is rough.
>>45985671>>Kinda sad, isn't it? Leave for the infirmary.How does it feel Satoshi? That you got played like a goddamn fiddle by a bunch of people on an imageboard and the director Nano.
>>45985671>Kinda sad, isn't it? Leave for the infirmary....Fuck. This leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
>>45985671>>Kinda sad, isn't it? Leave for the infirmary.I don't like these feels.I don't like these feels at all.But it feels so right.
Shadowrun Time! We didn't chose any of them so they aren't worthy of being part of the harem anymore so they are being removed by the director. Turned into side characters, losing their individuality, this is them coming to us, begging to not be "killed off", "Put on the bus", removed from the spotlight. And we have no one to blame but ourselves.
>>45985869Oh yeah? What's the next step in his master plan? Bringing in a brand new cast?
>>45985880No.Bring in Code Named: Nano
>>45985880Killing everyone off and turning it into a post-apocalyptic mecha series.
>>45985880Either that or Genre shifting into a romcom between the only two girls who didn't try too push for an ending.
>>45985869We can blame the Director. As well as the otakus that watch our show.
>>45985671>>Kinda sad, isn't it? Leave for the infirmary.
>>45985880CRASHING THIS SHOWWITH NO SURVIVORS
My guess on the end of the episode?We're going to tell off Yori, she'll run away and in our anger, we'll cross the road and get hit by a truck we didn't see.>>45985920I'm pretty sure we're going to tell them off as well.
>>45985966>I'm pretty sure we're going to tell them off as well.I could honestly see Nina in a bomb shelter right now, staying away from ground zero Satoshi until he cools off.
>>45986037Main girl is a smart girl.She might do that or just hang around till we can't take it anymore and start talking.
>Kinda sad, isn't it? Leave for the infirmary. You've got a bad taste in your mouth. Wordlessly, you leave for the infirmary. You take the long way around school before finally settling down in the empty nurse's room, throwing yourself on the bed. You breathe out in frustration, resting your head on the pillow. You stay for another thirty minutes before hopping off the bed. You're not going to miss the next class. Though the nurse isn't here, the records are strewn over the table. You write your time of entry and exit with “Not feeling well” as the reason for coming. On the way, you see Patricia and Shina holding the handouts for next class. Though you can't hear what they are saying, you know that they are somber and cheerless.>It's none of your business. >It's none of your business. >God dammit, it's none of your business. >Why do you even care that it's none of your business?
>>45986101>>It's none of your business.
>>45986101>It's none of your business.
>>45986101>God dammit, it's none of your business.And>Why do you even care that it's none of your business?
>>45986101>>It's none of your business.I want off this ride.
>>45986101>>Why do you even care that it's none of your business?
>>45986101>Why do you even care that it's none of your business?
C-Can we go back to waifuing again? Pretty please?
>>45986101>Why do you even care that it's none of your business?When will the pain end? My heart can't take much more.
>>45986235No waifuing for YOU! COME BACK ONE YEAR!
I-I feel as though I missed something major. What happened guys?
>>45986315Read thread 5 and 5.5.
>>45986315We fucked up, that's what happened.Or, Nano fucked us when we least expected it.
>>45986315Suffering and Shadowruns being correct.
>Why do you even care that it's none of your business?
>Why do you even care that it's none of your business?You shouldn't care. It's none of your business. You know what you're getting yourself into if you don't mind your own damn business. But still, you have to keep yourself from doing anything stupid. You wait until they get into class before walking through the hallway. With a heavy heart, you keep your head down until you reach your desk. Your face is a little numb. Is it because you've been stuck in a frown all this time? You rub your cheeks. Een if you wanted to, you couldn't foster a smile here. Your mind drifts to thoughts of Yori. She said that you pretend to be happy. But why does your face hurt so much when you frown? Your eyes sting too. You hurriedly rub them in a panic. Your hand is a little wet. You frown again, but then you stop yourself. You don't know how to feel. You just don't want to feel this way anymore. For now, you'll bury yourself in the lecture and drown away everything else. Your resolve is drained. You have to strain to pay attention to the chemistry teacher. Looks like the notes you went over in break didn't help at all. >Go over the notes again.>GO OVER THE NOTES AGAIN.>Just... go over the notes. You can do it.>You can't fucking concentrate. You can't do it. It's impossible.>Fuck, it's not fair. It's not fair at all.
>>45986561>Just... go over the notes. You can do it.
>>45986561>Go over the notes again.And when that inevitably fails:>GO OVER THE NOTES AGAIN.
>>45986561>Fuck, it's not fair. It's not fair at all.Are these options sequential?
>Go over the notes again.>GO OVER THE NOTES AGAIN.>Fuck, it's not fair. It's not fair at all.
>>45986561>>Fuck, it's not fair. It's not fair at all.
>>45986561>Fuck, it's not fair. It's not fair at all.
>>45986561>You can't fucking concentrate. You can't do it. It's impossible.
>>45986561>>Go over the notes again.I WILL NOT CRACK.
>>45986561>Fuck, it's not fair. It's not fair at all.Life of a protagonist sure does sucks when your aware of it.
>>45986561>Go over the notes again.>GO OVER THE NOTES AGAIN.>Just... go over the notes. You can do it.>You can't fucking concentrate. You can't do it. It's impossible.>Fuck, it's not fair. It's not fair at all.In order!
>>45986561Man if we're railroading, just type up to the part we aren't.But hey as long as we have angst, we have something worth watching. And I don't think we could turn down yori without breaking down. We're probably on okay terms with Nina, considering she's actually concerned about our well being.
>>45986561>>Just... go over the notes. You can do it.
>>45986613Can you hear them, God?
>>45986561We cannot crack at least until the school day is over. Maybe at least we can skip the next class and sulk on the roof?
>>45986561>Fuck, it's not fair. It's not fair at all.Also. I just noticed that Nano never posted an image of a girl yet. I feel like that adds to the pain.
>>45986656God is dead.We are next.
>>45986561>Go over the notes again.>GO OVER THE NOTES AGAIN.>Just... go over the notes. You can do it.>You can't fucking concentrate. You can't do it. It's impossible.>Fuck, it's not fair. It's not fair at all.>Just fuck you Director. And fuck all you sweaty no life otakus that are watching this right now.
>>45986561Nano is the director.We, the anons, are the viewing public.The reason we had to disrupt the then-MC from getting any of the girls was because it would lead to waifu route lock-in, and it would destroy the quest's (show's) fanbase.Now, Satoshi seems bound and determined to crash this plane with no survivors, and as a result, is destroying smiles in the hopes that it will chase the audience away.The director has lost control of the character in some respects, which is why we, the anons, have little input into his actions, compared to before.Also, it's very possible that Satoshi can read the comments of his viewing public. Hopefully, however, he can't read the spoilers.>Just... go over the notes. You can do it....but you can't, can you?>Fuck, it's not fair. It's not fair at all.
Depression: The Quest
>>45986695If we keep it up for more than two episodes, the slow is probably gonna end like that. As a message about the true stars of harem anime.There needs to be a minor resolution or something.Nina needs to talk with us. She essentially is our only brother in arms
Nervous breakdown here we go!
>Satoshi complains that managing a harem and protecting everyones smiles has destroyed his smile>rejects everyone>still no smile for SatoshiIs everyone ready for the big life lesson when we realise we could all have been smiling together the whole time?
>>45986778>implying the entire series hasn't been just one giant nervous breakdown for a middle-aged salaryman.
>>45986810If we had just smiled, laughed, spent time with all of them instead of of trying to manage and control everything. Maybe, just maybe, things could have gone right. Too late now though, unless one of the girls or Hiro manages to talk to us and snap us out of this the show is going to go down in a horrible anti-climax.
>>45986868The message of the day is 'just be yourself'. So we do that, and if the girls can do it too and still love us, we can figure something out like sensible people. Right now we're actually forcing ourself to be miserable as if it's somehow helping.
>Fuck, it's not fair. It's not fair at all.You look over your notes. You can't see a single word. Your vision's getting blurry. You wipe your eyes again. To save yourself the embarrassment, you close your eyes and rest your head on the desk, clicking your pen closed. It's not fucking fair. You don't want this. You don't want to do anything. Everything you do is pointless anyway. You don't want to play your character. It's been only half a day but you don't know if you can keep it up forever. As much as you hate to admit it, you're breaking down. You can't take it anymore. Every time they come to you with a broken smile, you just want to run away. You decided to stand strong. But you're wearing down. And eventually, you'll crumble. You don't care about them. You don't care about them at all. You don't even care about yourself. You wait another ten minutes. Twenty. Class isn't even done yet, but you can't stand it anymore.>Skip the rest of school and go to the rooftop. >Go to the rooftop.>Go.>Just a little more. You're fine. You're fine, you're fine, you're fine you're fine you're fine.
>>45986898Hey it gives pathos to the point the audience is eating it up.
>>45986957>Skip the rest of school and go to the rooftop.
>>45986957>>Go to the rooftop.Time to finally become an hero of this story.
>>45986957>>Skip the rest of school and go to the rooftop.
>>45986957>>Skip the rest of school and go to the rooftop.Oh boy. Nina is or Yori are going to be up there, right?
>>45986957>Just a little more. You're fine. You're fine, you're fine, you're fine you're fine you're fine.FIGHT IT
>>45986957>Skip the rest of school and go to the rooftop.Time to go to the roof and stare off longingly into the distance like a true protagonist. Or jump.
No guys we can do it come on come on.Consider this a vote for option 4.
>>45986957>Just a little more.Hold on, Satoshi!
>>45987003I almost guarantee Nina is up there. She actually knows us, and so well expect us. Yori is probably keeping her distance oUT of pain right now. You know, unless her character has completely 180dBut I say we make it through this class before getting to the roof, even if we just doodle and stuff in our notebook just to make it byLess melodramatic and won't let any girls know we left. Gives us a better chance of not running into others.
>>45986957>>Just a little more. You're fine. You're fine, you're fine, you're fine you're fine you're fine.It`s not gonna get better if you just run away.But i can`t blame you for doing that.We need to find hiro and tell him about the anime.
>>45986957>>Just a little more. You're fine. You're fine, you're fine, you're fine you're fine you're fine.
>>45987066The fact we know we are going to the rooftop after class should be enough to get us through this one. It's only 10 to 20 more minutes.
>>45987066Yeah, I see what you mean. Changing >>45987003to>Just a little more. You're fine. You're fine, you're fine, you're fine you're fine you're fine.
>>45986957>Just a little more. You're fine. You're fine, you're fine, you're fine you're fine you're fine.Don't give up!
>>45987081We can call him in the time between classes when we go to the roof after class ends
>>45986957>Just a little more. You're fine. You're fine, you're fine, you're fine you're fine you're fine.
>>45987008Changing my vote from this to>Just a little more. You're fine. You're fine, you're fine, you're fine you're fine you're fine.

I dont understand these feelings help.Remember when we kissed a girl that one time, I miss that.
>>45987258All I can remember is pain...
I just want to wake up form this nightmare
>>45987258Cherish those moments anon.They are gone now.
>>45987355Can't wake up.
>Just a little more. You're fine. You're fine, you're fine, you're fine you're fine you're fine. >Even if it means you draw through every page of your notebook.>Fuck.No. You can make it. Hang in there. You flip to a blank page of your notebook and shade in every odd row. Then every even. You draw circles and square and you don't care anymore. Next page. Draw. Next page. Next page. Flip, flip, flip. God, let it end already. “Satoshi.” The teacher interrupts you by calling on you. “Could you give us the answer to the next question?” “Yeah.” You swallow. You take the time to stare at the board. You know this one because it was on the notes you looked over on break. You tell her your answer and immediately sit down. You can barely remember what you just said. “Satoshi,” the teacher says again, taking off his spectacles. “Are you feeling unwell? We could take you to the infirmary.” Everyone's eyes are on you. You desperately try to crack a smile but you can't. You can't at all. With an empty face, you shake your head. “I'm okay.” Patricia, Shina, and Hiro look at you in sorrow. Nina doesn't look over but instead trembles in her seat. “I'm fine,” you repeat. The teacher makes a harrowing expression but otherwise returns to teaching. You stare into your desk until the bell rings, where you take your bag and run to the rooftop. You burst up the stairs and swing open the door to the roof. Back facing the railing, you lean back and sit down, gasping for air. The cool air hits your face. From the top of the school, you can see the students pass by, giggling to themselves. You raise a hand to the sun, blocking the sharp rays of light entering your vision. The door creaks slowly, indicating another person joining you on the roof. Turning your head over, you see an anxious Hiro waving to you. “Hey, man.”
“...How'd you know I was here?” you grumble. Hiro laughs gently. “You always run away to the roof whenever you want to sulk alone.” Pausing, he sits down next to you. “I think you should talk to them. Everybody's worried about you.”“I can't do that, Hiro.” You hang your head down. “You don't understand.” “That's why I'd like you to explain it to me.” Hiro says, unwavering. “Explain it to all of us. You're shutting us out, Satoshi. How would you ever expect us to understand if you don't tell us? You know you don't have to do everything yourself, right?” >”Hiro. Things will never be the same again.”>”I'm like this because I have to do everything myself.”>”I think it's best for everyone if they don't talk to me again.”
>>45987536We need to fucking explain this anime bullshit to Hiro now. This is the moment.
>>45987536>>>”I'm like this because I have to do everything myself.”
>>45987536>”I'm like this because I have to do everything myself.”we End of Evangelion: The Quest now
>I think it's best for everyone if they don't talk to me again.Sorry guys.
>>45987536>”I'm like this because I have to do everything myself.”
>>45987536>”I think it's best for everyone if they don't talk to me again.”
>>45987536>”Hiro. Things will never be the same again.”
And then Satoshi and Hiro made out.
>>45987536>>”Hiro. Things will never be the same again.”>”I'm like this because I have to do everything myself.”For god's sake just tell him everything and be done with it.
>>45987626YEA- I MEAN, NOOO!!!
>>45987536>>”Hiro. Things will never be the same again.”>>”I'm like this because I have to do everything myself.”Fuck man.
>>45987536>"You ever just get the feeling that you have to just do everything. That everything in existence relies on you and you alone being a gigantic asshole? That you can never really be in any kind of meaningful relationship of any kind? Because that is what it feels like to be me Hiro. That I HAVE to do everything myself or the world will end."
>>45987536>”I think it's best for everyone if they don't talk to me again.”>"But if you really want to know, ask Nina."Fuck it. Shoving our issues onto someone else always works, right?
Now, when you read this you may think I'm joking, but this might be our last and best chance.>"Hiro I'm an anime."
>>45987650This. If hiro's aware, he'll get the message. We best call Nina up after hiro.
>>45987626Man it'd be fucking hilarious if Satoshi was gay
>>45987719>>45987650>>45987735This is a very bad idea and you should feel bad for suggesting it.
>>45987763Why. We are fucking destroying ourselves because we can't be open with fucking anyone.Literately the only person we can talk to, without worrying about destroying the universe, is Hiro.
>>45987536>"THEY are watching us. We can't talk about it here."
>>45987802Wrong. It's not Hiro, it's Nina. And revealing that it's all an anime and that we gotta play the part at the wrong time and to the wrong person will make us look like we went insane in a span of a single day.
>>45987839We are obviously avoiding Nina.And yes Hiro might not belive us, but he wants to help us and we need to talk with someone.
>>45987839It's also a bad idea to let Hiro know we've NTR'd every girl from him
>>45987839We WENT insane in a span of a single day.We need help and Hiro is the best option that we have.
>>45987861We aren't avoiding Nina. Nina has kept her distance. Additionally she hasn't pursued us at all. If anything she's been honest and supportive compared to others jumping on us. Also I realized we may have become the mc around the time of the hot spring incident
”I'm like this because I have to do everything myself.” Your voice trembles. “I feel like I'm teetering on the verge of a cliff every day because I know that I have to do it. Not because nobody else will do it, but because I HAVE to do it. I'm being played, like a marionette to a puppeteer. And I was so fed up with it. But I can't even run away.” "I don't know what you mean." Hiro grows quiet. “Have you considered asking people for some help?” You nod. “I have. Multiple times.” “Satoshi,” Hiro raises his voice. “You ASS! I don't know what the hell you consider me as, but dammit, you're my best friend! We've known each other for who knows how many years now? It's as simple as, 'Hey Hiro, I need some help.' I might not be able to actually help but, but you should at least KNOW that I got your back!” Hiro's never called anybody an ass before, let alone you. “I know you've always been like this, always wanting to be the one to take all the blame, but you gotta open up to us. I'm not going to let you martyr yourself because you think you know best!” You heave a great sigh. “...Tell everyone to meet me outside of the entrance after school.” You're breaking. “Let everyone except Yori know.” “Why?”“Because....”>”Tell Yori to meet me here.”>”I have something to tell her.”>”Actually, stay here. I'm going to bring Yori here right now.”
>>45987956What? What about yori?We should be talking to Nina first.
>>45987956>>”Tell Yori to meet me here.”>>”I have something to tell her.”Time to chose best girl
>>45987956>”Tell Yori to meet me here.”
>>45987956>>>”I have something to tell her.”Anyone wondering why this is our prompt should probably consider that the prompts come directly from the character
>>45987956>”Actually, stay here. I'm going to bring Yori here right now.”
>>45987956>Tell Yori to meet me here.Wait is this happening or am I being tricked?
>>45988024Oh fuck i just realize that.Is him taking control of his life back?We have no choice but to watch?
>>45987956>”Tell Yori to meet me here.”On the bright side none of them seem staby staby towards us.
>>45988024Well he is doing his own damn thing now. I'm not adverse. If he chooses yori, that's on him. But he still oughta talk with Nina first considering she's the only othe one capable of planning with us and respecting our decisions.
>>45988180Planning is what got us here.He's going to try to end the anime though.
>>45988130NoNo school days.
>>45988198at this point, his suffering his the focal point of the plot.Resolving that will end it. Even kisses someone, it isn't a kiss of resolution. The audience knows it even if he tries to fake one
>>45987956HERE WE GO AGAIN
Just let me die, there is no longer anything left for me
>>45987956pls op. I know break is almost over for you, but not like this.
>>45987956>”Tell Yori to meet me here.”>”I have something to tell her.”>”Actually, stay here. I'm going to bring Yori here right now.”>"And to everyone in my head, thanks for trying, now let me do this shit, I got this."
>>45988318Yknow what? If Satoshi thinks he's got his shit straight, I'm willing to sit it out. He doesn't get any more input though. He's on his own until he needs guidance
“Tell Yori to meet me here.” When he questions you with his frown, you shrug. “It's personal.” “Alright. I trust you.” Hiro stands up and dusts his pants off. With an anxious tone, he adds, “Please try not to make Yori cry again. You know how delicate she is.” “I'm not going to promise,” you say, running your hand through your hair. “And... come to think of it, isn't this your first time skipping class?”“Yeah,” Hiro says angrily. “And you're going to owe me big time for that!” And so, Hiro shuts the door. You sigh. All you can do is wait. A few minutes pass, but it feels like an eternity to you. You're actually nervous. What do you tell Yori? You don't actually have any idea, but you have been running away for long enough. She's your friend. She deserves better. The door opens halfway before shutting back closed. You raise an eyebrow. The door opens again. Yori pushes the door open and enters the roof. Her eyes are misty, her are lips wobbly, and her hands are trembling. “S-Satoshi...”
“Yori,” you call her gently. “Let's talk about what happened.” “No,” she mumbles. “I don't want to talk about it.” “I'm afraid we don't have a choice anymore.” You take a step forward. “We can't run away forever.” “I'm okay with being left behind. Satoshi. I know I'm holding you back, but even so...” A couple of tears stream down her cheeks. Yori, hiccuping, starts talking. “Even so... I was selfish because I wanted you to stay with me. Now, as long as you're happy, I don't care what happens anymore.” She holds back her sobs. “Even... even if you don't choose me!” Then Yori can't hold herself back anymore. She straws bawling. “Satooooshi, I didn't want this to happen!”“Oh, you big crybaby. You know that I won't leave anyone behind.” You pull her in for a hug. She buries her face in your chest. “You're getting my shirt wet. Regardless, I'm going to tell you right now. I'm not going to choose you.”“That's...” Yori trails off. “That's fine. But... are you doing this for Nina?”>”No. I'm doing this for everyone.”>”No. I'm doing this for me.”
>>45988488>”No. I'm doing this for everyone.”
>>45988488>>”No. I'm doing this for me.”
>No, I'm doing this for me.We should. For once, you know?
>>45988488>”No. I'm doing this for me.”
>>45988488>>”No. I'm doing this for me.”>"Both for my sanity and my free will."
>>45988488>>”No. I'm doing this for everyone.”
>>45988488>>”No. I'm doing this for everyone.”It's true.
>>45988465”No. I'm doing this for everyone.”
Lets not lie to the girl. We've never done anything for our sakes, and we never will.>I'm doing this for everyone.
>>45988488>>”No. I'm doing this for everyone, me included.”
>>45988488I somehow find this music appropriatehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kBqP06eDRY
>>45988558>>”No. I'm doing this for everyone, me included."This one.
>>45988488>"No. I'm doing this for everyone."Guys. This is it. This is the choice that gets Satoshi back. I think he can come to terms with himself after this.
>>45988488>Now is the time. Slip your hands around her neck and start squeezing.
>>45988558THIS>>”No. I'm doing this for everyone, me included.”
>>45988612NO ANON NO
>>45988488No im doing this for mw
“No.” And finally, after what it seems like an eternity, you smile. It may not be a pretty one, but you hope that Yori understands. “I'm doing this for everyone.” “You smiled.” Yori's eyes well up with tears again and she initiates a hug of her own. “You finally smiled.” “I promised Hiro to try and not make you cry.” You awkwardly embrace her. “I've failed tremendously.” Yori looks up to you, wiping her tears. “These are tears of happiness.” You let go of Yori and sigh. “Alright, well. Please go on ahead and wait for me at the entrance. I have a lot of explaining to do.” “Oh. O-Okay...” Hesitantly, she heads for the door. “Satoshi?” “Yeah?” She smiles shyly. “...I really like you. Just saying.” You shake your head at her and say nothing. Then, after Yori leaves, you wait. You wait until Nina finds you. And lo, she comes. You can hear panicked footsteps leading up towards the roof. The door slams open. “Satoshi! What in the world are you doing!?” >”I have some explaining to do, don't I?” >”How nice of you to join me. Want to get something to eat?”>”Something only the protagonist can pull, off... hopefully.”
>>45989114>>”I have some explaining to do, don't I?”"Here, sit down and I will."
>>45989114>”Something only the protagonist can pull, off... hopefully.”
>>45989114>>”Something only the protagonist can pull, off... hopefully.”HAREM END
>>45989114>”How nice of you to join me. Want to get something to eat?”
>>45989114>”How nice of you to join me. Want to get something to eat?”Satoshi is back
>>45989114>>”How nice of you to join me. Want to get something to eat?”
>>45989114>>”Something only the protagonist can pull, off... hopefully.”>”I have some explaining to do, don't I?”
>>45989114I have some explaining to do dont i
>>45989114>”I have some explaining to do, don't I?”Nina needs a proper explanation, or she'll NEVER go along with what we try to pull.
>>45989114>”Something only the protagonist can pull, off... hopefully.”Oh THANK GOD. Is the suffering finally over?
>>45989216Never This shows runs on torturing the mc
>>45989114>>”I have some explaining to do, don't I?”
>>45989114>”I have some explaining to do, don't I?” >Want to get something to eat while I do?
>>45989114>>”Something only the protagonist can pull, off... hopefully.”>>”I have some explaining to do, don't I?”
>>45989114Well he has to explain to us also
Calling now so I can write. >”Something only the protagonist can pull, off... hopefully.”
>>45989351B-but explanations...cause I really don't know what he has in mind.
>>45989312The only one that needs to explain things is that freaking director
“Something only the protagonist can pull off... hopefully.” You tap a finger to your chin. “I'm just going to run with my plan and see what happens.” “Was...” Nina averts her gaze. “Was all of what happened today a part of your plans?” You soften your gaze. “No,” you sigh. “It wasn't. To be honest, I was ready to give up. I thought that if I could cut all contact with everyone, we wouldn't have to be in this situation. At first, I was angry. I didn't want to choose. I wanted to quit. I didn't want to be the protagonist. But after today, I knew that I can't choose to be the side character. I physically cannot stand to see any of the girls sad. I felt like I was going to die when I was ignoring everyone.” Nina asks uncertainly. “Is... is that because you're the protagonist?” “Damn straight.” You puff out your chest in pride. “It's the harem protagonist's biggest strength and weakness. They have to help everyone. No matter how fucking dumb it is to do so.” “Yeah. You're right.” Nina smiles. “So, what's your plan now?”“Like I said,” you say, raising a finger. “Something only the protagonist can pull off.” “I don't know what that means.” “Don't you know?” You laugh. “In anime, you don't tell anyone what the plan is until after you've done it.” Nina blinks. “Oh, right.” Before you head out with her, she stops you by grabbing your hand. “I was worried about you.” >Say nothing, just smile genuinely.>”Good. Now you know how I feel all the time!”>”I was worried about me too.”
>>45989762>Say nothing, just smile genuinely.
>”Good. Now you know how I feel all the time!”We're back baby!
>>45989762>>”Good. Now you know how I feel all the time!”
>>45989762>”Good. Now you know how I feel all the time!”
>>45989351This is an emotional roller coaster.https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=mrZRURcb1cM
>>45989762>>”Good. Now you know how I feel all the time!”A little wit couldn't hurt.
>>45989762>>Say nothing, just smile genuinely.Activating plan paradigm shift. Satoshi actually insulting a group of thugs from a rival school and is going to make a school brawling anime
>>45989762>>Say nothing, just smile genuinely.
>>45989762>>”I was worried about me too.”
>”Good. Now you know how I feel all the time!”
>>45989762>Say nothing, just smile genuinely.Use our smile, now that we have it back. Real smile, now!
>>45989869This is going to end up badly.I aprove.
>Say nothing, just smile genuinely.Called. Writing now.
>>45989762Man genuine smiles at a time line thisNano please. Sequel quest
>Say nothing, just smile genuinely.You don't say anything. Turning around, you take a step closer to Nina and smile warmly. It's... actually a lot easier than you thought it would be. That being said, you don't have many words to offer Nina. But she throws you off with the reaction she gives you.“S-Satoshi,” Nina says, blushing. She raises her arms to cover the blush creeping out of her cheeks. “I've never noticed it before, but you have a really nice smile. You're really cute when you do.” “Really?” you shrug. “I've never particularly liked my smile.”“Well then...” She pulls you slightly down, kissing you gently. Nina presses against just a little bit, leaning onto you. Her lips are warm. “Just gotta give you more reasons to smile then.”You stare. “At least be fair to the other girls. You've kissed me twice already.” “Don't get too full of yourself, protagonist,” Nina replies, miffed. “I'm the main girl. I get special privileges.”“Whatever you say, main girl,” you scoff. She looks up at you. "Could I have another?" You grin. "Not a chance."
EVERYTHING IS GOOD AGAIN WE GOT THE KISSES.
>>45990747Get rekt scrub
>>45990747So yeah I don't give 2 shot about the others but we are so getting into a relationship with nina axons?
>>45990851no way are we settling with one. unless we can somehow make relationships out of nothing for the other girls, this harem show is going to go on being frustratingly ambiguous
>>45990890We get Nina, Hiro can have the rest.
>>45990747What's this warm fuzzy feeling in my heart? This isn't despair.
>>45990851In all honesty Nina seems to be only one he might actually like in that way. Other than Yori the other girls just suddenly wanted his dick cause he was nice to them a couple times, but there doesn't seem to be any mutual attraction from Satoshi.
>>45991004Very good point there. I still think that Yuko has liked us for a while. And we've been in a friendly relationship with her for a while.
>>45991004If this does end up being a thing where we do acquiesce to the girls having us, a weekly schedule of times to monopolize us would probably be a good idea, weekends would be our free time of course.
>>45991081So what?Just cause we are friends with her for longer means we obliged to date herThere a reason the term friend zone exist
The two of you arrive at the entrance, where everybody's waiting for you. The atmosphere's tense. All the girls stare at you silently, unsure whether you are still angry or not. Time to dispel this nonsense. Taking a step forward, you bow to all of them. “I'm sorry.” For a moment, no words are exchanged. They expect more words from you, but you shrug and remain silent. Immediately, Shina charges forward, putting you into an armlock. “What, that's it!? Do you have any idea how worried we all were? I thought you were never going to speak to us again!” Her lip trembles. “I hate you so much!” “Hahaha, sorry, Shina.” You let her drag you around. “I was acting out of line and I apologize for that.” “Oh.” Patricia almost sinks to the floor before Yuko catches her. “Then everything's fine again? Do you forgive us, Satoshi?”“You don't have to be sorry,” You wheeze from underneath Shina's grip. “If anything, I should be sorry. Now, uh, Shina, could you please let me go?” “Oh! Um, yeah. Sorry.” The class rep loosens her grip on your face. You suck in some air. “I just let the blood rush to my head.”“I'm just glad everything's okay now.” Yuko laughs. “I don't know what I would have done if I couldn't tease Satoshi anymore.” You scratch your head. “Well... I wouldn't say that 'everything' is okay.” >Exposition dump.>You still have to 'choose' the girl, right?
>>45991157>Exposition dump.No, no choosing the girl. We get them to accept polygamy instead.
>>45991157>>>Exposition dump.Well, that's the end but I don't mind.
>>45991157>Exposition dump. Nano it impresses me how fast you can switch from suffering to shit like this so fast.
>>45991157>Exposition dump.Guess this is it guys, it's been an honor.
Oh good. Everyone's here. Now we can slip our hands around their necks and squeeze.
>>45991278Listen, I accept you have a weird murder fetish, I cant judge,But please understand no one else here has it, and it is the least in-character thing ever.So please cool it down a bit.
>>45991157>>Exposition dump.>>45991278Stop this now anon .Last chance.
>>45991365Get a load of this guy... I myself am starting to warm up to the murder mystery thriller that Satoshi will be the killer in.
>>45991278No, no. That's impractical and out of character.We pull out our handgun, take aim, and fireRight at our own head
>>45991422And then the harem anime becomes Persona?
>>45991422No, clearly we fire our handgun into the ceiling while yelling.
>>45991157>Exposition dump.>>45991483>And then the harem anime becomes Persona?Beats the shit out of being a generic harem.
>>45991612I hope one's a bondange Angel.
>>45991483>>45991637I Aprove.SMT Harem Quest.
>>45991483>harem protagonist inexplicably liked by everyone he meets>gains powers through Social Links>also expecting inexplicable mecha somewhere down the lineDidn't expect this to become literally Bliss Stage.
>>45991648That entire picture is just perfect in every way.
>>45991648>pic>"We got shitty shaggy-dog endings because Atlus feeds on our tears and doesn't want us to have a meaningful resolution, just a temporary reprieve"Suddenly anticlimactic endings don't seem all that bad.
>We tell them were in an anime>No one believes us. We have no evidence.>Were not even in an anime. Were just crazy and Nano has some type of complex>all the girls are outraged at our claim and leave us>Harem Defeated: Best End
>>45991790And now i have a boner.Is this real?
>>45991883Yeah unreleased SMT 4 Final DLC.
>>45991883Yeah, and it's set to have an English Translation at some point down the road once it actually get developed.
THE END IS NIGH
NANO, WHERE IS UPDATE? THIS ISN'T THE 'ANTICLIMACTIC ENDING' IS IT?
>>45991791Nina would know at the end. She's main girl.
>>45992719Yup, quest's over. Go home, everybody, there's nothing to see here.
>>45992719Almost done. I might start a new thread for the next update.
>>45992794Oops, dropped trip. Still me.
