You are lifted by the collar, by a guy claiming to be your girlfriend’s boyfriend…I AM REBORN IN A HAREM ROMCOM, BUT I'M ONLY A MOB CHARACTER?! 7By: 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
>>2203697He’s fuming. The guy seems like he has no intention of letting you go. Around you a small crowd is gathering. You’ll have to take action fast.The guy is undoubtedly a [Mob], but for some reason, his features stand out to you. Like you’ve seen this guy before...But this is no time for analysis. You-->Claim he’s lying.>Apologize and flee.>”Who the hell are you and what do you want?”>Swing.
>>2203702>"NO one told me she was taken."
>>2203702>”Who the hell are you and what do you want?”need an actual name and we shouldn't reveal our actual relationship with Hanazawa just yet
>>2203702>>”Who the hell are you and what do you want?”
>>2203702>”Who the hell are you and what do you want?”
>>2203702>"You're causing a scene. If you have something to discuss with me, we should do so in private."
>>2203702“Who the hell are you and what do you want?”He shoves you away. You stay in your feet, not letting yourself be intimidated.“I don’t owe you jack,” the guy says. “Only thing I have to tell you is you go near Mayumi again, I’m going to come after you. Got that?”You hear the mutterings of the crowd.“Isn’t that Hanazawa’s…?”“What’s he doing with the gomasuri?”The guy emanates killing intent. He seems like a brash dude, so you say-->Hell no. I don’t owe you jack either.>Alright. I don’t want trouble.>Let’s be mature. Let’s talk this out privately.
>>2203793>Let’s be mature. Let’s talk this out privately.>Because I wasn't fucking told about any of this.
>>2203793>Let’s be mature. Let’s talk this out privately
>>2203793>"I think there's some things we need to straighten out. Let's talk private. No fighting."
>>2203793get this hothead out of here
>>2203793Get fucked asshole, I don't know you, nor do I care. Flip him off and walk away
>>2203793>Let’s be mature. Let’s talk this out privately.
>>2203810>>2203805I wouldn't be so belligerent if I were you. Something isn't adding up, and I think he might be able to tell us what.
>>2203793>>2203802Supporting this one. I hate the word 'mature' here, he obviously wont take it well considering the mood he's in.
>>2203819at least he can talk?
>>2203821Yeah, that's pretty much why I worded it like that.
What if the manstealer event has been building for longer than we realized? Just getting close to class rep could have triggered it, overiding the female mob we were closest too.
>>2203793“If you’re serious about this, then let’s talk about it in a private manner. Let’s be mature about this.”He’s a bit taken aback from your words, but then an evil smirk emerges from his face.“What, too cowardly to put up a fight, idiot?” He starts speaking in a louder voice. “I didn’t know you were such a coward, Yamada-san!”The crowd is silent. You can’t gauge what the mobs are thinking.He faces you again, shaking his head. “I don’t see why we even need to talk. Way I see it, you’re a stranger trying to intrude in our lives. So why don’t you piss off already? I bet you’re going to walk away now like the little sissy you are.”>Stand and look at him with your arms crossed. He’s making a fool out of himself.>Just leave. You don’t have time to deal with idiots.>Take a stance. It's about to go down.
>>2203871>Stand and look at him with your arms crossed. He’s making a fool out of himself.
>>2203871>"Fine. Because no one told me about this. At all. Ever. I'm not saying that you are her or lying, but the fact that no one even bothered to suggest that I should ease off, means that I think someone has it in for me- and set things up to use you as a cat spot to get at me without implicating themselves. I get the feeling that someone is trying to play you like a shogi piece."
>>2203871>Stand and look at him with your arms crossed. He’s making a fool out of himself.Got to be ready for his attack though.
>Just leave. This is dumb.
>>2203881I am trying very hard to see if I can't manipulate this man. He's very clearly insecure, and I want to see if I can't take advantage of it.
>>2203871Feint, then punch him in the junk.
>>2203881Try again with proper words>>2203871>Flip him off and walk away while calling him a nutjob
>>2203871>>Stand and look at him with your arms crossed. He’s making a fool out of himself.
>>2203871>Take a stance. It's about to go down.I'm getting 'overprotective over brother' vibes here. Its best for both of us to settle this like men so nobody ends up looking like a bitch/idiot.Actually fighting will probably improve our cred with the crowds as well. We are clearly fighting over something NOT in the harem.
>>2203871>Take a stance. It's about to go down.
>>2203871>Like i said lets talk it privately like a real man do. Or you settle it like a deliquent you are.If he starts punching>Take a stance
I'm seeing a majority of>>Stand and look at him with your arms crossed. He’s making a fool out of himself.Writing.
>>2203871>Stand and look at him with your arms crossed. He’s making a fool out of himself.In a DnD sesh atm so My responses are gonna be limited. Relyin on anons not to get us in some stupid shit.
>>2203945You know good and well that hope is misplaced.
>>2203945The fuck do you think this place is?
>>2203871He’s looking foolish acting like this. You decide to take the high ground. You cross your arms, and look at him, slightly shaking your head. You hope that that would be enough for him to come to his senses…But in the end, it looks like that just angered him more.“You little--!”He begins to charge at you. You ready yourself, but you’re going to be half a second slower by not being in a stance.You’ve been training with your father at night for self defense, so you feel somewhat prepared for whatever he’s going to throw at you.But…The guy moves fast, but not as fluid as Nakahara or your father. You’re no expert in fighting. But is it possible this guy is a beginner?He’s within range. You-->Dodge his first strike.>Strike first.>Take the hit. Show him who’s boss.
>>2203970>Dodge his first strike
>>2203970We gotta do a Cross Counter.
>>2203970>>Dodge his first strike.
>>2203970>tank the hit, grab his hand, give him a death stare then liver blow into uppercut
>>2203970>Dodge his first strike.>"I really don't want to get in trouble for being involved in a fight. I doubt you want that either. Can't we settle this responsibly?"
>>2203970this can't be happening, im in charge here
Actually, got a better theme.https://youtu.be/JfJDOf35YRo
>>2203970>Dodge his first strike.Dodge, dip, dive, duck, and dodge.
Majority votes Dodge>Writing.
>>2203970He swings at you with his left. You dodge by ducking to the right.But--“Nngh…!”He may be inexperienced, but he’s quick. The half second disadvantage is apparent. You try to get closer but he’s already swinging with his right. You step back to avoid his flailing.With his right cross not hitting anything, he stumbles for a bit. Could be a chance…!>Punch him in the jaw.>Tackle him to the ground.>Ignore it. You’re not here to fight, right?
>>2204058>Ignore it. You’re not here to fight, right?
>>2204058>Step in, shift your body weight and toss them to the ground, and make it so that you pin him underneath you."Can we talk now?"
>>2204058> Trip him so he falls over with his own momentum
> Trip him so he falls over with his own momentumWriting.
>>2204058You dash. He tries to react. The awkward position means he couldn't move fast enough. You sweep his feet and he tumbles down to the ground.“Guh--!”The fall seems to have winded him. You stand over him, panting. The next thing to do is--“Yamada-san!”“Ken-kun!”“Yukio!”You feel dragged back by two pairs of arms.It’s Ryou’s and Nakamura Eiji’s.From the corner of your eye, you see the crowd part. Hanazawa emerges from the mobs, and she rushes…Towards the guy in the ground, trying to sit up.He’s glaring at you. He tries to push up, but Hanazawa keeps him from doing so.“Yukio, stop it!”Nakamura and Ryou keep their grip on both of your arms.“Ken-kun, let’s get out of here…” Ryou begs into your ear."Ryou, what the hell--""Not now, Ken-kun!"Nakamura is looking for a way out of the crowd, which has grown quite sizable now.>”Let go of me, both of you.”>”...Yes, let’s get out of here.”>Write in
>>2204156>”Let go of me, both of you.” We can't just leave when all the pieces are in place
>>2204156>lets get out of here
>>2204156>”Let go of me, both of you.”
>>2204156>>”Let go of me, both of you.”I can walk on my own.>”...Yes, let’s get out of here.”
>>2204156>”Let go of me, both of you.”So if pres is the man eater foes that make us the girl eater to?
>>2204156>”Let go of me, both of you.”We can walk.>”...Yes, let’s get out of here.”>>2203945Welcome to your first mistake.
>>2204156>>”...Yes, let’s get out of here.”>But one of you better explain what the fuck is going on.
>>2204156>”...Yes, let’s get out of here.”
>>2204156>>”Let go of me, both of you.”She went to him first.
>>2204156>”Let go of me, both of you.”>I can walk on my own.>”...Yes, let’s get out of here.”
>>2204194We did basically just fucking kick him.And he could very well be her older brother being a weird cunt about his little sister dating the school ass-kisser.
>>2204156>..Yes, let’s get out of here.
>>2204206He just said he was her boyfriend. That is one fucked up thinking there. But i guess this is anime land so logic is already out of bounds
I count a tie on both votes, so I'm going with>”Let go of me, both of you.”>I can walk on my own.>”...Yes, let’s get out of here.”Writing.
Dang it I'm late. But just for the record here's my vote.>Let go of me, both of you.I really hope that that's not perceived as an angry shrug off.
>>2204156“Ryou, Nakamura-san, could you let go of me?”“Ken-kun…”“I won’t do any trouble, class rep. Don’t worry.”She lets go of you, and so does he.“Thanks, class rep. I could walk on my own, you know? Let’s get out of here.”You leave without waiting for their reply. The crowd parts to let you pass through. You don’t bother looking back.-------The whole walk was a daze. You didn’t know what to think. You were expecting to be mad, or sad, or something. But instead, you feel hollow.“Ken-kun.”The voice of the class rep brings you back to your senses.“Are you alright? You’ve been walking aimlessly for a while now.”Indeed, you’re in a part of town you don’t recognize. She looks confused and worried about your current state. Nakamura Eiji stands there, saying nothing.>”Did you know about this Yukio guy?”>”Is this another one of your schemes?”>Write in.
>>2204286>>”Did you know about this Yukio guy?”
>>2204286>”Did you know about this Yukio guy?”
>>2204286>WHO is this Yukio guyAsk a question that will confirm his relation to Hanesawa
>>2204286>"What the fuck is Yukio to Hanazawa?"
>>2204286Just go home.Get some sleep.Hanazawa's fault for not telling us.
>>2204286”Did you know about this Yukio guy?”I think we should just head on hime afterwards though. Cool off and take stock of the situation as it feels like this Yukio person came outta nowhere. It's best we investigate before doing anything stupid without any intel.
>>2204348what kind of idiot tells their side guy about their main squeeze?
>>2204286“Did you know about this Yukio guy, class rep?”“Well...only recently. But yeah, I know him. I was with Eiji awhile ago when I saw him stomping off to somewhere. Then I saw Hanazawa looking for him, and, well…we had a hunch he was coming for you.”She twirls with her hair and sighs. “Look, I don’t know what he told you, but fighting is not allowed in school grounds, Ken-kun. Even if I did catch you outside the gates. And he’s an underclassman as well, what will the others think?”“Underclassman? He’s taller than me.”She laughs. “Right?”But her smiling face quickly returns to being serious.“You need to apologize. To both of them.”“...And why do I have to do that? He’s the one who started it. Who is this Yukio guy to Hanazawa anyway?”Slap!You hear a sound from the corner of the street.It’s the sound of palm against cheek.“You said what to Yamada-kun?!”Though this is the first time you’ve heard it, it’s unmistakable.That is the angry voice of Hanazawa.>cont’d
>>2204373The kind that tells their main guy about their side one.
>>2204380oops forgot my trip
>>2204367That's my big issue. This seems like far too big of a thing to just...not be noted at all. If Hanazawa was cheating, that's one thing, but you'd think we'd catch wind of something otherwise.>>2204380Huh. ID change.Also why the HELL should we apologize? Normally I'm all for being nice, but we haven't done a single aggressive thing to him, even during that 'fight'.
>>2204394>Also why the HELL should we apologize? Normally I'm all for being nice, but we haven't done a single aggressive thing to him, even during that 'fight'.AgreedWe were being as nonviolent as we could be.
>>2204380The three of you look at each other, before scrambling to get a peek at the corner.You spot Hanazawa, back turned from the three of you, speaking to Yukio. His head is turned, his left cheek red. Though you couldn’t see her face, you could tell she’s mad just from the air.“Mayu--”“Don’t you dare call me by my first name right now! Why did you get in a fight with Yamada-kun?!”“But you said--”“Shut up! I know what I said, and I don’t recall telling you to get in a fight! What will the others think of you and me now? Do you want to be branded as a delinquent?!”“But--”“I said shut up!”You shiver. Somehow, Hanazawa is ten times more terrifying than the tall Yukio awhile ago. Even the poor guy looks pale right now.>Step in and calm Hanazawa down>Keep watching>Write in
>>2204394How about we do one of those non apologies like"I'm sorry that YOU made things get out of hand and got yourself hurt"Or"I apologize for tripping you after you tried to beat the living shit out of me. I'm a monster I know" But this isn't really for us. This is more for the collective since they'll think we started a fight and hurt somebody Hanazawa care about. We'll be the ass kisser that picks on younger kids.
>>2204402We could've chosen to not trip him, there was no reason to. He was being unreasonable, but we could've kept dodging and sidestepping.
>>2204422>Step in and calm Hanazawa down
>>2204422>Keep watchingNo stepping in until they say what she actually said to him.
>>2204422>>Step in and calm Hanazawa down
>>2204446It's really not our life. We don't have enough control over it in-character or out of character.
>>2204422>Keep watchingDon't anon but in reality>I'm going homeLet's not bother them i dont want a pissed Hanazawa on us and its not our business. We can tell our story when we get home or when Hanazawa will talk to us.Please be sensible.
>>2204455This is anime world; sensible is disapproved of by universal fiat.
>>2204446As much as I'd love that to be true we're still bound by the rules of the show and even if we weren't the collective are too powerful to piss off.
>>2204455>>2204464And by universal fiat I mean QM fiat.
I'm all for her brother/good friend/ whatever the fuck getting chewed out by Hanazawa right now.
Although if it turns out she is two-timing, I want to know why and then cut her out of our life entirely. That doesn't mean we cry like a bitch and swear eternal vengeance, though.
>>2204455Changing mine to going home also.But ask class rep and eiji to watch Hanzawa to make sure she is okay.
I count majority>Keep watching.Writing.
>>2204422You stay hunkered down and keep watching.“Yukio. I want you to apologise to Yamada-kun as soon as you can.”“Wha--Never! After he hurt you?”“He didn’t hurt me. He never hurted me.”“Oh really? Now you’re saying that?”She pauses. What…?“...Mind your own business, Yukio. Apologise to Yamada-kun or I’ll never talk to you again.”He seems mad, but in the end he scratches his head and sighs.“Fine. If you want, I’ll apologise to him right now. Oi, you three. Come out.”Crap. Looks like he caught you.Hanazawa turns around, eyes wide open. The three of you look at each other. There’s no point running away now.The three of you come out. Hanazawa’s staring at you, somewhat nervous.“Yamada-kun...how long were you--”“Don’t worry, I think they just got here.”Yukio looks at you. From his eyes, you could see he knew you were there the whole time. But for some reason, he’s covering for you.“Yamada-senpai. I would like to apologise to you for my actions.”“Wait, hang on Yukio-kun.” Ryou steps forward. “Why are you apologising to him?”“It’s because I started the fight, Hikaru-senpai. I only ended up in my back because he was defending himself. I don’t think he had any real intention to fight me, even if I was taunting him.”He bows down in front of you.“Allow me to properly introduce myself. My name is Hanazawa Yukio. I’m Mayumi-neesan’s younger brother. I am deeply sorry for my actions.”>cont’d
>>2204569>Kinda figured. S'why I didn't bother taking a swing at you. It's cool.At first I was wondering what he meant by “Oh really? Now you’re saying that?” and then I realized that she probably told him about the whole 'not telling her about the asskisser thing and all the shit we're involved in' and thus meant emotionally.
>>2204569We should comment on how friggin huge he is for his age.This kid...he's gonna be massive when he finishes highschool.
>>2204587This, it was kind of obvious he was either her brother or a childhood friend....or a one sided love interest I guess
>>2204618No, he got told about us keeping our playing the harem game from her, decided that we weren't worthy of her, and decided to pose as her boyfriend that was never mentioned in order to get us to stay away from her.
>>2204569>Sure, as long as call me niisan.
>>2204618If only.Now that would have been a neato twist
>>2204569Thanks to the invitation of the Hanazawa siblings, you find yourself in Hanazawa’s room.The room itself is plain, not much different from your own room. The curtains are unremarkable, and even the sheets are a boring, bland beige.The difference, however, is that it has a few things that makes the room remarkable.First is a bookshelf, stacked to the brim with different kinds of shonen manga.Second, by the study table, is a stack of books about programming.And third, perhaps strangest of them all, is a dual monitor computer, with a mechanical keyboard and a CPU with flashing LED lights.“Whoa,” You catch Ryou observing the different trinkets in the room, especially with the massive computer. “I didn’t know Yukio-kun was a big nerd.”You keep silent, but still couldn’t keep the smile on your face. It took everything to stop yourself from saying, ‘Wrong Hanazawa, class rep.’The three of you are seated in the coffee table, waiting. Hanazawa left the three of you here and said she was going to prepare refreshments. Yukio went off to somewhere, probably to his own room.So, in the meantime…>Maybe I should help Hanazawa out downstairs>Ryou, about last time…>You’ve been quiet for some time now, Nakamura-san.
>>2204649>Maybe I should help Hanazawa out downstairs.Helping is a thing people do right?
>>2204649>>You’ve been quiet for some time now, Nakamura-san.
>>2204618supporting>your sister needs to see other men, kid.
>>2204649>>Maybe I should help Hanazawa out downstairsWe need to at least settle things with her before anything else.
>>2204649>Maybe I should help Hanazawa out downstairsEven Hanazawa has a better rig then I do
>>2204649>>Maybe I should help Hanazawa out downstairs
>>2204649>Maybe I should help Hanazawa out downstairs
>>2204661Damn it it hurts to see Hanazawa has a better rig than me too. I mean she probably has the latest Telni i7 with 128gb processor
>>2204673>128gb processorI'm not sure anyone in the world has a processor with that much capacity.It'd also probably help to say that processor don't dont run on GB but Hertz so 128GHz, which I doubt she could power in a House
>>2204673I'm more jealous of her protection from the Spectre and Meltdown exploits.
>>2204696What you don't have mutiple genarators to juice up your machine? Also don't forget we are still in anime land
>>2204649“Ryou, Nakamura-san, excuse me for a moment…”“Eh? Ken-kun, where are you going?”“I think I’ll just be heading down to help Hanazawa.”“I’ll help t--”Nakamura prepares to stand up, but Ryou stops him.“Actually, Eiji, I have something to ask you.”“Ah, sure.”As he settles back down by the table, Ryou looks back and gives you a wink. You nod, and head out the room.“Now which direction was it again…?”The Hanazawa household is not massive, but the doors and hallways are featureless and plain.You feel a presence behind you. You turn to see Yukio.“Restroom’s that way, Yamada-senpai.”“Actually, I’m looking for the stairs.”“Going already?”“No, I was thinking of helping your sister…”He glares at you.“Hey, Yamada-senpai. What’s your relation to nee-san? She never tells me.”>She’s my girlfriend.>We’re close friends.>We’re classmates.>If Hanazawa doesn’t want to tell you, then I shouldn’t either.
>>2204725>>If Hanazawa doesn’t want to tell you, then I shouldn’t either.
>>2204725>I Fucked your sister
>>2204725>If Hanazawa doesn’t want to tell you, then I shouldn’t either.
>>2204725>She’s my girlfriend.
>>2204725>If Hanazawa doesn’t want to tell you, then I shouldn’t either.>But I'll ask her to tell you once I get some things sorted out with her
>>2204725>If Hanazawa doesn’t want to tell you, then I shouldn’t either. Suffice to say we're very close.
>>2204725If she hasn't told you, it's not my place to say.>But just for the record, I do care for her.
>>2204725>If Hanazawa doesn’t want to tell you, then I shouldn’t either.Evade, Evade!
>>2204725>If Hanazawa doesn’t want to tell you, then I shouldn’t either.>Other:" One thing about girls kid. If they won't tell you about so ething either isn't your place to get in the middle of it or she just want to have the perfect place and oportunity to tell you."
>>2204725i'm the cooki serve her dick
>>2204725>If Hanazawa doesn’t want to tell you, then I shouldn’t either.>Girls are like that, mate. I just want her to be happy.
>>2204725>If Hanazawa doesn’t want to tell you, then I shouldn’t either.>It'd be best if we don't rile up your sister further for now.
>>2204725“If Hana...er...if Mayumi hasn’t told you yet, then it isn’t really my place to say.”He stares at you, silent. You know notice why he looked familiar, despite never meeting him before - he has the same eyes as Hanazawa.“Listen, Yamada-senpai. Stay away from my sister.”“You’re being too overprotective a little brother, Yukio.”“Maybe I am. Do you think I care? And I don’t think I’m being too overbearing in wanting to protect my sister against a guy hated by most of the student body.”You wince. So it has even penetrated into the lower levels.“I’ll never hurt your sister, Yukio. I care about her. I want her to be happy”“That so? Then, do something for me, will ya?”“What is it?”He stretches his neck, motioning to Hanazawa’s bedroom.“I want you to crush Hikaru Ryou.”(TO BE CONT’D)
>>2204850>“I want you to crush Hikaru Ryou.”
>>2204850Why the fuck do you want that?
>>2204850that's not really much of a cliffhangerI mean, I didn't expect it, but it's not leaving me in suspense eitherI kind of like it.Too many of your TBC's have left me in trepidation.
>>2204850>I want you to crush Hikaru Ryoubut y tho
I am curious now as to why he would want that, wonder if he's in one of the waifu clubs? My guess is with tezuka
>>2204850Fucking hell, can't we spend a day without getting further into this web of intrigues?Also, nice run once again, BSG.>>2204858Batter did nothing wrong.
>>2204850Yeah how about no.
>"I don't crush my friends. And Ryou is your sister's friend, too."
>>2204850>“I want you to crush Hikaru Ryou.”with your dick
>>2204867Either that or Rinko’s, can’t trust a kouhai with blank yandere eyes.>Captcha: select all images with Bus>What does this mean???
>>2204904But I already did that to your sister. :^)
He knows something is going on between you and his sister, and the whole school knows you have been hanging out with Ryou. He probably thinks its some sort of love triangle, and he wants you to crush Ryou romantically, reject her advances.
>mfw all these reactionary anonsBesides, we do owe Mayumi a bit of slack, she has been nothing but understanding towards us after all.
>>2205031We're not gonna give her slack. We're gonna give her the dick. Again.
>>2204914>hold up your hand and see if he'll high five you for that sick burnDo it fag
>>2205035While her brother watches? Because that would pretty well answer his question.
I love how we have to point out to everyone we talked to that we aren't actually in this to get Ryou to win the Eijibowl, necessarily. We're here to get her to a better state mentally so she doesn't feel like she has to get a boyfriend in order to feel loved.
Damn I was just re-reading the first interactions with Hanazawa and I'm falling in love with her again. She really is a sweet pure Waifu.
>>2205409We gotta get that bitch interested in a hobby. Bitches love hobbies!Now what the hell sorta fun shit is there to get in to in Generic Backwater Japanese Small Town #041568 that doesn't involve the school? Maybe we could help her do the cooking thing, pursue maybe baking or feed some aspiration to become a head chef at some swank restaurant in Roppongi Hills?
Also when are going to start work on writing our Novel?
And there were a lot of side/mob characters in the beginning of this quest that got shown once then never mentioned again
>>2205548isin't that pretty much how mob characters work though?
>>2205561But some of them seemed like MAYBE they had quirks like our Neighbor and I think there was some guy following the main cast around
And now I'm on the thread where QM got banned for posting Shota Kiddie Hentai and him saying how it was totally worth it. Ahh good memories.
ahh, that brings me back too :D
Ahh and now that time Hanazawa Said she was FILLED with our character then the QM calling everybody pussies for not taking her to our bed after our first date.
And I didn't notice this when I first read that thread but SOMEBODY LEWDED PONYTAIL WAIFUhttps://pastebin.com/LQYrnJhx
>>2205597Yes, that would be the QM
>>2205600Ohh yeah it totally was. I didn't know at first since he had a different IP but he uses the same IP near the end of the Thread
>>2205600QM confirmed to be the very first Hanazawa fag. Hes playing a very deep game.
Alright, we need to take mental stock of where we're at with who so as to not lose track of what needs doing:Hanazawa: Girlfriend, currently in a bit of a spat due to not telling her about our getting bullied issues. Need to resolve that.Nakamura Eiji: Still cool, still oblivious.Nakahara Fumi: Rival, need to throw down with her one day just to vent some force aggression and maybe learn some rad moves. ...I've been playing Yakuza a lot, sue me.Kobayashi Mariko (Rich Ojou): In an 'alliance', but we need to hash out details somehow. Need to meet with her soon, see if we can't plan out a way to take advantage of her assets. May also need to (once again) clarify the fact that we have no particular overriding desire to get in her way of gaining Eiji as a boyfriend should it come down to it.Fujibayashi Rinko: Red flags fucking everywhere on this bitch. Maybe I'm paranoid. Otherwise, no particular interaction, so nothing to say here.Tezuka Rei: In an alliance with. Has nominally given up on Eiji in order to see her old friend Hikaru Ryou in a more mentally safe space. Unknown if those are her true intentions or not, or if they're merely a side goal, but either way we're in accord and can at the very least expect little/no direct hostility from her.Hikaru Ryou: Troubled ally whom it has been made clear considers romantic love a substitute for personal self-affirmation and self-esteem. Current goal is to readjust these values so that she no longer considers a romantic love interest necessary to make herself feel of worth.Glasses Girl (I'm sorry, I forget her name and can't find where she says it): Full-fledged backer at the other school, currently assisting in warding off rumors on that front. (We really should maybe try to start writing that book. Or at least make it a short story. It'd be good to permanently mark down our thoughts on this whole thing.)Anyway, if I'm missing anything or otherwise misinterpreted something, feel free to correct it.
>>2205618I don't think Hanazawa is angry at us over the bullying. Judging by what her brother asked, it's more likely she's miffed over Hikaru's manstealing attempt and our reaction to it.We'll need to clear the waters first thing next thread.
>>2205620Aye, either way we need to talk to her- although what about IS a bit muddy at this point, I think.
>>2205618>...I've been playing Yakuza a lot, sue me.So you're saying we make Nakahara our Majima?
>>2205624I mean, I don't think we need her popping out of manhole covers, but...
>>2205626But imagine her disguised as a cabaret girl!
>>2205799And the more we fight her the more absurd the encounters get until it's just one giant clusterfuck
>>2205799>>2205626>>2205624Actually now that I think about it since we would be the ones hunting her down does that make US Majima?
>>2206175>>2205825>>2205799>>2205624>>2205626Guys, Nakahara is Eiji, the MC. Hanazawa Mayumi is /ourgirl/. I think all of you got your names wrong. Are we going fuck Hanazawa in her own room for the second fuck, while the door is locked and her brother is hearing every little bit of it but can't do shit?
>>2208202No. We're going to fuck her in his room.
>>2208232We really should buy some condoms soon
>>2208232YESFUCKING THIS>>2208253>expecting girls to become pregnant in a harem animeShe'll WISH that "now I'm filled with you" line was a joke, after we're done with her.
>>2208275I mean it's only a Harem Anime for the Main Cast. For everybody else real life logic should apply
>>2208284I guess BSG can be the judge of that when the time comes.
>>2208377It might still be better to be prepared even though Mayami might not want to do it for a while because she's mad. I mean we ARE still in high school and a pregnancy is the last thing we need piled onto all the shit we have to deal with already.
>>2208386Welp, I guess we gotta stop by a drugstore during freetime in one of these sessions. Maybe also pick up some general meds just in case. Gee this is getting too much like real life now isn't it?
>>2208396Eh, just means good things will happen when alone.
Running in an hour
>>2213028cool shitalso thoughts on the discussion about Hanazawa and safe sex?
>>2213117safe sex = best sex. dont be silly, wrap your willy
>>2213230We really need to take her out on a date or at least make her dinner in the weekend after work. Ken-Kun's been neglecting Mayami recently even though they've just become official a few days ago.
Yukio stands silent, waiting for your reply. The voices from inside Hanazawa's room echo in the quiet corridor. The class rep's cheerful voice, and Nakamura Eiji's prompt straight man replies. They're your friends, or at least you'd like to think so.And now your girlfriend's brother has asked you to crush one of them."She's your sister's friend, Yukio. As well as mine.""I'm aware.""And yet you're asking me to...?"He nods. "Crush her. Destroy her if you really care about my sister."You pause. His serious demeanor has not changed at all."And why would I do that?""I'm not an idiot. I know who she really is. She's the man stealer, right?">No she isn't. Stop believing in stupid rumors.>You calling her that is not helping.>So what if she is?>I get it. I'll do what you ask.>Write in

>>2213252>>You calling her that is not helping.We know the dangers she poses, we are already trying to fix her dude, lay off.
>>2213252"She's just in a bad place right now. Your sister and I are already working together to help her."He shakes his head. "You don't understand, Yamada-senpai. That's just neechan being a kind person. You and her cannot help Hikaru-senpai.""And what makes you think that?"He cocks his neck back at the room. "If *he* can't, what makes you think you can?"You tense up. "What do you know about Nakamura Eiji?""It's obvious that Hikaru-senpai likes him. Everyone knows they've been together since middle school. And if he can't fix her after all that, what makes you think you can?"He shrugs and shakes his head. "There's only one option, Yamada-senpai. You have to crush her. Make her feel the pain that she has inflicted on other people. I know she's your friend, senpai, but do you care for her more than you do my sister?">I care for my friend. I will not sacrifice one for the other.>I care for your sister. What do you have in mind?>Write in.
>>2213312>What's your obsession with hurting people? First you wanna fight me pretending to be your sister's Boyfriend, now you want me to hurt someone else because of what you heard second or third hand. I'm not doing anything you ask me since I don't have anything I need to prove to you.

Everybody else has put her on a pedestal so she's basically untouchable to them. What she needs are friends that can show her she doesn't need romantic love to be happy. People she can Really on.
>>2213312You also do realize that the kid is as dense as a sack of rocks right?Look, I get it your protective of your sister that's admirable, but you wind as a control freak when your trying to dictate who should be friends for her because there might be trouble down the road. You need to grow up and learn that not everyone is perfect, I know I'm not.We all have faults, it's learning to deal with them and how we deal with that defines us.

>>2213312>Your sister is more important to me than the class rep, and that's exactly why I will neither betray her, nor will I hurt any of her friends. Your own attempt to solve a problem with violence failed miserably only a few hours ago, but you don't look like you've learned the lesson.

>>2213312"Yukio..." the young boy starts to irritate you. "What's your obsession with hurting people? First you fight me pretending to be your sister's boyfriend, now you want me to hurt someone else because of what you heard second or third hand. I'm not doing anything you ask me. I don't have anything I need to prove to you."He stays quiet. Then in the end, he shakes his head."You don't deserve my sister.""Wha--""I don't like hurting people." He looks at you with strong derision. "But it's how far I'm willing to go to protect my sister. Seeing you not willing to do the same is pathetic."He walks away, and before passing you, says something."She's your friend, Yamada-senpai, so you know Hikaru-senpai better than I do. But I know my sister better than you."And she deserves better than idealistic cowards who won't choose.">cont'd
>>2213416What a fucking brat
>>2213416Just throw him down the steps. Seriously.
>>2213432Don't stoop to his level
>>2213416Yukio disappeared before you could say anything else. You make your way down the stairs and try to find the kitchen.You spot Hanazawa sitting down on the table, staring out at the window. The electric kettle is heating up some water, letting out steam at its spout.You knock at the doorway. "Hanazawa?"She looks towards you, a bit surprised, but upon seeing you she relaxes. "Yamada-kun.""Need any help?""I'm just waiting for the water. I'll bring the tea up in a minute."The atmosphere is awkward. She's asked to not talk today, but that was before everything else happened."Could I wait with you?""...Mm."She nods, and you take the seat opposite hers.What do you talk about?>Her brother>The events in the classroom>Hikaru Ryou>Keep silent and enjoy each other's company>Write in

for some reason, ive been seeing a lot of "Mayami"s. It's Mayumi.
>>2213451>The events in the classroom>Hikaru RyouTell her everything that happened. Then reaffirm we're with her no matter what.
>>2213451>The events in the classroomThe real reason we're here, and what probably got us here in the first place.On a side note, fuck Yukio, his militant ass mindset ain't gonna get him anything but estranged from his family for being violent and getting his assbeat for thinkin he's tough shit. Kid is borderline deliquent as is.
>>2213451>The events in the classroom
>>2213451>>Keep silent and enjoy each other's companyMaybe even go in for some hand holding
>>2213466I mean, it proves how blind he is, he's basically saying he wouldn't have gotten mad if we'd beaten him bloody and raw back there because, hey, we're stronger, so we must be right.

I'm counting majority>The events in the classroomWriting.
>>2213451"Look, Hanazawa...about the events earlier...in the classroom."She's looking at the table, drawing circles in the cloth."...What about it?""Well...I think you've realized what's been going on already.""...Yeah. So?""So...I'm sorry.""Why are you apologizing?""Because I should have told you. You deserved to know.""Not really," she sighs, ragged. "I'm not the one getting called mean names, or being pelted with papers, or who knows what else, right?" She shakes her head. Her eyes are watering. "It's just my boyfriend, right?""Hanazawa...""Why didn't you tell me? We're a team, right? You, me, class rep...we agreed right? Why didn't you tell me what's been going on then?""It's..." Chest heavy, you stumble with your words. "I was just trying to protect you.""If it ends with you bearing the pain on your own, then I don't want it."She wipes her eyes before any tears flow."Yamada...no, Ken-kun...you're really important to me. I'm not asking you to bare everything to me, but...I just want to be there whatever you're going through, good times or bad. We're a team. Please don't bear everything yourself."She fiddles with the edge of the table cloth."It doesn't have to be me either," she whispers. "As long as you're not alone...even if..."You stand up from the table and sit down beside her. You grab both sides of her cheek, and kiss her on the forehead."I'm sorry, Mayumi.""...Mm."She puts her head on your chest, and you embrace her.The kettle boils, the shrill whistle filling the room.>cont'd
>>2213568You help Hanazawa in bringing up the tea tray."Took you two long enough," Hikaru says, grinning.Both of you apologize, and serve tea cakes and drinks.The chat between you four is pretty random and not really about anything, however it's light and happy.You catch Hanazawa smiling and giggling to another comedy duo act by the tsundere class rep and the idiot Eiji. Your heart is filled with warm feelings.Underneath the table, you stretch out your hand to grasp hers.She squeezes back, and entwines her fingers with yours. They're small, and soft, and smooth.------"Take care, class rep, Nakamura-kun, Yamada-kun," Hanazawa sees the three of you out the doorway, waving.The three of you wave back, and exit the Hanazawa property. You never caught a glimpse of Yukio again.You walk behind the two, while Ryou engages Eiji with idle chatter, when she looks back."By the way, Ken-kun, could I talk to you for a bit?""Now?""Yeah. Just the two of us, if that's alright?">Sure, what is it?>Make up an excuse and escape
>>2213611>Make up an excuse and escapeGotta avoid Being mind-controlled.
>>2213611>Sure, what is it?
>>2213611>>Make up an excuse and escape
>>2213611>Make up an excuse and escapeBail. BAIL!
>>2213611>I I would, but I've got to get home before my mom rips me apart again. I'll catch you at school and we can talk then, okay?
>>2213611>>Make up an excuse and escapeOhh shit I thought it was Eiji. Fucking BAIL NOW
>>2213611>Can you call me later instead? I gotta get home to help for once.
We don't want to make it obvious that we're trying to avoid her. If we meet up at school, that gives us an opportunity to have someone in the general vicinity, should everything go right.
>>2213611"I'd love to, but it's getting pretty dark...my mom is a stickler for this kinds of things.""Oh?""Yeah...and you're a girl, class rep. You need to get home early, you might anger your parents.""Uh, yeah. You're right.""So, see you when you get back to school?"She looks at Eiji, then back at you, then shrugs and smiles."Sure. I think I'll be back by next week. See you then?""Yep. See you."You part in a corner. You wave as you watch the two of them walk down the road.But before you turned to head home yourself...You catch Nakamura Eiji glancing at you.-------Night time.

"That's right, Hanazawa might ask me about that novel any day now..."You stand up from your bed and head to your table."...where am I going to write it though..."You almost forgot you don't have a laptop. A laptop would mean your document will be more secure, not to mention you could do other things like browse the internet with it. You'll have to work and save up for it though."This'll do for now, I guess."You pull out a spare notebook and bring out your mechanical pencil.You open to the first, empty page, and write...Er, what should your novel be about?>An exact replica of everything that has happened so far.>A story loosely based on Nakamura Eiji's harem>An allegory of your own story, in the shape of a parable>An entirely different, original story

We can write the replica of our story later, when we actually know how it ends.
>>2213782We really should take a pen name though if we finish. It'll give us another chance to be liked by the collective and adds so much more personality to us.
>>2213782>>An entirely different, original storypissing against the tide, but this seems like the best way to take a genuine break from the constant shittery thrown at us.
You decide to base the story of your own, and tell it in the style of a parable."Hmm..."You find the task hard and arduous. You're not much of a writer in this life, nor in the past you think.You scribble some down, before giving up and just heading to bed.It'll come to you eventually, you think, as your vision fades and you head to sleep...-------The jogging session the next day was quiet and normal, though ocassionally you'd catch Murakami Saya glancing at you.You asked her what is it, but she shakes her head.'It's probably nothing,' were her words.Your morning route ends with no other special events. You head home and get into your uniform.As you exit your house, you see Tokomichi Endou zoom past on his bicycle. You've never really interacted with him, is that something you should consider in the future?You leave the house and go on your way to the school.The stares today are...pretty intense. The air is full of tension. All the gazes are on you now. You feel like something big is going on.You arrive at the lockers. Carefully, you open the door, expecting something bad...But, nothing. Not even the usual rubbish, or missing shoe.Just a single note, on top of your pair of indoor slippers.>"Back of School. NOW."It's a different hand writing.

>>2213911>>Follow the note"Look at me, I'm so original, writing a vaguely threatening note stuffed into your locker, cuz THAT hasn't been done to death"The Collective is very original and unique, guys.
>>2213911You follow the note.In the back of the school is an angry Kobayashi Mariko, stomping her foot. On the ground, you also spot a pile of rubbish, wrapped together in a plastic bag."You really should clean your locker, Yamada Ken." She says, blowing away a loose strand of silver hair. "But really. I shouldn't be surprised. You're already careless enough as it is, how could I expect you to at least be a tidy person?" She seems agitated. Her tongue's even sharper than normal for an ojou.You ignore her insults for now. "Thanks for that. But why did you call me?""Why? Why?! Look at this, Yamada-kun, then tell me why!"She pulls out her phone, swipes down, and shows the screen to you.It's a picture of the scene from yesterday. Hanazawa is helping Yukio up, while Ryou is holding you back. Eiji looks barely visible from this angle."You beat up an underclassman? And that idiot class rep had to hold you back?!""T-That isn't what happened at all!"You explained what happened to Kobayashi, but she just gets more and more angry the more you explain it."Yamada-kun. You and the class rep are absolute morons.""...What?""You're already in hot water as it is! -Everyone- has an agenda against you! Of course they're going to twist the narrative to suit their needs. Why didn't you avoid the conflict?""I...""You didn't have to push the kid down. Hanazawa's brother might be a tall guy, but you're still the upperclassman. And the class rep being there did not help at all."She types something on her phone, her nails clacking on the screen hard."She asks for my help then goes on to do this...I'll have a word with her about this, but that'll have to wait. I don't know what they're going to do."She marches away, leaving you behind."Yamada-kun, do you have friends in your class?""Er, yes. Why?""Get them to leave 2-1. And make sure they're gone for a good, long, while.">cont'd
>>2213996>More stuff to make us look bad for the menials, that wasn't our fault nor was what really happened.Being Yamada really is suffering.
This is legitimately retarded. Like, it's not even fun anymore, it's just a dude getting fucked over by the mob and everyone's either in on it or doesn't have the balls to oppose them.Shit, you basically have the choice of 'be a delinquent' or 'be a member of the schoolyard Yakuza' if you want any peace in your life.
>>2213996You arrive back in the classroom. Your classmates are quiet. Eerily so."Oh?"You make your way to your seat. Hanazawa's already there fixing her things."Yamada-kun. Good morning.""...Good morning, Hanazawa.""Ohhhhhh?"She looks at you, a bit confused. "Is there something wrong, Yamada-kun?""It's--""OOOOOOHHHHHHHH!"Tokomichi suddenly stands up, his mouth hanging open, while holding a piece of yellowed paper."Endou?" Nakamura Eiji is surprised by the sudden outburst of his seatmate."Nakamura-dono! Rei-dono! I have discovered an ultra rare map from the Edo period under my table! How come I've never seen this before...? Well, whatever! Nakamura-dono, this is a treasure map!""Ehhhh?!" Even Eiji looks surprised at his friend's revelation."Indeed! It says this hill used to be a fort by one of the great generals, and that only three brave explorers should be able to find it!""...That's quite a specific number...""Do not doubt the treasure map, Nakamura-dono! It must be a treasure that could only be found through the power of friendship!"He stands up from his seat and grabs the wrists of Tezuka and Nakamura."Let us make haste! Who knows how many copies of this map exists out there? They could be looking to steal -our- treasure under our noses at this very moment! Guwooooooh!"With a strange battle cry, Tokomichi exits the room with Eiji and Tezuka in tow.But before they disappear through the doorway,Tezuka Rei glances at you.At that point you understood. This is Kobayashi's scheme to not involve those three. She was the one that planted the map, knowing that Tokomichi will drag both of them into some silly goose chase. So they'll be going off into some silly spin off plot...While the real thing occurs here.You feel people coming closer. You glance at Hanazawa."Yamada-kun? What's going on?">Tell her.>No time. Get her out now.
>>2214072>Tell her.>Can you fight?
>>2214072>>Tell her.But take her some place private for the inevitable argument
Brace yourselves, folks, it's about to get River City up in here.
>>2214091Anyone have any theme music for the biggest fight of the quest so far?
>>2214129https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACUhXbJyz3o ?I think the lyrics even fit, kinda.
Speaking of Yakuza music, we need to remember that fuck everything, under this situation, we NEED to fight like that. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING is off the table. Everything is a weapon- including the fucking table. We spit, we claw, we nutshot, we bite, whatever keeps us fucking breathing regular, because these people are insane and want to do serious bodily harm to us.
>>2214072>Tell her.The only issue I see is the repercussions we're going to get from this fight. Even if it was in self-defense, the entire Collective is just going to say that we started the fight. They'll fuck us over no matter what.
>>2214072"Remember yesterday? There seems to be some sort of misunderstanding. Someone made it to look like I beat Yukio up.""What? But Yukio already told me--""Yeah." You sigh. "But who will believe the ass-kisser, right?""They'll listen to Yukio!"You smile. You know full well that the only reason he said everything yesterday was for his big sis. No way will he speak out for you."Nevermind that. For now, I need you to--"The door slides open.Too late.A couple of girls approach Hanazawa."Hanazawa-chan, stay over here...""Mayumi-chan, over here, over here..."They pull Hanazawa away from you. She looks baffled.From the door enters three upperclassmen. They sport uniforms with chains on their belts, and hair dyed bright colors. Delinquents.They walk to where you are, and stare down at you. They're even bigger than Yukio."You know," the guy in front of you starts. His breath stinks of cigarettes. "Upperclassmen beating their kouhais? I find that thing despicable."He then lets fly a hook.You try to dodge, but the two other upperclassmen hold you by the arms."Gh--!""No!" You hear Hanazawa shout out.You spit, blood forming in your mouth from a split lip."Stop it!" Hanazawa's screaming. She's hysterical."Can someone shut that bitch up?!" Shouts the guy who punched you. The girls clamor, trying to cover her mouth and pull her away.Your dad has trained you to fight bigger oponnents. But against a group...You try to struggle. You flail, kicking your table and chair away. But the two senpais have an iron grip on your arms. And the main guy is too far away for you to even hit."Get him out of here," he says. "Teacher's on our side, but we need to be quick."You get dragged out of the classroom.>cont'd
This isn't even entertaining anymore. Kinda want to request a fade to black.
>>2214174Personally, I'm still enjoying this quite a bit.
>>2214169>Teacher's on our sideOh,FUCK this gay earth and everyone on itExcept Hanazawa.
>>2214175This is the kinda shit that causes serial killings, is all. I'm seriously considering my next write in to be 'find a knife'.
>>2214174Why.You've made your bed, now lie in it.
>>2214180Me? I've been trying to keep things low-key sometimes, but I've had to ride the tide with most everyone else for a large part of it.
>>2214177If all else fails, we can team up with the delinquent girl who I honestly expect to show up today to save our ass, if my genre knowledge is right. It'll ruin our reputation, but hey, it can't get worse than things already are.Of course, this will mean that Hanazawa won't be able to stay with us, or else she'd get caught in the crossfire of being associated with a gosamuri delinquent.
>>2214183...Okay, that made me laugh. I needed that. Thank you.
>>2214182I mean by voting "Tell her" despite the looming threat.
>>2214186Oh, that? Hand to heart, I was under the impression we'd get beaten up either way- I thought that option was 'get HER out', not 'let's both haul ass'.
>>2214186>>2214188And I get the feeling a lot of other voters thought similarly.
>>2214177Yeah but I feel like the collective makes for a pretty cool challenge in between the various "bosses" that are the main and sub characters, and I'm still enjoying learning more about the level of power they wield and what exactly are the triggers that set them off. There's gotta be a way to clear the air, we just gotta figure out what it is, or at least figure out how to minimize their damage in between dealing with the important characters.
>>2214169This is why you fucking should've worked on Hand to hand, not fucking a book. Whats more looming constant ass kicking or books?
>>2214191I no longer think there IS a way to clear the air; they'll believe what they want to believe.
>>2214192Alright fair enough anon, we live through this and I promise to vote for every chance to train we get.
>>2214169We could have fucking been Kenshiro, but you faggots decided to ignore the COMPLETELY OBVIOUS FLAG that we were heading into an asskicking with out hands tied.
>>2214195We're gonna live through this but the point is, the fucking flag was there and people are now bitching 'oh boo, we're getting our ass beat'
>>2214196I don't think we would've gotten THAT strong in a night.But seriously, I'm pissed too, so I apologize. You call it obvious, but I guess I'm blind.
>>2214195yeah I think this a good enough reason to put the book on hold
>>2214169"Geh--!"They throw you against a wall in the back of the school. The three of them stand in front of you, cracking their knuckles. One of them goes over and picks something from the corner of the wall. Iron pipes.You stand up, using the wall to assist you, and go to a stance. You're not going to go down without a fight."Don't bother, Yamada." A voice calls out to you. A girl's.The three of them split apart to reveal Nakahara Fumi, standing there."What did you do this time, city shit?" She says, grinning."Nakahara...""Y'know, they paid me really nicely to make your face unrecognizable for a bit. And a little extra for a limp leg."You smile, despite everything. "I don't suppose you could call it off? Or a one vs one, for old time's sake?"She smiles too while swinging her nailed bat. "No can do. Business is business. Unless you got cash on hand?""I'm actually broke.""Too bad."The three guys pass each other the pipes. Nakahara approaches you, bat ready."You ready?""...Yeah."She grins, and laughs. "Really? Ha! That's too bad."And then she turns around and calls them off."Wha...?"The three upperclassmen walk away, pipes in tow. As they turn the corner, they part...And out comes Hanazawa, still looking a bit dazed, grasping at her phone.Nakahara puts an arm around you and shakes her head."You got yourself a keeper, Yamada. Your girl's more loaded than a bank."(TO BE CONT'D)
Anons making bad decisions, all's right with the world.
>>2214224PUNCH HER IN THE FUCKING TITTIES. THIS ISN'T RIGHT.However, I do applaude the business sense.
>>2214224Well at least being honest with Mayumi paid off
Okay, so. Basically, no one has any goddamn sense here. Even the teachers are against us. Meaning, much as I hate to say we we need to get vicious.
>>2214224What day is it? Near the weekend?
This aint ROMCOM. This is fucking yakuza street. Now that we know she's a business woman, we got ourselves an 'opportunity'.I am willing to go evil mastermind route, dismantling the collective one by one with blood in their shirt
>>2214224Well, I was wrong, but atleast my prediction that the delinquent would show up was correct. Didn't think Mayumi would be the showstopper though.
>>2214254Agreed. This is no time for games.People are going to die, now.
I swer to god that the only one that can prevent this happening is mom IF she fucking explained what [Bad Ending] is....Shouldnt have blamed her now that the road is set. Now is time for survival and counterattack.
>>221427110/10 Yukio a shit confirmed
>>2214272Christ. Cant believe i feel enough rage to fuck sentences. Kudos to you qm. It was beautiful
>>2214285...How do you fuck sentences?
>>2214224.....ok fuck this shit, we really need to get a taser or something because the level these kids are willing to go is fucking terrifying. Why haven’t we at least got locks yet?
>>2214293Cause it's been like a day and we only just got a part time job.
>>2214293Do they sell those normally in Japan? We need some kind of concealable weapon.
We got to fuck the teacher up for this somehow.If not physically then getting him fired for inappropriate relations with an unwilling student.
>>2214296At this point we might as well fuckin open carry a weapon since the teachers are against us as well.
>>2214295Considering our girlfriend apparently has a lot of money, and she just saw what was about to happen to us, I think she'll be willing to loan us a bit for protective purposes.>>2214304Basically. School's pretty much a battleground at this point.>>2214300By all accounts, the teachers and faculty are under the collective's thumb, too. No one will listen. Gonna have to make some blood flow.
Also, let's be frank about this- chances are we're going to get kicked out and probably fail the quest, but at this point I don't think it's worth it anymore. Everyone's insane and the rules of reality are so screwed up I'd rather have the sweet nothing of oblivion.
>>2214316Well the collective isn't part of the win conditions in any way as far as I can tell, so they're kinda free game.
>>2214320Well, I mean if we get kicked out and imprisoned for assault and murder, then we can't very well help anyone get happiness, can we? But at the same time, FUCK getting brutalized daily for this.
>>2214308We have a job, and maybe this is a bit irrational but it feel kind of pathetic to ask for a hand out from her, especially since she just saved us.
We need to leave a spy camera around or something so we know whos fucking with us and we can deal and punish them after school.Do that enough and the fucks will stop eventually.Ambush and strike without mercy like they tried with these fucking wanabee mercs.
>>2214329Problem with that is they have freedom of movement we don't. Chances are as soon as they figure out or even suspect we're retaliating, they can LITERALLY just walk into the classroom, ask the teacher to turn away for a couple minutes, and put us in traction. They have DRASTICALLY more power than us, so we need to do something to shock them into pausing for a bit, then taking full advantage.
>>2214327This is literally a matter of survival; everything's fair game. Take every advantage we have.
>>2214336We need to find out who the leaders of the collective are and undermine them or get them going at each other instead of us, I presume it's most likely people at the top of the fanclubs so I'd prioritize them.
Guys I think the clear answer is pretty.obviously not to continue escalating things. Getting a weapon is not a good idea.Learning to fight would still be useful, but maybe something.more like learning how to block and redirect attacks without actually trying to deal damage back would be best.If we just sit there and take it we'll go insane and get beaten down, but if we fight back we end up having to either take drastic action or end up getting ganged up on later. We need to be able to nullify attacks coming to us without actually threatening or counter attacking. Peaceful yet firm resistance should lower their rage, as they find attacking us pointless but aren't able to pull up any evidence of wrongdoing to rally everyone else into a rage.We also gotta get info on all the main characters so that we'll know what might trigger a "becoming a background mob" route like the whole Manstealer Victim thing that nearly happened, otherwise it's dangerous to interact too much with another one of the harem members.
>>2214334I'm honestly down for finding out who ordered the hit on us and dealing with them ourselves. Might be hard to extract that info from Nakahara, but it might be worth a shot.
That said, there's still another way out, I think. It'll still end with us 'losing' the quest, but again, I don't give a shit.Come clean. To the harem, to Eiji, to everyone. We'll get erased, but fuck it at this point. This place is a madhouse anyway.
>>2214342She seems to respond well to money, we could probably use that when/if we get it to have her supply us with info.
>>2214341The problem is we aren't the ones escalating shite, the collective is, and they're gonna keep doing it unless we do something first. This defensive fighting BS just ain't gonna cut it.
>>2214341Before this situation, I'd have agreed with you, but it's very clear the collective is set in its opinion and ways. They'll just keep ramping things up until we break physically or mentally.
We could visit the Club again and just take pictures of us kissing all the girls and spread that shit to the mobs like wildfire. That'll shake something from the tree
Dam all this rage is delicious. Also the only way to go now is going full keikkaku and dig dirt or create some dirt about the teachers and other classmates. We will become the school hidden evil. But instead in focusing i destroying the MC we will destroy the mob
>>2214374You mean like literally get us killed?
>>2214374nah that's a shit plan, we'd get maybe 2 girls before we got our asses beat and thrown out then our relationship with Hanazawa gets shit then we die.
>>2214374It would but would you really cheat on our waifu
>>2214386Fuck yeahWe could just take a lot of pictures and photoshop that shit.Just replace us with the object of the harems affections in the photos.
>>2214378I like this idea but the only way I see it working is with Kei's help but yeah we really do need to do something about this.
>>2214390>Cheating on Waifu who just saved our ass from Extreme Facial Remaking and a broken leg.
I say we go full Punisher on the Collective and all Collective sympathizers.
>>2214396Im sure her brother would be there to "comfort" her.
>>2214402Oh you know he would, the lil incest monkey.
Maybe we should make an evidence folder of everything the collective has done to us, we could probably use it for something, take pictures of all our stuff they mess up.No idea what we'd use it for though.
>>2214412We anonymously give it to Eiji and even though we aren't that close because he's a nice guy he'll get mad at the collective?It might backfire though
>>2214419Actually that doesn't sound like too bad an idea. We'd literally be getting God mad at the collective.
I too am of a chaos mentality when it comes to games, and this is looking like we cannot go the anime route of "Im sorry pls forgive me, collective-kun"The ONLY way I know of getting out of this is without "rocks fall, everyone dies" mode is sticking by the main harem, or Edgy himself.Because as you can see, they wont do shit with any of them around.For now.
So we're all in agreement to postpone helping the main characters until the collective is dealt with one way or another right?I personally think going the blackmail route sounds pretty good since we're so forgettable it shouldn't be hard to sneak around. We should ask our dad for super training though.
>>2214419Im leaning towards this.Why not just tell him though, too naive to believe us?Also, did that rich cunt know this was gonna happen and only gave us a vague as fuck warning?fuck that, definetly tell eiji everything
>>2214419Making the MC get turned against his on fans. Dam this sunddely became extreme meta. Grab the evidence make Hanazawa record it and send anynomously to eiji let the circus get burned as he slowly dig the darkness in the school
>>2214431We need undeniable proof because Eiji is literally a Bonobo, but once we have it, we damn every member of the collective simultaneously. The only problem is the Harem themselves might intervene so we probably can't tell them our plan.
>>2214431Because then we'd be labeled a snitch and have our shit kicked in when he's not looking.Telling him anonymously might get them off our backs for enough time to find dirt and train. Plus since we DID befriend a few people they might not target us immediately
>>2214431Nah Eiji is to nice. He will try to brifriend and make everything be friends. We need to take thse fuckers obers and asserts ourselfs as top dog.
I don't even know what's going on anymore. But going with chaos route: blow up the school when it's empty, can't go to school when school is blown up. 200iq right here ; ^)
>>2214442I vote chaos route. cause chaos blow up the collective chances dig dirt on teachers make us the shadow mind behind the school. Time to take over the collective.
>>2214444>inb4 QM just shuts it all down with random [Bad End]nice quads tho.
>>2214448The worlds objective is to give the girls and the MC the good end. Taking over the collective would be a easier way to achieve that goal
I'm REALLY against a chaos route, I'm still pretty firmly on the "we need to create as few waves as possible outsidr of just.living our lives. No fights, no rudeness or unfair play." Join the soccer team, try to make friends, get other.minor and Sub Characters we can rely on, maybe befriend our neighbor who is friends with Eiji. We aren't gonna win by trying to flip everything over, I feel that the same rules of the world that stopped us before when trying to just blurt out the class rep's feelings for Eiji will stop us there too, and our shady behavior will only bite us in the butt. We need to go full on order route. Endure until we win over enough people and enough time passes for even the collective to chill out.At the same time, we can't stop our goals towards helping the characters find happiness, as I feel that this collective isn't just a group of thugs butthurt about Eiji's harem, I think we're dealing with a [Collective], something that's trying to do all it can to disrupt the focus of the one entity that can mess up the status quo: Us.
>>2214460No, That's not happening.As much as I'd love to vote for the full pacifist Leave me alone and let me do my own thing route we've been doing that and it didn't work. Chaos route might be too much but we need to deal with the collective One Way or The Other.
>>2214457That's not the world's objective, that's our objective.I think the world's goal was to let Eiji live his harem anime fantasy life, but I don't think the world itself wants an ending, hence why things were static for so long, and why our brother is putting pressure on us for being able to change it.
>>2214460Not happening. Time to take actio no more mister nice guy.The colective is most likely what is putting the man eater nickname in the pres reputation. They need to fall to make her happy.
>>2214460I think the fact of the matter is no matter what we do there is inevitably going to be someone or something trying to stop us from just being us, and quite frankly this bullshit pacifist isn't going to work.It didn't work before, it ain't workin now, it won't work later. Instead we gotta make change ourselves, cause noone else is gonna do it for us, at least not in a way that benefits us for sure.
>>2214466And the best way to make our goal to be reacheble is by taking the collectivy. Or are you saying it wouldn't be easier to reach the True end with us puppetering the mobs?
>>2214471Except Hanazawa. She already did much to us then anyone else in this world.Also now that she knows about the bully and she stoped our ass from being kicked she just became a target to.
>>2214477We still had to reach out to her in the beginning, so my point still stands, we gotta do stuff and not just pacifist stuff.Also Mayumi best waifu.
>>2214460>About to get our shit pushed in>Saved because GF gave away stacks>No, lets just sit back and take it guysLiteral pussy mode doesnt work anymore.In every bully anime, when dealing with irrational assholes, the pussy way only gets you hurt more and maybe, just maybe, way down the line they stop.We dont have that kind of time, and I dont have that kind of patience. Plus, now mayumi is gonna get targeted.I dont know about you, but going after my girlfriend is fighting territory
>>2214480Agreed>>2214484We can't be completely sure about that but if they hurt her then even the class rep would cover for us if we beat the shit out of themWe need to make our dad understand how serious this situation's become. Having somebody to fight for is the beginning of a shonen
>>2214480I agree time to drop the pacifist and start the counter attack. We are out of the rules anyway aren't we? Time to behabe like a real cheater.
>>2214474I don't think this world will let us puppet master the mobs, and trying will only backfire.It would seem however that the general consensus is against me, which is fine. I genuinely don't believe that anything good will come from trying to manipulate the mobs or trying to beat them down, but I will hope that I'm wrong, and that everyone's efforts are met with success.
>>2214506I say fuck the world.
We should have been beaten to a pulp. We should be in hospital right now, rushed in by ambulance and with a 20-gauge IV stuck in our arm, an intubation tube down our throat, and a catheter stuck down our urethra. We should be half-dead; yet here we are.Something else outside this universe intervened on our behalf. Not like DM Fiat; I'm not looking at it like that. There's some in-universe meta guiding force that seems to give us their favor, and is changing events to allow us to persist. To what end, though? Too many questions, not enough answers.In more immediate terms, however, this must be a hard lesson to learn that we need to polish up on self-defense. I wouldn't say we should carry a knife (though to be truthful it doesn't hurt to sling around a Buck 110 or a Douk-Douk or another folder in our pocket), but maybe learn a martial arts club or something. Get fit, carry a roll of coins in our pocket--we gotta be prepared for whenever these motherfuckers wanna throw hands with us.
>>2214516It's name is Hanazawa Mayumi
>>2214501If we have to start beating people up, I personally say we start with one of the upperclassmen who came.Get him alone, beat his shit down.I SAY WE GO HOLYLAND ON THESE NIGGAS.(if you guys havent read holyland, I swear on me mum)
>>2214516Well acording to our brother we are the meta character. Time to behave like one too.
>>2214516Yeah gonna have to agree with the guy two posts above me. We really lucked out on Mayumi and I want to take her on a date just once before we go full recluse to train with our dad. She'll understand if we go missing to go on some super intense montage training
>>2214523My niggaWe definetly need to fight.Who gives a fuck if we become a pariah, it'd be a pariah from these insane fucks All we need is a waifu.Also, Rich bitch ain't winning this harem bowl, fuck that cunt
>>2214532If we go recluse we need to keep her safe. Make pres keep a eye into her or fuck it even ask our couch to do it for us.
>>2214523>>2214535We can't roll hard on these motherfuckers on our lonesome. Unless you wanna genre shift this harem anime into some shonen territory hard way, we're gonna need allies. That being said, we need Nakahara on our side--her being a hired gun makes her more a liability than an asset currently.Many hands make light work--and for our task we're gonna need quite a few pairs of hands if we wish to effect any kind of change.
>>2214538Ask her brother? I know it sounds like a bad idea but he loves her more than he hates us and I'm sure he'd be willing to go full Chaos route if they even touch her
>>2214544We've got Tezuka on our side as well as Ryou and supposedly the Ojou, although the last one is tenuous atm as far as i can tell. Who else we need to recruit/ally with? we need a list.
>>2214544I know we camt, but it's gonna be the start>>2214546That seems like it'd be possible, but I have a feeling he wouldnt jump completely into it with us.
>>2214544We'd need to train first. Our dad used to be a Main Character or at least a high rank shonen character before he settled down. Plus you know the goofy nice guys are always secretly incredibly bad ass in anime
>>2214546He's a underclassmen. He can't do shit.
>>2214554We could recruit glasses dude, since he's in close while not being a MC. He seems pretty chill as well, if a bit of a spaz.
I won't be surprised if the "young brother" was the one who arranged the whole show
Ogai can probably become our ally as well since he seemed pretty set on gettin us on the soccer team, so we might get even more buddies that way.
>>2214562Actually, now that I think about it, he could probably help train us, physically not fighting wise.but first we should gauge if he truly isnt with the collective or not.
>>2214554He doesn't have to. We don't need to be friends or even be on good terms. If he thinks his sister's in danger he'll fight like he always does.>>2214556Nobody else to protect Mayumi if we go on an extended vacation other than MAYBE Tokomichi or who ever our neighbor is. We barely know him but he seems like a stereotypical dumb nice guy. Maybe the class rep? Having her protect Mayumi might endanger out Waifu to MC shenanigans
>>2214560His ass is definitely involved, even if he stood by and did nothing, he's the reason we're here in the first place.As far as I'm concerned he's on the shitlist but in an area where he can't be touched atm. AND you can bet he won't let us live down the fact that Mayumi had to pay money to save us, even though he put us in that spot in the first place.We also need to figure out who the mystery camera person is that keeps taking these pictures that put us in a bad light.
>guess main goal should be.>get to soccer team>acquire allies and use the team as a way to avoid the mobs>make hardcore trainning with dad while working to get money to buy the deliquebts out of our ass as we train>Make dad trainning mixed with siccer practice to extra gains
>>2214568>Live a normal happy life by day>Beat the shit out of Delinquents by night
>>2214553A martial arts club comes to mind, though one has yet to show its head around the campus. Otherwise as it stands there isn't exactly much of a cast to expound upon or build social links with. There a metal shop or something like an Ace Hardware/Canadian Tire in town? Getting to know that shopkeep so we can get a discount on their wares would be nice--something like crowbars or hammers or tire irons or, if you wanna be messy, hatchets.
We need to start carrying something to get people to back the fuck off. Not open carry a brick or something, but just keep a pencil or a fork or something to shank the first asshole that comes after us. Nothing more dangerous than a cornered animal, lets get those pricks to think twice.
>>2214573Im telling yall.Holyland.
Main goals:>Love Mayumi because best waifu>Get on soccer team for gainz and allies>Get training from dad, since he is secret /fit/>Make contact with Tokomichi/glasses kid for info/ally on the inner circle.>Find the mystery photographer and do... something.>>2214580Idk what this is but ima look it up.
>>2214579We'd just get arrested and/or probably labeled insane
A mask might be a good investment
>>2214586Nah man its just self defense, it’ll be okay
>>2214567So who exactly is on our shitlist right now? The rich bitch in the harem for sure, maybe Hanazawa's younger brother. I'd rather keep Nakahara off it, though--she's a better ally than enemy, even if her allegiances shift with the size of her benefactor's pocketbook.
>>2214587Yeah that's definitely wayyyy too much
>>2214591It's a joke, we can just use a normal mask
>>2214579We need to get some steel ballpoint pens. They're durable, and in a fight you can disable someone's arm by stabbing it into their armpit as hard as you can.
>>2214590What's your problem with the rich girl? She literally told us point blank to get anyone we care about out of the class ASAP, and gave a solid reason. Don't blame her for the retards in here taking the obvious bait of "tell her" over "literally just get the fuck out ASAP".
>>2214582You dont really have to read it, but it's about some loser/nerdy/shut in kid who decides to explore the nightlife of his part of the city and ends up getting his shit pushed in by delinquents.He then trains himself and starts to fight back.It's a really good read, and Im selling it short.The author does his research on fighting, tho.Same author of Suicide Island, too.
>>2214593If we deal as much damage as possible no one will want to mess with us. Also, eye-witnesses are not reliable sources of info so we have that going if a fight breaks out
>>2214590Current shitlist (IMO)>The Collective>The Teachers>Yukio>Mystery PhotographerTenuous/Unknown>Ojou>Tokomichi/Glasses>NakaharaAllies:>Ryou>Tezuka Rei>Jogger GirlWaifu:>MayumiI don't think I missed anything, but if I did lemme know, I'm gonna note all this shite down probably
Carrying a weapon won't do much good. It's useless against ambushes, useless in fights vs several opponents at once, and most importantly it allows the attacker a good excuse in any outcome. After all, everyone will testify that we attacked first, weapon in hand - the delinquent was only defending himself.
>>2214587What's our spirit animal? What would be a good fit for us?
>>2214590I really don't think Kobayashi should be in our shitlist since she's still probably doing what she can to help us. There isn't any evidence she betrayed us. Yukio may be an asshole but as far as we know he's not directly working for the collective and he just wants to protect his sister.We can't be distracted by petty grudges when we don't even know or have proof either of those people sent the thugs after us. We need to identify key leaders and shot callers like one Anon said and deal with them.
>>2214600Is the alternative better? At least with the weapon we might be able to make it out with a recognizable face. If we keep getting put into these situations with nothing but bare knuckles we’re gonna be paying some damn expensive hospital bills.
>>2214600The key in carrying a weapon is reading a situation and responding as the situation evolves. Something that is taught in most self-defense classes is, if you are carrying a weapon, going for it at first provocation is never the right choice. De-escalate if you can, read the situation carefully but decisively.Ultimately, if you need to draw your weapon, commit to it and go for the vital areas--the knees are good to go for when it coems to blunt object strikes, the inner arm, inner thigh, throat, or between the ribs with a knife, or center-mass if you have a gun. Your objective at that point is not ending the fight right, it is ending the fight *now*.
Wait a minute. Why did Kobayashi get Eiji out of the classroom? He was surely in no danger from the Collective, and his presence would have probably stopped them from attacking.Something's not right here.
>>2214604 It is. This isn't America where armed self-defence is part of national identity and individualism reigns supreme. It's japanese school, where mob mentality is multiplied by teacher's silent approval. The only way to keep our face safe, both literally and figuratively, is gathering what little allies we have into a mob of our own. Here, the only strength is strength in numbers.
>>2214626Ojou aint meta so she doesn't know that it would stop the attack, plus it might make it worse on us on the side if Eiji tries to intervene
Another option we can take through what we face is to smile and ask for more. More of an attitude towards the Collective than a solution to be rid of them forever, but there's always the possibility of sending them mixed messages or perhaps lessening the intensity of future blows out of confusion from our declaration of desiring their torment.But that runs the immediate risk of them somehow making it much, MUCH worse than what it already is now because we quite literally asked for it. Didn't say it was a good idea in the slightest, but it's one none the less.
>>2214351They're gonna get worse the more we fight back. Stick to the old plan, build our network and get people to vouch for us.
>>2214711>becoming FlagellantI don't think it would be in character, for us or for the setting. Even if it's an option, it's one I'd rather not have us take.Carrying a weapon for self-defense that can give us plausible deniability, like a decent pen or something along with TRAINING seems to be the best course of action right now. Long game is to become the one thing the mob fears but not hates. Machiavelli said it's better to be feared than loved, but it is better above all to avoid being hated, or some shit like that. Going stealth/chaos route is best.
>>2214401We do this, we end up dead or in prison. No other options.
You guys are thinking way too directly, physical weapons are easy to trace back. There's a simple recipe, chlorine + ammonia(don't do this at home), to make chlorine gas. Prolonged exposure leads to death, the good stuff.So, what can we do with a nice cup of war crimes? Frame some little shits. Steal some collective asswipe's journal, copy down their handwriting to some mysterious note left by the mixture and viola! Something big enough to get the target off our back for a bit.All we need is the aforementioned cleaning agents, rubber gloves and someone's notebook, plus a knowledge of cameras in the area we want to plant it.
>>2214990Anon, we will be the foremost suspect. Especially because we would have to miss the school at that day. And make Hanazawa miss it. And Eiji, and the harem.Instead of that, I think we might be able to redirect the Collective's attention by planting the rumor (through Murakami) that Yukio framed us because he has forbidden hots after his sister. This is scandalous enough to really make the rumor mill turn, and much more interesting than some ass-kisser.
>>2215072At the end of the day he's still Mayumi's brother and i'm sure she cares about him. Trying to ruin his social life just so the collective MIGHT get off our backs seems too scummy
>>2215090Anon, we're considering mass murder in this thread. All limiters have been released.
>>2215111Trips confirm that we will become chaos incarnate to these [Mobs]
>>2215512An unappealing option, but the problems with that are mainly of accessibility to firearms. Japan's gun laws are some of the strictest in the world, requiring lots of fees, background checks, references, and licensure. Once all that's out of the way, the only things really accessible are, really, shotguns and maybe some rifles.That all being said, on the off-chance there's a gun-runner in Backwater Podunk Town #0166849, I'd suggest getting a Mossberg 500 or a Remington 870, a couple loads of buckshot and slugs, and just storing that shit until things get really bad. Of course cost is another hurdle in and of itself; those two shotgun models listed, though relatively inexpensive and considered the most bread and butter, rock solid options for any American, would probably have a ridiculous price hike due to importing and general risk.
So genuine question here, why are we still even helping the harem at all now?I see a lot of people here saying that Yukio is on their shit list because he probably arranged everything so why are we helping the harem, who not only know about everything that is happening but are apparently fine with letting people get beaten until they're almost hospitalised as well as people getting extorted?Honestly everyone in the harem is an awful person, probably barring Eiji if he really is just that dense. Even the class rep is included, because they just sit and let this happen because they're all cowards too scared of changing the status quo.I'm not even going to be surprised if BSG actually reveals that this is Hell at this point, the only reason we haven't just ended the harem at this point is because "bruh, you'll get a [BAD END]". Why the hell should we have to get our name literally dragged through shit and be beaten just to make a group of people who are cool with that happening happy?Seriously, fuck the harem, just end it and stop anyone else from getting treated like us, because they've all implied it's happened before and what happened?Nothing, everyone's still stuck in a stalemate.
>>2215791>So genuine question here, why are we still even helping the harem at all now?[Good End]
>>2216297Again, why are we looking to give them a [GOOD END] now?I could get it before when it was just "tsundere/kuudere/childhoodfriend etc that has trouble confessing their feelings due to maybe being hurt" but now it's "tsundere/kuudere/childhoodfriend etc that has trouble confessing their feelings due to maybe being hurt so they maintain a stalemate that causes anyone who attempts to break it either accidentally or on THEIR OWN SUGGESTIONS to be horribly beaten and ostracised from their peers while they sit back and do nothing". Why would we help people who are fine with letting others suffer if it gets them want they want? Why are we fine with being this universe's whipping boy?
>>2216332Agreed. We can’t be a puncing bag because other people dont want to commit and follow through.
>>2216332I think you're misunderstanding. The Collective is after us not because we're attempting to break the stalemate, but because they're jealous of us getting close to the harem.According to the explanation we were given, they all are lusting after the haremettes, but Eiji is just to likeable to be treated like shit. Anyone else though is in danger.At least this is how I understood it.
Fuck's sake, QMCould you let us solve one issue, JUST ONE, before you throw another thing into our fuckin' lap?
>>2217842That's the [Protagonist]'s right, and we're just a [Mob] at best.
>>2217994What if we get the [Protagonist] to help us? That's what they do.
>>2218034The problem is that it's very hard to get Eiji to help us without much issue or things going bad really fast.If we ask him, it's almost guaranteed that he's going to attempt to help, but that's only if we get the chance to. As >>2214636 said, the only people who knows that Eiji is a [Protagonist] is you and your brother.What does this mean for us? It means that Eiji's harem, and probably all the other people close to him, will do their utmost best from getting him involved in our shit. I mean, would you let your friend/crush go into a situation where he might get severely hurt or even mutilated if you had the chance to prevent that from happening? Ojou did exactly that just earlier in the thread. That's issue #1: people are going to do their damn best from letting Eiji in on this whole situation.Next, just what can Eiji do? A whole fucking lot, seeing as he's subconsciously God. What WILL Eiji do? Probably some kind of power of friendship or let's all get along BS, anything to keep the status quo because status quo is the cornerstone of most harem stories. And you know what's really shitty about status quo? This can happen all over again. If we do get Eiji on our side, it's going to take a lot of effort not to make things backfire at us. That's issue #2.#3: Aftermath. After all of this is said and done, if for some reason we managed not get Eiji to maintain status quo, what then? Eiji's perfect world isn't really perfect, and we just shoved that shit right up God's nose. This might lead to the [Good End] or [True End], maybe, but then again, it might just lead straight into [Bad End]. We don't know what to expect, because apparently, everyone has a hidden dark side to them, even Eiji. The aftermath is a wildcard, a very dangerous one at that.So to put it in summary, we're kinda screwed before, during, and after Eiji helping us out.
>>2218046What we can do to guarantee that Eiji solves our problem is to make it the culmination of his harem arc. This will make the results of his actions benefical and pemanent.So basically, we need to make our problems Hikaru's problems then get Eiji to help her.
>>2218051>culmination of his harem arcThat's basically endgame right there, and something tells me we're a ways off from that. Also, the only haremette we've been any major contact with is Ryou, and face it, that's not enough to lead to the culmination of the harem arc.To do that, we need to come in contact and interact with the other members of the harem, but I don't see that happening in our current situation, seeing as all of them are on vacation via Ojou Express. Maybe in the future, but we need to solve this Collective BS now, or at least make it manageable enough to move forward with our other goals.In the first place, bringing Eiji into this will only make the Collective back off, or make everything really complicated really fast. Even if there's a possibility that maybe Eiji tells them to cut this shit out and they do... what makes you think that can happen?We can't guarantee anything, because we know jack shit.We need information, and we are trying to gather it, but even now, we're still groping around blindly and we keep getting into deeper and deeper shit. Every time we think we're making headway, something always fucking comes up, but at this point, the only one who can get us out of this situation is ourselves, and our allies, which I wouldn't count Eiji being one.At best, Eiji would be an asset we can't control. Remember, he's the one who's the [Protagonist], we're just a [Mob], albeit with the advantage of also being a [Meta] character. He's the mover of this place, not us.Eiji is a wildcard, not a trump card, I can't stress this enough. He can just as easily get in our way as much as he can help us.>inb4 new topicI just read an earlier thread, the one where we have a conversation with Mariko about getting allies, and she says this:>“Listen. What you need is someone with status. Someone with say. Someone who ranks high in society, someone whose opinion is listened to. And you need that someone to have a good opinion of you.”We reply,>“...Where in the world would I find someone like that…”Then the very next post opens with, >You return to the classroom just as the bell rings. As you slide open the door, you find Hanazawa who is just arriving as well.This might just be me grasping at the straws but, eh might as well bring it up.
Nakahara disappears for a moment, and comes back with a plastic bag. She throws it to you. When you look inside, you see multiple pieces of bandages and gauze."Nakahara-san," Hanazawa approaches her, face grim. "This wasn't part of the deal.""What isn't?" She motions for you to sit down on the floor. You follow."I thought I made it clear that Yamada-kun shouldn't be hurt.""Look, if you want some sort of refund or something--""It's not about the money, Nakahara-san.""I got that. But imagine my position too, Hana-chi."Hana-chi?"My client paid good money to see him hurt. With that many witnesses, it can't be helped. Understand my position as well. If he sees little Yama-chan unhurt, then that'll be more trouble for him."Hanazawa says nothing. Nakahara, on the other hand, crouches down and starts digging through the plastic bag."Make sure you're limping with your right leg for a few days. C'mere."She places a gauze over one of your eyes. Nakahara starts to reach for the petroleum jelly."I'll treat the lip myself, Nakahara-san."Hanazawa stops herself before she could open the jar. She looks a bit surprised, but in the end, screws it back, chuckling."You both are too cute."Nakahara stands up and throws the plastic bag to you."Hana-chi, go back to the classroom. You shouldn't be gone for too long.""But--""If you're gone too long, you're going to be linked with all this."Hanazawa hesitates for a moment."You could visit him anytime later, alright? Don't worry, he's safe for today. There won't be a guy safer in Yumegawa today than this fucker," she says while ruffling your hair."...Alright."She nods. She then turns around and leaves."Wait 3 minutes then head to the infirmary, Yama-chan." She also heads out, toward the school gates."Where are you going?""Home. I'm suspended you know?"But before she disappears, she turns around, smirking."It's fucked up, this whole thing. The way they're going after you, you might as well have burned down something.""...Yeah.""But what's new, right? The world has always been fucked up. It's cruel and unjust to the most random of people."She faces you, and slowly, an evil grin forms."Why don't you join me, Yamada-san? Let's fight the collective together. Together, we could do a lot of great things. Think about it."And with that, she's gone.>cont'd
>>2219456You head to the infirmary.You didn't even notice that you fell asleep. You wake up to the sounds of 8-bit noises.You wonder why your vision seems to be awkward, until you remember that you still have gauze over one of your eyes. You reach out to remove it."Wouldn't do that, if I were you." You hear a voice from the edge of your bed.You sit up from the bed to see Kei, hunched over, playing a video game."I'll be with you in a moment, Aniki, just gotta finish this level...">Why are you here?>When will all this end?>Do you know who started all this?>Write in
>>2219516>>Write inCan I play?
>>2219516>What should I do, then? Not just immediately, but in general. How do I make things better, for me and everyone else?
>>2219516>Who do I need to kill?
>>2219539This, but specifically ask is there anyway to keep the universe from pushing back on our decisions
>>2219516"Kei...what should I do? It seems every move I make just gets me into deeper and deeper trouble. Not just for me, but for everyone else. What should I do?"He doesn't immediately reply. The sound of pixel characters dying fill the room."Have you ever wondered where you really are Aniki? What this place is that you've been resurrected in?""It's a Harem RomCom world, right?""Indeed. But, have you ever wondered -why- you were ressurected in such a place? And as a [Mob]?"You stay silent."I could promise you one thing, Aniki. You aren't in hell. All this will pass, sooner or later. You just gotta keep at it.""That doesn't sound very reassuring.""That's because it isn't."He turns to you, smiling. "Cause you may not be in hell, but you aren't in heaven either. This place was designed, not for the happiness of everyone involved, but for one person only.""...the main character.""Correct. So why are you complaining? You shouldn't even be alive. This was part of the package when you accepted to grant the [Happiness] of everyone. You could be far better off, yes, but you also could be in a lot worse, you know?""So what you're saying is...""Yep. You're in purgatory right now, Aniki. And what you do determines where you go from here.">So you really are a demon?>Are the other mobs in purgatory too?>How do I get to heaven?>Write in
>>2219651>>Write inWhat should I do
>>2219651>Jesus fucking chirst, I want a refund or to punch god then. This is the worse fucking trade deal.
>>2219651>So you really are a demon?
>>2219651>How do I get to heaven? Or what's the best way to get [True End]
>>2219651>How do I get to heaven?
>>2219651>>How do I get to heaven?I think this will just lead to him saying we can't but I still want to ask anyways.
>>2219651>Are the other mobs in purgatory too?
>>2219651>Are the other mobs in purgatory too?>How do I get to heaven?
>>2219651"So if this is purgatory...how do I get to heaven?""Do you really have to ask? You already know, Aniki."You nod. Indeed, it's what you've been doing for a while now. "[Happiness].""You were a sinful man in your past life, Aniki. But your sins are pardonable. Anyone can escape purgatory, as long as they work for their forgiveness. Each man's purgatory is different, and for yours, it's achieving the [Happiness] of the main characters.""So are the other mobs in purgatory too?""Not necessarily. They're being is formed from the essence of human beings, yes, but none of them are serving time like you. This is your own personal purgatory. The quest to grant [Happiness] is yours alone."You stay silent. "...What should I do then?""Acknowledge the suffering, but endure. Know that as long as you exist in Yumegawa, suffering will happen, whether it be the collective against you, or something else. But that's the price you have to pay if you want forgiveness. Endure, Aniki. It isn't easy, but nothing worth working for is, right?"He stands up, and looks at you, smiling. "However, I'm not evil enough as to pigeonhole you into one set route.""What do you mean?""Nakahara Fumi."You pause at Kei dropping her name."She has a point you know? This world really is unfair. You could try fighting it, and become a pariah. Be feared. Cause chaos. Fight against the collective."He laughs. "You hate making decisions without knowing all the cards right? Well, that's the purpose of my visit. Now it's your turn.""What choice will you make?">cont'd
>>2219812>chaos route is confirmed doable>we can turn this entire Harem RomCom purgatory into Yakuza
>>2219812Ending up reading all of Holyland because of that one anon's recommendation and we gotta do chaos route.
>>2219819>>2219834Honestly I'm a bit afraid of following that route but I'll be damned if I don't think it's gonna be fun.And if this shit is purgatory and Kei said before he was the "devil", I'm not sure we should trust him about what to do next.
>>2219812You hear the ringing of the bells. Lunch break.After a few minutes, you hear the curtains slide open. You stand up to see who it is."...Hanazawa."She closes the curtain once again. She pulls up a chair, and sits beside the bed."Yamada-kun. Are you doing ok?""...Yeah."She reaches for the plastic bag and brings out the petroleum jelly."Sit up, Yamada-kun. Your split lip is still bleeding a bit."You follow her instructions. You watch her as she applies medicine on to your wound.Her eyes are filled with concern and worry. Under her black and pink eyeliner, you could make out her eyebags. She probably got the cash to pay out Nakahara by working late hours doing computer stuff.And she used that hard-earned money to save you."I'm sorry," Hanazawa suddenly says."What for?""I...It's dangerous, I know. Talking with Nakahara. But I was running out of options. I wanted someone strong to protect you, and she's the only one I could think of...">To be honest, I should be the one apologizing>Don't associate yourself with her anymore, Hanazawa.>Write in
>>2219851>To be honest, I should be the one apologizing.
>>2219851>>To be honest, I should be the one apologizingI'm putting you in danger just by spending time with you. Thinking about you getting mixed in this or what's happening with me happening to you. The thought of you getting hurt is more painful than anything they could ever do

>>2219851>>To be honest, I should be the one apologizing
>>2219851>To be honest, I should be the one apologizingAnd with a bit of this >>2219863
You know what I finally realized?A BSG quest is kind of like a Bethesda game. The options you pick will be what they seem like 20% of the time. You can pick something innocuous like "Alright, let's do it." And end up insulting the guy's mother because apparently you didn't read the unreadable mood of the text.
>>2219812Welp, so much redemption. Time to see how we get ourselves killed
>>2219651Gotta say, the shift in tone for this quest with that convo with Kei was huge.
>>2219851"Hanazawa...to be honest, I should be the one apologizing. I'm putting you in danger just by being with you. I don't want you to get mixed in in all this because of me. You getting hurt is worse than anything they could do to me."She smiles, and caresses your cheek. "There's no need for apologies. The same goes for me too, you know? I can't bear seeing you hurt. So...so..."You start to see her eyes water. You pull her in, and embrace her."Hanazawa...""Ken-kun," she says in your chest. "Please don't do anything rash. They...they don't know what they're doing. I hate seeing them do this to you. It eats me up inside. But we could do it, you know? We could get through this. Once the class rep comes back...everything will be alright again, right?"You rub her back, so thin and frail under the fabric of the school uniform. She's shaking. This whole thing's taking a toll on her too.>I'll protect you, no matter what it takes.>We'll get through this, as long as we're together.
>>2219946>I'll protect you, no matter what it takes.
>>2219946>>I'll protect you, no matter what it takes.>>We'll get through this, as long as we're together.>> I love you

>>2219946this>>2219963Can't wait to see what horrors await us in the near future.
>>2219946"I'll protect you, no matter what it takes." You brush a loose strand of hair from your forehead. "As long as we're together, we'll get through this." You smile to reassure her. "I love you."She smiles, and kisses you.The corner of your lips hurt for a bit. But the warmth and sweetness invading all your senses is enough for the pain to fade away, if only for a bit.-------Classes end. The teachers don't even say anything when they see the sorry state of your face, covered with gauze and plasters.Your classmates avoid you, not looking at you nor saying anything. Hanazawa also says nothing, something you told her to do to avoid her getting into trouble.You limp out of the classroom, when your phone rings. It's an unknown number. You pick it up."Hello?""Ken-kun." It's Ryou. "Please go to the rooftop once you're free."She doesn't even wait for your reply. Guess you have to show up now.You make your way to the rooftop. You open the door, and met with the sight of Ryou and Kobayashi Mariko.They stare at you, stunned. This is the first time they've seen you, after all.Ryou turns to Kobayashi. She is furious."I had no choice," Kobayashi says. "I had to get Eiji-kun out or who knows what could've happened?""So you left him to be beaten up?!""Be reasonable, class rep. There's only so much I could do to protect Yamada-kun. I'm already putting my name on the line vouching for him in my class!""So you didn't even bother trying to help Ken-kun?!">Calm down class rep. Kobayashi did nothing wrong.>I really could have used some help back there, y'know?>These injuries are fake. No harm done.>Write in

>>2220053Literally any choice except this. I don't want to alienate Kobayashi instantly but I don't trust her fully either. Saying the injuries are fake would bring suspicion to Fumi if Kobayashi is a spy
>>2220045>I really could have used some help back there, y'know?
>>2220045>Calm down class rep. Kobayashi did nothing wrong. Her getting Eiji and the others involved wouldn't have done anything but cause a worse punishment down the road.
>>2220059Oh fuck you're right. I think going with the solo write-in is the best bet.>>2220045changing my vote from >>2220053 to >>2220051
>>2220045>Remain silent. Hey, if they wanna argue, let them argue.
>>2220045>It's fine. We just need to figure out how to deal with this. It's gotten so far out of hand they were willing to break my legs.
>>2220057I'll change my vote to just the write in as well
>>2220045>Calm down class rep. Kobayashi did nothing wrong.
also >Kobayashi did nothing wrong.I kek'dI get the feeling Kobayashi was actually involved in this but I can't prove how. Just a suspicion. That said Nakahara did say it was a 'he' involved so maybe I'm wrong.
>>2220083In any case, Hanazawa is the only one we can trust with the fact our injuries are fake. I'm hesitant to even let our parents know.
>>2220083This calling her out is not the answer but I don't like the other options that make this seem like not a big deal.
>>2220088Pretty much yeah
>It's fine. We just need to figure out how to deal with this. It's gotten so far out of hand they were willing to break my legs.Writing.
>>2220045"Ryou." You call for the class rep. "It's fine. What's done is done. We just need to figure out how to deal with this. It's getting out of hand."Ryou still looks furious, but in the end she backs away from Kobayashi. "You're right. This is getting absurd now.""To be honest, class rep," Kobayashi adds, with brows furrowed. "I'm afraid this is nothing new."Ryou folds her arms and starts thinking. "I expected better from 2-1. I didn't know me being suspended was going to lead to this.""Things are no better in my class as well." Kobayashi adds."And the teachers are in on this," You say.They both look a bit surprised, but Kobayashi shakes her head."It's not that they're on the collective's side, per se. It's just that they won't take yours either.""So in the end..."Kobayashi shrugs. "No help there." She turns to you. "Have you found a person with say, yet?"You shake your head. You've met no one that matched those parameters. Ogai-san seems pretty influential, but you doubt the collective will believe a laid back guy's words.Ryou looks at you. "Do you have any ideas, Ken-kun?">Find the source of all this and cut it>Hunker down and wait it out>Why not ask for Eiji's help?>Write in

>>2220147>Hunker down and wait it outSo long we are injured they will leave us alone. We can use this time as a excuse to be recovering from our wounds and then once we end trainning with Pa we come back and kick everyone's asses

>>2220147>Hunker down and wait it outGetting Eiji involved would be way too messy but going after the collective will demand a response from them and I don't want Mayumi caught up in their games.
>>2220147"Maybe if we could find the source of all this, we could cut it from the root and that will solve everything.""Is that so?"A strange voice emerges from the rooftop doorway. You don't recognize the voice instantly, but you spot Ryou and Kobayashi wide-eyed, shocked.You look back.Nakamura Eiji is standing there, frowning.He hasn't returned to the classroom ever since he and Tokomichi went into a treasure hunt. He looks you up and down, eyes filled with sadness."Nakamura-san...""Yamada-san. If you find out who the root of all this is, what will you do?">I will ask him to help me stop it.>I will destroy him.>Write in.

>>2220210>I don't care about what happens to me but I want to stop this before they hurt someone important to me
>>2220210>Well, with sufficient evidence, I can take the matter to the authorities and they wouldn't be able to ignore it. Not with overwhelming evidence of what's happening. Once the people who are responsible for this unacceptable behavior have been dealt their justice by the authorities, everything should be in the clear, right?
>>2220210Backing >>2220217Still too early to decide for sure. Since it's Japan we can't exactly go full pic related on the perpetrators, as much as I would want t
>>2220210"I don't know yet," you answer Eiji. "I'll cross that bridge when I get there. But I'll do whatever it takes to stop the people important to me getting hurt."He nods. "I understand.""I'm sorry, Yamada-san. But it was me all along."(TO BE CONT'D)
>>2220223Goddamn dude. That's some 4th level reading.
>>2220260This seems too easy? Something's up, Maybe it was the little girl that Eiji keeps trying to protect
>>2220260OH SHIT NIGGA.Shouldn't have befriended his girls.
>>2220260Nigga use the full write-in for onceThe stipulation about not wanting to use violence if possible is important to the intent of it.
>>2220260But why Kami-sama? I just want to give you a [True End] or does he want this stalemate of the girls to go on indefinitely?
My guess is this probably has to do with Ryou getting suspended, he probably blamed us for that and since we kept getting closer to her he got jealous. Coupled with the fact we started talking to all of them more and we forced him to be mean to all his girls bar Ryou at one point maybe he just assumed we were some evil mastermind.
The other option is he might feel responsible because he's the one who tried to bring us in the club so him saying 'he' did it means more that he did it unintentionally but feels responsible.Not entirely sure, looking forward to the next session.Thanks for the run BSG.
>>2220274If I had to guess the second one.Also thanks for the run BSG.
>>2220276Maybe the MC is another soul boundex to go to hell once the harem ends. That's why bro want us to reach the end so he can collect the main cast souls to hell.And we as the devil's minion would receive the proposition to go to 'heaven' by creating another purgatory illusion such as this we are living.Or not.
>>2220288Wouldn't it make more sense to get a [Bad End] so he could get the souls than trying to have Eiji and the whole harem achieve [Happiness]>>2220279This sounds more like Eiji, I honestly hope he isn't directly responsible for this I wanted to befriend him and if he is responsible I can't forgive him for making Hanazawa cry
>>2220300Yes but it know how it is with devil contracts they never are what they seem. Maybe the Hapiness is just something that allows the people in it to pass on. As our bro say we are in purgatory, so they are basicaly haunting this world ubtill what their wishes are full filled.And it would make sense with our bro wanting it to reach a true end. Because as our character said before not always the true end is the happyest end.
>>2220260No. No! We can't be this close to the end! This is too soon--nothing has been resolved!But I must ask why. If the universe is entirely gravitating toward this teenaged idiot's desire for [Happiness], why would he conspire to want us as close to dead as a Japanese Cold? Is he that desperate to maintain this Bitch Cold War until the end of the series?More importantly: What the hell is going on in realspace that is forcing this plot through twist after twist? Has the writing department devolved into a tribal battleground? Have all the animators run off and the key frames have to be shipped off to South Korea with badly pencilled in notes in the dead space between frames? Did the creator just up and leave his creation over "creative differences"?
>>2220387>What the hell is going on in realspace that is forcing this plot through twist after twist? You just said it. Hell is doing some bullshit maybe mutiple demons trying to cash the souls in this reality.>Has the writing department devolved into a tribal battleground?The imps must have revolted.> Have all the animators run off and the key frames have to be shipped off to South Korea with badly pencilled in notes in the dead space between frames? Worts they are being asked from sodom but the succubus are parading throught the town naked demanding respect from other high ranking demons>Did the creator just up and leave his creation over "creative differences"?Eiji is the creator of this place everything revolves around him. How and why i have no fucking idea, a strong will? A Devil contract? He's actualy the flame of a dea god? Who knows?tip: the QM knows
>>2220260This run somehow seems a lot weaker than the previous one, but I can't exactly define why.
I feel something about Angel Beat vibes here. Is Eiji the Tenshi here? Our Brother is the leader who wants to attack Tenshi? And we are just a protagonist who whatever we fucking do will or will not fuck us in the butt?I dunno im just spitting nonsense here but it closely resemble something like this.(KEYAni always finds a way)
>>2220417cause we are nearing the end?
>>2220471>implying this is even anywhere near an ending
>>2220471If we go by the standard VN pacing, this is just the beginning of the real deal.
>>2220260Punch him, keep punching him, kick him in the dick. Walk away.
>>2220622Yep definitely, there's too many unresolved issues for this to be the end and just look at Eiji. He looks so fucking ashamed and sad it's very likely by saying it's his fault he means because he tried befriending us.>>2220417I felt it too. I think it's jusf because the posts were slightly shorter than usual and QM wasn't responding as much. He was either feeling down when he wrote this or he's keeping his mouth shut in case he spoils something
Please dont misunderstand Eiji words.He would probably meant that1. He is at fault2. He probably know and just left it until it becomes out of control3. He probably have some connection at first until they didnt listen to him or to any other girls anymore4. etc etc etcI'm not keen to believe he is but somewhat partially at fault in some cases but since we gonna cross that bridge sooner or later unless BSG pushes us to the chaos route which is so railroading
>>2221631>unless BSG pushes us to the chaos route which is so railroadingI dont think he'll push us into that. I think its far more likely that lots of anons are going to vote for that action that lead to that.
>>2221631>Implying he'll have to do that when so many anons already have their hearts set to that route.I'm not a fan of it, but I'm willing to admit that it'd be something I've never seen before.
>>2225537I mean honestly not that many. Even if there were a few reactionary anons that got pissed off at getting beat up, you can see from the "What Will You Do" vote that most people still want to wait it out for more information before going full murder hobo.
>>2225537Honestly it seems like just a couple anons are pushing for it, and I'm not into it personally.
