"The world isn't boring. You've become a boring person!" The Coach declared with one hand stretched out as if he was saying something of great importance
Lately however I have been seeing strange sights just like that from that I can see. I, am personally having loads of fun, though I probably can't see myself becoming one of those boring people.
Yet, "firsts times" are always fun.
A first love.
A first friend.
The first mistake.
The first ladder win.
The first Otome game!
Granted, I always think back to this.
"The old days sure were fun."
I think back to nursery school, when I was the same as a large number of other humans.
I think back to elementary school, when I was so glad to have that backpack.
I think back to middle school, when a bus pass presented to an adult gave the feeling of a gentleman, a man of virtue.
I think back to high school, when others kicked me down and as a consequence for exerting myself to win something for enjoyment; I remember all of it.
Yes, something significant like that.
"Well, what's so bad about virgins?"
I asked the question, and Coach spat out all the tea as he coughed. As usual, he ad-libbed himself as the 'vulnerable person' because we were the only people in the room. Today was all about having fun, though.
The coach's eyes began to water, and he immediately went to the table where he wiped his mouth clean. Then, he glared at me.
"Now it's my turn to speak, why not come back here and I'll return the favor?"
"That's sweet, Coach. But I have a standard way of thinking, and that way is by direct connection!"
"What pride! Eve, in just a short time, you'll become aware of a progamer's role..."
"I am. I am fully aware that this progaming team is enough for my harem—"
"How about we start by fixing that absurd misunderstanding of yours "
The coach made an earnest comeback, just like any other day. Even then, it was still cute.
The coach was cute enough that I put my elbow to the desk and informed her,
"I like you. Please go out with me."
The coach looked at me.
"Eve, why is this random, and out of nowhere confession occurring?!"
"I am pretty sure it's more about Umineko than Higurashi nowadays"
Even if he did reply back, it was a quite a tragic predicament.
"Eve, don't tell me you've forgotten your first speech here?!"
"What was it? Uhhh… ‘It's fine, go ahead without me!' … something like that?
"What kind of circumstances was the Team in at the beginning?! Wrong!"
"I didn't say that? Well then… ‘I have no interest in ordinary humans. If you are a Time traveler, alien―'"
"That's dangerous Eve! It has various meanings!"
I was scolded by the coach. … No wait, I need to get to the bottom of this subject, right? Isn't that the wrong label? I quickly remembered back to that time... Yes. i remember that time, I've gathered the team members… 4 handsome men, and made a proclamation.
"I love you all. I love you very much. I want to go out with you all. I'll absolutely make you happy."
"Yes! That time, you gave the entire team that half-baked confession! Listen up, you can't just say you want to go out with someone, and not care who is it, who would be swayed by that?!"
"How rude. Anyone proper could be swayed, I have no interest in anyone that isn't handsome."
"Then anyone that's handsome will do right?"
"I have a single-track mind! Bishounen!"
"I should tie you up!"
"They sure are rare, Bishounen."
"That's not the problem! A confession said to several people at once, it's not sincere!"
"Eh… Isn't it better than an indecisive main character? This is just the beginning, and declaring, "I'm aiming for the Harem Route!", doesn't it make me more interesting?"
"Unfortunately you aren't anything like Otome game heroine!
"Then are you saying the fact is I'm not a heroine! Even if I love guys?!
"Basically you are the worst choice for a heroine! It's a selection! You are more like the heroine's friend! Realize that you are a joke character for gags!"
Coach was awfully detailed.
"Someone else has a nice face too-"
"Of an influential artist!"
Only Coach Cella would say that about Bishounen Characters… I guess, but whatever.
I chatted with the coach as I went to get a glass of water for him.
I sat down while watching the complex Coach. I tilted my seat back and forth.
"What happened? coach…"
"… Eve, occasionally you are kind of thoughtful and sometimes kind… subconsciously…"
"Ah… With that sort of opening, I think you can get a more favorable impression right?"
"That was your aim!? Damn it! Already I have gone and somewhat increased my inner relationship points!"
"Hehehe… Well, actually that's really exaggerated, but I'm certain it's my aim, more or less. I mean, it is an old habit. It makes me popular among the guys though.
"It's subconsciously done now."
"Coach. You're too late; I have said all the evidence that needs to be understood…"
Damn, he turned red. he nervously fidgeted around … cute. It's really cute, coach. Because it was a great effort for the team to understand me, Cella became a great driving force behind it.
Then the door the team living room opened intruding their time together.
"Eve. Stop teasing Cella so much."
So says, the team emperor, BoxeR as he entered the room.
Now that BoxeR is here, Cella became a totally different person. A tall figure, it appeared as if he was born into an influential family, it was fascinating to be so close to the sprinkles of his charisma, while acting kindly to possess a balance…
Cella has a different significance however; it's still possible to say he is an ideal Bishounen. No, rather than a Bishounen, you can perhaps say he is a beautiful person in general.
Her seat during meetings was chosen at her discretion, I argued.
"It's not something I tease about. However, I will embarrass him."
"It's not that bad."
"It will be fine. We both had the same idea."
I had to explain; Cella was shouting, "Liar!" and was ignoring me.
While Cella reverted to a child-like personality infront of BoxeR, BoxeR started talking to him.
"But, no one else is coming. My Harem!"
"The SlayerS Team is not your Harem, Eve. But, where are they? We don't have anything planned. Whenever we get together, eventually we just talk and eat snacks these days."
As he was saying, BoxeR immediately reached for his bag and took out some food while taking a sip of his Pocari Sweat.
"You don't understand, BoxeR. Basically feelings change, and it's a fact that change happens every meeting. Look, even games, the meeting places are decided by the heroine right?"
"Even if its natural knowledge, that's a bit troubling…"
"In other words, the SlayerS team house is where I come to raise my affection levels, and if they don't come how will they have an event scene―"
"So that's why they aren't coming. That's preferable."
It was a quick and cruel jab. BoxeR… Cella could obviously do the jab, but not to that extent, and was occasionally cruel as well. But that was just plain psychological damage.
I cleared my throat loudly, adding some positive thinking.
"But, BoxeR, you came to raise our affection levels as well"
"… Ah… Hmm, that must be it."
What a cruel rejection. Superb inattention though. he took a snack out of the basket, and crunched on it as he started reading a book.
"Ku… but such Kuudere characters, their feelings get intense once they fall for you!"
"You want to try?"
As I stared at BoxeR particular detail of his mouth changed into a thin smile, as if he became cheerfully sinister.
Cella's "Higurashi" material was growing extremely terrifying now.
It can't be helped…
"I understand, then, BoxeR, I'm just aiming for a physical relationship! There is no need for love!"
"… Ah, next question, then."
I got ignored magnificently. Oh well. But… aiming for a physical relationship, that unskillful way would make it more difficult with the guys right? And thinking on it, suddenly, Cella quickly extended his hand for one of BoxeR's snacks. Just before she ate the snack I gave him a warning.
"You're going to gain weight…"
"Uguu~~ … It will be fine. The nutrition, it will in turn help me grow taller!"
"But… isn't there a bigger risk that it will go to your stomach, that's a big concern."
"Ah, it will be fine! It will be difficult for me to gain weight!"
I put my hand on Cella's shoulder.
"It will be alright, coach. If no one wants you anymore…"
"Eh? Possibly… If I'm fat, Will you still like me? Even if I am not a Bishounen?"
The coach was moved to tears. I gave him a pleasant smile.
"If no one will take your hand… Live through your work."
"I give assistance behind the shadows! And support you on your blog as Anom"
"What shadows?! My standard way of life is beginning to forsake me! I don't have any value if I'm fat!"
"Well then, if you don't want to get fat keep fighting for me, I loudly support you."
Cella dropped his shoulders. the coach looked like somewhat almost ready to accept her new reality, it was cute but his mood wasn't what I was hoping for… However I was caught unprepared for my harem member to feel so troubled. My harem members, each one of them, have to keep herself shining or otherwise it's no good! It's similar to a mother when she casts away her daughter like that!
"Good luck, you're going to need it to stay in my Harem!"
"Ah, maybe it's better to rapidly get fat."
Why everybody, but I can say with total confidence that is tsun. Slowly someone will have to fall dere for me, or I'll become completely lonely. The protagonist of an otome game is popular with men, and is also not miserable. I had many opportunities, where they would end up in a close friend ending in life, instead of that happening I'm going to have a pitiful life.
BoxeR was completely absorbed in his book, while Cella just ate snacks and looked out the window the entire time.
With the enormous free time I started thinking about our next topic, but then the door rattled open, this time two guys entered the room.
"Ah, sorry for being late."
The contrasting attitudes went out together.
The guy with lots of energy earlier, MMA, who is also the team captain, furthermore she's also my classmate. and of course naturally he's also a Bishounen.
Even if there aren't any specific club activities, he's quite active … perhaps a good way to describe him would be an energetic person. But the fact is his livelihood is refreshing, and besides being popular with the girls, her popularity is high among the male fans. A lot fans also have some special feelings for him, and so his popularity skyrockets.
And, going to the person who was bowing their head in apology, I quickly moved my eyes and stopped at the other guy, Ryung. MMA's younger brother. His position is as a TvT sniper but the team doesn't get alot of those match ups anymore so he has nothing to do.
Also this child, he spent so much time with his active older brother and became absorbed in his own world, therefore he's not good with girls, I'm pretty confident his youth can pull some heartstrings. Well … the reason he isn't good with men isn't because he dislikes them, but I'm certain it's due to his own inexperience.
"Yes Yes, MMA and Ryung, ‘For the first time something is so interesting' or something like that, was there something interesting?"
We returned back to the first subject.
"Well, that's unexpected."
MMA took a seat next to me, watching me suspiciously.
"Well… Cella wrote, the world hasn't become boring; you have become boring, so what's the reason? "
"Because you people are rude!"
The coach makes a racket like that a lot however, we just ignore him. The two brothers pondered for a bit with a small "Hmmm".
Ryung was sitting diagonally from me, and he was the first to answer back.
"Well there was a time I tried to let my hair grow, but now I just keep it pretty short."
"Ah, I see. Ryung's appearance. It's alright, Ryung!, you're cute enough already!"
"Ah, thank you…"
"Eve! Stop flirting with my little brother in front of me!"
Ryung shrank and blushed at my words, while MMA shouted at me. It's the same as usual. I sighed, I put my hand on MMA who was sitting next to me.
"Yes… Yes. Jealous MMA… It's perfectly charming!"
"No, No, I'm not jealous!"
"MMA, if we marry, Ryung will become my brother in law and when you think about it that's a great charm―"
"Hey what about my charm!"
MMA became really angry… it was cute for him. Even with jealousy …
"I'm not jealous!"
"Oh! We now have telepathy! My goal is near!"
"That's scary! To get something like that from you is really scary! To get that impression is also really scary!"
"That impression? … Well it was inevitable. I guess I should leave it at that."
"I'm going to kill her…"
I shivered at MMA's words, while Ryung frantically tried to calm him down.
Well now, we've precisely gathered all the major team members today.
I see that I am surrounded by 4 individual Bishounen, with me alone, I'm pleased to say.
"Yess, it's a celebration of my Harem! I get to watch this scene unfold. Its great I worked hard at getting into this Progaming Team."
With my words, BoxeR said "That reminds me" and put down her book.
"Eve got in using the "Excellence Method" … Although it doesn't look like it."
"I agreeー. This girl, when you look at her she's nothing more than a lovestruck idiot.ー"
MMA had the same thought, while Ryung giggled.
I attempted to reply, but Kaichou placed her snack on the desk.
"I say it's a terrible thing but, in spite of it the selection process for the team are utterly ridiculous! The popularity contest is ridiculous, but the excellence method is also, when they don't assess the top player in the year based on mental state!"
Cella had already often said her complaints about the system. Besides that I already have a standard reply to her complaints.
"I think this system is the best."
The selection system of the SlayerS team is very different from other teams in Korea.
First, basically there is an absolute "Popularity Contest" for the selection of members. However, this always brings in Bishounen since there aren't many female players that are good. So, it's really just a beauty pageant.
The system, it's actually quite sensible. Though it may be a choice for appearance, and really it's campaigning for nothing, the fans live life everyday purely, just to vote for someone they admire.
As a consequence, the SlayerS Team was filled with Bishounen.
Due to that, it became a meeting ground. Then a new method came up, the "Excellence Method". The person in the year with the best ladder record、if that person's wish was to get into the team, it was possible to do so. It was made in order so an excellent player could get in, without worrying about outward appearances…
But, because of this hope of taking the top player at the end of the year… I, Eve, took this chance. It was a simple reason. It's…
"But, Eve did well. It wasn't all about power."
I looked at MMA whose eyes shined with amazement. Cella sighed and muttered, "Really".
"It was for getting me into the "Bishounen Community", anything really. Yes. Even if I was the worst player back then and only in the gold league, a year ago I became obsessed with getting to the top, but it was a piece of cake though."
"… Ah, somethime I think that Eve could be a very humble girl…"
"Ryung! That's an extreme delusion! To admire someone like Eve is a total delusion!"
MMA said that with extreme rudeness.
"My skill is a fact, MMA."
"You have impure motives! Your enrollment in the Student Council and you've tried to tie us up with your feelings…"
I was affected by MMA's words, and even Cella joined in with a "Yeah!" damn it.
"It's difficult to believe that everyone on the team is in love with me…"
"Not a single person is in love with you!"
"What a surprise! You are too overconfident in yourself!"
"No…It can't be… What about that night with you coach…"
"What night with me?!"
"I'm surprised you are talking about this, stop saying things…"
"Can't be… Cella. Well then, perhaps that night was not what I was thinking…"
"That's what I have been saying."
Cella withdrew into herself and searched her memories.
Everyone in the group watched attentively, and I said a celebratory phrase to myself.
"That night, Coach, you had many intense dreams and you desired me, is it not?!"
"Here is a criminal wannabe! A stalker in the making!"
"That's mean! Why would you toy with my pure heart like that?!"
"But you are also toying with my emotions!"
Cella became tired of shouting and sat down to take a breath. It was expected with Cella having a small build, and little strength. For just a minute, the argument died, and was completely gone.
Seeing the disheveled state of affairs, BoxeR closed his book and started talking.
"Eve. I don't particularly dislike you, but honestly don't you think it would be better to conduct yourself in a more intelligent way? Even if you are creating a harem, you shouldn't be declaring it, but sincerely making favorable circumstances, that's the easier road."
"Hmmm… the Emperor's idea is reasonable… But, smoothing over things like this, however! My figure is full of desire, and that's the truth! For myself, its unskillful nonsense! Now, I'm devoted to my sexual desire!"
"Your heart is severely rotten."
I looked at MMA who gave me a cold look. Ah, the ‘tsun' period.
My life is based on the bible of Otome… no, it's actually about Eroge (I want age limits on them though) it appears. You don't start a harem, it's expected that the character has a steady process, and frankly the character is in the best place. That sort of place should have significance, and right now I'm in a very blessed place.
"Fufufu… One by one in succession, the SlayerS will fall dere under my influence…"
"I have to say something about your influence…"
Ryung made a wry smile.
"Well, if you aren't dere, I'd quickly change plans to make you dere by disgrace―"
"That's a refreshing level of heresy,"
It appears that MMA's tsun meter has swung back yet again.
I waved my finger at her "Tsk, Tsk, Tsk".
"It's alright , MMA. Think about it... but frankly I have a system for this kind of story, instead of raising everyone's relationship points steadily, in my style I'll raise them "one chapter at a time"."
"It isn't in just Galges, it appears they are school dramas also right? The teacher helps students with their problems, and gradually goes through the whole class. And in the last part of the story, all the students in his class say their thanks, and in that sense it's a harem ending."
"You're contaminating the mood of a school drama with that last part."
"Yes… But I will start with the person who is most favorable to me, Ryung, then Cella, then MMA, and then BoxeR, gradually taking problems that get harder in difficulty, and then magically, everyone loves me…"
"Whatever, saying that Boxer is easier to capture than me, it's a bit annoying."
"… Why am I the first target…?"
Ryung trembled. With excitement I hope.
Cella, who was probably still tired, of course started attacking my idea.
"Why am I after Ryung?! Where did you get that thought?!"
"Eh? Because coach…it's already too late, you've already reached the second stage right? For example when I walk with another guy, you get upset at the situation right?"
"When you walk with another guy Eve, I quickly contact the police, so they can protect him!"
"Cella is jealous."
"Aaah, Eve I'm going to send you to the cruelest bad ending!"
Cella's eyes were very dark. It was like a chestnut kind of color, he averted his eyes.
Since no one went to support her, I decided to change the subject.
"But, I fear the worst end is what you had said at the beginningー"
"? What? What are you saying?"
"Becoming a boring person… in short, this blessed environment, it seems as if it's becoming less blessed, I think. This chapter in my life, the me right now… has been in the team for a month now, this harem situation I can't help but think this was enjoyable. Someday… someday, if I may become used to all the circumstances like this, I think."
"Ah. Well, I understand, I guess."
Unusually, the coach agreed with my idea. Also, a sigh.
"As such, it could go one way or another if one is careful with it. It's the same with your rank in life. With a person's affluence in life, if their income falls, their standard of life would stay the same."
"I was out of it. I like a fatherly type of management however. For better or worse, or rather an intense ebbing and flowing rate of income."
"I see. Because of that Cella, you made the Holy Check motto, money still can't stop a teenage youth's hobby…"
"Eve, I'm confused! What hobby?! Also I'm not like that!"
"Besides, a characteristic of slapping people's cheeks with a wad of money, that has to change…"
"I'm a noble person! Say what you want, but let's not go that far!"
"Now in poverty, uniquely, ones purpose in life would be to pick up home invading ants with their limbs…"
"Is that suppose to be how you see me?"
Cella used up all her energy shouting and became tired… Messing around with a senior of this team has very unusual effects.
However, if I remember correctly, when I became the top player, I remember when I was at the bottom rank and had to go back to get the top rank. In other words, I can say with confidence I was a boring human.
Happiness was right there, I just had to look inside. I wanted to get better, to get higher; I still wanted to get higher. But one day I reached a limit… I started to stagnate, and that guy felt this boring world, and perhaps became a "Boring Human".
I didn't want that
"I'll create a Bishounen Harem!" My loud declaration!
MMA said shockingly, "And, she says she's going to become Pirate King…".The other members looked at me and said something about my circumstances, "Again.", nevertheless I will continue on.
"Even if I compromise, I'll only compromise for a high place! The Bishounens shall serve me, someday, I can say from the place I rise to ‘Ah, they are getting boring', that will be my compromise!"
"I see. For the time being I'll just let that go until I leave. I'd like to leave it at that."
BoxeR for some reason smiled. Oh, did the points go up? As usual, I caught that wasn't the aim by the way.
MMA smiled and said, "Aside from harems, aiming high...it's not a bad stance."
Then, Cella started talking…
"Ehh, you guys do you your best, I'm too tired"
So we just hanged around for the rest of the day.
Every day, boring people have fun conversations there.
