Youkoso v2c2 part 3
The first class we visited felt slightly odd . Although it had the same basic layout, it felt like we came to a completely different place . I corrected my initial misunderstanding that a home and an away game were only slightly different . Since we didn’t know if the class would be an enemy or an ally, our initial impression of the class was also different . Even Ike and Yamauchi were shocked; they couldn’t move from the doorway .
Being the only one unfazed, Kushida started talking to her friends with a smile right after she entered the classroom . What an amazing attitude . She was able to easily chat with her friends regardless of their gender, similar to how she acted with class D . I wouldn’t be able to do the same .
The two who were the most jealous were Ike and Yamauchi . Kushida was talking and having fun with people who were clearly more attractive .
“D-Damn it! There are way too many guys aiming for my Kushida-chan!”
What do you mean… What kind of dialect is that?
“Don’t panic Ike, it’s alright . We’ve have an advantage: we’re in the same class as Kushida-chan!”
Feeling annoyed, the prideful two comforted each other . Although there were only 10 people in the room, Kushida started explaining the situation to those who were there .
Class B’s atmosphere felt the same as Class D, certainly not someone one would expect from a bunch of honor students . It wasn’t stiff at all and, contrary to how I imagined them, there were people who dyed their hair while some of the girls were wearing skirts that were too short .
I guess you couldn’t judge a book by it’s cover . Or was there something other than academic ability that Class B was better than Class D at? This school’s system still had way too many mysteries .
It’s bothersome to think about these things .
As this was Kushida’s lead, I left her to take care of things .
Trying not to be noticed by the others, I took a few steps back from the doorway .
“I want to go home…”
I didn’t want them to hear me complaining to myself .
Out on the field, I saw the track and field club running laps around the track .
Since the air conditioning was comfortable, I didn’t feel like going outside .
“The sports club sure is working hard . ”
Having finished scouting out class B, Ike joined me in looking out of the window . He’s a fickle guy; this wait must have been boring for him .
“People who participate in club activities are stupid . ”
“What’s with the sudden thought? You know that saying those kind of things will turn half the school against you, don’t you?”
I didn’t know the exact number, but I estimated that around 60 to 70 percent of the students participated in club activities,
“Where’s the merit in such a harsh training regimen? If they like to exercise, they should just do it as a hobby . ”
It was strange to consider club activities solely as a benefit or a drawback .
Participating in clubs had its benefits . One was able to socialise with others, as well as experience success and failure . These were experiences not included in academics . Furthermore, members of the go home club wouldn’t receive the benefits of being in a club .
“I guess . ”
I waited for Kushida’s report for the next few minutes, but I didn’t get what I was expecting .
When Ike says there are “way too many guys aiming for Kushida-chan”, he says “suginai”, which is spelled in kanji as “Sugiuchi”, a famous baseball player . Apparently this is a meme that Ayanokouji also doesn’t understand when he says, “Is this some kind of dialect?” (I don’t really know the meme either but it exists . )
