Natsuki certain that but big mouth for someone who keeps a manga collection in the clubroom M-M-MMANGA Natsuki finds herself stuck between saying Monika and manga, M-MANGA IS LITERATURE!
*music returns to normal* Swiftly defeated Natsuki plops back into her seat. Are Yuri’s eyes different where they like red outlines like that before? UUHH Maybe they were and I just forgot I don’t know I’m sorry friend Arin We’ll make sure to put your comfort first, okay? Yuri shoots Natsuki with a DISSappointed glance um anyway now that you’re in the club and all Perhaps you might have interest in picking up a book to read. Sure. also…is the…THE ROOM IS TILTED Yeah, I’m starting to be like bwwaaaulgh…. You know what it’s slowly zooming in too. Yeah, yeah something something you’re right. Oh Ohhh It’s fuckin’ with me. It’s making me a little sick here. Hurry well I can’t really say no either way like you said I’m in this club now! (Nervous Laughter) So it only feels right for me to do something like that if you ask… W-wait I didn’t mean it like that-! Euhh If you don’t really want to then forget I said anything I guess Ah no it’s not that Yuri I mean I want to try to be a part of this club. You know so even if I don’t read often I’d be happy to pick up a book if you wanted me to (Under his breath) And maybe read it a lil bit Are you sure? I just felt like Well, as vice-president and all, that I should help you could start on something you might- I’m gonna throw up right now. (Arin laughs) I am like Hard to Starboard! Yuri reaches into her bag and pulls out a book. ‘S a book of Satanic rituals. pff at this point. I didn’t want you to feel left out So I picked out a book that I thought you might enjoy It’s short read so it should keep your attention. Even if you don’t usually read and we could, you know? Discuss… it… if you wanted… Yes, I would like that This is how was this girl accidentally being so cute?! she even picked out a book she thinks I’ll like despite me not reading much..! Yuri! Thank you! I’ll definitely read this. hah- Imnotgonnareadit. Throw it out the window I ~enthusiastically~ take the book and immediately bury it in a box of potatoes- phew A box of potatoes? you can read it at your own pace remember. We have potatoes everywhere from our last playthrough- Oh yeah that’s right. I look forward to hearing what you think AH now that everyone-Fucking thank god Now that everyone’s settled in I expected Monika to kick off some scheduled activities for the club But that doesn’t seem to be the case. Yuri’s face is already buried in a book. I can’t help but notice your intense expression like she was waiting for this chance Also, it’s glitching out a bunch! Meanwhile Natsuki is rummaging around in the closet looking for potatoes. aauh..! Hear Natsuki utter and exasperated sigh from within the closet she seems to be annoyed by something I approach her, in case she needs a hand Can I use your hand? You- you looking for something in there. Oh god. Is it also zooming in is it? I don’t think so no it’s not okay FUCKING MONIKA GHFGHFGHH HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM She never puts my stuff back at the right spot is that the first curse? I think so. What’s the point of keeping a collection organized if someone else is just gonna mess it up! Natsuki slides a bunch of stacked books and boxes across the shelf- This game going off the rails real fuckin’ quick dude! Also maybe we should talk about that little episode that you just had Ma- Manga, manga? you read manga right? A H Some… times… Manga is one of those things where you can’t admit You really into it until you figure out where the other person stands. Oh my god. She stands in front of me How did you know anyway-? I heard you bring up at some point. Besides kind of written in your face ah-! Where’s the mirror? What’s a…? My god it says parfait girls! Right on my face! What’s that supposed to mean? Oh I see There’s a lone volume of manga messy stacks of various books on the side of one of the shelves Curious I pull it out of the stack Theere it is~! Natsuki snatches it out of my hand she then turns to a box of manga and slips the volume right into the middle the rest Aaaaah- much better! Seeing a box in with one book missing is probably the most irritating feeling in the world! I know that feel, haha- also like when your friend dies That’s that’s weird too right! #Iknowthatfeel okay I got a closer look at the box set she’s admiring p-p-p-potatoes! :O It’s a series I’ve never heard of in my life, that probably means It’s either way out of my demographic or it’s simply terrible.. so you are caught in a time loop huh I see you are right because like, I mean you were talking about parfait girls a length a Before with her was I? yeah, that’s that’s the manga you guys were reading together Oh, yeah, o h b o y, If you’re gonna judge You could do it to the glass on the door! she points to the classroom door. you can talk to the booty cause the hands off duty! Hey, I wasn’t judging or anything- I didn’t even say anything It was the tone of your voice! but I tell you one thing “FriendArin” Consider this a lesson straight from- DONT JUDGE A BO OOo KKKKkk kk Oh my god In fact-Natsuki pulls out the first volume of Parfait Girls from the box I’m gonna show you exactly why! she shoves the book right into my hands Uhhh… I stare at the cover. It features four girls at colorful attire striking animated feminine poses! It’s exceedingly moe. I don’t understand what that means moe, it means like really cute. Okay like overly cute got it Yeah, don’t just stand there- Dance! I just pulls out a gun and start shooting your feet Go on! Natsuki grabs my arm and pulls me out of the closet, If only it were that easy… I’M GAAAAAAAY!!! She then takes a seat against the wall beneath the windowsills she pats on the ground next to her signaling me to sit there It creates a giant crevice in the ground. She’s much more powerful than I thought she was. wouldn’t chairs be more comfortable? I take my seat. chairs wouldn’t work! I just want to grab everyone by the shoulders in this game and shake em and be like SAYORI’S DEAD! WHY DON’T YOU ACKNOWLEDGE IT?! WHAT’S HAPPENING!?!? NOBODY’S ACKNOWLEDGING IT?!?! We can’t read at the same time like that. Oh, why is that I guess It’s easy to be close together like this EHHHHH D-D-D-Don’t just say it like that! you make me feel weird about it… Natsuki crosses her arms and scooches an inch away from me No, don’t scooch away. Sorry… scooch towards I didn’t exactly expect to be sitting this close to her either not that I could say it’s a particularly bad thing. I open the book. It’s only a few seconds before Natsuki once again inches closer Reclaiming the additional space while she hopes I won’t notice I whip out my scooch And then I scooch it closer to her scooch WE SCOOCH ALL NIGHT!!!! WE’RE SCOOCHING!!! Oh God, the room’s turning again. I could feel her appearing Oh is it. Yeah? I think so I think so. I don’t know now. I’m all fucked up. No It’s not no. It’s not. Oh boy this I can feel her peering over my shoulder much more eager to begin reading than I am Wow how long has it been since I read the beginning? HUHH You don’t go back and flip through the older volumes every now and then? Not really, maybe sometimes after iv’e already finished the series She like talking about like what’s happening right now. I don’t fucking know. There’s a lot of that shit actually because watching the episodes back After knowing what happens is such a different experience than playing it blind the first time. Really? Oh, they dropped tons of like little weird hints I also noticed that fucking Yuri is really into knives which You know seemed cute and innocent kind of like a oh that She’s the goth girl, and she’s in the knives and shit, and now I’m like. I don’t know. I don’t know about all this-Hey you paying attention? Uhh Am but nothing really nothing’s really happened yet So I can’t talk at the same time looks like it’s about a bunch of friends in high school typical slice of life affair I think I grew out of these since it’s rare for the variety to be entertaining enough to make up for the lack of plot Geez, just- damn. tear her down… Are you sure this isn’t boring for you? It’s not! Even though you’re just watching me read IM NOT! WHAATT?!! I-F- I’m fine with that If you say so. Good talk! how did you get your hair band to do that in your bangs? How did you do that? Like we’ve discussed this before it looks like three different sedimentary layers of a photograph that we’re like turned in different ways like her hair is just a Just like three different hairstyles pasted it on top of each other. Oh, I see you know what I mean I know exactly what you mean. it’s very weird (It’s anime hair just look at pretty much any Danganronpa character if you think this is weird) (
