Suterareta Yuusha no Eiyuutan (3-17)

Story 3-17 『Making A Mistake, Apologizing, Starting』

“Yeah, it’s good… isn’t it.” (Tamaki)

I murmured my thoughts on the lunch I made while closing the lid of the lunchbox. I laid it on top of the other lunchbox that was once again left unopened.

Two weeks had already passed since that day.

I was disregarded by him in the classroom even if I talked to him since the first week. Nevertheless, he immediately left the classroom once lunch break started since the start of the week, coming back just before it ended. After school Katsuragi’s time was stolen by Samejima.

Due to that, there hasn’t been any development with him.

As I didn’t even interact with him anymore, it seems that our classmates took it all as a temporary delusion. They took it as me fulfilling my role as committee chairman.

Therefore, nothing in particular happened.

Katsuragi was still bullied daily. I feigned friendliness and played the honor student every day.

As it was now, nothing had changed.

Thinking about it was troublesome so he gave up and『Resigned』. He consented, and accepted the status quo as it was.

It was difficult to sway the hearts of those who had『Resigned』. So, I could do nothing but slowly make progress by waiting for him on the rooftop during lunch breaks and after school.

I looked at my wristwatch, it was five minutes until the start of fifth period’s class. I would be late if I don’t return soon.

“Because he didn’t come today as well… another X.” (Tamaki)

I took a small notebook out of my pocket and put filled the column for today’s date.

This is the Katsuragi observation diary that I’ve had since that day.

I was once again reminded that I did not know anything about Katsuragi since coming to this world.

Though I thought about doing it because I was near him, above all I just wanted to know more about him.

Shuri-chan already seemed to know. She’d been with him longer than me. So, Shuri-chan had an advantage.

I had to make an effort to make up the difference.

“… I wonder what Katsuragi is doing…” (Tamaki)

I can’t see a way out.

Being in such a state, I sighed in disappointment at my inability to break down my worthlessness.

◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆

December 8       XX

Katsuragi didn’t eat his lunch box today. There was definitely always a meal for him. I think Samejima stamped on everything. Sure enough, it was thrown into the trash. However, after Samejima was satisfied and left him, he took out some spare bread. He laughed in spite of himself.

December 9       XX

December 10     XX

December 12     XX

December 17     XX

Samejima’s bullying was even more terrible today. However, I didn’t stop him. Saying that, I wasn’t able to stop him. I was irritated. I wonder if there’s something I can do?

December 20     XX

Recently, I’ve felt tired. My body is sluggish. When I measured my temperature I had a low-grade fever. I thought it was safe if it was just this much and though I went to school, I hit my limit just before lunch break. I fell over because of that. I had to break my promise to Katsuragi for the first time. Now, I don’t know what I should do anymore.

December 21     XX

I went to school after my temperature recovered and there was a loose-leafed notebook filled with information from yesterday’s lesson on top of my clean desk… I wonder if it was Nanami? I asked and it seemed that’s how it was, though I have to say… I wonder if she was agitated. Anyways, she has my gratitude. Katsuragi also didn’t come to the roof today.

December 22 —X

◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆

“… It’s no good…” (Tamaki)

Flipping through the pages, I closed the notebook and put an X through today’s date.

Another month.

I wondered how much time passed in the real world. I don’t mean that I think that an entire month has passed… but Katsuragi may encounter Samejima and fight him by himself.

That’s no good. It’s too dangerous.

I have to clear this and go to him soon…

… But, I wonder if I can do it…

“Yui-chan!” (—)

“… Eh-, ah, yes!” (Tamaki)

My consciousness returned with my name being unexpectedly called.

The perpetrator was Nanami, who had called out anxiously.

“Are you alright, Yui-chan? You didn’t answer after I called you many times…” (Nanami)

“Y-yeah. Sorry. I was in a bit of a daze.” (Tamaki)

“Is it from the fever? It’s been so cold out every day. Your temperature just returned to normal too.” (Nanami)

“No, it’s not like that. It’s alright, I’m fine.” (Tamaki)

“If so that’s good…” (Nanami)

“Other than that, Nanami. Did you have anything to talk to me about?” (Tamaki)

“Ah, yeah. There will be a gathering of the committee chairman from each class after school today for a conference. The location is the multipurpose room on the third floor so I came early to tell you.” (Nanami)

“Got it. Thanks for the message.” (Tamaki)

“Yui-chan, where are you going?” (Nanami)

“The staff room?” (Tamaki)

“But, the teacher is coming, and class will start…” (Nanami)

“It’s fine, it’s fine. It’s homeroom class, after all. And the one I have business with is our homeroom teacher.” (Tamaki) 

“… What business?” (Nanami)

“Though I had asked Shuri-chan to openly hear me out… I want to reduce the burden on her a bit… I guess.” (Tamaki)

I had talked with Shuri-chan about my feelings concerning Katsuragi before.

After that, she’s been having a good time hanging out with Samejima after school before returning to the dormitory. Shuri-chan said it was killing two birds with one stone.

Though I advised her to stop it with Samejima, she refuted saying that she wouldn’t recognize Katsuragi either.

Because of that, the amount of after school bullying has decreased to once per week.

So I was thinking about changing the meetings to be held in this classroom. That way Samejima would be forced to leave the classroom.

“Well, I’ll be off then.” (Tamaki)

I said so and left the classroom.

At that time, Nanami’s eyes gaze shifted to Katsuragi as she seemed to decide something.

◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇

“Then the meeting is adjourned. Bow.” (—)

『Thank you very much.』(All)

The committee said their farewell and broke up. The contents of the agenda was Oginomiya Academy’s school event. Each class would hold a play to make their last memories of the school year. It would be before spring break began. The best works would be used as PR videos for freshmen.

Therefore, screenplays will be submitted one week from now. The sets must be finished within two months, a fast pace. Though it was sandwiched by winter break, it was a well-known fact that it wasn’t enough time. It puts a lot of responsibility on the committee chairmen, thinking about it was depressing.

“Haa…” (Tamaki)

I put the documents away into my bag—and incidentally, I noticed that one lunch box was missing.

“Did I leave it on the rooftop…?” (Tamaki)

That fact further exacerbated my mood. Recently, opening the rooftop door was troubling.

It was scary.

Katsuragi wouldn’t be there. However, the empty world spread out.

I wanted to『Give Up』. [TN: Same kanji used earlier for Katsuragi’s “Resigned”]

However, I would not cross that line.

Fear was born during that interval.

“… It’s no use hesitating!” (Tamaki)

I turned the doorknob.

The door was less than two meters tall but had a presence many times larger… though that was impossible.

“… I will believe in you.” (Tamaki)

*Gachari*. An inorganic sound rang as the door opened.

My eyelids that were shut on reflex slowly opened.

Looking at the place where I always sat eating, there was a visitor.

“Katsu…ragi…” (Tamaki)

It was really Katsuragi.

Muffler wrapped around his neck, he let out a white breath, and was rubbing his hands together to warm them from the friction.

“… Ah, you finally came.” (Daichi)

Having noticed me, Katsuragi wrapped the lunchbox and carried it lying flat on its side and walked over to me.

Eh? Eh?

“K-Katsuragi. Why?” (Tamaki)

“Why you ask… that’s…” (Daichi)

Katsuragi was embarrassed and scratched his cheek. He wouldn’t look at me.

“It’s… how should I put it… I was acting like a child… I was at fault. That time, I yelled at you.” (Daichi)

“Ah, n-no. I was insensitive.” (Tamaki)

“That’s not it. At that time, I… you were accurate… I was frustrated. Because of that I vented my anger at you… I’m very sorry.” (Daichi)

“N-no, I don’t particularly mind.” (Tamaki)

“Still, I want to apologize. And I have another favor to ask.” (Daichi)

Katsuragi bowed. He conveyed how serious he was in one go.

“I want to defeat him. However, I know that I have no strength. I’ll make an effort. I’ll do anything. Nothing could be more painful than right now! So, please help me! Please!” (Daichi)

… Eh? Eh? Eh?

W-what should I do?

For my part, I wasn’t worried at all. Or should I say, I wouldn’t do something like ask what caused him to change.

It was nice to be relied on by Katsuragi, I didn’t know that I had such a desire.

He said something like that because he trusted me… ah, what to do?

It felt like crying.

“Ka-Katsuragi!” (Tamaki)

“W-what?” (Daichi)

“I’ve always waited here for Katsuragi!” (Tamaki)

“That was really my bad. I was stubborn… sorry.” (Daichi)

“Day after day, it was amazingly cold!” (Tamaki)

“Oh, was it?” (Daichi)

“Therefore!” (Tamaki)

I suddenly extended both of my hands, and asked him while putting on as calm of an expression as I could.

“… Therefore… because of that, right now, would you warm me up…?” (Tamaki)

My face was hot. It was definitely bright red. I was embarrassed so I didn’t want him to see me.

“L-let me see… is this okay?” (Daichi)

“… Yeah. Hurry up, it’s cold.” (Tamaki)

“O-oh…” (Daichi)

Katsuragi timidly stretched out one of his arm and wrapped it around my waist. I leaned on him.

Warm. I was relieved. I wanted to stay like this.

“T-Tamaki?” (Daichi)

… He called me by name for the first time. I couldn’t stop smiling.

“A-are you alright?” (Daichi)

“Why are you worried?” (Tamaki)

“It’s… the first time I’ve done something like this… saying those things, it’s embarrassing.” (Daichi)

“… I’m happy. With that, I’m Katsuragi’s first.” (Tamaki)

“… Tamaki. You should absolutely never say that to a man you know? Because most will become a wolf.” (Daichi)

“Though I don’t understand well… got it.” (Tamaki)

I wonder why Katsuragi said to knock it off. Next time I’ll be careful.

“… By the way, Tamaki. Isn’t this enough?” (Daichi)

“… … … Not a chance.” (Tamaki)

“… Is that so? … Let me know when you are satisfied so we can continue.” (Daichi)

“O~kay…” (Tamaki)

I squeezed him with my arms tighter.

After ten minutes passed, I was finally satisfied and we separated.

    1. If you have any experience with visual novels, you would immediately retract this statement. If anything, she has just passed the common route and is just now starting on his route. She is just now walking up to the starting line.

  1. Tamaki just needs to keep doing pretty much exactly what she’s doing and the “route cleared” flag is just about inevitable.

  2. Waifu’s Fantasy Otome game Simulator has reached the flag for the next event. Auto Saving, Please wait…

    File Saved. Continuing to next Scene Event: LOADING…

  3. Tamaki is really redeeming herself huh… Thanks for all the time and effort put in this chapter!

  4. Thanks for the chapter. So anyone beside me currently doubt Daichi behaviour this chapter? There is his attitude and personality can change this much in just a few days.

      1. Dude wtf xD she got fever from being waiting at the top of the scool in winter season…i dont know about you but i would have felt worst than a friggin scumbag…at least i would have tried to stop her from waiting there….but after such display…dam i would totally marry someone who had that patience after being bitchslapped xD

    1. Well, I concur that there is a foreboding sense in a way. It may be nothing or it may be a cruel trap by the bullies. Nanami has noticed something wrong with Tamaki, in relation with Katsuragi. Maybe she gave him a push towards Tamaki or else it could lead to a darker path… One I would not want to see our characters thread on to.

    1. This is not rom-com you insensitive douche.

      This is just pure outright romance! Notice the difference.

      1. truth to be told the place is already decided by daichi
        1 shuri in the right
        2 tamaki in the left
        3 fuuko in the front
        4 nanami in the back

                    1. Hmm. Quick introduction then: Shuri, Tamaki, Nanami were all three close friends. Tamaki and Shuri bullied Daichi, Nanami didn’t want to and only watched. Shuri was abandoned by Nanami and Tamaki in the dungeon (I believe in that chapter I incorrectly TLed her name as a statement ‘seven beauties’ or something, which I later corrected). She then isn’t mentioned until we switched PoV to Hayase (Which is known as Fuuko in the dialogue info I give) in Volume 2.

                      In total:

                      Katsuragi Daichi (Daichi)
                      Tamaki Yuina (Tamaki)
                      –Something– Shuri (Shuri)
                      Hayase Fuuko (Fuuko)
                      Sajima Nanami (Nanami)

                      I hope that helps =(

              1. nanami is one of shuri and tamaki’s friend, a.k.a the trio

                she is in saejima’s party now…. and she help tamaki in her conquest

                  1. you don’t have to… just read vol 3 ch 18 for her in-game appearance

                    and you just have to wait coz vol 4 will touch more about her….. and her conquest

                    1. well I don’t know when the next chapter will be release, but I guess I will wait, at least for the moment. hmm I figured she will be included in vol 4 cause I really haven’t heard anything about her.

  5. Oh yeah! Thanks for the Chapter!

    you would not believe how long I waited for this. 😀

  6. I kinda doubt Daichi’s action here. Well thanks for the translation btw. And nice move MvP Tamaki XP

  7. Thanks for translations
    Daichi really become good character comparing to others web novel MC.
    Rudeus= what happen with his resolve to go all out for everything, he still a coward and need got pushed to corner.
    Hajime= I am so edgy and cool look my asspull weapons, I don’t give any shit only my goal.
    Shield= I hate everything, I’m not believing anyone. The Bitch so evil to me, let’s keep bullying her for revenge but not kill. I’m sure she not gonna revenge back.

  8. Shuri acting like one of daichi’s bullies irritated me but tamaki’s determination and kindness is what made him open up to her in
    the long run So i wonder how she will act around the current Daichi

  9. Oh that Nanami doing something behind the scenes… Still it feels odd that he suddenly wants help. There’s a lack of continuity not in the story but something else. It’s like the feeling that something isn’t right, something’s missing but don’t know what.

      1. I knew there was something that’s missing. Here’s to waiting for the next release. 😀

  10. This is just a guess so don’t kill me! *not that you can*

    I think when Tamaki left for the meeting, Nanami talked to Daichi & knocked some sense into him.

    That’s why Daichi said sorry. Sorry that he was acting like a child & that he was the one at fault. But that’s just my guess.

    but then again, there could be something like a conspiracy with Nanami, She did appear on Shuri’s trial as well.

      1. nope you’re right there

        and she did appear in all of the trial since in the player’s memory she exist after all (since the game is created from the three’s memories)

  11. By the way, is this a complete novel? How many raw chapter are there?
    Or do you translate them as they come out?

    1. Not complete, there are 30 something left to translate. I’ll be translating them as they are released when I catch up to current

      1. I see, and is there a shedule on how many updates the raw gets per week/month/year, or is it completely random?

    1. probably nanami, tamaki and shuri’s friend, currently in hero’s party as a healer.

      thanks for the chapter ziru~

    1. what you see is what you get brah. 🙂

      Besides the font looks okay. at least its better than some websites I’ve been reading (not gonna say anyone’s name as they might be reading here as well ) XD
