Chapter 15: The Power of Kuzuo Kuzuhara
Translated and Edited by: ynlucca.
Gaming part 2 lol.
“Well then, I’ll call it a win for the student council and reject your club’s application for extra budget,” I said, taking my headset off and standing up from my seat.
“Wait, wait, wait—!” She grabbed my arms tightly.
“What is it?”
“That was a fluke! You can’t possibly measure your true strength with a lucky shot like that! I demand a rematch at medium range, with something other than a sniper rifle!”
“Hah, I don’t mind, but…”
After her complaining, we did 1v1’s with assault rifles, submachine guns, shotguns—everything. I was challenged with the whole arsenal by the club members, and I won every single one of them.
Shirayuki rolled her eyes.
“T-This can’t be happening…” Yuzuki-senpai shuddered.
My photographic memory records everything I see and engraves it into my memory. Therefore, by seeing Shirayuki and Yuzuki-senpai’s 1v1 that many times, I picked up enough material.
I memorized my senior’s habits—attacking, dodging, even the usual recoil pattern of every gun she used. With that, I could always put a bullet up her character’s skull.
“C-Cheater! You’re a hacker, the enemy of all machines!” Tears rolled down Yuzuki-senpai’s face while she cursed as much as she could.
“Nope. Every piece of equipment I’ve used came from this club,” It was frankly obvious I haven’t installed any cheats, nor used any modified peripherals.
“Ngh… Mrgh…” As my senior lost her words, trembling in frustration, a member of the Computer Research Club gently pulled her sleeve.
“Y-Yuzu-senpai, look at this… His username, could it be?”
“What about his userna—Kz?!” Astonished, her eyes opened wide. “M-Maybe Kuzu-kun is… From the winner team of the first GR Cup, ‘Deadbeat Reaper’. So you’re the Kz!”
“Ah… Well, yeah,” I’m pretty sure that’d the tournament I was forced to participate by an acquaintance, a famous distributor… He begged me for a ‘lifetime favor’.
Soon after, the members of the Computer Research Club began to get elated.
“No way! The Kz is in our school?!”
“No wonder you’re so strong…”
“C-Could you please shake my hand…?”
The room was bustling with their excitement.
“Stop! Don’t give away his identity! As a proud member of the CRC club, and Kz’s fangirl, I say—Please calm down!”
“S-Sorry…” The members of the CRC apologized.
Yuzuki-senpai wasted no time in demonstrating her charisma, leadership skills, and successfully reigned in the chaos.
“Kz-san, no, Kuzu-kun. The CRC club is composed only of my closes friends, so don’t worry about your identity being exposed. Really, don’t.”
“Thanks for that.”
I’ve only used the nickname Kz once, at the GR tournament. That’s why I don’t believe my identity being exposed would pose a problem… That said, I’ll be sure to thank her for her care.
“By the way… There’s one thing I’d like to discuss with you…”
“I won’t give you more budget.”
“No, not that… Would you be interested in doing a collab with me in the ‘Yuzurin channel’?”
“I’m sorry, but I’m not a pro,” I politely declined her offer and left the CRC clubroom with Shirayuki.
On our way back to our office—
“—Kuzuhara-kun, you saved my life today. Thank you very much.”
“Yeah, don’t mind it,” I didn’t do anything big, just played a bit of APE.
“I’ve never been in contact with these ‘Pee Cee Games’ until now… It’s honestly very interesting.”
“Speaking of which, you were quite absorbed in your matches. In the last match, you looked like you were about to bury your fist in her face—”
“—Please forget that,” her face reddened a bit. Due to her pale-white skin, it was very easy to tell when she was embarrassed.
“C-Cough… Well, I mean… Would you like to play with me sometime if you get the chance? A game, I mean.”
“… Ah, that would be nice.”
Thus Shirayuki and I made a promise to play a game together someday.

Of course he’s some famous gamer. I hope this trend doesn’t keep going throughout the whole story but I know that it will.

Also if this dude is so amazing at everything why doesn’t he become a professional gamer or something. Funny how every broke genius in Japanese wns is too dumb to make money outside of a part time job.

Extremely fair point. Honestly, didn’t know the novel would turn out like this, since the first few chapters were okay.

I like how photographic memory translates into being able to master a reflex-based game instantly.
