Something strange happened when I helped Mashiro after being dumped by Sorane, I was wandering aimlessly on my way to school.
I couldn’t remember any of the scenery around me, that’s how mentally ill I was. However, I noticed a crowd of people at the school’s main gate. What a distraction… I can’t leave school. The person who caught my eye was another childhood friend of mine, Mashiro. She is a gyaru who has blond hair and wears a knit cardigan loosely even though it’s spring. If anything, she stands out from the rest of the class.
It’s the same with me, though. However, Mashiro seems to be in trouble.
“You’re a pervert, YOU’RE A PERVERT!” (Mashiro)
That sounds like a pretty bad rant. Wait a second… That’s not Japanese… it’s Russian, a language I know very well. I guess she was caught in a pick-up game and said something outrageous. It would be bad if she spoke Japanese, so she’s probably speaking Russian. But why can Mashiro speak Russian?
“You’re talking too much, Mashiro.” (Yuma)
I chided her in Russian. For a moment, she looked at me with a surprised look on her face.
The pick-up artist was angry while holding Mashiro’s arm. Unluckily, the teacher is nowhere near here, because this school is usually in a safe area and the teacher checks the discipline of the students in the mornings but not at dismissal. Besides, there didn’t seem to be any strong-willed boys who were willing to give their opinion to the muscular pick-up artist.
(It’s best not to get involved, right?)
I decided immediately. She’s a cute gal, someone else will see the situation and help her. I don’t like to rough things up.
“Yu-Yuma, can please you help me?” (Mashiro)
“Huh!? Me?” (Yuma)
I was surprised. When Mashiro shook off the pick-up artist’s hand and came straight to me, asking for my help. It was hard to leave her alone. It would make me look like a heartless person.
“Well, do I have to help you?” (Yuma)
“Uh, yes, please!? Those guys are famous delinquents around here and they fight so hard that no one can talk to them!” (Mashiro)
You want me to play along with them?
“Okay, I’ll do something. Leave it to me.” (Yuma)
I reluctantly decided to help Shinju. Well, it’s not like we don’t know each other, so what can I do? But why does Mashiro know Russian? Well, maybe the rough stuff will take my mind off things now…
“What the hell are you talking about? Are you trying to pick a fight with us? You got some nerve, don’t you?” (Thug 1)
“Huh! He’s a f*****g idiot.” (Thug 2)
“You don’t know what you’re doing.” (Thug 3)
The half-smile on the faces of the delinquent pick-up artists made me want to kill them. I’ve just been dumped. It can’t be helped, can it?
“Can’t you just let this girl go? I’ll be in trouble if you don’t. I’m an inconspicuous boy with glasses, so I’d rather avoid rough stuff. You can tell by looking at me that I’m inconspicuous, can’t you? Forgive me for having glasses.” (Yuma)
“Forgive me because it’s the glasses? You can see that it’s inconspicuous? What’s that…?” (Thug 1)
“Isn’t this guy crazy? He fights with us, and now he wants our forgiveness?” (Thug 2)
“Can’t we just work this out peacefully?” (Yuma)
“No, we can’t!” (All 3 thugs)
As the three of them declared that they had no choice but to be hostile, the biggest man stepped forward.
“I’m Takano, the invincible chief brawler of West High School. I’ll teach you the essence of fighting. I will beat you to a pulp!” (Takano)
I was confused… Is there such a thing as a gang leader nowadays? Besides, if you start a fight in a place like this, the adults will notice and will call for help. Are you serious? Has he ever really been in a fight?
He thrusts his punches into the air as if he was shadow boxing.
Yeah, he’s definitely an amateur. Besides, there’s no one with a wooden sword or a stick… can’t you just punch normally?
“I’ll put all my strength into one of my best punches!” (Takano)
The chief brawler hit me with an exaggerated motion. I took it to the face in silence.
“It hurts. You’re the ones who made the first punch!” (Yuma)
As soon as I said that, ensuring self-defense, the chief brawler’s body flew up in the air. Then he fell hard to the ground. I’m sure he doesn’t know how to catch himself or anything, so I’ll use a loose angle.
“Hey! What the hell did you do? You’re a coward!” (Takano)
Huh? Coward? I don’t think it’s cowardly. It’s just judo. In fact, I think it’s cowardly to fight a three-on-one fight.
“This guy’s a real piece of work, isn’t he? That’s about it for having fun. I’ll show you how powerful my fists really are!” (Takano)
“No, let’s just talk it out if possible, okay?” (Yuma)
“Hmm… I didn’t think this would make me so angry that I would have to take out my brass knuckles… I was planning to forgive you with a slight injury, but… I’ll have you miserably injured. Eat the power of the brass knuckles!?” (Bancho)1
Bancho Meriken said so and suddenly hit me with a violent weapon, brass knuckles. It looks like it’s weak even with armor.
I quickly dodged him.
Who is this person? Also what are you going to do with that weapon?
The Meriken Bancho tried to hit me again, but it looked too weak, so I was just going to block it with my hand. But…
“Stop! No! Yuma, run!” (Mashiro)
Huh? Can I run? Who’s going to help me if I run?
Kenka Bancho, Meriken Bancho and another… Who is this person? I’m curious. The three attack me at the same time and I dodged them with ease.
If I don’t get hit, then there’s nothing I can do about it, right?
After that, they pulled out various weapons that I didn’t know about, but I dodged them all. At this point, I don’t feel like fighting seriously because of how weak they are.
“Huh… What’s with this guy………? I can’t help it. I didn’t want to do this! My final mystery! Guren style karate mystery! Be prepared for having nothing but pieces of cells!!” (Takano)
No, what’s the mystery of not leaving a piece of cells! Besides, that’s just a murder!
“Kuren-ryu fist tactic, my fist is steel, my fists are invincible!” (Takano)
“No, can’t you wait?” (Yuma)
The pick-up artist’s fist fighting technique… Maybe it’s an ancient martial art, perhaps he can take in chi by putting it on his words and raise his physical ability several times… I’m raising an eyebrow, but I’m not stupid enough to wait, am I?
I quickly slipped into the chest of the martial artist and planted an Ootai Gari, sending the man flying through the air. 2
“You’re kidding right?, Damn it, even my father was never able to hit me…” (Takano)
You’re kidding, right….? You’ve never been hit by your father… I’ve never been hit by my father either… But I’m the type of person who doesn’t do wrong things.
“Oh, you will remember me, won’t you?” (Thug 3????)
“I’ll take care of this fight another day! (Takano?)
“Be careful in the dark!” (Bancho?)
As the three of them with no personalities ran away, leaving behind a discarded line, I caught sight of Mashiro with pure white eyes
“Wow, this really isn’t a dream or a misunderstanding it’s really Yuma! I’m glad that you helped me, so much that I want to kiss you right now! Take advantage of this opportunity to ask to go out with me, to get married and become my lover or be in a relationship with me It’s not like I’m thinking it though!” (Mashiro)
What are you talking about Mashiro? In such a short while, Mashiro had grown into a fine choroin.
1- I’m like 50/50 on this it could be a reference to a video game or manga or I might be overthinking this but I genuinely am confused on this part
2- It’s a type of Judo move
ALSO HUMONGOUS NOTE- the title “pure white” can be translated to Mashiro and the other way around but from now on it will only be Mashiro since it might get confusing reading pure white every sentence or two
Well first off I would like to apologize for the delay since this was my first time translating and I editing by myself so all I can say is sorry and I will have a schedule of the uploads soon but other than the boring stuff this chapter was something I guess you could say it gave me a lot of chunni vibes of like middle school kids using powers and such for fights which was painful to translate mentally and emotionally but other than that if there are any mistakes or errors in the chapter please comment them down below and also I hope you enjoyed chapter 2 of the series
