I didn’t expect Gindou Kohaku to fall asleep during class… It’s rare to see that. Maybe she was tired?
I’m not sure of the reason, but girls have various things going on, I guess? Right now, during lunch break, I’m thinking about how to spend my time when Sasamoto, the guy with glasses from the front row, brings along a certain male student. This guy is…
“Akito wants to talk to you.”
Sarutobi Akito, also known as “Saru,” is in the same class and is a character with quite a unique personality in “Masou Shoujo.”
“Lord Izayoi, I humbly request your assistance,”
He has a unique way of speaking like this. Of course, I don’t dislike it.
“I am working together with my online friends to create a game. We have a Gal and a horror game, and I would like you, Lord Izayoi, to play them and hear your impressions.”
“I thought that incorporating the opinions of a real-life harem protagonist like yourself would further enhance the quality of the game.”
“It’s not like I have a harem… Why a horror game?”
“Lord Izayoi mentioned being weak against scary things, so I thought your insights would be valuable.”
“I see… A Gal game is fine, but… I’m not too keen on horror games. Gal game is fine, though.”
“Thank you very much.”
He really doesn’t have to bow so deeply… As for horror games…
“For now, raise your head. I’ll give it a try.”
“Ooh, thank you very much. The Gal game has quite a few daring scenes, so there’s no doubt you’ll be satisfied.”
“Is that so?”
“But it will take some time before it’s completed. I’ll let you know when the time comes.”
“Thank you for your kind consideration.”
Akito bows deeply. He must be putting a lot of effort into it. I could sense his determination to make it better.
“Then, let’s go to the cafeteria. How about you, Akito?”
“Yeah, let’s do that since we’re here.”
“I’ll join you.”
“Yeah, by the way, you speak politely to girls like Kohaku-chan, but you use casual language with guys.”
“Oh, yeah, I tend to get nervous when talking to girls, so I end up using polite language.”
“I know how that feels.”
We head towards the cafeteria.
I don’t feel like playing a horror game alone…
“So, what’s this about?”
“Yeah, come on, tell us already.”
As Kohaku-chan, Karen-chan, and I order our food and take our seats in the cafeteria, Karen-chan, who called us here, gets to the point.
She said she wanted to talk while having a meal. She also invited Kohaku-chan. Isn’t this the first time the three of us are eating together in the cafeteria?
“I’ve been thinking. Currently, I feel like I lack femininity.”
“H-haa? I-I see”
“That’s why I want to enhance my femininity. I want both of you to cooperate with me.”
“I’m fine with it, but what about Kohaku-chan?”
“…Though I don’t want to do something that could be seen as throwing salt at my enemies, it could be a valuable experience for me too. It might even help me reevaluate myself… So I’ll cooperate.”
“What exactly do you have in mind?”
“…I haven’t decided yet…”
It seems Karen-chan has only decided to do it but hasn’t figured out what to do specifically. It’s fast for her to take action on the same day she declares a change…
Just like someone I know…
“Well, how about learning about cooking, fashion, gestures that make guys happy, or even improving your way of speaking? That sounds good, right?”
“That’s right, Moegi. Nice suggestion.”
“Ehehe, it’s not that great. So, what should we do first?”
“I don’t want to waste even a little bit of time. Let’s start with something I can do right here in this cafeteria.”
“Do you have anything in mind?”
“Well, in that case, how about answering the questions I come up with? You can give cute answers that girls would say, and in some cases, it can even help improve your sense of humor. Plus, by touching on various topics, your repertoire for conversations will increase. It’s a win-win situation.”
“That sounds good. Let’s give it a try right away.”
“I’d love to participate as well.”
“Shall we have a little competition? Let’s see who can come up with the most fantastic answers.”
“Sure. Let’s do it.”
I kind of like this atmosphere, like a girls’ gathering… Maybe we can do this regularly and have some fun with these two… That would be nice!
“Here’s the question: ‘You recently got a boyfriend. What do you think is necessary to have a long and happy relationship with him?'”
“Well, let me think…”
“It’s actually quite challenging to think about…”
The two of them cross their arms and start thinking. Maybe Kohaku-chan should avoid crossing her arms… It emphasizes her… chest.
“Alright! I’ve got it!”
Kohaku-chan energetically raises her hand, as if she came up with something extraordinary…
Wait, this isn’t a comedy show. But it looks fun, so I’ll play along…
“What do you think is necessary to have a long and happy relationship with your boyfriend?”
“Love and an established fact.”
“That’s heavy! It’s really not off the mark, but you shouldn’t say that. Love isn’t cute at all, but both you and Kohaku-chan are adorable, so it’s okay. Overall score: 95 points.”
“I guess I shouldn’t mention an established fact… Lesson learned.”
“I’m ready too.”
“Alright, Karen-chan. If you recently got a boyfriend, what do you think you should do to have a harmonious and lasting relationship with him?”
“Love and express our true feelings to each other.”
“A perfect score!”
“I was able to come up with this answer thanks to Izayoi.”
“Kuu, I lost by five points… Well done, Karen-senpai.”
I want to keep watching these two in this pleasant atmosphere, but I have to come up with the next question…
“Let’s continue with the previous theme a bit. If you were to turn your life with your boyfriend into a novel title, what would it be?”
“Kohaku-chan, please go ahead.”
“Until I Became One with Him.”
“Oh, that’s adorable! Full marks!”
“I’ve got one too.”
“Now, Karen-chan, it’s your turn!”
“The Junior who Suddenly Approached Me Turned Out to Be an Amazing Guy, He Helped Solve My Family Issues, and Before I Knew It, I Became the Official Fiancée Approved by My Family.”
“Isn’t that too long!? The title gives away the entire content. But still, I’d give it a… 97…”
“Crap, I lost by three points…”
“Sometimes simplicity is good.”
“I see. It was a learning experience.”
Since this gathering feels special, I want to give it a name… Hmm, what could be good? Let’s ask the two of them.
“I was thinking of giving this group a name. What do you two think?”
“I think it’s a good idea. Let’s come up with a name.”
“I agree… How about ‘Women Enhancement Committee’?”
“Oh, that’s great!”
“I think it’s good too.”
With that, the three of us form a new committee. Just as the lunch break is coming to an end, the bell rings. I stand up from my seat, tray in hand, to clean up.
“The end-of-term exams are coming soon, aren’t they?”
“Yes, they are. I want to have a study session, but I don’t want to force anyone… But I do want Izayoi to get good grades.”
“That’s right. How about inviting him in a relaxed manner starting the day after tomorrow?”
“Yes, that sounds good…”
These two really get along well… They seem to have a similar essence…
And because they both like the same person, they can empathize with each other even more…
It’s nice… I wonder if the day will come when I understand that feeling too…
After a long time, I’m walking home alone. Recently, it felt like a festival with the two of them always around, but now it suddenly feels lonely, like a ghost town.
The appearance of the “Demon Tribe” and the battles of the “Masou Shoujo” take place in the second half of summer vacation. It’s still July, so there’s time…
In the first place, this work has its fair share of seriousness, but there are also many heartwarming moments. Although the “if story” was abnormal, the original intention was to be filled with heartwarming moments.
As I walk alone…
“Nya nya nya nya! You are the human who defeated the ‘Yumekui’!”
I turned around and saw a normal sized cat with three tails. …… This guy also appeared in …… “Story”. A rarely seen occult and mischievous specter.
In the “story,” there was a situation where the youkai had the power to turn people into cats, and it caused trouble when Gindou Kohaku was turned into a cat. However, that happened after gaining the power of the “Masou Shoujo,” so it shouldn’t appear here…
“I heard that there was a human who defeated the sealed ‘Yumekui,’ but I have mixed feelings about it nya…”
“The ‘Yumekui’ is a dangerous youkai even among us youkai. It was about time for it to appear, so everyone was getting anxious. I’m grateful nya.”
“I don’t mind, though.”
I see. Nekoarashi came to check because I defeated the ‘Yumekui’… Occult-loving youkai like this usually don’t show interest in ordinary humans. Gindou Kohaku was turned into a cat because she was a special human with the power of the “Masou Shoujo.” So, the fact that this cat is interested in me… Does that mean I’m not normal anymore in the youkai world? Well, in the human world, I’m still normal.
“As thanks, I’ll turn you into a cat nya.”
“I’ll pass. Oi, stop!”
“No can do nya.”
Light pours out from Nekoarashi. When I close and open my eyes because of the dazzling light… my field of view is lower than usual.
No way!!! My school uniform and belongings have fallen to the ground. This transformation won’t revert until Nekoarashi is satisfied. Crap, what should I do?
“Oi, fix this! Stop messing around! I didn’t do anything wrong, I apologize!!”
“I did it nya! I defeated the one who defeated the person who defeated the ‘Yumekui’! I’ll brag about it to the other youkai! After that, I’ll turn you back nya.”
Nekoarashi disappeared somewhere. My belongings are scattered. I’m in a cat state… What should I do? I can’t go home like this. I can’t even speak in words.
What should I do… What should I do…
As I’m lost, from a distance…
“I need to summarize the key points for Izayoi-kun’s test today…”
“I’ll help too.”
“How about we do it at my house? The library has been crowded lately.”
“K-Kohaku-chan’s house!! L-Let’s go right away!”
“Calm down, Moegi.”
Ah, God hasn’t abandoned me. Let them notice me. And please, help me pick up my belongings.
“Hey, please notice me!”
I shouted. I can only speak in “Nyan”…
