Shinobi Adventures!
Side Kumon Hyodo (1/3)
Kumon: I was kinda bummed that I couldn't play a ninja in the play at first, but now I'm super excited to be a lord!
I mean, I get to wear a topknot and say stuff like, 'Get these ruffians out of my sight!'
Plus, unlike the ninjas, I get to wear a kimono! I'll still have to practice moving around in it, though.
I was already familiar with baseball for the last play, but this time I'll actually have to study for my role!
It might not be easy, but I'm sure it'll be fun!
Side Kumon Hyodo (2/3)
Kumon: Oh, this? It's a ninja game that Itaru lent me! You can use all kinds of ninjutsu and ninja tools to explore the stages, and it's pretty good!
But this level is real tough, and I just can't clear it no matter how many times I try.
Itaru tried to show me how it's done, but that guy is on a whole other level!
He really is a pro at gaming! Oh, and guess what? He promised to battle me in a baseball-themed game sometime!
Banri said he'd join in, too! I might not be able to beat Itaru, but I'm definitely not losing to Banri!
Side Kumon Hyodo (3/3)
Kumon: Good job, everyone! That went pretty well!
Hey, Izumi, how was I in the final scene today?
Really good? You think so? Yay!
You gave me lots of advice for that scene, so I worked extra hard on it.
Hehe! It makes me happy to hear that you're proud of me. It really pumps me up!
I'm gonna take all this motivation to do even better tomorrow!
You'd better watch me do my best, okay?
Kumon & Tasuku Talk
Kumon: All right, here we go. Ready, set...start!
Tasuku: ...!
Kumon: Nghh...!
Tasuku: ...Hmph!
Kumon: Ack! Nooo! I lost again... Tasuku, you're way too good at arm wrestling!
Tasuku: You're much stronger than last time, though. It feels like you've gained some muscle since then.
Kumon: You think so?! Hehe... Hey, why don't we organize a big Mankai inner-troupe arm wrestling tournament?! Oh, wait... If we make it a troupe contest, then the Autumn Troupe might be too overpowered. Juza's super strong, and Omi and the others are really tough, too.
Tasuku: They might be strong, but it might be a surprisingly close match. Every troupe has their own dark horses.
Kumon: That's true! Tenma and Sumi look pretty buff, so the Summer Troupe might be able to put up a fight!
Tasuku: And my troupe has Guy and Mikage to fall back on, despite how fragile the latter looks. As for the Spring Troupe, Utsuki might be surprisingly formidable. Even Minagi might manage to put up a good fight.
Kumon: Aw man, now I really want to do it! Let's bring it up next time we have the chance! I'll aim to place in the top five!
mAnkai ApArtment!
Side Kumon Hyodo (1/3)
Kumon: I heard that the shows they used to hold here were massively popular.
But these days, we don't actually use that stage anymore. Some of the residents barely act at all!
It sucks that things turned out this way, especially since we all moved here because we love acting.
I...I want to see the others act. And I want to act with them! I want this courtyard to become a bustling, fun hotspot again! Just like it used to be!
But most of all, I want the chance to stand on the same stage as Juza!
Well, none of that's gonna happen if we don't clean this place up first! C'mon, Izumi! We've got this!
Side Kumon Hyodo (2/3)
Kumon: Oh, look! Tasuku's doing a street act over there! Man, he's so good at acting!
He actually works as a car mechanic, bu he does improv after work and on weekends.
Tasuku always looks so happy when he's acting! He's just so cool, it's no wonder he has so many fans!
But, you know, I think he's pretty awesome in car mechanic mode, too. I sometimes pass by the shop he works at on my way to work.
Whenever I see him in his oil-covered overalls and holding some heavy tools, I'm just like, 'Dang, there's a man you can rely on!' I wish I were that badass!
He's also the big, silent type, just like my brother. I really wanna get to know him better and be friends!
Side Kumon Hyodo (3/3)
Kumon: So this is going to sound a bit weird, but...
I can't shake the feeling that we met before. Like, it didn't feel like it was our first meeting when you introduced yourself to us.
I mean, I don't know why I feel that way... That was definitely the first time we met...
...Do you think we might've known each other in a different life? Or even a completely different dimension?
Whoa... How cool would that be?! I just got chills thinking about it! Dang, talk about an exciting thought!
Maybe I was a knight, and you were a princess! Or we both attended the same school! Oh! Or we could've been comrades who fought side by side!
Imagine that! Our bonds go beyond time and space! Hehe, isn't that amazing?
Kumon & Itaru Talk
Itaru: Whassup, everyone, this is Taruchi. Have you all had a chance to play Shining Sluggers 3 yet? I can barely tear myself away from it.
You all know what the SS series is famous for, right? You got it. It's the way all the pitches and hits are accompanied by edgy attack calls and effects!
Well, today we're gonna bring some of that SS magic into the real world. We'll be recreating an iconic pitching scene using the game's OG BGM and sound effects.
With me is my partner-in-crime, a man who's still an edgy kid at heart just like me and who knows everything there is to know about baseball...Noin!
Kumon: Sup, everyone! Noin here! Let's do this!
Itaru: Noin will act as the pitcher, and I'll be the catcher. Let's get this party started! Background music...go!
Kumon: I call upon the power of the phoenix sealed within this arm! Let's see you try to hit this white ball bathed in the crimson flames of hell!
Itaru: This sacred technique was passed down to us through generations of players. C'mon, show 'em what you've got!
Kumon: HAAAH! ETERNAL CRIMSON BALL!
Itaru: ...Aw, shit.
Kumon: Oh my gosh! Are you okay, Taruchi?!
Itaru: Sorry, I messed up the catch. Wait, crap! The camera!
Kumon: O-oh no! The preview screen is looking all kinds of messed up!
Itaru: Hang on, it looks like it's still recording. Ahem...
Ngh... So that's the power of the phoenix...? Its flames burned so brightly, not even my video equipment was able to capture its might...
Kumon: Ahahaha! Nice save, Taruchi!
Itaru: Not bad for something I made up on the spot, huh? We can still use it in the blooper reel if it managed to record all of that.
