Izumi
(Phew. Today's rehearsal went off without a hitch. Now I just have to get things ready for tomorrow's practice...)
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Haaah!
Izumi profile
Izumi
You're still practicing, Sakuya? It's already so late!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Yes! I just can't sit still when I think about our show...
Izumi profile
Izumi
It's good that you're so passionate about the play, but you still have plenty of time to practice tomorrow. Don't stay up too late.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Okay, I won't!
Itaru profile
Itaru
Sword practice, huh? Hmm...

Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Haah! Yaah!
Itaru profile
Itaru
Hah!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Huh?! Wh-what are you two doing, swinging swords around in here?!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Oh, Izumi!
Itaru profile
Itaru
You know how Sakuya was practicing his swordplay all day yesterday? After seeing him like that, I decided to introduce him to the perfect game.
Izumi profile
Izumi
What game?
Itaru profile
Itaru
This one right here. It comes with these special sword-shaped controllers, and you take down the enemies by facing the screen and swinging the sword.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
It's like I'm actually fighting them!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Wow, I didn't know they made games like this. Looks fun!
Itaru profile
Itaru
You wanna try, too? Here, take this controller.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Huh, it's just like an actual prop sword.
Itaru profile
Itaru
All right, you two can play in co-op mode.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Umm, what do I...?
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
You just need to swind your sword to cut down the enemies when they show up on the screen!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Okay, that's not too bad. By the way, what's this mic for?
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Um, I'm not really sure either...
Itaru profile
Itaru
No worries. I'll let you know what they're for when the time comes.
[Time Skip]
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Yaah!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Take this!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Yay! We're doing great!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Yeah! I'm slowly getting the hang of this! And this is pretty good exercise. I'm seriously working up a sweat.
Izumi profile
Izumi
huh? The music changed...
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Wh-whoa, this enemy looks really though!
Itaru profile
Itaru
They're this stage's mini boss.
Itaru profile
Itaru
By the way, if you two don't match your timing and swing your swords together, you won't be able to beat them.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
What?! We have to attack at the same time?!
Izumi profile
Izumi
That sound so difficult... I was getting used to his game, too!
Itaru profile
Itaru
It's not that bad. You just need to sync your swings, and you'll be good.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
L-let's do this, Izumi!












































The Strike of a Sword! Part 2
[Mankai Dormitory Lounge: Morning]
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
One, two...three!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Shoot, we missed again.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
It's pretty hard to attack at the same time...
Itaru profile
Itaru
I think you're swinging a little too soon, Sakuya.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
O-okay! I'll be more careful!
Izumi profile
Izumi
All right, one more time! Here we go!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
We'll get them for sure this time!
Izumi profile
Izumi
D-did we do it?
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Yeah, we did! We got 'em, Izumi!
Itaru profile
Itaru
Hey, nice. Grats.
Izumi profile
Izumi
C'mon Sakuya! Let's keep this up and beat this level!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Okay!
[Time Skip]
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Here we are, Izumi. The final boss is just beyond this door...
Izumi profile
Izumi
Let's go.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Yeah...!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Oh!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Wait a second!
Itaru profile
Itaru
Huh. I never realized, but the final boss in this game looks just like the one in the last level of KotR IV.
Izumi profile
Izumi
I got wiped out so many times by that boss...
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Me too... I'm not sure we can defeat this enemy in one go...
Itaru profile
Itaru
Just take this as chacarcter building exercise. Good luck, you two.
Itaru profile
Itaru
Oh, and remember those mics you guys were wondering about? Here's where you use them.
Izumi profile
Izumi
So the time has finally come... Are we supposed to say something into them?
Itaru profile
Itaru
Yup. You can't take down the boss unless you both attack while calling out the name of the special move. It'll show up on screen for you to read out loud.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Oh, wow, it's voice-activated, too? That's amazing!
Itaru profile
Itaru
Look, the special move's on screen.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
We've got this, Izumi! Ready?
Both Chevalier Soleil!
TV Ngh... Y-you...betrayed me...!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Huh?
Izumi profile
Izumi
What? Why did Sakuya's character die instead of the enemy?
Itaru profile
Itaru
Looks like you attacked the wrong character, Izumi.
Izumi profile
Izumi
I did?!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Wait, so she cut me instead...?!
Itaru profile
Itaru
Yeah, friendly fire's a thing in this game. If you swing you sword too hard, you'll end up cutting your teammate.
Boss Looks like you've succumbed to the same darkness as me... Hahaha!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Oh, no... We got the bad end!
Itaru profile
Itaru
Man, that betrayal was like Merling-level evil... I guess everything went according to your plan, Izumi.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Don't say it like that! That was a complete accident!
Izumi profile
Izumi
I'm sorry, Sakuya! I didn't mean to kill your character...
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Oh! You don't have to apologize. I'm just surprised there's even an ending like this.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
I feel like I have a better understanding on how to handle a sword now because of this game! Thanks for introducing me to it, Itaru!
Itaru profile
Itaru
No problem, man. I'm glad you had fun while practicing for your role.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Hey, maybe we should call the rest of the Spring Troupe over and play together since the game's already set up!
Itaru profile
Itaru
That's good suggestion since so many of us are playing characters who fight with swords. There's a versus mode in this game, so that'd be fun to play.
Izumi profile
Izumi
...I'll just sit on the sidelines and watch...
