The Road to Victory Part 1
Banri profile
Banri
Hey, Itaru, I grabbed whoever I could find.
Taichi profile
Taichi
I heard you needed some help, but what for?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Is something wrong?
Itaru profile
Itaru
Oh, so you got Izumi and Taichi. It's no biggie, but I'm playing an online game and need you guys on my team to join some 4v4s.
Izumi profile
Izumi
You called us here just to game?!
Itaru profile
Itaru
Don't worry, this game is easy-peasy.
Izumi profile
Izumi
(The difficulty of the game wasn't my main point of concern...)
Taichi profile
Taichi
Oh! This's the game where you shoot paint and stuff, right?! I've heard of this one!

Everyon'es super into it at school right now! I've played it with my friends before, too!
Banri profile
Banri
Yeah, it's popular enough that even normies are into it. It's got a lot of merch, too.
Itaru profile
Itaru
Cool, then I don't need to explain anything. Here, grab a controller.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Taichi might know what's going on, but I don't! I don't know anything about this game.
Itaru profile
Itaru
Basically, we win if we kill everyone on the other team or if we take the flag from the middle and throw it into our opponents' goal, kinda like in football.
Banri profile
Banri
You'll probably get the gist of it faster if we just play a game.
Itaru profile
Itaru
You can just focus on attacking the other team for now, Izumi. Don't worry about anything else.

Tilt the stick to run and use the A button to fire paint.
Izumi profile
Izumi
I'm assuming I can't say no to this, can I?
Itaru profile
Itaru
Nope.
Izumi profile
Izumi
(Wow, no hesitation. Ugh... Well, I guess I'll be okay if all I have to do is push a button...)

I'll try, but don't blame me if I bring down the team!
Itaru profile
Itaru
No problem. You're just supposed to be the bait anyway.

Banri and I'll focus on getting the flag.

Taichi, you back us up.
Taichi profile
Taichi
You got it!
Itaru profile
Itaru
We'll be sitting ducks if we charge at them head-on, so don't be an easy target and stay on the left. 'Kay?
Banri profile
Banri
'Kay.
Itaru profile
Itaru
All right, team. My rank is riding on this, so don't suck too hard.

Izumi profile
Izumi
Okay... I'll attack...here!
Banri profile
Banri
Yep, that's the spirit, Izumi.
Izumi profile
Izumi
I don't know if I'm helping much, but I'm just gonna keep covering this place in paint!
---
Izumi profile
Izumi
Okay, I think this area is done!

(Let's see... Where haven't I painted yet? I guess I'll check around that corner.)

Now let's give this place a makeover!

Huh? Nothing's happening... Did I push the wrong button?
Itaru profile
Itaru
Izumi, there's no point in pushing the B button there.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Oh, sorry!

Oh, no! I died! I think that was my last life...
Taichi profile
Taichi
Nooo! Izumi!
Banri profile
Banri
It's all good, Izumi. You were a big help.
Itaru profile
Itaru
Yeah, the amount of paint you put down makes it way easier for us to navigate the map.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Thanks for trying to make me feel better, guys...
Banri profile
Banri
FYI, Izumi pressing the B button will put down a trap. Judging from the weapon you got equipped, that was probably a land mine you planted.
Taichi profile
Taichi
Don't worry, I'll avenge you!

I'll make sure your death wasn't in vain! Here I go! TAICHIII NANAO!
Itaru profile
Itaru
Dammit, I told you guys not to charge head-on into enemy territory!
To be continued...


















































The Road to Victory Part 2
Taichi profile
Taichi
Nooo! I was supposed to avenge Izumi!
Itaru profile
Itaru
That's what you get for charging in like a headless chicken.
Taichi profile
Taichi
It's fine! I've still got one life left! It's on for real now. Watch me closely, Izumi!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Uh, okay. Just don't overdo it, all right?
Taichi profile
Taichi
You got it!
---
Banri profile
Banri
Dude, these guys're real tough.
Itaru profile
Itaru
Tell me about it... Ugh...

Banri, back me up here. I can't keep taking all the aggro.
Banri profile
Banri
I'd love to, but they laid traps all over the place. Frickin' hard to get over there.
Izumi profile
Izumi
I guess eve you meet your match sometimes.
Itaru profile
Itaru
Yeah, well, I'm not the only game junkie in the world. Running into tough opponents isn't that rare.
Banri profile
Banri
At least a close game is more excitin'.
Taichi profile
Taichi
Wh-what was that?! They almost got me!
Itaru profile
Itaru
What the hell? This guy again? They're practically carrying their whole team.
Banri profile
Banri
They've been at this the entire game.

They'll probably come back to bite us in the ass if we let them ho, so I'll just take 'em out real quick.
Itaru profile
Itaru
Yeah, go for it. Aw, sweet! Finally got out of that mess. A'ight, time to show them what Taruchi's really made of.

The coast is clear. I'm gonna grab the flag, so back me up.
Taichi profile
Taichi
Yes, sir!
Banri profile
Banri
On it.
Taichi profile
Taichi
Here's my chance to redeem myself! I can't afford to mess up this time!

Huh...?

Oh, crap! Some kind of count down just started! Did I trigger a trap?!
Itaru profile
Itaru
Aw, man. Countdown traps are the worst. I don't thinkI'll make it in time to save you, so hurry up and get out of there. You're on your last life here.
Banri profile
Banri
Okay! I think I can make it... Gah!

I couldn't stop it from exploding, but that should've minimized the damage.
Itaru profile
Itaru
GG. Thanks for taking one for the team. Your sacrifice was worth it.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Wait, really? But he lost one of his lives!
Itaru profile
Itaru
Our whole area would've been covered in their paint if Banri hadn't stopped it.
Banri profile
Banri
That would've opened up the map for them to come at us from all sides. Even Itaru and I wouldn't've been able to fight them all off.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Oh, I see...
Itaru profile
Itaru
We're all down to our last life... Taichi, get the flag and start heading towards their goal.
Banri profile
Banri
We'll be right behind you.
Taichi profile
Taichi
L-leave it to me!
---
Taichi profile
Taichi
Ack! They've trapped me in a pincer attack!

They keep following me no matter where I run! Itaru, Banny, heeelp!
Itaru profile
Itaru
Guh... There are too many traps to get through.
Banri profile
Banri
This a ridiculous number of traps... Forget it, I'm gonna take the long way 'round. Hang in there, Taichi.
Taichi profile
Taichi
Waaah! Hurry!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Oh!

(That's right! I had put down a trap earlier, too! I wonder if they can use it here?)

Taichi, try going where I placed that landmine before I died!
Itaru profile
Itaru
...!
Taichi profile
Taichi
Oh, right! That never went off! Okay, I'm on my way!
Banri profile
Banri
If we can detonate the landmine while they're all gathered in one place...
Itaru profile
Itaru
We might be able to get 'em all in one hit!
Taichi profile
Taichi
I-it was around here, right?!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Yeah!
Taichi profile
Taichi
...!
Itaru profile
Itaru
Damn. We seriously KO'd them all at once.
Taichi profile
Taichi
We did it, Izumi!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Yeah! You were great out there, Taichi
Banri profile
Banri
Wait, hold up. You were the one who painted us into a tight corner. What're you celebratin' for?
Itaru profile
Itaru
Seriously. We only won 'cause Banri and I backed you up and because of Izumi's trap.
Taichi profile
Taichi
Sorry about that...
Itaru profile
Itaru
Well, whatever. That was all sorts of chaotic, but we still won. Let's queue up for another round.
Izumi profile
Izumi
What?! I thought we were done already!
Taichi profile
Taichi
Let's do this, guys! I'll be better support this time!
Story clear!
