(BL dorm)
Yuki: *roar!!*
Yuki: Alright! Let's do this!!
Yuki: It'll be fine. Joker-san is my partner. I'm sure we'll win.
Yuki: He must know the theme of the questions.
Yuki: And above all, he's the head of Durak who manages the school.
Yuki: It'll definitely be fine!!
Yuki: ...
Yuki: ...I think...
Yuki: But after all, I'm nervous.
Yuki: No, no! I have to get hold of myself!
Yuki: I shouldn't leave it to Joker-san just because he's with me!
Yuki: The future of the school is on my shoulders!!
Yuki: But, we absolutely can't lose...
??: What are you muttering to yourself about?
Yuki: Oh, Joker-san... Did you hear that just now?
Joker: Yeah, I've been watching you for a while.
Joker: It's fun watching you go in circles.
Yuki: Ugh... but...
Yuki: But, if we lose the Bell One, the school will close. It's a big responsibility!
Joker: Really?
Yuki: Don't go 'really?'...
Joker: Before you were grandstanding in front of all the students, and now you're thinking negatively?
Joker: If all you do is think pessimistically, it'll come true.
Joker: So I'll give you something nice.
Joker: Here you go.
Yuki: Ohh, it's a wooden charm with a pretty pattern.
Yuki: It's a letter C, or maybe a U? What is this?
Joker: It's called a beresta. It's a Russian craft made using birch bark.
Joker: It's not a letter of the alphabet, it's in the shape of a horseshoe that's put on a horse's hoof.
Yuki: A horseshoe?
Joker: In Europe, it's used as an amulet for good luck and to ward off evil.
Joker: Well, you might not need it with your good luck, though.
Yuki: No, that's not...
Joker: So, I'm giving this to you.
Yuki: Really!? Thank you!!
(Yuki: Come to think of it, he gave me a meat-stuffed habanero in the dorm cafeteria before.)
(Yuki: It was a rough experience, but maybe Joker-san likes giving people things?)
(Yuki: But, I'm really happy that he's worrying about me like this.)
Yuki: Joker-san, let's definitely win the Bell One!
Joker: Sure. Have you calmed down now?
Yuki: Yes!
Joker: You're so simple...
Yuki: Hehe.
(Yuki: I don't feel like he just happened to have this beresta.)
(Yuki: Maybe he was worried about me and got it specially for me.)
(Yuki: In that case, I have to respond to his feelings!)
Yuki: I'll put it on right away. I feel like it would be kept closer if I put in on my belt rather than my cell phone.
Joker: You should put it wherever you like.
Yuki: Right!
Yuki: In that case, my belt.
Yuki: There we go! Now, let's go to school!
Joker: Yuki-kun, I don't want to rain on your parade, but...
Yuki: Yes?
Joker: This beresta is supposed to be shaped like a U.
Joker: When the open part is up, it holds good luck.
Joker: But you put it on upside down.
Joker: If it's upside down, the luck will fly out, and it's said you'll have bad luck instead.
Yuki: Wha!!
Yuki: Joker-san! You should have said that sooner!
Yuki: What'll I do if my good luck flew away...?
Joker: That might be interesting in its own way.
Yuki: It would not be interesting!
Joker: Ahahaha.
Yuki: It's not funny...

announcement: The first round of the Bell One Grand Prix is about to begin. Will the student council president and his partner please come to the auditorium...
Yuki: Finally...

(auditorium)
Yuki: Everyone's here.
(Yuki: They're supporting us...!)
Sakaki: You're both here.
Sakaki: Then I'll begin the first round of the Bell One Grand Prix.
Yuki: Right.
Sakaki: To begin with, the first round is a contest to measure your intelligence.
Yuki: What kind of thing will we be doing?
Sakaki: It will be a quiz to measure your memory and abstract reasoning.
Sakaki: As for the detailed rules, since they've been entered into that panda you prepared, I'll have it explain.
Panda-san: Alrighty, Ah'll explain the rules of this game.
Panda-san: Whether this school closes or not, rests on both y'all's shoulders.
Panda-san: Do yer best!!
Panda-san: As Sakaki-han said, the first round will be a quiz to measure y'all's intelligence.
Panda-san: Ah've even given it a name! "Brain Scramblin' Brains Quiz!"
Panda-san: How about it? Just hearin' the names makes yer head hurt, doesn't it.
Panda-san: Put yer brains into full gear and do yer best.
Panda-san: There are two types of questions. The "memory quiz" and "abstract reasonin' quiz."
Panda-san: Which are ya good at, student council president?
Panda-san: Well, wantin' to choose the one yer good at is human psychology.
Panda-san: But, guess what? Panda-san isn't that nice.
Panda-san: It's a brutal system where ya won't know which kind of questions there'll be until it starts.
Panda-san: Well, the point is, it will depend on y'all's luck.
Panda-san: However, Panda-san hates sneaky people who save and load over and over before the quiz.
Panda-san: If ya do that, Panda-san will hit ya. Hit ya over and over.
Panda-san: No, instead Panda-san might cry.
Panda-san: We don't want that. Then face the fate ya've been given!
Panda-san: There will be ten questions in all.
Panda-san: Ya win if ya get six questions right.
Panda-san: Do ya want to hear the detailed explanation of the rules?


(decision)
Hear it.
Don't hear it.

(decision: Hear it.)
Panda-san: Alrighty, kind Panda-han will give ya a thorough explanation, so listen carefully.
Panda-san: First, when the question is displayed, ya decide who will answer it.
Panda-san: Ah don't mind if the student council president-han thinks about it himself, or relies on his partner.

(PC only) Panda-san: Choose who will do it with the mouse.
(PC only) Panda-san: When ya've decided who will answer, click on them.
(Vita only) Panda-san: Choose who will do it by moving left or right with the directional key and decide with the O button, or choose directly with a tap.

Panda-san: If yer partner was chosen, even if ya try to answer, they will answer by themselves.
Panda-san: Ya can leave them all to yer partner, but if yer confident in the answer, answerin' yerself is an option.
Panda-san: No matter how smart yer partner is, they're only human. They may make mistakes.
Panda-san: That's where yer partnership is important.
Panda-san: So, back to the quiz.
Panda-san: First, Ah'll explain the "memory quiz."
Panda-san: Well, to put it simply, it's a quiz where you memorize the numbers on playin' cards and answer.
Panda-san: There are two types, number matchin' and number sequencin'.
Panda-san: For the number matchin', the cards are displayed at the beginnin', then ya beat them into yer head so ya don't forget the numbers.

(PC only) Panda-san: Once ya've memorized it, press the "I've memorized it!" button.
(Vita only) Panda-san: Once ya've memorized it, press the O button or tap "I've memorized it!"

Panda-san: There is a time limit to memorize it, so be careful.
Panda-san: Then, from among the face-down cards, like the game Concentration, choose two cards at a time with the same number.
Panda-san: If ya've properly memorized the cards, ya should be able to answer.
Panda-san: For the number sequencin', the cards are displayed at the beginnin', so memorize the numbers so ya don't forget.
Panda-san: Then, from among the face-down cards, choose the cards in numerical order startin' from the smallest.
Panda-san: Alright? In order from the smallest.
Panda-san: For the number matchin' and number sequencin', if ya make any mistake, that's considered a wrong answer.
Panda-san: Since we scrambled the numbers, it might be a teensy bit difficult.
Panda-san: Then, ya can consult yer own brain, or rely on yer partner.
Panda-san: There will be ten questions in all, five number matchin' and five number sequencin' questions.
Panda-san: That's the explanation of the "memory quiz."
Panda-san: Next Ah'll explain the "abstract reasonin' quiz."
Panda-san: On the screen, shapes will be displayed in lined-up slots.
Panda-san: Among them, there will be a box with "?", so think about what to put there that lines up with the shapes to the left and right.
Panda-san: To make a comprehensive judgement of all the factors like color and shape, ya need flexible abstract reasonin'.

(PC only) Panda-san: If ya discover the rule, click the up and down triangles to choose the proper shape for the "?" part.
(PC only) Panda-san: When ya've decided the shape, click the submit button.
(Vita only) Panda-san: If ya discover the rule, tap the up and down triangles, or move the directional key up and down to choose the proper shape for the "?" part.
(Vita only) Panda-san: When ya've decided the shape, press the O button or tap yer selection.

Panda-san: Ya have exactly thirty seconds to answer.
Panda-san: Don't be impatient, think it over slowly.
Panda-san: That's all the explanation of the rules.
Panda-san: How about it? It's complicated, so did ya forget?
Panda-san: Ya wanna hear the explanation again?


(decision)
Please!
That's enough.

(decision: That's enough.)
Panda-san: So, are ya ready?


Panda-san: Game start!

-- win Bell One, round one minigame --

Panda-san: Oh! Ya did it!!
Panda-san: It's y'all's victory in the first round of the Bell One Grand Prix!!
Panda-san: The second round is next week, the next match will be an evaluation of your strength.
Panda-san: Go all out and train.
Panda-san: Then, dismissed!

(courtyard)
Joker: That was pretty interesting.
Yuki: Joker-san!
Joker: What is it?
Yuki: We were able to clear the first round because you're my partner, Joker-san!
Joker: That's why I told you not to worry.
Yuki: I was worried before we started, but I feel like we cleared it more easily than I expected.
Joker: True, it was easy.
Joker: Well, but it was more fun than I expected.
Joker: When this is over, I'll arrange something like the Bell One for all the students.
Yuki: Oh, that would be nice. Let's have the student council and Durak organize it!
Yuki: Although that's only if the school stays open...
Joker: If it continues like this, it'll be an easy win.
Yuki: Hmm. But I wonder if it's okay to decide the fate of the school on a game like this.
Joker: Isn't it fine?
Joker: There's nothing like an easy win.
Joker: Why don't you chalk it up to your good luck?
Yuki: Is that really it...?
Joker: Anyway, you should do whatever you like.
Joker: If I'm helping and having fun, that's enough for me.
Yuki: Yes. Thank you.
Yuki: You're a pretty positive person, Joker-san.
Joker: Really?
Yuki: I think so.
Yuki: I thought I was pretty positive, but you might be even more.
Joker: I'm positive, huh...
??: Oh, there you are.
Yuki: Kuya-san! And Takato-san!
Takato: First, congratulations on your first round win.
Kuya: Yeah! It was a good match!
Yuki: Thank you! We'll do our best in the next one too!
Joker: Is that all you came to say? Since I'm with him, it's only natural that we won.
Yuki: Since they're congratulating us, we should accept it graciously.
Takato: Joker, I thought someone like you would be amused by this matter.
Takato: But I'm surprised you're participating in Bell One with the Ace.
Takato: I took it for granted that you would be a spectator as usual.
Joker: I'm offended that you think of me that way. Of course I would help Yuki-kun when he's in trouble.
Yuki: Joker-san...
Joker: Well, I'm a slave to the cute Ace-kun.
Yuki: Huh!?
Joker: If he asked, I'd go through fire and water...
Joker: I would do anything for him.
Joker: Everything he desires.
Yuki: Joker-san, joking like that again...
Joker: It's not a joke, I'm seriously serious.
Joker: Well, since the moment we first met, I was already...
Yuki: Ah. But...
Kuya: It's a declaration of love!
Takato: So Joker, what's your real intention?
Joker: It's so rare to have such a fun game.
Joker: Rather than being in the spectator's seats, I wanted to try enjoying the special seats for the participants.
Takato: So that's it, Asahina.
Kuya: You're loved!
Yuki: Haha...
Yuki: I guess...
Yuki: Ah, I'm surprised.
(Yuki: He started to get a little serious...)
Joker: Really, you'll believe anything.
Joker: So cute.
Yuki: Haha. Geez... Please don't scare me.
Joker: Well, anyway, good job today, Ace-kun.
Yuki: Right!
Joker: And Hayato, you did a good job too.
Yuki: Huh? Chiba-san?
Joker: You can come out now.
*rustle*
Chiba: Yes. Here I am.
Yuki: You were there!?
Joker: You didn't realize? He's been there for a long time.
Yuki: I had no idea...
(Yuki: I'm surprised... Joker-san shocked me again.)
Joker: Well, Hayato, how'd it go?
Chiba: Yes.
Chiba: *whispering*
Joker: Hmm. As I thought...
(Yuki: As I thought? What is he talking about...?)
Joker: Ace-kun.
Yuki: Yes!
Joker: See you in the second round.
Yuki: Right! Thank you!
Joker: Then I'll be going.
Yuki: Huh?
Joker: Let's go, Hayato.
Chiba: Yes.
Yuki: Wait, Joker-san!?
Yuki: He left.
Yuki: What happened...?
Kuya: That was splendid, Yuki!
Yuki: Splendid...? Getting through the first round?
Kuya: That too!
Kuya: But that's not all.
Kuya: You've gotten really friendly with Joker.
Kuya: Just as I expect from you, with us student council members and your classmates, and now Joker too.
Kuya: You have lots of friends.
Kuya: Yeah, it's good! That's really good!!
Yuki: Haha...
Takato: Kuya is right, I also find it admirable.
Yuki: Even you, Takato-san...
Takato: I truly think so.
Takato: Even though he talks like that, with Joker, it was very possible that he'd decide to just be a spectator.
Takato: Participating directly like this is a bit outside of what I expected.
Yuki: I see...
Yuki: But Joker-san was amazing.
Yuki: He helped me a lot in the first round!
Kuya: I'm glad, Yuki.
Yuki: Yeah!
Takato: It's true that as long as Joker feels like helping, you'll continue to win in the Bell One.
Takato: But we don't know what he's thinking.
Yuki: Takato-san?
Takato: Because he's Joker. Like his name, he's a wild card.
Takato: He can be an enemy or a friend depending on his mood.
Takato: Please be careful. He may be plotting something.
Yuki: Huh? But he wouldn't...
Takato: It's important not to rely on Joker too much.
Yuki: But, that's...
Kuya: What do you think, Yuki?
Kuya: From your point of view, what kind of person is Joker?
Yuki: Well, there's times I don't really know what Joker-san is thinking, but...
Yuki: I don't think he's deceiving me...
(Yuki: Probably... or rather, I want to think he's not...)
Kuya: I see.
Yuki: Right.
Yuki: But...
Kuya: But?
Yuki: ...No, it's nothing.
(Yuki: But is it really okay to not understand Joker-san...?)
