What Should I...? Card Story - Episode

Ako & Rinko Meet

Transcript


Ako: Fufufu. Here it is, my strawberry cake! And the first bite...
Ako: Mmm~, so good! Your chocolate cake looks pretty good too though, Rin-rin. I had a pretty hard time choosing between them.
Rinko: Do you... want a bite...?
Ako: Really?! Don't mind if I do. Aaa~~...
Rinko: Ah... Or... We could just... go halves...?
Ako: That's my generous friend, Rin-rin!
Rinko: I wanted to... try the strawberry cake, too...
Ako: Fufufufu. We really are a great pair, aren't we?
Ako: Speaking of which, thank you for saving me in that online event the other day~. I never would have gotten that special item without you!
Rinko: I suppose... we counter each other's weaknesses in-game... just like in real life...
Ako: Yeah? I mean, I guess we are opposite classes in-game, but we're not that different in real life, are we?
Rinko: You have... a lot of real life traits that... I don't share...
Ako: Again with this, Rin-rin~?
Rinko: I'm sorry... but I often think... What if we hadn't met each other in-game... but in real life...?
Ako: You mean, if it wasn't in-game you might not have come up to me?
Ako: You always say that. That if we'd met for the first time in real life, you wouldn't even have spoken to me.
Ako: But I would definitely have spoken to you!!
Rinko: And... you always say that, too...
Ako: Well, it's true! Because I think your style and all your knowledge about history and myths and stuff is super cool.
Rinko: History and myths... We just have a lot of books at home, and... I've been reading them from a young age...
Ako: Even that fact alone is just amazing. I can't even read a book now without falling asleep.
Rinko: But... you read manga, don't you...? It's more or less the same...
Ako: Yeah, but those ones about Cthulhu and stuff, I can never understand them without you explaining it all to me.
Rinko: Yes, but... the way you can just go out shopping... and go to offline meetups and such... I find that amazing...
Rinko: The live house, even here... I could never come to these places by myself...
Rinko: I just... spend all my time at home... reading books... playing piano... not talking to anyone...
Ako: ... Rin-rin.
Ako: Do you remember when we first met in-game?
Rinko: Huh...? You had been knocked out... So I rezzed you...
Ako: See, I'd only just started playing. I was really enjoying myself, but I don't know much about in-game manners and stuff.
Ako: One by one, my guild members started abandoning me... Then they stopped coming out hunting with me...
Rinko: ...
Ako: The whole time I was down, no one around me would help me out, would they?
Rinko: I just... I can't pass someone who's been knocked out... I feel so bad for them...
Ako: It's not just you, Rin-rin.
Rinko: ...?
Ako: In that moment, I was completely alone, too.
Ako: In my moment of need, when no one else would help me, you were there to pick me up.
Ako: When no one would play with me, you would invite me to go on quests with you.
Ako: That day, and the next day, and the day after, we chatted and chatted and went on all kinds of adventures!
Ako: If you hadn't helped me then, I'd still be alone now. But I'm not. We're not.
Ako: I think maybe we were meant to be alone, just so that we'd find each other in that moment.
Rinko: Ako-chan...
Rinko: I... I always helped people who were down... Even if I didn't know them... I would res them all the same...
Rinko: I would lose materials each time, but... I can just buy more, I thought... They would thank me, and... I thought we could become friends, but...
Rinko: ... I didn't have the courage... even in game chat... to talk to them...
Rinko: But then you, Ako-chan... You were the first person I saved... who actually spoke to me, instead...
Ako: I was...?
Rinko: Yes... You tell me you're... grateful for what I did that day, but...
Rinko: I... I was so happy myself that day...
Rinko: "Thanks. Let's play together," you said... I've always treasured those words...
Ako: R-really~~? I had no idea it was so important to you. Why did you never tell me before?!
Rinko: Because... I was embarrassed that I was too scared to talk... even in an in-game chat...
Ako: But once we started questing, you were chatting to me the whole time, explaining what we were doing and stuff.
Rinko: Well... I wasn't brave enough to invite other players, so... I'd played those quests again and again... but always failed in the end...
Rinko: Plus... I'm actually very good at chat... underneath it all...
Ako: What~~?! All this talk, Rin-rin, is just making me like you even more, you know~!
Rinko: Th-thank you...
Ako: I think maybe you could even start calling me "The Shadow Rose" from now on...
Rinko: I... don't think I can...

Rinko: ... This is... where it all began...
Rinko: Everyone is... so talented...
Rinko: I wonder... if I'm doing well enough...
Rinko: ... I don't have... the right attitude, do I...?
Rinko: I... need to be more... confident in myself...
Rinko: B-before we... play our next... show...
Rinko: ...
Rinko: I-I'm so nervous... I can't brea-...
Rinko: Ah...

Rinko: I wonder... if I'm... going to be okay...
Rinko: ...?!
Rinko: Wh-who's... there...?
Rinko: Oh... BanG Dreamer-san... H-hello...
Rinko: What were you... doing just now, BanG Dreamer-san...?
Rinko: Oh... You were out shopping... You're always so busy...
Rinko: M-me...?
Rinko: I was... just...
Rinko: Thinking about... s-some things from the past...
Rinko: S-so...
Rinko: I-I wasn't... holding my chest because I was... in pain or anything... like that...
Rinko: I-I'm sorry... if I made you worry...
Rinko: ...
Rinko: BanG Dreamer-san...
Rinko: D-do you think... I'm... doing well in Roselia...?
Rinko: I'm worried... because everyone else is so... talented...
Rinko: Huh...? Y-you think I'm... talented too...?
Rinko: I'm playing... my part well...? O-oh...
Rinko: I feel... a little better... hearing that from you... BanG Dreamer-san...
Rinko: ... I do feel that... I need to be more confident in myself, but...
Rinko: M-my anxiety... never goes away...
Rinko: ...
Rinko: ... Huh? You want to hear... about the past...?
Rinko: Umm... i-it's not... very interesting... you know...?
Rinko: B-but... if you don't mind... Okay.
Rinko: Th-this... live house... is a special place... for me...
Rinko: You want to know... why...?
Rinko: Ako-chan and I were... at a cafe...
Rinko: She... invited me to... Yukina-san's performance...
Rinko: ... I-I... don't like crowded places...
Rinko: ... And live houses... are full of people, right...?
Rinko: So... in the beginning... I was planning on... saying no...
Rinko: But Ako-chan... was really persistent... because she wanted to repay me...
Rinko: A-and so... I ended up going to the live house...
Rinko: Th-the performance we saw... was really amazing...
Rinko: Ako-chan... said she wanted to join Yukina-san's band... and that changed... my life...
Rinko: ... After hearing Yukina-san's music... that's what she did...
Rinko: When I heard... their music after Ako-chan joined... I wanted... to join Roselia too...
Rinko: Th-that feeling... grew stronger... as time passed...
Rinko: A-and before I knew it... I... did something...
Rinko: Ako-chan was... really surprised... because I'm usually... so introverted...
Rinko: But this time... I took the first steps... towards what I wanted...
Rinko: Th-that's why...
Rinko: B-being able to... talk to you like this, BanG Dreamer-san...
Rinko: A-and the way... I've changed a little... as well...
Rinko: All... of these things... happened because I... came to the live house... with Ako-chan...
Rinko: I-it was because... Ako-chan brought me here... that day...
Rinko: That I am... the person I am... now...
Rinko: ... Y-you must be... tired of listening to me...
Rinko: I-if you keep... smiling at me... like that, I'm going to... turn red...
Rinko: ... O-okay, I'm... going to go... prepare for our rehearsal...
Rinko: I'll... see you later... Goodbye...
