Because I am cruel and would like to tantalize you with the possibility of a Let's Play that may never materialize. At least not until summer.

A little explanation (minor spoilers ahead for those who are particularly sensitive): there are two routes, Servant route and CCC route (which is probably intended to be played after one has completed a Servant route, though it's accessible from the start). For the most part, CCC route follows the same path as the Servant route with some added scenes and minor changes. The two only completely diverge in the final chapter. Due to there being a handy choice branch near the end, you can still see the Servant route endings on CCC route; however, you can't see the CCC ending on the Servant route.

There are also two variations to the Servant route endings: "Extra ending" (normal end) and "Servant ending" (good end). If I was to do a Let's Play, I would trigger the flags for both the CCC route and the Servant good ending; this way I can show both on one playthrough, but some events exclusive to the Servant route will be omitted as a result. Those can be added later if people show interest.

What I'm not sure on is how to handle choice branches in general. I can either just pick the "right" choices and move right along, or stop the recording whenever I hit a branch and post for people to vote on the choices, except when the flags mentioned above are involved. This would also break the LP into more manageable segments (for me), but it could be choppy when there are multiple choices close to each other.

For reference, it usually takes about twenty-some hours to clear one playthrough of CCC. I can probably shorten that quite a bit if I start a New Game+ with levels carried over, but people might not want that.

Thoughts?

Not a bad idea but I'm not entirely sure how it'd work?

I was going to do it, but... I could step aside on the sole condition that you have to translate every line of dialogue that comes out of Shinji's mouth >:(

Well, issue would be that the routes are like 90% identical.

Tobias
May 15th, 2013, 04:43 PM
I was hoping there would be more daylight between the routes then that. well, collaboration would take some of the strain off if you could make it work, I am just not quite sure how that would play out

Reiu
May 15th, 2013, 04:46 PM
I was thinking we could do the translations on Google Docs or something. At least the parts that are identical, if we're doing different routes/going with different Servants.

You know, in defiance of Pai.


We should get 4 people to do 4 different Let's Plays for each servant. And try to get 'em to not borrow one another's translations, then we can play with the translation differences!

Voted femmc tentatively because playing as the opposite gender in a video game is like cross-dressing which is a sexually deviant behavior which I can't support. If you are actually a dude pretending to be a teenage girl go right ahead with the malemc!

New game+ would be fine by me since I don't really care about the game play. Most folk interested probably don't, I'd assume.

I'd be interested in following it at any rate! Either of ya doing it. I figure you'd be doing Gilgamesh, aye Reiu?

Tobias
May 15th, 2013, 04:50 PM
god I hope not, it would be annoying to have to avoid the lets play because they are using the dont play first route

I mean worst case scenario I have something to keep pushing me to learn on my own I suppose.

Reiu
May 15th, 2013, 04:55 PM
I really only changed my mind about doing an LP when I realized that I'd already got some of the most painful parts to translate over with. So yeah, probably going with Gil. I don't want to have to do those ridiculously long SG conversations again for some time. :/


god I hope not, it would be annoying to have to avoid the lets play because they are using the dont play first route

Really, Gil's spoilers are cryptic enough that they're only recognizable as spoilers once one has already completed both the Servant and CCC routes. Nasu's insistence was probably in fact because Gil's more geared towards the CCC route (the existence of which most did not realize until after the first playthrough), what with BB's extra scenes and all. And because his SG conversations lead right into a certain scene exclusive to that route.

Besides, Gil is the best when it comes to interacting with certain other Servant.

(My choice for MC would be based on the servant.)

Excuse me, but I don't know the terminology. Does this mean you don't have the need to grind in the dungeons (if there are still dungeons at all)?

New Game Plus makes everything about a thousand times easier. Winning the early bossfights in one turn.

But at the same time that makes it less interesting to watch.

I could totally help with that. (As in battling with a lower/the recced level.) Besides I need a reason to play CCC again.

you need to play games, at all.

Fixed, for weird truth.

Although it's debatable if I need to. :p

Mh, I understand. On the one hand, it's easier for the LPer (and we all know how important this is). And after all, I get the feeling fights aren't what is interesting in CCC.

On the other hand, enemies falling like leaves could lead to... anti-climatic situations.

In the end, whatever is best for the LPer.

To be fair, while the fights mostly dont need much strategy (the bossfights sometimes do tho), they DO look pretty.

Since you are going to approach CCC route, I guess MC would be the best choice.

When did our friendship go so sour?

Then again, if it was me, I'd just do an LP of Nero's servant route and stop there. Because it doesn't get any better than that.

The road to school, a pleasant sunny morning.

I walk along the road that I still can’t quite remember,
even though I really should’ve gotten completely used to it by now.

I arrived soon in front of the school.

There’s still plenty of time.
Students similarly uniformed pass through the main entrance, chattering congenially.

As was usual, I too head for the entrance.

------and.

Feeling that I was called, I speed up my pace.
Before the entrance stood the student council president, a friend of mine,
Ryuudou Issei.

Come to think of it...

I seem to remember that they’re enforcing the school rules with extra stringency starting today,
with inspections to crack down on rule-breakers.

Issei: “Good morning!
Fine weather again this morning, quite excellent I say!
Ideal conditions for learning!

Hmm?
What’s with that look,
like you suspect me of having eaten something strange?

What? Inspections?

You say some strange things.
No such event was announced.
Are you certain it isn’t a mistake in your records?”

…...It seems so.
Even I’m puzzled as to why
I’d mistakenly thought that today was “that day.”

“It’s nothing,” I smile to Issei, and made to head for the school building.

Issei: “Ah, wait a second.
Actually, I need you to do me a favor.

Sorry, but before you go to the classroom,
could you go close the door of the storage room on the first floor?
I’d forgotten to lock it.

My role does not permit me to move from here.
Would you be so kind?”

The storage room on the first floor......
If I remember correctly, it was all the way to the end of the corridor to the left of the stairwell.

I have plenty of time before homeroom,
and it was a request from none other than Issei; I have no reason to refuse.

Issei: “I see, that’s good to hear!
You see, all the other students merely pass by me.
You’ve saved me a lot of trouble.

…...Honestly.
What with the addition of the strange faculty member and such,
lately it’s been quite stressful even for me.

If only there were one more role-holder like you,
those like me and her of the nurse’s office could breathe more easily...

Mm. No, I’d said something inconsiderate.
The student council isn’t something to force people into.

This is the key to the storage.
I will see you later, then. Have another good day with no regrets!”

The student council president said his thanks with a flourish,
and returned to his surveillance of the main entrance.

Even though he’d said that there weren’t inspections or anything.

The purposefulness of the student council member is like that of a well-calibrated machine.

I take my leave of Issei and head for the school building,
squinting at the sunlight that could be either that of early spring or that of early summer.

In this way,
another day is about to begin again.

Either way, hopefully the pace should pick up once summer starts for good. Meanwhile it's just short snippets hastily translated in my spare time, but I figured that posting was probably better than sitting on them.

The translation itself is likely going to stay pretty slipshod, though. Considering the amount of text, I doubt that I can realistically get anywhere close to finishing it by myself otherwise, so I'll leave the fine-tuning up to your suggestions.



http://youtu.be/HfxJXHZkv7g

….....?!

I experienced a sudden sharp pain in my left hand.
When I look at it in surprise to see what was wrong......


―――On the back of my hand,
there was a bruise that almost looked like some sort of symbol.

…...Though I have zero recollection doing so, I wonder if I’d injured my hand somewhere...?

The pain soon receded.
My left hand moves fine and all, so it was probably just a bout of lightheadedness.
Breathing deeply, I recover myself and hurry along.




Incidentally, for reasons familiar to those who have played Extra, choosing any of the other three Servants results in there being only two Command Spells in this scene instead.

[System: By pressing the START button,
the next objective will be displayed]

(Objective: Lock the door of the storage at the end of the corridor on the first floor)



This is the entrance.
As for the purpose of this door...


…......
…......…......
…......…......…......…......I’m not sure.


Issei had called it the storage,
so it must be the place to stow away things no longer in use.

In any case, there’s no need for me to go inside.

I take out the key from my pocket,
thinking that I’ll just lock up quickly and hasten to the classroom.

…...Hmm?
Just now, wasn’t there some noise coming from inside......?

Since I was entrusted with this task, I can’t afford to be negligent.

I put my ear to the door and listen.
And…...

??? : “But anyways, I pretty much have nothing to do~
Not lonely though, nope. Snacks right into the gullet whenever I’m bored.

Mm~, how’s this for comfort, just hanging about and doing nothing~?
I’m seriously lucky~

Actually, everyone’s just too worked up.
Too serious. Too desperate. I’ll just leave that kind of religious warfare
to the PKers, seriously.

I mean, it’ll all be fine and dandy so long as I hide here until the winner’s announced, y’know?
Winning without fighting, Jinako-san is seriously a genius LOLOL”


…...Clearly, there’s someone inside.

I knock and call out, “Is there someone in there?”

???: “?!”

…...The suspicious racket lasted about a minute.

Mentally preparing myself, I knock again.
“I’m coming in,” I declare, and enter the storage room.

Lots of voice acting from this point on; one reason why I chose to do the LP with videos rather than screencaps.

Not going to bother with most of the cultural references, so those interested can ask Ossan or someone about them. Jinako is an absolute nightmare to translate for me. And I'd thought Gil was bad.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ON56W5gbFM

I'm none too eager to get mixed up in this, but here it was.

If only this person had been a little better at hiding,
I could’ve at least pretended to not notice,
but this is just asking for attention.

And so, I take a deep breath and―――

http://i.imgur.com/353RejP.png

>Whoever’s inside, please come out.

???: “T-there’s nobody inside!

I’m just a talking locker!
Steel! A chunk of steel!
Honest-to-goodness heavy metal―――!”

Whoever was in the locker was struggling desperately to close the locker from inside.

However, the door refuses to shut.
In terms of body volume, Person A simply does not fit in the locker.

http://i.imgur.com/05UkzzC.png
If so, I will open it.
>If so, I will close it.

In a turnabout stroke of inspiration, I decided to help this person hide.

I put my weight on the door of the locker and push with all my strength.

http://i.imgur.com/yqJgxBo.png

???: “W-w-what are you doing?!
I-i-impossible, it’s physically impossible!
My, my insides―――!”

???: “Ugh, guh.....
Curse all this flab, bouncing around even inside a locker...”

???: “......And who’re you, by the way?
I want to report you right this moment for
invading the sacred territory of a girl’s room, seriously.”

Frowning, the fishy stranger glares at me indignantly.

I feel like I should be the one asking the questions,
but being stubborn here might just make matters worse.

So I first told her my name and class number before making my inquiries.

Who was she, seeing as she's obviously not a student?
And what girl’s room, where?

???: “It’s obviously a girl’s room no matter how you look at it.
It just looks a bit messy since I haven’t cleaned it for about a month.”

It can’t be helped, y’know?
There’s no housekeeper here, see.
It sure is hard living in hiding......”

Living in hiding......?
Here?

???: “Uhh, whoops, you didn’t hear that!
Damn, I’d accidentally let my guard down because you looked so unimpressive...

Uhhh, I’m Jinako Karigiri.
I’m a substitute teacher of this school, and
currently sort of a storage security guard a joking 2ch euphemism for NEET is “home security guard”, I guess?”

S-substitute teacher?
This slob?

Jinako: “Meh, I won’t deny that I’m a slob.
It’s troublesome to be found out as a competent person,
so I’m taking it easy on purpose...kinda.”

―――I see.

In other words, a useless person lying about doing nothing, are you.

Jinako: “That would be just a plain old NEET.
They’re cute in their small-fry way,
but I’d like you to not confuse me with them, honestly.

After all, Jinako-san is an elite.
I do serve as the advisor for a number of clubs, you see.
Like the Go-Home Club and the Go-Straight-Home Club and the Fraternity of Loners.”

Jinako thrusts out her chest proudly,
causing the strap of her bag to strain her shirt even further.

She described herself to be a substitute teacher.
…...Though that’s highly questionable, I’m pressed for time at the moment, and in any case she doesn’t seem like a bad person.

Seeing as she’s living in the storage room,
I gave her its key and asked her to take care of locking the door.

Jinako: “Yes! Key to the storage, score―――!
I’d been wanting this for a long time―――!
With this I can hole up in here even more!

So, you can leave already.
Jinako-san is very busy with the routine work
of patrolling the forums.”

Jinako gestures at the exit encouragingly.

She really needn’t have bothered, since
there wasn’t much time left before homeroom starts anyways; I made to exit the room quickly.

Jinako: “Wh....w-w-w-wait a little.
I didn’t think you would really just get out after being told to get out.
You sure are straightforward, Kishinami-san.

Or is it that, you know? Is it weird here.....?
Like, is it dirty,
or does it maybe give off the stench of a loser,
or does it just seem like some place that you wouldn’t want to get close to....?

To get down to the point, am I weird?”

http://i.imgur.com/EjFevcf.png
You are.
>You’re not.

Jinako: “......Really?”
http://i.imgur.com/EjFevcf.png
You are.
>You’re not.

Jinako: “.......Really?”
http://i.imgur.com/EjFevcf.png
You are.
>You’re not.

Jinako: “I-I see......
It’s not like I can’t believe you if you insist...I mean, actually I’d like to believe you, but...

Where’s the proof for that?
Why can you be so certain, Kishinami-san......?”

‘Because I know people who’re even stranger.’

…...some such answer came to mind, but that’s not it.

Having just met her,
I don’t know what kind of person Jinako Karigiri is.

That I can nevertheless assert she’s not strange is simply―――

http://i.imgur.com/PtdTt0f.png
>Because everybody's ‘weird’ in their own way.

Jinako: “―――.

I-is that so. You sure are confident.
You mean to say that what’s 'normal'
is ambiguous to begin with, huh.

It was a boring answer,
but I guess it was honest.
You’re pretty occult, Kishinami-san.

Oh, and it’s almost time for homeroom.
Being late is bad. After all, unlike me,
you’re someone who should carry on earnestly.

Well then, be careful out there.
It’s just going to end up the same no matter what,
but work hard to at least make it not too painful, fighto~”



…..Somehow or another, I was expelled from the storage room.

I hear clanking sounds from the door.
It seems to have been cautiously locked from the inside.

Jinako Karigiri.

Marveling that there was someone like her among the participants,
I leave the dark storage room behind.

I don't know, for an actual patch I'd feel comfortable submitting only the stuff I'd spent at least a decent amount of time rechecking and editing. Which, due to time constraints, would probably exclude most of this LP, with the exception of parts relevant to mechanics, lore, and so on.

Oh, I guess I should mention that names are transliterated as they appear, in the order they're written in. So Japanese names will be kept in Japanese order (surname first) and Western names in Western order.

http://youtu.be/-ntEpGd07DE

I enter classroom 2-A.
Though lots of things have happened, homeroom hasn’t started yet.

As I settled myself down at my desk,
a friend of mine, Matou Shinji, came over.

Shinji: “Hey, Kishinami.
You’re barely on time today, what happened?
I’d thought that doggedness was your only strong point and all.

Oh, did you get hooked on Piece Journal or something?

Give up, it’s not a place for someone mediocre like you.
After all, it’s for the chosen players....
Yes, where only a handful of game champions have the right to speak
and garner fervent admirers!

Get it? It’s a castle of genius for my sake, me,
current battle-score 780000, world ranking number two!”

Matou Shinji.
As can be seen, someone with a personality like what you get by
blending self-consciousness and elitism and boastfulness in a mixer.

For some reason or another we’d hung out for years, and he often comes up to chat like this.

Though there are some faults with his personality,
both his grades and his gaming aptitude lived up to his boasts.

“If only he’d read the atmosphere, he’d really be an idol,”

goes the held consensus among the girls of the school, apparently.

And this Piece Journal that Shinji mentioned
is a huge European forum,
commonly known as PJ.

Rather than a place to trade and share ordinary information,
it’s an esoteric lair of self-proclaimed experts.

Leo: “I see that you’re making as many conquests on the Internet as ever, Shinji.
―――Heh.”

Shinji: “What’s with that laugh just now?
Have something to say, Leo?
If you’ve got a problem, then let your scores do the talking.”

Leo: “No, it’s simply that I just witnessed someone making a real-life conquest.
A stratified society is cruel indeed. It does make me reconsider.”

…...Leo directs his calm smile at me.
He’s referring to what happened at the stairs earlier.

Leonardo B. Harvey.
A recent transfer student.
The scion of a certain famous Western conglomerate,
and a wunderkind who’d skipped several grades.

Though I’d at first been unnerved by the sheer difference in social standing and ability,
by now it’s usual for us to make small talk like this.

It was.....I feel like we were able reach understanding with Leo
thanks to a certain something....

Well, if I can’t remember,
then it must have been something insignificant and ordinary.

Leo: “By the way, Shinji,
is that rumor still around on PJ?
The Holy Grail War, or some such.”

Shinji: “Yeah, it is.

‘Hark ye, mages, for now is the time to vie for supremacy.
The Holy Grail shall grant any wish of the last standing―――’

Some clichéd announcement like that.
Nobody knows who’s running it,
or even how to join.

It sure is suspicious.
The mods are leaving it alone and all;
who knows what it's all about.”

Holy Grail War―――?

Something about that......I feel like I’ve heard somewhere before―――

Leo: “Still, it's certainly intriguing.
Grant any wish, it says.

For example, what kind of wish would you make, Hakuno-san?”

Wish?
I can’t think of anything off the top of my head.

There’s plenty that I want,
but those are all just things that I could acquire if I worked for them.

The phrase “any wish” seemed to me, in other words, to imply
“something that no matter what one cannot acquire by oneself.”

At the moment, I really can't think of any extravagant wish like that.

Leo: “I see.
That’s very much like you, Hakuno-san.”

Shinji: “What about you, Leo?
Would you happen to have some kind of shocking wish or something?”

Leo: “Of course. It is for that purpose that I transferred into Tsukumihara―――

―――Hmm?
…...That’s strange.
I transferred into Tsukumihara because of my father....yes?”

That’s right, I answer.
Along with his older brother,
Leo transferred into this school for just half a year.

Though I don’t remember when I'd learned that,
the fact itself was clearly recorded.

Leo: “Yes, I thought so.
It seems that I was confused for a moment there.

I know, let’s try asking Julius-niisan next.
He seems like he would have an interesting wish.”

Shinji: “......You know.
Why did the topic turn to that gloomy guy all of a sudden?

Going by order,
shouldn't it be me who's asked next?!”

Julius is the name of Leo’s older brother.

He’s sort of like a butler,
and takes care of Leo’s transportation.

The sight of Leo alighting from the Rolls-Royce every morning never fails to inspire admiration among the students.

Shinji: “Uh. Hey, are you two listening?
I’m a continental game champ, you know?
Isn’t there like, a better way to treat me?”

http://i.imgur.com/YH6DZUM.png
Okay, okay, what's your wish then?
>Please wait until after you become number one.

Shinji: “Guh.....you sure hit a sore spot there...

Europe’s top gamer, that one with the number one total score, huh...
It’s true I’m getting too complacent with being number two.
But just you watch. I’ll definitely win the next campaign.

That's just a run-of-the-mill gamer,
an addict who’s only where she is because of the huge amount of time she sunk into the game.

In terms of pure technique, judgment, and inspiration,
I'm obviously superior.

Watch me, Kishinami, Leo.
Next week I’ll shove aside that Jinako
and become the top gamer for good.”

Leo: “Certainly, the next campaign is the place for you to shine.
Good luck. On the day you become number one, I too shall join in the celebration.”

Shinji: “So it’s set, right?! Did you hear that, Kishinami?
Next week it’ll be a big party for me at Leo’s mansion!
You have to look forward to it, all right?!”

In the midst of the chatter, the homeroom bell rang.

Our homeroom teacher is that hopelessly boisterous one.

Really, the bell’s kind of unnecessary, since her violent footsteps’ll be reverberating all the way down the corridor any time now...

Any time......now......?

http://youtu.be/XoQRXxAxotA


------Faced with an unexpected turn of events, the students gulp.


The classroom fell to a buzzing silence.
The one who stepped in was a woman who wore a habit
that nobody’s seen before, that one does not see in a school.

Age, about mid-twenties.
Even when clothed in a severe habit.
her calm eyes and graceful figure
retained their radiant feminine charms.

Perhaps they were rendered timid by her aura;
without exception, every student watched her head to the lectern without a word.

However, my circumstances alone were a bit different.

After all, I’d just made her acquaintance in an outrageous fashion.

???: “I’m sorry for giving you all a fright this early in the morning.
It’s very understandable that you would be perplexed.
Would you all mind if I introduce myself?”

Taking in the bewilderment of the students with composure...
no, with amusement, the nun bows gracefully.

It was a gesture that
swept its way into people’s hearts, perfect like the breeze.

???: “My name is Fujimura Taiga.
I will be teaching at this school from today on.
It is very nice to meet you all.”

Shinji: “---------------, whoa.”

Shinji, whose first impressions always start out negative,
had instantly fallen head over heels.

It appears that Shinji is weak to the charms of a motherly woman.

Leaving that aside,
it can’t be helped that Shinji would be enraptured.

Everything about the nun’s...Fujimura-sensei’s appearance was utterly pure.

That.....I wonder if that’s what’s called “benevolence.”

Her voice, posture, eyes, and smile
all radiated the utmost gentleness.

It’s just that....

It’s just that....a vague feeling of wrongness nudges at me.

Like, the name Fujimura Taiga seems to evoke a different image......

Fujimura: “Hmm?
The one sitting back there is....Hakuno-san?”

Shinji: “W-what?!”

Leo: “-------.”

Since our eyes met and all, I greet her awkwardly.

In response---she smiled a smile of the finest quality
that seemed like it would melt any who looked upon it.

Fujimura: “What a pleasant coincidence!
Thank you very much for earlier.
I can’t forget such a passionate caress...”

Shinji: “H-how could you steal a march on me, Kishinami?!
Who do you think you are to know Taiga-sensei?!
And before that, what’s ‘caress’ even supposed to mean?!”

Leo: “It refers to lovers nuzzling, I believe.
Hakuno-san was most proactive,
with brutishness unbecoming of a student.”

Shinji: “What’re you doing, Kishinami,
you know you can’t fall in love with the teacher, right?!
Isn’t that often told in manga too?!”

With Leo’s lethal pronouncement,
the classroom became embroiled in a whirl of jabbering.

The female students lighting up their eyes at gossip,
the male students making a racket in jealousy,
Shinji fuming with indignation,

and Fujimura-sensei, who, even witnessing such ruckus,
merely waved her hand affably.

…...I sigh, frowning.

It appears that my ordinary days
have been disrupted by a huge upheaval......

Rani: “Good evening.
I see that you have finally woken, Hakuno-san.
However―――

You are late by seven months, eight hours and twelve minutes.
Should I underestimate you for this?
Or have I overestimated you thus far?”

I couldn’t help but be taken aback by the sudden occurrence.

Without even batting an eye, the girl had abruptly began to speak of me in a halting manner.

She was, to sum it up in one word, exotic.
Coffee-toned skin, and a pure white coat.
Her slender and straight figure could even be described as androgynous.

However.....even if Tsukumihara was lax with its uniform code,
her outfit was no longer anywhere even close to a uniform......
I mean, hasn’t she forgotten to equip various vital things?

Rani: “Are you listening, Hakuno-san?
Though I am mild in my emotional fluctuations,
this time alone it exceeds even my tolerance.

Such was the duration of the time I waited that
I’d even searched for, became engrossed in, and meditated on a play of Samuel Beckett’s.

I worried about your health,
I despaired in the situation you and I have been put in,
I am currently indignant about you showing up nonchalantly.

―――In short.
Are you able to correctly guess what manner of condition I am in right now?”

Yes.
To put it simply, very very angry.

…...But this sure was unusual.
As far as I knew,
she’s never voiced such dissatisfaction.

I’ve known her for a relatively long time,
so that shouldn’t be wrong.

Her name is Rani VIII.

A super elite who was invited to Tsukumihara as an authority on electronic engineering.

Having apparently been brought up in a research facility,
she was unused to normal school life, especially when it came to friends.
That I’d nevertheless become friends with her was―――

Yes, I remember. It was that time she’d saved me with her knowledge,
when I got injured in the woods.

Though she tended to be curt,
when I got to talking to her I found that she was principled and noble-minded.

…..However.
That Rani was currently very angry.

“What’s making you so upset?”

When I try asking her that―――

Rani: “Why? That is because Hakuno-san―――
Hakuno-san―――
You never――――――

…...Ahem.
Pardon me. The reason is clear.
It is because you were late. That must be it.

As to why, that is because that reason is the most appropriate
for me to be indignant.”

Rani said this assertively.

…..Though I don’t really want to point it out, it can’t be helped.
I replied that she herself obviously didn’t know why she was upset.

Rani: “Silence, boy!”

S-silence, b-boy......?!

Rani: “I repeat, I am indignant.
A schedule is something to be followed correctly.
Please change your ways. No―――

I must make you change your ways.
That is the best and most appropriate, most excellent answer.

To make the frivolous nonfrivolous.
To make the unpricipled principled.
To control those who can’t be left to their own devices―――

―――Artistic.
It is the simplest equations that are the most divine.
Teacher, I too have understood.

Excuse me, I’ve recalled something I needed to do.
Good-bye, then.
I look forward to our next meeting.”

Rani turned and walked away, long hair swaying behind her,
as if nothing had happened.
Mid-stride―――

Rani: “Incidentally, the title of the play is ‘Waiting for Godot.’
Do you know of it?”

…...Maybe the setting sun got into my eyes; I suddenly felt lightheaded.

Come to think of it......I have a feeling I was talking to someone just now.

It’s just my imagination.
It’s surely just my imagination.

As I lightly shook my head to dispel the dizziness,
a familiar figure came into sight.

Shinji: “Huh. You were still here.
It’s not like you have any clubs or anything, you sure have lots of time on your hands.
Is wasting your lifetime away that much fun?”

Though Shinji’s prickliness was the same as always,
it seems to me that his words were more barbed than usual.

When I ask what happened―――

Shinji: “What? Nothing really.
As you can tell, I’m the same as always.

More importantly, you know who Tohsaka Rin is, right?

I’d thought that she was the only girl on my level in this school and all,
but really, she’s not as good as she looks.”

…...It would appear that he had some trouble related to Tohsaka Rin.

He must have made another pass at her,
even though she’d already scathingly rejected him last time―――

―――last time?

Was Shinji the type of person to try over and over with someone who’d turned him down?

Shinji: “What’s with that blank look?
Oh, could it be that you’re after Tohsaka too?

Do what you want. See if I care about some violent woman like that.
Wouldn’t she still be at the garden?
I’m not going to have anything to do with it.”

Shinji vanished into the classroom,
probably to get his bag and go home.

I don’t have anything left to do at school. I can just leave now.

―――And yet, for some reason I can’t get rid of the strange feeling nagging at me.

I wonder if I should stop by the garden before I go home......
She might be able to give me some advice.

With truly no reason at all, I froze in my tracks.

Rather than that “for some reason I had stopped ,” it’s as though
that I’d recalled “for what reason I was here”......

My left hand throbbed with pain.

Shaking my head, I put my hand to my chest and check my pulse.

It’s almost as if my head and heart were the organs of separate organisms.

The drum of my chest. The primordial beat pleads thus.

I mustn’t stay here.
I mustn’t stay here.
I mustn’t stay here―――!

…...A hallucination, or is it?
Listening to my heartbeat
brings an indescribable anxiety over me.

A vague anxiety that gouges my chest.
And it was such that I felt my heart might stop dead.

The hallucination that crawls up from my spine repeats, in a voiceless voice,

“I can’t be here.”

But―――if so,

(The next update might be a little late, since I'm feeling a bit sick. Apologies in advance.)



http://youtu.be/-HA5a2LcLWI

???: “Hey, you! Kishinami-kun!
Don’t get close so casually like that!

How many times do I have to tell you
that I’m not friends with you or anything?”

I was yelled at in a shrill voice before I even got to say anything.

Slightly overwhelmed, I look again at the girl in front of me.

She was, to put it in one word, flamboyant.

The black leather boots, the form-fitting clothes,
all add to the compact image.

However.....even if Tsukumihara was lax with its uniform code,
her outfit was no longer anywhere even close to a uniform, was it?

Rin: “What’s with that curious look?
It’s not like it’s been a long time, right?
We had lunch together yesterday and everything.

Well, you’ve always been kind of rude.
The first time I’d met you you were also staring at my face......
wait, so you’re looking at my legs―――?!

Y-you’ve got a uninhibited routine as usual, I see.
I’m not going to tell you to not look,
but if you want to look then pay up, you hear me?!"

She seemed to be about to grab onto me and shake me violently at any moment.

Though I couldn’t help but feel exasperated at her high-handedness,
I was not particularly troubled.

After all, I knew her well.

Her name is Tohsaka Rin.

The idol of the school, and a high-flyer with top ranking grades.

Though she has all the looks of an elegant young lady,
her freewheeling personality unfortunately causes
her romping spiritedness to show through the moment she opens her mouth.

…....No, I guess in this case I should say “fortunately,” rather.

I can’t count how many times I’ve been saved
by her vigor and positivity.

Rin: “......You know, you’re too close, I said.
You and I are enemies and all,
so it’ll be troublesome later on if you get too cozy.

Really.
You’re too quick to trust,
just because we fought together that one time.”

…...Enemies......fought together......

That’s a strange way to put it.
It’s true that we’d compared test scores
and competed in club activities,
but it wasn’t anything that hostile......

Rin: “Anyways, it’s almost the main event, right?
I have enough on my plate already,
so this is it for playing along with you.

See you, then.
Let’s meet again if events play out that way.

…...Or actually,
you definitely have to win your way through the rounds.
It’s a promise, okay?!”

Rin walks away in her usual manner, brushing aside her hair with her hand.
Mid-stride,

“......Huh?
Why am I picking a fight with that guy.....?”

she tilted her head in puzzlement at her own action, and

This section requires a quotation mark to end Tohsaka talking. I normally wouldn't bother to comment about this, especially considering how awful my own grammar is, but considering this is a translation I decided to mention it.

Anyway, thanks for the translation. Gilgamesh soon, yay.

I am extremely pleased by this matchup of characters because I want to find out why it's all over Pixiv. And then I want to ship it and frolic in having a ship that is commonly available on Pixiv.

Well, I'm just saying I like how it was done here: http://forums.nrvnqsr.com/showthread.php/1423-Run-HolyGrailWar-Exe-Fate-Extra-LP-Image-Heavy

It felt like I was actually playing the game. But I'm not loading it on my phone or anything. I treat it the same as loading up the Fate LP archive when I want to go find something about EXTRA.

But whatever works best for you, is what you should do, Reiu.

Yeah. don't make the expressions match. It's a pain unless you have a system.


When I was trying to do this, I was trying to do a matching expressions thing.

IT IS A GIANT PAIN PLEASE DO NOT SUBJECT YOURSELF TO IT (even though it's nice how CCC has so many more expression sprites than Extra did)

Thanks for the warning, guys. I'll keep that in mind whenever the temptation gets to me. (all those nice sprites...)

The day ends.
With the sunset, the school turns a shade of madder red.

At the entrance, students bustling about as they leave.
Mundane chatter and laughter.
The same sight as always, the same life as always.
Thinking that I too should leave soon, I reach for the shoe rack.

As though stricken ill by the shadow of dusk,
a girl was hunched over on the floor.

She......who was she?

Her breathing is ragged, and her face flushed.
Anyone can tell that she’s sick.

And yet nobody seems to notice.

The abnormality of the sight was enough to make me doubt my sanity....
no, of those around me.
It was beyond simply pretending not to see.

No one so much as glances her way;
some even step over her.

I―――

Help her up.
>Call out to her.

I called out to her, but she shows no sign of waking.
Though I felt apologetic doing so, I take a hold of her shoulders and shake her lightly.

Her pale eyes, delicate and dreamlike, open faintly.
Thin shoulders and arms covered in white.

???: “Oh.......
….....are you speaking to me?”

What a strange thing to say.
I can hear her voice and breath.
I’m holding her arm.

So of course I would help her up like this.
It’s only natural, I told her.

Sakura: “I’m.......Matou Sakura, a first year.
My assigned location is the nurse’s office, and my jurisdiction is the overseeing of everyone’s health.
Um, where are you assigned....?”

…...?

I have no answer to that.

I’m not in any student committees,
so I give her my name and classroom number.

Sakura: “Huh? You’re...one of the ordinary students......?
When even the student council members hadn’t noticed me, you......?”

Her breathing still uneven, Sakura looks up.

…...I feel sorry for her. It must have been hard,
both physically and mentally, with no one extending a helping hand.

“It’s all right now.”
I give her my shoulder.

Sakura: “――――――.”

At that simple gesture, the girl who’d introduced herself as “Sakura”
opened her eyes wide.

…...for some reason my breath caught.

One moment of blankness, like the witnessing of a miracle.

Sakura: “Kishinami-senpai.......
um.....is it all right if we talk some more......?”

Nodding, I pick up the first-year girl....Sakura.

Luckily, the nurse’s office was nearby.
I have to let her rest first.

The roughest yet, but I figure it's about time to revive this thread. Icons are coming soon™.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRilg37IK4w

…...............
….........
…...

…...Suddenly, I woke up.
It must be that atmosphere unique to the nurse’s office.
It seems that I dozed off while watching over Sakura.

The nurse’s office is peaceful.
It's far from the bustle of the rest of the school here.

Sakura is sleeping in the bed.
Since the teacher wasn’t here, I looked after her despite not being used to it.
…...Well, even if I say “look after,”
it’s not like I was able to do anything other than to set her on the bed and wipe her brow.

Sakura: “Mm.....”

Sakura lets a loud breath escape from her mouth.
It seems that she’s woken.

…..That’s good.
It’s been some time since then.
Her fever seems to have settled and all, so she should be fine.

Glancing over at the bed with relief,
my eyes met Sakura’s.

When I greet her, Sakura replies with a faint, but joyful smile.

Sakura: “Senpai......
…...I’m glad.
So it wasn’t a dream.......”

A look of pure gratitude.
Since all I’d done was carry her here, to be honest, it made me a little embarrassed.

To not let that show, I say to her:

Dream? That’s a bit dramatic, isn’t it?
>How’re you feeling?

It must be that her fever hasn’t gone away entirely.
I put my hand to her forehead and ascertain the temperature.

Sakura: “kya......!

Um, I’m okay,
I’m fine, so it’s okay!
If anything, I’m going to overheat like that!”

Sakura hurriedly flutters her hand
and pulls away.

……I scold myself.
Measuring the temperature by the forehead is only appropriate up to elementary school.
Of course it would be met with aversion for being childish.

Sakura: “Ah…um, though there’s still some headache,
my condition’s improved quite a bit.
It’s thanks to you, Hakuno-san.

Not only did you help me,
you’d even looked after me.
Thank you very much.”

Bowing, Sakura smiles gently.

……I wonder why.
Even though it’s really nothing unusual to be smiled at,
it still makes me feel uneasy, or should I say, embarrassed.

It would seem that sincere, straightforward gratitude is something that
warms the heart so.

In an effort to cover up how moved I was, I ask Sakura something.

Sakura: “Why I collapsed?
Actually…even I don’t know.

I felt something was different about the school building from usual,
so I went around the corridors to take a look……
and I started feeling dizzy around the entrance.

……Afterwards it’s just as you know.
Even if I called out to the students
nobody wouldn’t notice,

and I’d felt so helpless
I even seriously thought that I was going to be forgotten there.

It’s at that moment,
when you called out to me.”

So that’s what happened.
I’m curious as to why everybody ignored Sakura.
Or rather, I still can’t believe they did that, but it’ll do no good thinking about it now.

In any case, I’m glad that she’s fine, I replied.

Sakura: “Yes, it’s thanks to you, Hakuno-san…
no, senpai! As you can see, I’m full of energy!

But…um, may I also ask a question?
Did, um…
did anything strange happen to you today?”

There’s no way that there would be anything strange.
The customary life, the customary school, the customary classmates.

The teacher tripped at the lectern, just as always,
and everyone commented on it, just as always .
I went to class, I lined up in the canteen, I talked with my friends.

That’s right.
There’s no change anywhere.
Not one new thing will ever occur.

This place should be that kind of place.

Sakura: “I see.
Hehe, Fujimura-sensei is amusing, isn’t she?
She’s always so energetic that it makes me jealous.”

Sakura listens to that kind of mundane everyday talk with fascination.

Though to me they’re no more than events I’d already grown tired of seeing,
she’s full of interest.
The shine of her eyes seemed to me almost even yearning.

……Maybe that’s why.

When the listener seems to be enjoying herself so much, one can’t help but start to enjoy it as well.
Even the things that I hadn’t thought much of
came to seem different in conversation with her.

Sakura: “It makes me happy somehow.
Our school is full of people who can heal themselves
even if they get injured.

So even if I’m in charge of health,
I didn’t have much to do, and not many changes.

I guess this would be called ‘lonely.’
……um, I was only able to realize now.

And because you found me, senpai…..”

……Now that she mentions it.

Though there wasn’t/couldn’t have possibly been anything out of the ordinary,
what was with that incident at the entrance?

Why had the students ignored Sakura?

……Well, that’s in the past now.
I’ll just enjoy the conversation for th.e moment.

The conversation in the nurse’s office continues.

Not long after, the bell rings, urging students to leave.

Sakura: “Oh……it’s time, isn’t it……
I’m sorry to have kept you here.
Please walk home carefully, senpai.”

Seen out by Sakura, I leave the nurse’s office.

As I walk away, I look back one last time.

and I see her watching me leave with
a wistful, almost tearful expression.

…...I felt a sharp pain in my left hand again.
There’s a peculiar bruise on the back of it.

I’m not sure
if it’s because of my headache that I’m bothered by the bruise,
or if it’s because I have this bruise that I have a headache.

…...I know.
Before I go home again,         before another morning comes,
I’ll have someone take a look at this bruise.

Like Leo. Or Rin, or Rani.
Or Shinji, even.

Anyways, if I show these Command Spells
to someone whom I know, for sure―――

???: “The time limit has been reached.
An announcement to all remaining sentient lifeforms in the school building.

An unfortunate announcement.
The world view that you all have possessed until now
has collapsed.

A collapse of prices caused by inflation.

Along with the entirety of the Holy Grail War,
you have all been sold.

You are all  worthless.”


Wh---what was that broadcast?
No, more importantly, what’s this bizarre transformation―――?!

“Everyone’s going to be impaled―――

W-what’s happening―――?!
Alarmed, I look outside and see an abysmal darkness.

http://i.imgur.com/BTlzJkR.png

Let alone the entrance,
every single window was covered in black noise......!

I have to escape......!

It’s over for me if I come into contact with that black noise.
Since the entrance and the windows have been devoured by the noise,
I have no choice now but to run up the stairs......!
