Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu Volume 12 Chapter 13
Question: Please fill in the correct year.
In the year ( ), Christianity was first introduced in Japan.
Kirishima Shouko's Answer:
"Yuuji confessed his love to me in the year 1549."
The number is correct, but the event is wrong.
Himeji Mizuki's Answer:
"Akihisa-kun confessed to me in the year 2022"
This teacher here is still waiting for the old Himeji-san to come back.
““Tell us what's that all about!!””
Once we saw the new school rule that was introduced, we stormed to the principal's office to roar out.
“So you damned brats finally came in?”
Once she saw me, the principal merely snorts in a bored manner,
“Old hag! That's what you mean by 'changing the school and correcting the mistakes'!? You ugly old witch!!”
“Yeah, I was mistaken after all. You have to be educated with more strictness, so I had to change the school rules.”
The principal doesn't look sorry at all. T-This damned old granny...!
“That's too much, principal!! That rule's too much!”
“...Please retract that school rule.”
“Since the second year valedictorian and salutatorian have asked me this, it's really hard for me to refuse here.”
“Alright, just keep quiet already, you brats.”
“And you said it's hard to reject us?”
“...You're not giving us any face...!”
This is the case even with the outstanding students Himeji-san and Kirishima-san requesting us.
What'll happen if it's me?
“Erm, old granny.”
“You won't even listen to what I say!?”
Her tone's even different from before! What's with this damned old granny!?
“Well, Akihisa, Himeji, Shouko, calm down and listen to what the old hag as to say.”
Yuuji, who came to the principal's office with us, said so.
On a side note, Minami, Hideyoshi, Muttsurini, Kudou-san, Kinoshita-san and Kubo-kun are all here with us. Us friends have to be together at all costs, that's why! (We're definitely not thinking of something trashy like trying to force the principal to accept our idea with numbers.)
“What I want to say? Well, it's fine, guess it's good for you to hear me out...no, even if you don't want to hear, I have to say this to get this out of my mind.”
The principal spoke with a growl in response to Yuuji's words. Huh? Did something happen?
“YOU DAMNED BRATS!!!”
She loud, sharp roar echoes in the principal's office.
“You actually did such a bad thing in such a noticeable place, and with the sponsor's inspector watching too!!”
Her expression has changed, and she looks really angry here. What?
“That bad thing?
“You destroyed a school facility, did such a dangerous thing, and even made a broadcast in the entire school!”
erm...I destroyed the fence, ran on the roof of the 4th level corridor, and confessed using the speakers at maximum volume...is that right?
“Erm, so what about that?”
“What do you mean 'what about that'!? The test summoning system's just there to give you motivation to study, and look what you did!? You did such a dangerous thing, and did that kind of a crazy love affair! Do you want to get the sponsors and the public to start sending in complaints!?”
Now that she said this, it really does seem that we went overboard there.
“It's true that to the public and the sponsors, these things aren't much besides complaint material.”
“It does seem that it's used to do other things besides studying.”
“...No matter how we improve our grades, it has nothing to do with them.”
Hideyoshi, Minami and Muttsurini nods as bystanders. We-Well, I think I do have the same view as the three of them.
While I'm remaining silent, Kudou-san asks beside us,
“Then principal, what's that school rule for?”
“That? That's some earnest advice that inspector brat gave me. I can't hide something that has happened, and we have to quickly deal with this matter strictly to get some appeal. If I do that, he'll be able to write a positive report for us, that.”
The words Linne-kun said to me after the summoning war appears in my mind. “But Akihisa, a hero isn't just for a certain person! A hero belongs to everyone, you know?” “That's why I did my best so that you can continue being a hero, Akihisa!”
“S-So that's how it is...?”
That damned Linne-kun...! I thought he's a cute kouhai that admires me, but this act is really unforgivable even for me...!
“Hm, in such a situation, what the principal did in response does seem right.”
“Yeah. Once the problem is found out, she dealt with it immediately, especially since it's such a major thing. It's hard for her to be told off.”
Kubo-kun and Yuuji calmly analyzed this. Uu...! I've nothing to argue against that...!
“Sorry to change the topic, principal. Though we do know the reason, won't this end up causing more troubles...?”
“Th-That's right! Everyone will definitely oppose! There'll be a ruckus in this school!”
“...It'll be dangerous if there's violence! Please take it back...!”
Kinoshita-san asks politely, while Himeji-san and Kirishima-san continues on from her words as they leaned forward.
And then, Minami places her hand on Himeji-san's shoulder.
“That won't do, Mizuki. We can't trouble the principal.”
Minami spokes in a strangely calm tone as compared to Himeji-san and Kirishima-san. Huh...?
“B-But, Minami-chan! It's too much to have a school rule that forbids love!”
“I do think this way too, but Mizuki, we can't possibly argue since we're the cause of it all. So—”
“Since you can't get together with Aki, just endure until graduation then♪. There's no choice since it's against the school rules.”
Minami shows a very impish grin. Why's that smile so evil looking? It's so different from that face she showed before my battle against Takashiro-sempai!
“M-Minami-chan, are you planning to wait till graduation and snatch Akihisa-kun during this time...?”
“No no, I do think that instead of being with a quiet person like you, Mizuki, I think a cheerful energetic girl like me is more suited to be with Aki!”
“Hm, I do say that I agree with that.”
“Th-That's not true! Akihisa-kun goes better with a girl like me that takes things more calmly!”
“Also, it's more disadvantageous for me if you go out with Aki, Mizuki. There's a need for overtime to make up for this difference.”
Yes yes Minami nods.
“So Aki, you better get ready. I'm serious after this too!"
“Minami-chan! You can't do that! Akihisa-kun's min—”
“Oh, Mizuki, it'll be against the rules if you continue on, you know? You have to obey the rules as a student.”
And then, Yuuji too nods his head,
“Yeah, it's like what Shimada said. Since we're students, we have to obey the rules. Also, we did cause such troubles in the first place. Got to take responsibility here.”
He probably agrees with Minami too. Th-This bastard.
“...Yuuji, I can't agree with your plan.”
“Hahaha, but it's against the rules, you know? No no no, I'm definitely not backing out because you're binding me too tightly. This is something the ones who started this have to take.”
“...No can do. I already came up with a plan to give birth to babies.”
“WE CAN'T DO THIS WHETHER THERE'S A NEW SCHOOL RULE OR NOT, YOU KNOW!?”
Why's this topic getting out of hand? This is bad...!
“Ku-Kubo-kun! What do you think?”
“I agree with the principal's actions wholeheartedly.”
That's weird!? Isn't Kubo-kun my ally here!?
The principal watches us yap away, and says,
“Speaking of which, I do want you guys to thank me.”
“Without this love forbidden rule, you and Sakamoto will be dealt quite the harsh treatment by your class, no?
I don't know, when did the principal know about the famous culture of our F class?
...Leaving aside that.
“Old hag, you're too naive.”
“Yeah, that's completely true. You don't know anything at all.”
Good grief Yuuji and I shrug our shoulders.
As expected, this principal's the all-knowing principal after all.
“Hear this out, old hag.”
“Those guys in our F class—”
“YOSHII!! SAKAMOTO!! GET OUT HERE!!!”
“NOW'S THE TIME FOR EVERYONE TO ENJOY THE PURGE!!”
“YES!!! DIE PARTY BEGIN!!!”
The principal's office door was kicked aside, and out classmates, armed with nailed bats, appear one after another.
““BANNING LOVE ALONE ISN'T GOING TO STOP THEM (YOU KNOW)!!””
Yuuji and I quickly move to the window, open it, and leap out.
“HOLD IT RIGHT THERE! YOSHII! SAKAMOTO!!”
“SWEAR THAT YOU'LL BREAK UP WITH HIMEJI AND KIRISHIMA AT THE EXECUTION PLATFORM!!!”
“WE'LL TORTURE YOU SLOWLY AND KILL YOU IF YOU DO THAT!!”
“WE'LL TORTURE YOU, HEAL YOU AND TORTURE YOU IF YOU DON'T SWEAR THAT!!”
They immediately give chase.
Seriously, this school is—
“This school's not boring at all!”
“That's enough. Let's run Akihisa! They're gonna kill us!”
There's still more than 1 year till graduation.
And it looks our busy days will continue on.
