Chapter 3

“Twin tails?! Tying twin tails even in high school…?!”

 Plunging into my room, I collapse on top of my bed.
 The inside of my head is in complete disorder, but I feel like dying now due to not being able to bear the shame.

“Aah, sheesh… I can’t stand it.”

 Grumbling, I reach out for the hand mirror on my desk.
 Even though I can easily grasp it if I get up, I struggle while still lying on the bed. The mirror I manage to grab reflects the usual me.

 The amiable imouto-type underclassman, Torida Kii.
 Blond hair accompanied by blue eyes, along with a green ribbon-type necktie that’s the colour for 1st-years, and a long-sleeved beige cardigan.
 … She’s the current me, a capturable character.


 I tear off the thin ribbons that holds my twin tails together on both sides.
 Having recalled my previous life and sorted out my memories, I’m able to look at myself objectively.
 Something like twin tails, should be graduated from along with knapsacks! [1]
 Ruffling my hair roughly, I sort out the inside of my head.

 Even though I say it’s a galge, to be more precise, it’s a『Smartphone Social Game』.
 The gist is to enjoy the story where you come to get along with girls as you lead a school life.
 There are 50 female characters who appear, but there’s only 5 capturable characters in the story mode.
 And I’m one of those 5.

 The girls without stories appear separately from the story mode in the 『School Wandering Mode』. If you get close to them, it’ll be recorded in the 『Girls Compendium』, and if you go on dates with these 『Dateables』, you can unlock their anecdotes.
 Finding it appealing, the me from my previous life was quite into it, and even completed the Compendium.

 The reason I, who was also 『female』in my previous life, was addicted to this game which is a『galge』…
 It’s because this game had a 『female-oriented version』.
 The only difference in the female-oriented version is that the girls are changed into guys.
 5 people in the story and 50 appearing characters. The system is identical.
 Will it be easier to understand if I say it’s a 『galge』and an『otome game』with the same base?

 As a lover of otome games, I played the female-oriented Flower Garden Academy at first.
 Having immersed myself in the female-oriented Flower Garden Academy for about a year, I exhausted every playthrough and started dabbling in the male-oriented one.
 It was because it drew my interest. How is it different from the female-oriented version? What are the things that kindles guys?

 It was unexpectedly interesting when I gave it a shot.
 There’s no way such a girl exists! I constantly retorted, but as the same could be said for the otome game, we were selfsame in this regard.

 The current me, a.k.a. 『Torida Kii』, is a slightly cunning imouto-type, a girl who’ll elicit by saying 『I like you!』even as she acts bashfully.
 She’s a girl who blushes often and repeatedly goes『How cool!』or『Wonderful!』in a voice of approval, then 『Oh noes, you heard that!? How ditzy of me! So embarrassing… 』. That’s her standard behaviour.
 Cunningness also oozes from the way her fingers poke out slightly from the long sleeves of her cardigan.
 … This was how the me up until a while ago was.

“I want to die! Stupid, stupid!”

 I sandwich my head between my hands as I hit it.
 If only my memory will buzz off like this!
 … However, the cruel thing is, the dark history of my foolish behaviour from up till yesterday are etched deeply in my mind and heart.
 They’ll most likely not disappear till the day I die… I want to die.

… However, the me as of yesterday is certainly also『me』.
 Although I’m absolutely clueless why I reincarnated, I had been living as『Torida Kii』until now.
 Be it my parents, friends, or my surroundings, all these were cumulated by me, as Torida Kii.

 Even the feelings of love for senpai were mine.
 Swinging from joy to sorrow from his every word and casual actions, it was a part of me that I brought up.
 And yet, I realised.
 They say that『love is blind』, but the things that the me as of yesterday didn’t see…

 Senpai… senpai the『Protagonist』also built intimate relationships with『capturable characters other than me』.
 I can tell from their personal belongings, attitudes and speech.
 Their 『Capture Percentage』.
 Most likely, all the capturable characters are at the『Pre-Dating』stage.
 It’s a situation where you wait for their confessions.
 In actuality, I was about to do that.

 This is at the stage where all the stories have been cleared.
 In the game, for the 1st playthrough, the number of people you can capture and eventually tie the knot with, is 1 person.
 But in the 2nd playthrough, you can simultaneously capture a new character along with the character captured in the 1st playthrough.
 In other words, two-timing is possible.

 In that manner, in the 3rd playthrough, you can also capture the characters captured in the 1st and 2nd playthroughs. It’s three-timing.
 That way, you’ll eventually five-time and build a harem.
 Scum, thinking of it realistically, it’s exceedingly scummy.
 The current senpai is in a state similar to that scummy, five-timing harem one.

 Is that his innate nature?
 Or, like me, he remembers his『previous life』and is doing this with a goal in mind?
 Whichever it is, my heart hurts.

Perhaps, the harem and whatnot is my misconstrue.
 I want to believe in him.
 That’s why…

“Let’s make sure.”

 Please, may it be some kind of misunderstanding…
 I can only pray so.
