sfx: Muwahhaaah
2: Oh, come on! I'm probably just tired from taking the test.
3: Hey, Harima! What are you taking him seriously for?!

5: Yeah, you looked like you were really stressed out during the sports festival too.
6: I've never been a class rep before, you know.

3: (Alright, hold on. I'll try to follow you here...
4: So then it was from the lockers... to about where you're sitting?
sfx: quiver

1: Seems like there are even bigger ones out there, though.
2: There may be ones along the Asian coast that reach the blackboard.
3: Niwato-kun...
4: (What coast?
5: Do you always think about stuff like that?

7: Why don't you try it, Kosuga-kun?
8: OK, all done!
sfx: whew

sfx: spin

1: /Today was a really weird day...

3: Next time I feel like I'm worrying too much, I'll start thinking about squids.
sfx: pop
4: (And that overlay...
5: /He sure has strange ways of reassuring people.

6: Naomichi? Why didn't you tell me you got out of the bath?
7: Ohh, sorry!

2: Apart from the rights to half of the land tax to these manors...
sfx: clack
3: clack

1: Yes! We put our strength together
2: and made iiiit!
3: I wasn't talking about the right to sleep!

3: Not yet.
4: Oooh, Giant Squid!
5: (Colossal squid?
6: They eat...

sfx: beep
1: One, two, three, four!
2: [Sperm whales, the largest carnivores in the world.
3: /Don't think about it, don't think about it!
4: [Over 90% of its prey is made up of some type of squids.
sfx: rumble
5: (Let's have a good match today!

sfx: rumble
1: [Over 90% of its prey is made up of some type of squids.

5: Heeeey, sensei!
sfx: dash
6: I can't believe that guy actually became class rep.
sfx: dash
7: Hey, you!

1: /Yeah... I guess I can't believe
2: /I did either...
3: Man...

1: Haha...
2: This is so stupid.
3: /Whether I'm laughing or crying,
4: /Far far away, they're swimming around somewhere.

sfx: blub
1: Ahhh... I'm surrounded by nothing but things that I need to figure out how to do.

1: Oh, Harima-san just went to the nurse's office!
sfx: fshoooo
2: Huh? To wake me up? Wow, someone even got my bag together for me.
3: I'm sure she'll be back soon.
4: Wajima-kun wrote out a schedule memo for you.
5: (Fufu.
6: So that means I have to decipher his handwriting? Yikes!

1: Hey, Niwato-kun. You know... squids are more interesting than I thought.
3: Yeah. Squids have their own troubles, you know?
4: Troubles?
5: When I first heard you talking about them, I was really surprised,
6: but after I started taking out books on them from the library, I really started to get into it.
7: I wonder what makes us so curious about them?
8: Hmmm...

1: The scale
2: is probably what makes it so fun.
3: Huh? The scale?
4: I mean, think about it.
5: We're always doing the same things in the same places.
6: Worrying, feeling happy, standing up to face things...

1: Living a life in a limited space and working your hardest to follow the rules
2: is probably similar no matter where you do it.
sfx: smack
3: From here on out,
4: no matter where we go...

1: Not like anyone can judge whether that's good or bad.
2: But that's exactly why we should remember that in a different place from here,
3: there exists a completely different set of rules,
4: and completely different beings following them.

1: You shouldn't just cram your heart
2: into the place where you currently are.
sfx: clamor

1: ...probably.
2: Probably?!
3: Maybe I just like saying weird stuff to get attention.
4: With such a straight face?
5: ...guess we'll just have to keep working hard to dodge the ball...
6: yeah, I guess.
