Track 18: As A Senpai!
NITORI: Matsuoka-senpai! You’re amazing! Your time keeps shortening with each practice session!
NITORI: Doesn’t that make you happy?
RIN: I can’t be satisfied over something as little as that.
NITORI: …I thought so…
MIKOSHIBA: [loudly whispers] Matsuoka.
RIN: What, Captain?
MIKOSHIBA: You don’t get it, do you!
RIN: What don’t I get?
MIKOSHIBA: As a Senpai, you must always keep a wide outlook of your surroundings!
RIN: …What’s with this all of a sudden?
MIKOSHIBA: In the real world, it’s more than common to be kept on reserve because no matter how much you practice, your time never shortens! There’s always someone who can’t handle the bitter aftertaste!
NITORI: Eh, ah… I’m sorry.
RIN: Hey, Captain…!
MIKOSHIBA: Someone who has the possible chance of standing at the top mustn’t look at everything according to only his standards!
RIN: I got it, all right?
MIKOSHIBA: Do you, really? Then interact more with Nitori and help him out. You’re his Senpai.
NITORI: Eh… um… but I… err… well…
MIKOSHIBA: Don’t worry. I’ll be peeling my eyelids backwards and watching over you until you become a proper Senpai to your juniors!
NITORI: Um, it’s fine, I…
[MIKOSHIBA eyes RIN]
RIN: [sighs] Nitori…
RIN: Go swim. I’ll watch you and advise until your time shortens.
NITORI: Eh? T—Thank you! I’ll do my best!
RIN: Go and get ready. And… when we’re done, let’s go out to eat.
MIKOSHIBA: Hey, looking good! Hahahahaha!
