Chapter 33 The Rumor of ‘The Strongest First-Year Student’

Edited by: Kanaa-senpai

 ”Hey Izumi, is this a good place?”

 On Thursday lunchtime, the day after the selection of participants for the sports festival

 Maisaka came to Chihiro, just like yesterday

 Without waiting for Chihiro’s reply, he took a seat in front of him and pulled out a loaf of bread from a convenience store bag. Today there are three croquette buns

 ”Aren’t you bored with the same bread all the time?”

 ”Well. Isn’t it more comforting to have the same taste all the time?”


 Chihiro couldn’t understand the feeling. So, he smiled bitterly and took out his lunch box to pause

 (I mean, what is it that he wants today?)

 ”Oh, yes yes. It’s about the sports festival. I wanted to have a strategy meeting. I thought Izumi would be a good person to talk to”

 ”A strategy meeting?”

 ”Yeah. I mean, you want to win anyway, right? There’s a prize, after all”

 Chihiro nodded, “I see”

 Well, the prize for the first place team was a coupon worth 1,000 yen, which could be used at the school cafeteria and at the store. Although it’s not something worth pursuing, at least it will motivate the team to win

 ”But, what exactly is the strategy? I think the only thing that sounds like a strategy is deciding the team”

 ”Hmm, that’s true”

 Chihiro asked as he picked up his lunch, which today consisted mainly of fried tofu and boiled eggs, and Maisaka smiled

 Then, Maisaka took a bite and swallowed a third of the croquette bread

 ”To be honest, you’re right, but that’s boring. So,let me at least tell you how the battle is going”

 Well, Maisaka is really telling the truth

 And it’s good that everything is peaceful, because Chihiro doesn’t want to talk about blackmailing players of the enemy team or illegal sabotage here

 Well, it’s about prediction of the battle situation

 As he has [Accumulation] ability, Maisaka must like such things. He may have wanted to actually make a plan if possible


 ”…From the way you say it, it’s tough?”

 ”Well, yeah. After all, this class is probably the weakest of the year”

 After saying that, Maisaka stuffed his mouth with croquette bread

 Chihiro couldn’t help but stop his hand as Maisaka spoke in a very matter-of-fact manner

 ”But aren’t Kamishiro-kun and Fukami-san joining too?”

 A questioning voice

 It’s neither Chihiro nor Maisaka who said the exact same thing that Chihiro had thought of

 But it’s Aika, who was sitting with Maria on the other side of the desk. Because of their position, Maisaka’s voice could reach her. It seems that Aika is curious and interrupts them

 Maria, on the other hand, is taking a bite of her sandwich, seemingly uninterested. Maisaka smiles as he watches them

 ”Well. It’s true that we have two ranked C students… well, three including Takatsuki-san. The rest of the class has one, so it seems like an advantage, but it’s not”


 ”Because there’s a rank B in A class”

 ――There’s a student in Class 1-A who’s been a rank B since he entered the school

 Chihiro had heard that story before, too

 This is the reason why he had recognized Kamishiro as the strongest student in his class and the first-year student closest to Rank B, and why he hadn’t thought of him as the strongest first-year student. This is because there are students who have already reached rank B

 Class A and B have one rank C student each, so at this point Class A is considered to be at least as strong as Class C. In addition, Class C has one rank C student in the competition

 Besides, considering the fact that there are people in Class C who have abilities that are not useful for competition (Chihiro, for example), there is a good possibility that Class B might have overtaken them in overall strength

 ”But, I don’t know much about that person, even though he’s a rank B student”

 It’s hard to get information about other classes, but even so, a first-year student in Rank B is bound to have a rumor or two

 At Chihiro’s words, Maisaka nodded

 ”That’s true, but well, it can’t be helped. After all, this person hasn’t used his/her ability even once since entering the school”

 ”Oh, I see”

 Aika rolls her eyes, holding a cute lunch box in her hands

 ”That’s right. In other words, this person has no achievement after entering the school. It’s not surprising since it was a B when he entered, but it means that this person been the strongest freshman without ever using his/her ability”

 The strongest without doing anything

 Even Kamishiro has been training every day and is still a C rank

 … it’s not fair

 Maria looks up after finishing her sandwich. She looks back at Maisaka for the first time and asks quietly

 ”What are his/her abilities?”

 ”I wonder”

 ”Hmm, no idea, huh…”

 ”I don’t know. It’s been kept private at the request of the student. Of course it must have been used during assessment, but a teacher wouldn’t go to the trouble of revealing it. Though, there’s no way to know if the other students have never seen it”

 ”But”, Maisaka continued

 ”I’m sure this person will use it at the sports festival. After all, it’s a great opportunity to show off your abilities”

 The training that the students usually do is just that, training

 But when it’s a school event, it’s a different story. If they perform well in public, in front of a large crowd, it will remain as a great “achievement”
