Re: Let's Play! Utena, Round 2: Don't Get in Cars With Strangers

Get his attention some other way Might as well get as many points as we can. school-sherlock

Thanks for the info, Ozma. poptart You totally rock.

To Ragnarok: I doubt it. The Chigusa bar should indicate how many points she starts taking away, but it hasn't changed yet. Acting dependent is just a side effect of chasing Touga. emot-rolleyes

Re: Let's Play! Utena, Round 2: Don't Get in Cars With Strangers

Yep, Nights1stStar is right. Unlike Anthy's, Chigusa's points aren't secret, so if we gain or lose any it should show up on the rose meter. And acting dependent or girlishly fawning over people doesn't make us more susceptible to Chigusa... unless the person we're being dependent on or fawning over is Chigusa specifically. Choices in which we favor Chigusa, or make her happy for some other reason (like the weird mother/father naming choice) are the ones to watch out for.

Distract Saionji-kempai. Because there are better ways of confrontation. Like say, with a sword. Or a banana

Distract Saionji.  It's an even bet that no girl's ever gotten up the courage to show him 'er tits, so who knows what might happen.

Re: Let's Play! Utena, Round 2: Don't Get in Cars With Strangers

We will distract Saionji. How we distract him is, unfortunately, left to D-ko's discretion.

D-ko:
Just facing him directly and saying "stop it!" would be a little scary...
So this time... I've got it! I'll just stick my mask on, and... okay!

Saionji-sempai!

http://ohtori.nu/gallery/var/resizes/Game/Screenshots/Game_Cap_030.jpg?m=1380882736

Saionji:
Hmm? What is it?

D-ko:
I think Himemiya-san was calling for you over there.

Saionji:
Anthy? Ohhhhhh...!

D-ko:
W... what's with this guy?
He's shaking with emotion.


Saionji:
Of course... even while she's at Tenjou Utena's side,
she was looking forward to our brief rendevous tonight...
Yes! I'm coming, Anthy!
Let us share a passionate dance together!

D-ko:
Ahh... he dashed away.
Man, that guy's really into Anthy, isn't he?
(This morning, he was also saying that he was still set on her...)
It doesn't seem like he's just a total jerk.
I mean, that's not to say that he isn't a pain in the ass, but...

SAIONJI +1
40% -> 50% (+10%)

Saionji is totally obsessed with Anthy, and that improves our relationship somehow!

(Music: Eros of the Dance, D1T11)

D-ko:
I'm in trouble...
I thought those two would totally stand out,
but I don't see them anywhere!
Ah, there's Anthy!
...but where's she going?
Anyway, now that I've found her, I should chase after her!


Guy:
Hey, you. Wanna chat a bit over there?

D-ko:
Huh? Who are these guys?

Other Guy:
The wind feels really nice up on the balcony.
What happened to your mask? Did you lose it?

D-ko:
What's this... is he trying to pick me up?
I thought balls like this were for gentlemen and ladies.
...darn, I lost track of Anthy!

Excuse me, please let me through.

Guy:
Aww, don't say that!
C'mon, let's go!

D-ko:
Man, he's obstinate!

Juri:
Move it!

No purple-haired schoolgirls will fall victim to unwelcome heterosexual attention while Juri's on the job!

(Music: The One Who Shoots at the Sun, D1T17)

D-ko:
Look at those long curls!
But it totally suits her.
She has a good figure,
but she's also handsome.
(It's like straight out of the ancient nobility!)
She has kind of a severe feeling about her,
but I guess she's also a member of the Student Council?


Guy:
[quietly, to others] Hey, this is bad. It's Arisugawa Juri...

Other Guy:
Let's get out of here.

D-ko:
Ah, free at last!
...but I still lost sight of Anthy.

Ah, thank you very much!
My name is Kageno D-ko.

Juri:
Kageno?
Then you're the new resident of the East Dorm.

D-ko:
That's right!
But how did you...

Juri:
You're quite famous among the members of the Student Council.

D-ko:
...famous? What do you mean?

Juri:
You'll understand sooner or later.

D-ko:
What should I do, I've got to talk about something!
A topic... a topic...


D-ko:
Umm, Arisugawa-sempai,
you're really strong and cool, aren't you?
I want to become just like you!

Juri:
I'm... not that strong.

D-ko:
Huh? But...

Juri:
I'm always thinking that I want to become strong, but...

D-ko:
Sempai, why do you look sad?
She's clasping something by her chest.
A pendant? No, a locket...


Juri:
If you'd like, please come visit the Fencing Hall.
Becoming physically strong helps one gain confidence.

D-ko:
Uh, sure! Thank you very much.

(she leaves)

D-ko:
Arisugawa Juri-san, huh?
As a fellow woman, I really adore her!
She's strong, beautiful, cool...
But, I'm a little bit concerned about that locket by her chest.
It's the kind that has a lover's picture in it, right?

D-ko:

I don't know, D-ko, it could be Miki. emot-rolleyes

Chigusa:
Come.

(Music: Dance of Death, D1T24)

Chigusa:
Hey, you.
Do you know about the Rose Bride?

D-ko:
Huh?

Chigusa:
To obtain her is to obtain the Power to Revolutionize the World.

D-ko:
...and what does that mean?

http://img119.imageshack.us/img119/7947/00000075.png

D-ko:
...that ring!
Are you... a member of the Student Council?

Chigusa:
Duelists aren't limited to members of the Student Council.
The current victor, Tenjou Utena, isn't one either.

D-ko:
Ah...

Chigusa:
But... she'll only be engaged to the Rose Bride for a little longer.

D-ko:
What do you mean? Surely you're not...

Chigusa:
Soon, Tenjou Utena will duel. And she'll lose.
And then...

D-ko:
This person's eyes... they're somehow really scary!
...why...?


Chigusa:
...you will dissapear.

D-ko:
What?

http://img119.imageshack.us/img119/6109/00000076.png
(The lights go out. Cue girlish screams, panic, a little crashing.)

Utena:
Are you okay?

D-ko:
...yes. Thank you.

Juri:
...even so, obstructing one of the Student Council's dances is certainly a gutsy move, don't you think?

"I mean, we could have anyone in this room killed. It's in the school bylaws."

Miki:
This is no time for admiration, Juri-san!
This was a clear act of opposition to the Student Council.

Touga:
Not so fast, Miki. We haven't determined that yet.

Saionji:
Hey, transfer student. What's that stuck to your back?

D-ko:
Huh?

(Music: Nova, D3T6)

Miki:
The sound of glass breaking that we heard back then was just confused students accidentally knocking glasses off of the tables.
I investigated in that direction, but nothing was wrong in particular. It seems it was just a simple accident.
(Then, in the direction of the switchboard, this circuit breaker was dropped.)

Juri:
But the circuit room should have been locked.

Miki:
It didn't look like the lock was broken or altered.
They probably used a spare key...

Saionji:
Never mind that. The problem is the message that was on this girl's back.
Hey, exchange student. Did you notice someone sticking the card on you?

D-ko:
I...
I wonder when the heck that happened?
If it was much before the lights went out, someone would have noticed...
So, I guess it was just before? Come to think of it, that person...

[flashback shot of D-ko and Chigusa dancing]

http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/2899/00000084.png

Utena:
Excuse me. This is all well and good, but why do we have to talk up on this freezing balcony?

Chu-Chu:
Chuu.

Saionji:
Don't put your hands on your hips and cop an attitude, girl!
And monkey, stop imitating her!

Utena:
Hey, it's a free country!

Chu-Chu:
Chuu!

Miki:
I'm sorry, Tenjou-sempai.
For the moment, since it's a Student Council meeting, we should really use the Student Council room....

Utena:
So it's some kind of school regulation?
I guess it can't be helped, then.

Touga:
No, we just like the atmosphere.

Utena:
What?

Touga:
In any case, it's clear that a strange new participant has entered the dueling game.
Moreover, they've decided to do us the courtesy of announcing their presence.
We should each be duly careful.
Tenjou Utena-kun, you too.

Utena:
Huh? Me too?

Touga:
As the one engaged to the Rose Bride, there's a good possibility that you might be targeted.

Utena:
Man, what a bother.
And why the 25th?
Can't they just duel me immediately, like usual?

Miki:
That's certainly mysterious.
Why did they designate the 25th, three days in advance?

Juri:
Presumably because they think that in three days,
they'll be able to beat Tenjou Utena.

Saionji:
Hey. What do you have to say, transfer student?

D-ko:
I... didn't say...

Utena:
Leave her alone, Saionji.
She has nothing to do with this.

Saionji:
This began the same day she transferred here.
It's too much to be a coincidence.
She could have stuck the card on her back herself and lied about it.
And she might have thought that setting the duel three days ahead would give her time to find your weak point.

D-ko:
That's...!
Suspicion... he's suspicious of me?
I'm just a victim here!
Stop looking at me with those cold eyes!


CHOICE:
I'll catch the real culprit! (+1 UTENA, TOUGA, JURI, MIKI)
Make a joke (+1 GAG POINT)

Remember, gag choices only contribute towards the Anthy ending, and the slow erosion of my sanity.

Catch the culprit Much as I love Anthy, I highly doubt the Anthy ending would teach us anything plotwise. There's also the fact that the only person Anthy is capable of liking in the series is Utena...

I have decided I will show my appreciation for this thread, which brings so much amusement to my days, by chronicling D-ko's adventures in fanart.  At least, unless I get artblock or get distracted or feel like drawing something else!
