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

Much as it goes against my instincts to see more Utena, I'll say cafeteria too. It's a new scene choice, and the thought of Chigusa with that uncharacteristic look of disappointment is too tempting.

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

I'd rather stick it to Chigusa than hang out with Utena. No offense to Utena. Although what I really want to see is that journalism club! For now, the cafeteria, maybe Kozue and her orange-haired friend will be there again.

But can she do the slippery mambo? cool

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

I know that stock footage/background characters aren't exactly the most uniquely drawn, but did anyone else notice the Shinji (from Evangelion) sitting right behind Crazy McCreeperson, er, Chigusa?  That bland "oh, are people actually talking to me?" look on his face aws enough to almost make me facepalm.  Just thought I'd share.

This was just the amount of terrifyingly creepy that I was hoping for lol  Excellent stuff emot-smile

To the heart of the matter, I vote for lunch in the Cafeteria, where hopefully Juri or Miki will show up for some (naked?) fun time!

Apricot Rose: That's perfect. I couldn't imagine the slippery mambo any other way.

Winston TA: It looks sort of Shinji-ish. He looks a little less baby faced and not quite depressed enough though. However I like the idea he ran to the Utenaverse to escape Gendo's super dickery

What's that say about Shinji Ikari and his life that he'd rather be stuck in Ohtori than Tokyo-3?  But that brings up an interesting idea, of Gendo and Akio facing off in some sort of "who's more of a dick to family members" contest.  Oh the fanfic...

At least Gendo doesn't sleep with them... parental relationship with Rei notwithstanding.


Now, to the cafeteria, for independent culinary adventure!

D-ko:
Alright, I'll try eating at the cafeteria.
Yesterday, they had a (leftovers menu), didn't they?

I'm really hoping she doesn't mean that you can order other people's leftovers. Then again, maybe that's all that scholarship students like D-ko can afford.

D-ko:
Man, there sure are a lot of people over there.
What's going on...?
...oh, Chigusa-san?
Wow, you're so popular, Chigusa-san...
I guess it makes sense, though.
She's so cool, and good in school, too.
I guess if it hadn't been for all that stuff before, I'd also be...

I'd like to eat with someone, if I can, but...

D-ko:
Alright! Looks like I have a lot of competition,
but I'm going to try to eat with Chigusa.
There are things I want to ask her, too...

Chigusa-san! Do you want to eat together?

Chigusa:
Eh?

D-ko:
You don't have to look so surprised...

Chigusa:

I'm sorry, everyone.
Today, I'm going to be eating with this girl.

(Later, after sitting down)

D-ko:
Um... you're really popular, aren't you?

Chigusa:
Well... I've lived for three years longer than everyone else,
(and can do a lot more things), so I guess it's only natural.

D-ko:
Even in another three years, I still don't think I'd measure up to you.
And you do fencing too, right?
I mean, I saw you at the Fencing Hall yesterday...

Chigusa:
You were saying that this morning, too.
But like I said then, I think you have the wrong person.

D-ko:
B, but, you knew my name without my telling you, and...

Chigusa:
It was written on your notebook.

D-ko:
Huh? I... oh, of course.
That's right... I had my notebook out at the time.

Chigusa:
Anyway, about you... what kind of club activities do you do?
Do you fence?

D-ko:
No, not at all. Though apparently my parents used to...

Chigusa:
Hmm... your parents, huh?

D-ko:
Yeah. When I came here, my father even lent me his saber,
and told me to try it out.

Chigusa:
I see... your father's saber. Is that so...?

http://img695.imageshack.us/img695/897/00000505.png

Chigusa is a little bit too interested in our father's sword. Then again, so is Chu-Chu. I don't really want to think about it.

Then, for this question... Sanjouin.

Chigusa:
Yes. It's "a+3".

Teacher:
Correct!

Classmates:
[murmuring]

Teacher:
(So for this problem, you expand it like this...)
Kageno, if you add this part and this part, what's the sum?

D-ko:
Um, yes!
What should I do...
I think it's "a+18," but I'm not sure...
Ahh, everybody is staring!
If I mess up here, they're all going to laugh...
they'll see what a huge gap there is between Chigusa and me...
What should I do, what should I do...!?


(Music: Temptation, D3T14)

Chigusa:
[quietly] 38.

D-ko:
That voice just now... was that Chigusa?
Did she just tell me the answer?


CHOICE:
Answer "38" (CHIGUSA +1)
Answer "a+18"

I mean, I'd guess a+18 anyway, because the answer to the last question had a variable in it too, and you usually get the same kinds of answers on these sample problems... but whatever. I am now obligated to ask if you guys want to deliberately take the wrong choice. Let the controversy begin.

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

Oh! Oh! We're totally supposed to lend Utena our father's sword for her duel against Chigusa!

Man, that was way better than getting sick from Anthy's cooking.

It's tempting to pick 38 since we haven't see that outcome, but with Chigusa about to work her hax-magic we'd better not.

Answer "a+18"

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

Maybe I missed this the first time through, but in previous run-ins with Chigusa, I don't recall seeing the random dilating and contracting of her pupils.  Even her eyes can't be normal-like.  I think that adds 10 points to her creepy meter.  And speaking of math, at the risk of seeing the contracting pupils of death, I vote for picking a + 18 as our math answer.

The answer, like our grade, is A. ...plus 18.

(Music: After School Girls, D2T11)

D-ko:
It's a + 18.

Teacher:
Correct. Everyone, looks like our new student is quite the ace!

(Music: Morning Lyrical, D3T3)

D-ko:
Ah, it's finally over...
Looks like the classes at Ohtori Academy are pretty high-level, too.
Now, I should go make the rounds and check out the clubs right away.
Which club should I visit first...?


CHOICE:
Fencing Club (possible JURI +1 or +2, or MIKI +1)
Kendo Club (possible SAIONJI +3 and CHIGUSA +1)
Newspaper Club (none)
(Literature Club) (CHIGUSA -1)

This juncture is really, really weird. Here's how it seems to work.

We start with the three options: Fencing Club, Kendo Club, and Newspaper Club. But if we go to the Newspaper Club, we get to pick again and Literature Club becomes available as a choice. And if we then head to Literature Club, we still get to pick between the Fencing Club or Kendo Club afterwords. In short, the web of choices doesn't end until we get near people wielding swords.

The obvious thing to do would be:
Newspaper Club
Literature Club
???

And doing the obvious thing is what we do best. So:

Actual Choice wrote:

Fencing Club
Kendo Club

And, of course, let me know if the aforementioned Newspaper-Literature-Sports plan displeases you somehow.
