Hey, what are you gonna do if someone hears you? They're gonna think some weird things.
My apologies... There was no one around, so it slipped. But please don't worry, I was only out shopping. I will excuse myself before anyone arrives.
Wait, are you going somewhere this late? I know we're inside the campus, but...
You do not need to worry, I was only invited to Chiaki's room.
Well...she invited me, because they did not have enough people to play a four-person game.
Oh, so that's why you got snacks. Heh...look at you. Just like a normal high schooler.
And you, young master? Where are you going?
I couldn't sleep, so I'm just going for a walk.
Then, I will join you...
Nah. Chiaki and them are waiting for you, right? You're not my hitman anymore... Go and have fun with your friends. And...let me know if you're able to beat Chiaki at least once.
...Understood. Please be careful.
Today is the summer sports festival. Your events are over and you finally get a break... The soccer game is still going on, so you came to cheer. Where will you watch from?
I'll watch from far away
Peko? Are you here to support them? Then, would you like to sit closer?
No... Raising my voice and making a scene... That kind of cheering isn't really my style. Looking on from afar is perfect. You're also cheering from here, aren't you Kyoko?
I'm more just watching. I'll have plenty of time to cheer for them at the ceremony.
The next match is starting. It looks like your class is participating.
Yes... Your classmates are participating as well.
You're awfully calm. Isn't your class in a pinch right now?
I could say the same to you... Your class just lost control of the ball.
...The two of you quietly watched over the game until it ended.
Perhaps I'll watch from as close as possible
Oh, hey. You here to cheer for the team? Right on! They've almost won anyway, so let's shout real loud to cheer 'em on!
What, are you embarrassed? Everyone's shouting, so no one's gonna hear you. Well...I'm no slouch when it comes to cheering! I'm gonna shout from the bottom of my gut!
It's not that I'm embarrassed. I simply...don't have much experience with that kind of thing.
It's not hard or anything. You just gotta shout their names as hard as you can...
Shout whatever you think will help. That'll become their strength out there!
I see...you're right. I will do what I can.
Yeah, that's the spirit!
...You copied Kaito and raised your voice just a little to cheer.
Usami...may I sit next to you?
Why, you're more than welcome to sit next to me! This spot has a great view!
Thank you. Have you been cheering the whole time, Usami?
Uh-huh! I've been cheering like crazy cuz I'm everyone's teacher! I didn't get to see all the events, but I saw yours and cheered for you, Peko!
Your moves were amazing. It's no wonder you're the Ultimate Swordswoman... Even so, you always keep your cool and assist your teammates... I was so impressed!
I see...so you were watching me very closely.
Hehehe... Doesn't it make you happy to know someone was cheering for you? I bet everyone you cheer for will feel just as happy, too.
You and Usami watched over the game until it was over.
Today is the fall school festival! A pop star, a fashionista, a swordmaster, martial artists... Girls with entertainment and sports talents came together to do a fashion show! But you didn't really want to participate in the first place. What do you do?
Distract myself by calming someone down
Ugh, I can't stay still... A show featuring all the girls is just too wonderful... But I'm not worthy enough to stand on stage with everyone else with a body like this! I wonder if Himiko feels the same way before a show... At a time like this, my Neo-Aikido...
Tenko...are you alright? You've been talking to yourself for some time...
I am absolutely not alright! But thank you for worrying about me!
...That's what I thought.
Arghhh, how could I be calm!? I'm walking on stage after Sayaka, you know!? Wait... Doesn't that basically make me a performer like her!?
I-Is that so? To be honest, I don't really follow that logic...
Yes! And you're a performer, too, of course!
Wha—!? That...isn't possible! You need to calm down already, Tenko!
You were confused by Tenko's forceful rambling, but at least it distracted you.
Watch the others closely
Just like I thought, Junko is so confident out there...
...Hm? No...it must be my mistake...
Oh, hello there Peko. Is it your turn next? Break a leg out there.
O-Oh... Thank you.
Was that...Junko? No, even if she had stage makeup on, her face was quite different...
Peko, is something the matter? You seem upset.
Sakura...did you see Junko's face as she went by just now?
No, I did not. I merely saw a shadow that looked like Junko go backstage.
I see. Never mind, then...
The next time you saw Junko, her face was the same as normal... Were you just mistaken?
I will go through with it, however...
I should've expected the press would be here since Sayaka and Junko are performing.
It's a relief that filming is prohibited...but the press still have cameras. I would like to avoid my face becoming known... Eventually, I must become the young master's...
Peko, you're up next.
O-Oh...sorry. I shall go prepare.
Oh, are you a little camera shy? You aren't used to this kinda thing, huh?
To be honest, I find it troubling, but trying to push through them would attract more attention.
Yeah, I don't like that kinda thing either.
...You feel that way too, Junko?
I'm okay with modeling for magazines, but I don't like being photographed all the time.
And when this ends... I'm considering sneaking out the back! Sayaka said she'd cover for us. Wanna go with me?
R-Really!? That would be quite a relief, thank you!
It's no problem! Sayaka and I invited you in the first place!
You were able to avoid the cameras, thanks to Junko...
Your last winter at the academy... Christmas has passed and graduation is coming up. The closing ceremony ended and you have no plans for today... What will you do?
Perhaps I'll leave school right away...
Peko, let's walk home together! Even though the dorms are right there!
Sure...I do not mind.
*sigh*... Today's the last day of school. It's pretty much just like the end of the year.
So I'm already in a New Year's mood! No, I'm already excited for next year's Christmas! Christmas was just yesterday, but I've already got my hands full with the next one!
The party last night was very fun...but don't you think you're getting ahead of yourself?
You can't help being excited about stuff. That was the most music I've played on Christmas!
You're right...it was fun.
Oh, you agree with Ibuki!? That makes me oh so happy!
Yeah. I'm not thinking about next year just yet, but... I'm looking forward to the next time we can all get together like last night.
We all get along so well, I'm sure there'll be another chance before too long. It's different from hanging out with my music friends, but this is way fun, too!
You'll come to next year's party, right?
Yes. No matter what I'm doing this time next year...I'll definitely come to our gathering.
...You made a promise for the future with Ibuki.
Perhaps I'll stop by the dining hall...
Oh, Peko! It's been a while, huh?
Rantaro...did you go overseas again?
I just got back. I have souvenirs for everyone, I'll give you yours later.
Oh, I took lots of pictures on my trip! I saw lots of animals this time.
I see, please show me. I regret that I won't be able to see your pictures after I graduate.
Nah, you don't have to worry about that. I'm gonna start posting my pictures on the web.
Wh...What!? Even the animal pictures!?
Well, of course. I'll upload them as soon as I take them. So you'll be able to see even more than you do now. You should check it out!
Yes. I will look forward to that.
But, hmm...perhaps you should start your own website, like Gundham?
I only update things when I feel like it, so it wouldn't be good for a proper website.
You can really feel his love for animals on Gundham's website. How much he cares... I want to do it a little more laid back, y'know?
You're right... His Exciting Breeding Journal is a very elaborate site, indeed.
Well, I will be looking forward to your pictures, no matter the form they take. And as long as you continue to post more, I'll know you remain safe in your travels.
Haha, yeah, that's true. Please, check it often, make sure I'm still alive and all that.
...Rantaro gave you the link to his social network page!
I will thoroughly enjoy fluffy animals
Gundham's got cutest animal friends!
Agreed. Though animals used to run away from me, I am able to pet them now. All thanks to the two of you. I appreciate your instruction on the hearts of animals.
Kehehe... Peko, I bestow upon you the title, "Swordsmaster of Asura's Spirit"...
N-No... That won't be necessary...
Before coming here, Gonta never think he get to pet animals with human friends. Gonta will feel even happier if you play with his bug friends.
Souls with the same fate are destined to gather before demon beasts, but can you rival my aura?
...I still have trouble understanding your words, Gundham.
Umm... We all love animals, but not many humans understand animals like Gundham.
Hamster translate for Gonta, so Gonta think he understand what Gundham mean.
I see. I feel that I will be able to deal with Gundham as long as you're around, Gonta.
You spent a peaceful time with the other students who love animals...
Appearances in Seasonal Events for Other Characters
Today is the school festival...and your exhibit is a gambling hall for beginners! However, many seem too scared of losing to attend... Why not ask students as they walk by?
I feel I would have a worthy battle with you
...A battle against me?
Yes. You have experience with gambling, do you not? It will be fun.
I know someone who might excel at that... But as for me, I'm not interested.
And why not? There is a first time for everything, and I think you would be quite good. A sharp and calm demeanor. You have the courage to be a formidable contestant.
Even then, don't you need luck to succeed at gambling?
And why not test your luck?
...Very well. It should be fine, even if I lose. I will accept your challenge.
I was waiting for those words...
You enjoyed playing blackjack with Peko... It was time well spent!
Your last winter at the academy... Graduation will be here before you know it. That being said, you don't really feel anything. Let's spend our time drinking tea as always! Almost all of the seats in the dining hall are taken... Who will you ask to sit with?
Peko, would you like to play a round with me?
Of course, it is not a serious contest. Just a little...fun gambling.
Very well. A tense game with you will be good stimulation for me as well.
Ah...this seems intriguing. May I watch from the sidelines?
That is fine. I do not mind if you join in.
No, I will focus on observing your game for the time being. What sort of battle will ensue...? I would like to carefully observe it.
I would not mind that either. It is not a bad thing to have an audience. Are you alright with this as well, Peko?
I don't mind. It will be good training for keeping my composure in any situation.
Such a serious woman... You will do anything for a match. You are a worthy opponent.
This will be an intriguing match, indeed... Kehehe...I eagerly wait.
You had an intense battle at the corner of the dining hall...
Today is the sports festival... You were in the relay race, until Monokuma barged in! You were able to stop him and let the runners continue their race, but... Monokuma ran away! Monokuma might disrupt the other events as well... What should you do to catch him?
I should find an ally who shares my goal
Peko, do you intend to look for Monokuma also?
Ah... Academy security is already after him, but since it's Monokuma, the more the better.
The sports festival is important...so I'd like everyone to enjoy themselves today.
Then let's not ask any more people.
Peko, it seems our goals align. Let's join forces and split up to search for Monokuma.
I was going to ask you the same thing. I'm glad to have your assistance.
You found a powerful ally to help you look for Monokuma!
Today is the fall school festival... You decided to exhibit all the cosplay you've made so far! Let's greet the people who have stopped by!
I didn't expect to see you here
...So, these outfits are what they call "cosplay."
Yeah, these are all the outfits I've made. Are you interested in cosplay, Peko?
Well, I'm certainly intrigued...or rather, I want to understand what it is. People have mistaken the way I dressed as cosplay a few times before.
Ahh... I can see why people would make that mistake. You're beautiful, Peko...a school girl outfit, bamboo sword, glasses, pigtails. You're perfect. But I don't want to trouble a normal person... For some reason, I feel like I'm bothering you.
If I am dressed in a way that makes me more noticeable, should I change to stand out less?
Oh, Peko. You're perfect just the way you are. So much so, I want to beg you not to change!
You explained to a confused Peko that there's no need for her to change...
