    Your name is Hikigaya Hachiman, 16 years old. Fairly athletic, reasonably handsome, if a bit ragged from bad lifestyle. Your family was neither rich or poor, more like upper middle class.

    [​IMG]

    And you went to Japan's #1 Elite Shuchiin Academy High School through pure scholarship. It was a hard work, many blood and sweats were shed, nevertheless, here you are half a year later and this is the second semester of your unusually boring high school life.

    [​IMG]

    You have decided that the idyllic boring life need to stop. Your best friend Shirogane Miyuki have decided to go for Student Council Presidential Election, and ask if you want to join him in the council.

    You declined.

    Part of you wondered, if accepting the invitation was the right thing. Nevertheless, he respected your decision, and this path separation didn't make you any less friendly with each other. The path of near-brotherhood more or less tempered over the course of summer vacation, you're not too worried.

    Nevertheless, it was a road not taken, no use crying over spilled milk.

    With a bit of rebellious streak, superfluous fund you don't know what to do, you picked a drowned motorcycle from a semi-famous dealer in Tokyo. To be honest, it wasn't really worthy of bragging, it was purely lifestyle choice. Nevertheless, it might just affect how people view you if they saw you in it.

    [ ] Police Bike: Touring type for long distance ride, why is this being sold? (++Charisma, -Manliness, appeal to order)
    [ ] Sports Bike: Sleek and elegant, not as comfortable but it's certainly look cool and fast. (+Charisma)
    [ ] Standard Bike: It's average in all aspect but still imposing and tough, getting the job done. (+Manliness)

    [X] Cruiser Bike: Low ride, low growl, comfortable to ride, looks like gangster bike. (++Manliness, -Charisma, appeal to chaos)

    It was the first day of the semester and you ended up, somehow, tangled up with Yakuza group and it's Princess. Narrowly escaped with your life and dignity intact, you ended up knowing her more than before, originally as stranger even though the two of you were in the same class.

    You gave her a ride to school when traffic jam blocked her family car, so she managed to avoid tardiness on the first day in the semester. She owe you at least that much in the end.

    [​IMG]

    Her name was Ryuju Momo, the primary heir to Ryuju group, the biggest Yakuza group in Tokyo Metropolitan area. It could be said that they conquered half of Japanese's underworld, though most of their business appear legit.

    Eh.

    [ ] Draw a line (Hard mode, no VIP protection)
    You're still classmates but that's it, nothing more nothing less.
    [ ] Keep it safe (+ Manliness)
    Remains in contact, hang out from time to time as friend.

    [X] Fairly chummy (++ Manliness, appeal to chaos)
    Not quite best friend, nevertheless you're comfortable with each other and she taught you a trick or two.
    [ ] Absolutely no fucks given (+++ Manliness, appeal to chaos, negative modifier with other girls)
    More or less glued by the hip, rarely seen without each other. People mistook you for dating from time to time.

    Thinking that your chaotic school life more or less stabilized, managed to keep your grade high for one semester, and all that important things, you wonder if you should begin searching potential girlfriend?

    Heh.

    [​IMG]
    Asking to get heartbroken again perhaps?

    Who knows.

    Time to let it rip.

    But first's let's pick your choice of electives this semester. This will decide what elective class you attend outside the primary subjects.

    [X] Journalism
    [ ] Art (You picked this before)
    [ ] Music (Miyuki is here)
    [ ] Calligraphy (Momo is here)

    This is where it's at. We get bonuses to Charisma, to Manliness, and appeal to both Order and Chaos. That fits Hachiman very well.

    Plus, Japanese police bikes are fairly slick and fast, and we can probably give it a paint-job to fit our style rather than just going for the plain-white the police use, making it look cooler.

    Going to assume it influences our affinity with school factions and characters.

    Momo is full chaos allignment.
    Fujiwara chika to a lesser degree.

    Thats how the fanfic version have them as main heroines.

    It affect mostly faction relationship and character's first impression on you.

    Yes, and his work will be determined by your reputation and connections at school.

    I believe that's Fujiwara's club, so... yeah, they're all hilarious lunatics. Though, all of them are girls, and their daily antics would probably shave years off of 8man's loner-soul lifespan through the insanity. So, for our mental health, probably best to avoid them for a while and pick a club that's got sane people in it...

    Though, now that I think about it, the Mass Media Club is also kinda split between sane and insane - Erika and Karen are sort of outliers in their club, but they're also both totally mental. Karen's obsessed with writing fics to ship Kaguya and Miyuki, and Erika is simply idolizes Kaguya to an obsessive level... The rest of the club seems to be fairly normal though, and the club's president is actually a rational person.

    However, just because one takes Journalism as a class doesn't mean we're going to be a part of the Mass Media Club, right?

    Before you know it, the hectic September had passed and the new Student Council began their work. Shirogane Miyuki was known as the first outsider student to be elected President for a while. The importance of social caste in Shuchiin Academy cannot be overstated, and Miyuki's background as a poor, destitute outsider student reliant on Scholarship was quite a hot topic to argue about. Nevertheless, he gathered enough votes to get elected, thanks to his peerless effort.

    Sometimes you wondered, is there such a thing as a genius at hard work? Because cynically speaking, Shirogane Miyuki was a talentless hack forcing himself into this cruel and unjust academy. Nevertheless, the strength of his determination was what allowed the two of you to be friends like this.

    Standing beside him was a deathly cold Goddess of death, or so you like to call her, the Goddess of lonerdom. The so-called perfect girl incarnate, blessed by numerous talents and achievement, born into one of the most elite families in Japan, the Shinomiya. That is, Shinomiya Kaguya.

    All this time, more than half a year, Shirogane Miyuki put so much effort into chasing her shadow. Of course, you also contributed and helped Miyuki passed multiple trials and tribulations that allow him to be a perfect man worthy of her attention as rival and equal.

    You have an inkling that there's something beyond simple rivalry into their relationship, nevertheless, you decided not to meddle unless asked.

    OCTOBER 2020

    It's time for you to begin your second elective class. The previous class last semester was uneventful, though Miyuki was there so you never get bored. Nevertheless, you decided to pick a different subject than him this semester.

    You decided to pick Journalism.

    From a practical standpoint, this is basically the densest and productive elective class. You're taught foreign policy, language, general research and publishing, and 100% of the activities were done using computers. In other words, almost everything relevant to the modern job market.

    You wonder what kind of people you'll meet here?

    From what you hear, most of the big names went for Calligraphy again this semester, so you're unlikely to meet a bunch of bigshots. Nevertheless, that's not really a problem for you, as someone who has very few friends in the first place.

    Wrong.

    It seems that two anomalies had slipped under the radar.

    Kashiwagi Nagisa was the Daughter of the President of a major shipbuilding company in Japan, looking at that fact, it sounds like someone you shouldn't really deal with casually. Though admittedly, it's not as if you're not chummy enough with Ryuju of all people.

    But the second one is even more terrifying.

    Shijo Maki was the Daughter of Shijo Group, an offshoot family branch of the Shinomiya who decided to expand outside as the Shinomiya dominate the Japanese economy. Shijo group was a massive multinational conglomerate, and it's total wealth and influence was not less than Shinomiya's own, combined.

    Along with them, the more noticeable sort of students there was Kino Karen and Erika Kose. Kino Karen was the daughter of Bodansha's CEO, a major publishing company in Japan. Erika Kose, if you remember, her family owned a Miso Company. Of all these four girls, Kose was the closest to you in social strata, as your father is a famous producer of a massive Idol production company, and your mother being the General Manager of a powerful Cellphone and Banking company in Tokyo.

    Unfortunately, aside from that, your information on them was fairly limited. Nevertheless, you had to work with what info you have



    [​IMG]
    And so began the introduction to Journalism class. To be honest, you studied this ahead of time so it should be easy to relearn everything with a preexisting foundation of knowledge. Nevertheless, you should work according to your own desired pace, though the way you present yourself will influence how people look at you.

    But hey, since when you care about reputation?

    I wish I found out about this a bit sooner.

    The voting time is just way too short!

    That Police Bike option was just one vote away into a tie!

    I really want it to be a bit different from the origin fanfic that this one was based on....
