the after-school duel part 1T/N:
Noticed nobody's translated this, so I decided to give it a go. It's very sweet seeing Tsukasa finally get along with a couple more people his age. Like Natsume, he always acts like he's older than he actually is. Once again, tell me if you spot any mistakes. This time, I've adjusted my translating style to be a bit more liberal so it sounds and fits better in English, even if the phrasing is a bit different in Japanese. I'll also take a bit longer on this due to IRL issues.
Tetora: Funfufu~n ♪ It's finally lunch time!
Tetora: What should I eat today~, I guess a man should eat meat and become stronger?
Tetora: Huh? Barbecued kalbi* set, was that a limited menu item?
*T/N: "Kalbi" is Korean-style barbecued ribs. Never actually ate it myself, since I'm not a fan of barbecued stuff (fight me!), but I heard it tastes great.
Tetora: Or was it just unpopular, it's gone from the ticket machine!
Tetora: Ur~gh. Barbecued meat has a strong smell, so I guess a lot of people disliked it. Yumenosaki Academy is a school for idols and elites*, so it makes sense.
*T/N: He didn't actually say "elites", but I thought it would be better to add it in because that's what he means. They're all too snooty-nosed for common food, basically.
Tetora: But y'know. There's like, almost nothing other than fancy food here~, I want to eat more of stuff like beef bowls.
Tetora: Well, I guess that wouldn't match with the Garden Terrace's atmosphere though?
Tomoya: O~i, Tetora!
Tetora: Hm? Ohhh Tomoya-kun, you're eating at the cafeteria today? You usually eat bento* right?
*T/N: "Bento" is supposed to be a meal brought from home. Nowadays it's become more of a food style though. Google it. You can basically think of it as a lunch box.
Tomoya: Yup. Some stuff happened, though I some~times use the cafeteria anyway. Today I accidentally brought my younger sister's lunch box.
Tomoya: Right now she's on this crazy diet, so there's nothing but spinach in there.
Tetora: Wait, why spinach? Is your sister's ideal body Popeye*?
*T/N: "Popeye" is a cartoon where an old sailor gets super strong biceps just by eating a can of spinach. He uses his biceps of steel (or, er, spinach) to beat the crap out of all his enemies. Ah, the memories...
Tomoya: No idea........ She probably got the idea from some random TV show again, last time she kept insisting on eating lots of tofu.
Tomoya: Anyway, spinach alone won't keep my energy up....... I need to eat something with, you know, protein or carbohydrates.
Tomoya: Hajime did say, "Why don't you have some of my lunch?" but, well.
Tomoya: I think taking food from him might as well be one of the biggest crimes in this world.
Tomoya: That said, I rather like cafeteria food. The omelette rice set is my favorite~. Can I join you, Tetora?
Tetora: Sure. I'd appreciate it~. Everyone in my class brings their bentos, so I'm always eating alone, it's kind of lonely ♪
Tetora: My parents have work early, so they never make me lunch.
Tetora: When Boss* heard that, he said, "I'll make it for you, so do you want to eat together?" but.......
*T/N: I know Tetora calls him "taishou" (大将) and that a lot of people just stick to the Japanese, but I wanted to try putting it into English. They have a master-and-disciple relationship, but it doesn't translate into "master", so I had to pick the next best thing. Based on how Tetora speaks (polite yet crudely familiar), I felt this was a better choice than "admiral" or "general". Tell me if I should change it back to Japanese.
Tetora: I'd feel a bit bad for making him go through that trouble.
Tetora: Still, his cooking is seriously delicious, so I'd be ecstatic eating it.
Tomoya: The Karate Club sure is friendly with each other~.
Tomoya: If the Masked Pervert said "I made a lunch box for you ☆" then I'd first think it was a time bomb, or at best a mystery box.
Tetora: Ahaha. Looking from the outside, the Drama Club looks quite fun~ ♪
Tomoya: Not at all! It's like the suspense in the final episode of an overseas drama keeps going on and on, you know, it's seriously torture?!
Tomoya: Uwoah, sorry! Looks like I bumped your shoulder, are you hurt?
Tsukasa: Haa...... You two, causing a ruckus in a public space isn't mannerly.
Tsukasa: Well, I guess it's fine. You're still only first years, still children. Expecting courtesy out of you is like barking up the wrong tree.
Tetora: You know, you're also a first year.
Tetora: Aren't you Su, Su, Sudo~kun........ from Class B?
Tsukasa: Who exactly is that.
Tsukasa: I'm first year, Class B, Suou Tsukasa from the "Knights". From now on, do remember that.
Tetora: Woah, how polite........
Tetora: I'm Nagumo Tetora, he's Mashiro Tomoya-kun. Nice to meet you ♪
Tetora: Wait. Earlier you were complaining to us about etiquette and all, but aren't you playing with something on the cafeteria table?
Tetora: We're supposed to follow by example, you know?
Tsukasa: Hm? What you said is definitely true, you got one over me.
Tsukasa: However, don't you think playing a table game after a meal is actually quite elegant?
Tomoya: Um, your English pronunciation is so good, I didn't understand a word you said.......
Tomoya: More like, Suou, isn't this "Idobato"?
Tetora: What? Idobato....... what's wrong with "small talk"*, Tomoya-kun?
*T/N: "Idobato" can be short for "idobata kaigi" (井戸端会議), which means "small talk".
Tomoya: Ahh, no, it's the short name for the card game Suou's playing.
Tomoya: What was the official title........ I vaguely remember it, it was really popular when we were in elementary school.
Tsukasa: Hmm. Um, Mashiro-kun, was it, you're well-acquainted with this card game?
Tomoya: No, I wouldn't say that. I just played it because it was really popular~, I barely remember the rules now.
Tomoya: Let's see. You take some sort of magical power from "earth cards", then use that to summon monsters to fight with, I think.
Tomoya: Ahaha, looking at it makes me want to play it again.
Tsukasa: Then would you like to have a match with me? I've already prepared the cards.
Tsukasa: Onee-sa.......... ahem, ahem (clears throat), Anzu-san often played with me, but.......
Tsukasa: That person doesn't really seem to care for winning or losing. She loses on purpose and doesn't play seriously, so I never needed to retaliate seriously.
Tsukasa: However, for this sort of thing, if I don't play many "real" matches, then I won't be able to grow stronger.
Tomoya: Oh, then shall we?
Tomoya: But wait a bit. I'll go order some food first.
Tomoya: The morning classes sapped up a lot of energy, so I'm really hungry.
Tsukasa: Of course. It would be great if you wouldn't mind ordering me another cup of coffee while you're at it.
Tsukasa: Fufu, I feel bad for making a fellow classmate do that though.
Tetora: Ah! I'll order and bring the food for everyone.
Tetora: Also, can I also watch the match~, I like watching and participating in any sort of battle.
Tsukasa: Do as you like. If you wish, I can explain the rules to you........ Nagumo-kun. As fellow first years, we should build friendly ties with each other ♪
