  6. The rules are!?
  7.  
  8. The main character is this guy ^ !! In an Extra 34P Volume in JNEXT !
  9.  
  10. >Kumagawa
  11. “What I’ll hold now is a 7-on-7 team battle,”
  12.  
  13. “Bloody Seven” >Reads “Red Black Sevens”, just something to keep in mind
  14.  
  15. >Unzen
  16. Bloody Seven...?
  17. Don’t mess with me,
  18. Kumagawa--
  19.  
  20. There’s no way
  21. anyone would easily accept
  22.  
  23. a gamble proposed by a
  24. shady guy like you!
  25.  
  26. >Kumagawa
  27. “I knew you’d say that, Unzen-kun”
  28.  
  29. “But don’t worry,”
  30.  
  31. “because I just learned about the rules of this game as well.”
  32.  
  33.  
  34. “The inventor of those rules is
  35. Choujabaru-kun over there.”
  36. “Choujabaru Tokemichi-kun, who’s more impartial
  37. than anyone else.”
  38.  
  39. “If that’s the case, even as the Student Comittee Union,
  40. you guys have no problems with that right?”
  41.  
  42. Box 129 “Therefore this game without a doubt”
  43.  
  44. /02
  45. >Choujabaru
  46. Umm...yes,
  47. I was by Kumagawa-sama
  48. if there was a game
  49. where both parties could fight fairly,
  50.  
  51. so I humbly took it upon myself
  52. to propose one.
  53.  
  54. >Aoki
  55. How unnecessary...!
  56.  
  57. >Kumagawa
  58. “And so,
  59. at least listen to what I have to say,
  60. Unzen-kun.”
  61.  
  62. “Even as the Student Committee Union,
  63. in this particular conflict,”
  64. “you don’t have any intentions
  65. of just keeping quiet and idly watching right?”
  66.  
  67. >Unzen
  68. ….
  69. Fair enough.
  70.  
  71. I don’t know what kind of merits there are
  72. for us to accept the match,
  73.  
  74. but eh, I’ll at least listen to the rules--
  75. spit it out.
  76.  
  77. >Kumagawa
  78. “As expected of Medaka-chan’s greatest rival,
  79. none other than Unzen-kun.
  80. Thank you!”
  81.  
  82. “If you’re the one who says that, it’s enough for me!”
  83.  
  84. “Then without further interruption,
  85. let me explain the rules!”
  86.  
  87. /03
  88. >Kumagawa
  89. “Listen closely, ok?”
  90.  
  91. “It’s a bit complicated,”
  92.  
  93. “so I don’t think stupid people will get it!”
  94.  
  95.  
  96. >Eyemask, reads “I won’t work”
  97. If they won’t give in, rile them up~
  98.  
  99. You came prepared~
  100. Kumagawa-senpai.
  101.  
  102. /04
  103. “I think you understand from the name, but
  104. 1) Basically you line up 7’s,”
  105.  
  106. “line up the 4 7 cards on the table like this.”
  107.  
  108. “You place adjacently numbered cards on the left and right.”
  109.  
  110. “It’s probably the most popular game next to Old Maid you know.”
  111.  
  112.  
  113. “What’s different from the usual Sevens game is”
  114. “*2) If the numbers are adjacent, you can ignore the suit.*”
  115.  
  116. “In other words, for example,”
  117.  
  118. “you can place the 8S next to the 7H like this.”
  119.  
  120. “And
  121. *3) Defining H/D as ‘Red’,*”
  122. “*and S/C as ‘Black’,*”
  123.  
  124. “*when similarly colored cards are surrounded
  125. by cards of the opposing color,
  126. which can be placed horizontally, vertically, or diagonally*”  #think othello rules for legal moves, I unintentionally made it pretty long-winded
  127.  
  128. “*the surrounded card’s color changes.*”
  129.  
  130. “The big differences are
  131. these two points only.”
  132. “Got it, I hope?”
  133.  
  134. /05
  135. >Aka Aoki
  136. It’s basically Othello with Sevens as a base.
  137.  
  138. That’s why it’s called Bloody Seven...!
  139.  
  140. >Kumagawa
  141. “Exactly.”
  142. “*4) The teams will be divided into Red, who’ll use H/S,
  143. and Black who’ll use S/C.”
  144. “Laying down cards ---
  145. It’s a game where the side
  146. with more positions in the end
  147. will win.*”
  148.  
  149.  
  150. “Of course, there’s also differences from standard Othello.”
  151. “The base is most certainly Sevens,”
  152.  
  153. “so unlike Othello,
  154. *5) If the numbers are connected,
  155. you can place a card down without an
  156. opposite colored card between them.*”
  157.  
  158. “Or conversely,
  159. *6) If the numbers are /not/ connected,
  160. you can’t place a card in that position.*”
  161.  
  162. “By the way in this Bloody Seven,
  163. *7) Using up your cards is not the condition for winning.*”
  164.  
  165. “It’s not a personal battle, but a team one.”
  166.  
  167. “Oh, also
  168. *8) There are no Jokers.”
  169.  
  170. “It’s not a game that needs to be spoiled by using Jokers after all.”
  171.  
  172. “Given the time spent
  173. we’ve only gotten this far,”
  174.  
  175. “but to all of you Elites,
  176. how does it sound up to this point?”
  177.  
  178. /06
  179. >Unzen
  180. ...Well up to this point it’s fine,
  181. it seems interesting at least.
  182.  
  183. What’s with the 7-on-7 battle though?
  184.  
  185. With 1 deck, 52 cards is 48 after taking out the four 7’s,
  186.  
  187. evenly handing those out among 14 people is 3~4 cards a head right?
  188.  
  189. On top of that,
  190. if you only hand out red cards to the Red Team,
  191. and black cards to the Black Team,
  192.  
  193. based on the nature of Sevens,
  194. won’t this will end up turning into a series of passes?
  195.  
  196. >Kumagawa
  197. “That’s true.”
  198. “To begin with,
  199. this game was”
  200.  
  201. “perfect to play 3-on-3, it seems.”
  202.  
  203. “7-on-7 is twice the person limit.”
  204.  
  205.  
  206. “That’s why this time in particular, 9)
  207. *Not 1 but 2 decks will be used.*”
  208.  
  209. “*48x2 = 96 cards will be handed out.”
  210.  
  211. /07
  212. >That hair
  213. If that’s the case
  214. it’ll be 6~7 cards a head.
  215.  
  216. So that problem is solved,
  217. but now duplicate cards
  218. will occur.
  219.  
  220. It seems likely that you would
  221. have duplicates in your own hand...
  222.  
  223. >Kumagawa
  224. “That’s true, so
  225. *10) If all 4 cards of the same number are present in someone’s hand,*”
  226.  
  227. “*they’ll be thrown out from that person’s hand as dead cards.*”
  228. “That sort of rule was also appended.”
  229.  
  230. “In exchange,
  231. *11) No passing allowed!*”
  232.  
  233. “*12) When a player can’t play a card, they’re disqualified at that point.*”
  234.  
  235. “*13) The hands of those who are disqualified are of course discarded.*”
  236. “*14) In the event that all team members are disqualified,
  237. it will be the opposing team’s victory.*”
  238.  
  239. “Of course when the game starts,
  240. *15) Seeking guidance from your fellow teammates is not allowed.*”
  241.  
  242. “During play, all you can look at
  243. is the board and your own cards.”
  244.  
  245. >Ex-pumpkin head
  246. If you’re disqualified after a single pass,
  247. whoever goes first will be at an extreme disadvantage, won’t they?
  248.  
  249. How will we decide who goes first and second---
  250. not to mention the team arrangement?
  251.  
  252. >Kumagawa
  253. “I have an idea about that.”
  254. “Choujabaru-kun!”
  255.  
  256. >Choujabaru
  257. Yes,
  258. Kumagawa-sama.
  259.  
  260. It’s been prepared for use over here.
  261.  
  262. /08
  263. >Choujabaru
  264. Bloody Roulette,
  265.  
  266. the compass that determines fate.
  267.  
  268. /09
  269. >Choujabaru
  270. This is Bloody Seven’s 15...no, 16 is it...
  271. *16) The player selected by the roulette wheel will play a card.*
  272.  
  273. In other words,
  274. teams, seating order, first, second,
  275. none of that matters.
  276.  
  277. You could go 7 times in a row, or not all.
  278.  
  279. Of course, I will take the duty
  280. of spinning the roulette wheel.
  281.  
  282. I promise you all an
  283. impartial result,
  284. so you needn’t worry.
  285.  
  286. >Ears
  287. Making the sequence random,
  288. that’s smart.
  289.  
  290. Both the teams and the players become even.
  291.  
  292. And of course, it’s obvious to
  293. leave the dealer role to Choujabaru-kun
  294.  
  295. to prevent any of our
  296. abnormal offsets.
  297.  
  298. But Kumagawa-senpai,
  299. that means
  300.  
  301. you’re forcing a one-sided impartiality
  302. here, aren’t you?
  303.  
  304. You’ve regained that “All Fiction” of yours right?
  305.  
  306. With no assurance that you
  307. won’t use that skill and play some trick,
  308.  
  309. I can’t join this match!
  310.  
  311. /10
  312. You don’t need to worry--
  313.  
  314. I’ll keep watch over
  315.  
  316. not just Kumagawa-kun’s trickery,
  317. but everyone else’s as well.
  318.  
  319. >Chef + pumpkin
  320. The world’s most troublesome senpai has come....!!
  321.  
  322. >Choujabaru
  323. I took the liberty
  324. of calling Nabeshima-sama
  325. as a guest.
  326.  
  327. The incident concerning
  328. Aka-sama and Kumagawa-sama’s battle of trickery
  329. had reached me,
  330.  
  331. therefore in my humble opinion,
  332. I thought it might be necessary
  333. to be able to deter some tricks.
  334.  
  335. >Mogana
  336. Well, that is true...
  337. This is the only person by whom
  338.  
  339. I wouldn’t want to be branded as unfair....
  340.  
  341. /11
  342. >Choujabaru
  343. By the way,
  344. to keep changing the cards from red to black
  345. is troublesome,
  346. so I took it upon myself to prepare these cards.
  347.  
  348. These are double-faced trick cards,
  349.  
  350. where H is on the back of S,
  351. and C is on the back of D.
  352.  
  353.  
  354. These cards allow me to
  355. apply the cards that players submit
  356. and the resulting changes on the board.
  357.  
  358. In other words,
  359. the only one
  360. who can touch the board is me.
  361.  
  362. Though I am unskilled,
  363. this is also to deter trickery.
  364.  
  365. >Chef
  366. If it gets rid of tricks,
  367. it’s a rule I don’t have a problem with.
  368.  
  369. At the very least,
  370. I’m not one to run
  371.  
  372. from a game of this level.
  373.  
  374. But,
  375. As this is a gamble,
  376. I’d like to clarify the extent of the bet in advance.
  377.  
  378. Kumagawa-senpai,
  379.  
  380. *What will you put at stake for this match*?
  381.  
  382. /12
  383. >Chef
  384. If we lose,
  385. the Student Committee Union will surrender to
  386. the Naked Apron Alliance.
  387.  
  388. So if we win,
  389. what will you do for us?
  390.  
  391. What kind of merit is there
  392. for us to accept this match
  393.  
  394. that compares to protecting
  395. this school’s everyday life?
  396.  
  397. >Unzen
  398. “I can let out some of my hate towards you”,
  399.  
  400. certainly wouldn’t be bad...
  401. but in our position, that kind of personal emotion
  402. has to be separated.
  403.  
  404. As an organization, joining the likes of you is just risky.
  405.  
  406.  
  407. But if you still want us to step up to the match table,
  408.  
  409. you’d better offer up something even bigger than that risk, or else.
  410.  
  411.  
  412. I’ll say this right now,
  413. but your specialty, naked aprons,
  414. is a no go!
  415.  
  416. Because I’m so tired of looking
  417. at that kind of thing I could die,
  418.  
  419. thanks to the Public Morals Committee!
  420.  
  421. /13
  422. >Kumagawa
  423. “All in.”
  424.  
  425. “All of these talented people (kanji reads “human treasures”) that compose the Naked Apron Alliance---”
  426. “these talented people”
  427.  
  428. “I’ll bet ‘all’ of that.”
  429.  
  430.  
  431. “The leader of class 19, and the Student Council Vice-President.”
  432.  
  433. “The ace of the swimming club, and Student Council Treasurer.”
  434.  
  435. “And last but not least, Ajimu Najimi’s terminals, and the 5 cadets which carry the future of the Student Council.”
  436.  
  437. “If we lose, I’ll concede the 7 of us to the Student Committee Union.”
  438.  
  439. “Use us as people for odd jobs,
  440. or dirty jobs,
  441. or anything.
  442.  
  443. >Pumpkin
  444. It’s an official winner-take-all...
  445. in other words, that means all of the bet
  446. is neatly packaged for us here...
  447.  
  448. Being able to take in Kikaijima,
  449. who has a grip on the Student Council’s wallet,
  450. is certainly appealing, isn’t it...
  451.  
  452. >Hair
  453. It can’t be denied that
  454. the majority of the Student Committees
  455. are lacking talented people----
  456. By that I mean
  457.  
  458. I’d be grateful to be able to have
  459. Kurokami-chan’s successor candidates
  460. in the palm of my hand...
  461.  
  462. >Aka Aoki
  463. Pre-emptively crushing a suspicious group
  464. like the Naked Apron Alliance
  465. was the Student Committee’s original idea,
  466.  
  467. so it’s a relatively good gamble----
  468. but....
  469.  
  470. /14
  471. >Union
  472. But we don’t need Kumagawa--!!
  473.  
  474. >Mogana
  475. I can hear it...
  476.  
  477. I can hear the voices in everyone’s hearts...
  478.  
  479. >Blue Light Yokohama (her dialect)
  480. Then,
  481. I got Kumagawa-senpai~~~~!
  482. First come first served~~~~!
  483.  
  484. Even if you say you want him
  485. I won’t give him to you, so there~~~~!
  486.  
  487. >Union members
  488. Wha-....Tachiarai,
  489. are you thinking straight!?
  490. What’s wrong!?
  491.  
  492. Even though you’re still young,
  493. you’re throwing away your life!?
  494.  
  495. /15
  496. >Tachiarai
  497. Eh~~~~
  498. Why~~~~?
  499.  
  500. I like him you know,
  501. Kumagawa-senpai that is~~
  502.  
  503. Trying to capture the
  504. Student Committee Union,
  505. he’s got guts~~~
  506.  
  507. This kind of attitude
  508. which totally disregards the other side!
  509. I think we could learn a thing or two you know~~~
  510.  
  511. >Kumagawa
  512. “Kikaijima-san”
  513. “Kikaijima-san”
  514.  
  515. “I wonder if it’s ok
  516. if I naturally become friends
  517. with just Tachiarai-san”
  518.  
  519. >Mogana
  520. Misogi-chan,
  521.  
  522. please don’t get enticed so easily!
  523.  
  524. That’s the composure of
  525. one of those elites you hate you know!?
  526.  
  527. >Pumpkin
  528. ...Then, I’ll take Yojirou-san.
  529.  
  530. There’s already been one circumstance where
  531. I was forced to suffer.
  532.  
  533. >Ears
  534. Me and Wanizuka-chan
  535.  
  536. There’s something to look out for
  537. in those fighting techniques of hers.
  538.  
  539. >Chef girl
  540. Kibougaoka.
  541.  
  542. She’s delicious.
  543.  
  544. >Aka Aoki
  545. Takarabe-chan, I guess.
  546.  
  547. There’s something I have to teach her anyway.
  548.  
  549. >Hair
  550. mm, I can safely say Kikitsu-san.
  551.  
  552. She was the MVP of yesterday’s event after all.
  553.  
  554. >Unzen
  555. As far as I’m concerned,
  556. I’m comfortable with talented people,
  557.  
  558. so of course the only option’s
  559. Kikaijima Mogana.

  659. Kibougaoka-chan and Megusono-chan
  660. both have 6 cards in their hand.
  661.  
  662. Everyone else has 7 from the start...
  663. Well with these rules,
  664. each individual’s hand doesn’t matter that much though.
  665.  
  666. And from what I’ve heard,
  667. The rules of “Bloody Seven” don’t have any tricks you can rely on.
  668.  
  669. Just being based on Sevens or Othello alone,
  670. it’s not a game where there’s a guaranteed way to win.
  671.  
  672. But on the other hand, leaving it totally up to luck...
  673.  
  674. it’s not the kind of game where “the luckier side will win” either.
  675.  
  676.  
  677. Even if you can’t beat the rules,
  678.  
  679. you can beat the players!!
