: Hehe, some of the pages in this chapter include "character guide" on the side of the page... and they are exactly the same contents as the Character Guide
we already made! <Caution!! Chapter Three spoilers below!! Please proceed only if you'd like to know the story spoilers BEFORE you read the actual chapter!>
The chapter starts with a sort of flash back... Hachiken is being in his Middle (junior high) school in his dream, while in reality being in his dorm bed at Dai-Ezo Ag high school. In the dream, Hachiken is telling his friend that he's not taking any after-school "club" activities at school, in order to spend more time studying, and to attend after-school private-run exam-prep courses, because he would like to enter an University that's ranked as high as possible.
And then the alarm clock goes off and Hachiken is brought back to the reality of getting up at Five 'Oclock in the morning to do the manual labor in the name of practice-learning
in the chicken coup. Awww...
Besides Hachiken being so tired and his body barely able to move, Tamako also fell dizzy and loses balance
. Hachiken feels kindred spirit. But...actually, Tamako is just being hungry because she didn't have morning snack.
Teacher (I think he is a teacher, though I can't remember his name ^^)
sees that Hachiken is very tired, and threatens that breaking one egg will be one day of expulsion from school
. That scares heck out of Hachiken that he almost drops the egg he was handling. Of course the teacher was joking
, but tells Hachiken to be just as careful handling the eggs. When Hachiken mutters "We are lower than those firm animals in the hierarchy here, aren't we
?" The teacher corrects him and declares, "Forget being lower than them in the hierarchy, you are their slave!"
The day's school starts... The result of Math mini test is back
, and Tokiwa is super excited that he got good grade!
He thanks Hachiken for his help with Math, and this makes Hachiken happy as well.
Tokiwa shows his test grade
, excited that for the first time in his life he received DOUBLE DIGITS test grade in Math!
Hachiken, expecting to see some reasonable grade, sees Tokiwa received 10 points (out of possible 100 points
XDD) and the glass in his glasses shutters in shock
. XDD Hackien groans "how come, after I took that much time to taught you that well, you only got that little...
" (and the caption showing Hackiken saying: "And, that was a multiple choice test!
" XDD And, Tokiwa's comeback is: "Don't underestimate my dumbness
." XDD (I sooo love Arakawa-sensei's writing!!) (Ok, technically, what Tokiwa really said is "I told you not to underestimate my dumbness." But you get the picture.. ^^)
Hachiken gets mad, and decides to teach Tokiwa all over again from the beginning
, and Tokiwa is all for it.
Seeing this, classmates are amazed at Hachiken's determination to help Tokiwa with his math
Meantime, home-room teacher drops by and reminds everyone that next week is the deadline for turning in the paper telling which club each student would like to join for the mandatory club activity
. While cleaning the chicken house for the evening work-study duty, Hachiken ponders which club to join.
The evening work-study is over and group A's one week of work-study is done. No more getting up at Five O'clock in the morning for the rest of April.
While the rest of group A goes back to the dorm, Hachiken decide to chck out some of the "club"s.
He runs into three upperclassmen ogling the picture and commenting about the attractive boobs and a curve around the hip.
Turned out they are the members of "Holstein" club
They want Hachiken to join their club
and Hachiken is trapped there. But, saved by the advisor Equestrian club, Mr. Nakajima just passing by on a horseback.
Mr. Nakajima takes Hachiken to Equestrian club
Long story short (you can read Musou_Mitai
's English translation for this part ^^), Hachiken decides to join Equestrian club
Hachiken attends the first club meeting as a member of Equestrian club
Just as Hachiken is thinking that attending Agricultural high school may not be that bad after all, as the study is easy, he got a nice cute friend, Mikage, and above all, there will be no more work-duty to get him up at 5 O'clock in the morning for the rest of April...
Just then, Mr. Nakajima tells freshmen club members that to take care of the horses, club members are required to get up at FOUR O'clock in the morning.
The chapter ends with Hachiken, upon hearing Mr. Nakajima's words, falls on the ground
Awww...poor Hachiken! Anyone who'd like to read this chapter in English, please PM A Pierrot's Aria.
