For the baka trio: If you had to sum up your thoughts on Chizuru in one word, which would it be? Why?
“Easier to describe her in one word than our thoughts,” says Harada, frowning. “But then, I guess the one feeds into the other. Either way, I’d say she’s… ‘earnest’.” He smiles faintly. “She throws herself heart and soul into everything she does.”
“Oh yeah, she’s definitely what I’d call ‘honest’,” agrees Nagakura, crossing his arms, and seems to be trying not to smile. “Not that it’s a bad thing, but if you ask me, she tells the truth way too much to be living in a compound full of guys like us. Couldn’t lie her way out of a wet paper lantern, and she’s just lucky most of us are too nice to take advantage.”
Undoubtedly, Heisuke would ordinarily jump to Chizuru’s defense… but his thoughts seem to be elsewhere, as he has been turning gradually redder since the question was first asked. Eventually, he speaks, but can say only one word: “C-cute,” he mumbles, glancing aside, and says no more.
