“But, in order to climb the ladder, there’s no avoiding that road. Besides, while it’s true that Ryuuen-kun is a tough opponent, you’re not someone that can be easily defeated either, Sakayanagi-san.”
Although Sakayanagi had a past dispute over leadership of their class with Katsuragi, Class A had almost twice as many points as Ryuuen’s Class B and was the undisputed number one. That gap ensured that even if Class A lost one or two times, they would still comfortably remain on top.
“Even though Class C and D have a difference of over 200 points, Class D is gaining momentum, right? Are you sure that you won’t be overtaken by them?”

In terms of individual strength, some of them wouldn’t lose to anyone in the other classes… Looking at it this way, It seems like I really don’t have any room to spare.”
“Indeed, there are some interesting talented individuals in Class D. Headed by Hirata-kun and Kushida-san, who have strong communication skills, and have well-balanced grades, along with Sudo-kun, who’s the only one to get an A+ rating in physical ability in the entire 2nd year. Meanwhile, their hidden trump card, Ayanokouji-kun, got a perfect score on an extremely difficult math test. Then, there’s also Kouenji-kun, whose strengths and limits are still a mystery; he too is a dangerous adversary.”
From saying it deliberately, Sakayanagi made Ichinose feel the thick layer of students in Class 2-D once again.
“And then, the leader who brought them together and led them forward, Horikita-san. She has both excellent academic and physical abilities, and has recently joined the student council.”

“Sorry for continuing with the tough words, but I think it’s only a matter of time before your class falls to Class D.”

“But what? Are you going to talk about the value of effort and friendship, those kinds of abstract concepts?”
Sakayanagi simply took the words out of Ichinose’s mouth, and Ichinose could only swallow back what she was going to say.
“It’s impossible to win with these kinds of vague things, no matter how hard you try. While every class has clearly increased their strength over the course of the year, I don’t see much growth in yours, Ichinose-san.”
“That… that’s not the case. We’ve grown as well.”
“I didn’t say that you haven’t grown. It’s just a matter of how much.”
“You might not believe it, Sakayanagi-san, but I don’t think we’ll lose.”
Sakayanagi smiled slightly, and slowly shook her head.
