I Went Out With a Losing Heroine, But Before I knew It, My Childhood Friend, Who's Supposed to be The Winning Heroine Thought We Were Dating, Got Angry and Went Into an Argument - Chapter 82
When Marin held up her phone, Kasumi and Nagisa couldn’t help but stare at Yō’s face instead of Marin’s.
The way they looked at him meant something like, “Did you talk to her about it?”
“I see you’re still watching that channel…”
Yō noticed Nagisa and Kasumi’s gazes and said something back to Marin.
Then Marin pressed her phone against her ample breasts and smiled debaucherously.
“Of course…! After all, they’re all great videos…!”
What was Marin thinking right now?
At the very least, they can see that she’s looking at Yō and the others, but they’re not in her field of vision.
“―Hey, that’s definitely our channel she’s looking at, right? Why is she looking at us like she’s looking at something fantastic?”
Kasumi was still not satisfied with Marin’s attitude, so she lowered her voice a bit so that only Yō could hear her and spoke into his ear.
Yō chuckled and looked at Kasumi.
“As you can see, she’s a dreamy girl, isn’t she? That’s good, since she seems to like our videos.”
“But we can’t risk being exposed. It’s not like Yō to tell anyone.”
“In case you were wondering, it was unavoidable. I’ll also explain that I tried to hide the name of the channel.”
To Kasumi’s disapproval, Yō explained that he had no choice.
Of course, it’s no secret that the reason why he had no choice was because he had given out the channel name after being begged by Marin.
“What do you particularly like about that channel, Marin-chan?”
Kasumi was questioning Yō.
Nagisa, who had already guessed this, smiled to distract Marin and encouraged her to talk.
“Let’s see… the beautiful, breath-taking scenery, and of course, but also, the narration on the video?”
While talking to Yō, Kasumi caught Marin’s words with her ears and reacted like a cat.
Marin, unaware of Kasumi’s condition, continued to talk with a look of admiration in her eyes.
“A beautiful, clear, mature woman’s voice and a careful, wonderful vocabulary for describing scenery. I’m sure it’s done by a very nice person…!”
“But that channel is a big one, right? Aside from the voice, the words aren’t usually what the person is thinking, right?”
(How rude! I’m the one who thought of it!)
In response to Nagisa’s remarks, Kasumi glared at her with such thoughts, but of course Nagisa knew what Kasumi was thinking.
Then, when Marin said something with certainty, it poked her.
“No, I think she’s the one who’s thinking about it. And I think she’s saying it while watching the video for the first time.”
At Marin’s words, Yō and the others stared at Marin in surprise.
Then Marin held up her index finger with an expression of confidence.
“She speaks very smoothly, but sometimes there are pauses where she seems to be thinking.”
“How can you be so sure that she’s not just looking at the manuscript?”
“No. If that’s the case, they could just cut out the pauses, right? I think it would be easy, since only the voice would have been added afterwards. I think the reason why they did it without cutting is because the narrator, who can’t see the scenery directly, was asked to give her honest impression of the scenery she saw for the first time. That way, the narrator can choose the words that give the same impression as the viewers who are watching the video for the first time too.”
It was a surprising guess from Marin, who usually seemed to be a laid-back and natural person.
And that guess was exactly what Yō had been thinking, which left the three of them speechless.
Marin is a natural, or to put it another way, she seems to be out of her depth, but she’s not the smartest person in the school, competing with Kasumi for the top spot.
“That’s why I think it’s the narrator who’s thinking of the words.”
Marin stated with certainty and looked into Nagisa’s eyes.
There was a certain confidence in her eyes as well, which made Nagisa change her mind about Marin’s assessment.
“That’s amazing, you’re probably right.”
“I’m glad you agree with me. I wanted to be just like this woman, you know?”
Marin’s face once again had a feverish expression on it.
It seemed that she had come to admire this woman.
When Kasumi saw Marin, she tugged on Yō’s clothes to get him to look at her.
“I think she’s a very nice girl. You should pat her on the head and pamper her.”
“I don’t have any sweets right now, so you should stroke her head and spoil her.”
“…Isn’t that a bit strange?”
“There’s nothing wrong with that. She’s a fan of ours. I think we should be thanking our fans here.”
Kasumi’s mood changed and she even started to suggest that Marin should be pampered.
Her face was relaxed in a very good mood, perhaps she was feeling better because she was not usually praised directly.
“Well, okay, but…”
As for Yō, it was nice to see that she continued to watch the videos even though it had been quite a while since he had first shown them to her.
It seemed that Marin’s favorite part was not the pictures that he had taken, but Kasumi’s narration voice, but that didn’t matter to Yō.
As long as they liked their videos, they were still fans, no matter what the reason.
So when Yō reached out and started stroking Marin’s head―
“W-What is it…!?”
Startled, Marin stiffened in surprise.
However, she immediately said, “Mou~, it can’t be helped…” She looked as if she was being petted because Yō wanted to spoil her, and was happily stroking her head.
Thank you for reading!
And I have something to report! (*´▽｀*)
In fact, Nekokuro wrote a short story about,
“I confessed to the person I love and thought we were going out, but it turns out she was her twin sister.”
It was made into a Youtube manga!
The title is
It has a very cute illustration,
And the voices are also very cute, making this a wonderful manga!
I did my best to make the story even more interesting!
The channel name is,
A while back,
This is the same channel that published two novels!
Nekokuro has been working on the scenario for a few months now.
And I was fortunate enough to be able to have it published as a Youtube manga!
By the way, there are already two works in which Nekokuro was in charge of the scenario.
Among the works that Nekokuro has been in charge of, there are 2 works that have over 1 million views
There’s also one that’s close to a million views (990,000 PV), so please take a look at that too!
“My sister’s best friend came into my room, so I hid under the bed and she suddenly started changing her clothes. If she caught me watching her, she would blame me and I would have to go on a date with her.”
“I slipped into the beautiful boy’s clothes and they were soft. When I found out from my brocon sister that her true identity was actually a woman, she asked, ‘Onii-chan, were you cheating on me?’ in which I replied, ‘I’ve been looking for your boyfriend…'”
If you like them, I’d appreciate it!
I look forward to your continued support!
Translator’s Afterword: Good thing finding those videos weren’t that hard but man, that’s quite a long afterword xD. It’s not subtitled and I think it’s protected so I won’t be able to translate and reupload it to my channel. They are in Japanese, if you can at least understand spoken Japanese to a certain extent, please give them a watch!
On another hand, I added 3 new light novel projects under my name, I hope you guys can give them a read too! (Cuz man, sensei had been taking a long time updating his series so I had to pick up new ones in the meantime)
