ase, I can’t win unless I defeat the person who beats her…”

“With fighting, it’s all about compatibility.
It’s not just about raw strength.
And so the person who beats your aunt won’t necessarily be unbeatable for us.
Besides, we’ve only lost to you aunt once.
So we might win next time.
We’re just getting started! It’s too early to get depressed about it!”

“…You’re right.
I’m sorry.
I just lost a little of my confidence.
But I’m fine now.”

She didn’t really look fine.
But that couldn’t be helped.

I had said that it was still possible for us to win, but I had no idea how we would do it.
It was too bad we couldn’t last longer in order to get more information.
I had let my guard down just because I was shocked that Satomi and the others were gone.
From now on, even if my comrades fell, I would have to continue to fight for their sake…!

“Ah, it seems like the preliminaries are finished now.”

The live feed that was displayed in the air disappeared, and the final rankings came up.
1st was… Gaming Crocks?
I had never heard of them before, but I could hear other players muttering things like, ‘The Gaming Crocks!?’ ‘So they lasted after all…’ ‘Tsk.
It’s going to be a tough fight.’ So they seemed to have a good reputation.

…Huh? So someone already beat her aunt?
That did give me hope…!

“See, Necoco.
It’s too early to give up…”

“Wh-why is my aunt 2nd place!? She shouldn’t have lost to a guild that relies on superior numbers…”

I suppose she was rather shocked…
Perhaps she felt conflicted to see her hero get beaten.
However, I was indeed curious about how they had beaten her…

“I became solo near the beginning.”


She was right here!
Ignoring the fact that she had once again taken me by surprise, I listened to what she had to say.

“Battle royales really are difficult, aren’t they? You have to be aware of everything, and manage your items.
And I usually don’t think much when using items, so I run out very quickly.”

“But! Surely you could have made up for all of that with the way you play!”

“No, no.
It was pretty severe.
There were four people left, and they targeted me after I had defeated another party and wasn’t on my guard.
Well, I don’t really care about the rankings during the preliminaries anyway.
It just means that I can’t lose after this.”

She really was an easy-going person.
While I wouldn’t call her indifferent, she showed no signs of nervousness at all.
She didn’t even seem to be happy about going to the finals.
It was more about the excitement about being able to fight… A strange person.

So…the preliminary rankings didn’t matter.
I suppose she was right.
While it was supposed to give you some advantage in terms of how you were paired up in the tournament, it wasn’t really a reflection of the party’s actual strength.
In the end, it was all about luck!

That being said, I was curious about which parties were in the top.
And so I would look at the rankings from 1 to 64.
…There were several players that I recognized.
While part of me was happy, I was also nervous at the possibility of having to fight them.
Also, 64 parties wasn’t much at all.
They had cut off so many players.

“Now, who is the 64th that barely made it in… Huh!?”

The party that was at the bottom of the ranking was…VRHAR!?
As Nord’s name was there, this should be the real party with the best members…
Why was such a strong guild there…?
