Chapter 8:

Club Searching: Anime & Manga Appreciation Club

Why Is This Girl So Shy Around Me?!

"So Makoto what do you think about the club so far?"

"It's awesome! I mean look at all this manga and anime dvd's! This is like heaven!" Makoto had been running around looking at all the shelves overjoyed.

"I know right! I'm even thinking about joining too!"

Kota had then joined Makoto in jumping around looking at all the shelves. Ando the club president was just staring with laughter in seeing how they were acting.

"You guys really like manga and anime."

"Of course we do. It's the best form of entertainment out there."

Makoto then calmed down and went to the other members separately to talk to them about the club while Kota sat down near the shelf reading. He went up to the vice president first.

"Excuse me Aikawa-san?"

"Yes what do you want?"

"Sorry to bother you but I had a question. So is this whole club just about reading manga and watching anime?"

"Yeah but since the teachers would get mad about us just doing that. We write about what we read and submit it to our advisor."

"Oh, so there is basically another set of homework that comes with this club."

"Not really we all collectively write it."

"Ok thanks for answering my question."

Makoto walks away from Aikawa and tries to see who isn't busy that can talk to him. Fueki and Ando are busy talking with each other. He sees that Fukuda is talking with Kota about manga and giving him a lot of recommendations. The only person who isn't doing anything important is Sasaki who is reading manga on the table. As Makoto walks up to him he feels someone grab his shirt.

"Who are you?" 

It was Midori Gato the sleeping girl had woke up and was talking in a monotone voice.

"I'm Makoto Haku and I came to your club to experience it and decide if I want to join."

"Oh, ok look around as much as you want. It would be fun to have a new member."

She smiled in a weird way which made Makoto get nervous thinking of what her personality could be. But he also saw her eyes which he thought were pretty and made him think she was cute but he shook it off. She then went back to sleep. Makoto sat down next to Sasaki who looked up from his manga and saw Makoto.

"What you reading Sasaki-san?"

"Huh I'm not reading anything." He still seemed very shy which made Makoto think that it was actually apart of his personality.

"Then what's that in your hands?"

"Oh, I-uh...aahhh!"

Makoto began to laugh from seeing how Sasaki was reacting but then calmed him down.

"So anyways is Gato-san really asleep all the time?"

"Y-yeah she rarely ever wakes up which is weird how she woke up and talked to you just now."

"Really? That's weird."

" what do you think about our club Haku-san?"

"It's really cool and it seems like I would enjoy myself a lot here, but I'm not making my decision yet."

"Why is that?"

"I still want to look at the Art Club. Believe me it would be amazing to be apart of this club but it would be unfair no to at least give it a chance. Unlike the video game club hehe."

"I understand. If you don't end up joining the club I hope you can still be friends with us."

"Of course. You all seem like really nice people."

Kota comes up behind Makoto and taps him on the shoulder.

"Hey Makoto you still need to check out the Art Club right. You can't spend the whole day here."

"Your right. Alright Sasaki-san see ya later."


Makoto and Kota leave the club room saying bye to everyone and head off to the Art Club.
