Saint Pigeonation Academy
Year 2, Class 3/Fantail pigeon
An aristocrat from France
[note: this is actually a pun. The “jiko” used is for “accident,” but “jikoshoukai,” with different kanji, actually means “self-introduction.”]
This happened in the spring, when Sakuya transferred in.
Introduce yourself to everybirdie~
This is a fantail pigeon that’s come all the way from France~
Please tell us your name~
I am a pureblooded aristocrat.
I have no name to give to fools!!
This is “Name To Give To Fools.”
Let’s get along~
(Board: Morning homeroom)
His given name is “No...!?”
Hey, hey, Name To Give To Fools!
That’s not my name!
Do not insult me!
My name is Shirogane Le Bel Sakuya!
Whoa, no matter which you use, it’s a hard name!
Coooo! (Which parts are the last and the given name!?)
You don’t even know this? What a foolish commoner...
Coo coo coo! (Okosan thinks this part is the given name!)
It is not!
Born and raised an emperor
Which committee are you going to join?
What a foolish question.
I am already the person of the highest authority.
(The emperor of Pigeonation)
I am the student council president!
But the student council is decided by election......
Aristocrats have no need for elections!
He doesn’t know anything about democracy!
Today, it’s San’s and my turn on cleaning duty, and from now on it’s yours too, Sakuya.
I swear it on the name Le Bel!
Leave it to me.
It will be done perfectly.
First we’ll do something about the dust on the floor.
After that is the blackboard and the lockers.
Following that, the windows need...
Here, your broom.
Why must I personally do the cleaning!!
That is the job of commoners!
Because it’s our turn on cleaning duty!
Big brother is a commoner
Why you, do not address me so familiarly at school!
I’ll be infected by your commoner stink!
You should be nicer to your big brother.
Sakuya and the health committee chairman Sakazaki are brothers?
It seems they have different fathers.
...it’s hard to tell the difference!
Because there are three fantail characters......
Rules for telling the difference
It’s extremely regrettable that you only have trouble telling the fantails apart!
But it’s true that it’s biased toward some species of birds...
And so, Sakazaki! I order you to wear glasses!
That’s an easy order.
Coo coo! (And you’ll have an ahoge from now on too!)
[ahoge: a hair curl/whorl that sticks up from the head, usually seen on “idiot” characters.]
Pseudo-human appearance manga act.04
In case of emergency,
[THIS PUN. It’s “gakkyuu saiban,” a direct reference to “Gyakuten Saiban,” the Japanese name for the Ace Attorney series.]
Coo coo coo! (That’s dangerous! That’s a dangerous sound!)
(board: Class Attorney)
It’s been pretty quiet, hasn’t it, Sakuya?
Has a bird murder incident occurred inside the school?
Here, in this place, there is something that must be judged.
You know of what I am speaking, do you not?
Honestly, the mongrels here......
Do you understand? Today’s agenda is
(Get the drama CD
To decide whether or not we will get rid of the blatant advertising from last time!
Last time’s blatant advertising...?
Coo coo coo! (What a gaudy bird! He’s a bird who advocates commercialism!)
That’s right, we’ll do it!
We must decide how to deal with that golden pheasant!
Hey, what do you mean by getting rid of it?
We can’t go back to one month ago and erase it.
Hmph, you’re slow, Kawara.
Look at this.
It’s a secret mail from a member of the editorial committee!
We’re indebted to you. This is Takeshobo T-ta.
The other day, when I was walking along the road, my eyes landed on a bird’s pure white droppings that had fallen on the ground. When I thought of how the sh*t was white, and if it was miraculous or if it was mysterious, or if it was amazing-------this part cut-------I would like for the “Drama CD Second Wing’s Joint Planning” material to be omitted from the printed release; is this all right?
I feel that it is material that only pertains to current events.
I would be happy if you would consider it.
Woow, it’s true!
He really stepped on a nail!
Coo coo coo! (He suddenly forced his way in so it isn’t allowed! It’s a good idea!)
We’ll vote on whether that insolent golden pheasant has to receive the penalty of being erased.
(Board: Guilty <-> No)
Because there is no use arguing, I judge him guilty!
Coooo! (Okosan does as well!)
Eh, ummm, I... yeah......
Though it’s fine either way...
But it seems like the judgment trial decided on something that can’t be erased......
Class:02 The Rapidly Decreasing Population
Okay, everybirdie, take your seats~
It’s time for bird history~
Last time* we got as far as humans being in a terrible position because of avian influenza~
(board: bird history (2)
The population’s decline)
After that, they were wondering what to do......
*Reference Chapter 2
This powerful rogue virus was given the name Sumatra Influenza.
The wise humans tried with all their might to think up a countermeasure.
Why was it that the population had declined to 30% of its original numbers in the course of two years?
At this rate, humans would be wiped off the face of the Earth.
The solution they came up with after much thinking was a method to cut off the source of the infection.
It was a plan to exterminate the birds, “Operation Carneades.”
Somehow, it’s become pretty suspicious~
Next time, I’ll explain the details of the plan~
