Episode 1: The tag team of glory!
Title: The tag team of glory!

Location: Shopping district’s arena


He was a weak boy.
Of weak spirit. Of weak body. He led a weak lifestyle.


Without a purpose, he let himself be carried away by the surroundings
leading an unbearably mediocre lifestyle.


However, a certain day.
He had a changing experience.

Arena

On top of the ring,
there was a fight between two wrestlers.


An exchange of techniques. The match drawing to a close,
going back and forth.


Cheers for one of the wrestlers became louder,
but the opponent managed to land a direct hit.


The end of the match was imminent.
If it continued like this, his defeat would be assured.


… Hah!!


A shy young boy raised his voice.
He yelled the wrestler’s name.


Rather, the name of his hero,
he shouted it again and again.


The wrestler couldn’t disappoint him.
He stood up, and let out a big roar.


A swift combo, quick jabs.
Everyone’s voices started counting down.


The spectators let out the biggest cheer yet.


That was the day when everything changed for that boy.
The day where he was given a reason to live.


A world that he didn’t know much about,
that day, a fascinating new universe opened for him.


“I want to be like him”


From that day on, he will aim to become a hero.
Those memories in his chest. Glory as his motivation.


… Yes.
A hero, a profesional wrestler.


- Ikebukuro, Underground Arena -


Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

IIIIIt’s me!
Tauruuuuuus Maaask!!


Among loud cheers, there was one man standing on the ring,
howling towards the sky.


His fingers pointing to the skies, with an inspiring speech
and his trademark bull-shaped green mask.


It was a battleground, the Ikebukuro Underground Arena.
And in the middle of the ring there was a young raging bull.


Taurus Mask expression angry.png

Now, how about this technique?!
If you are able to endure this… Then, prove it!


Taurus Mask threw the microphone he was holding,
and jumped on top of one of the posts of the ring.


The mike made a shrieking noise when it hit the floor.
After every move, the audience’s cheers grew louder.


Leg lariat, elbow smash, high flyer.
Hip attack, kick drop.


Although still a bit unrefined,
he performed numerous wrestling moves. And then…


Taurus Mask expression happy.png

Datsushiaaaaaaaatsu!!!


The cries of victory reverberated across the arena.


Waiting Room

Taurus Mask expression maskless neutral.png

Hah… Hah… Hah…!!

Taurus Mask expression maskless neutral.png

Alright, I won… I really won!
I knew I could do it!

Taurus Mask expression maskless neutral.png

If I maintain this momentum, I’m sure that event will also be a success!
Fight! FIGHT!! You got this!

Taurus Mask expression maskless neutral.png

That’s right, this is the real me!
Everyone’s favorite wrestler student! And that name is…


At that moment, someone from outside
called Taurus Mask’s name.



2 options
Tauruuuuuus Mask! Great work.
Taurus Mask expression maskless happy.png

Thank you for coming! Thank you!

Taurus Mask expression maskless surprised.png

O-oh, thank you!



Taurus Mask expression maskless blush.png

GAH, mask! The mask!!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

That was close.
Ahh, good evening, Brother!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Waaaahahaha!
Name’s Tauru… Hey, wait a moment!

Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

Oh, if it isn’t you [Player]!
So you decided to come see me today!!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

I want to know your honest opinion, Brother!
How was it, how was it?!


3 options
It was really cool! Not very good! Why don’t you try wearing fewer clothes?
Taurus Mask expression happy.png

Really? You really think that, Brother?!
I’m happy! I’m sooo happy!!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Everything was decided when I countered with that leg lairat,
my heart was about to burst from the excitement!

Taurus Mask expression sad.png

Ah, guh…! I still have ways to go.
The way of the wrestler is a hard one, Brother… !

Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

Do you want me to wear fewer clothes, Brother?!
W-well, that would be too embarrassing…!

Taurus Mask expression sad.png

But I’ll consider it.
However, the mask can’t go…

Taurus Mask expression sad.png

And this singlet is Bathym-san’s…
Awawawaw, I don’t think that will be possible!



Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

Eh~, why am I calling you Brother?
I’ll tell you, Brother!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Since the first time I met you…
I saw in you a burning soul!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

There is no barrier between genders or races!
Our souls got attracted to each other, that’s all there is to it!

Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

… To be honest, my memory is very fuzzy.
And I think I’m becoming more and more depressed.

Taurus Mask expression sad.png

The game that made me become a wrestler…
for some reason, I cannot remember it very well!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

I was so shocked, back home I covered myself
with my futon and cried to sleep!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Well, no reason to doubt myself now,
I don’t need to worry about that! Yeah!

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

Oh, that’s right!
There is another match I have to attend later today.

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

And you are invited, [Player]!
I promise that you are gonna like it!

Taurus Mask expression blush.png

I hope there are still tickets left…
But please, come! It’s not too far away!


3 options
It would be my pleasure! I have other plans… How much is it?
Taurus Mask expression happy.png

Yaaahoooo!
I knew you would accept!

Taurus Mask expression sad.png

Ehhhhh…
Well, I guess it can’t be helped if you have something else to do.

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

I’ll feel lonely… Huh, you lied?!
You tricked me! Enma-sama(*) will cut your tongue!

(*)The Yama (閻魔), also called Enma (閻魔 or えんま) in Japan, is a Buddhist equivalent of the Hindu god of the same name. This is the judge of the deceased that decides who goes where after death. Yama can look into the past deeds of any person, and it is said that no one can pass through their sermons without being scolded.

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

You don’t need to pay for the ticket.
You can just come and watch the show!



Taurus Mask expression happy.png

Well then, let’s go!
Let’s go!!


Shopping district

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

Well, back in this place!
It’s been a while since I’ve been in this shopping district! It feels like it was yesterday!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

This man-made street, always going straight!
Compassionate with the times! A road filled with strong and tender emotions!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

For a student, life looks like a big labyrinth.
And I’m a student wrestler! Battling, winning, that’s the way *I* decided to take!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

Hey, don’t start clapping!
I-I come to this shopping district often!


3 options
Wait, cheers?! Are you like this everytime you are here? (Just ignore him for now…)
Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

This homely feeling…
Thank you very much, everyone!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

I-I don’t do this everytime I’m here!
I don’t want to bother people that are shopping!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

Only sometimes, occasionally!
Specifically only once a week!

Taurus Mask expression blush.png

No, you definitely can’t ignore me!
It’ll make me think about a bunch of things before going to bed!



Waiting Room

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

This is the local venue of the shopping district!
In here there is a ring where they did exhibition matches!

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

I had to beg to Claude-san and Snow-san to borrow the mat,
posts and equipment from this place!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

And look, this poster is the best!
Coooool!!

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

These posters were stuck all over the premises of the shopping district.
They did a pretty good job, right?


The poster showed Taurus Mask right in the center
with a confident pose.


Taurus Mask expression sad.png

I felt selfish asking people to take my picture.
But anyway, I got this amazing photo taken!

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

These were all over the shopping district, of course.
I hope all the seats were taken!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

To celebrate the battle that young and old were waiting for!
And today is the day! Don’t miss it!

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

And this time I was able to ask for cooperation to
one of the most prominent figures of pro-wrestling from Tokyo~ !

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Negotiations took a while,
but I had some contacts in the underground arena.

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

Since this is such a small town I was expecting
that they would refuse… But they ended up agreeing!

Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

Huh, what about the operating expenses?
I’ve decided to use the money I win fighting!


1 option
Don’t pay it all on your own!


Taurus Mask expression blush.png

Y-you shouldn’t be that surprised…!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

When I was young, there once was a
professional wrestling organization in this same shopping district.

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

I usually was there watching matches…
I don’t think I’ll ever forget it.

Taurus Mask expression sad.png

But… that’s way in the past, you know?
Today there’s no interest investing in this small district.

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

However, I really want to do this.
In the future, I want to perform in a pro wrestling match in this place.

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

The underground arena also helped me with the money.
I was fortunate that it was a reasonable amount.

Taurus Mask expression sad.png

Today’s children may be less interested in wrestling,
but maybe… maybe…

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

Like old times… There may still
be some children interested in it.

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

If I keep them in my mind,
then I’m motivated to push forward.

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

Ah, it’s my phone.
Give me a moment.


Shopping District

Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

Ehhh… ?!
I won’t be able to make it on time?!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

Wait a moment!
Such a sudden…!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

A flock of cows are blocking the highway…?
Oh no, this must be a joke!

Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

Because if I can’t go…
If either of the opponents don’t show up, there can’t be a match!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

This can’t be…!
The kids are waiting…!

Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

There may even be a kid like me in the audience… !

Taurus Mask expression sad.png

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

…This is bad. The organizers are gonna be angry.
Rampant cows aren’t unusual in this place.

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

I’ll explain the situation to the organizers during a break.
Troubles… They can happen to anyone.

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

But I’ll overcome them! I’m Taurus Mask!
One or two inconveniences, that’s nothing!

Taurus Mask expression sad.png


Waiting Room

Taurus Mask expression sad.png


3 options (same response)
So this is the place, huh. Did you ask when it starts? So… What did they say?


Taurus Mask expression sad.png

Taurus Mask expression sad.png

Gah, what should I do…
I’m finally here, but…

Taurus Mask expression sad.png

I thought about various excuses…
However… they…

Taurus Mask expression sad.png

The audience is already gathered.
I cannot announce a cancellation anymore.

Taurus Mask expression sad.png

Everyone in the audience looking down on me…!
My face… burning up…!

Taurus Mask expression sad.png

Uuu-…


1 option
Will you let me help you?


Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

…Huh?


1 option
Let’s do it.


Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

[Player].

Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

T-that’s right…
A tag team...

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

Yes, that’s it!
A single match!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

If we decide to…!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

I’m the ferocious green bull Taurus Mask!
I will not lose to any difficulties! Not now, not ever!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

It happened in a peaceful shopping district.
There, Taurus Mask faced a big crisis!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

However, when he arrived to the arena…
There was someone missing!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

His opponent disappeared!
A hero cannot fight without an opponent!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

But who could help him…
[Player]! It can only be you!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

How about it, Brother?!
I will entrust everything to you!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

There won’t be many rewards.
You won’t gain much fame.

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

However…
There are people out there still waiting and believing!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

I ask you to cooperate!
Believe in me! Don’t try to find a reason!


3 options
Leave it to me, bro! I’ll completely defeat you! My reward will be Taurus himself!
Taurus Mask expression happy.png

That’s the answer I expected, Brother!
Then, lend me your power!

Taurus Mask expression sad.png

O-oh! That’s the spirit!
But try to be gentle with me…!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Leave it to me! I’m pretty good at physical labor!
After all, I work as a removalist!

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

Huh, you don’t want me for that?
Whatever it is, I’ll absolutely return the favor to you!



Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

Wait a minute, I said you didn’t have to find a reason,
but… there is one!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

I, Taurus Mask, will be your reason!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Yeah, I can hear it,
the people in the venue are getting impatient.

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

So, I guess this is time.
You’ll be Taurus Mask’s rival.

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

I always bring a microphone with myself.
Leave the explanation to me.

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Are you nervous? Don’t worry!
You’ll be fine. Of course I have no basis to believe that!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

But you are my Brother.
So… I promise you this.

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

You’ll be hearing people chanting “Taurus Mask!”
before you realize it.

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

That will definitely cheer you up!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

If possible, if possible…
For our first performance, I wanted to form a tag team with you.

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

At least, a bit more tan just a helper…
I wish someone else were the villain!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Ok, then let’s go ahead!
When I give you the signal… jump out!


Wait for me!
People in the audience!


Now, it’s time for the hottest plate!
What you will see today will be kept burning in your memories!



1 option
Come on, I only need a few people…


Gunzou expression happy.png

Yo, Taurus Mask senpai!
I came to cheer for you!

Ashigara expression happy.png

Well, this place is great!
Everything is cheap, tasty and in big quantity! I like it!

Kyuuma expression embarrassed.png

Come on, Ashigara senpai!
I couldn’t eat barely anything!


1 option
There!


Arena

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Thanks for the applause, everyone!
However, I have an announcement to make!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

There is gonna be a modification to the schedule
for today’s match!

Ashigara expression masked.png

Wait wait wait wait wait waaaait!!!

Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

Eh?


Suddenly from right beside Taurus Mask,
someone unexpectedly slapped his back, throwing him to the ground.


Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

Huh? What? What’s going on?!

Ashigara expression masked.png

Gahahahaha!
This is payment for last time, Taurus Mask!

Taurus Mask expression blush.png

Waah!

Ashigara expression masked.png

Oi oi oi, what are you laughing at?
Is my face that funny?

Kyuuma expression embarrassed.png

It’s really bizarre to say the least.
Where did you pick that up?

Kyuuma expression embarrassed.png

Oh right, I’m just the assistant!
Please treat me well!

Gunzou expression masked.png

W-w-w-well then! Taurufufu!
You cucumber, l-l-let’s put an end to t-this!

Kyuuma expression embarrassed.png

But don’t chew on him! That would be a problem!

Kyuuma expression embarrassed.png

Remember to not be cruel to your senpai!
You are making him even more nervous!

Ashigara expression masked.png

We are just some passerby masked wrestlers!
Doskoi Mask and Rugby Mask!

Gunzou expression masked.png

G-get ready!
Ta-ta-taurus M-mask!

Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

Eh, uhm… right, let’s…

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

I mean!
Who on earth are you?!


1 option
That’s enough!


Ashigara expression masked.png

Hey, you bastard!
Aren’t you going to introduce yourself?!


1 option
My name is Taurus Mask 2!


Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

Taurus Mask… 2… ?

Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

I understand… I understand, Brother…!
Although I can’t see your face, your soul is shouting to me!


1 option
Let’s do it!


Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Oh oh! I got it, number 2!
We will make a tag team!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

Rather than a professional wrestling match,
this became a hero show, but whatever!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

Now, this will be the match I envisioned together!
Behold both of us, Taurus Mask!

Ashigara expression masked.png

Oh, no no no, come, Rugby Mask.
So you wanted us to be the villains, huh, [Player]?

Gunzou expression masked.png

Wasn’t that enough?!
Doskoi Mask senpai!

(Battle)

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

Bokuuuutsu!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

Bokuuuutsu!

Ashigara expression masked.png

Gouhutsu!!


Taurus Mask’s high flyer
threw Doskoi Mask to the ground.


Ashigara expression masked.png

W-w-w-which way?!


However, Doskoi mask got up immediately,
and started running towards his opponent, ramming into him.


Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

Gwah…!


This took him by surprise, and Taurus Mask
was thrown off against one of the posts.


Kyuuma expression embarrassed.png

Hey, wait a minute Ashi--, I mean Doskoi Mask senpai!
Pro wrestlers fight… like this?!

Ashigara expression masked.png

I’m beginning to get the knack of this!
Partner, now’s your turn, crush this villain!

Gunzou expression masked.png

Now’s my chance!
Gaaaahhh!!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

G-gwah…!

Kyuuma expression embarrassed.png

You too, Gun-- uh, Rugby Mask senpai?!

Gunzou expression masked.png

Hah, because he said he was the villain…
The honorable Rugby Mask will fight seriously!

Ashigara expression masked.png

Besides… [Player] told us.
We need to take this seriously rather than half-baked.

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

Guh…!

Gunzou expression masked.png

O-oh…?
W-we may have gone too far…!

Ashigara expression masked.png

Ah, what a shame!
Gaaahahahaha!

Gunzou expression masked.png

This makes me look like the villain…!

Taurus Mask expression angry.png

Damn… They didn’t go easy on me…
I was quickly overwhelmed…!

Taurus Mask expression sad.png

I have to stand up…!
Or else… I’ll lose this game…

Taurus Mask expression sad.png

But… My body… !
My whole body is in pain…


“… igh… ma…”


Suddenly.
Among the loud hustle, only for a second.


In a really soft voice.


There was a voice calling my name.


“… igh… Taurus Ma…”


As I’m opening slightly my eyes…
I could recognize the figure of a young boy.


“Fight… Taurus Mask…!”


That small voice was calling out for me.
And that small voice gradually got louder and louder.


He was grasping both his hands tightly.
Such a small body, but his voice was so loud.


Ah, that reminds me of my old self.


The hero was knocked down…
But this kid was still cheering for him, just like myself long ago.


…That’s right, I’m a hero.
At least, I’ll be the hero for that kid.


I know exactly what I must do.
Then, what are you doing that you are not getting up?


Yes, this is my dream as Taurus Mask.
I have been waiting for this for a long time.


“Fiiiight! Taurus Maaaask!”


Those words give me the power.
Those words give me the courage.


The hero always stands up.
Time and time again.


I will show this kid a miracle.
Yes, I want him to believe that miracles like these can happen.


Taurus Mask expression 4star icon.png

…Gah!!


Taurus Mask stood up.
Still shaking, he pointed to the skies.


With [Player] watching over him.
Everyone was staring at Taurus Mask.


That great wrestler that changed him a long time ago.
For a moment, his presence overlapped with Taurus Mask.


Taurus Mask expression 4star icon.png

Wooooooohh!!!


The roar of the ferocious bull reverberated all across the venue.


The new legend of Taurus Mask.
Today, a new episode starts.


Waiting Room

Taurus Mask expression blush.png

Owowow…
I’ll have to pay a visit to Mineaki sensei…

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Those intruders, I really wasn’t expecting them…
But as a result, it was a huge success!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

But… Who on earth were those guys?
Doskoi Mask and Rugby Mask.


3 options (same response)
Eh… Are you seriously asking that? You’re hopeless…


Taurus Mask expression blush.png

Oh, did I say something strange?
I couldn’t tell because of the masks.

Ashigara expression happy.png

Gaaaaaahahahaha!
That felt refreshing! It was some great exercise!

Kyuuma expression neutral.png

Here you have, Taurus Mask senpai.
This is an ointment from Mineaki sensei.

Gunzou expression sad.png

I got carried away…
I’m really sorry.

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

Ah, don’t worry about it Gunzou!
Everyone got really excited!

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

Why are you apologizing, though?
Were you Rugby Mask?

Gunzou expression surprised.png

Huh?!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Hah, no way! They were fantastic villains.
I want to fight with them again in the future.

Ashigara expression blush.png

Apart from [Player],
I didn’t mean to be a villain.

Kyuuma expression embarrassed.png

But, Taurus Mask senpai.
He really didn’t recognize us…

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Well, the game is over,
but the celebration must continue.

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

Hey Ashigara, let’s go eat.
Thie food in this place is delicious!

Ashigara expression neutral.png

Yes, I’m down!
I’ll eat everything in one go!

Gunzou expression happy.png

Well, Taurus senpai.
Great job out there! See you again at school!

Kyuuma expression embarrassed.png

Please, take a good night’s rest!
Well, if you excuse us.

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

…Thank you for everything, Brother.

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Even if we didn’t earn anything,
I think we got other kinds of rewards.

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

The cheers, the applause…
How was it, Brother?


3 options
It was awesome! It was alright. I can see myself wearing a mask again…!
Taurus Mask expression surprised.png

Awesome…
I see, awesome…!

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

Hahaha. Well then…
I think you recieved the best reward!

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

Hah, you really are frank!

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

…Many thanks.
You definitely saved me.

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

Oh, did something wake inside you?

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

In here there are never too many people!
You are welcome anytime, Brother!



Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Hey.
Can you see that, Brother?

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

That’s the line to take photos and signatures with the fans.
It’s getting really long.

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

And there isn’t only one for me.
There are two, for you and me.

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png


He got silent.
Taurus caressed his mask.


Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

... You listened to my wish.
Thank you for your help, [Player].

Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

You and I, as partners…
Thank you, [Player].

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

After all, you are the best partner I could hope for.
My Soul Brother!

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

Someday in the future…
I might be able to show you my true face.

Taurus Mask expression blush.png

W-why not now? Awawa!
... B-but, you see… H-here…


Taurus Mask’s face turned red and began to speak quickly.


Taurus Mask expression neutral.png

Well, that will be for another time!
Now, start smiling! It’s the basic of the basics for meeting fans!

Taurus Mask expression happy.png

Let’s go, Brother!


While holding their hands,
they rushed to meet the fans.


And again as a tag team
they marched forward, and the gong rang once more.
