Superior Defender World Series|
5. Zakobusshi Hour
The Kobuki was a restaurant built in the land of Ark, not too far away from the newly built Ark baseball diamond. Not only did it boast of having the best sushi served, but the best singers on karaoke night. Currently, the restaurant was filled with mostly Musha Gundams, nobusshi, and Zakobusshi. The only customers that were not of Ark descent were Captain Gundam, Shute, and his family. After getting a table, the Neotopians met up Bakunetsumaru and Genkimaru, both who still a little annoyed at the outcome of the ballgame.
“I don’t see why it’s such a big deal,” Keiko said, rocking Nana in her arms- Ark had yet to invent baby seats. “It’s just a game.”
“That’s not it, Ms. Keiko” Bakunetsumaru said, “I can take an honorable defeat as well as any Gundam. What’s bugs me is the manner in which the Dark Axis won- they cheated, I know they did!”
Genkimaru didn’t say anything, as he and Nana were apparently having a staring contest. And Nana was winning. Mark noticed this. “You never saw a baby before?” He asked.
“Huh?” Genkimaru said, just noticing Mark. “No, not- heyyyy, we’ve met before!” Shute, Captain, Bakunetsu, and Keiko turned their heads- even Nana looked curious.
“Uhm, no we haven’t,” Mark said. Anyone listening reeaaal closely could juuust make out the nervousness in the adult male’s voice.
“We have, we have! I know it!” Genkimaru insisted. Mark, for reasons unknown, would have broken out in a cold sweat if three voices hadn't inchimed from the karaoke stage.
The ZakoZako Hour hosts found themselves in an ambush as three Zakobusshi lept down from the ceiling and kicked them offstage, snatching their microphones. One Zako sailed out an open window. Another crashed into a couple playing Go. The third landed in front of Shute’s family’s table.
“Are you okay!” Shute asked.
“Does this always happen?” Asked Keiko, shocked.
“Sometimes there’s gunplay…zako.” The spiral-eyed zako moaned.
Up onstage, the Zakobusshi got down to business.
“Welcome, everyone, to the Zakobusshi Hour,” Red Mic Zakobusshi announced, “Today’s meeting is all about-“ The othe Zakobusshi joined in, “The ranking system of the SD World Series!”
“How does the ranking system of the World Series work, Busshi? If it’s like a tournament, why should there be a game between the losing teams?” Asked Yellow Mic.
“Let me explain,” Answered Blue Mic, setting up a chart for all to see. “The winners of the first two games go on to the Finals, BUT, the losing teams play each other in order to decide the third place team, sort of like an elimination match. Get it?”
“Hmm,” Puzzled Red Mic, “So, Whoever wins the finals is the absolute winner, the loser gets second place, and the winner of the elimination game gets third, busshi?”
“That’s right, busshi.”
“I would like to go into it more-“
“But it’s karaoke night!” The other two answered.
“Anyway everyone, for the future of the World Series-“
Zakobusshi fight! YEAH!”
