ODL – Chapter 83 – Rinjou Shizuka Doesn’t Want to Move


Poshu~” (Shizuka)

Shizuka, who had just been squeezed by the two of them, stood there weakly. She looked just like a certain boxer who had turned completely pale after a match. With Shizuka as their companion, Hiyorin and Mafuyu raised their glasses with satisfied expressions.

“Well then… Cheers.” (Hiyori)

“Thank you for your hard work.” (Mafuyu)

The glasses *clinked* with a satisfying sound, signifying the glorious victory of the “naturally weight gain” faction.

“Well, um, what should we do then? Neither of you have running gear, right?” (Souma)

“I don’t have any. What about Shizuka?” (Mafuyu)

“I… I don’t want to go.” (Shizuka)

Shizuka muttered, her shoulders slumping as if she were a robot with a dead battery.

…After some discussion, things somehow ended up with Shizuka and Mafuyu-chan joining us for the morning run. Shizuka, who was a shut-in, night owl, and already naturally thin, resisted until the end. However, pressured by the two girls around her, she eventually gave in, nodding her head with an air of resignation.

“I don’t want to move… I became a VTuber so I wouldn’t have to move…” (Shizuka)

The origin story of my oshi VTuber has been revealed. While It might sound quite cliché and could be written off as a joke, looking at her daily life, this statement is probably true.

…I never would have guessed that Ette-sama was born for such a reason. On the one hand, I was happy to know about this, on the other hand, I would rather not know.

“Well, well, it’s fine. It’ll be fun if we all run together, right?” (Hiyori)

Hiyorin, who was in a slightly better mood than usual, gently patted Shizuka’s head, as if soothing a child. I wondered if I’d get a pat too if I complained, but, of course, I didn’t say that out loud.

Shizuka seemed genuinely reluctant to participate and looked dejected without even glancing at Hiyorin. Seeing her in this state, it made me feel sorry for her, and I unintentionally extended an offer of help.

“Shizuka, do you really dislike it that much?” (Souma)

“Yeah…” (Shizuka)

“I see… I think it’ll be fine if you don’t come. You have late-night streams and stuff, right? I think it would be bad if we let this affect your job.” (Souma)

With that said, I looked around at the two, and unsurprisingly, there were no strong objections once work was brought up. Judging from her usual laziness, I was pretty sure it wouldn’t affect her work, and going running might even improve her health, but I decided to keep that to myself.

“Isn’t that great, Shizuka? You don’t have to join. Come on, stop sulking, and let’s just have a drink, okay?” (Souma)

“Y-yeah… Thanks.” (Shizuka)

I pushed the menu on her a bit forcefully, and Shizuka shyly offered a smile. How cute.

“Aww, that’s too bad. I wanted to run with Shizuka-chan.” (Hiyori)

“I hope Shizuka’s metabolism suddenly changes and she gains weight… I hope Shizuka’s metabolism suddenly changes and she gains weight…” (Mafuyu)

“Pfff!” (Souma)

Mafuyu-chan clasped her hands together in prayer, and I couldn’t help but burst into laughter at the sight which was so different from her usual character. It seems that having a high metabolism is quite enviable.

“Well… By the way, Shizuka, I remember you played Ringfit Adventure1 in one of your streams, right? Was it really that bad?” (Souma)

I recalled how Ette-sama had done squats in a livestream while looking like she was about to collapse. She had given up at such an early level that was impossible to not clear for an average person and had gained a reputation for being frail due to that incident. At the time, I thought that having such low stamina was weird, and now that I had gotten to know Shizuka, I couldn’t help but think that it made sense. Her lack of exercise was already deeply ingrained into her.

Shizuka’s shoulders twitched, and she hunched her shoulders like a turtle when she heard the word “Ringfit Adventure”.

“I absolutely won’t do it, okay?! I don’t want to remember doing that stream anymore!” (Shizuka)

“Is it really that bad?” (Souma)

“It was hell! I even had thoughts about throwing away my 3D model if it meant going through something that painful.” (Shizuka)

“Oh, right, that was the 3D model unveiling event.” (Souma)

In the world of VTubers, there are mainly 2D and 3D models, with 3D models usually being created later. While 2D models can generally only handle simple movements of the upper body, 3D models can precisely reflect full-body movements, allowing for various unique streams.

When a 3D model is created, it’s customary to hold a livestream event dedicated to “3D model unveiling” where the VTuber sings, dances, and shows off movement which they normally couldn’t have done without them. However, for some reason, Ette-sama’s theme was centered around Ringfit Adventure. I wonder if she did something to upset the management team.

“The comments got a bit naughty… it was really embarrassing.” (Shizuka)

“I-Is that so… It must have been tough.” (Souma)

I vividly recall the moment when Ette-sama did the splits during the warm-up exercises, and comments like “erotic” appeared.

……Well, there’s no helping it, it really was a bit on the naughty side.


TL Notes:

Thanks for reading!

“I became a VTuber so I don’t have to move” LOL. I wonder if that’s how streamers and youtubers feel in general.

Also apparently footnotes have been broken for a while and I only just noticed it. Anyways I fixed it so now it actually redirects you below.


Footnote:

  1. If you don’t rmb, this is a nintendo switch game that has a giant ring which you exercise with… I think.
