三ツ星カラーズ — Week 2 Discussion (ABBC)

Since chapter one has been split into two weeks, here is a summary of week one’s material.

Summary for Week 1

The chapter opens with Yui running through Ueno distract, and to the hidden away hideout where the group Colors gathers. She bursts in, calling out that she has big news.

Sacchan responds with a joke, then changes the subject to a pair of toy glasses she found in the hideout.

Yui steers the conversation back to her big news: she found a cat that looks like a panda. Sacchan releases the spring-loaded eyes of the toy glasses, prompting Yui to tell her–and Kotoha–to take it seriously.

However, Sacchan disagrees that Yui’s finding is worth the attention of their group, Colors, whose mission is to protect the peace of their neighborhood. She asks Yui, leader of the group, if there isn’t a much bigger case.

Met with insistence from Yui about the panda-like cat, Sacchan asks Yui to draw what she saw. Upon seeing the drawing, Sacchan realizes that what Yui saw is a monster. Yui thinks the cat is great, but Sacchan sees things differently.

When Kotoha sees the drawing, she asks if they’ll be killing it. Yui won’t allow that, even though Kotoha thinks monsters need to be beaten to death. Sacchan suggests they can capture it instead, to which Yui agrees.

The trio visits the nearby police box, where Officer Saitou keeps an eye on things. Looking over the drawing, he says he doesn’t know anything about it, then admonishes the children for trying to get the police to help with their play-hero games.

Kotoha says they’re not playing, and Sacchan accuses Saitou of being a know-nothing.

Saitou snaps at the kids, saying he doesn’t have time to play their games with them. While two of the girls are unfazed, Yui tearfully apologizes. Saitou recalls that she’s the good one of the group, which makes her hard for him to deal with. He gives up, and tells that girls that while he doesn’t know anything about a monster, he does have some information about a cat that looks like a panda.

Apparently, per Saitou, the cat is a thief. Lately, there have been an increasing number of reports of a panda-like cat snatching things. If the cat were caught, Saitou tells the girls, then maybe the peace of the district will have been protected.

With this information, Yui realizes that a thief cat really is a big case. Sacchan suggests they begin their search on the shopping street. Saitou is thanked for his troubles, and Colors is off to find the panda-like thief cat.
