Support level C

Joshua
Hey, I hear you're good
with a sword...▼
Marisa
Who are you?▼
Joshua
I'm Joshua.
And you?▼
Marisa
Marisa.▼
Joshua
It's a pleasure. By the
way, you ever hear this?▼
Marisa
Hear what?▼
Joshua
Well, I guess it was popular for
a while, way back when.▼
But when two swordsmen met on the
battlefield--even allied swordsmen--▼
they would duel it out to test one
another's worth with the blade.▼
So what do you say? Don't you think
it's time to revive this tradition?▼
Marisa
...
You want me to kill you?▼
Joshua
No, no, no. I'm not saying we have
to fight to the death!▼
It's just a simple test of skill.▼
Marisa
...Fine. As long as I get a chance
to whet my blade's appetite.▼
Joshua
Er... Great! Now, what say we
make this more interesting?▼
If I win, you owe me, and
if you win, then I owe you.▼
Marisa
Owe me what?▼
Joshua
...I'm not quite sure yet.▼
How about... Ah, yes.
how about you owe me a favor.▼
Marisa
I'm not following you.▼
Joshua
No?▼
Marisa
But it doesn't matter. I'm
not going to lose to you.▼
Joshua
Now you're talking.▼
Marisa
Then let's get started.▼
Joshua
Whoa! Hold your horses! Where's the
hurry? Let's do this another day.▼
After all, I like to savor the
anticipation a little bit.▼
Marisa
I don't get it,
but fine.▼
Joshua
Great! We're all set then.▼
Next time we meet, we
cross swords. Deal?▼
Marisa
...▼
There's nothing to anticipate.
You're simply going to lose.▼
Joshua
Well, I don't know about that.▼
See you later. I'm looking
forward to it.▼
Marisa
Same here.▼

Support level B

Joshua
Oh... Tsk!▼
Marisa
...!▼
Joshua
Dang...!
There!!▼
Marisa
Ha!
...▼
Joshua
Whew... After a match like that,
I can be happy with a tie!▼
Marisa
......▼
Joshua
You're better than I thought.▼
Marisa
You're not too bad yourself.▼
Joshua
Heh... Thanks.▼
But remember, I was at a slight
disadvantage, so...▼
Marisa
I must admit, I did hold you at
a slight disadvantage.▼
However, we are closely matched,
despite our incompatible styles.▼
I simply couldn't land a decisive
blow. But it was all worthwhile.▼
After all, I've learned, and that
is worth far more than any wager.▼
Joshua
I see.
You're a quick one, aren't you?▼
How did you get that good?▼
Marisa
Fighting is all I have.▼
Joshua
You live for the sword, eh?▼
I prefer rolling the dice to
swinging the sword, you know?▼
Marisa
...Why is that?▼
Joshua
Whew...▼
I thought you'd never ask.▼
You're asking how I got hooked
on gambling, right?▼
Let me see... There's not
much to tell.▼
I guess by the time I realized it,
it was already too late.▼
I'd grown bored of everything
before I discovered gambling.▼
But then I saw it--gambling was
like life, in short little bursts.▼
Life itself is just one big gamble!
That's how I see things.▼
Marisa
I see.
...▼
I don't know anything about
gambling, but it was a good duel.▼
We must try this again soon.▼
Joshua
What, with no wager? That
doesn't sound very fun.▼
Marisa
Suit yourself.▼
Joshua
You mean that? Then we'll
have another bet.▼
I'll win next time.
See you later.▼
Marisa
See you.▼

Support level A

Joshua
There!▼
Marisa
Ho!▼
Joshua
......
How's this?▼
Marisa
Oof...▼
Joshua
Whew...
Looks like I won this time.▼
Marisa
......
I made a mistake.▼
Joshua
No, you're just having a bad day.▼
And it's not like I had a
decisive victory this time.▼
I'd say we're still just
about even.▼
Marisa
All that matters is that
I didn't win.▼
You won the bet. What
do you want me to do?▼
Joshua
Oh, you remembered our last bet!
That makes me happy.▼
All right, here goes...▼
Marisa
......▼
Joshua
I want you to be my partner
for a while...▼
How's that sound?▼
Marisa
What?
Your partner?▼
Joshua
Don't get the wrong idea. I just meant
for training. And gambling.▼
Marisa
So, nothing would change...▼
Joshua
Well, I suppose, but there's still
a point to it all.▼
Marisa
What's that?▼
Joshua
If I train with you, I'm going
to become a better swordsman.▼
And if we train together, maybe
we'll each learn something.▼
Marisa
I could ask nothing better.▼
Joshua
And there's something that I want to
do soon when the war is over.▼
It's something that can't be done
in a single day or overnight.▼
You could probably call this the
biggest gamble of my entire life.▼
I'm going to have to hone my skills,
and I'll need someone to help me.▼
What do you say, Marisa?
Won't you lend me a hand?▼
Marisa
I'm good for fighting, and
not much else.▼
Joshua
You think? I doubt that's true.▼
Well, think about it.▼
Marisa
...I'll do it.▼
Joshua
I know this is a gamble, but...
gambling is my hobby.▼
Marisa
I see that.▼
Joshua
Well, don't let me down.▼
Marisa
I won't. But try to keep it▼
interesting, all right?
Joshua
Heh. Then I'll do my best to
keep you entertained.▼
And remember what I said...
Life is a gamble.▼
You never know what'll happen.▼
But don't worry, I'm sure you
won't be bored.▼
Besides, how often do you meet
someone you can spar with?▼
Not to mention someone who
can actually beat you!▼
Marisa
I'll win next time, though.▼
Joshua
That's the spirit, Marisa.▼
