Oh, you're just giving this to me? You're totally awesome, man! You want my autograph in exchange?

I'm not even afraid anymore. Now I'm just pissed off.
Why?! Why is this happening to me?! This isn't fair, man! I mean, am I wrong?
Oh, um... Yeah, it really isn't.
Right?! Totally unfair. Ultra unfair! Just like having to shave my head right before every baseball game!
Well I mean... you choose to do that, right?
C'mon man! Are *you* against me now too!? I didn't even wanna play! But the coach and all the teachers begged me, so I did! And then they made me shave my head, just cuz it's "tradition." How's that fair?!
You really hate baseball that much, huh...?
Damn straight I do! Who has fun running around on a dusty field for three hours!?
But... for baseball players, the field is like a sacred ground, isn't it?
But it's so not cool! Spending all that time at practice, getting covered in sweat and dirt...
It's just baseball, right? It's easy! Who needs to practice!?
I think the gods picked the wrong person to bless with that much talent...
Still...I gotta admit, baseball wasn't all bad. I did have a few things going for it...
Yeah, right? Like the feeling of camaraderie between you and your teammates!
Nah, nothin' like that! I can't stand being around a bunch of sweaty guys. So totally uncool!
Then...what did you like about it?
Well, I hate studying, right? But I still got into this super fancy school on a sports scholarship. As long as I kept playing, I never had to study! And besides that...
It made me super popular with the ladies! Booya! Ya jealous? I got to third base in more ways than one, if ya know what I'm sayin'! ...Just kidding!
Heh-heh. I got plenty more where that came from! I'll tell ya more it next time. Anyway, let's hang out again sometime! Talking to you helps keep my mind off this place...
With a smile on his face and a spring in his step, Leon strolled away. I'm not really sure why, but I guess Leon likes hanging out with me...

Makoto, my friend! Listen, I wanted to ask you something...
Huh? What's up?
Well, I wanna start up a band, right? I was wondering if you know anyone who's good at writing music.
Oh, but nobody too popular! I don't want anyone to overshadow my own popularity as the lead singer.
You're serious about becoming a musical, huh?
Absolutely! And I don't wanna be a George, ya know? Gotta get that Paul action! 
Speaking of which, what kind of music do you want to make?
What if I said I wanted to be like the The Damned, The Clash, The Sex Pistols. 
So he mentioned The Damned, The Clash, and The Sex Pistols... Those are all...
Are those...heavy metal bands?
Huh. Well, that's kind of a disappointment. I mean I don't exactly hate metal or anything but... ...I mean, there's so many sub-genres! Too hard to get noticed, man. No thanks. But no, none of the bands I mentioned are heavy metal.
Are they...pop groups?
Oh my god, don't tell me you don't know anything about music! Ugh you're helpless. Okay, here's a hint! It's NOT the sound of blowing a tire!
Huh? What does a tire have to do with music...?
Don't worry about it, it's just a metaphor! Do you seriously not know what I'm trying to say?
Damn straight! My plan is to conquer the world with punk!
Cuz I mean...when it comes to punk, it doesn't really matter if you can actually play or not.
I'm...not sure how many punk bands would agree with that.
Anyway, by the time I got to this school, I'd already decided I was gonna quit baseball. I was just gonna use it as a stepping stone once I got into Hope's Peak to propel me to stardom...
I was gonna use my time here to become the Ultimate Musician!
...That dream's dead now, though. I came here chasing a dream, but I never imagined it'd turn into such a nightmare...
Dammit...! I have to do it! I have to become a famous musician!
Stop screwing with me, world! Give me back my youth! Give me back my dreams!
So Leon did have a dream. But it had nothing to do with baseball... He was never really serious about baseball, but I can't say I blame him for what he did.
I...I swear to god, I have to do it! Then that girl at the hair salon will go out with me!
Oh yeah, she told me she only dates musicians.
Her face is only okay, but she's got a smokin' hot body. I gotta get me some of that!
That's...not the real reason you want to do all that, is it?
What better reason is there!? The whole point of becoming a musician is to be popular, right?
Speaking of which, do you know what kind of guy Sayaka's into? Is she into musicians? Or maybe actors? Maybe I should become an actor!
I feel like I'm starting to understand Leon a little better...

Hey, Makoto. I have something to tell you, but...it's kind of a secret. Could you, uh, come to my room?
Anyway, I'll be waiting!
I wonder why Leon suddenly invited me to his room like that...
I did what Leon asked and headed to his room right away.
Welcome to the room of a future superstar!
So what's up? You said you had a secret or something?
Well, okay, it's like...
Let's play baseball!
Kidding, kidding! That was a joke. Super joke! I hate baseball, remember? ...
Wait...it sounds like it *wasn't* a joke.
Leon, do you...want to start playing baseball again?
Wh-What are you talking about!? Don't be stupid...! How many times have I told you how much I totally hate baseball!? I, like, don't like it at all!
...is what I thought. But actually... This is the longest I've ever gone without playing, ya know? I mean, I was so good, they forced me to play like, all the time.
And being away from the game for so long has made you realize how you really feel?
Dammit! It's like mind control! Baseball brainwashed me! But fine, whatever! I just wanna throw the ball around a little! But I can't play baseball by myself!
Ghhh... I never shoulda come to this school!
If what's happening to us really is some kinda school event thing, then when it's all over...
...I think I'm gonna drop out and go back to my old school. Maybe my team won't want me back, but all I can do is beg for their forgiveness and hope for the best.
I-I don't think you have to worry about that. I'm sure they'll be happy to have you back. If you just show them how you really feel about baseball, how you're willing to go to practice and-
Hell no! No way! I really, seriously hate practice! I don't need practice! I just wanna play the game! Even an exhibition game or whatever!
O-Oh... Well...I'm sure it'll all work out somehow.
Yeah, they can't just drop someone as good as me! I'm sure they'll forgive me no problem! I mean it's me, right!? I'm the up-and-coming Koshien Stadium Superstar!  Hehehe! You're gonna be there rooting for me, right!?
I don't think he's learned his lesson. But still...I think it's impossible for me to hate him.
He and I talked about so much together. Have I finally met the real Leon...? I think Leon and I havecome to understand each othera lot better...
