Behind the scenes, this is another story that depicts the lives of the rivals.
Kaburiel's battle records

Shiraishi: All right! Kaburiel has finally won four times in a row!! A flawless attack! Nn, ecstasy!

text box: On the scene at the nation-wide, "my Kabu-chan is the best" cup finals--

text above Shiraishi: Yeaaah! Special beetle!! (T/N: beetle = kabutomushi. Is it just me, or does the choice of "beetle" with its ending in "shi" have anything to do with mirroring "ekusutashi" for ecstasy?)

Sanada: Idiot. What are you doing...!!

Sanada: Like I'm going to let you fall on that side!!

Sanada: Ah.

Announcer: Fuurinkazan, the representative for Kanagawa... got blown away with its opponent by its owner's breathing! Disqualified!

Zaizen: By his breathing... how stupid.

  • Kieeeee!*

Chitose: There sure are people of all kinds at nationals.

Shiraishi: Come, Kaburiel. It's finally the final match...if it's you, you'll be able to win.

?: Eh...

Announcer: The final match is King of Satan versus--

?: What the, isn't that against the rules!?

Shiraishi: Y-You are...!?

Atobe: Be awed by the sight of my insect!

Side Shitenhouji 1 Kaburiel's Battle Records

In volume 9's "Sonopuri", instead of a story set in the past, you drew a story set in the future for the first time, right?

Konomi: That's right. If we were to place when this Shiraishi story happens, this is a follow-up of what occurs in the official fanbook PairPuri vol 2 "Private no Oujisama Jitaku3 Freeloader in the Shiraishi Household" that takes place after the end of the nationals tournament in summer. This time's "Sonopuri" follows the summer adventures of the Shiraishi and Kaburiel that we met in "PairPuri". Actually, this story was one that I wanted to use as a side story in Square Jump like "Yakiniku no Oujisama". However, to use it, I would have needed to separate them into selected middle

schoolers and selected high schoolers for the U-17. To get to that point would have cost time, so I replanned this as a 3-pager for "Sonopuri". In actuality, I would have liked to have characters like Higa's Chinen and various other characters battle it out in a fierce battle with the beetles of their pride in the final tournament of a "nation-wide 'my Kabu-chan is the best' cup".

Mixing in with the elementary kids, Sanada and Atobe also participate!!

Konomi:For this time's "Sonopuri", out of all the possible characters, I wanted to try having the rivals, Rikkai's Sanada and Hyoutei's Atobe, show up. The fact that Sanada has a pet beetle named Fuurinkazan and the fact that he is so seriously battling against his elementary school kid opponent are both strange. Even the match results ended with him self-exploding from putting too much into the match, blowing Fuurinkazan away with his breathing (laughs). This time's Sanada is completely a laughing stock. And then, the Shiraishi-Kaburiel team's final opponent is the Atobe-King of Satan team that shows up with the decisive line "Be awed by the sight of my insect". King of Satan is an Atobe-only beetle based off of the fantastical beetle, Satanas Beetle, by adding two horns to it. It doesn't actually exist, so please don't go searching for it. By the way, Atobe's decisive line is also a play on his specialty, "Insight". I bet all of you noticed this while reading.

Konomi-sensei's bold predictions of the outcome of the final battle

You haven't drawn the results of the final match, but who do you think will win?

Konomi: I want to draw the continuation, so I don't want to say, but I think Kaburiel would win. Because it eats jelly that has a lot of protein. With a fierce offense and defense all the way to the end, King of Satan will continue standing even while losing consciousness. Why? Because it's Atobe's beetle. Even while losing consciousness, it will still reign over the battlefield.

{Secret) Behind the scenes setup

Sponsered by "Monthly Beetle"! Super popular event corner.

Please take a closer look at the event name! It actually appeared in PairPuri vol 2. According to Konomi-sensei, as a fan of "Monthly Beetle", Shiraishi read this magazine and then decided to enter the tournament.

(the magazine held in Yukari's hand says "my Kabu-chan is the best!")

(Secret) Behind the scenes setup

Sanada's beetle, Fuurinkazan, was caught and given to him by his nephew, Sasuke.

Sasuke: Well you are my uncle, and that means you’re old…Genichirou.

Sasuke, who showed up in PairPuri vol 1 Jitaku2 Morning in the House of Sanada, would be surprised for sure if he found out the results of the match.
