Shipping Nico x Maki so hard!

「収束法《ルール・ナンバー・10》」 (Shuusokuhou “Ruuru Nanbaa 10”)
“Rule Number 10″
A game within a game within a game. Kuuhaku’s target is never the one in front of them, but them, their next opponent, and everything else standing between them and the game against Tet. Long live the Elkian Federation!

「友達になってください。」 (Tomodachi ni Nattekudasai.)
“Will You Be My Friend?”
