I like food. I like eating. And I don't want to deprive myself of good food.

=== World from an underdog's perspective ===

Now I know what you're thinking. What's the point in all of this?

You're just acting like a pack of wild animals fighting over some small boxes of bento that probably doesn't even fill you up. What a waste of time and effort. Heck, you could of avoided all this and just bought them straight away before all of the commotion began. But I guess that's the naive, dull reasoning from a person who never been hunting in their entire life. Sure, you can go ahead with your safe method and totally ignore my suggestion but just hear me out, yeah?

Don't you ever get bored of just doing that?

I mean, always being on the safe side. Where's the thrill in just buying your meal when you could be out there, fighting amongst the pack of wolves as you try to claim your rightful prize! And at the end of the brawl, the taste of the prize- Ho boy, where to even begin with that! Ever tasted sweet victory? Lemme tell ya, it's the most wondrous, spectacular, magnificent, marvellous- all of them adjectives you can think of and it'll still not be enough to describe how great victory tastes!

But what would someone like me know about victory. Yeah, I know, every time I fight for it in the aisles of the supermarket, I get my taints handed to me. I’m just a frog at the bottom of the well. An underdog if you will.

Sure, I’ll keep continuing to fight for it and lose but you know what; it’s not always about the food. It’s about the thrill of a battle. Living on the wild edge and clashing heads with other combatants. Getting the adrenaline pumping and freeing our animalistic instinct which have been kept dormant all the way back to our primitive era.

I’m exaggerating it a bit too much, huh? Still the same barbaric free-for-all brawl-fest to you? I don’t know how else to convince you but I’ll just ask you this one more time.

Are you really content with your life just being normal?

Looks like it’s about the start, I can hear their stomachs howling a mile away! Better get going or else their going be all gone like hotcakes.

Yeah, I know. What’s the point with me going anyways? I’m still gonna lose either way. But, at some point I’m gonna win somehow, someway; and I’m gonna savour that victory that I’ve been yearning for ever since I joined in this fight.

This underdog is gonna go for it. Step up or go home.

=== I. Introduction (Appetizer) ===

From the creators who brought you "Drawings Anyone?" and "Wishlist 2011", full_metal_hiroshima production presents yet another RP.

Sup guys, hiroshima_X here (or hiro for short) bringing to you guys Ben-to RP: Taking Ben-to Meals to the Next Level. It's been a while since I've RP'd and I'm a way too rusty. Even though I tried to start a One Piece RP before on the thread, I feel that I was completely plagiarizing the creator's work entirely and felt really bad about it. And besides the guilt, I've also felt that it was already complete and didn't need to be revived at all. You know, it's one of those "drop it and leave it alone" things. Not to mention, not everyone on the forum (my assumptions here) watches or reads One Piece to grasp the basic understanding of the world and it's mechanics.

So yeah, my inspiration for bringing about this RP is simple. Read the prologue, Ben-to: Road to Witch manga over at mangareader, and was intrigued about the premises. I, then, checked out the anime and realized that the whole series had won me over after half an episode of Episode 1. People fighting over half-priced ben-tos at the supermarket? Sounds like it's an easy setting for an RP right?

Also, I'm pretty sure people follow here on the forum since most of our members are in tune with the new anime for this season. So heck, why not create it?

For those who are interested in Ben-to, please join the RP. For those who are unfamiliar with the series yet have an interest in participating in RP, please read on!


=== II. What's Ben-to? (Entree) ===

Ben-to is a light novel series, created by the writer Asaura and the illustrator Kaito Shibano. The manga, Ben-to: Road to Witch, came out in Febraury 2008 and was released under Shueisha as of July 2011. The anime for the series began it's production under David Production and began airing in October 2011.

The plot revolves around Yo Sato, the main protagonist, who was drawn into the world of fighting over ben-to when he innocently reached out for a half-priced bento only to get his taint handed to him by the Ice Witch. Waking up on the supermarket floor, he soon learns that attaining a half-priced bento meal means having to be drawn into a all-out battle frenzy with other bento-craving students.

Still getting his taint handed to him yet again by the Ice Witch, he receives an invitation by her to join the Half-Priced Food Lovers Club in order to be trained so that he may be able to compete in these kind of events. Also the Ice Witch's real name is Sen Yarizui (the girl in the image above).

If Ben-to could be summarized in just a few words, it's basically people fighting over half-priced ben-to.

=== III. Rules and Terminologies (Lighter Course) ===

Now we move onto the lighter course of the meal, Rules and Terminologies. The rules are simple:

1. Respect everyone and all those who are participating in his RP. Do not attempt to 'force' or 'bully' a writer to do simple and quick paragraph for the sake of moving the story along. The writers will write when they can. Please bear some patience about this.

2. All writing must be in novel format. No script writing please as they will not be accepted.

3. Pretty sure everyone's aware of the Mary Sue or Gary Stu policy. They tend to irritate writers when it comes to their perfection to the point where's it's no fun to RP.

4. If you have any ideas that you want to implement in the RP, I'd ask that you run it through me. PM me on the forum or via the chatbox on the main forum page.

5. All discussion takes place here in this topic. Should anything be discussed by other means of communication that directly affects the other writers, I must ask that any outcome be presented here.

6. Have fun.

---

And now we get a run-through of the terminologies. Don't worry, there's only a limited amount of definitions here and these vocabulary will be used frequently in the RP. Make sure to brush up on them first so that you get the general idea.


God of Discounts: A employee, employer or proprietor of the store. The ones who discounts the bento meals and the ones who help those who have injured in the aftermath of the brawl.

Wolves: The main brawlers when it comes to fighting over half-priced bento meals. Wolves have honor and respect to one another and the God of Discounts. They do not strike at the ben-to boxes when the God of Discount is placing the discount tags on the box nor do there cause any trouble when the God of Discounts is within the vicinity. Once the God of Discounts has vacanted the premises, all chaos ensue as the brawlers fight amongst themselves in an effort to attain the half-priced bento meals. However, once a wolf grabs a bento meal, they cannot be attacked by others.

Wolves dislike dishonorable methods and will not tolerate them such as the Pigs/Boars. Wolves tend to hunt and fight alone but may train others in order for their students to compete in battle.

Dogs: If the wolves are considered pros, then dogs are considered as nubs in MMORPG terms. Unaware of how the mechanics of the battle works and are usually taken out pretty easily. Dogs may also refer to those who are non-combatants.

Gundogs: Above dogs but a rank below wolves, they are the one who work in groups to attain half-priced bentos.

Pigs/Boars: MMORPG terms, they would be the hackers or the cheaters. The lowest of the low. Pigs/Boars use underhanded tricks and are disliked by the wolves. Tricks such as harassing the God of Discount into marking down the bento boxes or hording every single bento that's for sale are some of the common action these people use. Not really fair, right?


And there you have it, the terminologies that's expected to be in the RP.

(To be continued. Please do not post anything till it's finished)

=== IV. The part where you come in (Main Course) ===

First off I'd like to start off without using any characters in the canon anime/manga. One, anime still continuing and if the canon story takes a sudden turn and omits characters that we implemented in the RP, that would be very awkward.

Two, just like the One Piece RP I tried to establish, if we we're going to have the canon characters, it'll just be us following them around. And chances are, during the bento fights, none of us are gonna win or claim any bento boxes.

Then again, you could make reference to them without the canon characters actually being there. Well whatever floats your boat.

Anyways, it'll start out with a everyone doing whatever they want before the half-priced bento event starts at the supermarket. You can tell your story beforehand before the event happens. Your character could be harassing and flipping female student's skimpy skirts, studying at the library, joining in a club activity, smoking outside the block or being told off at the teacher's lounge about something. Whatever you can think of doing with your character, go for it.

But the supermarket event starts around 7:30 pm.

Also, you guys get the choice of picking a supermarket to raid for the bento meals after the first raid. Each supermarket will put up a bento meal that has an honor seal on it and you guys get to pick which supermarket to go for.

I'll be working on the blueprints/map for the interior design of the supermarket so that describing the location of the store will be easier.

As for the city in Japan where the RP is going to be set, I'm open to suggestions.

=== V. Character Sheet (Dessert Course) ===

Wanna take part in the bento brawl bonanza? Well go on ahead, place your character in for submission. I'll be more than happy to go though you character and will give you the verdict based on the given information.

Once again, please aim for quality over quantity. Both would be great but please keep this in advice in mind. As for a template, please look below. You may add some stuff that haven't been mention in the template.

Name: (Your character gotta have a name. How else are others gonna call them? Insults? Hey You? Also nickname as well as "Nom de Guerre" go here as well)
Age: (Preferably in high school but hey, if you wanna have a character who's outside of that age bracket, run it through me yeah?)
Gender: (Male, Female or Hermaphrodite? Please don't pick hermaphrodite, I was just kidding)
Appearance: (What's the character's appearance like. Write nothing here and I'll forcefully assign an appearance that you won't like and you'll have to keep it. That wouldn't be fair right so please write something sufficient enough to pass as an appearance)
Personality: (Everyone has a personality and chances are that your character is not one of them people who have a personality that equivalent to a cardboard box)
Background: (So what's their history about? Is it exciting, tragic or just average?)
Talents: (Everyone has a talent whether they may be spectacular or just plain ol' mediocre. Fighting style also comes under here as well)
Notes: (Have I forgotten anything to put down in the template. Fear not, the notes section will help! Anything else that you want to put down, go right on ahead)

=== VI. Afterthoughts (Wine and Cheese Course) ===

Ho-boy, that's quite a read there and chances are, no one was bothered to read everything except the main bits of the RP. Well, I think I covered everything there is to be said in a concise manner, right? If you feel that I've missed something or made a mistake, do contact me on the forum via PM, the chatbox or just on the discussion board here. Also, if you have any ideas that you want to implement in the RP, go ahead and ask.

I'll post the actual RP topic once I get a sufficient amount of sign-ups etc.

And without further ado, you may begin posting your sign-ups or queries.

Kind regards,

hiroshima_X
