The Kacho's Skills Have Actually Improved?
Congratulations on the 15th anniversary of Game Center CX! You've had many hard challenges in recent seasons, haven't you? Like Chou Aniki (Episodes 220-221)
(Arino) Hard? As in difficult? Well my techniques have improved, after all! (Laughs)
The ADs said that you've been keeping a good eye on enemies lately. They even say that you're getting better at shoot'em ups, which you're known to be not very good at.
(Arino) I get complimented on that from the youngest person on the production staff. I wonder if it's because I've been backing off when it's time to back off, since my feelings of not wanting to die have been coming out.
