Two members of the Umineko Shougyou high-school softball team stood at a window and gazed at a warm heavy spring rainfall.
"How long will the rain last?" one player asked.
"This is the rainy season," the other player said. "It could be WEEKS."
"I don't know how the softball team ever completes spring training," the first player said. "Do you think we joined the wrong club?"
As if on cue, the swim team walked past the window in their swimsuits. Several of the girls were dancing and laughing in the rain.
"Yes," the second player said, "and for multiple reasons."
