    This... is a difficult choice. We can exclude the Former President. He'll be influential yes, but we've rejected his request once already and there's no great ties or relations between us.
    On the other hand Mass Media Club president and Kotoka. Weighing the pros and cons, choose Kotoka. Ch 3.3 states MMC doesn't have any VIP members, so choosing MMC Prez isn't that advantageous though it might lead to better relations with the club. Choosing Kotoka however leads to a better relation with your family and any other aspiring idols in Shuichin. Plus she's easy to find so less chance of losing and she's not that likely to make a fuss about it either because of the business relationship between your families.

    Go get an idol (for the lol).
    More seriously, because it can give us some influence and it's not like hachi is a total stranger.
    And if we can make a little happy his father.

    Kotoka is IIRC so nice and innocent that she will definitely get instant friendzoning from Hachiman's part.

    She's definitely not going to show up enough to be cancerous, and Shuchiin unlikely have that many idols to begin with. So I don't think people need to worry too much.

    Especially with us keep refusing to work for production office.

    What happened Hachiman? How'd you become such a player? You're even using your father's connections to meet girls! It's like I don't even know you anymore!

    Daughter of Saionji Zaibatsu group, a big sponsor of your father's Production office and she's also one of his idols. Your father probably will be delighted if you get to know her better, and she stood out enough and easy to find.

    Though you're not fully comfortable with it you decided to settle with finding Saionji daughter in the crowd. Even though she's slightly shorter than average girls, her long pink hair and distinct eyebrows make her easy to spot.

    "Saionji-senpai, I'm producer Hikigaya's son, could I please ask for some help?" You ask her as you show her the request paper.

    "Ah, I remember, you're Hikigaya Hachiman-kun, isn't it?" She politely smiles, "Let's go!"

    Being idol and all, you decide against holding her hand or wrist and instead let her dictate the pace of running for you. However, Saionji wasn't content with running the girly way and sprinting full speed!

    Unfortunately, a tall senpai named Kazeno blitz off at the last second, while holding a hat.

    "Huh."

    You end up in second place.

    "I'm sorry, it's because I'm so slow." Saionji profusely apologizes.

    "Umm, not at all, Senpai runs at full speed, it's just that Kazeno guy being way too fast himself."

    Even if you're carrying an item as opposed to bringing a person, it's unlikely that you can win against the tall, muscular athlete Senpai with that kind of timing. Scavenger run is all about luck, more than even observation ability. Still, you can do worse than getting a second place, so it's still lucky.

    "Too bad Hachiman." Father approach you with a kind-looking middle-aged man in tow.

    "Ah, good Morning Producer Hikigaya." Saionji-senpai bows at him elegantly, "You came as well, father."

    "I just happen to have free time today, so I can attend the events full time." The middle-aged man said, "This might be the first time we meet, Hikigaya, uh, Hachiman-kun."

    Indeed, it's none other than Mr. Saionji, the leader of the Saionji group, and probably one of the richest men in Japan.

    "Nice to meet you, Saionji-san. Just Hachiman is fine." You also bow politely to him, "I'm sorry for causing a commotion with picking Senpai as an item."

    You hand out the paper to him, which makes the man laugh incessantly. "It's fine, it's fine. I always hoped you two can get along well anyway."

    ?

    After spending like ten minutes talking with everyone, Saionji Kotoka-senpai excused herself as she had to attend an event, the ball-tossing ones. As this is a large group event it's very hard to gauge which sides going to win anyway.

    "What event you're going to join next, Hachiman-kun?"

    "Ah, it's the club relay race at the end." You answer him.

    You don't feel the need to butter up to the Saionji patriarch even though he's Father's biggest sponsor and a good friend of his boss. Simple politeness like treating a friend of your parents should be good enough. Compared to that? Your father brags about you so much that you want to run away in shame, so you kick him on his shin in anger to make him stop.

    Ryuju returns from the ball-tossing event with Saionji-senpai in tow, though their group lost the match as well, Ryuju doesn't seem to be disappointed.

    "Ball tossing is all about laughing on the clumsy people anyway, so it's fine for me." Ryuju's mouth keeps twitching, clearly holding her laughter. Girl, you're being too cruel here.

    "But it's really fun isn't it?" Saionji-senpai smiles happily.

    "Hmm, who is that?" Your father asked.

    "Hmm, if I'm not mistaken, it's the daughter of the Ryuju group." Mr. Saionji noted.

    You can tell your father's very soul is halfway leaving his body before you smack his back and bring him back to earth again.

    "Momo-chin, too bad about it." A man dressed in a glossy suit approaches the group with a murderous grin, a large scar running down his left eye down his chin, and few smaller scars around his right side of the head. "But I saw the obstacle race, Hachiman you're one cool scoundrel."

    "Ah, nice to meet you again." You bow at him, "This is Ryuju-san, I'm close friend with his daughter Ryuju Momo."

    "Hmm? Oh, if it's Saionji-san, and is this..." The Yakuza boss mutter.

    "My father, you can just call him Producer Hikigaya." You introduce him.

    The kids decided to bail the moment Papa Shirogane also join the conversation. In passing, you're sure you're hearing that Ryuju boss talks with your father about one of his AV production are accepting 'failed' idols as well. Those who can't make it to the professional celebrity world after 'graduating' as an idol, but unwilling to let go of their fame and decided to enter the sex industry instead.

    Your father despises the fact, but recognize that's it's inevitable. There's always the darkness surrounding the limelight, and the light of an idol is not eternal. The least he could do is to ensure they can be treated well by the porn studios and companies, and you know very well that your father is hardcore enough that he will commit murder if that's what needed to protect them.

    Ryuju group, being a massive conglomeration of organized crime, of course, have a lot of unsavory business under their banner. However, at that size, most of their wealth would still come from legal or semi-legal business, and the monopoly of the porn industry in the Tokyo metropolis is one of them.

    You wonder if your father would try to get closer to him to make sure his former idols are in safe hands. Or he'll do the opposite, and he'll try to drive a wedge between you and Ryuju. Hopefully not the latter, you owe Ryuju a lot.

    Speaking of Ryuju, the three-legged race was legitimately amazing. with perfect coordination, they manage to stretch Ryuju's stride length to near-maximum level, allowing for them to achieve the speed that literally no boy-girl three-legged pair can even dream of.

    It's a miracle that they managed to win the first place by the skin of their teeth.

    It's clear that it's not just Tanuma who gets faster, but Hongo definitely improved as well. Not in the sense of raw speed, but definitely in control and timing.

    "Bow before me peasant!" Ryuju screams aloud as she raises the number 1 flag high while being carried by the girls of your class, "Another victory for Sabage club and class 1-D! Whoooooo!"

    Meanwhile, Hongo dabs on the seething male participants, some of them from the athletic club. For them to be beaten by the famous serial boyfriend with a handicap of a girl as a partner, it must be super humiliating.

    And finally, there's the climactic event that's club relay. This time, even though they're from a different class, Tanuma and Toyosaki join you, Hongo and Ryuju.

    "According to my calculation, it's best to start with Captain, followed by Tanuma, Hongo and then Ryuju-san as an anchor," Toyosaki informs you.

    "I disagree." Ryuju says, "The more common professional strategy means it's best with Tanuma as the third runner and Hongo second."

    Both Toyosaki and Ryuju were correct, in a sense that they have different priorities to their strategy arrangement.

    Honestly, you're somewhat biased toward Toyosaki in this regard, since Momo is demanding a higher standard from everyone, and picking Toyosaki's strategy means he's at least somewhat involved in the relay race, if indirectly.

    Either way, you'll be definitely the first runner, and if your own estimation is correct, Miyuki will also be the first runner representing the student council.

    [ ] Toyosaki's suggestion
    This strategy is a lot more common in middle school and high school relay race.
    [ ] Ryuju's suggestion
    This strategy is a lot more common in college and professional relay race.

    Wasn't using Ryuju being best girl as a deciding factor for this vote. Toyosaki is right. Best runner last is the norm. Second best starts the race. After the second best begins the race, it goes from worst runner, to best.
    Tanuma:
    Hongo:
    Hatchiman is behind Ryuju going by the description during the obstacle race, and that he's already locked in by default as the leading runner.
    And QM said that Ryuju is a 10 on athleticism. Perfect. She's anchor.

    There's also teamwork to consider. Ryuju worked with Hongo a lot and we successfully did underhand pass with Tsubasa during the test.

    Unless the unknown quirks of our club reveals itself, and proves me wrong during this race, I'd bet on what you said. Ryuju could be correct in that putting a faster runner on a straight portion of the track will give a greater benefit, but if there's not a great difference between ability, then this is not worth it. Some people are just better on bends, than they are on straights anyways, and we haven't tested who does better on what. Also, the later runners are the ones who needs to perform best under pressure. Tanuma is meek on his manliness rating the QM gave us, unless he changed significantly since the pep talk.

    It is typically easier to hand off a baton on a straight leg than around a curved one.

    Some teams even put people terrible at baton passing last, because they don't need to do a hand off. But Ryuju is last in both plans, so this is a bit irrelevant. But it shows that the norm is more of a guideline, for groups that aren't aware of their capabilities on a deeper level.

    There's not an ridiculous height difference between some of the runners, so they need to be spaced out to not make a baton pass awkward, right?
