“Guess I’ll get some cushions for the bench, then.”

– Every anime side character once they eventually realize they’re not the protagonist

Some behind-the-scenes info – this chapter was the second scene I imagined for this series, the first being Chapter 1. Originally, Santa Claus Academia was just going to be the parody manga cover alone, then it expanded to a three-parter consisting of Chapter 1, this chapter, and the final chapter. Then I kept getting more ideas and it became this month-long thing. Honestly, any publishing or studio executives out there, I’ve got enough material to stretch this thing out for far longer than the premise warrants – hit me up!
