Deadliest Fiction Wiki

It seems we have become armed middle school students. How did it come to this?
— Youji Takatsu

The Basket Army is the cast of main characters from the Busou Chuugakusei: Basket Army franchise. They are a group of students of the Eastern Defense Academy who were roped into protecting the Regeneratable Artificial Nerve (RAN) experiment from Trident.

On August 1, 2026, Class 2 of the Eastern Defense Academy were having their last day of summer training when they were visited by Tomonori Takizawa, who sought to entrust RAN to their instructor, Kimiko Kamiya, so it wouldn’t fall in the hands of the French Auber corporation. Before he could, Trident, a mercenary group hired by Auber, arrived on the scene and opened fire, killing several students and fatally injuring Takizawa and Kimiko. Shortly before dying, Tomonori entrusted RAN to one of the survivors, Touko Natori, who fled the scene with other surviving classmates.

Unaware of the true nature of the events, the public began to believe that the students had radicalised and committed a terrorist attack. On the run from Trident and unable to trust the police, the students banded together and called themselves the Basket Army. They would eventually be successful in fending off Trident and managed to clear their names.

Battle vs. Wolverines (Original) (by SPARTAN 119)[]

Wolverines: Blue x9

EPDA: Darkred x9

The Wolverines walked out of a forest, into a clearing containing the abandoned three-story building where the students of Eastern Private Defense Academy were holed up. Toni Mason, the Wolverine sniper, spotted Youji Takatsu in her scope, and assuming the strangely uniformed individual to be hostile soldier, possibly Chinese, pulls the trigger of her Savage 110 and sends a round through Youji's head. Darkred

"We're under attack!!, Everyone in position", Touko Natori yelled, as Ann Matsura took aim out of the window with her WA-2000 and spotted Toni Mason as she scanned for targets, and pulled the trigger, putting a slug through her head. Blue

The Wolverines reacted immediately, with Jed Eckert and several others laying down covering fire while Matt fired an RPG-7 at the floor where Ann Matsura fired from. The Warhead exploded inside the room killing Ann in a flash of fire. Darkred

Satoshi Yoshino retaliated, firing a three round burst of fire from his Howa Type 89, which picked off one of the Wolverines Blue, as Taro Tsurumi raised the M203 Grenade Launcher attached to his M4 Carbine, scoring literally blowing apart Matt Eckert. Blue

"MATT.... You'll pay for that, you bastards!", Jed said as he took aim with his AKM and fired, scoring a hit right through Taro Tsurumi's head Darkred, as one of his comrades managed to get a kill shot on Hikari Senami. Darkred

The remaining six surviving Wolverines made it to the door of the abandoned building, which Danny kicked open, triggering a Claymore mine rigged to the door Blue. Daryl moved in next, Winchester shotgun in hand, and spotted a girl in a school uniform.

"What the hell... I mean, what are you doing here, it's not...."

Daryl was cut off when Nanami Kanou drew a Steyr TMP and sprayed a hail of bullets at the Wolverines, cutting down Danny Blue with several bullets to the chest. Erica Mason was to angry about the deaths of her comrades to feel any emotion about the unknown enemy using child soldiers, and burst in next and shot Nanami with a Valmet M76, killing her. Darkred.

The three surviving Wolverines made their way to the top of the staircase, Aardvark throwing an RGD-5 grenade around the corner. The blast killed Satoshi Yoshino. Darkred.

As soon as the grenade detonated, the three remaining members of the Wolverines burst into the hallway on the second floor, only for Kazuki Kurobe to lean out of a stairwell on the other end and fire a three round burst from his M4, killing Aardvark.

Jed and Erica moved forward, towards the stairwell on the opposite side of the building. Jed went in first, and was met by a burst of fire from Kazuki, who missed. Jed retaliated with his AK, and also missed. Kazuki leaned out again and fired. This time, his aim was true. A round blew through Jed Eckert's head. Blue

Furiously, Erica grabbed Jed's Colt Single Action Army and fired, grazing Kazuki's side. Kazuki retreated back, M4 still in hand, and was soon met by Erica, who came up from the top of the stairs.

Kazuki tried to fire, but heard only the click of an empty chamber.

"This one's for Jed", she said as she pulled back the hammer and moved her hands towards the trigger. Suddenly, several loud bangs rang out, but Kazuki was not hit. Instead, several rounds impacted Erica's chest, causing her to fall to her knees, then hit the floor.

Kazuki turned to the Touko Natori, with a USP .45 in her hands, several spent casings at her feet.

"You should have shot instead of talked, gaijin", Touko said

WINNER: Eastern Private Defense Academy

Expert's Opinion[]

The EPDA won this match because of their superior training and weaponry, having actually received some degree of marksmanship training, as they were part of a JROTC-like program. Also, in the battle, I don't know who actually was using which weapon for sure in either series, so I made stuff up....
