Seishun Buta Yarou (Japanese: 青春ブタ野郎) known in English as Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai, is a Japanese light novel series written by Hajime Kamoshida and illustrated by Keiji Mizoguchi. Its community was a member group of the Mai Alliance.

The piece was initially planned to be positioned between 573, 1830 and 606, 1870, directly bordering the Steins;Gate community's mural of Okabe. However, PlaceNL soon began construction of a massive painting, The Nightwatch, and the community was forced to relocate as most of the area was lost.


maiplace's discord server has been created by RacerJax and the project was mainly led by tea.

The community struck an alliance between Titanfolk and Steins;Gate, and the new bounds of the piece were to be positioned from 518, 1800 to 550, 1839. A border was shared between the piece and Titanfolk's Floch mural. However, this new position was not without compromise, as the piece was overlapping murals from HCult and a small piece depicting a Pim's biscuit, which came to be known jokingly as a potato due to its resemblance to the tuber. It was settled that both groups would incorporate themselves into the SBY artwork in exchange for permission to expand the piece into their former space. At this point, there was only enough space available to construct the head of Mai Sakurajima as the south border, shared with the Suns and Arizona Cardinals, was not contestable. However, during the night, the community was able to expand upwards enough to completely construct the original artwork, along with some extra space for allies to occupy.

After the expansion, it was believed that the final position of the piece had been secured, but this would soon prove to be a naïve belief. Mere minutes after finishing the piece, PlaceNL began expanding their border directly upwards, which cut through the SBY mural by about 13 pixels, in order to construct The Seven Provinces. It was stated by PlaceNL that Titanfolk had contacted SBY about the construction of the painting, but no communication had actually taken place. Titanfolk and Steins;Gate's murals would be moved, and SBY would be left to fend for itself.

The community scrambled to find a solution, first moving Mai Sakurajima 5 pixels to the left as a contingency, then by attempting to negotiate a plan with PlaceNL. Diplomats from the SBY community were ignored at first, but were soon put through to representatives from PlaceNL. It was eventually decided that, in order to preserve SBY's artwork as well as The Binding of Isaac's mural, the left border of The Seven Provinces would shrink by 13 pixels allowing the original borders of these communities to persist. Despite this provision, the painting still claimed casualties, namely SC and the LA Cardinals. It was quickly negotiated that SC would move into the bottom right of the SBY piece, while the LA Cardinals would move to the bottom left, partially overlapping the SBY piece as well as the Flair Wars icon.

This position was the final position of the SBY mural, and it would be defended until the eventual whiteout.
