Mitsuru Tenma Sportsfes Dialogue Render

Moving around so much has made me hungry! Bread-bread-bread, I'm eatin' up some bread~♪

Tomoya Mashiro School Dialogue Render

You... that's how you end a difficult practice, huh? All you have to do is eat bread and you're happy again.

Ah, my throat is dry. I'd kill for a sports drink instead of bread.

Hm? Transfer student-senpai? You brought one just for me?

Thank you very much! You saved me from a terrible dry throat. ♪

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

...

Tomoya Mashiro School Dialogue Render

Are you okay, Hajime? Drink one of the sports drinks Transfer student-senpai brought and cheer up, okay?

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Ah! I'm sorry. Practice was harder than I thought it would be. I'm so exhausted I spaced out. I need to get stronger and take after Mitsuru-kun, who can eat bread immediately after practice... ♪

Tomoya Mashiro School Dialogue Render

I gotta get stronger too. I'm better compared to when I started out, but continuous practice completely wears me out.

Just what you'd expect from Nii-chan. He's pushing us so we don't drag everyone in Knights down.

We can't move around as flashy and spectacular as they do, but we're going to be dancing with the Knights as fairies, so...

I'm worried we'll hold them back. The school festival is tomorrow, but can we manage like this...?

Nazuna Nito PE Dialogue Render

Quit, it, Tomo-chin. You look all gloomy.

Tomoya Mashiro School Dialogue Render

N-nii-chan!? ... I'm sorry. Complaining like this is pretty pathetic, huh.

Nazuna Nito PE Dialogue Render

You're fine. I'm worried too, you know -- about whether it's been going well, or whether we can make the audience happy.

But you can't let it show on your face. We're fairies, and together with Knights... no, the shining cavalry... we're going to dance on stage.

At the very end, we have to give each one of them flowers as thanks for dancing with us, and then disappear. That's our role.

If we give them flowers looking all gloomy, they won't feel our gratitude. It'll clash with the program.

You don't need to think about whether you're good enough. What's important is keeping that feeling of wanting to see it through in your chest.

As far as that goes, Hajime-chin, Tomo-chin, and Mitsuru-chin are passing with flying colours. ♪

Tomoya Mashiro School Dialogue Render

Nii-chan... thank you so much! I was worried about what I needed to do.

That's right. I shouldn't get depressed about not being experienced enough. I should just let my feelings fill in the gap!

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Right! Let's do our best, Tomoya-kun... ♪

Tsukasa Suou PE Dialogue Render

...

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

You're... Suou-kun, aren't you? Suou-kun, what's wrong? You're spacing out. Do you feel unwell? I'm worried. Shall I take you to the nurse's office?

Tsukasa Suou PE Dialogue Render

You're... Hajime-kun. Please do not fuss over me. I simply have something on my mind.

I am truly a novice. My senpai hardly pause for breath, and yet here I am, the sum of my efforts.

Ritsu Sakuma School Dialogue Render

I've been in tip-top shape since the sun went down... ♪ Hey, Secchan. Why don't we take it from the top again? If you can't make it, starting from the middle's good, too..

Izumi Sena PE Dialogue Render

You've got a lot of nerve. Like I'd be worn out from this alone. Even if you beg for mercy, I won't give you a lick, so get ready!

Ritsu Sakuma School Dialogue Render

Hehehe... That's exactly what I was hoping for, though... ♪

Arashi Narukami PE Dialogue Render

My, you two seem to be having fun. Let me jump in! I hate being left out, you know?

(Chasing) Tsukasa Suou CG
Tsukasa Suou PE Dialogue Render

... I want to be included as well. I want them to call my name -- right now.

But I've driven myself to my limits... and if they were to include me once I finally caught my breath, I would simply be holding everyone back.

I am very much chagrined.

I am also part of Knights, but I cannot keep up with them. All I see is a distant mountaintop I cannot hope to grow and surpass.

... please forgive me. Forget what you've heard. I am too caught up in my feelings; I must focus.

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

U-um, Suou-kun!

Tsukasa Suou PE Dialogue Render

What's wrong? You've called for me in such a loud voice, and yet we're this close... I can hear you just fine.

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Er... well... I don't really know how to say it. But honestly, I think you're amazing, Suou-kun.

You've been dancing and swinging around a rapier, and I know if that were me, I'd be dead tired in just a few minutes.

But you managed to make it to the end. I almost wanted to applaud you.

So if you're a novice, I must be the biggest newbie in the industry. But I'm still trying my best.

Even if I can't catch up, I can keep chasing after Nii-chan without stopping. And one day, I'll catch up to Nii-chan. That's what I think. ♪

Tsukasa Suou PE Dialogue Render

Hajime-kun... you're quite a strong person.

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

U-um, did I seem too haughty? I'm so sorry...!

Tsukasa Suou PE Dialogue Render

No, you've encouraged me. If I have time to wallow about and compare myself to my senpai, I should instead refine myself.

Narukami-senpai, Sena-senpai, and Ritsu-senpai did not start out perfect. More likely is they've worked hard, and I simply haven't seen it.

You cannot improve if you do not make the effort. They are Knights, so they must be elegant and smart... is the image I have in my head.

On stage, I dance without shame as a knight, of course.

But backstage, I strive hard in a way the audience does not see. That is hardly strange.

Ritsu Sakuma School Dialogue Render

Suu-chan, did you make friends with Haa-kun? That's fine and all, since Haa-kun's been my friend for forever... ♪

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

U-um, you're a bit too close. But more importantly, may I ask why you're smelling me...?

Ritsu Sakuma School Dialogue Render

Mm... I was checking to see if your blood would be tasty. Hm... too bad, but no. There's nothing wrong with your blood, but maybe 'cause you've been eating garbage food, the flavour's not there

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Ugh -- it's not garbage, okay...? Fried bean sprouts are cheap and delicious, and my family loves them... ♪

Ritsu Sakuma School Dialogue Render

But that's just what I was talking about. Well, I don't need to drink right now. I've got a lot of energy since the sun is totally gone. ♪

Arashi Narukami PE Dialogue Render

Goodness me. It's already this late? Tomorrow's the big day, so why don't we call it here? We can't go the whole night, you know? Now then, everybody! Let's do our best tomorrow to create a stage that pleases our audience... ♪
