Itsuki-kun, are you here?

(Costume Maker) Shu Itsuki Full Render.png

Ah, is that Rei?  It appears that you’ve come in without knocking properly, but I really have no cause for complaint.  It’s rare indeed for you to go out of your way like this.

(Strolling) Rei Sakuma Full Render.png

Indeed.  Actually, once the ‘Halloween Party’ is over, Switch and UNDEAD have been asked to do a joint live, so I was wondering if it was possible to ask you to design the outfits for that.

(Costume Maker) Shu Itsuki Full Render.png

Hmm, currently the number of costumes I’ve been tasked to make for the ‘Halloween Party’ has left me a bit swamped.  

If it’s about the costumes or the production, couldn’t you just ask that girl instead?

(Strolling) Rei Sakuma Full Render.png

That would be impossible, seeing as how she’s going to be on the second-year school trip the day of the live.  

Have you heard about the assistance that Anzu-chan has given us in the past?  I’m sure it’s been mentioned.  

She’s always tried to take care of everyone in the idol course, so for once, I’d like to let her enjoy herself on this trip without and prior obligations.

(Costume Maker) Shu Itsuki Full Render.png

Hmm?  You said that it was a joint live with Switch, correct?  Then what is that boy doing?

More than that, you also have some second-year students in your unit.  School excursions as a whole don’t hold much interest for me, especially as it’s just a trip with classmates.

That’s my opinion, but on the other hand, opportunities for lives are plentiful.  This is an experience that should be taken advantage of if the chance arises.

Kukuku, to think a day would come when you would utter those words!  I’m thankful to have lived to witness it ♪

Speaking of that, though, you also have a second-year in your unit, do you not?  Is that child going on the trip?

(Costume Maker) Shu Itsuki Full Render.png

Hmm, he won’t stop going on about it.  It’s always ‘How many more sleeps ‘til the school trip~? ♪’ these days.  But just because I personally would have no interest in going, that hardly means I would do anything to dampen his enthusiasm.  

(Strolling) Rei Sakuma Full Render.png

Kukuku, how lovely… ♪

Hm~m, you do have a point, though, and in some ways I think it would be better for my children and Sakasaki-kun to go.

Their initial reaction appeared to be mostly disinterest, but what if they actually wish to participate?  Wanko especially, perhaps he didn’t admit to it because he has a penchant for being dishonest.

(Costume Maker) Shu Itsuki Full Render.png

I’m afraid pondering this with me won’t do any good, so why don’t you inquire with them directly?

But back to your original request: if you’d like me to handle the production design and costumes, I don’t mind.

(Strolling) Rei Sakuma Full Render.png

Truly?  Or rather, I’m sorry to trouble you with this ♪

(Costume Maker) Shu Itsuki Full Render.png

It’s a request made by a friend.  But, if I’m involved in this, I would never allow some half-baked performance to fly.  So for that reason, I won’t accept you feeling any guilt over contracting my talents.  

(Strolling) Rei Sakuma Full Render.png

You know how to exploit my weaknesses.  In any case, I’m very grateful that you’ve agreed.  Thank you, Itsuki-kun.

(Costume Maker) Shu Itsuki Full Render.png

May I ask one more thing?  Aoba is in Switch, after all, so why didn’t you go to him?  Wouldn’t it make a bad impression if I accepted without his knowledge?

(Strolling) Rei Sakuma Full Render.png

Considering the atmosphere of the live venue, I felt it was perfectly suited to your particular brand of design.  I’ve brought a brochure from the hotel that the live is to take place at; here you are.

(Costume Maker) Shu Itsuki Full Render.png

Hmm… I see.  It’s rather incredible.

The truth is that my main interest is in dolls, but some of the furniture choices at this hotel are stunning. 

Rei, is that all you require of me?  To begin with, I’ll need to study this pamphlet carefully to form a proper image of what I wish to create.  Since I’ve accepted this, I wish to complete it to the best of my ability.  

Things are going to get busy… kakakaka ♪
