I heard something like “chocolate making,” but are you by any chance talking about Chocolat Festival~?

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render.png

Is that voice Sari~!? Huh? Since when have you been behind us!?

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render.png

I wasn’t standing there listening long enough to say “when” about it, though, you know… The atmosphere seemed somehow serious, so I was looking for the right timing to call out to you guys, you could say.

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render.png

Ah~ The talk about Hokke’s grandma?

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render.png

Oohh… *sniffle*...

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render.png

Huh? Why are you crying, Ukki? Ukki, it’s a banana! Cheer up!

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render.png

O- ouch! Don’t grind bananas into my face~! Akehoshi-kun, did you bring a banana just for this joke!?

That is- I wasn’t down in the dumps, okay!?

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render.png

Huh? Is that so?

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render.png

That is, I did think that it’s not nice to stand and listen to people’s conversations, is it, but…? When I was listening to the story about Hidaka-kun and his grandma, I was moved to tears…

Are my tear glands weaker than I thought…?

Um, Chocolat Festival, was it? Do you plan on giving them to someone, I wonder, Anzu~?

I’m sorry for asking such a rude question!!

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render.png

Ohh, you sure prostrated[1] yourself with some great enthusiasm, didn’t you~? You look even better doing it than me, and all. Maybe when something happens, I’ll take you along with me, Makoto.♪

I guess when you have two people apologizing instead of one, the person you’re apologizing to is more likely to forgive you, after all, you know.

From that just now, I’ve gained confidence in your prostration skills.

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render.png

That doesn’t make me happy, you know, Isara-kun!? I’d be happy if you praised me because my singing voice was pretty, or because my dancing was refined, but of all things, my prostration~?

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render.png

No, no, you can’t make light of prostration, you know. Between dragging out a problem illogically because your pride is too great, and resolving a problem in short order by bowing your head…

The latter will serve you in the future, so, see~? It’s to your benefit to sell out your pride, you know, Makoto?

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render.png

Uuugh. You sound convincing, so I feel like I might start nodding inadvertently...

What do you think of a boy prostrating himself, Anzu? I guess I look uncool, after all, don’t I...?

Is- is that so? It depends on the time and place, does it? Then, in the event that I can’t avoid it, you won’t feel disdain for me even if I prostrate myself, Anzu.

*phew*~ That’s good...

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render.png

Makoto is attached to you, isn’t he, Anzu~? Well, Makoto isn’t good with girls, and all, is he? It’s only natural that he’d open his heart to you, Anzu, the only one he can talk to, huh?♪

Speaking of which, do you know about Chocolat Festival?

Hmm. You know because you heard about it from Hokuto, have you? Ahh, I see. So, that’s why you were talking about chocolate making, huh~

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render.png

In Chocolat Festival, all of the units make chocolates, but I wonder what the other units are doing, you know?

Look, see, it’s not like every unit’s members are specialists at making chocolates… at making sweets, and all.

That being as it is, it seems like they would have someone teach them, I thought.

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render.png

Unlike a normal Dream Fes, winners and losers will not be established, so, see...

I am sure it would not be strange if units that were good at making sweets were asked to teach others.

We also asked Anzu to participate in the chocolate making, but Anzu is everyone’s producer.

So it would not do for us to monopolize her, you see.

I’m sure that in the near future, there will be other units sounding out whether or not they can ask her, as well.

Thinking about it that way, it might reduce the burden on Anzu if we got a set number of units together in one place to make chocolates.

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render.png

Regardless of the fact that you don’t have to plan or manage it, you have a ton of producer work, don’t you~?

If we ask other units that are great at making sweets, apart from Anzu, the burden on Anzu would be even more reduced, maybe.♪

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render.png

Uh, uhhm. I do have one person in mind, but it’s someone I absolutely don’t want to rely on, you know. If I talked to Izumi-san about this, he’d be overjoyed, I’m sure...

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render.png

Do you have some bad memories of making sweets with Sena-senpai, or something, Makoto? But... I see. That person, is he particularly good at making sweets~?

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render.png

Sweets, that is to say, he’s particularly good at all kinds of cooking, isn’t he? ... I’ve eaten his food once, but it was delicious, without complaint, you know?

But, given the slightest chance, he’d try to feed me by hand, and call my name in a coaxing voice…

It was really a terrible pain, so I’ve had enough of Izumi-san’s cooking, you know?

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render.png

You… had it rough, huh.

I can do household stuff to the degree normally expected, too, but to say I’m good at it, huh~? I guess it would be better to ask someone with some moderate experience, wouldn’t it?

And so, that leaves just that guy, doesn’t it?

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render.png

Sari~ do you have an idea of someone?

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render.png

Yeah. He’s also a member of Knights, but wouldn’t Ritsu be okay?

Despite his appearances, he’s particularly good at making sweets, you know. So much so that he gleefully announced to me that he’d won a sweets making contest, and all, see~?

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render.png

According to my information, Izumi-san touched up the designs, and then they sold them like that, didn’t they? But, I wonder why he touched them up?

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render.png

Ah~ ... The sweets that Ritsu makes- that is… they look novel, so, see... if they put them out like that, I think they wouldn’t have sold.

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render.png

Umm, Sari~? In that case, wouldn’t we not be able to give them to visitors?

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render.png

Hmmm, the taste is superb, though, you know. Anzu, you’ve eaten the sweets that guy makes, too, right?

Yeah. If you close your eyes and pop them down, they’re pretty delicious, so I think they’d be happy, but…

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render.png

I don’t think they’d be happy about sweets they couldn’t eat unless they closed their eyes, but...?

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render.png

Nah, his manufacturing process didn’t seem like something we could copy easily, and all, so it would be hard to ask Ritsu, huh? Then, in that case, someone else who’s good at… Ah.

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render.png

What’s wrong, Sari~?

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render.png

Couldn’t we ask Narukami? To up their girl power? they’ve gotten good at all kinds of cooking, you know.

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render.png

Yeah, if it’s them, it seems like we’d be able to have them explain it to us in an easy to understand way, doesn’t it? And I’m sure that it’d be less of a chore for you if it was someone who you got along with, right, Anzu?

But, Knights sure does randomly have a lot of members who can cook, don’t they? Perhaps we should also increase our areas of specialty.

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render.png

When thinking about the future, maybe we should, huh?

Well, we can think about that over time, but we’re in luck that we have a unit close by with unexpectedly high what you call “girl power,” huh?

Then, I’ll pass this on to them, so once the details are set, I’ll contact you, okay? ♪

  1. The type of prostration they are talking about is dogeza (土下座), in which one kneels on the ground and leans forward, placing one's hands or one's hands and head on the ground. It is rarely done in real life, reserved only for the most dire of apologies or the greatest begging of favors.
