“Original dance”?

Tori Himemiya Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

Yeah. During today’s lesson, we had to create our own “original dance”.

We have a week to think up our own dance and practice it, then we’ll do peer evaluation during our recital.

Yuzuru Fushimi Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

Hmm, so the first years have such a lesson. It is rather, well, lovely…

Bocchama, is it alright if I were to observe the so-called recital?

I would like to take a video and send it to your father ♪

Tori Himemiya Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

It’s not alright! Don’t you dare come, Yuzuru! Although it’s called a recital, it’s a small thing that’ll be held in my classroom!

(Dance Time) Eichi Tenshouin Full Render

Aah, Yuzuru transferred here in his second year so he doesn’t know. We had the same lesson when we were first years too, how nostalgic.

Well, in the end, I collapsed and was hospitalized, so I wasn’t able to participate in the recital.

Wataru Hibiki Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

H~mm? I don’t have any memory of it since I just so happened to have a public performance at that time, so I was absent from class.

How regrettable, since it seems rather fun.

Yuzuru Fushimi Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

Fufu. Surprisingly, both of you senpai did not take your lessons seriously.

Wataru Hibiki Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

It‘s rather refreshing to be called “senpai” by Butler-san…

Well, it was a time when Eichi’s physical condition was worse than it is now, and as you know, I was a frivolous problem child.

(Dance Time) Eichi Tenshouin Full Render

Fufu. You were bored of the lessons that taught the basics back in our first year, weren’t you?

However, the exact same curriculum that was used two years ago is still being used now. This means that there hasn’t been any progress.

Minor improvements may have been made, but perhaps we should review the entire thing in one go.

After all, I want to provide the children who will support the future idol industry with a high quality education.

Yuzuru Fushimi Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

We have gone off topic. …What is the problem with the “original dance” lesson, Bocchama?

Tori Himemiya Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

Mm. Um, it’s an embarrassing story, but… As always, I boasted that I was a member of the strongest “unit”.

Yuzuru Fushimi Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

It appears that you have self-awareness, so there is nothing left for me to say.

Tori Himemiya Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

Yeah… That’s why during the “original dance” lesson,

I said, “I’m from “fine”, so I’ll show you the best dance!” in front of everyone.

Yuzuru Fushimi Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

Why did you put on such a pointless show?

Tori Himemiya Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

Uu~. No, Tsukasa provoked me, so I just retaliated… But I’m not that confident in my dance skills yet.

And so. I became uneasy, wondering what I’d do if I didn’t dance well.

Tsukasa will definitely make a fool out of me~, and everyone else might laugh at me.

Yuzuru Fushimi Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

Bocchama, you’re clumsy, after all. Your body is slow to mature, so your stamina and athletic abilities tend to be insufficient.

Well, this will be a good lesson. It would be good for you to fail, bear the shame, and do some self-reflection.

(Dance Time) Eichi Tenshouin Full Render

That’s harsh, Yuzuru. But Tori, it’s not like you’re bad at dancing.

Each time, you complete “fine”’s performances just right.

Yuzuru Fushimi Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

Kaichou-sama, that is the result of Bocchama’s blood, sweat and tears.

(Dance Time) Eichi Tenshouin Full Render

I am aware of that. I may be looking at things in a favorable light, but I think that among the first years, Tori is generally of top class excellence.

Tori, I… I didn’t pull you in to become our comrade just because you were cute, you know.

What sold me was your ambition and loyalty, your talent and ability — no, your radiance.

Tori Himemiya Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

I’m happy that you’re saying that, but… Nn~, as I thought, maybe this isn’t something I should seek advice for.

Even if I fail, I have to take the responsibility for bragging.

In reality, I may even be the best at dancing if I do it as I usually would. Maybe there isn’t anything to be worried about.

But still, I’d like a little confidence.

Wataru Hibiki Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

Fufufu. You’re shoulder-to-shoulder with elites like us, so it can’t be helped that you’d have low self-esteem, Himegimi.

Stand tall and confidently.

You overcame the hellish training while being trained by me under constant supervision. You won’t lose to any ordinary opponent, definitely not.

I’ve said this before, haven’t I? Hard work won’t betray you.

(Dance Time) Eichi Tenshouin Full Render

Fufu. But actually, even if you ask me for advice, I’m stumped.

It’s not an existing dance, but an “original dance”… It won’t be enough to simply be good at dancing.

Creativity is needed too.

However, I am good at watching others’ skills and imitating them, but… I am rather weak in creating something from scratch.

Wataru Hibiki Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

So am I. Butler-san is a subordinate as well, so he specializes in conducting himself when his master is around.

Surprisingly, this field may very well be our Achilles’ heel.

(Dance Time) Eichi Tenshouin Full Render

I don’t think you lack creativity though, Wataru. Even on stage, don’t you do a lot of ad-libs?

Wataru Hibiki Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

Ad-libbing is a technique, too. After all, I’m not creating something from nothing.

Tori Himemiya Dancefloor Practice Dialogue Render

(Ahaha. They’re talking about something sophisticated again. Sometimes they leave me behind.)

(Even though I’m in “fine” too. It’s as though I’ve been given the lowest seat in the presence of amazing people, out of pity.)

(As it is now, I won’t be able to catch up no matter how much time has passed.)

(Aah, geez, and it’s not like I don’t know how to handle something like the “original dance” lesson.)
