...So what is it?
Just what is your serious business? I need to practice to prepare myself for that thing called DDD or something, that'll be held in a few days, you know?
If you're just going to get in my way then I'll have you leave right now. Unrelated parties are denied entry!
It looks like you're already fully in sulking mode, Akehoshi! But still! The fact that you haven't lost your will to fight even after you've been left all alone is praiseworthy!
You fight against loneliness and no matter how much you get pushed into a corner, in the end you make a great turnaround! Great explosion! Great victory! That's what an ally of justice is!
That's why you are worthy to be my successor...☆
What do you think, Akehoshi? Do you want to become a part of my Ryuseitai?
I've tried to scout you many times until now but was refused each time! However, Akehoshi, I will not give up! You have talent, radiance!
I want that radiance! You will be able to strive in Ryuseitai, and your talent will be able to carry Ryuseitai to an even higher height!
Join Ryuseitai, Akehoshi! You won't be able to win against the student council all by yourself, nothing will change if you are only looking down and crying yourself to sleep in a place like this!
Use us! We will become your power! The allies of justice are always the allies of the weak ones!
Ryuseitai doesn't fall under the student council's authority, on top of that it is also a strong unit which even has one of the oddballs, Kanata Shinkai, in its ranks.
If you join on top of that, we'll be even stronger. Overthrowing the student council wouldn't be just a dream.
It's no use clinging on to a unit that has already come to an end.
It's a shame but Trickstar can't shine any more. Most stars will burn themselves out and be filled with darkness. However, in Ryuseitai you will be able to shine again!
You will be able to take vengeance upon the student council, which unfairly took everything from you! You will be able to show those guys who betrayed you and threw you away!
And then you will become the brightest star, who shines at the top of this school!
That's your 'serious business'?
If so, then this talk is over. I don't have any intention to join a unit besides Trickstar.
Even if I'm all alone, I am Trickstar.
...Even I think it's childish and selfish. I'm miserable and pitiful. But I just don't think that Trickstar has burned out.
I also don't feel betrayed or thrown away.
Right now it's just a bit cloudy. Someday we'll be able to shine again.
I at least want to keep believing that. In the past... I was able to stand on a sparkling stage, which I hadn't even dared to dream of when I was alone like I am now.
With everyone else, during that S1.
It was a dream that lasted only a single night. It might have been a miracle. However, I want to stand there again. On top of that brightly shining stage.
And the ones who should be standing there... It can't be Ryuseitai or fine, Akatsuki or Knights, it has to be Trickstar.
I can't explain it very well, but those are my true feelings.
Chii-chan-buchou, even though you went out of your way to talk to me. Even though you worried for me and tried to cheer me up. I'm sorry.
My place to be isn't Ryuseitai.
But the real problem is, what do you plan to do from here on out?
We are also planning to participate in the DDD, so I've already checked the participation requirements for it. But you have to be a unit to participate.
The great premise for the DDD is that it is the preliminaries to decide which unit will represent our school in the end of the year SS.
It isn't allowed for an individual to participate.
And according to Yumenosaki Academy's rules the minimum number of people needed to form a unit is two. You won't even be able to stand on the decisive battleground if you're all by yourself.
If there's only one person left, your unit will be forcefully disbanded. You won't have any choice but to stand still while facing this harsh reality, without being able to do anything.
Even then will you still continue to serve Trickstar until the very end?
...Ha, haha! Hahaha! Haaahahahaha ☆
Wh-what's happened? Did you go mad, Chii-chan-buchou?
No, you see, I just finally understood. I see, so that's why she was wearing those kinds of clothes.
Well, that's fine. I fully understand how you feel about this, Akehoshi.
I'm sorry for doing something like testing you.
If your heart were broken because of what the president did and said... If that were so, I thought you wouldn't be able to endure standing on the battlefield any more than this.
I would have had no choice but to decide you were someone weak and that Ryuseitai and I should properly shelter you.
But you are a fighter! And you are still in the ring!
Your soul hasn't died yet!
Your heart is like iron. No, it's a jewel that is harder and shines more beautifully than anything else!
I am happy, Akehoshi! If you still haven't lost the will to fight, if your heart hasn't broken yet! Your chance to win won't be zero!
Let's give the president, who repeated his vile acts and made you suffer, what you owe him!
I want you to let me be your pillar of support for that. That is the 'serious business' I came to talk about!
Akehoshi, you are not alone.
Wh-what do you mean...?
