Thank you, thank you.
Thank you very much for coming to our school today.
It looks like we have a large audience despite the fact that we couldn't advertise much beforehand.
It's the first time our school has tried this kind of format for a Dreamfes, too. It's an event that will serve as a kind of experiment. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience you might experience.
I also apologize that an old man like myself appeared even though you came to see young and cute idols.
Usually a cute guy named Nito does things like presenting.
But he's also an idol; he's participating with his unit, so he's busy.
Almost every student from Yumenosaki Academy will be participating in this Dreamfes... DDD. That's why, to be honest, we're actually short on hands.
Tallying the votes and the like will be done by us teachers to maintain fairness.
...Or would it have been better to introduce myself before explaining all of this?
Hmm, it's been a while since I stood on stage so I can't quite grasp when I should be doing what. My senses must be getting dull, age really is something you don't want to gain. Aren't I right, Kunugi-sensei?
Jin. No, Sagami-sensei... Cut the chatter and promptly go on with explaining.
Goodness. This Dreamfes doesn't have any meaning. It's certain that fine will win in the end, anyway.
Their abilities, popularity, talent and everything else; there's nothing to criticize. They are at the top of this school.
In the first place, we teachers unanimously choose them as our representatives for the SS under fair judgement.
Feeling dissatisfaction over that and opening a Dreamfes like this is preposterous.
They're underevaluating our ability to judge them; it's accurate to come to that conclusion, yes?
It's sad that the students don't have trust in us, but it isn't prudent to waste time.
Tenshouin-kun as well, just what is he thinking... I won't forgive selfishness like this for a second time.
Yes yes. Let's stop complaining and get to work, we are adults after all. Akiyan, you've been high strung from a long time ago, you'll go bald like that.
Don't call me 'Akiyan', Sagami-sensei.
You're in a worse mood than usual. However, I am quite excited, unbecoming of my age.
Youth is nice, isn't it? Being reckless and stuff, and trying things with all their might ♪
Jin. At least make sure not to smoke when you're on stage, the audience can see you.
You wasted your life as an idol with alcohol, tobacco and women, don't you feel any regret?
It's reverse teaching. Disciplining them harshly and only letting them take in good things isn't how you teach.
I mean, I'm not even an idol anymore, so it's fine, isn't it? I won't let the brats imitate me, after all.
You should let yourself go out sometimes, otherwise you'll go bald.
I won't go bald! I take care with my diet and don't slack with my hair care!
Hahaha. As always, you're somehow off- or should I say, you kind of have a wealthy kid kind of temperament, Akiyan... Well, that's also fine.
The good things about idols can't be measured in numbers.
It happens all the time that guys that we teachers have deemed excellent are useless when they finally get up on stage or the like.
That's why this kind of competition where idols are compared at face value isn't bad either. They're even more fair and practical.
Akiyan, you like logic, but you also learned the hard way that in the idol business logic doesn't always work.
What it is to be an idol, how you can make the audience the happiest... I think that that is everything.
No matter how well you can sing or dance, no matter how pretty your face is, no matter how good your sense for singing or outfit is...
That stuff doesn't matter. Those won't be good for anything.
Even if you get full marks on a test, that doesn't mean you get full marks as an idol.
The value of idols is much more vague- it's something to be taken in perspective, and it's precious.
I've also been an idol for a long time, and I've raised a lot of idols as a teacher here, but... I still don't know what exactly that 'precious something' is.
It's difficult. I am not good with things that require a lot of logic, after all.
But the greatest joy for an idol, their happiness, is the smiles of the audience.
It is their applause, their cheering, their positive reactions. Idols shine the most when they have gained those.
That shine illuminates this world and makes the lives of those who come into contact with it even a little bit more joyful. Isn't that what idols are?
Among the brats from our school, just which unit will shine the most?
They'll be compared in front of the many audience members to confirm that.
The DDD might be the most suitable way for us to decide the representatives for the SS, the best idols in our school.
