Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render


Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Are you alright, Akehoshi? It's unusual for you to collapse like this.

I'll lend you my shoulder, so walk properly.

Don't lean all your body weight on me, I'm tired and have muscle pain all over too. I'm also exhausted.

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render

Uu... I never knew that if you use up all your energy, you won't be able to move even the tips of your fingers. It's a new discovery, Amazing ☆

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Don't say Amazing. I hate that word.

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

I'd even say it's kind of incredible that we were able to cleanly use up all of our energy. I wonder if our fuel consumption is alright.

You sang out loudly until the end of the encore, and then as soon as we got off the stage you fell down horizontally... You really surprised me, I thought you suddenly died.

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render

Yeah. If the transfer student didn't hand me water and a hyourougan[1] right after, I might have died. Aah, I'm spent.

I used up all of my power, whether I try to swing my left arm or my right arm, they just won't move!

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

Me too. I was supposed to be alright after having trained so hard, but the training was just put together hastily. I can't feel my legs and my throat is completely dried up.

Well, I guess I didn't collapse during the live performance, so all is well.

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Yes. We fought a formidable enemy and won, there is a sense of accomplishment. I am also feeling dazed.

I feel like I'll be able to sleep peacefully tonight.

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

But I'm scared to go to sleep. I'd hate it if this all was just a dream. I'd drop dead if I woke up and realized it was still the first day of training!

...We really won.

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

It still doesn't really feel real. It's like there wasn't that much of a resistance, like it was too easy.

This time we were somehow able to grasp victory thanks to UNDEAD and 2wink... thanks to Ra*bits cheering for us and thanks to the transfer student.

We only had to push the last bit.

It was a surprise attack, after all. The winner was decided by having Akatsuki busy, unable to deal with all the unexpected situations.

It won't work a second time. If it was a straight one on one fight, we wouldn't have won.

However, a win is a win. We won and can advance, even if it's only for now.

It'll be hard on us again from tomorrow on, but we did something great.

I don't have any regrets.

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

Hey, don't close your eyes. It's like you're going to die. If you don't stay awake until you reach your house, you'll seriously just die on the roadside.

Should we just call a taxi?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

I don't want to use money pointlessly, thinking about how we might need it in the future. But it should be fine if it's for today... This kind of expense just can't be helped.

I'd even want to stop by a hospital on the way and have them attach an IV.

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

We're all tired for real, after all. I'd want to hold an after party just like this, but it seems impossible today.

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Our fight with the student council starts from here. We can't relax yet.

We should prepare for the harsh fights we will face from tomorrow on... but let's peacefully sleep while thinking of nothing today.

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render

...Huh? I might have been sleeping just now!

Hmmm, I wonder if I can reach my house. I live in the neighborhood, but you guys live a bit farther right?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

That's true, but luckily Yuuki and I live in the same direction. If we support each other while we go home, I don't think we'll fall asleep.

The trains are probably still moving. In the worst case, we can still use a taxi.

Transfer student, where do you live?

If it's far we'll walk you home, but if it's in the neighborhood we'll have Akehoshi take care of you.

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render

Roger, that sounds good. It's dangerous for a girl to walk alone in the middle of the night after all.

Huh, come to think of it, what about Sari?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

You're noticing way too slow, Akehoshi. Isara said he still had business with the student council, so after the Dreamfes ended he went there immediately.

Even though we couldn't move from exhaustion for quite a while... Isara is really tough.

Both in a physical sense and a mental sense, Isara is strong. However, because of that, he tries to carry too many things by himself.

I also have a habit of doing that, so I don't really have the right to say this, but... watching him like that from the outside is painful.

The student council room must be like a bed of nails for him right now, but we just can't help him in there.

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render

We involved Sari in our fight with the student council... I feel really responsible for that.

Honestly, it's a wonder how he cooperated with us. No matter how much we thank Sari, it wouldn't be enough.

It's the same for the transfer student. Thank you for sticking with us until this late.

No. Thank you for helping us, for supporting us and for cheering us on.

It made me really happy. Thanks to you, we were able to win. It's really reassuring to know that someone is cheering you on.

It'd be nice if inside you, too, today would stay as a happy memory.
