Eichi Tenshouin School Dialogue Render


Everyone is frozen like a statue. You must be surprised because it was so sudden. However, I won't wait for an answer.

With just two weeks of training, you were able to gain the drive, the weapons needed, to be able to defeat Akatsuki. It would not be safe to let you be, I want you to give me an answer right here and now.

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

It's an honor to have the top idol of Yumenosaki be this cautious of us.

However our answer is already obvious. Aren't I right, everyone?

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render

...Can you let us think about it a little more?

Hokuto, this is unlike you. You're being led around by your emotions. It seems this is an even more bad situation than I thought it was.

Well, with it feeling as if we're one-sidedly ordered around in a condescending manner, I can understand that it doesn't sit well with you.

If this reality of ours were to be compared to a shogi[1] board, I'd say we have already lost almost all our pieces. We'll just corner ourselves by moving thoughtlessly.

Eichi Tenshouin School Dialogue Render

Hehe, it's good to be young. You must be thinking nothing is impossible. But I'd be happy if you would forget that presumption for a moment and thought about this calmly.

Isara-kun, since you are smart, I am sure you will be able to properly weigh what's in your best interests.

There is a reason I am hurrying you. We are planning to hold a certain event soon.

I want to take care of everything before that. In truth, we should already be starting to move things right now.

Our schedule is packed. Although I am sorry to trouble you due to my situation, I have been hospitalized for a long time, after all.

I have a mountain of things that I want to do, that I have to do.

I don't have the time to keep playing around with you forever. If you are still willing to fight then I will use all available methods to crush you.

I am not kind like Keito.

Hehe, to make it more easy to consider, I'll lay down some more cards.

Yuuki Makoto-kun.

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

M-M-Me? Wh-what is it?

Eichi Tenshouin School Dialogue Render

I would like it if you wouldn't be so scared, I am no tyrant. I always act while thinking of the well-being of the students of Yumenosaki Academy.

Yuuki-kun, let me tell it to you straight. The unit that can bring out your charms to the fullest isn't Trickstar, it's Knights.

In that unit there are Narukami-kun and Sena-kun, who even in this industry are considered as excellent gravure models.

There exists a system in which your talents can be used to their full extent. Because of the way it is in Knights, you will be able to blossom.

Isn't it the correct decision to prepare an even better stage for you in order to prepare you for your next step?

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

Being a gravure model...

Eichi Tenshouin School Dialogue Render

It isn't as if I'm saying you should return to being a gravure model. I'm only proposing it would serve you better to stay in an environment where you can use your talents to their fullest.

That environment is Knights.

If you just stay in Trickstar, you would be wasting your talents. It would just be killing your talent. Are you fine with being in the shadows forever?

At this rate, you will be in the others' shadows forever.

You should lay down a long term life plan. Look at what's ahead and accordingly act in the best way possible.

That is my philosophy at least.

The reason that our country falls behind in the entertainment business compared to other countries is because we focus on the individual instead of focussing on the whole picture.

Foreign countries depend on a system. They create a shoulder to lean on, improve their facilities, accumulate know-how, and with that, improve the quality of entertainment.

They efficiently use their funds and form a system.

Our country's entertainment business, including our idol business, have been sluggish in this regard.

Individuals get rewarded for their performances, but the system remains unsatisfactory.

Some do get popular on the fly and become a hot topic, but the reason is unknown. No statistics are made. They are just counting on the fact that one of many will be a hit.

But this is executed so unskillfully, you can hardly even call it gambling.

No system is made to create these topics; people are just getting excited seeing who will be a hit and who won't.

When putting in enough money, you can easily make people happy, but that is nothing but a waste of money.

They're just throwing money in the trash; nothing will be gained like that.

If I had to compare, then I would say it's like martial arts in foreign countries but just a brawl in ours. As long as they try hard enough, then it is also possible for the ones brawling to win for a moment.

However when looking at it long term, martial arts which has been perfected inside a system is stronger. When perfected, a system will excel more than any genius individual.

In the end it's like fighting a fighter plane with a bamboo stick. It's too late to change our ways when we already no longer have a chance to win.

We don't need any geniuses, we don't need any mighty warriors who can beat a thousand by themselves: it's mass-produced and properly trained normal soldiers who will win one day for certain.

That's what it means to focus on the system.
