More importantly, you look like you're in seriously bad shape...

So go home. We have school tomorrow too, after all. If you suddenly collapse in the middle of the street at night, you're really gonna kick the bucket.

I'll escort you home. Wait, or maybe I should call a taxi depending on the distance... Where's your house?

Akiomi Kunugi 1st Year PE Winter Dialogue Render

Ah, it's rather far away, so...

When it feels like I'll get home late, I end up staying at a capsule hotel nearby. I have been doing that a lot, recently.

Jin Sagami 3rd Year School Dialogue Render

Capsule? There's no way you can relieve your fatigue if you sleep in a place like that.

Come to my place — it's right in the neighborhood. This is your bag, right? Just drape your jacket over your shoulders. Let's go, Akiyan.

Akiomi Kunugi 1st Year PE Winter Dialogue Render

Wait, don't just...! There is no way I could allow myself to cause you so much trouble!

Jin Sagami 3rd Year School Dialogue Render

Don't be shy. You're really gonna die.

Being an idol isn't worth dying for, y'know.

Akiyaaan, hurry up! Don't lumber around — move quickly!

Akiomi Kunugi 1st Year PE Winter Dialogue Render

Because you are "Jin", yes? Fufufu ♪

I mean, punctuality is a golden rule as an idol! Sagami-senpai always teaches me important things!

Jin Sagami 3rd Year School Dialogue Render

You're totally staggering around. Should I carry you on my back? C'mere ♪

Akiomi Kunugi 1st Year PE Winter Dialogue Render

P-please do not treat me like a child!

Jin Sagami 3rd Year School Dialogue Render

... Hey. Why're you working so hard?

Even without being impatient and putting in a bunch of effort, I'm sure you'd be decent when you become my age.

Akiomi Kunugi 1st Year PE Winter Dialogue Render

Being "decent" isn't enough, Sagami-senpai.

I'm originally a junior model... and while my model activities are currently my main priority, it is not a job that I will be doing for a long time.

I'll wither away the more I age. It's not like I'm looking before I leap, but I'd like to be able to have a variety of skills.

Jin Sagami 3rd Year School Dialogue Render

Being an idol is the same thing. This kinda work... it's way more "you can only do this while you're still young" than being a baseball player or whatever.

If you find success there, you might as well stay there and take the world.

Akiomi Kunugi 1st Year PE Winter Dialogue Render

I'm aware that I'm invading the territories of various seniors who are aiming only to be an idol. But this is the path I have chosen.

During a part of my model activities... during a magazine project, I had done something idol-like.

When I was child, you see. That was when I was praised for my voice.

Jin Sagami 3rd Year School Dialogue Render

You really do have a beautiful singing voice, after all. Though it gives off more of an opera singer feel than an idol.

Akiomi Kunugi 1st Year PE Winter Dialogue Render

Opera... I shall study that as well.

Jin Sagami 3rd Year School Dialogue Render

Wait, no. If you just taste a little bit of everything, you'll never be able to get to the delicious part, Akiyan...

Sorry, it's not like I meant to lecture you or anything.

Akiomi Kunugi 1st Year PE Winter Dialogue Render

No, I am greatly touched by your consideration.

However, in the public eye... it looks like I've started becoming an idol with casual feelings because of that initial success.

Such things have been written in magazines. "The Sparkling Prince of the model industry tries to take on being an idol~ ♪" and such.

Jin Sagami 3rd Year School Dialogue Render

People call you the Sparkling Prince...?

Magazines, huh... I haven't read those in a while. They're usually just full of dumb backhanded compliments by people I don't even know.

Akiomi Kunugi 1st Year PE Winter Dialogue Render

Ahaha. Modeling work is actually deeply connected to the publishing industry, so I end up being rather curious about it.

There are people who have taken care of me who also create magazines, after all.

It's just that recently, there have been many articles that treat me with contempt... Ah, no, it's possible that I might be reading too much into things, or am I just being paranoid.

I am truly aiming to be an idol with all seriousness. I want to be an idol like you, Sagami-senpai, who gives dreams and smiles to everyone.

Being a model is a one-way street, but as an idol... My voice can reach people — it can resonate with others.

I did not begin to walk down the path of an idol just for fun. This isn't just a taste, Sagami-senpai.

If I lack something, I will work hard and make up for it. Fortunately, I also have a great senior right nearby as a role model.

... I can't stand being told that it's simply "my face that's idol-like".

Jin Sagami 3rd Year School Dialogue Render

So that's why you're working yourself to death? To stare back defiantly at others around you and show them that they're wrong?

Akiomi Kunugi 1st Year PE Winter Dialogue Render

That is a part of it, as embarrassing as it is... I sound like a brat, don't I?

Jin Sagami 3rd Year School Dialogue Render

What's wrong with that? That's manly of you~♪

Akiomi Kunugi 1st Year PE Winter Dialogue Render

You're making fun of me, aren't you?

Jin Sagami 3rd Year School Dialogue Render

Not at all. Do your best. Don't lose to anybody, Akiyan.

This might sound all high and mighty of me, but... treasure that passion of yours. You're still a brat, so you might as well act as one.

The entertainment world is full of lies, and you'll struggle with disillusionment and the difference between your ideals and reality.

But the only ones who can breathe fresh air into the unmoving adult society are the idiot kids of any generation.

Work hard, Akiyan. Until you catch up to me, I'll be holding out and fighting.

I'll throw out a radiance that can reach even heaven.

And that isn't a lie.
