|I know you're happy and all that you won that stuffed animal, but make sure you watch where you're walking. Jeez, don't go complaining to me if you crash into somebody.|
|You don't understand my excitement at all, Tomo-chan! Hmph!
Don't ruin my happiness of finally being able to get my 'venge!
|Revenge, not 'venge. You might be a high schooler, but I see you get middle school-level questions wrong sometimes and I get kinda uneasy...
But whatever, at least I get what you're trying to say.
|With a stuffed animal this big, I can even use it as a body pillow! We're gonna be sleeping together from now on, kyahho~i! ☆|
|Yeah yeah, good for you. He made me wait almost an entire hour, but seeing him smile so innocently like that just makes me want to let it go.
I guess I'm pretty soft on him too, huh...
|Mitsuru-kun's smile has the power to make everybody happy, after all ♪ ... phew. I've gotten a little sweaty from wandering around everywhere...|
|Why don't we head into a store and take a breather? You all have been moving about without a break ever since the live show — you have limits to your stamina no matter how young you may be.
It seems like Mashiro-kun is quite familiar with the building, so can you guide us around?
|Wha— me!? U-uhh, I'm not quite sure if there are any shops that might tickle your fancy, president...
There are a lot of shops that have pretty moderate prices...
|It's not like I have a preference for high class products, so I don't mind at all. In fact, I have an interest in plebeian stores — I've always wanted to try things like stand-up-eating soba shops.|
|What a coincidence, onii-sama... ♪ I have always thought about trying something like that as well.|
|Kake soba's okay, but bread's great too! I'll show you to my favourite store, ehen! ♪|
|Come on, Mitsuru, don't decide on your own. I'm sorry that he rushed off...|
|Fufu, don't be so timid. I wouldn't mind at all if you treated me casually like your friend over there.|
|U-uh, no, that'd be way too much for me, I think...|
|And now he lovingly calls me "Eichi onii-chan" — can you call me that right now, Hajime-kun?|
|Of course, Eichi onii-chan... ♪|
|Ah... such destructive power no matter how many times I hear it. I'm starting to feel dizzy ♪|
|W-what!? That's terrible! If you felt unwell, please say so, Eichi onii-chan!
Uu, I'm sorry for making you accompany us everywhere — I had no idea!
|There's no need for you to apologize, Hajime-kun. I was the one who insisted on coming with you all.
The fun I had here was like a dream. When was the last time my heart pounded with so much excitement like this?
If I just stayed at home, I'm sure I would've spent the entire time doing nothing. It's just like when I was staying in my hospital bed — the tasteless hospital food, the unchanging scenery...
But if I am able to exchange those days for being able to wander around the shopping mall with everybody, I have no regrets. I'm able to live on with just these memories.
Fufu. I'm just joking, Anzu-chan. Please don't look so upset, like you're going to tear up at any moment — a producer is the light that shines upon all idols.
If you look downcast, everybody else will too.
Mm, it might be difficult to have a smile on your face all the time, but I'd like you to keep that in mind...
If you're going to keep helping everybody as their producer from here on out.
