|Writer: 日日日 (Akira)||Requirement: (Taiyaki) Mika Kagehira's Idol Road|
|Season: Spring (春) - Before the start of the Main Story||Location: Park|
How long are ya gunna sit there like a dummy, Moon-san's come out already! As ya'd think, it's night time so it's gunna get cold, so we gotta evacuate right away? Right?
Let's go home, get warm and go to bed?
Look look, that food stall's sellin' taiyaki! I got 'em to lower the price by saying "they're leftovers~" ya know? Mentor, will ya eat?
It's sweet and yummy~♪
|Ah, don't wanna? Yeah, if you eat at a very late hour, you'll get fat, huh? Mentor, you're worried about your weight or something, yeaah?
I'm gunna eat, though, do ya mind?
We did a lotta singin' and dancin' so I'm freakin' starving~! Hot- this's hot yeah! My tongue, it's gunna burn! Hafu~!
|[Mika-chan. It's fine if you go ahead, alright?]
[Shu-kun is still sorting out his thoughts a little, so it looks like he can't move...... I'm sorry. We left the key in its usual place]
[So it's fine if you return home ahead and sleep already, alright?]
|Ah, yeah...... Thanks for the concern, Mado-nee. Mado-nee, too, are you coming home with me?|
|[I'm going to look after Shu-kun for a little longer. I'm a little bit worried, after all]|
|H~m...... If Mado-nee's gunna stay behind, I'm gunna stay with ya. Ah, you've gotten new clothes, haven't ya?
Must be nice huh? Only you got some, Mado-nee~?
|[Hee hee~, it is nice, isn't it? ♪ Mika-chan, you're in the Handicrafts Club too, so isn't it fine for you to make western clothes or anything else you would like yourself?]|
|Ngh~ but I wanna wear the stuff Mentor made
By the way, if ye're gunna act like a dummy here in the park in the middle of the night, won't ya look like some suspicious guy? Let's go home already~? 'kay, Mento~r?
I mean, we go home to the same place anyways, so let's go together? If ya got a lot ta think about, you can do that at home. Since I'm just a freeloader......
Going home just by myself, it feels kinda weird, yeah?
|[Hmph, honestly, you aren’t a baby that's still in diapers--...... Hm?]|
|What's up, Mado-nee? Ah, there's someone there! Hmm......Hmm~, I can't see 'em! It's coz I'm blind at night, ya know?|
|AHh, that shocked me!? Nito...... You mean the one over there is Nazuna-nii?|
|Heey, Nazuna-nii! It's kinda been a while yeah~ Are ya doin' okay? Ah, will ya have some taiyaki?
There's only 'bout a third left, but Nazuna-nii eats sparingly ♪
|Please be quiet for a moment, Kagehira
Don't speak. Even though you have such a preciously lovely face, you’re ruining it, aren’t you? As a matter of fact, it's a bungled failure of a creation, isn't it?
You can only speak with the words that I have permitted, yes?
|Ngah, right...... Sorry, Mentor? I'm a dummy so, I'd forgotten your orders right away, yeah~?|
|You're the same as ever, Itsuki|
|You're addressing me without honorifics? You're acting like a stranger, aren't you, Nito?|
|I am a stranger now. I had formally withdrawn from "Valkyrie". That's why, I guess, I thought that I'd just give you one last greeting.
If I'm being an eyesore, then I'll leave right away
|Withdrew? Please don't say say such nonsense, I haven't approved it, have I?|
|The student council accepted the papers. Essentially, withdrawing from a "unit" requires the approval of the leader, however
There is also an exception, in the case that the leader isn't doing the responsibilities expected from him.
For a while now, "Valkyrie" hasn't been doing proper activities.
I belong to a "unit" called "Ra*bits" and am holding two positions at the same time, but I'm in the process of making that one my main.
If I get back on track with that, I was wondering if I would go back to "Valkyrie" but...... I can't let go of those kids just yet.
"Ra*bits" has become a very important "unit" to me. I can surely say that those cute children are the apple of my eye.
By all rights and purposes, holding two positions is something that isn't allowed. I needed to formally choose which "unit" I belong to, right away.
I choose "Ra*bits". I'm going to be with those kids.
|Th-that's a lie, ain't it? Nazuna-nii, what's with that? Why didn't ya talk to us about it, such an important thing!
I was hearing rumors that you might be transferring "units" ya know? And that you’re even doin' activities with some first years I dunno.
But, it's prolly just a temporary thing, after all, yeah?
After that, ya'll come back to "Valkyrie" won't ya? I've believed that and was waitin', ya know?
Hey, didn't the three of us get really close to each other?
Though, yeah, lately, Mentor tends ta take breaks...... But, I was working "on-campus part time" and savin' up funds for activities!
I was workin' hard, so I could perform a live with everyone again!
Even today, ya know, we got some work doin' a really small live. Since Mentor won't go on-stage at any cost.
Although, somehow it ended up bein' a real big mess
If only Mentor would recover completely, if he'd get better...... We could make a comeback again! That's right, ya know, we "Valkyrie" are the strongest!
It's not "fine" or "Trickstar" but it's us "Valkyrie" that's surely the top of Yumenosaki Academy!
|I understand how you feel and what you want to say. Surely, we were the sun of Yumenosaki Academy. But that's an old tale, the glory of the past.
"Valkyrie" is finished.
There's not too much time left. Itsuki and I have become third years.
I won't tell you that you wasted your youth, but if it's being bound to that guy for the entire three years, I decline.
I'm not a puppet anymore. I’ll take my life back, even for just a moment.
When I'm with those kids, with "Ra*bits"...... I feel as if I'll be able to smile from the bottom of my heart again.
Even if I end up crying a lot, even if it's harsh, I can keep on living with a smile on my face.
I'm happy with that. Mika-chi...... Kagehira too, if it's alright with you, won't you go with me?
Even if you're with Itsuki, you won’t get anything more from it. Even you've realized it, haven't you? Kagehira, you're not as much of an idiot as you say you are, right?
If there's anything that's bothering you, like a place to live or anything else, I'll give you advice. I can try to help you out, give you support and look after you.
I think of you as a little brother after all.
You too, you should take your life back. Open your eyes, there's no such thing as a comeback for "Valkyrie" anymore.
Itsuki-- our mentor...... He's become useless.
|Ye're wrong! It's not that Mentor's gotten useless or anythin', he's just a little tired and is resting! That's how it is, that's why we gotta support him, don't we!?
Surely we'll make a comeback, coz Mentor's the strongest! Coz, he's invincible, coz Mentor's the top idol of Yumenosaki Academy!
Heey, that's right, isn't it......? Nazuna-nii?
|Hey, say something! You've gotten able to talk so much, you can even fling spiteful words as you leave, at the mentor that did so much for us, haven't ya!?
What's with that, stayin' quiet like an idiot!
Don't screw wit' me, even though I believed in you! Ya traitoorrr!!
|That's enough, Kagehira
How many times have I told you to be silent? It's unpleasant to listen to, just like a lover's quarrel
|Mentor...... But, but! I can't understand at all!|
|I haven't tuned you enough, have I? The time that is spent on it only ends up lost...... At any rate, there's nothing that you can do, Nito.
Repent immediately, and return to my side.
How pitiful of you, Nito, it seems that you've come to a bit of a misunderstanding. You thought that you may be able to become human.
You yearned to be a human that loves and is loved, however
That's right, isn't it? You are my cute Pinocchio...... Even if you continue to lie to yourself about being human, your nose will only grow and you'll no longer be able to move about.
You'll only suffer, struggle, and break.
If you feel that you wish to be saved before then, then please return to my side at any time.
I shall rewind the main springs, carefully remake the strings, and put in the best first rate jewels as your eyes.
|That day won't come, for eternity. Goodbye then, you two.
Really, I don't like things like parting threats. But I watched your live today, it was terrible.
...... If that's the case, then even utter beginners like the "Ra*bits" are superior to you.
Not a single person was smiling. Ah, that's how "Valkyrie" lives have been since long ago, haven’t they?
|It would be good for you to leave immediately without saying such unnecessary things. How unpleasant of you, Nito. Never show your face to me again.
It is a shame, really. You were my best masterpiece, weren't you?
|That's because you made me too well. The doll ended up having a heart.
Goodbye then. This time for sure, it's "farewell." Bye bye...... Mika-chin, Mentor.
