Okay. It seems Himemiya is in a better mood now that he’s eating the sweets the transfer student prepared for the meeting…

Let’s pick up where we left off, then.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

…I’m not in a better mood. Ah geez, this is the worst thing ever.

You’re wrong if you think you can sweeten me up with this one piece of candy! Offer up something that matches my nobility or you’re not really trying!

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

So the candy isn’t sweet enough to sweeten you up. Fufu, I got you, Himemiya.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

…? …?

…Do-Don’t talk to me so casually, Hidaka-senpai! You traitor! I haven’t forgiven you, I’ll have you know!

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

There, there… Don’t be so crabby, and just stick with us for the time being, okay Himemiya? Look, here’s a cookie♪

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

I-I said you won’t convince me with sweets! Don’t treat me like a kid!

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Don’t say that. Look, we have konpeito too.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

…? What is that? I’ve never seen it before. Don’t try to feed me something weird like… con-pei-toh? Which country is it from?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

…Fufu♪

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

W-Why did you laugh!? It feels like I’m being made a fool of! Gee~eez! I can’t stand this!

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

Okay okay, let’s end the games here. You guys came here in the middle of your busyness, so let’s be efficient and make the best use of the time we have.

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

Right. Himemiya, I know you don’t like this, but sit tight and listen like a good boy. Tenshouin sent you here with something in mind, right?

So if you don’t carry out the role like he wished, you’re gonna be betraying his expectations of you. …or is it unfair of me to say that?

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

…Mmu. But I am absolutely not happy to do this, okay!? I don’t know what this Project-Saga is, but it’s so like circling on a roundabout!

Ahh geez! I just wanna get this over with and go back to fine’s lessons!

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

Yeah. And for that, we need to discuss our plans forward. Here, have more of these sweets♪

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Hey, why do you keep trying to feed me? Morisawa-senpai, right? You’re stepping out of line! Back off!

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

(Hmm, but that’s Morisawa-senpai for you. He’s skillfully leading Himemiya on. So that’s how you deal with his type… There’s a lot to learn from this.

Is it something like how I give Akehoshi ten yen coins to make him listen?

No… that only works because Akehoshi picks up on the cues and plays along. It’s something like our own little ritual.

It won’t work with just anybody.

I need to study up more on the sure-fire methods that work outside of Trickstar, or I won’t be able to survive in this harsh industry.

Project-Saga should be a good chance. Let’s see what lesson it can offer me on the know-how of idols.)

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

…Yeah, I see each of you have your own thinking. But since you’ve decided to partake, I’ll need you to work hard to some extent.

I pray that Project-Saga won’t really end up being a roundabout detour for you kids.

Once again, thank you very much for choosing to help out with this project.

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Hmph. You’re being unusually upstanding, Sagami-sensei.

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

Got to be, sometimes. Lowering my head is part of my job as an adult, and you guys gotta cultivate the habit of acting polite where it’s due, too.

Anyway, since this is our first meeting for the project… we’ll have introductions and discuss our plan going forward.

And there’s one more thing to decide first of all.

But wait, are you guys really fine with me at the helm? If anyone wanna be the coordinator, I don’t mind stepping down?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

No, you do it, Sensei. You’re the originator, so lead properly at least this once.

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

Right. And a teacher is of course superior to students. Having one at the top and leading is the safest bet – or just the most natural way of things.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Mmu. Well, I’m still the most superior around here.

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

On what basis? You put up a sweeter front back when you just enrolled; is this your true face?

Ah well. Then I’ll be leading. First things first, you guys have the basics of Project-Saga down pat, of course?

What about you, Himemiya? If you don’t know anything, I can give a loose summary.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

I’m okay… sir. I studied the proposal firsthand and asked the president and Yuzuru for things I didn’t know.

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

The two of us were involved since the start of the project, so of course we grasp the overall idea.

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

I also don’t have any problem so far, Sagami-sensei.

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

Ah, honor students. I could just sit back if every student were half as dutiful as you guys.

Anyway, you seem familiar enough with Project-Saga’s general idea, so I’ll be omitting some explanations.

First, I’ll go through our plans for the future, so if you have any questions, just pick a good time to speak, and say it.

Project-Saga is a whimsical project to be serialized in a weekly magazine by a staff member of said magazine company.

He isn’t here right now so I’ll have to leave his introduction for later, but I’ll be referring to him as our ‘Mr. Writer’ for convenience.

Mr. Writer will be visiting once a week to collect data for the week’s article or take photos for it.

Then he’ll write an article and finish it before the deadline, give it to us for the final check, and if there’s no problem, it’ll be put in the magazine.

The articles will be about the Legendary Idol… well, me.

About retired idols like me making a comeback and guiding the younger generation. He’ll be making a story out of it – a dramatization.

Like an inspirational teacher story? Or mentor-disciple story, was it?

Anyway, something like that will be held in several idol training schools and agencies all over the country, at the same time.

But for now, I’m the only Legendary Idol… the only retiree participating. So we’ll be the only ones featured.

If the negotiations go well, there will be more and more ‘mentor-disciples’ out there later.

And considering the number of pages, we’ll be less and less featured.

In other words, we won’t have to work too hard, eventually.

But since we’re the only ones right now, we need to come up with some sort of drama.

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Even if you tell us to make drama… how does that happen, specifically?

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

Nn~ Hidaka, I heard you had a hard time gathering comrades. I think he’ll be making a dramatization out of that for starters.

Mr. Writer will probably visit you to ask some stuff later, so respond to him properly then.

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Hmm. All right, I understand.
