By the way, what kind of person is this writer?

We’ll probably be in for a long ride, so I’d like to know his basic profile from the outset.

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

Uh, he’s a young kid from a magazine company? Sorry, this little old man can’t tell apart kids of that age anymore.

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Then how did you become a teacher, Sagami-sensei? Doesn’t your job demand an eye for people?

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

Nn~ When I was active, I could remember the face and name of each of my fans.

I think my head exploded from that and it shaved some cells off my brain. That’s why I’m so bad at remembering things now.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Hmph, I can’t believe you’ve gone senile at this age… sir.

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

No need to force yourself to speak politely. We’re kinda a makeshift, ragtag group here, but we’re still a team that’s gotta support one another.

Let’s speak frankly; that’s easier on me.

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

That helps me too, but is it really okay to be so… not serious?

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

It’s fine, 's fine. This is a silly low-budget project, we’re just gonna tire ourselves out being stiff.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Mmu. Why do I have to get involved in such a cheap event…?

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

Hmm. So this writer only visits once a week?

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

Yup. Well, it’s always been common knowledge that magazines don’t sell; and they seem to have their human resources cut due to the publishing slump.

The magazine companies don’t have enough people to write their articles.

Mr. Writer seems to have it tough, writing a bunch of other articles despite being presumably a newbie.

So he can’t pour all his attention on just us or Project-Saga.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Hmph. Cheap plan, meager staff; this project can’t look any more low-budget.

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

Isn’t that nice though? Gives us a chance to work our way from square one. I think this kind of hard work is important too, Himemiya.

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

Smartypants… Anyway Morisawa, I still don’t get your previous question.

What’s wrong with Mr. Writer only coming once a week?

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

No, it just sounds hard, writing an article based only on the data he got on that day.

If possible, how about we make our own activity report to be handed over when he comes?

I have only layman knowledge on magazines and articles so I’m not too sure, but wouldn’t the writing process be smoother with more materials?

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

Aah, right. Maybe we’re meddling too much, but when you put yourself in the shoes of the guy who has to write…

Having access to that kind of report sounds super handy.

Transfer Student, can you put together something like that – even just whenever you have time?

The rest of us need to actively work to have anything written at all, so it’ll help if we can leave this to you.

Well, we can’t decide this on our own, so we gotta confirm this with Mr. Writer first, of course.

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

Oh, the transfer student seems thrilled. Do you like writing this kind of thing?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Fufu. Come to think of it, you always scribble in your notepad for every little thing, Transfer Student.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Nn~ Well, that sounds like a job for servants. …Write me in a cute, positive light, okay?

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

Ahaha. We need to do proper work first before any reports or articles get written, though.

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

Hmm. It’s a weekly magazine, so we’ll be serialized weekly too… and that means we need to do at least one thing every week, huh?

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

Yup.

Well, we can also do one big thing that gets split up into several articles to save us a few weeks’ worth of work.

That, and your respective unit schedules, will be set for later discussion.

Let’s try to gather once a week… or at least somewhat regularly, if that’s hard.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Geh~ So this isn’t just a one-time thing? I’m sick of it already.

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

Don’t say that. I think it’s pretty fun, like gathering in a secret hideout.

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

Well, just enjoy the ride.

The content of our work is free for us to decide, as in the company didn’t make any particular demand, so… whaddya guys want?

I personally want us to do something relatively idol-like.

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

That’s incredibly vague. What’s idol-like? Live shows?

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

Lives are difficult, budget-wise… but a pseudo-live is possible.

All we need is to borrow the auditorium when no one’s using it and sing and dance there, after all.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Nn, but if we’re holding a live show, I wanna do it big and call lots of people in.

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

Ohh, that’s great, Himemiya! Keep at it and assert your opinions more!

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

You’re such a pain! Stop getting in my hair!

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

Fufu. Anyway, having a teacher for a member makes us an unusual case, but…

How about we register ourselves as a temporary unit?

Then we can submit proposals and receive funding from the student council when they’re accepted.

We can hold small live shows, so I think it’ll widen the variation of what we can do.

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

Nn~ I think budget should go to students, but that’s not a bad idea.

Honestly the funding from the magazine company is worth so little I don’t think it’ll take us anywhere.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Umm? Wait a second, what’s a ‘temporary unit’? We can only be part of one unit at a time, right?

Y-You’re telling me to resign from fine? I’m never doing that, you hear me!?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Aah… that’s a term I miss. You don’t hear it a lot these days, but ‘temporary unit’ is a system that exists, huh.

It’s a unit formed temporarily for jobs that last for a limited period, right?

So we can be part of one without having to resign from our current units.

We still need to register for formation and get officially approved by the school, though.

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

Mm-hmm. Might be a good idea to give it a careful consideration. Heck, it’s convenient for moving along with Project-Saga.

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

…Because…?

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

Well. I said we have one thing to decide first of all, didn’t I?

Actually, the company asked us to decide on a name, a word to depict our team.

Which translates to ‘come up with a unit name!’, obviously.

‘Sagami Jin and His Disciples’ is unappealing on top of a mouthful, so apparently, it’s not ideal for writing articles.

So let’s take the chance to come up with an official name and make ourselves a temporary unit; write up a formation document, submit it, and get us that budget.

I bet that’s going to make future activities a whole lot easier.

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

Fufu. And it’s kind of idol-like. Stories about idols typically start with the characters coming up with a name, after all.

Jin Sagami School Dialogue Render

Do they? So you watch dramas other than tokusatsu, Morisawa?

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

Ahaha. TV dramas and books, actually… Consuming novels and comics – old or new, western or eastern – have been my hobby for a long time.

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

That’s a surprise; I guess you can’t judge a book by its cover… I also often read books on the the train to school, so maybe we’ll have a lot to talk about, Morisawa-senpai.

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

Oh, really? What genres do you like, Hidaka?

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

…I think we’ve strayed from the topic. Weren’t we thinking of a unit name?

I wanna get this over with so I can return to fine’s lesson, so focus!

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

Ahaha, we got scolded. But Himemiya is right; let’s come up with a unit name first.

Anyone have a good idea?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Hmm… this is hard. I’m not very good with creative work.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Umm. I had almost nothing to do with idols until I enrolled here, so I don’t know much. How do people usually decide on unit names?

Do they all discuss it like this?

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

I wonder?

Ryuuseitai already existed since long before I enrolled, so I didn’t name it… I’m not too sure.

Hidaka, how did you guys decide on ‘Trickstar’?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

…Huh? I can’t remember.

We just had the name somehow. Who came up with it again…?

I think we were gathering like always, our talk heated up like always… and we just went ‘Let’s make it Trickstar!’ along the way?

Chiaki Morisawa School Dialogue Render

Ahaha. That sounds like you guys alright.
