All right, that’s enough for breaks! There’s no point to us moving forward without you, so please come back so we can do our best together, Sensei!

Jin Sagami PE Winter Dialogue Render

Uukh~… I’m supposed to be the mentor, but I feel like I’m being enslaved by my disciples.

Hokuto Hidaka PE Winter Dialogue Render

If you want to be respected as a mentor so much, show us how you live up to the title.

Jin Sagami PE Winter Dialogue Render

No choice, eh… Gotta hang on for a little longer, I guess.

Alright, gather around, kids. I’ll tell you about our coming plans.

We’ve run over the standard lessons every week so far, and we’ve finally become somewhat watchable. I think. Probably.

Hokuto Hidaka PE Winter Dialogue Render

That’s where you were supposed to say it with certainty to boost our confidence.

Jin Sagami PE Winter Dialogue Render

Boy, you ask for a lot… Anyway, we’re going nowhere just sticking to lessons.

With Project-Saga articles getting stale, Mr. Writer’s troubled and I’m getting lazier.

So. I’m thinking we should hold a live next month.

Chiaki Morisawa PE Winter Dialogue Render

Ohh, a live show! So it’s finally time for the world to see us Rain-bows…☆

Tori Himemiya PE Winter Dialogue Render

Uukh. I don’t want anyone to see. I want to bury away the reality that I’ve ever been involved with these people.

Jin Sagami PE Winter Dialogue Render

Well, I’m sure you guys have your own opinions. But you know that live shows are the most straightforward idol activity there is.

We only have the minimum war funds that were provided at our formation, but if we hold official DreamFests, we’ll be rewarded according to our results.

Though in our case, I guess we won’t have much to do with the money even if we get a lot.

But if we have a bigger budget, we won’t have to make do with the rooftop; we can rent official lesson rooms.

The quality of our lessons will increase, and so will our efficiency; we’ll get to produce more results even with our limited time.

Chiaki Morisawa PE Winter Dialogue Render

Hmm. That’s true; even with muscle training, they say your growth rate is higher when you use the newest facilities and equipment.

Hokuto Hidaka PE Winter Dialogue Render

Speaking of which, why are we practicing on the rooftop? Isn’t this place restricted…? Is it okay?

Jin Sagami PE Winter Dialogue Render

Of course. Who do you think I am? I’m a teacher.

A teacher’s an exception, so on the condition that I keep you guys under my watch… I get the permission to rent out this place for our practice.

In fact, since it’s usually off-limits, nobody uses it.

And that means we won’t be bothering other units; it’s very convenient as our practice location.

Tori Himemiya PE Winter Dialogue Render

Nn~ I like it, since the view is nice.

But the only reason we haven’t had problems is that we’ve had nothing but clear weather. Won’t it be really nasty if it rains?

Jin Sagami PE Winter Dialogue Render

Yep. It won’t be for a while, but the rainy season will come.

I wanna gather enough money so we can take shelter right away when the weather isn’t on our side.

We can borrow an empty classroom for no fee,

but since it won’t be soundproof, we’ll be bothering other people, and the environment’s just not made for efficient practice.

Chiaki Morisawa PE Winter Dialogue Render

I see. Live shows will help get us the funds needed to avoid that.

So an investment for the future. I expected no less, Sagami-sensei… always planning for the long run♪

Jin Sagami PE Winter Dialogue Render

Yeah. We can gather an audience by holding a live, which means an increase of fans.

There’s not much point to Rain-bows gaining fans, but you guys gaining higher appraisal and popularity independently shouldn’t be a bad thing at all.

Your units will benefit from it too.

You don’t seem very willing, Himemiya – but I hope you can consider that your drive to continue working as Rain-bows.

Jin Sagami PE Winter Dialogue Render

Plus, it’s a national magazine that serializes Project-Saga.

Depending on how it works out, you could sell your name to a wider audience than just Yumenosaki Academy’s.

This should be especially relevant to Hidaka, who’s gonna compete in SS.

SS gathers fans from every nook of the country, so you’ll benefit from gaining even just a little more fame.

Since the magazine serializing Project-Saga doesn’t just cover idols, you’ll get to appeal to an audience who aren’t usually interested in them.

You don’t usually get to reach out to that demographic if you just do regular work…

So if you can sell your name there, you may get a step or two ahead of other idols.

Hokuto Hidaka PE Winter Dialogue Render

Hmm. I’ve been thinking that we’ll need to lay the groundwork for SS.

Chiaki Morisawa PE Winter Dialogue Render

Right! Necessity is the father of success! When your goal is clear, it becomes a lot easier to move!

Jin Sagami PE Winter Dialogue Render

Well, we’re a temporary unit that came outta nowhere.

We don’t even have funds; calling over a bunch of audience for a showy live’s just a dream within a dream.

So don’t get your head in the clouds. What I just described are things that may be possible if things turn out well.

Tori Himemiya PE Winter Dialogue Render

Hmph. Of course it’ll turn out well. I’m here.

Hokuto Hidaka PE Winter Dialogue Render

That’s a lot of confidence. Well, I don’t have the slightest intention to fail either.

Chiaki Morisawa PE Winter Dialogue Render

Right! I’m getting psyched~! Our current goal is a live show! And the first move we should make to achieve that is… what could it be, Sagami-sensei!?

Jin Sagami PE Winter Dialogue Render

You guys are beyond dependable. Good boys.

I can rest easy thanks to you. When it comes to to preparing for live shows, though, I’m sure you kids have more experience and knowledge than I do.

So specifically, what do you guys think we need to do from now on?

Hokuto Hidaka PE Winter Dialogue Render

You’re so unreliable, Mentor. This is the part where you should boss us around with a multitude of orders.

Jin Sagami PE Winter Dialogue Render

That’s not my character… and you’ve probably forgotten, but I’m a retiree, a relic of the past.

I think we’ll encounter less problems if I emulate your methods, as you kids are still active in the field.

Tori Himemiya PE Winter Dialogue Render

That’s true… Um, so you see, if we’re holding a live show, we’ll have to call in lots of audience first!

President’s very cooperative with Project-Saga for some reason, so he’ll probably promote us if I ask?

Hokuto Hidaka PE Winter Dialogue Render

No, we need to come up with a program first. There’s no point in gathering people if we have nothing to show.

Chiaki Morisawa PE Winter Dialogue Render

Yeah, deciding what we’ll perform will help in the promotion, I’m sure.

Still, we’re a temporary unit. We have no song repertoire to choose from.

Hokuto Hidaka PE Winter Dialogue Render

Right. I’m not sure about using Trickstar or Ryuuseitai’s – our original units’ – songs as they are.

Each unit has different kinds of tunes and dances to suit the group’s style and direction, after all.

Tori Himemiya PE Winter Dialogue Render

Eh~? But I wanna sing fine’s songs!

More like, I haven’t even practiced fine’s songs perfectly, so even if you make a lot of new songs now, I’m not gonna remember all of them!

Hokuto Hidaka PE Winter Dialogue Render

Hmm. Of course. Most of fine’s songs seem difficult.

Chiaki Morisawa PE Winter Dialogue Render

I have an idea. What if we rearrange our existing unit songs to suit Rain-bows’s style?

Of course, we’ll need to get permission from our respective units first.

But it’s fastest and easiest to use the weapon we’re most used to, as a rule.

Hokuto Hidaka PE Winter Dialogue Render

Hmm. So using rearranged versions of our existing songs as our main weapon while adding a few original songs on top of them… would be the safest strategy, I guess?
