Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

I-I can’t follow at all… Uhh, umm, what’s that mean? Harukawa-kun, do ya know?

Sora Harukawa Summer School Dialogue Render

<HiHi~♪> Sora doesn’t know what it means, but Sensei is giving off a fun ‘color’~ It’s usually hidden somewhere hard to see, but it shines with seven colors today!

Sensei, is that your true ‘color’?

Akiomi Kunugi School Dialogue Render

What are you talking about? Anyway, as I’ve said before… I’ll need you to take part in a campus part-time job.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

I-It feels like there’s not goin’ to be a choice… Do we have a right to refuse?

I wanna get more activity funds, so of course I’m happy t’participate in campus part-time jobs, but~?

Akiomi Kunugi School Dialogue Render

You can refuse, but I don’t recommend it.

Mikejima-kun, Kagehira-kun, Harukawa-kun… the academy keeps a watchful eye on you due to your repetitive problematic behaviors.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Eh, no way? But I swear I haven’t done anythin’ wrong…

Akiomi Kunugi School Dialogue Render

I know. But even when you haven’t done anything bad, those who provide no benefit to the big picture are weeded out; that’s simply how it goes in the world of adults.

This isn’t compulsory education either, so they can’t afford to keep freeloaders around forever.

Kagehira-kun, you’ve been skipping classes to do part-time jobs, haven’t you? You are what society normally calls a delinquent.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

De-Delinquent? That’s not it, I just need to gather funds f’r Valkyrie…

I always try to attend classes too; even if I usually get too tired an’ end up sleepin’ through 'em.

Akiomi Kunugi School Dialogue Render

Take the classes properly; at least study your tuition’s worth.

Consider the feelings of the teachers who have to drone on and on in front of sleeping children because they’re duty-bound to hold a lecture.

It isn’t only aggravating and saddening – it feels hollow after a while.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Uukh. I’m sorry… Th-That’s such a deserved reprimand I can’t argue back.

Akiomi Kunugi School Dialogue Render

Well, you are still among the better ones, Kagehira-kun.

The bigger problem here is Mikejima-kun, who has probably broken about every school rule there is, and Harukawa-kun, who keeps doing bizarre things such as climbing the school walls.

Madara Mikejima Summer School Dialogue Render

Hahaha! [Free and uncontrolled]! I won’t be stopped from acting however I want!

Sora Harukawa Summer School Dialogue Render

<HuHu~♪> I’m sorry! When scolded, apologizes!

But it doesn’t say anywhere in the school rules… that we must use the corridors and stairs during transit instead of climbing the walls, right~?

Akiomi Kunugi School Dialogue Render

Well, you two certainly know how to argue back… Don’t misunderstand. I am not your enemy.

In fact, I am talking to you because I want to protect you and do something for you.

The three of you have some form of connection with that ‘Five Oddballs’ group, yes?

In the last quarter of last year, that name was another word for ‘troublemakers’. The academy doesn’t think well of them.

The idol trade is all about fame, and faith. It isn’t smart to let any source of bad reputation roam free.

Although the Five Oddballs are incredibly excellent idols, so the academy seems to be unwilling to let go of them either.

However, as people related to them, you may turn into targets of criticism and attack.

You do not want to cause problems for each of your important people, I believe? Then reflect on your actions and fix your behaviors.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Akiomi Kunugi School Dialogue Render

Anyway. If you accept the part-time job I’m about to offer you, I promise to have your backs.

As long as you don’t cross the line, I can feign ignorance towards any of your problematic behaviors.

I am in charge of student guidance – so I can offer you my connivance, to some extent.

Madara Mikejima Summer School Dialogue Render

Oh, a backroom deal? What a bad, bad teacher you are; I don’t dislike that♪

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Eh, eh? What’s that mean? I still can’t follow!

Madara Mikejima Summer School Dialogue Render

Hahaha. This is what Kunugi-sensei is saying… if we lend him a hand, he’ll write off all of our problematic behaviors so far.

Akiomi Kunugi School Dialogue Render

I’m not writing them off. But well, I will be lenient.

I will also negotiate with the other teachers and convince them – no… I will become your ally.

Madara Mikejima Summer School Dialogue Render

And you ask us to be your soldiers in exchange? Using someone’s weakness against them for your exploits – that’s what the mafia does, you knoow♪

Akiomi Kunugi School Dialogue Render

It doesn’t sound like a joke coming from you, Mikejima-kun.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Nngaah~? I don’t really understand, but that smells like serious trouble! Wh-What are you gonna make us do… Kunugi-sensei?

I’ll hafta say no to gettin’ involved in crimes! I don’t want Oshi-san t’get a scratch on 'is record because of me!

Akiomi Kunugi School Dialogue Render

Fufu. How could I involve my dearest students in criminal acts? I’m in the position where I must actively stop you when I catch you in one. Don’t make light of me.

Anyway, the content of this part-time job is easy. I need you to form a temporary unit.

The unit name will need to be thought through together, but I plan for us to use ready-made songs and costumes…

So hopefully, it won’t be too much of a workload for you.

Sora Harukawa Summer School Dialogue Render

Nnn, ‘temporary unit’? Not a word Sora’s heard~?

Akiomi Kunugi School Dialogue Render

Right, first years would have no idea, I suppose… I will explain it to you later. However, this temporary unit will have to perform in a certain live show next month.

Until then, you are prohibited from taking other on-campus part-time jobs; you will devote yourselves to unit lessons.

Of course you don’t mind? You will have to take more idol-like jobs like this, instead of cleaning the rooms or doing laundry.

I will also pay you the money you probably would have gained had you spent that period doing part-time jobs.

And as I’ve mentioned, I will overlook your problematic behaviors, to some extent.

What do you think? This isn’t a bad deal at all, is it? Will you accept?

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Eeehh~ Honestly I don’t wanna be part o’ another unit besides Valkyrie… but based on the talk so far, I probably can’t refuse?

Akiomi Kunugi School Dialogue Render

Why, yes. This isn’t a suggestion; it’s an order. You must obey your teacher, you see.

Madara Mikejima Summer School Dialogue Render

Hahaha! [What arrogance]! It makes me want to resist for no reason, but there does seem to be no disadvantage to accepting?

Even if it doesn’t settle well with me to have my free will stolen away and dance to someone else’s tune.

I don’t mind agreeing. I was thinking to comply with the unit system and work in one just once, rather than just observing from the side.

Experience is the best teacher, right? I’m sure it won’t go to waste.

Know your enemy, know yourself, and you shall win a hundred battles. I was thinking to get a direct feel of the logic that currently governs this academy.

Sora Harukawa Summer School Dialogue Render

Nn~ Sora will be happy just being able to sing and dance while having fun, but can Sora confirm this with Shisho first?

Discussing with Shisho before making hard decisions has become Sora’s style lately~

Akiomi Kunugi School Dialogue Render

Yes, well, I don’t mind if you take it home with you and think it through first.

Just keep in mind that the live show is in a month; we don’t have much time to spare.

If you spend too much time thinking, we’ll lose the time we could’ve used on doing lessons, so I advise you to give me an answer as soon as possible.

Still… do give it proper thought before making the decision. I said it was an order, but the freedom to comply with it or not still lies with you.

I can force you… but this time, I won’t.

For the time being, this case doesn’t seem to demand such desperate measures. Not a do-or-die that will decide the direction of anyone’s life; nothing but a comparatively irrelevant, silly story.
