… Sora-san, are you okay? What’s wrong? You’re tottering.

Sora Harukawa Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Yes. Very sorry. Sora hasn’t been in front of such a large crowd so it’s making Sora dizzy. There are so many colors swirling around, it’s hard to process…

Right now, they’re all directed at Rain-bows, at Sagami-sensei so… it’s still relatively okay~

When it becomes our turn and Sora can’t be of much use, then sorry.

Madara Mikejima Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

(Hmm. Sora-san always seems so otherworldly and full of energy, so I let my guard down…

But he’s another first year unused to going on stage. There’s his ‘predisposition’ too, making him feel all the more groggy.

He’ll probably get used to it with more experience. But I don’t think we can push him to it today.

No. Maybe it was to give this boy the ‘experience’ he absolutely needed, that Kunugi-sensei made him part of the team… Nothing beats real battle experience.)

It’ll be okay. I’ll assist you, so just do what you can, Sora-san.

If it starts looking impossible, give me a signal, and I’ll help you retreat while hiding you from the audience’s eyes.

Sora Harukawa Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Yes… I’m sorry, Mr. Giant.

Madara Mikejima Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Not a problem. I grew this big all so I could carry you children off to a safe place, you know? …There’s no problem at all, so don’t make that face.

In front of the audience, we’ve got to keep a smile.

Sora Harukawa Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Yes. Ehehe, Sora feels a little better. Mr. Giant is so dependable~♪

Madara Mikejima Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Hahaha. Aren’t I? ‘Dependable like a mama’ ☆

Sora Harukawa Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

? Is there really a saying that goes like that?

Anyway, Mika-chan-san seems to be having a much tougher time than Sora, so can you help him~?

Madara Mikejima Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Oh? Doesn’t that child hate being referred to by his given name?

Sora Harukawa Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

<HeHe~♪> But Mika-chan-san gives off a color that seems discomforted or in pain whenever he’s called something like ‘Onii-chan’, you see?

Madara Mikejima Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

(Huh… Come to think of it, Mika-san used to call Nazuna-san ‘Nazuna-nii’, didn’t he?

Is he still dragging that out, thus his mixed feelings about the nickname?

Though that doesn’t seem to be his only reason for looking unwell right now.)

Mika-san? Are you okay? You’re wearing a glum look… If you’ve got any worries, feel free to tell Mama all about it♪

Mika Kagehira Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Ngah!? Don’t suddenly come closer – ya gave me a shock!

Madara Mikejima Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Hahaha. Sorry, sorry. You’re such a scaredy-cat, Mika-san.

Mika Kagehira Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Yeah. I’m sorry f’r bein’ such a coward… but don’t worry about me too much.

All my pushin’ myself over the limit is just comin’ back to bite me, and it pretty much like, always feels as if I’m comin’ down with a cold anyway.

It’s the same thing as always. The difference is that right now, I’m on a stage where Oshi-san isn’t, and it’s makin’ me feel weird…

Feels like, I’m doin’ something that should be chastised.

I never imagined anything like this. It’s like I’m seein’ a dream; I’m not used to this ‘normal idol’ stuff either.

It’s as if my soul’s been transferred to another person. Like I’m not the one makin’ my body move…

Like I’m watchin’ my body, manipulated like a marionette, from a place far away, ya know?

Madara Mikejima Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Hahaha. That’s probably what Nazuna-san felt when he was in Valkyrie.

Mika Kagehira Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Nazuna-nii did…?

Madara Mikejima Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Yeah, though I can only imagine. I’m not Nazuna-san, so I can’t speak for his feelings.

But I can say what I see: that you’re making the same face as he was back then.

Jin Sagami Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

♪~♪~♪

Madara Mikejima Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

…Whoops, I guess Rain-bows’ first song will be finished soon.

Their strategy seemed to be to sing a rearrangement of Sagami-sensei’s hit song to make the fans happy first of everything. It’s a famous song everybody knows, so it’s easy to tell when it ends.

Mika Kagehira Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Eh, really? I’ve never heard this song.

Madara Mikejima Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Mika-san, where in the undiscovered backwoods did you hail from?

Well, it’s from a slightly different generation, so I guess kids who don’t know it simply don’t. Anyway… we’re up next, so if possible, let’s get our focus back on track.

Mika Kagehira Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Ah, yes! Thanks a bunch, Mikejima-senpai, for askin’ how I’m doin’… I think ya sorta helped me wake up!

I’m gonna give it all I’ve got~♪ Can’t be hurting Valkyrie or Oshi-san’s name, anyway!

Madara Mikejima Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

(Hahaha. So that’s what drives you; how enviably simple. Honestly, if only… I could live like that too.)

Akiomi Kunugi Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

You children, are you ready? We couldn’t hold a rehearsal, but you understand what you have to do, right?

Sora Harukawa Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Yes! Sora is fine~ Once Sora gets to singing and dancing, he’ll be full of energy☆

Akiomi Kunugi Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Excellent. …Mikejima-kun, that was very nice. I was on edge while watching, but you did well helping your juniors stand up again.

So how is it? Isn’t being part of a unit interesting?

Madara Mikejima Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

…I wonder; I’ll have to postpone the answer. For now, there are so many things to look out for that I don’t feel like going though it ever again.

Still, a festival’s more fun with more people.

Come, come, it’s a festivaaaal! Let’s raise the mikoshi up to the sky, and go beyond the rainbow!
