Tori Himemiya Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

That’s incredible… Harukawa-kun – who doesn’t seem to be in his best shape – and the senpai with the black hair both make mistakes sometimes…

But you almost wouldn’t notice, because Kunugi-sensei always hides it from the audience in such a natural way, or makes it seem like part of the performance.

Isn’t that a really high-grade skill?

Yuzuru from my place will do the same thing during fine’s performances sometimes, but that’s because he’s like my family, and he understands me…

So how can Kunugi-sensei do it for a temporary unit formed on the fly, made up of people of different ages and positions from him?

Hokuto Hidaka Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Right. That’s craftsmanship. He’s the opposite of Sagami-sensei, who leads at the front and pulls us along; the ‘support type’, if you will.

When you’re an idol, you’re bound to lay your ego bare onstage. But that’s not the case at all with Kunugi-sensei.

It’s incredible; he’s completely transformed into a stagehand… like a ninja.

Tori Himemiya Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

I’m seeing him more like an experienced butler.

Jin Sagami Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

It’s like you kids are watching sports or something.

I always think this but keep your talking in moderation; the guests may not think well of it… and it cuts off your concentration.

Look at me, I reached my limit in just one song. Boy, I’m not cut out for acting out the role of an idol anymore.

Hokuto Hidaka Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

You reached your limit too fast. Hang in there; you’re not ‘acting out’ being an idol, by the way – you are one.

Jin Sagami Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Sure, sure… but seriously, I just have less stamina than you young’uns.

I took up running too, but I guess I can’t restore everything in just a month.

The next song will turn the spotlight on you ‘disciples’ so the audience can get to know you. And while leading all the attention on you, I’ll step back and rest for a bit.

It’s a strategy to keep me from pushing myself too much, hitting a wall halfway, and making a mess of the endgame.

Hokuto Hidaka Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Right. You explained before, so we know. I personally want you to hang on from start to finish though.

We don’t know when you’ll ever get to stand on stage again.

Tori Himemiya Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Yeah, why not push yourself to the limit while you have the chance? Won’t it turn out to be a good memory to look back on~?

Chiaki Morisawa Rain-bows Dialogue Render

Now, now. Don’t force Sensei too much. Let’s try to hold on with just us youngsters.

Tori Himemiya Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Sagami-sensei’s plenty young too… But well, of course I have to be the one standing out the most. Do your best as my prop, Sensei♪

Jin Sagami Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Prop… Ahh, so that’s what this is. I think I got it. You’re the same do-gooder as always, Akiyan.

Tori Himemiya Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

? What are you mumbling? Anyway, I’m gonna cart off all your old fans, Sensei♪

Hokuto Hidaka Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Yeah. I’ll have some too as my pay for helping out with Project-Saga.

Jin Sagami Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Sure. I mean, I can’t just say ‘go ahead’ and hand over my fans, but you guys gotta be rewarded for your efforts.

Really, good work sticking with me for this one month. Thanks, kids.

Chiaki Morisawa Rain-bows Dialogue Render

We’re only done with the first song – please don’t make it feel like it’s all over.

The real show… no, the real battle is just about to begin.

Jin Sagami Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

I know. A lot of my fans came to see me, more than I imagined.

And that makes me happy, so I’m gonna work myself just enough to not disappoint those wonderful people.

Chiaki Morisawa Rain-bows Dialogue Render

Fufu. You seem to be in a good mood, Sensei. I was worried, you know; it seems you retired after a bitter experience…

So I thought that maybe it was scary for you to come back to the stage.

It’s natural to feel scared. You may be a school teacher, much older than us, who’s gone through a lot more than we have…

But you’re still a human being, so it’s natural to not want to go back to a place that held an awful memory for you.

Jin Sagami Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Yeah. To be frank, I was a bit scared. But turns out it was my needless worry. Somehow, I feel like I just got reunited with my first love after many years.

I was an idol who made my fans fall in love with me, but I wonder who’s actually head over heels for who…

Uh, is that an outdated expression? Doesn’t click with modern youths?

… Oops. Seems like Ba-barrier’s turn is done. That practice song was supposed to be a short one, anyway.

We’re gonna prepare for our next song. Sure is busy and a lot of work, eh?

Chiaki Morisawa Rain-bows Dialogue Render

Is that so? Performing interchangeably is the standard for battle-style DreamFests… I’m used to it, and I think so are Hidaka and the rest of the students.

Jin Sagami Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

I see; of course… I guess the times have really changed. Various idols are jumbled together.

Well, I like a field of flowers more than just a huge, pretty flower by itself.

What you currently have is a lot better. I’m envious, really.

Chiaki Morisawa Rain-bows Dialogue Render

Ahaha. Then why not make a real comeback and work again as an idol? From now on, and always!

Jin Sagami Rainbow Stage Dialogue Render

Nope, impossible. My era ended long ago, so I leave the rest to you youths.

I don’t have enough life in me to start a new love, so I’m gonna be a middle-aged man playing matchmaker for the young’uns.

…Sounds like a pleasurable way to live out the rest of my life, right?
