The next day, early morning
Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

Morning~♪

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render

Ah! Morning, Ukki~☆

…Oh? Ukki, is that rubbish stuck to your butt?

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

Eh, no way! Where? Where is it? Sheesh, I always try to make sure to look tidy too…

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render

Chance time~!

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

Uhyaa!?

Eh?! What’s up with you all of a sudden, Akehoshi-kun? Why did you steal my glasses?

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render

Hokke, how’s my time!?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Sixteen point seven seconds, approximate.

Unfortunately, you couldn’t set a new record. Addressing Yuuki to steer his attention somewhere else was a good idea, but it also ate up your time.

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render

Tch~ Wrong strategy! Morning Ukki is full of holes and distracted already, so I could’ve gone straight for his glasses without tricks.

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

Uhh, sorry! What are we playing now? I’m not being bullied, am I!?

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render

No, no. Sorry, Ukki, there’s a reason behind this—

…whoops?

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

Right, I’d love to hear your explanation, but I need those glasses back first! This is a tool I actually need to go about life, so don’t make a toy out of it, okay~?

Ah, now I can see clearly.

Huh? Akehoshi-kun, Hidaka-kun, and Transfer student-chan… Why are you guys crowding there?

Is Trickstar’s next job decided, so you’re having a meeting about it?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

No, it’s a personal job for the transfer student and I… or something to that effect. Yesterday, our homeroom Sagami-sensei invited us to join this plan called Project-Saga.

I discussed it with the transfer student over the phone even after we returned home, and we decided to accept and see how far we can go, but…

It’s an unusual matter, so we weren’t sure where to start.

While reading the proposal together and arguing over this-and-that, Akehoshi came up to us, which brings us to the present.

This still counts as work, so don’t be a nuisance, Akehoshi.

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render

Eh~? Don’t leave me out of your circle! That’s lonely! I’m gonna make myself useful so don’t abandon me, Master~!

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Who’s your master? You only ever say unnecessary things, so getting your opinion will just make things more tangled.

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render

Uuhh, so cold! Ice-Hokke! Ukki, warm me up~!

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

Wawa? Ahaha, don’t be so mean to Akehoshi-kun now… okay, Hidaka-kun?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

I’m not being mean to him. Project-Saga is in the end an optional job personally assigned to us…

I don’t want the whole of Trickstar to end up joining, as it’ll steer us off our course.

But I’m aware that I might’ve been too cold. Here, Akehoshi. I’ll give you a ten yen coin, so cheer up.

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render

Yay, I love you, Hokke! I got my sparkle for the day~☆

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

Fufu. Do they hit off really badly or really well, I wonder…

Anyway, I’ve heard of this Project-Saga – isn’t it that thing? The plan that’ll be serialized in a magazine? About reviving past idols, or something?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

You know about it, Yuuki? You’re well-informed as ever.

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

No, it’s a coincidence. I still get sent complimentary copies of magazines because I used to work as a child model.

Just a look at them used to send a chill up my spine, but I’ve grown to be able to flip through them lately…

I skim through them sometimes, like when my game is loading.

This Project-Saga seems to be a plain, low-budget project, but the staff roster has some pretty influential people of the magazine industry.

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Yeah, it seems so. Sagami-sensei talked about one being his benefactor.

That lazybones is trying to put a serious effort into something for once…

I have regrettably been in his care, so I’d like to help out with what I can.

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render

Oh right, Hokke. You said about having known Sagami-chan for a long time?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

? You haven’t, Akehoshi?

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render

Eh!? What makes you think Sagami-chan and I knew each other?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

You attach ‘chan’ to his name and act really close with him… I thought you’d had interactions with him through your parents, like me.

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render

Nn~ My dad wasn’t the type to bring anything work-related home.

He never introduced his coworkers, and he used up all of his few breaks to spend time with family.

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

I see. My family’s the total opposite… Even on the rare instances my parents are home, they still work, and they invite work partners over for afterparties a lot.

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

Ahaha. And those parties get broadcast on TV, right?

I looked it up out of interest once. You were so cute as a little boy, Hidaka-kun…♪

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Don’t look it up. Having your past investigated never makes for a nice feeling.
