Among the types of Dream Fes, the second highest ranking performance is the S1. They're planning to hold one in two weeks time.

An S1 is held once every season. If we miss out on it this time, the next will be several months from now...

We could wait for that, but if we let that much time pass, the influence of the student council will likely strengthen that much more as well.

Time is not on our side. I expect that things will become more and more disadvantageous for us.

Even the student council president, who is absent due to his long hospitalization, might be back by then.

At this point, the student council is already way too powerful. But if the one that they nicknamed the "Emperor" were to return...

We'll lose our chance to succeed.

The fact is, if we could, we want to deal a crushing blow to the student council at the S1 in two weeks.

Oh right. I haven't told you the details, have I, Transfer Student?

I'm sorry. I'll explain it one more time.

An S1 isn't just within the school. It is a large-scale Dream Fes where "everyday people" such as students from neighboring schools and residents from around the region are invited to come join the audience.

The Dream Festivals that rank lower than S2 are events restricted to within the school.

In our current state, there is no one that can go against the overwhelmingly powerful student council. It will surely be a victory for them.

However, in an S1, with "everyday audience members", a lot of uncertain factors are added in.

Unlike the students of Yumenosaki Academy, who willingly obey the student council, the "everyday audience members" will vote according to their own preferences.

A swing vote, so to speak. If we can scrape that together, theoretically speaking, there may even be a possibility that we will gain victory against the student council.

And then, if they are defeated once, the power of the student council will collapse.

Even the student council can lose. They can be defeated. If that fact is brought to light, support for the student council will probably waver.

It's like a people's revolution to overthrow an absolute monarchy. If they know that their opponents are humans that can be beaten too, they can fight.

It will give hope to everyone in Yumenosaki Academy, who could do nothing but bow down before the student council. The S1 is our best chance for that.

Be that as it may, we just have the "possibility of winning". Of course, it is not the case that we "absolutely can win".

The student council is also strong without equal, whether individually or as a unit. Even if we fought them on equal terms, there's absolutely no guarantee that we could win.

With our current ability, If we challenged them to an ordinary match, it would likely result in us getting kicked around.

Therefore, we need a plan and, if we could manage it, an excellent commander.

We need a guarantee that we can win for sure.

The student council hasn’t even thought of someone committing treason against them, so our "first strike" will certainly be a surprise attack.

With an unforeseen attack, we'll drive them out of power. Seeing as we can't ambush them a second time, we want to choose the right time for it.

If we aren't able to do that at the approaching S1, we will have to wait instead for the next chance.

The positive proof that we can win... If we don't find that, we'll gracefully forfeit the S1 this time and wait quietly for our chance.

I want to set up some guidelines to lead us in that direction, but... I want to hear your opinions too. What do you think?

I see... It's ridiculous that you guys would think about it seriously, so I'd like you to "pretend to think about it" at least.
