Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

What is the transfer student doing? Is she playing around with the twins?

Rei Sakuma School Dialogue Render

It is an evaluation, to put it roughly.

Even I, who is called the walking encyclopedia of the academy, have absolutely no data on that young lady, the transfer student.

I am having her show me her ability and what sort of person she is.

However, she is truly an amateur, isn't she? Her skill as a singer, her dancing ability, all of it is lacking.

She is not an "idol", but more like a "producer". It can't be helped, I suppose?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Did you kidnap the transfer student so that you could find fault with her?

Rei Sakuma School Dialogue Render

There is that as well. It was mostly an opportunity to apologize for my child's rudeness, though.

I had told her that I wanted to see her true ability, thus she is obediently meeting that request.

What a good child, isn't she? Earnest and serious... Enthusiastic. Even though she is unable to do anything and does not know anything, she is searching desperately for what she can do herself.

Yesterday, in the infirmary... she was listening to you talk to yourself.

You are Hidaka-kun, aren't you? It seems that she heard the grief in your soul, you see?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

... You were awake at that time, Transfer Student?

Rei Sakuma School Dialogue Render

Indeed. She learned that behind the thick ice of your exterior was a hidden passion. It seems she was unable to ignore that.

She is a kind child, isn't she? It's as if, right now, her "only redeeming factor is her kindness" and yet...

Are you going to embarrass such a good child? Will you make her work hard all by herself?

Were you not going to fight together? Did you not want to become allies?

Before you solicit me, isn't there something that you must do? You boys are powerless, foolish, reckless, and yet I believe you have acquired hope.

Please show me that hope as well.

On her own, the young miss transfer student is helpless. She cannot shine. However, you all are not alone. You are a unit, you children with a star in your name.

Show me your brilliance, as Trickstar.

She will surely make that sparkle several times, or tens of times more. She is the catalyst, the light of hope. You cannot lose that, you know?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

... That's right, isn't it? I'm sorry, Transfer Student.

Again, I was in a hurry and had mistaken what I should be looking at.

Now, I will look only at you.

I will live up to your feelings. I am moved by them, grateful for them, and I will treasure them.

We will reflect them back and amplify them, and someday we will give off a light that will illuminate everything.

If you want us to sing and dance, then we'll show that to you, too. Please evaluate us, Sakuma-senpai.

The performance I demonstrate to you is the transfer student's performance. She is our "producer" and I am the "idol", after all.

If I was able to shine, it's because she made me shine.

If you are to ascertain her true ability, then do it after you see all that I have. It shouldn’t be too much of a delay, and I shall give it my absolute maximum.

We'll show you our real ability, Sakuma Rei of the Three Oddballs.

... I’ve kept you waiting, haven’t I, Transfer Student? I'm sorry that I was late.

Let's sing together and move forward. You're our star of hope.

Let's walk together, shoulder to shoulder. I want to move forward, together with you, if you'll allow it.

Subaru Akehoshi School Dialogue Render

Me too, me too! Don't make me tell you over and over, don't keep Transfer Student all to yourself!

Don't take all the responsibility on your own. How many times have I told you that, too? Listen properly to what other people say, Hokke~!

One by one, we're all tiny lights! But, if we all gather together, even the sun will look dark! That's Trickstar...☆

I mean, I wanna dance and sing with Transfer Student, too ♪

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

Ah, me too! Even if it's not much, I'll offer all of my ability!

I'm in the same boat as Transfer Student-chan too, not knowing anything, so I think it'd be good for us to find what's important to us, together!

Rei Sakuma School Dialogue Render

Kukuku. Good, good. It is nice to be energetic and vigorous, isn't it? ♪

Rather, this is the point where I want to tell you "I was waiting for this."

Ah, I feel young again. How nostalgic. It is youth, a brilliance that has long been lost from this academy ♪

Shine your light on me to your heart's content. It is my long-cherished desire, even if it should reduce me to ash. I have lived on through the ugliness of old age to see it.

Kukuku, people are not meant to live long lives. ♪
