Ahaha, it gets you really confused, huh~? I get it. Sorry, I'm the only one that's gotten all excited.

I've had difficulties dealing with it, despite myself, since the old days. When someone's gotten depressed, or worried, or feeling uneasy. I don't really get it so I can't sympathize.

I don't think it's that I'm lacking as a person in some way... Some part of my emotions, it’s just plain missing.

Because of that, I often end up hurting the ones around me, y'know?

But, it's better to be all cheery instead of feeling depressed.

Better to laugh than to cry. Better to be bright than gloomy.

Instead of being all depressed, it's better to sparkle!

I thought that was only natural, and that everyone was like that.

But, it wasn’t like that. Everybody else worries and gets troubled, and there are even cases in which they’re comfortable with that.

As for me, I didn't know that.

Because of that, a long time ago... Before I first met Hokke~ and the others, when I was a first year, I was isolated in my class.

I'd thought that everyone was the same as me, and kept on telling them "Let's laugh and have fun, let's shine and be merry."

Even now, I haven't lost that habit. Even though Hokke~ and the others taught me that that kind of thing can be a burden for some people, too.

I really don't know. I still don’t have any real feelings yet.

I'm a little bit sad about that. This is probably what they'd call "sadness". I didn’t know what that emotion felt like.

I believed that I was smiling and being happy...

But, I think it's just that I wasn't aware of it myself, and that, in my heart, I was sad and in pain.

I don't realize it's painful, and yet I get hurt...

My heart's gotten strange and has been warped into a weird state. The ones who made me realize that were Hokke~ and the others.

They're my valuable friends, the ones who saved my life. That's why, I want to return the favor.

I can't do anything but smile and sing, but I want to do the best I can with that, to make everyone's dreams come true.

Because I think that smiles are the best.

Because I believe that everyone lives so that they can become happy.

Because I like it better when they sparkle and shine, after all.

That long ago, I was all alone in the classroom. I became like a clown and talked on and on...

I have to acknowledge it even just to myself. Back then, I was so pathetic.

That's why this is for my own sake. To start, I'll acknowledge my past self.

After that, I'll return the favor to my friends.

And last of all, I'll spread a sparkling dream over the whole world.

I’ll show it to everyone, the whole world shining!

I won't ask you to work with me. I won't ask you to sympathize with me either.

I just... wanted you to know that I’m that kind of person, I guess.

Since, from now on, we're going to be allies together.

I want to know about you too, you know.

Whoops, I can see the auditorium from here.

I promised Shinonon that I'd go watch his Dream Fes, after all~ Transfer Student, let's go together!

That is, it’s a little... you know... to say something like that after already taking someone out, though!

It seems that we're gonna be spending the good times and the bad together, y'know? I'm counting on you, okay, partner? ♪
