Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render


(The hellish one week is over.)

(Thanks to Sakuma-senpai and the Light Music Club's efforts... I'd like to think that our training has progressed free of incidents.)

(We've been practising individually until today and we'll be training as a unit to prepare for the S1 a week from now.)

(It's the best opportunity to defeat the student council since S1 is a gathering spot for many ordinary visitors; in other words, swing voters. I can't let a chance like this slip by.)

(An opportunity like this may never come by again, we should be completely devoted to defeating them.)

(What I'm truly worried about is whether Sakuma-senpai's training has come into fruition or not... Quite frankly, I'm only half-convinced.)

(If we practise as a unit --as Trickstar-- today, will we be able to feel the results of our training?)

(We, Trickstar, are still a fresh new unit. Therefore, practising to synchronise as a whole is necessary.)

(A unit cannot function with just elegance and eccentricity. It would be much more advantageous to fight in a team as compared to individually.)

(If things go well, our true strength will multiply and we'll be able to develop a better performance than usual.)

(From this week on, our true strength won't be adding up during the training, but will be multiplying instead.)

(However, multiplying would mean nothing if our base numbers are low. No matter what you multiply against 0, it'll still end up as 0.)

(In order to counter that, our individual numbers need to increase; that's why we've had our own training for the past week.)

(It's logical. I've been anxiously waiting for the day where we'd all train together as a group.)

(I've gotten used to the individual training now. Continuing from that, I should be doing my own training to boost my strength.)

(There is not much time until S1. We don’t have time to sleep nor rest; we need to keep pushing forward.)

(Defeating an overwhelming enemy, such as the student council... It's just as Sakuma-senpai said -- it is but a dream inside another dream.)

(I'll do my best.)

(I've even asked Grandma to record a rakugo[1] performance on my music player.)

(It'll be useful for my "smiling practice", as well as a good reference worth noting when we'll be fighting Akatsuki, who specialises in traditional culture.)

(Thank you, Grandma. I'll definitely attain victory with my friends.)

(...Come to think of it, Grandma was the one who always gave me what I needed the most.)

(Although, it may not have been for an "excellent idol", she definitely showered me with love.)

(I'm very grateful. Knowing that she is supporting me gives me an enormous amount of encouragement.)

(I can relax both my mind and body. It's probably what I need to obtain. I'll continue on this path with my life on the line,

(believing that a superb view will be waiting for us at the end of the difficult journey.)

*Munch munch munch* ♪

Ahaha. Your expressions have gotten softer recently, Hidaka-kun~

I think it's much better than before!

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Hm. It's because I've been eating nothing but sour foods under the twins' instructions. It seems my muscles have softened, as well as my mimetic muscles.

Would you like some sliced and pickled octopus, and black vinegar konbu?

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

I think it's better if you eat something else apart from those type of foods though. It's not very good for your diet... *munch munch* ♪

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

What about yourself, Yuuki? You've been eating excessively recently. I remember seeing you either not eating much or taking supplements before.

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

Yeah. I've been told by Oogami-kun to "eat meat -- meat, y'hear! Eat lots of it! Eat until your stomach bursts!", you know~?

I've got lots and lots of tough exercise after that, so I'm ravenous afterwards. Maybe I've gained a little weight?

Hokuto Hidaka School Dialogue Render

Hm. You've probably built up on more muscle. You seem a lot more reliable than you were before.

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render

You think? That's nice to hear. I had to keep an eye on my body shape back when I was still doing gravure shoots, though.

This is just the minimum. I wish I had enough stamina so that I don't pass out halfway through the dreamfest ♪

But there's nothing I can do if I end up being some sort of fitness-crazed person. I haven't been neglecting my data collecting duties either.

I've been researching about our play-off, S1, too.
