Izumi Sena School Dialogue Render

Nggh… Yuu-kuuun, how could you be talking so friendlily with Naru-kun!? Why!? And yet, you’re always blatantly avoiding me, your Onii-chan!

(Aargh, geez. Soooo irritating. I came to the rooftop for a change of pace, but instead I got to see something I’d rather not! I feel sick.

While I can just harass Naru-kun tomorrow to vent, how will you pay for this, Yuu-kun?

Should I cross-examine him by asking ‘You were so friendly with Naru-kun, but why wouldn’t you even talk to me’?

But that’s just so pathetic, you think my pride will allow that?)

Aaaargh geez! I’m so ticked off! This world isn’t kind to me…!

Ohh? I spy with my little eye: Izumi-san! An unlikely encounter brought by fate*—what a wonderful chance meeting… Hahahaha☆
Izumi Sena School Dialogue Render

Uegh, Mikejima… You’re still hanging around the school? It’s closing time soon, you know?

Well, not that you were ever the type to follow the rules…

It’s because you were such a troublemaker that the school didn’t like you and banished you.

Madara Mikejima School Dialogue Render

Hahaha. If it’s about the exchange program, I asked to be picked for the part, you knooow!

It was quite the wonderful experience, too. Like they say, life isn’t always rainbows and sunshine, right?

Izumi Sena School Dialogue Render
You sure love your aphorisms… sooooo annoying! What, trying to show off how you’re a man of principles?
Madara Mikejima School Dialogue Render

Hahaha. What’s wrooong? You seem to be ticked off? OK, OK, come at me! You can vent on me all you like!

I’ll receive all of it! Hakkeyoi! Nokotta, nokotta[1]…☆

Izumi Sena School Dialogue Render
What’s with you? So obnoxious. I’m feeling down right now so don’t talk to me! Aah, I’m so ticked off! Shoo-shoo!
Madara Mikejima School Dialogue Render

You’re as wild as a cat during mating season…

I came up to the rooftop because I was tired too, so I don’t have the stamina to argue with you. I hope you’ll forgive me, Izumi-san.

Everything Izumi-san said and did was right, and I was very wrong. Hence, I’ll reflect on it and apologize. It’s my loss.

And that’s that. The end…♪

Izumi Sena School Dialogue Render
You. You’re always so quick to back down, and unconditionally, too… If you’re a boy like me, you’ve got to fight for things sometimes. Damn defeatist.
Madara Mikejima School Dialogue Render

Hahaha. Maybe it’s just like boys to be bothered by things like victory and defeat. But I think while getting along can be more difficult than arguing, that’s precisely why it’s worth it!

Don’t you think so, Izumi-saan?

Izumi Sena School Dialogue Render
Urgh, you’re making my head hurt. I don’t know how ‘Leo-kun’ could be friends with someone like you.
Madara Mikejima School Dialogue Render

Hahaha. Curiously enough, we really hit it off.

Leo-san always sees the good in people.

He’ll confidently say ‘I love you!’ to anyone, so to be friends with him, all one has to do is open up, and accept that.

It’s because that’s what Leo-san is like, that even the twisted Izumi-san could be friends with him, no?

Izumi Sena School Dialogue Render
Hmph… I don’t want you sticking around me any longer than this, so I’ll be going. You should go home soon, too.
Madara Mikejima School Dialogue Render
That sounds great, but I’ve got a mountain of work waiting, see. I’m planning to ask the teachers for permission so I can work until late tonight.
Izumi Sena School Dialogue Render
Aah… You’re single-handedly producing the Festival Eve, I heard?
Madara Mikejima School Dialogue Render

Yep. I’m administrating the whole thing, including the school festival itself.

To be more precise though, I’m acting as an assistant to bridge the Producer—Anzu-san—and the teachers and student council.

Anyway, I looove festivals and all that racket, after all! So I practically interfered into something that had nothing to do with me, hahahaha☆

The teachers have left us to ourselves under the claim of treasuring student autonomy…

While the student council recently experienced a painful loss, which dropped their unifying force. They’re not free to make a move.

And what’s left is the lone producer, who’s still just a weak girl.

Someone has to support her from the shadows—and for now, I think that’s my role.

Because I’m not in any unit, I have the freedom to move; I also have the time to.

Even back then, Anzu-san was always the type to keep everything to herself. I’m worried.

Izumi Sena School Dialogue Render
…? Mikejima, you knew that ‘amateur’ from before?
Madara Mikejima School Dialogue Render
Yeah. Though we were kindergarteners back then, and she doesn’t remember me…♪
Izumi Sena School Dialogue Render

Hmm… Well, you’re a perfect superman who can do everything, so I guess things will be fine.

In the past, you were treated as the go-to for every problem, weren’t you?

Madara Mikejima School Dialogue Render

Hahaha. That’s overestimating me. I just inherited all the tricks Rei-san cultivated, is all.

Of course I’m trying my best to be an ‘omnipotent helper’ like Rei-san is.

Anyone will be relieved to know there’s someone to depend on when they’re in trouble.

Although I couldn’t find a place for me anywhere, at least I want to become… ‘a comfortable place to go’, without turning anybody away.

Like everyone’s Mama, you know? I know I have a long way to go, though.

Izumi Sena School Dialogue Render

Hmn~… Then how about leaving some of your jobs on us Knights? We’ve been pretty much acting like a helper troupe lately.

I’m already set to appear on the Fashion Show Naru-kun selfishly accepted, though.

Kasa-kun is still green, while Kuma-kun is apathetic, so it’s just me and Naru-kun appearing with the two of us.

I think if it’s just one easy job, those two kids on stand-by can settle it for you.

Madara Mikejima School Dialogue Render

Hahaha! Thanks for the kind offer♪

Things are going okay for now, but I’ll be sure to depend on you when I need it!

Let’s help each other in times of needs—then we’ll be a ‘team’ that overwhelms even the strongest ‘individuaal’!

That’s the normal in Yumenosaki Academy now, right? It might take some time for me to get used to it…♪
