Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

Good Afternoon ♪

Shu-nii-SAN, pardon ME. I would just like to chat with you a BIT, if you have the TIME…?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

Boy, as you can see, I’m quite busy, so do try to keep it brief.

Hm…? Aoba, you - why are you together?

Tsumugi Aoba School Dialogue Render

Ahaha, I’m really loathed, huh~…..

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

ActualLY, we recently decided that Switch should participate in the ‘school festiVAL’, and we were thinking of doing a haunted HOUSE…?

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Na, a haunted house!? I love scary things, so if ya do somethin’ like that, I fer sure wanna come ‘n play in it ♪.

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

Fufufu, as we THOUGHT, Mika-kun is really into this ideA.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Y-yeah, but why were ya even considerin’ my thoughts when ya came up with this? I mean, I like bein’ scared and I think it’s fun, so o’ course I’d be into it.

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

No, that wasn’t a consideration of OURS…Switch had already decided on this earliER.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Ah, so ‘it was just decided’, ‘s how it happened? Anyway, this is kinda a big thing t’ take on so close t’ the actual date. Is it just gonna be you guys? That might be tough, yanno?

I heard it from Naru-chan, too, that Knights ‘n Ra*bits are doin’ somethin’ t’gether, so maybe ya might wanna consider that, too.

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

You saying that makes my job much easiER, because we were wondering if Valkyire would join US.

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

In other words, you want Valkyrie to be part of the haunted house.

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

YES. I’ve heard that you have not yet applied with anything ELSE.

WELL, ‘yet’ may not be accuRATE, depending on whether or not you intend to particiPATE.

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

If we don’t participate, technically we can’t be penalized. If you are finished disturbing me, I will retreat to continue my work.

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

Speaking of WHICH, Shu-nii-SAN, what exactly is this prickly thing that you’re sewING? It’s fine work as alWAYS, but as I thought you were in a SLUMP, it’s a relief to SEE.

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

Do those eyes of yours see anything? I’m not uninspired, but it’s foolish to praise me for this level of work. I would like to finish this properly, but time constraints have limited what I can do.

Wataru has said that it needs to be half-done by tomorrow, so if I work all night, how can my efforts possibly be up to my normal standards?

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

Fuun, you’re making it for Wataru-nii-SAN? I can’t believe that he would ask you to make anything for FINE, so is it perhaps for the theater CLUB?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

It’s a comfort for me to simply be able to say ‘that’s right’, in this case. It’s not as if there were any disputes, though it was a request that I still had to consider at first. But, as a result, you can see that my hands are full with making costumes, so we cannot help you with the haunted house.

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

Hm~m, so there’s no way to manage IT?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

You’re too persistent. Where did that cute child I remember from the past go?

Well, I’ve been working around the clock, so I suppose I’m entitled to a break. While I do that, I’ll allow you to consult with me, if you wish.

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

Thank YOU, Shu-nii-SAN, you’re truly a kind older broTHER ♪

In order to properly put on the haunted HOUSE, we need to make some PROPS, so I would like to hear your honest opiniON.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Na, what a cute doll~ ♪. Wa, it’s so shiny!? N~, if ya press the button on th’ back, its whole body starts t’ shine! ‘s magical and beautiful… ♪.

But, t’ use it in a haunted house? ‘S not scary at all. In th’ first place, dolls are small ‘n pretty, that’s how I feel. ‘S not somethin’ that fits with th’ atmosphere of a haunted house.

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

I’ve examined it carefully, but why did you make its whole body glow? What kind of device is that?

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

Eh? why? Because it is for use in the haunted HOUSE, of COURSE.

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

Hmph, in a haunted house, the intent is to frighten the guests. Aa, Kagehira is always watching television shows related to that sort of thing at home.

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

Hee, it appears as though both of you have extensive knowledge of this THEME. SO, after ALL, I would like to ask again for your cooperaTION…as for prop makING…even if you cannot do THAT, could you not perform the role of a GHOST?

If we want to create something magiCAL, then we need to be led in the right direcTION.

In this WAY, it’s not merely a haunted HOUSE, but a type of show in its own RIGHT. BUT, this would not be possible at all without the involvement of the two of YOU.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Yanno, Oshi-san’s a perfectionist, so if y’ wanna have him create a haunted house, ‘s gonna be suuuuuuper scary~ ♪.

‘S fun t’ make scary props, too. I mean, ‘ve already kinda got things that are kinda like cursed toys, so they’d be th’ perfect thing t’ use.

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

Kagehira, we’ve been through this already. I’ve said many times that I do not intend to participate.

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

WELL, if we want to conclude THIS, it would make a good stoRY, Shu-nii-SAN. If you join the ‘school festiVAL’, there is prize money at STAKE.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Na, really!? I’ll work even harder ‘n more happily if there’s prize money involved!

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

Is that SO? Ah, of COURSE. Mika-kun is always working jobs around the SCHOOL, RIGHT?

SO? Shu-nii-SAN, is this NOT, in many WAYS, a good stoRY?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

……..

Tsumugi Aoba School Dialogue Render

Natsume-kun, isn’t it better to be honest here~? But then, the prize would eventually come to light, though you neglected to mention that it’s only for the show that is chosen to be the best.

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

…(Punches Tsumugi in the stomach)

Tsumugi Aoba School Dialogue Render

Ouch! What was that for…!?

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

Sẖ̡͖̞̮ų̝̫̣͍ţ̤̙ u̢͖͕̝p̨̣̞͉̫ͅ,̩̜̬͜ M̝̭͜o͍̥̟͇͜j̧̮͕a̧̬̪̬-̗̦͢m̢̰̣͎̘̰e̢̩̙̰͔g͕̙̯̖͢a̧̫̖͓͍͈n̢̗̲̠̘e̬͎̳̩͢ͅ.

While it’s true first place will receive a PRIZE, the same is true for second and THIRD. It’s not a LIE, Koneko-chan herself confirmed IT.

Tsumugi Aoba School Dialogue Render

Ah, speaking of which, weren’t you in contact with Anzu-chan on your smartphone on the way here?

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

YES, I was negotiating that the majority of the prize money be given to ValkyRIE. If Sora’s negotiations are successful and 2wink joins us as WELL, our share of the pot will be rather miniMAL. Is that okAY?

Tsumugi Aoba School Dialogue Render

Ahaha, why are you asking me? You’re the leader of Switch, so in the end, it’s your decision.

Besides, the prize isn’t the motivation for me to participate in the ‘school festival’…and Sora-kun won’t care about that, either; that child often says that he’s not fond of money because it has a cloudy ‘colour.’

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

That’s THAT, THEN. WELL, Shu-nii-SAN?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

Hmm, that does sound acceptable. Very well, if what you say is true, then we’ll cooperate with you, boy.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Eh? Oshi-san, really!? We will!?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

I’m not interested in money on principle, but when we cannot hold proper lives without funding, it becomes a bit of an issue. Besides, if we get the prize money, that will decrease the amount of ‘part-time jobs’ you’ll need to work.

Ah, I meant to say this earlier, but aren’t you concerned about your physical condition? If you break down, I’ll need to perform maintenance, and that just becomes troublesome.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Yeah. ‘M real happy… ♪

But Oshi-san, when y’ say that we’re gonna ‘cooperate’ with ‘em, d’ya mean ‘participate’, too?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

Unless I expressly say ‘join’, do you truly not understand? Use your brain a little…no, this is not the time for that. As I said before, Wataru will need the costumes soon. As soon as that time passes, I will get in touch.

Is that okay with you, boy?

Natsume Sakasaki School Dialogue Render

YES. Thank YOU, Shu-nii-SAN. Well THEN, SenPAI, let’s head back to the ‘secret ROOM.’

We will need to report this to SoRA, and hope that he has a good report to give us as WELL… ♪
