W-what’s wrong, Yuuta-kun? Why’d you come in making such a scary face?
Geez, such a horrifying expression is spoiling that cute little face of yours!
So show me a big ol’ smile ☆ You’re much cuter than me, after all!
We have pretty much the sam-…no, we have the exact same face.
We’re the only people who can tell us apart.
But nevermind that! Stop trying to butter me up!
You recognize this, Aniki? This banana peel?!
|…A banana peel…|
|Yeah! It was on the corridor, and I stepped on it and slipped!|
…W-why, I don’t know anything about it! Man, this world is filled to the brim with wonders!
Ah, you’re not hurt, are you? If you are, I’ll be so worried that I won’t be able to eat! And then I’ll starve to death!!
|You really think a fall that small would hurt me?|
You’re right! I’m such a huge fan of your amazing reflexes, Yuuta-kun! Ayooo, president!
What's that even mean? But I see... Hmm… So you really don't know anything about this banana peel...
When I slipped on it and fell, I heard a certain familiar voice go "Crap!", followed by footstep sounds of someone running over to this room...
What’s more, there was a cardboard that said “PRANKED YA!!!” written in a certain familiar handwriting, on the ground where it looked like someone was standing before.
But you still know nothing about it, huh…
|So it really was you! Why in the world do you pull these stupid pranks?!|
|I, um… I was like, oh wow, I haven't played a prank on someone in a long time, so I decided to set up some foolish prank...|
|Ooh, I see! Why, gee, my bad! Oh, how ever did I dare fall for a prank meant for fools!|
|Ah, no, no! I’m not trying to call you a fool or anything!|
|Only a fool would fall for a foolish prank! Ugh, I’ve had enough with you!|
|Ah! W-w-wait! I said I'm sorry! I really didn't think you'd be my victim!|
|Let me go, idioooooot!|
Don't try to leave, Yuuta-kuuuuun! ...Hmph?!
Why'd you throw the banana peel at your Onii-chan?! You're such a meanie!
|I don't give a heck! You know those black spot thingies that grow on bananas when you leave them for too long?! I hope they grow all over your body and ruin your life!!|
What are you saying?! Don’t curse me like that and just leave! I know you wouldn’t wanna see me with those weird spots either!!
Ahh! He left!!
I said I'm sorry! Wait up, Yuuta-kun!!
Is he gone?
(Heheh! Knew hiding behind the door would do the trick ♪)
(Bet he wasn't expecting me to go back inside the room! He'll search for me around the whole school like crazy! Hah!)
I feel better now that we're even ♪
Ugh… What would he do if the victim wasn't me but someone from the student council?!
I’d like to see him wrestle with all the reflection essays he’d have to write! Good grief!
(But should we really be doing this sorta stuff right now?)
(Ever since DDD, a bunch of units have been getting involved in projects and making themselves known.)
(Especially the winners, Trickstar, are becoming super popular.)
(But what about us? Of course I don't regret helping Trickstar out, but it's not like winning DDD and changing the school was our ultimate goal.)
(As idols, we need more people to support us. That’s why everyone’s working so hard to get ahead.)
(We've got to catch up to them. But with the way Aniki is, it's all up to me to work hard!)
It's not like we're skipping practice or anything...
But in the end, we're just a unit of brothers.
We can’t look at ourselves objectively, so it’s hard for us to evaluate ourselves and see our progress.
And we can only come up with so many techniques and learning strategies… Hmm… Is there a way we can change this?
...Should we become someone's pupils?
It's a pretty old method, but we learned a lot from the way our master took care of us, and got much better at acrobatics, too.
Even Hime-kun got pretty good at acrobatics after our training-- and in such a short time, too!
Yeah, that really is the best way to do it! Let's do this!
But whose pupil should I become? Now, that's the question…
Hmm… An amazing idol, huh…
…! Ah, yeah! How about the five oddballs?
I still hear about their legendary heroic tales, and Aniki said Hibiki-senpai was doing things during Circus so extraordinary that he seemed superhuman!
And Sakuma-senpai's one of them, too!
Someone that amazing is right before my eyes! Err, well, he's actually inside that coffin...
But either way, since he’s so close to me, I should be able to ask him to teach me!
