Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Oshi-san, y'here~?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

Welcome, Kagehira ♪

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

…O-Oshi-san? What's goin' on? Y'seem like you're in a very good mood…

I don' think you've ever greeted me with a smile like that up till now?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

Is that so? Then I shall be sure to do so from now on.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Huh!? Oshi-san's bein' honest!? Usually I get a barrage of insults flyin' at me! Y-You're seriously in a good mood, huh…?

By the way, are ya sewing again, Oshi-san? Didn’t we finish delivering all the StarFes outfits just yesterday?

I think it'd be best if y'let your body rest for just a little while, y’know? You're really strainin' your nerves.

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

You're as kind as ever. You always are worrying over me…

But you don't need to sacrifice yourself just to worry over me. Well, in turn—I've surely become spoiled by that kindness of yours.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

O-Oshi-san!? Did'ya just call me kind!?

Huh? Did my ears get broken somehow? Oshi-san, won'tcha do some maintenance on me?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

Oh, I too know that Mika-chan is always kind. Right? Shu-kun.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Madonee!? Wooow~, it sure's been awhile ♪ Y'haven't really been talkin' much lately? I've missed ya~

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

Fufu. It's nice to see you ♪ You sure say sweet things.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

(whispering) Hey, Madonee. Ain't Oshi-san in a real weird state…? For some reason, he's bein' all sugary sweet…

Ah……! Maybe Oshi-san fell into the school fountain!?

There's this legend. The one where you're asked if you'd prefer the "Beautiful Oshi-san" or the "Normal Oshi-san" who fell into the fountain![1]

Look, there's a fountain spirit right over there! Did it switch out Oshi-san while I wasn't looking~?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

(whispering) Oh dear. Isn't that the tale of the Golden Axe?

I don't think that's it. There's only one Shu-kun in this world, after all. Isn't it simply that Shu-kun became honest towards Mika-chan's kindness?

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Huh--? If I'm treated with kindness like that all of a sudden, my back starts gettin' all itchy somehow, though~…?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

It's alright. I'm sure you'll get used to it sooner or later.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

I wonder~…? Nnah? Come t'think of it--Oshi-san, we just finished makin' all the StarFes outfits yesterday, so what are you makin' now…?

'Sides StarFes, there shouldn’t be any other events that you have to make outfits for a while, right?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

This garment, you see, is a "hula skirt".

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

H-hula skirt…? Um, the thing you put on your waist that flutters a lot? Looks like a mop?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

This is an essential piece for the dance of offering for the Memento Mori.[2] I need to put the utmost effort into every single stitch, or else it will never be complete.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Who the heck is that!? A dance of offering? For "Memento Mori"-san?

Is he some dark magic type'a guy…? I think y'should be able to follow whatever religion you want, Oshi-san, but I'd want it t'be someone you can relate to, at least

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

We will all be clad solely in the "hula skirts", and must perform the wild and sacred dance from day till night as an offering.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

We're gonna wear them!? Well, if you say y'want us to do it, then I'll do it. But in just the "hula skirts"? Won't Oshi-san faint if we do somethin' like that?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

They were a warrior tribe, you see. Thus, those with breakable wills have no choice but to collapse.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Wooow~. They sound like the type of people Oshi-san hates. He’d usually say something like, "What primitive savages. Completely lacking in elegance." to that.

No, wait a second! What do you mean by tribe? Did something like that ever even form in this country? And why're y'even making their outfits, Oshi-san?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

Because Shu-kun is someone who appreciates the "Muhammad Ali".

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

The person's name is different from earlier…! He turned into the world champion! Ahh, but there sure is someone persuasive there, in that fighting tribe.

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

That outfit is specially made.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Don' just keep the conversation goin' and ignore meeeeeee!

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

That outfit cannot be knit with anything but harvested nyowool.

A garment made of 100% nyowool is the absolute warmest. It will keep one warm, no matter the depth of cold.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Hmmm. If it's just the hula skirt that keeps your waist warm, then won't the rest of you get really cold…?

And just what is nyowool anyways? Is it different from wool? And y'said it has to be harvested… is there somethin' growing nyowool in this clubroom?

That's really scary. And no matter how y'look at it, what you're doing Oshi-san is sewing, not knitting…

This is baaaad! There’s so many loose threads to pick at, here!

(…Th-they're both acting weird!)

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

When it's time to harvest the nyowool, you shear it in straight lines, Mika-chan! Fufu. Fufufufu…

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

(Whaaaaat?? Scary…! This is so scary! Did they both eat somethin' strange?)

(They need t'stop sewing for a bit and take a break… Maybe then, they'll go back to normal…!)

O-Oshi-saaan… Y'know? Maybe it's time for a break? I'm pouring some reaaal tasty tea here. And I've got your favorite croissants! How 'bout it? A break?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

……

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Nnah~! Oshi-san, don' ignore me now~! You've gotten this sweaty from sewing wholeheartedly, so please listen to what I'm saying~

….hm? Now that I think about it, isn't it rare for you to get sweaty like this? And it kinda looks like your head is swaying… back and forth…?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

……. (collapses)

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Uwaaaaaaaah!? Oshi-san and Madonee fell oveeeeeeer!?

  1. Mika is thinking of the legend of the golden axe, just as Mademoiselle suggests further on. If you aren’t aware of the full legend, you can read it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Honest_Woodcutter
  2. “Memento Mori” is written using the kanji 森 (‘mori’) for some reason. I’m not sure exactly why, but I am making a note of it just in case.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Oshi-san, are ya in~?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

I'm glad you’re here, Kagehira ♪

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

... O-Oshi-san? What's up? Yer uh, yer in real high spirits for some reason...

I mean, ya never greeted me in such a cheerful way before, ya know?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

Yes, I suppose that was the case. Then I shall commit to doing so henceforth.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Eh?! Yer actually bein’ cooperative?! Yer always shootin' off insults an' stuff at me the moment I step in! Y-Ya really must be in a good mood, huh..?

By the way, Oshi-san, yer still sewin'? We finished deliverin' all the outfits for StarFes yesterday, yeah?

It'd be fine if ya rested yer body for a little while, ya know? Yer too much of a workaholic.

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

You're as kind as ever, aren't you? Always worrying so much about me...

You shouldn't sacrifice so much of yourself just to ensure that I don't falter any. Well, it may be that I've been spoiled by that kindness of yours.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

O-Oshi-san?! Did ya really just call me "kind" just now?!

Is this fer real? Maybe my ears are screwy? Oshi-san, do ya wanna do some maintenance on me?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

"My, but I can see how kind you are too, Mika-chan. Don’t you think so, Shu-kun?"

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Madonee?! Wow, it's been a while ♪ Ya haven't been speakin' much these days, have ya? It's been lonely without ya~

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

"Fufu, it has been a while ♪ You say such adorable things."

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

(Whispering) Hey, Madonee. Oshi-san's actin' pretty weird, ain't he..? He's bein' super sappy to me...

(Whispering) Wait..! Maybe Oshi-san fell into the fountain?!

(Whispering) Ya know, there's a story that goes like that. After fallin' into the water, yer asked which is yers: The "beautiful Oshi-san" or the "normal Oshi-san"!

(Whispering) Right there, that's gotta be the Spirit of the Fountain! Do ya think it's possible that it took Oshi-san's place and I just didn't realize ‘til now~?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

"(Whispering) Oh my. You're talking about the story of The Honest Woodsman, aren't you?"

"(Whispering) There's no reason to think like that. There's only one Shu-kun in this world, and that's this one. Isn't it possible he really did become honest thanks to your kindness, Mika-chan?"

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Mm. But when he started bein' so kind like that all of a sudden, it gave me the heebie-jeebies, ya know~?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

"Don't worry. That'll be something you get used to in time."

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Ya think so~..? Nnah? Oh right, Oshi-san. We finished all the clothes fer StarFes yesterday, so what're ya workin' on now...?

Other than StarFes, there ain't any events ya oughta be sewin' for, is there?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

This piece of clothing is a grass skirt.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

A... A grass skirt..? Um, is this frilly part supposed to hook onto yer waist? The moppy thing?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

It is absolutely essential to wear this when dedicating a dance to Memento Mori. It must be completely done stitch by stitch, one at a time.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Who the heck's that?! Um, this... Memento Mori-san? Yer dedicatin' a dance to him?

Is he a guy that dabbles with some kinda black magic..? Ya can believe in whatever ya want, Oshi-san, but I'd like it if it were at least somethin' a little socially acceptable.

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

"We are going to wear this grass skirt, and devote ourselves entirely to a wild, holy dance that lasts all day and all night."

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

All of us are?! I mean, if ya tell me t'do it I will, but... Wearin' just this grass skirt? Ain't Oshi-san gonna faint if he does somethin' like that?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

"They are a struggling tribe. Those whose will break in defeat have no choice but to fall."

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Uwa~. That sounds like the kinda thing Oshi-san'd really hate, though. "Utterly barbaric, uncivilized to the core. There's nothing elegant about it" is the kinda thing he'd say.

No, wait a sec! Izzat tribe even a part of this country? Why's he makin' clothes fer somethin' like that in the first place?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

"That's because Shu-kun is a big supporter of Muhammad Ali."

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

An' now yer talkin' about someone else entirely..! It became about that world champ! Ah, but I guess someone from a strugglin' tribe'd be a pretty persuasive guy.

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

These clothes are haute couture, yes?

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Nnah~! Yer just movin' on without listenin' to me now~.

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

They must be knitted with freshly sheared unyool.

Clothes that are composed of 100% unyool are the strongest, warmest sort. They'll keep you warm no matter how cold it gets.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Uh... huh. Even if the grass skirt's keepin' our waists warm, ain't the rest of us gonna get cold..?

An' what's unyool anyway? It's just wool, ain't it? Puttin' that aside, how're we gettin' freshly sheared unyool? Is there somethin' in here growin' it for us?

This is gettin' real creepy. Oshi-san's not even knittin' anything, he's sewin'...

Ahh, this is bad! Even a straight man'd never catch up!

(...B-Both of 'em are actin' weird now!)

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

"When we shear the unyool, it must be cut with flowing movements, Mika-chan! Fufu. Fufufufu..."

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

(Eeeh? Creepy..! This is super creepy! Did the two of 'em eat somethin' weird?

I've gotta get 'em to take a break from sewin', even just a bit... Maybe then they'll go back to normal..!

O-Oshi-san? How about ya take a lil breather? I'll make ya some real tasty tea. An' I'll break out yer favorite croissants too! Well? How 'bout it?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

...

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Nnah~! Now yer just ignorin' me, Oshi-san~! Listen here, you've been sewin' so much yer drenched in sweat!

... Nn? Now that I think about it, you don't usually get sweaty to begin with? An' it kinda seems like yer swayin’ from side... to side too..?

Shu Itsuki School Dialogue Render

... (Collapses.)

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Uwaaaa?! Oshi-san and Madonee just fainteeeed?!
