|Hop, step, jump ♪ Boing boing, boing~☆
There, a headstand and then a spin ♪ Ahaha, it feels like an attraction at the amusement park, y’know. It’s so much fun seeing my view change, y’know~ ♪
|I can’t believe how you can move like that after all that practice… I’m completely exhausted from the heat. I wish you’d share some of your energy with me, almost.|
|I-I should follow Mitsuru-kun’s example and do my best as well! Let’s see, boing boing, boing~☆
I place my hands on the floor, do a headstand and then spin around… w-whaa, it’s difficult to support your body with one hand. I feel like I’ll lose my balance and fall~
Uuu, I hit myself in the stomach. Ow…
|Here, Hajime, grab my hand. Up we go… There. Can you walk?|
|Y-Yes, thank you. I’m fine now. It appears that sort of advanced move was too much for me. I feel embarrassed for trying to do something beyond my own abilities…
I’m good at singing, but the exact opposite when it comes to dancing… I feel sorry for pulling you and Mitsuru-kun down all the time.
|Don’t blame yourself too much, okay? I’m kinda average in both areas, so I’m actually jealous of you, Hajime.
Mitsuru’s physical abilities are far better than any of us, so he’s good with dance, and seeing how ordinary I am makes me a little depressed.
Standing out because of a weird personality is one thing, but I want to find ways to appeal to other people more.
|Tomo-chan, what’s with the dark face? If you were a dark cloud, you’d be hiding the sun, y’know? Smile, smile! Fortune comes in by a merry gate, y’know~ ☆|
|No, you mean– Wait, for once, you didn’t get the phrase wrong. Do you have a fever, Mitsuru? Did you practise so much that you’ve gotten developmental fever* now…?|
|Hmph hmph. Tomo-chan, that’s rude! I’m a high schooler, y’know? Difficult proverbs are a piece of cupcake*~ ♪|
|Yep, there’s the usual Mitsuru. Now I’m relieved~ ♪|
|Hey, guys~ Sorry for the wait. I’ve bought sports drinks for everyone ♪|
|Welcome back, Nii-chan! I’m super thirsty, so I’m gonna drink it all at once, y’know~ Gulp gulp ♪|
|Nii-chan, thank you ♪ I should probably be saying sorry for the trouble, actually.
You must be tired from practice, too, so I’m sorry for making you do something like an errand boy would!
|Ahaha, don’t sweat it. We’re all tired from practice, right~?
There are clean towels on the rack, so make sure you wipe your body down. You’ll catch a cold, otherwise~
|Rub rub, whaa… ♪ I feel refreshed after wiping my sweat, y’know. Pass me your towel, Tomo-chan. I’ll wipe all your sweat away~ ♪|
|Woah, don’t, Mitsuru! It’s fine, I can do it myself!|
|I’ve gotten hungry after moving around, y’know. My stomach’s growling, y’know. Gimme bread! A rice ball’s fine too~ ☆|
|You’re so free-spirited… You had lunch before we started practice, didn’t you?
We don’t have bread or rice balls, so if you want to eat something, you’ll have to go to the school shop and buy something there.
|Mitsuru-kun, I’ve got okara cookies*, if you’d like some.
They had free soy pulp at the tofu shop in my neighbourhood. Seeing how the cookies might be a nice snack, I’ve brought them with me, so here, please take one… ♪
|Hooray, Hajime-chan’s so nice! Munch munch… they’re so good!|
|Ah, hey, don’t hog them all. Give me one too… Ah, they’re really nice. Looks like you’ve gotten even better at baking, Hajime~ ♪|
|Y-You think so? Please have one, too, Nii-chan ♪|
|Thanks. Mmm, it’s delicious! The sweetness comes out the more I bite into it and it tastes really good~ ♪ I can feel all my fatigue flying away ♪
We’ve been pretty busy appearing in the “School Festival” with “Knights”, as well as the “Tanabata Festival”, after all~
I feel like we’ve finally gotten some time off after summer break started.
But it’s not like we’ve got time to rest up, anyway.
There are dream fests outside of school in the summer break, so most of the units are working hard towards that, huh.
|Nii-chan, are we going to participate in a dream fest, too?
Should I take a look at the bulletin board or search online for information regarding upcoming dream fests?
|Dream fests outside of school aren’t ranked, so even if we fail, they won’t terminate our activities as “Ra*bits”.
I thought about participating as a method of study, but you guys want to improve your abilities, right?
We’re a developing unit. We’ve made reckless decisions and we’ve come this far because of those choices.
It’s important to keep going, but it’s also crucial that we find time to rest.
So I’ve come up with an idea. Do you guys wanna try having a training camp?
|A training camp? You’re talking about the ones sports clubs usually have to enhance their skills, right? I think it’s a great idea… ♪|
|Whaa, that sounds like fun. Ehehe, I’m happy to see that we can have a sleepover… ♪|
|I wanna have a training camp, too, y’know! We’ll be camping out and having a training camp at the same time, woohoo ☆|
|Mitsuru, Nii-chan did mention a training camp, but he didn’t say anything about camping outside, you know? But if we do stay at a camping site, there should be water there, so I bet it’ll be cool and not as hot.|
|Ah, you’re right. I’ll ask Anzu and see if there are any other good places to hold a training camp. She’s probably here at the academy, too.|
|Anzu Onee-chan, right? Alrighty, I’ll go ask her. I’ll be right back, y’know, whoosh… ☆|
|Mitsuru, are you going to go in your practice gear? Make sure you get changed properly, okay? Here, raise your hands up to the sky*.|
|To the sky!
Woah, I got changed in a blink of an eye. Tomo-chan, did you use magic or something?
|Don’t lump me in with that masked pervert… I just developed a habit of changing quickly from the Drama Club.
We don’t have a lot of members, so there are times where we have to play two roles at once.
|I wanna go fwoosh when I change too! But finding Nee-chan takes priority right now, huh.
Nii-chan, Hajime-chan, Tomo-chan, bye bye~ ☆
|Ah, Mitsuru…! Ugh, I’m worried about leaving him to go alone. Nii-chan, I’m going to go after him.
Oh, geez, slow down, Mitsuru~!
