It will be just enough if we buy this much, I think.

No, let me carry this. You offered me a lot of advice in the shop, after all.

If I were by myself, I probably wouldn't have known which ones to buy. Even if you just say fireworks, there are many different varieties.

That fact had slipped my mind.

Sparklers, skyrockets, handheld fireworks, specialty fireworks...

The best part is that there are so many kinds of fireworks. Despite my age, I was pretty excited.

You enjoy the fireworks with your younger brother every year, don't you? I'm an only child, so I don't have experiences like that.

Although, when I was in elementary school... I played with fireworks often with Obaachan.

During the summer, I looked forward to standing side by side with Obaachan and playing with sparklers.

If I think about it, this is my first experience having fireworks with anyone other than Obaachan... Somehow, it seems like others think that I'm difficult to approach.

I didn't really make any close friends during elementary and middle school.

When I entered high school, I ended up dealing with Isara, Akehoshi and Yuuki, and more... Additionally, you transferred over.

When you had just transferred schools, you were swept up into troublesome things, weren't you? And yet, despite that, you came along with us.

For leading us Trickstar to fine at the top of the academy, even now we're still grateful.

If you hadn't supported us, we probably wouldn't be the way we are now.

The members of Trickstar would have been separated and shut off into the darkness once more.

We wouldn't have won this needed win. Our unrefined abilities would have been trampled and we never would have seen the light of day.

Only the units that the student council recognizes can shine. The academy would probably have been reduced to only releasing idols with no humanity.

That corrosive system was destroyed, and you created a stage where even we could shine.

After we'd been scattered, we united once more. You created the opportunity for us to defeat the academy's strongest unit, fine.

Thank you, Anzu. Absolutely everything is thanks to you.

Because of this, to become close enough to everyone that we can enjoy fireworks together, it's something that I couldn't have imagined before I met you.

... However, you aren't a producer exclusive to Trickstar.

The other units are rushing to ask you to produce for them; that is the current status quo.

We should probably let you go, any time soon but... Nevertheless, we still want you to produce for us, I think.

Wanting something like that, it might be selfish of us-... of me, huh?

Wait, Anzu. There's someone over there. Is that... the vice president?

Keito Hasumi Summer School Dialogue Render

... Hidaka and Anzu, is it? What business do you have to be coming to the academy at this time?

No, leaving that aside... What is that you're holding in your hand? It seems to be a shopping bag but did you go shopping somewhere?

(Happy Sunset) Hokuto Hidaka Full Render Bloomed

(This is awkward... As soon as the vice president sees what's inside, he'll lecture me on and on. I'll have to deceive him somehow.)

Ah, we're back after buying some refreshments. We're asking Anzu to produce for us...

Keito Hasumi Summer School Dialogue Render

Stop it with the terrible lying. Bringing "fireworks" as refreshments, I've never heard of such a thing.

(Happy Sunset) Hokuto Hidaka Full Render Bloomed

(Oh no...! I planned to hide it behind my back right away, but he still saw it.)

(If this weren't the transparent type of bag, then I may try to deceive him again, however.)

(... There's no use. I'll resign myself and speak honestly.)

What the vice president said is correct. I apologize for telling lies.

Keito Hasumi Summer School Dialogue Render

Right. It would have been good if you'd been honest and confessed from the beginning. However, the likes of fireworks... You brats, the academy is a place of learning, it isn't a playground, is it?

What is it, Anzu? You're saying that you were the one that suggested it, so this one did nothing wrong?

Whoever suggested it is irrelevant. Once he accepted the invitation, he also committed the same offense.

Looking at it, the two of you aren't alone, all of the others... All the members of Trickstar are involved, aren't they?

Otherwise, there would be no need to buy that many fireworks.

You've run out of luck, to be discovered by me. I shall give you a drawn-out lecture, until the two of you admit defeat.

Yuzuru Fushimi Summer School Dialogue Render

Ah, Vice president-sama. This is where you were then?

Keito Hasumi Summer School Dialogue Render

I'm in the middle of something right now. Leave it for later.

Yuzuru Fushimi Summer School Dialogue Render

Is that so...? There are deficiencies in the papers that are to be presented to the Student Council President-sama tomorrow, thus I had wished for them to be confirmed by Vice President-sama...

However, as you are still busy with this, then there is nothing to be done, I suppose.

Keito Hasumi Summer School Dialogue Render

Hold it. There are papers to be submitted to Eichi? You should have said so sooner.

You've narrowly escaped from death. However, if you think that I'll let this incident pass, you are sorely mistaken. I shall surely find you and give you a lecture, so prepare yourselves.

Fushimi, let's go. Once we finish this up quickly, we'll have to restrain these two right away.

Yuzuru Fushimi Summer School Dialogue Render

Acknowledged, Vice President-sama.

(Happy Sunset) Hokuto Hidaka Full Render Bloomed

... Are they gone? Phew. We were saved because of Fushimi, weren't we?

Considering how he looked our way as he left, I'm guessing he sensed our predicament and used his quick wits for us.

We'll have to give our thanks to Fushimi later. For now, let's join up with the others quickly. Let's hurry, Anzu.
