|(Ugh~ This is bad, we’ll be late if we don’t hurry~ I thought we still had time, so we went to the garden terrace for lunch.
For a while, we split up with Anzu-chan because she had to report her shopping… as part of work.
After being left alone with Sazanami-kun, I didn’t know what to do.
I’m hopeless, still so timid no matter how much time passes… I thought I was getting a little better at talking lately, but that might have been my imagination.
But wait, that doesn’t mean I can get gloomy. Anzu-chan took the trouble to regroup with us, and Sazanami-kun who came from outside the town should be feeling more uneasy than I do…
I need to be tactful.)
|…Umm, what’s wrong, Sazanami-kun? You seem restless.
I guess there’s something different about another school, after all?
|Nah, just wondering if Sagami Jin isn’t around.|
|Huh? Why? Sazanami-kun, are you a fan of Sagami-sensei?
Fufu. It’s easy to forget who he really is considering his normal behavior, but he once stood as the top idol, after all…
Maybe his fame is still deeply rooted even now?
If you really want to see him, should I call him for you? Sagami-sensei is my homeroom, so we’re not completely strangers.
I’m in the committee, so I have the authority to make a broadcast.
He doesn’t really commute here on breaks, but if he is in the school grounds, he should show up.
|Nah, I just thought it’d be lucky to see him… Rather than that, we’re short on time, so let’s get to the lesson room quickly.|
|Okay. Uh, the afternoon practice is held in a soundproof lesson room, right?
I have to be careful not to mistake the place~ This school gets renovated a lot, so the mapping is hard to grasp.
Even a Yumenosaki student like me would get lost sometimes.
How does it look compared to Reimei Academy? Do we look behind the times compared to new schools like yours?
|Hmm~ To start with, our school solely specializes on idols, you know. So it’s refreshing to see the different things incorporated here, like the general course.
Some places look deteriorated from age, but surprisingly you guys keep up with the newest equipment… No leaping difference from our school, I think.
|Oh, that’s kind of interesting. I might want to see what your school is like.|
|Haha. Then why not come to wreck Reimei Academy next time?
Well, only if you end up with passing marks as work partners for us, that is.
|You’re so confident, Sazanami-kun… Well, Eden is the top in our age group, so that’s just natural, I guess.
I’m always uneasy and so quick to shirk, so I’m envious.
|No no, I’m really just desperate to look tough, that’s all~ In Reimei Academy, when the other party makes light of you, you’re done for.
Especially for an underling like me, who wasn’t even a Special Student.
|Ooi! Ukki~☆ Over here!
Oh, Anzu’s here too! I’m so happy!
I was lonely when I heard you weren’t in charge of Summer Live, but will you still produce us too this time around?
Yehey! Today’s the prime of our era~! As long as Anzu is with us, there’s nothing to fear☆
|Oi, oi. I’ve told you this many times, but stop jumping at Anzu, Subaru… It feels like you’ll both fall of the stairs like that, it’s unnerving to watch.|
|No worries! I’m confident in my sense of balance☆|
|Even if that’s true there’s the fact that you’re a guy and she’s a girl; normally that would be sexual harassment… Well, you do look like you’re completely free of such impure intentions, I guess.|
|Ah, you’re here too, Isara-kun… What’s wrong, you two? Standing around on the corridor like that. Are you guys stopped here because you didn’t bring the lesson room key?|
|Not that; someone’s singing and dancing inside… It doesn’t feel right to step in. We were just talking about waiting until they’re done with one song.|
|Hmm? Huh—hey, Makoto… He’s the guy from Reimei, right?
Yep, no doubting it, I saw a headshot of him on the documents, after all.
Uh, you’re in Eve, right? I’m Trickstar’s Isara Mao. We’ll be working together~♪
|Right… My name is Sazanami Jun, from Eve. I’ll be in your care for the occasion, Isara-san.|
|What, someone from the other school is here? Let me have a look! So intriguing!|
|As if that’s some rare animal you’re talking about… Introduce yourself properly, Subaru.|
|Oops, sorry! I’m Akehoshi Subaru of Trickstar! Let’s get along☆|
|Akehoshi… Hey, just wondering, are you that Akehoshi’s son or something?|
|Hmm? You know my father? Well, I guess most people in this industry would know! Ahahaha☆
Are you worried over working together with a guy whose name is Akehoshi, after all?
No. I’m just surprised; I never knew he had a son. In fact, I think I can somewhat empathize with you~
Some burden our parents left us, huh?
