|Right, right. If I were to give you an advice… if memory serves, Sakasaki-kun devotedly collects even records that have been officially erased in his underground secret study.
You may go to him if you desire information, though he might ask for something in exchange… I will speak to him if he makes things difficult.
Also, there is no real way to cut off the flow of information in this day and age.
You may benefit from asking your precious comrade, Yuuki-kun, to search for information on the in-ter-net. Isn’t that child knowledgeable in that area?
|True. But Makoto forgets about restraint too easily to be carelessly counted on.
If he ends up devoting everything to that task and forgetting about the real Summer Live, that’s mistaking the means for the end.
|Kukuku. Once he decides on a course of action, that child’s concentration power is far above normal.
That’s what you call talent; his gift may rival even us the Five Oddballs’.
Of course—geniuses and heroes, monsters and unknown creatures…
To take control of them, to nestle by their side as an ally and bestow salvation upon them is the role that normal humans like you play, Isara-kun.
Show me you can accomplish that. If not, you will not raise victorious in this deadly war against the powerful idols of the country.
Well, Isara-kun; you are already used to dealing with my cute little brother… You know the tricks to taming monsters like the back of your hand, yes?
|Monster, huh… So~mehow, that just doesn’t fit Makoto.|
|Oooi, Sari! I knew it’s Sari! Yahoo yahoo yahoo☆|
|…Oh, here comes the more blatant type of monster.|
|What are you talking about? Doesn’t matter, I guess. So Sari, how about we go running together?
We’ll only practice indoors today, so now’s the only time you can dash all you like, you know? ☆
|No no, I just finished eating. My flank will ache if I run.
You’re energetic as ever, Subaru. Rather, aren’t you powering up by the day?
|Ahahaha! I love summer! The whole world is sparkling☆|
|Summer’s just starting. Even you’ll run out of gas if you start it with a dash, Subaru.
Here; if you’ve run to your fill then make sure to keep hydrated.
|Yaay, warm tea! I love warm tea☆|
|Ahaha. We’ll hurt our stomachs if we keep consuming cold drinks just because it’s hot, after all. Well, not that I’ve ever seen you get sick, though.|
|Yes. To be born healthy is a treasure. You should thank your parents for it.|
|Huh? For some reason, Sakuma-senpai is napping on the ground! Hello, sir!
You guys had meal together? You get along well, huh~? Sari seems to be really close to Sakuma-senpai’s little brother… so are you two childhood friends too?
|Not quite, we just had a fortuitous encounter.
Ritsu will sulk if I act friendly with Isara-kun, so I try not to cross the line… Not to mention there have been traces of him purposefully trying to keep us away.
I would never steal Isara-kun away from him, so he should not be so wary.
Ah, well. Ritsu will nag on me if he sees us, so I will take my leave.
I apologize for making you go along with my rambling, Isara-kun.
|It’s fine. Thank you for the useful information… Rei-chan♪|
|Eh, why did you suddenly call me like we’re childhood friends? You just felt like it? To borrow a certain someone’s wording: I don’t get youths these days and their sense of distance…!|
|Ahaha. Just kidding. You seem weakened from the sunlight, so if you can’t move, should I carry you until you get inside?|
|Do not mind me; reserve your energy. I still have no need for nursing, you know?
You too, Akehoshi-kun—stamina isn’t boundless… Think carefully on how you’d like to spend it.
That’s how it is in the world for the best. That is the sort of stage you now stand on.
Then if you will excuse me. The Summer Live is held during the day, and I may not be able to go to see you, depending on the weather…
But I shall encourage you from the heart, gentlemen from Trickstar♪
|Yeah! Thank you very much for the encouragement☆
Ahaha! Hey, did you see that just now? Sakuma-senpai grabbed a tomato growing on the roadside as he left and took a bite, didn’t he?
Do you know that’s the tomato plant Gami-san has been growing?
|Wait. Speak in order; I have no idea what’s supposed to be funny.|
|So, so! That plot on the side of the road was where Gami-san used to grow onions to take down Sakuma-senpai, you see?|
|Hmm~… Wait a bit, I’ll listen as we run. You were jogging in full speed until now; you shouldn’t abruptly stop like that.
I’ll join you, so you focus on cooling down.
I wanna work off my meal too, so I’ll have a light jog. I think I’ll be at best condition by our lesson time if I do some running.
|Oh, you’ll run with me? Okaay, then it’s a match! Babyu~un☆|
|No, I told you to cool down, okay? What’s heating up more gonna do for you? Even the sun will burn out one day, so seriously, think about how you’ll pace yourself.|
|Eh~? But Trickstar’s all about pushing forward to reach any place without thinking what’s beyond☆|
|I’m saying that method might not work forever… I guess that’s fine though, that is our special trait as Trickstar.
Let’s give today’s lesson our all, as always… Subaru.
|You can count on me! I’ll be shining even stronger than the summer sun! It won’t even be sparkling anymore, but sparking…|
|Honestly, you’re so full of energy it worries me… Geez, I’m starting to get excited because of your influence here♪|
