|W-woah there. Aniki, what are you planning to do with these umbrellas?
And in any case, swinging an umbrella around like that is dangerous. If you accidentally landed a direct hit into someone’s eyeball, they’d go blind, you know?
|It’s fine, it’s fine. I won’t make a blunder like that~.
|See, I told you so… It looks like you didn’t get hurt, but if you ripped your practice clothes, you’d be causing trouble for Anzu-san and Aoba-senpai.
Everyone’s relaxing after the S2 that just ended, but for us, the real thing begins now.
Whenever possible, we practiced with Switch, but it’s not like that took up a lot of our time…
And now that we have practice outfits, I want to see some great results.
|Don’t worry, Yuuta-kun. I share your feelings of wanting to make the “Sunshower Festa” a success.
Look, the “Sunshower Festa” requires us to do a performance incorporating umbrellas, right?
They placed a lot of importance on that during the audition as well, so I think it’d be best to think of a bunch more techniques like that.
|Aah, you’re right. Umbrellas are colorful, so I think we’ll be able to delight them with a performance reminiscent of a kaleidoscope?|
|That sounds good. Then how about putting our special skill to use and do some juggling with the umbrellas?|
|Yep yep, I’m sure the children will enjoy that~. Maybe we should use children’s umbrellas and toy umbrellas for the juggling. Aniki, join me in practice for a bit.|
|Nishishi, piece of cake, Yuuta-ku~n ♪|
|Ahaha. The kids of 2wink sure get along well.
Of course, so does Switch~. Twins are a good omen, so I’m sure good things will happen when we work together with them ♪
By the way, are you going to come watch us on the day of the “Sunshower Festa”, Anzu-chan?
Fufu, so you’re curious to see it after all.
It’d mean working on your day off, but whether or not the producer is on location during a performance does make a difference in motivation.
|What’s wrong, Natsume-kun? ...Ah, are you here to tell me to quit chattering and focus on practice?
I observed your practice while making clothes, so I’m sure I can match up with you guys immediately, though?
|WeLL, Senpai might look unrefinED, but once you go up on stage it’s not like your performance is entirely unwatchabLE.
Even though you look like you have bad reflexES, you have real performance abiliTY. How impertinent of yOU, even though you’re just SenpAI.
|Eeeh, why are you making that displeased face!? I can’t tell if you’re praising me for being a valuable asset or admonishing me for causing you trouble…?|
|You’re slow on the uptaKE, SenpAI. Not that I miND, thouGH.
Little kittEN, if you have the tiME, why don’t you come watch our performanCE?
By exchanging opinioNS, we can reflect each othER, bUT. I’d like to get an unbiased opiniON.
You’re our producER. As suCH, it is your responsibility to guide us idoLS, to nurture US.
I heard the rumoRS. Now that the S2 is ovER, you’re bored with nothing to DO.
The little kitten prefers having work to do over having free tiME, because it gives you a verification of your raison d'être and eases your miND.
I am by no means trying to one-sidedly use the little kittEN.
I’ll get the little kitten to watch our performanCE, and she will enjoy having work to DO. It’s give and taKE...♪
YeaH, in that case we’ll be in your caRE. I have high expectations for yOU, little kittEN ♪
|HaHa~♪ Sora practiced together with Hina-chan and Yuu-chan~. Sora worked up a sweat, and it feels gross not to wipe it with a towel~?
Nnh? Anzu, you’re lending Sora this towel? HiHi~, when one is generous to you, you thank them! Anzu, thank you ♪
Eh? You want Sora to show off his performance? Of course, Hina-chan lent Sora an umbrella~. Can you throw it to Sora?
Umm, it’s no problem even if you throw it all the way up to the ceiling~. That’s right, Sora wants you to throw it with a “there!”~.
Thank you! Being praised and called amazing~, that makes Sora so happy ♪
But, but, during the real performance Sora is going to grab the umbrellas hanging in the sky over the street~. You can’t reach them even if you jump~.
That’s why Sora is going to use the walls! By using the walls, Sora will jump from one building to another and catch the umbrellas!
Nh~, it’s not dangerous~. Hina-chan said he’ll do it, too! It’s the same sensation to Sora as it is for Anzu to walk on the ground ♪
|Wau!? Hina-chan, don’t cling to Sora out of nowhere~. You surprised Sora!|
|Ahaha, sorry, sorry. While trying out all these different umbrella tricks I totally tuckered myself out.
So I leaned on Sora-kun who happened to be close by.
|It’s fine, Sora is sorry too! Hina-chan, can you walk? If you can’t, Sora will carry you on his back all the way home!|
|Nono, I do have enough strength to walk~. Rather, I feel a bit woozy because I’m so hungry.
What do you think, Yuuta-kun, should we fill our bellies a little bit?
|Agreed~. I’m hungry as well. Even though I ate a proper lunch my stomach is complaining that it wasn’t enough.|
|Nh~, you two are hungry? Do you want to go to the school store? Or the cafeteria?|
|Let’s see, if we’re gonna practice all the way until night, it might be best to eat at the cafeteria.|
|In that case, we’ll go negotiaTE. I’m sure there’ll be no problem in us extending the rental periOD. Sora and you kids of 2wiNK, go ahead and take a breAK.|
|HuHu~, understood! Shisho~ and the others, please join us soon! We’ll get changed and head to the cafeteria! HaHiHuHeHo~….☆|
