Senpai! Please tutor me![1]

(Everyday Activities) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render

Ehh, don't wanna.

(Study) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed

I wasn't expecting anything from you!

Hm, is Narukami-senpai absent? This is classroom 2-B, correct?

(Everyday Activities) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render

Ahhh, Nacchan huh~... Nacchan said something about having modelling work to do with Secchan.

I think they’re both gonna head straight home once they’re done, so Knights is taking the day off, yeah?

(Study) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed

Eeh? Well, there’s no helping it if they have work, but I'd like to be told about this sort of thing beforehand!

I feel like I'm always being treated as some sort of underling, or rather, I'm being made light of!

(Everyday Activities) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render

Huh, you weren't told?

That's actually surprising~. Secchan's pretty strict when it comes to following his policy of “report, communicate, consult”.

Suuchan, you sure you didn't just miss a message on the school's SNS?

(Study) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed

Eh, there’s no way that I—...?

Ahh, there certainly is a message posted there that says, “Sorry, today's lessons are canceled”!

Ughh, I turn my Smartphone off during class, so I hadn’t noticed! What a terrible mistake!

(Everyday Activities) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render

Well really, it's also Secchan's fault for telling us about it just today.

Lately he's been forced to return to model work or something like that, so things have been really hectic, I think?

Putting that aside. You were saying something about tutoring, but what about it?

Don't I always say not to bring up anything troublesome?

You’re always doing stuff like that, like with Duel and aaall...

You keep bringing over unnecessary work and trouble… It’s honestly a pain.

(Study) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed

I-it's due to my senior's lack of motivation that I am always running around and getting into difficult situations! Please do some self-reflection, Ritsu-senpai!

Mao Isara Summer School Dialogue Render

Heeey. I dunno why you’re fighting, but quit it... You're from the same unit; try to get along.

(Study) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed

Wha—? Y-you're Trickstar's... Ma-Maakun? Senpai?

Mao Isara Summer School Dialogue Render

You only sort of remember my name, huh... We're something like rivals, so try to have a little more interest in us...

I'm Trickstar's Isara Mao, nice to meet you~♪

(Study) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed

I-it is not nice to meet you! All of you are our rivals, rivals!

(Everyday Activities) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render

Hey… Suuchan, don't be so rude to my Maakun.

(Study) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed

Wh, what am I being scolded for? Whose side are you really on, Ritsu-senpai!?

(Everyday Activities) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render

Fufufu~ I’ll always be on Maakun’s side, no matter what...♪

Mao Isara Summer School Dialogue Render

Alright, that's enough.

Hey Suou, you said something about tutoring... Was there something you didn’t understand in class? If you’re alright with it, I could give you some advice.

(Study) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed

Eh, uh? Well yes, I do, but!

I haven't fallen so far that I would ask someone from our arch-nemesis Trickstar for assistance!

Mao Isara Summer School Dialogue Render

Mm... It's not like we're in the middle of a Live. Without that, we're just an ordinary senior-junior pair at school.

It'd be my pleasure to tutor you a little.

Helping out an enemy who's in trouble is said to have happened in history too.

(Study) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed

Geez, I'm aware of that. That is bushido; we of Knights have something similar to that by which we measure ourselves.

However, urmm...?

Mao Isara Summer School Dialogue Render

Ahaha. If you really hate the idea of me tutoring you that badly, then you could always ask Ritsu. He’s actually really smart, y’see.

(Study) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed

Huh? Is that really true?

That's surprising. I thought his brain cells would have gone extinct from sleeping so much!

Mao Isara Summer School Dialogue Render

Actually, the fact that he’s slept through so many classes, yet still managed to stay in this school by repeating a year just shows how good his grades are.

He’s excellent at being an idol, but he’s also really good at studying, too. Right, Ritsu ♪

(Everyday Activities) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render

Fufun. Getting praised by Maakun feels good ♪

But tutoring's still too hard. It's just a pain.

Mao Isara Summer School Dialogue Render

C’mon, don’t say that. Help out your cute junior every once in awhile.

Everyone in Trickstar's the same age, so I'm a little jealous that you have juniors who need taking care of.

(Everyday Activities) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render

You love taking care of people more than anything, after all...[2] You may like it, but...

I don't wannaaa, I reaaally don't wanna use any more energy than I have to for Suuchan's sake...

Mao Isara Summer School Dialogue Render

...If you keep saying stuff like that, I'll start to hate you, Ritsu.

(Everyday Activities) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render

Ugh~... Maakun's this close to snapping... Why... I didn’t do anything wrong...

This is all your fault, Suuchan... Ugh.

Fine, I get it. It's a pain, but I'll tutor you, since I'd be sad if Maakun hated me...

But aren’t you the type who can study the stuff you don’t get?

(Study) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed

Yes. I am proud to say that I am the top student among the first years, but I am not content with just that. I want to aim even higher.

The Suou family Motto is to always keep moving forward.

Also... Everyone in Class was talking about how their grades improved after their seniors tutored them, so...

Well, I may have also been a little jealous.

So to that end, I also endured shame to come and request the help of my seniors...

... Have I really been a nuisance to you, Ritsu-senpai?

(Everyday Activities) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render

Ugh... Stooop it, acting like a spoiled child with those upturned eyes... That's my weakness. Vampires have lots of those, y’know, it's really annoying.[3]

Oh well, I’ve no other choice. I guess I’ll do things myself for once, instead of leaving it to other people.

I'm not as nice as Secchan and the others though, are you ready for that?

(Study) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed

Yes. That's exactly what I wanted. The road to glory is paved with hardship, after all.

Please instruct me without mercy, Ritsu-senpai ♪

RE: the title! It's 教えて!凛月先輩, which is Probably a reference to 教えて!ギャル子ちゃん (Please Tell Me! Galko-chan), a comedy animanga about high school students asking the titular Galko-chan about this and that. I decided to keep the same structure, but use "teach" instead of "tell" so it'd fit the story better.
  1. 勉強を教える, as well as most conjugations/references to either, are translated as "tutor/tutoring/etc" due to the context of the story.
  2. 三度の飯より好き is an expression that literally means loving something/finding it more important than three meals a day... basically just that it's really really important. Ritsu's making fun of Mao for his busybodyness, as he does.
  3. Less of a tl note, but "acting like a spoiled child with those upturned eyes" = he's totally giving him puppy dog eyes... So cute.
