|Oh, come on, Hajime-chin, and the transfer student, too! You don’t need to bow your head like that. I was just thinking about this too, so you actually came at the right time~|
| Yeah. I want to take advantage of “SakuraFes” to appeal for “Ra*bits,” too.
I was thinking that unless “SakuraFes” goes well, we probably can’t expect much~
So that’s why you asking me for advice on this is just what I’d hoped for, Hajime-chin!
While we advertise for “Trickstar,” it’ll be our chance to promote “Ra*bits,” too!
Still, crowd-gathering, huh~ It sounds simple when you say it, but actually pulling it off is the hard part~
|It wouldn’t be very idol-like to just give a speech, would it?|
|In the first place, the idea of a “speech” sounds too formal, doesn’t it? And with all the commotion, the words would probably be drowned out by the music, anyway.|
|Which means that we need to appeal in a way that won’t get drowned out.|
|What’s that, transfer student? “What about drums?”
“It might be too loud if we do it at the grounds, but it’d be fine if it’s in front of the fountain, or the school gates”? Oh, I see.
Drums…. musical performance….
…..! Hajime-chin! I just came up with a great idea~♪ We’re going to appeal for our “unit” with a marching band!
And if we can advertise for “Trickstar” too, we should be able to gather a crowd~
|I like that. It sounds like a lot of fun….♪|
|Alright then, it’s settled~♪ We’re going to be needing marching band costumes, then. Hajime-chin, do you think you can do something about that?|
|Yes. If we just modify our “unit” costumes a bit, they should be good enough. ….Senpai, will you help me with them too?
Thank you♪ Then, can I ask you to do this costume? Right, thank you for your help, senpai.
Nii-chan, it’s going to look like this. What do you think?
|Ooh! Hajime-chin, that’s amazing! It matches the theme for “SakuraFes” perfectly!
Then, let’s change into them right away…. Ah, but the instruments are the most important part. What’ll we do about those?
|Senpai, you’ll go ask the teacher to let us borrow them? But, I don’t want to cause you any trouble….|
|Transfer student, you might insist that you haven’t done anything, but you helped us out together with Hajime-chin, right~? So you don’t need to worry about anything.
But since transfer student insists on it, Hajime-chin, let’s leave this to her~
|Senpai, is this really okay? ….Alright then, here’s Tomoya-kun and Mitsuru-kun’s costumes.|
|We’ll be waiting by the water fountain, so meet us there as soon as you can~
|But Nii-chan, won’t we end up missing each other that way? It hasn’t been that long yet, so let’s just keep waiting for a little longer.|
|Nn~ ….. If you insist, Hajime-chin. But only for ten more minutes.|
|I wonder where Tomoya-kun and Mitsuru-kun have gone off to.|
|I have no idea either. Even when I try calling their phones, neither of them will pick up.
I’m pretty sure they’re still somewhere at school, though. It’d be a real problem if they weren’t….
Even if we aren’t performing in “SakuraFes,” it wouldn’t be right to be promoting ourselves without all of our members present.
….Hm? Is that…..?
Hey, transfer student! Over here!
|Then, how about I be in charge of playing the flute?|
|Eh?! Hajime-chin, you know how to play?!|
|Yes. Although I only know how to play simple songs.|
|That’ll be more than enough~♪ You make your big brother proud with all the things you can do, Hajime-chin~♪|
|Oh, no, that’s not true….
There really aren’t a lot of things that I know how to do. You’re giving me too much credit, Nii-chan.
|No way, you’re just giving yourself too little credit. Don’t you think so too, transfer student~?
See? She thinks so too. You should be more confident about yourself, Hajime-chin♪
|Um, well…. th-thank you very much. Just hearing those those words already make me feel a bit more confident….♪|
|Alright then, I’ll be taking the baton. Hajime-chin’s gonna go on a big parade with a flute~! March, march, for-ward march!|
|Hajime-chin? I’m going to lead the way, so I want you to follow behind me while playing the flute, okay?|
|Ah, right. I know that. But it’s a little embarrassing to be only one playing an instrument….|
|Hajime-chin! We’re idols, you know~? We can’t be wasting time feeling embarrassed!|
|I-I’m sorry! We’re idols, so I have to be able to handle something like this.
Nii-chan, I’ll do my best to play the flute, so please listen until the end….♪
|Alright~! Now that you’re motivated, it’s the real beginning for “Ra*bits” from here on out~|
