|Huh? But why were you chasing after me?
Ah, I see. So due to Nii-chan’s idea, we’re doing a marching band,
And you came looking for me, one of the members of “Ra*bits”.
Sorry, I had no idea, so I kept running from you all this time…. I thought you were the Masked Pervert, so I just ran as fast as I could.
Ah, so this is the costume for the marching band? I’ll change into it right now, so please wait here.
Understood. I think I know where he’ll be at this time of day. Senpai, please come with me.

|Mnnn…. What’s that…. I can’t eat anymore….. A hundred yakisoba-pan is too much, even for me…..|
|So you really were here, after all. Mitsuru! Wake up!|
|No, not anpan! Come on, just get up already!|
|?! Ouch! Mitsuru, stop biting my hand!|
|Chew chew.... This anpan.... doesn't taste like anything....|
|I'm not anpan!!|
|Uu…. That hurts…. Who hit me in the head? I’m all dizzy now….|
|Haah. Are you finally awake?|
|That sounds like Tomo-chan~ What a coincidence!|
|It’s not just a coincidence. I came here looking for you, Mitsuru.|
|For me? Oh, I know why! “Ra*bits” is putting on a concert, right?!
Alright~! Time to get super duper fired up~! ☆
|Ah, Mitsuru, wait, that’s not–….|
|Ahem♪ We’ll show them everything we’ve got! An all-out pitch!|
|Mitsuru….! But we’re not even going on stage this time…. He never listens to what people have to say.
I’m sorry about this, senpai. I’ll go after him, so please go back to Nii-chan first.
Huh? You’ll come with me? That would really help, but are you sure?
Thank you so much. Alright, let’s catch him together, then. Though, that’s easier said than done. Mitsuru’s a really fast runner.
He’s in the Track Club, and as you’d probably guess with how he’s always saying, “Dash, dash!” he really loves running.
I think it’ll be hard to catch him if we just give chase, so the only way is to have him cornered.
Mitsuru’s probably headed for the school grounds where there’re a lot of guests…. Senpai, let’s hurry!
|[Scene Change: Grounds]|
|It doesn’t look like Mitsuru is here yet…. Senpai, let’s hide somewhere and wait for him to come.|
|I made it to the grounds, but now what! I don’t see Nii-chan anywhere, and Hajime-chan and Tomo-chan aren’t here either~
I can’t do anything when I’m on my own. Guess that’s the downside of being used to having my friends around all the time….
|Well, you don’t have to say that now that your friends have you surrounded.|
|Ah, it’s Tomo-chan! Friend sighted~! ☆|
|Hey! Don’t just latch onto me out of nowhere!|
|Tomo-chan, I wanted to see you~ I didn’t know what I was gonna do all by myself!|
|You run off on your own too much. You have a really bad habit of running off before people even finish talking to you.|
|Uu~….. I’m sorry. I know I was wrong! I won’t do it again, so please forgive me, Tomo-chan! Just like that!|
|Haah…. How many times have I heard you say that same thing again?
Well, we don’t have time for listening to those excuses right now, so I’ll let it go this time.
|Thanks! You really are a great friend~! ☆ So, Tomo-chan, you said you were looking for me?|
|Yeah. Nii-chan is putting together a marching band, so we’re supposed to meet up with him.|
|A marching band? The ones that bang on drums and stuff? But why’re we doing a marching band?|
|Well, that’s because…. Ah, senpai, you’ll do the explaining? I don’t really know all the details, so it’d be helpful if you could explain instead♪|
|Hmm, okay…. I don’t really get it, but okay! In other words, we just need to gather together a lot of people, right? ♪|
|Like Nii-chan said, at this rate, “SakuraFes” might end in a huge failure.
It’d be frustrating for me, too, if the DreamFes starring the unit that Hokuto-senpai is in ended like that.
If gathering a crowd is what we need to do, then I’ll take part in this marching band or whatever else!
Ah…. but putting on weird costumes is the only thing I’d like to refrain from.
|Yeah, yeah, let’s do this~! ☆ Hm? By the way, Tomo-chan, you’re wearing a funny outfit~|
|Oh, right, we haven’t given it to you yet. It’s the marching band costume.|
|Ooh! It’s kinda cool!|
