Wow! They were a bit late this year, but the cherry blossoms are finally in full bloom! How pretty~ I’m getting excited! ♪
|Location: 2-A Classroom|
|Woo-hoo! I’m so excited I feel like taking off all my clothes~☆|
|I’d expect no less from you, Akehoshi-kun! Your actions are way too unpredictable! Hehehe, I have so much respect for you….!|
|What are you two making a fuss about, Idiot Duo?|
|Ahaha. Cool and collected today too, huh, Hokke~☆
But you should quit saying those chilly words. You’ll make all the cherry blossoms scatter! How about some warmth instead….?☆
|Don’t cling to me while taking off your clothes; it’s annoying. Anyway, what’s got you in such a good mood, Akehoshi?
But more importantly, don’t just start stripping so casually. There’s someone of the opposite sex here. We’re not an all boys school anymore, after all. You have to think about the transfer student.
|Oh, right! I forgot you were here! Sorry~ I’m still not all that used to there being a girl in our class, you know?
We’ll show you Ukki~ fully nude as an apology! He has a surprisingly nice body, you know~☆
|Your logic doesn’t make any sense, Akehoshi-kun! Cut it out~ Really, why are always so excited lately, like you’re drunk or something? Is it because it’s spring?!|
|Exactly! Because it’s spring! It just makes me full of energy! ☆
Hey hey, why don’t we all go flower-viewing today? We said that we would once the cherry blossoms were in full bloom, remember? ♪
I’ve been really looking forward to it! Let’s sing and dance and party all day~! And then tie our neckties around our heads, draw silly faces on each other’s foreheads and dance around naked~☆
|I’m sorry to tell you this, but cherry blossom-viewing is cancelled this year.|
|What are you saying, Hokke~?! Eh? How come? What do you mean?!|
|Hm. To put it more accurately, “Trickstar” won’t be able to participate in the flower-viewing. We have work to do.
Starting today, we’ll be too busy with preparation, practice, and a lot of other things.
|What? Work? I didn’t hear anything about this! Since we just finished with a big DreamFes, didn’t you say that we could relax for a while?!|
|You’re right. That was a fierce battle, so I’d decided that we should take a break and get back our energy, but we received an important job. Have you heard of “SakuraFes”?
It’s a special DreamFes that’s held every year during the cherry blossom season. Out of the entire school, a single unit is chosen to hold a concert for the audience that comes for flower-viewing.
This year, “Trickstar” has been given the honor of filling that role. It’s an opportunity that we can’t pass up. It’ll be a huge chance to us to finally get our name out there.
By taking victory after victory in DreamFes, we’d be able to start establishing a name for ourselves here at Yumenosaki Academy.
But right now, we’re still just a weak unit that could be easily blown away at any moment. We’ll be done in if we let our guard down. With the way things are now, I don’t think that the Student Council will just leave us be, either.
We need to gather up strength, increase our popularity, and become a powerful unit that can bounce back no matter what happens.
|I don’t wanna! I’m going flower-viewing! Transfer student, you should come with me! ☆|
|Where do you think you’re going, Akehoshi?! Listen to what people have to say!|
|Shut up! Work-obsessed Hokke~, I’m gonna go flower-viewing!
I’ve been looking forward to it for so long! Like I could waste time working with the cherry blossoms in full bloom like this!
Hokke~, what’s more important to you, work or flower-viewing?!
|You’re so stubborn! Fine, then! If you wanna work so badly, then you can just do whatever you want!
Just don’t expect me to take part in this “SakuraFes” or whatever, I don’t care! I’m going flower-viewing~!
|Wait, Akehoshi, hey….! ….And, he’s gone. What’s up with him, honestly?
Well, there’s no helping it. We’ll think about what to do about him later. For now, let’s just focus on the preparations for “SakuraFes”.
We don’t have much time. The cherry blossoms won’t be in bloom forever.
|Mmm… Personally, I can understand how both of you feel, so it’s hard for me to really take sides, you know~?
But if there’s anything I can do to help, I’ll lend a hand. You shouldn’t shoulder everything on your own, Hidaka-kun.
|I know. Sorry, Yuuki. I know it must be hard always being caught between Akehoshi and I.|
|That’s not true. I’m not the only other person in “Trickstar”, after all. There’s Isara-kun, and the transfer student, too.
I’m not alone, so it’s no problem at all~ ♪
We’ll probably be alright just leaving Akehoshi-kun to the transfer student. She’s always looking after us, after all.
Let’s all make amends and enjoy the cherry blossom together, alright? ♪
