All: Unleashing our noble heart (only for the stage)

What are we fighting for? (think about it)
We already know the reason (the feeling's in our mind)
Our persistent resolution goes to those who cry out (our resounding voice)
Ritsu & Tsukasa: We'll go running, embracing our unfading pride

With music played alone
You can't challenge anyone
Arashi & Izumi: On this uncertain
Leo & Ritsu & Tsukasa: Field now
We will fight against destiny

With our silver sword unleashed (on this fantastic night)
We'll show you the dream we believe in, yes my lord
Ritsu & Izumi: Time and time again,
Arashi & Tsukasa: We'll dedicate it to you
Ritsu & Arashi & Izumi & Tsukasa: Letting you hear
The melody you desire

Unleashing our noble heart (only for the stage)
Combining our feelings into one, voice of sword
No matter when or what, our heart won't falter
Hang on, push on, don't stop! To the future, brave knights

The unwavering abilites that we've nurtured (growing into it)
With our special respective magnetism (calling to our mind)
The moment they draw in and overlap with each other (Ritsu & Leo: creating a point)
It will make a dream, a unique tune in a magnificent recital

Wanting to reach that point
Because we have that kind of ideal
Izumi & Tsukasa: Give it shape
Ritsu & Arashi: turn it into a phrase
We want to cut through destiny

Draw the sparkles onto your chest (on this fantastic night)
We'll keeping dancing to this groove
Arashi & Tsukasa: Time and time again,
Ritsu & Izumi: We'll give it to you
Ritsu & Izumi & Arashi & Tsukasa: From this time on
The melody we seized

Blossoming our noble heart (only for the stage)
Cutting down everything with our voice of sword
Becoming a guide to escape from the labyrinth
Let's go, anywhere, don't stop! Distant brave knights

Finding a place to focus on (might not be easy)
But we've came across it (a passcode of dreams)
Ritsu & Izumi: Our uncompromisable pride
Arashi & Tsukasa: Gives us strength
Surprassing any opposition
Farther and farther...
We will make it... (reaching for the new scene) over (over...)

Open your eyes to this overlapping melody
We can feel that there's a future, yes my heart
Ritsu & Arashi: Time and time again,
Izumi & Tsukasa: We'll dedicate it to you
Letting you hear
Ritsu & Izumi & Arashi & Tsukasa: The melody you desire,
and everything beyond that

With our silver sword unleashed (on this fantastic night)
We'll show you the dream we believe in, yes my lord
Izumi & Ritsu: Time and time again,
Arashi & Tsukasa: We'll dedicate it to you
Ritsu & Izumi & Arashi & Tsukasa: Letting you hear
The melody you desire

Unleashing our noble heart (only for the stage)
Combining our feelings into one, voice of sword
No matter when or what, our heart won't falter
Hang on, push on, don't stop! To the future, brave knights

The hands of the clock begin to move
Guiding us to today's chosen game
Sliding above the stage like a dance
As the curtains of the play open

A king and a queen
Chasing and running away
Leo & Arashi: Drawing a dazzling fantasy
Scattering sparks
This decisive battle is a silent fight
Izumi & Tsukasa: An unwavering
Leo & Ritsu & Arashi: Strategy

Takes just one moment

Taking up this sword, we'll make a promise to you
That we'll be there, stronger than anyone
In this black and white world, as the boundaries mingle
We'll do it, and keep on fighting
Izumi & Tsukasa: Proudly
Leo & Arashi & Ritsu: On this dazzling battlefield
Izumi & Tsukasa: The brave duelists
Leo & Arashi & Ritsu: accept the light
Let's determine the true king

To freely move the pieces
Our ensemble resounds into the sky
This board is a sanctuary
Our art will make flowers bloom

Two glittering dreams
Colliding into one another
Leo & Izumi: Shining on until the very last second
Until this voice gives out
I want this sparkling song to reach you
Arashi & Ritsu: The best
Leo & Izumi & Tsukasa: Performance
AWe shall dedicate it to you

On this stage, let us make a vow
That we will be here, for as long as we live
With valor, no matter what enemy confronts us
We will keep dancing on, forever

Wavering within the lingering sun
The chemical lights illuminate the world
White and black together
Ruled over by
Another world
We are holy knights

Taking up this sword, we'll make a promise to you
That we'll be here, stronger than anyone
With the ones who walk together to the future
We'll do it, and keep on fighting

We are the unfading star knights

[Music plays, footstep sound effects plays]

Tsukasa: Everyone, I am extremely and humbly delighted that you have gathered here today. Oh? That Ritsu-senpai is awake... Even though he always sleeps soundly until we finish talking... I suppose unusual things do happen sometimes, don't they?

Ritsu: Ahhh... The thing from the last time... caused me some trauma.... you know... If I got dragged off again... while I was sleeping... I wouldn't be able to stand it... and all.

Arashi: That was.. a bit horrible for you, wasn't it? You hit your head so hard, we were thankful you came out of it without a single injury, you know!

Izumi: More importantly... would you tell us why you got us together, please? Unlike you, Kasa-kun, I'm not an idle person, yanno.

Tsukasa: It's not like I am an idle person, either, but... That's right. It is true that we are taking up everyone's precious time. Let us get to the main topic quickly.

[Sparkling, happy sound effects]

Tsukasa: In fact, the Knights have received a request for work. Of course, it is idol work.

[Izumi claps his hands at Tsukasa]

Izumi: Wait a sec, wait a sec. Why is it that Kasa-kun is the one bringing this important news? You're pretty cheeky for just a first-year kid, yanno.

[Rustling sound effects]

Tsukasa: Sena-senpai, please calm down. I know that as a rule of thumb, when you are smiling, you are dangerous! Please, calm down and let us talk about this...!

Izumi: Shut up, you shitty little kid. Even though I've been annoyed since the King has come back... You shouldn't make me any more irritated than I am, yanno!

Arashi: I just remembered when you said the "King," but, where is that King, anyway? If there's been a request to the Knights, I suppose that would also probably include the King, wouldn't it?

[The music stops]

Tsukasa: Uh... yes.... To begin with, we received this request in part because our leader has returned...

Arashi: Ahh, I see, that's how it is, huh... I understand the basic situation.

Izumi: But, if the King isn't here, that means you couldn't catch him, right? That guy is always stealing off somewhere, isn't he... Seriously, what a super pain in the ass.

[Music begins to play]

Arashi: He's the kind of character that you can only find if you go to the lengths of getting the police involved, isn't he... That that girl could find someone like him.. Could she perhaps be a finding genius!? Hey, Tsukasa-chan, if we ask that girl this time, too, don't you think she would cooperate with us in finding the King?

Tsukasa: Hrm...

Arashi: Oh my.... What a gloomy face.. Even though you were so excited when we found the King, Tsukasa-chan... What kind of change of heart have you had, I wonder?

[Sparkling sound effects]

Arashi: If there's something bothering you, you can tell oneechan about it, you know? There's no distance between us, Tsukasa-chan. You don't have to hold back with me.

Tsukasa: Thank you very much, Narukami-senpai. I... am young and inexperienced. Up until we found the leader, I harbored admiration for the leader I had yet to see, but after I saw our leader, my illusions were crushed in short order.

[An ominous sound effect plays]

Tsukasa: His communication is foolish, I did not think he would be a person who ran around eccentrically like that. If he was the Knights' "leader," he should have properly outstanding charisma! Although it may be rude, for someone whose dancing and singing is also not up to snuff, I cannot respect him as King!

Arashi: Really~ Once you decide something, Tsukasa-chan, that's how it is for you, and all. You're an unexpectedly stubborn kid, so...

[A spring sound effect plays, Ritsu begins to snore softly]

Arashi: Oh my... Since we've been droning on so long, Ritsu-chan fell asleep. Wake up, Ritsu-chan!

[Ritsu mumbles in his sleep]

Arashi: We're not done talking yet, you know?

[Ritsu groans more in his sleep and rustles around]

Ritsu: Uhhhh..... ten minutes more....

Arashi: You've said that before and not gotten up in a whole hour, haven't you? Really... Ritsu-chan, you'll go to sleep if you have even one free minute...

[The music stops]

Arashi: You really are like a cat, aren't you?

[More rustling sound effects, Ritsu grumbles more in his sleep]

Ritsu: The average sleep amount for a cat.... was it 12 hours....? I... sleep about that much... too, don't I....?

Tsukasa: Twelve hours, that's quite surprising. Normally, if you sleep that much, wouldn't your head begin to hurt?

Arashi: Ritsu-chan is a little special, you know? Well, I wish he would refrain from sleeping here there and everywhere, though..

Izumi: How about you guys shut up a minute and listen? This talk isn't going anywhere at all, yanno? Setting aside the issue of the King for a minute, a request came to us, didn't it? Mmm... It still doesn't sit well with me that it came to Kasa-kun, yanno, but...

Tsukasa: Regarding that point, please forgive me for the lateness in my explanation.

[Rustling sound effects play]

Tsukasa: When the documents were delivered to the staff room, Kunugi-sensei told me that a request had come for us.

Izumi: Hmmm. In other words, it was just a coincidence, huh?

Tsukasa: Yes. And as such, please be at ease.

Izumi: If that's the case, then fine, but...

[Arashi laughs]

Arashi: You sure have a relieved expression on your face, don't you, Izumi-chan! Even though you make faces like you don't have any interest in unit activities, but in reality, you're actually very interested in them, aren't you! So much so that I'd say you want to make the King resign, and become the leader of the Knights yourself! Really, you're not honest at all, are you! Poke poke, poke poke~

[Cartoonish poking sound effects and sparkle noises, Izumi growls and pulls away]

Izumi: Seriously, you're annoying, so don't put your face so close to me!

Arashi: Oh my, sooorry!

[Izumi sighs, the sound of footsteps]

Izumi: It looks like you're getting the wrong idea, so I'll say it, but I'm not thinking anything like that I want to become the leader and command the Knights, or anything, so... since as things are now, we're having a hard time even getting through the process of getting to a live performance... I'd take up the role of leader for you guys, since it can't be helped, that's all, you know?

[Arashi laughs]

Arashi: Let's leave it at that, then.

Izumi: What's that mean? You're pissing me off, yanno...

Tsukasa: Um... Ummm... That's.. that's right!

[Piano music begins to play]

Tsukasa: We've, we've gotten requests for a uni- a unit song and a photo collection. Two jobs to coming in at once, as expected of the Knights, isn't it?

Ritsu: Mmm? A unit song...? A photo collection...?

Tsukasa: Yes. Both of them are very idol-like work. It's just...

Arashi: Having the King with us is a condition, right?

Tsukasa: Ah... Yes... That is correct... If you disregard the way you act and speak, Narukami-senpai, you are the most straight-laced here. You pick up on things right away, so it's very helpful.

[A gloomy sound effect plays]

Arashi: Tsukasa-chan you sure say some cruel things with a smile, don't you? And you're not even aware of it, so it's all the more mean, you know!

Tsukasa: Have by some chance caused you displeasure, Narukami-senpai?

[Rustling sound effect play as Tsukasa bows]

Tsukasa: I deeply apologize. I, Tsukasa Suou, shall reflect upon my actions with greater depth than the sea.

Arashi: Ohhh, you don't have to worry about it, you know! Oneechan's heart is not so small that she would get riled up over something like this!

[Rustling, as Tsukasa straightens up]

Tsukasa: Thank you very much. However, Narukami-senpai, are you not, rather than an oneechan, an oniichan...?

Arashi: You can't get caught up on the li-ttle-things!

[Lots of sparkling sound effects]

Arashi: If you have a woman's heart, sex doesn't have anything to do with it, right?

Tsukasa: That is how it is, is it.... Hm... No, Narukami-senpai, you are a man, after all, you can't become a woman, I...

[Arashi claps]

Arashi: Alright, alright, let's leave this topic right here. If we don't we won't get anywhere in our conversation.

Tsukasa: There is that, as well, isn't there? Please excuse my rudeness.

[Rustling sound effects play]

Tsukasa: That being as it is... This is the situation, so we must search for our leader.

Ritsu: Awww... looking for the King takes ... so much meticulous effort, though....

Arashi: That's right, isn't it... The most surefire way, would be... to talk to that girl, and have her help us look, I guess?

Tsukasa: ...But, oneesama has her own work, as well. It would pain me to involve her in our issues once again.

Arashi: I guess maybe it's as you say, Tsukasa-chan. If we rely on that girl every time the King goes missing, it would be a real bother for her. Let's look for him with just us.

Izumi: This sounds like a pain, so I'm gunna pass.

[Whizzing sound effects as Izumi waves his hand around]

Arashi: You can't do that, Izumi-chan! If you drop out too, Izumi-chan, it'll be even harder to find the King, you know? And, you know, wouldn't it be a problem for you too, Izumi-chan, if we don't find the King? You're gunna make the King resign from his position, and have him nominate you for leader, aren't you? If the King isn't here, you won't be able to do that, will you?

[Squeaky sound effects play]

Izumi: Urrrggh.. You are too close to me, too close, too close, too close!

[Footstep sound effects play as Izumi staggers away from Arashi]

Izumi: Alright, I get it. I get it so... don't wiggle up to me like that. You're gross, you know...

[Arashi giggles]

Arashi: I've gotten Izumi-chan's understanding in the matter, let's be on our way to search for the King! First of all... what should we do, I wonder?

Ritsu: There's nothing we can do but... just search all over the place... is there?

Arashi: I guess so... I guess that's how we have to do it, after all. It's not a particularly effective method, or anything, but we don't really have a direct approach to use against the King, after all. At any rate, let's start looking everywhere, from A to Z.

Izumi: Well, if we can find him like that, that'd be the end of the story, but.. Really, makes me wanna say, "Stop making more work for me!"

Arashi: Let's think of this as part of the job, too, and do our best!

[Sound of footsteps plays]

Arashi: Alright then, Ritsu-chan and I will head for the shopping district. Izumi-chan and Tsukasa-chan, could you search over by the park?

Izumi: Why is the okama dividing us up? Super pisses me off..

Arashi: Don't sulk, Izumi-chan. Look, while we're standing here like this, the time is passing, minute by minute. Now, let's hurry off!

[Zooming sound effect, birds chirping, children playing, running footsteps, piano music begins to play. The music turns into an arrangement of Voice of Sword]

Tsukasa: That is.... Sena-senpai, that person over there carrying a casette player over his shoulder and dancing, is that not our leader?

Izumi: Huuh? There's no way we'd find that guy so easily like......

[Leo singing, pitch-dropping sound effect]

Izumi: You were serious, huh.. Running around eccentrically without a care, even though people are staring at him from a distance... that's our head of the Knights, alright.

Tsukasa: Now is not the time to be impressed! Sena-senpai, please contact Narukami-senpai and company. In the interim, I shall capture our "leader," so...

[Footsteps as Tsukasa runs off]

Izumi: Ah, Wha- Wait a... That guy... doesn't listen to what anyone says, does he... Ordering me, of all people, around, even though he's just a first-year, yanno... Well, it's better than having to deal with the King, and all. Just this time, I'll overlook it, Kaaasa-kun.

Leo: One, two, three, da da daaaaa da daaa...

Tsukasa: "Leader!" I've found you!

[Leo continues to sing]

Tsukasa: Please, prepare yourself....

[Leo continues to sing and mumble to himself as he writes, an ominous sound effect plays]

Tsukasa: (This situation... it is the same as before, isn't it? That time, too, my voice did not reach the leader's ears... I will admit he has some powers of concentration... However, I cannot accept you as "leader." If I accepted you, some final, last thing within myself would crumble.. I can't help but feel that way.)

[The music stops. Rustling, Leo laughs, happy, excited sound effects play]

Leo: Ha ha ha! You, you sure are making a troubled face, aren't you! Laugh! Howl to the heavens! If you do, it will reach all the way to space!

[Sound of shoes turning on pavement as Tsukasa turns quickly, music begins to play]

Tsukasa: Eh!? I asked you not to call out to me suddenly before, did I not?

Leo: Did you? I've been so busy communicating with the aliens, I just don't remember... see! Do you remember our greeting, "Uchuu~?"

Tsukasa: I do not remember, and I do not even want to remember!

Leo: What're you so mad for? You're interesting! Ahahaha! That's great, that's great! I love interesting people! I love you~!

Tsukasa: Ah... I am... interesting? Uh....This is the first time that someone... has said something like that to me...

Leo: Is that so? I don't understand what you're saying, so you're interesting! Good and profound! Good and.... profound.... Ah....? Ahhh!? It's bubbling up! My inspiration! Hurry, hurry! If I don't write it down before I forget, a world treasure will be lost! My memory of the pieces of the composition, our hopes for space, they're collapsing!

Tsukasa: Please do not yell loudly so much. Do you not realize that you are drawing everyone's attention?

[Leo continues to run around like a maniac]

Leo: Ahahaha! Ahahahahaha! Ahahahahahahaha!

Tsukasa: (It seems that whatever I say will have no effect, doesn't it? He truly is a troublesome leader. Even so, I cannot come to hate this person. Of course, I cannot come to like him, either. I can neither come to hate him nor to like him. My impression of him is that he is a mysterious person. Shall the day come, some time from now, when I accept leader as our leader, I wonder? Even I, myself, do not know that. However, should the time come when I feel that I wish that I could, as to the leader, I will....)

[The music stops. Leo is still running around laughing and mumbling about inspiration]

Arashi: Sorry for keeping you waiting! I got a call from Izumi-chan and hurried on over here, you know!

[Ritsu pants, Leo can still be heard running around and lacking in the background]

Ritsu: Ahhh.... This is the first... I've run in a while, so.... I'm beat, but....

[Footstep sounds play as Izumi approaches]

Izumi: The King's still running around eccentrically, huh?

[The arrangement of Voice of Sword begins to play again]

Izumi: I thought he'd be long gone by now, but, Kasa-kun, you managed to stop him good.

Tsukasa: Could you say I managed to...? His inspiration or something came bubbling up, and he wouldn't listen to what I had to say...

Arashi: Once that switch gets flipped in him, there's no helping him anymore, is there? When he gets like this, there's nothing you can do but wait till he comes back, you know!

Tsukasa: I'm sorry. If I had addressed the subject at hand with him before he got like this, it wouldn't have come to this kind of...

Arashi: Really, there's no need for you to apologize, you know, Tsukasa-chan! Rather, I want to praise you! With the King like this, we can drag him away with us, you know! Normally, the King is so nimble, we wouldn't be able to catch him, and all.

Izumi: He's got some ridiculous physical ability, so yeah. For even you, part of the track and field club, to not be able to catch him, he'd be at a third place level, wouldn't he?

Arashi: Really, you know! If the King joined the track and field club, it wouldn't be a dream to conquer the nationals, you know! Well, even with our current members, we're certain to get to the national tournament, though! Oh, it's not the time to be standing around talking like this, you know! Before the King returns to his right mind, let's transport him back to the academy!

[Arashi laughs]

Arashi: Thank goodness the King got all fired up! Now then, here is where we're back in our element! Having come to receive their fine King, there is no enemy who can face the Knights! Let us bloom beautifully like flowers into our full glory!
