|Heeey, transfer student! Over here♪|
|Today’s finally the day of the “circus,” and the weather’s great! Fufufu, it’s kind of a breath of fresh air meeting transfer student-chan when it’s not a school day~♪|
|Now that you mention it, it’s no wonder it feels different; she’s not in her school uniform.
The “circus” is still a school event, so students of Yumenosaki Academy are required to wear their uniforms, y’know~?
Didn’t anyone explain that to you? Did you guys all forget that she’s a transfer student?
|Ah, sorry. I completely forgot. Transfer student-chan just fits in so well, you know? To be honest, she hardly seems like a transfer student at all~|
|Then why do you call her “transfer student”? Just use her name.
Well, since you’ve always called her that, it’s probably hard to find the right timing to switch to calling her by name.
|Should we take this opportunity to do just that? And get closer to her while Akehoshi-kun and Hidaka-kun are away?|
|You’re so bad, Makoto. But should we do it? Should we get more friendly with the transfer student by ourselves~♪?
After all, they’re not here because they got to do that promotional magazine interview. It’s lonely being the only ones left out from that, right, Makoto?
|Yeah, yeah. There wasn’t a photoshoot this time, so I could have gone too. It’s so sad; even though the fact that we all get along so well is supposed to be “Trickstar’s” selling point.|
|If those two get so popular that they go off on their own, Makoto, you and I should just form our own “unit” and show them who’s boss~♪|
|Yeah. I’ll be counting on you when that time comes! You and I are friends ‘till the end, Isara-kun! ☆|
| But now’s not the time for that. It’s almost time for the “circus” to start, so let’s go tell performers to break a leg and then head for our seats.
We’re only here as spectators today, so let’s enjoy ourselves to the fullest! ♪
|Oh, okay, so we’re allowed to go to the dressing rooms to see the performers before they go on? I guess you can’t say we’re completely unrelated to the show, after all.
Everyone must be getting stage fright, so let’s go cheer them up~♪
|They’re not like you, Makoto. This is “fine” and “2wink” we’re talking about. I doubt that they would get stage fright.
But, they did get us free tickets in return for joining in on their practices, after all.
The least we could do is go and thank them for the tickets.
Even if we’re normally enemies, we’re still all idols from the same school. And personally, since a lot of people I know from the Student Council are performing, that just makes me want to cheer them on even more! ♪
| There’s a zoo and an amusement park nearby, so a lot of guests might be going there, instead.
I think the amount of attention this event’s gotten, plus the sheer number of guests gathered here might make “SakuraFes” pale in comparison.
|“fine” probably left “SakuraFes” to us so that they could focus their attention on the “circus”.
It’s rare to see this many people at a school event, after all.
They’re really showing off the difference between us and them, even before the “circus” has even begun. But that’s exactly why “fine” can’t afford to fail here.
This is a large-scale off-campus DreamFes…. In terms of rank, it’d probably be higher than an “S1”. Whether they fail or succeed, there’s still going to be some kind of impact.
We need to brace ourselves and watch them closely. If we slack off, they might leave us so far behind, we’ll never be able to catch up to them again.
|That’s true. Ahh, now I’m starting to get nervous too. ….Huh?|
|Whoa, what’s wrong, Makoto? Don’t just cling to me all of a sudden, you’re suffocating me….|
|Ah, sorry, it’s because Oogami-senpai is over there! I’ve just developed a conditioned reflex to hide whenever I see him!|
|Just how scared of him are you? He’s not like an actual wild dog or anything, so he won’t try to bite you the moment he sees you. You know that, right?|
