We are Aqours! Edit
Introducing the nine girls of Aqours!
|Dia: What exactly were you thinking, Mari?
Dia: This is supposed to be Aqours' initial introduction. We should be doing it in the club room, shouldn't we?
Dia: That's not an answer.
Kanan: Is it that big of a deal?
Dia: Dear me... You two are incorrigible.
Kanan: Ha, ha, ha. Dia, you overthink things. The place doesn't matter as long as we introduce ourselves.
Kanan: Mind if I start?
Kanan: I'm Kanan Matsuura. I love the sea, I love Uchiura... I guess I'm just your typical Uchiura girl.
Kanan: I'm also a diver. I want everyone in the world to learn about the joys of the sea... I get that from my grandfather.
Dia: Don't let her looks fool you. She's quite a shrewd businesswoman.
Kanan: Ha, ha, ha! I'm not in it to drum up business. I honestly just want to increase awareness about the sea.
Kanan: I think I'm more suited to swimming underwater than being a school idol, but I'm not one to turn down a challenge just because I'm not naturally good!
Kanan: School idols treasure their friends above all else. I think being an idol will become very important to me in time.
Mari: Oh, I'm not planning on stopping with just a few happy memories.
Mari: Have you taken a good look around town? Uchiura is such a beautiful place.
Mari: My father runs an international hotel chain, so I've travelled all over the world.
Kanan: Wow, really?
Dia: Mari, you're exaggerating again.
Mari: I would never! I knew right away I'd enjoy day of my life in this wonderful, shiny town. I felt it deep in my heart!
Mari: And we've gathered a bevy of beauties in Aqours that even the town itself can't outshine.
Mari: My dream is to take us higher and higher!
Dia: Sail... You know you can get to Tokyo from here without a boat, right?
Kanan: So, you're not just here to make happy memories... I could learn a thing or two from you.
Dia: It's a good point. You'll never get anywhere if you give up before you even get started.
Dia: Ahem. Moving on...
Dia: I am Dia Kurosawa. I'm a senior here at Uranohoshi Girls' High School, and the student council president as well.
Kanan: She's smart, beautiful, and a natural leader!
Kanan: Probably. They're both very beautiful, even if their personalities are completely different.
Dia: Originally, I was opposed to the whole idea of Aqours.
Kanan: Oh no, not this again. You're into it now, so what different does it make?
Mari: I agree. There's no need to dredge up the past as long as you're amenable to it now.
Mari: Honestly Dia, it's not cute at all.
Dia: I know... that I'm not like Ruby.
Kanan: Dia, that's not what she meant.
Kanan: If you don't show hoe you feel right now, it'll seem like you're the only one who isn't motivated.
Dia: That would... be regrettable. You see, at first I was opposed to Aqours, but now...
Kanan: *Chuckle* But now what?
Mari: Pfft! Ha, ha, ha! You approve? Oh Dia, you're serious to a fault.
Dia: What?! That wasn't supposed to be funny.
Mari: Loosen up a little. Just say something casual, like how you really like Aqours now.
Mari: You do like Aqours, don't you?
Dia: Of course I do. I just need some time to prepare myself before talking about the things I love.
Dia: Please stop teasing me.
Mari: So, as you can see, Aqours is very near and dear to all three of us.
Dia: Indeed. And I'm sure the other six members feel the same way.
Mari: After we're done here, we're all supposed to go to Chika's house for a µ's DVD viewing party!
Dia: That's right. As the old saying goes, you must know yourself as well as your enemy.
Dia: Learning about your enemy is the first step.
