Maki: Hey, what's up? Kotori: Guess what, Maki! We found someone to help us out! Maki: That's great! I'm Maki Nishikino, a first-year student. Nice to meet you! Honoka: Maki always gives off this cool and mature vibe. But she's really nice! Maki: I-I'm not really... Maki: Anyway, what are you helping with? Umi: We thought we'd ask for help with Practices and Live Shows. Kotori: Is there anything else you'd like to ask for help with, Maki? Maki: Let me see, since you're helping... I think we should decide on our Goals together as a group. Honoka: Goals? Maki: That's right. We can set our own Goals as high as we want! Maki: But if we set the Goals too high, then we'll just end up getting worn out, right? Maki: So we need to set Goals that are above our level, so we can take things one step at a time. Umi: That's right... No matter what you're trying to improve, it;s improve to set your Goals effectively. Honoka: I kinda get it... But I kinda don't... Maki: Don't think about it too hard. Maki: Goals will come naturally. Think about it like this. Maki: Once you've completed a Goal, a new path will open up. Honoka: I see. That's the main point! Kotori: We're going to keep looking for the other members of µ's. What are you going to do, Maki? Maki: Is that so? Well, I'll come with you then. Maki: Hanayo was here just a minute ago... But I don't see her right now. Umi: I wonder where she went... Maki: How about Rin? I think she's near the school gates. Wanna head over there? Honoka: OK!
Rin: Would you like to join the idol club?
Honoka: What are you doing, Rin? Rin: Hey Honoka! I'm Scouting new Members! Rin: These days, you have to diversify your assets! Rin: In other words, our idol club needs to discover new talent. Maki: That's surprisingly logical, coming from Rin. Honoka: That's right! New talent! Kotori: We found someone to help us with our idol activities. Rin: Oh! I'm Rin Hoshizora, a first-year student. You can call me Rin. Rin: Are you going to be a school idol with us? Maki: They're not a school idol. They're just helping us with our idol activities. Umi: ...Yeah, we really need help in that area. Umi: I mean, there is a possibility that you could be a school idol, too. Kotori: Umi... Rin: If you're going to be helping us out, then you could also help us Scout. Kotori: When you're Scouting, you'll be able to make a bunch of new friends. Honoka: Yeah! That's really important, too. All right, let's do this!
Honoka: I see! This way, we can Scout all kinds of people!
Honoka: I wonder if we'll meet someone who's really good at singing and dancing, and who will do my homework for me every day? Umi: Not a chance. Rin: What kinds of people we'll meet... I can't even imagine. Honoka: I wonder if there's some kind of trick to Scouting? Rin: That's right... Maybe if we shouted like this... Rin: WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN THE IDOL CLUB? Rin: If we do that, then maybe someone good will come! Honoka: WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN THE IDOL CLUB? Rin: WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN THE IDOL CLUB? Umi: Let's leave them be. Maki: I agree. Kotori: Ha ha ha... Hanayo: Pant... pant... Finally... Caught... Up... Maki: Oh! Are you OK, Hanayo? Rin: A-Are you all right? Hanayo: I saw you just now... So I ran to catch up... Honoka: Sorry, Hanayo! We didn't notice... Hanayo: It's fine... More importantly! Um... You're here... to help us out, right? Hanayo: I'm Hanayo Koizumi, and I'm a first-year student! Kotori: Hanayo knows an awful lot about school idols. Honoka: Hanayo, is there anything you'd like help with? Hanayo: T-There is! Hanayo: With school idols, the Team you've put together for the song is essential. Hanayo: What kind of group would be best? I think you have to look at it from the outside and think of all the variables. Umi: That's right. It might be easier to create a group if you look at it from an outsider's perspective. Hanayo: I'm sorry for asking you do something so complicated, all of the sudden... Honoka: But I'm sure you'll be fine! Umi: Well, now you've met all of the first-year members. Honoka: Yeah! Let's go look for the third-year students now!
