House party on the roof! Some of our fondest memories.
|Nozomi: Eli, you mean we can use the roof?
ElI: Yes, I got permission.
Nico: Then it's settled. Let's do it today.
Nozomi: I can't wait!
Honoka: What is it? What are you going to do?
Kotori: Really!? That sounds great!
Rin: You mean to celebrate Honoka and Nico and I all passing?
Umi: I know what you mean... But it feels wrong somehow to just celebrate not failing...
Hanayo: A house party still sounds good, though.
Maki: It's not at a house, though, so I'm not sure we should call it a house party.
Rin: It's totally fine! You worry too much about details.
Nico: I agree. And also, this rooftop is like a home to all of us in µ's.
Eli: You look so happy, Nico.
Maki: Stop it! I'm getting embarrassed just looking...
Umi: Since we're calling it a house party, I assume there's nothing big involved, but do you need help anyway?
Hanayo: Are we all going to cook together, too?
Eli: Well, then let's divide into 3 groups: Preparations Team, Cooking Team, and Shopping Team.
Honoka: If we work hard preparing, we get a good party after. I'll do my best!
Nozomi: We're the Shopping Team, then!
Rin: Yeah! I can carry things!
Kotori: We'll get everything and divide it between us.
Rin: We'll want cola and orange juice and such to drink, too.
Nozomi: But drinks are heavy. Get paper cups and plates first. And I think we need party supplies, too.
Kotori: These paper napkins are cute! Nozomi, let's get these!
Rin: Ho ho ho! When I put on these glasses, I talk like an old man, too!
Nozomi: Okay then! 9 pairs if Groucho glasses!
Kotori: Don't you think that's a bit too many?
Nozomi: Is it? Then maybe 5 would be better?
Nozomi: Either way is great! And we'll need confetti poppers to make it a party, too.
Kotori: Now we just need to but drinks and the ingredients for the Cooking Team, and we're all set!
Nico: Cooking Team! We're going all out on this!
Umi: Of course I don't mind cooking... But I've never made anything for a party.
Nico: Even things like sandwiches are cuter if you wrap them like this, and tie a ribbon around the edges.
Eli: That is cute! They turn into rolled sandwiches, shaped kind of like candy.
Umi: I see... Nico, you've got to teach me more!
Umi: Even if some of it's too advanced, I want to copy you as much as I can.
Nico: But that's backwards! The trick is to make it cute without trying hard. Work with me, and I'll show you.
Eli: We're not inviting any guests, so let's just make things simple and quick.
Umi: Now I see... I was clearly putting far too much thought into it.
Nico: Just make simple, tasty things. Oh, and foods that everyone likes.
Eli: Hehehe. That means I need to make rice balls for Hanayo.
Umi: It's time to show off the skills we learned at the rice ball cooking lesson the other day!
Nico: Then let's get some rice ready. She'll eat a lot, so we need a big batch.
Umi: Alright, I'll start getting the vegetables ready.
Eli: With 9 people, everything goes fast. I wonder how everyone else is doing?
|Honoka: Ok... Here we go...
Maki: Are you alright, Honoka? Let me help.
Honoka: Thanks, Maki. This should be enough desks, right?
Maki: Yeah. And after this, a house party needs... decorations, maybe?
Honoka: Umm, maybe we could try flowers?
Hanayo: But flowers are expensive. We might not be able to afford many.
Honoka: Then how about making an origami chain?
Maki: For decorations, we need something that says "µ's."
Maki: I hope we don't need to spend a lot or make it stylish. I want house parties to be relaxed!
Honoka: Decorations that say "µ's"...
Maki: Umm, Hanayo? Would you mind drawing us something?
Maki: I've seen you drawing, Hanayo, and you're really good.
Honoka: Oh, that's so cool! I want to see your drawings, Hanayo!
Maki: This is so cute! You drew all of our faces.
Maki: There are smiling faces and upset faces, all kinds of expressions since so much has happened.
Hanayo: A picture like this, it seems like a memorial. I'm not good at many things, but I can draw at least.
Maki: At least...? It's awesome! I think you're amazing. You know all kinds of things.
Honoka: That's right! You know about being a school idol, you make great rice balls, and your pictures are cute!
Maki: Maybe we should try making something with construction paper, too?
Honoka: Yeah! That's good, too, but there's another thing I want to decorate with. Maki, come here.
Maki: Hey... Honoka, that tickles!
Honoka: Well, you see...
Maki: ...! I see. You definitely can't have µ's without that.
Honoka: Right?! Let's start getting ready! Here goes!
Kotori: I'm back!
Umi: I-Is that Rin... with the Groucho glasses?
Rin: That's correct!
Nozomi: They're cute, huh?
Nico: What are you talking about!? They're not cute at all!
Nozomi: But it they're lying around, I bet you'll put them on, Nico-cchi.
Nico: Th-That's not true!
Kotori: Aside from the glasses, we also got ingredients for the Cooking Team!
Umi: Thank you. We're almost read here, too, so with these we're in the finishing stages.
Rin: Ooh, it smells nice.
Eli: Will you help too, Rin? You can wrap seaweed around rice balls, right?
Rin: Sure! I'll wrap them all up, one after the other after the other...
Umi: The roof preparations should be done soon, too.
Eli: Let's all head up there!
Rin: The party's starting!
|Honoka: Everyone's here! Good job getting everything ready!
Umi: Are these... us?
Maki: We had Hanayo draw everyone from µ's. I think she really got us right!
Hanayo: Um... Hehe...
Nozomi: Your mouth looks like a cat's, too. It's really cute!
Eli: Nico, look below the crying Rin.
Hanayo: Err, that's because I drew it while the test was still on my mind.
Umi: There's a shrine gate, and a rare expression on her face.
Hanayo: Hehehe... Thanks, Rin.
Nozomi: What's wrong?
Honoka: A mustache...! Nozomi, when did you grow a beard and start needing glasses!?
Nozomi: Haha, they're Groucho glasses. I'm gonna tickle you!
Kotori: Groucho glasses are cute in a weird way, huh.
Umi: I'm not sure about that...
Kotori: Hey, Umi, I need a favor. I want to see you... wearing Groucho glasses!
Umi: Absolutely not!
Kotori: C'mon, Umi... If you wear them, I'm sure it'll be cute!
Rin: Well... We also have cat ears. Would you try those on?
Umi: O-Okay. Let's try these...
Hanayo: I'll go with cat ears, too.
Maki: Me too!
Nico: Ugh, which is better...
Nozomi: Nico-cchi, if you don't hurry, you won't have a choice. Eli, do you want cat ears too? They're pretty big, and really cute!
Honoka: I'm going with glasses too. Do you want some, Rin?
Maki: When Kotori wears them, she has this aura that just makes them work somehow.
Eli: And the last one is... cat ears for Nico, then.
Rin: Ah, Nico, you're disappointed? Maybe you would've preferred Groucho glasses instead?
Maki: Everyone has Groucho glasses or cat ears... This is pretty surreal.
Honoka: Want to have a game, cat ears versus Groucho glasses?
Hanayo: That's right! Then let's start eating.
|Umi: Now, I'd like to take the lead with a toast.
Kotori: Clap clap clap
Eli: Umi, it's a house party, so keep it short.
Rin: om nom nom...
Hanayo: I can't wait to see what Umi and everyone made for us.
Rin: nom nom nom...
Maki: Come one! We are all going to eat in a second. Couldn't you have waited that long?
Rin: Heh heh... The food was calling to me, though.
Nico: Somebody always eats before everyone else. They just can't help themselves.
Honoka: It really looks goo, too! Maybe I should get started...
Nozomi: Umi, you might want to start already.
Umi: I see! Then... Cheers!
Honoka: Gulp... mmm, it's great! This is just tomato and cheese, so why is it so good!?
Maki: It is, though. You can really taste the basil and olive oil in the salad!
Nozomi: And the sandwiches are cute, and delicious!
Rin: Hanayo, let's eat our rice balls together.
Hanayo: Ohh... So good... These rice balls are perfect, Rin!
Eli: Hehe, I'm glad everyone's enjoying it.
Nico: Fresh-cooked food with friends is always delicious.
Umi: It is! Let's eat while it's still hot.
Kotori: Whew... I'm stuffed!
Nico: There's plenty left, so we can eat more later. ...Er, are the rice balls already gone?
Eli: Want to just take it easy and chat now?
Honoka: Heh heh heh... It's too early to rest yet!
Maki: Actually, there's another thing here I want you to see.
Rin: What is it?
Hanayo: I'll pull back this cloth. And...!
Umi: This is...!
Kotori: Whoa, you decorated with µ's costumes!
Honoka: That's right, I decorated with the costumes Kotori made for us.
Maki: Honoka mentioned that these costumes probably held the most µ's memories for all of us.
Eli: It looks like there are comments on each. Let's read them.
Umi: µ's began here. It was rough sometimes with just 3 of us, but I haven't forgotten the feeling, even now.
Umi: Honoka... I made up my mind on stage that time, too.
Kotori: When I'd look at you, Honoka, I knew I couldn't give up...
Honoka: I couldn't have been on stage alone. I really want to thank Umi and Kotori for that.
Hanayo: I... I want to thank Rin and Maki for being there for me. I'm so glad you let the 3 of us into µ's!
Nozomi: Which now...? "It made us all more confident when Nico the idol expert joined µ's."
Nozomi: I hope she'll continue to teach me all kinds of things in the future, too, it says.
Nico: I-It was rough for me too... I was so happy when I joined µ's.
Nico: I was already kind of thinking I wanted to join, sort of... And... so... well... sniffle.
Eli: Nico... are you alright? Do you need a tissue?
Nico: N-No, I'm fine! Hey Rin, lend me your Groucho glasses.
Rin: Huh? Why?
Nico: I don't think my face suits heavenly "School Idol Nico"... And I don't want people to see.
Rin: Nico... you're fine. Your face is cute like always.
Maki: These costumes are from the set when Eli and Nozomi joined.
Eli: They are!
Maki: At first we didn't want to overdo it with expanding... But now I'm glad they're both with us.
Honoka: We all bonded because Eli joined us? I don't know if you'd call it a bond, but I feel like µ's got stronger.
Kotori: If Nozomi weren't here, µ's might have a different name... And I'm glad µ's is µ's!
Eli: Thank you... I'm glad I'm in µ's, aren't you, Nozomi?
Honoka: Hehehe... I'm kind of blushing.
Honoka: I'm blushing, and all this talking has made me hungry again!
Umi: Honoka, you do love to eat. I could go for a little more, too, though.
Maki: Looking back on things one at a time together... It's kind of nice.
Hanayo: Yeah! I'm so glad we got to have a house party together today.
