µ's needs a place to rehearse. Let's sing outside!
Honoka: We have to use an empty classroom today too?
Maki: We don't have much choice. They can't let us use the auditorium every time. Rin: I want to practice somewhere spacious... Kotori: Yeah, we'd all prefer that... Umi: Right? Honoka: All right! Kotori: ? Honoka: I'm going to go see if there's a better place we can use! Umi: Hey, Honoka! Nozomi: ...No stopping her now.
Hanayo: Yeah. You agree, right, Nico? Nico: That's right. Back then, everyone thought that group was the center of the idol scene. Hanayo: Singing, dancing, their looks, everything was amazing. And back then, when live shows were getting more important, their stage presence was just... Nico: Hm? Isn't that Honoka? Hanayo: What's she... Honoka! Honoka: Oh! Hi, Hanayo! Hi, Nico! Hanayo: We're just headed back to the classroom... What're you doing? Honoka: Oh... I was just looking around, hoping to find somewhere where we could dance... Hanayo: Somewhere to dance? Honoka: Yeah, somewhere bigger than an empty classroom. Somewhere where we can dance to our hearts' content! Nico: That's right! In an empty classroom, there's not a chance to show all of our charm, I think. Hanayo: Ha ha ha... But all the fields are being used by the sports clubs... Nico: There's probably a place we can use off-campus... Honoka: Oh yeah! You've got a point! Thanks, Nico! Thanks, Hanayo! Hanayo: Um... I wonder if it'll be all right?
Honoka: Ugh... It doesn't look like there's a good place anywhere...
Kotori: Pant... pant... Kotori: Honoka! Just how far are you going? Honoka: There isn't really anywhere good inside the school... Umi: That doesn't mean you can find somewhere outside, though... Honoka: A place where we could move around as much as we liked would be nice... We're not even going to find one outside, are we? Nozomi: We'd have to petition the student council for permission to hold activities off school grounds in the first place... Kotori: That reminds me. What about Eli? Nozomi: She's probably still in the student council office. When I left the room, she said she had some documents to sort out. Honoka: All right. Let's ask Eli of she can think about it for us! Umi: Of course it was going to end up like this...
Honoka: Eli! Eli: W-What is it? Honoka: I want to practice somewhere spacious! Eli: ...What happened? Umi: Honoka thinks the empty classroom is too small... Honoka: If it's small, then we'll have all kinds of problems. Umi: Yeah... Kotori: Could we get permission to use the auditorium? Eli: It wouldn't be impossible... But it takes a lot to prep that room. Eli: If you want to use the sound or the lights, it will take time... Honoka: Yeah... Eli: For now, if you want to practice in a spacious area, what about the courtyard? Honoka: The courtyard! Can we do that? Eli: There are other clubs that use it, but I think it should be fine if it's this late in the day. Umi: Would that work? Eli: Yeah. Just don't destroy the lawn, all right? Honoka: Let's go, let's go! Let's go now!
Eli: How's this? I think this should be spacious enough... Honoka: This should be fine! Rin: We can really move around! Honoka: Oh? (Surroundings): (whisper, whisper...) Umi: Looks like people are gathering... Nozomi: They're probably wondering what we're doing. Nico: What's up? Hanayo: Did something happen? Honoka: Oh, you two arrived at just the right time! Honoka: All right! Since we've got this audience here, why don't we do a song?
Rin: I feel great!
Hanayo: Live Shows outside are so much fun... Nico: That's right... Soon, we'll be in packed stadiums... Honoka: Maki! Honoka: How was it? Maki: ...How was what? Honoka: Moving around as the Leader. It's usually a bit difficult, right? Honoka: I think it should've been easier to move around here. Was I right? Maki: W-What? Is that the reason you spent so long looking for a spacious place? Honoka: That wasn't the only reason. I just wanted to do my best, too. Maki: ...You're silly. Honoka: Ah. Umi: ...That's something you would do, Honoka. Kotori: I think Maki is thankful, though. Rin: Honoka... Maki belongs to me, so please don't take her away... Maki: Since when did I belong to you? Kotori: Hee hee.
