Speaking of Summer... (Rare #28)
|Honoka: I have to help out a lot at my family's shop during summer break.
Honoka: We get especially busy around the equinox. That's when I have to help make coated rice balls.
Honoka: This is the first time I've been a school idol. There's practice and lots of other things I can't do at home. So I help around the shop when I have time.
If I Knew Magic (Rare #37)
|Honoka: If I could use magic? That's a tough one.
Honoka: I'd have to go with teleportation!
Honoka: That way, you can just sleep in really late and arrive at school that instant you leave the house!
Honoka: You don;t need it, because you have no trouble waking up?
A Place to Go (Rare #46)
|Honoka: If I could anywhere... So many place... How about an amusement park! What do you think?
Honoka: It's be like a date then, right?
Honoka: Cotton candy... The ferris wheel... And roller coasters, of course! There's so many different attractions to try!
Small Miracles (Rare #298)
|Honoka: Small miracles? Of course, like how I'm a school idol in µ's!
Honoka: My whole life, I had never thought to try becoming an idol, so it's really miraculous.
Honoka: Oh, but that's not really a small miracle. I think it's more like a really, really big one.
Honoka: Oh! Maki gave me some foreign-looking bread that was all melty and delicious. I think that fits!
Honoka: Finding a new, tasty bread, that's my small miracle!
Honoka: With miracles this small, I should get about one month, right? That's pretty good value.
Winter Means... (Rare #334)
|Honoka: Heya! Heading home?
Honoka: I was just heading home too. Let's go together.
Honoka: It already feels totally like winter. I love it when the leaves have fallen have fallen and you can see so much of the sky.
Honoka: We could play if it snowed, but it doesn't really do that much around here.
Honoka: I mean, I love playing in the snow, but I also love looking out of the window at night as it falls.
Honoka: And it's a little exciting to think about whether anyone else is watching the same snow, and if you're watching it together.
Honoka: Nobody ever says, "did you see the snow yesterday?" though. So I just wonder to myself.
A Wish for the Future (Rare #430)
|Honoka: What do I wish for my future? Hmm...
Honoka: Honestly, singing and dancing with µ's every day is pretty much a dream come true.
Honoka: If I had one wish, it would be for these days to go on forever!
Honoka: But that's not really a wish for the future, is it?
Honoka: I wish for the chance to tell every single one of them. I'm just not sure that's possible.
Honoka: I hope we put on shows in lots of different places and sing our songs for lots of different people.
Honoka: I want me gratitude to come out in every word I sing.
Honoka: It's not that I don't do that already. i just feel there's so much more gratitude I can express!
Last Night's Dream (Rare #494)
|Honoka: Man, the ocean really is the source of all life!
Honoka: Well, like, all living creatures came from the ocean, and return there when they die, right?
Honoka: And while I was riding him, he jumped way up in the sky!
Honoka: He jumped so high I was within arm's reach of a huge rainbow! And then... Then I woke up.
Honoka: Isn't that awesome? I bet I'm the only person in the world to experience that.
Honoka: A good dream is the best way to kick off a good day!
A Different Me (Rare #679)
|Honoka: A different version of myself? Well, I do have an ideal version of a school idol.
Honoka: Umi, Eli, and Kotori are perfect examples. They really have their acts together!
Honoka: I want to follow their examples and be responsible, too.
Honoka: I want to take more responsibility for my actions, and be someone everyone will trust.
Honoka: I want to be someone people will feel comfortable following. You know what? I'm just gonna do my best to be that ideal school idol!
Shining So Bright (Rare #749)
|Honoka: Something I like that shines bright? Oh, I love shiny things!
Honoka: And this is a pen with sparkly ink. I usually conk out pretty quickly once class starts, so there's plenty of ink left. Ha, ha...
Honoka: I really want this one specific sticker, so Nozomi taught me how to awaken my x-ray vision, but I still can't get it to work.
Honoka: Wait... Did you ask everyone else in µ's that same question? Was everyone else's answers cooler than mine?
Summertime is... (Rare #29)
|Eli: I have student council activities to perform over summer break, too. I help out locally and prepare for the new school term.
Eli: But if you're going to come visit me like this, then I don't think I see anything wrong with it.
Eli: Do you think that you could come see me evert day, starting tomorrow?
If I Knew Magic (Rare #38)
|Eli: Come to think of it, I wonder what all the students think about school in general. I'd love to read their minds.
Eli: Listening to different opinions... I bet I'd hear lots of ideas on how to improve school life for all the students.
A Place to Go (Rare #47)
|Eli: Maybe Russia, where my grandmother is.
Eli: Oh, and the food is delicious too.
Eli: Especially pelmeni my grandmother makes. They're my favorite. They're so amazing.
Eli: I'd love to treat you to some!
What I Like (Rare #285)
|Eli: My likes... maybe making accessories?
Eli: I'm not very good at sewing, but I'm actually surprisingly good with tools like these. Weird, huh?
Eli: On days I want to spend quietly, I just use one natural stone, and on days I want to be powerful, I go with a dramatic long necklace.
Eli: What's more, the craft shop is really trendy, and just shopping there is exciting.
Eli: Come with me next time! It would be even better if you gave me feedback while I was there.
Eli: What items do I recommend? Well... if you keep it simple, and add one major accent, it'll be nice and consistent.
Eli: For that matter, I saw some cute, blonde Matryoshka doll parts there last week.
Eli: I just know those would be cute on a bracelet or a backpack charm.
Small Miracles (Rare #299)
|Eli: What was miraculous to me? Meeting everybody, I guess?
Eli: I mean, I never imagined each day could be so much fun.
Eli: Practicing hard together, wanting to improve, and laughing about stupid stuff together...
Eli: should it all be this much fun? Every day is so satisfying that I really wonder.
Eli: If we keep it up forever, it might not always be fun.
Eli: But even so, if we're together, I think we're strong enough to get through anything.
Eli: I hope we can stay together forever.
|Winter Means... (Rare #335)|
|Eli: What a coincidence. I was just heading home, too.
Eli: I don't mind walking alone to have some time to think to myself,
Eli: It's easy to become lazy in winter, but you're not just lying around in bed every day, are you?
Eli: Yeah. I'm glad to hear that. It's a waste to just sit around all winter.
Eli: We've still got to study, though.
Eli: Hehe, you're cute when you lose your cool.
Eli: Let's go to the library later. No chatter, okay? We're finishing all our studying done in one push.
Eli: Then we can cook up a plan to go somewhere! Sound good?
A Wish for the Future (Rare #431)
|Eli: What do I wish for? Hmm...
Eli: For Otonokizaka to not be shut down. We've put so much into this school so far, which I guess is why it's still open, but yeah...
Eli: Is suppose if we're going to dream bigger... Instead of wishing the school not to shut down, I'd wish for a lot more new students to enroll.
Eli: Hanayo and the other freshmen are all in one single classroom. We need more students. It's be fun with at least FIVE more classes worth!
Eli: The school would be more lively, the clubs and sports teams, and school in general would be more fulfilling.
Eli: I know high school is only three years out of a whole lifetime. I want to make those three years so special they can change that lifetime for the better!
Eli: I'll continue to do everything I can to make my dream a reality.
Eli: I think the most important thing is to get people to enroll is make sure each individual student has a fun, productive high school life.
Last Night's Dream (Rare #495)
|Eli: What did I dream about last night? Wh-Why do you ask?
Eli: Anyways, umm... How'd you do on the classic literature quiz?
Eli: You still want to know what I dreamt about last night?
Eli: Promise you won't laugh? I dreamt that I was carrying an egg on a spoon and trying to run without dropping it.
Eli: I was terrified the egg was going to fall off! Eventually I made it to the goal, and right as I jumped up to celebrate... I woke up.
Eli: I started laughing the second my eyes opened. Can you believe such a silly dream made me feel so afraid?
Eli: Maybe it means I'm nervous about our upcoming µ's show.
Party Time (Rare #570)
|Eli: Today is the µ's party. You're coming as well of course, aren't you?
Eli: I've made borscht for everyone many times, so it seems that everyone has learned to love it. I'm so happy!
Eli: We always make our own food and drink when we have a party. It might not make for a particularly luxurious party, but it's nice.
Eli: Not everyone used to be like that. Some of us used to like being alone, and some of us didn't use to really like boisterous situations.
Eli: Let's eat a lot, laugh a lot, and make lots of fun memories today!
A Different Me (Rare #680)
|Eli: A different side of myself? Let me think about that...
Eli: I think people tend to look at me as very capable since I'm the student council president.
Eli: The truth is, I'm really not like that. I obviously don't want to be an embarrassment to the council, so I try as hard as I can to carry out my duties.
Eli: But with µ's, I feel like everyone's carrying me along, more than the other way around.
Eli: Umi's far more capable than me. And you might not think so, but Nico's extremely responsible, too!
Eli: So I do feel like a different person when Im with µ's. But maybe... maybe it's who I really am?
|Shining So Bright (Rare #750)|
|Eli: Something I like that shines brightly?
Eli: Let me think about that. I think the eyes of a person with a dream are the shiniest things you'll ever see.
Eli: People with dreams are very strong... I respect them.
Eli: I wonder how I appear to others. I feel like I've got a dream of my own, but can I really say I'm dedicated to the point that I won't let anything stop me?
Eli: Next time we should both open up about our biggest dreams... just the two of us.
Snowed In (Rare #802)
|Eli: The snow's really coming down. I bet it'll be piled very high by the time school's out.
Eli: For club today, we should just gather in the room and discuss our plans for µ's.
Eli: Are you going to join them? A snowball fight sounds like fun.
Eli: I want to take care of a little paperwork first. *Chuckle* Listen to them laughing. Sounds like they're having a blast!
Eli: Oh... You're gone already. Guess I'm all alone...
Eli: I thought you went outside! What is that? A snowball...? So, you want me to join, huh? Geez, talk about insistent.
|What Does Summer Remind You of? (Rare #30)|
Kotori: Summer... huh~?
Kotori: I... Hmm... Umm...
Kotori: Ah, actually, what does summer remind you of?
Kotori: Hmm, I see~ Then that'll be what it reminds me of too!
Kotori: Huh? I'm not a copycat~ I just thought it'd be nice to be the same as you. ♪ Ehehe.
|If You Could Use Magic (Rare #39)|
Kotori: Hmm... I'd want to be able to have everyone in µ's, all my friends and family, and everyone around me to live happily!
Kotori: Because I'm already happy enough as is. Because you're right here by my side...
Kotori: But if I must... Hmm, let's see...
Kotori: ...I guess I'd like to be able to talk to alpacas?
|A Place to Go (Rare #48)|
Kotori: Alpacas are so cute, you know? So soft... And fluffy... And soft...
Kotori: Did you know? Alpacas are related to camels.
Kotori: If you look closely, you can see that camels and alpacas have the same round eyes!
|What I Like (Rare #286)|
Kotori: I like make candy and costumes and things, but I guess you already knew that.
Kotori: So I'll tell you a total secret, one I haven't told anyone else yet. The truth is...
Kotori: I like to touch fluffy things.
Kotori: It's not shocking at all? Aw, I was sure you'd be surprised!
Kotori: You know about the alpacas at Otonokizaka High, right? I've been getting to know them a little, lately.
Kotori: Sometimes, they lick my face, but I've gotten kind of used to their scratchy tongues.
Kotori: Hehehe. That's my secret today. Just between us, okay?
|Small Miracles (Rare #300)|
Kotori: I think the trick to making small miracles happen is in the way you prepare when you ask for one.
Kotori: Nothing happens when you sit around, wanting on to happen without doing anything.
Kotori: For example, if all we did was think about good shows, they wouldn't turn out very well, right?
Kotori: So we prepare costumes that will really shine on stage, and practice singing and dancing, and call upon miracle like we're saying, "Over here, Miracle!"
Kotori: Then the miracle is like, "Those girls are trying hard, I'll go be a miracle for them!" At least that's what I think.
Kotori: Hehe. That's my opinion as part of the miracle that is µ's.
|Winter Means... (Rare #336)|
Kotori: I wish I could grow feathers, and be fluffy and fuzzy like them.
Kotori: Haha. I also like to think about how to stay warm through the winter.
Kotori: I've got to teach you how to handle the winter cold.
Kotori: And when you get home, wash your hands and gargle. You've got to kick out the germs that cause colds.
Kotori: You should also humidify your room. If you don't have a humidifier, put cups of water or wet towels around. It'll help your throat.
Kotori: That's how I spend the winter. We'll hang out again when you feel better!
|A Wish for the Future (Rare #432)|
Kotori: What do I wish for my future?
Kotori: Actually, I did have one dream in particular. I haven't exactly abandoned it, although I do feel a bit differently nowadays.
Kotori: You know how I like designing clothes? One day I wish I could see my designs exhibited in fashion show.
Kotori: But if I didn't have everyone from µ's around, I'd be so lonely.
Kotori: I don't need a fashion show that doesn't include everyone else.
Kotori: Right now I'm at my happiest standing on the stage with the rest of µ's.
Kotori: So right now I'd say I don't have a wish for the future!
Kotori: That's not an answer? Hehehe... I guess I'll have to get back to you.
|Last Night's Dream (Rare #496)|
Kotori: *Giggle* I'm in a great mood.
Kotori: Last night I had the best dream ever.
Kotori: Slowly crawling along atop a rain-covered leaf. Moving around was so much fun!
Kotori: And since I was a snail, I left a shiny little trail behind me.
Kotori: There was this beautiful rainbow bridge stretched across the sky. It was just breathtaking.
Kotori: Then, then I met the other snail whose shell was painted with pretty pastel colors. Come to think of it, that snail looked really familiar.
|Party Time! (Rare #571)|
Kotori: Ding dong! I've come to pick you up!
Kotori: ....Did you forget? Today is the µ's party. Let's go together.
Kotori: Huh? You haven't decided what to wear yet?
Kotori: Plus I'm always watching you, so I know exactly what clothes suit you.
Kotori: Heeheehee... So don't worry about it. Leave it to me.
|A Different Me (Rare #681)|
Kotori: A different side of me?
Kotori: I feel like I turn into a different person when I'm wearing a costume!
Kotori: If it's a cute outfit, I feel like a cute girl.
Kotori: If it's something cool, I feel cool!
Kotori: Say I'm going to meet someone I like. I feel like things play out better if I put on an outfit that makes me look pretty!
Kotori: Today I was looking forward to meeting you, so I wore one of my favorite outfits! Oh, b-but don't read too much into that.
Speaking of Summer... (Rare #31)
|Umi: Every year I go to a training camp for archery club... But this year, I've also got my school idol activities.
Umi: I'm the only member of µ's who's also in the archery club, so we'll be parted for a while.
Umi: Lately, the nine of us have been together all the time. It'll feel a bit weird being away.
Umi: If I said that I was lonely... Would you come along with me?
If I Knew Magic (Rare #40)
Umi: What would I do if I could use magic...?
Umi: Well, of course I've thought that it would be nice if I could use magic from time to time...
Umi: But you shouldn't trust magic. I think you need to rely on your own strength to do things.
Umi: Well then... I'd like to try to fly. Just a little.
Umi: I-I mean it's not something I could possibly naturally do, right?!
A Place to Go (Rare #49)
|Umi: As long as I can go with you, anywhere is fine.
Umi: Hmm... If I must choose , I'd have to say somewhere quiet.
Umi: Where no one would bother us, and it would just be us two...
What I Like (Rare #287)
|Umi: My like? Maybe calligraphy.
Umi: Because it sharpens your mind, similar to archery.
Umi: Just like I release an arrow, I let the brush run free across the page. It's simple, but can be as deep a challenge as you choose to make it.
Umi: Letting all your mental and physical uncertainy out in writing is beautiful, yet terrifying... and incredibly satisfying.
Umi: Of course, I take breaks. I go out with Honoka and Kotori and I also take time to relax and read.
Umi: Although when I read, I get invested in the story, and actually end up more worked up and tired sometimes.
Umi: Bittersweet love storied are beautiful, but usually I want all the protagonists to end up happy.
Umi: I wonder how it will be when I fall in love, and how it will end.
Umi: Haha. who knows, right?
Small Miracles (Rare #301)
|Umi: Small miracles? Like my being here right now?
Umi: It's miraculous that I'm standing here as a school idol right now, and so is the fact that Honoka and everyone else are with me.
Umi: I'm glad I didn't refuse, back when she started things.
Umi: Thanks to that decision, I made eight very important friends.
Umi: If you go further back, it's kind of miraculous we were born around the same time and went to the same school.
Umi: When you look at it that way, nothing is given when it comes to people.
Umi: I'll try to continue going through life while staying grateful for everything. So, thank you.
Winter Means... (Rare #337)
|Umi: You know, you'll get sick sleeping in a place like this.
Umi: You are so helpless without me. Hehe.
Umi: Wh-wh-when did you wake up!? What? Just now?
Umi: O-Okay then. No, you were just sleeping, so I tried to put my jacket over you... sorry.
Umi: The sun sets early in the winter: it's already completely dark.
Umi: We can;t practice quite as long on the roof, now. I feel like that's a little bit unfortunate.
Umi: But it's offset by how nice morning practice feels in the crisp winter air. It's best to enjoy the good parts of all seasons.
Umi: Hehe. We should really head home now. You just woke up, so you'll get sick if you don't stay warm.
Umi: I'll loan you my scarf. Shall we go?
A Wish for the Future (Rare #433)
Umi: What do I wish for?
Umi: It's a bit embarrassing to say out loud. I suppose if it would be liberating, though.
Umi: Huh? L-Liberating has nothing to do with taking my clothes off! Geez, what's on your mind?!
Umi: I'm not talking about something superficial. This is more pf an internal improvement.
Umi: I tend to keep my thoughts bottled up inside instead of expressing them.
Umi: My usual excuse is something trivial, like not being able to find the right timing.
Umi: But I... I think maybe it's a much deeper problem.
Umi: Take Honoka. I'm always scolding her to think before she speaks. Yet at the same time I envy her.
Party Time! (Rare #572)
Umi: We are having a party today. Are the preparations complete?
Umi: Wh-what are you saying all of the sudden? Haven't we been preparing for this for ages?
Umi: Unbelievable! You whine like a child.... We are the only people who are going to be there, so there's nothing to be worried about.
Umi: .... I guess there is nothing for it then.
Umi: OK, I'll be your escort. If I go with you, will you be able to relax?
Umi: Taking your hand like this and going to a party isn't bad. Right, let's go!
Clear Your Mind! (Super Rare #740)
|Umi: Okay, everyone. Once more, from the top.
Umi: What do you mean, it's too cold to sing? We're singing hymns as a choir for the kindergarteners tomorrow!
Umi: It's not nearly cold enough to be complaining about it. Clear your mind, focus, and even snow will feel warm to the touch!
Umi: Hmm? Yes, I realize it's actually snowing now. No wonder it's so chilly... Err, nothing! I'm not the least bit cold!
Umi: It's not Christmas Eve yet, but watching the snow fall at this time of year does feel like something special. I suppose playing around a bit isn't such a bad thing.
Umi: Who threw that snowball?! Don't get mad when I return fire!
Shining So Bright (Rare #752)
Umi: Things I like that are shiny? Sorry, I'm not really that interested in accessories and whatnot.
Umi: Oh, but now that you mention it, Nico once said something like that to me.
Umi: She said that school idols have a particularly brilliant glow about them.
Umi: Since she's such a big fan of school idols, when she first said that, I figured that school idols actual look like they are glowing to her.
Umi: But now that I've seen other school idols perform with my own eyes, I can totally relate.
Umi: The sight of them pulling out all the stops to give their best performances, and the effort put into the results to the audience members...
Umi: I hope I shine like that when I take the stage. I'll need to redouble my efforts!
Speaking of Summer... (Rare #32)
|Rin: When I hear, "summer", I think of playing in the water.
Rin: I went to the pool with everyone in µ's recently.
Rin: I'm the best swimmer in the group.
Rin: OK, you move your hands like this and pull, and you move your legs like this... And then... and then... Huh? You don't get it?
If I Knew Magic (Rare #41)
|Rin: I want to be able to get good grades on tests without having to study...
Rin: Then I could play all day and practice my singing and dancing!
Rin: Which one? It'd have to be English, right? But also math... Hmm... So hard to choose!
A Place to Go (Rare #50)
|Rin: I'd love to take a tour of a bunch of delicious ramen shops!
Rin: What kind of ramen do you like?
Rin: Me? Well... Hee hee... I love every kind of ramen!
What I Like (Rare #288)
|Rin: My likes would be moving around!!
Rin: I like dancing, but I really like zoom running, and boing jumping.
Rin: You don't know what zoom and boing mean?? Those are my names for sprints and hurdles.
Rin: What? Aren't I bad at hurdles?
Rin: Of course I fall sometimes, but I don't have time to regret or be sad. I just get up without thinking and dash off!
Rin: When I'm jumping hurdles on a track, all I can hear is my breath going "gasp, gasp". My head is completely clear of thoughts. Neat, huh??
Rin: It's like my body answers the call to run without thinking! It's refreshing, and feels great.
Rin: So when my head feels all messy and confused, I go running alone with a zoom!
Rin: It clears up confusion, and it's even more fun when you're not confused. Running is great!
Rin: Come running with me sometimes, I'll blow the started whistle for you to help out!
Small Miracles (Rare #302)
|Rin: Small miracle? Of course I know a few!
Rin: I'm pretty sure it should, though.
Rin: Then what about calling it a small miracle that I'm a school idol?
Rin: It's weird that someone like me could make it as one, right?
Rin: I'm always running around outside without thinking, so it seems pretty miraculous to me.
Rin: Hehe, a miracle caused by everyone in µ's and the people who cheered me on.
A Wish for the Future (Rare #434)
|Rin: A wish for the future, huh?
Rin: Hmm... Nothing really comes to mind, to be honest.
Rin: An adult who works her tail off, studies super-hard, and still has time to dance like crazy!
Rin: I mean, I can't picture what that'd be like, but wouldn't it be cool?
Rin: Really? I think cool adult Rin has a lot of great qualities too.
Rin: Ah, whatever. Enough talk, I'm starving!
Last Night's Dream (Rare #498)
|Rin: What'd I dream about last night?
Rin: Uhh, hmm. It was really awesome! I just... can't remember what it was about...
Rin: Let me think... Just a second.
Rin: This stinks. I know it was a really good one, too.
Rin: It's so easy to remember what I was dreaming about the seconds I wake up, but by the time I get out of bed I've already forgotten it.
Rin: Maybe I should write them down before I get up. Oh, but I bet I'll forget to do that, too.
Rin: If I think about pens and paper as I'm going to sleep, will they be there is my dreams?
A Different Me (Rare #683)
|Rin: Huh? A different side of myself? I dunno... I can't really think of any.
Rin: Oh. You know what? I think since I joined µ's, the every day part has changed a little.
Rin: Before µ's I'd always be running all over the place, I had trouble studying... Hanayo and I were still best friends, but...
Rin: I mean, I get to wear adorable outfits and sing and dance to my heart's content. I think I'm staring to fit the role a little better!
Shining So Bright (Rare #753)
|Rin: Name something I like that's shiny?
Rin: My last name, Hoshizora, means starry sky. Ever since I was a little kid, I've spent lots of time stargazing.
Rin: Whenever I'd screw up at school, or fail somehow, or when things weren't just going my way, I'd look to the sky.
Rin: Watching all the different stars twinkling and sparkling always makes me feel worked up and excited inside.
Rin: I don't know much about the different kinds of stars, but I do know that all starlight is beautiful, and it never fails to cheer me up.
Accessory First-Timer (Ultra Rare #881)
|Rin: So cute! This accessory-making stuff's totally adorable!
Rin: Our next costume have lots and lots of accessories, so I'm helping make them. We're gonna hang them on our skirts, or waists... pretty much everywhere!
Rin: Hmm? Oh, are you gonna help, too? Thanks! These are for making bracelets. You just gotta string the beads. Simple, right?
Rin: I'm not usually good at stuff that requires a lot of dexterity. But for some reason, when it's for µ's, I work on it forever without ever getting fed up.
Rin: Still, I'm pretty slow, so I'm staying behind to finish my part. *Giggle* Aren't I a dedicated worker?
Rin: I wonder if she gets overwhelmed sometimes... I can't use a sewing machine, but there's gotta be a way for me to help her more.
Speaking of Summer... (Rare #33)
|Maki: I usually spend the summer on the terrace of my family's vacation home reading a book and listening to the sound of the waves.
Maki: But lately, it's been really hectic what with the practice and training camps with µ's...
Maki: I like to spend summer in quiet solitude, but spend time with everyone hasn't been bad.
If I Knew Magic (Rare #42)
|Maki: Why do you ask about magic? Something so completely unscientific just does not exist in this world. How stupid.
Maki: Even if you say "if", there's no chance of that "if" ever happening. I'm telling you.
Maki: I don't need magic. I make things happen through my own hard work!
A Place to Go (Rare #51)
|Maki: I'd love to visit a place where the stars are beautiful, I think.
Maki: This may be a bit unexpected, but I really enjoy stargazing.
Maki: Will you take me sometime?
Maki: That's too bad. Looks like I'll just have to teach you.
Maki: Wouldn't it be wonderful, listening to my explanation in a natural planetarium?
What I Like (Rare #289)
|Maki: My likes? Well, there's piano, but actually I enjoy looking at the sky even more.
Maki: To me, every star in the sky is precious. Each one feels important to me.
Maki: I always used to watch the stars when things were bad. I'd encourage myself by thinking "you're not the only one working hard. Be like that star, and keep at it."
Maki: So I really hated starless nights. I felt like someone who supported me was missing.
Maki: But not anymore.
Maki: Now I think it's okay to take it easy when I'm tired or sad. Like how the stars are hidden when it rains.
Maki: But it's not like the stars actually stop shining just because it rains.
Maki: When you're not able to do your best, just accept it! It's so obvious, yet I only just figured it out. So I'm a little slow, I guess.
Maki: I like the sky without starts now, too. It feels like the stars are recharging, to shine more.
Maki: Let's g star-gazing sometime. Rain or shine, I'm fine with either.
Small Miracles (Rare #303)
|Maki: Huh? Nothing miraculous has ever really happened to me.
Maki: Doesn't the word just make you suspicious?
Maki: I don't really say this, because people react oddly...
Maki: but I think that miracles are built on a foundation of our efforts.
Maki: But... I am glad that Honoka came to the music room that one time, though.
Maki: I got into µ's because of that, and got close to Hanayo and Rin, too.
Maki: That day might be the only thing I'd call a miracle. Just don't tell anyone, okay?
|Winter Means... (Rare #339)|
Maki: Good morning. It's freezing these days.
Maki: But we've been practicing well lately, and I'm getting better at handling the cold... I think.
Maki: Running has really grown on me since I started going with Honoka and everyone.
Maki: Ah! Your face says you don't believe me! I really am faster than I used to be, okay?
Maki: Fine, Then I'll show you. Want to race to that corner? I'm not going to lose.
Maki: Gasp... pant... Hehe, see, I won!
Maki: I guess you need to practice more, too.
Maki: Don't plan anything for your next day off, we're going running together. Try not to get left behind!
Last Night's Dream (Rare #499)
|Maki: Oh, are you heading home, too?
Maki: I'm leaving late today because I went to the library.
Maki: Hmm? No, I wasn't studying today. I was reading books about handicrafts.
Maki: You see, last night I dreamt that I was sewing with Kotori. We were doing machine gathering to make a big, poofy skirt!
Maki: I've not done much handicrafts, but in my dream it was so easy. The skirt I made was beautiful.
Maki: Once it was done, I sewed on all these little spangles, then I embroidered it.
Maki: When I told Kotori about my dream, she looked thrilled.
Maki: Maybe I should try to learn to sew like in my dream. It might not be so easy, though.
Party Time! (Rare #574)
|Maki: See, I went to the trouble to come and get you.
Maki: Walking like this... makes me think of the past.
Maki: It used to be normal for me to walk by myself... Don't give me that "poor you" look.
Maki: There's Rin, and Honoka, and... There's always someone there. really, everyone is so friendly.
Maki: ....I can already hear everyone's voices. Heehee, everyone is here already.
Maki: Make sure you have a good time too. It won't be a µ's party if everyone isn't having a good time.
A Different Me (Rare #684)
|Maki: A different side of myself?
Maki: I don't think there is one. I'm always my usual calm, cool, and collected self, aren't I?
Maki: I know. You think I'm spoiled and standoffish, don't you?
Maki: I can be honest and upfront when I want to, you know.
Maki: Please, just leave me alone. You can be a little mean sometimes.
Shining so Bright (Rare #754)
|Maki: Hmm? Things I like that are shiny?
Maki: But I would say the girls in µ's shine more brilliantly than any jewel.
Maki: Especially when we're up onstage. I'm serious.
Maki: I know we're only school idols, not a pro idol group, but I feel like we're as dedicated and hardworking as any pro.
Maki: *Chuckle* Am I just bragging about my friends, now?
Your Job (Super Super Rare #942)
|Maki: Do I have any plans for after the show? Let me think... No, I don't have anything lined up for today. Although I'm sure someone will suggest we go out and celebrate.
Maki: Then we'll go over the show, discussing what went right and what went wrong.
Maki: It makes for a good learning experience.
Maki: Even though we should all be 100 percent focused on you own singing and dancing, we tend to notice if the person next us makes even the slightest mistake.
Maki: Since we rehearse almost every single day, we remember even the smallest inconsistencies.
Maki: Of course, no one can see the entire group at once, so we need critiques from someone in the audience.
Maki: You have the best view in the house for our shows. I;m sure you'd notice if anything were even the tiniest bit off.
Maki: Make sure you tell us what you saw after each show. You;re the only one who can do this job, so make sure you take it seriously.
Maki: Oh my, only ten minutes till show time! I need to go. See you later!
|Speaking of Summer... (Rare #34)|
Nozomi: A summer festival!
Nozomi: The Bon Dance... It was originally a time to honor and entertain your ancestors as they return...
Nozomi: So everyone dances and visits night stalls in a sort of daze... I think our ancestors see us like that, having so much fun, and they feel satisfied.
Nozomi: That's why we need to have fun and enjoy the festival to the fullest!
|If I Knew Magic (Rare #43)|
Nozomi: You know what? I think you and I together can make the happiest magic in the world.
Nozomi: Oh... But wait. There's you and I... The two of us can't both be "the happiest", because which one is "the happiest" and which is "second happiest"?
|A Place to Go (Rare #52)|
Nozomi: Of course, the most spiritual place in Japan. Mt. Fuji.
Nozomi: Because praying to the gods from the peak of Mt. Fuji would allow me to experience my power to the fullest.
Nozomi: Did you know that it's also very important to consider your traveling companion for something like this?
|What I Like (Rare #290)|
Nozomi: What are my likes? Looking at cute girls, I'd say!
Nozomi: Everyone in µ's is cute, right? Extremely so.
Nozomi: So I like to take in the cuteness during our shows, but that's hard when I'm on stage too.
Nozomi: Not this again! When you see cuteness, it's normal for it to overpower you. That's not obsessive at all.
Nozomi: But when I;m overpowered by cuteness, I do feel like I'd enjoy it more if I could give something back.
Nozomi: So, something I could do for everyone... How about a massage?
|Winter Means... (Rare #340)|
Nozomi: Whoo... Hehe, I can see my breath. Winter's coming.
Nozomi: You take a big pot, and fill it with green onions, napa cabbage, tofu, mushrooms, carrots, and lots of meat! Oh, and also konjac noodles and chrysanthemum greens.
Nozomi: A single pot has all kinds of nutrients, and you can change the flavors so you don't get bored. It's a shame if you don't like different styles.
Nozomi: And you know how the steam rises up when they're done? I love that.
Nozomi: It's a warm, reassuring sensation. Nabemono is amazing for how it makes you happy even when you're just waiting for it to finish.
Nozomi: It's good alone, but it's meant to be eaten in groups.
Nozomi: You all surround the pot, shoulder to shoulder. Hehehe. I smile just thinking about it.
Nozomi: You're coming too, right? We'll have hot food and a warm room waiting!
|A Wish for the Future (Rare #436)|
Nozomi: A wish for the future...
Nozomi: Is it okay if it's something I know won't come true, but I wish for anyway?
Nozomi: We'd be like one big family. Can you imagine how much fun that would be?
Nozomi: If we were a family, I guess Eli would be the dad? Which would make yours truly the mom, hehe.
Nozomi: A family with a whole litter of kids. And our cat would be Rin or maybe Nico-cchi? Just kidding. Don't tell Nico-cchi I said that. She'll be mad.
Nozomi: Maybe us living together as a big family is impossible, but you know what?
Nozomi: *Giggle* Right now our room at school is kind of like our own little home!
|Last Night's Dream (Rare #500)|
Nozomi: Good morning! Nice weather we're having, huh?
Nozomi: Why am I in such a good mood? Heh heh. Because I had a great dream last night.
Nozomi: Pop quiz, hot shot! What exactly did I dream about?
Nozomi: Five, four, three, two, one... zero! What's your final answer? I'll tell you the right one at the same time.
Nozomi: We just kept cracking them out until there was a huge mountain of delicious dumplings. Kotori and Nico-cchi were especially speedy!
Nozomi: Then Rin said she wanted dumplings with wings, so I added a little flour and water to the pan.
Nozomi: Even if it was just a dream. I've never made that many fried dumplings before. It was like a dumpling party!
|Party Time! (Rare #575)|
Nozomi: Oh, you're here! I just got here, too.
Nozomi: Honoka isn't late, is she? It's not a µ's party if everyone isn't here.
Nozomi: We were like strangers to begin with, so it's amazing we have become so close.
Nozomi: Our personalities and ways of thinking are all different, but we are bound together, with Honoka as our center.
Nozomi: Whenever I get a good feeling from being on stage or at a party, I can't help but be thankful for the miraculous bond we have.
|A Different Me (Rare #685)|
Nozomi: A different side of me? Nah, don't have any.
Nozomi: I just like to take it easy, you know? I do whatever.
Nozomi: Huh? Is being a school idol just "whatever" to me?
Nozomi: Come on, do you even have to ask?
Nozomi: I take being a school idol very seriously! Maybe not on the same level as Honoka, but I put lots of love and power into every performance!
Nozomi: Hey, maybe being a school idol is the different side of myself!
Nozomi: That could be... I sure hope it's not true, though.
Nozomi: The times I'm with µ's are the times where I feel like I can be myself the most.
|Shining So Bright (Rare #755)|
Nozomi: Things I like that are shiny?
Nozomi: Wow, I've got lots of those. The sun, the stars... Oh, and diamonds!
Nozomi: Quarter, too. And if we're talking food, mackerel sushi has a great shine to it!
Nozomi: When you look at people who have something dear to them that they want to protect, their eyes have a real sparkle to them. It's so cool!
Nozomi: I think the gods have given them the strength to fight tirelessly to protect the things dearest to them. I dunno what exactly it is they're fighting, though. Ha, ha!
|Speaking of Summer... (Rare #35)|
Hanayo: What's the best part of summer? Maybe ice cream.
Hanayo: Hmm... I like strawberry... And I like chocolate... Oh, and there's nothing like traditional vanilla!
Hanayo: I had some pineapple ice cream once that was delicious... Oh, and I can't forget the Japanese flavors like green tea and azuki bean!
|If I Knew Magic (Rare #44)|
Hanayo: If I could use magic? Well, I want to eat a bunch of delicious snacks...
Hanayo: That's it! That way, I can just eat as much as I want and never get fat... Yeah, that's what would make me happy!
|A Place to Go (Rare #53)|
Hanayo: If I could go anywhere? O-Osaka, maybe?
Hanayo: Well... There's a lot of really delicious food...
Hanayo: Maybe I could split it with you?
|What I Like (Rare #291)|
Hanayo: I do like to draw.
Hanayo: Lately, I've been drawing Alpaca during lunch.
Hanayo: Really, though, there is one thing I'd love to do.
Hanayo: Someday I'd like to draw everyone while they're singing and dancing, just once.
Hanayo: Everyone is so vibrant and cute on stage, so I'd like to preserve the moment in a picture.
Hanayo: Whenever it's finished, I hope I'm brave enough to show everyone, I'd be happy to show you them, too.
Hanayo: Oh, right! Can I draw you sometime, too?
|Small Miracles (Rare #305)|
Hanayo: I'm not sure if you'd call it a miracle, but I'm really happy right now.
Hanayo: I'm surrounded by miracles and it feels like one that I'm here right now.
Hanayo: If I had just spent my school life normally, I wouldn't be a school idol, for one thing.
Hanayo: So my miracle is the one everyone gave me.
Hanayo: It's like everyone in µ's each gave me a small miracle, one by one.
Hanayo: All I've done so far is take, though.
|Winter Means... (Rare #341)|
Hanayo: Pant... pant...
Hanayo: Oh, good morning. Are you going for a run, too?
Hanayo: Hehe, same here. It's cold, but that won't stop us.
Hanayo: Pant... pant...
Hanayo: When you run n the winter, your breath makes little white clouds. I feel like a train engine sometimes.
Hanayo: Hehe... that's not a weird thought, is it?
Hanayo: I was thinking that if you run a lot, you burn a lot of calories, so it's kind of like a diet.
Hanayo: The school idols in magazines always have thin, pretty legs, so this feels like I'm stuck between reality and my ideals.
Hanayo: Maybe I should stretch more? I'll ask Eli sometime. If you hear anything useful, let me know!
|A Wish for the Future (Rare #437)|
Hanayo: A wish I hope comes true someday? Hmm...
Hanayo: I'd like more and more people to discover the fun of school idols!
Hanayo: Of course that means more people coming to see µ's. But there are a lot of people out there who don't even know what school idols are!
Hanayo: I want lots of girls from all over to try being school idols. I want them to have the chance to put all their effort and energy into a performance.
Hanayo: Really, when you think about it, school idols are really special.
Hanayo: That's why I want lots more people to learn about them.
Hanayo: I don't want school idols to be a footnote in the history books. I want it to become an institution where it's common in every school!
Hanayo: But to make that future a reality we need to keep working hard today.
|Party Time! (Rare #576)|
Hanayo: Hello! The weather's lovely again today, isn't it?
Hanayo: I thought I'd go to the bookstore. Do you want to come?
Hanayo: You're coming too, right? OK, let's run!
Hanayo: *Pant* *Pant* Once we cross those lights, we'll be at school. Just a little bit further...!
Hanayo: Heheheh! Running with you made me start to kind of have fun. And then you took my hand...
|A Different Me (Rare #686)|
Hanayo: A different... version of myself?
Hanayo: I can be a bit timid at times... Occasionally I wish I was more assertive.
Hanayo: Like Umi. She's so cool, and when she talks, people listen. That's the kind of person I want to be like.
Hanayo: Oh, but listen to this. The other day Nico said to me that µ's works because everyone is different, and that I shouldn't try to force myself to change!
Hanayo: Nico loves µ's and being a school idol, so she definitely knows what she's talking about. I really admire Nico, too!
Hanayo: I admire Rin for being so cheerful... You know what? I think I admire everyone in µ's who isn't me.
|µ's Cherries! (Ultra Rare #720)|
Hanayo: Cherries are such sweet, cute little fruits. They're like the idols of the fruit world!
Hanayo: And now that I've been selected to be a fruit girl, I'm going to be just like them. It's a dream come true!
Hanayo: Wow, look at these! There's THREE on this stem. Maybe it's that three Printemps. Oh, and these three are BiBi, and these three are lily white!
Hanayo: Hmm... No luck. C'mon, there has to be a group of nine cherries somewhere.
Hanayo: If I do find one like that, I want to show it to the rest of the group. I wonder if they'll all think it looks like µ's.
Speaking of Summer (Rare #36)
|Nico: For me, it's gotta be fireworks! When we were shooting our music video, we set off a bunch of big fireworks!
Nico: You saw it, right?
Nico: I guess I don't really have any choice. I'll have to dance for you at least once.
|If I Knew Magic (Rare #45)|
Nico: Of course, the magic to make everyone in the world love me!
Nico: ...All right, how about just Japan then?
Nico: Huh? That's no good, either? OK... how about just Kanto? Just Tokyo? Just Akihabara? What? That's no good, either?
Nico: Argh! Fine! How about just you then? I'll cast a spell on you so that you can't look at anyone else, only me!
|What I Like (Rare #292)|
Nico: Eek, I said it!
Nico: What's with that expression? You don't need me to act like that?
Nico: I wasn't really acting, but whatever.
Nico: I like getting my hair styled, selecting costumes, and everything fashionable.
Nico: I always felt that I'd win any fashion competition, but now I don't feel like it means much to compete.
Nico: I mean, it's better to make all our members cute and fashionable than to be more fashionable than someone else, right?
Nico: I'm just so incredibly cute, it's like I've been given a sacred mission!
Nico: I'll give fashion advice to everyone tomorrow, too. You'd better come with me.
|Winter Means (Rare #342)|
Nico: Oh, what shall I do?
Nico: Just thinking of you makes my heart ache.
Nico: I never meant to care so much about you.
Nico: If only I could cast these feelings away, to drift on the wind like snowflakes.
Nico: So, this winter...
Nico: Drive off the winter chill with Nico!
Nico: You wanted to spend winter with me, too? Wait!
|A Wish for the Future (Rare #438)|
Nico: A wish for the future?
Nico: I guess for µ's to become world-famous?
Nico: I meant what I said. But at the same time, I'm totally satisfied with my life right now.
Nico: I've got a family and µ's that I both love and... Wait, maybe my wish has already come true?
Nico:Wouldn't that mean µ's is already the greatest school idol group in the world? And that I'm already world-famous?
|Last Night's Dream (Rare #502)|
Nico: I just don't get it. It makes no sense.
Nico: Oh, good morning. you seem to be without a care in the world this morning. Lucky you.
Nico: I had the oddest dream last night and it really freaked me out.
Nico: What happened? I was, I was harvesting rice!
Nico: I was wearing a big straw hat and navy blue rubber boots, with a white towel draped around my neck...
Nico: That's the kind of dream you'd expect Hanayo to have, not me.
Nico: On the other hand, the rice was beautiful shiny gold color, and swinging the sickle around to harvest it was kinda fun...
|Party Time! (Rare #577)|
Nico: Ah, you're finally here! Don't you think it's rather rude to keep me waiting?
Nico: There's a party today. Being late is totally unacceptable.
Nico: Why the long face? You think there won't be any more parties after this?
Nico: Don't worry! We are always going to be school idols. We will aaalways be holding fun parties.
Nico: Right, let's go! I'm normally the one being escorted, but I'll let you have me as your escort now and then.
|A Different Me (Rare #687)|
Nico: A different side of me?
Nico: Everyone already says I'm the brightest, cheeriest, and kindest girl in the whole world.
Nico: I'm a school idol, so I'm always focused on making sure the audience is happy.
Nico: But lately I'm having so much fun performing that sometimes I put all my energy into making sure I enjoy myself.
Nico: My stance on giving the audience a good show hasn't changed, but maybe a new side of me is slowly starting to emerge?
|Double the Beauty (Super Rare #700)|
Nico: Beautiful... They're indescribably beautiful!
Nico: Aren't parrots so pretty? Look at the gorgeous colors of their feathers, and the way their tail feathers spread open in an instant.
Nico: Parrots are beautiful animals, and that beauty is why everyone loves them. They're just like me!
Nico: That reminds me. Kotori was asking everyone for costume ideas for our next show.
Nico: Maybe I'll have her make me a parrot costume. Then I'd combine the beauty of the parrot's colors with my own stunning good looks. I'd look twice as nice!
Nico: That settles it. I'm going to hunt down Kotori. I want her to start on my costume as soon as possible!
|Shining So Bright (Super Rare #757)|
Nico: Something that shines really bright?
'Nico': My natural glow outshines even the brightest stars, and the most brilliant jewels.
Nico: Geez... If you don't try to shine on your own, where do you expect the light to come from?
Nico: You have to always be aware of what you're doing. That's the way to shine even brighter as a school idol. It's all up to you. Understand?
|Practice Makes Perfect (Super Rare #861)|
| Nico: Nico-Nico-Ni! The number one idol in the galaxy, Nico Yazawa, is here to steal your heart.
Nico: Training for the live show, of course! Would it kill you to not ask such obvious questions?
Nico: You can't develop a professional idol smile or nail you lines without practice. I make sure to train every day.
Nico: Could you react instantly if a random fan on the street called out to you?
Nico: Idols have to be ready to respond with a smile at a moment's notice. And you have to train hard to develop those skills!
Nico: Get it? Good! Now that you understand, you can train with me!
Nico: Don't just stand there. Do it with me! C'mon, time for another round!
|Yuu: I'm... Yuu Aizawa...|
|Sana: I'm Sana Yuki. I didn't really want to become a school idol or anything like that.
Sana: But there was no way around it. I joined because they wanted me so badly.
Sana: No-No way! I just haven't put any serious effort into it. This is just minimal effort?
|Christina: Hello, I'm Christina. I'm from Trento, Italy.
Christina: You can feel free to call me Chris.
Christina: I've never had the chance to wear clothing like this before... They're kind of embarrassing...
Christina: I don't know anything about being a school idol, but I think it's the duty of member of the clergy to bring solace to the people.
Christina: Looking forward to working with you.
Enjoying Every Day (#333)
|Christina: Hey, it's been a while. I'm Chris. How have you been?
Christina: I've been in Japan a while now, but as a school idol my performances are not up to par.
Christina: But everyone is so nice, and I'm enjoying every day.
Christina: I'm not even very embarrassed when I put on my school idol costume anymore.
Christina: It makes me happy that everyone enjoys us, and I'm grateful to have something that's really motivating.
Christina: So I'm not worried about anything anymore.
Christina: If you can, please come see us on stage!
I'm Keeping up with This for Longer than I Thought (#420)
|Marika: Oh, long time no see! How have you been?
Marika: Good, good. ♪ I've been doing great too, so we're the same!
Marika: The thought of contacting you did cross my mind, but then I thought that it'd be too much of a pain. Ah, but I don't mean that in a bad way!
Marika: I get bored of things easily, you know? Things really go get boring once you keep doing them for long enough.
Marika: But I'm still keeping up with being a school idol.
Marika: School idols are just so cute! It's amazing how the atmosphere can change with just a simple change of song or outfit!
Marika: So I don't think I'll be getting bored of this anytime soon! Ehehe, you're probably happy about that too, aren't you?
Marika: We're having a Halloween performance today. ♪ Come be bewitched by the devil Marika too, okay? ♪
I'm Too Busy! (#429)
|Sana: What's up? You're totally spacing out over here.
Sana: Me? I'm going to buy some candy.
Sana: N-No, not for myself! We need candy for tomorrow's show. Unlike you and your penchant for goofing off, I'm extremely busy.
Sana: It's almost Halloween. We need to have candy to pass out to the audience.
Sana: You're not getting any candy from me today. If you want some, you'll have to come to the show tomorrow.
Sana: Whoa, you actually came. I'll be honest. I didn't you'd show.
Sana: Man, you really do have a lot of free time. Well, here's your candy. Make sure you savor it!
Happy All Together (#508)
Minami: Hey, over here! I've been waiting for you.
Sublime Cyberspace (#585)
|Fumie: Woohoo, this is literally that most exciting thing ever!
Fumie: It's all, like, sci-fi and cybery. It's amaaaazing!
Fumie: So awesome... I wish I could go into cyberspace.
Fumie: I hope these outfits help us show the audience how awesome cyberspace is in our next performance.
Detective for a Day! (#601)
|Marika: Yo, yo. It's been a while!
Marika: And my gut tells me... you're the culprit!
Marika: Huh? What evidence do I have?
Marika: Hmm.. Ahh, forget it. I'm retiring from detective work!
Marika: Here, you can wear the hat and coat instead. I'm gonna head down to the club room and get back to rehearsing!
A Ninja? Or Maybe... (#678)
|Christina: Kasane? Does this look right to you?
Christina: Our costumes this time are supposed to be ninja-themed, but the ninjas I've seen in books are more... covered. Like their whole bodies, from head to toe.
Christina: A kunoichi is a female ninja? Oh, now I see! Kasane made me a kunioichi costume, then.
Christina: As a kunioichi, I will strive to bring a moment of happiness and relief to everyone in the crowd.
I Love My Yuri (#704)
|Coco: Yuri's so cool... Yuuri's so cute!
Coco: *Giggle* Today's the day that Yuri, Kasane and I get to wear the costumes we designed onstage!
Coco: They're animal parkas with cute little animal ears as accessories.
Coco: I'm sure Yuri will complain about how the ears were unnecessary.
Coco: But I think these costumes bring out both her cool and cute sides at the same time!
Coco: You're seeing a very pleased Coco Miyashita right now. Wish me luck. I'm off to the stage!
Many Sides of Me (#721)
|Shizuku: As I am now, I am not fit to say a single word to thee.
Shizuku: Ahh, how I long for thee... I stand alone, forlorn beneath a smattering of stars this eve.
Shizuku: They lived a totally different lifestyle back then. I want to bone up on my reference material while I've got the chance.
Shizuku: I may look like I'm off in La-La Land, but I'm totally thinking as hard as I can.
Shizuku: Also, I'm talking to everyone about using the costumes and sets from the play to make a school idol movie, too!
I'm Not Wearing This (#775)
|Sana: Whaaaaaaat?! No way! I am not wearing that. I can't be seen wearing a clown outfit!
Sana: Hmm? Clowns are like guides who lead people to their dreams?
Sana: If I'm going to be a clown, I need to build up my stamina and increase my agility before the show.
Sana: I'm practicing for the show. I need to get in shape to wear the clown outfit properly. Hey, join me and help me rehearse!
Will We Meet Again? (#785)
|Yuu: Brrr... It's chilly.
Yuu: If I wait here, maybe I'll run into her again.
Yuu: (But I might get so nervous that I lose my voice...)
Yuu: I've been waiting... because I wanted to rehearse with you.
How I Feel Right Now (#958)
|Shizuku: Hello there! I just wrapped up drama club rehearsal and now I'm about to go practice for our next live show.
Shizuku: I wanted to be a school idol because I thought it would help improve my acting.
Shizuku: There are a lot of similarities between drama club and school idol club, but there are differences, too.
Shizuku: In acting, your job is to become the role you're given and play the part. But as a school idol, it's your own feelings that are important, not character's.
Shizuku: After so many practice sessions, I've realized that I'm no longer playing the part of a school idol. I actually want to be one.
A Dormant Gift (#975)
|Marika: Oh! You couldn't have come at a better time. There's something I need to ask you.
Marika: Hmm? No, I'm not bashing it on anything in particular. Call it woman's intuition. Or animal instinct. A sense of foreboding. One of those!
Marika: If I do have a latent talent, I wanna figure out what it is a quickly as possible.
Marika: Maybe I'll try my hand at costume-making before the next show. I'll use my skills to come up with a really cute design, and then you can tell me what you think!
I'm Not Saying It! (#998)
