Ichigaya Residence - Basement
 


Rimi: Kasumi-chan... Were you feeling okay during rehearsal today?
Kasumi: ... Huh? Why? Did I make a mistake?
Tae: Not a mistake. Many mistakes, Kasumi.
Kasumi: R-really? Sorry... Actually, wait... Has anyone seen my sheet music?
Saaya: Isn't this one yours? I found it under this magazine...
Arisa: Hey, come on. Get it together, Kasumi~. Aren't you supposed to be the leader here?
Kasumi: S-sorry...
Saaya: Kasumi, is something wrong? During rehearsal, you were all fidgety...
Arisa: Yeah, you were spaced out. It's kinda weird. Normally, you're all like, "Yay~, rehrearsal!" and way too over the top.
Kasumi: ... Well...
Rimi: D-did something happen, Kasumi-chan?
Kasumi: Mhm. Before I came to rehearsal, I passed by the bookstore and learned about something totally awesome...
Saaya: And what would this totally awesome thing be?
Kasumi: So in the magazine that was on top of my sheet music-
Tae: This one?
Kasumi: That one! Take a look at the featured story!
Tae: Featured story, featured story... "The Best Spots for Watching Fireworks in the City."
Kasumi: That's it!
Rimi: Fireworks... I can't believe it's already that time of the year. I feel like the school entrance ceremony just ended... Time went by so fast.
Kasumi: I know, right?! And you know what?! According to that article, there's a fireworks festival in this very neighborhood! Did you know?!
Saaya: Did we know...? Uhm, it's a yearly event for the people in town.
Tae: Everyone makes a pretty big deal about the whole thing, right?
Arisa: And visitors come swarming in to see what all the buzz is about.
Kasumi: Are you serious?! How come no one told me about it-?!
Arisa: You're aware that there are posters hanging up all around town for this thing, right? Wouldn't it be weirder if someone didn't realize...?
Kasumi: No way~. Think about it! I had no idea it was happening!
Arisa: Yeah, no surprise there.
Kasumi: H-hey~! What's that supposed to mean~?!
Saaya: Now that you mention it, isn't the festival this weekend?
Kasumi: Yeah! That! That's what I wanted to talk about! We should all go if you guys are free!
Rimi: Oh, okay. So the reason you were fidgety was that you really wanted to go see the fireworks.
Kasumi: Saaya used the word fidgety too, but I don't know... I would say it was more like I couldn't sit still.
Arisa: So... basically the same thing they said.
Kasumi: Guys~, come one~. Let's go see the fireworks~.
Arisa: Give it a rest, it's supposed to be about the fireworks display, but the crowds are gonna be massive. It might as well be called a people display instead.
Kasumi: I don't wanna give it a rest!! I wanna go with you guys to see the fireworks~.
Arisa: What are you, five...? Actually, hold on a sec'. Aren't we supposed to be finishing up our homework this weekend?
Kasumi: ...?!
Arisa: And if I remember correctly, a certain someone said, "I don't know what I'm gonna do about all this homework! Let's do it together, guys!"... Didn't they, Kasumi?
Kasumi: Ah-ahaha... So... you remember that...
Kasumi: But wait, hold on... That was the me before I knew about the festival, and this is the me that knows about it... Two completely different people!!
Arisa: That makes no sense!
Saaya: I see. So you didn't know how to bring it up because you were the one who asked to do homework together, right?
Kasumi: ... M-mhm...
Kasumi: A-alright, what about this?! Change of plans! I will absolutely, positively finish all of my homework before the day of the fireworks! If I do, we can go, right?!
Arisa: ... Well, I guess that means we're not going...
Kasumi: I will! I promise!
The Other Four: ...
Kasumi: ... How come no one believes me~?
Tae: I guess because... this is classic Kasumi?
Arisa: O-O-Tae... How do you keep a straight face when saying things like that...?
Kasumi: I got it... From this day forward, Kasumi Toyama will be reborn!! All of my homework will be done by the day of the fireworks festival!!
Kasumi: So... You guys~, come on~. Saaya~, Rimi-rin~, O-Tae~, Arisa~. I want to go together~.
Saaya: Calm down, calm down. No need to get extra huggy. Sigh... I guess if you're gonna keep on going on about it... Right guys?
Rimi: Ahaha... Mhm. Right. Okay, why don't we go with her? Arisa-chan, O-Tae-chan, you'll come too, right?
Arisa: Sigh... Geez, if we have to... But, I mean, she did say she'll actually do her homework... O-Tae, come with us.
Tae: ... Ah. I'll be wearing a yukata to the event.
Arisa: You're already preparing?!
Kasumi: Yay~! Thanks, you guys! We're gonna have so much fun~!

Station Entrance
 


Kasumi: Here we are! Today is they day! The fireworks display we've all been working for~!!
Kasumi: Fi-re-works! Fi-re-works!
Saaya: Kasumi, settle down~.
Kasumi: What~? How could I settle down?! Do you know how long I've been waiting for this day?!
Saaya: Yes, actually, I do... K-Kasumi, cut it out. You can't take big steps like that while wearing a yukata!
Kasumi: Okay~!... Where's everybody at~? Think they're almost here~? Ah~, I can't wait!
Rimi: Ah, Kasumi-chan, Saaya-chan!
Kasumi: That sound like Rimi-rin~!... Huh?
Rimi: Sorry, it took a while to get changed. Have you been waiting long...?
Kasumi: R-Rimi-rin. You're wearing your...
Rimi: Remember what O-Tae said the other day? She said she would be wearing her yukata... So, I put mine on too. Is that why you're wearing yours, Kasumi?
Kasumi: ... M-mhm...
Rimi: So we were thinking the same thing, then... Uhm, Kasumi-chan? Is everything okay? You've been kinda... staring...
Kasumi: Yeah... It's just that seeing you in your yukata... I couldn't help but be amazed. You're so beautiful... Ehehe~.
Rimi: B-beautiful...?! N-no... I-I think if anyone is beautiful here, it'd be you, Kasumi-chan!
Kasumi: Huh...? Really?! Yay~! I'm beautiful! Saaya helped me put it on. Isn't it great?
Saaya: Kasumi, what did I just say? No jumping around in your yukata...!
Rimi: Saaya-chan, you know how to put on a yukata? Wow.
Saaya: I know a little bit. Nothing amazing, really.
Rimi: But it is. I think it is amazing. Also, seeing you in your yukata is exactly what I thought it would be like. It makes you look very mature.
Saaya: Y-you think so? Thanks. Ahaha... I think I know how you were feeling now. Hearing you compliment me with that smile on your face... Feels really funny.
Tae: Ah, everyone's wearing a yukata...
Kasumi: Wah~! O-Tae, you look so nice with yours on!
Saaya: Yeah... Especially with that silky hair of ours, you've got a look that totally says "Japanese beauty".
Kasumi: And all this because O-Tae said she was gonna wear hers~.
Rimi: I wonder what Arisa will be wearing. It'd be nice if we were all wearing yukata together...
Tae: Ah, there she is.
Arisa: Sorry I'm late... Y-you guys all... came in your yukata, huh...?
Kasumi: You say that like you're not wearing yours!
Arisa: ... I figured we'd all be on the same page...
Arisa: ... Though I guess that means Kasumi and I were thinking the same thing... Dear God...
Rimi: Arisa-chan, you're really pretty... You're so captivating, wearing that. I can't help but stare...
Arisa: What?! Y-you can't just say stuff like that!
Tae: Arisa, you're blushing.
Arisa: N-no I'm not!
Saaya: We know, we know. You're not blushing. You're just red, but... that's not blushing, right...?
Arisa: Sh-shut up!
Kasumi: Ahahaha! Alright, now that everyone's here, let's go! Fireworks, here we come~!


Fireworks Festival Area
 

Kasumi: Whoa, look at all these people! You think they're all here for the fireworks?
Arisa: That's what I was saying. The amount of people that come to this thing is insane...
Saaya: It is a pretty big deal. There are also food stands on the other side.
Rimi: Where do you think the fireworks will be?
Arisa: Uhm... I'm pretty sure it's this way...
Rimi: If that's true, we might not be able to see much...
Saaya: And it looks like people have been holding on to all the good spaces for a few days now...
Kasumi: No~!! Fireworks~!!
Arisa: ... Sigh, I guess I have no choice. I actually have a place I wanted to keep secret, but... if you want, we can go there.
Kasumi: ... Huh?! Arisa, you know a good spot?!
Arisa: There probably won't be that many people, so I think so.
Kasumi: Yes! Absolutely! Let's go!
Arisa: It's a bit of a walk from here. Is everyone okay with that?
Kasumi: Of course! Right, guys?
Rimi: That's fine, but... with a crowd like this, we have to make sure we don't get separated.
Kasumi: Mhm, you're right!
Saaya: How about we hold hands? It's what I do in a crowded place when I'm with my little brother and sister.
Saaya: Anyone who wants to hold hands, say aye!
Tae: Aye.
Arisa: O-O-Tae... You just "aye" with no shame...? You're not embarrassed? We're not babies, you know...
Tae: But... I don't wanna get lost.
Saaya: Fufu! That's a good girl. Alright, let's hold hands.
Tae: Great. I feel safe now.
Kasumi: Aye! Aye! Me too! Time to hold Saaya's hand and... off to Arisa's secret spot!

A Secret Spot?

The girls are headed for Arisa's recommended spot, but what happens when Kasumi notices a fair going on...?

Fireworks Festival Area
 


Kasumi: Hey, Arisa... Where's this secret place you have in mind?
Arisa: I guess you'll just have to wait and see.
Kasumi: Aww~, why won't you tell me~?
Arisa: It won't be any fun if I tell you now.
Saaya: Ahaha, I think I know what you mean... But you know, it looks like we're the only ones walking in the opposite direction of the crowd.
Arisa: That's why I'm sure no one will know about this place. They wouldn't have thought about how easily you could see the fireworks from there.
Tae: Arisa, you're always full of confidence, but you're even more full of it now... I trust you.
Arisa: I don't know if telling me I'm "full of it" is actually a compliment...
Saaya: Fufu, it just means she believes this place of yours will be great. More importantly, is everyone here? No one's lost?
Rimi: M-mhm... I'm okay, even with all of these people... It's easy to keep track of Kasumi-chan's yukata.
Tae: I'm okay too. Since I'm holding Saaya's hand.
Kasumi: I'm holding Saaya's hand too, so- Huh? Whoa~!! Look, look! They're having a fair over there!
Kasumi: There are so many booths! Wow~!
Kasumi: Hey hey Arisa!
Arisa: Don't tell me. You want to walk through it?
Kasumi: ... Wait, h-how did you know?
Arisa: Well, your train of thought is not really that hard to follow.
Kasumi: Ehehe, of course it isn't for you! You know me so well! Alright then, let's walk through the fair you gu-
Arisa: Stop. Have you seen how many people are there...? Moving through the crowd would be absolutely exhausting.
Kasumi: Aww~, c'mon~, We should all have takoyaki together while we watch the fireworks~.
Arisa: Nope.
Kasumi: Aww~, but I wanna go to the fair~. Look, even Rimi-rin's face has "yes" written all over it.
Rimi: M-me?! I- Well, uhh...
Saaya: To be fair to Kasumi, it does look pretty exciting. I definitely know how she feels.
Kasumi: ... Ahh~, I can't!! I just have to see it! I'll be right back...!
Arisa: H-hey! Kasumi! Hold on..!
Arisa: Sigh... She did it. She actually went.
Saaya: Yeah, I guess Kasumi would never really be able to just walk past a fair, huh?
Arisa: But still... That doesn't mean she should just disappear into the crowd... Going by herself is clearly not a great idea...
Rimi: Y-you're right. She shouldn't be by herself... I-I'm gonna go look for her! When I find her, I'll call you!
Arisa: Ah, Rimi! Come on, now Rimi's gone too...?
Tae: Should I go look for them next?
Arisa: No! No way! The only thing you'll do is get lost! I can see it now!
Saaya: Yeah, I think it'll be better if the rest of us stick together.
Saaya: Okay then... Why don't the three of us go to Arisa's spot first?
Saaya: Besides, if we do that, I think it'll be easier to meet up when Rimi-rin calls us.
Arisa: ... Probably. Alright, let's do that.
Saaya: Great. Time to secure the spot! Let's go, team!
Tae: Arisa... Aye...
Arisa: Hm? Aye...? Why are you holding your hand out...?
Tae: Wouldn't it be better if we were holding hands? It's even more crowded than before, too.
Arisa: D-don't be stupid! I don't wear diapers anymore! No way am I gonna hold your hand!
Tae: Yeah, you were saying that before too, but you don't have to wear diapers to hold hands.
Arisa: No no no no no! I-I absolutely will not!!
Arisa: C-come on! Let's get outta here already! The spot is this way...!

Fair
 

Saaya: Hey, O-Tae. Could I see your phone for a sec'?
Tae: My phone? Why?
Saaya: Do you have service?
Tae: Uhm... Ah, no signal.
Saaya: I thought so... I haven't had service for a while. Maybe because of the crowd...?
Tae: I'm not sure, but... If we can't use our phones...
Saaya: Exactly... I'm not sure how they're gonna be able to reach us...
Saaya: Hey, Arisa. What do you thin-
Saaya: ... Huh? Arisa...? ... She's... gone...
Saaya: N-now what...?! We lost Arisa!

Saaya and Tae take a shot at guessing where Arisa's secret spot is based on her personality.

Fair
 


Saaya: Hello~, Arisa~! Where are you~? Arisa~!
Tae: ... Doesn't look like she's around.
Saaya: Aw man... And my phone is still out of service... What about yours?
Tae: Nothing.
Saaya: I heard a few people talking about it earlier, and it's as I thought. The large crowd makes it hard for our phones to connect...
Tae: But not being able to call them... That's rough...
Saaya: It sure was a good thing we were holding hands... We might have gotten separated if not for that.
Tae: That's exactly what I was telling Arisa...
Saaya: What should we do? Think we should go back to where we split up with Kasumi and Rimi-rin?
Tae: ... We've been walking for a while, so I doubt they would be there.
Saaya: I guess you're right. Hmm~, what to do, what to do...?
Saaya: If we knew this was gonna happen, we would've been better off asking her where this secret place of hers is. I have a feeling we'd find her if we went there.
Saaya: ... Ah, speaking of! What about the magazine that Kasumi was reading? You think it'd be in there?
Tae: I don't think so. Arisa doesn't seem like the type to recommend that kind of place.
Saaya: ... Yeah. And she was calling it a "secret" spot.
Tae: What if we try to guess the spot based on Arisa's personality...? It'll be like we're detectives. Sounds like fun.
Saaya: Arisa's personality... Uhh, based on what we know about her... It would likely have to be a place with few people.
Tae: Mhm, I get that feeling too.
Tae: And since she said it was a secret place, it's have to be a place most people wouldn't think of going to.
Tae: Arisa has kind of a twisted mind, you know?
Saaya: I-I mean, she may be a bit hard to understand sometimes...
Saaya: But thinking about it that way, it probably wouldn't be a place that I would think of. I'd choose somewhere higher up since it's easy to see the fireworks...
Tae: Right. There'd normally be a lot of people in a place like that.
Tae: Also, when you think of Arisa, you'd probably thinking of the word introvert... or loner...
Saaya: (Probably could've stopped at introvert...)
Tae: And she likes dark places, like the dim and quiet basement in her house...
Tae: ...
Tae: ... Do you think, maybe, Arisa is... a ghost or something?
Saaya: Pft... Fufufu...! That's taking it a little too far~.
Saaya: But a place that's dark and quiet like her basement... Is there a place like that nearby here...?
Saaya: ... Ah! Now that you mention it, isn't there a shrine nearby?
Tae: Because she's an evil spirit?
Saaya: That's not what I mean! But there was one, right? A shrine in the forest, which means not many people would walk by it.
Tae: Mhm, there is. If we walk toward the high ground that everyone is going to and take a right into the forest, it'd be right there.
Saaya: That's right! That might be where Arisa's secret spot is!
Saaya: It's surrounded by trees, so it's dark and quiet just like the basement.
Tae: Mhm, and it sounds like a place where ghosts and spirits might live, so you could be right. All in a day's work for Great Detective Saaya.
Saaya: Ahaha, thanks. Alright, let's go check it out.
Tae: Got it. Also... Hand, please.
Tae: Can we hold hands? So we don't get separated.
Saaya: Yep! Let's do it!

Arisa's Secret Spot
 


Arisa: Sigh... They started the fireworks already.
Arisa: Where did... everybody go...?
Arisa: ... I'm all alone...
Arisa: Well, it's not like I care... I'm fine by myself!
Arisa: ... Geez, Kasumi's always doing whatever she feels like.
Arisa: Anyone could have guessed we would get separated in that crowd!
Arisa: And at some point... Saaya and O-Tae weren't following me anymore...
Arisa: After I finally decided I would tell them about this place...
Arisa: ... Look at that. This shrine is perfect. You can see the fireworks so clearly...
Arisa: ...
Arisa: ... I wish... the others could be here to see it with me...
Arisa: ... I wonder if we'd have all been together if I hadn't said anything about this spot...
Arisa: (Or maybe... if I hadn't been so secretive in the first place, they would all be here...)
Arisa: (I was just trying to make them happy... What's gotten into me...?)
Arisa: (All that aside... This place really is quiet...)
Arisa: Nothing but the sound of fireworks...
Arisa: I come here every single year, but... this year feels a lot quieter than usual...
Arisa: Sigh... I wonder what everyone else is up to...
Saaya: Huff... Huff... This hil... is a killer... O-Tae, are we at the shrine yet...?
Tae: We've made it to the top of the hill, so it won't be long now. Look, you can see the gate. We'll be there soon.
Saaya: You're right! ... Alright, here we are.
Saaya: Uhh, where's Arisa...?
Tae: ... I don't see her.
Saaya: Aw man... My guess was off, huh?
Tae: That's too bad, Great Detective Saaya. It's a sad day for the both of us...
Saaya: Hmm~, if not here, then where could she be...?
Tae: Hm? Looks like the fireworks display has started.
Tae: Ah...
Saaya: O-Tae? Wh-where are you going?
Tae: Saaya, look over there. The fireworks... they're amazing.
Saaya: Oh, wow! So pretty...
Tae: They look even bigger than usual... Am I just imagining it?
Saaya: Maybe because everything else is so dark, so the fireworks look a lot brighter and bigger than they normally do.
Tae: And they sound louder, I think.
Saaya: Mhm. There's nothing to block the sound. It's like I can feel it all the way in my stomach.
Tae: This is so weird... It's like the fireworks are here with us. Like they're making contact with me.
Saaya: Ahaha, I think I get what you mean... Huh?!
Tae: What's up?
Saaya: When that last one exploded, I think I saw someone's shadow...
Tae: Ah. That's...
Arisa: ... Hm? That voice just now...
Tae: Hey~, Arisa~.
Saaya: Arisa! There she is!
Arisa: O-O-Tae?! Saaya?! What are you guys doing here...? I don't understand...
Tae: The return of Great Detective Saaya. You hit it right on the nose!
Tae: ... Oh, but... This might be the ghost disguised as Arisa...
Arisa: Wh-what?! How dare you!
Arisa: Here I am, thinking about how incredible it is that we found each other, and you're accusing me of being a ghost?!
Arisa: I don't get it!
Saaya: Fufu... Fufufu! Great. With a sharp tongue like that, there's no question. That's Arisa! No ghost or evil spirit!
Arisa: H-huh?! What are you guys talking about...?

Arisa's Secret Spot
 


Arisa: It's amazing that you guys knew to come here. I never even mentioned anything about a shrine...
Tae: We know everything about you.
Arisa: Huh?
Saaya: You mentioned the same thing when Kasumi said she wanted to go to the fair, right? That her train of thought is not too hard to follow...?
Arisa: Uh, yeah. So...?
Saaya: Same deal. Considering your personality and the things you like, we just figured this might be where you were.
Arisa: And everything worked out just based on that? I don't believe it...
Saaya: Well, we're here, aren't we?
Tae: Arisa, you're easy to read. Just like Kasumi.
Arisa: Like hell I am! I'll never be as simpleminded as her!
Tae: You're the exact opposite of her.
Tae: You have a twisted way of thinking, so you wouldn't be somewhere anyone would think of. And you're pretty much a loner, so it seemed like you would like a darker space.
Saaya: Wh-what?! O-Tae! You can't say that. She'll take it the wrong w-
Arisa: What... did... you... say?! You think you can say whatever you want behind my back?!
Saaya: S-sorry! We didn't mean it like that!
Tae: But we were right, and that's why we were able to find you.
Arisa: Y-yeah, but still...! ...!!
Arisa: ... Ugh! It's like you're trying to be annoying!
Saaya: W-we're sorry, Arisa. We'll make it up to you. Please don't be mad. You're getting all red... Okay?
Tae: That's not why she'd red, Saaya. I think she's probably embarrassed because we knew exactly what she was thinking.
Arisa: A-a-a-absolutely not! What are you saying...?! What would I have to be embarrassed about?!
Arisa: ... A-anyway! How long are you guys just gonna stand there?! Come, sit over here! We're gonna watch the fireworks!
Saaya: The fireworks... they're so pretty...
Arisa: Right? This isn't my secret spot for nothing.
Saaya: Arisa, you found such a great place. What made you think of coming here to watch fireworks the first time you did it?
Arisa: Hm~, I'm pretty sure... I was just looking for a place that might have a good view and happened to come upon this shrine... I think.
Saaya: Oh, I see. I guess we should be grateful to the past Arisa! Thanks to her, we can see the fireworks so well.
Tae: I wonder what Kasumi and Rimi are up to.
Saaya: There's still no service, right? Sigh, it would have been nice to be able to see this with everyone.
Tae: Mhm. I think if she could see them from here, she wouldn't be able to contain herself.
Arisa: Hmph... I might have been a bit too noisy there. I'm glad no one else noticed this place... Whew, that would've sucked.
Arisa: (... I wonder what Kasumi would say if she could see the fireworks here...)
Arisa: (It is Kasumi, so it'd be something like-)
???: Wh-whoa~!! They're so sparkly~!!
Arisa: Mhm, mhm... Just like that...
Arisa: ... Wait, what?
Kasumi: Look, Rimi-rin! From here you can see how sparkly the fireworks are!
Rimi: Y-you're right. It feels like we're so close to them...
Arisa: K-Kasumi...?!
Kasumi: ... A-Arisa?
Saaya: Rimi-rin too!
Tae: ... How?
Kasumi: Ahh~!! Arisa, Saaya, O-Tae?! Hey, Rimi-rin! Everyone's here!
Rimi: Th-there they are...
Kasumi: A-awesome~! Guys, I missed you all so much~!
Arisa: Wait, I don't understand... What are you guys doing here...?
Kasumi: So~, ehehe~♪ I happened to run into Rimi-rin at the fair!
Rimi: M-mhm... It was just so crowded... It really was a coincidence that we found each other...
Kasumi: And then, the fireworks started, and that's when we went crazy!
Saaya: Okay, what about coming here? You guys didn't know this was the secret spot, did you?
Kasumi: What?! This is Arisa's secret spot?! Wow~!
Kasumi: We were just looking for a place with a nice view and happened to find this place! Right, Rimi-rin?
Rimi: M-mhm... Well, I just followed Kasumi-chan, actually...
Tae: Kasumi, that's exactly what Arisa just said.
Saaya: Huh... They may have opposite personalities, but their instincts are similar. Maybe that's why they get along so well.
Arisa: E-excuse me?! Similar instincts to Kasumi?! There's no way in hell! Most definitely not!!

Arisa's Secret Spot
 


Kasumi: It was a bumpy road, but we're finally all together! It's all thanks to the bond of Poppin'Party!
Arisa: Actually, more like a miracle! Seriously! There's no way this should have happened!
Kasumi: But I'm glad it did~! Since I wanted to see the fireworks together!
Saaya: In any case, since we're all here, why don't we relax and enjoy the show?
Rimi: Yeah.
Tae: Come, quick. Let's sit.
Arisa: O-Tae! You're already prepared?! And you took the best seat?!
Kasumi: Aww~, no fair! I want the best seat too~!
Kasumi: Wah... Wow~. Now that we're all watching together, they're even prettier!
Rimi: ... Kya!
Kasumi: Hm? Rimi-rin, are you okay?
Rimi: Uh-uhm... Actually... I don't do really well... with the... explosions...
Rimi: ... Kya!
Kasumi: Is it the "boom" part? I like it because it reminds me of your bass...
Rimi: I-it's just... I can feel my stomach shaking... Or should I say... my whole body... kinda vibrates...
Saaya: Ah, so that's why the last time we came to this shrine you looked so nervous.
Rimi: M-mhm...
Rimi: ... Kya!
Kasumi: You're always okay during our performances, though. How weird.
Tae: ... Rimi. Aye... Hand.
Rimi: Huh? Wh-what about it?
Tae: My hand... You should hold it. It'll help you relax.
Rimi: O-O-Tae-chan...
Tae: When we all got separated, I felt at ease because I was still holding onto Saaya's hand.
Tae: So let's hold hands.
Rimi: ... O-Okay!
Tae: ... Well? Do you feel better?
Rimi: ... Mhm. M-maybe... a little bit...
Rimi: ... Kya!
Saaya: Uh oh, not quite there yet. Alright, why don't you hold my hand too ♪
Rimi: ... M-mhm!
Kasumi: Whoa! Arisa, did you see that?! That las tone looked like a butterfly!
Arisa: Yeah, there are a lot of those. Not just butterflies. There are hearts, stars, you name it.
Kasumi: R-really?! I wanna see the star-shaped one!
Kasumi: When you think of Poppin'Party, you gotta think of stars!
Saaya: Hey... Look at that one!
Kasumi: ... Ah. The star-shaped... fireworks...
Kasumi: ... There are five of them!
Kasumi: Amazing! That's amazing Arisa! They have five star-shaped ones! Five! Just like us!
Arisa: Gah!! Kasumi, get off of me~!!
Kasumi: No!! Hugs!! Everyone gets a hug!! O-Tae's next! Really, really, really tight!!
Tae: H-help me...
Saaya: Fufufu. This is great, Kasumi. We were all able to see the fireworks together.
Kasumi: Mhm! I'll absolutely, positively never forget this day! Let's come again next year!
Saaya: Kasumi, you're getting a little ahead of yourself...
Tae: Alright, and we'll wear yukata next year as well.
Arisa: O-Tae's already planning too!
Rimi: I hope I'll be used to the explosions by then...
Rimi: ... Kya!
Arisa: You guys... Can you all watch more quietly? You're gonna ruin my secret spot. What are you gonna do if someone else realizes we're here?
