A Stroll Colored by Sakura Event Story - Opening
No Restraint

Pastel✽Palettes is filming a food report at a cake shop. Suddenly, something unexpected happens...?


Station Entrance

Aya: Now then, continuing our collection of must-eat spring sweets, we will now present the long-awaited number one spot!
Eve: The crepes at number two and the daifuku at number three were both really delicious!
Chisato: Fufu, right. It's a shame that you can only enjoy them for a limited time.
Maya: Oh? Can you smell something sweet...? Could this be...?
Hina: Ah~, it might be that red brick shop over there! That has a real cake shop feel to it!
Aya: H-Hina-chan...! That's not it. The shop we're going to is the one next to it...
Hina: Ah, I see. It's that plain-looking shop over there. Sorry, I got confused.
Aya: U-um, getting back on track! Chosen for the number one spot is the Spring in Full Bloom Roll Cake from Patisserie Tomo!
Chisato: From what we've been told, Patisserie Tomo's manager spent ten years training in France before opening this shop.
Eve: Training for ten years... That is wonderful! I can feel their sense of bushido!
Hina: Since it's France, wouldn't they be more about knighthood?
Maya: U-um... Now then! We will be trying the Spring in Full Bloom Roll Cake in their café space!
Aya: hm! I've been waiting for this! Now then, please excuse us!

Patisserie Tomo - Café Space

Eve: There were a lot of delicious-looking cakes in the showcase! I was so captivated by them...
Aya: Yeah, really~. The chocolate cake looked especially good!
Chisato: And the one to beat out those delicious cakes for the grand seat of number one is this Spring in Full Bloom Roll Cake.
Aya: Wow~, this is amazing~! Look, look! The cream filling is shaped like a sakura blossom.
Maya: Just looking at it makes it feel like spring!
Hina: Hm? But isn't the sakura blossom a little crooked?
Chisato: D-do you think so...?
Hina: Yeah, it is. This area right here looks kinda bent. Hey, Aya-chan, it's crooked, right?
Aya: I-I can't really tell, but... even with it like that... don't you think it's not bad?
Hina: I see! It's so interesting that the cakes are so stylish but the inner design is wobbly! Now that you mention it, it's starting to feel boppin'♪
Chisato: Um... The sponge cake section is also very pretty. The pink coloring makes me think of spring scenery and-
Hina: This probably has red food coloring in it, huh? It's amazing that red food coloring makes this kind of color.
Maya: H-Hina-san...
Chisato: N-now then, sorry to have kept you all waiting! It is now time for us to try it.
Eve: I cannot wait any longer either! Let us enjoy them together!
Aya: Right! Now then, everyone say it with me...
All: Thank you for the cake!
All: Chomp...
Maya: ... Hm?
Aya: H-huh...?
Chisato: (What is this...? The inner cream is gooey and has no flavor... And yet the cake is so dry...)
Hina: Whoa~, this is terrible~.
The Other Four: ...?!
Chisato: H-hey, Hina-chan...!
Hina: I don't really like this flavor. Weren't the number two crepes better than this? I think I'll have to pass on this one.
Aya: H-Hina-chan! I-if you can't eat yours, do you want me to have it?! I really like its flavor!
Hina: Oh, you shouldn't push yourself. This really isn't very good.
Eve: Hina-san, it is very rude to say such things! No matter how bad it might be, the person who made it is standing right here!
Maya: E-Eve-san, you're also being rude... Let's all calm down.
Chisato: ...
Aya: Y-yay! I get to have Hina-chan's share too!
Aya: M-mmm. It's so good♪ The cream has a modest sweetness...
Aya: I... I could eat a whole bunch of... Urk...! Cough, cough!
Hina: Awww, and I even warned you~.
Eve: A-Aya-san! Are you all right?!
Aya: Ngh... Ah, that was so good~...
Chisato: I'm sorry... Could we stop the camera for a moment...?

An Idol's Job

Chisato warns Hina about her rude remarks when filming on location. However, Hina doesn't seem to see the problem...


The Next Day
Talent Agency

Chisato: Hina-chan...! What was the meaning of yesterday's on-location filming?!
Hina: ... Huh? What do you mean?
Chisato: Don't give me that... I am asking for an explanation for what you did...!
Hina: Huh? Did I do something?
Maya: If I had to say one way or the other, I think you did quite a bit...
Aya: Yesterday was really tough~...
Chisato: I have a lot that I would like to say to you, but the biggest problem was you calling the shop's product not very good.
Chisato: While it is fortunate that we were just recording, had that been a live broadcast, it would have been a serious problem.
Hina: Huh? Really...? It's lucky it was a recording then, huh?
Chisato: Do not try to pass this off as if it doesn't concern you... I am cautioning you about your own actions.
Hina: Well, I mean, it really was terrible~.
Eve: One of the shop trainees said they had made that cake as practice.
Eve: While it looked very delicious, I was astonished by its taste...
Hina: It was brought out by mistake, so we can't help that things turned out that way.
Chisato: I do agree that was their mistake. Following that, we were able to retake the footage with the real cake, so we avoided any serious incidents...
Chisato: However. Hina-chan, your attitude yesterday was unacceptable for our line of work...!
Hina: ...?
Chisato: The work tasked to us was introducing shops and products. We absolutely cannot say anything that would ruin their reputations.
Chisato: Even if the cake we are served does not taste good, it is our role to smile and say that it does.
Chisato: Program productions are backed by sponsors. You need to properly understand that, as well as the role that is being asked of us.
Aya: Chisato-chan's right. What you did yesterday was wrong, Hina-chan.
Eve: Saying it is not good is definitely not allowed! It is rude to the person who made it!
Chisato: Aya-chan, Eve-chan, this applies to both of you as well...
Eve & Aya: ...?!
Chisato: Eve-chan, you should have chosen your words more carefully. While trying to stop Hina-chan was the right thing to do, the way you phrased it did not help.
Chisato: If anything, it further confirmed that the cake really wasn't good.
Eve: Ngh... I am sorry.
Chisato: And Aya-chan... I do value your effort to do your best until the end.
Chisato: However, no one would believe you thought it was delicious with those tears in your eyes, would they?
Aya: Ngh... I'm really sorry...
Maya: N-now now, Chisato-san... Things may not have gone well, but the two of them tried their best...
Hina: That's right. It's already over and done with, so let's let them off the hook.
Chisato: ...?! You are the one I am most cross with, Hina-chan...!
Chisato: To begin with, I have been cautioning you for some time now. You are far too blunt!
Hina: Huh? You think so?
Chisato: During concerts and talk shows, you often ignore the flow of the event to bring up topics you wish to talk about.
Aya: During that one magazine interview, she asked the interviewer why they asked a question, didn't she...?
Eve: It confused the interviewer...
Maya: There was also one time where one of Hina-san's blog posts nearly became a problem, wasn't there...?
Aya: That was the one where she said she went to see a movie, but it wasn't interesting, right...? Luckily, we were able to stop her before she uploaded it...
Hina: I thought that post came out really interesting though.
Chisato: It obviously did not...! Pastel✽Palettes would no longer receive offers for movies...!
Chisato: In the entertainment industry, even a single mistake is fatal. You should be well aware of that, Hina-chan.
Hina: But doing things according to the script isn't very interesting, and if we're going to do something, it might as well be fun, right?
Chisato: Sigh...
Chisato: Tell me something, Hina-chan... I have been meaning to ask you this for some time now, but what is your opinion of idol work?
Hina: Idol work...? Hm, I guess it's kinda interesting.
Hina: I can do a lot of things that I normally can't, and there's a lot of boppin' stuff as well, so I really like it♪
Chisato: ... I see. So that's what it means to you.
Chisato: Still, I would like you to think a bit more about what kind of idols you want Pastel✽Palettes to be, as well as about what kind of idol you want to be...
Chisato: Accidents like this will not be tolerated during the next large upcoming assignment.
Chisato: You need to be more conscious... Particularly of what will benefit Pastel✽Palettes.
Hina: What'll benefit Pastel✽Palettes...?
Hina: Hm... Okay. I like our band too, so if that will help us, I'll think about it.
Chisato: I'm happy to hear it.
Chisato: You all have a lesson after this, correct? I cannot participate because of work, but please do your best.
Aya: Okay. Good luck with your work, Chisato-chan!
Maya: We'll make sure to rehearse enough for your share, Chisato-san!
Eve: Be careful on your way there!
Hina: ...
Hina: (What kind of idol I want to be, huh...?)

Pastel✽Palettes' Future

After being asked what kind of idols she wants to be, Hina begins to think...


Rehearsal Studio

Hina: ...
Eve: Hina-san seems to have been thinking about something for some time now.
Maya: I wonder if she's worried about what Chisato-san told her...
Aya: Hina-chan...
Hina: ...
Aya: Cheer up, Hina-chan. Everyone makes mistakes, so you don't have to feel so down.
Hina: Huh? Mistakes?
Aya: I'm not proud of it, but I make mistakes a lot, so I know how you feel. If there's anything you want to talk about, you can always come to me for advice...
Hina: Huh? Advice? From you? ... Why?
Aya: Huh? Um... I thought you might be worried about what Chisato-chan told you...
Hina: I'm not. I was just thinking about it.
Hina: What do I want Pastel✽Palettes to be? What kind of idol do I want to be?
Hina: After being asked that, I realized I hadn't really thought about it until now.
Eve: So that is why you have been absent-minded this whole time.
Hina: Well, I guess so~. Still, Chisato-chan was pretty angry today, huh?
Hina: It's rare for her to show that much emotion.
Maya: Isn't that probably because Pastel✽Palettes' circumstances are changing?
Hina: Huh? What do you mean?
Maya: Well, Aya-san and Chisato-san have made appearances in a television drama, and Eve-san's radio show has started as well.
Maya: And the other day, All Fun and Games had its broadcast period extended.
Aya: Also, Maya-chan's column is going to come out as a book soon!
Maya: Huhehe... Th-thank you.
Maya: How do I put this...? I think that's why Chisato-san is so worried.
Maya: We're getting more types of assignments now, so we have to think about how we're seen by people that don't know us.
Eve: I see! I understand completely!
Maya: Not to mention, all the staff members we interact with at work won't always be people that know us.
Aya: She has a point. If we leave a bad impression in the beginning, we might not get work after that...
Hina: Hm, so that's what it is...
Hina: Does that mean Chisato-chan was right about playing the role being asked of us?
Hina: That doesn't feel boppin' at all though. And if that's the case, the ones they hire don't necessarily need to be us, right?
Aya: Th-that's true, but...
Hina: Boring things are boring, and terrible-tasting food tastes terrible.
Hina: Wouldn't it be lying to say something tastes good when it doesn't? Are we supposed to lie if we're asked to?
Hina: Hm, that doesn't feel very boppin'.
Eve: That certainly is not in line with bushido!
Maya: No, I think Chisato-san was trying to ask you what you want to value.
Maya: How do you want Pastel✽Palettes to be in the future...? And what kind of idols do you want to be...?
Maya: In other words... You should act with that in mind.
Hina: I see. I feel like I kinda understand, but kinda don't...
Hina: Hm... Ah, by the way, what about all of you? Do you guys already have something in mind?
Aya: Of course! I...
Hina: Want to be an idol that gives people dreams! Right?
Aya: Huh? Wh-why did you say it before I could~?
Hina: Ahaha! I mean, you're always talking about it, Aya-chan. I'm pretty sure I've got it memorized.
Maya: I suppose... I want to be an idol that is true to herself and can give courage to others.
Maya: I may still be inexperienced, but I do think I am consciously trying to be that kind of idol.
Hina: Oh, so that's how it is for you. Okay, what about you, Eve-chan?
Eve: My goal is of course for Pastel✽Palettes to be idols that can conquer the world!
Eve: I believe that if I have a true and unwavering spirit of bushido, that dream will come true!
Hina: I don't really get it, but... yours seems the most interesting, Eve-chan!
Maya: A-ahaha...
Aya: In any case, it would be great if we got everyone in Japan to know about us.
Maya: What kind of idol do you want to be, Hina-san?
Hina: Like I said, I'm still thinking about it. I can't really come up with an answer, so I don't know.
Hina: But, well, in the end, being able to enjoy things I don't understand is what makes me who I am!
Maya: Right. I hope that you find a boppin' answer that suits you, Hina-san♪
Hina: Ahaha! Thanks!

A Stroll Colored by Sakura Event Story - Chapter 3
Trouble on Location...?

Aya and the others are ready to give their all in a flower-viewing film shoot for a famous program, but something's off...


Talent Agency

Hina: Morning~! ... Huh? Am I the last one?
Aya: Hina-chan, you barely made it~. I got here an hour ago.
Maya: Ahaha... I think you may have arrived too early, Aya-san...
Eve: I know how she feels though! After all, today is our assignment for "RoyalxHoliday!"
Maya: We're appearing on a show that I've watched on our days off... Oh~, I'm so nervous...!
Chisato: This television show is watched by a broad audience. Those nerves are completely natural.
Aya: We're doing an on-site shoot of a sakura blossom spot with an actress, right?!
Chisato: Correct. It will be Haruka-san. I have co-starred with her once before. She is a candid actress with expert-level acting skills.
Hina: Being able to go flower-viewing while we're working seems like a bonus~!
Chisato: Hina-chan. I might seem harsh, but this will be for work. Please think of that first, and—
Hina: I know~. I won't do anything like last time, so relax~.
Chisato: I see. I am relieved to hear that. Well then, shall we get going?

On-Location Filming
Nature Park

Aya: Whoa, I had no idea there was a spot for sakura blossoms so close by! Our talent agency is not far from here~!
Haruka: I see. You're all so lucky to have a place like this so close to your agency~.
Chisato: (So far, the on-location filming has been going well. Hina-chan has been reading the situation and is behaving.)
Staff: Now then, Aya-san and Haruka-san, please give us a few words on your thoughts of this spot! First, let's start with Aya-san.
Aya: H-huh, me...?! Um... uhhh... The sakura blossoms are really pretty, and... seeing them made me realize spring is here~!
Haruka: As I am normally busy with work, being able to leisurely enjoy scenery like this is truly relaxing. I almost feel as if I am breathing in spring itself...
Staff: Oh~, now that is a magnificent comment~!
Aya: Wow, what an amazing comment... It would've been nice if I had been able to say something like that...
Haruka: That's not true. Your comment was very lovely, Aya-chan.
Aya: Thank you very much!
Staff: Now then. Next, please try ad-libbing a drama scene with the sakura blossoms in the background.
Chisato: Ahh, in that case I will—
Staff: Oh, no! We'd like to ask for Aya-san and Haruka-san to handle it!
Chisato: I-is that so...?
Aya: Huh? I'm not very confident though~...!
Eve: ...? Why are they having Aya-san do it instead of Chisato-san...?
Maya: Hm... The staff member may have something in mind...
Chisato: ...
Haruka: So... Aya-chan. I want you to wait for me here. Then I will know this is a place I can come home to.
Aya: O-okay...! I'll wait for you to come buck... Ah.
Staff: Okay, cut! Wow, what great footage!
Aya: Huh...? I just fumbled my words, so shouldn't we do a retake...?
Staff: I think this is good, as it has its own charm!
Aya: O-okay...
Staff: By the way, do you know what biological family sakura blossoms are in?
Aya: U-umm... sakura blossoms... are in the...
Aya: ... Sakura blossom family?
Haruka: Sakura blossoms are part of the rose family, right?
Staff: Well done! Just as expected from Haruka-san!
Haruka: You just told me that a moment ago... didn't you?
Staff: Ah, let's not worry about that!
Maya: U-um, Chisato-san... There's something I'm a little concerned about...
Chisato: Yes, I'm thinking the same thing.
Chisato: The main focus of this on-location filming is Haruka-san. It would seem we were invited to act as her foil.
Maya: I thought as much...
Eve: Also, does it not seem like they have only been filming when Aya-san makes a mistake...?
Chisato: Yes. I believe their plan is to record comical footage of Aya-chan to accentuate Haruka-san.
Chisato: You could say they chose that filming style precisely because they know how Aya-chan is...
Eve: I feel sorry for Aya-san...
All Except Aya: ...
Hina: ... This doesn't feel very boppin'~.
Chisato: Hina-chan...

A Stroll Colored by Sakura Event Story - Chapter 4
More Like Me

The girls are upset by the role they're meant to play for the program. How will Hina respond...?


On Break
Nature Park

Chisato: Hina-chan... Please refrain from saying what you just said. You assured me you would behave today, did you not?
Hina: Awww, but this isn't any fun at all. It's just a loop of Aya-chan failing and the actress succeeding.
Eve: I-I also agree with Hina-san! This is not right!
Chisato: Eve-chan, even you are siding with her...?
Eve: I understand that we are not the stars for today's on-location filming, but it is somewhat frustrating to have our reputation be spread this way...
Maya: E-Eve-san... Let's calm down a little.
Aya: Y-yeah! It's okay. I'm totally fine!
Hina: Hm, It feels pretty obvious that you're pushing yourself though. Chisato-chan, do you think this is okay?
Chisato: ... Depending on how you interpret it, I believe this situation could be beneficial.
Chisato: Aya-chan will leave an impression by drawing attention at pivotal points. That should provide opportunities for people to remember us.
Chisato: Furthermore, this is work. As professionals, I believe we should devote ourselves only to the role we have been given.
Hina: That's what we should do, huh? What about you, Maya-chan? Are you okay with this on-site shoot?
Maya: ... No, I'm not. But—
Hina: Then let's do things our way!
Hina: I don't really have an idea of what kind of idol I want to be yet, but...
Hina: At the very least, I know this isn't the kind of idol I want to be.
Hina: I mean, none of you seem to be having fun at all, and I'm not having any fun either!
Hina: We do boppin' work, and everyone that sees that will feel boppin'♪ Wouldn't it be boring if we weren't idols like that?
Aya: Hina-chan...
Hina: So let's work together to make this un-boppin' on-site shoot more boppin'♪
Maya: Do you mean, instead of fitting ourselves into a mold created by our surroundings, we make our surroundings fit into a mold we make...?
Hina: Yeah! That's it!
Hina: I mean, doing it that way would be more boppin'♪
Chisato: ...
Hina: At times like this, I think it would be more boppin' to think of what we want to do rather than what we should do♪
Chisato: What we want to do... rather than what we should do...?
Hina: If we want to make the people watching feel boppin', then we need to feel boppin' first♪
Chisato: (So that is Hina-chan's answer... That is what idols are to her...)
Eve: I-I want everyone to see us in a more enjoyable state!
Maya: Me too... At this rate, I don't think we will be able to properly convey our charm as a band!
Aya: Same here... I'm happy that I can be filmed, but I want people to know more about the Pastel✽Palettes! I mean, I know we can do more than this!
Chisato: ... You all seem to have been influenced by Hina-chan. Don't you think you are being too self-indulgent?
Aya: Ch-Chisato-chan...
Chisato: There will be many assignments like this in the future where we will have to play the foil for someone else...
Chisato: Some will be joint appearances with performers with long careers, and others will involve plans from large agencies...
Chisato: Some day, we will need to abide by their authority...
Maya: Th-that's...
Chisato: ... However.
Chisato: That is not today.
All Except Chisato: ...!
Chisato: Even if we continue following the staff member's instructions, we can only leave an impression that has already been established for us.
Chisato: What's more, it will be in a format that we do not want.
Chisato: Looking at the long term, this inconsistency in our image will one day have a bad influence on our activities.
Chisato: Before that happens, it would be best to leave behind something in a manner we choose. Thinking of our future, that is what should be done...
Chisato: ... No. That is what I personally want to do.
Hina: Nice! Chisato-chan, you're starting to feel boppin' too♪
Chisato: Not to mention, there have been multiple times during the filming where the flow of things has been forcibly changed on us.
Chisato: Fufu. I am not someone that likes being controlled by others in the first place.
Maya: Chisato-san... Your smile is somewhat frightening...
Aya: Eep...
Hina: Nice, nice~! That's the Chisato-chan that I wanted to see!
Chisato: Well, that is a relief... Oh my, it seems our break is nearly over.
Hina: Okay then, everyone. Let's make this a more boppin' job during the second half♪
Aya, Maya & Eve: Okay!

A Stroll Colored by Sakura Event Story - Chapter 5
Show Them What We Got!

Pastel✽Palettes decides to do things their way. What will happen once filming resumes...?


After Resuming On-Location Filming
Nature Park

Chisato: The sakura blossoms blooming in this area appear to be a different variety than the previous ones.
Aya: Ah, these are called weeping sakura blossoms! Yoshino sakura blossoms are pretty, but this variety has a nice sense of elegance!
Staff: Oh, now then, I'd like to stop here and give a quiz to Aya-san and Haruka-san about songs related to sakura blossoms—
Hina: Ah, by the way, is anyone else hungry? We've been walking the whole time, so I'd like to have something to eat~!
Chisato: In that case, I believe there is a shop nearby that sells delicious seasonal crepes.
Haruka: Ah, I love crepes. I might like to try one.
Chisato: I am certain that you will also take a liking to them, Haruka-san. They also look very nice as well. Isn't that right, Aya-chan?
Aya: Yeah!
Chisato: Didn't you upload pictures of them online?
Aya: Ah, that's right! They're these ones right here...
Haruka: Wow, they look so good! Aya-chan, you're really good at taking photos.
Eve: Yes, Aya-san is very skilled at taking food pictures and selfies!
Haruka: Fufu. After seeing those, I've gotten hungry as well. Would it be okay for us to drop by there for a little bit?
Staff: Ah, in that case, after the quiz, we can—
Hina: Weren't those crepes only available in a limited quantity?
Chisato: Yes, if we do not hurry there, they may be sold out. It is a shame, but the crepes will have to wait until another ti—
Staff: I-in that case, why don't we head there first?! The quiz can wait until after!
Maya: (That was masterful guidance, Chisato-san! In the process of introducing Aya-san's hobby, we drew Haruka-san's interest...)
Maya: (And with a few words from Hina-san, we managed to avoid the staff member's attempts to proceed with the quiz...)
Maya: (Chisato-san and the others said they would take control once the on-location filming started again, but... this is even better than I imagined!)
Hina: Maya-chan! If we don't hurry, they'll be sold out~!
Maya: Ah! I-I'm sorry! Let's go!
Maya: (I simply cannot miss any developments after this!)

Haruka: That crepe was very delicious. I'm so glad that you introduced me to them~!
Maya: (We were able to please Haruka-san, and Chisato-san easily handled the food reporting... Even the staff member was pleased they were able to secure usable footage...)
Chisato: Fufu. I'm pleased you liked it. Next is—
Staff: That would be this picture postcard workshop. Everyone, please draw some lovely sakura blossom illustrations for us.
Aya: Ngh... I can't draw all that well~...
Staff: Aya-san, could we see your work for—
Hina: Ah, first, take a look at mine! C'mon, you too, Haruka-chan!
Haruka: Wow! Your picture is so well done, Hina-chan! I wouldn't be surprised if it was sold in a store.
Hina: I know, right?! Who else is drawing an interesting-looking picture...? Ah, Eve-chan!
Chisato: Eve-chan's picture... Is this a samurai under a flurry of falling sakura blossoms?
Eve: Yes! Both sakura blossoms and samurai are the heart of Japan!
Haruka: Fufu. You're so interesting, Eve-chan~. Do you like samurai?
Chisato: Eve-chan is also a fan of period dramas and watches them often.
Eve: Yes. I recently saw the production where you played the leading role! It was quite entertaining!
Haruka: Really?! I'm so glad to hear that~!
Chisato: If I'm not mistaken, the sequel will be airing soon, will it not?
Haruka: Right! I would love it if you watched the sequel as well~.
Eve: Of course!
Hina: Now then, let's take a look at Chisato-chan's picture!
Chisato: Huh?! We don't need to show mine, do we...?
Maya: (Hina-san avoided the flow of showing Aya-san's picture by showing her own, and smoothly brought the conversation to Eve-san.)
Maya: (Chisato-san followed her lead to introduce Eve-san and then provided a promo for Haruka-san's TV drama... Bravo!)
Maya: (It seems even Chisato-san did not expect the final twist, but... We're getting the staff member's attention, so it turned out all right!)
Hina: Sigh~, Chisato-chan's picture was so interesting~. Maya-chan, what did you draw~?
Maya: Ah, I—
Maya: (Oh, that was close. I can't just observe the two of them. As a member of Pastel✽Palettes, I have to show off our charms as well!)
Staff: Last will be a special quiz. If you get the answer right, all of you will be provided with an ultra-luxurious dinner after this!
Aya: Hear that? An ultra-luxurious dinner! We have to pass this quiz!
Staff: But only one person can answer the final question! So please decide which one of you will be answering!
Chisato: Only one of us... That is quite the responsibility...
Hina: Oh, oh! Give us a hint first! If you don't, we can't decide who to choose!
Staff: A h-hint...? Very well... but only one. It's a quiz on waka poems associated with sakura blossoms!
Aya: Waka poems?!
Eve: Ah, if I remember correctly, Aya-san has some previous experience in that area...
Maya: Right! She created a guidebook of sakura blossom-themed waka and tanka poems for our previous flower-viewing, so she should be knowledgeable!
Aya: Yeah! I'm confident I can handle this!
Hina: Then shouldn't Aya-chan be the one to answer?
Chisato: Indeed. Thanks to you, Haruka-san, we very much enjoyed today's on-location filming. So please allow our leader to present you with a wonderful dinner!
Haruka: Fufu. Well then, I guess I'll look forward to that. Aya-chan, can we count on you?
Aya: Okay, leave it to me!
Eve: Aya-san, please do your best!
Maya: (I'm sure the staff member definitely wanted to pose the question to Haruka-san...)
Maya: (But thanks to Hina-san and Chisato-san, before they knew it, it became a way to highlight Aya-san!)
Maya: (If Aya-san gets this right, it should dispel the impression of her always making mistakes...!)
Staff: W-well then, let us ask Aya-san! Here is the question...

Idols of Expanding Horizons

The girls finishing the film shoot without incident. Later, they meet up at the talent agency to look back on the program.


Talent Agency

Hina: Ahaha, no matter how many times I see it, I really have to give it to Aya-chan for getting that question wrong~!
Aya: Ngh... Hina-chan... Stop watching that broadcast in front of me~...
Maya: That was quite unexpected...
Hina: Not meeting everyone's expectations under those circumstances was a total Aya-chan thing to pull off~!
Chisato: In a sense, you could call it a skill of hers.
Aya: Even you're laughing at me, Chisato-chan?!
Eve: But the response from viewers was very positive! Even Haruka-san said on an online post that she had fun!
Chisato: True. The show's staff also said that they'd like us to appear again if we have the chance.
Maya: They said they might invite us individually next time, didn't they?
Aya: Fufu. In other words, everyone's charms got through to them properly!
Hina: Well, after seeing that, it's no wonder that the staff member's attention was drawn to Aya-chan's comical nature~!
Chisato: Yes. I suppose that means that Aya-chan's potential exceeded even our expectations.
Aya: N-no more talking about this subject, okay?!
Chisato: Fufu. Why don't we leave teasing Aya-chan at that for now?
Chisato: Speaking of which, Hina-chan, have you discovered the type of idol that you want to be?
Hina: Nope, not at all. I thought about it, but nothing really clicked~.
Chisato: I see. Well, I discovered the type of idol that I would like for you to be.
Hina: Huh?! Really?! Tell me, tell me!
Chisato: You told us that we should make the program more in line with ourselves, rather than following the intentions of the staff, correct?
Chisato: Being able to proceed in the direction you want without just accepting what you are given...
Chisato: Hina-chan, that is your strength, and it will prove useful for surviving in the entertainment industry.
Eve: I know what you mean! Hina-san's words at that time were very heartening!
Chisato: From now on, in order for us to be able to shine as Pastel✽Palettes...
Chisato: I would like Hina-chan to be an idol that expands our borders.
Hina: I see~. So that's the kind of idol you're expecting from me~.
Hina: ... Okay! Then I'll make that the kind of idol I want to be!
Maya: Huh?! Is it okay for you to decide it like that?!
Aya: Th-that's right~! You should be the one to decide stuff like this...
Chisato: This is merely what I wish of you, Hina-chan. I believe you already know this, but there is no need for you to conform to it.
Hina: Yeah, I know! If I wasn't convinced, I wouldn't be saying this!
Hina: But hearing what you said made me feel boppin'♪
Hina: So I think that's okay for now!
Chisato: As long as you're fine with it, then I have no objections...
Eve: Still, I think that making the decision based on whether you felt boppin' or not is very much like you, Hina-san♪
Maya: Ahaha, right. We can also relax if you're going to be that informal about it.
Aya: Still... the second half of the TV show was amazing. It felt like everything was under Hina-chan's and Chisato-chan's control...
Eve: I know what you mean! It felt like the on-location filming proceeded according to Hina-san's ad-libbing and Chisato-san's script...
Maya: You two don't normally join forces. I felt like I caught a glimpse of your true potentials...
Hina: Ahaha! Hear that, Chisato-chan?! They've got some real expectations for us. Wanna keep at it for our next assignment?
Chisato: Fufu. Well, if our teamwork becomes necessary again, perhaps I shall give it some thought.
Maya: I hope that it won't be...
Aya: Ahaha...
