Afterglow heads home after rehearsal at the studio. Ran stops in front of the flower shop.


Studio
 
Tomoe
Cool, that seems like a good place to stop. Why don't we call it a day?
Himari
Great work today, you guys!
Tsugumi
You too! ... Ah, Ran-chan, I just remembered something.
Ran
Hm? What is it?
Tsugumi
I was downtown the other day and ran into your father. He said his schedule has been too tight to come to our concerts recently. He was pretty sad about it.
Ran
He's kinda had his hands full with flower-arrangement meetings... Not that it matters! He doesn't have to come to everything!
Tomoe
Haha... You could say your dad coming to our shows is something that's the "same as always."
Ran
I wish we couldn't.
Moca
Hello~, put some pep in your step, guys~. If we don't clean up faster, Yamabuki Bakery's gonna close~.
Himari
You sure don't change, Moca. Just relax, there's no reason for us to rush. It'll be fine.
Moca
A second saved is a second earned, and I wanna use my seconds to choose which buns I want~.
Tomoe
I guess we're doing this. Alright, guys, hustle.


Downtown
 
Tsugumi
I bet you're happy now that you bought your bread, Moca-chan.
Moca
And I couldn't have done it without you all~. Thank you~.
Himari
Are you actually planning to eat all of those by yourself though?
Moca
Yes ma'am~. I'll have some after dinner, some for breakfast tomorrow, some before noon, and some after school.
Tomoe
That still doesn't seem like it adds up...
Ran
Ah...
Tsugumi
Something wrong, Ran-chan?
Ran
Sorry, do you guys mind if we stop at this flower shop?
Himari
Mmm, smells nice~♪ They're all so adorable.
Tomoe
Which one did you wanna look at, Ran?
Ran
Here... This one.
Moca
That's pretty funny looking~. It doesn't really say "flower," you know?
Ran
Either way, it's still a type of rose.
Tsugumi
Oh~! Interesting~. What's it called?
Ran
It's known as a great burnet.
Ran
It'd be pretty tough to make it the centerpiece of your arrangement, but its dark color can help accentuate parts of it. Just using it can help bring out the mood you're going for. I really like this one.
Himari
Yeah, it does seem like the only thing you'd need to create something more mature!
Tsugumi
This is my first time hearing about this flower. Of course you'd be able to tell us about it, Ran-chan.
Ran
I-I mean... that's what happens when you spend more time with flowers than the average person...
Moca
Once upon a time, you used to avoid them more than the average person.
Himari
Hey~! You shouldn't say stuff like that, Moca!
Tsugumi
I love hearing you talk about them, Ran-chan! Could you tell me about some other ones?!
Ran
That's fine with me...
Himari
Fufu. You've really changed, Ran~.
Tomoe
Yup. Stopping by a flower shop, telling us about your dad... There's no way you would have done that stuff before.
Ran
S-so what?! It's not a problem, is it?! Now stop talking about it...
Moca
Oh~, Ran's getting blushy~.
Himari
Fufu! Now this is the Ran I know ♪
Tomoe
That's one thing about you that stays the same~.
Ran
Himari! Tomoe! Shut up already!
Himari & Tomoe
Ahahahaha.

A New Song and a Show

It's been a while, but Ran and the others decide to have a show. It's decided that Ran will write a new song for it.


CiRCLE - Lobby
 
Ran
Let's see... There's Tuesday and Thursday of next week...
Ran
And then...
Himari
Huh? Wow, Ran, you're already here?
Ran
I had a flower arrangement thing before this. I came after that was done, but I still ended up being a bit early.
Tomoe
Oh, okay. Hope you're not too tired yet.
Ran
You were all together?
Tsugumi
We actually just ran into each other. We still have some time before our rehearsal slot, right? I guess we can all just wait here.
Tomoe
What were you up to, Ran?
Ran
Just checking my schedule. I have flower-arrangement meetings and stuff...
Himari
Ah... I see. Is it a bad time to have a show then?
Ran
A show? Did we have one planned?
Tsugumi
No, but we were just talking about it. The only thing we've been doing recently is playing in the studio, so we thought it might be a good time to have one.
Tomoe
And while we're at it, we thought it'd be cool to come up with a new song too. You seem kinda busy though.
Ran
Sorry... I still wanna have a performance. The new song is a good idea as well.
Moca
Welp, you heard the woman. Let's have ourselves a show with a new song. Of course, we'd have to figure out when we can have it.
Himari
Yeah, sounds like a plan! But don't push yourself too hard, okay, Ran? I'll put together everyone's schedule, so make sure you guys update your chat calendars!
Ran
Can't. Don't know how...
Moca
Ugh~, didn't someone teach you the last time~?
Ran
Yeah, Moca did, which means nothing was explained and I didn't learn jack... You show me how to do it.
Himari
The calendar's not the only thing you don't update, Ran! You never add anything to your photo album!!
Ran
You already know I don't take pictures.
Himari
W-well, yeah, but still~!
Ran
You're the one in charge of it anyway. Forget about that. I'm asking you if you can teach me how to use the calendar...
Himari
Oh... right! Sorry about that. Okay, so first...
Himari
... Then you just have to tap the "Confirm" button, and you're good to go!
Ran
Confirmed...
Tsugumi
Ah, there it is! Your calendar updated!
Moca
You leveled up, Ran-chan~♪
Tomoe
... Whoa. That's a full schedule you got there.
Himari
Yeah! Wait, mine has less stuff on it than everyone else's...
Tsugumi
So you have a flower-arrangement study session. Good luck with that, Ran-chan!
Ran
Sorry...
Tomoe
It's all good. Not much we could've done. I mean, we only just started planning for the concert.
Ran
I won't be able to make it to any rehearsals next week, but I plan to write the music and the lyrics during my free time...
Moca
Okay, then we'll be practicing the songs we already have in the meantime~.
Tomoe
That's right! Can't wait to see what you come up with, Ran. Don't overdo it though, got it?
Ran
Got it. Thanks.
Moca
Hii-chan, you're not gonna do the thing?
Himari
Huh? Am I forgetting something?
Moca
You mean you don't know~? Whatever~, I'll guess we'll just skip it~.
Himari
Wait, what are you talking about?!
Tomoe
I think she means... You know...
Tsugumi
H-hey, hey, hoh~... No?
Himari
Ah!
Ran
Aw man~. And I was just in the mood to do it too.
Himari
What~?! You are totally lying~!
Moca
Boy, you really missed out, Hii-chan~.
Tomoe
Ahaha. That's too bad, Himari.
Himari
Hmph!!
Moca
Let's make this show a good one, Ran~.
Ran
You know we will.

Is the New Song Done?

Afterglow meets up after some time apart. Ran shows the others the lyrics to the song, but...


A Few Days Later
 
Studio
 
Tomoe
It's been a while since the five of us have been in the studio together! Ran, you're just coming from one of your flower-arrangement meetings, huh?
Himari
What do you actually do at those things?
Ran
A bunch of stuff.
Himari
Okay~, but like what~?!
Ran
The iemoto... Well, my father in this case... My father talks about a specific topic, or he helps us students care for and arrange flowers... Sometimes we'll just get together and have tea too, though.
Moca
That sure seems like something you'd hate~. Do you manage okay?
Ran
I more so don't like having to talk to strangers... But these are people I arrange flowers with, so... I guess you can call it good learning experience.
Tsugumi
That's pretty amazing, Ran-chan...
Ran
N-not really... Anyway, enough about that. I have something more important to show you, guys. Our new song.
Tomoe
Oh! Seriously?! You were so busy though. Thanks for doing that.
Ran
I already thought of the lyrics too. Give it a listen.
Himari
Wow! This is so exciting! Let's get to it already!
All But Ran
...
Ran
Uhhh... Pretty awkward silence, guys...
Tsugumi
I thought it was really cool! I especially liked the part leading up to the chorus!
Tomoe
I think it's a good song too. I can't wait to see what kind of arrangements we can come up with. It's just... Well...
Tomoe
I'm not sure I could follow the lyrics.
Ran
Huh...?
Himari
They were pretty hard for me too. They felt kinda different than the ones you usually write.
Ran
That's not what I was going for... What exactly makes them so hard to follow?
Himari
Hmm~. I'm not sure what to say... I don't think I could put it into words...
Tomoe
Well, you know how you normally write stuff based on our experiences? That makes it so that we all get it... So that we're all on the same page...
Tomoe
This time, they were a bit over my head. Like they didn't really click with me, you know?
Tsugumi
They're definitely cool! They have the right feeling to them! But... there were parts I had a hard time understanding.
Ran
Oh...
Ran
That's my bad. I'll take another look at them then.
Tomoe
Sorry for all the negative feedback, Ran. I know you took time out of your busy schedule to write those.
Tomoe
I think the melody is awesome though. While you're thinking about the lyrics, we'll work on adding our instruments to the mix.
Himari
Yeah, that's a good plan!
Ran
...
Moca

Walking Home
 
Residential Area
 
Himari
Oh yeah. After looking at everyone's schedule, I found a concert we can actually take part in. Check the chat, okay? I already sent the information!
Tsugumi
Thank you, Himari-chan! We'll have to work hard during the coming days to prepare for it.
Moca
Hii-chan, about this show... Isn't this in the afternoon on a weekday?
Himari
What?! Show me... Oh... You're right... Ngh, sorry...
Tomoe
Ahaha, no biggie. Just the fact that you're looking makes a big difference.
Tsugumi
It sure does! Sorry to always leave this responsibility to you.
Himari
Ohhh, you two are so sweet~...
Ran
...
Moca
What's wrong, Ran? You've had this look that says "hmph" going on for a while now~.
Ran
Nothing...
Moca
I see. So that's just your resting Ran face, huh~?
Ran
Exactly.
Moca
So you're not thinking about the lyrics~?
Ran
Just trying to figure out why they didn't make sense to everyone else.
Moca
I think I'd agree about them being different. It kinda feels like they're trying to reach new heights~.
Ran
You think?
Moca
I don't think. I know~. I am an English-language genius after all~.
Ran
Right. Either way, I'll just try writing them over. I wanna have a new song, you know?
Moca
Yeah. Good luck~.
Moca
(Does she not realize? There's a reason your lyrics can't reach us.)
Moca
(And it's probably because...)

Dark Clouds All Around

The members of Afterglow have trouble making their new song. It's a first-time experience, and little by little, they begin to worry...


A Few Days Later
 
Studio
 
Himari
Hmm~... So maybe the bass part should be like this?
Tomoe
No, no, then it won't sound right when you and Moca play together.
Himari
Oh. Hmm... It's no good! I can't think of anything that works!
Tsugumi
We haven't made much progress with the arrangement, have we...?
Ran
Doing it without the lyrics is pretty tough, huh...? Sorry.
Himari
No, that's not it!
Tomoe
When I read the lyrics, I kinda got a sad vibe from them. The melody is upbeat, but something just makes me feel blue... Like this part about the flowers blooming and falling being a cycle.
Tsugumi
I actually have a more optimistic view of that section. I can't explain why though...
Himari
What image were you going for when you wrote these, Ran?
Ran
I'm not sure how to answer that... I wanted "the same as always," but... I can't really explain it.
Moca
The same as always you say~...? Now that's a hard one.
Himari
But if that were really the case, then we should be able to understand them, right? Hmm, I wonder why we're all reading them differently.
Ran
Sorry I can't say more. I'm gonna give writing them another go.
Tomoe
We can't thank you enough for doing this with your hectic schedule. Let's practice the songs we already have! We can also take another look at the arrangement.
Moca
Ehhh~, I've already got our old songs down perfectly though~.
Himari
Don't you start that again! We have to practice hard for our next show.
Tsugumi
Speaking of that, have you found any good ones, Himari-chan?
Himari
... Ah...
Tsugumi
H-Himari-chan... Did you forget...?
Himari
I-I'm still looking! I just need a bit more time! Yeah~, you might think it just comes down to searching online, but it's actually pretty tough finding one!
Tsugumi
Th-thanks for always taking care of that! I'd be happy to give you a hand. Just let me know if there's anything I can do.
Moca
I sure hope there's a nice concert out there for us to be part of, Hii-chan~.
Himari
Ngh... I'll look as hard as I can.
Tomoe
Haha. Cool, then let's get to practicing some songs. What should we start with?
Ran
...
Tsugumi
... Yep, looks like it's all cleaned up. Shall we head home?
Tomoe
Nice work today, guys! I'm kinda hungry now. Y'all up for grabbing a bite?
Himari
I sure am!
Ran
I wanna get back to writing the lyrics, so... I'm gonna leave.
Himari
Oh, okay...
Ran
Sorry I can't spare more time for you guys. Feel free to eat without me though. See ya...
Himari
Ran...
Tomoe
I wonder if she's okay... Sounds like she's having a pretty hard time with those lyrics.
Himari
I hope it's not that she's dealing with something and keeping it to herself again... You know she likes to stay quiet about that kind of stuff.
Tomoe
Maybe we should just keep an eye out for now.
Himari
It's just that we've never been stumped when it comes to Ran's lyrics before. It makes me worry~...
Tomoe
You think she's going through something at home like last time...?
Moca
I wouldn't bet on that guess. In fact, judging from how she talks about flowers and stuff, sounds like things are going pretty well.
Tomoe
Good point...
Tsugumi
I want to try reading over the lyrics again! I think they're lovely, and I can tell how cool they are. I just can't say anything more than that...
Moca
If only we could see inside Ran's mind~.
Himari
Yeah...

Same as Always?

Ran wonders why the other's didn't feel the same about the song. Moca comes to find her...

Ran
(What is it that's keeping the others from understanding the lyrics?)
Ran
(I just wrote them how I usually do. They were the same as always...)
Moca
Guess who~...
Ran
Huh?
Moca
C'mon~. I told you to guess 'who'. There's no way 'huh' could be the right answer~.
Ran
Okay, but you didn't even cover my eyes. Who says that when they're just gonna show themselves from the start?
Moca
Heh heh~. Oh, don't be like that~.
Ran
Can I help you?
Moca
Nuh-uh, not especially. Oh, did you tell Papa Ran about the show?
Ran
Nope. Actually, I never tell him, but somehow, he always shows up. How? ... Someone must be leaking him the info...
Moca
Who could it be~? Hii-chan would be our best guess, no?
Ran
I wish she would cut it out. And now, all of his other students know I'm in a band too.
Ran
And when I asked them how they know, they said my dad told them. Seriously, why does he do that? I don't see the point, and I didn't ask him to share my business.
Moca
Ohhh~, we should invite all of them to our next show then~.
Ran
That's the exact opposite of what I just said I wanted!
Moca
Don't say that~. They might even send over flowers to the venue, you know~.
Ran
Please stop. The band is one thing, and flower arranging is another. They should be separate.
Moca
... Up until recently, we were the only ones you were spending time with.
Ran
Did you say something?
Moca
It's nothing. Just talking to myself~. I was saying how you have gloriously spread your wings and flown into the flower-arrangement world.
Ran
... What? It's definitely not as serious as you make it sound.
Moca
Well~, I don't know about that~. It seems like a pretty big deal to us. Anyway, Ran, have you been thinking of new lyrics?
Ran
Yeah, kinda. Nothing's really coming to mind though. I wonder what the problem is with the first ones.
Moca
What, indeed~. Isn't the afternoon a bad time to be trying to come up with lyrics though? You won't come up with anything. Pretty sure you wanna stick with the evening.
Ran
Huh...
Moca
Being showered in the sunlight leaves you all warm and fuzzy, and then you get drowsy. I really don't think it's a good time for writing a song~.
Moca
And with that, I sleep. Wake me up in 20~.
Ran
Ah, hold on! ... Sigh, fine, whatever.
Moca
(She's been putting so much time into flower arranging. That's something of note to us, but right now, it just seems normal to Ran.)
Moca
Night~...

Ran-chan, how are the lyrics coming along?
Ran
I think I need more time. Sorry.
Himari
It's not often that it takes this long for you to put them together. Did something happen recently, Ran? You've been so busy. Maybe you're not feeling well, or something like that...?
Ran
Nah, I'm fine.
Tomoe
Are you sure?
Ran
Yes. I just said nothing is wrong.
Tomoe
If something comes up, let us know right away, okay? We wanna be there to help you too, you know?
Ran
Seriously, I'm okay.
Himari
B-but—
Moca
I know writing lyrics is hard and all, but you guys are making it sound like this is all Ran's fault. That's not right, is it?
Tsugumi
Th-that's true... We're sorry, Ran-chan.
Ran
Don't worry about it...
Tsugumi
How about we practice our other songs again today?! There are some parts I wanted to focus on.
Tsugumi
Ran-chan, can I ask you to join us?
Ran
Sure...
Tomoe
Something's... not right. This feels weird...
Himari
Yeah... Is this still our "same as always"?

Ah, Ran~!
Ran
Huh? Hey, guys... What's going on?
Tomoe
Interested in joining us at the studio?
Ran
What...? But we're not supposed to have rehearsal today.
Tsugumi
Yes, that's true, but we were only asking in case you had time. And we feel bad about making you do all the work for the new song, so we were hoping we could help somehow.
Ran
Ah...
Moca
Is this a bad time?
Ran
Sorry... I thought we weren't gonna practice, so I planned to go to the flower-arrangement meeting... I already put it on my schedule...
Tomoe
Oh...
Himari
Th-the lyrics! We wanted to think about them together! If not today, what about tomorrow? Or, even better, we can take just five minutes right now!
Tsugumi
Himari-chan...
Ran
Can't, I gotta go... I have an image for the lyrics I wanna work out in my head. Just give me a little more time, then we can—
Himari
... You've changed, Ran.
Ran
What...?
Himari
You've been really weird lately. It's not only the lyrics, it's a bunch of things...
Tomoe
I've been worried about you too. What's been going on with you?
Ran
... Yeah. I have changed.
Himari
Huh...?
Ran
You're right about that. And I did it so that we could continue being together, the same as always. I did it so that... our band could stay together!
Ran
I've faced my issues with my father, I've dealt with all the flower-arrangement stuff... So yeah, I've changed! And I did it so that we as a group wouldn't have to!!
Himari
...!
Ran
So, what?! You wish I didn't?! You want things to be like old times?! Should I be a part of the band just so that I can run away from my problems at home instead?!
Himari
N-no, Ran! That's not what I meant! I—
Ran
I'm doing what I can so that we can stay together... Why...? Why would you say something like that?
Ran
Why...?
Himari
... Sorry. I'm sorry, Ran.
Ran
...
Tsugumi
Ah! Ran-chan!
Moca
...
Himari
Why... did I say that to her...? Ngh...
Tsugumi
We have to catch up to her...!
Moca
Nah, she said she had that flower thing to go to. It's probably better not to go after her.
Tsugumi
Oh...
Moca
I don't think we'd catch up to her at this point anyway.
Himari
Now what...? What am I supposed to do...?
Tomoe
...
Moca
(I realized that Ran changed, but I didn't say anything... Tsugu wanted to chase after her, but I stopped her... There has to be a reason I made these decisions... What are they?)
Moca
(Is it because... I was scared?)
Moca
... Just what are we supposed to do?

Ran changes while they stay the same. What can they do to keep up with Ran...?

Himari
Maybe... we shouldn't have practice today?
Tsugumi
Yeah... maybe not.
Himari
...
Tsugumi
... Are you alright, Himari-chan?
Himari
I can't say that I am... Ehehe. I... finally realized something after what Ran said.
Himari
I had thought that with all the things we were doing as Afterglow that I was growing as a person.
Himari
But that actually wasn't true. Ran was the only one moving forward... Meanwhile, I was stuck in the same old place being the same old Himari.
Himari
...
Tomoe
Himari...
Tomoe
I'm pretty much in the same boat. I thought I understood Ran and everything she was going through, but I didn't.
Tomoe
At some point, I must have stopped moving forward, as did my view of her. Both are frozen in time, and I didn't even realize it.
Tomoe
Ran fought and fought, just so that the band could keep going. She faced her problems head-on. She changed herself so that everything else could continue to be the same... But what have I done?
Tsugumi
Huh...?
Tomoe
What exactly have I been able to do for the band?
Tsugumi
We supported Ran-chan and gave her the push she needed... At least, that was the idea...
Tomoe
Yeah, we all lent her our strength, but in the end, she was the only one who had to struggle through hard times. We encouraged her to change... and we just looked on.
Tomoe
But we hardly saw what was happening, both to Ran and to ourselves...
Tomoe
There's no way Ran's lyrics would have ever been able to reach me...
Himari
I wanna apologize to her... For real this time...
Tomoe
That's something we can do very easily. I feel like what's happening right now is much bigger than that though.
Tomoe
If we wanna get closer to her lyrics, then we... we have to change too. No doubt about it.
Himari
But how?
Tomoe
I'm not sure... We're still at the point where we have to figure that out.
Tsugumi
W-well...! This is something we need to do if we want to stay together. I'll have to do everything I can.
Himari
And I will too. I'm not exactly sure what I'm supposed to do or how I'm supposed to do it, but...
Himari
I'll try my hardest to catch up to Ran. I mean, Afterglow is gonna be together forever, right?

Ran...?
Ran
Moca...
Moca

Moca
I'm sorry, Ran.
Ran
Huh...?
Moca
I'm really sorry.
Ran
With that temper tantrum I threw, and the way I ran out... I guess I haven't changed at all, huh?
Ran
I tried to because I wanted us all to stay together, but when it comes down to it, I'm still the same person on the inside.
Moca
No, you have changed. And you've reached a place we don't even know about yet.
Ran
What...?
Moca
You may not have realized it, but with all those things you're doing, like trying your best to make everything work out at home... That has opened your eyes to parts of the world that we're probably unaware of...
Moca
You can see things that we're still blind to.
Moca
Ah...! B-but that's not to say you're in the wrong here. It just means that the rest of us have spent a lot of time being unable to pull ourselves away from that roof.
Moca
... This isn't your fault, Ran.
Ran
...
Ran
I don't even know where this place that I reached is. And now I have no idea what the rest of you can see.
Ran
If this was how things were gonna end up... then maybe it would have been better if I didn't change...
Moca
That's... not true... No, you're wrong!
Ran
But I don't understand you guys anymore! Nnn... Ngh...
Moca
Ah... S-sorry. But hey...
Ran
Ahhh... Nnn...

A Few Days Later
 
Convenience Store
 
Lisa
Oh, Moca! Can you fill out the product order form?
Moca
Okay~...
Lisa
What? Wait, what's wrong?
Moca
Right away~.
Lisa
Moca... Is everything okay? You always complain about how much work it is to do inventory and then don't do it. This is pretty weird for you.
Moca
Hmm~... Are you sure~...?
Lisa
I knew something was up! The way you're answering, it's like you're not even paying attention!
Lisa
We get off at the same time today, right? Don't leave without me, you hear? You can talk to me about whatever's on your mind!


Restaurant
 
Lisa
I see~. So Ran has changed, huh~?
Moca
...
Lisa
Doesn't it feel like we've done this before? I sat and listened to what was bothering you. Ahaha, it's like déjà vu.
Moca
That was back when I didn't wanna be too pushy with Ran, so I thought I would just keep my thoughts to myself and look out for her...
Moca
But you taught me that that was the wrong thing to do, that I shouldn't just sit back and watch... And I told Ran what was on my mind... Not in the most graceful manner, but I did.
Moca
A lot has happened, but Afterglow is still here. Ran has willingly changed so that we wouldn't have to... But, yet again, she's the only one struggling through hard times.
Lisa
Hold on, Moca. Don't tell me you think what she's dealing with is your fault.
Moca
Well... It is, isn't it?
Moca
It just feels like all the choices I've made trying to help her up until this point have actually been the wrong ones.
Lisa
Moca...
Moca
I also had already realized that Ran was a few steps ahead of us, but I couldn't get myself to say anything...
Moca
I think I was afraid... Afraid of everyone else knowing. Afraid of Ran knowing...
Moca
... I was unable to do what you told me in the end, and now... everything is a complete mess.
Lisa
As I thought. You and I are alike, Moca.
Moca
Huh...?
Lisa
For example, you don't believe in the decisions you've made! Until very recently, I thought I had been doing the wrong thing, over and over, and I would blame myself for what was happening.
Lisa
But one thing is for sure: you're not the only one at fault. Ran was able to face what was ahead of her because you were there. I have no doubt about that.
Lisa
Ran wouldn't be who or where she is today if it wasn't for you four. I know it hurts to think about now, but I'm sure the day will come when you no longer believe that everything you've done was a mistake.
Moca
... You think so? I don't know~.
Lisa
Yes! I know it will!
Moca
... I wonder what I can do right now though. Is my only choice really just to wait?
Lisa
Hmm~... That, you'll have to think about!
Moca
Aww~...
Lisa
There's no point if I just tell you everything. If you don't come up with an answer on your own, you'll end up full of regret, just like now.
Moca
You're a tough teacher, Lisa-san~...
Lisa
Ahaha. I do it for you, my adorable little Moca-chan!
Moca
Ooo~...
Lisa
You can do it! If you really try, I'll reward you with some baked goods.
Moca
Ohhh~?! Okay, I will~.
Lisa
Jeez~, so quick to change your tune, aren't you~?!
Moca
Ehehe~. Thanks, Lisa-san.

Even If You Don't Know

Tsugumi is concerned because Ran won't answer her message. Eve and the others reach out to her...


Hazawa Coffee
 
Tsugumi
Let's see... "Great burnet, language of flowers"... Enter.
Tsugumi
Hmmm... "The flower represents change, transitions, as well as the aspirations of tomorrow"...
Tsugumi
(Very... fitting for Ran-chan.)
Tsugumi
...
Tsugumi
(She still hasn't answered my message... Maybe my understanding of the lyrics was incorrect after all...)
Tsugumi
Sigh...
Chisato
What happened, Tsugumi-chan?
Tsugumi
Huh?! W-with what?!
Kanon
You've been doing a lot of sighing. Is something bothering you...?
Tsugumi
W-well... not really...
Eve
Tsugumi-san! Please tell us if something is wrong! I would like to be of assistance!
Tsugumi
Uhm, it's just... Okay, I suppose now is a good time since there aren't too many customers. So...
Chisato
Alright... so you don't understand the lyrics Ran-chan wrote. She said she comes up with them by taking what you all have felt and putting that into words, correct?
Kanon
Which means you've become unable to understand what Ran-chan is thinking, right...? I can see why you would feel uneasy about that.
tsugumi
Exactly. And that's what started this whole thing. Ever since, nothing seems to be going right. In fact, they're only getting worse...
Tsugumi
I've always had a lot of respect for Ran-chan, ever since we were little girls. Even as a kid, she held her own opinions. It was so cool how put together and tough she was...
Tsugumi
I've been trying to catch up to her ever since. But now... I feel like I'm losing sight of her... None of us can understand her lyrics... or her, for that matter...
Tsugumi
If things continue like this, we'll...
Eve
Tsugumi-san, hold back your tears! As long as you all want Afterglow to stay together, it will be fine! Surely, it will not come to an end!
Eve
You mentioned that Ran-san has changed, but she still loves Afterglow, isn't that right?
Tsugumi
Y-yes... I think so.
Eve
Then all will be well! Don't you agree, Chisato-san?!
Chisato
Fufu. Certainly. That sentiment is surprisingly important.
Tsugumi
And I feel the same way she does!
Chisato
Back when your band provided ours with that song, I thought of Ran-chan as being extremely serious and quite strong... Even if she wasn't very open with her feelings.
Chisato
Once she makes a decision, she's determined to follow through. She has the ability to take something from her struggles, and she can use her sensibility and intuition to make whatever it is a part of her.
Chisato
... That's the type of girl I see her as. Would that be accurate?
Tsugumi
Yes, I think you're right. With every challenge, she learns something new, and she takes that and turns it into lyrics or music... She's so amazing!
Chisato
If she's been putting forward a genuine effort toward her flower-arranging activities, then it's possible that she's picked up a new perspective or source of motivation along the way.
Tsugumi
That could be...! I... was actually just looking up some information about this flower that Ran-chan likes!
Tsugumi
I thought that, maybe, if I come to understand the things that are near and dear to her... I'd have a better chance of catching up to her.
Chisato
Fufu, that makes sense. On the other hand, if you all become Ran-chan, could you still say that you're Afterglow?
Tsugumi
A-ahaha... Good point. Either way, you all have given me advice that'll help me figure her out. Thank you so much.
Kanon
Good luck, Tsugumi-chan! And sorry I couldn't come up with anything too useful...
Tsugumi
But this was useful! Just by having someone listen, I was able to sort out my thoughts a little bit!
Tsugumi
The five of us have been friends since we were kids, so I haven't had many chances to talk to people outside of our little circle.
Tsugumi
That's why... I'm happy to have someone else who will sit and listen to what I have to say♪
Kanon
I know that feeling all too well. I think it's thanks to Hello, Happy World! that my horizons were broadened... And that's how I was able to become friends with you and the others, Tsugumi-chan.
Tsugumi
It's possible that being able to talk with you all like this is what change looks like for me!
Tsugumi
I think... I just realized something huge!
Chisato
Fufu, that's a pleased face if I've ever seen one.
Eve
Stay strong, Tsugumi-san!
Tsugumi
Mhm! I'll try! Thank you, Eve-chan!
Tsugumi
(Ran-chan, I'm almost there! Just a little further... and we may be looking at the same sky, once again.)
Tsugumi
(Please... Give me a little more time!)

Look who it is! Hello~, Ran-chan~!
Ran
H-Hina-san?!
Hina
Whatcha doin'? Oh, are these new lyrics? Lemme see~!
Ran
Ah, h-hey...!
Hina
Hmm~... So, uhhh, what does it mean?
Ran
Huh...?
Hina
I don't get it. They seem cool, sure, but that's about all I'm getting from them.
Ran
... I don't even know.
Hina
What?
Ran
Pretty much no one gets what they're supposed to mean. That's why I'm having trouble in the first place...
Hina
Why don't you know?
Ran
That's what I'm trying to tell you! I don't know!
Hina
Hmm, I see.
Hina
You know though, I find things that I don't understand to be super interesting!
Ran
... Well, I don't. They always come with more than their fair share of pain.
Hina
I always have people telling me that they don't get me. The girls in Pastel✽Palettes are different though.
Hina
Whenever something stumps me, we all think about it together. And they even do their best to understand me. That's why I love them so much!
Hina
When something is a mystery to me, I get enjoyment out of it. Still, my love for my band members is even stronger than that! If anything comes up and confuses me, they help me work through it!
Ran

Ran
So you mean—
Hina
Ah! I have a job I have to do for Pastel✽Palettes now! Gotta go! See ya, Ran-chan!
Ran
Wha—Wait! Hina-san!
Ran
Think together... huh?
Ran
(The unknown has been unsettling. It makes me feel very sad and lonely, but... these feelings are nothing but a waste of time.)
Ran
(If I feel lonely, I just have to do something to change that. We can... think together.)

Sigh... Here I am wasting time, yet again...
Haneoka Girls' Academy - School Gate
 
Himari
Tomoe~, ready to go~?
Tomoe
Where are Moca and Tsugu?
Himari
... Not sure. I guess Tsugu has student council stuff.
Tomoe
What about Ran?
Himari
... I don't know.
Tomoe
You don't, huh? Yeah, I don't know about her either.
Himari
I've read her lyrics over and over, but no matter how many times I go through them, I don't understand them like I used to.
Himari
I just keep feeling unsure about what to say and what to do, and it gets me worked up and I start to freak out...
Himari
What are we supposed to do, Tomoe? At this rate, Ran will become a complete mystery to us, and the band... will start to fall apart...
Himari
If only I had kept what I said to myself...
Tomoe
... Himari...
Tomoe
Wanna go to the roof?
Himari
Huh...?
Tomoe
You know, 'cause the sunset's lookin' nice.
Haneoka Girls' Academy - Roof
 
Tomoe
Man, watching the sun go down from here is always the best, don't you think?
Himari
Yeah. It is.
Tomoe
... Hey...
Tomoe
It's always sunsets with us, isn't it?
Himari
M-mhm...
Tomoe
Yep. No doubt about it.
Himari
Tomoe...?
Tomoe
Ever since we formed the band... Actually, no. Before that even. We've seen so many of them, and they were all moments to be treasured.
Tomoe
Along the way, while experiencing so many different things together, we came to realize how great the night sky can be too. No sun, no sunset... But you know what? This view right here is my favorite.
Tomoe
... I wonder if Ran still enjoys the sunset.
Himari
Wh-what are you talking about? Why would you say that...?
Tomoe
Check this out.
Himari
One of the photos... from Inoshima? It's the one Ran took. She used the monochrome filter, even though she was taking a picture of the sunset.
Tomoe
Right. It came up when I was looking over our photos in the chat. It's the only one she's ever uploaded... Do you think this is what she sees when she looks at the sunset?
Himari
Huh...?
Tomoe
I'm... afraid...
Tomoe
When I look at us now, I wonder if we all see the same thing when we gaze at the sky. I wonder if Ran... if you all like to watch the sun set...
Tomoe
What if everything just keeps changing...?
Himari
T-Tomoe! Don't talk like that! That's not gonna happen! I'm sure of it!
Tomoe
But look! We've been friends for so... so long, and now we can't understand each other?! How are we supposed to deal with something like that?!
Tomoe
I can't stand to go through this kind of change... It's just too scary for me.
Himari
Then don't! You don't have to!
Tomoe
Himari...?
Himari
If you don't wanna change, just stay the way you are!
Himari
This is the same as when you decided you wanted to keep being Ako-chan's version of cool. You can stay the same and continue loving the sunset the way you do.
Himari
Besides... I don't think this is what change means.
Tomoe
What do you mean by "this"?
Himari
I mean if there are things you don't plan on changing, then there's no need to force them to! That's the whole reason why Ran is doing what she's doing! Isn't that what she said?
Himari
So, basically... y-you know what I'm trying to say, I think...
Tomoe
Pft... Ahaha!
Himari
St-stop laughing~!
Tomoe
Sorry, my bad! Thanks, Himari! You're right though. We can't go changing the important stuff.
Tomoe
Not if we wanna continue being together. Yeah... That sounds right.
Himari
Hey, Tomoe! Let's get everyone up here!
Tomoe
Y-you mean now?!
Himari
C'mon! Do you see how pretty this sunset is? No one should be allowed to miss this!
Tomoe
B-but... it looks like Ran is busy with one of her flower-arrangement meetings...
Himari
Ugh~!! Whatever! Just call them up here already! It'll be pointless if you're not the one to do it~!!
Tomoe
F-fine, fine! Alright...
Tomoe

What Doesn't Change

The other Afterglow members have been called to the roof after no tseeing each other for a while. What does Tomoe say to the group...?


Haneoka Girls' Academy - Roof
 
Tsugumi
Tomoe-chan, Himari-chan! I got the message! What happened?!
Tomoe
H-hey... Tsugu, you came.
Tsugumi
Of course. You said it was an emergency...
Moca
Sending out a distress signal, huh, Tomo-chin~? What's wrong?
Tomoe
Well...
Himari
Moca, where's Ran?
Moca
Hmm~, no clue. Think she'll come?
Ran
Tomoe! I saw your message. What's up?
Tomoe
Ran! Thanks for coming. ... Uhm... I sent the SOS because, well...
Tomoe
The sunset was really pretty... I wanted us to see it together.
Ran
... What?
Tsugumi
R-Ran-chan!
Tomoe
How do I put this...? It's just... I had something I wanted to tell you, Ran. Actually, it's for all of you to hear... But I wasn't sure how to get everyone together...
Himari & Tomoe
I...!
Himari & Tomoe
Ah...
Himari
Ran, I... I feel bad about saying something so inconsiderate to you.
Ran
... I shouldn't have yelled and stormed out either...
Himari
It's okay. I... wasn't thinking about your feelings...
Himari
I'm really sorry.
Tomoe
I wanna apologize too. I was shocked to hear you were changing so that we could stay together.
Tomoe
It made me wonder what the rest of us have been doing while you were trying your best to deal with your problems at home.
Tomoe
I felt like we'd been encouraging you to go through painful times by yourself and just sitting back... You kept on changing and we just stopped... "The same as always" sounds exactly right for us.
Ran
Th-that's not—!
Tomoe
And those thoughts started to make me worry. Maybe more and more things would start to change... Maybe we would no longer be able to watch the sunset together.
Moca
...
Tomoe
B-but you know what?! I'm gonna keep watching it from here!
Ran
Tomoe...?
Tomoe
I-it's like... You've changed so that we could be together, right? But if we want that to continue, I think there are also things that need to stay the same.
Tomoe
I love watching this sunset together, and I wanna keep treasuring that feeling for as long as I possibly can.
Tomoe
As I think about it, I realize change is scary for me. So instead, I'll protect the things that need to stay the same.
Tomoe
... Sorry. I don't even know what I'm saying at this point.
Ran
It's fine. I got it.
Tsugumi
I did too, Tomoe-chan! We feel the same. This sunset is my favorite thing in the world as well.
Tomoe
I-it is...? Awesome...
Ran
I was able to change because you were all there for me.
Ran
At first, I was afraid to, and that's why I continued running away from so many things. But you all were the ones who pushed me and watched out for me. You're the reason I'm the person I am today.
Ran
It was my choice to change myself, but I started understanding you all less, and that scared me. That's why I ran out. It made me uneasy. I felt lonely... I wondered why my lyrics didn't make sense to you.
Ran
I think I was being selfish, though. What I wrote couldn't reach you guys because I didn't properly understand you or myself... I'm sorry.
Himari
Ran! That's not why! We're the ones at fault...
Ran
You all always end up lending me a hand... and it's like I haven't been able to do anything to return the favor.
Moca
...
Ran
So...
Ran
... If changing in order to keep things the same will help us... I'd like to continue trying to move forward. And I'll do it for real this time.
Ran
I won't stop. I'll keep going so that this roof, the place where everything began, will be with us forever.
Himari
Ran...!
Moca
Ran...
Tsugumi
Once again, you're showing just how cool you are, Ran-chan... I've just been thinking and thinking, and I still can't come up with a way to catch up to you.
Tsugumi
It might... not even be possible for me at this point. Ehehe... Oh, but still!
Tsugumi
That world you're looking at right now... I want to see it too one day. Until then, I'll be chasing right after you!
Ran
Thanks... I appreciate that.
Himari
Ohhh... Ran~!!
Tsugumi
H-Himari-chan, are you crying?!
Himari
I-it's just...! Ran is so awesome...
Ran
H-hey! Get off of me! What's wrong?!
Himari
I know the Ran I've been looking at is one that was frozen in time. Maybe I couldn't accept that you were changing and, at some point, started pretending like I couldn't see what was happening.
Himari
But I think I've finally laid my eyes on the person you are now. You've become so cool and strong...
Tomoe
So it hit you hard then, huh?
Himari
Y-yeah... You really have changed, Ran.
Moca
Mhm, ya sure have. Before, you would've been having a big ol' fight with Tomo-chin.
Tomoe
You might be right...
Tsugumi
If you think about it, that must mean that Tomoe-chan is changing little by little too!
Ran
Yep. You're looking a bit cooler yourself, Tomoe.
Tomoe
Ahaha... You know it.
Moca
Ran, don't go too far ahead and leave little Moca-chan behind now~. I'll be so lonely~.
Ran
Can't promise I won't. I don't plan on stopping anytime soon.
Moca
What~? You're breaking my heart~...

Himari
Of course I will! C'mon, a show during the afternoon on a weekday? Tell me, who did this?!

Ahaha... Sorry about that. I'll take a good look♪

Himari-chan, you seem so happy.
Himari
Of course I am. I can finally get back to taking care of business as Himari, the leader of Afterglow.
Himari
I reserve our spot in concerts, schedule our time at the studio, and all sorts of things while Moca teases me... That's my "same as always."

And I will fulfill it so that the rest of you can keep yours going. That's my role as the head of the group!

You go, Captain Himari~!
Himari
Fufu~♪ That's right, keep it coming! Oh, that' right. Ran... what should we do about that new song?
Ran
Uhh, if you guys don't mind... Do you think we can come up with the lyrics together?
Tsugumi
Wow...! Yeah, I'd love to do that!
Himari
Me too... Although, I'm not sure how much help we'll be...
Ran
Those lyrics weren't created with the rest of you in mind. It's like I took off writing and blocked out everything that didn't have to do with me.
Ran
Please, forgive me... I feel like we're all on our way to "the same as always," though.
Ran
I wanna write these lyrics together.
Himari
Ran... Thank you! Yeah! The way things are now, I think the five of us can make the greatest lyrics ever!
Tsugumi
Mhm! I'll try my best!

Written by all of us, huh? ... Nice. Cool, now we just gotta find us a good concert.
Himari
I won't let you down~!

Absolutely~. But at the same time, we wanna be together, so... it's even tougher.
Ran
Fufu... Ahaha. Moca, I have no idea what you're talking about.
Moca
I don't even know what I'm saying~.
Ran
The very relationship we all have is what makes us wanna spend time with one another despite how hard things get, no?
Moca
Hm... Sounds right.
Moca
We do all wanna be together, so yeah.
Ran
Right. Thanks for always being by my side.
Moca
You're so open with your feelings, Ran~.

Oh, shut up. You won't hear me say it ever again.

But one thing is for sure: you're not the only one at fault. Ran was able to face what was ahead of her because you were there. I have no doubt about that.

Our "Same as Always"

Ran and the others think about what their "same as always" is. What do they figure out by doing this...?


Haneoka Girls' Academy - Roof
 
Moca
So~? How will we be fixing the lyrics? What would be the best way to go about this?
Ran
The same as always... I guess?
Himari
Oh, okay~! ... What does that mean?
Tomoe
I think we should take some time... to think about what "the same as always" means to us now.
Himari
We can think about ourselves and the lyrics at the same time if we do that. Nice idea, Tomoe!
Tomoe
Hehe~, I know, right? I'm like some sort of genius.
Moca
Hii-chan, see what you did~. Look how large Tomo-chin's ego is getting.
Tomoe
C'mon, can't you let me have a big head now and then~?
All Except Tomoe
Ahaha!
Himari
Okay, let's start by thinking about what the phrase means to us!
Tsugumi
Uhhh... Alright, if we put all of our thoughts together...
Tomoe
"The same as always" means to change...? But some things must stay the same... Ahhh! This isn't working. We're not on the same page.
Himari
This is hard...
Tsugumi
Maybe we should stop for today. It's getting dark, anyway...
Moca
Out of time, huh~? I don't know, I kinda feel like we're about to figure it out~...
Ran
Hey, tomorrow's a day off, right...? You guys wanna stay at my place?
Himari
What?! Is that okay?!
Ran
Well, I don't wanna end things on this note either. That's only if you guys want to though...

Hmm~... Good question.
Ran

Tomoe
I mean, that's fine, no? This can be nice too, sometimes.
Ran
... Sigh, sure, I guess.
Moca
Mmm~, the sandwiches Papa Ran bought for us are... tayshty~... He has my gratitude~.
Himari
This is a new one for him right? Getting us sandwiches.
Moca
I hope this becomes part of our new "same as always."
Tomoe
If we think about it, a lot of new things have been added, haven't they?
Ran
Are you including that... thing... you do, too?
Moca
Nooo~...
Tomoe
Hey! Of course that's part of it!
Himari
Along with the fact that Ran's dad comes to all of our shows, right?!

C'mon, we don't need to add that!
