Our Music is the Best

Roselia and Afterglow practice together. Will they fight over their musical differences?!

CiRCLE - Lobby
 
Marina icon Marina:
Ah, BanG Dreamer-san! Got a minute? How are the event preparations going?
Marina icon Marina:
Yeah? Sounds good! It looks like the bands are starting joint practices already, on Kasumi-chan's recommendation.
Marina icon Marina:
Today we have... Roselia and Afterglow rehearsing together, I think it was.
Marina icon Marina:
They already clashed once the very first time they met... I hope they'll be okay today...


CiRCLE - Studio
 
Ran (icon) Ran:
I keep telling you, there's degrees to this whole merit system of yours.
Yukina (icon) Yukina:
... And I keep telling you, I'm not saying you are not good performers. I don't know how many times...
Lisa (icon) Lisa:
Ahh~... It's only been 10 minutes and they're fighting...
Moca (icon) Moca:
They're already on round three by my count~...
Tsugumi (icon) Tsugumi:
Wh-what should we do~? We have to stop them...
Tomoe (icon) Tomoe:
Calm down, both of you. We're supposed to be practicing together today...
Sayo (icon) Sayo:
We're completely calm. If your vocalist would just relax and listen to what we're saying, it wouldn't come to this...
Tomoe (icon) Tomoe:
... So you're saying this is all Ran's fault?
Himari (icon) Himari:
Uh-oh...
Moca (icon) Moca:
No way Tomo-chin lets this one go~.
Ran (icon) Ran:
We have the best sound, no matter what anyone else says. Anyone caught up on "skill" just doesn't understand rock...
Sayo (icon) Sayo:
It all sounds to me like you're jealous you don't have the skill in the first place.
Lisa (icon) Lisa:
Okay okay okay! That's enough! Yukina, Ran, just stop it! You too, Sayo! Tomoe!
Tomoe (icon) Tomoe:
... Sorry.
Lisa (icon) Lisa:
Roselia and Afterglow have completely different goals, it's true. But what good does it do anyone fighting over it?
Ran (icon) Ran:
Yeah, well, they started-
Lisa (icon) Lisa:
None of that either, thank you! They started it, he said she said, enough!
Lisa (icon) Lisa:
I mean, we haven't even all performed for each other yet. We should at least properly introduce ourselves first!
Sayo (icon) Sayo:
... She's right. Things would be a lot easier if you just heard us play.
Tomoe (icon) Tomoe:
I agree. Music doesn't lie. Let's hear a song, then.
Tsugumi (icon) Tsugumi:
Amazing...
Himari (icon) Himari:
Yeah... It really was, just... amazing...
Yukina (icon) Yukina:
Well? How was our performance?
Moca (icon) Moca:
It was crazy cool~. I got goosebumps. Right, Ran?
Ran (icon) Ran:
... It wasn't bad, I guess.
Moca (icon) Moca:
Let me translate~. She said, "it was incredible! I think I'm going to cry^!"
Ran (icon) Ran:
Hey! I did not say that at all.
Lisa (icon) Lisa:
Ahaha~, Ran's not one for showing her feelings then, huh. Just like our Yukina, I guess. We might actually have more in common than we thought.
Yukina (icon) Yukina:
That's... I'm not...
Ako (icon) Ako:
Sis~! How was my drumming?
Tomoe (icon) Tomoe:
It was great, Ako! You've gotten a lot better again, huh? Good job.
Ako (icon) Ako:
Really?! Hehehe... By the divine melodic power of the musical god that resides within me, it... it was, erm... it was easy!
Tomoe (icon) Tomoe:
Hahaha. I'm sure it was. Shirokane-san, is it? Thanks for always hanging out with Ako.
Rinko (icon) Rinko:
... Ah... I... Umm...
Ako (icon) Ako:
Rin-rin's always helping me out with stuff! I can count on her for anything and everything!
Tomoe (icon) Tomoe:
Is that so? Well aren't you glad you found such great band members, then.
Sayo (icon) Sayo:
... So that's Udagawa-san's sister.
Tsugumi (icon) Tsugumi:
O-oh, yeah! They're really close, too. I'm kind of envious, really, being an only child...
Tsugumi (icon) Tsugumi:
Sometimes I wish I had an older sister like Tomoe-chan.
Sayo (icon) Sayo:
... I suppose the sibling ideal is to look out for each other, support each other, help each other.
Sayo (icon) Sayo:
(If only Hina and I were more like that...)
Yukina (icon) Yukina:
We are only aiming for the very top. We'll do whatever it takes to-
Ran (icon) Ran:
How many times have I got to say it? Our music is the best already, bar none.
Moca (icon) Moca:
What are you getting all angry for, Ran~? You just heard them play, it was cool, right? Let them be them, and us be us.
Ran (icon) Ran:
... I suppose...
Lisa (icon) Lisa:
Ahaha. I guess we really are similar after all, huh.
Himari (icon) Himari:
Do you think?
Lisa (icon) Lisa:
We all take pride in our music being the very best. We won't let anyone else change our minds. Right?
Lisa (icon) Lisa:
I guess it's like a belief, almost? We're all performing music on our own beliefs, aren't we?
Tomoe (icon) Tomoe:
That would explain why we keep getting into fights.
Sayo (icon) Sayo:
I suppose it would...
Lisa (icon) Lisa:
People who share that same way of thinking are always going to rub each other up the wrong way.
Lisa (icon) Lisa:
So I think this joint practice is the perfect chance for us to get over all that.
Tsugumi (icon) Tsugumi:
Yeah... she's right! I already feel like you've all made such an impact on me...!
Ran (icon) Ran:
They sure are impactful. ... Anyway, we can't keep going on like this only having heard Roselia perform. It's time for us to play.
Tomoe (icon) Tomoe:
Okay. Minato-san, I want you to really listen to our performance here. Please?
Yukina (icon) Yukina:
... Oh I will.
Lisa (icon) Lisa:
Y'know, I think we're all gonna be okay after all! ... With the fighting kept to a minimum, of course.
