Main Story Season 1 Chapter 7
You know each other?

Pastel*Palettes and Hello, Happy World! practice together. What is revealed?

CiRCLE - Lobby
 
Aya (icon) Aya:
Oh no! I can't be late, not for our joint practice... I have to hurry...!
Aya (icon) Aya:
Hya~?! Was that noise... from the studio...?! What is going on in there?!


CiRCLE - Studio
 
Aya (icon) Aya:
I heard a noise, what's going-
Maya (icon) Maya:
A-Aya-san~! It's not going great...
Aya (icon) Aya:
Wh-what happened?!
Kanon (icon) Kanon:
I... I-I'm sorry~~!!
Kanon (icon) Kanon:
I thought... maybe the Pastel*Palettes girls could teach us about... performing professionally, but...
Kokoro (icon) Kokoro:
Look, look! I can move a lot better than that~!
Kaoru (icon) Kaoru:
Fufu... Kokoro, your movements are as fluid and beautiful as ever. Just like the butterfly... how fleeting.
Hina (icon) Hina:
Ahaha! You're amazing, Kokoro-chan! I wonder if I can do cartwheels, too.
Eve (icon) Eve:
Ooh! Those moves... Kokoro-san, are you... a ninja?!
Kanon (icon) Kanon:
I'm sorry, I know I should stop them, but... I-I just can't get back control~...
Chisato (icon) Chisato:
You don't need to apologize, Kanon. Fufu, you Hello, Happy World! girls are very energetic.
Kaoru (icon) Kaoru:
Oh...? Is this Chisato I see before me? You are looking as radiant as ever, my dear princess. Have you been well?
Misaki (icon) Misaki:
Huh? Do you two know each other?
Chisato (icon) Chisato:
... I suppose we do, yes.
Kaoru (icon) Kaoru:
Our parents are great friends, you see. But dear Chisato has always been so cold... The two of us are performers, we should be seeking to better one another!
Chisato (icon) Chisato:
I've been on TV and in movies. You're a stage actor. I'm not quite sure we exactly the same, are we?
Misaki (icon) Misaki:
Kaoru-san just got very politely served, and I'll bet anything she didn't even notice.
Hagumi (icon) Hagumi:
So when are we gonna start rehearsing? I just can't wait to get started!
Misaki (icon) Misaki:
Grr... I guess there's only one thing for it...
Michelle (icon) Michelle:
Okay everyone, gather up~!
Kokoro (icon) Kokoro:
Ah! Michelle! You finally came!
Michelle (icon) Michelle:
We're here to learn all about professionalism from Pastel*Palettes today, so let's all be on our best behavior~.
Kokoro (icon) Kokoro:
She's right! We should hear what these Palette People or whatever have to say.
Maya (icon) Maya:
Wait... What exactly is going on right now?
Aya (icon) Aya:
I have no idea...
Chisato (icon) Chisato:
Leaving aside this incredibly bizarre situation for a moment...
Chisato (icon) Chisato:
Could you tell us first what specifically about professional performances you want us to teach you?
Kokoro (icon) Kokoro:
You're all idols, right? I want to know what it's like to perform as professionals like that! Big, booming performances!
Aya (icon) Aya:
B-booming...? I get the feeling you're a lot like our Hina-chan, Kokoro-chan.
Michelle (icon) Michelle:
I'm sorry, I don't think we're explaining it well. Watching you play at the meeting the other day, I think it hit us how well put-together your performance is.
Kanon (icon) Kanon:
So, umh... We'd like to know what we can do to reach that level...
Maya (icon) Maya:
I remember our instructor always used to tell us to "have an image in mind" in classes.
Hagumi (icon) Hagumi:
An image?
Maya (icon) Maya:
Picture yourself, or the whole band, up on stage. What are you doing? How are you performing? What is everyone around you thinking?
Maya (icon) Maya:
You always keep an image of the best possible you. If you hold on to that ideal, you'll find yourself getting closer and closer to it as you practice.
Hagumi (icon) Hagumi:
My softball coach told me the same kinda thing once! He called it visualization, I think?
Aya (icon) Aya:
That's it! They use the same techniques in sports. Picture the main event as you go through practice, and you'll naturally start to close in on it.
Chisato (icon) Chisato:
The most important thing is to always keep the stage somewhere in your mind.
Michelle (icon) Michelle:
I see... We never know exactly how or when our blonde bomb here's gonna go off on stage, so I guess it would be good to get an image of it ahead of time...
Kokoro (icon) Kokoro:
A bomb...?! Someone call the authorities! We have to get rid of it!
Michelle (icon) Michelle:
Trust me, I know.
Hagumi (icon) Hagumi:
So music and sports do have something in common after all! I've always been pretty good at this visualization stuff, y'know!
Chisato (icon) Chisato:
But when I watch you all play, that element of not knowing what'll happen next feels like part of the appeal, to be honest. Our way isn't necessarily the right one.
Eve (icon) Eve:
Your show was like one big jack-in-the-box! Full of surprises and so much fun!
Hina (icon) Hina:
Yeah, I really, really loved it too!
Kanon (icon) Kanon:
B-but hearing about this visualization has really helped, I think...! It's definitely a very professional piece of advice...
Kaoru (icon) Kaoru:
How very like dear Chisato.
Chisato (icon) Chisato:
Thanks. I'm sure as a "fellow performer" you're always visualizing the stage too, right?
Kaoru (icon) Kaoru:
Y-yes, I mean... Of course...
Michelle (icon) Michelle:
I don't think I've ever seen Kaoru-san flustered before...
Aya (icon) Aya:
I know! I could help you all think of your own special poses, if you'd like! Something to use when you introduce yourselves on stage!
Kokoro (icon) Kokoro:
A special pose? Like what? I want to know!
Aya (icon) Aya:
We are... Hello, Happy World! Nice to see you all♪
All:
......
Chisato (icon) Chisato:
... Like I say, every band has its own personality. Not everything we do is necessarily correct.
Aya (icon) Aya:
Aww~, Chisato-chan! Don't be so mean~!!
Aya (icon) Aya:
Ah, BanG Dreamer-san! Hello. We just had a joint rehearsal together with Hello, Happy World! At one point, Kokoro-chan said...
Aya (icon) Aya:
... Isn't that funny~? But I think we all got a little bit closer today, and the Hello, Happy World! girls said they learned a lot from us, too! I was so happy!
Aya (icon) Aya:
Being able to be a role model for someone, having an influence on their lives... It's something I would love to do.... Hehehe.
Aya (icon) Aya:
Anyway, what is it you're doing here, BanG Dreamer-san? Ah! Are they the posters for our event? Wow~, they're amazing!
Aya (icon) Aya:
I'll help you put them up! I'm actually very good at this kind of thing, you know! We all have to work together to make this event go perfectly well!
