Shirokane Residence
 
Rinko's Room
 
Ako: "Hello~, is this thing on~? Wait, is the video not working?"
Rinko: "Ah, hold on... Give me a second. It's my monitor... How's... this?"
Ako: "Hey hey~, Rin-rin. Can you see me? Can you hear me~?"
Rinko: "Mhm, no problems. I hear you just fine, Ako-chan... And the video is working."
Rinko: "This app is amazing. It's very clear... And on top of that, there's almost no lag... I can't believe we can do everything through video chat now."
Ako: "I was actually told about this by an in-game friend! That this is perfect for playing with others. We'll be able to talk to and see each other!"
Rinko: "Yeah. Okay, so... which dungeon should we do today...?"
Ako: "There's a specific material I'm looking for. Can we go back to the place we just finished? The thing I need is called 'Fire Stone of Knotts'..."
Rinko: "Fire Stone of Knotts... I think... that's in Rogolo Mine. The place that we went to with Yukina-san and the oth-- Ah..."
Ako: "... Oh. Rogolo Mine, huh...?"
Rinko: "I'm sorry, Ako-chan..."
Ako: "D-don't worry about it! I'm totally fine! Now, let's get those materials!"

Rogolo Mine
 
Ako: Nice! Fire Stone of Knotts, dropped! I knew this would be faster with you here. It always is.
Rinko: Really? Well... That's good...
Ako: We kept getting lost the last time we were here, but now that we have the entire map, it's a walk in the park~! Guess we have Yukina-san to thank for wandering around, don't we? Heh, just kidding!
Ako: ...
Rinko: ... Ako-chan...
Ako: ... I wonder what's gonna happen to Roselia...
Rinko: ... Yeah...
Ako: ... Ready to move on?

Rinko: (It's been like this... since we started... We both talk about Roselia without realizing it... Then things get uncomfortable...)
Rinko: (Playing today... isn't quite as fun as it usually is... A bit like... our rehearsal... the other day...)
Ako: ... Hey, Rin-rin.
Rinko: ... What is it, Ako-chan?
Ako: I've been thinking something for a while... Can I ask you about it?
Rinko: Mhm. What's wrong?
Ako: Uhm... Didn't that monster we were fighting... remind you of Yukina-san?
Rinko: Huh?
Rinko: ... Now that you mention it... Yeah... It was cool... and very calm... Those characteristics were kind of similar...
Ako: Right?! I knew you would understand!!
Ako: Like the way it just casually looks away after it attacks! That's totally like her! And since it's an ice-type, I bet it'd be popular with the other monsters!
Ako: While we're on the topic, you remind me of the Silent Dragon, Rin-rin! Really cute, but super strong! That's exactly like you!
Ako: And Lisa-nee is like the Cheer Elf! The way it heals anyone, whether they're an ally or an enemy, is totally the same as her! Obviously, I'd be the Dark Dragon, like how...
Rinko: (I knew... Ako was paying close attention... to the other members of Roselia... These are spot on...)
Rinko: (Even while we're playing... they're all she can talk about...)
Rinko: ... Ako-chan... You really... love Roselia... I see...
Ako: And when the Dark Dragon is forced into a corner, its pitch-black wings will-... Hm? Rin-rin, did you say something?
Rinko: ... No, I didn't. You were saying? It's forced into a corner, and then...?
Ako: Yeah! That's when its wings go from being black to white, and its type changes to--
Rinko: (Ako-chan looks like she has so much fun when she talks about Roselia... I do too... I enjoy myself more than when I would just... play the game...)
Rinko: (I feel the same... about the band as Ako-chan does...)
Rinko: (... It's as I thought. We can't... go on like this... I'll have to... think some more...)
Rinko: (I may not know what it is now... but... I have to figure out what I can do for Roselia. I have to do everything I can... for that purpose...)
Rinko: ... Ako-chan. We should... play as long as we can today.
Rinko: Any materials you need... Let's get them...!
Ako: Huh? I-I'm okay with that, but... you never wanna do that. This is around the time you always stop...
Rinko: When you have the chance to do something... you should do it... and give it everything you've got.
Ako: ... Oh... Yeah, that's right. Got it! We'll collect all the materials we need, right now!
Rinko: Mhm. Let's do our best... You and me, Ako-chan.

The Special Place I Love

CiRCLE - Lobby
 
Rinko: Really? So there are no openings for the studio... I thought so... Understood... Thank you.
Rinko: ...! BanG Dreamer-san...? S-sorry. I wasn't expecting anyone to call out to me, so... you took me by surprise...
Rinko: No... I'm not doing solo practice. Ako-chan and I... are planning to have a rehearsal... I mixed up the time though... and arrived a little early.
Rinko: ... Uhm... I think Ako-chan will tell me when she gets here, so... do you have... a little time to talk until then...?
Rinko: Th-thank you.
Rinko: A short time ago, the mood surrounding Roselia become really bad... Everyone was focusing on and doing their own thing... Ah, but we're okay now...!
Rinko: Ako-chan stormed out during a rehearsal... That was... the saddest I had ever seen her...
Rinko: ... No... That's not something that had ever happened before... And that's when... I spoke up... to Yukina-san...
Rinko: But then going to rehearsal... became more difficult... Ako-chan and I... just played games for a while.
Rinko: Y-you're shocked to hear... that I skipped practice, aren't you? I couldn't believe it either...
Rinko: Playing games during rehearsal time was somewhat... hard to bear. While we were doing that... all we could think of was Roselia.
Rinko: For instance... What does Roselia mean to me...? What is something... I can do for the band...? Things like that...
Rinko: And because of those feelings... we couldn't really... focus much on what we were doing.
Rinko: And despite all the thinking... We still didn't know what to do...
Rinko: ... After some time passed, Ako-chan finally said we should make new outfits. That we should do the things that we're able to do.
Rinko: ... After some time passed, Ako-chan finally said we should make new outfits. That we should do the things that we're able to do.
Rinko: And it wasn't only about matching our image... I used the things I've learned from performing with the band... I considered our on-stage mannerisms, and other things like that.
Rinko: For example, with Ako-chan's outfit, I made the sleeves shorter... so they don't get in the way... when she does a crossover to hit the hi-hat...
Rinko: Ako-chan's wasn't the only one... I thought hard for all of them... Hikawa-san's was especially difficult...
Rinko: Huh...? Does my smiling... make me look that happy...?
Rinko: Of course. Roselia is very... precious to me. It's a place I treasure... A place I love.
Rinko: ...! Th-that scared me... I have a phone call... from Ako-chan...
Rinko: Sorry, do you mind if I take this...? Thank you.
Rinko: ... Hello, Ako-chan? Yes, I'm already at the studio... Huh?
Rinko: You ran into Imai-san on your way here...? She's coming too...? Oh, Hikawa-san and Yukina-san are as well...?
Rinko: Th-that means... it's going to be the usual... A Roselia rehearsal...
Rinko: Mhm, mhm... Okay. I'll be waiting... near the reception area since you're almost here. Mhm... Okay, see you soon...
Rinko: ... It turns out... we're going to have a normal band rehearsal...
Rinko: ... Yes, I'll do my best.
Rinko: BanG Dreamer-san, we'll come to you... if we need anything, okay?
