Rinko: ...
Arisa: ...
Rinko: Um...
Arisa: Y-yes?
Yukina: Toyama-san, focus more on your abdominal breathing. Use more force in this area of your stomach.
Kasumi: Okay! Suuu, haaah~... Like this?
Rinko: U-um... I suppose we should... start practicing, as well... For our keyboard part... L-let's try our best...
Arisa: Ah, yeah. Let's give it a try.
Rinko: Ummm... Okay, then... Where... should we start first...?
Arisa: That's a good question...
Lisa: Right on, that was fire! You really nailed it, Rimi☆
Rimi: Th-thank you. I want this part to sound cool, so I've been practicing a lot~.
Rinko: (Everyone... is doing so well... I need to do my part too... as the upperclassman...)
Rinko: A-alright, then... I say we take it from the top... and then focus on any tricks parts as they come along...
Arisa: Understood.

Arisa: Phew... H-how was that?
Rinko: G-good... The sound... come through nicely... It was a beautiful performance, in my opinion...
Arisa: Sigh... That's a relief...
Rinko: However... there were some areas... that could use improvement... Try to be careful... when playing the difficult sections...
Arisa: Oh... O-okay... I know what you're referring to... Sorry...
Rinko: Ah, there's no need... to apologize... Let's take it... one step at a time...
Arisa: Alright...

Rinko: Sigh...
Lisa: What's wrong, Rinko? Are you okay?
Sayo: Problems with the joint rehearsal, perhaps?
Rinko: Um... well...
Lisa: You can tell us! Maybe there's something we can do to help.
Rinko: ... Our rehearsal today... didn't go very well... Not as well as yours, Imai-san... Both in playing and in conversation...
Lisa: Hmm, but we're only just starting, right? That, and we don't have much experience practicing with other bands. Don't worry about it.
Sayo: Indeed. The most important is the material itself. How much progress did you make?
Rinko: I had her play through it one time... and then... we reviewed her weak areas... It was... a fairly intense session...
Lisa: Isn't that how a rehearsal should be?
Rinko: But... I was worried that... I may have spent too much time helping Ichigaya-san...
Sayo: Shirokane-san. We are not their instructors. There is no reason to fret over such matters.
Sayo: If anything, we should be focusing on what we ourselves can gain from these rehearsals.
Lisa: How'd things go for you, Sayo? With the guitar part.
Sayo: Although our styles differ, Hanazono-san is a very skilled player. It was a very rewarding experience.
Rinko: What I can gain... for playing...
Sayo: Exactly. That is what is important for you... No, what is important for Roselia. If there is nothing to be gained, then we should put an end to these joint rehearsals.
Lisa: Hold on, Sayo...
Rinko: It's fine... I will... think things over...

Joint Rehearsals - Second Session
 

Rinko: (I couldn't stop thinking about it... and ended up coming early... Maybe I should practice a little... while I wait...)
Arisa: Ah... Rinko-senpai. G-good morning.
Rinko: Ichigaya-san... Good... morning...
Arisa & Rinko: ...
Rinko: (This awkward situation... won't make for a good rehearsal... I need to... take the initiative and do something...)
Rinko: U-um... Ichigaya-san...
Arisa: Y-yes...? What is it...?
Rinko: S-since we're both here... um... do you... do you...
Arisa: Do I...?
Rinko: Do you... have a moment to talk...?

Rinko: Um... Ichigaya-san... Do you like... the keyboard...?
Arisa: Huh? Um...? If I had to choose, then... I guess I like it, yeah.
Arisa: I used to practice the piano and all. I quit when studying for my junior high school entrance exams, though.
Rinko: So... you stopped playing music altogether... around that time...?
Arisa: Yeah, I didn't pick up an instrument again until joining Poppin'Party... Well, more like when I got mixed up with Kasumi.
Arisa: But still, I am happy that I found a reason to start playing again...
Arisa: I do enjoy playing the keyboard, and it's kind of fun to be in a group where everyone plays off one another...
Rinko: Fun...
Rinko: Fufu, I see...
Arisa: Huh? Did I say something weird?
Rinko: Ah, no... I apologize... My reason for being in Roselia is the same as yours... so I was happy to hear you say that...
Arisa: Oh, really? You're already really good at the keyboard, Rinko-senpai, so I figured you joined to polish those skills.
Rinko: It's true that a part of me... wants to improve... but what's most important to me... is playing with Roselia...
Rinko: You see... Being invited by Ako-chan to join Roselia... and being able to play with Yukina-san... Hikawa-san and Imai-san... was such an... enjoyable experience...
Rinko: So I want to improve myself... so we can continue... having fun together...
Arisa: Rinko-senpai...
Rinko: Um... Ichigaya-san... Forgive me.
Arisa: Huh?! Where did that come from?! It's not like you need to apologize or anything...
Rinko: No, I feel like... I spoke out of turn the other day... and ruined the mood... It's not like I'm an instructor or anything...
Arisa: That's not true at all! It was mostly my fault for dropping the ball so hard!
Rinko: No... What I mean is... I believe that... rehearsals should be... a place to have fun.
Rinko: If they're not... then it's easy to lose sight of... why we're even playing the keyboard in the first place...
Arisa: I think I'd like if things were a bit more laidback too... but I can't promise that I'll play perfectly, you know...?
Rinko: That... is no problem at all... That's what rehearsals are for...
Rinko: What would make me happiest is... if we can all have fun... while we train...
Arisa: O-okay! I leave myself in your care. Having said that... I should apologize too.
Rinko: Huh?
Arisa: I feel awful for... making you worry about me.
Rinko: No, that... I, um... am not good at... expressing myself... So if anything... I am the one being a burden on you, yes...?
Arisa: No, I don't feel that way at all...! I'm terrible at speaking to people for the first time. If only I could steal some of Kasumi's optimism...
Rinko: I... completely understand what you mean... I wish I could be more sociable like Imai-san...
Arisa: Nah, it'd be really weird for you to talk like Lisa-san.
Rinko: I... suppose you're right... Fufu... I can't... really see it, either...
Arisa: Then again, it'd be just as weird if I ended up being like Kasumi.
Rinko: Fufufu... Very true.
Arisa: Hahaha. No doubt.

Joint Rehearsal
 

Rinko: That part just now... sounded amazing... It was full of emotion...
Arisa: Yeah, but I feel like this part with the complicated notes isn't being handled well.
Rinko: Um, for that section... you can move your fingers like this...
Arisa: I see...
Lisa: Is it me, or are those two really hitting it off today?
Sayo: They are. It would appear that Shirokane-san's performances are somehow improvised, as well. And if so...
Lisa: Then we don't need to step in and stop the rehearsal?
Sayo: Exactly. If it had looked as though Shirokane-san were being inconvenienced, then... I thought it would be best to at least reduce the time of their joint sessions.
Lisa: But looking at those two now, I don't think there's any reason to worry.
Arisa: Rinko-senpai, one more time, please.
Rinko: Of course, as long as it takes...
