Happy News

Kokoro gathers the Hello, Happy World! members to make a wonderful announcement...

Tsurumaki Residence
 


Kokoro: Everybody's here! It's time for a Hello, Happy World! Meeting!
Hagumi: All right! What kinda meeting are we having today, Kokoron?
Kaoru: Fufu, since you have summoned us here, I suspect you have some fleeting tidings for us?
Kanon: I-I hope it is good news...
Misaki: We can't help but worry when you tell us to come quickly because you have some "super happy news..."
Kokoro: Oh, why's that?
Misaki: Why...? Because most of the time it's something crazy.
Misaki: Last time you called us together like this, you suddenly said you wanted to go mountaineering and took us somewhere deep in the mountains.
Kanon: And the time before that, you organized a fireworks festival, just so we could do fireworks together...
Kaoru & Hagumi: That was amusing.
That was fun!
Misaki: It's a bit late to say this now, but that was not normal.
Kanon: A-ahaha. But everyone who came enjoyed themselves, so I don't think it was so bad...
Misaki: That was its one saving grace...
Hagumi: Anyway~! What's your news, Kokoron?
Kokoro: Well you see, we've been invited to a festival!
Misaki & Kanon: A f-festival...?
Kokoro: Yeah, they want us to perform there!
Hagumi: Wow! That's amazing, Kokoron! It'll be our first time playing at a festival!
Kaoru: We shall transform this jolly festival into something even more vivacious with our performance... Fufu, what an appropriate invitation for us.
Kanon: Y-yes, I think it will be fun.
Misaki: ...
Kanon: ...? Misaki-chan?
Misaki: Ah, sorry. You have actual news, so it caught me off guard.
Misaki: Where did this request even come from?
Kokoro: From my friend, Smiley Nick!
Misaki: Your friend...?
Kanon: Smiley Nick...?
Hagumi: He sounds like a real happy dude!
Kaoru: And I suspect this gentleman's smile is undeniably charming.
Kanon: Wh-who is that...? We haven't met him before, right?
Misaki: I'm not sure either. Judging by his name, I'm guessing he's from the neighborhood association...?
Hagumi: He invited us because we've been working so hard with our band activities!
Kaoru: As the Smile Patrol, we have protected many a smile, after all.
Misaki: Ahhh, you mean our non-musical band activities.
Misaki: Cleaning the streets, giving directions, playing with children...
Misaki: We really do quite a lot...
Kanon: But I'm sure we were invited to this festival because of everything we have done.
Kanon: We have had more chances to talk to the townsfolk, so many of them must know about us now.
Misaki: When I think of it like that, those activities might have been more meaningful than I thought...
Kokoro: Yes, protecting the smiles of others is very meaningful!
Hagumi: Yeah, yeah! I was so happy to see all sorts of people smiling!
Misaki: Well, I guess that's good...
Misaki: I mean, I was wondering what outrageous idea you had, but it turned out to be an invitation to play at a festival. What a relief.
Kanon: If we're performing at a festival... Ah, perhaps I'll invite my family.
Hagumi: I think that's a really great idea! I'll invite Mom and Dad, and my big brother too!
Kaoru: Fufu, this concert is going to be rather convivial. Ah~, how fleeting...
Kokoro: Let's do our best to make every single person smile!
Hagumi, Kaoru, Kanon & Misaki: Yeah!

Not What I Was Expecting!

An unfamiliar townscape and sky lie before the girls' eyes. Where on earth are they...?

2 Weeks Later
 


Kanon & Misaki: ...
Kanon: I know this is where the festival is meant to be, but where are we exactly...? I thought it would just be a local festival...
Misaki: Yes. I thought so too until she mentioned getting here by private jet...
Kokoro: What's wrong, you two? Why are you both pulling faces like you mixed up the sugar and the salt?
Misaki: Why do you think...? More importantly, where are we?
Misaki: This is definitely not Japan, and I can definitely hear some strange language flying around...!
Kokoro: Of course! This is the Kingdom of Happinelle!
Kanon: H-Happinelle...?
Hagumi: It's not a very well-known country, right? I don't think I've ever heard of it before!
Kaoru: The Kingdom of Happinelle... Coincidentally, I have seen a play that was set in Happinelle. I believe it is a small country in Europe.
Kanon: Um, Kokoro-chan? Is the festival we're performing at a Happinellian festival...?
Kokoro: Yeah, apparently it's been almost 1,000 years since the founding of Happinelle!
Kokoro: It's gonna be super-duper festive, so they asked us to make our performance really fun too!
Misaki: Wait, so you mean it's a national festival?!
Kanon: Doesn't that mean it's quite an important one...?
Kokoro: Anyway, let's go greet them!
Hagumi: Greet who? And where are we going?
Kokoro: To Smiley Nick's house! He's the one who invited us.
Misaki: Ahh, the man I thought was from the neighborhood association...
Kanon: B-by the looks of things, he's most likely not from the neighborhood association...
Happinelle Castle - Foyer
 
Kokoro: Guys, this is Smiley Nick's house!
Hagumi: Whoa, It's so huge! It's even bigger than your house, Kokoron!
Kaoru: This Smiley Nick appears to have an awfully large family. There are innumerable people here to greet us.
Kanon & Misaki: ...
Kanon: Misaki-chan, do you think these people are all Smiley Nick's family members...?
Misaki: They look more like guards to me... And this whole place seems like a castle, no matter how you look at it...
Misaki: Wh-what?! What's going on?!
Kanon: Fue, the people who look like guards are playing their trumpets...!
Kokoro: Ah! Smiley Nick! We've arrived in Happinelle!
???: Welcome to my humble abode, Kokoro-chan and friends. I have been waiting patiently for your arrival.
Kanon: L-look... on top of Smiley Nick's head...
Misaki: I-is that a...?
Kaoru: Crown...?
Hagumi: What?! Is Smiley Nick a king or something?!
Nicholas: At your service. I am King Nicholas the fourteenth, ruler of this fair kingdom. Pleased to make your acquaintance, friends of Kokoro-chan.
Kanon & Misaki: ...
Misaki: A lot of things have shocked me since I met Kokoro, and now there's finally a royal in the mix...
Kanon: Kokoro-chan, you're friends with a king...?
Kokoro: Yeah, he's a family friend that's been coming to my birthday parties since I was little!
Nicholas: As a country, we owe a great deal to Kokoro-chan's father.
Misaki: How on earth does the Tsurumaki family have influence over a whole countr- Wait...
Misaki: Huh? Was the king just speaking Japanese...?
Nicholas: Yes, my mother was born in Japan. The Kingdom of Happinelle has deep ties with Japan.
Nicholas: I am grateful for your cooperation with the Happinelle Millenary Festival. I am looking forward to hearing your wonderful music.
Kanon: W-we'll do our best...
Nicholas: Ahaha, no need to be so nervous... H-hm?!
Kanon: Wh-what's wrong?
Nicholas: Y-you...
Kanon: M-me...?
Minister: Your Majesty, I apologize for the interruption, but it is about time-
Nicholas: Yes, I know. I'm afraid I have to leave you here. There is one week until the Millenary Festival. Until then, please think of this castle as your home.
Nicholas: If you have any problems, feel free to consult any of the castle's attendants. And do not fret, most of them are familiar with the Japanese language.
Kokoro: Okay, thank you, Smiley Nick!
Hagumi: I've never stayed in a castle before! We're gonna have so much fun. Right, Kaoru-kun?
Kaoru: Yes. Truth be told, this is also my first time sojourning in a castle. I feel like we will have a fleeting time here.
Kanon: ...
Misaki: ...? Kanon-san? What's wrong?
Kanon: Ah, well, I thought the king was about to say something back there...
Misaki: Yeah, he did look a little startled when he saw you. If it's bothering you, why don't you ask him about it later?
Kanon: Yes, I suppose I could. Still, I wonder why he did that...

Smile Connection! Event Story Chapter 3
A Night in Happinelle

Beneath the myriad of twinkling stars in the night sky of the foreign land, the discussion turns to the Happinelle Millenary Festival.

Happinelle Castle - Guest Quarters
 


Hagumi: Whoa! This is amazing!
Hagumi: This is our room?! It's so big and shiny~!
Kaoru: It appears they have prepared a room for us with adequate space for rehearsals. It is also large enough for us all to comfortably stay in.
Kanon: We're all staying in one room and practicing together... It's kind of like the training camp we did last summer.
Misaki: It really is. Although I think it's unheard of to have training camp in a castle.
Hagumi: It would have been nice if Michelle could stay with us too~.
Misaki: Ahh, Michelle said she was busy as usual, but she might come later.
Kaoru: I suppose the hero does always show up late. How genuinely Michelle that is.
Kokoro: Guys, over here! You can see the stars from the balcony!
Hagumi: Wow! The stars look so pretty here!
Kokoro: Yes, I can even see the Hello, Happy World! constellation!
Kanon: The Hello, Happy World! constellation?
Kokoro: Look, over there! That round cluster is Hagumi, and the one twinkling to the rhythm is Kanon!
Kokoro: All those small sparkling stars are Kaoru! And the really big shiny one is Michelle!
Misaki: That one watching over all the stars from a distance is me, right?
Kaoru: Essentially, we are the guardians of smiles in the night sky... What a remarkably endearing constellation.
Kanon: Oh? There aren't enough stars, though. Which one are you, Kokoro-chan?
Kokoro: I'm a shooting star! Misaki told me I'm like a shooting star racing around the night sky!
Hagumi: A shooting star~! Ahaha, that's just like you, Kokoron!
Misaki: Well, it's because you can't sit still.
Misaki: Anyhow, we'd better do some research now... Umm, where's my phone...?
Kaoru: Research? Of what kind?
Misaki: About the Millenary Festival. None of you know what kind of festival it is, right?
Misaki: I hope they have an article on it in Japanese... Ah, there's something about it on this news site.
Kanon: I-I wonder what kind of atmosphere the festival will have...
Misaki: Umm, according to this...
Misaki: "Prime ministers and royalty from all around the world have been invited to the Happinelle Millenary Festival. It is expected that the festival will attract around 100,000 visitors."
Misaki: "Out of the many events going to be held at the festival, one stands out among the crowd. A performance by a Japanese band, invited by the King of Happinelle himself..."
Misaki: Hm? A Japanese band...?
Kanon: D-do they mean- Ah, there's a comment from the king. Umm...
Kanon: "I shall be keeping their name a secret, but I have no doubts that this band will liven up the festival!"
Kanon: "Their performance will bring happiness and smiles to the people... Please pay close attention to them!"
Misaki: Th-that darn king, what does he think he's doing...?!
Kanon: Fue, he set the hurdle so high...!
Kaoru: Fufu, this is turning out to be a thrilling, grand stage for Hello, Happy World!
Hagumi: Sounds like it's gonna be so much fun!
Kokoro: Of course it will be! It's going to be our first festival show, after all!
Misaki: Why aren't you all more nervous?
Kanon: They don't look any different from how they usually do before a show...
Hagumi: What? Well, a show is a show, right?
Kaoru: Regardless of how big or small a concert may be, our goal remains the same.
Kokoro: Yeah, we're going to put on a show that brings out everybody's wonderful smiles!
Misaki: I'm not sure if I should be amazed or worried...
Kanon: ... Oh? There's more written here.
Kanon: "A great meteor shower is predicted to pass through the skies of Happinelle on the day of the festival. Be sure to keep an eye out for it."
Kokoro: A meteor shower! That sounds exciting!
Kaoru: According to this article, it will be the first meteor shower in 1,000 years.
Hagumi: Wow! There's so much going on!
Kokoro: We'll be able to perform at the festival and see a meteor shower. Seems like we're going to have a really fun day!
Misaki: All I'll have is anxiety...
Kanon: A-ahaha...

Misaki: Connect this here and... the equipment is ready...!
Hagumi: The instruments are ready too, Mii-kun!
Kaoru: Yes, everything has come together perfectly. Now we may practice whenever our hearts desire.
Misaki: All right, we don't have much time before the festival, so we have to prepare ourselves properly. Now, let's-
Kokoro: Let's go and explore Happinelle!
Hagumi & Kaoru: Okay!
Misaki: Hold it right there! You can clearly see we're getting ready for practice, right?!
Misaki: And there's nothing "okay" about that, Hagumi, Kaoru-san.
Hagumi: What?! But it looks like so much fun!
Kaoru: This city and its festival will be our stage... By feeling its air on our skin, we will be able to give a marvelous performance... Kokoro's suggestion made me think such thoughts.
Misaki: No, I'm pretty sure you just wanted to go out and have fun...
Kokoro: Don't you want to explore the city, Misaki?
Misaki: It doesn't matter whether I do or not. We have more important things to worry about.
Misaki: Just thinking about a performance on this scale makes my head spin~...
Kokoro: Hmm, but we haven't even seen the city yet.
Hagumi: We did come straight to the castle after we arrived.
Kaoru: How about it, Misaki? Let us take a moment to explore the-
Misaki: We don't have a moment!
Misaki: Ugh~, Kanon-san, what should we do? These guys are definitely going to go out...
Misaki: Huh? She's not here. Where's Kanon-san?
Kokoro: That's weird, she was here when we ate lunch in the castle's banquet hall.
Misaki: Do you think she got separated from us on the way back to our room...?!
Kaoru: She was peering around at the castle rather curiously. Perhaps she lost sight of us in her trance.
Hagumi: Oh no! Kano-chan-senpai is lost!
Kokoro: That Kanon. It's not very fair of her to start exploring without us!
Misaki: She's not exploring!
Happinelle Castle - Foyer
 


Kanon: Wh-where am I...?
Kanon: Ngh, is anybody there~? I-I'm lost~...
???: ...? Japanese? Excuse me, are you perchance one of our Japanese guests...?
Kanon: Y-yes! I just arrived yesterday and-
???: ...?!
Kanon: Huh?!
???: ...
Kanon: ...
???: Excuse me. I lost my composure for a moment there. You are one of our guests from Japan, correct...?
Kanon: Y-yes, that's right. I'm sorry for getting such a fright as well.
Kanon: I've never met someone who looks just like me before...
???: Nor have I. It was quite the shock.
Kokoro: Kanon!
Kanon: Ah, Kokoro-chan...
???: ...
Hagumi, Kaoru & Misaki: ...!
Hagumi: Wh-what's going on?! There are two of Kano-chan-senpai!
Kaoru: I-in her short absence, our Kanon has been duplicated...
Kokoro: That's amazing! How'd you do it?
Kanon: I-I can't duplicate myself~...
Misaki: What do you guys even think Kanon-san is...?
Misaki: Erm, this person is from the castle, isn't she?
Kanon: Y-yes. I got lost, and then she called out to help me.
Kanon: U-um, thank you very much. I was worried when I lost my way, so your help was such a relief.
???: Ah, not to worry. I am glad you have found your friends...
???: I have heard about you all from my father. Please enjoy your stay in the castle until the festival.
Kaoru: Father...?
Hagumi: Does your dad live here too?
???: ...? Yes, I was told you met with my father, the king, yesterday...
Kokoro: Yes, we did meet Smiley Nick yesterday!
Misaki: Huh? W-wait! Did she just call the king her father...?
Hagumi & Kaoru: Which means...
Kanon: A-are you... the princess of this country?
Nicolina: Y-yes. I am Nicolina, Princess of the Kingdom of Happinelle...

Chapter 5[]

Smile Connection! Event Story Chapter 5
Nicolina

Rumor has it that nobody has ever seen Nicolina smile. How do Kokoro and the others react...?

Happinelle Castle - Guest Quarters
 


Kanon: Fue, that was quite the surprise~...
Kaoru: Who would have thought that we would encounter a genuine princess in that manner...
Hagumi: And she looked exactly like Kano-chan-senpai! I was so shocked!
Misaki: No wonder the king looked so surprised when he saw you, Kanon-san...
Hagumi: Even Kokoron got a fright!
Kokoro: I did. At first, I was shocked because I thought Kanon had been duplicated.
Kokoro: But if you look at them closely, I feel like there are quite a few differences.
Misaki: Huh? Really? They looked so alike, I don't think I'd be able to tell the difference if they were wearing the same clothes...
Kokoro: If anything, I think Nicolina is more like the old Kanon, from when we first met her.
Kanon: The old me...?
Kokoro: You were always worried about something and would scrunch up your face like you had a tummy ache.
Kanon: W-was I really like that...?
Kokoro: Yeah, I feel like Nicolina is similar to how you were back then.
Hagumi: Hmm, a tummy ache face, huh? Now that you mention it, you might be right.
Hagumi: That princess did seem a little down in the dumps, didn't she...?
Kanon: She seemed more composed than I am, so maybe it just looked that way...
Kaoru: ... No, it appears that is not the case.
Misaki: It appears...? Do you know something, Kaoru-san?
Kaoru: After dinner, I engaged in a conversation with one of the maids. It was there that the topic of Nicolina arose.
Kaoru: It appears that no one has ever seen the princess smile.
Kanon: Really...?
Kaoru: I'm afraid so. This also includes the maids who have been employed here since she was a child.
Kokoro: Do you think Nicolina forgot how to smile?
Hagumi: But she lives in this huge castle, and she's surrounded by all the nice staff~...
Kaoru: Perhaps it is precisely because she is always in this castle.
Misaki: ...? What do you mean?
Kaoru: I heard that the princess was in poor health as a child, and has thus spent her days inside this castle. Despite having entirely recovered, it appears she still does not leave the premises.
Kaoru: Of course, the king and the castle folk all wish for her to lead an enjoyable life now that she is well...
Misaki: So she's been in this castle her whole life...
Hagumi: I wonder why she doesn't go out even though she's all better...
Kanon: I think I might understand how she feels...
Kokoro: You do, Kanon?
Kanon: I think she must be afraid. She only knows the inside of this castle, so she must be scared of seeing and doing things she's never experienced before.
Misaki: Ahh, I think I know the feeling... So she's not a captive princess, but rather a shut-in princess.
Kokoro: In that case, we should show her all the fun stuff the world has to offer!
Kokoro: She's too scared to go outside on her own, but I'm sure she'd be fine if we went with her!
Misaki: Ah, here we go... You're always poking your nose into other people's business...
Kanon: But if we could be of some assistance, I'd like to help bring out her smile.
Misaki: You too, Kanon-san...?
Kanon: You said she is like the old me.
Kanon: In my case, I think I was only able to overcome my nerves because I had Kokoro-chan and Hello, Happy World!
Kanon: That's why I think Nicolina-san will be able to change if she has some people like that...
Kokoro: Mmm! That sounds really nice, Kanon!
Kaoru: It was fate that brought us together in this land of Happinelle. Let us put an exquisite smile on the princess' face.
Hagumi: Yeah! We want her to enjoy the festival with a smile, after all!
Misaki: Wait, but what about preparing for our show?
Kaoru: Fufu, are you opposed to this, Misaki?
Misaki: ... Well, I'm also a member of Hello, Happy World! I know I can't stop you, so I might as well join in.
Kokoro: Okay, it's decided then! Let's begin Operation Make Nicolina Smile!
Kanon: But how will we get Nicolina-san outside of the castle?
Misaki: ... Well, I'm also a member of Hello, Happy World! I know I can't stop you, so I might as well join in.
Hagumi: Hmm... What if we cover her eyes and take her out?
Kaoru: I see. So we would essentially be escorting her to the outside world before she has the chance to feel frightened.
Kokoro: Wow, Hagumi! Nice idea!
Kanon: U-umm, I'm not too sure about that...
Misaki: I feel like that would just shock her...
Kokoro: Oh, but it might work out better than we think!
Kokoro: Nicolina is scared of the outside world, but she doesn't even know anything about it!
Hagumi: Yeah, yeah! First, she needs to see the world for herself so she can learn more about it!
Kaoru: If we do not succeed, then we simply must concoct another method. But first, we must try.
Misaki: I-I don't know about this...

A Princess and Her Friends

The group set out to make Nicolina smile by taking her out into town.

The Next Day
 
Happinelle - Castle Town
 


Kokoro: Mmm~! The weather is so nice! It's the perfect day to go out!
Hagumi: Look, look! Everybody is getting ready for the festival! It's so busy!
Nicolina: E-excuse me, but why am I here...?
Kokoro: Why? To find something that will make you smile, of course!
Nicolina: Smile...? I see you have heard about me from the castle staff...
Nicolina: Erm, I appreciate you all trying to cheer me up, but... I have never left the castle grounds before...
Kokoro: But there's nothing that can make you smile inside of the castle, right? So we have to go somewhere that will make you smile!
Kokoro: If youu don't smile, you'll feel worse and worse, and then you'll just be sad, Nicolina.
Misaki: Leave the princess be!
Kaoru: Nicolina, do you detest the outside world?
Nicolina: Not exactly. I just feel like the world outside of the castle is so different...
Nicolina: For a long time now, I have stared out at the city from my window and wondered what could possibly be out there...
Nicolina: But I am afraid of going somewhere I am unfamiliar with... And I know nothing of what is out there...
Kanon: It is quite scary going somewhere new for the first time. But we will be right there beside you.
Kanon: Today, we will try our best to find something you will enjoy, Nicolina-san.
Nicolina: You are all too kind...
Hagumi: Nico-rin! Nico-rin! I found something awesome!
Nicolina: Oh? Erm, what is that...?
Hagumi: Yeah! It's a Happinelle croquette! I found a place selling them!
Hagumi: My family runs a meat shop and we sell croquettes! So I just have to compare them!
Hagumi: Eat one with me, Nico-rin! They're fresh out the fryer, so I bet they'll be really yummy!
Nicolina: Thank you... Erm, may I ask why you sell croquettes at a meat store?
Nicolina: If I'm not mistaken, croquettes are made out of potatoes...
Hagumi: ...!
Hagumi: I've never thought about that before... They do have meat in them, but it's mostly potato...
Hagumi: But they're our most popular product... Hmm, I'll have to ask my dad when I get back to Japan!
Hagumi: You're amazing, Nico-rin! I never thought I'd make this kind of discovery in another country!
Nicolina: O-oh... By the way, what is this "Nico-rin" you speak of...?
Hagumi: It's a nickname for you! When you become friends with someone, it's best to call 'em by a nickname!
Hagumi: Oh? Do you not like Nico-rin? Then what about Nicocchi?
Misaki: Don't you think it's rude to give a princess a nickname...?
Nicolina: Ah, no, I am happy to receive a nickname. No one has called me by one before...
Kaoru: ... My, what a peculiar statue that is in the middle of the square.
Nicolina: Yes, that statue commemorates the founding of our nation.
Kaoru: Is that so?
Nicolina: There is a legend that says, one thousand years ago, when this country was formed, a rain of stars poured down from the sky...
Nicolina: It is said that this gift from the heavens brought along many things with it.
Nicolina: Compassion, altruism, hope... Thanks to these gifts from the heavens, Happinelle became a kind country.
Kanon: I didn't know there was a legend like that...
Nicolina: M-my apologies. I quite like this story, but it is rather dull, isn't it?
Kanon: No, not at all. I would love to hear more of your stories, Nicolina-san.
Kaoru: My, what a riveting legend. I feel pressure in my chest from such fleetingness...
Nicolina: ...
Kanon: What's wrong, Nicolina-san?
Nicolina: Well, it is my first time talking with others like this...
Nicolina: It is quite pleasing, isn't it? Having someone listen to you and enjoy what you have to say...
Nicolina: I have always watched girls my age do so from out of my window.
Nicolina: I thought it would be nice if I had someone I could talk to in this manner...
Kanon: I see. So you've been wanting a friend?
Kokoro: Okay, so that means we're your first friends!
Nicolina: Huh...?
Hagumi: We're outside hanging out together like this, so we're friends already!
Kaoru: I am honored to befriend such a remarkable princess.
Nicolina: ...
Misaki: Okay, so how about we go somewhere Nicolina-san wants to go next?
Kokoro: Yeah! Hey, Nicolina! Tell us where you want to go!
Nicolina: A-alright. I...

I Won't Be Lonely

Nicolina is delighted to have met Hello, Happy World! However, the day the group must return home is soon approaching...

Happinelle Castle - Guest Quarters
 


Kokoro: That was awesome! Everyone is in great form!
Misaki: Phew, we are finally practicing...
Nicolina: Great work, everybody. That was an excellent performance.
Nicolina: That was my first time seeing a band... It was very lively with all of that jumping, leaping, and somersaulting.
Misaki: Yeah, please don't think of that as normal. We're a pretty peculiar band.
Nicolina: Is that so?
Misaki: Our performances are quite unique, but even our band activities are not exactly what they were originally supposed to be.
Misaki: You see, we even count our non-musical activities as band activities if they make people smile.
Nicolina: I feel like that is admirable in its own right, though... And it seems somewhat enjoyable.
Kokoro: It's super fun! Everyone around us is always smiling!
Kaoru: "Make the world smile." That is our mission as Hello, Happy World!
Hagumi: Just wait until our festival show! We'll make it so good that even you'll think it's exciting!
Nicolina: Yes, I am looking forward to it. I truly am, but...
Kanon: What's the matter, Nicolina-san?
Nicolina: Ah, well, I am looking forward to seeing your performance, but... you will all leave after the festival, won't you?
Misaki: Well, yeah. We do live in Japan, after all.
Nicolina: Yes, that's right. You only came here to do a concert...
Nicolina: We have only just become friends, so it is a shame that we have to part ways so quickly...
Misaki & Kanon: ...
Kokoro: Don't make that face, Nicolina. You look cloudier than a rainy day.
Nicolina: I apologize. But I cannot help feeling this way when I think of the day you are to leave.
Nicolina: I wish you could all stay in Happinelle forever... Of course, I know this is selfish of me...
Kanon: Nicolina-san...
Kokoro: Thanks for telling us how youu feel, Nicolina.
Misaki: Yeah, we're all very happy to hear that you feel this way about us.
Kokoro: And you know what?! I thought of a really good idea!
Kokoro: What if we all lived here in Happinelle?!
Hagumi, Kaoru, Kokoro & Misaki: Huh...?
Kokoro: That way, Nicolina would be happy! And we would be happy! It's a super-duper idea that'll make everyone smile!
Kanon, Misaki, Hagumi & Kaoru: Whaaat~?!
Happinelle Castle - Foyer
 


Misaki: Sigh~...
Kokoro: That was a big sigh, Misaki!
Misaki: I wonder why you always take things one step further than I expect you to~...
Kanon: We can't possibly live in Happinelle, Kokoro-chan~!
Kokoro: Oh, why not? It's a great place!
Kokoro: I've only seen a little bit of the city, but I feel like there's lots of fun things to do here!
Hagumi: I can't move here~!
Hagumi: I have to help at the store! Plus I have softball and my friends in Japan~!
Kaoru: While I am not opposed to spreading my wings...
Kaoru: It is incredibly sudden, and I'm afraid my family and little kittens back in Japan would collapse in shock.
Misaki: Yeah, and don't try to make us move on a whim like that.
Kanon: I think your family would also worry if you told them this, Kokoro-chan...
Kokoro: They'd be fine with it! Mother and Father support me in whatever I want to do!
Kanon: Th-they do?
Misaki: I see. So this is how Kokoro became Kokoro...
Kokoro: Hmm... I thought it would be fun if we all moved here... but I guess we can't.
Misaki: Of course we can't. Now go apologize to Nicolina for getting her hopes up.
Kokoro: I will. I'll tell her I thought we could all stay, but actually only I can.
Misaki: That's right. Only you can- What?
Kaoru: Do you intend to reside here, Kokoro?
Kokoro: Well, Nicolina won't be able to smile anymore if all her friends leave.
Kokoro: She's finally happy again, so I can't let that happen.
Hagumi: But what will happen to Hello, Happy World! if you aren't there, Kokoron?
Kokoro: You sure say some weird things, Hagumi. I'll be right here, of course!
Kokoro: I'll just zoom over on the plane whenever we have band stuff! And I'll bring lots of souvenirs!
Misaki: Th-that's ridiculous...!
Hagumi: Yeah! You can't move far away...!
Hagumi: Are you really okay with that? Won't you be lonely without us?
Kokoro: Lonely...? I don't know about that, but probably not!
Misaki, Hagumi, Kaoru & Kanon: ...!
Kokoro: Anyway, I'm gonna go talk to Nicolina!
Kanon: W-wait, Kokoro-chan...!

Misaki: I knew she could be an airhead, but I never thought she'd go this far...
Misaki: Moving to a country she barely knows on a whim? What is she thinking...?!
Kanon: M-Misaki-chan...
Misaki: I don't understand half the things Kokoro does, but this has got to be the most mind-boggling...!
Kanon: Yeah... I never thought it would come to this...
Kaoru: But it is a very Kokoro-esque gesture.
Kaoru: When presented with a person who has forgotten how to smile, she makes them smile again. That is Kokoro to the core.
Misaki: Even so, she doesn't need to go this far...
Hagumi: I don't want Kokoro to move far away...
Hagumi: She said she would keep doing the band like normal, but it wouldn't be the same at all.
Kanon: Hagumi-chan...
Hagumi: We've always been together...
Hagumi: We won't be able to have Hello, Happy World! meetings after school, or do Smile Patrol activities together...
Hagumi: It won't be the same at all. So why is she okay with that...?
Kaoru: ... The world may not seem so vast to Kokoro.
Hagumi: What do you mean?
Kaoru: To Kokoro, going to another country most likely feels like a mere excursion.
Kanon: Now that you mention it, she kind of gave me that impression when we went to Happy Happy Island...
Kaoru: No matter where she is, she can grasp the treasures of the world by simply reaching out her hand... That may be how Kokoro views the world.
Hagumi: Kokoron might think that way, but I sure don't...!
Misaki: Ahh, I can't take this...!
Kanon: Huh? Where are you going, Misaki-chan?
Misaki: ... I'm going for a walk to calm down.
Kanon: ...
Happinelle Castle - Nicolina's Room
 


Nicolina: Huh...? You're going to stay here on your own, Kokoro-san?
Kokoro: Yeah. I thought it'd be so much fun if we all stayed here, but I guess the others can't.
Nicolina: O-of course not. Even I never thought you would actually stay in Happinelle...
Kokoro: Well, it's a good thing I could make your wish come true!
Nicolina: A good thing...? I do not think it is...
Kokoro: Why not? You'll be able to smile. Isn't that a really good thing?!
Nicolina: But won't the others feel lonely if you move far away...?
Nicolina: In fact, you would be making yourself feel lonely by leaving...
Kokoro: Hagumi said something like that too. But I don't really get what lonely means.
Nicolina: Y-you don't...?
Kokoro: Hagumi, Kanon, Misaki and Kaoru all seemed a bit weird, but... there's nothing to worry about.
Kokoro: Nothing's going to change. In fact, I'm sure things will be even more fun this way.
Kokoro: I can look for fun stuff to do with you here in this country, and then on my days off, I can do band stuff with Hello, Happy World!
Kokoro: Just thinking about it makes me all excited...
Nicolina: ... Kokoro-san?
Kokoro: Hmmm...
Kokoro: Just thinking about it should make me feel excited... right?
Nicolina: Is something the matter?
Kokoro: No, it's nothing. I just had trouble picturing it.
Kokoro: Just you wait and see. I'll think of some super fun-tastic things we can do in the future.
Kokoro: I'll make you and all of Happinelle smile, and then I'll make the world smile!
Kokoro: No matter how you look at it, the future is bright!
Nicolina: ...

Misaki: ...
Hagumi: There you are, Mii-kun.
Misaki: Hagumi... What is it?
Hagumi: You seemed really annoyed before, so I thought I'd see if you were okay...
Misaki: What're you talking about? You know that Kokoro's ideas always make me frown.
Hagumi: I know, but... This time feels different. You always frown, but you don't really mean it.
Hagumi: Right now, you seem really angry...!
Misaki: Well, I just don't get her...! She always says the weirdest things without a thought for other people's feelings...!
Hagumi: Has she really said that many strange things?
Misaki: Of course she has. Or rather, she only says that kind of stuff.
Misaki: Like, remember when we went to that island in the south to look for treasure? And then we got ourselves into danger exploring that cave...
Hagumi: Was it really that dangerous?
Misaki: We were attacked by bats! And you head-butted me! We were in serious trouble!
Hagumi: Ah! That's right! Sorry about that, Mii-kun.
Misaki: It's no big deal... And remember when we rebuilt Smile Land?
Misaki: That was really stressful. Fixing damaged facilities and asking all sorts of people to cooperate was way beyond the duties of a high schooler.
Hagumi: It was stressful, but... I had fun! It was a great success, and everyone who visited the park was full of smiles!
Hagumi: Was it only stressful for you? Did you not enjoy it?
Misaki: Well, I-
Hagumi: Mii-kun!
Misaki: O-okay! It was fun! I had fun, okay?!
Misaki: I was worried about how it'd turn out, but... I guess it was more or less fun doing something all together...
Hagumi: That's right! We've had so much fun becoming friends with Kokoron and forming Hello, Happy World!
Hagumi: But if Kokoron moves here, our fun days will be over!
Misaki: I-I know that...
Hagumi: Then we have to stop Kokoron!
Misaki: But Kokoro said she was fine with leaving us...
Hagumi: ...! Mii-kun...! So that's why you're so mad...
Hagumi: You know, I actually wanted to try harder to stop Kokoron...
Hagumi: But Kokoron is always right, so I thought that maybe I was in the wrong...
Misaki: Hagumi...
Hagumi: I couldn't say it then, but it's not too late yet...! Even in softball, there's always a chance to turn the game around, right up until the end!
Misaki: Kokoro... Would she really not be lonely...?
Hagumi: I dunno how she feels, but you know how you feel, right?
Hagumi: Are you okay just splitting up with Kokoron like this, Mii-kun?!
Misaki: Of course I'm not...!
Misaki: Ever since I met Kokoro, every day has been absurd, and she's always getting us into nonsensical antics...
Misaki: But I guess it would feel weird if this changed so suddenly... I don't want to admit it, but this crazy lifestyle hasn't been all that bad...
Hagumi: Then we have to get Kokoron to stay with us!
Hagumi: It might be selfish of us, but I can't just send her off with a smile!
Misaki: ... Yes, you're right. I can't accept this either.
Misaki: Let's go and find Kokoro. It's about time she went along with our selfish plans for once.
Hagumi: Mii-kun...!
Happinelle Castle - Guest Quarters
 


Kanon: Misaki-chan still hasn't come back...
Kaoru: Do not fret. Hagumi has gone to ensure her wellbeing.
Kanon: Sigh, I feel kind of miserable...
Kaoru: What has possessed you? Don't say such sorrowful things.
Kanon: Well, I couldn't do anything about our situation...
Kanon: I never thought Kokoro-chan would say something like that... I didn't know what to say...
Kaoru: Kanon...
Kanon: If that's how I react in the most crucial of moments, I can't really say I've changed since joining Hello, Happy World!, can I...?
Kaoru: It's understandable. Even I was at a loss for words.
Kaoru: No, perhaps that is not entirely accurate. I pondered whether or not I should support Kokoro.
Kanon: Support Kokoro-chan...? You mean, in her decision to stay here?
Kaoru: If that is what she so desires, is it not our responsibility as her friends to support her?
Kanon: M-maybe, but... I don't think staying here would be the right decision.
Kanon: Kokoro-chan is a very straightforward person. She would go anywhere in the world just to make someone smile...
Kanon: But I don't think she should have to give up something of her own in order to do that.
Kanon: Our day-to-day lives may seem ordinary to us, but I'm sure that they are actually quite precious, and we should not let go of them so easily.
Kaoru: ... Intriguing. The most important things are those one takes for granted... I agree with this sentiment.
Kaoru: Therefore, this time, I'm afraid I cannot support Kokoro's wishes. Kokoro must be with us, and we must be with Kokoro... It is written in the stars!
Kaoru: After all, these ordinary days that Kokoro is trying to let go of are irreplaceable to us.
Kanon: Kaoru-san...
Kaoru: Fufu, you said before that you have not changed, but I believe you are mistaken.
Kaoru: I do not think the you from when we first met would have been able to put your emotions into words so eloquently.
Kanon: Y-you think so...? I'm glad I'm making some progress then, even if it's only a little...
Kaoru: You are indeed. And you will continue to do so alongside all of Hello, Happy World!
Kanon: Yeah...! Yeah, I will...!
Misaki: Kanon-san, Kaoru-san, can I talk to you both for a second...?
Kanon: Ah, we also have something to discuss with you...
Kanon & Misaki: Let's talk to Kokoro-
Let's go and find Kokoro-chan-
Kanon & Misaki: ...!
Hagumi: Ahaha, looks like we're all thinking the same thing!
Kaoru: We are all members of the same band, brought together by fate. There is only one path to walk, and it is the same for all of us.
Kanon: Yeah, we'll all go together...!
Misaki: And find Kokoro...!
