I Can't Sing!

Kasumi works her hardest after being told she was the weakest link, but...?!

Ichigaya Residence - Basement
 
Arisa (icon) Arisa
We decided to take a break, you know. Shouldn't you relax for a bit?
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
Nope, I'm okay!
Arisa (icon) Arisa
Are you though...? You've been practicing during recess too. I think you're putting a little bit too much time into this...
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
I'm fine... Ow!
Arisa (icon) Arisa
What happened?
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
E-ehehe, I cut my finger.
Arisa (icon) Arisa
Seriously...? Uhhh, first-aid kit, where are you...? Here it is.
Arisa (icon) Arisa
Here, a bandage. And be careful.
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
Thanks, Arisa.
Arisa (icon) Arisa
...
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
...? What's wrong?
Arisa (icon) Arisa
Kasumi, you always seem like you're having so much fun.
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
Yep! Because I am! And I love practicing as hard as I can!
Arisa (icon) Arisa
... Isn't that tiring?
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
Huh?
Arisa (icon) Arisa
At what point will you feel satisfied? When you can play perfectly? When we can perform at SPACE?
Arisa (icon) Arisa
I have to imagine trying so hard to pass an audition isn't exactly why you find it fun... Is it?
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
Arisa, you don't find being a part of Poppin'Party fun...?
Arisa (icon) Arisa
Huh? Well, hmm...
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
So you don't?!
Arisa (icon) Arisa
Wait! I do...!
Arisa (icon) Arisa
Ah! No, I take that back!
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
Ehehe~, I thought you did!
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
I find practicing fun because I enjoy being a part of the band. And that's why I know that performing at SPACE will be too! For sure!
Arisa (icon) Arisa
For sure, huh...? I guess I'll just take your word for it for now and do my best.
Arisa (icon) Arisa
If we're gonna have this audition, we have to pass while we're at it.
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
Yeah! Let's do it~!
Arisa (icon) Arisa
Whoa! I told you, no hugging! Get off of me~!
Saaya (icon) Saaya
We're back.
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
Ah, it's Saaya and the others! Thanks for going to the store!
Rimi (icon) Rimi
Sorry, they didn't have any cream anmitsu~.
Tae (icon) Tae
So instead, we got hamburg steak.
Arisa (icon) Arisa
Why?!
Saaya (icon) Saaya
Ahaha, don't worry. We bought some treats that we thought you might like, Arisa.
Tae (icon) Tae
Hm? Kasumi, did you hurt your finger?
Rimi (icon) Rimi
Huh? Are you okay?
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
I'm alright! I just cut it on my guitar string! ... Wait, you hurt your finger too, O-Tae!
Tae (icon) Tae
Yep, I was practicing for really long yesterday.
Arisa (icon) Arisa
And you're fine...?
Tae (icon) Tae
Mhm, all is well. This isn't enough to get me down.
Tae (icon) Tae
I started thinking about what exactly we're missing, and there were so many things... And I just kept practicing and practicing, it was like I had no goal in mind.
Tae (icon) Tae
But I did it anyway. If 100 times isn't enough, I'll do it 101 times. If that's still not enough, I'll do it 1000 times. I decided I would keep playing until I'm completely satisfied.
Rimi (icon) Rimi
I know exactly how you feel, O-Tae-chan.
Rimi (icon) Rimi
I worried about failing that audition, and I only thought about being just good enough. But we need to do better than that.
Rimi (icon) Rimi
I want people to enjoy listening to me play, so I need to practice so that I can have fun at the same time.
Arisa (icon) Arisa
O-Tae... Rimi...
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
...
Saaya (icon) Saaya
... I did some thinking after the audition as well.
Saaya (icon) Saaya
At first, I felt like it would be nice to pass. But there's no way we could get in with such indifference.
Saaya (icon) Saaya
Now, I feel like I really wanna stand on that stage. I wanna go up there with Poppin'Party, just like Natsu and the others.
Arisa (icon) Arisa
(I think I was the same way...)
Arisa (icon) Arisa
(Kasumi invited me to join the band, one thing led to another, and I did... I kept with it because I enjoyed being with everyone... But that's just not serious enough...)
Arisa (icon) Arisa
(If I wanna perform on that stage, I need to give it everything I've got too... Any less won't do.)
Tae (icon) Tae
It's time, Kasumi. We gotta get more fired up.
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
M-mhm, we have to try even harder! Me included...!
Arisa (icon) Arisa
Alright, let's make it happen then!
Tae, Saaya & Rimi
Yeah!
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
...

Arisa (icon) Arisa
I'm ready! This is the day we pull it off...!
Rimi (icon) Rimi
It's time to pass the audition, Kasumi-chan.
Kasumi (icon) Kasumi
