Ako: Hey, Rin-rin? Things have been kinda weird lately, haven't they?
Rinko: Huh...? D-did I... do something weird...?
Rinko: I was... trying to be normal but... if I'm actually doing something weird... I'd like for you to tell me...
Ako: S-slow down for a sec', Rin-rin!
Ako: I wasn't talking about you~!
Rinko: ...? It wasn't me...?
Ako: You're fine! I was talking about Sayo-san!
Rinko: Hikawa-san...?
Ako: Don't you think she's being strange? I mean, she was kinda off during today's rehearsal. I wonder if something is bothering her...
Rinko: Ah, now that you mention it... She was whispering to herself... that her playing was too precise...
Ako: Huh? But isn't being precise awesome?!
Ako: In fact, I'm totally jealous~! I'm always struggling to be precise when I'm hitting the drums~.
Rinko: I think... I kind of understand...
Ako: Huh? You get what she means?
Rinko: Ako-chan... do you know the artist... Picasso?
Ako: Mhm, I know Picasso!
Ako: It's the guy that draws pictures that look like graffiti, right? He wasn't very good, but I'm sure he really liked pictures!
Rinko: Th-that's not really the case... Picasso... can actually draw amazing pictures... if he just drew them normally...
Ako: R-really?!
Rinko: Mhm, my mother... was telling me about it... That when he was a kid... he would draw really well...
Rinko: That he could precisely replicate anything on paper... But that's the reason why he aspired to create... freer, imprecise paintings...
Rinko: Those abstract paintings... were born because that's what Picasso was aiming for.
Ako: Ohh~. So those weren't graffiti...!
Ako: I'm kinda starting to feel like this Picasso person was really cool~!
Ako: Hm? So that would mean that Sayo-san is...?
Rinko: M-mhm, I'm sure that she's... aspiring to find something... that she doesn't currently have...
Rinko: It is... because her guitar playing is the most precise... that she has something to worry about... I think...
Ako: Okay, I definitely get it now. Sayo-san wants to become even cooler than she already is, right?!
Rinko: M-mhm... I guess if you wanted to put it simply, maybe...
Ako: Mhm, mhm! If that's what's going on, then I understand how she feels~!
Ako: I want to play the drums way way way~ better than I play them now! Not to mention, I want to be as cool when I'm playing as my sister is!
Rinko: Mhm, I... would like to improve as well...
Ako: Ehehe, let's do it together, Rin-rin!
Ako: Alright~, I'm gonna let loose and just play!
Rinko: Huh...?
Ako: If I can be as free as Picasso when I'm playing the drums, that'd be so cool! And my playing would keep powering up, no?
Rinko: A-Ako-chan... That's a bit too far... If you play the drums freely... we won't have a song...

To Perform Boléro

Station Entrance
 


Rinko: ... Ah, BanG Dreamer-san. G-good afternoon...
Rinko: ... M-mhm... I'm headed home... from rehearsal...
Rinko: ... Y-yes... Of course... Hikawa-san was there.
Rinko: ... Th-that's right. Ako-chan was... saying the same thing, but...
Rinko: Lately, Hikawa-san's playing has been... amazing.
Rinko: ... Uhm... I'm not sure how to describe it, but... it feels... intense...
Rinko: When she plays, her tempo is calm... and it's steady, but...
Rinko: In my opinion... I'd say it's... very moving... I guess...
Rinko: Do you know... the song Boléro... by Ravel?
Rinko: Y-yes... It's a famous... classical song.
Rinko: So the rhythm... it continues along very steadily... and it's very consistent but...
Rinko: Th-that... theme of repetition... causes the intensity... to gradually increase...
Rinko: If you want to have... a steady and consistent rhythm...
Rinko: More so than skill... you need mental energy... I think.
Rinko: I-I can feel... strong mental energy...
Rinko: Coming from... Hikawa-san's guitar...
Rinko: Especially... listening to her recently... I can sense it...
Rinko: What kind of experience... would one need to produce a powerful sound like that...? I wonder... what changed...
Rinko: ... I want to be able... to produce a sound... like that... too...
Rinko: Ah... S-sorry... I talked... the entire time...
Rinko: Thank you, for listening... to me... talk... I-I'll be... going now...
