Neo-Aspect Event Story Chapter 1
An Unexpected Chance

An unexpected encounter brings talk of a new opportunity for Roselia...


Studio
 
Sayo
I believe our playing today came together reasonably well. What are your thoughts, Minato-san?
Yukina
Agreed. This was a fairly good rehearsal. Perfect time to end as well. Let's call it a day.
Rinko
Great work... everyone.
Sayo
You too. Now, let's tidy this place up.
Ako
Okay~!
Lisa
Good job today, you guys~! Hey, how about since we ended a little early, we stop by the café outside?
Ako
Yeah! I wanna go!
Yukina
... That's fine, I suppose. Sayo, Rinko, would you like to go?
Sayo
Only for a brief moment...
Rinko
I... can go.
Lisa
Yay! Then let's get to cleaning already!
CiRCLE Café
 
Ako
Today's practice was a blast~! Right, Rin-rin?!
Rinko
Mhm... We should see some improvement after that rehearsal...
Lisa
Which reminds me. Hey, Sayo. You know how we were talking about making cookies...?
Teatime with the Band
Ako
What?! Sayo-san, Lisa-nee! You're making cookies together?!
Sayo
I-Imai-san...! I thought I asked you to keep quiet about this!
Lisa
Oh, did you...? Sorry, my bad. Well, should be fine now since your secret is out, shouldn't it?
Yukina
Whenever we have your cookies, I feel like we're all able to perform better. I'll be looking forward to whatever you two make.
Lisa
You can count on me!
???
Excuse me, are you girls from Roselia?
Yukina
That is correct. Can we help you...?
Walking Home
 
Rinko
... That was... a pretty big deal...
Lisa
Sweet Music Shower... That's what it was called, right? I did a little bit of searching on the internet. Seems like this event is crazy huge..
Yukina
Many bands that have played at Future World Fes have also performed there.
Rinko
To think... someone would come talk to us... about something that amazing...

???
Excuse me, are you girls from Roselia?
Yukina
That is correct. Can we help you...?
Staff
I work for the company that manages the music event known as Sweet Music Shower.
Staff
I came here today hoping that you'd all be interested in performing at the next one.

Ako
I always knew Roselia was super-duper cool! That's the only reason they would go out of their way to talk to us, right?
Sayo
The junior division... We'd only be opening for the pros to follow, but the event rivals Future World Fes itself. We have to get focused and prepare ourselves.
Yukina
Certainly. Let's make this a performance that'll bring us closer to Future World Fes.
Sayo
Sorry, Imai-san, but let's wait until after Sweet Music Shower, SMS, to make those cookies.
Lisa
Welp, can't really do much about that. No problem! We can take our time once we're done with the concert ♪
Yukina
I appreciate you putting that off. I believe we'll need to increase our rehearsal time in preparation for this.
Rinko
That's right... It's time to work hard... We're going to want to put on a good show...
Ako
Yeah~!
Neo-Aspect Event Story Chapter 2
A Warm Atmosphere

The members of Roselia eagerly prepare their set list for their upcoming show...


The Next Day
 
Studio
 
Yukina
Everyone, I've done some thinking about our set list for SMS. Take a look.
Yukina
We'll only be playing three songs. I decided we wouldn't need to alternate our pace throughout the performance. We'll keep the intensity up from start to finish. What are your thoughts?
Ako
Great! I think it's a good set list! I want them to see the coolest Roselia we can show them!
Sayo
Likewise, I see no problem with it.
Lisa
Mhm! I think it's very good as well! It's like they're getting as much of us as possible in the span of those three songs!
Rinko
All of these songs are... very demanding... Will you be okay... Ako-chan?
Ako
I'll be okay...! I think. I'll do everything I can to give them my best drumming the whole way through!
Sayo
Let's carefully look over each of the three songs today. There should still be spots that can use some improvement.
Yukina
I agree. Alright, shall we get started?
After Rehearsal
 
Walking Home
 
Ako
Hey, Rin-rin, could you join me on a few quests after we get home?
Rinko
Mhm... Yeah, those limited-time quests... end today, don't they...?
Ako
Yeah~. And I still have about three left to go...
Sayo
You two still have the energy to play video games after all that practice?
Ako
Yep! There's always room for games, even after rehearsal! ... Oh, are you trying to tell me I should be using that energy when I practice...?
Sayo
I wouldn't say that. I simply think it's strange that you have so much of it.
Rinko
Uhm... Hikawa-san, if you have time... would you like to join us...?
Sayo
No, sorry, I'll have to pass. I need to eliminate my problem spots in preparation for SMS.
Rinko
I see... J-just... don't overdo it, okay...?
Lisa
Phew~, it's been a while since we've had a rehearsal that tough.
Yukina
We can't have you complaining already. We need you to perfect your playing... No, we need you to perfect even better playing by the day of the show.
Lisa
Yeah, you're right! Sorry! ... But you know, I'm actually happy.
Yukina
You're happy? About having a tough rehearsal?
Lisa
Not that! About being able to take part in a huge event like SMS. It makes me think that we must be doing pretty well.
Lisa
You remember how the judges at that Future World Fes contest told us we have a lot of potential? That we'll go far?
Lisa
This whole thing makes me feel like they were actually right about us.
Ako
Oh yeah. Sayo-san, you're still logging into your game every now and then, right?
Sayo
What?! How did you know that...?
Rinko
You can see... how long your friends were playing... during their last login...
Sayo
I-is that right...? I had no idea...
Lisa
Not only is our skill as a band pretty high, but we have a nice mood going too. I bet if we keep this up—
Yukina
There's no knowing what the future holds.
Lisa
A-ahaha... My bad. I was just so happy, it got the best of me.
Yukina
I, too, am pleased to have someone come directly to us and ask us to participate in SMS. The other members and I can also sense the overall better mood that surrounds the band.
Yukina
But that is exactly why we cannot let our guard down.
Lisa
Yeah. Alright, let's give it everything we've got!
Lisa
(Yukina... May your dream come true...!)
Neo-Aspect Event Story Chapter 3
The Crowd's Response

The day of the event has arrived.
Everything seems to be going smoothly, but...?!


SMS 8 Venue
 
Offstage
 
Lisa
Looks like they're almost ready for us...! Ohhh, my nerves... Yep, they're getting to me...
Sayo
You can hear all the commotion from throughout the venue back here.
Ako
There are so many people in the audience...! My heart's beating really hard~!
Yukina
Everyone, relax. We just have to do exactly as we practiced.
Rinko
Y-yeah...!
Staff
You're on standby! This way!
All
Okay!
Audience Member A
Oh, it's Roselia!
Audience Member B
Wow, you know them?
Audience Member A
I saw them playing at a small-time spot once. They're only high-school girls, but they have a pretty good sound going for them!
Yukina
We are Roselia.
Ako
One, two, three!
Ako
(Yes...! The audience is getting into it! Keep on watching! You'll see how cool we are~!)
Sayo
(Even the parts that I kept getting tripped up on have come together really well. This performance... This should do it...!)
Audience Member A
Hmm~...
Audience Member B
Well, they certainly sound good...
Audience Member C
Which band is after the junior division again? I think I'll go wash my hands while I have the chance.
Audience Member D
Oh, me too! And maybe I'll get something to eat.
Lisa
(Huh...? Wait, what...?!)
Rinko
(The audience...)
Sayo
(They're leaving...)
Yukina

After The Show

Yukina
...
Sayo
... I don't think it was a bad performance.
Rinko
...
Ako
Why did so many people leave? I was even able to do the parts I always mess up on...
Staff
Roselia, thanks for taking part in the event.
Lisa
Ah...! Thanks again for having us!
Staff
I don't mean to be rude at all, but were you girls nervous by any chance? I feel like your performance today left a different impression than before...
Lisa
A-ahaha~! Sorry about that. Yeah, we might have been too nervous...
Yukina
...
Staff
W-well, you are just high school students. This is only the beginning for you. Feel free to stay and listen to the other performances if you'd like. Thanks again.
All
...
Lisa
What do we do now?
Yukina
Let's call it a day.
Sayo
What about reflecting on our performance?
Yukina
We'll do it another day. I don't imagine I'll be able to think about it clearly at the moment.
Yukina
... I'll see you all later.
Rinko
Ah... Yukina-san...!
Ako

Our Lost Sound

Yukina ponders why the audience left during Roselia's show...


Minato Residence
 
Yukina
...
Yukina
(What was it about today's performance that made the audience leave?)
Yukina
(We're clearly much better than we were before. We've even been overcoming our individual weaknesses... And yet...)
Staff
I don't mean to be rude at all, but were you girls nervous by any chance? I feel like your performance today left a different impression than before...
Yukina
What exactly... is different...?
A Few Days Later
 
Studio
 
Yukina
... Now, let's start from two measures back.
Ako
...
Yukina
Ako? The count, please.
Ako
... Ah, o-okay...!
Rinko
...
Sayo
... Time's almost up.
Yukina
Everyone, be sure to fix your individual problem spots by next rehearsal. Alright, we'll end here. Let's clean up.
All
Great job today, everyone. Good stuff, guys!
Yukina
(Even playing together, I still don't understand... What was it about our SMS performance that didn't work?)
Yukina
(What's different than before...?)
Lisa
Yukina~! Nice work, today! Would you like a cookie too?
Sayo
Imai-san, I thought we promised to make the cookies together... And you went and did it on your own?
Lisa
Ahaha~... Sorry. It's just, you know... This is different.
Lisa
We may not... have done so well at SMS, but it made me realize once again that we have a long way to go! That's all!
Lisa
So it's like a... "Let's keep doing our best!"... Kinda thing?
Yukina
(Ah...)
Sayo
If that's why you made them, I would think there'd be even more reason for me to take part, being a member of the band and all...
Ako
Ohhh... I still don't even know why SMS didn't go well for us...
Yukina
(Is this... the reason?)
Lisa
Hmm~... I thought it was because my skill was lacking. Sure, I was able to play along well enough, but my technical skill is still, you know...
Sayo
If you think it's insufficient, then there's no better way to improve than by practicing. I'll accompany you, Imai-san.
Ako
Sayo-san... So you also think the audience didn't stay to listen because the rest of us aren't good musicians?
Sayo
Well... I feel like that's not the only reason... However, there's no downside to honing one's skills, is there? In which case, that may be a good place to start.
Rinko
You really think... we should just practice... until we figure it out...?
Sayo
I suppose. Time to think is certainly important, but the more we think, the more time we lose. That'd be a waste.
Lisa
Ahaha, that's Sayo for you. Alrighty, I guess I'll take you up on your offer then!
Sayo
Sounds good. Let's go ask for an extension on our studio time.
Lisa
Okay~☆ We'll take a bit of a recess, and then we'll start solo practice. What are you gonna do, Yukina?
Yukina
... I'll be going home. Also, Lisa...
Lisa
Hm? Something wrong?
Yukina
... You don't have to make cookies anymore. We don't need them.
Rinko
Yukina... san...?
Lisa
H-huh? I'm sorry, Yukina... Did I miss something...?
Yukina
I'll be off now...
Ako
What happened to Yukina-san...?
Yukina
(We have to bring it all back...)
Yukina
(Our music... Our seriousness...)
Neo-Aspect Event Story Chapter 5
The Gears Begin to Fall Off

In order to restore the sense of urgency Roselia had in the past, Yukina has some harsh words for her bandmates...


The Next Week
 
Studio
 
Yukina
... Stop! The tempo is completely off... Ako, I thought I told everyone at our last practice to fix their problem spots by today.
Ako
... I'm sorry.
Yukina
You remember our last performance, don't you? It's obvious we still have something we're lacking.
Yukina
When something is inadequate, you make it adequate. That's all there is to it. This goes especially for you, Ako. If you don't refine your skills, you will fall behind.
Ako
... U-understood! Sorry...!
Yukina
If you continue to show insufficient progress, you will be dropped from this band. Keep that in mind when you're playing.
Ako
Okay...
Lisa
Hold up, Yukina... What's gotten into you? Why would you say something like that...?
Yukina
Nothing's gotten into me. If you can't live up to this band's standards, you will be removed. This is something I've been saying since the very beginning.
Yukina
If that's not the sense of urgency we're approaching rehearsal with, it doesn't matter how long we practice, we'll never reach Future World Fes.
Sayo
You might be right that our playing just now lacked in that department. We cannot perform without the right level of pressure. Let's try it again, Udagawa-san.
Ako
Ohhh~...
Shirokane & Udagawa Residence
 
Ako
"Rin-rin! I'm having trouble with the event boss! It's too strong! Can you help me with leveling up and farming materials?"
Rinko
"Mhm, of course...! Okay, so we'll find a quest for grinding..."
Ako
"Thanks!"
Rinko
"So what exactly are you trying to do...?"
Ako
"Okay, so... If I can raise my level, even a little, that'd be great. I also wanna get the materials I need for this armor!"
Rinko
"Got it. Alright... Let's do it..."
Ako
"Ah, Rin-rin! The material dropped!"
Rinko
"Congratulations, Ako-chan...! That's great..."
Ako
"Now I can power up my armor~! I wonder if I'll be able to take down the boss with this."
Rinko
"Should we try fighting it next...?"
Ako
"Yep, sounds like a plan! Will you help me grind more levels again if we're not strong enough?"
Rinko
"Yeah, no problem. We'll give it our best shot... Will after tomorrow's rehearsal be okay...?"
Ako
"Sigh... Rehearsal~..."
Rinko
"What's wrong...?
Ako
"There was something off about today's rehearsal, wasn't there? I was so nervous, I couldn't play well at all... It's like, it just wasn't fun."
Ako
"And Yukina-san was all mad at me because the tempo wasn't right."
Rinko
"Oh... Yeah, pressure can be important, but... I don't think the pressure we felt today was very positive..."
Ako
"Hey, Rin-rin. I was wondering something. What do you think makes video games and band rehearsal so different?"
Rinko
"What do you mean?"
Ako
"Think about it. If you're playing a game and you fight a boss that's too hard, you slowly raise your level, and you go back to fight it again. If it's still too hard, you repeat the same steps, right?"
Ako
"Band rehearsal is the same. You practice, you perform, and if your performance was bad, you practice even more... You repeat the same steps. Why is it that sometimes it's not very fun?"
Ako
"Is it because video games are just games? Hmm~, I think there's more to it than that..."
Rinko
"Maybe because... our goal isn't clear to us...?"
Ako
"That could be it... Yeah, we know we're trying to reach Future World Fes, but we don't know how close we are to achieving that goal at the moment."
Rinko
"Yeah... That's been our aim all this time, but... our performance at SMS, an event that's similar to Future World Fes, wasn't very good..."
Ako
"Sayo-san was saying we just need to start by practicing, but... will that really be enough?"
Rinko
"I understand what Hikawa-san is trying to say, but... it can be pretty tough if we're only practicing over and over..."
Ako
"Sigh... I wonder if our next rehearsal will be the same... This is the first time I've ever felt like I didn't wanna go..."
Neo-Aspect Event Story Chapter 6
The Echoes of Discord

Yukina grows more and more demanding. Can Ako take it for much longer?!


The Next Day
 
Studio
 
Yukina
... Ako! The tempo is all over the place.
Ako
... I'm sorry...
Yukina
I know I told everyone to fix their problem spots last time. Don't make me repeat myself.
Lisa
H-hey, c'mon now! Maybe she just didn't have enough time to figure it out before today's rehearsal. If it's that bad, all she has to do is practice, right?
Lisa
Nothing good will come from rushing it, so no reason to be so hard on her...
Yukina
... Let's start from the same part then.
Ako
... I don't think I'll get it, no matter how many times we try.
Sayo
Udagawa-san?
Ako
I'm gonna get it wrong, no matter how many times we do it!! I don't even know how I'm supposed to get better anymore...!
Yukina
You're not a baby, don't give me that. If you can't do it, you repeat it until you can.
Ako
And why should I try to improve in the first place?!
Yukina
Well...
Ako
We messed up at SMS, but we didn't even talk about what went wrong! We all just keep practicing without a clue as to what we're doing...
Ako
We don't even know whether we're getting closer or farther from performing at Future World Fes!
Yukina
Right now, farther. At least you are.
Ako
...! And why's that?! Because I'm not good enough?
Yukina
That's right. And with the way you're crying about something so insignificant, I can see exactly where you're headed.
Yukina
If you're gonna act like a spoiled brat, then you don't belong in this band.
Ako
...!!
Ako
... This... This isn't Roselia!!
Lisa
A-Ako!!
Rinko
... Yukina-san...
Yukina
We'll continue practicing with just the four of us.
Rinko
Why... would you say that... to Ako-chan...?
Yukina
Rinko...?
Determined Cries
Rinko
It doesn't matter... how much we practice... Our music... won't come together...!
Rinko
No one... will take a second glance... if we're performing like this...!
Rinko
Why would they...? No one's even listening in the first place!
Lisa
Rinko!!
Yukina
...
Lisa
Yukina, what happened to you? You've been acting weird since our practice the other day.
Yukina
I simply want to bring Roselia back.
Lisa
Bring it back...? What are you talking about?
Yukina
I want to revive our sound. That's all.
Sayo
Minato-san, what you're saying is way too vague. What do you mean by "bring it back"?
Yukina
No more friendliness. Roselia doesn't need it. Same goes for the cookies.
Lisa
Wait a sec! That's something the old you would say... Why are you being like that?
Yukina
... I won't be able to bring back our old sound otherwise.
Yukina
Don't you think we've all gotten a little too close?
Lisa
...!
Sayo
Minato-san...! She's gone...
Lisa
...
Sayo
Imai-san, are you okay?
Lisa
Ah... S-sorry... I was just... shocked.
Sayo
I think... I get where Minato-san is coming from.
Lisa
You get where she's coming from? What do you mean...?
Sayo
We've all had a lot of experiences thus far, as a band and as individuals. As a result, I can say I've grown as a person, and I believe the mood surrounding our band has improved for the better.
Sayo
However... I feel like that, in and of itself, created a significant problem for Roselia.
Sayo
That sense of urgency and pressure we were unconsciously surrounded by disappeared. I think at some point, the positive atmosphere found its way into our music.
Sayo
And because of that, it's possible that the current Roselia lacks the intensity that once accompanied its sound.
Lisa
Does that mean we have to return to the way we were if we want that intensity back...?
Sayo
... I don't believe reverting to our old selves is the right answer. Still...
Sayo
I'm not sure what is... I don't know what we need to do to get our sound back.
Lisa
Sigh...
Lisa
(Could it be... that what I've been doing all this time has actually been bad for the band...?)
Lisa
...
Neo-Aspect Event Story Chapter 7
Why Are We Here?

Lisa and Sayo try to think of ways to bring back Roselia's lost sound...


Walking Home
 
Lisa
...
Sayo
... Uhh, Imai-san...?
Lisa
Huh? Oh... Sorry, that wasn't like me...
Lisa
I was just thinking... What have I been doing all this time? I figured since I was the weakest musician in the band, I would try to help out just a little bit, you know?
Lisa
So I did whatever I could to lighten the mood and help everyone have an easier time performing... But it turns out that nothing I did was actually helping Roselia, huh?
Lisa
Even though everything I did was to help Yukina make her dream come true...
Sayo
...
Sayo
... You are Roselia's bassist.
Lisa
Huh...?
Sayo
You may lack in skill, but I recognize you as a bassist. Your role is here with this band. To us, you make a difference.
Lisa
Sayo...! Sigh, jeez... you're so sweet... But what are we supposed to do now?
Sayo
I agree with Minato-san... We need to restore the sound that came with a sense of urgency. However, we shouldn't have to go back to a time when we were more inexperienced to do so.
Lisa
Yeah. I think that's right... Yukina must feel the same way too. There's no way this is how she wants to bring back the old us.
Lisa
Even the stuff she was saying to Ako and Rinko... That can't be how she really feels... Maybe I should try talking to Yukina again. I'm also concerned about the other two...
Sayo
... Imai-san. If you did that, it'd be no different than what you normally do. Remember, we have to change.
Lisa
Y-yeah, but still~... I can't just stop worrying about everyone. I mean, I've been peacekeeper all this time, right?
Sayo
There's no denying that you've reliably provided emotional support for this band, but that doesn't mean you need to bear all of the burden on your own.
Sayo
In fact, it's possible that this band might have become spoiled by that very support...
Lisa
Ngh... I just don't know how to stop meddling in everyone's business, do I? And it's only been for the worst...
Sayo
I think you must reconsider how to effectively be that emotional pillar for the band, but I wouldn't say it's all been for the worst.
Lisa
Sayo, you really have changed. I never would've imagined I'd be hearing this from you...
Sayo
And you were part of why that change occurred. That's why I don't want you talking about your involvement in everything like it was a mistake.
Sayo
Our current problem is not one for you to deal with on your own. If we don't all face this in our own way, we'll never be able to restore Roselia to the state we want it to be in.
Lisa
Yeah, okay...! Sayo, I really appreciate you saying all of this.
Sayo
Things are still just getting started, you know.
Lisa
Yeah, but let me say thank you anyway! I think I would've just continued falling apart if it weren't for you.
Lisa
(I have things I need to think about. How should I personally face this problem? What's my reason for being a part of the band?)
Shirokane & Udagawa Residence
 
Ako & Rinko
"Sigh..."
Rinko
"Jinx... I guess..."
Ako
"What I did today was terrible... The way I started yelling and just ran out of there like that..."
Ako
"What was I thinking...?"
Rinko
"You could... say the same for me..."
Ako
"Wait, you too, Rin-rin?"
Rinko
"After you stormed out... I ended up screaming at Yukina-san too... And then I left..."
Ako
"Wow, you did that...?"
Rinko
"Sigh... I should have known better than to act that way..."
Ako
"I think something is weird about Roselia though. Why would Yukina-san start saying such mean things all of a sudden...?"
Rinko
"When you said, 'This isn't Roselia', I started thinking to myself..."
Rinko
"What exactly is Roselia?"
Ako
"It's a super, super, super cool band!! That's why I felt so angry when people in the crowd at SMS started getting up and walking away!"
Ako
"How could anyone not wanna listen to that?"
Rinko
"... I wonder if Yukina-san and the others... are thinking about the same thing."
Ako
"You mean why no one wanted to listen to us play?"
Rinko
"No, not that... I wonder if they're thinking about... how we've all been dealing with what happened at SMS individually..."
Rinko
"The rehearsal we had after SMS... Not only did the mood feel completely different... but everyone's playing sounded different as well..."
Ako
"Maybe it's because our performance didn't go well...?"
Rinko
"That could be part of it, but... it sounds like we all have something different on our minds when we're playing..."
Rinko
"Sure... we all have this bigger goal of reaching Future World Fes, but..."
Rinko
"Does that necessarily mean... we're all trying to move in the same direction...?"
Neo-Aspect Event Story Chapter 8
Receding Dreams

A confused Yukina continues to practice her singing. When Sayo tries to talk to her, she suddenly speaks her mind...


Studio
 
Lisa
Sayo~, did you figure it out yet? You know, how to bring Roselia back?!
Sayo
I wouldn't be stressing out if it were that easy.
Lisa
I know, I know~...
Sayo
What about you, Imai-san? Were you able to get in touch with Udagawa-san and Shirokane-san?
Lisa
Hmm... Well, they answer when the messages are just small talk, but... when I talk about rehearsal, things start to get a little messy...
Sayo
Sounds like we have a tough road ahead of us.
Lisa
Sigh... You know something, though? You might get mad at me for this, but I'm actually kinda happy.
Sayo
How can you say that at a time like this...?
Lisa
You know how when we were first starting the band, and there was a moment like this where it was kinda falling apart?
Lisa
I did everything in my power to face Yukina head-on. I had no idea what I was doing, and I did all the thinking I could.
Lisa
But there was no one to hear my cries, no one I could run to.
Sayo
I-I had things I was dealing with as well... It just wasn't a good time for me...
Lisa
No, no, that's not what I'm saying... I think what really happened was that I tried to shoulder the burden all on my own.
Lisa
So it really cheers me up to think that there's someone I can talk to about Yukina and Roselia like this.
Lisa
And I think it was only possible because we've opened up to each other. Ehehe...
Sayo
Imai-san...
Sayo
... H-how about we continue this discussion after we've solved the problem before us? We have to put all of our efforts into confronting that at the moment.
Lisa
Yeah, you're right. Sorry! ... Sayo...
Sayo
What?
Lisa
Let's fight this thing with everything we've got, okay?
Sayo
That was always my intention.
Yukina
Good morning, Sayo, Lisa.
Lisa
Y-Yukina...! Morning!
Yukina
Let's start practice.
Lisa
... Say, uhm, Yukina...
Sayo
Minato-san, may I ask you one thing first?
Yukina
What is it?
Sayo
We need to revive Roselia's sound. We understand this. However... does that really require us to return to a time when we were all much more immature and inexperienced?
Sayo
We've grown, and I see no reason why we should undo th—
Yukina
... Don't know...
Lisa
What was that...?
Yukina
I don't know!
Yukina
I don't know what else we could possibly do! And I can't figure out any other way... That's why...!
Yukina
That's why... things have to be this way...!
Lisa
...!
Sayo
Yeah, I don't know either! But I don't want everything we've been through to have been for nothing! This isn't the answer!
Sayo
On a more personal level... I've done a lot of growing, and it's because I joined this band in the first place.
Sayo
I made a promise to my sister. I told her I would do what I had to so that we could walk together side-by-side... That I would keep moving forward...
Sayo
Minato-san... You should feel the same. You got to sing a song that your father holds dear. Are you saying you want to act like none of that ever happened?
Yukina
... I...
Yukina
...
Lisa
Ah, Yukina...!!

Yukina
Ngh... Sniff...
Yukina
(I don't understand any of it... What I'm doing... Why I can't figure any other way to deal with this problem...!)
Yukina
(It's all moving farther and farther out of reach... If this keeps up, I might lose everything...)

Feeling the Rhythm

After running into Kasumi, Yukina is invited to watch Poppin'Party perform.


CiRCLE Stage
 
Yukina
...
Yukina
(Why did I come here?)
Yukina
(It's possible that the answer I've been looking for lies within that "something" that I felt when I heard Toyama-san and the others play...)
Yukina
(Maybe, without realizing it, I came here looking for that answer.)
Yukina
That must have been hard to look at. Sorry you had to witness such a thing.
Kasumi
N-no, it's okay! Are you alright, Yukina-senpai?
Yukina
Yes... I've calmed down a bit.
Kasumi
... Uhm! You should come to our show!
Arisa
Wh-what?! Kasumi, how could you have possibly come to that conclusion?!
Kasumi
I wanna help her out, but there's no way I'd be able to give her good advice...
Kasumi
We... may not be as good as Roselia, but I'm sure if you come watch us, you'll feel a lot better!
Yukina
Toyama-san...
Kasumi
S-sorry... I know she's asking for a lot... If you can't come, that's okay too...!
The Show
 
Kasumi
Hello, everyone~!! We're Poppin'Party!
Kasumi
Time to get this thing started! Let's go~!
Yukina
...
Yukina
(They're much better musicians than the last time I watched them. And their playing comes together fairly well.)
Kasumi
...~♪
After The Show
 
Kasumi
Yukina-senpai~!!
Yukina
Toyama-san, nicely done.
Kasumi
How was our performance? Did you feel the sparkling and the heart-pounding?
Tae
Mhm, I did!
Arisa
Nobody asked you, O-Tae!
Tae
But if we don't feel that way, then there's no way for us to communicate that feeling to the people listening, so... it's important.
Yukina
Did you say "we"?
Yukina
Tell me, what kind of feelings exactly do you all bring with you onto the stage?
Arisa
L-look! You guys made Yukina-senpai mad with all your messing around!
Yukina
I'm not mad. Just curious.
Tae
"I love Poppin'Party!" That's what I feel when I play.
Kasumi
Mhm! Same! And how I love the other members. That helps me be all sparkling and heart-pounding... Then I try to put that feeling into the song. I hope the people in the crowd can hear it...
Kasumi
I want everyone in the audience to feel the sparkling and heart-pounding Poppin'Party has to give!
Tae
Arisa, you agree, right? You love Poppin'Party!
Arisa
I-I guess...
Kasumi
Ehehe, so everyone's on the same page ♪
Yukina
Ah...!
Kasumi
Yukina-senpai?
Yukina
Oh, don't mind me. You showed me something very important today. Thank you, Toyama-san.
Kasumi
Y-you're welcome! By the way, we'd love to go to another one of Roselia's concerts!
Yukina
Yeah... That'd be nice.
Walking Home
 
Yukina
(I've never thought about it... About how the others feel when they're performing.)
Yukina
(I've never bothered to think whether or not we were feeling the same thing when we played.)
Yukina
(To bring back our sound... we may need to restore the pride that comes with being Roselia.)
Yukina
(But... how...?)
Yukina
So close, yet... so far...
Neo-Aspect Event Story Chapter 10
Giving Precious Feelings Form

Unable to bring herself to attend band practice, Ako asks Tomoe for advice...


Udagawa Residence
 
Ako
Sigh...
Tomoe
Ako, what's been going on with band rehearsals?
Ako
Ah, Sis... Actually...
Tomoe
Oh, okay~. And so it's been hard to go, huh?
Ako
Mhm... I know what I'm doing isn't right, but still...
Tomoe
Ako, do you like Roselia?
Ako
Huh...? Y-yeah, I love Roselia!
Tomoe
And the members?
Ako
Yes, of course! Why do you ask?
Tomoe
Hmm~? I was just making sure. The other girls of Afterglow and I love the band and each other so much, that we've had times where things didn't go so well because of it.
Tomoe
Is it possible that Roselia's going through something like that right now?
Ako
You mean... everyone loving the band?
Tomoe
Yeah. And it could be tripping you guys up. For times like this, I bet if you all just scream, "I love Roselia," your problem would be solved.
Ako
Ugh~, what are you talking about~?!
Tomoe
Ahaha, sorry! I'm just kidding! Half kidding, actually. If you all tell each other how precious the band is to you, and that you feel like it's the place you belong...
Tomoe
I bet it'll naturally turn back to the way it was before.
Ako
Are you sure about that...?
Tomoe
I'm telling you...! Oh, I know! If you don't think you'll be able to put your feelings into words, then~... why don't you try putting them into something else?
Tomoe
Like with Ran, she's bad at telling others how she feels, so she'll communicate that through her songs and poetry. So you could do that kind of thing.
Ako
I don't know if I could write something like that~...
Tomoe
Let's see~... Ah, what if you and Rinko-san make outfits together?
Ako
Oh, outfits...!

Rinko's Room
 
Rinko
(Even without going to rehearsal... I keep thinking about Roselia...)
Rinko
(Ah... These threads are coming loose... I'll have to fix it...)
Rinko
...
Rinko
(This outfit is special to me... It allows us to be Roselia... I wish I could wear it again...)
Rinko
Ah...!
Rinko
A message...? It's from Ako-chan...
Ako
"Rin-rin! Let's bring Roselia back!"
Rinko
Ah... She must mean...
Rinko
"Ako-chan... I was just thinking the same thing as you."
Rinko
"... In that case... what do you think of this theme...?"
Ako
"Hmm~, I think that might be too cute... Can't we come up with something that's more Lisa-nee's style, something cooler?!"
Rinko
"Fufu..."
Ako
"What happened, Rin-rin?"
Rinko
"I was just thinking... You've been calling the others 'cool' since the very beginning..."
Ako
"Why wouldn't I~?! Every single member is super cool! That's why I want this outfit to be something that can show that off!"
Rinko
"Yeah... I agree..."
Rinko
"I love sitting here... and thinking of the others. It really warms my heart..."
Ako
"Mhm, I do too!"
Rinko
"Ako-chan... Let's bring Roselia back... Together...!"
Ako
"Yeah!"
Neo-Aspect Event Story Chapter 11
To Restore Roselia

Ako and Rinko start making new costumes for Roselia. Meanwhile, Sayo and Lisa practice in the studio...


Shirokane Residence
 
Rinko's Room
 
Ako
Ah! Wouldn't it be better if we put this part like this, Rin-rin?
Rinko
Mhm... That could work... You have a good eye, Ako-chan.
Ako
I knew it! And what about the color? Black?
Rinko
Sure... We'll have black be our foundation... And then I want to add some other colors to it...
Ako
That would make it look much different than our old outfits, right?
Rinko
Maybe... You... don't want that...?
Ako
No, I didn't say that! I'm actually really excited for these! Let's make the best outfits we can, Rin-rin!
Rinko
Mhm... Yeah.
Ako
... Huh? Wait, mine has less cloth than everyone else's. Is that right?
Rinko
Y-yes... It's important that you're able to move freely... So yours requires less material... Length-wise and for the sleeves...
Ako
Hm? Why do those things have to be shorter?
Rinko
Think about when you try to do a crossover... and you want to hit the hi-hat and the snare at the same time... Whenever you're wearing long sleeves... the fabric just gets in the way...
Ako
What?! You were watching for that?!
Rinko
M-mhm... Only... sometimes.
Ako
Rin-rin... Thank you!!
Rinko
It's no big deal... We'll be making them... so that it's easy for everyone to perform... Same as last time.
Ako
...
Rinko
Ako-chan... Is something wrong?
Ako
Nuh-uh... I was just thinking of all the ways that you're amazing...
Rinko
Like... what?
Ako
Like right now, the way you're thinking of outfits that are perfect for everyone, and how awesome you are at the piano... If only I could do something to help Roselia too...
Rinko
I think... what you're doing right now... will help us all out, you know.
Ako
Rin-rin...! Whatever you need, I'm there! Just let me know how I can help!
Rinko
... Okay, thanks.
Ako
Ah, but I'm no good with a sewing machine, just so you know. The last time I used one at school, the teacher got mad at me and said the thing I made looked all twisty and turn-y like the Nile River!
Rinko
O-oh...
Studio
 
Lisa
Hey, Sayo~... Are you sure we should just be here practicing like this?
Sayo
If the others aren't going to come to rehearsal, then it's up to us to preserve Roselia's sound, right?
Sayo
I think the next time we play, these songs won't have a chance of coming together if no one is practicing them...
Sayo
Even if we've lost the intensity that used to accompany our sound... This is still my personal sound... I have no choice but to play it.
Lisa
You really have changed, Sayo. Looks like that promise you and Hina made was a pretty big deal.
Sayo
I suppose you could say that... That's why I can't allow myself to stop here.
Lisa
You can't stop...?
Lisa
Sayo...! I think I figured it out!
Sayo
Figured what out?
Lisa
How to bring Roselia back!!
Sayo
I see... In other words, we were all working together as Roselia, but we all had our own personal goals in mind.
Lisa
I think so. As a band, we were supposed to be trying to reach Future World Fes, but...
Lisa
Were we all actually striving for that? I feel like we were only trying to fulfill our own goals while also being a part of Roselia.
Lisa
We were all members, but maybe no one was actually looking out for Roselia as a whole...
Sayo
...
Lisa
Sayo? Sorry, I'm not very good at explaining this sort of thing...
Sayo
No, I think you got it right. I continue playing the guitar so that I can find my own sound... So that I can keep my promise to Hina...
Sayo
And that makes me wonder... Was I actually keeping the band itself in mind while doing so...?
Lisa
The same goes for me. I said I was trying to help Roselia, but really, Yukina was the main one I was keeping an eye out for...
Lisa
Even though we're all part of the same Roselia, I think we all had our eye on something different... Our goals weren't the same.
Lisa
Remember when Rinko stormed out during rehearsal? Maybe that's what she meant when she said no one was listening.
Sayo
It's possible that Shirokane-san was the person paying the most attention to Roselia as a group.
Lisa
Ako did the same. She's always talked about how Roselia is "super cool." So the music we create when we all play together... I think she could be the one who treasures it the most.
Sayo
Seems like we'll need those two to help us out if we want to bring Roselia back.
Neo-Aspect Event Story Chapter 12
Pride in the Blue Rose

As Ako and Rinko continue making Roselia's new costumes, they get some visitors. Who could it be?


Shirokane Residence
 
Rinko's Room
 
Rinko
The outfits...
Ako
Are done!!
Rinko
We did it, Ako-chan... Thank you for all your help...
Ako
I should be thanking you! While I was making these, it made me realize again just how much I love Roselia!
Ako
I can't wait for everyone to put these on!
Rinko
Mhm... I'd like... to see them... try them out too...
Ako
Hm...? Is that someone at the door?
Rinko
I'm sure... it's just a delivery or something... I don't think it's for me...
Lisa & Sayo
Heyya~! Hello.
Rinko
Huh...?!
Ako
Lisa-nee!! Sayo-san!!
Lisa
Sorry to drop in on you like this. I just didn't think we'd be able to get a hold of you otherwise.
Sayo
We heard from Tomoe-san that you two have been making outfits here recently.
Ako
O-oh, I see...
Rinko
Uhm... W-we-...!
Lisa
We know why you two ran out during rehearsal the way you did.
Sayo
Which is precisely why we would like your help.
Ako
What are you guys talking about?
Rinko
We were considerate... of the band...?
Sayo
Yep. You two were the only ones who were looking out for Roselia this entire time.
Lisa
We think that in order to bring Roselia back, we all need to become more mindful of the group once again...
Lisa
It's actually really embarrassing to admit this now since I was supposed to be a member of the entire band...
Rinko
W-we've been thinking too... this whole time... about how to get Roselia back...
Sayo
Oh, really?
Rinko
Yes... We want to continue being together... That's why Ako-chan and I... have been here making outfits...
Ako
While we were doing that, we just kept thinking of you guys! And that was a lot of fun... It made me wanna be a part of Roselia even more...
Ako
I know I'm not supposed to think of it as being fun... That I'm supposed to take our music seriously...
Ako
But I just love Roselia too much...!
Sayo
I think that sentiment will be very valuable to the group.
Sayo
It means that when you think of us, it fills you with pride.
Ako
Y-yeah! I think so too! Roselia makes me feel proud!
Rinko
I-I feel the same as Ako-chan... The band is special to me...!
Lisa
Ako, Rinko, thank you for helping us realize something so important.
Rinko
D-don't thank us... We didn't do anything... Besides...
Rinko
I think the reason you two wanted Roselia back... is that... you love it...
Lisa
Hmm... Yeah, I think so. And I'm sure we didn't realize it before because we weren't paying attention to the band as a whole.
Lisa
I'll have to do better.
Sayo
Certainly... I have some reflecting to do as well.
Lisa
Say... Do you all think Yukina loves Roselia too?
Ako
There's no question about it...! I don't know why... but I'm sure she does!
Ako
I know she's really strict, but she's only like that because she believes in us, right?
Ako
It's because she believes that Roselia has what it takes to be better, isn't it?
Rinko
Can we all... go talk to Yukina-san... one more time...?
Rinko
We'll tell her... that we all... take pride in being Roselia...
Neo-Aspect Event Story Chapter 13
Roselia's Yukina Minato

Yukina continues to practice, singing alone. Just as she appears to be lost in the darkness, suddenly...


Studio
 
Yukina
...
Yukina
(I sing and I sing, but I still don't know. How am I supposed to bring back our pride in Roselia?)
Yukina
(It's like I'm surrounded by darkness and can't find my way out...)
Sayo
(... Oh? That's...)
Sayo
(If she came to the studio to practice, she must be working pretty hard to find something.)
Yukina
Ah...
Sayo
Solo practice?
Yukina
... I still don't know how to restore Roselia, so I came to sing... But it seems like that was pointless.
Sayo
I think... that you and I are alike.
Sayo
You gave me the push I needed. Now might be the time for me to give you yours.
Sayo
While I pondered our current issue, I realized that something inside me had changed.
Sayo
I'm pretty sure the former me wouldn't have bothered trying to deal with this problem. If that's the case, then why would I be trying so hard to persuade you? Why would I be giving the band so much thought?
Sayo
It's because I'm Sayo Hikawa of Roselia.
Yukina
Of Roselia...
Sayo
And that push you gave me was exactly the thing that made me who I am. A person who doesn't compare herself to her younger sister... A person who has their own sound...
Sayo
Little by little, I changed from the me who would always try to outdo Hina, to the me who is Roselia's guitarist.
This Time, I Will
Sayo
The same is true for you.
Yukina
For me...?
Sayo
There's no question... You are no longer the Yukina Minato who is only trying to follow in her father's footsteps.
Yukina
Ah...!
Sayo
Take time to reconsider who you are. If you do that, you should find your answer.
Yukina
(Who I am...? I'm the same person I've always been.)
Yukina
I...
The Next Day
 
Studio
 
Ako
We have to keep practicing while Yukina-san is away!
Sayo
It's Minato-san. I know she'll return.
Sayo
(I just know it...)
Rinko
O-of course...!
Rinko
(Hikawa-san sounds so certain... It's a weird feeling, but it makes me believe what she's saying is right...)
Rinko
(It's a different kind of strength... from Imai-san...)
Yukina
Everyone...!
Ako
Yukina-san!
Rinko
...!
Yukina
Everyone...
Yukina
...
Sayo
...
Yukina
...
Lisa
Y-Yukina...!! Yukina...! You know...!!
Sayo
... Imai-san.
Lisa
...
Yukina
... I've been doing a lot of thinking about the letdown that was SMS. I wondered why the audience members didn't stay. I wondered what about us now is different from before.
Yukina
... I figured if we wanted to revive our old sound, we would need to return to being the old us. But I was wrong.
Yukina
Then I thought... if we're to bring back that sound, we would need to bring back our pride in Roselia. That was my mindset, and I spent a lot of time thinking, but my understanding was insufficient...
Yukina
... I had assumed that I wouldn't be able to face you all until I could bring back that pride. However...
Yukina
I am... Yukina Minato of Roselia...
Yukina
That's why it doesn't matter whether that pride is lost or how pitiful I may be. I want to be Yukina Minato of Roselia...! Please allow me to stay here so I can serve that purpose!
Yukina
After all... Being here to sing... is the only thing I can do...
Lisa
... Yukina...!
Rinko
Yukina-san, you are not pitiful...! There's no way you could possibly be...!
Rinko
You spent all that time... thinking about Roselia... and worrying about how to restore our pride...
Rinko
Someone who strained so much to finally reach a breakthrough... could never be pitiful...! However...
Rinko
We are all Roselia...! If you don't know the answer... we can look for it... together...!
Lisa
And that feeling of wanting to be Yukina Minato of Roselia... That's where your pride lies...!
Sayo
You never lost it in the first place. You were able to spend all this time worrying because you've always had it.
Ako
I-I think that Roselia is still the coolest band ever! And there's no way we'd be able to keep that up if all five of us didn't stick together!!
Yukina
... You're all willing to take me back... despite me being like this... I'm sorry...
Lisa
Actually, Yukina, we made the same mistake. We weren't looking out for the band this whole time.
Rinko
Now... we've finally... become Roselia.
Ako
Mhm... Yeah...! I love Roselia!!

The Clock's Hands Begin to Turn

Their pride as a band restored, the members of Roselia meet to express their true feelings.


One Week Later
 
Studio
 
Lisa
Wait... You made this song that fast?!
Yukina
Yes... I wanted to take that feeling of hoping that we can continue to be Roselia and turn it into a song.
Ako
Whoa...! It's so cool! I wanna play it now!
Sayo
It is quite impressive. For once, Udagawa-san and I are on the same page. I'd like to perform a run-through as soon as possible as well.
Ako
What~?! Did you have to say "for once"...?
Lisa
Ahhaha! Sayo's just embarrassed, that's all. Let's get to practicing so we can have it ready for our next show.
Rinko
Okay...! We may not have much time, but... this song... can represent the new us...
Yukina
Starting today, we need to be more focused as we set our sights on our next performance.
Ako
Okay~!
Lisa
... Uhm, actually, I have something I want everyone to eat.
Ako
Wow...! Cookies!
Yukina
Did... you make these, Lisa?
Lisa
Not exactly. Sayo and I made them together!
Sayo
...
Rinko
Oh... Hikawa-san too...?
Lisa
Boy, I was so nervous about when I should bring them out. Now just felt like the best time, so...
Sayo
We can expect the cookies to have a positive effect on our ability to perform, so we figured having them before we practice would be ideal.
Yukina
Thank you... Mmm, they're good.
Ako
Yeah! Really, really good! I'm glad we can have cookies again! Thank you, Lisa-nee, Sayo-san!
Lisa
There you have it. You did it, Sayo!
Sayo
Now, let us start rehearsal before the effect wears off.
Rinko
Okay...!


Walking Home
 
Ako
Yukina-san, how did I do today?
Yukina
Not bad, I'd say. About those problem spots though...
Lisa
... Doesn't it feel like it's been forever since we've had a moment like this?
Sayo
It does.
Rinko
I feel... so relieved... now that everything is... back to normal for us...
Sayo
I agree. As soon as Minato-san returned, we started rehearsal again right away. That was thanks to Imai-san making arrangements for our next concert.
Lisa
Well~, you know, I was just reminded that I'm suited to take care of that kind of job.
Sayo
You may be fulfilling the same role, but the basis underlying those actions should be completely different than before.
Lisa
Yeah, I think it is! Maybe I've done some growing myself this time. Still, you thought you were so sneaky, Sayo.
Sayo
What do you mean?
Lisa
You're the one who brought Yukina back in the end, right? You thought I wouldn't realize that~?
Sayo
That wasn't important... The point was that I didn't coddle her and make it easy by giving her the answer.
Lisa
Ugh~, so rude~! But... thank you. You're right. If I had been the one to do it, it would have been pointless.
Rinko
It was so powerful... so amazing... when you said you knew Yukina-san would return...
Sayo
I owed Minato-san. I simply wanted to return a favor.
Lisa
Haha, there you go being all embarrassed again! I have to say though, a big part of why we were able to move forward was you, Sayo!
Rinko
Move... forward...
Sayo
It wasn't just me. It was thanks to everyon—
Rinko
That's it...!
Lisa
R-Rinko...?
Rinko
Uhm...! C-could I possibly... ask you all... to return the new outfits I made tomorrow...?
Sayo
Is there something wrong with them?
Rinko
No! There's... one more thing... I wanted to add... to help the outfits stand out...
Rinko
I thought of it... just now... Ah! The store might be closing soon...!
Rinko
I-I have to go to the accessory shop... Sorry, I-I'll be leaving now...!
Lisa
Huh?! R-Rinko?!
Sayo
... I suppose we'll have to tell Minato-san and Udagawa-san what she said about the outfits ourselves.
Lisa
Yep, let's do that. Can't wait to see what sort of idea she came up with this time.

We Are Roselia!

Roselia takes the stage once more.
Together, their music echoes throughout the venue!

Kasumi
Ohh~... I'm getting so nervous...!
Arisa
What do you have to be nervous about...? Roselia's the one performing today.
Kasumi
But still! Yukina-senpai looked like she was hurting the other day... I'm just worried.
Arisa
Yeah, that's true...
Kasumi
Yukina-senpai, Roselia... Good luck~...!

Yukina
Rinko, did you bring the new outfits for us?
Rinko
Yes. These are them...
Sayo
They're beautifully made, as always.
Lisa
Yep! 'Kay, let's get changed~!
Ako
Ohhh~!! Awesome! Everyone looks amazing! They look super-duper good on you all~!!
Rinko
Mhm... Good thing we worked so hard... all the way till the end... to get them done...
Lisa
I was really shocked when you said you had to go to the accessory shop and took off~.
Rinko
Sorry... I just had to... include these... as part of the theme...
Yukina
Clocks and gears...? Not the type of motif we usually go for.
Rinko
Time for us... stopped for a moment... However... the clock's hands... are in motion... once again...
Rinko
I want us to move forward together... That's what I felt... when I decided on this design...
Yukina
A wonderful motif to include. I'm sure we will treasure these as outfits that link together our past selves and our future selves.
Ako
I wanna take these out there and show the audience this super cool Roselia already~!!
Sayo
You don't have to be so hasty. The performance is about to start.
Lisa
Alrighty, let's give them the best show we can!!

Yukina
... We are Roselia.
Yukina
Here's our first song.
Kasumi
Mmm~!! Roselia is just as cool as always! Aren't they amazing, Arisa?!
Arisa
Yukina-senpai seems to have a good rhythm going too.
Kasumi
Yeah!

This next song is a new one. It was made, not by one of us, but by all of us, and we'd like for you to hear it.

(I felt a sense of guilt when it came to singing... I was allowed to sing despite not being ready...)
Yukina
(And still, I couldn't say I liked what I was doing! But I figured one day I would... That's why I kept singing.)
Yukina
(The road ahead wasn't clear to me though. Somewhere, in the corner of my heart, I continued to feel as if something was off about my sentiment toward singing...)
Yukina
(Now I might be able to say I like it, just a little bit.)

Yukina
(And with this sound that the five of us create, I shall sing!!)

Sayo
... Our playing today was... unbelievable...
Rinko
Yeah... I agree...
Ako
My hands are still shaking...!
Lisa
What... is this feeling...?
Yukina
... Up until we got on stage, I was afraid.
Yukina
Should we tell the audience that we are Roselia? Are we truly Roselia at this point in time? Are we sure we won't just drift apart again?
Yukina
But singing made me think that we are indeed Roselia.
Yukina
So let's keep playing... and let's carry that passion, that pride, while we do it.
Lisa
...~! Yukinaaa~!!
Yukina
Lisa?! Wh-what's with the hugging...?!
Lisa
I-I had too! S-sorry... I've just been so worried about you...!
Lisa
I knew I had to change and I couldn't keep coddling you, so I did my best not too! But the truth is that I've been wondering if you were okay...!
Lisa
I'm so, so happy... that you came back to us...! When I think about how nice it is to have all five of us back together, I'm overwhelmed with all these emotions I've been holding in...! Ngh...!!
Ako
I'm glad too! To be able to play such cool music with such cool people... It fills me with lots and lots of pride!
Yukina
You two...
Yukina
... We can't have you crying all day... We have to talk about how to improve our performance for next time.
Sayo
That's right. There are many things we can all do better.
Rinko
Fufu... Okay...!
Lisa
Alrighty, guys... You know where we need to go. Shall we get to it?
