Sakyo
Looks like everyone's here. Let's get started.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
All right!
Thanks for making the time for this meeting, everyone.
We're here so we can talk about the next week's event celebrating our first anniversary as the renewed Mankai Company.
Banri profile
Banri
Isn't everythin' for the party already set?
Tsumugi profile
Tsumugi
All preperations have been going smoothly so far.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
They are, but I was thinking it'd be nice if all of us surprised Izumi with a collective gift at the party.
Tenma profile
Tenma
Huh, so that's why you called us here.
Kazunari profile
Kazunari
I already gave her a personal thank-you gift, but a present from all of us would be awesome, too!
Tenma profile
Tenma
What? When did you give her one?
Kazunari profile
Kazunari
Huh? You didn't give her anything, Tenten?
Tenma profile
Tenma
I, uh, well...
Yuki profile
Yuki
Oh, please. Stop pretending as if you didn't. I bet you thought you were the only one who gave her a gift.
Tenma profile
Tenma
Hey! Keep your assumptions to yourself!
Misumi profile
Misumi
I gave her something, too!
Azuma profile
Azuma
I guess everyone had the same idea.
Tasuku profile
Tasuku
Still, I'm sure she'd appreciate a collective present from all of us.
Hisoka profile
Hisoka
...Should we all pitch in a little money?
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
We'd end up with quite the budget since there's twenty of us.
Juza profile
Juza
Just gotta figure out what to get her.
Omi profile
Omi
I'm pretty sure we already gave her a pretty wide range of stuff.
Citron profile
Citron
We could fold her a thousand origami cranes!
Taichi profile
Taichi
I don't think it's the right occasion for that!
Muku profile
Muku
Umm... How about we make her a message book?
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
What would that be like?
Muku profile
Muku
One of my classmates is about to transfer schools, so we each wrote a page-long message in a notebook as a farewell present for them.
They loved it, so maybe we could do the same for Izumi.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
That's not a bad idea.
Homare profile
Homare
It would indeed be more heartfelt than something that is simply store-bought.
Masumi profile
Masumi
My feelings for her can't be reduced to just one page... I'll need at least ten books.
Citron profile
Citron
Even one book is not enough?!
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Even if it was one book, I bet it'd be as thick as a dictionary...
Yuki profile
Yuki
I'm pretty sure she doesn't need that cluttering her room.
Muku profile
Muku
U-uh, yeah... It'll be a lot easier for her to get through if we just stick to one book from all of us.
Itaru profile
Itaru
Why don't we have a battle to see who can win Izumi over using only a single page as a rule?
Masumi profile
Masumi
Huh?!
I'm not going to lose to any of you. I'll cram my ten books' worth of feeling onto one sheet...
Itaru profile
Itaru
Yep. GL with that.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
You've gotten really good at handling Masumi, Itaru.
Itaru profile
Itaru
It's child's play, really.
Kazunari profile
Kazunari
Let's go buy her a book and get started ASAP!
Muku profile
Muku
Great idea. We can take turns writing in it starting with the Spring Troup. Please make sure to have your messages done before the party.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Okay!
Citron profile
Citron
Okey dokey!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Hey, guys.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Uh-oh!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Huh? Why are you all here?
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Crap, we need to think of something...
Tenma profile
Tenma
Wh-what's wrong with being in here? We're just playing red rover!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Red rover, red rover...!
Misumi profile
Misumi
Send Taichi right over!
Taichi profile
Taichi
Y-yeah! Here I come!
Banri profile
Banri
Couldn't come up with anythin' better...?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Uh, okay? Looks like you're having the time of your lives.
Oh, almost forgot. It's a good thing you're all here.
Some contractors are going to be working on the theater starting tomorrow, so you won't be able to go inside for a while.
Itaru profile
Itaru
Contractors? What for?
Izumi profile
Izumi
I'm having them do a safety check on our equipment.
Itaru profile
Itaru
Makes sense. Our theater's as beat up and neglected as an outdated console...
Citron profile
Citron
At night, it looks like some haunted and abandoned ruins.
Banri profile
Banri
And sittin' in those chairs for too long's a literal pain in the ass.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Let's save up so we can do some major remodeling!
Homare profile
Homare
We should replace those chairs with leather sofas of the highest quality.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Keep dreaming. There's no way we could afford that with our budget.
