Izumi
Hmm... What should we do?
Tsuzuru
Hmm...I dunno.
Izumi
Haven't been this stumped in a while.
Tsuzuru
You and me, both.
Izumi
We really lucked out with choosing Alice in Wonderland for the Spring play. It was a classic with just enough of a twist to keep it fresh. How can we top that?
Tsuzuru
Beats me. There aren't many themes that have the potential for that kind of impact.
Tsuzuru
And after writing five plays straight, the ol' fountain of inspiration is starting to run a little dry.
Tsuzuru
Or maybe it's more like, I've got ideas but I can't seem to settle on just one?
Izumi
I get you. We want something that plays to the Summer Troupe's unique skills, but different enough from their first show to keep thinks interesting.
Tsuzuru
Exactly. So...what should we do?
Izumi
...I asked you first.
Tsuzuru
Hmm...
Izumi
Hmmm...
Izumi
You know what, we're not getting anywhere just sitting around like this. Let's just leave here for today and sleep on it. We can meet up again tomorrow.
Tsuzuru
Yeah... I guess that's for the best.


Tsuzuru
Was that...a cat?
Izumi
Doesn't seem like just a cat from all the commotion coming from the courtyard.
Misumi
Here, kitty, kitty!
Muku
Ahahaha!
Izumi
Is that the Summer Troupe?


Tenma
Gyaaaah!
Izumi
What on earth is gong on out there?
Tsuzuru
No clue. Wanna go see?


Tenma
Ouch... What's that cat's problem?! How dare it scratch me! An actor's body is the tool of his trade!
Yuki
Of course it's gonna get mad if you try to yank it into the air like that, you brute.
Misumi
Yuki's right. You gotta be nice and gentle.
Tenma
I WAS being gentle.
Yuki
Looks like your social awkwardness extends beyond the human race.
Tenma
Say that again, I dare you!
Izumi
What are you guys doing out here?
Kazunari
Ooh, Tsuzuroon and Izumi! Meeting over already? Nice!
Tsuzuru
Whose cat is that?
Muku
He's a stray that's been hanging around the courtyard a lot recently.
Izumi
Aww, he's so cute!
Kazunari
Check this out, Izumi!
Izumi
Hm? Oh, were you drawing pictures in the dirt?
Izumi
Is this the kitty? That's adorable! Looks just like him!
Kazunari
I know, right?
Misumi
Kaz's so good at drawing!
Izumi
I knew you did design work but I didn't know you could draw cute stuff like this too.
Muku
He even drew me a picture book the other day!
Izumi
Oh wow. That's amazing, Kazunari!
Kazunari
Making picture books has kinda been my thing lately.
Kazunari
It's fun to be able to design everything myself, from the characters to the book bindings, y'know?
Kazunari
Hey, maybe I'll make you one too, Izumi!
Izumi
Really?
Kazunari
For sure. What kind of story would you want?
Izumi
Hmm.. How about...a story about the King of the Curry Kingdom?
Kazunari
Geez, you're really serious about curry!
Kazunari
I'm not so hot at coming up with stories, though. Think you could help a guy out, Tsuzuroon?
Tsuzuru
...
Kazunari
Uh...Tsuzuroon? You good?
Tsuzuru
That's it!
Izumi
What's it?!
Tsuzuru
How about an adventure story about a pair of cats!
Izumi
Cats? Not the Curry King?
Tsuzuru
No, listen! Cats have been in lately. People love them! Plus, it'd be our first time having an all animal cast, so there's some novelty in that.
Izumi
Oh, you're talking about the play... You know, that could work!
Izumi
If any group could pull off acting in cat ears, it'd be the Summer Troupe. Honestly, this theme was made for them, if you ask me. I'm all for it!
Tsuzuru
Cool! I'll get started right away, then!
Izumi
Go get 'em, Tsuzuru!
Yuki
What's this about cats?
Kazunari
Didn't really follow what just happened, but I guess that's our next theme?
Izumi
Yep! An adventure story! About cats!
Muku
A play about cats?! That sounds adorable!
Misumi
Prrow! Meow!
Tenma
Cats, huh...?


Tsuzuru
Ahem. I give you...the script for the Summer Troupe's second show.
Tsuzuru
I titled it...The Great Sardine Search!
Tenma
Wow. You're actually alive this time, Tsuzuru. Color me surprised.
Izumi
Yeah, usually you're on the brink of passing out after writing a script.
Tsuzuru
And now...farewell...
Yuki
Man down.
Tenma
It was only a matter of time...
Izumi
Uh...Tsuzuru?
Misumi
And here lies Tsuzuru. Rest in peace.
Muku
Misumi, d-don't hold a funeral for him!
Izumi
How about we let Tsuzuru rest for a bit while we read through the script?
Izumi
...
Izumi
...
Tenma
Me...ow...
Yuki
You hit your head or something?
Tenma
It's in the script!
Yuki
Huh, you're right.
Izumi
There are a lot of cat puns in here, too.
Izumi
(Looks like the script this time around is an adventure story set in a fantasy world of talking cats.)
Izumi
(It's a little different from the first Summer Troupe show, but the comedy's on the same level.)
Tsuzuru
Ugh...hegh...
Izumi
Tsuzuru! Should you be sitting up already?!
Tsuzuru
I forgot...something important...
Izumi
Yeah?
Tsuzuru
Cat ears...are a must. Non-negotiable.
Tenma
What's so important about that?!
Yuki
Bet he's still bitter that I made him wear bunny ears for the Alice show.
Tenma
Man, cat ears, though. There goes my reputation.
Muku
We're all gonna be kitty cats together!
Yuki
So I have to make a bunch of cat ears and tails again? That took a crazy amount of time...
Kazunari
Kitty ears? I'm so down! Betcha I'mma get 1000 likes on the 'Blam! At least!
Misumi
Cat ears?! Yay! Triangles!
Muku
I'm so exited for my catboy debut!
Izumi
Okay, everybody give it a read and then we'll decide the casting after.
