Part 1
Izumi profile
Izumi
And that's a wrap! great job, everyone!
Crew member Thank you! And thanks for helping us out so many days in a row, Izumi. It's been a huge help.
Izumi profile
Izumi
It was no problem at all. I've been learning a lot myself by helping out here.
Crew member We hope you'll help during our next production too.}}
Izumi profile
Izumi
Yeah. I look forward to it!
Izumi profile
Izumi
(And that concludes my work assisting with today's performance. Time to get dinner ready before my meeting. And after that, there's practice...)
Izumi profile
Izumi
(Tomorrow I'm going to be helping with another troupe and then I've got another meeting tomorrow night...)
Izumi profile
Izumi
...Yeah, maybe I scheduled too many things this week.
(Later)
Izumi profile
Izumi
I'm back.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Welcome back, Izumi!
Omi profile
Omi
Welcome back.
Homare profile
Homare
A warm welcome home.
Izumi profile
Izumi
...Something smells really good.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Oh, it's Omi! He's baking some treats right now.
Omi profile
Omi
Yeah, I'm making almond and chocolate cookies.
Omi profile
Omi
I also made jello if you're in the mood for something cool instead.
Homare profile
Homare
Jello with fruit in it.
Homare profile
Homare
A masterpiece, indeed. Sweetness enveloped by sweetness.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
You were assisting another troupe today, right?
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
That's awesome!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Thanks, Sakuya.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
But is it just me, or do you look really worn out?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Oh, I'm okay. I'm just more relaxed since I'm at home.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
But you look a bit paler than usual.
Izumi profile
Izumi
I'm fine. I've got to talk with Sakyo about the budget in a bit, anyway.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Don't you think you've been working a bit too much lately? You should give yourself a break.
Homare profile
Homare
I agree. It's very important to give yourself a breather when you need it.
Omi profile
Omi
That's right. You'll be too tired to do anything at all if you work yourself to the bone.
Izumi profile
Izumi
I'm fine, guys! Really, I've been helping out with practices and performances for a while now. And I've always been the healthy type, so-
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Nope.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Huh?
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Sakuya and the others are right. We won't get anywhere if you're passing out from exhaustion.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
We can postpone the meeting until tomorrow.
Izumi profile
Izumi
But, Sakyo...
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Your job as director is to watch over the well-being of everyone in this troupe. Let me remind you that you're part of this troupe, too.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Yeah, but...
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
No buts. Stop being so stubborn and take the night off.
Omi profile
Omi
I'll cook dinner. You've got a busy day again tomorrow, right?
Omi profile
Omi
You should take it easy for tonight at least.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Thanks, guys... I guess I'll have to since you're all so insistent about it.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Let me know if there's anything I can do to help you out. Don't hesitate to call on me when you need me!
Omi profile
Omi
Oh, the cookies are ready. Hang on, I'll bring them out.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Ooh, yum!
Homare profile
Homare
Eating these freshly baked cookies is a special privilege only available to those present at this moment.
Homare profile
Homare
Let us savor its nutty flavor.
Omi profile
Omi
Would you like to have one too, Sakyo? They're fresh out of the oven.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
...Sure. Guess I'll have one.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Oh man! These are amazing!
Omi profile
Omi
I'll get us some tea too.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Thanks, Omi. And thanks for baking these.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Yeah! time to dig in!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Mmm! So yummy!
Homare profile
Homare
Indeed. This sweet smell and chewy texture are truly stirring up poetic inspiration within me!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Yeah, these are great! You never disappoint, Omi.
Omi profile
Omi
I'm glad you like them. They say that sweets can help you when you're tired, so feel free to have as many as you want.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Yeah! Omi's yummy cookies should help revive you, Izumi!

Part 2
Misumi profile
Misumi
Thanks for the food!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Thanks so much for making dinner tonight, Omi.
Omi profile
Omi
No prob. You go ahead and get a good rest tonight, Izumi.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Oh, let me help clean up!
Azuma profile
Azuma
Are you not feeling well tonight, Izumi?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Oh, no, I'm not sick or anything-
Omi profile
Omi
She's been working herself like crazy recently, so we're making her take it easy tonight.
Kazunari profile
Kazunari
Ohhh! That's valid.
Misumi profile
Misumi
Thanks for everything you do, Izumi!
Azuma profile
Azuma
Self-care is definitely important.
Azuma profile
Azuma
I have an idea. How about I sleep with you tonight?
Kazunari profile
Kazunari
Now hold up!
Kazunari profile
Kazunari
If she wants someone to sleep with her tonight, then I could-!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Yeah, no. For both of you.
Kazunari profile
Kazunari
So cold I got the shivers!
Azuma profile
Azuma
That's too bad.
Misumi profile
Misumi
I'll give you a triangle to help you recharge your batteries!
Izumi profile
Izumi
That is certainly some triangle... But what is it?
Azuma profile
Azuma
It seems like some kind of triangle-shaped aroma stone.
Misumi profile
Misumi
It is! And it smells real good! This should get you feeling refreshed in no time, Izumi!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Ohh, thanks! I'll try using it later.
Kazunari profile
Kazunari
Awesome!
Kazunari profile
Kazunari
That's one high class triangle! And here I thought Sumi only collected triangle-shaped junk!
Misumi profile
Misumi
Triangles are life!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Whoa, you're right! It really does smnell nice!
Omi profile
Omi
Okay guys, let's give her some space.
Omi profile
Omi
You know she's tired.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Oh, sorry!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
I hope you have a relaxing evening, Izumi.
Izumi profile
Izumi
No worries! And thank you, guys.
Azuma profile
Azuma
Make sure to take advantage of this and really get some R and R tonight.
(Later)
Izumi profile
Izumi
(...So I said, but it's a bit too early to be going to bed. But now that I have nothing to do, it's like I can't relax.)
Izumi profile
Izumi
I'd feel bad actually working after everyone was so concerned for me...
Izumi profile
Izumi
(Oh yeah! I've got a huge backlog of shows I recorded but never got around to watching.)
Izumi profile
Izumi
...I guess it won't hurt to take the time to catch up on some TV.
TV Narration "4-year-old Yuta is going to be running his very first errand for his mommy! Will he manage to succeed in his shopping mission?"
Izumi profile
Izumi
(Aww, look at the way he's bravely trying to hold back his tears. He reminds me of Muku.)
Izumi profile
Izumi
(And this next kid reminds me of Sakuya. Look at those big eyes and how cheerful he is!)
TV Narration "Kaede misses his mom, but he won't give up! He doesn't cry, even after tripping and falling!"
Izumi profile
Izumi
You can do it! You've come so far...!
(Later)
Izumi profile
Izumi
Wah... Those kids were so courageous and now I'm crying...
Izumi profile
Izumi
They were so devoted to achieving their goals... okay, now I'm crying WAY too much...
Izumi profile
Izumi
Where're the tissues... Huh? It's empty?
Izumi profile
Izumi
I think we should have another box around here somewhere.
(Scene change)
Izumi profile
Izumi
Maybe here??
??? Izumi..?

Part 3
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Izumi...?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Sakuya? What are you doing up at this hour?
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
I was practicing on my own.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
What about you though? I thought you already went to bed.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Oh, about that, I...!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Izumi... Are you crying?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Huh?
Izumi profile
Izumi
(Oh right, I was crying about those adorable kids!)
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Did something happen?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Um, uh...
Izumi profile
Izumi
(I can't tell him I was crying over some TV show, way too embarassing... Okay, time to make something up.)
Izumi profile
Izumi
No, I'm fine. It's just...
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
.....
Izumi profile
Izumi
Sakuya?
Izumi profile
Izumi
(...Ok, why is he so close now?)
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Please don't cry...
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
I may not be able to bake delicious cookies like Omi and I may not be smart like Sakyo.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
But I want to help you out in any way I can.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Don't you think you can depend on me? Or...
Choice 1: I depend on you a lot. Choice 2: Now it's gonna be even more awkward to tell him...
Izumi profile
Izumi
O-Of course I do! (Oh dear, now it's gonna be even more awkward to tell him...)
Izumi profile
Izumi
I know how hard you work as the leader of the Spring Troupe. I depend on you a lot.
Izumi profile
Izumi
But, uh...
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
...I knew it. I'm pretty unreliable, aren't I.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
B-But...! I'll work hard to that one day you'll see me as someone you can always depend on!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Then let me help you! I want to be there for you even more than before! So please don't try to bottle up your emotions!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
I hate the thought of being unable to do anything when you're feeling sad. I promise that one day I'll be more mature and then I'll-
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
That's why-
Izumi profile
Izumi
Look, sorry Sakuya, but you've got the wrong idea- W-Wait! Sakuya, you've got the wrong idea-
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Izumi..?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Listen, the truth is that...
(After Izumi’s explanation)
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
You were crying because of a TV show?!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Yeah...
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
I'm so sorry! I completely misunderstood!
Izumi profile
Izumi
It's okay! Really, I'm the one who should be apologizing. I just felt so embarrassed admitting that I was crying over 4 year olds on TV.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Don't blame yourself! I can't believe I just jumped to conclusions like that.
Izumi profile
Izumi
But... I was happy to hear how you felt. You sounded really cool just now, you know.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
What?!
Izumi profile
Izumi
I know I said this already, but I do know I can count on you. I promise that I'll keep you in mind next time I have something on my mind, okay?
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
O-Of course!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Feel free to come talk to me anytime you need it!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
I'll be your pillar of strength whenever you need it!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Thank you. And the same goes for you, you know. I'm here if you ever need a listening ear.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Okay!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
A-Anyway, make sure you get some sleep!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Um, and if you're having trouble falling asleep, I wouldn't mind lying down with you until you do...
Izumi profile
Izumi
I'm fine! Really!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
You sure?
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Well, feel free to let me know if there's ever a time when you're having trouble falling asleep.
Izumi profile
Izumi
...Yeah, okay. Thanks.
Izumi profile
Izumi
(Why do I have a feeling that Sakuya's being corrupted by Azuma...)
