Brawny Aspirations

Mini Chats

Romeo and Julius
Side Sakuma Sakuya (1/3)
Sakuya: Tsuzuru's script is so good!
I still can’t believe that I was cast as the lead... as Romeo!
This is my first time learning sword-fighting, but I won't let you down!
Now I just wanna practice more...
Do you think we could extend practice for another 30 minutes? Please?
Side Sakuma Sakuya (2/3)
Sakuya: Today’s curry was super tasty!
To be honest, I've never been a huge fan of curry.
But eating your curry has opened my eyes to how yummy it is!
Um, maybe eating it every day is a bit much, but I could go for 3 days a week!
Wait, by 3 days, I don't mean curry for breakfast, lunch, and dinner three times a week!
Side Sakuma Sakuya (3/3)
Sakuya: Zzz....zzz.....
...Huh? W-when did I fall asleep?
Was I sleeping on your shoulder?!
Oh no! I'm so sorry! I wasn't too heavy, was I?
Being with you is so calming, I couldn't help it...aah, I'm so embarrassed!
Sakuya & Yuki's Talk
Yuki: Hey, Energy Concentrate, why are you so spunky anyway? It's weird.
Sakuya: Huh? Um... I guess because I really love acting and being with everyone?
Yuki: So like, do you ever feel down?
Sakuya: I guess? But I don't think it happens often.
Yuki: Huh.
Sakuya: Oh, wait, I know! You know when you look into your salad and realize it has celery in it? That always bums me out...
Yuki: ...What?
Yuki: Pfft! Hahaha! What are you, five?
Hanasaki High
Side Sakuma Sakuya (1/3)
Sakuya: Good morning!
Sorry, I totally forgot that I'm class helper, and I have to head to school early today. ...Oh, I can have this piece of toast?
Thank you so much!! Off to school I go!
Side Sakuma Sakuya (2/3)
Sakuya: I was talking with the kids in my class today and I found out that Banri's really popular with the girls at school!
He doesn't have a fan club like Masumi does, but everyone thinks he's super cool!
Must be nice...
I'm sure I'll never reach their level, but there's no harm in trying, right? I'll do my best!
Side Sakuma Sakuya (3/3)

Oh, hi there.
Are you going home? Let's walk back together!
Um, sorry... When I think about how it's just the two of us right now, I get kinda nervous...
I wonder if this is how an after school date feels like? The girls in my class were talking about theirs the other day...

Er! Not that I think this is really a date or anything!
Masumi's gonna be really mad at me if he sees this...

Sakuya & Misumi's Talk
Misumi: Wonder if I can find any triangles today!
Sakuya: Oh, Misumi! Morning!
Misumi: .....
Sakuya: Um, Misumi?
Misumi: Sa...ku...ya... It's got 3 syllables, like a triangle...

Sa-ku-ya!! I found my triangle for today! Thanks a bunch, Sakuya!

Sakuya: Um, no problem?
I'm glad I could be of help!
Alex in Wonderland
Side Sakuma Sakuya (1/3)
Sakuya: Since I'm playing the Cheshire Cat, I was thinking I should put some feline movements into my acting.
But every time I try to mimic that mysterious way cats move, I just can't get it right...
You know, stuff like grooming your paws and prowling around like a cat?
Hmm... I guess the best thing would be to observe a real cat.
Alright, starting from today I'm gonna drop by Veludo Way on the way home from school and study Mikke and Kuro!
Side Sakuma Sakuya (2/3)
Sakuya: So, last night I was reading the script and got kinda stumped on how I should read my lines.
But then, Azuma suggested I clear my mind by coloring with him.
I thought that it would be hard since the pages were so detailed, but once I started coloring I got super into it.
Plus, talking with Azuma was a lot of fun. I felt like a huge weight was taken off my shoulders when I finished.
Must've had something to do with coloring and Azuma's smile! Pretty amazing, huh?
Side Sakuma Sakuya (3/3)
Sakuya: What kind of plays and scenes do you like?
You always listen to me go on and on about my favorite plays... Why don't you tell me some of yours this time?
I want to practice the lines from your favorite scenes.
Once I get really good at them, will you be the first one to watch me act them out?
I want you to think my version is the best you've seen yet!
Sakuya & Homare's Talk
Sakuya: Good morning!
Homare: A good morning to you, Sakuya.
Hm? Your tie's crooked.
Sakuya: Oh, you're right. Thanks. Your tie always looks so shark, Homare.
Homare: Well, of course, it does-- I'm a gentleman, after all. You see, there are so many different ways to tie a tie.
Sakuya: Wow, really? I only know one!
Homare: I'll teach you sometime. In fact, you should use me as an example and aim to be a proper gentleman, too.
Sakuya: I-I'll do my best! Thanks for the advice!
Sparkling Summer Memories
Side Sakuma Sakuya (1/3)
Sakuya: Wow, they're holding such a big summer festival here on Veludo Way!
Everything looks so amazing... Actually, this is my first time being at a festival.
I've never really had the chance to go to one until now.
That's why I'm so excited to go with everyone!
Oh, but that doesn't mean I'll slack off in the drama competition! I'm counting on you to help us during rehearsals, Izumi!
Side Sakuma Sakuya (2/3)
Sakuya: Practices with mixed troupe members feels different from our usual Spring Troupe rehearsals! I'm learning a lot from everyone!
Watching Tenma and Tsumugi act is inspiring, and they gave great advice, too. The way they carry and guide everyone is amazing.
I really respect them as fellow leaders! I hope I can become as dependable as they are, one day.
Huh? I've also grown a lot as a leader?
Thank you, Izumi! I'll do my best as both a Mankai Company actor and troupe leader, from here on out!
Side Sakuma Sakuya (3/3)
Sakuya: Oh! They're selling imagawayaki! I love any kind of sweet, filling-stuffed waffle-cakes! They look delicious.
Hmm...What kind of filling should I get? Red bean sounds good, but so does the custard cream...
Huh? We can buy one each and share them? Thank you! I'd love to do that!
Doesn't this taste especially good since we're enjoying it together?
I wonder if it's because you're the one I'm sharing it with, Izumi...
Sakuya & Azuma's Talk
Sakuya: Azuma, aren't you coming to the festival with us?
Azuma: Well... I'm not very good with the heat, so I think I'll refrain.
Azuma: Summer festivals are delightful, though. Imagining the streets brimming with excitement and yukata-clad figures puts a smile on my face.
Azuma: But I do tend to get solicited by all sorts of men and women whenever I wear a yukata to events like this.
Sakuya: W-what?! Really?
Sakuya: They must all be attracted to your mature charm!
Sakuya: I-if you ever want to go out in yukata, let me know! I'll do my best to protect you from unwanted attention, so you can enjoy yourself in peace!
Azuma: Hehe. Why, thank you so much. You're so dependable.
Azuma: If I had a bodyguard like you, Sakuya, I feel like I could stroll in yukata without any worries.
A Clockwork Heart
Side Sakuma Sakuya (1/3)
Sakuya: Apparently our next play is set in a steampunk world. I've never heard about steampunk before, but it sounds so cool!
I'm so excited to see all the costumes and props. And the set! It's all going to be completely different from when we did Wonderland.
I also like that my character is Tsuzuru's character's apprentice. There's something really nice about that kind of role, you know?
I love that he has a teacher to look up to.
Oh gosh, just talking about the play is exciting! I hope the audience will be just as thrilled as I am!
Side Sakuma Sakuya (2/3)
Sakuya: When Banri and I went out to do some street acting today, someone asked Banri if he was a college student.
Apparently, they thought that because I looked younger than him. Do I really look that childish...?
Oh! I'm not upset about it or anything! I've never really thought about it before, but I bet I can use my looks to take on a lot of different roles!
Still, though...Even though Banri and Juza are my age, they're so manly and grown-up looking.
I kind of wish I were cool like them, too...
One day, I hope I can play manlier roles, just like they do.
Side Sakuma Sakuya (3/3)
Sakuya: Izumi: Have you seen this? It's a flyer for a new movie. A steampunk action flick!
It's set in a world similar to the play we're putting on, and the story seems really interesting.
If you're free this weekend, would you liek to go see it with me?
Uh...I mean...
S-sorry! That just sounds like I'm asking you out on a date!
But, uh... Would you...want to go?
I'd be really happy if I could see it with you.
Sakuya & Omi's Talk
Sakuya: So that just leaves the veggies. We need carrots and radishes...
Omi: Oh, Sakuya. There's a fruit and vegetable stand in the shopping district that sells cheap root veggies, so we should buy them there.
Sakuya: Oh, really? Wow, you sure know a lot about groceries!
Omi: Haha. I just check the discount flyers. Sakyo said we need to be smart about saving money, so I figured, why not?
Sakuya: We do need to be saving money where we can. I'll make sure to check the ads from now on, too.
Sakuya: Ooh, I know! Would you make me your apprentice? You can teach me how to clip coupons and wash dishes!
Omi: My...apprentice?
Omi: Oh, right, you're playing Tsuzuru's apprentice in the new play, aren't you?
Omi: I'd be happy to teach you anything you want to know.
Sakuya: Yay! Thanks so much! Maybe I should call you Sir from now on, haha!
A Springtime Snooze
Side Sakuma Sakuya (1/3)
Sakuya: I can't wait for our joint training camp with the Winter Troupe. I bet I'll be able to pick up a lot of new things from them!
And I can't believe we'll even get to stay in a cottage. I've never done anything like that before!
Azuma said that the Spring Troupe will stay on the first floor, and the Winter Troupe will be on the second.
We'll get to sleep together again, just like we did for our last performance.
Sleeping in the same room with Citron is nice, but I bet it'll be even more exciting having a big sleepover with the rest of the troupe!
I'm glad we'll have free time to do fun stuff between our practice sessions. I'm super excisted to see how it all turns out!
Side Sakuma Sakuya (2/3)
Sakuya: The jacket I was wearing earlier actually belonged to Banri, bt he gave it to me. I think it looks super cool!
He gives me his hand-me-downs from time to time.
I was struggling trying to find something nice to wear for this training camp, and Banri said he had the perfect thing.
I told him I fel bad since he's always giving me stuff, so he told me to go to karaoke with him sometime to even things out.
I don't really know any songs, though... I wonder if Masumi will let me borrow some CDs if I ask?
Side Sakuma Sakuya (3/3)
Sakuya: It's nice and warm out here, and the air is so crisp.
That bird's chirping is beautiful, too. I wonder where it's coming from?
Oh! Look, Izumi. It's over there!
It's just past that branch. I wish it would come just a little closer so we could see it better.
Do you see it? it's just as cute as it sounds!
...Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry! I was so focused on finding the bird that I didn't realize how close I got to you.
I feel so lucky that I get to take a walk with you and enjoy all of this beautiful nature around us.
I'm having a great time. Thanks for hanging out with me and making things even more fun, Izumi!
Sakuya & Tsumugi's Talk (please add)
Knights of the Round IV On Stage
Side Sakuma Sakuya (1/3)
Sakuya: I can't believe we're going to be working with such a popular game!
I don't know much about video games, but I'm going to study a bunch for the play.
I'm going to have to work extra hard for this show since this is my first time playing a villain.
Itaru's been a huge help with giving me advice on a bunch of things! He's really excited about the play.
I'll do everything I can to make sure we create a show that both he and the fans will be happy about!
Side Sakuma Sakuya (2/3)
Sakuya: Sakyo's been helping me practice my sword fighting recently.
I had a bit of fight choreography in Romeo and Julius, but Yuzo was there to help me with it back then.
This is the first time I've had Sakyo teach me sword fighting, though!
He's so good at fight choreo! The sword looks so much cooler in his hands than it feels in mine.
I hope I can eventually give off that same, cool, intimidating aura when I'm fighting on stage.
Sakyo's a strict teacher, but his passion for the craft really comes through his lessons.
I'm gonna practice my hardest to make sure the fight scenes are as intense as they can be!
Side Sakuma Sakuya (3/3)
Sakuya: Hey, Izumi! Listen to what happened at the theater troupe I went to help out at today!
So when I was moving the set... And then I was helping them run some lines, when...
O-oh, wait! Sorry, I've just been talking about myself this whole time.
You know, it's a little strange...
But whenever something happens, I always think about how I have to tell you about it when I get home.
I love being able to talk to you about my day.
It doesn't bother you, does it...? Oh, good.
So what was your day like? I love hearing about your day just as much as I like telling you about my own!
Sakuya & Taichi's Talk
Taichi: Whoa, you've leveled up a lot in KotR since the last time I saw you playing, Sakkun.
Sakuya: Yeah... but I'm still having trouble beating the boss in this area with all the rocks.
Taichi: Hey, watch out! You just took some serious magical damage! Lancelot's gonna die! Heal him! Heal him!
Sakuya: U-uh... Right! Healing Grass!
Taichi: Phew! But since you took such a big hit, that means you can use your special move!
Taichi & Sakuya: Wind Spear!
Sakuya: Yes! I won!
Taichi: Yay! Congrats! Gaming on your own is fun, but playing together like this makes it even better!
Sakuya: Yeah! It feels like we're really out on an adventure, fighting together.
Taichi: All right! Since you beat the boss, let's celebrate with some soda! Nothing goes with games like a good soda, y'know? Here, I got you a can, too.
Sakuya: Thanks so much!
Taichi: Lancelot's got Healing Grass, but we've got soda! Once we've downed our healing fizz and are all ready, let's get started with the next adventure!
Queen Camellia!
Side Sakuma Sakuya (1/3)
Sakuya: We'll be playing characters in a murder mystery this time.
I think it's really interesting that the show is both a performance AND interactive mystery game! And it's so cool that the audience can play a part, too!
Plays and performances take on so many different forms... I'll do my best to pull the audience into the world of our mystery with my acting!
Getting to perform on a ship will definitely be a valuable experience for all of us.
It's not every day we get the chance to ride a luxury liner, so I'm a little nervous, but I'm incredibly excited for our trip, too!
Side Sakuma Sakuya (2/3)
Sakuya: I should take a picture of this, too...
Oh, Tsuzuru asked me to take photos of the ship's interior since he wanted more reference materials for his scripts.
I've been taking pictures of anything that looks interesting, but everything in this ship is so incredible, I've ended up with a LOT of pictures....
Tsuzuru is always writing down notes and taking pictures of things that might serve as inspiration or material for a story.
I guess that's how he gets new ideas from things.
Well, I'm not going to fall behind! I'll also use all of my experiences to become the best I can be on stage!
Side Sakuma Sakuya (3/3)
Sakuya: We really lucked out with the weather. Both the ocean and the sky are such a perfect blue...
Looking at this never-ending horizon makes me think about how big the world is...
And what a miracle it is that I got to meet you and the rest of the Mankai Company despite that.
It just crossed my mind as I was looking out here.
This world must have thousands and thousands of different troupes.
Yet out of all of those, I was able to meet you and join the Mankai company... I'm really glad that I did.
Getting to put on amazing shows with everyone really, truly makes me happy.
There are still so many things I don't know about on the other side of this ocean. Countries, scripts, performances...
I can't wait to learn even more about acting and perform all sorts of plays together with you and the rest of Mankai!
Sakuya & Yuki's Chat
Sakuya: Aaah! The sea breeze and sound of the waves is just so wonderful!
Yuki: It's a nice change from the chaos at the dorm. There's nothing but peace and quiet here, and we don't have to deal with annoying message notifications either.
Sakuya: Oh, that's probably because the reception is so poor out here.
Yuki: Good. The Summer Troupe's group chat is always blowing up with messages. It's nice not having to deal with a million pop-ups and notifications for once.
Sakuya: Your troupe's group chat sounds like a blast!
Yuki: That reminds me, we all made different vacation plans, so we plan to bring back souvenirs for each other.
Sakuya: I was thinking of getting some stuff for the Spring Troupe, too! Let's look for gifts together!
Yuki: Well, sure. I guess I could get them some snacks.
....Guess it does feel a little empty without the constant notifications.
