【Uzumaki ARTIST】Makio Uzuki T.png Hello! ...Woah, there are so many comics here.
【COMIC ARTIST】Saki Mizushima T.png Hi, Producer! Oh, you’re right. There’s a huge pile of them!
【Uzumaki ARTIST】Makio Uzuki T.png Did someone leave them here?

Eh, these are materials for our live? ...I see, so our next live is sponsored by a comic publisher.

【COMIC ARTIST】Saki Mizushima T.png It looks like the documents are here! ...Hmmm, they finished the concepts for our outfits.

Wow~. These outfits are based on a comic artist? I didn’t imagine they would look like this at all!

【Uzumaki ARTIST】Makio Uzuki T.png It looks like the stage’s set is based on a comic artist too, down to every little detail.
【COMIC ARTIST】Saki Mizushima T.png I totally can’t wait to see the outfits and the set. Let's do our best with F-LAGS for this live, Roll!
【Uzumaki ARTIST】Makio Uzuki T.png Yeah. Let’s make this live as fun as these comics! ...By the way, Producer-san.

Is it okay if I read some of these? They piqued my interest. Ahaha.

【COMIC ARTIST】Saki Mizushima T.png We can? Thanks! I don’t know which one to read first~. Ehehe. ♪

【Hanamaru ARTIST】Daigo Kabuto T.png So this’s the drawin’ cafe Boss recommended to us?
【COMIC ARTIST】Ryo Akizuki T.png They said to come here to use it as a reference for our live... This shop is pretty interesting, isn’t it?
【Hanamaru ARTIST】Daigo Kabuto T.png Yeah. It’s like a stylish cafe and a school art room in one!
【COMIC ARTIST】Ryo Akizuki T.png Oh, it looks like we can use any of the stationery they have here.
【Hanamaru ARTIST】Daigo Kabuto T.png We can drink while we’re drawin’ pictures and comics too?!
【COMIC ARTIST】Kazuki Tsukumo T.png ...It seems they have created a specialized environment in order to encourage creative work.

...We are novices in drawing and comics.

...I am grateful that we have the opportunity to study in this way before our live.

【COMIC ARTIST】Ryo Akizuki T.png Me too. Well then, let’s start looking around the shop!
【Hanamaru ARTIST】Daigo Kabuto T.png Yeah! ...Hm? This stationery is an interestin’ shape. What’s this used for?

03[edit | edit source | hide]

【Uzumaki ARTIST】Makio Uzuki T.png I think we’ve looked around just about everywhere in the shop, so how about we try drawing something now?
【COMIC ARTIST】Saki Mizushima T.png ‘Kay! What should I draw~? It might be best to start with something easy.

...I know, I’ll draw Bubu! I can use that picture of him you gave me. ♪

【Uzumaki ARTIST】Makio Uzuki T.png Then I’ll draw Satan. If it turns out good, I might give it to Asselin-san.

...Huh? What’s this thin paper? One of its sides is smooth.

It’s so thin that it’s see-through... Saki-chan, do you know what this is used for?

【COMIC ARTIST】Saki Mizushima T.png Hmmm. It sort of looks like parchment paper... Ah, there’s a clerk. Could you teach us how to use this?

...Mhm. They said it’s tracing paper.

You use it to copy the drawing that’s underneath it, right? Thanks for telling us!

【Uzumaki ARTIST】Makio Uzuki T.png I wonder if comic artists use this kind of tool sometimes? I’m learning a lot from this.

【COMIC ARTIST】Kazuki Tsukumo T.png ...Our first rehearsal went well. Let’s keep up the pace and perfect our performance for the live.
【Hanamaru ARTIST】Daigo Kabuto T.png ...Hmmm.
【COMIC ARTIST】Ryo Akizuki T.png What’s wrong, Daigo-kun? Is there something bothering you about our rehearsal?
【Hanamaru ARTIST】Daigo Kabuto T.png Yeah, just a lil’. I came up with an idea for somethin’ we could do when all five of us are singin’ together.

We can improvise and draw whatever we want in the air, right?

【COMIC ARTIST】Ryo Akizuki T.png Are you talking about how we’re going to draw with the light from our pens? What’s your idea?
【Hanamaru ARTIST】Daigo Kabuto T.png Right now, we’re each just drawin’ whatever we want to,

but I was thinkin’ we could use that to send a message to the audience at the end.

【COMIC ARTIST】Kazuki Tsukumo T.png ...A message? We wouldn’t be able to write a long sentence with the pens’ lights.
【Hanamaru ARTIST】Daigo Kabuto T.png Uh-huh, that’s true... Ah, whaddya think about each of us writin’ just one letter?
【COMIC ARTIST】Kazuki Tsukumo T.png ...I see. Do you mean we will write it as a relay? In that case, it shouldn’t be too difficult to implement your idea.
【COMIC ARTIST】Ryo Akizuki T.png That sounds like it’d be fun. Let’s go ask Producer-san and the others what they think!

05[edit | edit source | hide]

【COMIC ARTIST】Saki Mizushima T.png Aw~, I think I messed up trying to write my letter again.

Daigo put a lot of thought into this for us, but this is still super frustrating~!

【Uzumaki ARTIST】Makio Uzuki T.png It’s because we have to write the letters backwards in order for the audience to be able to read them.
【COMIC ARTIST】Saki Mizushima T.png You’re pretty good at this. Hey, what’s your secret?
【Uzumaki ARTIST】Makio Uzuki T.png I don’t really have a secret, but it might be because I used this to practice.
【COMIC ARTIST】Saki Mizushima T.png That is... Ah, that’s the tracing paper we found at the drawing cafe, right?
【Uzumaki ARTIST】Makio Uzuki T.png It is. I wrote my letter on it, then I looked at the letter from the other side of the paper and traced it.

If you keep on tracing it over and over again, eventually you’ll memorize how to write it.

I did that when I was practicing at home, and now I can write mine pretty well.

【COMIC ARTIST】Saki Mizushima T.png Wow! I hadn’t thought of that before! I’ll try it soon. Thanks. ♪

07[edit | edit source | hide]

【Uzumaki ARTIST】Makio Uzuki+ T.png ...Actually, lately I’ve been playing around with making simple drawings.
【COMIC ARTIST】Saki Mizushima+ T.png Roll’s shown me some of his drawings,

and the cakes he draws look super yummy!

I could tell how much he loves cakes just by looking at them, so I couldn’t help but smile. ♪

...Roll, the audience is saying they want to see one too! Go ahead and show them!

【Uzumaki ARTIST】Makio Uzuki+ T.png If you say so...

Maybe someday, I’ll show off my drawings somehow.

Ahaha, sorry to let you all down. I didn’t prepare any drawings for today. But still...

I’ll do my best whenever I get the chance to show you them, so please look forward to it!

【COMIC ARTIST】Saki Mizushima+ T.png Okay then, let’s papi go go to the next song! Make sure to pay super close attention to how we move our pens. ♪

...Everyone! Please let our feelin’s reach ya!

That was our message of gratitude to ya!
