Saki-chan, Asselin-san, and all of Sai are appearing in a cosmetics commercial! With Saki-chan's lectures guiding them, a group of supreme makeup artists is born!
Saki Mizushima, Asselin BB II, and the members of Sai are the newest spokespeople for a make-up commercial.
While the commercial has the four of them applying Saki's make-up, no one else has the slightest idea when it comes to make-up.
Even Shoma, who's used stage make-up and is well-versed in beauty, has no experience in women's make-up.
To let the others learn more about make-up, Saki suggests a field trip to a cosmetics shop.
"Let's make the cute you, beautiful."
With cool and mature make-up, let's make this commercial shoot a success!

Omigosh! We're gonna be in a makeup commercial! I'm totes moved, and SO excited~!
We're gonna have a papi-study session at the cosmetic store ♪ Y'know, so we can make a commercial that'll make everybody totally squee!
S-Sssstudy session... Hither and thither does this place brimmeth with bewitching elixirs...
To mine own eyes, it looketh all alike... Do the Denizens of Light truly know how to properly wield these?
Well, duh ♪ Don't worry, I know just the thing! I'm gonna give you a little lecture, Asselin!
My, so this a cosmetics store... It's my first time in one, but doesn't this place look just darling?
Mrowr?! Ny'are we double-supporting Madame Butterfly and Saki-kun this time a-meow-nd?
Ahaha. No pomade, no whitening-makeup, no greasepaint? Goodness, these cosmetics really are uncharted waters, aren't they?
...Before anyone asks, I've absolutely no knowledge of this, either.
Meowwr?! Saki-kun! Teach us the basics too, purr-ty pleeease!!
Wha, this brand's new makeup already launched?! I forgot to check... Sigh~...
Brand... Do the effects of these glamorous nostrums differ in accordance with the hand that forged them?
Yup! They're totes different! What's in fashion changes alllll the time, so it's, like, a major disaster if you forget to check!
For example: Color. This color was super in last year. And this color is in right now! And
this color's gonna be next!
Ah, but, but. It's important to, like buy the stuff you like papi-ly, regardless of trends!
If you surround yourself with stuff you "love," then you'll feel happy ♪
I've got, like, a real problem with money, so I gotta choose carefully... Hmm...
This vivid pink is so fetch, but the pastel pink is, too... Which one fits me better...?
They looketh all the same to mine eyes...
And yet, thine expression is staid with earnesty...
These bewitching elixirs are truly an untrodden territory...
Thy presence is propitious indeed, Saki...!
It seems I was able to put the basics in order somehow, thanks to that little missy over there teaching us.
Really, now...? Nevertheless, Mizushima-san truly is well informed when it comes to cosmetics, isn't he?
Yes, yes, he has a meow-sterful style in those flowing hands, he does.
These are only the most basic of makeup tools, and yet I had no idea there were even this many.
We must prepare for the shoot, and commit this all to memory before we go onscreen...!
...Say, what do you dears think about a little buy-and-try? We can all practice our makeup skills.
Why, I'm sure if we use each other as practice partners, we'll get the hang of this... right?
...Hmm~, I might've applied just a TOUCH too much, haven't I...?
...Hanamura-san. This isn't eye makeup. It's kumadori... *
Kuro-kun, you look like a kitty with some claws, denyansu!
You could get right onstage looking like that!
You say that, Nekoyanagi-san, but your makeup looks far too light...
...And I'm worried your eyebrows aren't symmetrical. This is making me nervous.
Meowr?! But YOU were in charge of my makeup, Kuro-kun~?!
Hmm~ ...Oh dear. Trying to do this by my lonesome is actually rather difficult.
Well, if we ever wanna take on jobs making people laugh, I'd say we're on the right track, no?
Fufu... Maybe so, but this job calls for makeup that will charm the audience.
...I suppose I'll have to go ask the little missy to help me train a tad more.
stage makeup worn by kabuki actors.
Asselin, look, look! This costume makes me look just like a doll! It's totes adorbs!
Hm. These raiments... 'Tis said that they draweth out Saki's charm as much as thy heart desires!
sooo happy we were able to land a job as lovely as this~ ♪
It's all thanks to those sexiness tips Shoma taught me back when we were doing that Arabian thing!
Not just on the outside, but like... deep down inside...
I know that when I move, I am 'beautiful.' Not just in my face, but all the way up to my fingertips.
I see. Though thou art the leading part in this act, I, too, have become aware of the grace that adorneth thee.
And... With the art of glamour bestowed to me by thee, Saki, we shall weather this trial set forth upon us anon!
Totally! Let's do our papi-est~!
...We are not in the clear at all yet, are we? Nekoyanagi-san and I are the only ones who keep having to retake...
Mewl~ I thought that we ny'already improved our makeup skills enough, thanks to Saki-kun...
The two of you are getting far too distracted! Your movements are all stuffy and stiff!
This role is about making girls beautiful! You can't just do that all willy-nilly! A forceful appeal is key, no?
I'd rather you go at it with so much vigor that you're practically attacking the little missy, here!
Attacking...?! E-even if you say that, what's in your head and what's practical to act are...
...Oh, there's just no helping it, I suppose. Just saying it won't teach your body a thing, now will it?
From here on, I'll be dealing with you two! Watch carefully, darlings!
...Hanamura-san? Your eyes seem to have glazed over somewhat...
...You turned his super-sadist switch on, denyansu...
You'd better prepare yourself, Kuro-kun.
...Um... you... want to take shots of me without makeup?
...A before-after scene, huh...?
Oh, what do I do...? Like, I get the director's vision and all, but... I...
......I've been keeping this a secret... from my school and family...
Thou canst not! Thou
shalt not! ...The person that standeth before you is a descendant of the Papi Tribes, a wanton wielder of phantoms and illusion!
According to the laws of the Papi Tribe, an unconcealed visage must be hidden...
Should this law be defied, the very fabric of the world would be torn asunder!
...What?! Thou understandeth not my reasoning?!
...Uhm, that is... I... What I wanna say is...
This displeases Saki. Thus, an unconcealed visage... A face without makeup, it simply won't do... I ask of you... Please...
I-It's just like he says. My face without makeup is super hush-hush. Sorry!
...Yup. Thanks so much!
Sorry for being selfish about it...
But if I do my best on just this part, I'll make sure this ends up the bestest commercial ever! Leave it to me!
Here we are, darlings, showtime! Kuro-chan, Kirio-chan, are you ready?
(With this hand, I'll make Mizushima-san beautiful...!)
(...With this paw, and a little SWISH SWISH, Saki's totally transformed, denyansu...!)
Fufu. They look so happy. The stiffness is all gone! They're moving just splendidly out there!
The best commercial... ever, hm? With that in mind, if I don't make it so, then men will go flat out of style!
Now, then, right after this... It's my turn.
I have to make this the best commercial I can!
Asselin, good job shooting today! Whew~
...I was so nervous, but... that was, like, super fun!
I saw the playback recording, but... everyone looks like a whole different person.
Shoma especially was like, totally spellbinding out there! It was so mondo cool.
Hm. That, over there, was nothing less than the very "Incarnation of Beauty." ...Unbeknownst to even myself, I found mine eyes transfixed.
...Hey, Asselin. Thanks for that back there.
I've been keeping my idol life on the real down low from my school and family...
If they ever found out, my mind would totally blank out on what to do... You saved me.
Hm... Thy circumstances dictate to thee a secret thou must keep even from thine own family, do they not?
Yup... My dad and them are real strict on telling me to be more like a boy... Ehehe.
Anywho, I'm glad this job ended up going so well. I'm lookin' forward to how it turns out♪
