Hayato Akiyama/Side Memories
From The iDOLM@STER: SideM Unofficial English Wiki
01 - Up Close! High×Joker's Leader![edit | edit source]
|You have a job request specifically for me? What is it… Huh!? A documentary!?|
|Hand over job proposal|
|Let’s see “We would like to request to take footage of the daily life of this popular band’s leader and how he tackles creating songs.”|
“And, if it is possible, we would like a new song to play in our program.” Wow!
|Hayatocchi’s going to be in a documentary!? That’s so cool! It makes ya sound like an expert artisan!|
|I know, right? I’ll take the job, producer! I’m going to make a new song too, of course!|
|That’s all good, but are you gonna be okay all by yourself, Hayato~?|
|I’ll be fine! This job focuses the attention on me this time.|
You know what that means, right!? If everything goes well, this might be my chance to get super popular!
|Honestly… There you go again with that impure motive of yours, Hayato…|
|I’ve said this before, but I genuinely want to be popular! That’s why it’s in no way impure!|
|...Hehe. Hayato is the same... as always.|
02 - A Pure Emotion[edit | edit source]
|Several days later, the filming for the documentary began.|
|Staff||We’ll be taking footage of the interior of the office for the opening of the program.|
All right, let’s get the cameras rol-
|Hello! Ah, there you are, Producer! Hey, you gotta look at this!|
|Hayato shows me the latest issue of a women’s magazine, all the while blushing.|
|Hehe… I wanted to prepare for the documentary, so I wanted to study up again on some techniques that’ll make me popular.|
I was super nervous buying this magazine by myself, but the articles about popularity in this magazine are awesome!
There’s a lot of really daring stuff written down and it was embarrassing to read, but I think I’m all ready for filming...
|They’re also ready to start filming...|
|They? ...Huh, cameras? What!? How long have they been here!?|
Oh no, don’t tell me the cameras are already rolling…!? Why!?
|Staff||Well, I didn’t see this coming, but this is perfect footage! It’s just like a high school boy to be so youthful!|
|Ahhhh! Wait, sir! Cut! Please cut!|
03 - The Usual Flow[edit | edit source]
|A few days later, the documentary team began recording a meeting for the discussion of the new song among the High×Joker members.|
|Staff||Okay! All the cameras are rolling, so feel free to start anytime!|
|Ahem. Today, I would like to discuss the theme of the new song. I would like to begin this meeting by asking for your opinions on this subject, my fellow band members.|
|I can understand you want to look good in front of the cameras, but your manner of speaking is completely different from how you normally speak.|
|Yeah, that’s not how you always talk! You’re also acting totally different, man.|
|Th-that’s not true! Uhh, ahem! Okay, gentlemen! Please share your ideas on a new song!|
|Staff||Umm, is Hayato-kun always like this?|
|No way. He’s always like “I made this awesome new song! AW YEAH~!”|
|Shiiikiii! Stop being such a big mouth!|
|Ahaha! You can’t catch me that easily~!|
|Excuse me… sir. The weird way Hayato spoke before… is completely different from how he always speaks… But|
|But he always put in everything he’s got when he’s tackling any problem… That’s how Hayato always is.|
04 - Flustered[edit | edit source]
|There’s no recording today. You must be happy you don't need to act cool today, Hayatocchi.|
|… Hayato. Are you okay?|
|I’ve thought of a lot of phrases for the new song, but I just can’t put it all together.|
|You need to come up with a new song while they’re still recording footage too.|
Considering how far we’re in, if you don’t come up with at least a draft soon, things’ll get real bad, right?
|You’re right… Sorry. I’m gonna go outside to get some air.|
|He’s a serious minded person when it comes down to it. I hope he doesn’t brood on this too much…|
|*sigh* What am I doing? I don’t have time to be like this.|
(This is my job I need to do. I need to do my very best for it, but…)
05 - "I Can't Let This Go On"[edit | edit source]
|Sorry about that. I’m back… Huh? Everyone went home already.|
|Everyone was worried about you.|
|I see… I did something bad. I’m sorry I worried you too, Producer.|
(If I take up any more time, I’m just going to be a nuisance for everyone.)
(But if I keep thinking about this all by myself, nothing good is going to come from it…)
...Umm, Producer. I have something I want to talk to you about for a bit!
|At that moment, Hayato’s stomach grumbled|
|Ah! Uhh, that noise now… that wasn’t…|
|Wanna go get some dinner?|
|Ah. Ahaha… Yeah. Thank you for the offer. Ahh… I’m so embarrassed…|
I need to make sure to tell my brother later on that I’m eating out tonight.
06 - Strong Sense of Responsibility[edit | edit source]
|Phew, I’m stuffed. Thank you for the meal. So, about what I wanted to talk to you about…|
About the new song… I’ve got ideas in my head… but I can’t like put them together and come up with something.
They did all this hard work for a program about me as the leader of High×Joker...
I know I really need to get my act together, but look at how pathetic I am.
I can’t come up with a good song with my feelings all jumbled up like this.
I try to act all cool during recording… but all I’m doing is working but making no progress and being a nuisance to everyone in the band.
If I end up looking bad in that program, it’ll make everyone else look bad too…
*Sigh*...This is just awful… I’m a failure as a leader…
Ahhhhh, what am I saying! Haha, sorry for making things so gloomy. Forgot about what I said earlier…
|It’s important to be yourself too, Hayat|
|Like myself… but is that really okay? This is suppose to be about me as the leader of High×Joker, not myself, right?|
Just be how you always are every day… Really? I see.
I might’ve just been overthinking this whole thing. Thank you, Producer!
07 - Overflowing Inspiration[edit | edit source]
|I think I can come up with a good song now!|
I’ll write down as much ideas as I possibly can for now! Let’s get these hands moving!
I can use the phrase I wrote down earlier here… but I can’t just not use this awesome phrase here…
Hmm, I really want to use all four of these, but then the whole song won’t be consistent…
|There’s something that caught my eye...|
|Producer? You want to see all the music sheets I’ve written? Sure, I’d be happy to…|
|I told Hayato that all the phrases he’s mulling over right now fits the image of each member of High×Joker|
|Huh,these four phrases are just like the other members? I didn’t even notice it….|
...But you’re right. This one’s just like Shiki, and this one seems just like Jun…
Ah! Then maybe if I add a phrase that's just like me here… okay, time to think!
I-It’s done! It’s finally finished!
I need to finish fixing the smaller details here and there, but the outline is perfect!
It’s hard to believe I was even worrying about all of this not too long ago. This is all thanks to you, Producer!
I can’t wait to complete this song and play it on the guitar! All right, let’s do this!!
08 - "I Want You to Listen to This Emotion"[edit | edit source]
|A few days later, the 5 members of High×Joker are watching the documentary...|
|They even recorded him making a fuss about becoming popular… That’s just like Hayato though.|
|Ah! They kept the scene where he was chasing me around. They know their stuff~.|
|You look like you’re having fun, Hayato… that fits you more than trying to look cool.|
|Hayato looks like he’s dying of embarrassment right now though. Ah, looks like the new song is next.|
|Host||This new song will be a solo played by Hayato-san. Please say a few words to the audience before you start playing.|
|During the composition of this song, I wanted to work as hard as I could by myself at the start, but it didn’t work out well.|
But then I realized something, and I started thinking about phrases while thinking about all my band members.
I try too hard, try to act cool, and even sometimes fail… That's how I am.
But even someone like me can become a leader with my bandmates supporting me! That’s what I realized all over again.
In this new song, I put in all the good qualities of everyone and myself and my thoughts into it.
I have the best friends anyone could ask for! High×Joker is amazing!
In this song, I want all of you to know about me… and about High×Joker…
To the people who know about us and to our fans, I want you to like us more by hearing this song!
This song was created with all these emotions in it! Please listen to it!
09 - Our Beloved Leader[edit | edit source]
|Your new song was very good, Hayato.|
|Uh-huh… You conveyed your feelings really well… Hayato.|
|Thank yo- Wait!? An interview with the band members? I didn’t know anything about this. What’s this about?|
|Hehehe. The truth is we were actually interviewed in secret during recording.|
|Yup. Now sit down and watch!|
|Host||What does your leader, Hayato-san, mean to all of you?|
|Well… Hayato’s a crybaby, but he always works hard and puts everything in all his work.|
When it comes down to it, he’s a reliable leader! That’s what I think at least!
|Serious respect to his guitar skills! He does work too hard sometimes and he’ll go around in circles because of it.|
Not like I have any right to say that to anyone else though… Still, all of his flaws are also a part of Hayatocchi’s charm!
|Let’s see… To be honest, when I look at him, I do worry about him sometimes…|
But Hayato is the one who brings us all together. That is what I think.
|...Hayato is always dedicated and earnest... His diligence gets passed on to all of us…|
That’s why… we’re able to think “We can do this... We'll do our best...”
10 - Hayato Akiyama[edit | edit source]
|Hayato, your face is all wet. Were you really so touched that you cried that much?|
|I-I’m not crying yet!|
|Gotta be honest though, when I heard your new song, Hayatocchi, I got a little choked up!|
|The lyrics and song were filled with so much emotion… I felt like crying a little too…|
|Guys… Thank you. I really mean it.|
...Hey guys. I’m going to keep doing my best as leader, so I hope you’ll all stick with me.
|Of course. The only leader we’ll have now and forever is you, Hayato.|
|*sob* I knew it… High×Joker is the best unit ever!|
|You’re crying right now, aren’t you?|
|I said I’m not crying!! Geez! Would you all stop looking at me with those grins on your faces already!?|
