【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png Hayatocchi, was that phone call from Producer just now? About work?
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png Yeah, actually…… Our next appearance is gonna be on TV!
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png …Wait, seriously!? WHOA~! Awesome!! That’s something to super celebrate!!
【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png ……Ooh. That’s great…
【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png …By the way, what details does the program entail, Hayato? Is it like a quiz program of sorts?
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png It’s a variety corner for idol programs. We’re participating in a high school judo tournament, they said.
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png Oh, sounds kinda fun! And we’ve all taken judo in class, haven’t we?
【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png Just to confirm… Is there anyone aside from Haruna-san who’s good at sports?
Everyone except Haruna: ……
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png C’mon, guys, it’ll be fine. If we just give it a shot, things will have a way of working out…… Probably.

【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png This club’s activities in school… It’s a surprising amount of force shoved at you when you look at it up close.
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png It sure does give off the “MANLY SPORT!” sorta vibe… Honestly, it’s a little mucky, gotta say.
【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png ……The people who are getting hit… look like they hurt…
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png Hayato, it’s nice how you sure seem enthusiastic about this. It’s like your eyes are sparkling.
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png Ohh… They’re so cool… Everyone’s so tall… And so muscular……

If you’re that manly, you gotta be popular, right… Haah...… I’m so envious…

【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png …You’re envious of… what looks like it’d be popular…? Is that what it’s about…? Hayato?
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png Of course, man! Guys totally want to be fawned over by girls, y’know?

I really think that a sports club would be more popular than a culture club… The way that guys who can do sports are cool and reliable is amazing! …Is what they’d say, huh…

【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png Hayato… Are you being drawn to a sports club at this point in time?
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png Does that mean you’ll quit the light music club and join a sports club, Hayatocchi!?

WAHH—! I don’t want you to do that! High×Joker won’t exist without you, Hayatocchi!!

【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png C-calm down, Shiki! I didn’t say anything like th…

【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png Uuugh… Hayatocchi, I don’t want you to quit the light music club!!
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png I get how Hayato feels about wanting to be popular. I’m the same way, actually.
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png Wha—! Harunacchi, you’re saying the same thing…!? Why are you taking his side!!
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png Hey, calm down, Shiki. Hayato never said a peep about quitting the light music club.

No matter how popular he wants to be, Hayato’d never say anything so irresponsible.

【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png …It’s all right… Hayato won’t… do something like that. Right, Jun?
【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png Even I… don’t believe in the slightest that Hayato would seriously choose a sports club.

But… in the case that Hayato were to quit, then that would surely…

【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png Uhh—… Ahem.

You’re right that I began playing guitar just to become popular. It’s also right that I admire manly things. But I won’t just quit the band with that. Since right now, we’re all part of High×Joker together. One of my goals now is for all five of us to try to become top idols.

【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png Uu… Hayatocchi… I’m sorry for sayin’ something so baseless and doubting you!
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png Let’s make sure we work hard at this program so that lots of people get to know our name!
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png Of coursies! Let’s aim to hyper-stand out on TV and become the talk of the town!
【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png Yes, that’s right. Let’s all work hard.
【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png ……Yeah. Let’s do our best…!

【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png …Haruna-san. Do you have a moment?
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png Uhh, what’s up, Jun? Yeah, sure.
【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png I wondered if you could teach me a trick to move my body in the way that I imagine it in my head…
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png Ooh, if that’s what you want, then leave it to me!

But it’s sorta refreshing being relied on by you for a change. It’s usually the opposite…

【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png I felt I was hitting my limits doing it on my own. I don’t have a good sense of how to move my body, either.

I don’t like dragging others down. In order to win, I’ll rely on others. That’s all there is to it.

【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png Haruna, could you teach me that trick too? I feel like there’s a difference between just watching and actually putting it into…
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png Ye, ye, leave it to me. Same as Jun: once you’ve messed up your opponent’s posture using a foot technique…
【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png *pokes Haruna from behind*
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png Huh? What’s wrong, Natsuki? You want in on the action?
【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png ……Yeah. Can you… teach me too?
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png Yeah, of course… I wonder when I’ve become so popular today~.
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png Harunacchi~! Please teach me a trick to move, like, a cool guy!
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png …What’s up, you too, Shiki? All right then, now that we’ve gotten to this point……

I’ll look after all your worries’n troubles! All you gotta do is follow me! Just kidding~

【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png Hey, Haruna… Can you teach me this part… from before…

…Haruna?

【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png …Huh? Oh, sorry, sorry.

Uhh, by from before, you mean… the ko-uchigari move?

【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png …Haruna, you were… staring off into space just now… thinking about something?
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png Yeah… I was thinking… it doesn’t really feel that bad to have everyone else rely on me…

Since I’m always the one relying on others, y’know~… I only joined the band because I was told I’d be able to keep going without dropping out of school if I was successful in club activities… But it feels really good to be here. All of you guys are nice, and you treat me as someone essential. …Oops, sorry about saying something boring. All right, Natsuki, let’s get started putting our bodies into action~.

【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png …I’m also… glad that I joined the band. I’m the same… as you…

【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png Hey~, you know how I’m always relying on you for studying, Jun?

Being relied on… seriously makes you feel happy, huh?

【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png …Well, yes. At the very least, it’s not a bad feeling.
【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png Jun… Actually… you get happy about Haruna and Shiki relying on you… I know…

You’re not honest about it… so you don’t usually talk about it……

【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png Na—

NATSUKI! Don’t just say baseless stuff like that out of nowhere! Idiot!

【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png ……Nothing I said was baseless. *leaves*
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png Jun, your face is pretty red? It’s not that good to get so worked up.

…But still… Haha… This sorta thing feels nice.

【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png ……Pull my leg back… here…

And then next is… Like this…… Fh—!

【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png Hey~, Natsuki! Wanna take a break for a while?
【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png ……Hayato. Yeah, I’ll do that… I’ll take a break…
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png Natsuki, you’re putting in a lot of effort into practice. I don’t think you liked sports, though?
【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png ……That’s not really… why I’m……

……I have to become stronger… so that I can protect Jun…

【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png Huh? But Jun’s perfectly fine. Plus he’s making progress thanks to coaching from the teacher and Haruna.

He’s been getting stronger and stronger, so I don’t think you have anything to worry about?

【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png But… that’s not what it’s about……
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png Natsuki……?

【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png In the past… back when we were just kids…… there was a time when I had something dangerous happen to me…
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png Something dangerous… —Wait, huh!? Were you all right!?
【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png Yeah… When that happened, Jun saved me……

…But… because of me…… Jun was—…

【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png Natsuki! Your face is white as a sheet. It’s all right, you’ve said enough… Sorry. I made you remember something painful.
【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png ……I’m fine. Right now, Jun’s also having fun every day, so…

…This time, I… want to be sure to protect Jun.

【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png Hey, Natsuki. This is just a what-if situation, but… Even if Jun were to have something dangerous happen to him…

You can’t think things like, “I have to do something about this on my own.”

【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png Hayato……?
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png Shiki, Haruna, and I are here, right? All of us can protect him.

Both Jun and you, Natsuki, are part of our group of High×Joker friends. Let’s all help each other out. If you end up burdening yourself with everything, it’ll have the opposite effect and make us sad, okay?

【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png ……! ……Yeah. You’re right……

【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png ……Hayato… Thank you.

If that time ever comes… I’ll rely on… everyone……

【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png Of course! Leave it to us! Ah, but of course, I don’t want anything dangerous to happen to you.
【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png ……Yeah… you’re right.
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png Natsuki, you should tell Haruna and Shiki directly that you’re relying on them too.

I’m pretty sure that it’d make them happier…

【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png ……Once you put it into words, and now that I think about it… It’s pretty hard…

But… if I’m ever able to say it, that’d be nice……

【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png Haah… Haah…

This is frustrating. I still can’t move the way I want… I still have to work harder… even harder… I can’t let myself be a burden…!

【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png I’ve been moving my body around every day, so I guess it’s a given that I’m hungry. I wanna eat donuts…
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png Ah~, I’m hungry too… Let’s drop by somewhere on our way back home!
【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png …? Wait, everyone. Why are you taking it so easy?

What will you do if you’re not practicing seriously? Even if it’s just an idol program… Do you all understand how important this job is to us!?

【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png Eh— Ah… S-sorry. We weren’t trying to act like we were screwing around…
【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png …Jun. I don’t think that was a good way of phrasing… what you wanted to say.

【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png …Gh!

I thought… it best to appeal ourselves by winning properly… because we’ll be appearing on this program…

【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png Juncchi, you’re way too stiff about this! When it comes to variety, humor equals justice!
【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png Humor… equals justice?
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png Yeppers! The most important thing’s to stand out, and whoever ends up catching the most attention by becoming popular will win!!
【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png ……Haah… So that’s what it’s about…
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png …It’s valuable to do things seriously to prevent injuries and for your opponent’s sake, too. But…

We’re idols after all! Giving a performance that’ll catch on is more important! I don’t think it’s a good idea to overlook that!

【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png I’m sorry, everyone… I felt I was the only one making no progress, so I harshly took it out on you all…
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png That’s fine. You got upset because you were putting everyone into consideration, weren’t you?

All that happened was your words getting harsh because you’re so serious about it.

【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png Yep, yep. Juncchi’s a diligent guy~.
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png But really, you should let your shoulders loosen up a bit.

If you’re stuck like that forever, then you’ll get tired, you know?

【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png …Jun… For a change of pace… taking breaks is important… too…
【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png ……That’s correct as well. I guess I’ll… take a break for a while.

【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png All right, so… Let’s end practice here and all go out to get something good to…
【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png Haruna-san! I said we could take a break, but I didn’t say we could stop with practice!

We haven’t finished with today’s basic training menu, and I want to put it into practice…

【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png Ahaha… Jun, you’re so serious. I was just joking!
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama T.png It’s just like Jun says. Since we’re showing up for it, we’re gonna aim for victory!
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png If that’s how we’re doing things, let’s try to do it so that we add humor while we’re winning!
【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi T.png Shiki-kun. What you’re saying sounds simple, but it’s not going to be as easy to make it happen in reality.
【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki T.png …So… that means it’s time for Coach Haruna to… show us what he’s got…
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato T.png Me? …Okay, leave it to me!

【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png What the heck is this all about!? I can’t let this happen, no way, no how! It’s totally horrible!!
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama+ T.png What’s up, Shiki? You look so agonized over carrying your judo uniform.
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png Hayatocchi, don’t you think that this judo uniform is, like, hyper plain!?
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama+ T.png …Huh? What about it being plain is bothering you? It’s just a judo uniform. What else could it be?
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png Can’t it be more flashy and stand out more ‘cuz it’s an idol program!

Like with red or with stripes, or like leopard print… This has absolutely no sense of individuality~!!

【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi+ T.png Well… it doesn’t have much idol-ness to it, as an outfit. It doesn’t draw the eye, I’d say.
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png You get me, don’t you, Juncchi! This’ll make me totally un-me…

【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki+ T.png Speaking of which… the parka you’re wearing… I feel like I remember it… from somewhere…
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png You remember this, Natsukicchi! This is the same brand as the time we did the summer festival!

The design I like is separated into both summer and winter clothes.

【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi+ T.png Haah. That is… definitely a great dedication you have.
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya T.png Not to brag or anything, but I’m hyper-tuned in to the dedication I have about fashion.

I like wearing my favorite clothes just as much as I like singing!!

【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama+ T.png But I really do think that using the same design for summer and winter is going overboard…?
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato+ T.png Uhh. I don’t really understand how that feels, so I wouldn’t know…

【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya+ T.png Ah— by the way… Is it okay for me to keep my glasses on during matches?
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama+ T.png No, no, that’s totally not okay… They’ll probably tell you that it’s dangerous and you’ll have to take them off.
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya+ T.png But my glasses are my trademark! If I take them off, no one will know who I am!
【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki+ T.png They’ll probably announce you… using a caption or something…
【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi+ T.png People who know about us in the first place will be able to distinguish you whether or not you have glasses on.
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato+ T.png Hey, Shiki. If your glasses are so important to you, should I draw glasses on your face?
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya+ T.png You’re so mean, Harunacchi! I’m seriously mega-worrying about this!

If you’re gonna tease me for that… I’ll do this to you! Take this! Tickling attack!

【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato+ T.png …PFFT! HAHA! Okay— okay— I got it, so don’t tickle m—… Ahyahya!

【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya+ T.png Haah… This uniform’s plain, glasses are forbidden… nothing good’s coming from this…

With this, my identity’s totally ruined… Uuugh…

【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato+ T.png What’re you so worried about, Shiki~. It’s not like you, man.
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya+ T.png I’m sure you wouldn’t understand… How down in the dumps I feel…
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato+ T.png Well, yeah, since I don’t really understand. Is it really something to worry about?

If you don’t have your flashy clothes and glasses, it’s not like you’ll become a different person.

【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya+ T.png But both of them are my trademark! If I don’t have that, then…
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato+ T.png You’re always full of energy and good at getting on the groove— that’s you, isn’t it? In fact, I think the way you are now is less like you.
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya+ T.png Harunacchi…!

WHOAAA—, you’re right! I’m excited now! Mega-thanks to you!

【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama+ T.png The actual thing’s going to start soon… My heart’s thumping so hard. This might be a little too late for everyone else, but…

Guys, let’s work with all we got today! It’s a rare chance to show up on TV. If we make it work here, then I’m sure it’ll be a big plug for the rest of our jobs from now on.

【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato+ T.png Let’s get fired up enough that we don’t end up too stiff, and let’s do our best!
【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki+ T.png ……Yeah. It’ll be fine. We all practiced a lot…
【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi+ T.png All that’s left is to do the very best we can do…… 【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya+ T.png
【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi+ T.png And aim to win!
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya+ T.png And outshine everyone by standing out!
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama+ T.png Huh…? Are those two… gonna be okay…?

【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya+ T.png All right, then… I’m first up. I’ll hook the viewers’ eyes’n catch their attention!
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato+ T.png Hey—, Shiki! Your glasses! You gotta take those off!
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya+ T.png Sorry, I absolutely can’t take these off, no matter what! Now, let’s…

Huh? It’s an issue of safety, so I can’t? No matter what I do!? Oh, staff member, please, can’t I… JUST… I REALLY CAN’T…? Ugh! Once my match is over, I’ll put it right back on!

【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi+ T.png Nn… It’s almost my turn… It really does make me nervous, like I thought.
【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki+ T.png Jun… Be careful… make sure you don’t get hurt. At the very least… don’t push yourself too hard…
【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi+ T.png Thank you, Natsuki. But I want to do the best I can and push my limits.

Whether it’s for lives or photoshoots, they’re the same. I don’t want to leave any regrets behind, as a member of High×Joker. That’s why… I want to strive for this with all my ability.

【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama+ T.png Jun, you got this—! I understood loud and clear how passionate you feel!
【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi+ T.png …Y-you heard me, Hayato!?

…Ugh… This is so embarrassing…!

【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato+ T.png Unfortunately, High×Joker ended up not winning…
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama+ T.png Darn it—, I was trying to aim for total victory, though…
【Strong Feeling】Jun Fuyumi+ T.png Our rivals were simply that strong. They must have practiced a great deal as well.
【Judo Meet】Natsuki Sakaki+ T.png Even after we tried with all we could… we lost. We can’t cry… over spilt milk. We all worked hard.
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato+ T.png But I was surprised that not only Shiki, but also Hayato, managed to pull off some big moves.
【Dripping in Water】Shiki Iseya+ T.png The director complimented us and said that our unit’s got good promises for the future!
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato+ T.png That’s awesome. I also think I heard squealing voices from the audience seats when Natsuki was up.
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama+ T.png Jun, you were so close to managing to hit your opponent well.
【Judo Meet】Haruna Wakazato+ T.png With this much standout performance, they might just use a lot of our moments when it airs!
【Judo Meet】Hayato Akiyama+ T.png Yeah, I’m excited for the day it broadcasts. Let’s record it and save the date to keep track of it!
