It's crucial that the three of us each build our stamina in an efficient manner.

Thus, I believe it would be counterproductive to risk damage to the body by forcing ourselves to engage in competition.

Their medical effectiveness has been backed with scientific evidence, so grapes continue to be utilized for their healing properties today.

Mag-kaoru-28-07.png
Kaoru: Nowadays, they are often praised for their high concentration of polyphenols. However, they're also rich in other minerals including, but not restricted to, potassium and iron.

In addition, grape seed extract has shown to have beneficial effects towards improving cardiovascular health and lowering blood pressure. I would highly recommend that everyone drink this.

Kaoru: (Sigh.) Certainly, that would leave an impression. But realistically?
Mag-kaoru-39-07.png
Kaoru: We'll be on the heliport of a skyscraper. Taking safety concerns into consideration, I'd suggest that we not.
Mag-kaoru-39-08.png
Tsubasa: He's right. The wind will be much stronger at the top of the building, too. It sounds dangerous.

Teru: I guess you have a point...

Mag-kaoru-39-09.png
Tsubasa: But since we'll be on a stage in the sky, wouldn't it be wonderful if we could use that to our advantage?
Mag-kaoru-39-10.png

Mag-kaoru-39-11.png
Kaoru: We might be able to include it in the performance.

Mag-kaoru-45-06.png
Teru: How's it any different from kendo?

Kaoru: There are two types of competition in naginata: one that focuses on sparring, much like kendo, and another that judges your form and technical performance, much like karate.

Mag-kaoru-45-07.png
Tsubasa: What we want to do is incorporate naginata forms into our dance, so between those two, we'd be performance.

sfx: swish

Mag-kaoru-45-08.png
Kaoru: Well, our focus is on the choreography, so the forms we take won't be exactly accurate. But you're right.
Mag-kaoru-45-09.png

**T/N: Reference to the dōka poem of the Tendō-ryū martial arts school, which is known in modern days for its mastery with the naginata. The full quote is: 極意とて別にきわまる事もなし たえぬ心のたしなみを云ふ / The path to the innermost secret is reached not through ritual, but through the way of a persistent heart. (Ref)

Curiously enough, the "Tendo" in this school's name uses the same characters as Teru's name!
