Hide and seek, it wants to play again.
Like a detective, I won't let it get away.
Its constantly costuming with loads of fake.
I will strip-search if I have to.
No I’m not afraid to know it no, no, no.
I am so determined.
To chase after what's hidden, and seize this day, this moment.
Wanna know! And I keep accelerate.
Wanna go! Ignition, turned on.
Its both the time to drive to truth.
Wanna seize! Stranger than any movies.
Wanna seize! Ignorance is not bliss.
They say that truth will out! Can't keep on hiding.
There's no turning back now! I'm gonna go on, I'm gonna go get what I want! As such, for the Culture Festival, Group Date Cafe IIIII IIIII IIIII Movie Room III Study Hall II Maze II Rest Stop II Group Date Cafe IIIII IIIII IIIII Movie Room III Rest Stop II Maze II As such, for the Culture Festival, our class will run a group date café.
No, no no! Forget it! What the heck is a group date café? Whose bright idea was that?! Oh crap, that was supposed to be a joke.
It was you?! I've never been on a group date, so I was a little curious You voted for it?! I only vaguely remember it, but I think we enjoyed the King's Game.
Not you too, Narukami-kun! Actually, I was kinda curious myself.
I thought it'd be fun for some laughs.
I can't believe this class Well, I wish you and Amagi the best in your other event.
Huh? What event? Entry No.
I can't believe people entered the beauty pageant! They must be mighty confident in themselves.
Why did you sign us up without asking first?! W-Well, you know how Amagi is secretly popular with the student body.
Plus we've got an idol and a detective prince! It wouldn't be a beauty pageant if these dazzling heroines didn't enter! What's that got to do with me? Excuse me for being the oddball out! Say, Senpai, do you want us to enter? You bet! Right, Yu? Now listen carefully.
This beauty pageant Bluntly put, enter the pageant! F-Fine! You've made your point.
What should we do? Think we could back out? This is quite the predicament.
W-Why don't you just enter? Well, I mean- Please enter the damn thing! It would clear away all of my doubts! I'm begging you! Make me a man! What are you talking about? I said to enter the pageant, dammit! Aren't you a detective?! How is that related?! It looks like we don't have much of a choice Senpai seems enthusiastic about it.
I might as well give it my all! Narukami and I are on the basketball team, remember? With the festival coming up, we've got a bunch of no-shows.
You're good to help us, right? But man, our class's event is so lame.
Why'd it have to be a play? Don't whine, Hammy.
Hammy? Narukami, shoot! Where did Hammy come from?! Nurse's Office Are you okay? I'm sorry.
Oh, it's okay.
It's no big deal.
I'm sorry to have worried you.
Ow, that hurt I'm sorry you had to carry this for me.
It's okay.
Are you going to practice now? Yep! After all, the Culture Festival is just around the corner.
I see.
Um I thought I'd hear you play since I'm here.
Huh?! But I'm not very good Go on.
Uh, okay I wasn't really supposed to perform at our concert.
The Symphonic Band only has two trombone players.
My senpai normally performs since he's really good, but he got hurt.
Is that right? I may not be talented, but I still love music.
I keep at it because of my dream to use my music to lift others' spirits.
That's a wonderful dream.
I've got to practice! Senpai, thank you so much.
My head feels all better now.
Senpai? I'll go once you put on a good show.
You can be pretty mean.
Yikes! They're seriously cross-dressing? That's so gross! Satonaka! Yes? "Yes?" my ass! You entered us in the cross-dressing pageant, didn't you?! Oh, that? Rise-chan said we should all have fun with this.
Talk about a lame excuse! This is cross-dressing! Cross-dressing! That's what you get for signing us up without talking to us! Don't worry.
I'll make you really pretty.
Pretty?! You sure? Yeah, I guarantee it.
Wait! Why are you suddenly cool with this? If we gotta do this, we might as well shine! This isn't the time to tout your manly pride! C'mon man, tell them! I'll do my best.
You rock, Narukami-kun! You totally get it.
What kind of torture is this? Why do I have to enter? Let's give it our all.
Leave everything to us! We'll be your producers, Senpai! Please make me cute.
Isn't Risechii entering this year's beauty pageant? They went all-out with the posters.
Isn't that amazing? This year rocks! Supposedly everyone in Inaba's going to show up.
I'd believe it! This really stinks.
I'm not the idol Risechii anymore Don't worry about it.
Let's go shopping.
Yeah What's wrong, Senpai? It's nothing.
signs: "Group Date Cafe'" V-Visit our group date café It's a group date café No one's coming, huh? We won't be using those.
Fine, we need to plant some seeds.
Seeds? When people see how fun it is, they'll loosen up and join in on it.
What's with these hideous decorations? Oh, great timing! Now there's an even number of us.
We can plant the seeds.
What? But there's four dudes and only two girls! Someone's gonna have to go on the girl's side.
That was quick! Hurry and take a seat.
And you're already in character We'll have to buckle down and enjoy the ride.
What ride? What's going on? W-Well, let's get started.
S-So, got any hobbies? H-Hobbies? Um I'm all for kung-fu, but I mainly just watch it! Jeez, this is so embarrassing! I-I, um, I-I defeat Shadows.
Hey! Shadows? What are those? Hey, stupid! That's not a hobby! It isn't? I'm sorry.
Uh, Yuko-chan, what's your hobby? Hmm Changing and fusion? Those aren't hobbies either! Okay, we'll ask the next question.
What type of girls do you like? Oh, straight to the point! Let's see, I like kind- Kanji-kun, you're next.
Don't interrupt me! I like mysterious girls that look strong but are surprisingly I wonder who that is! You're up, Nagase-kun.
I hate girls.
Eh?! What are you blushing for?! I'm not! May I go now? Wait! You just gotta stay! I don't think I could survive this getting any more awkward! It's your turn.
Got any questions? Nice going, Amagi! Let's see Which one of us would you choose to be your boyfriend? W-What made you bring that up?! That's a little personal H-Hold it! What's wrong, Hanamura-kun? I can't say, but I felt like I was about to cross a line that must never be crossed! My, you're so naïve.
Knock it off! I-I need a drink! Something cool and refreshing! I need something to cool my head! What's gotten into you, Hanamura-senpai? Sorry, but I forgot to bring drinks.
But it's a group date! I ordered delivery.
Thanks again.
T-These aren't drinks I'll just help myself.

That is the question! Hamlet He really is a ham.
The problem here is that I am Hamlet! Doesn't Hammy match him? Hey, isn't the Symphonic Band in a bit of a pinch this year? Yeah, supposedly their trombone player sucks big time.
Music Room I'm sorry I keep messing up.
I was afraid you wouldn't be up to it, Matsunaga Long time no see! Iida! Where's your cast? I recovered just in time for our big Culture Festival Concert.
Oh, about that Ah, I get it.
Let's have Iida-senpai play the trombone! It'd totally suck if she blew it during our concert.
Wouldn't you all agree? I'll step down.
You may have the part, Senpai.
Really? Are you sure? I am Could you let her play? Uh, who're you? Every day she's- Are you really sure about this? Yes! I'd hate to hold everyone back and ruin their concert if I messed up.
I see I feel like such an idiot.
I thought I was one step closer to realising my dream.
I'm so frustrated! Thank you.
It made me happy when you tried to defend me.
I'm frustrated, but I'm also happy.
After all that practice, it made me remember just how much I love music.
That's why I'm frustrated and happy You'll get another chance.
I'm sure of it.
Right I know that there's no need to cry, but but the tears won't stop! Then let's go.
Huh? Go where? There's a Culture Festival today.
We should go enjoy it.

That's freakishly plausible! Entry No.

Narukami Yu-chan! What a shock! Why?! Look at me.
Finally, we have a heroine that signed up at the last minute! She calls herself the "Queen from TV-Land"! She's one cute and sexy minx, baby! Her name is Ms.

Kumata-san, how do you feel? This is exactly what I wanted.
The girls will have to get judged in swimsuits for their pageant later today! W-What did he just say? We should kill him.
I like where this is going! That's weird I put up posters all across town, but I only see our fellow classmates.

Clean up your bloody nose.
Calculating With Entry No.
5 and No.
6 on stage, I'm going to announce the winner! Votes from the guys were everywhere, but the girls all focused in on one contestant.
Withdrew Thanks to that, the one to come out on top is Shirogane Naoto! But Shirogane-san is currently away at the moment.
She won without competing? That's hilarious! I can't believe I lost in a beauty contest! Kashiwagi-sensei, I'm so disappointed! Same here, Ohtani-san! Man, I lost.
But I can see why since they needed votes from the girls, too.
So this is where you went.
Yu-senpai The new idol Mashita Kanami-chan is on the rise.
I'm so confused.
She is filming in Inaba for her starring role in- Losing the beauty pageant really isn't a big deal.
And whatever Kanami does is of no concern of mine or it shouldn't be.
So why am I so It's natural for you to be upset.
Risechii is also a part of who you are.
Yeah, she is, isn't she? I thought I came to terms with that on the other side, but It's hard to acknowledge who you really are.
I think Thanks, even though you suck at trying to cheer someone up.
How annoying I think I'm going to return to the entertainment world this spring.
I'm going to accept that Risechii is an important part of me, and give it another shot.
Okay, sounds good.
Would you like to be my manager? No, thanks.
You're so indifferent, although that's what I like about you.
Well then, let's join up with the others.
Sure, why not? From Rise Group Date Cafe Kimi to arui ta tsuugaku ro I walked on the road to school with you, 君と歩いた 通学路 looking at the scenery spread out before us.
