–CiRCLE Cafeteria– Lisa: Sorry for the wait! I booked the studio for next time. Rinko: Thank you…for taking care of it each time… Lisa: It’s fine, it’s fine, I’ve already gotten used to it☆ Sayo: …Um, Udagawa-san. Ako: Eh? What is it? Sayo: It’s just that you seemed to be rushing on the drums all the time today. Ako: Ah… Lisa: Ako? If there’s something that’s troubling you, just say it~ Ako: Really!? Lisa: Yes really, right, Yukina? Yukina: …Yes, if you’re in a slump, it will affect the whole band. So if you have a problem, then you should solve it sooner rather than later. Ako: Th-Then…Will you listen to my request…? Yukina: Request…? What is it… Ako: Please play NFO with me! Sayo: NFO…? Rinko: …It stands for Neo Fantasy Online…it’s an online game…that Ako and I play. Ako: Actually, there’s a friend introduction campaign going on in NFO at the moment, where if you clear a quest with new players, you can get a super cool weapon! Yukina: Quest? Weapon? I don’t really understand what you’re saying. Lisa: Umm, so in other words, if you play the game with us, you can get something good? Sayo: …What does that have to do with you playing too fast in today’s practice? Ako: I’ve…wanted that weapon for a long time…so it was on my mind…so… Rinko: Ako-chan, that’s why you were so fidgety wasn’t it… Ako: Yeah…so, please! Yukina: I refuse. Ako: Eeeh!? Sayo: I agree with Minato-san. The game and the band have no relation to each other at all, so you should just set something like this aside during practice and concentrate on the performance. Ako: Th-That’s…true but. Lisa: I do understand the feeling of not being able to sit still when you have something on your mind though. So I might try it out. Ako: Lisa-nee~~ Lisa: What about you two? Are you still not going to do it no matter what? Sayo: …What will you do, Minato-san Rinko: The quest…will be short. I don’t think it will take much time… Ako: Yukina-san…! Yukina: …Fine. Ako: R-Really!? Yay! Rinko: Isn’t that great, Ako-chan… Ako: However, once we’re done, band practice will… Ako: Okay! In that case, let’s go to a net cafe tomorrow! Sayo: …You agreed to that pretty easily, is it going to be okay, Minato-san? Yukina: I’ve come to realise recently that it’s a waste of time to just oppose things at times like this. …But, I’ll think of this as something necessary to aim higher as a band and take it seriously. –Net Cafe– Lisa: So, Ako. What should we do? Ako: One person goes into one of these booths each, and you just login and play from there! These computers already start on NFO so it should be simple! Yukina: We can play together even when using different computers? Rinko: We go on an adventure in the same place…once we’re online. Ako: Fire up the game…ah, what do you want for your class? Sayo: We have jobs inside the game? Rinko: It’s to decide…your role.
I’m a wizard, and Ako-chan is…a necromancer… Ako: Lisa-nee feels like a healer don’t you think? Lisa: Eh? A healer? …what’s that? Ako: Someone who heals everyone! Lisa: Eh…so I have that kind of image. Okay! I’ll try that then! Rinko: Do you have…any class you want to try…Yukina-san? Yukina: I don’t really know, there are so many…what do you think would be good? Ako: Yukina-san…is good at singing so I think a bard! It’s a class that buffs everyone else by using songs! Yukina: There’s a class that sings…okay, I’ll be that then. Sayo: All that’s left is me. Let’s see…is this class difficult to use? Rinko: That’s a tank…It’s a class that uses a big shield…to protect everyone from monster attacks… It’s difficult…but since we’re just playing at the beginning…I think it will be fine. Sayo: I see… then I’ll try this. Yukina: Do you like this class? Sayo: Not particularly…it seemed safe since has good defence. Lisa: Ahaha☆ That’s just like Sayo~ Ako: After that…ah, what about for your name? You can use whatever name you like in the game… Rinko: If we’re playing just this once…it will probably be fine for them all to just use their names… Ako: I see! Then, I’ll make their characters like that then. Ako: Done! Are you all ready? Yukina: Yes. Lisa: Uuh, I’m a bit nervous! Rinko: Everyone…when the game starts…just stay in the starting place. Sayo: Understood. Ako: Okay! Then, let’s start NFO!
