Side Memories[edit | edit source]
|What did you wanna talk about, Producer? ...An offer just for me? Ooh, I'm being invited to guest on a quiz show?|
|Isn't this a really popular show? You can do it, Teru-san!|
|If I recall, this program is infamous for the difficulty of its trivia questions... Are you sure Tendou's up for the challenge?|
Oh, you know I'm sharper than I look. I'll be fine all on my own!
|Who is it? Do you know them?|
|Yeah, it looks like one of my seniors from my lawyer days is gonna be participating.|
|Oh, I've heard of this person! That's the lawyer that's been on a bunch of TV shows lately.|
|He's a super passionate and upright guy, so I've looked up to him since day one.|
|He even makes appearances on news programs. I'm surprised to hear that he's an acquaintance of yours.|
|Well, it's been ages since I last saw him. I can't let myself look bad!|
|A few days later at the agency, while meeting with the quiz show's director...|
|Director||"Idol Snatches Victory on his First Try!" Just imagine how dramatic that headline would be. The people would go wild!|
So—and this stays between you and me, but—I'm gonna slip you the question bank we'll be using. Be ready for them.
Your fame is gonna explode if you win, Tendou-kun! Not a bad offer, eh?
(...So basically, he wants me to stage a win to make his show look good?)
|Director||Wellll... Easier said than done, y'know? Our questions are, like, super-ultra-mega hard?|
|Hard problems? That's hardly a problem! Juuust kidding...|
|Director||Hrmm... Well, I guess I can't force you. I'll figure out some other way to make the people go wild!|
|(The director leaves.)|
|Sorry 'bout that, Producer. I kinda turned him down by reflex, but... was that a bad idea?|
|I knew you'd respond to him like that.|
Really? ...Heheh. I'm glad you and I are on the same wavelength.
|Let's polish up your trivia skills!|
|Good plan! I'll sneak some time in between jobs to study like there's no tomorrow. Let's win this thing!!|
|(Meanwhile, outside of the agency...)|
|Director||Well, it is what it is. Time to switch to plan B and hit that guy up again!|
Interesting... So it looks like the questions they ask usually fall into certain categories.
|How does a break sound?|
|You brought me coffee! Good idea, I'll take a short break.|
Y'know, I didn't think I'd ever be hunching over a desk studying like this at my age.
|Hey! Do you remember me? It's Tendou Teru! I quit being a lawyer, but now I'm an idol, and...|
|Celebrity lawyer||Yes—I'm familiar with your current activities, Tendou. Best of luck to the both of us today.|
|Certainly! I look forward to filming with you!|
(...I see. These questions really are tough to chew on, just like they said.)
|TV host||Tendou Teru delivers yet another correct answer! Amazing! He's got a perfect record so far!!|
|TV host||...It's time to announce the results. And the winner is... Tendou Teru of DRAMATIC STARS!!|
|...I won...?! YESSSSS!! All my hard work paid off!|
|TV host||Congratulations! What an amazing achievement!|
|Thank you very much! It was worth putting all those hours into studying for today!|
|Celebrity lawyer||.......That little...|
|Great work out there! What's the matter? You didn't have to come all the way to my dressing room...|
|Celebrity lawyer||...You really screwed things up, Tendou. This is a mess.|
|Celebrity lawyer||The plan was for me to win in today's show.|
So why are you coming out on top? I'm supposed to be known for my smarts—how do you think this'll affect my reputation?!
|...Stop right there. What plan...?|
|(Teru flashes back to the director.)|
Don't tell me... You let them give you the questions ahead of time?!
|Celebrity lawyer||Tch... You're so naive. I'll do anything I can to protect my status.|
Listen... you won't last very long in this world with that kind of mindset!
|(The lawyer leaves Teru's dressing room.)|
|(What in the world happened to him...?)|
|Are you alright?|
...Haha, sorry 'bout that. I'm fine. Thanks for looking out for me, Producer.
"Tendou Teru Suspected Cheating on Quiz Show?" "Anything to win the grand prize..." huh.
|I'll go prove your innocence!|
Producer, wait! ...I actually have an idea of who might've spread this rumor.
|Thanks a ton. ...Well, let's get moving. First, we need a plan of attack.|
So that quiz show... You were the one that spread those lies to the press.
|Celebrity lawyer||...You haven't changed a single bit, have you? Still a goody-two-shoes with a sharp mind.|
I used to be like you. Always believing in justice, doing my job in earnest.
But... at some point, my focus shifted to protecting my status. My reputation.
Running into you at the show made me realize how much of a disgusting person I'd become.
My hands have long been stained. I just couldn't stand myself anymore...!
|...You can still turn things around. If you're the same person that I knew back then...|
|Celebrity lawyer||Shut up! For someone who quit being a lawyer and jumped into a completely different world...|
...Yet never lost heart, and kept leading an honest life as an idol...
You could never understand the shame I feel!!
......Trust me. I know what it's like to lose heart.
|TV host||Next up is DRAMATIC STARS, the group that's been picking up steam lately!|
Before we get into the music, would you have any thoughts or messages you'd like to share with the audience?
|...Then, I'll go first. Sakuraba, Tsubasa—sorry, but could I have some time?|
|(Tsubasa and Kaoru give Teru the floor.)|
So, I'm a latecomer to the idol world, especially when you compare me to all the younguns.
|"It's important that you never give up..." What a wonderful message!|
|...It's very fitting for you to give a speech about motivation and determination.|
Heheh. So what I'm saying to the people sitting at the TV is...
Someone issued a formal apology to 315 Production? I see, so it was my senior...
Heheh. It's been a while since you've been here, right? I know you remember this place!
|You observe that Tendou-san is still as honest and true to himself as he was on that day.|
|Right? Though I was still kind of hard to handle at first. Made some trouble for you back then.|
|How can you stay so true to yourself?|
...My ideal hero is someone that's always true to themselves, even when the going gets tough.
When I chose to leave the law firm... I didn't have any regrets.
Hey, Producer. To finish what I was saying earlier...
|I know you'll claim that star one day!|
Definitely! I'm counting on you. You'll be right there, claiming the star with us!
