Scene: Quarrel Festival Stage

Eichi: Ah... the festival music is starting to come closer.
It seems like the opening phase of the Quarrel Festival is really getting heated. Just like you planned, Anzu-chan.
You've shown great skill. You've really gotten used to your work as Yumenosaki Academy's Producer, haven't you?
You look completely different to how you were when we first met.
Hehe. I'm praising you, so why are you thanking me? How cute... hm, so Keito's told you constantly to try harder, do better?
He's horrible. He hasn't been kind in ages. But as Keito's childhood friend, I might have to go along with what he's saying.
Keito never forces you to do what's beyond your abilities.
It's because he thinks you're so capable that he's so hard on you all the time. He's really not honest -- a really annoying guy, I should say...
But what I just told you is a secret, okay?
He'd get mad at me if you told him. I've had enough of his scolding.
Ah... I wonder if I could get you to bring me that oxygen tank right next to you.
When I sing a lot during a live, I tend to get short of breath. Someone prepared it for me. Or, no. Did you bring it in for me?
You sure are prepared. Excellent. ♪ Ah, sorry, but please bring it over quickly. In truth, even just speaking like this has me so out of breath, I feel like I might die.
Inhale, exhale. Mm, I feel better. My cells have been activated, although I would've felt even better if you gave me mouth-to-mouth... ♪
I'm kidding. We mostly exhale carbon dioxide, so in fact, mouth-to-mouth would've made it even harder for me to breathe.
Plus, you'd probably palpate my heart, too. That's not good for my health.
Yeah. I've been teasing you so much, I lost track of the time. The mikoshi should be here soon. I have to warm up and get ready. ♪
What's wrong? If you have something to say, come out and say it.
I'm no longer a tyrant. I'd like to, at least, hear the opinions of my people.
If you want to tell me I shouldn't take part in the Quarrel Festival, I'll have to refuse.
As a producer, I'm sure that it's a problem if you let an idol of weak constitution overwork himself, but.



Eichi: This is my absolute top priority. As long as I can see it through to the end, I don't mind dying. So please, don't interfere.
You're a good girl, so... please don't make that face. I'll be fine.
I'd like you to stay calm and watch over me. I am still a man, after all. I'm stubborn, and I have ambition, too.
I kept provoking him, and now, Keito's finally in the mood.
There won't be any second chances. I'm really frustrated that at such an important time, I'm completely worn out, but.
A long, long time ago... before we understood anything, when we were still children. I was a very, very selfish, brat of a tyrant.
I wonder if I've grown a little since then? Even just a little.
I'm the heir to the Tenshouin family, a family who holds great influence in the entertainment industry -- no, across the whole world.
I was always surrounded by people who acted like my servants, and only ever obeyed me.
"Eichi-sama, you're amazing." "Eichi-sama, we'd expect no less." It was like being raised surrounded by a festival of people, all carrying lanterns and drums, singing my praises.
When I was younger, I... had the wrong idea about myself, and thought I must've been a king, or a god.
I was born with this disease... Death has always been close at hand, and I've always been told by doctors that my days are numbered.
Even now, I don't know how many years I have left.
That's why I lost faith in the world, sulked, found fault with everyone and everything. I blamed servants for things they'd never done and forced them to quit.
I spent money like it was nothing. I got my hands on everything I could've asked for.
But I felt empty. My fear of death never once abated.
