The Puppy Stickers

Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Just slap this sticker on the chart aaand..done!


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
What are you up to, Mei Fan? Some new kind of fortune-telling?


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Michiru-san! No, no. I was making up a schedule for the student council members!


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
A schedule?


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Given how competent the Edels are, you may never have needed one before, but...


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
With everyone's schedules pulled together in one place, it's easy to see who's working on what and how long it'll take them!


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
And being able to visually track the other's progress makes it easier to help out when it's needed.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
I figured this was a good way to improve the student council's overall productivity. And this is the prototype!


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Wow, you've even noted how many days it took to prepare for events last year. This IS convenient. Akira will love this.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
You really think so, Michiru-san!?


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
For sure! Want to go show it to her now?


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Yes, please!


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Look at this, Akira-san!


Akira (icon).png Akira:
A schedule...for the five of us?


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Mei Fan designed it.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Did she now? It's certainly very easy to follow.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Th-Thank you, Akira-san!


Akira (icon).png Akira:
However...


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Is something wrong with it!? I can fix anything you don't like, just let me know!


Akira (icon).png Akira:
It's not that I don't like it, but...


Akira (icon).png Akira:
What are the horse stickers for?


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Apologies for not mentioning that sooner! Those stickers represent Shiori!


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Writing our names in would make things too cramped, so I've used stickers the way a computer would use icons.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
And the hamster stickers?


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Are for Michiru-san. The big sparkling eyes reminded me of her.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Stop, you'll make me blush.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
And this?


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
A cat for Yachiyo. She's pretty cat-like, both her looks and her personality. And this monkey is for me.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Which means the lion stickers are...


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
You, Akira-san!


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
I thought only you were worthy of a sticker depicting the king of the beasts!


Akira (icon).png Akira:
...I see.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Absolutely!


Akira (icon).png Akira:
If I may make one point clear, Mei Fan.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
O-Of course!


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Those who truly stand at the top don't fuss over animal stickers.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
.....!


Akira (icon).png Akira:
...You could just as well give me the puppy stickers lying unused on the sheet there.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
What!?


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
I-I couldn't possibly! A puppy, for YOU, Akira-san!? No, you're something far more imposing, far more inspiring!


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
But you are right. I was wrong to force the lion on you! Even a lion is only an animal. It could never hope to be a match for you, Akira-san!


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
I'll have stickers of you designed and printed immediately!


Akira (icon).png Akira:
No, I...


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
......


Akira (icon).png Akira:
...What?


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
No, nothing.

The Faces of the Student Council President

Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Michiru-senpai! How does this look for next year's club budget allotments?


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Right-o, let's take a look.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Hmmm, this looks just a bit high.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Goodness, even pared down that far?


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Let's trim just a bit more fat ♪ And then if anyone complains, raising it to this level should satisfy them.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Oooh, very clever. Copy that!


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Then have Shiori make copies and bind them into booklets.


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Excuse me, where are the balance sheets...?


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Shiori. Third shelf. They're all in a blue folder. Have a look ♪


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Oh, right! Thank you!


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
I got the chairman's signature!


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Your timing's perfect, Mei Fan.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
I was about to draft plans for next year's cultural events. Want to try helping?


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Isn't that the single most time-consuming piece of paperwork?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
I heard last year's took three full days to write up... Going around getting confirmation from everybody was a nightmare, right?


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Three days!


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Still, I think it's a worthwhile experience.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
If you say so, then sign me up!


Akira (icon).png Akira:
I'm back.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Welcome back ♪


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Where were you, Akira-senpai?


Akira (icon).png Akira:
I did the rounds and confirmed all the details of the cultural events plans.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Huh!?


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
W-Wait a minute. Isn't that the thing that's supposed to take three days?


Akira (icon).png Akira:
In years past, yes. I made a few changes to the procedure this year.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
I made arrangements with each party to secure the necessary approvals ahead of time, and so on.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Even a minor adjustment to the process yielded drastic improvements to efficiency.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
That's our Akira. Edel among Edels!


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
I'll follow you anywhere!


Akira (icon).png Akira:
If you have time to state the obvious, get back to work.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Ngh!? Y-Yes, ma'am!


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Michiru, I'm heading out to resolve another matter. I leave things here to you.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
On it ♪


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Yukishiro-senpai really is amazing...


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
I'm lucky to have her as a senpai. In that it would be a nightmare trying to play senpai to THAT.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Akira's done so much already. We're got to do our share, too.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Wh-Whoa... Can you all come look at this a second!?


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Mei Fan-senpai!? What's the matter?


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
It;s the cultural events planning document Akira-san made. The whole thing is hand-written!


Huh?

Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Oh, right. Yeah... Akira can put documents together faster by hand.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
How is that event... How superhuman IS she? Though this is a pretty weird direction to evolve in.


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Still, it's very impressive. Her penmanship is so clean I thought it was typed and printed out at first...


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
The only problem being that we have to submit it digitally, so now someone gets to type all of that in ♪


Whaaat!?

Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Oh, relax! It'll go fast enough if we all pitch in!


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Akira-senpai, come baack...


Akira (icon).png Akira:
*achoo*


Akira (icon).png Akira:
(Am I coming down with something? I need to take better care of myself.)

Akira (icon).png Akira:
The tail fur is pretty impressive, no? Yachiyo really outdid herself. ...Care to touch it?

Akira (icon).png Akira:
I've been thinking about the flower at the heart of "Beauty & the Beast." Doesn't it strike you as curious? It could have been a lily or an orchid. Why a rose?


Akira (icon).png Akira:
I believe that just as the phrase "every rose has its thorns" suggests, the author wanted to say that everyone has their faults.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
The Beast has his pride, but he's far from the only thorny rose in the story. I suppose you'll have to wait and see it on stage.
