Karen (icon).png Karen:
Clau-chan! Bonjour!


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Karen, it's evening already. The evening greeting is "bonsoir."


Karen (icon).png Karen:
Wait a second... But you always say "bonjour" even in the afternoon!


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
"Bonjour" is what you say all day until evening to mean either "good morning" or "good afternoon."


Karen (icon).png Karen:
Ah, okay! I'm learning stuff from you!


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Rather than learning French, you'd better study for the English test, Karen.


Karen (icon).png Karen:
Ugh... Touche...

Library

Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Hikari, what kind of classes did you take at your school at England?


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
Basic practice, drama theory. Improv with classmates.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
That's not too different from what we have. Hey, want to do improvisation with me?


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
Here?


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Here I go... "Emily, I love you truly! Can you not return my feelings?"


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
"Why do you refuse to speak, Emily? Don't tell me your heart is already being warmed by thoughts of another!"


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
You shouldn't talk loudly in the library.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Why you didn't you say that before I started?!

Park

Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Ahh, the weather's lovely today.


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
Yes, it's so pleasantly warm.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
It's nice to just kick back and relax sometimes.


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
Yeah...


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
By the way, I brought sandwiches. Would you like one?


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Bien sur! Of course! Now it feels like a picnic!


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
Heh heh, yeah.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
C'est bon! This sandwich is exquisite!


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
I made it following Banana-chan's recipe. I'm glad you like it!


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
Let's come here to soak up some sunshine again!


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Sure, if you bring sandwiches!

Train Station

Junna (icon).png Junna:
Well, this is unusual.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Ce qui? What is?


Junna (icon).png Junna:
You inviting me to see a play together.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
I love how observant you are, and your analysis is very much on point. I thought it'd be interesting to see a play together and then discuss it.


Junna (icon).png Junna:
O-Oh... Now I feel a little embarrassed.


Junna (icon).png Junna:
But you know, I'd also like to hear your thoughts on a play.


Junna (icon).png Junna:
And I'm interested in the play itself, too.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
That's great. Let's go!


Junna (icon).png Junna:
Can I just ask you one thing?


Junna (icon).png Junna:
Do you also watch plays with Tendo-san?


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Huh? N-No way!


Junna (icon).png Junna:
Hmm... I would have thought that if you were to invite anyone, it'd be her.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
(I can't tell her how embarrassing it is that Maya Tendo always makes note of the exact same things I do!)

Library/span>

Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Found you, Maya Tendo!


Maya (icon).png Maya:
My, if it isn't Saijo-san. Did you want something?


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
I wanted to give this back to you. It's the DVD I borrowed.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Thank you for going out of your way to come and return it. So, what did you think of it?


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
It was an epic film--I'm not surprised it's one of your favorites. The costumes and the splendor of the settings were the most impressive I've seen to date.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
The plot twist at the end took me by surprise, too. It was a great film. Merci.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
I'm glad you enjoyed it.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Following others' recommendations is a great way to learn something new or find inspiration.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
If you only watch movies you choose yourself, you end up picking similar ones that suit your taste.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
And that's why I have for you a movie recommendation for you... No, actually, it's from Futaba!


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Excuse me?


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Ta-da! "The Cursed Stage"! The scariest Japanese horror ever made, apparently!


Maya (icon).png Maya:
.....!


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Futaba lent it to me, but I don't really like Japanese horror. It's too scary for me to watch.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
So I'm giving it to you. I'll let Futaba know.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
.....


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Something wrong?


Maya (icon).png Maya:
N-No, of course not! I will...be very happy to watch it. Can't wait!


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Great! It's supposed to be super terrifying, so I'd love to hear your thoughts about it. See you!


Maya (icon).png Maya:
.....


Maya (icon).png Maya:
.........


Maya (icon).png Maya:
...............


Maya (icon).png Maya:
I can't tell her I'm not good with scary movies either... I must live up to her expectations and watch it!


Maya (icon).png Maya:
.....


Maya (icon).png Maya:
.........


Maya (icon).png Maya:
........I'm scared.

Main Street

Nana (icon).png Nana:
You know what I've always thought?


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
What? You're awfully close...


Nana (icon).png Nana:
Your skin looks so silky smooth.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Oh? Thanks. I've been taking good care of it every day since my days as a child actress.


Nana (icon).png Nana:
Really, all that time?


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
There were the theater plays. photo shoots... People were always watching me, so I became very conscious of the need for good skin care.


Nana (icon).png Nana:
Wow, that's Clau-chan for you!


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Anyway, you have very good skin, too. What's your beauty regimen?


Nana (icon).png Nana:
Oh, I don't do anything special. Although maybe it's thanks to the banana face masks.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
B-Banana face masks? Never heard of them! I'd like to try that, too!


Nana (icon).png Nana:
No problem! We'll need to buy some bananas on the way home, then.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Is she actually using bananas for beauty? I guess I should've expected that from Nana!

Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
Hyah! Hah! Take that!


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Bravo! Your stage fighting is as powerful as always.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
Huff... Huff... Heh, you think?


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
I think your fighting sequences are the best in our school. Even Maya Tendo can't fight as well as you can.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
Haha! Flattery will get you nowhere! But yeah, I'm not about to let anyone get the better of me in fight scenes.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
I'm sure. In other words...


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
If I manage to surpass you in fighting, I'll be number one in the school.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
Ah, so that's what you were getting at.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
You're as greedy as ever... But do you seriously think you can win against me?


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Heh, I won't deny being greedy. So I'll take the number one spot that I crave!


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
Sounds like fun. Come at me, Clau-ko!

Seisho Music Academy Lesson Room

Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Tsk, what is it, Clau-han? I'm busy taking a break now.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
I was thinking that in addition to energetic, dynamic dances, I'd like to learn more subtle ones too, and improve my expressiveness.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
You're the only student who specializes in that sort of dance, Kaoruko Hanayagi, head of the Senka-ryu school of Japanese dance.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
The head of the school is my grandmother. So...you'd like to see my dancing?


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Yes, please.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
It will cost you, you know. And it won't be cheap.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
I'll share my math notes with you for a month.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Deal! Behold, the pinnacle of Senka-ryu dance!


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Whoa, you don't have to go that far, Kaoruko!

Shopping Mall

Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
That rakugan is higashi, or dry confectionary. These nerikiri and seppei are namagashi, which are more moist.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Hmm... There are so many different kinds of Japanese confectionery.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Of course. Such is the richness of Japanese culture.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
And they all go well with green tea?


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Naturally. They're an irresistible match with fragrant matcha at a tea ceremony.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
But that said, everyone's tastes are different. Whatever you pair it with, the confectionary won't be offended.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Futaba went as far as to claim gyuhi goes well with milk...


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
You sound kind of upset about that. But that's good to know...


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
I think this white one could be paired with strong Ceylon tea. The colors would offset each other prettily.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
White sweet potato nerikiri with Ceylon tea? I'm not convinced that's a good idea.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
You won't know unless you try.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Well, there's a wide variety for you to try. Mochi, bean jelly, gyuhi, tsuyabukusa...


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
I'm up for that! I guess I should buy one of everything here!


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
...Hold on a minute. You're encouraging me to buy so many just because you want to eat them, aren't you?


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Oh, you caught me.

Shopping Mall

Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Wow, they've got a big slection. It's not like the stores in Paris, but still.


Nana (icon).png Nana:
Right? If it's a brooch you want to buy, this is the place!


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Maybe I'll find a nice one here.


Nana (icon).png Nana:
Oh, Clau-chan! Look at this one! What do you think? Isn't it cute?


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
A...frog brooch? You really like frog-themed accessories, Nana.


Nana (icon).png Nana:
Yes, I love them! They're pretty, adorable, and stylish.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
A silver frog? Oh, and it's got little glass balls between its toes.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
It's chic, and the silver shine is beautiful. It would look good on a dress as well, not just casual clothes.


Nana (icon).png Nana:
That's what I thought too!


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
I like it. I'll buy this one.


Nana (icon).png Nana:
Yay!


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Thanks to you, I found an even nicer brooch than I hoped for.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Thanks for coming shopping with me, Nana. Merci.


Nana (icon).png Nana:
You're welcome!


Nana (icon).png Nana:
Got another one to come over to the frog side... Teehee!


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Huh? Sorry, did you say something?


Nana (icon).png Nana:
Nope! Ribbit...

Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Huff... Huff... One step further than the day before...


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
I'm the only one who can stand beside Maya Tendo.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
I'm the only one she sees as serious competition.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
I'll steal her spotlight and show her how it feels to be second best!


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
That's what being rivals is all about!

Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
What are you watching, Karen?


Karen (icon).png Karen:
"Magical Girl Starshine"! I used to watch this when I was little. You don't know it?


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Not at all.


Karen (icon).png Karen:
It's an ultra-masterpiece! An international treasure!


Karen (icon).png Karen:
And it was even made into a play recently!


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Is it that good? Mind if I watch it with you?

Starlight Hall Dorm

Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Oh, Hikari! Bonjour!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
Bonjour.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Huh!? You can speak French, too?


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
No.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Oh. Your pronunciation was perfect, so I was suprised.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
I have an ear for it.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Hmm... I can teach you French, if you want. Then we could perform the French version of "Starlight" together.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
I'll pass. Sounds like a lot of work.

Seisho Music Academy Classroom

Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
Hey, Clau-chan... What do you think is the most important thing for Stage Girls?


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Let me think... Acting, singing, and dancing are definitely up there on the list...


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
But if you don't have the stamina to perform well until the end of a performance, it's all for nothing.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
So my answer would be physical fitness.


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
I see. Maybe you're right.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
I'm going out for a run later today to build stamina. Do you want to join me?


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
Sure! I'll do my best to keep up!

Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Oh, you cut your hair, Maya Tendo.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
I just had it slightly trimmed. I'm surprised you noticed.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Anyone would see it at a glance.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
In fact, no one besides you did.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Oh...


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Heh. You pay more attention to me than any of my fans.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
You wish! You think too highly of yourself!


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
And one more thing...


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
You've secretly started dieting, haven't you?


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Excuse me? How do you know about that?


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
I think you're, well...just fine the way you are now, you know.

Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Whew... I overdid it today with my training. I'm so tired...


Nana (icon).png Nana:
Been working hard again, Clau-chan? Would you like a massage?


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Thanks, Nana. Since you're offering...


Nana (icon).png Nana:
Sure, let me get started. *squeeze*


Nana (icon).png Nana:
Hmm... Your muscles are all knotted. You're sensitive to cold, aren't you?


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
You can tell just by messaging me?


Nana (icon).png Nana:
Can't hide anything from me!


Nana (icon).png Nana:
Don't just take showers. Take a good, long bath every now and then.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
You know your stuff. Okay, I'll do as you say.


Nana (icon).png Nana:
Teehee!

Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Nice job, Maya Tendo! Although your grand fouette toda was somewhat wobbly, wasn't it?


Maya (icon).png Maya:
I did not notice. Whew...


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
And you're out of breath. No way...


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
I knew it! You're running a fever! Get back to the dorm and get some rest.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
No need to fuss over me. I have to continue practicing...my solo practice...


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
You can't even talk clearly! You fail as a Stage Girl if you can't take care of yourself properly.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
You know what? I'm taking you back to the dorm.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Okay. Thank you, Claudine Saijo.

Nana (icon).png Nana:
I brought my special banana cream puffs today! I made a lot, so eat as much as you like.


Nana (icon).png Nana:
Here's some for you, Clau-chan.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
Banana cream puffs?


Nana (icon).png Nana:
It's banana-flavored custard inside.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
That's rather avant-garde... Where did you get the idea for it?


Nana (icon).png Nana:
I was thinking about how to make the best use of the ingredients I had, and this is what I thought of.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
You sound just like a director or a producer.


Nana (icon).png Nana:
I guess I do! I enjoy behind-the-scenes work, too.

Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
*yawn*


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
You seem pretty sleepy. Were you up late studying for a test?


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
Yeah... But it's no use. I spent all night on it but nothing stayed in my head.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
I'm really bad at memorizing things.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
But you can learn lines for performances?


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
Oh... Yeah, somehow.


Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
So maybe, if you imagine you're memorizing lines for a play...


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
That's it! Good thinking, Clau-ko!

Claudine (icon).png Claudine:
No matter how close you are with someone, you should take care yo express your gratitude. Right?
