QLeft.png Son of the Knight of the Round Table Lancelot, his swordsmanship rivals even his father's. On the other hand, his sincerity often leads him to doubt his place at the Round Table. From "Holy Grail's Guidance." QRight.png


Galahad's Challenge

Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
Oh, there you are. I've been looking for you, Mahiru.


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
What's wrong, Futaba-chan?


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
Um, there was something I wanted to talk to you about.


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
Huh?


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
Remember when we were doing the performance of the "The Lost Holy Grail" based on the Arthurian legends, and you made vegetable cookies for everyone?


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
I was hoping you would teach me how to make them.


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
I'd be happy to! It's unusual for you to be making sweets.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
Yeah. Well, I wanted to give them to everyone at the upcoming performance of "Trial of the Holy Knight".


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
I mean, "Trial of the Holy Knight" and "The Lost Holy Grail" are both based on the Arthurian legends.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
This time round, I'll be taking on the main role of Galahad and I'd like to bring something for everyone.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
So I thought about something nice I could give them, and then I remembered your vegetable cookies.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
They were really tasty, so I'd really like if I could make something to make everyone happy.


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
Thank you. Heh heh, it's really nice of you to say that.


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
Okay then, let's make some cookies to satisfy that desire!


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
Thanks, that would really help! Well then, I'm ready to learn. Mahiru-sensei!


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
You'll make me blush if you call me sensei... Although...


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
Although...?


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
It's like my role as Lancelot, teaching you – Galahad. It's almost like a scene from the performance.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
Oh, I get it. It's like the scene where Galahad asks his father, Lancelot, to train him!


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
You're right, if I get into my role of Galahad and you get into your role of Lancelot, my father and teacher, it fits perfectly. Let's give it a shot...


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
(Galahad)
"I am thankful for the opportunity to train with you, Father."


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
(Lancelot)
"My training is intense. Can you keep up, Galahad?"


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
(Galahad)
"Yes. I will endure your rigorous training."


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
(Lancelot)
"Hmm, that's the spirit. Let us begin."


Lancelot:
"What is it, Galahad? Have you had enough already?"


Galahad:
"No, not yet!"


Lancelot:
"Oh, it seems like there's still some fight left in you."


Galahad:
"That's right! Aaah!"


Lancelot:
"...!"


Lancelot:
"Hahaha, you were able to get a hit in... You're improving."


Galahad:
"I am unworthy of those words. This is the gift of my father's training."


Lancelot:
"Do not be so humble, Galahad. Your skill with a sword surpasses even my own."


Lancelot:
"That being the case, tomorrow's trials should pose no problem."


Galahad:
"...!"


Lancelot:
"Tomorrow is the day – the day you take the test to become a Knight of the Round Table."


Lancelot:
"If you are able to overcome this, then you will be bathed in its glory."


Lancelot:
"Galahad, make me proud."

Courageously

Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
I think the cookies are cooled down enough for us to give them a test. Here you go, Futaba-chan.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
Oh, wow!


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
...Yep! Great! These should do fine!


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
...


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
...No, something isn't right.


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
Really? I think they came out great.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
The finish on them is bad, and the taste is nowhere near as good as the ones you made...


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
...Futaba-chan.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
I need them to be even better if I want them to meet everyone's expectations....


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
...


Lancelot:
"Foolish, to say you're not going to take on the trial... What are you saying, Galahad?"


Galahad:
"Forgive me, Father. But the way I am now... I have no confidence in becoming a Knight of the Round Table."


Lancelot:
"Confidence, you say?"


Galahad:
"It may be true that I have a modicum of results from my training and I am honored to receive your approval."


Galahad:
"But...that was merely the results of practice and training – not of it being put into practice."


Lancelot:
"...Galahad."


Galahad:
"The Knights of the Round Table, including you, are heroes who have overcome many difficulties."


Galahad:
"In comparison to that, I have neither great achievements, nor do I have any success with which to boast."


Galahad:
"I have nothing that qualifies me to take the trial to become a Knight of the Round Table."


Galahad:
"So that is how you see it..."


Lancelot:
"..."


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
(Lancelot)
"Galahad. You must be courageous."


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
...! That's Lancelot's line.


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
(Lancelot)
"Nothing that qualifies you? If that is so, when will you gain such qualifications?!"


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
...!


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
(Lancelot)
"When your are victorious in battle? When you are renowned?"


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
(Lancelot)
"That way of thinking is the mark of someone who isn't qualified to undergo the trial."


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
(Galahad)
"..."


Lancelot:
"Galahad, if there were something that would qualify you to undertake the trial... That would be your courage."


Galahad:
"...My courage."


Lancelot:
"That's right. The courage to take the first step on a new path is the only qualification required to become one of the Knights of the Round Table."


Lancelot:
"I too was not a great warrior from the beginning."


Lancelot:
"I encountered many hardships, and there have been times where I felt paralyzed, unable to move."


Lancelot:
"I was always worried that I would be unable produce enough results to meet everyone's expectations."


Lancelot:
"That said... Use your courage to rid yourself of that weakness."


Lancelot:
"Resulting from that unwavering determination, I gained the confidence to proudly stand as a Knight of the Round Table."


Galahad:
"...Father."


Lancelot:
"Galahad, trust and honor only come to those who have the courage to overcome challenges."


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
It's just as Lancelot said... It's always worrying to start something new.


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
It's the same for me when I try to do something new. The first step is always the most difficult.


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
It's easy to think I'll do it when I get better...


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
But... Just as Lancelot said, a new path lies beyond those uneasy feelings.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
...


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
That's why, you need to have the courage to dive right in.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
Mahiru...


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
You're right... It's just like you said – being so weak-willed wasn't like me.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
Thanks, Mahiru. I'll try to be courageous and dive right in.


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
That's the spirit!


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
(Lancelot)
"Galahad, I believe in you. I trust that you can overcome the trials and become a glorious Knight of the Round Table."


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
(Galahad)
"Right! I will be courageous and come out of this trial victorious!"

Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
I will take on the role of Galahad in the next performance. I'm pulling out all the stops, so look forward to it!

Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
This time, I really have to thank Mahiru for helping me realize something very important.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
To have courage... Just as Mahiru's Lancelot said. That not only refers to making sweets, but it's also true for the stage.


Futaba (icon).png Futaba:
To be unafraid and just dive right in – courage to take the first step is important for both making sweets and performing!
