QLeft.png When one only has 24 hours, not even a second can be wasted. Young sailors go around town enjoying the moment. It's because they live precarious lives that they must leave no regrets. QRight.png


Clothes Have History

Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
“Ah! Is that the port of call this time? I wonder what kind of town it is.”


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
“Marion, you used to live here, right? Can you show me around after we arrive?”


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
“Yay! It’s a promise!”


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
(Hm? This line…)


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
“But it’s unfortunate that we can only stay for 24 hours. Don’t you think it’s a bit short?”


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
“I know that’s the rule but…”


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
“Well, I guess we’ll have to make the most of it then!”


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
(Energetic and leading everyone around her… Noah’s role in “Sailor’s Call” is perfect for Lalafin.)


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Hm? Huh? ...Shizuha?


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Sorry. Did I bother you with your script reading?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
No, it’s fine! I was just at a good stopping point.


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Then that’s good. I came to let you know that it’s almost time for costume fitting.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Is it ready for the first fitting? Yay!! I can wear the sailor’s clothes!


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Oh, my, were you looking forward to it this much?


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
It’s true that it feels exciting when you first try on a new costume though.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
See, a sailor’s costume is cute like a sailor school uniform, right?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
I’ve always admired sailor school uniforms so I’ve been looking forward to it since the role was decided!


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
I see. But, Lalafin… The school uniforms were originally based on the sailor’s uniform, you know?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Yeah, I know! But why did it become a school uniform now?


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
If I’m not mistaken, I think it started after the British crown prince wore it.


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
It’d originally been accepted as children’s clothes but gradually, adults would wear it too.


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
It’s been close to 100 years since it started to spread as school uniforms.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
I see! ...It’s quite a long time ago.


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Yes. That’s why today, it’s more strongly connected with being a school uniform. It can’t be helped I guess.


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Why do you admire sailor school uniforms?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Because I’ve never worn it before! It’s blazers at Frontier.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
I saw the girls at Rinmeikan wear them before so I wanted to try wearing it once.


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Did you have to wear a blazer and not a sailor school uniform when you were in junior high school too?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Actually, it was neither. In junior high, I went to school in my own clothes.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
That’s why, until I entered Frontier I never had to wear a uniform.


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
I see. It must’ve been a school that’s even more free than Frontier.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Hmm, I wonder… I’ve never compared the two but… Both schools are fun, just the same!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
What was the uniform at your junior high school like?


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Heh heh. Actually…it was a sailor school uniform.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Wow, that’s nice! I’m jealous!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
I wonder how you looked in a sailor school uniform…


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
I have pictures.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Really? I want to see!


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Hm… I don’t think it’s in my current smartphone. But the pictures from my junior high days have been printed and kept in an album so I’ll look for it.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Yes, please! Shizuha in junior high must’ve been cute. I look forward to seeing you in a sailor school uniform!!


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
When you say it like that, it’s making me feel embarrassed. ...Ah, if you don’t mind, how about showing each other our own photos?


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
I want to see what you looked like in your junior high days.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Sure! I’ll prepare a selection of photos!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Let’s show each other. I look forward to it.

Connecting History

Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
I see. I didn’t know that the collar was shaped this way to block out the sunlight. So much meaning behind a sailor’s outfit.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
They weren’t only aiming to look cool.


?
???:
Hey, Lalafin…


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
I have to make a mental note of this.


?
???:
Lalafin…


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
...Huh? Is someone calling me…?


?
???:
Lalafin, over here.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Uh… Ah, Tsukasa.


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
You finally noticed me. You had such a serious look on your face. What are you reading?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Hm? This!


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
“World’s Clothing History”...? I see you’ve rented another unique book!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Hey, I only wanted to look up the history of sailor school uniforms.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
The other day, Shizuha told me that it’s been close to 100 years since sailor uniforms started to spread as school uniforms…


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
If they have such a long tradition, then I thought the original sailor’s uniform must have even more history!


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
Right, you’ll be wearing it for the play this time. So did you find any interesting information?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Um, for example… Ah, this page! “Reason for the wide opening on the front of the sailor uniform”.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
It’s so that if you fall into the ocean, you’d be able to take it off right away. The pants are the same too.


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
Ah, because if you were wearing clothes, you wouldn’t be able to swim well and could drown…


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
That’s right. I was a bit surprised that they designed them while thinking about these possible dangerous situations from the beginning.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Life at the sea sure is rough.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
So perhaps that’s why the sailors we’re playing want to fully enjoy their 24 hour off-duty period.


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
“Sailors live precariously”, after all…


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
You don’t know what’s going to happen at sea.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Yeah…


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
...I can’t get gloomy! “Sailor’s Call” is a bright and fun play!


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
You mustn’t forget what you’re expressing while also understanding the history behind.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
You’re right! By the way, did you also come here to read some book?


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
Yes. I’m looking for “Epistles”.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Uh-pi-sul…?


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
It’s basically a document where a lot of historical letters are collected.


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
I wanted to know what kind of letters people were writing during the time period in which “Sailor’s Call” takes place.


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
See, my role is someone who admired Marion, right? I’m not a sailor—I’m a townsperson living on land.


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
My position is someone who is a symbol of everyday life.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
I see. You might understand what people felt if you read their letters.


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
And maybe what they were thinking and how they lived too.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Nice idea, Tsukasa! If you’d like, how about sharing information later?


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
I’m up for that. I also want to know the history surrounding the costume.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Alright! Let’s gather lots of interesting information. We’ll study a lot together today!

Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
If we're going to do a lively play, we have to enjoy ourselves from the bottom of our hearts so that it'll reach the people watching too ♪

Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Look, look! The sailor costume is finished! It's cute but simple so that I can move around as much as I want!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
All that's left is me building on my role until the very last minute! I'll use everything I studied and experienced in the performance!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
And that will create a priceless experience! I'd be happy if the seats were filled with the audience's smiles at the end!
