Act 2: A Summer of Overcomings!
Chapter 7: The Free Spirit Who Does as He Pleases
???: Onigiri are such a mystery~!
Kazunari: Could this be a legit ghost sighting?!
Muku: N-Nooooo! It’s the O-Onigiri Monster!
Ahhh I’m sure of it, the grain of rice I left behind when I was five has come back as a spirit and now it’s determined to mix me with chicken and turn me into onigiri filling……!
Izumi: (What is he talking about……?!)
Tenma: S-S-S-SOMEONE, EXORCISE IT……!
Yuki: Stop it! Get off me!
???: Does everyone here want a triangle~?
Izumi: I-It spoke……!
Kazunari: ……Heyy, who’re you~?
Misumi: Me? I’m Ikaruga Misumi~
Izumi: Kazunari-kun, how could you just go up to it and- wait, a human?
Izumi: W-well, that’s for sure, but……since he’s eating onigiri, I guess he’s not a ghost?
Masumi: His stuff’s all over the place.
Izumi: (There’s even stuff hung up……this is beyond the level of him just smuggling his personal belongings in here!)
Yuki: It’s all junk though?
Misumi: This isn’t junk~ They’re all my treasures!
Izumi: ……How long have you been living in here for?
Misumi: Mm……before something started happening at the theater?
Izumi: You were here before the Romeo and Juliet performances started?! So you’ve been here for weeks now?!
Manager: I had no idea……
Yuki: Is the security here alright……
Manager: I take locking up very seriously!
Yuki: But you’ve been avoiding this room the entire time, right.
Misumi: The window was open so I managed to get in~
Masumi: This is the second floor.
Izumi: Which means you climbed up here……?!
Manager: A-Anyway, this is trespassing! I’m reporting you to the cops!
Izumi: Say that when you’re not hiding behind Masumi-kun!
Masumi: Should we tie him up?
Misumi: Ah! Leave this onigiri alone!! It’s mine!
Kazunari: Amazeballs! He’s running on the walls!
Tenma: What extraordinary agility……
Manager: S-Stop right there! Don’t run in the corridors- I mean, on the walls of the dorm!
Izumi: That’s what you’re concerned about?!
Masumi: I’ll chase him down.
(But he’s so fast, he’s impossible to follow-)
Misumi: ……Mm? I smell something good!
Izumi: (He jumped down an entire flight of stairs?! How can his steps be this light……!)
Citron: (humming) Today’s lunch is onigiri made by me~
Where did my onigiri go?!
Misumi: (chewing) ……Delicious~
Citron: Who are you?
Misumi: (still chewing) ……I’m Misumi~
Izumi: (panting) We finally caught up to him……
Manager: T-T-T-There’s nowhere for you to run now!
Masumi: Don’t cling against my back.
Izumi: Misumi-kun, why were you living in our dorms?
Misumi: Because I have nowhere else to go~
Manager: Alright, now I just have to call the cops-
Izumi: Misumi-kun, do you have any interest in acting?
Yuki: Are you out of your mind?
Tenma: You’re kidding me!
Masumi: You’re going to recruit him?
Izumi: (That agility of his isn’t something you can find in anyone. He’s able to move like that because he has a well-trained core.)
(This is definitely a skill that’s useful in acting. We’ll even be able to add in acrobatic elements into the Summer Troupe’s performance!)
Misumi: Acting? I know what that is.
Izumi: Would you like to try it out? If you do, we’ll let you keep that room.
Misumi: Can I still eat onigiri?
Izumi: Yep. Day and night.
Misumi: I’ll do it!
Izumi: Right, we’re decided then.
Yuki: Don’t blame me even if something goes wrong.
Tenma: I’m going to have to act with that……?
Kazunari: I don’t really get what’s goin’ on, but we’re really livin’ it up now! Sumi, let’s get along!
Muku: I-I look forward to working with you.
Masumi: ……You really are okay with anyone, aren’t you?
Izumi: Don’t put it in such a misleading way!
Citron: Oooh, now the Summer Troupe’s compliant!
Izumi: Complete, you mean. And yes, we now have five members!
Yuki: So? How are we going to split the rooms?
Izumi: I guess Tenma-kun can share Room 203 with Misumi-kun?
Misumi: Hey~ Can I have another onigiri~?
Citron: Have as many as you want! In honour of the Summer Troupe.
Misumi: Yaaaaay! Triangle, triangle~!
Tenma: ……Oi, Rurikawa. I’ll make do with sharing the same room as you.
Yuki: Haaaah? No one said you had to share with me, you know?
Tenma: Shut up! I’m going to be sleeping in Room 201 whether you like it or not!
Yuki: Don’t go deciding things on your own.
Izumi: (I’m the most worried about this pair sharing the same room……)
