Sekimura is suddenly offered a role in a drama. Until now he's always attempted every job, but as soon as he reads the script he claims he only received the offer due to a shortage of actors...
Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa I'm sorry to bother you, Mikado-san. Thank you for coming to the office even though you're busy.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado No, it's not a problem. What was it you wanted to discuss with me?

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa Well, the truth is...

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Ah! Could it be... have I received a request to appear as a guest voice actor in Magical Girl Mamirin?!

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa N-no, unfortunately...

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Of course, I know that. Although I know I wouldn't get a request like that, certainly you'll take care of me.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa Yes. It's not for anime, but it's a request to appear in a drama. I wanted to discuss that invitation with you today.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa It's for a pretty big part in a two-hour drama.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Oh...! That's a very happy thing to discuss! This is the first time I've been invited to appear on a two-hour drama. How interesting!

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado The story is condensed into such a short span of time... will it be more like a movie?

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa Maybe so. The serious content matter will leave a deep impression, and it has a wide target demographic.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado This seems to be a unique opportunity for more people to get to know the group and myself! I'm getting more and more interested!

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa I'm glad you think so. As a matter of fact, Momo-kun has been offered a role as well.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado What?! Momotasu and I will be acting together?! Tsubasa-san, you need to say such an important thing sooner!

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa Hehe, I'm sorry. I've already got a copy of the screenplay. Why don't you take a look at it?

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Yes, certainly!

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa Let's see... here's the script. The setting is an exclusive private school. Mikado-san, you'll be playing a new teacher who's just moved to start his first job at the school.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Hmm...

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa How does it sound? I think it's a role that can provide new challenges for you as an actor.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado ............

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa ... Mikado-san?

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado ... I'm terribly sorry. I regret to inform you that I must decline the offer.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa Ah... m-may I ask why?

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado To put it simply... I think this role will be too difficult for me.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado This must be what they mean by a so-called "lack of available actors."

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa But you won't even try... I don't understand...

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado No. I don't think this is an easy role that I could successfully challenge as if I had nothing to lose.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado I believe that would be disrespectful to the staff and other co-stars. So this time... I'm sorry.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa ... I understand. If you say that much, Mikado-san...

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Yes, thank you.

Conference room
Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa (After that, I received a favorable response from Momo-kun, but...)

Corridor
Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa (I never thought I'd see Mikado-san turn something like that down, since it's the sort of work he always does. After all, he's the sort of person who tackles a challenge without hesitation.)

Corridor
Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa At first he looked interested. I wonder what made him so uneasy...

Corridor
Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa I don't think it's a lack of available actors, but--

Onzai Momotaro casual story

Momotaro Talkbox

Onzai Momotaro ... Mika, why did you turn down the offer for the drama?

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Oh. News travels fast, doesn't it, Momotasu?

Corridor
Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa (Momo-kun and Mikado-san...!)

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Momotaro Talkbox

Onzai Momotaro Because I was offered a role after you were, Mika.

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Oh, that's right! You took the role, of course. Right, Momotasu?

Corridor

Momotaro Talkbox

Onzai Momotaro ... Yes.

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado That's good news! Momotasu as a school nurse... dressed in a resplendent white lab coat...! I have to record this in the highest quality!

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Momotaro Talkbox

Onzai Momotaro ... You don't have to do that. You can see it in person every day if you come to the set.

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Oh, that's a delightful invitation! Certainly, it's difficult to sacrifice seeing you dressed in that white lab coat face to face...

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado But if I record it, I could worship you in all your sublime glory for a long time... it's better if I don't see it in person.

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Momotaro Talkbox

Onzai Momotaro Mika.

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado What is it?

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Momotaro Talkbox

Onzai Momotaro Is this because you refused the role, Mika?

Corridor

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Ah--......

Corridor

Momotaro Talkbox

Onzai Momotaro A newly-graduated teacher rebelling against a veteran one...

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Momotaro Talkbox

Onzai Momotaro The argument between the two of them... When I read it in the script, I felt the tension.

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Yes, I agree. I thought it was an extremely realistic and excellent screenplay.

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado That's why I thought there'd be a better actor for it than I would be.

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Momotaro Talkbox

Onzai Momotaro I don't think so.

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado That's...

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Momotaro Talkbox

Onzai Momotaro When I read that argument, I thought the newly-graduated teacher was a role you could play for sure, Mika.

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Momotaro Talkbox

Onzai Momotaro This role definitely can't be played by anyone else. Mika, the passion you have inside you makes you perfect for the role.

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado ... Ha, haha... Momotasu, you vastly overestimate me.

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Because... I'm like him...

Corridor

Momotaro Talkbox

Onzai Momotaro ... Mika?

Corridor

Sekimura Mikado casual story Onzai Momotaro casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado ... At any rate, this conversation is over. Ah, I would never miss anything you do, Momotasu, so don't worry.

Corridor

Momotaro Talkbox

Onzai Momotaro ............

Corridor
Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa (During that conversation just now... It seemed like Momo-kun knew something.)

Corridor
Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa (Besides, it felt more like Mikado-san was trying to avoid something, rather than being unable to perform the role.)

Corridor
Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa (I would have liked to talk to him again before I have to send in his refusal--)

Corridor
Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa --Ha... In the end, I never did get the time to talk with Mikado-san yesterday.

Corridor 2
Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa I have to respond soon, but I hope I can get some time after today's meeting...

Sekimura Mikado "What gives you the right to be talking about education like that? Those boys aren't your property...!"

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Just as I thought, it's impossible... I can't do it.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa Th... that's not...!

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Tsubasa-san?

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa Ah... s-sorry. I meant to call out to you, but that...

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado ... No, that's fine. I'm the one who should apologize for not noticing you.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado I finished my last job early so I came straight here, but I had more time than I expected.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa Right... that was it, then.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Oh, if you wanted to use this room before our meeting...

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa No, it's fine for you to use it. However... Mikado-san.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Yes, what is it?

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa Just now... that was the script for this drama, wasn't it?

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado ... Yes. Momotasu asked me to read it again. I said I had already refused and there was no point in reading through it again.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa ... Is there really no point to it?

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Huh?

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa Truthfully, I haven't passed your refusal along yet. I'd hoped you'd change your mind.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa After all, you aren't the type of person who gives up on a difficult role without even attempting it, are you?

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa If there's a reason you're thinking something like, "I can't do it," could we help you resolve that?

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Tsubasa-san, I'm sorry. I appear to have worried you.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado But what I said yesterday were my true feelings. Nothing more, nothing less.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa ... Is that so.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa But if you really believe this offer was due to a lack of available actors, I think you've misjudged your own ability, Mikado-san.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado Hn--......

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa Mikado-san, just now your acting was absolutely heartbreaking.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa You're just sitting there and reading the dialogue, but I can actually see the scene in my mind...

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado ... That's because I have a lot in common with this character.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa Huh?

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado It's not due to my acting ability. Those are lines that speak to my experience, so they sound very natural coming from me.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado You could say it's due to me "fitting the role," but this role is...

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado It resonates deeply with who I am now. I'm not confident I could stay composed while I play the character.

Conference room

Sekimura Mikado casual story

Mikado Talkbox

Sekimura Mikado I'm sorry I couldn't meet your expectations. Please excuse me.

Conference room
Tsubasa Talkbox

Sumisora Tsubasa Mikado-san...!
