Chapter 16-2 (1)
Akira: Anyways...
Producer: Hm?
Akira: I didn't think you would be able to understand that much just by hearing me sing.
Producer: So you really...
Chapter 16-2 (2)
Akira: That's right. I'm not singing seriously...or rather, I don't know how to sing with my heart....
Akira: It was like that when I was a model, too. I had the talent to use my good looks and become famous.
Akira: However, the other models said that I was like a "doll."
Akira: They said that I didn't have any emotion, and that my smile always looked the same, like it was a mask...
Producer: No way...That's terrible! They probably said that out of prejudi--
Chapter 16-2 (3)
Akira: It's probably so. But I think that of myself, too.
Akira: It's true that when I was a model, I did it with half-assed feelings. I had the talent, but I didn't know how to express myself...
Akira: After I graduated high school, I started working as a professional model, but everyone was older than me.
Akira: I just simply smiled, but I didn't think it would turn out like this.
Akira: I want to change myself. I don't want to be called a "doll" anymore...
Akira: I came here to change these things.
Chapter 16-2 (4)
Akira: When I met Seiya and Kanata, I thought that they were so radiant. I wanted to be like them.
Akira: Seiya and Kanata say that they want to be like me, but it's the opposite; I'm the one that wants to be like them.
Akira: Ever since I met those two, I wanted to aim higher with them.
Akira: Producer...I admit what you pointed out.
Chapter 16-2 (5)
Akira: That's why, I beg of you. Won't you help me become appropriate for Seiya and Kanata?
Producer: ...You don't need to ask me such an obvious thing.
Producer: And also...I don't think I'm the only one that can help you, you know?
Akira: Eh?
Chapter 16-2 (6)
Seiya: That's not fair, Akira!
Kanata: Akira-kun, I'm sorry. I ended up overhearing with Seiya and Rabirabi...
Akira: Wha-!? Since when...!
Producer: It's okay. It seems they started listening from when you said "I don't know how to sing with my heart."
Producer: (So they didn't see that other side of him...)
Akira: I see...Then, I'm glad. I don't want to show them that ugly side of me...
Seiya: What are you talking about?
Akira: No, it's nothing.
Kanata: It's not nothing! Akira-kun!
Chapter 16-2 (7)
Akira: Kanata....?
Kanata: I was anxious in the business world too, when I first met you two.
Kanata: But, thanks to meeting with you two, now I feel that we can aim higher together.
Kanata: That's why, from now on, you have to share with us both sad and happy things!
Chapter 16-2 (8)
Kanata: If we're together, we can overcome any wall with a hop!
Akira: !
Seiya: Kanata is right, Akira.
Akira: Seiya?
Seiya: First of all, you have to share your troubles with us, your friends! Well, I can understand that the producer is more reliable than us.
Seiya: You say that we are radiant, but we will shine even more thanks to you!
Akira: What do you mean by that?
Seiya: It's in our names!
Chapter 16-2 (9)
Seiya: My name (星夜) and yours (晃) both have the radical for "sun" (日) [1]
Seiya: That's pretty enough, but there's even more!
Seiya: With me and you together, the light(光) will be born!(生)

And with Kanata(奏), we will play a lot of melodies![2]

Seiya: See! Even our names are the best!
Akira: Seiya...People like you are...
Akira: Pff....h...haha!
Chapter 16-2 (10)
Seiya: Wh-why are you laughing like that?
Kanata: You're incredible, Seiya...
Producer: Yes. People don't usually think like that. But it's really great!
Producer: Because you three are together, you can certainly aim higher!
Seiya: Yeah! Since you think of us like that, we will one day reach the top!
Seiya: And we also deepened our friendship, Akira!
Seiya: A hug to seal our friendship! This time, just accept it honestly!
Akira: Well, this time it can't be helped...
Chapter 16-2 (11)
Kanata: Me too! *hugs*
Akira: You two...Thank you!
Akira: .......
Producer: (Hm? He's looking over here...He's moving his lips to say something---)
Thank you.
Producer: (! Ahaha! I'm glad for you!)
Chapter 16-2 (12)
Kokoro: What's up with them...I lost my worry. In the end they solved it by themselves.
Kokoro: Friends, huh...That's nice...
Kokoro: Huh! What the hell am I saying...! I-I just got influenced by them for a moment!
Kokoro: Hmph!...You guys better give it your best!


  1. A radical is a part that composes a kanji. In this case you can see that both the 星 from Seiya and 晃 from Akira have that radical in the upper part
  2. Here Seiya uses two other radicals. The first 光 (That means "light") is from Akira's name while the radical 生(that when put as a verb 生まれる means "to be born") is from Seiya's name. While the kanji for Kanata's name (奏) when made as a verb means "to play an instrument" (or a melody) Pretty artistic don't you think?
