|—Okay, looks like everyone’s gathered. Well then, Shuji, let’s start early.|
|I’m busy after this, so let’s hurry up and finish this.|
|Hey, it’s rare for the president and Daikoku-san to be together, is this some kind of big news?|
|Eh, I’m kind of scared......! What is it, what is it!?|
|......Do you know about ”Yumeria”?|
|”Yumeria”...... is that popular cute character goods?|
|Yeah. The reason we gathered you here today is to tell you that you’ll have a big job with ”Yumeria” and to talk about it.|
|Amazing!! When I was a kid, I loved that character and had a lot of their goods~♪|
|I often wore their T-shirts! Hehe, how nostalgic......|
|Everyone knows about ”Yumeria”!|
......However, what job will we be doing with a national toy maker?
|”Yumeria” will be opening a new theme park this Spring just in time for Easter.|
So they chose BPRO as their first campaign characters.
|There’s already a lot of talks about the large advertisements they’ll do.|
|This is really a big job......!|
|Yeah. I was surprised when my brother suddenly brought up this conversation.|
|Haha, I had a long meetup with the president of ”Yumeria”. I thought it was a long time since we talked and then this conversation came up.|
They were the ones who asked since they’ve been paying attention to BPRO’s recent activities.
|Shuji-san, you’re amazing......!|
|I’m truly moved that the president of ”Yumeria” knows about us.|
|Also wouldn’t be campaign characters for a theme park be super interesting?|
I’ve seen the advertisements, but it seems like they’ll have lots of rides!
|”Yumeria” has a fancy image, so I wonder if they’ll have roller coasters too?|
|Yeah, seems like they’ll have thrill rides. It was in a magazine.|
|Wah~! I definitely want to ride them!|
|Hey, we’re going to be campaign characters, not visitors. Don’t forget this is a job.|
|Fu, but anyways, that’s what it is. I’ll be happy if you all can do your best to do a good job while enjoying things.|
Then...... Shuji and I have plans after this, so we’ll leave the rest to you, Sumisora-kun.
|Yes, thank you very much!|
|So so? What exactly is the job?|
|Of course, advertisements and a CM, but this time, there are plans for everyone to perform a mini live in the opening event.|
|I wonder if the park’s characters will dance with us in the mini live?|
|Wah, that’d be interesting!|
|Okay, okay, I want to wear a character costume! And then do a great dance.|
|That sounds interesting...... But are you fine if no one can see your face?|
|Hah! I don’t want that......!|
|But I think dancing with a character costume is a good idea.|
|That’s right. It’d also be nice if we matched colors with the character’s outfits.|
|But the characters there are kind of...... They’re all cute, right?|
To match with them, isn’t our image too different?
|Eh? Is that so?|
Then I think Gouchin can wear a pastel costume with lots of flowing lace and ribbons ♪
|Hah!? No way that would suit me!|
|Now, now, we were in the middle of explaining this?|
|Yes, I think they’ll gradually decide and organize the outfits and live while asking for everyone’s opinions.|
|Ehehe, I’m looking forward to it~♪|
|But before that, there’s one important job......|
|An important job? Other than the live?|
|Yes. Actually I was told to ask everyone about character designs for Easter......|
|Our characters for ”Yumeria”?|
|This is such an honor!!|
|This will be an Easter event, so the motif is ”rabbit”.|
|Oh, if it’s a ”rabbit”...... Then shouldn’t we make them be really cute!?|
|That’s right. I want add a high quality to them so they can stand up against popular characters!|
|Hey, is everyone free after this? Since we’re all here, how about continuing to talk about the designs like this?|
|Let’s do that. Tsubasa, can we still use this meeting room?|
|Yes, feel free to use it.|
|Thanks. Well then, let’s come up with ideas at once.|
|All that’s left is coloring it...... Alright, done. Did everyone finish drawing their rabbit design?|
|Yeah, yeah, Yuduki and I finished!|
|I’m pretty much done too.|
|Then let’s present them to each other.|
|Sure. Ready...... Go.|
|Fufu, the beautiful round Ryuji’s rabbit are really cute.|
But I have a feeling I’ve seen a rabbit wearing a hoodie somewhere......
|Uh...... I know it looks like ”Mimi Melodia”. But I couldn’t think of anything other than this.|
|Ah, Gouchin’s rabbit has a cross for their mouth, hmm I think I remember this one too......?|
|......It’s the same as fancy eyebrows over there. When I heard rabbit, I came up with this.|
|Goshi-kun, how are my and Yuduki’s rabbits?|
|......They kind of look really fluffy.|
|......Hm? This is...... similar to ”Mofumofu Usagi”......|
|Yeah, it’s a popular rabbit character that’s been in picture books and cartoons.|
You might have seen it somewhere and unknowingly used it as inspiration.
|”Rabbit” is a pretty popular motif in the first place.|
Isn’t it too difficult to do something completely original now?
|By the way Nomecchi, what did you draw earlier?|
|Ah, no, it’s......|
|”Chao Chao Meloppi”? This is a popular character at ”Yumeria”.|
I believe it was a cloud fairy...... Tatsu, you liked this character?
|It, it’s not like I like it......|
|A while ago, we went to a collab café together. He ended up liking it before we knew it!|
|It’s not like I like it, it just let an impression......|
|”Chao Chao Meloppi”, huh......|
It’d be nice if we could make characters that left a cute impact like that too.
Hmm, I can’t really think of anything.
It seems like they’ll become character goods, so it’d be disrespectful to the makers and visitors if we make something carelessly, so I want to proper make something with originality.
|It’s needed, but it’s a point that makes the hurdle even higher.|
|Hmm...... I guess design pros go through this when they’re making characters like this.|
|Ah...... I heard pro designers talking about this on a documentary.|
If I remember right, they said they watch the animal or people that the motif is based on when they’re making new characters.
Even for things you think you know well, just looking and researching them over again can help find a hint for a new idea or design.
|Ohh~ that’s kind of cool......! Let’s try copying that!|
|Yeah, it might be helpful to try it.|
|Yeah, nice idea!|
Tsubasa-san, sorry it’s so sudden, but could you find us a chance to interact with rabbits directly?
|I think I can! I’ll go ask Yashamaru-san and the park staff right away.|
|Thank you very much.|
|Hehe, I hope it goes well!|
|Everyone, good job on the shoot. It’s sudden, but about the appointment from earlier, I made it for this afternoon.|
|Really!? Wow Tsubasa-chan, you work fast!|
|Fufu, thank you. It’s sudden, so I think it might be difficult for everyone to go......|
|Well, it’s good if the ones who can go just go for now.|
|Alright! Then I’ll tell everyone in our group JOIN!|
|There really isn’t that many people during the daytime on a weekday. We’ll be able to interact with the rabbits well like this.|
|That’s right. Umm, let’s go in...... Ah, the animal breeder seems to be there.|
|Breeder||Hello, please take care of us today. If there’s anything I can help with, please don’t hesitate to ask.|
|Thank you very much. Please take care of us too.|
|Breeder||Yes. Then, please come this way.|
|Wah......! There’s so many cute rabbits~!!|
|Yeah, their roundness and fluffiness makes them so charming......!|
|They’d probably feel nice to touch.|
|Yeah, yeah! Rabb~its, let me hug you!|
Wait, ehh!? Why are you running? Wait for me~!
|......He’s completely chasing after them.|
|It seems like chasing after them has the opposite effect. Let’s wait for the rabbits to calm down—|
|Uoh!? What is this.|
|Wait, why are they gathering around me......|
|Fu, seems like they all want Goshi to protect them. The rabbits are cuddling with Goshi’s leg.|
|Hey, hey, don’t climb up......!|
|Muh, no fair, Gouchin~......|
Rabbits, come over here? Let’s play together!
......Hey, ahh! Why are even more going towards Gouchin!?
|Hey, hey, stop it already...... I’m seriously going to be smothered in rabbits.|
|It’s like when Ashu calls out to them, they go towards Kaneshiro......|
......I see. It’s probably a trait of them to dislike being bothered.
|I see. That’s why they’re gathered around Goshi.|
|Breeder||Yes, that’s right. They have a cute and friendly image, but rabbits are timid, so they’re on guard when they’re bothered.|
|So that’s why......!|
Uh...... I’m sorry, everyone.
|Is there anything else we should be careful about? Like places where rabbits don’t like to be touched......|
|Breeder||They really hate when their ears are grabbed. They also dislike their neck and chins, stomachs, feet and legs, and tail.|
|In other words, they don’t like to be touched much.|
|Breeder||Haha, that’s right. However, when they come up to you by themselves, they’re happy when you pet their cheeks.|
|Seems like that kid wants to be pet by Mikado.|
|Ohh...... Then, if you’ll let me......|
How is this? Does it feel good?
......Fufu, I see. So they like to be pet on their heads like this.
|They like to be pet on their backs and around their heads? The eyes it’s making looks like it feels good.|
|That’s right, seems like they like their heads and forehead.|
|How cute, I’ll try too.|
......Rabbits, come here?
|Ahaha, it’s ticklish if you lick me that much.|
|Fufu, Yuta-kun, I’m glad you got along well with the rabbits.|
|Yeah! Their fluffiness is so healing~|
|Huh...... All of the rabbits raised their ears all of a sudden.|
|Eh? ......Wah, you’re right.|
|Fufu, seems like they’re relaxed, it’s really cute. I’ll take a picture and show it to Ryuji later.|
|Raising their ears...... That’s it, Prince!|
For the character designs, how about a type of rabbit that can flap their ears?
|I agree! It’s a little different, but I feel like it’d definitely be cute!|
|Then let’s incorporate that into the design......|
|......? What’s up, Gouchin.|
|Excuse me, those 3 rabbits have been staying over there for a while, right?|
|Breeder||Yes, rabbits naturally have a characteristic of gathering together, but within these rabbits, those 3 particularly get along well.|
|Rabbits who get along well...... would probably be cute as characters.|
|That’s good! A trio who gets along well!|
|Yeah, it’d probably be interesting if their personalities and expressions were different.|
|I’d want a plain tsundere character in that! He could be bad mouthed, but a good person inside.|
Momotasu, what kind of person do you think is good?
|Let’s see...... How about a character who’s always cheerful?|
|I see, a high tension character to follow up on the tsundere character.|
Amazing Momotasu, you understand me well!
And also if there was an egoistic narcissist character too, then the 3 rabbits would be even more charmful...... Wait, huh?
A bad mouthed person, a high tension person, and a narcissist person......
|It’s completely like THRIVE.|
|That’s not right. I’m not a tsundere or a narcissist.|
|Well, a true tsundere wouldn’t think they’re actually a tsundere.|
|Anyways, let’s go with that outline for the designs!|
|Yeah, let’s try it!|
|......How’s this. I tried to have the 3 rabbits cuddled up together.|
|This is cute, Momotasu! It’s flowing with originality!|
|Yeah, if it’s like this, then wouldn’t everyone else be interested in it too?|
|I’ll send it on JOIN!|
|Hey, what’s wrong, Gouchin? You’re staring at it...... Is there something you’re worried about?|
|Something I’m worried about...... Isn’t there kind of something lacking from this design?|
|Yeah...... Sorry, Sumisora. Can you pull out the current character references now?|
|Yes, here they are.|
......Ahh, I see.
Popular characters are all wearing like a ribbon or T-shirt.
|Now that you mention it...... It’s true that that characters have a defining item on them.|
|It’s probably a necessary point to have something distinguishable for characters with the same motif.|
|Right. But what item should we add......|
|A ribbon or T-shirt would be completely off. I feel like a hat would be wrong too......|
Haah......! I can’t do this, I can’t think of anything~!
|We used our heads a lot today already.|
|That’s right, let’s try going home and thinking about it. It’s already late too.|
|Right. Then let’s let each other know on JOIN if we think of anything—|
|Yuta, you’ve been groaning this whole time. Rehearsal is about to start, you know?|
|Eh, it’s already this time?|
Uhh...... I’ve been thinking this whole time about what kind of item to add to our rabbits, but I can’t think of anything~......
I wonder if I can find a hint somewhere?
Is there something that would suit rabbits? Like an item that rabbits are interested in.
|Hmm, there’s nothing like that really......|
But I see, that’s right! That’s probably a good hint!
|I’ll go look at the rabbits one more time! There might be something new to discover.|
Tsubasa-chan, when this shoot is over, can we go to that zoo again?
|I think that’s probably fine. I’ll try contacting them now.|
|Thanks! Gouchin and KenKen, let’s go together!|
|Eh, me too?|
|KenKen didn’t go last time, right? A new idea might could come up.|
Gouchin is good with this too, right?
|Can’t be helped. Not like we can do things carelessly.|
|......Ahh, I see. Let’s try going then.|
|So it’s not a ribbon or T-shirt...... Wouldn’t a carrot be fine?|
|Hey, we didn’t come all the way here just for that.|
|Hmm, what about a rabbit wearing a rabbit ear hat......?|
|Settle down, you’re thinking too much like yourself.|
|That’s why we’re in this situation, Goshi. Wouldn’t it be good to throw out some fresh ideas?|
|Shut up, I’ve been thinking things over this whole time......|
|......Thinking things over?|
|......Wait a minute. We forgot something really important.|
|Something important? ......What is it.|
|The theme. The characters are ”Easter” characters.|
I completely forgot about it.
|Ah...... That’s right! I had so many thoughts about rabbits in my head.|
|What you think about when you think of Easter is...... Eggs?|
|Yeah, Easter eggs are standard.|
|Then how about we have the rabbits holding eggs?|
I think it’d definitely be cute if they were squeezing onto huge eggs!
|When you open the shell, the inside would be......|
The three rabbits. It might be good if we make them match their personalities.
Tsubasa, can you make a memo about this idea?
I’ll make a summary of your ideas, so everyone, don’t mind and please keep on talking.
|That’s great. Thanks.|
|Tunk! Towels and keyholders and stuffed animals, all of them are incredible quality!|
|There’s a stuffed animal for each rabbit. It’ll be fun to choose which ones you like if it’s like this.|
|All of them are cute...... A lot of affection was put in to make such difficult things.|
|That’s right. We received a lot of samples, so I’ll pass them out to everyone later.|
|Thanks! Ehehe, I hope everyone who’s coming here like them too.|
|Staff||Everyone in BPRO, it’s almost time, so please get ready.|
|We’ll have the opening ceremony now and then after that is the mini live.|
|Alright. Let’s do our best to make our guests today enjoy things from the bottom of their hearts!|
|Everyone, thanks for coming today~!|
Now then, now then, it’s finally......
What everyone is waiting for, the reveal of the Easter limited characters!
|These are characters designed with all of our affections.|
We’ll be happy if you like them.
Well then...... Please pay attention to the stage screen.
|Girl 1||Wah, they’re rabbits~!|
|Girl 2||Hey, look at that one, mama! They’re really cute!|
|Ehehe~ Right, right!|
|......It’s a relief to hear this good reaction.|
|Yeah! We were really worried about them until we came up with these characters......|
We went to go see actual rabbits and wen tto zoos.
|Yeah, yeah! We played with a lot of rabbits...... And because of that, we created these ones ♪|
|(The talk is continuing well...... Now when the timing is right, the secret guest will—)|
|......Hm? This is sudden, but it seems a secret guest has arrived.|
|Ehh, I didn’t hear anything about a guest?|
|If you did, then it wouldn’t be a secret.|
|Ah, that’s right!|
|Well then...... Let’s have the secret guest on stage.|
|Ah, the rabbits from the zoo! They came here~!|
Hey, do you remember me? We played together—
|(Ehh!? The rabbits are out of the fence—)|
|Uoah!? What is this, you guys......!|
|Fu...... They’re attached to you as usual.|
Ahh...... Don’t jump! Here, go inside the fence......
|Getting to rub their fluffiness...... How nice......|
I was supposed to get close to the rabbits too, it’s not fair that it’s only Gouchin~!
|That’s now what you should be saying! Help out already.|
|Oookay...... Here, come here, rabbits?|
Ahh, they’re all going towards Gouchin!
Ugh...... Does Gouchin release pheromones that rabbits like?
|I can’t deny that possibility.|
|Hey, Momochin ended up holding them too!|
|Yeah, this one came over.|
Agh, I want to rub the rabbits too~!
