|Official Introduction from Website|
Good morning~ everyone...... I’m Kanata-chan~.
|Official Introduction from Love Live! School idol festival Website|
Why am I in a classroom...? Even though I was in the infirmary...
Why are we shooting... my introduction video... in a classroom? Wouldn’t it normally be in the infirmary?
...Because, it has beds... and filming me while I sleep... would be the best...
What, that’s no good? I’m not allowed to... sleep?
How tough... aren’t you being a little too stubborn...?
This place doesn’t have beds, or a soft Haruka-chan... if we start like this... I won’t have any motivation...
So... I’ll caress you. [TL note: what I translated as “caress” could also be something like “pat”.]
A reward... for taking me from the infirmary to the classroom. Come on, let me caress you.
“Time to get serious”? I’m already at maximum seriousness here—.
Imagine...? That on the other side of the camera... is Haruka-chan...!? Expecting... the heroic Kanata-chan? Ooh, this onee-chan can’t help but be encouraged by that—.
Sigh... that’s it. My enthusiasm has a time limit. I really did well, trying my best to the end.
What...? I have to persevere for a little longer? You’re merciless—.
Ahh, I guess it can’t be helped. Without me... you’re hopeless... Well, onee-chan will have to try her best—.
Probably... definitely... maybe... well, uh, ready yourself...?
Yawn... ugh, could we just start after I sleep for five more minutes~?
|Question & Answer Corner|
What has been good about becoming a school idol?
Good things... I was able to start chatting with Haruka-chan about school idols~...
Good school idol activities... depend on getting good sleep...
I felt that Emma-chan has the same aura as me...
Emma-chan is a big sister too~, so we chat a lot about the hardships of being a big sister... Being a big sister is tough.
Shizuku-chan was... shining brilliantly~...
I’m very diligent~, and I’m busy every day...
It’s surprising to be asked this~.
Aside from sleeping... expressing my love for Haruka-chan... yes, I suppose...
I’m just the way I am, so I don’t really like or dislike anything about myself...
...I want to stand on stage with everyone~.
I’m happy when I’m dreaming too... so it really is a win-win situation, right~?
I’m sad that they can’t understand...
And when I don’t have my pillow... I can’t think straight...
If I wrote it down, it’d take more than 6000 sheets... so is it really fine to talk about it...?
This is Kanata-chan, everyone~.
