Red-Hot Hero Hymn[edit]

Teru, the pop star and lead member of DRAMATIC STARS introduces himself to (Captain) and the party. He explains how much he admires the heroes, but, being from a different world, his speeches only confuse the crew. However, during his explanation, Lyria and Vyrn remark that he reminds them of (Captain). Teru is overjoyed, and hopes that he can lead DRAMATIC STARS to stardom.



Not much time had passed since the members of DRAMATIC STARS were transported to the boundless Sky World…
Teru Tendo believed that he was still filming a commercial, and continued to have confusing conversations with (Captain)'s crew.
Teru: Woah! Is this the green room?
Teru: This is so elaborate! I've never seen a dressing room themed to look just like the set before!
Lyria: Erm… This isn't a "dressing room"… You say such strange things!
Vyrn: Yeah, man. You're kinda odd, y'know?
Teru: Oh, my bad. Forgot to introduce myself!
Teru: Name's Teru Tendo, 28 years old, former lawyer turned pop star! Playing the hero, hopefully not demolishing Tokyo!
Lyria and Vyrn: …Huh?
Teru: Tough crowd… Not even a giggle.
Teru: Oh, right. You guys didn't know what I meant by hero! Y'know, like a superhero! Or a giant movie monster!
Vyrn: No, we know what a hero is…
Teru: Oh! So it's just the bit about the monster movies that didn't really work for you?
Teru: Anyway, in a nutshell, me and the other members of DRAMATIC STARS just wanna make people happy!
Vyrn: Hmm… There he goes again with his random words in a sentence.
Lyria: Well… I understand what he's saying about wanting to make people happy…
Teru: Ah, you get it! I've always wanted to be a hero, y'know?
Teru: One of the ones with great power and great responsibility, who saves everyone he meets!
Teru: I wanna be that kind of guy. Heroic, dashing, and passionate.
Vyrn: Ohhh! Even I get it now!
Lyria: Yeah, Vyrn. He's just like (Captain)!
  1. Erm, is he really that much like me?
  2. Yeah, he's just like me!

Choose: Erm, is he really that much like me?
Lyria: Heehee, the spitting image of you!
Vyrn: Hehehe, even though you don't actually look alike.
Teru: (…but now that you mention it, (Captain) is just like the protagonist of a video game I've played…)

Choose: Yeah, he's just like me!
Teru: Oh, really?
Vyrn: Hehehe, well (Captain), you do save everyone you meet.
Teru: Right? We're kinda similar!
Teru: (…but now that you mention it, (Captain) is just like the protagonist of a video game I've played…)
Continue 1
Teru: Well, I've still got a long way to go. I'm not quite the heroic leader I want to be yet, but I will be!
Teru: I want to lead the DRAMATIC STARS to fame! Just like Captain (Captain) leads the Grandcypher across Sky World!
Teru: Captain… Do you think I'll be able to?
  1. Of course, you can do it!
  2. No, I doubt you can do that.

Choose: Of course, you can do it!
Teru: Ha, thanks Captain! I won't disappoint you!
Vyrn: Keep going, Teru! I'm rooting for you!
Lyria: Teru, you seem like a natural leader. I'm rooting for you too!

Choose: No, I doubt you can do that.
Teru: Oh no… I tried so hard… Why not?
Lyria: I don't think (Captain) meant it that way, Teru!
Teru: Huh? What do you mean?
Lyria: Erm… What (Captain) was trying to say was…
Lyria: …That you can become so much more than the sum of your parts. You need to aim higher!
Teru: Is that right, Captain?
(Captain) nodded silently.
Seeing this, Teru laughed embarrassedly.
Continue 2
Teru: Heh, I guess having support is the most important thing for a pop star.
Teru: It's weird. Hearing you guys saying such nice things has really motivated me!
Teru: I'll do my best, for my sake, and for the sake of the crew!
Teru: Woah! I just got super into the role there!
Teru: I've got goose bumps! Wow, is this what they call "method acting"?
Teru: You're such a great actor, (Captain), I can only imagine you as the captain of an actual airship! Fantastic!
Vyrn: Sigh… Just when I thought he was gonna be speaking normally…
It seemed that Teru Tendo was always going to be saying things that (Captain) and the crew didn't understand…

Singing for Sun![edit]

Lyria and Vyrn are feeling despondent about the endless rain. Seeing their glum faces, Teru decides to make a Sunshine doll. But the tissue paper and rubber bands he needs to make the doll don't exist in the Sky World. Lyria is sure that Sierokarte will have something that they can use, and suggests they visit the Knickknack Shack in the next town.



In the middle of a shoot, Teru and the others had to suspend filming because of ongoing rain…
Or at least, that's what the members of the pop group DRAMATIC STARS had thought.
However, this was not a film set. The pop stars realized that somehow, they had crossed into the boundless Sky World.
And with that came the realization that they could no longer return to their world. Teru's feelings about this were complicated.
Lyria: (Sigh…) Oh Vyrn, another day of rain. I'm sooo bored.
Vyrn: Yeah… All this rain is making me depressed.
While he watched the smiles completely vanish from Lyria and Vyrn's faces, Teru was thinking?
Teru: (What can I do when things are as glum as this…)
Teru: (Wait, everyone being depressed like this is an opportunity for me to liven things up!)
As Teru fretted about what to do, an idea began to form in his mind…
Teru: Hey everyone, cheer up! Whenever it's raining like this, I find there's usually something I can do.
Lyria: Huh? Something to do in the rain?
Teru: Shall I tell you? It's a pop idol's mission to put a smile on everyone's face.
Vyrn: No, not even you can do anything about the rain.
Teru: Never mind about that. Look, bring me a tissue.
Lyria: Huh? What's a "tissue"?
Teru: (Of course. They don't have that kind of thing here. How am I going to make my Sunshine doll?)
Teru: Wait, does that mean you don't have marker pens or rubber bands either?
Vyrn: Yeah… I've not even heard of those.
Teru: OK, change of plan…
Well, I guess I could just use some cloth and a piece of string…
Lyria: Hey, why don't we go ask Siero… I'm sure she'll have some in stock at the Knickknack Shack.
Vyrn: Good idea! I heard that Sierokarte is staying at a tavern in the next town just now.
Teru: (Sierokarte's Knickknack Shack… well, it seems they might have what I need. I guess we'll have to drop by.)
Teru: Well, that's settled, let's get moving. Don't worry about money, I'm paying! Everyone, follow me!
Teru hurriedly finished his preparations and was just about to set off with Lyria and Vyrn when?
Teru: Are you sure about this? Is this really the way?
Vyrn: Relax Teru! Don't you trust my directions?
Monster: GRAAAAAARGH!
Teru: Yup, this is a relaxing trip all right!
There's nothing else for it, attack!

Singing for Sun!: Scene 2[edit]

Teru and the others arrive at Sierokarte's. Teru quickly picks out the things he needs to make the Sunshine doll, but when he tries to pay, he realizes that his cash is not legal tender in this world. In a bind, Teru tries to charm Sierokarte with his usual deluge of bad puns, but Siero parries with bad puns of her own. Undaunted, Teru's shoots back, and before they realize it, the two are locked in a bad pun battle.



Teru and the others went to the next town to visit Sierokarte…
Sierokarte: Roll up roll up! You name it, we've got it, right here at the Knickknack Shack.
Teru: You must be Sierokarte! To meet a Harvin in the flesh, it really gives me that "Fantasy" feeling, you know?
Sierokarte: Ooookay…
And what can I help you with today?
Teru: Oh right, of course.
First of all, that cloth and then… this ball of yarn, and that pen as well please.
Sierokarte: Right. Altogether that comes to 500 rupies.
Teru: Ok, 500, right?
Sierokarte: Thank you once again for your kind custom.
But as Sierokarte took the money, the smile on her face turned to a grimace.
Sierokarte: Huh?
Wait a minute please kind sir!
Teru: Yeah, what's up?
Sierokarte: Errrr… which kingdom's money is this?
Teru: Which kingdom?
Sierokarte: Look, it has these strange letters engraved in it, it's not a currency I've ever seen before.
Teru: Yikes, now I'm done for! You mean I can't use my money in this world?
Teru: Of course, I need those currencies like they have in that video game. I can't use my money here! That sucks so bad…
Sierokarte: Pardon? Money sucks so bad?
Teru: I'm in a pinch… time to turn on the charm and break out some bad puns?
Sierokarte: Hehehehe… Are you proposing a battle of wits, sir?
Teru: So you also appreciate the art of word-play! My jokes are wasted on Kaoru and Tsubasa. Have I met my match?
Sierokarte: Let's see…
You asked for a ball of yarn, but methinks you want to spin me a yarn!
Teru: Oh, that's how you want to play…
See this delicious loaf of bread? I doubt you have the dough to pay for it!
Sierokarte: Ouch! Get to the point, are you buying this sword or not?
Teru: It's not over yet!
Observe this cloak. Would it not look good on my mantel?
Sierokarte: Mmmm… That mantle comes with this metal hatchet. But at this price, it's a steal!
Teru: …It seems you have some axe to grind with me.
Sierokarte: Enough already, I give in! Have mercy on me!
Teru: Haha, you're really something, Siero. I'll remember our pun contest for some time to come.
Sierokarte: It was a great contest. It's been a while since I laughed this hard.
Sierokarte: Well, if you will accept them, I'd like to give you those things you were asking for earlier on the house.
And on saying that, Sierokarte handed all the things on Teru's shopping list over to Lyria for free.
Lyria: Are you sure about this? I feel bad.
Teru: It's at Sierokarte's discretion isn't it? Refusing her generosity would be uncouth. We should accept her gifts.
As Teru was leaving, he surreptitiously whispered in Siero's ear, so that the others wouldn't hear…
Teru: (Thank you! Cutting the price specially for me like that.)
Sierokarte: Well, your companions are such loyal customers.
Gathering up the goods in his arms, Teru dashed straight through the rain-lashed forest and back to their room at the inn.
There, Teru patiently and politely showed Lyria and Vyrn how to make a Sunshine doll.
Teru: And… we're done!
Lyria: So… what is this exactly?
Teru: It’s a Sunshine doll! In my country these guys stop it raining for us!
Vyrn: Huh… and do they really stop the rain?
Teru: Well, why don't we test it out? Let's hang it from the eaves of the inn.
Teru, Lyria, and Vyrn hung up the Sunshine doll outside their window.
As Lyria and Vyrn watched the doll swing to and fro from the eaves, broad smiles spread across their faces.
Just then however?
Monster: GROOOOOOARGH!
Teru: Wh- what are those things! Where did they come from, so suddenly?
Vyrn: What the… Siero has dropped us in it this time. Look again at this yarn, it's actually a strand of monster hair!
Teru: So that's what called the monsters here. But don't sweat this one, I'll make short work of these guys!

Singing for Sun!: Scene 3[edit]

Using the materials genrously granted to them by Sierokarte, Teru finishes making the Sunshine doll. Sadly, however, the doll has no effect, and the following morning it is still raining. Teru, feeling despondent, turns to Lyria and Vyrn. On seeing their smiling faces, Teru understands that it is their smiles that are the true sunshine.



The following morning, the rain still had not stopped. In the end the Sunshine doll had not made any difference.
Teru: Sorry 'bout this guys… it didn't do what I promised it would.
Lyria: Hey, don't worry about that.
Teru: What do you…
Teru's words broke off suddenly.
Looking at Lyria and Vyrn, and the smiles on their faces, Teru suddenly understood.
Teru: Of course, that's it… the sky may not have brightened up, but your faces have.
Teru: That's the real sunshine amulet. It's me, I'm the real sunshine doll!
Teru: The smiles on your faces are the sunshine I brought!
Vyrn: Hahaha! I don't understand what you're saying, but you're a funny guy, Teru.
Lyria: Yup, you're a funny one!
Thus, as was so often the case, Teru Tendo was surrounded by a chorus of laughter.
Wherever there is anyone looking glum, he will do all he can to turn that frown upside down.
Because that's how Teru Tendo rolls.
