Episode 1

Ren Jinguji: Hey, Cesshi! Great work during the Shopping Showdown at the mall.

Ren Jinguji: They'll be going over the footage for a while. We have some break time until the second round, so... Hey, what's that you're writing?

Cecil Aijima: I'm doing a review of the last round. I'd very much like to win the next.

Ren Jinguji: Ever the serious scholar, Cesshi. Just so you know, I have every intention of winning the next round.

Cecil Aijima: That makes two of us, then! But I must say, you have a real eye for shopping. How did you get so good?

Ren Jinguji: I think it's the kind of thing that you learn by doing. Why don't we go do a bit of shopping now?

Ren Jinguji: Thanks to the Shopping Showdown, the entire mall is our private paradise. Might as well make the most of it, eh?

Ren Jinguji: I got the all-clear from the staff. Let's take a look at the travel goods! Filming for our next commercial is gonna need an overnight trip.

Cecil Aijima: That's a good idea. Let's do it!

Episode 2

Cecil Aijima: Ren, check out this dreamy bag! It's even lined with pockets on the inside. That could be handy!

Ren Jinguji: Good find, Cesshi. What do you think of this?

Cecil Aijima: Er... What is it? It's flat, has an odd shape... What on earth do you use it for?

Ren Jinguji: It's a portable neck pillow. You inflate it and stick it around your neck so you can relax when you're in transit.

Cecil Aijima: Come to think of it, I saw someone use that on one of our bus trips. I had no clue they were this small when deflated.

Cecil Aijima: And what's this stick thing? Whoa, it extends!

Ren Jinguji: You stick your smartphone on the end to get a better shooting angle for selfies.

Cecil Aijima: Amazing! This place is just packed with surprises! I'm getting excited just looking around!

Ren Jinguji: You really don't come to these kinds of shops often, huh, Cesshi? But hey, if you're happy, so am I.

Cecil Aijima: You bet! I had no idea there were so many travel goods. I can't wait for that commercial shoot! I'll make sure I'm totally ready for the trip.

Episode 3

Cecil Aijima: This commercial is about a broken-hearted young man embarking on a journey. Say, Ren, for what other reasons might someone take a trip?

Ren Jinguji: Oh, there are lots. Some people go to refresh. Others want to get a taste of the local cuisine, or check out the killer views.

Ren Jinguji: As for the boy in the commercial? He's looking to heal his broken heart. You know, get back on track.

Cecil Aijima: Heal and get back on track... I see what you mean. The boy does start to brighten up after a chance encounter on the road.

Ren Jinguji: That's the beauty of the open road! You never know what incredible people you'll meet along the way.

Ren Jinguji: Jeez, look at the time... Our break's almost over. For now, let's appreciate what we find on the journey of this shoot.

Cecil Aijima: Well said! We're bound to find something fabulous on the next Shopping Showdown!

Episode 4

Otoya Ittoki: Hey, Cecil, Ren! What's that commercial you're in gonna be about?

Ren Jinguji: It's an ad for a travel agency. A boy with a broken heart embarks on a trip. Along the way, he meets a mysterious man who offers to send him back to the past.

Ren Jinguji: If you're wondering who's who, Cecil's the boy, and I'm the mystery man.

Tokiya Ichinose: Heartbreak, travel, and a strange man... Judging from that, I'm surprised you weren't cast the other way around.

Cecil Aijima: I was surprised too. But it's really fun to play against type for a change!

Ren Jinguji: It broadens your horizons as an actor for sure. I, for one, welcome the role of mystery man! It'll be fun to shoot on location, too.

Syo Kurusu: Where are they gonna do the shoot?

Cecil Aijima: It's a beautiful place with lots of fall color. We'll be hiking up a mountain and spending the night at a lodge there.

Natsuki Shinomiya: That sounds lovely! Bring back some nice souvenirs, 'kay?

Masato Hijirikawa: It's easy to lose your footing on those mountain paths. Not to mention the cold weather. You two had better take care of yourselves.

Episode 5

Tokiya Ichinose: This commercial of yours will be a big chance for ST☆RISH as a whole.

Cecil Aijima: What kind of chance?

Syo Kurusu: Oh! I know, I know! When you're in a TV show, people only watch it if they're already interested. But commercials get loads of exposure anyway.

Syo Kurusu: Meaning tons of people who don't know us will see it.

Masato Hijirikawa: It's an opportunity for us to extend our reach to potential new fans.

Cecil Aijima: In other words, the very fate of ST☆RISH itself rests on this commercial. Talk about responsibility...

Natsuki Shinomiya: Heheh! Don't stress yourself out. I know you two will do fine. We believe in you!

Otoya Ittoki: You can say that again! Just try to have fun, like always! And if more people get to know about ST☆RISH, that's just icing on the cake!

Ren Jinguji: But no matter how you slice it, we're representing ST☆RISH, so we'd better deliver. You with me, Cesshi?

Cecil Aijima: Yes! I'm really, really motivated now, guys! You can count on us!

Episode 6

Cecil Aijima: Fantastic! See that, Ren? The entire place is a sea of red leaves! What's the expression you used for that? "Killer hue," was it?

Ren Jinguji: Well, that's one way of putting it. But "killer view" is the one you want. On that note, how about a photo? You, me, and the perfect autumn backdrop.

Cecil Aijima: Sounds great! Let's send it to guys so they can enjoy the scenery too!

Cecil Aijima: I'll go ask one of the production staff to take the photo.

Ren Jinguji: Hold up, Cesshi. I got this. You just line up here, next to me.

Cecil Aijima: Thanks, Ren. You're a pro at everything! The photo turned out great.

Ren Jinguji: Then just hit "Send" and...done! Okay, let's hit that mountain trail! While savoring every step, of course.

Cecil Aijima: You got it! We are in the heart of nature, after all. It certainly fills you with the spirit of travel.

Episode 7

Cecil Aijima: Do you feel that? It's like walking on a fluffy red rug.

Ren Jinguji: I do indeed. The leaves seem to go on forever. I could stare at them for hours.

Cecil Aijima: I find Japan's four-season climate highly intriguing. With each turn of the season comes a new set of sights.

Cecil Aijima: Fall in particular. It's as if an enchantment was cast upon the forest, turning leaves to shades of red and yellow.

Ren Jinguji: Magic, eh? I guess I never thought of it that way. But the analogy suits you to a tee.

Cecil Aijima: I also hear the Japanese associate fall with specific activities. Do you know of any, Ren?

Ren Jinguji: I sure do. Let's see... There's reading, eating, even sports. Oh, and hitting the road is a big one.

Cecil Aijima: Hitting the road with what?

Ren Jinguji: You know, taking trips. With the post-summer drop in temperature, it's easier to spend time outside and, for instance, enjoy a great view like this.

Cecil Aijima: I'll say! I'll try "hitting the road" this fall too.

Episode 8

Ren Jinguji: Greetings, stranger. Did you come to this long-forgotten tourist site by yourself?

Cecil Aijima: Yes. And you?

Cecil Aijima: I'm sorry, Ren. Can we try that again?

Ren Jinguji: No need to apologize. But what gives? Something bothering you?

Cecil Aijima: I'm having trouble expressing myself in this scene. I'm trying my best to channel my emotions, but it's just not showing on my face.

Ren Jinguji: I see. That certainly is a hurdle. But maybe trying too hard is your problem. Overacting will actually hurt your performance, you know?

Cecil Aijima: Let's try it one more time, from the top. And can you pay attention to my expressions?

Ren Jinguji: Sure thing. Why don't you do the same? That way we can provide honest feedback about each other.

Episode 9

Ren Jinguji: Cesshi, say someone offered to take you back to the past using magic, for real. Would you say yes?

Cecil Aijima: Go back to the past... No, I'd have to decline.

Ren Jinguji: Wow, that answer came out pretty fast!

Cecil Aijima: If I went back to the past, there's no guarantee I could make it to this very point in the present. That would be sadder than I could bear.

Cecil Aijima: I treasure the present above all else, because I'm sharing it with the members of ST☆RISH. And the future we create together is bound to be even more special.

Ren Jinguji: I see. I'm sure that's what the boy in the commercial would have been thinking, too.

Cecil Aijima: I'd like to think so. And through a twist of fate on his journey, I'm sure he found the answer he was seeking.

Cecil Aijima: A chance encounter that heals the heart, jolting time back into motion... What a wonderful story.

Cecil Aijima: I'm really glad I was able to be in this commercial with you, Ren. It's been an honor to work towards the same goal and create something special.

Ren Jinguji: I agree! Let's see this journey of ours through together, Cesshi.

Episode 10

Ren Jinguji: And that's a wrap! You did great, Cesshi... Hey man, what's up? Something on your mind?

Cecil Aijima: Oh... Hi, Ren. I was thinking about our characters in the commercial. What do you think became of them?

Ren Jinguji: Let's see... Well, they decided to enjoy the rest of the trip, didn't they? The final scene had them smiling on the way to the waterfall.

Ren Jinguji: I think they'd have treasured the newfound friendship and walked off to a brighter future. At least, that's how I pictured it while acting.

Cecil Aijima: Thank goodness! We're of the same mind. Yes, I'm certain their story will have had a happy ending.

Cecil Aijima: You know, I heard that there is indeed a lovely waterfall nearby. Not unlike the one in the commercial, in fact. What say we go check it out?

Ren Jinguji: Great idea. Let's retread the paths of our fictional counterparts, shall we?

Cecil Aijima: Yes, let's go! We have a journey to enjoy, too, and a bright future on the horizon!
