Box: Mikitani-senpai... this "Kobiki-Uta performed for the concert band's sake"
Box: is almost over.
Box: Let's raise the tension for the 4th movement, "Finale."
(below panel): Volume 1 goes on sale 9/4!!
Box: First, you two!
Increase the tension!!
Box: I'm counting on you!!
Opus 15: My Note
(note: song reference is "Boku Note" by Sukima Switch)
(Miki): I'm begging you, Kamine-kun... please rethink this...!
Miki: That song... is the one we performed for a competition in our 3rd year of middle school...
Miki: In the Western Kanto Competition, I... made a mistake
Miki: in the final solo, and for a moment, the entire song stopped!!
Miki: I was the trigger that made Megumi like this...!!
Kamine: If that were true, then
Kamine: you wouldn't want to play it... and yet, you continue to carry around
Kamine: the score that Oura-senpai transcribed, don't you?
Miki: don't know why...
Miki: I just... feel like I need to carry this with me for my entire life...
Kamine: ...I think
Kamine: the answer's in this piece.
(Kamine): Let's find it!
(Miki): What... are you planning to do?!
overcome everyone else
(Miki): I can't do that!!
(Miki): That's just plain impossible!! The bass clarinet... someone like me... can't stand out!!
(baton strips, half-hidden): Louder, bass clarinet!!
Box: ...I heard about it from Tokisaka.
(Toki): The bassoon and bass clarinet
(Toki): are ninjas.
(Toki): There's a limit to their volume, so identifying them amidst a large group is difficult, but...
(Toki): Their "tone" is unlike that of any other instrument... They have no substitutes.
(Toki): Their presence or absence from an ensemble has a massive impact on the depth of sound and range of expression.
(Toki): Instruments whose greatness is only realized once they are gone.
(Toki): That is the truth of the bassoon and bass clarinet!!
(Oura): are you doing, Shinobu, Kamine...!!
(Oura): We have both bass clarinets and sopranos, so
(Oura): if you force things like that... it will destroy the balance between the two...!!
Box: Thanks to the trauma of your botched solo, you're afraid to stand out.
(Otowa): "The walking dictionary of music"
Box: And so you hid your knowledge and physical strength.
Box: Why, then,
(baton strips): That's not enough, bass clarinet!! Louder!!
Box: did you keep at it?
Box: Why are you working so hard like this
Box: to follow my conducting?!
Box: It's likely due to... an anguished desire of "not wanting your failure to be an impediment
Box: If so, then you should play this song, which you once botched, with all your might,
(baton strips): Give it all you've got
Box: and turn that desire into resolve, right here and now!!
(Oura): ...with you...!!
Box: !! ...Just a little more.
Box: Now comes
Box: Utebi-senpai's timpani solo!!
(baton strips): Bass clarinet, match the timpani's tension
Utebi: C'mon and let's do this, Mikitaniiiii!!
(Miki): No way.
(Miki): I can't. No way.
(Girl): ...Mikitani single-handedly...
(Girl): overpowered the bass part?!
(Girl): I never knew... that Mikitani
(Girl): was capable of a performance like this!!
(Oura): ...This sound...
(Oura): of Shinobu's...
(Oura): Why is Kamine able to draw it out of him?!!
(Oura): When we were in elementary, we admired the orchestra,
(Oura): and the two of us started playing the clarinet... even though it was difficult,
(Oura): we had so much fun that that didn't even matter.
(Oura): He's returned to the sound
(Oura): from back then?!!
(Souma): This is bad, Kamine-kun.
(Souma): Mikitani's sound is so strong that it's destroying the balance between soprano and bass!!
(Toki): The climax of this song is a round of bass vs. mid-range!!
(Toki): A round doesn't work unless all parts are equal in power!!
Man: The soprano part's way too weak!!
(above man): Gehaa!
Man: What're you gonna do about it!!
Man's label: Mid-range
Woman's label: Soprano
(left of woman): Ehhh...
Box: That much is obvious!!
Box: it's the Oura faction!!!
Box: The people who adore Oura-senpai... have earnestly followed her lead!!
Box: The closeness of the clarinet section will become the sopranos' power!!
(Oura): has made me remember
(Oura): that I love music.
(Oura): I love music so much it hurts.
(Oura): The grand parts,
sfx bubble: Creak
sfx bubble: Creak
(Oura): the hard parts and the bothersome parts,
(Oura): I love them all.
sfx bubble: Craaack
(Oura): How I wanted to aim for the top, improve,
(Oura): and work hard... despite the frustration!!
(2nd panel sfx): Huff huff huff
(Oura): The goal's...
(Oura): so far away that I can't even see it.
(Oura): But... it's a wide open space.
(Oura): I have room to grow.
(Oura): I wonder how far away Shinobu is?
(Oura): I'm going to catch up to him right away!!
Box: Now... Mikitani-senpai.
Box: ...This is your final solo.
Box: It shouldn't be so hard, right?
Box: After all,
Box: every last one
Box: of your mines has already exploded.
Box: The next day
