The seven of them are traveling in Romania, where peaceful sceneries of the past still remain.
On that day, they had arrived at a beach on the Black Sea！
There were young people with mud packs on.
Actually, here in Romania, there's a national project meant to promote beauty and called 『The Great Cosmetic Country』. In short, there's a lot of beauties. At once, the group tried the mud packs.
Mie「Waaa～！What a feeling」
Suuzan had changed nationality.
In addition, (his head) was decorated with shells. The result:
The seven of them, whose skin had become smooth, had a great time on the beach like they hadn't had in a while.
His foreign-looking face was a complex. He looked like a blue-eyed, 100％ Italian. However, inside, he was a Nara dialect speaking only, 100％ Japanese. Due to that inborn gap, Alec had suffered and had become withdrawn. Still, Alec was floating by himself, body and mind.
Alec, the self-proclaimed game genius, was immersed into a a virtual game world, alone. He finished virtual Mario in 5 minutes, and then・・・ fell asleep.
The next day, in the restaurant where they were having lunch・・・
That afternoon, the Love Bus was moving away from the Black sea, towards western Romania. They arrived at the capital, Bucharest.
15 years have past since the revolution, and the people, who adjusted capitalism, filled the city.
Here was a national hospital, specializing in pediatrics. Here would be the place which would see a great change in the fate of a romance！
Group「Good afternoon （in Romanian）」
The, Mircea went to see one of the girls.
Mircea「That girl has been suffering from asthma since she was born. So she has been living in this hospital since she was small」
Larka was Mircea's niece. Larka, who had been affected by the disease since she was born, was separated from her family, and had been living in this hospital for 5 years. The kids in this ward were of course even unable to go to school, to play outside, due to tertiary asthma.
Since the revolution, Bucharest had been showing a rapid development. However, the downside to that was the beginning of an increase in car exhaust emissions , and serious pollution problems of all kinds.
Hide「You wanna see your friends？I guess you can't see them because you're in this hospital, right?」
「Larka's family is far from here, and she can hardly see them. She cries every day, saying "I wanna see my sister, I wanna see my sister"・・・」
Larka, who couldn't benefit from the love of her family, had closed her heart. On that day, Hide was not able to see her smiling face.
Then, after the group had visited the hospital...
From Hide's diary“The loneliness of not being able to see your friends. The loneliness of not being able to see your beloved sister. I wanna see Larka smile・・・”
Wasn't there anything they could do for the children・・・?
The group decided to go visit the hospital again.
The one who had come down dancing was Yuukun (note: an ex-Ainori participant), the God of Kamishibai.
Hide had something on his mind・・・
Aya「I really hate speaking in a loud voice, you know, and I'm poor at talking」
Aya was poor at talking out loud in front of people.
Aya「 I'm good at drawing pictures, so when I draw it makes me really happy」
Then they started making the kamishibai.
Hide「I'm glad. It's like, fun. Can you draw a boy who seems like he's smiling, but not really laughing?」
They would perform kamishibai in Romanian.
Aya「If I erase the line around him, his face looks like Koro(Japanese cartoon character)'s」
For the kids' smiling faces・・・
Local staff「Yeah. Well, it's ok. Aya's pronunciation seems better」
The next day, the seven of them had gone to visit the kids at the hospital for the second time. Each member of the group had prepared a performance.
First, Umechan wearing a Noh mask！Her game plan was to draw the kids' attention with her face painted. However...
Rather than getting the kids on her side, the kids seemed like they wanted to pull away from her.
Umechan「I'm sorry, I startled you. I'm really sorry・・・」
First, Suuzan introduced a supernatural power he had never shown before. However, it was ad lib, i.e. he hadn't discussed it with the others first.
Suddenly, Umechan had been turned into a camel. How on earth would she get over that？
Suuzan 「You're a camel, a camel」
However, this Ume camel was a really big hit with the kids！
In the end, the sickroom looked like a small zoo. Finally, Alec! What animal would he be turned into, next？
The usually withdrawn, Italian-like Alec went like this:
Alec「♪The nights I can't sleep, it's because of you～♪♪My first kiss, was that kiss from you～♪I Will Give You All My Love♪」
Their performance was a success, and the seven of them brought the kids out of their shell.
Hide「Could I have everybody gather around？Around here」
Then, the kamishibai started.
Aya・Hide「This is the story of Toraemon」
That was the kamishibai Hide had made for the kids. But it was also a message for Aya, who was next to him. Nobuta was the hero, who had no self-confidence and didn't believe in himself. Hide was comparing Nobuta to Aya, whose weakness was also that she didn't have self-confidence, and couldn't even make a step forward. Then, at the end of the story Nobuta could change and get self-confidence.
Their kamishibai was a great success.In addition, Larka・・・ laughed.
That was the smiling face Hide wanted to see the most.
Umechan「Did you make that story yourself？」
紙芝居をやり遂げたAya, who accomplished the kamishibai, felt really fulfilled.
The confidence to pull the group together as the one in charge for meals・・・
Arashi“I think it's great that she's so different from before. I think it's too bad I couldn't bring that out in her”
On that day, in Arashi's Power Up Notebook: 「Living hell＝In this world you live in, to meet with a situation in which you are tortured as if you're in hell・・・」
