Well, I uploaded this thing before, which is why I pretty much released 13 chapters in the same day. I just hope this gets a decent amount of views, despite how obscure and badly-meshed these canons are...

One day, at the WildKat Cafe...
"I'm booooored right now," groaned Shiki.
"You can think of something interesting for us to do, right Neku?" said Joshua, slowly stirring his coffee.
"Why are you asking me? I'm as clueless as you two right now. Beat and Rhyme are at the skate park, and Mr. H is busy doing 'work'..." Before Neku could continue, he was interrupted by an odd group of men.
"Are you sure this is the place, Ippongi-san?" A man with long, blonde hair asked. He looked rather feminine, if not for his outrageous eyebrows.
"Yes, I'm sure, Saionji. Now be quiet, I'm trying to find us a good spot to sit," grumbled another man, with red and black hair at about the same length, forming a large spike... thing in the front. He had even MORE outrageous eyebrows.
"Excuse me," a brunette with a chin-length bob said politely. "Do you, by chance, know where the owner of this cafe is?"
"Back off, lady. What do you even want him for anyways?" Neku replied in a flat tone.
This, however, was not a good answer, for he had begun to walk up to Neku, "First of all, I am not a lady, a am a MAN. SECOND OF ALL-" The young brunette was interrupted by a much taller man, with large bluish-white dreadlocks. The man wearing dreadlocks began to approach the trio sitting at the table.
"I'm sorry for any inconvenience we may have given you, but do you, by any chance, know where a Mr. Sanae Hanekoma is? We would just like to order some items right now." This man certainly had a regal air.
"Oh, hey guys!" Mr. Hanekoma yelled in surprise. Apparently, he was finally done with "work".
"Hey Mr. H, do you know these guys?" Shiki asked.
Mr. H looked at the ceiling, as if he was trying to avoid Neku's question.
"Say, have you seen about 6-9 girls wandering around here?" asked a man with long, orange hair tied into a braid.
"Last I heard, they were trying to get tickets for JIN2," another man said, wearing a buzz cut and angular glasses.
"Oooh! You mean that idol singer? I hear he almost got kidnapped about a year ago," Shiki then pointed at the blonde. "I think you kinda looked like someone there!
"Funny story ..." a bald man with glasses replied.
"Are we gonna ORDER anything around here or not?" the guy with the spiky head roared.
"Calm down, Ryuuta-kun," Another tall man said. This time, he had an incredibly spiky beard to go with his hair, with a torn cap apparently stuck to it. "We'll have 9 of everything, please."
"Is this guy nuts!?" Neku thought.
"Oh come on, Neku. Don't tell me you haven't eaten 9 of everything in a store before," Joshua said snarkily.
"I SAID to keep that a secret."
"Well, it was necessary, given the context," Joshua replied. "I don't blame you."
"Wait, where's Shiki?"
To their surprise, Shiki was next to the blonde, asking questions about JIN2.
"So, can you get me tickets?" she asked.
"Why would we do that when we don't even know your name? Besides, we have better things to do than escort a bunch of brats." the blond replied stingily.
"My name's Shiki Misaki. My friend over there is Neku, and the other guy is Yoshiya Kiryuu, but people call him Joshua for short. My other friends Beat and Rhyme are at the skate park right now, but they might be back soon."
"Well, since you were so nice as to tell us, I'm Hayato Saionji. The arrogant man in red is Ryuuta Ippongi.
The man with dreadlocks is Kaoru Kiryuuin, while the brunette is Shinta Kikuchi. We also have Hajime Tanaka and Kai Doumeki here."
"What about the four guys over there?"
"The bald man with glasses is Tsuyoshi Moriyama, the guy with the long braid is Kenshin Sugita, the guy with the eye patch is Atsushi Saito-"
"And the guy crying in the corner with the mohikan is Ittetsu Suzuki," Ryuuta happily chimed in.
"Anyways, Saionji-san, can I come with you? And can I bring my friends with me?"
Ryuuta bumped Hayato on the shoulder. "C'mon, Saijoni, the girls would love some company with us, especially if they're younger!"
Shinta felt his face. "It still hurts when I touch my cheeks..."
Shiki then put her finger to her lip and said, "Oh, so that's why..."
Hayato pushed Ryuuta off. "How are we going to pay for everything? You know this will cost us millions, right?"
Ryuuta put his arm around Hayato and said, "Hello? Super-rich best buds here!"
Hayato was enraged. "First of all, we are not 'Best buds'. Just because we saved the world together doesn't mean we're the best of buddies just like that, OK!? Second," Hayato then pulled Ryuuta's ear towards his mouth and whispered, " I don't know if we can trust her. She looks like quite the social butterfly, and we can't have anyone revealing our secret! Especially since we made that alliance with THEM..."
Shiki then realized something. "Wait... Ippongi? Saionji? JIN2? WORLD-SAVING!? It all makes sense now, Neku!"
Neku groaned, "What's your crackpot theory this time? First you thought that random guy that passed by Hachiko was actually a prince in disguise, now this?"
Shiki flung her arm out to her side, "It can't just be a coincidence, Neku! Both Ryuuta Ippongi and Hayato Saionji... The bald guy said something about there being a 'funny story' about JIN2's near-abduction... Having to pick up 6-9 girls... Not to mention the rivalry between the two guys... Don't you see it, Neku? These people are the Ouendan from Yuuhi and Asahi!"
"What's so special about that?" Neku yawned. "There's Ouendan all over the place."
"Do you remember that sudden freeze a long while ago?"
"Yeah, so? What does that have to do with anything?
Joshua leaned over to Neku. "It has everything to do with anything, Neku. In fact, Spiky, Lion-head, Buzzcut, and those other two-"
"HEY! WE HAVE NAMES, YOU KNOW!" The entire Yuuhi squad yelled.
"Well, you have nicknames now, (Except for the backups, because they don't matter.) And you're going to like it. As I was saying, those 5 guys were cheering around Tokyo 6 years ago. They weren't really known for their deeds at first, but a call for their help has almost always been attributed with an unusual amount of success. However, after the meteor incident, they suddenly disappeared without a trace..."
Hayato then added to Joshua's description. "You see, our squad was formed a little more recently, after the infamous meteor incident. At first, the people in Asahi doubted us because of our inexperience. Fortunately, they warmed up to us rather quickly. Of course, when we found out that there was a new squad for Yuuhi..."
Neku sighed. "I get the point already, geez."
"Now I'm going to tell EVERYONE I KNOW!" Shiki squealed energetically.
"But that's what we're trying to AVOID!" Ryuuta yelled.
"Can I at least tell Beat and Rhyme? They're really good with secrets!" She then gave Ryuuta the biggest set of puppy-dog eyes that she could manage.
"Fine, but you can't tell anyone else!" He said, annoyed.
-Shiki is only fangirling them for plot purposes, don't mind her.
-If you're finding a lack of boob in this chapter, never fear! All the cheergirls will be here next chapter!
-The Agents will be here too. (And Divas.) They will be important!
-Yeah, I couldn't resist having a subtitle like that, it's an in-joke. Then again, so is my username.
