The Story (ストーリー) screen is where you can read the stories in A3!.

Mini Conversations: Short dialogues unlocked by playing a Practice Mission, provided you meet certain conditions. Each practice mission partner will have 3 short dialogues with the player, and one short conversation with them and another character.
Event Story: Each Event has a story associated with it, consisting of 10 chapters and an Epilogue. These are unlocked by earning points in the event. Reading an event story chapter for the first time grants 1 Dia. Some event stories that you did not unlock during the event can be read using a Magic Bookmark.
The Members Screen (劇団員) is where you can manage the cards you acquire.
Member List: Allows you to view detailed card information, as well as lock and unlock them. This can be done by tapping the card you wish to lock/unlock and tapping the padlock button in the top right corner.
Waiting Room: Allows you to store up to 500 cards. Cards in the waiting room cannot be selected for lessons or performances. You can move cards freely from your Member List to the Waiting Room and vice versa.
Leaving: Sell your cards for coins. There are three buttons on this screen. The left-most button automatically selects all of the Kamekichi cards, which have no use other than to sell for money. The second button clears your selection. The pink button confirms your selection. Locked cards will not be selectable on this screen.

Consume cards to level up cards and leader skills.
Use Special Training items (特訓アイテム) to increase card stats and adlib skills.
If you own more than one of the same card, you can merge them here by first tapping the card you wish to bloom and then tapping the card(s) you want to merge with it. The stats (card level, skill level etc) of the card you pick first will be kept, so make sure you pick the card with the higher stats first. Each time you bloom a card, the maximum level will increase by 10; the first time you bloom a card the art will also change. You can bloom cards up to twice in total.
The Acting Screen (お芝居) is where you can Practice, Perform, or watch Plays.
The Main tab is where you can do activities related to Troupe Plays.
The Daily Practice tab features special practices each day of the week that give higher rates for certain item drops. There are no performances or plays to watch.
During Events, you can play special event practices from the Event tab. This will include practices and performances. Troupe Events will include a play to watch; after the event ends, the practice will be added to the Main tab to be played anytime. Seasonal Event practices and performances expire once the event ends; they cannot be replayed, but any conversations unlocked will remain in the Story Hub to read.
Practices can be played by tapping one of the white sections. The purple bar shows how much LP is required to play the practice. Each practice consists of 10 lessons, each of which gives Rank EXP, increases card level EXP and Affection, and offers a chance to obtain a random item or card. It also has a set of Practice Missions and Mastery checkpoints which give rewards or unlock Mini Conversations when fulfilled.
To do a performance, tap the yellow button labelled Performance Set-Up. Performances give item drops and coins. During events, they also give event points or items which are used to gain rewards. For more information, see Team Building.
You can use Platinum Tickets to watch plays. During Troupe Events, you needs to use Play Tickets for the corresponding troupe to watch the play. These play tickets are only valid during the event; once the play is added to the Main tab, you can only use Platinum Tickets.
To watch a play, tap the green button labelled Play Set-Up. From this screen, you can select the play cast from any of the cards in your card album, i.e. any cards you have owned at some point, even if you no longer own them. You can also view an outline (あらすじ) of the play as well as a description of the cast (キャスト) and details of the original cast characters. These play details can be viewed from the Play Hub.
The Outside Work screen allows you to select two different members to perform outside work, earning coins and items.
Pressing the Completion button will activate a screen that allows you to see which Outside Work Conversations you have viewed. Completing all of the possible conversation combinations gives you a title.
