Saving 80,000 Gold in an Another World for Retirement - Chapter 320
Operation Idol 1
“… A concert, huh?” (Mitsuha)
Such a topic came up at the Society tea party.
“Yes. It’s held every year in the royal capital… Registration for the event will begin soon.
Since the selection process is based only on document screening, if our Society were to apply, there would be no chance of being rejected…” (Michelle)
Well, that’s right. Our society is famous and very popular. And, as a group of noble daughters, we look gorgeous and have powerful connections.
For the organizers of the event, there’s no way they can turn down such a delicious panda attracting customers at the document screening.
Somehow, it sounds interesting.
I myself have no artistic talent of any kind, neither sculpture, painting, nor music.
But fortunately, you don’t have to be talented as a creator or performer to enjoy good things…
Though it would be unfortunate if I couldn’t appreciate and enjoy art since I couldn’t tell the difference between good and bad art.
Still, I don’t mind viewing it.
Even if we apply as Society, it won’t necessarily mean that everyone will perform together…
It would be a good way to further promote the Society’s name among the general public and create a positive impression.
…Besides, I especially like the fact that it doesn’t cost money.
“What instruments would be used?” (Mitsuha)
“Ah, there are no restrictions on instruments. You can even sing without instruments.
Not only the nobility but also the commoners can participate and enjoy the show, so the rules are very lax.” (Michelle)
“Good! Focus on the morning edition, then decide on the evening edition! Kobe newspaper, part-time job news!!” (Mitsuha)
“…What is that, that incomprehensible phrase…” (Michelle)
Micchan is holding her head, but that doesn’t matter!
“Since we’re at it, I’m going to pick this red application!” (Mitsuha)
“Ah, I don’t understand what’s going on anymore!” (Michelle)
And so, I decided to apply the Society to participate.
“Your participation has been accepted! Both of them…”
The news I had been waiting for came.
Now we can start preparing, both teams.
…That’s right, “two teams”.
Our Society and the Society Juvenile Group…
The instruments in this world were similar to those on earth.
Well, two hands and five fingers each. One mouth and almost the same audible range. With such similarities, it’s no wonder that similar instruments are made. Even if the number of strings is slightly different.
Perhaps many different instruments were invented on earth, and the minor ones and crazy ones were weeded out, then the present famous ones spread.
Then it would be no surprise if many similar things were invented in this world, and the good ones that everyone approved of survived, resulting in the spread of something similar to the major musical instruments of the earth.
There might be some very minor instruments on earth that we don’t know about, somewhere in the corner of a country somewhere…
Of the ones I know, cajón, quena, kalimba, gopichand, and other great sounding instruments…
That’s why, in my mind, I put the names of earth instruments to similar ones.
Even though it has only a few strings in it, it’s a “violin”! Then there’s a “piano” without black keys or foot pedals!!
It’s ok, I’m not going to get into the details!
The members of Society itself are all of reasonable age.
So they talk about gossip, trendy fashions, favorite actors in the troupe, and so much more.
But the children in the Juvenile Group would be bored with all the talking, and there are not many topics that they can enjoy together in the first place. Since they have only lived only a few years, they can’t possibly have such a wealth of knowledge and topics to talk about.
So I have to organize some fun events for them and create opportunities for everyone to get to know each other.
I thought this concert was the perfect chance…
And that it’s a great opportunity to let the people of the Royal Capital know that our Society has a sub-organization, the Juvenile Group…
At the concert, the main group performed normally, but the juvenile group didn’t play any instruments.
It must be difficult for children aged 6 to 10 to be forced to practice musical instruments even in a place of fun social events, even though they are being taught by their tutor, the Governess, at home.
So, the main group took care of those troublesome parts and let the children enjoy themselves.
……Yes, by singing and dancing.
With instruments, if one person makes a mistake, everyone gets in trouble, but with singing and dancing, it doesn’t matter if you make a few mistakes.
Instead of doing it perfectly without making mistakes, we’ll make it fun and energetic.
Unlike the shitty serious concert held in a state-run music hall.
Since it seems to be an event in which commoners also participate, it would be nice to have some fun.
……And now that the children’s monopoly uhauha plan went to nothing, I can make them feel more attached to me by providing cute costumes and equipment, also showing them samples and teaching them!
Of course, I can’t sing or dance myself, so I’ll just show them the divine tool Blu-ray disc that I borrowed from the goddess.
Yeah, our Society is considered to be “connected to the Goddess”, so this is acceptable.
It would only confuse the parents when their young children tell them “I saw angels singing”.
It won’t make them money or enhance their power, and they can’t use force to make us show it to them.
In the unlikely event that it was the ‘real thing’, no one knows what kind of divine punishment would be given if they interfered strangely…
Yeah, no nobleman would risk it when he could send his daughter to the sub-organization of the Society!
Alright, let’s start picking songs!
A song that brings out everyone’s cuteness to the fullest…
“Mitsuha-san, we’re going to start practicing right away!” (Michelle)
“No, of course, it’s natural since we, the Society, are also performing. First of all, we need to check everyone’s strengths and skills in their instruments and decide which parts they will be in charge of…
Once that is decided, each of us can practice at home.” (Michelle)
I have no instrument I’m good at, no skills to play them… At all.
The Society members looked dumbfounded.
“Mi-Mitsuha-san. Ah, you, how come you don’t have any musical talent?
Usually, you practice a lot of things from a very young age, and if you are the daughter of a noble or royal family, you will have a lot of practice…
And yet, the music and the instruments are in this state of destruction.
I can’t. It’s impossible…” (Michelle)
Micchan was stunned.
The other members are also frozen with their mouths open.
Some are even shedding tears…
…No, I knew I had no talent.
But is it enough to cry out of pity?
