Saving 80,000 Gold in an Another World for Retirement - Chapter 323
Operation Idol 4
The reception is insane!!!!!!!!
No, wait, it’s already a blast!
Of course, cute 6 to 10-year-old girls in frilly outfits doing a beautifully coordinated dance… Also, with cat ears and a tail.
In addition, the costumes, music, and dance were all transcending the common sense of this world, and are ripped off from a certain anime work that is very popular in Japan… “homage and respect, quotes and references, reversed left and right!”.
Since it’s a “concert”, the children will have something like tambourine-like, triangle-like, diamond-like, maracas-like, and castanets-like instruments. which looks like something a Spaniard might try to hit you with when you say that to them…
The main music was played by the main group at the back of the stage, so it’s just an excuse to say that they were “playing instruments”. This was a “concert,” not a dance competition.
…But that doesn’t matter!
It’s not like we’re trying to win the prize.
As long as all the kids have fun and we can show off the juvenile group, that’s all that matters.
Although this event itself was mixed with serious people aiming to secure patrons, the majority of the performers say, “Let’s have fun together!”, so no one would have any complaints.
Aside from the performance of the main group that just finished, the juvenile group probably won’t be selected for their performance…
According to the custom around here, the only women allowed to wear clothes that show above the knees in public are prostitutes, dancers, and children under 10 years old.
…Even though they don’t mind exposing their back and cleavage to the fullest extent…
And so, the costumes of the children in the juvenile group were the ones with knees out, full of energy and fluttering, like the girl idol group and magical girl stuff in Japanese anime.
It’s an out-of-this-world performance.
…Okay, it’s time to wrap this up.
In the end, the children sang a short song together.
Of course, it’s an anime song with Japanese lyrics.
Haha! The copyright, moral rights, and the evil hand of J*SR*C can’t reach this far!
The mother of perfection!
“I have no regrets in my life!!” (Mitsuha)
“Mitsuha, you can’t die just yet!!” (Colette)
Colette-chan grabbed me by the shoulder and shook my body.
“Give, give!” (Mitsuha)
Colette-chan’s attacks are too effective for me!
“Eh, you want to do more? Mitsuha-neesama, are you into that kind of thing?” (Sabine)
“No! It’s not ‘give me’, it’s ‘give up’!” (Mitsuha)
I told Sabine-chan to her face.
No, well, neither of them was proficient in English yet…
I brought Colette-chan and Sabine-chan as photographers for the concert.
Yeah, how could we not document the sunny day of the juvenile group?!
Later, I’ll ask the Kifujin store manager to edit it.
For some reason, the manager was good at that kind of thing…
The juvenile group quickly went off the stage, followed by the main group carrying their instruments.
If we took our time and made the next performer wait, we would cause trouble. We had to hurry.
But still, they were very careful not to damage expensive instruments…
While musical instruments were expensive on earth, the price here wasn’t far from that.
That was apparently another reason why it was difficult for commoners to become musicians.
Even in Japan, it’s common for a single musical instrument to cost several hundred thousand or over a million dollars… So, in this world…
Brrrr, I’m having goosebumps…
I feel sorry for the 3 teams that played after our performance.
Because of the excitement the main group and the juvenile group had caused, the audience was not listening to them as they had to perform during the aftermath of our performance.
Even after the next performance started, the audience was talking to each other about the heavenly performance…… or whatever it’s called…… without controlling their volume. I’m so sorry!
……Well, those slots were filled by those with patronage from powerful aristocrats, big merchant owners, and the like, and the performances of poor musicians who really wanted patrons and sponsors ended before the Society’s turn, so no problem!
The Society didn’t interfere with musicians who were helpless and needed patrons…
I hope the music of the main group stimulated their creativity! Yeah…!
…But please, don’t compose classical pieces inspired by anime theme songs and drama songs!!
And so, the main group, whose music was excellent but had poor technique, and the juvenile group, whose popularity was outstanding with their wicked “performance”, did not win the regular prizes.
Well, no one was disappointed, because it was obvious. It was fun, and everyone was happy enough.
One of the member’s family was in tears. They were worried that their daughter, who was shy, quiet, and lacking courage, was able to see her energetic and happy face…
Even so, we received special prizes.
The main group won the “New Composer Award”, and the children’s group won the “Angel Award”.
Neither of them seems to be the ones that were originally prepared.
The technique was too poor to be given a proper award, but if no award was given for such a popular and innovative piece and dance that was likely to have a great impact on the music world in the future, the judges of this concert would later be accused by the audience for having “holes in their eyes” or “vents in their ears”. The judges of the concert panicked and made up a special award for the piece… On the spot…
And to take advantage of the popularity and recognition of the main group and the juvenile group, the sponsors agreed to the awards as well…
Yeah, as expected, wealthy sponsors are sensible…
“Mitsuha-sama, can’t we do something similar to the Juvenile Group?”
“Oh, that’s exactly what I was thinking!”
“Me as well!”
At the first tea party of the Society after the concert, such a request arose among the members.
“Eh, no, at your age, it’s not good to show off your knees or move around flashily…
Especially as the daughter of a noble…” (Mitsuha)
Honestly, what are they really talking about?…
“…No, I didn’t mean we’re going to wear a costume that shows our knees! As long as the costume is properly dignified, fluttery, and cute……
And we don’t have to bounce around like that, as long as it’s graceful and fun…”
“That’s right! We can do that!!”
…Why is everyone so enthusiastic?
“Ano~, did something happen?” (Mitsuha)
Are~. Something happened, didn’t it?
“Mitsuha-san… You really have no idea, don’t you…” (Michelle)
Oh, when you’re in trouble, ask Micchan!
“After the concert, the children in the Juvenile Group were so popular that we were flooded with requests for them to come and perform at the parties…
I have been replying to the applications, but some of them are addressed to the parents of the children in the Juvenile Group, and it seems that some of the families have power relationships, connections, or factions that make it difficult for them to refuse, and they are having trouble…” (Michelle)
“Eh? What are they asking individuals to do? It only looks good as a group. Moreover, the music that accompanies it can only be played by the main group.” (Mitsuha)
Yeah, it would obviously be impossible.
“I think they may be trying to get the parents in trouble so that the parents will cry to the upper management of the Society and ask them for help…” (Michelle)
That makes sense…, no, wait?
“I get what you’re saying, but what does that have to do with imitating the juvenile group?” (Mitsuha)
“That’s the thing…” (Michelle)
Since everyone was silent, Micchan explained again.
“Everyone just wanted to be treated like the Juvenile Group and be pampered!” (Michelle)
What the hell~!!
“You’re called saints, you’re immensely popular, yet you’re jealous of the kids and want to be more popular~?!
You’ve known, seen, and heard that it will only get you into trouble, but you still choose that path~~?!” (Mitsuha)
The members were silent and turned their heads down in response to my too-straight-forward remarks.
“No, well, I wouldn’t say that there is no such thing, but the truth is, the children of the Juvenile Group seemed to be having a lot of fun, so…”
The one who blushed a little while saying that was Serumia-chan, the second daughter of the Count of Daratsu, who proposed the Juvenile Group project.
Hmmm…. surely, there was less entertainment here than on earth.
Furthermore, there’s no way that a noble’s daughter would be allowed to do anything that would involve even the slightest bit of danger, even if it were a boy. If she gets hurt or her face gets scratched, her value as a tool for politics will be drastically reduced…
In other words, unless the head of the family was a very tolerant and eccentric person, he may allow his son to train actively in sports competitions, hunting, martial arts, etc., but still, his daughter would not be allowed to do so.
The daughter will hardly ever leave the house, and will be forced to study under her tutor, The Governess, the essential subjects of a noblewoman’s daughter: etiquette, music, painting, and sewing…, even though it’s unlikely that she will ever sew anything in the future.
Incidentally, the tutor, The Governess, has the authority to punish the students by hitting them, skipping snacks and meals, etc., and was apparently very much feared.
Even Micchan’s face was cramping when the topic came up, umu.
The higher the rank, the stricter the education, and the higher the passing mark.
…Well, that’s about right, I guess.
And of course, when staying at the mansion, or even at the royal capital mansion, they couldn’t have friends close in age that they can talk to and get along well with, no problems with factions or parental titles, and free to do so without worrying about interests.
…The only thing that they could hang on to was the “Society”…
The joy of working together with friends toward a goal.
And the joy of accomplishing it.
The operation support for Carlea-chan’s father, Count Silbert, Was our Society’s debut.
Then a big rescue operation at Wennar Barrony, Cherilia-chan’s place.
The busy days of taking care of the Juvenile Group in preparation for the concert.
…And many other things, it must have been fun…
“No, everyone just wants to act like an idol!!” (Michelle)
Well then, back to the normal schedule.
Thanks for reading Mitsuha’s (failed)endeavors. (^^)/
