Idol M@ster Cinderella Girls Mezase! Cinderella No.1! Sagisawa Fumika



Sagisawa Fumika's opening talk... I can just... talk about myself, right? Well... Before I came to this studio to record my CD, I visited a book cafe. I had never been there before, so I was a bit nervous, but I could get used to the place thanks to its calm atmosphere which came from the scents of books and coffee. I also found the first edition of an old novel and I pored over it. I was almost late because I spent too much time reading it.

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

Thank you. I'm glad I was on time. I'd like to visit there again for cafe latte and books with old covers. By the way, people often talk about the difference between cafe latte and cafe au lait. While cafe latte is a mixture of espresso and milk, cafe au lait is a mixture of drip coffee and milk. Since cafe latte itself means "cafe" and "latte", in other words "coffee" and "milk", there is no difference. But in Italy where it came from, coffee usually means espresso. That's why people distinguish them like that in Japan.

(Boo-)

Ah... Sorry. I lost track of the topic... I'm sorry. Then let's begin.

*******************

Special debut project, Mezase! Cinderella No.1! I'm Sagisawas Fumika, your host of Mezase! Cinderella No.1 where new idols work hard to become tomorrow's top idols! I'm sorry to start the show with a story that is nothing to do with idols.

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

Thank you. When I lost track of the topic again, don't hesitate to tell me.

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

Okay... well... Self introduction first. My name is Sagiaswa Fumika. I'm a 19 year old student. I attend a college while helping my uncle's bookstore. His bookstore has a lot of books, so it gives me a pleasure of meeting new books I haven't read yet and...

(Boo-)

Ah... I did it again. Sorry. Hmm... As I like books, my hobby is browsing bookstores. It's hard to describe the pleasure when I see an unfamiliar book, so I don't know how to express it... It just makes me happy. My major is literature, but as a mere bookworm, I once again realized that writing is a really difficult work to do.

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

I made a CD debut lately and received a nice song. I still have a long way to go, but I tried to convey the feeling of every single word. Of course the melody is great and it showed me a new way which is different from the world of books.

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

Singing was sort of embarrassing to me... but I'll do my best. So... please root for me. I'll try hard to make this show decent too.

*******************

"Special training! Face yesterday's myself by Memory talk!" It's a corner where I talk about what happened yesterday, and rediscover my charm. Yesterday you say...? Yesterday was my day off, so I made a bookmark at home. Oh, making a bookmark is my hobby too. I read several books at once so I need the same number of bookmarks. When I put my own bookmark in my favorite book, it feels as if I enter the world of the book...

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

There are several origin stories of the word "bookmark(
)". Long ago, people snapped branches when they hiked to mark their current positions. So they named it "snapping a branch(枝折り)" which is the pronunciation of bookmark(しおり). Some say that the word came from "bending a branch". In Chinese character "bookmark()", two (dry) are lined up, which implies it is arranged. Plus, bookmarks are made of wood(). That's how the word was made.

(Boo-)

Ah... I'm getting off the subject again. I'm sorry. I did it without even realizing it...

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

Fufu, you're generous. Looking back myself...? I think this moment could be a sort of bookmark. When we look back and bring back memories, we make the bookmarks in our hearts...

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

I guess I was condescending a bit. I'm a little ashamed... This was the memory talk corner.

*******************

"Lesson! Increase your acting power! Ad-lib situation". In this corner, I challenge to acting which is an essential skill to idols by ad-libbing in a situation according to an assignment. This is today's topic.

(Bababam)

"Confess your love to your crush in an empty library" ...Nobody is... in the library? Hmm... I'm sure most of libraries have librarians...? ...Yes? Behind bookshelves? But you should be quiet in a library...

(Boo-)

Yes? "For example, if a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" I see... That's a very philosophical question. I think this assignment is worth trying. First of all, physically, when a tree falls, it will make a sound. But if no one is around to observe it, you can't prove that it did. This philosophical question came from the thought experiment of Schrödinger. According to this, an observers influences an event itself, which means...

(Boo Boo Boo-)

Eh... "You want to listen to words of love, not philosophy?" I see. I made the mistake again... Then, I need to talk about... "love". Well... I read all kinds of books, so I sometimes read love stories. But I've been thinking that such things are nothing to do with my life, so...

(Boo-)

I already heard that this corner is tough, but this is more difficult than I thought... I've got it. I'll try my best.

(Dirin~)

I like you.

(Boo-)

Well... I think I expressed the idea concisely and clearly... Yes? You couldn't feel my emotion? Surely... I couldn't imagine the feeling in detail, which is why it lacked my emotion. It's hard. I wonder why people started to call it "confession" in the first place...

(Boo-)

Okay, I see what you mean, so please... give me more time... Okay, I think I'm ready. Would you play the music?

(Dirin~)

Imagine this book is me, and borrow it.

(Boo-)

Was that a wrong answer too...? Yes? "Don't act like a librarian who recommends books?" Fufu, that was a witty comment. It seems we've talked about the topic enough, so let's move on to the next corner...

(Boo Boo Boo Boo -)

I knew you wouldn't just let me skip it... What should I do to overcome this huge challenge... Confession... in a library... In a library, people... borrow... Ah! I came up with an idea! Well... Would you play the music again?

(Dirin~)

Well... Please borrow me with the book!

(Ding-dong Ding-dong Ding-dong)

Fufu, I guess you liked it. Did I pass the lesson then?

(Bababam~)

Thank you. I'm so glad that I made it. I hope I won't be in a situation where I have to confess my love. This was
Ad-lib situation corner.

*******************

This is the ending. I'm glad you have listened to my show. I think what I've experienced today will be a fine bookmark, and be put in the book called "my experience". And... although there were troubles here and there, I felt that straying from the my path might be fun... No, it's fun. Try departing from your path sometimes and enjoy yourself with appreciating flowers on the field or listening to voices of children having conversations. Just enjoy the different world for a while. And... at times, please think of me, Sagisawa Fumika. But please know that you can't borrow Sagisawa Fumika in libraries.

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

Fufufu.
Then the last petit corner! "Cast a spell on an ordinary word to make it cute! Cinderella word" and farewell.

(Dadadan)

"Book cover". I was your host, Sagisawa Fumika. I hope you have a great day...

Idol M@ster Cinderella Girls Mezase! Cinderella No.1! Katagiri Sanae


So, this is the recording studio... It's smaller and darker than I thought... Producer kun and other staffs are watching me through the glass. Which reminds me of an interrogation room... Well, I didn't expect to be in it. ...Ouch, all this tension makes my stomach hurt... Hey, don't you have a heartburn pill? Hangover pills would be fine too...

(Boo Boo-)

Somehow I feel humiliated... Eh!? The recording will start soon!? W, Wait a minute! I'm pretty nervous right now! Just put yourself in my shoes. Making a debut in my age and being a radio host at the same time isn't easy... Hgg... I'm fine, I'm fine. This is neither a jail nor an interrogation room. This is nothing compare to the day I
did an undercover operation in nightspots! Yeah, a drunkard made me drink whisky... Ah, yes! Producer kun, I have a great idea! What? Of course it's an idea to loosen up! I want a barley flavored drink... Beer!

(Boo Boo Boo Boo -)

What!? Stop making that sound. You know what they say, alcohol is lubricant of human. I can relieve my tension, and when my sexy hot body is heated up, it will bring out mature attraction. Killing two birds with one stone~ I saw one in the studio fridge ~ Please~ Please~? Just one glass~

(Boo Boo Boo Boo -)

They won't be able to see me anyway? You're young~ Stimulating imagination is the best way to turn someone on~ Then how about a sip? I beg of you. Please? Can I?

(Boo Boo Boo Boo Boo -)

What? You can't allow it because that's for the after party? I see... Drinks after work is special. I'm afraid I can't drink the beer for now. But producer kun, you know quite a lot. I'm impressed. Then, instead of the beer in the fridge... I'll go to a convenient store and buy one...

(Boo Boo Boo Boo Boo -)

I was kidding. Don't be so mad~ Yes? Drinking during a radio show is a source of all accidents? Sure... Accidents aren't good. Well said, producer kun! As a former police officer, I shouldn't let that happen. Furthermore, this is my first radio show after my debut.
In other words, I'm at work! I gathered my sense! Alright, let's do this! But, I need more than a glass at the after party.

(Ding... Ding-dong...)

OK! Let's begin! ...But I'm still nervous...

********************

"S, Special debut project, Mezase! Cinderella No.1! This is a show where new idols work hard to increase their idol power and become tomorrow's top idols!"
 [Mezase! Cinderella No.1!] Fuu... I'd better follow the script for now. And... it's time for an introduction. Hello, nice to meet you. I'm Kata... Ka... Katagiri Sanae.

(Boo...)

It's okay. I think I barely made it! My hobbies are getting a massage and going to a public bath. They are pretty Japanese style, right? Ah, speaking of Japanese style, I do judo too! I have a black belt, so I'm good at tightening. Oh, I almost forgot. I'm a former police officer, which is why I learned several martial arts. Ah... I should have said that first. Well, can you edit what I just said?

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

Thank god. And next... next... I'm... eh... well... 8 years old!

(Boo Boo-)

What? You can't make a lady tell her age, that's sexual harassment! Don't make me arrest you!

(Boo Boo-)

Ughh... I realize the preciousness of the state power after losing it... I have no choice. My age is... fresh t...twenty eight~

(Boo... Ding-dong)

Yeah. It is necessary for a mature woman to know how to deceive. And I
'm confident about my body. It's pretty curvy, you know. I take exercise every day, and I'm busty. I'm sure... I can still work as a gravure model!

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

Yeah~ You're a good judge of people. I'm a glamorous... Wait, did someone just say I will be 30 soon?

(Boo Boo Boo Boo Boo-!)

Of course. I have good hearing, so don't even dream of deceiving me. Let's start the first corner!

********************

"Special training! Face yesterday's myself by Memory talk!" It's a corner where I talk about what happened yesterday, look back at myself and rediscover my charm. Hmm... I'm getting relaxed, but still something is missing. Hmm~ A memory... memory... Well~ talking about my previous job isn't a good idea... Ah! I got scouted while questioning my producer. Can I talk about...

(Boo-)

Oh, that's NG? Then... can I talk about a roof tile breaking contest or a drinking contest during a fireworks festival?

(Boo Boo -)

I thought so... Those are not cute stories. Hmm, well... Yeah! Maybe I can tell you a behind story stuff. In TV shows, cops buy suspects katsudon during interrogations, right? ...they don't? Well, those scenes were common back in the days! Wait, not that long ago! Anyway, that's not allowed in the real world. Because it counts as bribing suspects, which makes it illegal.

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

...But since I wasn't a detective, it was nothing to do with me. So listeners, don't commit a crime just because you want to eat katsudon! Promise Sanae Onee-san, okay?

(Diriring~)

Oh yes! I made it! No, wait. Come to think of it, the story was irrelevant to my charm... This isn't good... I, I must do something in the next corner!

********************

"Lesson! Increase your acting power! Ad-lib situation". In this corner, I challenge to acting which is an essential skill to idols by ad-libbing in a situation according to an assignment!
 Let's see... Today's topic is~ Oh, wait! ...I'm sure this is a siren! Something must have happened! Everyone, move out!

(Sanae rushes out)

15:46, the target is arrested! You, why were you being chased? Speak! ...What? You ate katsudon without paying a bill? If you want katsudon that much, I'll buy you one when I interrogate you. So tell everything to the officers. And don't ever do that again.

(The suspect is picked up by police)

That was a sad case... Ah, producer kun! I'm sorry. I have good hearing. I heard the siren in the studio... Wait! Who's a devil? A, Anyway... as a former police officer, hearing the siren made my blood boil... But it disqualifies me from an idol, doesn't it? And I couldn't even express my charm...

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

Eh? It was full of my charm? Really? Waa~ Then my first radio show is a huge success! Oh, right. Why don't we start a cop show right after this show?

(Boo Boo-)

W, Well, I thought so... Now, let's go back to the studio.

********************

Phew~ I was so worried at the beginning, but it somehow worked out for me. Great. To celebrate my successful debut, let's drink a toast!

(Boo-)

Ah... Okay. There is one last corner... Hmm! Then the last petit corner! "Cast a spell on an ordinary word to make it cute! Cinderella word" and farewell.

(Dararan~)

"Cheers!" Alright, it's over~ Thank you for your supports! Hey, producer kun! Bring some glasses! I bet the beer tastes great today!

Idol M@ster Cinderella Girls Mezase! Cinderella No.1! Sakurai Momoka



Momoka: Special debut project, Mezase! Cinderella No.1! This is a show where new idols try various things to increase their idol power. The host of "Mezase! Cinderella No.1" is me, Sakurai Momoka. My fans all over the country! Sorry to make you wait. Today, I'm going to deliver a show that is full of my love to you. Please follow my lead to the end.

********************

Momoka: "Idols need general knowledge. Can she do it by herself? Errand Challenge!" ...Wait, what is this theme? I'm not a kid. An errand? I think you underestimate me.


(Boo Boo-)


Momoka: "I don't think you've done an errand before?" That's offensive. I can do anything by myself. I know the result without even doing it.


(Boo Boo Boo Boo -)


Momoka: Oh my, if you say so... Okay. I, Sakurai Momoka will accomplish the errand perfectly.


(Ding-dong Ding-dong)


Momoka: Fufu. Nobly and gracefully, I'm going to make you surprised!


(rustling)


Momoka: So... I need to buy the things on this list. Hmm... ingredients for curried rice... Fufu. I might not look it, I'm fastidious about curried rice. When I lived in Kobe, I used to eat curried rice at a hotel with my parents. Leave it to me. I will serve you the best curried rice!


(Ding-dong Ding-dong)


Momoka: Then... I've got it! First I need to go to a shopping district by subway. Fufu, let's start the show!


********************


Momoka: T, There are so many people here... I haven't taken the train in Tokyo because my parents usually send me a person who escorts me. Waa... Ah, let's go to the shopping district. Now, could you escort me please?


(Boo Boo-)


Momoka: What was that attitude? Yes? There is no point if I don't take the train by myself? I see... That makes sense. Alright. I'll get on the train gracefully! Fufu. Could you prepare the ticket for me please?


(Boo Boo-)

Momoka: What? Do it on your own? Look, where are your manners!? Yeah, I'll buy the ticket. You stand right there and watch.


(Momoka walks away)


Momoka: Excuse me, sir.
Employee: Yes? How can I help you, kid?
Momoka: Sir, I'm not a kid. Would you not treat me like that please?
Employee: Hmm? Haha... I'm sorry.
Momoka: Fufu. I'm glad to hear that. Would you prepare the ticket to the next station?
Employee: There is a ticket machine over there. Why don't you use it?
Momoka: I don't know... how to use it.
Employee: Is this your first time taking the train?
Momoka: No. I've done it several times. But my servants usually prepare everything for me. Now, could you lead the way?
Employee: Follow me then.


(Beep-)

Employee: Ah, how old are you?
Momoka: Good gracious! How could you ask a lady her age! That's breaking the rules! ...But okay. I'll tell you for this once. I'm 12 years old!
Employee: Are you an elementary school student?
Momoka: Yes. I go to elementary school.
Employee: A ticket for children is 70 yen.
Momoka: T, Ticket for children!? I told you, don't treat me like a child!
Employee: But, you know...
Momoka: That's enough! I'm an adult now. I'll buy a ticket for adults.
Employee: Alright, alright. It's 140 yen.
Momoka: 140 yen... That's pretty cheap. Here, I'll pay for it with this.
Okay, you have 500 yen coin. 


(Beep-)

Employee: Here is your change and the ticket. Be careful not to lose it.
Momoka: Yes, I'll keep it safe. Thank you. Fufufu! I bought the ticket! Fufufu. See? I can do it by myself.

(Boo Boo-)


Momoka: Eh, why!? ...Because I put him on the hot seat? But, he treated me like a kid...

(Boo Boo Boo Boo-)


Momoka: He did devote his time to me...


(clink)


Momoka: Oh, the change is 430 yen. That's weird... The ticket was 140 yen... Ah! I need to give it back to him!


(Ding-dong Ding-dong)


Momoka: Excuse me! I'm sorry about earlier.


(Momoka returns the money and comes back)


Momoka: Sorry to make you wait. What is that look on your face? I apologize when I need to. Well... I think I wasn't acting maturely...


(Ding-dong Ding-dong)


MomokaWhy are you smiling? Let's just go! Come on!

********************


Momoka: Fuha! What happened to the train? Is there a festival today? It was really crowded. I couldn't sit on the seat for the first time! ...What? That's just the way it is? I, I see! Of course I knew that! Now, shall we go to the shopping district?


********************


Momoka: So this is the shopping district. It looks lively and happy! Then let's start the shopping. I need to buy the ingredients for curried rice, right? First I will buy some meat. A butcher shop should be... Ah, it's over there! I'll be back in a minute.


(Momoka goes to the butcher shop)


Momoka: Excuse me. Can I buy some meat?
Storekeeper: Hello, welcome! Are you on an errand?
Momoka: Yes. I want to make the best curried rice. I'd like to have a delicious part of Matsuzaka cow.
Storekeeper: Ma, Matsuzaka cow? I, I think that's too luxurious?
Momoka: No, you can't make the best curried rice with cheap ingredients. Now, give me the best meat you have.
Storekeeper: Eh!? How much?
Momoka: Fufu, I don't need to save money now. Give me this whole block.
Storekeeper: Wait, Wait! That will be more than one hundred thousand yen!?
Momoka: I have no problem, don't I, producer san?


(Boo Boo Boo Boo-)


Momoka: ...Yes? The budget isn't big enough? What do you mean? This is for the best curried rice.


(Boo Boo Boo Boo-)

Momoka: Yes? Chihiro san will be mad? ...I don't know why but it feels like we should avoid that. Okay. Then give me this... chopped beef for curry.


(Ding-dong Ding-dong)


Momoka: But I still don't get it... Let's go to buy some rice.


********************


Momoka: Mr. shopkeeper of the rice mill, I'd like to buy the best Uonuma Koshihikari please!


(Boo Boo-)

********************


Momoka: Mr. shopkeeper of the vegetable shop, I'd like to buy the best organic vegetable please?


(Boo-)

********************


Momoka: Mr. shopkeeper of the fish shop, I'd like to buy the biggest spiny lobsters!


(Boo Boo Boo Boo-)


Momoka: What's wrong with you! You can't do this, you can't do that... You just keep saying NO!


(Boo-)


Momoka: I can't make the best curried rice like this! From now on, I'll do whatever I want. If you'll excuse me~


(Boo Boo Boo Boo-)


********************


Momoka: Haa... Haa... I just wanted to make him delicious curried rice... Producer san knows nothing about ladies. ...Oh gosh, the sun was sunk. I just rushed out thoughtlessly... Where am I? P, Producer san!? ...Ah, right! I should call him! Wait, producer san has my bag... T, This is perplexing. I haven't been here before... But I have to do something... I'd better move!


(Momoka walks)


Momoka: Is this... a park? It's pretty big. Haa... my legs hurt... I need to rest on the bench. Well... what now...? What if I never meet him? I, I must not... cry...! Hnn...


(A boy is crying)


Momoka: Oh, why is he crying? ...Look, what's wrong? Are you lost?
Boy: Mom~! Waaa!
Momoka: Please don't cry. There, there.

(The boy keeps crying)

Momoka: Crying won't help you!
Boy: ...
Momoka: Fuh... Okay! I'll help you find your mother. Follow me.
Boy: Yes!
Momoka: But... where should I go...? Yeah! I think I had a map... Ah, here it is! I knew it! Eh... ah, there is a police station around here. I'm sure you can find your mother when we get there.
Boy: Okay!


********************


Momoka: How come... you lost your mother?
Boy: I... wanted to have ice cream but she didn't listen...
Momoka: Oh dear, so you had a tantrum. That's not nice. And you shouldn't eat ice cream at this time of day. You won't be able to have dinner.
Boy: Yes... Is that why she left me...?
Momoka: That's not true. Your mother must be looking for you desperately. Apologize to her when you meet her. Can you do that?
Boy: Yes...
Momoka: Fufu, that's a good boy. Alright, here we are.
Boy: Yeah!
Momoka: Maybe I'm not so different from him... I grumbled about things too...
Boy: What's wrong?
Momoka: It's nothing. I also... need to apologize to someone.
Boy: Hmm...
Momoka: I can see the police office.
Boy: Ah, there she is! Mom!


(Boy runs toward her)


Momoka: Ah, be careful not to fall!
Boy: Thank you so much! Good bye!
Momoka: Then it's my turn... to go to the police...


(Ding-dong Ding-dong)


Momoka: Eh? P, Producer san!? How did you...!? ...Hnn... You're late! Why didn't you come to pick me up sooner? But, I'm glad... you... you... (sniffling) I, I'm not crying! I could go home by myself!


(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

Momoka: Geez... Anyway, somehow you knew I would be here. ...What? My mike was on? Ah, so that's how you knew I was going to the police station. ...Ah... you mean... You heard everything I said...!?

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

Momoka: P, P, Please delete it! Right now!

(Boo Boo Boo-)

Momoka: How could you! And... you could have come to me earlier... Of, Of course I had no problem without you! Yes? I, I didn't cry! I said I didn't! ...What's that? You want me to read it? "Now the last petit corner! Cast a spell on an ordinary word to make it cute. Cinderella word and farewell..." Are you serious? Yes? There is no time!? W, What...!? Haa... I've been pushed around all day. Alright! Let's tie it up! Here it goes!

(Darara~)

Momoka: "sand lance". Now, shall we go back, producer san? I'll serve you the best curried rice!

Idol M@ster Cinderella Girls Mezase! Cinderella No.1! Tachibana Arisu


H, Hello! I'm Tachibana. I'm hoping your kind support. ...Yes. Is this a script? Hmm? I already got one. It's changed? It's so sudden. I need to get the newest script at least 3 days before the recording.

(rustling)

Special debut project, Mezase! Cinderella No.1! Today's theme is "Arisu in Wonderland" and I'll deliver my märchen talk to you... Wait, what is this!? This is not my gimmick!

(Boo Boo-)

...A, As I'm a pro, I'll do what is assigned, but I'm sure there are idols who are more suitable for this theme. Why me...? This is a total mismatch.

(Boo Boo-)

Haa... Okay... Then give me some time to read the script.

(Boo Boo Boo Boo -)

What? There is no time for that? This... This is ridiculous! Yes? The recording has started already? W, What... Come on! Treat me like a pro! Don't start it like that! Hgg...
Special debut project, Mezase! Cinderella No.1... This is a show where new idols try various things to increase their idol power. The host of "Mezase! Cinderella No.1" is me, Tachibana... Tachibana Arisu... Today's theme is... Must I do it?

(Boo -)

Haa... Today's theme is
"Arisu in Wonderland". I, Tachibana, will deliver my märchen talk to you.

(Boo Boo Boo Boo -)

Too stiff? That's who I am. I can't... make it cute.

(Boo -)

Alright... You want me to make the opening more cute, right? Here I go. T, Today's theme is
"Arisu in Wonderland". I, Tachibana, will deliver my märchen talk to you~ ...how was it?

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

It... It was cute? Haa... I don't understand adults. Can't believe they like this... Then I'll introduce myself this time. I'm Tachibana Arisu. I'm 12 years old and in 6th grade in elementary school. My blood type is A and my hobby is reading books. I often read mystery novels. And...

(Boo Boo-)

Eh? ..."Too stiff. Introduce yourself with a
märchen image..." Look, I don't think my introduction needs märchen things. ...there is a sample in the script so follow it...? Haa...

(rustling)

Hey... Do I really need to do this?

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

Okay... Here goes nothing. I'm Arisu. Tachibana Arisu. I'm 12 years old. My favorite food is strawberry shortcake and strawberry
parfait. Arisu is so~ nervous, but she'll do her best. Please root for her~

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

I, I told you. This is not my gimmick... It, It wasn't cute at all! This introduction script is... a lie.

(Boo Boo-)

What? It's not a lie? Well... that's sort of true. I don't hate strawberries and don't feel... I do feel nervous. No, that's not what meant, I was talking about the tone! Anyway, I'll try my best till the end. Then, well... Everyone who is listening to this show, please listen to it to the end.

(Boo Boo-)

Haa... Make it cute... right? Everyone, please listen to it to the end!

********************

Please Listen to my memory.
Märchen memory talk! This is a corner where I happily talk about my märchen-like memory. Well, could you change the title of the corner? It's embarrassing... And, aren't you ashamed to make me do this?

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

Is that so... Haa...
märchen-like memory... I don't have a memory like that.

(Boo Boo-)

Hmm...
märchen... let me think... It's like a fairy tale, isn't it? Well... Ah, I have one. When I was young, my parents took me to a musical once. The story was like a dream. The protagonist overcame a difficult situation with power of songs and everyone's cheer. Well... I hardly cry or smile, so there were things that didn't go well. But while I watched the musical, well... for the first time, I was moved to tears. My parents saw me and smiled. Fufu. That's how it started. I started to believe that music has power and I wanted to make music that can touch people's hearts. I will be happy if there is a person who listens to my song and feels something. Ah! W, Wait. It wasn't märchen-like at all. I guess I've failed.

(Diriring~)

Thank god! N, No. I don't like this
märchen corner itself! But... well, okay. Let's move on to the next corner. This was märchen memory talk.

********************

Welcome to the world of fairy tales!
Märchen situation! In this corner, I will express myself with a cute voice in a märchen-like situation. Cute...? Haa... Alright. This is the situation.

(sound effect)

"You're pretty princess Arisu from a fairy tale. Invite your listeners to the magic tea time!" ...Haa? There are too many points I want to argue about! What is pretty princess Arisu? What is the magic tea time anyway?

(Boo Boo-)

Stop the nitpicking...? If you don't see any problem, you're the one with problems. But... building a fictional world is also my work, isn't it? Okay, I will.

(Diriring~)

Greetings, dear listeners. We are holding the magic tea time in our fairy tale land. Although it's small, I sincerely wish you will show up. Yours respectfully, p...pretty princess Arisu...

(Boo Boo Boo Boo -)

W, Why? I searched on the internet to see how people write an invitation card, so it must be perfect! ...Be cuter...? Is, Is that the only thing you can say!?

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

Ugh... Okay. Be cuter... right...? Here it goes. Hey listeners. This is pretty princess Arisu from a fairy tale land. I'd like to have a happy tea time with you, so... if you're free, please come join the party. I, I'll be waiting~ Hnn... I can't do it!

(Diriring~)

Eh? It was cute? I'm not cute, you know! I can't even show a childlike innocence...

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

What? That's why you liked it? S, Stop it. I don't understand the reason at all. Could you elaborate? ...It shows my character and that's cute? Well, what kind of character is that? Anyway... I'm glad you liked it. Fufu. Ah! B, But that doesn't mean I like
märchen!

********************

This is the ending. How was my...
märchen radio? Frankly, I still don't understand it. But if you enjoyed it, I would be happy. Well... I also felt... being cute is not as bad as I thought. Ah, wait! It's slightly... slightly better than bad. Now the last petit corner! "Cast a spell on an ordinary word to make it cute. Cinderella word" and farewell.

(sound effect)

"Tea spoon". I was your host, Tachibana Arisu. Bye bye~

********************

Haa... Thank you everyone. Wait, producer! What is wrong with you!? I know being cute is important to idols, but you were a little persistent... Yes?
You thought making me a bit angry could bring out my pure heart? Ah! Y, You don't need to apologize! I was the one who didn't understand your intention. W, Well... do you know the story, "Through the Looking-Glass"? It's the sequel of " Alice's Adventures in Wonderland". My parents used to tell me the story. In the tale, Alice holds a reverse printed book up to a mirror and goes on an adventure. The truth is sometimes reversed... Producer wanted to bring out my true nature by making me play the role of the opposite of me! That was so clever... ...Eh? What is this? My next schedule... I see. You're showing me my next schedule at this moment... Producer is really great!

(rustling)

Let's see... A new program. Starring Tachibana Arisu and Abe Nana. The title is... Welcome to the
märchen world. The mysterious mini concert of cute Arisu and Mimimin Usamin... W, Wait! What is this!? Y, You mean... All I did today was to prepare the concert!?

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

I should have known! I still can't appreciate you!... Next time... well... please make me want to see you again...

(Ding-dong Ding-dong)

Ehe.

Idol M@ster Cinderella Girls Mezase! Cinderella No.1! Kawashima Mizuki




Mizuki's opening talk~! Thank you for listening to Mizuki's debut radio show~ I'll do my best with maximum idol power!

(Boo Boo-)

Eh? I did it with all the strength I had in me... Hmm... Ah, maybe I should have done it with my sexy voice. I see. Then I'll try it again. Hmm~ Hi~ I'm Kawashima Mizuki. Uhng~ I'm going to mesmerize everyone with an adult's sexual appeal~

(Boo Boo-)

Eh? I can't do that too? Why don't you just tell me what's the problem...? Hmm... Hmm~ You mean, do it more naturally? Well~ I think being cute is what idols would do... Anyway, I've got the point. Alright, I'll try to make the show natural but also cute. Then let's do this! Start the show!

(Opening)

"Special debut project, Mezase! Cinderella No.1! I'm Kawashima Mizuki, your host of Mezase! Cinderella No.1 where new idols work hard to increase their idol power and become tomorrow's top idols!" Then let me introduce myself. I'm Kawashima Mizuki and from Osaka. My hobby is cleaning and doing laundry, so on my day off, I usually spend my time doing chores. Sounds like a domestic woman, right? My age is... a secret~

(Boo Boo-)

Eh~? Why is it Boo Boo? "Where is my naturalness?" Telling my age itself doesn't sound natural, you know.

(Boo Boo-)

But since I'm an idol, I must cherish the dream of fans... Ah, then... Hmm! I'm eternally 17 years old...

(Boo Boo Boo Boo -)

A, Alright already...! I'm 28 years old. Before I became an idol, I was in my hometown and had a career. The career was about "talking". So I'm used to emceeing and such. I have no problem with radio shows too. As I became an idol, I'll do my best in singing, dancing and whatever I do. I want to prove that age isn't important to start something. Fufu, root for me, okay? Well... I think my introduction is almost done. Shall we move on to the next corner then? Corner, start!

(BGM)

"Special training! Face yesterday's myself by Memory talk!" It's a corner where I talk about what happened yesterday, look back at myself then rediscover my charm. Do you want to know about my private life that much? Fufufu. I guess I have no choice~ I'll tell you for this once. Yesterday... was my day off and I did a big cleanup. Ah, yeah... I recently found an item that helps you do laundry and cleaning! Fufufu, guess what it is! It's baking soda! Do you know what baking soda is? It's sodium hydrogen carbonate. You'll be surprised when you use it. You can wipe stainless steel clean, remove dirty things in a drain and even prevent mold inside a washing machine! Since I used it for the first time, I can't start cleaning without it. Fufu~ Everyone should try it. Oh wait, the show turned into a life information show... I'd better act cute like an idol. Hmm, great. That will work. Then, retake! Hmm Hmm! Tada~! Mizuki's memory diary~ You know what? Yesterday, I made my home twinkle like a star~ I used a magic item, magic powder NaHCO3!! I'll share it to everyone, so please try it! Phuu~

(Boo Boo-)

Eh, no? Why~? It was cute! Why don't you be honest and praise me just once? I'm trying my best, you know?

(Boo-)

I don't get it... But next time, you'll be sorry for this. Prepare yourself. This was
Memory talk corner.

(BGM)

"Lesson! Increase your acting power! Ad-lib situation". In this corner, I challenge to acting which is an essential skill to idols by ad-libbing in a situation according to an assignment! This corner has finally come! Mmm, Mmm! This is so idol! This is where I confess my love, right? I know. Then, today's assignment is, this!

(Babam!)

"A surprise visit from the man of your dreams! Confess your love to him" Phew~ It's here! This is what I'm talking about! I've always wanted to do this! I'll show you! I'll show you idol Mizuki! Haa- Hoo- ... The man of my dreams... Yes, meeting with him should be romantic and dramatic. A girl was betrayed by her lover and set out on a trip of grief. Her destination is Mt. Rokko where she and her lover had climbed. Then she meets a man. Somehow he looks like her first love. They are both on lonely trips and decide to climb the mountain together. Ah, I can't stop it! And! By the time they get to a rope bridge, they meet a storm of love! I stagger and hold him tightly... then I'll say...

(Diriring~)

Ah!? Haa... I don't know why... but my heart is pounding... Maybe... I fell in love with you...!

(silence)

...G, Give me a reaction... How was it? W, Was it cute?

(Ding-dong)

Ah! I made it! It's a success! Hooray! I'm really, really happy! I succeeded, right? Yes? I did it! I'm so happy~ Let me do more things like this. Okay? Okay!? Mizuki is going to seduce you anytime!

(Boo Boo-)

Ah~ I can't hear you~ I can't hear anything right now~ Fufu. Then, the lesson was a huge success! This was Mizuki's ad-lib situation~

(ending)

This is the ending~ How was my first radio show as an idol? I think I showed my cute image so much. I can't let younger idols win, you know? I'll do my best from now on, so please root for me.
Then the last petit corner. "Cast a spell on an ordinary word to make it cute! Cinderella word" and farewell.

(SE)

"Towelket". This was Kawashima Mizuki. Bye, bye~

Idol M@ster Cinderella Girls Absolute NIne


Syuko: Are you all ready then? Thank you for your effort on the album recording! Cheers~
All: Cheers!
Shiki: Haa~ Finally I can take some rest from the CD recording...
Miku: Miku is totally exhausted nya...
Kaede: Oh my, Miku. Were you nervous?
Miku: It was more like... Syuko and Shiki and Yumi told me this was their first time recording group songs, so Miku thought she ought to lead them...
Yumi: Fufu, you're kind. Thanks.
Shiki: Thank you, thank you~
Syuko: Syuko was so nervous that she slept only 7 hours last night.
Miku: You slept enough!
Kaede: Fufufu, I can always count on you, Miku.
Miku: When Miku was told these members were going to record the album, she decided something nya. That this time, Miku would do her best!
Shiki: Anyway, good efforts~
Miku: Shiki, that's not a proper word to say right now... Anyway, what did you feel during the recording nya?
Shiki: Well~ I don't know, but I had fun. And it smelled like flowers!
Syuko: Shiki, is that your impression about the song?
Shiki: That's... not about the song, I guess. Can I just talk about the recording itself?
Yumi: Ah, maybe that's because...
Kaede: Something came across your mind, Yumi?
Yumi: Maybe the flower scent remained because I recorded the song there...
Kaede: I see~ The studio sent the flower scent.(Pun) That's great.
Shiki: Nyahaha, I get that!
Syuko: Waa~ That was my first time seeing Kaede san's pun in the flesh!
Kaede: Fufufu
Miku: How about you, Yumi?
Yumi: Hmm, I like the title "Flower bud". Any flowers throb with anticipation before blooming. What did you feel, Syuko?
Syuko: Me? Mmm~ I imagined the days after the CD release. Like... when I go back to my parent's home, the CD might be there and if someone plays it, it will be really embarrassing... How about you, Miku?
Miku: Miku tried her best to lead the unit nya! Although I'm not sure if I did it right...
Kaede: I think you were good enough.
Miku: Kaede san... Thank you! Then what did you feel, Kaede san?
Kaede: To me, I had many chances to sing in a unit. The members changed each time and each unit showed distinct characteristic. I think we expressed our own color too.
Syuko: Oh~ That was a textbook answer!
Kaede: And...
Miku: And?
Kaede: I was hoping that I could drink some alcohol in the after party... Ah, it's delicious~
Syuko&Miku: That's not textbook-ish at all!
Miku: By the way, that's alcohol!?
Yumi: Fufu, Kaede san ended the topic after all. Where is Producer san anyway?
Shiki: It was getting late, so we had to drink a toast first~
Syuko: Wait, wait. You were the one who insisted we should start the after party saying "I'm can't wait any longer".
Shiki: Was I? Ahahaha!
Miku: P chan has a meeting with the staffs. He will come when things are settled.
Kaede: Then this is the chance to start the thing.
Yumi: Kaede san, what do you mean?
Miku: Ah, the gift?
Kaede: Yes, I think this is the right time.
Syuko: A gift... You mean the thing you wanted us to bring for fun?
Miku: Yeah! Since we formed a unit, I thought it would be nice to have something memorable.
Syuko: Ah~ that's what it was. I thought you were planning a bingo game or something. I couldn't decide what to bring, so I asked my parents to send some flower cakes from their shop. And~ Here! Help yourself!

(Thud)

Shiki: Waa~ Thank yo.. Hmm? What is this half eaten Dorayaki thing?
Syuko: That's called Wakaayu. It looks like a sweetfish, huh?
Miku: F, Fish...?
Shiki: It's a fish? Then I'll give it to Miku nya~
Miku: Eh!? Why do you always call Miku in a situation like this!? That's too much!
Shiki: Nyahaha~
Kaede: Fufufu. It's an ordinary flower cake that looks like fish. So, don't worry.
Miku: Hgg... you're really... anyway, it's Miku's turn nya. Miku's gift is... Tada~ Headbands with cat ears nya!
Yumi: Cat ears are Miku's charm.
Miku: Yeah! Everyone can have one. Take it. Here!
Yumi: Thank you! I'll take calico cat.
Syuko: I like that yellow one~
Kaede: Oh my, this is cute.
Shiki: Nyaha~
Miku: Hah? My instinct says I shouldn't give it to Shiki nya... There will be no gift for a girl who bullies Miku!
Shiki: Ahang~ That's a shame...
Kaede: Then I'll give Shiki this.

(Tap)

Shiki: Kng Kng... Haa~ A sweet smell~ Is this... chocolate?
Kaede: Correct.
Yumi: I can't believe she found it out by sniffing...
Shiki: Then I'll take a bite~ Yum-yum... It's tasty~
Kaede: Here, have some chocolate everyone.
All: Thank you~
Syuko: Hmm? Is this... a whisky bonbon?
Kaede: Yes it is~
Miku: Kaede san, I think you're obsessed with alcohol...
Kaede: Alcohol is a privilege of adults, but in this way, you can also taste it. Come to think of it, I brought some alcohol as a gift, but since I'm the only person who can drink, these are all mine too.
Yumi: I, I see... Ah, I also thought food would be nice, but I didn't know your favorite food. So, I decided to bring what I would like!
Shiki: Which means... flowers?
Yumi: You've almost got it. Here, these are preserved flowers!
Miku: You prepared them for everyone! How wonderful nya!
Yumi: Dendrobium is for Syuko, lilac is for Shiki, Rhodanthe is for Miku, gladiolus is for Kaede san.
All: Oh~
Syuko: Are these our birth flowers?
Shiki: You did put some effort into it.
Yumi: Fufufu. You can enjoy beautiful flowers for long.
Kaede: That's great.
Yumi: I hope you like it. Then, you're next, Shiki.
Shiki: Fufufu... My gift is this tiny bottle from my cleavage.
Syuko: It really came out of her cleavage...
Shiki: Ehit! Yot! Yap! Pyong! One more!
Miku: Hmm? What's in it?
Shiki: Hnghhng~ That's perfume. It's Shiki's original special brand! It also has interesting effects!
Miku: Heh... You make your own perfume. How do you make it?
Shiki: Well... first you need "essence" which is the base of a scent. You extract it from various ingredients by compressing or distilling them. Then, you turn it into essential oil with ethanol. You also need to choose "note" which decides the duration of a scent and the type of an odor.
Syuko: Mhm.
Shiki: Lastly, you mix all of them to make the perfume smell good. It's easy, right?
Syuko: Heh... It requires a great deal of care.
Kaede: Can I wear it? Excuse me...

(chee)

Kaede: Mmm~ It smells really fresh and... I also feel Sake...?
Miku: Come on, that can't be alcohol...
Kaede: I mean it. Why don't you sniff it?
Miku: Hmm? Kaede san has a narrow arm... no, wait. Knk Knk. Haa~ I don't know if it's Sake or not, but I like the smell nya~ Nyanya~
Kaede: Fufu, It's like a silvervine for a cat.
Syuko: Heh~ They all have different scents...
Shiki: Yeah~ I tried to imitate the malted rice that is used to ferment Sake. Anyway, this chocolate is delicious~
Yumi: What is my perfume?

(chee)

Yumi: Haa... I smell various kinds of flowers... It's great!
Syuko: Heh~

(chee)

Syuko: Oh~ Mine smells spicy. But I think I'll get used to it.
Miku: What's Miku's...
Shiki: Mackerel.
Miku: What?
Shiki: It's mackerel.
Miku: Mackerel!? You mean the mackerel... in the sea?
Shiki: Yeah. It's a mackerel flavor perfume~
Miku: I... I don't need that kind of perfume nya!
Shiki: Nyahaha, I was joking, just joking.
Miku: I don't know what smell it is, but I'll do a test on someone like Riina to... I mean, make her check it!
Kaede: By the way, there are so many different odors.
Shiki: Yes, there are many. In fact, odors are organic compounds. You can't analyze them accurately without using gas coloring method.
Yumi: T, That sounds complicated...
Shiki: Anyway... Haa~ All these odors and whisky bonbon make me feel weird~ Hnhng~
Kaede: Now, now. Shiki, calm down. Pat Pat. Ufufu.
Miku: Hnk! I think Kaede san is getting tipsy nya...
Syuko: Ahaha. Are after parties always like this?
Yumi: I'm curious too... I haven't seen anyone having an after party before.
Miku: Last time, there was a fuss at a maid cafe.
Yumi: I heard there was a fuss at a festival too.
Syuko: Ah, I also heard that there was a fuss at a hot-spring hotel
Miku: Why do we always make a fuss nya!
Kaede: Fufufu. We also played "king game" once.
Shiki: A game? King game? What's that!? It sounds fun! I want to play it!
Kaede: Dear me! You really want to play it?
Miku: I haven't played king game nya. Have you?
Yumi: I haven't played it too.
Syuko: Syuko is too diligent to do that~
Miku: That's fishy...
Shiki: How do you play it? Let's do it! Hurry~ Hurry~
Kaede: We're going to choose a king by drawing lots, and the rest of us follow the king's order. I'll make the straws first.
Yumi: I'll help.
Miku: Hgg... This doesn't sound very good nya...
Shiki: Really? I like this feeling that something is going down~ If Shiki becomes a king, what will she do? Sniffing everyone? No, no. I'll just take their clothes that they're wearing... Fufufu...
Miku: Heek! I knew she is dangerous nya...
Kaede: There~ Finished. Straws have number 1 to 4 and king. So, if you're king, just give any order.
Yumi: Let's draw it.
Syuko: I'll take this!
Shiki: Shiki chooses this one~
Miku: Give me the king. Give me the king...
Kaede: All done? Then check your straws secretly. When I count to 2, say "Who is the king?". One, Two!
All: Who is the king!?
Syuko: It's me... Waa, what should I order?
Shiki: The king was Syuko~ I wish I was the king.
Miku: My king, what's your order!? Please make it easy and safe!
Syuko: Mmm~ easy...? Ah! Then how about number 1 Kabedong number 3 and say something sweet?
Yumi: Eh!? I'm number 3... Will I get Kabedong?
Shiki: What's Kabedong? Can I do it again, dong? (Kabedong: A man pushes a girl against a wall)
Miku: That's an ancient... Anyway, no! But who's number 1...?
Kaede: Number 1, Takagaki Kaede, she is ready to go! Hng hng hng~
Miku: Ah... She is even humming nya...
Yumi: W, Well... This is my first time, so...
Kaede: Yumi.

(thud)

Yumi: S, She is close...! And Kaede san smells... sweet...
Kaede: Yumi, a closer look makes your face much cuter. Could you let me appreciate your flower-like face tonight?
Yumi: W, Well... Please be gentle...! Haa~
Syuko: Ah, she fell for it...
Shiki: Kya~ oh my god~

(Shiki punches Miku)

Miku: Ouch! Shiki, stop punching me! Wait, is it safe? Yes? Is it still healthy!?
Kaede: Ahaha! King game is fun! Besides, I feel hot because of the alcohol I drank.
Syuko: Kaede san... is drunk... Wait, I feel a little hot too.
Shiki: Hng hng~ Of course you do. Since everyone wore the perfume I made.
Miku: Eh!? You mean the perfume is..!?
Shiki: It opens bronchial tubes, increases metabolism and blunts sense organs! I manipulated the effect of benzodiazepine... which means, you will feel so~ awesome!
Yumi: Is that why I feel hot and dizzy...?
Miku: Are you sure it's okay?
Shiki: It's okay, it's okay. They are totally legal. I told you they had interesting effects. Now, let's choose the next king! Draw lots!
Yumi: I'm out... Haa...
Miku: I can't let them make another victim nya! Come on, king! One, Two~
All: Who is the king!
Kaede: Ufufufu, hello, I'm the king.
Syuko: Oh, I sense something big!
Miku: Kaede san, what's your order?
Kaede: Then... how about number 2 serves number 4 with her heart.
Syuko: Ah, I'm number 4. Who's going to serve me?
Shiki: Hng Hng~ It's my turn at last. Finally! Number 2, Ichinose Shiki is going to give Syuko a massage with her heart~
Kaede: Fufufu, Shiki, finish her!
Shiki: Syuko, I'll massage your neck with aroma oil~
Syuko: Eh... massage? Wait, my neck is...
Shiki: Now, now. I know the structure of a human body well. Then, excuse me~ Nyahahaha~
Syuko: Heek!? Ah...ahaha, hahahaha! N, No... Don't tickle my... neck~ Stop~ Ahaha!
Shiki: Well, do you feel better?
Miku: Ah..ah~ This is going to be really bad...
Kaede: Ufufu~ Massage is so good. I sometimes follow Kawashima san to get a massage.
Miku: Miku isn't sure... She can't tell what's right or wrong now!
Syuko: I... Fu... this is... too much...

(Syuko falls down)

Shiki: Haa~ Syuko, that was a good smell~ Then let's start the last game.
Kaede: We three are the last survivors.
Miku: Alright. I'm going to end it nya! One, Two!
All: Who is the king~
Miku: It's me! Miku is the king!
Kaede: My king, what's your order?
Miku: I decided it beforehand! Shiki feeds Kaede san alcohol as much as she can. Kaede san plasters her body with the perfume and let Shiki sniff it!
Kaede: Oh my~ You're giving me good service!
Shiki: Nyaha~
Shiki&Kaede: Well then...
Kaede: Cheers!
Shiki: Time to eat!
Kaede: (gulf gulf)... Fuhaa!
Shiki: Kng Kng... Sniff~ Sniff~
Shiki&Kaede: Haaa~
Miku: Then fall asleep! This is the king's order nya!
Shiki&Kaede: Alright~ Good night~ ZZZ
Miku: Phew... It, It's over... It's over nya... That was a long fight. Haa... I brought too many cat ears. I'd better put it on Shiki. There!
Shiki: Unya!? Hmnya... Slurp... That's a good smell... ZZZ
Yumi: I felt Doki Doki...
Syuko: It itches... ZZZ
Kaede: Ufufu... Haa... ZZZ
Miku: A, After parties shouldn't be... like this... By the way, why should Miku clean up the mess!? P chan, please hurry nya!
