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.
