A Live Show Event where you use Flowers, gained from normal Live Shows and daily Live Shows, to play in a special event Live Show and collect Event Pts to earn various Rewards.
Collect lots of Event Pts in a Live Show event.
Live Show events cost Flowers to play. These can be earned in normal Live Shows and daily Live Shows. (Live Show events do not consume LP.)
Total Event Pts are calculated from the number of Flowers collected and the bonus Event Pts collected when a Live Show event is successfully cleared. The Flowers paid to play the Live Show event will not be deducted from the overall Event Pt total.
Live Show events can be found by touching the "B-Sides" button in the upper-right corner of the Live Show selection screen. (Special daily Live Shows can also be selected from here.)
If an event finishes while a player is playing a Live Show, they will not gain Event Pts, so please keep this in mind. (EXP, G and Club Members are still rewarded.)
Kotori: (Summer vacation's coming to an end. It's the first long break we've had since μ's began. We spent the whole summer practicing like crazy.)
Kotori: (Every time we meet we remind ourselves it was to make the summer live show a success.) Kotori: (Any time we all have a spare moment, weekday or weekend, we get together.) Kotori: (We work on choreography, brainstorm ideas for the staging, and put together costumes or little things. It's been a huuuuge group effort!) Kotori: (It makes me want to give everyone a reward for all their tireless efforts.) Kotori: (Maybe I could sew a little matching handmade mascot dolls for everyone. Or throw a party and bake cakes and cookies?) Kotori: (All sorts of ideas float around in my head as I make my way to this morning's practice session.) Kotori: (Hmm? Hey, what's that poster on the bulletin board over there? Let's see... A swimsuit contest at the summer festival?)
Kotori: (Oh, it's a notice for the stage event that the shopping mall holds during the summer festival.)
Kotori: (So it's a swimsuit contest this year, huh? *Giggle*) Kotori: ("You, too, can be the heroine of the summer!" Gosh, that sounds like an old-fashioned idol talking!) Kotori: (And yet, as I'm laughing in my head, I keep staring at the poster. And suddenly I find myself thinking that this is really awesome!) Kotori: (They have nice prizes like big-screen TVs and day trips. Third place is a shopping voucher worth 500 bucks.) Kotori: (Wow, if we had 500 dollars...) Kotori: (Us blowing our budget on the summer show would no longer be an issue. I could buy whatever fabric I want and do twice the gatherings on the skirts!) Kotori: (I could even get the expensive stretch lace that I'd give up on and do a bi-color satin lining.) Kotori: (My head is swimming with images and my heart is pounding with excitement! All kinds of thoughts rush at me! I have to tell everyone else about this!)
Kotori: So Maki, didn't you tell me the other day that the μ's budget is really tight? Were you serious?
Maki: Dead serious. We have to be frugal since μ's doesn't get any money from the school. We're funded by our own allowances. To be blunt, we're always broke! Maki: Basically, we're dirt poor. In fact, our upcoming summer show has totally bankrupted us! Kotori: I was afraid of that. What does that mean for the next live event after this one? Maki: I guess we'll just have to abstain for a little. You know, until we can all pitch in enough to hold another show. Kotori: Fair enough, but what about when people get hungry from practicing? Little expenses like that add up. It's still going to be tough. Maki: True... But to do a live show we need equipment and posters and whatnot. It all costs money. We'll have to find things we can do for free, I guess. Kotori: That'd be such a shame with the way everyone works so hard. Maki: Kotori, remember what I told you last time, when you wanted to make higher quality costumes? Don't even think about paying for everything yourself. Kotori: Oh, I know. Eli's told me that this is still a school activity and that I'm forbidden from shouldering the costs alone. Maki: You're darn right you're forbidden! You already treat us to the most drinks and snacks, you handle cleanup, you repair and store the costumes... Maki: And you do it in silence without a single complaint. I don't think it's right. Kotori: I, umm... But there are so many other things I can't do that you and Eli do without breaking a sweat. Kotori: Plus I don't have to help with any family business like Honoka or Umi. I feel like it's the least I can do. Maki: I know, and that's one of my favorite qualities of yours. But remember, we're a group of nine, so don't do it all by yourself. Kotori: Hmm... Oh right, right! Maki, the reason I even brought this up is because I wanted your opinion.
Eli: A swimsuit contest? It'll take some work, but 500 dollars would be huge for us.
Honoka: And we could use the summer festival as free advertising for μ's! Eli: Yes. And I certainly like the idea of letting Kotori really flex her creative muscles without having to worry about fiscal constraints. Maki:So that means we're going to do it? Kotori: Oh, I j-just wanted to help the group! I-It's not like this being my hobby and all had anything to do with it, you know? Eli: *Giggle* All I have to do is watch you for a minute to see how passionate you are. Like the time you argued with Umi for over 2 centimeters' worth of skirt. Umi: I'm kinda afraid to see what Kotori would do if she were totally unconstrained. I can already picture how short the skirts would be. Nico: Yes! Yes yes yes! I'm in! I'll be the first to volunteer to enter! Nozomi: Hmm, can we really win with you though? Your appeal is a bit too, err... niche? Nico: It-it is not! Nozomi, someone as busty as you would be too intimidating. Right, Eli? Eli: Was that a veiled shot at me as well? Nico: I-I'm sorry, I didn't mean to suggest... Maki: Well I'M certainly not entering! Umi: Me neither. Hanayo: I definitely can't pull off a bikini. I've got the body of a little girl. Nozomi: That leaves Honoka, Rin, and Kotori. Maki: Which basically answers the question for us. Eli: Right. Kotori: H-Huh? HUUUUUUUH?! MEEEEEE?!
Nico: I told you. Didn't I tell you? Entering Kotori was a strategic blunder. If I'd been the μ's representative, things never would've turned out like this.
Kotori: I'm so sorry, everyone. This is all my fault. Maki: You've got nothing to apologize for, Kotori. Honoka: For goodness sake, Kotori, regardless of anything else you came in first place! That's just incredible! Umi: Swimsuit contests aren't exactly easy to win. You should be proud of yourself, Kotori. Rin: Yeah! You were totally the cutest girl on stage. Plus I'm psyched about the grand prize, even if it's not exactly what I expected. Nico: Not as psyched as Hanayo. She hasn't let go of the brand-new electric rice cooker grand prize! Hanayo: Yes. It really is the best! I can use this every single day to cook the most delicious rice you can imagine! Maki: Who knew the grand prize was a rice cooker? I guess it makes sense though. Some of the top-end models go for over 1,000 dollars nowadays. Rin: I don't wanna eat rice balls every day. Let's at least have ramen once in a while! Kotori: Oh, Rin! Kotori: (Everyone had a good laugh over Rin's moaning as the day of the swimsuit contest came to an end.) Kotori: (It certainly wasn't a normal day for μ's, but at the same time it didn't feel the least bit out of the ordinary.) Kotori: (Summer vacation will end soon, and the season for Hanayo's extra yummy white rice is right around the corner.)
