From The iDOLM@STER: SideM Unofficial English Wiki
Makio-kun, Saki-chan, and Beit’s musical live themed after the fairy tale “The Frog Prince,” opens up! The elegant performances of the four princes and princess are a must-see!
Café Parade’s Makio Uzuki and Saki Mizushima, as well as the unit Beit, have been set to appear in a musical-styled live performance based off of “The Frog Prince.”
Beit deepens their understanding of the fairy-tale that it’s based on, through reading the picture book.
On the other hand, Makio has become enthusiastic about the details of the live. Because of that, Saki tells him about a newly-opened general shop that deals with frog goods. At Makio’s surprise a place like that exists, Saki invites Beit to join them and come along.
In order to help the princess, acted out by Saki, Makio and Beit have risen up to the challenge to act out the frog princes!
With the five singing voices that resonate upon an illusory stage, let’s make it a live to charm the audience!

The job this time is a musical-styled live. It looks like its motif is based on the fairy tale “The Frog Prince.”
Huh, frog prince? It might just be totally suited for Pierre, who’s always got Kaerre with him.
You’re right. Of course, Pierre looks just like a prince with Kaerre and after putting on a cape.
But what kind of story was it about…? Kyoji, do you remember?
No, honestly, I don’t remember a thing. I don’t even remember the last time I read it way back when…
I, know that fairy tale! You two, I can teach!
What is it, Producer? …Ooh! You have picture book, use as materials, really?
Yahoo~! So I, read to you two! I want! Okay?
Oh, then please do. If there’s any kanji you can’t read, make sure to ask away.
Thank you! So, I start! …”Long, long ago, in a certain kingdom~…”
“The Frog Prince,” huh? If I recall correctly, it’s about a prince who had a curse casted on him and then became a frog…
And the story is about him receiving a kiss from a princess to return to his human self.
And I’m the one who’ll be acting as that princess! The outfit design this time is also papi-ing cute!
I’m looking forward to seeing what kinda stage it’ll be~♪
Judging from what I saw in the materials, it’ll be a story that added a fair amount of arrangements to the original work.
Hm, hm… The scene where the curse gets broken on the four princes, Beit and me, is the highlight scene of the musical.
I’ll do my best as the frog prince role so that I won’t lose to you, Saki-chan!
Yep, yep! Let’s both do our best to make it a lovely live~! …Ah, I just remembered.
Speaking of frogs. There’s a general store that’s opened recently, and its specialty is in frog goods, apparently~♪
I’m a little interested in it. Wanna check it out after inviting the guys from Beit?
Sure, of course! I’ll go ask Pierre-kun and the other two, then.
Yahoo~! This shop, amazing! So many, froggies! Kaerre, and me, all so excited!
…Wow! Look! Kyoji, Minori! Found matching plushie!
This little one, holding flower, looks like umbrella! Minori, looks like you! Right?
And this one, like Kyoji! Eyes and… atmo… sphere? Or something, looks like, I think!
You’re right. Fufu, your sleuthing skills are spot-on. Thanks for telling us.
Huh, so this is what my atmosphere’s like…
Since we’re here already, we have to find a frog that looks like Pierre. The three of us make up Beit, after all.
Whoo~! I want to find a froggie, just like me! I, do my best to look for it!
A frog that looks like Pierre, huh? The impression I get from Kaerre is just way too strong, so will we even be able to find one…?
Fufu, we have so many goods in front of us here. I’m sure we’ll be able to find it.
This is amazing. Wherever I look, it’s just frogs, frogs, everywhere. I feel like I’ve seen enough frogs to last a lifetime.
Roll! Check out this cushion! Don’t you think it’s, like, super papi-cute?
Oh, that’s right, Producer. It looks like filming here is OK, so could we take one together?
Here, pose ♪
(Saki takes a photo of them together)
…Yep, yep, we got a cute shot! Thanks a ton, Producer~!
Next, your turn, Roll! Here’s a froggie! Hold this and I want you to try making a cooly-cute pose ♪
Huh!? Uhh— Cooly-cute… I-Is this it?
I’m a little embarrassed, getting my picture taken all of a sudden… But did I get it taken well?
It was perfect, totes! Awesome as always, Roll! You did it ♪
It looks like there’s a corner over there exclusively for photoshoots. Roll, Producer! Let’s papi-it away and go, go~!
Haha! Saki-chan sure looks like he’s having fun. Let’s go too, Producer!
One, two, three, four~… Five, six, ribbit, ribbit~♪
…All right. Since we’re checked over the choreo for this live so much already, I think we’ll be fine.
But… the background for this stage sure is high-quality. It’s just like a real-life castle.
I sorta remember the time we did the filming for that overseas castle.
At that time, you and Pierre looked just like real princes. It was amazing…
It’s still seared into my eyes so distinctly. Haah… It really was… just the best…
Haha… Thank you a lot. I wasn’t a prince, but a groom instead, though.
Had written on the fan letters, we got! Me from that commercial, was cool! They said they liked me!
This time’s live, we, transform into human princes, from frogs.
Become cool prince. We make audiences’ hearts skip a beat! Beit, hip, hip, hooray~!
“Dear princess, thank you for accompanying us for our dance.
And… thank you for breaking our curse for us!”
“No, that… I was just thanking you for returning my golden ball back to me.
I just wanted to convey my feelings of gratitude to you, by thanking you. Why…”
“Feelings of gratitude… I see. I’m sure that was what we needed.
The four of us are actually princes of a certain kingdom… We were initially terribly arrogant.
Because of that, we incurred the wrath of the goddess and were turned into frogs.
The reason our curse was lifted was surely because your sincerity touched us.
Today is an incredibly auspicious day…
If it may be fine with you, could you dance one more song with us?”
(The performance where the curse gets broken went well! It looks like they got really excited over it!)
(Starting here, we, the princes, will excite them even more and more!)
“Hey. If it’s okay with you, would you like us to introduce you to our kingdom?”
“We want to properly thank you for lifting our curse for us.”
“I’m extremely grateful for your invitation…
But I’m the princess of this kingdom. I can’t do something so selfish.”
“If that’s the case, how about we become friends first?
If we’re friends, it’s a given that we’ll come to each others’ houses to come and play. Right?”
“That’s a fine idea. I would also be greatly pleased if I could become your friend…
—Wait, I’m asking too many things of you, even though I should be in debt to you… But would it be okay?”
“Fufu… I guess so. The dance was fun, and I still want to spend more time with you all.
Everyone, please become my friends!”
“Yay! Everyone watching over us too! Come here, to our kingdom!
Everyone here! Become our friends, too!”
Roll, good work with the live!
You too, Saki-chan. Your dance posture with the kiss was done incredibly well.
I worked SUPER hard so that I could make it look like a real kiss~♪
Roll, you too. You really suited being in that prince role! The squees from the audience were amazing, too!
In Asselin-san’s words, it’s because I’m the prince of the kingdom of pastries… Isn’t that right!
Oh, yeah, I’m planning to stop by Café Parade to deliver a flower arrangement.
What’ll you do, Roll? Producer?
I’ll follow along. I bought frog souvenirs for the three of them, anyway.
…You’re going to come with us, Producer? Haha, I’m glad to hear that.
I’m sure everyone will be happy. Let’s hurry up and change and head right on over!
