    「では三本立てでどうでしょう。希望者を募り、まず、一般的な知識と計算問題のペーパーテスト。次に私面接。最後はギルド長を選ぶ総選挙!」(MC)

    CDは買わんでよろし。(MC's thoughts)

    「これまでの慣例からすると……かなり厳しい。人が集まるかどうか……」 (Someone MC is giving advice to)

    They were discussing about selecting new adventures guild staffs, then this CD came out of nowhere. So what does CD stands for here? Also MC is a reincarnator from earth.

    I think it's a joke about how this plan sounds like Japanese promo event, in case of Idol groups and such they selling CD's on such meetings.
    So it's Compact Disk.

    I'm just saying it's not the case here. Nothing wrong with crossdressing characters in general.

    Huh? This is what you meant?

    This sounds quiet plausible:hmm:

    My japanese level is primitive, but I believe that は買わんでよろし means "You can buy my/me on", so Cross-Dresser really out of context here, lol.

    Yeah. Seems like it's basically a reference to AKB48, where you have to buy a CD to cast a vote.
