In the course of this, she forges a daring plan: In each world, she wants to collect billion yen, which together add up to 80,000 coins, in order to strive for a peaceful retirement. Easier said than done – working in two different worlds has its pitfalls, but Mitsuha will no doubt soon find that out for herself.
