Sadly, becoming an Idol looks harder than it seems.
I don’t know, but I’m quite surprised on how the girls manage to fail an audition. I expected the committee to take them in based on their appearance and personality considering the commercialism of idols in East Asia. Surprisingly, it seems like they cared more about the talent. Sadly, this doesn’t bode well for Yuuka since she always talks about becoming an Idol, but don’t practice a day in her life. No wonder the girls ended up getting rejected. Despite this, I think there is another reason she done this and it relates to them staying together.
Throughout the whole series, we saw the happy memories from the girls. This range from bodies sticking together, switching bodies, having clones and becoming invisible. Yuuka planned on entering the audition in the hopes of staying together. It makes sense since Saki is already moving to Tokyo, so why not the others? On the other hand, the thing that intrigued me is the fact that Natsumi never wanted Saki to move away. Yes, she eventually accepts reality, but at the same time, she feels sad about it and doesn’t want summer to end. This is very understandable since having a best friend move far away makes it very difficult to communicate. Even with social networking and cell phones, it doesn’t have the same feeling of physical contact.
After all that drama with the girls losing the audition and Natsumi getting a fever, we are back to square one. It’s quite amazing how the wishing rock has no rules and manages to create a Groundhog Day loop. So, what we have now is an Endless Eight that only repeats one day while the girls retain their memories? It makes me wonder what they will make out of this and the conditions to break it. Maybe if they get chosen to become Idols, maybe that will stop it? Who knows, but that is a good guess. ¶
