It seems that the Jougasaki sisters have some soul-searching to do as Bain Capital’s Executive Director Mishiro goes on with her potentially destructive plans.
Yep, Mishiro is at it again like a true vulture capitalist as she continues to wreak havoc and want to do things her way despite the agency being only a few years old. She is simply not giving the various departments a chance to grow gradually and become successful in their own way. To me, her way of doing things reminds me of vulture capitalists as she wants success now and if things don’t work out, she will kick them to the curb.
In other words, Mishiro are treating the girls as investments rather than idols. I have a feeling that it won’t end well for her in the end, especially since the various departments behind the scenes are secretly revolting against her. Still, I wouldn’t be surprised if her plan ultimately fails badly and she is the one that ends up losing her job. After all, I have a feeling that she is the one that doesn’t understand what is the true meaning of being an idol.
As for the girls who are suffering this time from her wrath, it seems that the Jougasaki sisters are having trouble, especially Mika of all people. It seems that her department forced her to give up her Gal image for a more mature one look. Meanwhile, some male students bullied Rika during class for being a little child because they thought the show was for little children. As expected, Rika felt disappointed after telling them off and seeing that her fellow peers will be wearing kindergarten uniforms for the variety show they are participating in. She fears that if her classmates see her in that outfit, she will get teased even more. Of course she doesn’t want that since she want to be more like her sister.
Yep, it seems that things are not going their way, aside from Mishiro messing with their dreams. Sure, even if they are forced to wear a certain outfit, they are still themselves. Anzu out of all people gives some wise advise for once. She stated that you are still you no matter what clothes you wear. Like Kirari said, you just need to change it around to suit your own style. As expected, Rika did just that and now, she is full of energy. Mika also follow suit afterwards with success. Another way to say this, you need to make the best of a bad situation. Who knows, it might turn out to become better than expected.
Overall, while it’s sad to see the Jougasaki sisters look depressed, at least they managed to turn things around in the end. Still, there were some nice moments, especially when Mika took Miria around to have some fun. It seems that Mika wanted to have her as a little sister rather than Rika at one point. Even so, I have a feeling that Miria have matured a bit, especially since she will become the older sister in her family in the near future.
