It’s the moment of truth. Will the Producer be able to pass this round?
From the looks of things, it seems that Project Krone managed to have a good performance. I expected that this will happen, although a part of me wanted it to fail so that Mishiro would look bad. Aside from that, it seems that everyone worked hard enough from the looks of it. Not to mention, the director at the company was actually impressed with Cinderella Project that he outright said that Mishiro is being stubborn. This makes you wonder whose method is right in the end.
On the other hand, it seems that things did not go quite as planned, at least for Project Krone since Fumika collapsed right before it was her unit’s turn to perform. Thankfully, the Cinderella Project girls were supportive to help advert the live performance from becoming a disaster by keeping the audience busy until Triad Primus was ready to perform. As expected, their performance was very successful, which made Uzuki somewhat uneasy for the future of her unit. I will focus more on that later.
In short, Mishiro should be grateful that the Producer’s project saved her butt from her project becoming a failure. Knowing her personality, she doesn’t give a crap about the girls saving her group. As expected, she continues to take the two girls from Cinderella Project and give nothing in return. In short, Mishiro is very ungrateful, but karma will catch up to her eventually. Even so, it’s a stark contrast of the idols being supportive of each other regardless of the department they came from. Of course, I don’t blame Rin or Anastasia since they decided to do this and they are free to change their mind if they don’t want to continue. I think the upcoming drama will make them reconsider.
From the last episode, it seems that Uzuki never shared her true feelings about Rin as she tries to along with her new unit with Miho. Now, it seems that things are simply not working out for her. Uzuki finally realized that working with Miho is simply not the same as working with Mio and Rin. In other words, she was against Rin’s decision from the start, but was afraid to spit it out.
With Rin and the Producer at the photo-shoot witnessing Uzuki finally snapping, it seems that the spell might have broken for her as she begins to stuffer in the new reality. Hopefully the girls will be supportive and help bring her back. From this, will Rin and Anastasia consider their participation in Project Krone with Uzuki going down a similar path as Haruka from the main series? We’ll find out soon enough.
Aside from that, Nitta Minami had the best performance. Makes me wonder why Suzaki Aya didn’t decide to have an artist debut yet since she has a pretty good voice. ¶
