The big day has come. Will Saya finally make her final decision?
On the day of the cultural festival, Saya finds a letter addressed to her. After trying to find out where it came from, her mother almost collapses from anemia. With that, this causes more anxieties for Saya on whether or not she should play in the band.
Meanwhile, the girls are at work to get the class’s café up and running. After a while, Kasumi, Rimi and Tae eventually go off exploring other classes to see what they are doing. Of course, Arisa is doing a stage performance for her class. I have to admit that her reactions to seeing Kasumi and her appearance was cute. Kasumi probably liked how Arisa looked in the outfit.
With that, Poppin’ Party’s first actual debut is about to happen after Natsu’s band finish performing. Sadly, Saya is still nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Saya listens to her messages on her phone. Apparently, the café was a success and that the lyrics for the song Kasumi, Rimi, Tae and Arisa wrote together is in the envelope. After opening the letter, Saya founds out that the lyrics sounds like a love letter to her. With some encouragement from her mother, she runs to the school so she can perform with her friends.
Once Saya arrived at the school auditorium, she runs into Natsu and her band members. She finally resolves things with her old band while borrowing the drum sticks. In short, Poppin’ Party’s last song’s performance was a success. Still, I have to admit that the animation looks strange because of the use of CG. I wish they animated their performance instead of using CG since it would look better.
With the band finally complete, it’s time for Kasumi’s band to audition at her favorite venue. The only problem is the owner plans to shut it down. While people will come up with conspiracy theories thinking the owner doesn’t want Kasumi’s band to perform there. Maybe it’s because of Kasumi’s cringe worthy performance of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” in an earlier episode? While I won’t jump to conclusions, I am curious why the owner wants to close up shop. ¶
