Last time, Saint Snow failed to make it to the final round. As a result, Leah is upset about her defeat that she wants to quit being a school idol. However, with Ruby’s help, she convinces her to work on a song together. Now, we get to find out how that turns out.
From last time, Ruby and Leah decides to work together on a song to dedicated to their sisters. With that, the first-year girls decide to stay behind for a few days while everyone else go back. Of course, when Dia is on the plane, she already misses her little sister. It’s not surprising given the flashback during her childhood when Ruby fell in the grass. She praises and kisses her on the forehead while saying that Ruby is a strong girl. Dia wants her to show her courage. With that flashback, Ruby is able to present her plan with Leah to a committee for a Christmas invitational performance.
Still, I wonder how the first-year girls managed to stay there for many days. Wouldn’t staying out of school affect their education? Either way, after brainstorming, Leah and Ruby finishes the song. Still, it’s quite interesting how Leah decided to become a school idol with her older sister, Sarah. They came up with the same Saint Snow while they are outside snowing. It’s also name after the snow crystal her older sister found.
After Ruby and Leah presented their proposal and guest on talk radio, Leah runs into her classmates. I never thought she would actually talk to them. While she doesn’t hate them, the only reason she didn’t interact with them is because she is shy. When she shares what happened, the classmates complimented her and plan to attend the Christmas event. Leah cries shortly afterwards, but at least that is a good first step of becoming more open.
As for the rest of the episode, Ruby and Leah presents their invitations to their older sisters. Of course, the rest for the members of Aqours came too. With that, it’s nice to see Aqours and Saint Snow band together to perform a song.
Of course, Leah plans on continuing her goal of making it to Love Live, even with different members. It wouldn’t be possible without Ruby giving a reason for Leah to continue. Moreover, she also helped her to become more open and less reliant on her older sister to reach her goal. If Ruby never stepped in to help Leah, well, Leah would have probably given up and it would be disappointing.
