After Kotoko kind of went overboard with her measures to save Ongaku Shoujo, they push on. However, Kiri seems to have trouble with some of the idol challenges.
This time, Sasame, Miku, Shupe, Kotoko, Roro and Kiri are participating in one of those idol challenge shows. This reminds me of that cooking competition TV show from The Idolmasteror that idol competition show from Cinderella Girls. The same idea applies for Ongaku Shoujoas they try to win one challenge to make a mark. Of course, that seems harder than it looks.
From the looks of it, it seems that the girls can’t beat one challenge. They come very close to doing so, but falling short at the very end. Still, I have to feel it for Kiri given her delicate health.
Thankfully, Roro is here to keep her going. Believe it or not, both Kiri and Roro become the MVPs that pulled Ongaku Shoujo a win for the final challenge. While Kiri freezes up and eventually advances slowly, Roro manages to cross the finish line without the announcer noticing. I have to admit that this is clever. Either way, it’s nice for Kiri to pull through without relying solely on her younger sister. She should be proud for achieving this.
With everyone else from Ongaku Shoujo finally arriving, it’s time for their performance. However, something is off with Uori. She seems upset when Kiri got all the spotlight after she threw the drink she offered. It’s understandable to see how she feels since she couldn’t help her older sister.
There is another problem. Uori suddenly loses her voice. If you recall in the seventh episode, she started having these issues. Now, it became a reality in the worst time possible. Thankfully, they managed to pull through even though she didn’t sing. Of course, passersby saying that the performance was more interesting without Uori singing. Obviously, she doesn’t take it well. I wonder if she will recover before the festival happens. We have to wait and see. ¶
