After Uori’s dramatic decision wanting to quit Ongaku Shoujo, the girls probably have her reconsider. While doing a promotion at an amusement park, Uori still feels down.
It’s obvious that Uori has issues that caused her to lose interest in Ongaku Shoujo. Not only she is helpless since she lost her singing voice, she is no longer in the center. After she got off the ride and fans on Ongaku Shoujo surround them, a fan wanted to take a picture of Uori with her. She is not in the mood. The producer comes to split up the crowd.
The girls eventually notice that Uori is missing. Apparently, Uori went off to a Farris Wheel for self-reflection. While the girls decide to search for her, Uori stared at the blue sky and read text messages. She notices that Dolly knows a lot about Ongaku Shoujo. When she reads a message if she is okay, Uori started crying. She sends a message to her saying she feels like disappearing. Hanako eventually calls Chorigana. She wouldn’t believe who it is.
If you recall in the earlier episodes, Hanako as Dolly talk to Chorigana over text messaging quite a lot. Given the suggestions and Uori sending messages while her older sister is away making it somewhat obvious. Hanako doesn’t know that Chorigana is actually Uori until now. This must have shocked both Hanako and Uori, but it doesn’t come at a surprise.
After hearing her voice, Hanako eventually realizes that Chorigana is Uori. She runs to the Farris Wheel to ride with Uori and lands on her. Hanako won’t let go since she is afraid that Uori will disappear. Hanako reveals that she is Dolly and becomes shocked that Uori is Chorigana. This makes Hanako happy. She eventually shares how she feels about Uori sending the messages showing her love for Ongaku Shoujo. They eventually saw out of the window that the members of Ongaku Shoujo are looking for them.
Eventually, Hanako reveals to Uori that Kiri is working hard to become stronger so she won’t become a hindrance and become able to keep up with Uori. After realizing this, Uori becomes upset. Uori realized that she let her older sister down and didn’t thank her members for helping her when she couldn’t sing. Because of how she treated everyone, Uori believes that she doesn’t deserve to be a Ongaku Shoujo.
It’s understandable why she doubts herself and she is not alone. At one point of one’s life, everyone experiences this feeling this feeling. It can range from a relationship not working out, losing a match, or not being selected for a job. This doesn’t mean that he or she should give up because of a setback. They simply need to pick themselves up by the bootstraps and keep on going. Someday, that day will come and you will be glad that you didn’t give up.
Sure, Uori is shocked that she doesn’t have to help Kiri anymore. In a way, this causes her to lose the drive to become better as her leadership position of being the center of the group diminish. Seeing Uori give up on her idol career will just be wasteful. If she gives up now, she won’t be able to live up her dreams of making Ongaku Shoujo a successful group and become the ultimate idol.
To cheer Uori up, Hanako decides to start singing Uori’s song. Eventually, Uori started singing with her, which cheers her up. Either way, it appears that Uori is back to her old self after Hanako says the catchphrase Uori usually says. Hanako reassure her that Uori can still be in the center and be a Ongaku Shoujo.
In other words, Hanako gives Uori the push she needs to continue. With that, it’s nice to see that Hanako and Uori is now closer to each other than ever. Hopefully, Uori won’t be as tsundere towards Hanako compared to when the series started. With that out of the way, hopefully their performance at the Melo Fest will be a success next time.
