After ChuChu became upset at everyone since RAISE A SUILEN dropped to second place. Masuki walked off as a result. When Paero try to comfort ChuChu, she lashed out of her. Now, Paero seems to have given up on the band.
It seems that RAISE A SUILEN is in turmoil. Not only Paero is gone, her band that ChuChu built is at risk of falling apart. Sure, Masuki and Rei haven’t quit the band, they are obviously frustrated. Of course, it doesn’t end there.
Still, it’s nice that Rokka seems worried about Masuki that she went to her school. Yep, there are lots of female students that look up to her and see her as an older sister. Thought that there will be lots of yuri. No, it’s just the usual Class S stuff. At this rate, Rokka and Masuki might make a good pairing.
Still, it’s funny to see their reaction when Rokka shows up and try to convince Masuki not to quit. The students, especially the teachers had confused looks on their face. Thankfully, Masuki didn’t intend to quit. She just need a breather from ChuChu’s temper tantrum last night. Who wouldn’t given how ChuChu blew up just like that?
Meanwhile, Tae notices something is up with Rei. She talked about what happened with ChuChu. Rei thinks that something is missing. From that, Tae mentions about singers are like stars. She hands a star candy that she can count on to shine like the beacon in the sky. Is this enough for Rei to keep the band together?
As for the performance, it seems that it didn’t went so well. After eating all that jerky, she gets ready for the performance without caring that Paero is missing. However, something is up as Kasumi and her friends wait to perform on stage and notices something. Paero was missing and RAISE A SUILEN’s performance seems a bit off. Not only that, the band members were not in the best mood either. This reflects in the results as Poppin’ Party received more votes than expected.
On the other hand, it seems that Paero is at a school reading the results of RAISE A SUILEN’s performance. She is glad that the band is doing fine as she feels that ChuChu doesn’t need her anymore. Meanwhile, everyone is trying to contact her and find her. Apparently, ChuChu doesn’t even know where she lives and leaves.
From the looks of it, it seems that ChuChu or rather, Chiyu seems depressed. Apparently, her mother calls her about her daughter’s birthday. She also shares about how her performance went. From this, we find out that Chiyu is not satisfied with the achievements and all the instruments she has. Despite not being great at playing all those instruments, she lives in the shadow of her mother’s talents. Not only that, her mother showers Chiyu with praise, even if it’s just flattery.
It’s understandable why she feels this way. She wants to make her mother proud by earning her achievements on her own by making her own music. Even if she can’t play music as good as her mother, she wants to do it another way. Hence, creating her own band.
I understand that Chiyu wants to make best band possible. However taking her band members for granted isn’t going to get her there. Even the best musician in a band realizes this. After all, she is in it together. Playing or managing a band is like a team sport, which requires teamwork and cooperation. Hopefully she will come to a realization that she can’t lash out or become unreasonable to her members.
In the end, we see Rei finally apologizing to Chiyu for being selfish. Now, she vow to protect the band. I guess she finally realized something from Tae that brings her the courage to do this. Chiyu finally admits that she said something bad to Paero. With that, Rei grabs Chiyu to help convince Paero to reconsider her decision. Can they bring her back? We have to wait and see.
