The big day is finally here. However, Ino and her friends didn’t expect to do something before their performance.
As expected, there is always a catch to allowing Fruit Tart to perform near where Cream Anmitsu. It becomes obvious that Hoho is not in the best position. Still, it’s at least they have a chance to kickstart her idol unit. Either way, they must hold signs to lead the audience to stand on the line.
At last, we finally see the person we are anticipating. Yes, it’s Hoho’s rival, Riri. It’s obvious that Hoho have a vendetta against Riri. It’s mostly because Riri always come in first when she gets involved with Hoho. Apparently, Riri is a producer at Cat Production and she manages a very popular idol group, Cream Anmitsu. On the other hand, Hoho is stuck at a manager position. I have to admit that this is quite fitting. The funny thing is that Riri has a crush on Hoho for some reason. Is this turning out as a foe yuri pairing just like we saw with Teru and Serina in Sansha Sanyou? Maybe.
With Riri, there is the potential fifth member. Her name is Hemo. Yes, she has hearts in her yes, which makes it obvious where it’s going, right? She apparently made it in first place in recent auditions, which is quite impressive. She is also a third-year junior high school student. Sadly, for Roko, Hemo is still a little taller than her. She is holding a cute hamster plushie which Ino notices. Of course, Hemo develops a crush on her that she becomes flustered and ran away. Ino doesn’t know why.
While dressing up and preparing for the performance, it’s obvious that we didn’t expect swimsuits. While they decide to wear pants, it’s obvious that Hoho is not having it. She forcefully takes off her pants and accidentally took off her skirt too. Yes, Roko is trying to run away from her until she ran into her sister. As expected, her little sister, Chiko looks more like an older sister. She wants to treat Roko as a little sister, which can explain why Roko doesn’t get along with her. Still, it’s funny how she likes Fruit Tart’s variety show mostly because her little sister is in it.
After helping Cream Anmitsu, it’s Fruit Tart’s turn to perform on stage in a parking lot. Of course, Ino needs to go to the bathroom. After coming out, Hemo came out. It’s obvious that she looks up to her and wants to support her since she too wants to become an idol. The way she blushes, it’s obvious that she has a crush on Ino. Of course, she joins in the next episode, more on that later. Still, the way she promises Hemo to give a good performance makes this sound like a love confession of some sort.
Either way, Fruit Tart’s first performance went very well. Either way, it’s obvious what Hoho has planned next time. Yep, gravure photos of Fruit Tart girls wearing swimsuits. Not only that, Hemo will join the group as well. Either way, the next episode should be exciting.
