Now that Fruit Tart did their swimsuit photoshoot, their first CD is about to release. Also, it seems that someone is stalking Ino and Hayu on their way home.
I find it funny how in the beginning of the episode, the girls live life waking up on time, limited time in the bathroom, and eating donated food. Surely, they have a very tight budget, but it’s not as bad compared to what Youko must deal with. Of course, Ino had to deal with not having any toilet paper whatsoever. I guess if they ran out now, they will have a hard time finding them without paying a lot of money.
Also, I find it funny how Ino realizes that she is out of strawberries. Of course, Roko decides to use a red-hot chili pepper and of course, Hayu was crying. I guess it’s bound to happen since she overslept.
At last, Hoho finally finish the cover for their first single. Now, the girls must come up with autographs. I find Ino’s autograph funny as she leaves contact information. Obviously, she wants to lure her female fans so they can contact her. Yes, for a date obviously. It’s not too surprising given how much she is into girls.
Also, the other autographs from the other girls are interesting. Hemo’s kind of imitates Ino’s, Nina’s autograph is oddly small since she is into small things, and of course, Hayu’s is something. As for Roko, she is dramatized as she is reminded of the autographs she had to do during her childhood. Still, the road is rough for Fruit Tart since not only they are selling the CDs independently, their livelihoods hang on the balance. If it doesn’t sell well, they will be on the streets.
In the second half, it seems that Hemo and Tone is stalking Ino and Hayu. Yep, they are trying to learn more about Ino. Of course, Hemo and Tone saw seach other and they become instant rivals. Yep, Hayu and Ino notices, until Ino eventually tells Tone that Hemo is a new member of their group. She eventually wonders why they are following her. Yes, it seems very suspicious. Thankfully, Ino explained what led to Hemo joining.
Lastly, with Hemo not being confident about her singing, Tone suggests singing Karaoke. I am quite amazed how well Tone sing and danced. Of course, this causes Ino, Hayu, and Hemo to lose a bit of confidence. Still, it’s nice to see them try, although we didn’t get to see them how they performed. Ino did surprisingly well. Hemo did so-so, and Hayu, despite her passion for rock scored poorly.
While Tone helped them, it seems that they had minor improvements. Even so, with the suggestion of seeing Cream Anmitsu’s performance to learn from it, I think this is probably a good idea. After all, you have you learn how the enemy do things so you can beat them.
