Yes, the moment we finally waiting for is finally here as Himeko becomes excited. Yes, Mashumairesh is finally seeing Criticrista in person.
You might be wondering, why didn’t I cover the 4th episode. Besides experiencing car troubles since stuff happens, it focused on boy bands. You can pretty much sum this episode up as this.
As expected, Dokonjofinger goes to Midi City to participate in the big festival so they can finally graduate high school. They look for work, and decide to take a job in the mines, which of course they saw ShingancrimsonZ. Besides the rivalry, a dark speaker monster attacks them and then a gold robotic monster, which they thought is treasure, but it’s not. They ended up arresting two thieves instead of extracting treasure for money.
Of course, that pales in comparison to this episode. Yep, Himeko becomes excited over Criticrista after hearing news on television that they are finally releasing a new song. Sure, she becomes embarrassed over sharing her love for Criticrista. This becomes very apparent when Ruhuyu brings up that Himeko is a Criticrista mega fan. Thankfully, Maple, who also manages Criticrista has tickets for them to watch them. Of course, REIJINGSIGNAL is also showing up at the TV show.
With that, it seems that Himeko is super excited as Howan hangs out in her room. It’s obvious that Himeko doesn’t just view herself as being merely a fan of them or viewing Criticrista as idols. She views them as something that she inspires to become. This is not too surprising since in real life, people focus on the idols’ personality and looks rather than their music or talent. Either way, after seeing Criticrista talk on a tv show on her smartphone, it’s obvious that Himeko can’t contain her excitement.
The next day, they finally arrived at the TV studio to watch their performance. As expected, Delmin had a bag of imitation crab and fish sausages she received for some reason. Of course, Ruhuyu thought it’s a better idea to see Criticrista first before heading to the viewing area. Himeko resists the idea until she gives into her excitement.
I find it funny how they find Criticrista’s changing room by chance. They saw the flower displays with Criticrista’s name on it. Of course, Ruhuyu couldn’t resist the urge of that vintage crab that she tried a piece out, which freaks out Howan, Delmin and Himeko. I guess Ruhuyu can’t resist the taste of crab, which would taste better with some Old Bay. Thankfully, Delmin had a bag of imitation crab, so they managed to hide Ruhuyu’s temptation. Still, it’s surprising that Criticrista didn’t notice what Ruhuyu did.
Of course, Criticrista entered the room while Mashumairesh hid in a locker. Of course, they eventually blew their cover. Thankfully, Criticrista are nice and realized that they are the band that are staying at their headquarters.
As expected, they took a group photo together and of course, Himeko gets some nice encouragement from Rosia. Yep, she addresses Himeko as older sister. It’s like Himeko’s dream is becoming true.
Eventually, Criticrista ran into REIJINGSIGNAL in the hallway. Yep, it seems that their rivalry is heating up as Rosia boasts about wanting to be like REIJINGSIGNAL. Of course, she probably knows a thing about their past and probably being sarcastic. Eventually, Delmin gifts the bag of imitation crab to Rararin. Of course, she reminds Mashumairesh how far they are to being able to perform on the big stage.
As expected, it seems that the MC of the show is out sick, so Rosia did the honors. We eventually see REIJINGSIGNAL and Criticrista perform. Himeko becomes amazed by their performance.
At the same time, she becomes sadden by how far her band is to perform on a big stage like Criticrista. In other words, Mashumairesh feels down and Cyan notices. She suggests then to seek help form a certain band. It’s obvious which band she is taking about. We’ll find out next time.
