The focus is back on Haruna’s team as Shiho feels uneasy about something. What is it?
Believe it or not, Bloom Ball’s recording is already at its half-way point with Episode 6’s recording done. Sure, Honoka is disappointed that she didn’t say any lines as her character went shopping for the week. I find Shiho’s sly remark that Ayame will be gone next week too is quite funny. We do find out that the “Team Sky-Blue” will be going to an amusement park for a team building exercise.
Of course, Shino and Honoka had fun with the more experienced voice actresses on their team. They are waiting for Koto to arrive. Even during that, Shiho seems worried about the direction of her performance as her character, Amagi.
Shiho eventually breaks from the group to practice alone. It’s obvious that Shiho is a perfectionist. That is until Koto finds her. From hearing Koto’s voice, she sounds awfully familiar to the other characters from other anime. That is when she saw the book in Shiho’s bag. Of course, she has all the books for all the roles she has. She eventually tested Shino and it seems that Shiho’s performance is okay.
Even so, Shiho is worried about redoing a line as she is never asked to. After all, she says pretty much the same thing, which makes it seem natural for the character she voices. Even after spending a day at the park, Shiho reveals about that time that she is laughed at for having that voice. Sure, she gotten used to it, but it’s obvious that she wants to do something more with her voice. It’s obvious that Honoka notices that, which becomes important during the recording.
The next day, it seems that the Keiko’s editor shared an announcement. Yes, something that they want to tell Maika and Haruna. Yes, Keiko decides to make a spinoff manga for Tsubaki as the main character. It’s thanks to that recording of that scene that Haruna and Maika voiced. She came up with the idea for it as Tsubaki is also a popular character. I guess there is something Haruna can become proud of, even if she didn’t get a named role. Either way, Maika and Haruna seems happy by the news.
During the recording, Shiho decides to say her last line differently, which everyone suddenly notices. Eventually, the sound director points this issue out, which gets Shiho uneasy as he questions her. Thankfully, everyone on her team has her back and Shiho eventually gains the courage to explain herself.
While the director comes off cold, he shows an easy side of himself after seeing the accessories the girls wore. Yes, he noticed that they went to an amusement park. He eventually explains that her performance breaks her character too much at this stage and suggests an alternative.
At the end of the day, this shows that while Shiho while has natural talent for the type of character she voices, there are some things that she needs to improve on. After all, she is still starting out. She will get better and become able to show her greatness. Like anyone who is new at their job, it’s okay to ask questions and make sure you are doing something right of making a big mistake later and receive the blame for it. Aside from that, it seems that the focus is on the Project Vogel team next time as their preview video went live.

Shiho’s dilemma somewhat reminded me of Rina’s from Nijigaku.
Thanks to the support of her group she found a way to better improvise and improve.
Not too surprising, but I do hope that she will find her comfort zone and improve her skills. Still, it’s good that others are supportive of her.
