As Rie, Mei, Rinne, and Satori is about to begin their recording for Bloom Ball soon, Misaki is about to announce a surprise. Yes. The one that Yuuki, Chisa, Airi, and Yuzuha is so anxious about. Also, there is something that causes Satori to act strangely.
You might be wondering, what is the countdown that Yuuki, Chisa, Airi, and Yuzuha was so worried about? The possibility of Project Vogel getting disbanded. Yep, their fears have become true as despite Project Vogel’s success, it’s coming to an end.
As expected, the Project Vogel become disheartened, but Misaki is already hinting at this a few episodes back. Remember that she had other idol outfits made besides the initial four for Yuuki, Chisa, Airi, and Yuzuha.
It’s obvious that Misaki intends to make everyone in AiRBLUE become idols too as part of her dream. It makes sense that she wants to expand the project by merging Vogel with a bigger project she is working on called Project Himmel. With that, Misaki announce a creation of another unit within the project, which is obvious who it’s going to be.
As expected, Satori doesn’t seem to want to be part of this despite Rinne wanting to do it. I guess the idea of Satori becoming an idol is embarrassing, although she pictures herself doing it to consider it.
The main spotlight of the story is on Satori. It’s not too surprising since Rie picks up a DVD boxset of an anime series titled Bokujou no Shoukoujyou Catherine. What is so significant about this? Well, Satori’s mother, Ryouko voiced the main character of that show. Yep, I find it so funny how Rie, Mei, and Rinne become surprised that Satori’s mother is a famous voice actress.
You might be wondering, what does this has to do with Satori? Apparently, Rio shows that Satori has a voicing job request for a movie that her mother is a part in. There is a main character that Satori’s mother is voicing.
While Rio seems excited about the idea of a mother and daughter being co-stars, Satori doesn’t seem to want to be part of it. This causes her to act funny and deviate from her usual routines.
Some will become jealous of this nepotism as people struggle to find work while those with connections have it easy. To me, it’s such a waste for Satori to turn this opportunity down. It’s obvious the consequences are real since she will be missing the chance to power up her career early on. Not to mention, Rinne notices that Satori is breaking her usual routine before eventually locking herself in the room.
Eventually, Mei manages to get to her and find out the reason Satori feels so down. It’s mostly because she is conflicted with taking the role with her mother. While Satori used to look up to her mother, she is now a voice actress and doesn’t know how to interact with her. Also, there is the fear of being look at the spotlight of her mother reputation instead of building her own. She sees as Satori as a rival now as a result. Even so, it’s interesting how Mei’s shares the fact that her mother is not around much as she focuses on her own dreams. This kind of reminds me of Koi’s mother.
In the end, Satori ends up turning down the offer with a reason mentioned earlier. It’s obvious that Satori wants to build her own career her own way. At least Satori got down that line she initially had trouble with.

Distant parents are almost as much of a trope in anime and manga as dead ones.
I like Rie’s attempt to help Satori the most because chuuni girls rule, even if she’s a bargain bin chuuni.
Mei just staring at Satori outside her room made me laugh. Her poker face is adorable.
Not too surprising after all since she wants to build her own career, but not behind her mother’s spotlight. Yes, it’s not too surprising since Rie has competition compared to Ranko and Rikka. Still, I do enjoy her character,
