As the second season of Bloom Ball recording kicks off, Honoka confronts a script with having a lot of lines. Haruna and her friends eventually noticed that she is acting strangely.
It seems that Rie got a taste of recording an actual named role this time. Sadly, she seems upset over making very apparent mistakes. It’s obvious that Rie was a bit nervous. Thankfully, Honoka reassures Rie not to worry too much. Either way, I find it funny how Honoka brags about having no mistakes and Shiho tells her not to get too cocky.
What Shiho says kind of comes back to bite Honoka. She receives a draft of the script for the third episode, which had a lot of lines for Ayame. Honoka doesn’t seem confident as she unintentionally upsets the sound director. After realizing this, Honoka tries to apologize, but he went back to the recording studio before he heard it.
As expected, Honoka can’t keep overthinking about what happened. Of course, Riko along with other girls in the dorm is about to watch the anime that Riko, Mahoro, Aya, and Miharu is working on. Yep, it feels unconventional and sort of feels like Narita Girls that has no coherent story. It does kind of feel that way, but it seems that Haruna seems to enjoy it.
Eventually, Honoka with Haruna, Shiho, and Maika practiced the script at their training studio. It’s one week before the recording start and Honoka can’t get the exact feeling of Ayame. Eventually, the girls realized how late it was and decides to get food. Of course, Honoka made an excuse that she forgot something. She practiced even more while Haruna, Maika, and Shiho became worried that something happened to her.
Eventually, Kirika checked on Honoka. Yep, she saw Honoka doing push-ups and Kirika wondering what she is doing. Apparently, she is having trouble grasping the feelings for Ayame in that scene. Honoka eventually mentions that she is a big Thunder Woman fan, which looks like Wonder Woman from the DC Universe. Sure, she is strong, but Kirika mentions that her strength comes from overcoming her weaknesses.
After observing Honoka’s performance, Kirika noticed that something was off about her performance. This is when she mentions the weaknesses that Thunder Woman face and how she overcome them to become stronger.
From the lines, Ayame is facing a similar situation. While she is known for being a cheerful girl that boosts the team morale, she faced challenges of her own. The fear of losing her regular spot again and facing failure, that causes her to question herself as a player.
With that, Honoka after a few tries managed to convey the feeling of frustration from these weaknesses. Yep, the same weaknesses and frustrations that Honoka’s favorite superheroine, “Wonder Woman” faced. Of course, Kirika spectates her performance, before she left. I find it funny how Shiho thought Honoka’s favorite superheroine is Batwoman. Of course, they can’t mention the actual names, unless they want Warner Media sue them.
Either way, it’s nice to see Honoka grow as a voice actress after overcoming a difficult scene to record. That leaves the next episode, which Rie’s childhood friend, Mei finally gets the spotlight. Maybe we get some clues how she met Rie and became friends with her.
