Despite Kinako’s initial difficulties, she is finally getting the hang of it. But then, a mysterious purple-haired girl decides to seek out Kanon, which might get in the way of Liella’s lofty goals.
Like I said in the last episode, Kinako would eventually get used to the intense practice regimen, and she did. But, after that, she needed to put more faith in herself. That said, Kinako saw the stage on which Kanon and Keke first performed a year ago. Now, they are invited to the Yoyogi School Idol Festival.
As expected, Keke gets excited about Sunny Passion’s last performance. She holds two tickets, although Kinako doesn’t know who they are. Kanon talked to Mao and Yuuna, and they aren’t going to stop at one win. They want to do another and achieve the goal of consecutive wins. While Kanon supports their goals, it interferes with Liella’s goal of winning Love Live. After all, they haven’t had a major win.
Either way, it seems Kinako is out early and doing better than before with her practice. Then, Chisato finds a letter and reads it while bringing out the orange juice. It’s obvious who the sender was. It’s no other than Mei, who looks from far away as she gets excited. As expected, Shiki wished that Mei delivered it directly instead. I have a feeling that Mei will defrost eventually.
At the playground, when Kinako parted ways, Kanon talked to Chisato about her meeting with Mao and Yuuna. Of course, Kanon is conflicted since she roots for them, but it interferes with her goals. After all, Kanon wants to accomplish something and live up to expectations. That is when a mysterious purple-haired girl appears, asking Kanon to sing. But, of course, when Chisato appears, that girl disappears. I wonder what is up with her.
At the festival, when the girls gathered and met with some of the students from their school. I find it funny how Chisato’s iPhone battery ran out when Sumire wanted to say something. Yes, Sumire is truly a butt monkey. Also, Kanon runs into the purple-haired girl again in her stage outfit. She leaves when Ren appears, and she chases after all.
As expected, Kanon saw the purple-haired girl’s performance as Kanon just stood there. As expected, Liella didn’t win. They ended up in 2nd place again. Kinako blames herself for not winning, but Kanon says it’s not her fault. Thankfully, their fans share text messages with encouragement, so they shouldn’t feel too down.
Of course, you might be wondering who the purple-haired girl is. Her name is Margarethe Wien, and she stands in the way of Kanon’s lofty goals. After all, she talks to Kanon and seems disappointed at Kanon not living up to her unit’s reputation since she didn’t win at the Yoyogi School Idol Festival. However, she also plans to participate in Love Live and believes she will win against Liella. Yes, she starting to sound like Lanzhu, but can Kanon prove them wrong?
Kanon talked to her teammates as she shared her disappointment. I understand how frustrating it can be not to win once. Thankfully, some students showed Kanon and her friends the trophy the school received and congratulated her. Yes, for the 2nd place win, which they are fine, along with other achievements. After all, they should beat themselves too much as they still accomplished a lot in their first year and still have time.
Either way, they had a performance live for the school, and the students enjoyed it. Mei is moved, especially as she cries. Will she be the next member to join along with Shiki? Also, it’s funny how Natsumi is struggling with delivering for Uber Eats. Natsumi receives a bad review for being one minute late. She needed a side hustle after the stock market crashed, and she lost all her money in meme stocks. Also, I admit it’s funny to hear her say, “god damn.”
