The wait is over. The premiere of the love story of a lower rank idol and her uber hardcore stan begins NOW! (If Funimation can use “stan” in their subs so can I)
We begin our story one fateful day with our leading lady “Eripiyo” (as she would soon be known). She was approached by two members of Cham Jam inviting her to check out their show. She had heard of the awesome might of idols but after Cham Jam finished their song one member stole her heart, Maina.
From that day a legend was born in the idol community: A Maina fan so devoted, so hardcore she was both admired and feared. Only one could equal her power.
Kumasu, the #1 Reo fan. The 3rd guy is a fan of Sorane.
Maina and Sorane were promoting their show when “the legend” approached. Maina skedaddled. This had been going on for a while. Eripiyo was so devoted to Maina she bought all her merch, made sure she was first in line at meet and greets, got front row seats, the works.
Maina seemed to not want to be near her. Eripiyo obviously noticed and it hurt but her devotion was so strong all she cared about was her favorite idol succeeding. Also Maina’s signature color was “Salmon Pink”. This was brought up a lot throughout the episode, mainly “Of all the colors to represent her WHY GIVE HER SUCH A WEIRD ONE!?”
On to the Cham Jam concert. The song was a catchy roll call as the girls introduced themselves and their quirks. Our heroine of course waited for her beloved’s turn. When it came…
This was no ordinary “ha ha nosebleed”.
Her devotion was so strong she didn’t care about her physical well being. Again, all that mattered was Maina.
Such a lovely woman. I hope she’s a recurring character.
It was time for the handshake. Though in rough shape she didn’t want to miss it. As usual she got to be in front. However, Maina sadly had less fans than her peers so she would not have had to wait long. My guess is probably a mix of Eripiyo hogging all her merch and her not being as interesting to fans. Anyway as Maina was about to shake Eripiyo’s hand she noticed it was still bloody. Not wanting to sully her beloved’s perfection she had the following killer line.
Maina wanted to tell her something but time ran out and she changed her mind.
At the next concert there was a worrying announcement but Eripiyo’s focus was elsewhere (so was mine admittedly).
What Kumasu and the others heard was the next Cham Jam fan event would be a limited access one so they and Eripiyo would have to be there really early to not miss out.
OF COURSE this had to be one of the hottest days of the year so our heroes suffered but did their best to persevere.
(Hopefully my professional cameraman will recover soon and is checking out this show. That way we can relish a pic of all Cham Jam cuties in their Summer dresses.)
After the show it was time for the photo op but Eripiyo was really sweaty and smelly. She didn’t want to sully her beloved. Viewers could see the disappointment in Maina.
Eripiyo knew how hardcore she was and she was weird at times but again what mattered most to her was Maina’s success, specifically her performing at Budokan. If that were to happen she could die happy…like in the title.
Meanwhile Maina revealed to viewers the reason she distanced herself from Eripiyo was because her true feelings went beyond “Thank you for being such a loyal fan”.
Yeah. The wait was totally worth it. I need more. My thoughts on the guys? They’re fine. Neither of them seem to be an obstacle as they have their own idols to worship. Also if the OP is any indication there are other female stans.
