Oshi ga Budoukan Ittekuretara Shinu Episode 9: New Year’s Cham

Naturally the next episode to follow a Christmas themed one would be New Year’s. Let’s join our uber stans and their fav idols getting ready for the occasion.

Eripiyo Celebrating Maina's cuteness

Eripiyo celebrating Maina’s cuteness.

It was the last show of the year but Eripiyo felt gloomy due to their usual venue being closed for repairs throughout January. We have the Christmas lightning bolt to thank for that. Not only would the fans be denied a Cham Jam show till February but Eripiyo was denied a live birthday celebration for Maina. She’s a January cutie, see. She tried brushing it off with her usual “Maina’s the cutest” factual proclamation…until some Yumeri fans relished her birthday being celebrated before the month long repairs.

Eripiyo was on fire this episode. More so than usual. Ai Fairouz is a potential mega seiyu in the making with three fantastic roles in her repertoire.

Eripiyo relishing Maina's voice recording

Eripiyo is a legend.

As a treat for fans Cham Jam would record a special voice message for them. As we can see Eripiyo relished Maina’s message as only she could. Poor Maina misunderstood, as usual, Eripiyo’s madness. This moment served another purpose.

Miss Sakiko rarely appears but when she does I feel blessed. That’s all I’ll say about Eripiyo’s family. The rest of the scene felt too real. It hurt my soul watching it. The pain…

Eripiyo watching Reo's New Year's Show

Eripiyo watching Reo’s New Year’s Eve Show.

Watching Eripiyo sulking, eating ramen and watching Reo’s show made me laugh. Don’t ask why. Eripiyo was like “It REALLY sucks I won’t get to see Maina for over a month!”. She called Other Guy (more importantly Rena) to visit the shrine for the traditional New Year’s prayer.

Eripiyo, Rena and Motoi

Eripiyo, Mini-Sorane and Other Guy.

Eripiyo spent most of the evening stressing over her last meeting with Maina. It wasn’t the best. We knew Maina didn’t think badly of her but as always, misunderstandings. Fortunately by the time the sun rose Eripiyo bounced back and vowed to continue loving Maina throughout the new year yelling her devotion to the mountains and heavens. Best part was her calling for Rena when they got lost in the crowd. She was like “Who cares about Other Guy. Don’t leave me Rena!”

Maina and Yuka Praying

Maina and Yuka praying.

This episode served another small purpose. Give viewers a better idea of how Yuka’s mind works. After the last show Reo reminded everyone her hopes of them performing at Budokan. Everyone but Yuka was very pensive. Yuka said she didn’t care about going to Budokan. During the shrine visit with Maina we got a better explanation. When Maina asked about it Yuka said she didn’t care because what mattered most was the love and adulation of the fans. Hence it didn’t matter where she performed so long as everyone loved and cheered for her (and the rest of Cham Jam). This changed when some of her fans requested she record lines saying she’ll meet them at Budokan. Thanks to that she’s like “Let’s all to Budokan!”. Yuka is straightforward and does things her way but when given the right motivation she goes the extra mile for the team.

Those were the main talking points of the episode. Great stuff as usual. Okay. Let’s not beat around the bush and get to what many of us are here for:

Maki and Yumeri reminiscing

Oh yes. Good times. Clearly talking about their moments.

Maki and Yumeri New Year's

Spending New Year’s together.

So how did Cham Jam spent New Year’s? Reo was on a talk show. Sorane and A-Ya were at home, Maina and Yuka went to the shrine. What were the hot couple doing?

Why spend New Year’s together of course. What else? Another important detail?

Maki and Yumeri New Year's 4

They held hands allllllll night long. Once again we see Maki’s the top, seen here going for extra lewdness.

Maki didn’t care but Yumeri wasn’t ready to publicly announce their love. Yuka, for obvious reasons, didn’t seem to care about lesbians, meaning she’s like “love is love”. Pay attention to Yuka’s response to Yumeri’s excuse on why Maki and her were so close.

Lastly as my dear sister said, “Please tell me they live together”. We’ll most likely find out next episode. The hype is real.

    Pretty chill episode, even the misundestanding was harmless this time, it used to be a lot worse, so they definitely got better.

    Yuka becomes more and more likeable each time, and New Year is always a good time for lesbians as shown in other anime.

    Maina’s birthday will be a day without concert, I’m really curious how the show will deal with that and Eripiyo celebrating her girl.

    For me, it seemed that Yuka didn´t have any idea that Maki x Yumeri are girlfriends and she believed the handholding excuse at once, while doing the same with Maina.

    Or she already knew it and did it on purpose to tease them.

    After a certain preview scene, the chances that M x Y are living together are very high.

    Awwww, look at them, doing such a lewd thing in the midst of thousands of people, gotta give it to their boldness. It looks like we’ll get an intimate view into their personal life next episode.

    I think it’s pretty hopeless for Eripiyo to make advances at this point so all of my hopes are poured on Maina and another “coincidental’ train ride, perhaps an extremely vacant train segment.

    Another absolute fantastic episode!

    Ai Fairouz is truly fantastic! Her performance is blowing me away!

    And of course the Maki x Yumeri this episode, when I saw them at home together I squealed! And all the hand holding. I am so hyped for next episode if that preview is anything to go by! I can never get enough of these 2!

  5. Ah, the pressure of finding a job.
    I feel for Eripyo, I’ve been there….

    I really like that moment when Yuka’s fans were cheering for her to go to the Budokan, and that in turn inspired her to really go for it. Ganbaruby, girl! Go for it!

    Another great ep this week!

    The voice message was a cool thing. Would be nice to have a personal message from your favorite idol.

    That scene with Eripyo’s family was pretty real. Thankfully no one has pressured me about getting married, yet….

    Some quality Yumeri x Maki moments this ep too. Always love to see them together! Also, it totally looks like they live together. I hope that’s the case!

    And as always, Maina was super cute.

    Good episode.
    The first version of what Eripiyo wanted Maina to record (the one where she talked really fast) might actually not be that far off from what Maina feels for her.

    I was hoping for a scene where Maki and Yumeri recorded messages for each other. I would have died if it happened.

    Not sure if this came up before but we now know that Eripiyo real name is Eri.

    Eripiyo’s family is just FeelsBadMan.

    I love how Eripiyo keeps making fun of Motoi. I feel like when she said ” I don’t care about Motoi but don’t leave me, Rena” she was voicing what most of the audience feels.

    It’s amazing how Maki and Yumeri can steal the show whenever they are on screen. Next episode promises more of them so HYPE.

    Oh yeah, posting here is a thing I occasionally do.

    Unfortunately Maina has yet to master the art of talking as fast as Eripiyo.

    Makis everywhere continue to be extremely sexy. We need a season 2 of Devil is a Part-Timer just for more of that Maki.

    Sorane and Maki have definitely established why they’re in the top 3. Reo, not so much.

    To the Bodoukan!
