It was time for the soon to be 4th member of our heroine group to show interest in joining. Let’s see how it all went down.
We began with a young blue haired girl, Rei, enjoying the same DJ concert Rinku did but from a different location.
After the OP we got a good look at our heroines’ stage costumes, more importantly Maho’s impressive guns. Speaking of Maho she asked Muni about her plushie. She got a name and one of the best “long pause” jokes I have ever seen. I’ve said this many times already but anime are so good at long pause jokes. I love them so much!
I guess Muni’s more of a “balanced guns” girl. I gotcha.
I think I’ve had enough scares for one day.
With three members now Maho had the idea of competing at the Sunset Stage. Think of it as the Love Live! tournament for DJs or something like that. Only 8 groups could qualify to compete there. Muni had the idea of entering the Photon Maiden song writing contest to boost their street cred. Maho said she needed the help of a pianist to start working on it. Rinku offered to learn herself.
Later we followed Rei on her way to the piano room where she found Rinku practicing. She showed her how to play the tune she was practicing and Rinku immediately wanted Rei to teach her paying with “Rinku Shells”.
We then got a quick and to the point character struggle. Rei’s a very talented pianist and her elders pressured her to aim for the top. So much so she appeared to have lost the desire to play because she enjoyed it and worried Rinku’s enthusiasm could fade like hers did.
Rinku had potential but wasn’t fast enough to get better before the contest deadline. Maho suggested asking Rei to help compose instead. She was a bit hesitant but agreed.
After multiple recordings the group picked the right tune to make a beat with. Unfortunately the song was eliminated in the first round.
Rei like the others was disappointed and thought this defeat would get them down for a while but the next day was surprised to see the gang already preparing for their next show. Not only that but they’re going to use her song.
It was a nice song. Slower than the remix we were accustomed to.
Rei was in tears after the performance, happy to see people enjoy her song and the gang having a lot of fun on stage. Her passion was revitalized from the looks of it and possibly became a member as a result. If not yet then surely by the next episode.
Good stuff once more. Next time it looks like Muni will take center stage once again.
