This episode is like the episode of priceless expressions or something. So in this episode, Iori, Azusa, and Ami are chosen for Ryuuguu Komachi, which is Ritsuko’s project idea. With his competitive spirit engaged, the Producer decides to try his best to give the rest of the girls their own projects so they don’t lose to Ryuuguu Komachi. However, he becomes a tad overzealous and makes a lot of mistakes. He ends up matching girls with jobs that aren’t suited for them. He double books Hibiki, and Miki offers to replace her. She ends up being late, but she is able to learn the dance just from watching Makoto do it once, so the show ends up being a success. The girls all get together to watch Iori, Azusa, and Ami perform and it turns out well. This episode was pretty interesting, especially with surprise genius Miki. To be honest, I semi-expected it, but it was still cool.
In this episode, some of the girls go on a show called Kero Kero Kitchen. The show is sort of a battle of chefs, which disappoints Chihaya because she had wanted the chance to sing. Her performance ends up being lackluster and she disappears during the commercial break. The Producer is able to find her by herself singing. After talking with the Producer, Chihaya decides to give the cooking show another try. Chihaya and Haruka don’t end up winning (I dunno how the judges decided when they didn’t eat the dishes), but the show ends up turning out well. I was kind of expecting the Producer to do something extravagant at the end like show up at Chihaya’s house with a bunch of the girls (Chihaya lives alone), but nothing like that happened. Oh well. It looks like next week is the obligatory beach episode, though.
