When the iDOLS need to be harmonized to be more efficient, Haruka is sent to an old member of the team who is the only one that can do it, however Haruka finds her less then willing to go back because of something that happened in the past.
This episode was great. Even without action scenes, the show is becoming really interesting, and I think thatâ€™s a great example of a show being exciting without action. While there are still action scenes, and they are interesting too, they are doing a great job with the drama about iDOLS having hearts and things in the last about them. I really was unsure of what part Ami would play, and I didnâ€™t guess at all that something like what happened to her and her sister happened, but it really made things interesting. It put a whole new level of drama on things, not to mention including some information on the unmentioned iDOLS. It seems like Ami will be a regular character now, as she was shown in the preview. I donâ€™t really know what part sheâ€™d be able to play though. The only reason they NEEDED her back was for the melody thing, and it seems like thatâ€™s just a check up kind of thing, not a full time job. I suppose she could be a backup pilot, but with only two IDOLS they donâ€™t really need that many. Still, whatever part she ends up playing she really did, at least for this episode, bring a much darker look at some of the things that can happen with iDOLS. Although it was resolved here, Iâ€™m sure theyâ€™ll touch upon this topic again. Really, the whole series has done a good job at becoming interesting by using this drama. Really, the action hasnâ€™t been the best or the most prominent, but this focus on the connection between iDOLS and their masters has been, and it’s great.
We still donâ€™tâ€™ know much about the other missing iDOL. We found out that Tempestus is one of them, but the other one hasnâ€™t been concretely said. Apparently its â€œmissing in actionâ€ like Tempestus is, so something likely happened to it. I still think that that â€œEmi-chanâ€ iDOL that the loli drew cold be the missing one, and if she knows about it itâ€™s likely to have as interesting or more of a story then Tempestus did.
Next episode seems to still feature Ami, but also dealing with Makoto. Seeing as how the two of them were both in the whole iDOL deal when they were kids, there has to be some history between them which seems to be the topic of next episode. Which, of course will end up leading to some character development for Makoto. She really does need it, as she is an interesting character and Iâ€™m sure there is more to her, but really because of all theyâ€™ve given us she comes across like sheâ€™s just a bitch. Although she may be one a bit, there has to be some reason so hopefully this next episode will make her more interesting and a bit more understandable.
