Things are progressing at a decent pace. The girls should be able to finish their game in time for Summer Comiket. And yet one little detail changes everything.
(Spoilers in this review)
Well, first thing’s first. Do I keep calling our main character Honda? Or should I go with Tamaki? I know Honda’s her last name and Tamaki is her first name, but both names just sound good. I’ll go for Tamaki for now. Feedback would be much appreciated.
ANYWAYS, a little less than half of the episode is focused on Tamaki getting better. She somehow became feverish while trying to draw old men. Shiina and Ayame go to her place to keep her company while Tamaki’s grandma heads out to buy medicine. Getting sick in Japan is no joke, so good on ya, granny. But where’s Yumine?
However, it turns out that the SNS club couldn’t secure a spot in Summer Comiket, which uses a lottery system to determine who gets booths and such. Ayame sort of planned ahead and entered the SNS club in a back-up event just in case. But said event happens to take place in a week.
As such, their schedule goes from spanning several months to being a last-minute all-nighter. Kayo stays at home in order to use her expensive equipment, but Shiina, Ayame, and Tamaki meet up at school. They also bring their all-nighter supplements! You know, the stuff they’ll use in order to keep themselves up.
There’s some drama when Kayo stops responding for a few hours. You know how it is when you do group projects but someone just kind of disappears. But it turns out she was busy finishing SIX songs. I’m glad that Tamaki kept her faith in her senpai nevertheless. The other members bite the bullet, too, so they manage to finish the game.
So the game is also called Stella no Mahou. Apparently the title has a hidden meaning in which 5 roles come together to form a “stellar magic” in order to produce a video game. I kid you not, that’s what was said in the show.
The episode ends with the girls grabbing a bit of sleep before heading off to the convention. I hope Tamaki doesn’t get corrupted by the erotic doujins and video games.
Next week’s episode is titled, “Exhibition Sale.” Fujoshi childhood friend Yumine is at it again, it seems. Maybe she’ll attend the convention, too. See you next week!
