Chisato tries to cheer up Kanon to overcome her fears in performing alone in the stage. One time, Kanon remembers her past, and she saw her own younger self. What made her to perform and sing alone a song in the stage? Can she do it, or it shall be the same fate from her past?

EPISODE REVIEW

Are we heading into this series end? Or otherwise, are we heading into the penultimate of the first season? Yeah, time really flies fast. According to some sources, Episode 11 is the penultimate one, indeed!

In this penultimate Episode, there are funny things that happened, as well as some serious, yet close to crying scenes that occurred.

One thing about Ren is that she doesn’t know much about Internet and technology. Whenever she saw something interesting and eye-catchy, she is having some second thoughts, and she begins to become nervous and embarrassed. Also, she represents some people who were always being ‘baited’ by some obscene and misleading information.

Somehow, we were being teleported back in the previous Episode 1, where Kanon remembers the portion of her own childhood past. So then, we can able to see them clearly in this Episode.

Since Kanon and Chisato were classmates in the same school when they were kids, Chisato has thought of a strategy on how she could let Kanon stand in the stage alone singing without anybody else at her side. She then summons the other three girls and told them about Kanon’s childhood past.

At the Episode 6, in the childhood past times, Kanon helps Chisato when she saw her being bullied by the other kids around. Also, she helped her when she got tripped as she runs.

At the Episode 11, this time around, it shows that it’s really Chisato’s turn to help Kanon in making her brave in singing alone on the stage at the front of people.

So then, we can finally see Kanon’s child form for the last time. This time, she is confronting her own child self (past).

Basically, this penultimate Episode shows about on how to overcome your own odds that were from the past. We all know that we can’t rewrite our own past, because it has already happened. The only thing we can do, in order to change our future, is that we need to try harder in the present time. We can only rewrite our present time. And that is, in order to change our outcome of the future!

So then, we are fast-approaching towards the finale. What shall happen next this time around? And also, we can expect some new song of theirs to appear on the next Episode, and I shall be looking forward into that! What’s that new song could be? They shall be answered in the next Episode Review of this series. TO BE CONCLUDED.
