It's the day of the 765 Pro Thank You Concert but complications arise for Ritsuko and Ryūgū Komachi when a Typhoon hits the city, leading all transit trains to be stopped, forcing Ritsuko and the others to drive to the concert only to get into a traffic jam. With the audience now arriving at the concert, the Producer orders a change of plans to the backstage crew and the idols to have them perform first to buy enough time for Ryūgū Komachi to arrive. At first, the concert is doing fine until the audience starts to feel bored and wonders where Ryūgū Komachi are. Backstage, Hibiki, Makoto, Mami, Yukiho and Yayoi starts to panic but Haruka manages to calm them and tells them to give excitement to the audience. However a problem arises when the Producer learns that they have mistakenly ordered for Miki to perform two consecutive songs, both requiring intensive dance performances. Despite how exhausting it will be doing two songs without rest, Miki is determined to do it. An exhausted Miki succeeds in performing both songs amazingly which the Producer, Chihaya and Haruka praises her. With one last song, the song they have been practicing, the idols give it their all, exciting the crowd and pumping them up for Ryūgū Komachi, who have finally arrive at the concert. After the end of the concert, Ritsuko, Ami, Azusa and Iori go backstage to see the others only to find them sleeping from exhaustion and being watched over the Producer, President Junjirō and Kotori. Despite that, they congratulate their friends on a great job.
