Everything Starts With One Courageous Step (Subete wa Ippo no Yūki kara - すべては一歩の勇気から) is the 3rd episode of THE iDOLM@STER anime series. It first aired on July 22, 2011.


The Producer and the girls head to the town of Furusato to perform a mini concert at the town's Summer Festival. There, some of the girls become disappointed about stage's small size. In addition, they have to help out with the festival preparations. Unfortunately for Yukiho, she has a fear of men, which drains her performance confidence. On the night of the town's Summer Festival, Makoto and Haruka manage to help her overcome her fear of men. Yet, she is further hindered by a fear of dogs, just as she was making progress against her androphobia. The Producer counsels Yukiho about the dog by sharing about his own cynophobia. His courage gives Yukiho the confidence she needed for a great performance with Makoto and Haruka. After everyone returns to 765 Production studios, the Producer finds a souvenir of Furusato's pickled plums on his desk by Yukiho as thanks for helping her.
