The Producer informs the girls that their big break has come as they will be performing live at a 765 Pro Thank You Concert. Despite it's main event being Ryūgū Komachi, the girls are excited since they will be performing a new song and dance routine. However, the girls have to go through tough dance and vocal lessons which some of the girls are having problems doing it right, especially since their exams are coming out. When Yukiho feels like quitting for not catching up in dancing, Takane encourages her not to give up and be more determined. Inspired by Takane, Chihaya decides to help Haruka's vocal training at night which forces her to stay at Chihaya's apartment. While helping making dinner, Haruka learns Chihaya lives alone due to her parents divorce and Chihaya learns that becoming an idol is Haruka's dream. Thanks to their hardwork and determination, the girls finally perfect their singing and dance routine. Due to a misunderstanding between her and the Producer some time ago, Miki believes she is now talented enough to join Ryūgū Komachi but Ritsuko explains to a dejected Miki why she can't. The next day, the girls' exams are over and are preparing for their next dance lesson but Miki has not arrived, and as they notice her absence, the Producer receives a message from her calling him a liar.
