That Changes Who I Am (Jibun o Kaeru to Iu Koto - 自分を変えるということ) is the 4th episode of THE iDOLM@STER anime series. It first aired on July 29, 2011.


Haruka paired with Chihaya and Takane paired with Hibiki appear on a cable TV cooking show battle hosted by a frog hand puppet. Before the show begins, Chihaya questions the Producer about the removal of the singing section. Yet, he advises her to bear with the change. Simultaneously, he learns about Chihaya's living situation. As two teams duel, the host pokes fun of the girls' mistakes while the cameraman takes video from lewd angles. Chihaya becomes fed up, expresses displeasure, and shocked the studio a little. However, Haruka breaks the silence and the shows resumes as normal. As the show takes a break, Chihaya goes to a quiet area to calm herself with singing. Worried, the Producer finds her, apologizes to her, and promises about getting singing jobs. The other three girls help Chihaya's discomfort, telling her to express herself to the audience, similar as if she is singing. With this support, Chihaya improves; and the show concludes successfully. After the show, the Producer rewards the girls to some sweets; but Chihaya declines and goes home. As Chihaya walks on, he remembers about Chihaya's sad living situation, realizing his lack of familiarity about the idols.
