The Decision to Continue Forward (Saki ni Susumu to Iu Sentaku - 先に進むという選択) is the 6th episode of THE iDOLM@STER anime series. It first aired on August 12, 2011.
Ritsuko's idol unit, Ryūgū Komachi, with Azusa, Iori and Ami as its members, becomes popular after their debut and gets booked in many gigs including singing on a music television program. But the Producer, worried over the other idols popularity, decides to have the idols audition several gigs so not to lose to Ryūgū Komachi. However, he is so worried over having the girls attend their scheduled gigs that some of the girls are forced to rest for various reasons. As well, he accidentally double-books Hibiki to a concert with Makoto when Hibiki is actually with him and Haruka at another event. Luckily, Miki is able to substitute for Hibiki at the concert. The Producer realizes his mistakes over panicking over the girls' fame and apologizes to Kotori and the girls. As everyone at 765 Studios watches Ryūgū Komachi's performance on television, the Producer tells Ritsuko that he will do better to help the idols.
