Stop right there, criminal scum!
What do you do when a scandal affects one of your idols? 765 Pro handles it like, well, pros. Ignoring the 961 Pro scenes (which are painful to watch as always), what we get is a pretty awesome plot about how Moon Princess Takane beats her foes.
I’m not sure how accurate this situation is with the industry (I’m not an idol fan at all, I just watch this show), but I swallowed it all up anyway. Takane handles the whole fallout with class, continuing her daily routine with head held up high. The same can’t be said with the local entertainment industry here, where scandals just explode in everyone’s faces. That’s why I appreciate this episode even more.
Takane’s air of mysteriousness is preserved, but that doesn’t mean we get to know her better. Despite being extremely amiable to everyone, Takane’s actually a bit of a social klutz. She also has a butler! Wonder where the old capital is, though.
The Producer does a reasonable support role again. With ConReCon, I learned something valuable and work-related from watching a cartoon about idols! Try this one out if you haven’t, guys!
The Melancholy of Chihaya Kisaragi has been brewing over the past few episodes, and we finally see it erupt. She showed up to give some advice to Takane, but the subplot with her brother came up again right after. The next episode preview is rather heavy-handed, but I hope the staff handles this maturely. Don’t give up, Chihaya!
