    I didn’t know the main 3 are starting as back up dancers, but I like and it feels more realistic. I guess the newbies are getting work over the older workers, but I like the stuff with the cat ear girl. I love seeing Rin happy and the food cheer was great, but the motivating stuff reminds me how unmotivated I am. I still like this motivated dream stuff, it just sucks my dreams didn’t work out. I am glad that I kept watching this.

    This episode is the first of many stages, the first time we feel the anxiety of our new stars. While the stage experience feels like a dream to our idols, the stress feels all too real. Not kidding, almost having a nervous breakdown along with Uzuki, Mio, and Rin, and then feeling the relief as soon as they stuck the landing and danced their hearts away… This is what got me into this series. This is what nailed it into my own heart. This is the first of many homeruns. This is a long-winded train of analogies, and I should stop.

    Keep in mind, Rin is still only doing this as a trial run, just dipping her toe into this whole idol business. We got to see her first big smile (YESH!), so she’s obviously enjoying it at least a little, but what will her decision be in the long-run?

    A good amount of clocks; turns out the clock is the first symbol associated with being “Cinderella Girls”, as presented to the audience members as well. Their time has officially started, as noted by the single clock-tick after the live. It’s all good stuff, tying our hearts to the anticipation of our lovely idols.

    Mio’s character trait: luck. So good at rock, paper, scissors…

    Also, Jealousy. Don’t you feel so bad for Miku? …No? How about the others? It seems kind of unfair to them that these newbies, the last ones chosen for the Cinderella project, are the first ones on the stage, while they have to continue practicing with no indication or idea of when their debut will be.

    Smiles, man. So many smiles.

    Ahh, too fast, too fast. I agree with Producer. Despite their potential, I don’t think they’re ready yet either. Sure, it’s a good first step and an effective way to get them to understand the necessary hard work and dedication, but dat sudden jump opens a mixed bag of positives and negatives.

    Akane is one of my favorites. I want to be engulfed in the flames of her burning passion.
