the captain of the basketball club Chiaki Morisawa (Yuichi Hose) learns that Trickstar has gotten a de facto breakup when he hears about Subaru and Mao’s absence from Shinobu Sengoku (Anju Nitta). It made Chiaki to speak to Subaru at a loss if he belongs to Chiaki’s group.

Highlights of Ep. 8

Trickstar Members Encountered At “Venus Cup”

Hokuto, Subaru, Makoto and Mao attended Venus Cup as impromptu duos from each class of first year students. It was held at the same day of Dre-Fes in the episode of “Marionette.”

Hokuto and Subaru were lonely at this time: both of them were struggling to become an idol overcoming their parents' coattails. Makoto wanted to change himself. Mao worked only behind the scenes. At this day, four of them learned joyfulness of the stage with buddies for the first time.

“We are not alone.” They established an emotional bond with each other, which made them to form Trickstar. This group name comes from “trickster” in this day’s conversation (Hokuto pronounced very well!).

They found brightness of idols, buddies that can support each other, where they should belong and the stage they can feel joy on. This is the story of their encounter that lets you know how precious Trickster is for them.

Subaru’s Father and Hokuto’s Father

In this episode, you can figure out that Subaru’s father was also a great idol. Subaru entered Yumenosaki Private Academy to touch his favorite father’s glory. “Dad is always in the precious part of my mind.” Subaru has hoped to be a brilliant idol based on the memory of his father.

In contrast, Hokuto’s father is an active top idol. He disliked his parents as he didn’t want to be called by his name previously. It is painful that he couldn’t dispute Eichi’s trick as he is wondering if he might just escape from his parents.
