The iDOLM@STER Episode 7: Yayoi’s so cute ^_^
Yayoi invites Iori and Hibiki over to her house to have dinner, where they find out that she’s the oldest of many siblings, having to take care of them all the time. During dinner, the oldest brother Chousuke runs off after an argument and Yayoi, Iori, Hibiki and Producer have to find him.
Okay I’ll stop now. But yeah you get the gist of it – Yayoi was adorable this ep ^^ Kinda reminds me of a more cheerful Nakata Sae (from Amagami SS).
They really overemphasised the fact that Yayoi’s family were poor, starting with the comparison between Iori’s mansion and Yayoi’s humble house, then with the bean sprouts being the only dish, since it was on discount at the “commoners” supermarket xD Still, it just goes to show that money can’t buy everything, as Iori isn’t exactly happy about being in the shadow of her brothers all the time, while Yayoi has a comfortable home life. Iori has the potential to be even more successful than them though, since she’s part of Ryuuguu Komachi after all.
Hibiki and Iori are really good with kids, but most surprising was that Yayoi was the oldest out of her siblings – I never really imagined Yayoi as an onee-chan, since at 765 Pro she’s one of the younger ones. Still, she seems to handle everything pretty well, and I was surprised to see Chousuke just lose it like that after telling Iori how much he wanted to help around since Yayoi was busy working as an idol. I see where he’s coming from though, it’s so easy to get sick of beans no matter how good they taste. Well, he has his manly pride to keep up now xD
Also it’s nice to see the girls relying more on Producer, though admittedly he was still more or less useless. And how can he just afford a taxi like that?
