Show By Rock!! Episode 9: Falling Star Dreamline
Plasmagica readies for their battle of the bands performance, but shit really hits the fan fast.
We got our first problem, Chuchu. Darkness is slowly taking over her heart. There were times she spaced out, but the girls were able to bring her back. But they can see that Chuchu is really not being herself. The pressures of the band is probably getting to her. She’s thinking up of anything she can to make their performance perfect. The twin vocals, the backup vocals, but she worked to make the band have a little bit more impact. Just like the “originality” idea they had, they worked on their “performance”, which was trying to make flashy moves on stage, which wasn’t going too well. And just like last time, Rom comes in and gives a speech about how immature that is, and that they just need to connect with their audience with their music, not flashy moves. Chuchu seems a little hurt that her idea was shot down, but Retoree reminds Chuchu they need to have fun, and show everyone their smiles. Which is a little funny because in their CG models they don’t have mouths.
Another thing bothering Chuchu is Criticrista’s main girl, Rosia. She’s never liked her, but the way she ignored Chuchu and immediately threw herself on Cyan really struck her. She didn’t even bother watching their performance and her eyes glowed.So the battle happens, and everyone is blown away by Plasmagica, and they won. This is a great moment for them, and I hope this would boost Chuchu’s mood, but guessing from the preview the darkness in her heart isn’t gone. As for our losers, Criticrista…holy crap. I was actually creeped out by this part. After watching their performance, Rosia knew that they had lost and she almost collapsed. She broke down and cried, yelling at her band members that they could not lose. It’s then that Dagger enters the room, grabs Ogasawara by the head and throws him out. An evil, dark aura eminates from Dagger. The girls run and cower in the corner and Dagger grabs their Melodisian stones and taints them. I’m not sure if he outright killed them or turned them into dark monsters, or they might have just passed out. I don’t think they would include death in this type of show, so I’m just going to guess maybe they passed out…or something. But really, this part actually freaked me out. Rosia pisses me off, but I felt bad for her and the girls when they were crying and running to the corner.
Rosia mentioned that they could not lose. I’m wondering if she knew something like this would happen.
As for Dagger. I don’t think it’s just Cyan he wants. On his screen, he had info and pictures of both Syuzo and Darudayu. But that makes sense, since he wants the best people in his band to gain popularity and rule the universe, or whatever he wants. He’s going to have to gain them by force. Speaking of Darudayu, she seems to be connected somehow with the president and Angelica. I don’t know how, but she’s connected with Grateful King aka most likely Berry. There’s still a lot of mysteries in this show that hasn’t been cleared up yet, or has provided enough clues for me to figure things out. Where is Grateful King being kept? How is Darudayu connected? What’s going on with Chuchu? Cyan is supposed to be getting stronger but I feel like we haven’t seen that yet. The show is going to end in a few episodes, and I feel like at this moment things need to really pick up. With the ending that we got this episode, that may very well happen.
