Something is going down with council in this episode they are afraid of team Otari its not following protocol plus they are getting attention from other students as being nontraditional group. I cant figure out the big focus on venues except maybe the council does something like kick a team to outside venue the most unpopular choice but unlimited crowds hmmmm pure speculation on my guess

Flashback episode. Seems like this one had quite a bit of focus about Tsubasa Hiiragi. That music video at the end seems to have quite a bit of feelings poured into it.

Episode 9

So Otori and Hiragi are brothers who were separated when the Hiragi family took Tsubasa in. That's how Otori got his renegade personality seeing that Hiragi's freedom was taken away just like that. They did reunite when they were on the same Star Team, but Otori left in his pursuit of freedom. So back to the present, the Kao Council has decided to remove Team Otori from the competition and in response, Otori leaves the council, all while keeping his Star Team in the dark about all this. And Hoshitani admires some high schooler so much unaware that Otori is that person. Now that things have gotten really bad between Otori and the rest of the Kao Council that it sets the stage for tough times to come seeing that the whole Ayanagi tradition is really rearing its ugly head.

Episode 9

Demoted...

The episode focused on Otori and Hiragi's past and how they came to be in the present. This was displayed after the demotion of Team Otori and Otori himself after he quit the council. I enjoyed this episode as it took a turn to a different route, which made for some decent suspense and could potentially cause conflict with some of Team Otori's members. The backstory was alright, but there were some parts to be picky about, such as, the adoption. Why was Hiragi specifically chosen? Why were they being adopted? What happened? Things like that.

With Team Otori's performance canceled, I wonder what they will do? Looking forward to the next one.

I can't help wondering... is that a thing that is ok in Japanese society? A "main family" taking a kid from a "branch family" and the poor kid never getting to see his real family again? Because that is just so, so wrong.

Episode 10

With Otori's sudden withdrawal and leave of absense, the former Star Team is now performing outdoors, and not only that, their performance overlaps with Team Hiragi's. Nayuki sure has a creative way of showing that they are a star team with the shumai. So with Team Otori facing adversity, Hoshitani and Nayuki decide to take a day off to have fun. Then they end up eating at Inumine's family restaurant where everybody dresses up as shumai dogs and dance. After that, everybody is back on the same page ready to make an impact at the festival. That was pretty funny seeing those boys doing that shumai dance at the restaurant, but in the end the boys are ready to perform regardless of where Otori is.

The episode had slice of life, some loneliness, then reuniting feelings to it. There was some comedy that was funny too, like the restaurant dance, haha.

Looking forward to the next one.

Episode 11

Did anybody get feels in this episode? I did just a little bit.

So, the episode was sort of like a motivational pumper for Team Otori. All sorts of character interactions take place, especially with Hoshitani. We finally see him and Otori talk it out and in the end, Hoshitani gets his resolve back. The musicals were nice as always; that's always the meat when it comes to this series. I thought there was going to a BL moment between Nayuki and Hoshitani, but I was wrong and I am glad I was, haha. With the stage being crumbled down due to the storm, it seems Team Otori doesn't have a stage to perform on, so I wonder what the council has to say about it?

Next week is endgame for this series, so it's been one heck of a ride so far. Looking forward to the finale!

Episode 11

With the news about Team Otori's demotion, it hits hard on the team and now there's concern that they won't even perform. But Hiiragi is such a nice guy there letting the team experience Haruto's performance firsthand. While Hoshitani's heart has been out of it, he's talked into performing again. So with that, Team Otori is ready to perform, but the festival happens to be during a big typhoon, and the outdoor stage has collapsed. One more episode to go, and it remains to be seen if and where Team Otori is going to perform as the council is making a decision. That was great to see that their feelings were all sorted out seeing that Otori left the Kao Council in order to let them perform at the festival.

The duet imo was surprisingly catchy, wasn't entirely expecting that. Episode felt slow though except for the final parts. The storm hit like a bullet along with the news of the stage collapse. Uh oh...

Seems like the team spirit for Team Otori still remains strong though.
