Plot Summary

Mantarou decides to give the members of Star*Feather and HEAVEN MOON a day off by renting out part of a water park. As the gang slowly assemble, Hotaru gets delayed due to some sudden work.

Meanwhile, as Yurina gets lost while shooting a vlog, she discovers an underground studio where the mysterious idol is in training. Later, it is revealed Hotaru is to participate in a Thrilling Student Audition against Youhei Akatsuma, who he has never been able to beat before. As Yurina and Asuna discover the Luminous Agency again later that day, they find Youhei is the one using it to rehearse for his web concerts.

To lighten up the mood, Asuna suggests they have a water sports contest, which soon draws a crowd. Having been called by Yurina several times, Hiroshi decides to get Makoto and Hotaru to the water park as quickly as possible so he can share another memory with them. As Yurina and the boys visit Hotaru's room, they learn about how he was given some rare cards from a brand designer he admired.

As Hotaru and Youhei compete together in the final audition, they end up reaching a tie, deciding to settle the score another time. Noticing the loud crowd they have gathered, the gang decide to secretly put on a song for them. After the park closes, Hotaru and Youhei manages to convince Hiroshi to let the boys stay longer so they can play with Yurina.
