|Episode 09 - Young DREAMER|
Ruby tells the others what she knows from Dia about why they gave up being school idols back then, which is not the whole story but the gist of it...
Everyone is spying on Kanan doing her jog... at the end she dances around like an idol... Mari is there and applauds her for deciding to return to school... Kanan said she was only on leave because of her injured dad, and has no intention of becoming a school idol again.
After all this time.. Mari still wants Kanan and Dia to go back to how they were... Kanan just scolds her for coming back to this school, and says she doesn't want to see her anymore. Mari is bullying Kanan at school now, not leaving her alone until she changes her mind... Dia is trying to get Mari off her... Chika comes in and blows up at them, and tells them to come to their club room to resolve this.
Chika is on Mari's side, and asks Kanan to tell everyone why she gave up... Kanan leaves, and then they press Dia for why she was siding with Kanan... she tries to run away, but Yoshika catches her...
She sure is your sister, Zura
Dia reveals the reason Kanan couldn't sing anymore... It's not that she didn't want to, she couldn't... For the sake of Mari who was injured at the time... Mari decided to still perform despite her injury, and Kanan didn't want her to get hurt even more... After that, the reason Kanan didn't want to continue after Mari healed, was because of the offers Mari got to study abroad... Kanan forced the group to disband in order to help Mari not miss her big opportunity... That's why Kanan was angry at Mari for even coming back here in the first place.
Mari chases Kanan, then slaps her and tells her that she cares about her too just like Kanan does for her... She never wanted to go abroad in the first place... They realize they were both doing something for what they falsely thought the other wanted... Kanan makes up with her by doing what she did when she first made friends with her, back when Mari was a foreign transfer student... Kanan spoke "Hug" in English... The first time she was able to understand what a classmate was saying to her...
Chika was spying on them along with Dia, and she convinced Dia to join Aqours along with the other 2...
Later, Mari tells them that Aqours was the name of their group then too... Someone must've made it so Chika's group would pick that name... they all look toward Dia.
