|Episode 04 - Two Girls' Feelings|
Some Hanamaru/Ruby backstory... Hanamaru is kind of an introvert and her only friend is Ruby...
Chika comes to see them and tries to push them into becoming idols again.. but You-chan and Riko say she's being to pushy...
Hanamaru can tell that Ruby wants to join them.. Ruby says she's not allowed to like school idols because of her sister... Dia used to like school idols, but as soon as she got into high school she started hating them for some reason. Ruby says she might consider it but only if Hanamaru does it too.
Mari comes to the diving area to meet Kanan, the older blue haired girl. they are already familiar with each other... Mari is trying to get Kanan to become a school idol.
While looking through a muse photobook, Ruby gets flashbacks of her and Dia... Ruby was a Hanayo fan and Dia preferred Eli. Hanamaru is looking through a muse photobook as well... Thinking to herself she can't possibly do this... but she starts to feel something different when she looks into Rin's eyes.. She tells Ruby she's going to join Aqours, and convinces Ruby to come with her...
Chika is totally pumped now... She's been wanting to get these 2 cute girls on her side since the beginning. She thinks now that these 2 are with them they'll win Love Live for sure.
The 5 of them start practicing together. When they go to run up the temple stairs, Hanamaru stays behind and tells Ruby not to hold back for her sake... Then she goes and talks to Dia.. Later, Ruby and the others run into Dia and Ruby explains to her that she wants to be a school idol.
Hanamaru says her job is now done, and she decides to go back to being alone with her books... but Ruby wants Hanamaru to be a school idol along with her... She convinces Hanamaru that she actually likes school idols as much as Ruby does... Chika tells her that it's not whether she can do it or not that matters, it's whether she wants to... Hanamaru officially joins as well.
Now there's still that mysterious Yohane girl, and the 3 third-year girls which I have no idea how they'll end up joining... Mari will probably have something to do with it.
