Still found it hard to like Eri. I was betting on this episode to make me change my mind. Although it eased it a bit, still don’t like her as much.
She means well. Her intentions to save the school are honest to heart… but she takes it too seriously. She feels it’s something she MUST do because of her position of student council president. And because of it, she takes it out on the girls and their (school) idol activities thinking such amateurish activities is not a good image for such a prestigious school… or at least she tries to make it look prestigious.
At least this episode, she tried to make them become better.
Nobody questioned Kotori’s power levels. (Want this to be addressed before the series ends.)
She was so sure they would quit because the training would be too hard for them. Her elite ballet is not for the weak minded. That was the only reason she decided to help, they’ll quit once they learn how tough it is to be a good dancer.
TOTALLY WRONG THERE, ERI!
These girls love their school, they’re doing this to save the school. Yeah, they may be having fun and enjoying themselves, but their main objective is to prevent the school from shutting down. That’s why they’ll take your training, no matter how difficult, and ask for more lessons!
You know how determined they are. You know how passionate they are. You know they want to save the school just as much as you do.
What will you do?
Don’t think about your position. Don’t think what you SHOULD do. Remove that stick.
What do you WANT to do?
She was just like Nico. She wanted to be part of the group. She wasn’t honest with herself.
Eri was so hellbent on saving the school on her own terms she thought their activities would be worse for the school.
But what do you know, showing how fun you’re having in school, showing how great it is to be with your friends, turned out to be more effective than your initial plans, Eri.
Damn, am I being hard on Eri? lol
I mentioned I still don’t like her, but I don’t hate her as much as before, knowing more about her side of the story eased it up a bit. Here’s hoping future episodes will change my mind!
