The open auditions continue with Kyoko revealing an odd talent and impressing the judges, only to fail later in the auditions when she doesn't show the appropriate response during the acting portion. Defeated and upset Kyoko seems to be ready to give up on defeating Sho.

But the President of LME saw Kyoko's performance and has something special in mind for Kyoko.

Watch the episode.

Episode Notes
The original episode title is Kaketeru Kimochi:

Cultural References

Daikon is a Japanese radish that is characterized by a thick carrot-like shape. Unlike other radishes, it is greenish at the top, tapering to white. It is common in Japanese cuisine and has a mild flavor.

In the episode Kyoko displays her mastery of the art of Katsuramuki, cutting Daikon into one continuous, paper-thin strip. Gourmet chefs use this technique to create roses for garnishments and it is extremely difficult to do.

An Emotion She Lacks:

This refers to Kyoko's less then favorable views on love. In this episode it is explained that the need to feel loved is a crucial emotion for would-be celebrities. Being loved and loving ones fans is necessary to stay in the business. When Shou broke her heart, Kyoko cut herself off from that emotion. Love is the emotion she lacks.
