Titre original : I'm Being Scouted?
Takuma: "If you're looking for Ben-san, he's at the bar." Yui cuts to the chase. "Are you a scout? Working for the industry?" Takuma denies it. Yui says she had read in a magazine that when a scout finds a target, he will rent a room near the target's house, get along well with her friends and family so he can negotiate amicably for a debut. Takuma denies it still, "Have no idea what you're saying." Yui: "I want to debut! I want to be an idol in Tokyo! I don't wanna end in this countryside. What should I do now?" Takuma: "It's up to you. I mean, you say you're prepared and serious... If I WERE a person from the industry, which I am not... But, let's just say if I were, ok?... I would like to know what is the difference between you and all those idol wannabes, the kinda cute but pitiful girls out there?" At the Amanos, Natsu is told of the good news. Apparently the banker who approved of the loan happens to be a fan of Aki and he was on board the parlor train during the 25th anniversary. "We were able to borrow in Aki's name!" Haruko: "Wait! What do you mean? The loan is in Aki's name?" Katsue: "No! If we have Aki, customers will be coming in all the time, it means we'll be able to pay back the loan in no time."
