Titre original : I'm Being Scouted?
While waiting Aki remembers to get Yui's autograph for the store. "Once you get famous, it'll be too hard to get one. Please write 'To Ama Cafe...' and 'Your mamebu is delicious'." Yui writes it even if she hasn't tasted it. Aki thanks her for "making me your friend even though I'm so self-centered and noisy. I've been annoying right?" Yui says that SHE should be the one who says that. "Because in the internet we are rivals, right? I stole your man, too... If you hadn't had a big heart, I would have received a few punches. Well, actually I doubt whether I can see Taneichi-senpai anyway... Love is prohibited among members of AmeJo." As Futomaki has explained in an interview: "Because, try to imagine. Who would pay for an idol's CDs and collectibles if she is already going steady with someone? She is 'going steady' with every one of her 100,000 or million fans. That's what being an idol is. Well, if she doesn't get caught, then it's good." Yui says that when she was small, she wanted to be somebody different from the usual ambitions of girls. "Cameron Diaz or a 'whirlwind' kind of woman like in movies 'Tomb Raider' and 'Resident Evil.' When I was in 8th Grade I said, 'I want to be an idol.' My mom finally smiled... Now I understand. My parents basically approve and support what I'm doing but... I think it's time. Internet idol, parlor train, local station reporter... I accomplished everything I could do here. Since there are people who come all the way here to meet me... Maybe it's okay for me to feel a little confident about myself. I want to meet those people's expectations.. Am I wrong?" Aki says no. She knows Yui belongs in the limelight ever since the first time she saw her on the train. Especially when she rode on the float during the Autumn Festival.
