Try conversing with your eyes. You’ll want to talk soon enough.

Mana spots Touya and she wasn’t pleased. Immediately she walks off and takes the taxi Touya arrived in away. Meanwhile, Yayoi manages to buy the negatives from her stalker. Misaki on the other hand, meets Tamaru at a cafe. He wanted her to write an article about Touya’s affair with Yuki’s manager Yayoi and shows her photos. Misaki refuses but offers to be his girlfriend again if he doesn’t publish such an article. Just as Tamaru was getting excited, Menou shows up. It seems they knew each other from long ago and Tamaru seemed very anxious and surprised to see her. She offers him something more exciting to write about and together, the four of them go off to a studio set to take some sensual pictures of Menou. Just like Misaki, she did not want Tamaru to write about Touya’s secret and quickly shoos him away. Menou claims to be a childhood friend. Later that evening, Mana drops by to visit Touya’s father but is mistakened to be Yuki because his condition was getting worse. Touya was spending the night at the cabin with Haruka.

Episode 11
“Time won’t resolve the thorns in our hearts for us.
For it only puts a label of oblivion on them.”

Eiji explains how both Rina and Yuki must fill their venues to stand a chance of beating the Sakura group by surpassing their mobilisation value. As they both go about their rehearsals, Yayoi and Rina talk about how they are both taking action for Yuki’s best interests. However, something was bothering Rina too and she has problems concentrating on her own rehearsals. As Touya goes about acting as Rina’s assistant, he also wonders what he was doing when all he did was stand around pretending to be her spectators. He also couldn’t get Yuki off his mind because every time he saw Rina performing, he was reminded of Yuki’s first concert that she will be performing soon. The stress was building. Meanwhile, both Mana and Haruka were also clearing up their feelings towards Touya.
