You know, I thought this was going to be a romantically-driven episode that revolves around Azusa's quest in finding her one true love with some Makoto manning it up on the side. Only one part of it was true, and it everything went a lot better than expected.
Azusa reinforces the Japanese stereotype of an older female but as expected from the iDOLM@STER writing department, they went ahead and actually gave her Alzheimer's disease. Pretty sad if you have dementia in your early 20's, but it would make for good comedy, which is why this week was such a riot and easily the funniest episode so far. If you think about it, she probably needs someone to marry not out of love, but because she actually needs a caretaker.

Here's the part where I spend more time talking about the character who interests me more this week - Makoto. She is what I call a fembro, and just like real bros, it doesn't take much to please since you can always just be yourself around them.
