As Akari begins her job as a weather girl, Sumire decides she needs to find her own speciality too. However, she gets a throat cold just as she receives word of a shampoo girl audition, which seems to favor her beauty rather than her singing talent. Whilst wondering if she should really become a model instead of a singer, she learns of a CD debut audition being held on the same day as the shampoo audition. Worried about Sumire, Akari meets with her sister, who tells her that Sumire should make her own decisions. With Sumire still conflicted over which audition to go for, Akari brings back her sister's special herbal tea recipe to help Sumire with her cold. Encouraged by Akari's words, Sumire turns down the shampoo audition and instead goes for the singing audition, which she passes.
