In the latest episode, Aqua sees Akane’s prowess as an asset, but not without some toying with emotions.

Oshi no Ko Episode 8 Recap, Spoilers, and What to Expect in Episode 9

Akane has fully regained her footing on the reality show by slipping into a role, using her talents as an actress to shine through on the screen. This shocks everybody with her infectious charisma, truly channeling Ai, but there are still moments where the mask slips off.

Meanwhile, Kana grows resentful of Aqua’s connection to Akane. In a moment that helped illustrate her lovelorn feelings, the show changed the color palette from a slightly overexposed brightness back to reality when Aqua found her. It’s a brilliant moment that showcases how much clarity and warmth she feels around him, and of course, he doesn’t reciprocate those feelings, at least until after the show wraps.

But Aqua ends the show by kissing Akane and establishing themselves as a couple by convenience while hoping to turn up new leads on Ai’s past. In the final moments, we finally see MEM-Cho finally getting focused, as it leads out of the Dating Reality Show arc and into the First Concert arc, where Aqua recruits her for the new B-Komachi group.
