3. Episode 11 Recap
Episode 11 takes us back to the day when idol group Mystery Kiss was formed. Mitsuya was better than Rui in almost all aspects and was even offered to become the lead singer.
Rui couldn’t stand the fact that despite being a winner throughout her academic life, she lost to a newcomer in her professional life. She was blinded by jealousy and was ready to do anything to become the lead singer.
So, she called Mitsuya to her office all the way from Nerima. Not particularly to kill her, but to threaten her to step down from her position. However, I am sure Rui might have even killed her if she disagreed.
To Rui’s surprise, Mitsuya was already dead when she arrived at the office. Since she was the one who called her, it’s evident that she will be suspected before anyone else.
She opened up to Yamamoto and explained the situation to him. Yamamoto didn’t want the idol group to break so easily, so he disposed of Mitsuya’s dead body with Yano and Sekiguchi.
Not only that, Yamamoto hired another cat of the same breed to take Mitsuya’s position. This explains why Ichimura and Mitsuya were always wearing masks; it is to keep Mitsuya’s death a secret from the public.
Back in the present, Mystery Kiss has been exposed, and the police have found real Mitsuya’s dead body. They call for a press meeting to explain the situation to the fans.
Yamamoto publically accepts that someone else was performing as Mitsuya all this time. He also takes full responsibility for hiding information about Mitsuya’s absence and not being able to protect their team member in the first place.
He diverts the spotlight from them by saying that Mitsuya did some paid promotions on social media and got involved with some problematic fans. He says that he suspects them of Mitsuya’s death.
Meanwhile, Odokawa and Dobu’s Operation Odd taxi is about to begin. Will everything go according to Odokawa’s master plan? We have to wait for the next episode to find that out.

Kotokawa is a taxi driver who lives an ordinary life and as a slightly eccentric stranger who has no relatives nor any relations with other people, Kotokawa’s hobby is listening to Rakugo on the radio before going to bed.
Although, he does have a conversion with his customers – Kabasawa, a college student who wants a buzz, Shirakawa, a nurse who’s hiding something, comedian group Homo Sapiens, who isn’t selling well, and the city hoodlum Dobu.
The conversations with these people, which should not have meant much, lead to a girl who disappeared.
