“Little Bodda Bope SAGA”
Transcription: “Ritoru Parappo SAGA” (Japanese: リトルパラッポ SAGA)
Lily decides to mark Franchouchou’s national television debut by competing in the reality talent show Japanese Got Performance. One of the other competitors at the preliminaries is Light Oozora, a fellow child actor who condescendingly believes that he will secure an easy victory, and scorns Lily’s obsession with maintaining her cute, childish image. Both Lily and Light advance to the finals, where Light performs the same song that Lily intends to sing. Inspired by the rest of Franchouchou’s support, Lily reworks her piece into a scat rendition that captivates Light and the audience’s younger members. Although Light is declared the winner, he feels outperformed by Lily’s last-minute improvisational skills, but Lily encourages him to be proud of his achievements and parts with him on friendly terms. Following the show, Lily’s performance becomes a cultural phenomenon.
