As the pieces of the puzzle come together and the layers of the riddle slowly peel back, it becomes apparent that everything Izuru, Asagi, Kei, Tamaki and Suruga have encountered are interconnected to a greater extent than they ever imagined.

Instead they find Yui Hirasawa, who's looking for a club to join and who's never held a guitar in her life. But when Yui does pick up a beat-up six-string, it feels good in her hands, and it doesn't take long to understand that maybe she's finally found a place where she belongs. Because you can't stop the music when four girls share a dream, even if it's something as crazy as someday playing at the famous Budokan.
