In episode 4, Fuuka continues to get calls from her mother. Kukuru tells her grandfather that she wants to restart the touch pool facility, where the visitors are allowed to have physical contact with the animals. Her grandfather gives his consent. Later that day, Kukuru announces her plans to the rest of the staff. Different employees are put in charge of different activities. Fuuka is designated to be the attendant, which will involve interacting with visitors and giving them information on various sea creatures. This prompts Fuuka to learn more about the biology and the eating habits of the animals they have at the aquarium.

Fuuka becomes terrified after finding a large, bearded man inside a closed room at the aquarium. He is later revealed to be Gouden Gousuke, one of the employees there. He happens to recognize Fuuka and later tells Karin, Kai, and Tsukimi about it. They become curious and ask Kukuru why an idol will quit her job and come to work at an aquarium. Kukuru realizes that she doesn’t know the answer either.

There, Fuuka realizes that she is working at Gama Gama because she likes Kukuru and wants to help her achieve her dreams. The episode ends with the arrival of Fuuka’s mother.
