Is "Brilliance" Even Possible? (キラめきのありか, Kirameki no Arika) is the fifth episode of Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight. It originally aired in Japan on August 9, 2018.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Mahiru becomes increasingly dejected and jealous as Karen’s bond with Hikari strenghtens. Karen is spurred on with new determination, but where will this leave Mahiru?[1]

Summary[edit | edit source]

Mahiru is worried that Karen is not at their room early in the morning, only to find out she and Hikari made it to morning practice before anyone else did. Karen calls out to Maya, saying she will catch up to her. All of the girls notice Karen's change in attitude and wonder if Hikari is responsible. Mahiru gets a package from her family, which includes a letter from her grandmother and a DVD recording of an interview that hails Mahiru as the star of her small town after being admitted to Seisho. Mahiru witnesses Shion and Kiriko talking to a reluctant Nana about how Karen and Hikari could possibly be the leads in the next Starlight, which makes Mahiru have a nightmare about being left behind by them. Mahiru faces off against Karen in the a revue duel where she expresses her feelings of being worthless without her, but Karen manages to convince her that she can shine all on her own.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The English distribution of this episode is titled "Is "Shine" Even Possible?"; however, the word Sentai Filmworks translated as "shine", kirameki, is translated elsewhere as "brilliance". As such, the wiki has slightly edited the title to clarify that the two words are referring to the same concept.
