    Does anyone know the overall story line to this? I'm particularly interested in Momoka's one - it gave me goosebumps and I don't even know what was going on!

    This is a REALLY rough summary of each episode. I'm not exactly sure but it does give a good idea.

    episode 1 - Shiorin
    The episode starts off with the girls hanging out and fooling around in a room (I think it's a makeshift lounge that they found and decided to use. I don't know). Kanako noticed that Shiorin was acting really quiet. Aarin suspects that Shiorin was thinking about a crush (even though she already knows). Kanako notices a charm and Momoka snatches it away to find it to read "safety (well-being) of one's family" which is probably given to Shiorin by her aunt. But the others see through it and still focuses on if Shiorin has a crush whose name was given by Aarin but Momoka seems to know the person. Aarin and Shiorin then talk about it with Aarin acting as help to get some information out of Momoka who apparently knows of the boy whether they are either friends, classmates or aquaintences. Shiorin is confident that Yoshida-kun (her crush), likes her back but is still a bit unsure whether to confess or not since she's not completely positive. The next day, Shiorin is seen with a love charm that is hidden from Kanako and Aarin who each gave her a love charm to her for good luck, giving her 3 times the support from God to help with her crush on Yoshida-kun. But they wonder if it's too much pressure for God to give so much support over a crush that Shiorin is still hesitant about. aarin soon texts Momoka asking if Yoshida-kun has a girlfriend or is loking for one and gets an answer that he is currently single but not looking for one just yet but still gives Shiorin hope. She soon finds out what shrine Yoshida-kun visits (Momoka mentions that in the text as well) and asks if God can give her support if she prays there as well. She then meets with Aarin at a cafe again after visiting the shrine and they talk about the possibilities that can happen for Shiorin and Yoshida-kun. the episode then ends with someone entering the Cafe and is hinted that it could be Yoshida-kun.

    Not sure what to say about this episode. But as the first episode, pretty impressive for the acting :D

    episode 2 - Aarin
    This episode starts off in the field at the school where Aarin is sitting further away from the others who were talking about something Reni's moping about (I don't know what it is, probably a crush, but Momotamai are teasing her big time XD). Momoka walks up to the youngest MomoClo member and asks her what's wrong since she seems upset. She then asks about a present that Aarin is planning on giving to her older sister. Reni asks if it was a birthday present but Aarin says no. Shiorin guessed a wedding present and Aarin asked how she knew. Shiorin then says that she heard it from Kanako who heard it from Momoka who was the only person that knew of Aarin's situation. She then feels guilty but Aarin says it's okay. But Aarin feels upset because it meant her sister will be moving away soon and won't be able to spend much time with her sister like she used to. Reni, who was at the side researching on what type of present to give to the bride, suggests that Aarin would give her sister a blue-colored present. It might be to lift the mood of the youngest member but the others are hesitant about Reni's way of cheering Aarin up. As she walks home to school, Aarin is approached from behind by Momoka who had to do some after-school activities. They joke around a little until Momoka brings up Aarin's sister again, making Aarin a little more hesitant since she still doesn't have an idea on what to get for her sister and reveals how she still hasn't matured that much to show to her sister that she's grown up. This is then shown when Aarin is sitting in the cafe remembering the time she visited the cafe with her older sister, asking what it was like to drink coffee but doesn't like the bitter taste of her sister's cappucinno and the coffee in her coffee float which was ordered by her sister to help her combine the sweetness of ice cream and the bitterness of coffee despite her sense of taste. Aarin then returns home after receiving a text from her sister and after dinner, she watches her parents having fun with her sister and her sister's fiance at the dinner table but is still upset. After retreating back into her room, her sister walks in and asks her if anything is bothering her, and then talk about how their parents were acting during dinner around her fiance. But she then confesses at how worried she is about Aarin who is upset and wants her to be happy, even offering to buy her some cream puffs. The next day after school, Aarin finds two elementary school students who were sisters and sees how much weight is put into an older sibling's shoulders when they're with their younger siblings and want to take care of them. Hoping to show that she can try to grow up, Aarin tries to drink coffee again but is still hesitant about the taste. She then texts her sister to not worry about her and even managed to conquer the taste of a cappucinno.
    Very sweet episode for Aarin as the youngest member trying to be mature as well as showing some sibling bonding in an episode for a drama.

    episode 3 - Momoka
    The girls hang out in their private lounge again and Aarin notices that Momoka seems a bit bothered by something. I think she's in the track and field team and something happened. Shiorin then says a remark about something which leads to an argument between Aarin and Shiorin. Momoka decides to leave but Reni follows her out of worry and decides to talk to her since she hasn't been so cheerful lately. Momoka then talks about how disadvantage is against the others but Reni tries to give her some moral support. The two are then seen at the school library with Reni working at the counter and Momoka decides to check out a book. But as she checks it out, Reni tells her that she already took it out of the library recently, making both of them confused. Reni decides to look into it when she goes through the workers list to see who was on shift when it was checked out. Later on, Momoka is seen reading and Reni is reshelving books. Reni tells Momoka that the student working at the time said it was definitely Momoka who checked the book out of the library and didn't mistake the student for her. Reni then theorizes that the only possible way it could've happened would be a doppelganger since Momoka doesn't have any siblings. Reni then says that there is always one person in the world that looks exactly like you and is possibly evil. Reni asks what Momoka would do but Momoka has no idea what to do so Reni suggests that if Momoka was somewhere and Reni sees her in the library again, she would call her and tell her about the doppelganger and approach the doppelganger. The next day, Momoka is walking home from school but Reni calls and asks of her whereabouts. Momoka then realizes that the look-alike is in the school and runs back to school after telling Reni to not go anywhere and make sure the doppelganger doesn't leave. Momoka then runs to the second floor of the school library and finds the doppelganger in front of the windows and chases after her into the accessible roof of the school. She questions why the doppelganger exists and why she's trying to replace Momoka by using her name. She starts to yell at the doppelganger who never spoke or answered the girl and the doppelganger climbs onto the railing. Momoka was about to stop her from doing anything but is stopped by Reni who apparently followed her onto the roof, not wanting her to get hurt or do anything drastic. After hearing Momoka yelling and screaming at her, the doppelganger jumps off the roof. Momoka soon feels guilty because she thought that her yelling and screaming made the look-alike kill herself. Reni then looks over the railing to see if there was a body but finds nothing, not even a running figure. She tells Momoka in hopes to cheer her up but Momoka continues to cry and repeatedly apologizes for making the doppelganger disappear because of her hatred towards her look-alike. Where did the doppelganger disappear to? No one will ever know...
    Really good acting on Momoka's part for acting as two different characters, one being really sadistic and the other being true to her own character.

    episode 4 - Reni
    This episode starts off with Shiorin, Aarin and Momoka sitting in the auditorium eating snacks and Aarin asks about the doppelganger situation and Momoka pouts, saying that everything is taken care of. Aarin and Shiorin then wonder where Reni and Kanako went off to and Momoka tells them that Reni is working on a new art piece with Kanako as her model, making her two young friends shocked. Reni is then seen working on her art project that involves painting a portrait and has Kanako as the model who is really bored due to just sitting there, making Reni a little upset. During a visit to a store to buy art supplies, Kanako points out an art exhibit in an art museum that features works from students but Reni says she's not submitting anything. As Reni continues to look through the paintbrushes, Kanako notices a cute boy from a different school (he's wearing a gakuran instead of a dress shirt with slacks and a blazer like the boys at MomoClo's school) and points him out to Reni since they might be close in age. Reni becomes flustered and chastises Kanako for pointing him out to her and suggesting weird things. Apparently during a lunch break in school, Kanako brings up the boy after Reni thanks her for modeling for her painting. Shiorin then interrupts the two, (takes a few french fries while pouting about not having been treated to lunch) and gives Reni a love charm to support her crush and reveals that Kanako told her about it which gets Reni flustered again. Reni visits the store again in hopes of running into him but decides to leave after a while and accidentally knocks over an easel, only to have the same boy from before help her pick it up and she becomes happy at how he noticed her and talked to her (even if it's just one word lol) and she continues her painting in a good mood, making Kanako giddy about it, happy for her older friend to have a crush. After the day's session, she finds him walking home from school and hopes to talk to him but then finds him with another girl, leaving her a bit heartbroken and she couldn't finish her painting which was almost complete. Kanako manages to cheer her up to get her to finish the painting and try to get her mind off of it. On their walk home, Kanako continues to lift Reni's spirits by pointing out her good points (lik her cuteness) and suggests that Reni visits the art exhibit, wondering if the boy submitted something since he was probably working on his own painting. And so, Reni visits the exhibit and looks through the high school section before finding the boy's (I don't know how she knows his name. She just does even though they don't go to the same school). Turns out, he did a painting of her as you can tell by the smile (on both her face and on the painting) and the eggplant charm on her bag as well as her uniform. DAY MADE for Reni. She likes him, he probably likes her back. Her day was made! XD
    A nice episode for Reni to work on. Maybe a shout-out to her solo songs lol. Also adds in how they would add in a skill the girls aren't that familiar with (even though the painting was possibly done by someone else :)) )

    episode 5 - Kanako
    Episode starts out in the school gym with Reni, Momoka, SHiorin and Aarin. They wonder why Kanako went home early and why she seemed upset since she's usually cheery. Shiorin then takes out two movie tickets for "Rise of the Planet of the Dogs" and asks if Aarin would like to go with her. Momoka asks how she got the tickets and Shiorin tells her that Kanako got them from Momoka and gave them to Shiorin. Momoka then tells her that it's possible Kanako's upset because she gave the tickets to Shiorin, making the others curious. This then takes us back a few days. Kanako is seen doing some homework as she listens to the radio in her bedroom and the advice program is one where they read letters and reply to them. After hearing the last letter, Kanako thinks about Shiorin. The next day, Kanako and Shiorin are early to school and have drawings of themselves on the chalkboard and have a little friendship bonding. In the hallway later in the day, Kanako overhears a conversation about her crush (I think... I think because they mentioned his name...). Momoka then sneaks up on her so they can walk home together. Kanako tells Momoka the name of her crush and feels awkward but wants to make sure Momoka tells no one so Momoka gives Kanako the two tickets o the movie. Kanako is then feel pressured because she's supposed to give it to her crush, Seiyo-kun to ask him out on a date. The next day, she is still pondering about the date until Shiorin comes in and finds the tickets. She teases Kanako thinking that it's for a date but Kanako quickly denies and wonders on who to give the tickets to even though it's for her date. Shiorin, who is still unaware of Kanako's situation, asks if she could have the tickets instead, even saying "Please give me" in English since she wanted to see the movie as well. Kanako gives in and gives Shiorin the tickets, the younger girl not knowing the effects it had on Kanako who lost her chance on going on a date with Seiyo-kun and the leaders starts crying after class because she lost that chance. This takes us back to present time since Shiorin and Momoka were telling Aarin and Reni what happened. Shiorin said she couldn't help it and none of them were able to contact Kanako who were ignoring their texts. Kanako is seen walking home from school and shouts how upset she is before smiling it off. Reni then tells them that she was able to get through to Kanako but Kanako already went home and the others become worried again. Reni suggests that Shiorin would text to apologize for what happened but Kanako texts back saying that everything's fine and they shouldn't worry about it and Shiorin should keep the tickets. Momoka then feels upset because Kanako is hiding her true feelings from them but Shiorin heads home and Reni texts Kanako again telling her to not have her mother worry about her safety and hurry home since the others are worried as well before adding on how Shiorin is up to something and nothing will stop her. Shiorin is seen walking home as she's trying to get a hold of Seiyo-kun who is apparently going to be involved in her plans. Kanako then arrives home and goes to listen to the radio for her usual program and turns out that the letter they're reading is addressed to her from Shiorin. She apologizes for what happens and wants to make up for it at the movie theater so they can watch the movie together since Kanako wasn't able to ask out Seiyo-kun. On the day of the movie viewing, Kanako is seen waiting for Shiorin who doesn't show up at all and goes into the theater to take her seat. She then realizes that she was sitting next to someone to be Seiyo-kun and Kanako becomes flustered. The scene then shifts to the Cafe where Aarin asked how she got Seiyo-kun to go to the movies and Shiorin tells the rest of MomoClo that she had to beg him into going. She checks her watch and notices the movie should be starting soon and Reni congratulates her for pulling off such a strange plan. Kanako is seen watching the movie with Seiyo-kun but no words were exhanged and she sneezes, ending the episode.
    Really good comeback for Shiorin to act like a good friend and set the two up after ruining it at first. Too bad for Kanako for feeling awekward about it XD

    And then there are bloopers. All good? I had to rewatch every episode to get everything written

    no problem! But some details aren't perfect and I got most out of context rather than literal translations because my Japanese is really bad.

    Oh wow I wasn't expecting such an in-depth summary, thanks so much!

    I got goosebumps again reading Momoka's summary ^^ do you know if they came up with their own storylines themselves or were they following someone else's script?

    no problem! and I think they were following a certain script but the writers probably made sure their characters stay true to their nature.
