Orihime and Tiara announce the beginning of the Aikatsu8 Elections, in which fans will show their support for their favorite idols, and the eight most popular idols will form a special unit known as Aikatsu8. They declare that the Elections are not limited to idols from Starlight and DreAca, so Mizuki and Mikuru from WM are eligible to participate. To mark the start of the Elections, Starlight Academy will be holding a live concert. Ichigo, Aoi, Ran, Seira, and Kii meet up at Cafe Vivo to discuss their PR plans for the Elections, with their fans submitting them ideas. Everybody has chosen their plan except for Aoi, who finds it hard to choose one idea over the other. Ichigo returns home temporarily where she learns how much Raichi has grown over the years. Aoi receives a PR idea from a fan right before the deadline, which she eventually discovers is from Raichi. The plan, called the "Go Go! Aoi Project", involves broadcasting Aoi running from Starlight Academy to the concert location. Ran and Ichigo support Aoi by running alongside her, with Raichi and his soccer team acting as Aoi's "bodyguards". Raichi begins to slow down near the end, but is carried by his teammates. Aoi, Ichigo, and Ran successfully run towards the concert location, where they perform with Yurika and Otome.
