In an attempt to fix themselves after the fighting they had last episode, Wake Up, Girls! (and their managers) decide to take an overnight trip to Kaya’s aunt’s inn. Thanks to the location, Kaya, the oldest one in the group, finally gets some focus as she reveals to Mayu her reasons for joining the group, and why she left her hometown. Oddly, the show is a little vague about the details: a fishing village that’s rebuilding, her town was obviously hit by the tsunami, but they never directly say that, and though Kaya mentions that she “ran away” from the town, she never specifies what she was running from. But, we see that she has a similar reason to Mayu for joining the group — she wanted to make herself happy.
