Emotion Relation (キモチリレーション, Kimochi Rirēshon) is the 9th episode of Season 1 of the AKB0048 anime series.


AKB0048 decide to carry on with their guerilla concert, and enlist the aid of WOTA and their mecha to combat the DES. After witnessing the kenkyuusei inspire four little girls while out in the nearby town, Tsubasa decides to hold multiple concerts – with the kenkyuusei opening the performance in a separate location from the main members, splitting off the DES forces and scrambling their plans. Meanwhile, just as Kanata puts on Takamina’s uniform, Takamina herself demands to perform, arguing that she’ll show the audience all her passion as an idol. Tsubasa agrees, and Kanata ends up being impressed by Takamina’s display, showing no feelings of bitterness and being inspired to reach greater heights.




During the understudies' performance of Heart Gata Virus, Chieri's eyes turn brown and then later are blue once again.
