The Labyrinth of Reunion Invitation to the Ball

The Danger Zone is the fifth episode of the Skip Beat! anime series.


Kyoko begins her work as a Love-Me Member. Because she is driven by self-satisfaction rather than the thought of others she only receives 10 points for her first job. Her next job is with LME idol Ruriko Matsunai in which she assists her for a on-site acting shoot. Kyoko goes above and beyond for Ruriko to the point where she badly injures herself however it seems like her efforts aren't fully appreciated.

Episode Summary

Kyoko speaks with the President who asks if she believes she can love others. She says no, but insists that even though she can't feel love now, she wants to be able to gain back that important "human trait" that she lost. He agrees to let her in and gives her stamps and a notebook, saying if she does a good job she will get points, which will get her closer to her debut. Kyoko leaves the president pondering why she lost the ability to love, and finds a pink jumpsuit with the 'Love-Me' logo on the front and back, which was her new working attire.

The manager of the singing section comes and tells Sawara and Kyoko that he had heard about the 'Love-Me' section and has her first job. All the contestants eliminated in the recent audition vented their anger by spitting out their chewing gum on the ground, so Kyoko must clean it. Kyoko is annoyed at having to do such a job but she cleans up the gum. However now this a patch of super clean floor with the surrounding dirty. Ever a perfectionist, Kyoko decides she must scrub clean and wax the entire area. She just finishes when L.M.E. workers come and slip on the floor because it is too waxy. Sawara gives her 10 points saying she needs to try harder.

She sits on the stairs sulking when someone knees her in the head. It turns out to be Ruriko, a L.M.E. idol who decides she has a job for Kyoko. Ruriko hires Kyoko to protect her while they are driving in the car up to an acting job. The car breaks down and Kyoko and Ruriko must walk.

After five minutes Ruriko states that she can't walk anymore so Kyoko starts to carry her up the mountain. Kyoko then falls and sprains her ankle and Ruriko walks the last few feet on her own. She gets to the shooting location, but forgets to get someone to help Kyoko. Kyoko is left lying there in the middle of the road, not being able to move when Ren finds her. He presses on Kyoko's sprained ankle and finds that it was badly injured. He scoops her up and walks to the set.
