|“||I think I'm the cutest amongst the members, but Momochi-senpai says the same thing, so it collided with Tsugunaga-san's cute character. But it's sad that a huge rival will no longer be around. I'll do my best to inherit that cuteness.||”|

The other party stayed with Tamborine Artists once Ozeki decided to leave, and she never received an apology.

Then in January 2018, her class won first place in their year for both conducting and accompaniment in the school music festival, and more importantly they won the championship grand prize.
