I Wanna Sing With Sophie! (あたし, そふぃさんと歌いたいワニ! Atashi, Sofi-san to Utaitai Wa Ni!) is the 5th episode of PriPara, and first aired on August 2nd, 2014.
After hearing about the upcoming trio tournament, Laala decides to get Sophie as their third member, but will that be possible if she can't even reach her?
Mirei interrupts the excited Laala to inform her that even if school is on break, their idol training will not be. She has calculated their tasks in order to determine the fastest way to becoming the next idol rank and has come up with a "oneninefour" jump plan.
Heading to PriPara the girls look over their possible audition choices when they notice how popular the Sunshine Watermelon Live is. A lot of people have been waiting for Sophie to make a guest appearance on it, and Laala asks Mirei if she wants to see it with her. Kuma remains unimpressed as they watch Sophie speak to the audience and put on a performance. While this happens Mirei remains serious but finds herself drawn to it while Laala appears very taken with it.
Afterwards the girls leave for home and continue discussing their PriPara activities. For her plan Mirei decides they will be entering the Shining Future Idol Grand Prix, which was the very same one Saints joined up and won, beginning their climb to the top. They will need to find another member though, and Laala suggests they ask Sophie. Mirei quickly shoots it down since they're not even near her Idol rank and she is too different than them, but Laala remains persistent, much to her confusion.
The next day Laala makes an attempt to reach her and calls out to her. But she is interrupted by Sophie's fan club and they refuse to let her speak or get any closer to Sophie. Laala doesn't really understand though, and Sadako, the leader of the group, tells Laala that if she wants to get any closer to Sophie she must write at least one-hundred fan letters first. Then she tells an oblivious Sophie everything is fine and they take off.
While Mirei attempts to convince Laala to quit, she refuses and trails after them into the city. At the flower shop, the store worker offers Sophie some roses for free, having been taken by her charm, but the others refuse to let him any closer. When Laala tries, Sadako makes Chanko attack her to keep her away. By now, Mirei tells Laala to just give up, but she continues on, taking to wearing a crocodile disguise next. At first the girls believe it to be real and while Sophie doesn't mind, the club think this is exactly why they need to be so protective. But they are all too frightened to do anything until Sadako reveals it to only be Laala. They walk off again and Mirei questions if Laala may be an idiot before taking off, only to stop and reveal where Sophie lives.
To her surprise Laala returns to the place she delivered the pizza the other day. She walks inside to try to find some help but gets distracted by the large fish tank nearby; only to find the pickled plum girl in it. Seeing as she fell into the tank, Laala piles many objects to reach her and attempts to take her back to her room. They head up to floor three, but then Laala wonders if the girl really meant floor nine and head up- but this isn't right either. Laala finds herself flustered and eventually they come to the very last floor when Cosmo, the girl Laala met the other day approaches. To her surprise, the two girls are sisters. There Laala also finds out that the room is number 3333.
As Laala makes an attempt to remember what she came to do, she is called by Kuma to be told that the audition entry will be closing soon, so she has to hurry up to PriPara. With no time left, Laala takes off.
Inside room 3333, Cosmo apologizes to the girl for bumping her into the room so roughly. Going on to reveal the pickled plum pizza girl is actually Sophie.
Laala transforms and quickly sits down with Mirei, revealing she was unable to get to Sophie, but she plans to keep trying. Mirei is unimpressed, then goes on to reveal their special dance practice for September the next day. She claims that with her calculations she wont have the time to go after Sophie anymore, but Laala remains stubborn. It is then Mirei recalls how the scout working with Sophie happens to be Usagi, someone Kuma knows but doesn't like. So she is sure that Sophie will be a bad choice in partner. It is practically destiny for the two of them to be apart, but still Laala refuses to give up, believing Kuma and Usagi could work out their differences. Kuma remains ignorant, claiming it's for the best and wishes the girls luck before leaving.
Afterwards, Laala is surprised to learn that Sophie hasn't showed up yet. She is disappointed, but when it is announced she is there, Laala and Mirei stand by to watch her perform. Laala sternly tells Mirei how she really wants Sophie to join them, and while Mirei is still displeased she expresses joy that Laala was able to actually convince her of reconsidering. However, she does believe they should rank up first.
- An idea of a three person unit consisting of Laala, Mirei, and Sophie is proposed.
- A trio tournament (Shining Future Idol Grand Prix) is revealed.
- Sophie is revealed to be the pickled plum customer and it is revealed that she eats them to change into her idol self.
