Smile at the Sky♡Team Name Announced! is the 13th episode of PriPara, and it first aired on September 27th, 2014.
Tensions and drama arise for the new team as they try to hurry and come up with a Unit Name in time for their Special Live. Laala has to make an Autograph, while Mirei feels isolated from the other two due to their bond, and Sophie tries to handle things while in Fancy Mode.
Sophie meets Laala and Mirei in the PriPara world as the latter comments on Sophie’s hair, to which she replies that she has been doing her hair by herself without the help of Cosmo, who had to resist the urge of pampering her out of habit. Sophie's Fanclub come to thank Laala and Mirei for helping protect Sophie’s smile, but warn that they will not forgive them should they do anything rude to her. They are interrupted by an excited Kuma who announces that as the winner of the Sparkling Grand Prix, they will perform a special live, stating that they have to come up with a team name by then and that Laala has to come up with an autograph.
Later, outside of PriPara, Laala is thinking about the team name while going to meet Mirei and Sophie, but she is interrupted by Gloria, who smelled the Friends Tickets of Mirei and Sophie she was holding. Laala hides them behind the statue of the principal in order to escape.
Arriving to the meeting in a rush, Laala receives her 192th warning ticket courtesy of Mirei for violating Paprika Academy Rule 1115 (Always show up 10 minutes early) and talks about how she is getting close to getting the 'Golden Ticket’ status which she will receive if she reaches 200 warning tickets. Laala makes an attempt to change the subject by complimenting Sophie's hair for a better arrangement then last time, only to be scolded by Mirei who reminds her that they still have to come up with a team name and that they still have practice to do in the afternoon.
To their surprise, Sophie asks them what a practice is and Mirei explains it to her, with Sophie claiming she never practiced before. Sadako reveals that Sophie is a first-rate genius who never practiced once, as she can perfectly remember any song simply by looking at the score and intuitively dance in sync with the music without a hitch. Mirei states that she admires her talent but also adds that a true genius is one who can keep practicing again and again, which causes tension between her and Sophie’s fanclub; who took offense to Mirei's statement, seeing it as ordering their idol around, despite being 'inferior' to her.
However, Sophie states that she would like to try practicing, which causes the fanclub to instantly change their stance. Gloria once again happens to sniff out the friend tickets and Mirei explains to Sophie that Elementary-level students of Paprika Academy are forbidden to participate in PriPara, a fact that the latter did not know. She hugs Laala and tells her how she feels sorry for her, but Mirei tells Laala to hurry up as Gloria is closing in on their location.
Later in PriPara, the team’s first joint practice begins. Sophie feels a little nervous and begins to attempt to practice while in Fancy Mode, stating that she’ll eat her Red Flash before the live, after being asked by Mirei. Cosmo, who watched her sister practice with all she has, has also inspired to do her best as well and she starts scribbling away in a notebook. But Sophie is unable to last very long, due to her low blood pressure while in Fancy Mode. She rapidly collapses due to fatigue but states she only needs to rest.
Near the end of the practice session, Kuma assembles the trio to ask what team name they should have, Mirei suggest PriPri Girls while Sophie proposes Red Flash Squad and a disagreement between the two emerges with the fanclub taking her side. Laala seemingly shows favoritism towards Sophie’s suggestion, which makes Mirei feel upset about things not matching up with her calculations and feeling isolated from the team.
Sometime later, Laala still hasn’t figured out what signature to use and is at the end of her rope when Sophie comes in and creates an elaborate one based off her smile, which she adores. Mirei shows reservations based on how complex it is though, and states her calculations are unwanted after Laala and Kuma ultimately approve of it. Meganee then comes in to announce that the special live is starting soon and Kuma remembers that they haven’t decided on a team name yet and starts panicking as he takes off.
Mirei strolls off behind Kuma, trying her best to hide her frustration when Kuma, absorbed in his panic-induced state bumps into a young idol with thick glasses named Hanana. As the girls exchange apologies, Laala and Sophie trail behind Mirei before spotting Hanana's glasses. Laala picks up and returns them to the flustered girl, who realizes who she is standing before and starts to get excited. Laala thanks her for her compliments and offers to trade Friends Tickets, which surprises Hanana even further. She feels she is unworthy of them as she is only a new idol who hasn’t even performed a live and has convinced herself that nobody would want to trade Tickets with her.
Upon Laala’s request to show Hanana that this isn't true, Mirei makes calculations using a sample of 10,000 girls who traded tickets, she concludes that 99% of idols feel better after trading Friends Tickets than before. Sophie agrees as she pulls out her PriTicket Bag and shows the first Friends Tickets she traded with her fanclub, which moves them and prompts Sadako to ask Chanko to show the very first Friends Ticket she received from Sophie, which she states is her treasure. The strong bond between Sophie and her fanclub prompts Mirei to state that their meeting was a miracle, to which they agree and goes to add that how she, Laala and Sophie met with Hanana was also nothing short of a miracle- which deeply touches her.
Before exchanging tickets, Hanana claims the trio are a good team. With Laala’s bright personality, Mirei’s calculating nature, and Sophie’s sensibility, they are a good match for each other as well. She also believes she is now an even bigger fan of theirs and happily cherishes the tickets exchanged.
Following the meeting with Hanana, Mirei apologizes to Sophie for her behavior earlier, saying she acted arrogantly when she was the most experienced member of the team but Sophie states she thinks her calculating side is amazing and asks them to call her Sophie without honorifics/suffixes which they do awkwardly and in their conversation quickly come with their new team name SoLaMi♡SMILE, the first part based off the first letter of their first name that Sophie came up with and the other part conceived by Mirei.
As the team and the fanclub head into the changing room, they are met with Cosmo who presents them with a new Cyalume Coord for the newly named team. Laala mentions she liked the previous Cyalume Coord she wore however, and would enjoy wearing both at once and Cosmo offers to make them Non-Cyalume versions of that Coord for them to wear regularly.
During the performance, Usagi vents his spite at the trio for the humiliation he suffered but overhears Dorothy also swearing to have their revenge for having been fired- just because she was a twin.
Elsewhere, a girl, Shion Todo is playing a game of Go and quickly overwhelms her opponent to earn her 5th consecutive student championship victory. After being asked if she will aim for a 10th consecutive victory as a 7th grader, something that has never been achieved before, Shion states that she is done with Go professionally. No one would be able to match her even in 10 years and subsequently announces her retirement, stating that she will challenge another path, surprising everyone present at the competition.
While wandering around, Shion notices SoLaMi Smile’s special live on a large screen and overhears girls talking about how the team had high chances of become Divine Idols. Interested by the prospect of idol singing, she decides that she will ‘take down’ SoLaMi♡SMILE.
