That Changes Who I Am is the seventh episode of THE iDOLM@STER anime. It originally aired on August 19, 2011.


Iori humiliates herself on live television when she forces an interviewer at the Minase estate to focus on her rather than ask about her father and older brothers. The Producer reprimands her actions, but Iori ignores his advice. Yayoi invites Iori and Hibiki to her home to have dinner with her five younger siblings where Iori learns about the life of a "commoner" and gets to know Yayoi's brother and the eldest boy, Chousuke, who wants to help his sister. During dinner, Chousuke hits his brother Kouji for trying to take his food, for which Yayoi tells him to apologize, but he angrily talks back to her and runs away. Worried about Chousuke, Yayoi and Hibiki begin searching for him around the town and the Producer later intervenes after Iori calls him. Iori finds Chousuke in the storage shed as she remembers that the place is just like where she usually hid when she fought with her brothers. She now understands what it feels like to be a younger sibling and that Chousuke just wanted to help his sister, and she advises him that instead of just complaining and running away, he should be bold, confront his sister, and tell the truth. Inspired by Iori's speech, Chousuke reunites with Yayoi and apologizes. As the Producer, Hibiki and Iori go home, he thanks Iori for calling him for help. The next morning, Yayoi learns to her surprise that Chousuke wants to become more reliable at home.
