The Multi-Tasking Crisis

In this Episode, I am now facing my own multi-tasking crisis in my SIF gaming ever. With Events are occurring on both Sides, I do not know which one needs to be finish first. If I leave the other Side to grind for the other Side, I might lose my ranking position on that Side! Oh no, and it seems that I shall be needing to sacrifice my rankings on that Side in order to give way to that Side! Starting on March 20, I must make that decision!

Let us go now to the Episode proper! Let the 36th Episode of School Idol Festival Journal Log begin!


Some of the headlines and highlights in the School Idol Universe has been encountered in the past weekend, and this week! Please do read them below! And we also got a weekend Event coming up!

SIFACHM PS4 Game Out Next Week!

At long last, the awaited PS4 game, the LoveLive! School Idol Festival ~after School ACTIVITY~ Wai-Wai! Home Meeting!!, or abbreviated as SIFACHM, is coming out next week, on this coming Wednesday, March 24, 2021! For people who have PS4 or PS5* at their homes, you can download the free base version for free! The free base version includes at least 8 songs (4 songs per School Idol faction, µ’s and Aqours), and two costumes (one for each for µ’s and Aqours) plus one costume for Saint Snow. Meanwhile, the copies of this game, as well as some DLC add-ons, can be purchased via with your local game store, or from the PlayStation Store itself!

Somehow, some incoming campaigns might be appearing in the LLSIF rhythm game in all branches, so better watch out, if there is any!

* Might there be a backwards compatibility, since Sony has announced it at their blog.

Happy Birthday, Umi Sonoda!

µ’s Side. Today, I am going to celebrate Umi Sonoda’s birthday, though it’s been late for several days! At least, I got some message to write with, rather than nothing.

Dear Umi Sonoda,

You are indeed an excellent individual who is skilled at archery. Also, you are somehow a ‘coach’ of the µ’s group, wherein you shall give them proper training and scolding, if they had done anything wrong. You, Honoka, and Kotori, are indeed best friends of your childhood. Cherish well your moments with them when you are still alive!

Happy birthday, dear Umi Sonoda, a member of Lily White, and µ’s, the Legendary School Idol Group!

Later: Aqours Livestream!

Aqours Side. Later evening, Japan time, there will be an Aqours livestream, which shall take place! It shall be held starting at 7 PM JST (UTC+9). Rikako Aida, Arisa Komiya, and Shuka Saito, shall be hosting the stream!

They shall be talking about the details of their upcoming 5th Anniversary Single, their upcoming 5th Anniversary Live on May, and some other stuff! Be sure to tune in to that upcoming live stream in order to get some updates!

And that’s it for the headlines! Of course, we are about to face the true crisis or conflict, as some Events are indeed colliding coincidentally at the same time! Please do read below the highlights and happenings in the School Idol Festival rhythm game of all sides!


Right now, as we are resting for the next Event tomorrow, we are about to enter the coming conflict! What is this? Also, the next Aqours Event type is going to be announced later at 3pm JST (UTC+9)! Please go to your in-game notifications on the mentioned time to find out! Going back, what were the highlights encountered, so far?

Round 27 Challenge Festival: Our Hot Pot Party (Final)

Finally, this Event has been finished, and I can rest now a bit. But not until tomorrow because another upcoming Event shall start in just less than 24 hours. Of what I had said before, this is going to be a multi-tasking crisis, for me, until this month ends!

For this concluded Event, I had finished with a Tier 2-1 standing. Time shall always come for me, and I can eventually get a Tier 1-1 finish on the µ’s Side!

Round 5 Live Arena: Otome Ranman – The First Spring

So right now, we are in the fifth round of the Live Arena Event, wherein I must need to achieve at least Expert or Royal Expert Category in order to win the UR Ai Miyashita! As from March 17, before this Episode was published, I had completed only 20 Special Sessions. Will I make it to the 50 and prevail? Find out as I am going to give you the final highlights of it next week! Look forward into it!

And right now, an ongoing Event is also happening in the Global Side! Guess what? It is also of an Aqours type of Event! Please do read more to continue! And to mention, they are one of the remaining Events and campaigns to be finished before the upcoming server merge shall happen sometime next month, or even May!

Round 42 Score Match: Fall is for Aqours and Sports

The previous title in the JP Side is called as the ‘Aqours and the Autumn of Sports’, and that’s the sub-title used in the ongoing Round 42 Score Match Event today. The Event details were already given in the last week’s Episode!

For the highlights on this one, I ain’t going to be serious this time around. But then, instead, I have to do some other things and finish them as soon as possible. This is going to be the first Aqours Event in the Global Side in which my Tier 1-1 streak is meant to be broken, soon. But then, I have to keep playing in order to get some rewards in which they can help to strengthen my teams up!

But still, I am eager to slack off in this Event. Will it be a Tier 2-1 finish for me soon enough? Find out as I am going to give the final results of this one next week!

For the LLSIF Tip of the week, here it goes! Please read below to continue!

Clear all Daily Goals to get your Strengthening Items!

In this tip, this was very simple as it is! You just simply login, then finish your Daily Goals! You need to do at least three live show plays and finish them in Full Combo! And you can do them in any difficulty! The first one is that you must do at least one live show play to get your Love Gem bonus and other items! The second and third ones are that you must land a Full Combo finish by using a team consisting of µ’s or Aqours only (no duplicates), one for each goal! And the last one is that you must land three Full Combo finishes in order to achieve the last goal, and you can get an another Love Gem by clearing it! And that gives you at least two (2) Love Gems in total per day! That’s one of the ways in order to get some Love Gems fast, if you are patient enough!

Please do note of this! I am already making an announcement! The next LLSIF Tip (next week or Episode) shall be the last one! After that one next week, there shall be no more! Instead, I shall be replacing this part with an another type of highlight! Please stay tuned for my announcement!

Events are occurring at the same time… Which one for me needs to be sacrificed? I had to make my decision. And to end this Episode, you shall find out which one shall be the one to focus my Event Points grind, and the other one to be sacrificed — to be revealed, next week!

And that ends the Episode 36 of School Idol Festival Journal Log! Tune in next week!
