The Acronym of Power -Part 2-
In the previous Episode, we had talked about the first two letters of the acronym, POWER. P stands for perseverance, and O stands for observation.
In the second part of this Episode theme, we shall talk about the next two letters, W and E. What could be their meanings?
W is for Wisdom. Wisdom is something that we have in order to have and master our powers greatly. Because without it, we can’t have the power. For its meaning, wisdom, it is something that we know between good and evil. It is about not only we know on how to use it, but we must know on how to use it in good or evil way. It really defines that power is neither good nor evil, and it depends really on the user who uses it. For wisdom, you should know on how to use it in a rightful way, otherwise, this power is useless. Relatively, it is somehow almost similar to observation (Letter O), but in Wisdom, you should know on how to regulate it, and you should know how to use it in a wise way. To repeat, your power is evil if you use it in an evil way or abuse it, and your power is considered as good if you use it for justice and to protect and save your friends.
Letter E is for Experience. Obviously, you need some considerable experience in order to master the power that you have. Basically, you need to be stronger in order to use the power that you have. But then, how can you have and master that great power? Simply train. Train your mind, body, and soul by exercising, reading, or whatever that you have just in order for you to be physically and mentally active. And then, if you don’t have experience, then you can’t have this great power.
We had talked about the two letters in the acronym! Previously, we had P and O last week, and W and E today in this Episode! That makes four! But then, we have one remaining letter in the acronym! What could be the meaning of that letter? Find out next week!
Alright, the true power of LLSIF gaming awakens as it celebrates its 8th Anniversary since April 15th yesterday! What could be the celebration like?

Happy Birthday, You Watanabe!
You Watanabe’s birthday shall be celebrated every 17th of April! How old is she, hmm? It seems we were repeating on her same age all over again, I think. Yep, some things never get older easily, though.
Okay, let us greet You Watanabe today in this Episode, since her birthday is just later midnight!
Dear You Watanabe,
You are a brave-hearted, strong girl among the Aqours members. You are one of Chika’s closest friends. You were always cheering Chika up when she’s down, and you are giving her some ideas on how to make your School Idol bonds stronger.
For my birthday wish for you, I hope that you could create something that your best friend Chika can use on her everyday life. How about something that she can use so that she could inspire everybody? Indeed, because of you, you have become one of my inspirations, and I create clothes for my Nendoroid Dolls.
Today, you should be a role-model for people who were adoring you, because people wanted to feel of what’s being like a School Idol just like you.
Happy Birthday, dear You Watanabe, a member of the CYaRon! sub-unit, and the 5th member (official character ordering) of Chika’s group, called the Aqours! As fans, we love you!
On top of that, her First Solo Concert Album shall be released later, or tomorrow, on her birthday!

Happy 8th Anniversary, School Idol Festival!
And finally, Happy 8th Anniversary to LoveLive! School Idol Festival rhythm game! That’s right, since 2013.
On April 15, yesterday, LLSIF celebrates its 8th anniversary, since year 2013. The game is still up and ongoing, and it never stops because there are lots of campaigns and events in which it can make players be excited and to play more! Definitely, it is not yet the time for LLSIF rhythm game to retire from the lineup of LoveLive! games, along with ALL STARS.
Whew, there are a lot of surprises, and they were so exciting!
But then, the celebration feature is not over yet! There are still more to highlight! Please read this Episode until the very end! As we are about to move on to the next part, what are the things that were encountered during the past weekend, and this week on the LLSIF rhythm game?
JP SIDE HIGHLIGHTS
As the JP Side is celebrating its 8th Anniversary, there are lots of exciting Events and campaigns to enjoy about! Please read these below so that you could have an idea on what are those!
Since I am a great fan of Chika and the Aqours 2nd Years, I decided to give my shot on these limited UR boxes. This has been started when the Icon Collection Event has started ever since!
This Limited UR box can be reset a multiple times. It is because you can choose 1 featured UR for you to scout. There are two URs to pick. One is the featured UR, and the other is a UR that appeared before in the past years! So, try your luck by scouting on this limited UR box!
It contains mostly SRs, and there are no Rs anymore. In fact, this can be applied to the future and the succeeding upcoming limited URs in the future (i.e. µ’s and Aqours 1st years)!
This limited UR box shall last until the 20th of April, after the patch update! Try to give it your shot, if you can!
On my login, when the Event has started, I started to blow my Love Gems and Tickets right away to get Chika and Riko. I had no problem in getting those two. That’s right, I may consider myself as a Chika-Riko fan because Riko is my second best girl next to Chika. When I had acquired those two URs, I still have enough Scouting Tickets. And then, my scouting is not over. Please read the next paragraph along with the embedded Tweet!
When I scouted for You Watanabe, the turnout doesn’t look good at all. I had consumed all of my tickets and gems in hand. I got her random UR, but still I haven’t acquired her featured UR.
So then, I became stressed and I tried to harvest more Love Gems by landing an FC finish to some Master songs, playing in the Live Arena, and even reading the Side Stories of some members that I had max-bonded with. With this effort, I had drawn You Watanabe out from the limited UR box, finally!
As of now, I had all of the Aqours 2nd Years URs in stable. Take note that this is not my first time scouting and getting all of these Aqours 2nd Year URs at once!
In this Event, I had used this opportunity to max-out the Bond Points of some of my SSRs and SRs in stable. Since that time is x5 Bond Points bonus, I had used that opportunity!
And also, there are selected Master songs that appeared on the µ’s B-Sides! Some of the songs, like Happy maker! in Master difficulty, are samples! I had landed finally some Full Combo finish on some Master songs in which I am able to land an FC finish. It is because of the fact that I am practicing very well in the previous Events, with songs are now in Master difficulty.
And for the Event Song, Yujo No-Change, I can land some FC finish frequently, but not if I am using my powerful Pure team! Yeah, sometimes it happens, when I am getting too overexcited with the song!

This Event was concluded since yesterday. I can able to land a Tier 1-1 finish here if I had burnt my midnight oil, and I grind for more Event Icons to play the Event Song continuously. But then, my laziness was still there, and I had ended up with a Tier 2-1 finish again. Still, no Tier 1-1 finish in the µ’s Side, for me.

FEATURE OF THE WEEK!
For the feature of the week, here it goes!
Today’s feature of the week is… Aqours!
Aqours debuted in year 2015, with their first animation PV single entitled, “Kimi no Kokoro wa Kagayaiterukai?”. It is believed that they are going to be a ‘bootleg version’ of µ’s. But then, Aqours had taken a different direction from µ’s, thus making it further popular and appealing to new people who were about to enter to the LoveLive! Universe for the very first time, that time.
They had released over 150 songs, including solo versions of the songs. As of today, they are still active in the LoveLive! Universe. Since their debut, they are still continuing to bring smiles to the people not just only in Japan, but to everyone around the world.
Awaken the Power~! Yeah! Are You Ready Next Week?
Now, we had talked about the 4 letters of the acronym! What could be the last letter, and what could be its meaning? You shall find it out next week, and that one is very easy to remember!
Thank you for reading this Episode! I hope that you could come back for more! Anything that shall happen later shall be included next week! See you next time, and see you on the next Episode of School Idol Festival Journal Log! Happy weekend, people!
