The Acronym of Power -Part 3-

In the last two Episodes, we had talked about the first four letters in the acronym, power. They are P for Perseverance, O for Observation, W for Wisdom, and E for Experience.

So what could be the letter R stands for? In fact, this one is a very popular quote! With great power comes great… blank! Can you guess it?

Alright! The letter R stands for Responsibility! With great power comes great responsibility!

With responsibility, you must know your role. You must know your obligations when you are at home with your family, at school, at work, or at elsewhere! You must know that your responsibility at everything can make you a great person, which in fact, makes you a different mature person! So then, with the power that you have, it comes with great responsibility! Don’t ever forget your daily duties, such as helping in the house, or even helping someone who is in need.

Oh yeah! The acronym is finally complete!

  • P: Perseverance
  • O: Observation
  • W: Wisdom
  • E: Experience
  • R: Responsibility

You must know these five aspects! And then, you can well master the power that you have! And this ends the Episode theme!

Okay, now that you have known your power. It is time to proceed with the things that happened recently in the LoveLive! Series! What are those happenings? Unless you read the 40th Episode of School Idol Festival Journal Log, you do not know what are those!


There are highlights encountered! Please read more to continue!

Happy Birthday, Maki Nishikino!

Today, I know it’s very late. But it is better this way than never! Anyway, let us greet Maki with a birthday message! Her birthday was celebrated last April 19!

Dear Maki Nishikino,

You hair is red, and it has a same color as tomatoes. In fact, you like eating tomatoes, do you? You put them on a sandwich with other veggies.

For my birthday message to you, I hope that you could excel more not just in your singing career, but on other aspects, such as knowing you very well through with your gravure photo sets and any of your other photobooks featured in magazines.

Are you going to pursue your dreams of being a doctor? Just remember to know your responsibilities very well and don’t forget that everyone loves you, after all, especially your ‘older’ fans.

Happy birthday, dear Maki Nishikino, the gorgeous ‘Scarlet Princess’ of µ’s, and a member of the sub-unit, BiBi!

Finally, we are finished with the highlights! But then, the celebration for the LLSIF’s 8th anniversary last week is just not over! So then, we have to proceed to the next part! What are the things that were encountered during the past week and this week on the LLSIF rhythm game? Please read this Episode until the very end!


In this part, we had an ongoing 8th Anniversary Celebration Campaigns (like limited UR scoutings, etc.), as well as the ongoing Event! Please do read more of the highlights below to continue!

Round 6 Live Arena (Final)

During the time when the previous µ’s Event was over, I rushed in finishing this Live Arena Event. When I reached the Royal Expert Category and cleared at least 40 Special Sessions, this is where my conflict has started.

That’s right! I do even sweat in this, either! The Live Arena now is very difficult to finish! And there is not much strategy if you don’t have the appropriate URs and Skill Items used in order to survive! The thing is that when you have a full UR team, you must have them all of their Skill Slots open. It is because this is where you could put more Live Arena SIS items to them. The effects of those Live Arena SIS items will cause your total score to be increased higher when the live show ends. If in case that if you can’t beat your rival’s intended score, then your Live Arena SIS items are the only ones that can save you from losing.

My only tip here is that you must be capable in landing higher combo counts at songs in Master difficulty, especially the harder ones. Otherwise, it will be a tough battle for you no matter how strong your teams are.

For my experiences, so far, I got a hard time passing through with Stage 49, or the 49th Special Session, where my Cool Team is always the victim (due to weak Skill Levels and unopened Skill Slots). But then, I was able to pull off when I was able to open and maximize the Skill Slots of the URs in my Cool Team.

And finally, I had defeated the Round 6 Live Arena by clearing all of the 50 Special Sessions. Yeah, and that one is very harder than before!

On top of that, I had encountered 2 Dream Session matches. And that makes me clear at least two Dream Sessions in the Live Arena!

Round 21 Companion Match

With the Companion Match Event being started since the 20th of April, I am going to give you some details about this one! In fact, this Aqours Event is now parallel with the Global Side which is also an Aqours Event (later in the Global Side highlights)!

The Event UR to be obtained from this Event is Mari Ohara, while Chika and Hanamaru can be obtained by Scouting. Secret SSR Yoshiko Tsushima can be acquired when you play and grind for more Event Points during the duration period! As usual, returning Event SRs that appeared before in the previous past Events shall be acquired as rewards!

Seriously, I had to play and earn my Tier 1-1 finish on this Event. Since I am also aiming for Tier 1-1 in the Global Side, then this is going to be a warzone. Further highlights shall be given to you in the next Episode! Look forward into it!

The LLSIF National Tournament (Japan Only)

To translate and summarize, the game is going to have a national tournament, which shall be held for the residents and players within Japan only. Given if you are residing in Japan, were you strong enough? Then why not you shall give it a try? Maybe you could be the next champion!

The only requirement is that you must achieve the ‘Master’ class (next to Royal Expert class) by clearing the missions in the Performance Class mode. Once you earn and achieve the Master class, then you are eligible in the national tournament entry. For people in Japan, please stay tuned at their feed for their updates about this!

Upcoming Update: Costume Add-On

As seen in the previous Aqours livestream last Saturday, this upcoming update allows you to convert your previous SR members into SRs with art cover! I don’t think it could be a useful feature, but then, you shall find out in the succeeding days to come! Stay tuned at their feed, or by staying tuned at your in-game notifications about this upcoming update!

This time, this is going to be a showdown! What could be the experiences for me in this highlight, especially on the ongoing Event which is ending soon? Read more to find out!

Icon Collection: Aqours at the Community Festival

This Event is still ongoing, and it is expected to end in just a few days. But then, let me give you my experiences and highlights for this one!

I got some useful tip for you if you are bored in playing some same songs in your head. Why not use the Random Song feature that appears on your B-Sides? And that is, in order for you to be more challenged, as you can play random songs without repeating them! Just don’t risk of losing your LP by failing or quitting it especially if you are using the LP consumption multiplier.

So then, I was able to stand up and make it almost to the Tier 1 Event Points position. Will I able to become victorious and claim the Tier 1 spot? Final results shall be posted here next week! Look forward into it!
