The Climax Episode.

When we talk about climax, it is something that we are expecting things to be more exciting. At the point where heroes and heroines are in the times of conflict, there is something that can lead them to victory. And that scene is considered to be the climatic part in which it is the turn of the heroes and heroines after their main villain has finally made their evil part of destroying them. This is where tables will turn, and heroes and heroines (and idols) shall make their own part of defeating their strong enemy!

This is where the Episode 41 of this segment shall go. And we are inching closer to the end! We are in the ‘climax’ part where everything must be settled!


So far, we got some few headlines, but they are relevant somehow! Please do read more to find out!

Aqours 5th Anniversary Live is Deferred

All seems lost now, but still we must fight on! The team has posted a statement with regards to the deferment (postponement and movement of the date of event) of the Aqours 5th Anniversary Live this coming weekend because to the Japan’s state of emergency due to the surging of COVID-19 cases there. Just in order to protect the staff, the management, and the artists (Aqours), they should postpone the event which shall involve mass gatherings. Therefore, they should never lose hope, and they sought to bring their fans a wonderful performance!

The Aqours VAs had expressed their thoughts about this deferment, and they had quote-retweeted this Tweet.

Next Week: Nijigasaki 3rd Live!

Meanwhile, for the Nijigasaki side, their 3rd live shall be commencing next week on May 8 and 9, 2021!

The title is Nijigasaki High School Idol Club 3rd Live! – School Idol Festival: The Beginning of the Dream. For the mass-gathering part, it was already cancelled due to the concerns and measures on COVID-19 cases. But then, the paid streaming, both local and overseas, were announced this week! Which means, this Event is going to happen next week!

Official live goods are also still up for preorders. So try making a purchase on them whenever you can!

And also, please stay tuned at their feed if there are some changes! In fact, this Event is in the risk of getting cancelled or postponed!

Round 21 Companion Match (Final)

The match is still going on, and it is expected to end later this afternoon at 3pm JST.

Been struggling in some harder Level 12 Songs like Waku-Waku-Week!, and Aozora Jumping Heart, lately. Especially if they are in Perfects Mission, I got a hard time landing myself in the first position when the live show ends, and I always get little Event Points in that process. Since because I get only little Event Points when landed on 3rd or 4th places, it has made me a hard time making it to the Tier 1 Event Points rank cutoff. But then, I got still a lot of time, and I must fight on in order to get Tier 1-1 victory!

As I had said, I got less than 6 hours left to defend my Tier 1-1 standing, and this is my final highlight on this Event! Wait for my results in my Twitter account later to see if I had finished Tier 1-1 or not.

And finally, we are at the climax of this side, before the great server merging will happen. As for the Global Side, some remaining Events and campaigns must be finished first! Please read more to continue!

Icon Collection: Aqours at the Community Festival (Final)

So then, despite on the ongoing Aqours Event in the JP Side, I had finished it with a Tier 1-1 finish. I had previously finished the μ’s Event also in Tier 1-1. Which means, I had made my second Tier 1-1 streak in the Global Side without failing! That’s right, my fight is not yet over.
