Saishukai: The True Ending

Omega. It is the last letter of the Greek alphabet. It also means that this segment is also ending now. Thank you for supporting this segment for the entire 1 year! 1 year means that I am celebrating, and at the same time, I am ending this segment!

Although that no one is eager in reading my Episodes, I still made an achievement by posting at least once per week! And that is almost similar in watching my favorite Anime show that is being shown once per week.

But then, all things must be put into an end, for now. Since I got other priorities to make, such as other of my activities like sewing and biking, I had to concentrate on those just in order to maintain my pace. But then, I was thinking on what segment in IDS I should make in order to replace School Idol Festival Journal Log. Well, it is up to me to decide on what could be that new segment for me to do!

For now, I do not want to be sad on something which is indeed temporary, for me. In fact, I should learn on how to move on from things.

But then, let us not delay any further! Let me finish my one last battle — I mean, Episode! Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Final Episode of Inori-D Station’s segment, the School Idol Festival Journal Log! Okay, Final Mission Start.


Today, we got some headlines and highlights to share from the LoveLive! Universe! In this Final Episode of mine, I am going to give what I got! So far, what were the things spotted from the past days?

Happy Birthday, Karin Asaka!

Since June 29, it was the birthday of the sexy School Idol, Karin Asaka! Alright, let’s greet her with a birthday message in this Final Episode!

Dear Karin Asaka,

It seems you were feeling good today, especially in the past days or years since we met. With your calm voices, you feel that everything is going on smoothly as you go.

Don’t let your wild feelings inside you make you to go to nowhere. I know that you were finding your true self, but don’t make yourself be too confident. And don’t be lost like you don’t know your direction.

We all know that we have our own ambitions in life, and we must know also our own limitations. But then, don’t stop believing in your own endeavors. There are still more for you to reach, and don’t just stick into one aspect that you already know.

We are all having feelings for you, Karin. And use all of our feelings into a power that you can use to withstand any trials! We all know that you have limitations, but we believe that you can overcome it together with your friends and rivals, and with us!

So then, there are still more for you to explore, as a School Idol. We all wish that you should be courageous and willing to do anything. Never back down if you lose!

Many fans are cheering for you all along, and you cheer up also for us if we fail to get your featured URs in both LLSIF and ALL STARS games.

And we are wishing you a Happy Birthday, dear Karin Asaka! We fans love you very much! And we shall continue to support you and to your future endeavors!

Recently, during the June 30th Livestream of Aqours, they had announced several truckload of announcements there!

And finally, Happy 6th Anniversary, Aqours!

Well, that’s it. These were the headlines and highlights encountered. Since this is the Final Episode, I won’t be giving those updates anymore. I can’t give out those updates, but the other pages and news websites you follow can.

Well, the fact that the upcoming TV Anime of Liella! (to be shown at the end of this Episode) is getting closer in the next weekend, we are all excited to see them in action. As it starts, it shall mark another story and history in the LoveLive! Universe, where most of the people I know shall start shifting their previous best girls of LoveLive! into the new ones that they are about to see soon. But then, everything shall be shifted into the new gears, and history of the LoveLive! Universe shall change.

The Episode headlines are now over in this Final Episode! I hope that you were all reading well. In fact, I can’t do this stuff anymore when this Episode ends.

Going now into this Episode proper, let us go into the LLSIF Highlights! Please read this Episode to continue!


As we are in this Final Episode proper, there are things that happened recently in this game. So far, the players out there are feeling good in their playing progress, when the Global Side has been merged recently in the past couple of weeks. But then, the Event grinding shall never fade from that, either.

So, in the future weeks or months, we shall be having new of its features, which can change our playing experiences forever. Due to the fact that they are going to feature the ‘Accessory’ function, this is going to be a challenging moment, especially when grinding for Score Ranks can be more difficult to achieve now. In short, it may become a Pay-to-Win game.

This is my final report or coverage of my progress in the LLSIF rhythm game in this Final Episode. I know that there are lots of stuffs that shall be announced at a later date. But then, after this, there shall be no more. Maybe the other pages and websites that you follow can give out updates.

Right now, let’s move on into this Final Episode proper! So far, what were the things spotted in the past week, and this week on this part? Please read more to continue!

Persona Series Collaboration Event Results

This poll event was done recently, and today we finally have the winner! The winning µ’s member shall be the image girl for the collaboration event! The winner of this event is Eli Ayase!

Eli Ayase won the top spot in the poll. Meanwhile, Nozomi Tojo and Maki Nishikino landed in 2nd and 3rd places respectively! So then, we just wait for the LLSIF team on when this collaboration event shall take place. Be sure to follow on their feed for the upcoming updates regarding this collaboration event with the Persona Series!

So far, I wonder if they gonna do it the same, similar of what they did to Aqours with the past Shadowverse collaboration event? We shall find out in the succeeding days to come!

SIF Series Thanksgiving 2021 Event Revealed

Every year, there’s thanksgiving event! And every thanksgiving events there are many surprises!

The LLSIF team has finally revealed the key visual of their upcoming SIF Series Thanksgiving 2021 event! The official website of this event is finally open, and you can go to the link given in this embedded Tweet!

Be sure to follow at their feed again for more details! Furthermore, details about this, such as the dates, shall be announced separately at a later date.

Round 9 Live Arena

This is the last of them… I mean, the last of the Nijigasaki UR set that you can obtain from the Live Arena! And that’s right, the Round 9 Live Arena is already starting!

Complete more Special Sessions, and achieve at least Expert or Royal Expert category in order to win a UR Rina Tennoji!

It seems you had already known the rules of Live Arena, isn’t it? If so, reach for the stars, and be victorious!

Aqours – Round 29 Challenge Festival (Final)

Finally, I had landed my victory once again in the Aqours Side! Right now, it has finally changed my playing experience, and my scoring capabilities, forever.

As I am progressing and grinding through with this concluded Challenge Festival Event, I had tried playing through continuously by opening more boxes when I completed a live show. In fact, I am using my score team to get higher scores and to open high-level boxes. With them, I can sometimes obtain Skill Level Up cards, in which I can use to strengthen up my School Idol’s personal skills.

As of today, I am testing a new meta-team in which most of my friends, as well as some top players in the Score Rankings, are using right now. And yep, I am using some powerful Scorers and at least 4 Skill Repeaters that have the same rhythm notes count as Scorers. Also, I am using a Skill Chance Booster to increase the effectiveness of my Scoring capabilities. Those are one of the members in the team that I am using for the meta.

And due to the fact that one of my last plays have landed a tremendous 3 million score, I am very happy with the result! In fact, I should keep this up in order to stand up a chance, and to beat my rivals in the Score Rankings! Yep, there is still room for improvement for me, and I got still a long way to improve my rhythm playing skills.

And for the final progress in this Event in which I am going to highlight in this Final Episode, it has made me feel relaxed and happy. If you had read the previous Episode which highlights this Challenge Festival, you might know the reason why the grinding in Events now has slightly eased.

For the song grinding and playthrough, I am still screwing up in some songs, especially the 12’s Master songs. Some of them are very insane, in which my thumbs are already hurting and paralyzing in process. Notably on Ultimate difficulty course (Level 11-12 Master bracket), WATER BLUE NEW WORLD and Mirai no Bokura wa Shitteru yo on Round 5, Deep Resonance, Genki Zenkai DAY! DAY! DAY!, and Jingle Bells ga Tomaranai on Round 4, and WONDERFUL STORIES on Round 3 are my worst songs that can easily wreck my thumb fingers. And also, don’t forget about Hajimari Road in which is also present and lurking around to get me, too.

But then, all of those songs had greatly changed me the way that I am playing LLSIF. In fact, I am already yelling while playing (especially on mid-difficulty Category 4 Master song like Yume no Tobira), which in fact that my family members are also scolding me because I am too noisy in playing! So then, I should avoid playing in the night, because during that time, they are easily getting irritated with my voices while playing, lol.

And finally, for the final results of this Event progress of mine, I had finally reached another Tier 1-1 victory.

So then, my Global Side (EN) account is totally absent throughout the entire month, doing nothing but login bonuses. But then, expect for my Global Side account to make its comeback at the next upcoming µ’s Event on the 5th of July! That’s right, it is finally returning, and it is ready for action once again, soon!

And this ends my highlights for this part! Thank you very much!

Finally, we had reached the end of the road, the end of this Episode, and the end of this segment on Inori-D Station. Time flies really fast, isn’t it?

But then, I had enjoyed very well in writing this segment throughout the entire one year. In fact, it’s just like writing a novel, and it is just like producing my own TV series.

And that is for the School Idol Festival Journal Log! Thank you for those who read this segment of mine from the very start since Episode One until the very end! Without you, I won’t be able to make this far.

As of today, I got lots of projects to make, as well as some of my planned future segments in this website. I don’t know what are those and I can’t name them for now. But if there is anything that come into my mind, I will try my best to make it materialize as soon as possible! For now, I got other plans other than just writing here.

For the updates in the LoveLive! Universe, and in the current LoveLive! games, it’s all in the hands of my fellows! So then, following their official Twitter accounts and/or SNS accounts can help you get these updates in your hands.

Finishing this segment doesn’t mean that I ain’t going to follow LoveLive! Series anymore. In fact, I am just following them and I sometimes retweet those announcements from them, if there’s any!

Is there any plan for a ‘Season 2’ of SIF Journal Log? Definitely, I got no plans in continuing or making another season of this segment. For now, it is totally finished for good. But if you want to see and read my Episodes in the archive one more time, then you may read them for memories!

And once again, thank you guys for reading School Idol Festival Journal Log! And this wraps up the 50th and the Final Episode!
