Aika was being surrounded by a group of boys and men. And then, a man stood behind Aika and said, “I am getting excited! I have you now!”
Aika got no other choice but to scream loud with her voice.
From behind, Takayoshi did a kick at the man’s back who is about to hold and grab Aika. He was knocked down and dissolved digitally. Komari used her gun to shoot the boys and the other men surrounding her. And they were all annihilated and dissolved.
“Virtual people?” asked Sho. “They were dissolved digitally when defeated!”
“Guys, thank you for saving me on time!” said Aika. “Never thought that these men would eventually rape me!”
“Good thing you are safe now,” said Chiharu. “Now that we are complete, we must find a way on how we could get out from this place!”
“I have really noticed that the environment around us is just like a digital space or some sort,” said Takayoshi.
“No doubt that we are trapped in the Parody Universe,” said Komari.
As they are talking, Lierre saw some tall building tower which is standing not far from their location. And she saw a glowing violet light at the top.
And then, Lierre said, “It seems we have to go to that tower, and we must find our way to climb to that top!”
Chiharu and others did hesitate no more. And Chiharu finally said, “Let’s go everyone! We have to climb to the top of that tower!”
Finally, the Idol Chasers are in the bottom entrance of the tower. They had made their way in.
Aika noticed the signage written at the entrance of the tower, and she reads:
“One does not resort herself into violence in order to gain victory. One must sing and dance in order for them to smile.”
“What does this mean?” Aika got no idea on what could be the meaning behind with those signages. So, she proceeds inside the tower entrance.
When they have reached the first floor, there are two people who are standing and waiting. And then…
“Let’s see if you could continue on the next floor.”
“You should win against us, first!”
The Idol Chasers don’t have any idea on what to do in order to proceed to the next floor of the tower.
“What’s this? Dungeon bosses?” asked Takayoshi.
“And they were dressed up in their School Idol costumes!” said Aika.
“Hmm…” said and asked Chiharu. “Does it mean that we are going to do our live performance here? Right now?”
Lierre used her Digitariel to find out some information. And then, she explains it to the Idol Chasers.
“I think we are here in this tower building, called the Live Arena Tower. Basically, you are right, Chiharu. We must do our live performance here, and we need to impress these people in order to climb up by a floor.”
“Oh no…” said Chiharu. “I am not prepared yet with my lyrics and my own dance steps! What are we going to do?”
“Now, that’s a problem…”
Suddenly, the Charm that Chiharu is having is beginning to resonate. And she said, “This Charm item… Yeah, I remember now!”
She remembered the time that Honoka has said to her that she would be using the Charm item in the near future when the time comes. And when Chiharu has hold and used the Charm item, her emotions have changed suddenly. From being shy, her emotions have changed into a cheerful style.
Aika’s Charm item has resonated, too. And she said, “It’s shining, too! Let me try this!”
And so, Aika used the Charm item that Kotori has given to her. And then, Aika’s emotion have changed from normal to cute expressions and gestures!
Finally, Chiharu and Aika have stood up in the front against with the other two School Idol Rivals.
When their rivals have performed and finished up their own short live performance, the numbers have appeared at the side of their live stage in the area. It is labelled as Emotion Points. Their rivals’ Emotion Point Score is at 7,900.
“I see,” said Lierre. “We have to get higher Emotion Points by performing properly in the live stage! We just need to beat their Emotion Points in order for us to proceed on to the next floor! Chiharu! Aika! You have to dance and sing along with this song!”
“Okay! Let’s do our best, Aika!” said Chiharu with a cheerful emotion.
“Yeah! Let’s be on the top!” said Aika with a cute expression.
Lierre uses her Digitariel to decide on the song. The song picked is “No Brand Girls” by μ’s. And the live show has started.
When the live show ended, the results were decided. Chiharu and Aika got Emotion Points Score of 8,000.
Which means, they have won against with their rivals. And then, they talked to them.
“Great job! But then, it’s not over!”
“You shall be facing a lot more harder Session Opponents on the top floors! We doubt that you could win against the 100th Session opponent, who is at the top part of this Live Arena Tower!”
After that, they were dissolved from sight. And then, the door leading to the next floor has opened.
“Let’s go, people!” said Lierre. “We have still a lot more floors to go! Basically, we just need to do the same as in the next floors!”
And then, they begin to move.
Takayoshi, on the other hand, was looking at his Charm item that Chika has given to him. And he said, “Chika, I think the time has finally come, and I shall have to use this!”
Sho was looking also at his Charm item that Yohane has given to him. And he said, “Well, it is time for me to be on the spotlight!”
Komari talks to Sho while running to the next floor.
“So then, I might turn something just like Chiharu and Aika were like now!”
“I wondered what is it like when I became a male School Idol…”
“But then, I am dressing up as a guy right now. And the girly clothes won’t even suited me very well.”
“That’s fine! But then, it doesn’t matter on who you are, so as long as you don’t squish others’ feelings!”
“Huh? I see! That’s what my mother has told me before!”
“Oh… That’s great!”
“Thank you, Sho.”
“You are welcome. And now, running with you like this…”
“Yup! Actually, I have already found my group of friends. And one of them is you!”
“Aww…. Komari, so as long as we are together, we come overcome any odds!”
“For now, we have to save our smiles for later.”
“That’s right, and we are not done with our stage yet!”
When they have reached the second floor, they had done their same strategy as in the first floor. As they are progressing the tower by floors, they kept winning every live performance with higher Emotion Points than their rivals. Sometimes, they change their songs in order to win in a different way.
A lot of hours have passed, and they have finally defeated the 99th Session Rivals in the Live Arena Tower.
And then, their rivals have said to them, “Beware on the 100th or the last Session Rival! I am sure you can be sent back to the first floor again if you lose!”
Finally, their rivals have been dissolved. And the Idol Chasers have proceeded to the last floor, or otherwise at the top floor of the Live Arena Tower.
We are now in the second Episode of the Liella! Anime SEASON TWO! And in this blog post series segment, we are now in the second Episode, too, of the Cour 3! Will the third cour shall be the last for the SEASON TWO?

Numazu Jimo-Ai Matsuri (Overseas Paid Live Streaming)
Having absolutely no idea on how to watch these live shows without even going to the venue itself, or otherwise going to Japan?
No problem! Since the Team Aqours has announced already some Paid Live Streaming stuff — for Overseas fans, as well as for Japanese folks who lived outside of Japan!
The Numazu Jimo-Ai Matsuri shall be held on at least two parts: One is a two-part radio show, and the other is a two-day Live and Fan Meeting live event on the venue itself.
The radio show shall be hosted by Shuka Saito (You-chan), Aika Kobayashi (Yohane), and Ai Furihata (Ruby) on August 11, 2022 JST.
And then, that two-day live and fan meeting event shall be held on Kiramesse Numazu, on August 13-14, 2022 JST. Hosts shall be different from both two days, so attending them is really important, if you really wanna see all of the Aqours members in action!
And as stated in the previous Episode in the Headlines, all Aqours members, except Anju Inami (Chika), shall be present on all of the parts of the Numazu Jimo-Ai Matsuri event.
The Event costs for at least 2,000 JPY for the radio show, and 4,000 JPY (per day) for the Live and Fan Meeting Event.
Official Page (Overseas Fans Paid Live Streaming):
So then, there are lots of announcements had been made, due to their previous livestream last Thursday, July 28, 2022. But then, since there are so many of them to fit altogether in this Episode, I shall be highlighting the principal parts only! The rest are for you to explore!
R3BIRTH 2nd Single: Vroom Vroom
It was then revealed at their livestream that the new single of the Niji Sub Unit, R3BIRTH, shall be released on September 28, 2022. The title is Vroom Vroom, as in the sound of a car’s engine (lol). Maybe they had run out of ideas, though.

Liella! TV Anime Season Two Weekly Campaigns
As you have noticed, the LLSIF Team has begun doing this weekly campaign, in order to commemorate the Liella! Anime (LoveLive! Superstar!!) SEASON TWO’s release! And this shall be done weekly until it is finished airing!
You can encounter some Weekly Login Bonus Campaigns, just right after an Episode is finished airing (A day after an Episode is aired on NHK E-TV, its original TV network in Japan). It contains at least seven items, which shall include a Liella! member SR on the 7th day. Make sure to login in ALL of the seven (7) days straight to get all of the seven items! And basically, you cannot get the last item on the 7th day, if you missed at least one day of your login streak, so be careful! Good luck, have fun, and make history!
And finally, not just Login Bonus Items within this campaign shall be present! Make sure to watch out, since of what I had heard or understood is that there would be some Limited B-Side Songs that shall appear in the Liella! Songs Library! They might be releasing new songs in the B-Sides soon, which had appeared in the TV Anime SEASON TWO before! Make sure to look forward into those!
Whatever the date is, make sure to stay in their feed for some updates about this!
Limited UR Scouting?
And the Scout for Chika Takami
They had been surprising us with more of their colorful Limiteds! Yes, and they were tagging along with the Brilliant Jewelry URs, notably on Honoka and Chika side.
The recent Limiteds are coming from the cover jacket of their respective First Solo Concert Album Series CDs. Such as that, the costumes used are from their featured songs from the TV Anime Blu-Ray Box volume sets. One example is Chika Takami wearing her One More Sunshine Story costume, that appeared before in their previous major lives (notably Aqours 3rd Live Tour Series).
For my scouting report, I had scouted at least five (5) UR You Watanabes in her Beginner’s Sailing costume, while getting Chika Takami in her One More Sunshine Story costume as a bonus on the fifth Stamp Scout! You know really the reason why I scouted those 5 UR You-chans in that scouting box, don’t you?
Make sure to scout those Limited URs before their respective durations have been expired! As of today, only the 2nd Years are current available for scouting. I don’t know if they could have a re-run on the last period of their campaign, though. Just stay tuned if there are changes!
And at the time when the Limited UR of Chika in her Brilliant Jewelry costume has appeared since July 26th, I had attempted to scout on her “Paid” box. That time, in a few days before her birthday box has appeared, I had stocked up with my 3 Paid Scout 11 Tickets, and some 50 Paid Love Gems. And that makes at least 4 draws in order to get her new Birthday UR. And there is a chance that you could draw her signed version at a fixed chance, if you got lucky!
Unfortunately, I failed to draw her Signed version. But at least, I am having this as my new UR in my stable of URs in my JP Side account. So then, I am really ready to celebrate Chika’s birthday on August 1!
ALL STARS HIGHLIGHTS
It’s about time when I am going to compete for the first time, especially when I am in the School Idol Channel of my best girl in Aqours… It’s finally the TIME.

STORY: Summer, Sea, Training! (Final)
I don’t know if I could laugh or to be sad on this one. I haven’t tried reading yet its featured Event Story Episodes, and as well as grinding harder on it.
But then, this Event is ending in a few hours, just after this Episode was published. Let’s see if I could try to grind harder for this one, as promised.
Finally, my Event Report shall be posted via my Twitter account. And there is no need for me to include it on my highlights next Episode, since everything is already given on that Tweet of mine.
And this is my final highlights of this Event. Make sure to get those featured Event SRs and URs on time, before this Event ends!
STORY EPISODE (EPILOGUE)
The area is open and windy, and the Idol Chasers are feeling the breeze. And then, Lierre is feeling the presence of somebody.
Finally, a person has appeared before the Idol Chasers.
“It’s been a while meeting you, my other self!”
“Inverse Lierre…” said Lierre. “No, my other self with negative colors!”
“It seems you got a lot of companions with you. And I guess my experiment with that School Idol has failed, somehow.”
“Wait a minute… You are the one who turned Riko Sakurauchi into Gen Sakurauchi, into her man form! You altered her memories and you made that School Idol do some such horrible things!”
“(Chuckles) Well, I guess that Mikako is already screwing up now, because I know that you are going to win against me in this Live Arena Tower that I have made!”
“I guess so. So then, get ready for your own consequences!”
“Game on. Session Start.”
And so, the final live session is about to begin.
Prediction of your own future? One of the ways to predict it is the use of the tarot cards. Your fate can be really decided depending on the cards being drawn. And did you know that a certain School Idol from the Legendary Group is always using those tarot cards to predict also your luck for the future? But then, not all of the predictions are indeed correct, and one should not really rely on these.
Next time on SIF Journal Log SEASON TWO, “Tarot Card Prediction“.
Now, let’s make our dreams come true together!

In this second season, Kanon and the other four girls of the original “Liella!” are in their sophomore years. In their next semester of their schooling in the Yuigaoka Girls’ High School, they have met the four new girls, who were in their new fresh years.
What else awaits them? Will they able to find out their reason why they wanted to achieve their dreams, and win? Along with those four new girls, they are fated to perform together in one big stage.
