EPISODE 13: Dimension Shift

Let’s begin to read this Story Episode to see what happens!

The next day, Chiharu has taken a shower, and has went downstairs. She was now eating breakfast with Chinatsu and her mother.

“My school activities will be tougher now,” said Chiharu. “Because I am a School Idol, and… a part-time worker in the maid cafe!”

“Just don’t push yourself too hard, big-sis!” said Chinatsu. “All things will be harder, especially when you get sick!”

“Always stay healthy and stay fit!” said her mother. “Remember to exercise and to rest regularly!”

“Thank you, Mom, Nacchan. With all of the things that I have learned, I had struggled myself to be better.”

“Oh, and we will be looking forward in supporting your School Idol activities! And I wanna be a School Idol, someday!”

“My dear, you must go now, and show them what you got!”

Chiharu hugs her mother and Chinatsu together. And she said, “I am going to bring home victory!”

The girls had taken their last class. Chiharu, Aika, Komari, and Mami had taken their pop quiz. In the end, Mami got a higher score than in the other girls, while Chiharu being the second. It seems that Aika got the lowest score among them this time, and yet she is having fun.

When their classes are over, they headed straight to the maid cafe for their afternoon shift.

In the HQ, Chiharu saw the Digitariel stuck on the wall, and Saki told her about it.

“Miss Saki,” said Chiharu. “How did Lierre’s Digitariel stick to the wall?”

“I don’t know how either,” replied Saki. “The Digitariel just appeared, and it just self-attached to the wall of our HQ.”

“And then, how’s Lierre? How’s her condition?”

“She is just sleeping on the bed. No signs of waking up either throughout the entire day.”

And then, she went to the bedroom where Lierre is lying down. She even saw Honoka there.

“Chiharu!” said Honoka. “I am glad you came here!”

“Honoka!” replied Chiharu. “How’s her condition?”

“Lierre is fine. But then, something strange and her costume just turned black!”

“Costume… Turned black…? No way, must it be…”

“I am now feeling her faint aura! It looks like she has finally awakened, again.”

Lierre’s black aura is coming out, and she is ready to wake up, soon.

And then, the evening shift is over, and the maid cafe is closing.

“Thank you, and come again tomorrow!” said Gen to the departing customer. Finally, Gen sensed something strange and said, “It looks like she has awakened again… Inverse Lierre!”

Upon closing the door of the maid cafe, the Digitariel stuck on the wall has did a self-activation, and is starting to act weird.

“I wondered what is it happening? But then, I can feel that something is really going to happen,” Gen said.

Aika, Sho, Komari, and Mami are ready to go home. And suddenly, some screams were heard.

Finally, everyone were gathered inside the Idol Chasers HQ. And Chiharu and Honoka were held and restrained by this person.

“It’s been a while since I had been put to sleep for many days and months!” said the one who is holding and restraining Chiharu and Honoka.

“Inverse Lierre!” said everyone else. Mami was really surprised on what did she saw for the first time.

“Oh my,” said Inverse Lierre. “It looks like some mess did really happen here while I was gone! But then, let me just fix everything that I had done wrong before.”

Finally, she has released Chiharu and Honoka from her grasp of telepathy. And then, Inverse Lierre talks to everybody.

“Did you know that the Nega Cell which was attached to me before? It has well stimulated my own desires. In fact, the Nega Cell is just a product where it will just boost your own desires, whether good or evil! If a person is a goodie, then she will be more good and godly. Otherwise, she will be more evil than ever when injected by that! As I, myself, since I am on the dark side, then I am evil myself.”

Saki adds up and said, “Inverse Lierre, please tell us on how did you take over Lierre’s body.”

“That’s a simple sentence to answer. I just simply take over her body because she was unconscious that time. And then, I had taken this opportunity to take over her for the meantime until she wakes up. But don’t worry. She is still alive, and she is just in a deep sleep.”

Chiharu finally steps in, and talks to her and asked, “Inverse Lierre! The Digitariel is stuck on the wall in this room, and can you tell us about it?”

“I see…” replied Inverse Lierre. “So this is basically what happens when the School Idol Oracle herself is not present in this world! And did you know what this means?”

They were surprised on her interrogative sentence.

And then, the Digitariel on the wall has self-activated again. This time, it is writing and outputting some gibberish letters. Finally, a strange earthquake has ensued, and they were all surprised and in panic.

When the earthquake is done, their worrying has stopped. Inverse Lierre has said to them, “So, how about we do some little adventures, huh? Basically, it can help you to reach on what we call the Black Lace Ribbons’ Dimension!”

And the Idol Chasers and Honoka were surprised about it.

“For now, you have to find out on what is in that Digitariel.”

Chiharu then interrupts her and said, “Inverse Lierre! Can you tell us about the Digitariel?”

Then she replied, “Like I said, I don’t know about it, and my other self did know about it. But I can’t tell because she can’t even remember it.”

Inverse Lierre finally made her final words and said, “You just have to find out. And I must leave to find them out, either.”

And then, she disappears from sight.

“No, Inverse Lierre!” said Chiharu as she has lost an another ally.

Sho finally goes out and he opens the main door of the maid cafe. As he opened it, he saw some surroundings in which they were not seen before, and he was ended up surprised.

“Everyone!” shouted Sho. “Look at outside! Something’s weird outside!”

And then, everyone went outside to see.

“This isn’t the present Human World that we are in now,” said Gen. “In fact, we had made our Dimension Shift into this mysterious Parallel World!”

The Idol Chasers saw that they are stepping into a strange Parallel World, wherein they weren’t stepping into the present Human World anymore. That world is deserted, as if it is just like the post-apocalyptc setting.

“This world…” said Honoka. “Everyone, please head back to the HQ!”

And so, everyone has returned inside.

Inside the HQ, they are looking at the Digitariel. Honoka tries to touch and operate it.

Honoka is reading the gibberish letters and words on that tablet. And she finally reads it aloud.

“You are being shifted into this Parallel World because you have a task. All you need is to gather some Prism Cards that were present within that Parallel World. Each Prism Card contains some memories of something else, and they can be used to swipe into this Digitariel. Once you had activated that Prism Card, it shall bring you to the next Parallel World. The Parallel Worlds are connecting, and it shall be bringing you to the place where the Black Lace Ribbons are there. Use the Prism Cards that you have found in each Parallel World in order to reach their world. You must stop the Black Lace Ribbons from further achieving their plans in conquering both present Human World and the Parallel Worlds. This is your test as Idol Chasers.”

She has finally finished reading it, and said, “Whew! That one is too long!”

“The question is,” asked Chiharu. “How many Parallel Worlds are there?”

“Seems we are in a whole new level of challenge, isn’t it?” said Aika. “But then, we just need to accept this challenge in order to get back into our world!”

“Oh, and this is just like a video game!” said Sho.

“Parallel Worlds…” said Komari. “I had been an Interdimensional Policewoman before, so… I think there are at least seven of these Parallel Worlds. I don’t know if there would be more than seven now!”

“Our adventures will start now as Idol Chasers!” said Gen.

“I am a School Idol…” said Mami. “And an adventurer!”

“Everyone!” said Honoka to them. “This could be our new mission now! We need to find those Prism Cards, and bring them here in order to swipe them into the Digitariel and to get to the next world!”

“This is it!” said Saki. “We can finally reach Mikako Kira’s World! Mikako, we are coming right to your world, soon!”

Saki finally confirms the mission, and said, “Idol Chasers! Stage Start!”

They replied, “S.I.F. !!”

Meanwhile, at the lair of the Black Lace Ribbons, Mikako Kira are having a meeting with the members.

“So then, we are going to stop the Idol Chasers from achieving their plans on stopping us!” said Mikako.

“But then, we have failed to secure our championship victory for Hyoshiro,” said Mitsu.

“Really?” asked and said Seiba, “In my opinion, we just retreated knowing that we had totally relied on Hyoshiro’s strength and skills to beat Takayoshi, but failed rather miserably.”

“It is because”, said Eru and Aru to them at the same time, “You guys are just cowards, beh!!”

The boys were somehow teased by the twins, and they were mentally provoked by their words. Also, they had pouted in their faces.

“Enough of it, for now,” said Mikako. “If we can’t stop them, then Master Rhadamanthus has hired someone who can stop them easily!”

“Yo boys! Yo girls!” said the mysterious woman in black and frilled magical girl costume. “I will be the one to stop them! My name is Antyla.”

And they were all surprised and looked at her.

“You know, you were all useless when it comes to the tasks like these. And then, it’s finally my turn to show to you on how these kinds of tasks should be done! I will stop these lousy Idol Chasers, and you will see that in your eyes!”

As Antyla has finally left, Mikako is well impressed at her sense of arrogance. But then, there is some point of hers that she never likes.

And Mikako finally said, “Saki, if we can’t stop you, then Antyla will!”
