EPISODE 24: Komari’s Existence
We have travelled through several Parallel Worlds, wherein they have connections with the School Idols.
And then, what was written in my Digitariel is the adventures of Chiharu Umiboshi, a School Idol who is ready to become a winner in the LoveLive! Finals, together with me and with the other girls.
And so, the last page in my Digitariel is completely blank after I had seen it for the last time. Which basically, it tells me that the history is going on to a different direction.
Now, that Honoka has returned to her own original world, that Parallel World is no longer accessible to enter. Same goes to the other Parallel Worlds that we had previously visited. And that is, we have to make our way to the Black Lace Ribbons’ lair, which was led by Mikako Kira.
What else can I do? And my surroundings are darker than it seems.
This is Lierre, the School Idol Oracle, speaking to you, reader. Let this Episode begin!
Komari Ohara is sleeping, and she is dreaming of something. Something in which it has connections to her past. And in her dreams, she finally saw her mother.
Upon her mother’s departure by a helicopter, a missile attack was launched from somewhere. That helicopter was destroyed into pieces, and Komari finally screams.
The dream has ended, and Komari finally wakes up from her sleep. And then, she was lying down on a bed, in a room which is familiar to her before.
And then, Komari has saw somebody whom she has known for a long time. And asked, “Maya Ellen? Where am I, and what are you doing here?”
“Thank goodness, you are alive!” replied Maya to her.
“And then, what happened to my friends?”
“And about your friends… We do not know what has happened. What happened last is that we found you somewhere in the fields lying down. I think you got separated from your friends, don’t you?”
“Now that’s a problem. They do even have Lierre… No, they do even have Chiharu and the others being held captive!”
“Right now, we are planning for a rescue strategy! Just stay here and rest.”
“Let me join with you on your rescue strategy! I just need to save —“
Komari feels the hurt of her left shoulder, and was struggling in pain. Then Maya told her, and said, “For this moment, please rest for a while. And while resting, let me tell you something before we leave on a mission.”
“Alright. But what stuff did you want to talk about for me then?”
“Komari, this is about your mother, who was dead from a helicopter explosion.”
Komari was then surprised on Maya’s statement.
“I will be giving you permission to access those confidential files. The case number is IDR-169.”
“Thank you for that information.”
“You are welcome. That’s an exchange for letting yourself to stay for a while.”
Maya gave Komari the card key leading to a room containing most of the IDPMD’s confidential case files. Finally, Maya has left from the room.
Just few minutes later, Komari has finally found the room that Maya has mentioned to her. And by using the access key given to her, Komari finally enters the room.
Komari did remember the case ID given to her by Maya when they were talking. And finally, she has found those files, with the label “Confidential” in it.
“The case is IDR-169,” said Komari. “And the date when is this registered was… June 13, 2020.”
And so, she continued to open those confidential files.
Finally, she saw the profile of her own mother. And then, she began whispering those details in herself.
“So, my mother was a School Idol after all. No doubt about it.”
And then, she flipped a few more pages.
“When she departed from her home via a flying helicopter, it was then destroyed by an explosion caused by a missile attack.”
Komari finally cries in tears, as she knew that it was the exact happening that happened when she has dreamt earlier.
But then, Komari has flipped an another page in the confidential case file. And there, she saw something within that page. She finally remembered the time when somebody has talked to her about it.
“The Mari Ohara in our world is just a copy from the original. Your mother was just also a copy,” said that person whom she has talked into. “Therefore, the real one is just alive, somewhere.”
When Komari has realized those words, she finally knows that her mother was just a clone.
“And then, who is the Mari that I had talked to before?” asked she.
The people in the Missions Department has finally entered inside the room. When Komari has finally saw an opening at the entrance, she uses that opportunity to escape from the room, while hiding and bringing the confidential files with her.
And so, this is where Komari used her chance to exit out from the Interdimensional Police Missions Department, or IDPMD. That’s the name of her secret base, at the time when she was still working as an Interdimensional Policewoman.

When she has arrived at the place in Akihabara, she realized that she was now standing on the present Human World. When she arrived at the place where the maid cafe was, it was nothing, but distorted from sight.
“What should I do?” asked Komari to herself. “How could I save Chiharu and others from Mikako Kira?”
Komari thought of something. She then decided to go to Rika Kamiya’s place, where Lierre used to hang out when she needs help.
At the time that Rika and Takayoshi are talking, Rika said, “I think there is no other way for you to get an exact copy of that Charm Item that has already darkened.”
“Did you mean that there is no hope after all?” asked Takayoshi in disappointment.
When a door knock was heard, Takayoshi finally stands up and he opens the door.
And this is where Takayoshi has finally meet up with Komari.
“Takayoshi?” asked Komari in surprise. “You are back!”
“Komari!” said the surprised Takayoshi. “It’s been a while!”
“We got some major problems while you are out from the team. Would you let me join on your ongoing conversation, please?”
This is where Komari, Takayoshi, and Rika has talked about some major problems.
