EPISODE 25: Planet Eidos
Just a while ago, before Komari Ohara got separated from Chiharu and the Idol Chasers, they had finally arrived at the next Parallel World.
And then… This feeling… My surroundings are dark, and I am feeling the pain.
All you have to do is to read the Story Episode, to see what happens.
This is Lierre, who is speaking to you, reader.
And so, after an earthquake in their maid cafe, the Digitariel has shown the last Parallel World that the Idol Chasers must explore, and to find the Prism Card.
“This world…” said Lierre. “We have finally arrived. It’s Planet Eidos. No doubt about it.”
“Planet Eidos!?” surprised everyone else.
“I think the time has really come. Remember about the Eidonians, who were throwing people into the unknown dimension?”
“Eeekkk!!” said Sho Ukiya in surprise when he heard about it. “And you would be thrown there if you ain’t an Eidonian, right?”
“Oh no!” said Mami. “Then, what should we do?”
Saki has finally cleared out her silence and said, “Eidonians, huh? It is my first time meeting them. Lierre! All of us should go out and let’s meet with them!”
Lierre finally objects and said, “But Saki… They aren’t humans just like you. We should never underestimate —“
“I know about it, and we are totally prepared. Just trust me. Let me talk to them. I know that I am no Eidonian. But my words could ever reach them!”
Lierre is somehow trusting Saki’s brave will and trust. Then, she said, “Okay, just remember that we should all stick together this time.”
“That’s why…” Saki said and commanded, “Idol Chasers, Stage Start!”
“S.I.F. !!” responded the everybody else.
And all together, they went outside.
When they all went outside, the surroundings are somehow deserted. There was no sun that lights the entire land — as if it is just like walking around the outer space. And the skies are dark, and was having the stars to twinkle instead.
And so, everyone has walked into the lands.
“Planet Eidos,” said Chiharu. “I feel that I am just like walking on a moon!”
“Huhu…” said Aika and complained, “I do really hate in walking in any deserted places, whether hot or cold!”
“This trembling cold…” said Gen. “I can feel an evil presence! Keep your eyes open, everyone!”
“I think Gen is right,” said Komari. “I had to get my pistol ready!”
And so, one by one, the Eidonians have finally surrounded them. They are somehow in a form of female humanoid fairies, in appearance.
When they were surrounded, one Eidonian has recognized somebody here. And she asked, “Is that you… Lierre?”
When Lierre heard that, and she saw her, she replied, “Dianthus? So, you had finally found me.”
“Lierre, you had been missing for many years! Finally, you came back! And who are these people among you?”
“They are my friends. They had helped me to reach back here. It is a long story to tell.”
“But then, our Eidonian ethics should not be broken! Anyone who is not an Eidonian should be thrown into the Ars Realm, or the Prison of Eternal Age!”
And so, the Eidonians have begun capturing Chiharu and the others.
“Wait, we can still talk about this!” Lierre persuades. “Please give me enough time to explain!”
“No need, fellow,” replied Dianthus back to Lierre.
“Mikako Kira and the Black Lace Ribbons are coming soon to conquer our world! Believe me or not, none of you shall survive against them!” said Lierre.
When the Idol Chasers are in the verge of being thrown into the Interdimensional Portal set by the Eidonians, Dianthus has commanded to halt them. And so, the Idol Chasers were finally saved.
Saki finally joins into the conversation, and said, “You don’t seem to be bad people! Please, take us to your master. We can talk about the Black Lace Ribbons!”
Lierre finally talks to Saki and said, “Saki, you should stay out of this. Just let me be the one who could talk to Dianthus this time!”
Then, Dianthus said, “Alright, we shall be taking you to Queen Xenia right away. You can discuss something to her.”
And so, the Eidonians had taken the Idol Chasers to the center kingdom of the Planet Eidos.
At the kingdom, they had finally met Xenia, the Queen of the Eidos Kingdom, in the Planet Eidos.
“My dear daughter… Lierre! You are back!” said her.
Lierre finally hugs her mother, Queen Xenia, after seeing her after many years.
“Mother, it’s been a long time. I have finally returned!”
Chiharu is looking at Lierre finally reuniting with her true mother. And she said, “I see. So, you were an Eidonian after all, Lierre.”
Saki finally knows that Lierre is an Eidonian. And she said, “And now, she has finally return to her home, which is Planet Eidos. This is the place where she came from, originally.”
Queen Xenia finally talks to Lierre, and asked, “Who are these unwanted visitors, my dear Lierre?”
Lierre replied, “It’s a long story. What conflict are we facing right now is with the dark rivals in the darkness, the Black Lace Ribbons, which was led by Mikako Kira.”
“I see. So, Rhadamanthus has finally expanded his dark army, huh? What is he up to now?”
Suddenly, an explosion was heard, and a group of Eidonians were finally fainted in the battle. When they heard of the explosion, the Idol Chasers and the other Eidonians have went outside.

And there, they had finally met their long-lost enemy in meeting, along with the other Black Lace Ribbons members.
Along are Mitsu, Seiba, Eru, Aru, and Mikako Kira herself.
The Idol Chasers were finally surprised and they had finally met the entire Black Lace Ribbons members.
“Mikako Kira!” said Saki to her.
“Yo!” said Mikako to the Idol Chasers. “It’s been a while meeting you again, Saki Kitagawa!”
“It’s too late to run away!” said Sho as he saw many group of enemies surrounding them.
And so, Chiharu finally gets an opportunity to meet Mikako Kira, Saki Kitagawa’s formidable rival, once again, face-to-face.
And this ends the Episode. Lierre finally narrates.
“The Idol Chasers has finally stepped into my homeworld, which is found to be Planet Eidos. And from there, Chiharu finally finds out that I am an Eidonian. But then, this doesn’t really explain enough of my own history. It is because, they haven’t found out the true mystery behind with my inner other self’s true identity and origin. What this could be? And I can’t seem to find that in my Digitariel, the digital tablet book of my own memories that Honoka has given to me.”
Mikako Kira and the Black Lace Ribbons have appeared in front of the Idol Chasers! It is really too late for them to escape, and they were either defeated or captured.
With everything else on the line, Chiharu was really destined to be the holder of Lierre’s important memories, as a School Idol Oracle.
Next time on SIF Journal Log 3rd Season, “Digitariel“.
Catch your dreams, and aim for victory!
