A huge turning point. µ's audience is about to expand.
Nozomi: Elicchi... Elicchi...
Eli: What's up? Nozomi: I told everyone's fortunes with the cards... But all the results were pretty bad. Eli: Hmm...
Nozomi: For example, I drew the chariot in reverse position for Honoka . That symbolizes recklessness without fear of losing. Eli: ...But isn't Honoka usually like that? Nozomi: ...Well, yes. Honoka: Oh! Eli! Nozomi! Oh! Um... Honoka: Ha ha ha... I'll just go on ahead to the club room! Eli: I-Is she going to be OK? Nozomi: See you there!
Nozomi: Here, I'll just write out the results of my fortune telling... Eli: ...You know, it looks like you're listing our personality flaws. Nozomi: You don't really have to worry about it... Eli: We've got to be ourselves, flaws and all. Nozomi: But when we're all together in µ's, we make up for them. Nozomi: But µ's is really lucky, you know. Eli: ? Nozomi: Right now is a fateful turning point! We we have to take any chance we get! ...Or something like that. Eli: A fateful turning point, huh? Nozomi: I'm sure an opportunity will present itself soon. Eli: Well, then we have no choice but to practice and be ready for it then, right? Nozomi: That's right. What are you going to do about practice today? Eli: I need to stop by the student council office first. You go on ahead. Nozomi: Ok. See you later.
Eli: Huh? A letter? Did someone in the student council drop this off? Eli: Harasho, Nozomi... Your predictions are awesome!
Honoka: What's up, Eli?
Hanayo: We don't usually see everyone gathered together in the student council room... Eli: Hee hee hee. Kotori: Um, Eli? Eli: Everyone! I've got good news! Eli:µ's will be participating in the Love Live School Idol Festival! Together: What? Rin: What's that? Eli: ... Hanayo: Love Live! School Idol Festival is a festival event that brings together school idols from all over the country! Nico: They rent out this big auditorium, and a bunch of school idol groups put on a Live Show, one after another! Hanayo: Yes! Last time, 12 groups performed, including A-RISE. It was a huge, huge, HUGE success! Rin: Wow! Nico: I was in the audience at the last one. Between the quality of the performances, and the audience's energy, it was amazing! Hanayo: Yes... Amazing... Eli: This one's supposed to be even bigger than the last. Kotori: A-and we're going to perform there? Hanayo: Oh man, I'm already nervous... Maki: No half-hearted performances allowed, I bet. Honoka: We better start practicing! Eli: I was thinking the same thing, so I went ahead and booked the auditorium. Let's practice our Live Show format today. Rin: Great job, Eli! Eli: In return... Let's show them our best performance! Umi: I'm going to try my absolute best. Honoka: With pleasure!
Hanayo: Th-th-that was... a hard performance...
Rin: Bu-but didn't we just look amazing? Maki: Eh, I think we were all right. Nico: I'm sure I could work much harder. Rin: Nico, you're sweating something fierce... Honoka: This is really of surprising... I had no idea that this many people knew about µ's. Kotori: Yeah... I had no idea it's be like this when we started... Umi: Well, let's focus on performing a successful Live Show we sit here and bask in sentimentality. Umi: We'll finally be performing for a large audience, after all. Umi: We should do our best to project our feelings out to the crowd. Honoka: Yeah! Nozomi: Just as predicted... Right? Eli: That's right... But the important thing is what we do from now on. Nozomi: Yeah. I can't see whether or not we succeed. Nozomi: Everything from now on depends on us. Eli: Everyone! Eli: There's still time before the School Idol Festival. Eli: Until then, let's focus on putting together the best performance we can! Everyone: Yeah!
