Showing the chairwoman their promotional video, Mari told Chika and the rest of Aqours that they did not know what it was that made their town and their school great. After Mari proclaimed she knew better herself, Chika decided not to ask about it, considering it something they had to figure out for themselves for it to be worth something.
On her way to the clubroom Chika spotted Dia on stage in the empty auditorium. As Dia was leaving the room, Ruby stopped Chika from calling out to her, and a flashback showed the third years seemingly right before a school idol performance. In accordance with Uchiura tradition, all the town members gathered early in the morning of the first day of beach season to make and release floating lanterns.
Getting to Tokyo, the school idol club sans transfer student Riko tried not to let on that they were from the country side, without much success. Although the two girls were strangers to Chika and the rest of Aqours, Sarah recognized them from their PV and asked if they were in Tokyo for the upcoming event. The Saint Snow members then left, leaving Aqours impressed with their acrobatics and singing skills.
The next day, Chika went out for a run and visited the place where she first found out about school idols, UTX High School. There, the rest of Aqours caught up with her and the six of them saw the next Love Live! Aqours decided they wanted to enter the competition. At the event location, the Aqours members were surprised to find out the girls they had met at Kanda Shrine were school idols, too. Sarah introduced herself, and the episode ended just as Saint Snow were to take The Crying Mountains (Bonus Song) stage.
Having been given the results of the audience poll used to rank the groups at the event, Aqours learned that they not only placed last, but also got zero votes.
Approached by Saint Snow, Aqours was complimented on their performance but told they might be better off giving up competing in Love Live! When Dia arrived at the scene, Ruby ran into her arms, crying. Dia talked to Aqours about their placing last, saying she was afraid it would happen, considering how tough the school idol scene had gotten. Riko followed Chika The Crying Mountains (Bonus Song) the beach, who, after holding all of her feelings in for a long time, finally allowed herself to cry and let out her frustration about all of their hard work not bearing fruit.
However, Kanan said she was not going to become a school idol again and that she did not want to talk to Mari any more. At school, Kanan and Mari got into a heated argument, which made Chika burst into the room and yell at them to break it up, and to come to the club room of the school idol club after school. There, Kanan continued to claim that the fact she could not sing in Tokyo was the reason she had quit being a school idol.
Once she had left The Crying Mountains (Bonus Song) room, the other girls pushed Dia into revealing that Kanan did not sing at the event to prevent Mari from performing with an injury, and that she quit being a school idol because she did not want Mari turning down other opportunities.
Initially intimidated by a competing snack bar on the beach, Dia quickly took charge and assigned tasks once she received encouragement from Mari. Riko, Chika and Kanan begun advertising in order to draw in customers, seemingly somewhat unwillingly.
Meanwhile, You, Yoshiko and Mari started cooking the food. Dia tried to hold a lesson on Love Live! Chika and You struggled to find harmony in their dance, Chika being accustomed to the way Riko performed the dance moves. The night of the Love Live! To them, what mattered was winning and following in the footsteps of their predecessors. Together, both groups watched the announcement of the Love Live! Chika and Riko said the visit had brought them closer to the answer of their question.
On the train back to Numazu, the nine of them took a stop to look at the sea. They decided that what they were running towards was turning the zero into a one. In the end, although only Aqours would be on stage, all the other girls decided to cheer them on from the audience. Before their performance, the school idol club members reflected on their time together. Ruby and Hanamaru were embraced by Yoshiko, while Mari, Kanan and Dia thanked each other for getting this far, and Chika told You and Riko she wanted to enjoy everything the future had in store together.
Prior to performing their song, Aqours introduced themselves by telling the audience their story and their goal. The Aqours supporters of the audience ran down to stand next to the stage, creating a circle of blue light sticks around it. Meanwhile, the number of applicants for the school flipped from zero to one.
During their regular afternoon practice session on the roof, the girls started discussing holding a concert at the open house. The next day at school, Aqours revisited the issue of a new practice space. Without anyone noticing the third years suddenly disappeared. Disheartened, the girls went home.
When Chika showed up at school early to tell the universe she was not going to give up yet, she was surprised to find the rest of Aqours followed a similar impulse and were there, too. Together, they decided to keep working toward their goal no matter how impossible it may seem. They were going to aim for a miracle.
With the Love Live! To make it easier on them, everyone decided to split the workload and had the second years create a song for the open house while the third and first years created one to perform at the Love Live!. Having moved somewhere more understated, they discovered that the differing tastes of the third contra the first years made it difficult to agree on lyrics and music for the song.
Ruby sent a text to Chika, Riko and You, who so far had not come up with anything either, asking them to come at once. In order to better work together, the first and third years decided to spend some time together try to get to know each other better. Having tried a couple of activities together, it was clear that the two groups did not find the same things fun.
Revisiting the idea of creating a song together, it still seemed hopeless until the ceiling started leaking. Together, they all helped place plates and pots on the floor to catch the water, and found that although the tones and tempo of the different raindrops were out of tune, they all came together to create music. Aqours tried to find a way to travel between the two venues in time to perform at both events, without luck.
With going by boat and by helicopter both out of the question, it seemed the only possible way to make it in time would be to perform as the first group and catch a bus. As the order of the performances would be decided by lottery, the group decided to let Yoshiko do the honors. The group thought the only option left was to choose just one event, but could not decide on one.
The next day Chika and Riko suggested they split the group and perform at both events, to which the group reluctantly agreed. Confused when the second years immediately ran off after the song ended, the group found out Chika had arranged for them to use a monorail for mikan transport to travel back to school.
With this and help of their school mates, they made it back in time to perform Kimi no Kokoro wa Kagayaiteru kai? Forced to come up with an idea to replace one she shot down, Dia led the group into setting up a stand at a flea market. Her expectations of getting close to the others and being addressed informally fell short as she became upset with the rest of the girls not handling the task in the same way she would. Working together at Izu Mito Sea Paradise, Dia tried her best to make small-talk and play around, becoming increasingly frustrated as the others took this to mean she was angry or upset with something.
Finally, Mari and Kanan told the others what was going on, explaining how Dia, despite her cold exterior, gets lonely easily. When a class of kindergartners at the aquarium ran amok, Dia took control of the situation by being authoritative but not as harsh as usual. At the end of the day, Aqours gathered. Chika told Dia that it was best if she acted like herself, and how they all appreciate her for who she is.
Dia accepted this, and was delighted to finally be The Crying Mountains (Bonus Song) with the preferred honorific. Despite Chika saying Shiitake definitely had taken a liking to Riko, her attempts to overcome her fear for the dog were without success. While the girls were discussing trying new things for this performance, they noticed Yoshiko had gone home early without warning. Desperate The Crying Mountains (Bonus Song) find a reason to have it back, Yoshiko suggested that the dog might not have been the missing one after all.
Yoshiko explained how finding the dog had restored her belief in fate and chance encounters when she was having doubts. When the dog proved to really be the one that was missing Riko tried to cheer her up by saying she believed in destiny, too.
As Chika was struggling to learn the move, everyone became increasingly more worried that she was pushing herself too far. Determined to make it work, Chika spent the night on the beach practicing. Despite Riko, You and the first years coming to cheer her on, she failed and felt that she had not accomplished anything.
Riko and You reminded her that she had forgotten to thank herself for how far they had come already. Chika initially was eager to do anything she could to help make the number rise, but was talked out of it by the rest of the girls. By 1 AM, there still were only 87 applications. Becoming more and more desperate and restless, they sent out the first years to buy something to eat.
Yoshiko, Hanamaru and Ruby talked about how they were thankful for everything Aqours had given them and how they wanted to take care of their upperclassmen. They were still six applicants short by the final hour. Everyone was on edge waiting for the last two applications to drop in during the last minute. Finally, the application page shut down.
The next day, Mari announced the news to the rest of the school. Aqours initially tried to ignore what had happened and commence practice as usual, but stopped when Chika started crying. They decided to call it a day and take some time to think about whether they still wanted to partake in the Love Live!. Sora mo Kokoro mo Hareru kara was performed as an insert song while everyone took to their respective houses to consider what to do next.
Meeting up the next morning, the nine girls agreed that they would never manage to shine as school idols when they had not succeeded in saving their school. Prometheus Global Media.

Retrieved 12 December Retrieved 17 June Retrieved 28 December Retrieved 30 May Retrieved 11 January James Dean Bradfield recently gave an interview in front of a big brown upright called Margaret, and revealed that he'd spent much of lockdown improving his chops on the piano.
Inevitably, switching instrument changes one's approach to writing. Your hands need to make different shapes, and you intuitively reach for different melodic runs and chord progressions. James's piano, augmented by additional keys from producer Dave Eringa, keybardist Nick Nasmyth and long-time collaborator Gavin Fitzjohn, is drenched in reverb and sustain Margaret's right pedal got plenty of actionlending the album a profoundly eighties feel.
The latter is frombut we won't split hairs. There's a glacial grace to both bands which the Manics have captured impressively: one thinks not only of ABBA's frosted Scandinavian melancholy but also the Bunnymen's run of videos shot in Iceland circa Porcupine.
Recorded in winter at their own Door To The River cottage studio in Caerleon and the legendary Rockfield 21 miles away, it's a profoundly wintry album. After a few seconds of beatless electronic thrumming, James sings "I'm walking on my own, it's A reminiscence about a four-piece Manics' early visit to Japan, it revisits the poignancy of 's 'The Everlasting' "In the beginning, when we were winning, when our smiles were genuine Even structurally, it echoes the band's past: 'Still Snowing In Sapporo' builds into a big Manics lungbursting anthem, then retreats again, then rebuilds, then retreats.
It's the band's own trajectory in microcosm. The synths are straight out of 'In Between Days', the song the Manics covered when Robert Smith hand-picked them to play his Meltdown Festival in It's followed by 'Orwellian', about which the best thing you can say is that it makes far more sense in context. The Manics are constantly caught between the past and the future, between the horrors and comforts of the former and the possibilities and terrors of the latter.
This is why Wire so often seems to exist in a perpetual present tense, cocooned in the blissful stasis of domestic boredom a topic to which, later in the album, he will return. Of the two siblings, both of whose works hang in the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff, post-impressionist Augustus is the more famous, as much for his bohemian lifestyle as his post-impressionist painting.
Gwen, however, is better known for moving to Paris and having an affair with Rodin, but withdrew to a subdued, religious life after the French sculptor's death, in stark contrast to her flamboyant brother's revelries. It is Gwen, however, who is increasingly considered more talented of the Johns by many art historians, and Wire's lyric posits a counterfactual world in which it is Gwen who overshadows Augustus.
The stories of the Johns and the Thomases are interlinked: the Thomases were both painted by Augustus John, in Caitlin's case during her early teens, during which time John raped her.
Later, it was Augustus John who introduced the Thomases. Caitlin, like Gwen, lived in France for a while. A kind of Roger Waters song. Even with the addition of traditional Celtic instruments, I still don't get the choice of this style.
Solid and well produced if familiar. Olivia has a pretty awesome voice--she can really hit and hold a note. My favorite song on the album. That's when the lead vocals switch from female to raspy male not unlike Guy Manning. Musically, this is very powerful; vocally it is neither performed or mixed as well--though Olivia hits some awesomely piercing sustained notes during the "let me go" finish.
Another top three song. The sonic scape at the opening here is interchangeable with both--though probably more with the latter. Her voice is so delicate, so fragile sounding, you think she's gonna break down and start crying. For the chorus slow drum travel signals the entrance of power chords and the amping up of Olivia's voice.
She has some pipes! Reminds me of Joanne Hogg. A solid song, perfectly performed, though nothing really new is introduced here other than standard touchstones of drama and perhaps a topic.
