The girls are left stunned by St. Snow's performance, even though they failed to win, and the gap between them and the top school idols hits harder when they discover they ranked in last place with zero votes. After some harsh parting words from Seira and Ria, telling them not to treat Love Live like a game, the girls are greeted by Dia upon their return home. Dia explains that two years ago, she once formed a school idol unit alongside Mari and their friend Kanan Matsuura, but when they were invited to perform in Tokyo, the gap in talent left them unable to sing. The next morning, Chika lets out all her pent-up frustrations in front of Riko, with everyone remaining determined to continue being school idols and go beyond zero.
