As nationals nears, Mana and her friend with Kae’s help try to figure out their probability of winning. Sadly, it doesn’t look pretty.
With nationals nearing and KiRaRe still haven’t found a way to beat Stella Maris, Kae turns to technology. She uses a bunch of supercomputers to run a bunch of simulations to predicts their chances of winning. After several attempts, there is an unbelievable 0 percent chance that they can win against Stella Maris. Is Stella Maris that good that KiRaRe don’t even stand a chance against them? I know it’s an uphill battle, but it shouldn’t be impossible.
The next day, Sayu is watching some idol performances when Mana came. Eventually, Ortensia performed on stage. After watching their performance, Mana and Sayu talked with Yukari and Haruka. They mentioned the 0 percent probability of winning. It’s quite obvious that despite winning or losing, for Haruka and Yukari, having fun is more important. Since Haruka went to junior high first, she felt a bit lonely without Yukari. They decided to form an idol group so they can always be together. Still, it’s quite amazing that they think that a 0 percent chance is too low. It should at least be one or two percent.
Afterwards, Sayu and Mana have some sort of date as they took a ride up to the mountain’s summit. Besides Mana sharing her experiences of wanting to become an idol. After they meet each other, it became possible like a closed book that opened up again.
With Sayu making that comparison to her rebirth of her idol dream, she decided to write some lyrics. Of course, those lyrics sounded like a bad poem, unless sung. Eventually, everyone seems to like it. With the rules making it possible to tweak the song, including the lyrics, composition and vocal parts.
With that, they did just that and worked hard on creating a new version of the song. Before nationals, they performed it and everyone who watched their performance seemed to like it. Is this enough to tip the needle to something more than a 0% chance of winning. Perhaps, since a simulation is a simulation is after all. ¶
