With the successful result of the µ's and their idol activities, Otonokizaka has successfully avoided foreclosure. Their Love Live! ranking also rose to 19th place in the process.

Everything seemed to be looking up for these idols. Unfortunately, in anime and in real life, happy endings don't come that easily. Honoka pushes herself a bit too far and is unable to continue performing with the group.
