Yohane Descends (ヨハネ堕天 Yohane Daten) is the fifth episode of the Love Live! Sunshine!! anime series. It was aired on July 30, 2016.


As Aqours try to figure out how to improve their idol ranking, Yoshiko Tsushima, who had been absent from school since the first day, struggled to put her chuunibyou habits of pretending she is a "fallen angel" behind her. After watching one of Yoshiko's videos as her persona, "Yohane", Chika decided to invite Yoshiko to join Aqours and have everyone act like Yohane's little demons to increase their appeal. Although this identity gave them a boost in rankings, Dia promptly reminded them that it is only a temporary gain, which led Yoshiko to blame herself. Believing Yoshiko truly loved her persona, Chika invited her to join Aqours once again, encouraging her to love herself for who she is.
