>[Mezashite] Aikatsu! - 64 [9906621E].mkv
Don't neglect your idol activities. Aikatsu! thread.
Whos voice was in the ep65 preview? I didn't recognize it.
Whose voice was in the ep65 preview? I didn't recognize it.
Guys, come on. I know some of you live on the other side of the world.
Entirely Seira except for one Tiara line.
>Why'd you oversleep? (fufuhi)
>Come here, Yurika!
>Yurika! Come on! (in English)
>I can't not not not choose!!
>I can't tell her...
yay a reply! The past few Aikatsu threads have been extremely dead.
Seira didn't deserve to come in second place. Ran should have been there.
Or Kaede, but instead she mysteriously disappeared. Poor Kaede.
Reposting the truth!
Sabotage I tell you, sabotage! They got Yurika, PowaPuri, and even Kaede somehow! Everyone falling on top of Ran at the beginning was a trap! Could this be part of the keikaku?
It's part of this keikaku at least ;_;
- Ichigo too cute
- Kii a cute
- PowaPuri a cute
- Noelle a cute
- Ringo a cute
- Aoi a cute
- Miko-san a cute
- Angely Bear a cute
- Yurika-sama a cute
- Seira a hahaha can't smile
That's my summary for this episode.
I loved it.
No Swing Rock
I hope there will be a GIF of this
She wants to be Ichigo
I'm really glad that Seira finally lost, but I felt a bit sorry for her when she couldn't smile. Too bad the character development chance got ruined when she spouted her usual line instead of thanking Ichigo.
At least they seem to be setting her up for a huge character development episode later.
So everyone excited for next week and the first time we actually see Naoto and Tiara together? It looks like we'll be seeing some of her past as well.
Pic of Johnny the shotocon unrelated.
Was last thread at bump limit or something?
I'm pretty sure it died because everyone was asleep.
Hahaha, not this time Johnny-sensei.
And Seira's past it looks like
This part was funny.
>Aoi front and center and shining
>His sister in the background
>Shion is the only one not smiling
Think of the poor miko.
>Why was I chosen to do this again?
>I've just been standing silently for the last hour
>Oh god here they come
>Jesus christ they're coming at me at a full sprint
>Oh well, I didn't need my tailbone in one piece
>I don't even like girls
I hope the next season of this is in the same universe but with a decent time skip.
I hope we get another season at all. Or five. Or maybe twenty.
I'd just prefer an AU. Same universe but new MC only serves for the old MC to come back and hog all the spotlight and hijack the show. I may miss the old cast but that kind of stuff is is very bad taste.
You mean what's happening this season, right? I want like a 10-15 year timeskip.
Well the anime depends on what the game has. If they make a new game with new cast, then the anime will get a new season with a new cast. If they just keep adding new characters to the game releases, we'll get that in the anime.
>You mean what's happening this season, right?
Here they are just adding 3 new characters to the old cast, it's way different from totally new main character and new group of friends.
>not wanting this to happen
If they turn Ichigo into a christmas cake I'll travel to Japan and eradicate Banrise, I swear.
She doesn't have to be
Meant to quote >>100055214
Ichigo a cute
Will Seira make Noelle smile before the season is over?
No, only Raichi and Ichigo will.
ONORE HOSHIMIYA FAMILY
I wish Koyasu Takehito were my dad ;_;
Is that Tiara? She was such a cutie.
That Aoi-shaped lump in Ichigo's sheets.
You know what I think Aikatsu does really well? Ichigo's dad. He's actually a pretty cool guy. You know how in many slice of life or drama series, if the dad is always away on business or whatever the MC and/or wife is bitter about it, and when he does show up he's either not exactly the nicest guy in the world or he makes a promise to show up to an important event (like a recital or a game or something) but breaks it, making the MC despise him more. Aikatsu completely avoids this.
>"Damn, he's still fapping to that Aoi chick. That does it, next time we meet I'm inviting him to my room. I'll just need to buy some rope and a whip and..."
>Idol Phantom Thief: Raichingale
>At the academy when all the idols are fast asleep
>The panties call for him to steal them!!
>(Doing her nightly rounds)
>The two of them are sleeping soundly again...
>Well done on today's Aikatsu (written: physical labor)
>I need to hurry, it's going to take a while to switch ALL the panties in here...
>Dummy panties so as not to shock the idols
>These are little girl panties?!
>But how... these aren't Nee-san's!
>This one, and this one too... Someone exchanged all of them!
>Who could've done something so awful...
>Phantom Thief Noelle!!!**
>You're as dull as ever!
>I've already taken all of Aoi-neesan's panties
>Those childish panties suit you much better.
>Be sure to take good care of them!
>Tch... Hold it, Phantom Thief Noelle!!
>At least give me one pair!
>Damn, she was one step ahead of me again... Just who is Phantom Thief Noelle?!
>I want to ask what happened to my panties after that... but then he'll realize it's me
**TN: The kanji used in "kaitou" are different than usual. Instead of "mystery thief" it's "pleasant thief". See Kaitou Tenshi Twin Angel for more details.
>Aikatsu completely avoids this.
Aikatsu completely avoids drama in all forms. That's one of the things I like about it.
All the dramatic hidden things that have the potential to create misunderstandings get revealed and talked about at the earliest opportunity. Rivalries are always friendly. Auditions are won and lost but no one gets too upset.
The most dramatic thing that has happened in Aikatsu is in the first ep of season 2 where Hime inadvertently puts pressure on Aoi, and then Ichigo turns up and EVERYTHING IS FIXED INSTANTLY.
Aikatsu is a drama-free zone.
>The most dramatic thing that has happened in Aikatsu is in the first ep of season 2
You forgot something. Pic related
Yeah, how could he have forgotten the Tri-Star arc. Man, I shed a tear or two at Ran's farewell scene.
There was also drama potential near the beginning of the series where Headmistress Orihime implied that Ichigo and Aoi would eventually become rivals and have their friendship put on trials and tribulations. Fortunately, everything's okey-dokey.
That was pretty brutal. Never again.
Everyone thought their friendship might be strained. We've seen many examples where that happened to others. At some level Aoi probably expected the worst. But they managed to overcome.
Incoming drama ;_;
I was just going to post that.
When is Telecom coming back? The movement in this episode was terrible.
Nope, you retard.
I'm not him. Are you that same Naoto troll who used to shit in these threads a year ago? Well guess what, it stopped being annoying a year ago.
You must be autistic to get this mad over a plotline that is literally brought up in the show. Aikatsu is for little girls, not you.
Shut up, nerd.
Girls are their cutest when they're in love!
Why don't you want to see this cuteness?
I don't mind, but if it happens, I can only hope it goes somewhere instead of being unresolved or ends badly.
Of course it'll end badly. They're still idols, they can't do that!
I love drama like that.
Noelle's not an idol yet.
No, but she is an I-daww
>Brr, it's so cold
>It is particularly chilly today
>No wonder it's cold...
>Otome-sama, it's the first snow!
>It's a kiss to celebrate the first snow!
>...or not <3
>Oh, that's it
>She was just copying the lyrics of "Angel Snow"...
>Let's hurry home and warm up
>(Softly from the sky)
>I've already warmed up quite enough
Discuss what unorthadox idol pairs you want to see a concert of tonight. I'm counting on you, /ai/.
>metro bitch on the left
>Seira can't even smile right.
The original is too big for /a/
Train her with Ichigo for 2 weeks, I'm sure she would smile
>Seira in center position
I hope she doesn't follow a stranger into his van for some Brain thunder.
>The only thing that really worried me was the Brain Thunder. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of a Brain Thunder binge.
Ran: Sakura, the fish bones...
Sakura: I'll remove them for you
R: The mikan skin...
S: I'll remove it♪
R: The mochi is too hot...
S: *blow, blow*
Ichigo: ...A mother?
Aoi: Doesn't she feel more like a veteran wife?
I'd never considered this. Ran and Sakura hardly interact.
Good night, /aoi/~!
So, /aik/, which of the new songs is your favorite?
Dancing in the Rain was an amazing surprise.
I can't wait for the next release.
ichigo a cute
I usually love Aikatsu OPs right away, and this time was no exception. I even like the WUB WUB
In comparison, EDs take a while to grow on me, but since I had to listen to it so many times I loved it before the first night was over
>Idol Katsudou ver. rock
It was perfect hearing this song again at the beginning of the second season, and the rock version isn't too bad. It had totally different timing from the original though, so it was a pain to retime
It's a sweet song about girls having a good time, and the unique choreography of acting like a toy robot was really fun to watch. It suits Kii really well
>Shin Chocolate Jiken
Could this be love? Enough said
>Kira Pata Shining
I wasn't so sure about this one at first, but again after listening to it several times I came to like it. Monaca is really pushing the borders of what an idol song can be, and combined with the insane use of the Aikatsu System it became an unforgettable song
>Dance in the rain
Likewise, I'm not too hot on the beginning of the song, but as soon as Ichigo started singing my doubts were blown away. It's damn hard to hear some of the background lines though
Turns out Monaca is doing all the music for Wake Up, Girls! too, so I'm looking forward to where that's going.
Well I love them all, but my ranking would be
Original Star > Idol Katsudou ver. rock > Kira Power > Choco Choco > Dance in the Rain > Kira Pata Shining > Magical Time
Original Star I loved immediately. The intro is the best.
Rock Idol Katsudou I liked from the start, but it took Ichigo singing it for me to really love it. Her episode 52 performance is still my favourite so far.
I didn't expect to love BLUE SKYYYY WUUUUB WUBWUBWUB but I listen to it a few times whenever I watch an episode now.
I like Shin Chocolate Jiken a lot. I'm a sucker for lo-fi electronic music.
Dance in the Rain is really good, and matches with Ichigo really well. I'll probably end up listening to it a lot.
The others are great too. KPS is very different, but still very good. Magical Time is super fun.
Music is just part of the equation though. Seeing them perform makes it even more enjoyable. And it's impressive how well the themes of the songs and the performances match.
For the rehashes, Trap of Love was god-tier. Prism Spiral was disappointing even though it's one of my favourite songs. We wish you a Merry Christmas… I preferred the first time around for some reason.
>Original Star I loved immediately. The intro is the best.
PowaPuri makes me powawa~n
I guess I'll answer too then :
> Kira Power
I had to listen to it a few times before I came to appreciate it. But since the entire song is quite nice, even the wubs make it a part of the song. Enjoyable once you've given it a chance, i'd say.
> Original Star
Not only I loved the ED version since the very first time, but the Soleil one was also amazing as well. One of my favorites among the new songs.
> Rock Idol Katsudou
I had grown tired of the original version, but it's a great reference to the first season. A pretty good song, but not the best for me anyway.
> Magical Time
It was nice seeing something for "just" the new characters. it has a... I-don't-know-what, like a tune you'd hear in a Super Mario game, that makes it really enjoyable.
> Shin Chocolate Jiken
Yurika and Ran duo audition on this song when? Counting on you, Banrise.
>Kira Pata Shining
Greatest surprise of the season so far. The song and the audition came out of nowhere, and I love all of it. Gipsy Sora a cute.
> Dance in the Rain
I had a "Under the Sea" feeling about the beginning of the song. Then, Ichigo begins to sing, and I instantly know I'll have it on repeat for the next few days. A happy-go-lucky song, and Ichigo's voice makes it great to listen to.
I love the visuals for the auditions in the game. I guess it's good that Sunrise does something different for the show though.
There's something unnerving about that image.
She will kill you and steal your powers.
Yurika-sama is a vampire
>Do you really want Yurika-sama to suck your blood that ba—
>I've always wanted to try having you suck my blood!
>Y-You leave me no choice! Yurika-sama will suck your blood...
>Wait, why are we kissing?! There's no way I could do that!
>We're both girls!
Did you remember to praise your Queen today?
Shion's gonna want that back.
>Aoi third place
Sorry, Ran fans.
Whatever, Ran would've preferred seaweed instead of mochi anyway.
Shion got her own.
So, when will Ichigo/Aoi and Aoi/Raichi get their own cute yet lewd doujins like Ran/Yurika did?
They did. But you will never see them.
Don't post the png.
Why not both pairings?
> straight shota
Why didn't Seira win? It worries me because I'm still under the assumption that her victories have been arranged.
This event would've been hard to arrange for someone to win. Nothing tried to distract Ichigo.
What about the sweets stand? The plan failed because only PowaPuri fell for it.
She fucking did. Cheated on episode 01 with a fucking PREMIUM constellation dress against someone who has no constellation dress. She probably rigged the Choco Tantei audition or that she was carried by a superior idol Kii.
Ichigo's aikatsu is too passionate to be swayed by a mere sweets stand.
Aoi is mai Love You~!
What's up, my /ai/friends, how is your night going.
Let us circlejerk right here and now.
Not interested in Kii. Sorry.
She had nothing to do with this, you bully...
Koromo is cute.
Is she fanning some gas?
Which idol would you want to cheer for you? Though I am an Ichigo oshi, I think the contrast of having the usually refined Sakura in a modern style cheering with all her heart would just make me want to Fankatsu until I dropped.
Oh that's easy. Soliel.
They'd have to kiss to make that more obvious.
>getting introduced to AKB48 over the weekend
>kinda like Takahashi Minami
>she's Sora's VA
Damn you Wikipedia
Go watch Majisuka Gakuen.
Thanks. I will.
>So this is an ema?
>I'm supposed to write my wish here?
>Japanese culture is so interesting!
>Made made made it...
>Hey, you look pretty tired. Are you ok?
>Y-You're Starlight Academy's Ichinose Kaede-chan...
>I probably won't won't won't place now...
>Are you dropping out?
>I need to finish... I may be a producer, but I'm also an idol
>Seira is running in sandals... I need to show her and all my fans that I can do it too...
>Let's go together!
>Huh...? B-But but but!
>You don't get a chance to race for your fans every day. Do you want them to feel sad when they see you running in pain?
>Goal! Starlight's Ichinose Kaede-chan and DreAca's Saigusa Kii-chan reached the goal hand-in-hand!!
>Their smiles are blindingly bright!
>Ah, Seira, did you see me reach the goal?
>I heard you got second! That's ama-ama-amazing!
>What is it, Seira?
>Could I carry you sometime?
>And maybe give you a piggyback ride too......
>Eh?! Why why why?!
Thanks, I can sleep peacefully tonight.
It's dangerous to sleep alone, take this.
I want those boots
So how do you think Kii is going to meet Magical Toy's designer?
Oops, that thumbnail was deceiving. Take this image instead.
>Kii wants to meet Magical Toy's designer
>He's in America at the time
>Ichigo and Kaede offer to take her
>ADVENTURES IN MURRICA
>Info revealed about what Ichigo actually did in America
>Seira tags along because she must be EVERYWHERE Ichigo is.
This would be nice.
I would not mind a group graduation trip to America for the Aikatsus between middle and high school.
What's going on here? Is that a Seira daki between Kii's legs?
I'd love it just for all the gratuitous English.
I wish I had saved that collage with all the Starmiya engrish
Is is delicious cake you must eat it.
why u do this
It's a word, in Japanese.
>we will never hear take me higher again
Kill me now.
I'm glad of it. It was my least favourite song by the end of the first series. There were plenty of other songs that could have been played more times, to balance things out.
>there will never be a variety show episode
Sometimes the CG in Aikatsu scares me it's so good.
If only we had known back then.
Next episode will be about DreAca's headmistress and since Setsuna is in the preview, it will shed light on any connection between the two.
I'm betting they're romantically involved.
>I tried picking this up as soon as it came out, but I dropped it as soon as it started screaming PRODUCT PLACEMENT in my ear. Does that shit continue or was it a one off thing?
This. I think because of how it was played so much during the Tristar arc, I grew to dislike it more and more.
I want to see Ichigo and the others' reaction to Naoto being Tiara's brother.
They have different surnames, so either they are cousins or Tiara is married.
More likely the latter, or their parents could be divorced, etc. But he IS her younger brother. He said so specifically in the Bandkatsu episode I think.
I want to press my fingers all over that vampire butt
>Stayed up so late at night that she overslept
Cute. Now I want more Kaede x Ran pictures.
So, are you one of the TLs of LL, or what? Just curious.
I did the script timing and video encoding, but I'm unofficially a QC'er. I report to the translators when I find something odd in the script (possible missing lines, odd lines that has no context, and explaining the jokes) while timing the episode.
And in case you didn't realize... I'm the resident Aoi poster here.
dead thread. dead fanbase
Sorry, but it's sleep time. Maybe tomorrow I'll wake up as the little girl.
That's not the real SHiN.
SHiN died in that storm that hit the Philippines. RIP.
You're lying! Lying is bad!
Oh hi there. Slow thread as always, eh?
Oh you all badmouth SHiN, but I bet if he actually went away, you'd all miss him
If it was Ran, Yurika wouldn't be as against it as she looks in there.
Summer of Soliel comeback tour when?
Keep the thread alive, /aoi/!
I'm usually the one to come up with discussion topics... but all we can do is wait to see how Naoto/Tiara's thing plays out. I wonder if Mr. S will show up too.
Naoto and Tiara are definitely related somehow. My guess is that she's his sister, because Naoto's sister has been mentioned.
This is the best dress.
It isn't as overdone as some of the dresses, but I'm not sure about the colours.
>he doesn't like that glorious iridescence
The simpler wingless Angely sugar dresses are best dresses.
Oh wait, is the far right made by Angely sugar or is it just the school outfit in a different color? I forgot.
This one of Aoi's is pretty damn nice. I like how they gave that little explanation of why it refracts light like that, even if they have to massacre animals to get it to work.
It's Starlight's new default outfit. Old one pictured (this is the second instance by the way, after the first CG update).
It's the school outfit.
This is something I could actually wear just like, everyday. That's a really charming aspect of it.
These and pretty much everything from Magical Toy are my faves.
Second best dress.
Which episodes do you think look the best? The style varies with each episode, but the ones storyboarded by Yuichiro Yano (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=449) all look the best to me.
Best Good Coord
Second from left isn't Angely Sugar. It doesn't have a brand, but it's a Good Coord.
They look retarded.
That pic is my least favourite style. I thought the Idol in Wonderland episode (43) looked consistently good, as well as The Underground Sun (8) and Hello☆Super Idol (34). Those stand out as my favourites in style.
It did look nice.
I wish Telecom would come back. Aikatsu just looks bad now.
Which is the worst looking episode? I don't think any episodes in the first season come close to those in the second seson, in terms of badness.
Yeah, the QUALITY has really ramped up.
1. Episode 51 (That Rocker is a Dream☆Girl)
2. Episode 39 (Go get 'em, Soleil!)
3. Episode 58 (Magical Dancing♪)
Was episode 38 really that bad?
Nah, episode 39.
Oh, I can't read.
I think that style is closest to what the promo art looks like. I like it.
