Oops posted the wrong one!
Where do I buy one?
Where the hell are subs?
Wait, that's my job. Rest assured that they're being worked on.
Ichigo is really photogenic.
Are there English translations for the character profiles on this page?
It's cool at least you're not as late as Doremi yet so... Try to get it out before the next episode airs that's all we can ask
Doremi's editor is AWOL, or so Maceart claims.
Well /a/ did it easily enough. /a/ can easily do it again!
But wasn't Ladholyman posting just the other day? Though I know how fickle fansubbers can be. Also, Suite subs have so many errors, holy crap.

Will do Off to DL Thanks Mezadevs!
I love you Mezadevs.
seeds are coming, I'm almost done.
Also, not sure if you care.
Whoops. I meant to erase that.
I was going to post an error I found in the subs and then I realized I personally don't care anyway.
SHE'S MADE HER MOVE! THE KEIKAKU IS HERE!
As if this was a coincidence! THIS IS ALL according to HER Will!
So let's go over this episode.
First, Tiara is shown to be a more competent person then we could ever imagine. Either she brilliantly decided on the same atmosphere as Hime or Mizuki did something and got that intel From Johnny and is trolling EVERYONE. Either way She's pretty freaking great.
Second Seira got some massive points in this episode! She was pretty bad-ass all around! apparently we won't get to learn anything about her band, but no problem Those massive idiots not taking Seira into Starlight! Idiots!
Third the Irony that Ichigo gave birth to the one following her. My question is Mizuki's statement on "There are many stars in the night sky." While True, Ichigo is the Sun... So does this mean she has other plans for Seira?
Finally, this Carnavel Fest seems like it's going to be the end point of their middle school career. I don't think, the way things are going, they're going introduce the Mysterious Maria yet.
I CUSS YOU
I CUSS YOU

And of course, the most important thing! Kii Episode next week! Everything is Ok-ok-okay!
This is getting kind of ridiculous
Noelle reconfirmed for best S2 character.
Aoi~tan is mai Love You~!
In order to continue to be the main character Ichigo has to win. If she loses... well... She loses everything. Seira will become the main charcter and all of Aoi's time will go to Kii, Furthermore, the three final bosses will reveal themselves.
>PuwaPri can do whatever they want
Ladies and gentlemen, your Starlight Queen
Well, the two did say "the real battle is in March."
Sleeping Kii is so adorable. And she looks so vulnerable. Makes me want to poke her cheek.
Oh dear, she looks so rapeable.
Don't do it Koro-sensei!
I want to lie on top of her as she sleeps and then gently caress her skin and kiss her neck until she wakes. Confused, she'll pretend that she's still sleeping, but I shamelessly fondle her breasts and nibble her ear while I press my leg between hers until she accepts me.
Kii only responds to sweet and gentle rape.
Trust me, I've played the situation in my head countless times.
I see. Then it would be cruel to not give such a sweet girl what she wants.
I'm glad you could see the light, anon.
I love Mizuki so much.
Fuck you for doing Sakura Trick.
Guess I'll have to request Shion dressed as Judge, with quote "I AM THE LAW!"
So there are no secret plots and ulterior motives and keikakus behind the scenes or anything. Seira is just "talented".
Not exactly. All she had was passion, but even now she is still missing important idol qualities that all the girls from the previous season have.
Seira is basically a well marketed idol. She is produced brilliantly and was told the basics of what she needs for people to think of her as a big star. She hasn't done much, but being flashy.
Just as they said in the episode, Starlight Academy is a place for the talented, the chosen ones. The one born to conquer the idol industry. On the other hand Dream Academy is a place in which everyone can become a star with enough marketing, pretty dresses and big booms.
It's basically talent vs mind-controlling "hardwork".
>Yurika-sama has gotten almost NO screentime in the whole of S2
Why must I suffer?
>This time no episode recap
>First scene with Seira
A Seira episode...?
Who's watching this?
Remember to watch all shows that feature Ran's VA, /ai/. She's fantastic.
It's on my backlog.
Dude, it's five minutes per episode.
All I know is that it exists.
I remember some info about some singers for characters changing, but nothing concrete. Could someone refresh my memory?
I din't enjoy this eipsode that much. The live at the end was just tacked on.
Wasn't this shop in Yuru Yuri too?
>Remember to watch all shows that feature Ran's VA,
I tried to watch Hamatora because of this, but she barely said a word. It's not worth my time.
I will get around to watching Fantasista Doll at some point, though.
At best this is what we call
The Seira Origin Episode with THE FINAL COUNTDOWNNNNNNNNNN Beginning. It's time to Blow this scene, get everyone and the stuff together, ok 3, 2, 1, let's jam!
It would help if you pointed it out. You know how I like to fix everything possible for the batch.
Also, Seira should've stayed a rock star. She actually looks unique here, and it feels as though she belongs out on the streets with her guitar.
I can see how the anime is trying to show us that Seira has possibly even greater potential than Ichigo by saying that at her current state with clearly stated goals and a good producer she's evenly matched even though she's missing vital idol qualities (primarily the ability to smile). But on Ichigo's side, it feels as though she still doesn't have a clear goal. I don't think she's even stated her desire to become the top idol a single time this season. It was always her goal to reach Mizuki, but she stepped down to go behind the scenes. Ichigo only sees Seira as a fun rival, but that isn't going to make Ichigo reach for even greater heights as an idol. The more I think about it the more annoyed I get that Ichigo is just on cruise control and not being active in doing anything.
Ichigo needs somebody to motivate her. She'll probably lose to Seira in March. Seira needs to announce something big, and Ichigo will need to compete.
You know, that's an excellent commentary. OF course things aren't helped that we aren't seeing the Starlights train endlessly. The thing is though, with Mizuki gone, Ichigo IS a top idol. She's shining far brighter then the SLQ who is warming up the stage for her. I don't think being at the top is the most important thing to her right now. She's getting off on all the smiles she's putting on the fan's faces both hers and Seira's.
There will probably be ANOTHER character building episode before March. This is one of the moments we can be ensured of main character victory I think. That would have been the time to introduce Pieces though so... maybe not?
Darn... I can't really bump the thread frequently. Busy with something.
Use something that will post for you once in every 30 minutes or something.
Or you know, stop carrying.
Noticed this while I was watching the episode. If things continue the way they are, Seira is going to overtake Ichigo. And that makes me very uncomfortable.
Also, I find it hard to believe that the DreAca carnival was really a coincidence. I still think Nao is a spy, or something else is up. I'm sure Hime has the connections to take down DreAca. Why hasn't she done so yet?
Noticed this girl running on campus while Seira has her treadmill. Makes me wonder if Seira might have gotten special training equipment.
Nao aside, what if one of our own idols is a traitor?
I can only think of Kaede meeting with Mizuki behind the scenes.
I do kind of like how they're building up this anticipation. I hope that we get some real character building and training before then, and I also hope that this last episode is the last of the rivalry bullshit.
I've been thinking and aren't the treadmills at DreAca really dangerous? If they fall, they get flattened
That's nothing compared to what the Super Idol is capable of.
Her? I doubt. More like Yurika, or the third wheel of PowaPuri - Shion. Hell, it may even be Aoi with a "I want to make it more interesting." Guess who was the first person with the idea of someone leaking the information. Guess who was the first person to say that Nao may have done it. She is entertaining the shit out of herself.
I can't see it.
Seira is killing Aikatsu, remove her instantly
Does Soleil make you this happy?
You asked for it!!
>implying Seira isn't merely a pawn in a grand scheme
>implying it's not Mizuki's doing
It was Johnny! It was ALWAYS Johnny! You KNOW it was JOHNNY. Mizuki could get ANYTHING from Johnny
Oh right, someone mentioned last time that Swing Rock was Seira's own brand. Didn't see that in this episode, but it makes sense with all the cats on the coords.
Even his dancing moves? Nah, I am joking. I meant dick.
In other news:
Are there any gifs of the dance this episode?
Is PRRL ending this season?
Wish I knew... Hexer is our expert.
They sure are close.
Judging on what I know. From completing AD. Things are starting to wind down. The Drama is starting to spike I have a feeling it WILL end this season. It won't go another one.
IT'S ME ICHIGO!!!! IT'S ME ICHIGO!!! IT WAS ME ALL ALONG ICHIGO!!!"
In the concept stage, I could see him or Hime try to bring Beautiful Moon back as a surprise comeback show. It's not like it's completely impossible Mizuki didn't know about it from the earliest stages of the idea.
The problem I'm finding with how Sunrise is treating DreAca's theme is... So far the three DreAca members we know anything about... are exceptional individuals. I mean each of them had a seed to be an idol. Kii was the closest to being a normal girl, but her production instincts aren't something that was taught. They're pretty natural. I'd like it if there was someone that actually exemplified DreAca's ideals.
They didn't thought that far. DreAca is just a tool to keep the story going easily with a new and very stupid at that rival plot.
Kii never wanted to be an idol, so I wished they kept her as just a producer. It's amusing that she suffers so much when she does idol activities, but I also don't like how she's so successful so quickly. But maybe that says something about her abilities as a producer.
I wonder why Sora wanted to be an idol. All we saw in her backstory was her love for designing.
She was great this episode.
Let her in.
Into your heart
Well the next episode should be interesting in that regard. I wonder if it's going to go as the preview stated. The poor thing is gonna have a panic attack
Any specific part you want? It's hard making gifs of long dance sequences because of filesize.
The appeal would be nice.
Here you go. It's just a simple error. I can tell what it's supposed to say and it doesn't interfere with my understanding of what's going on.
Here you go.
>Didn't catch it the first dozen times watching the exact same scene.
Welp. Guess I was most concerned with fixing the ladle->scoop part that I glossed over the rest. It will forever stand as a testament to our first episode.
Thanks, Anon. I now can't get the image of Ichigo giving Johnny-sensei a Stone Cold Stunner out of my head!.
I wish she'd draw Mizuki more often.
tis not enough. Well, I suppose I should be happy she drew Mizuki at all.
Yeah. She only did one Mizuki drawing in her latest image set.
Otome is about to get floooored.
Is that the same guy in every image or do nips really like plaid?
Those look like different people to me.
Apparently plaid shirts are an otaku thing. I don't really understand why.
It's pretty much the default dress for any young Japanese male who's not yet a salariman and who isn't auditioning for a visual-kei band.
Solid t-shirt, jeans, plaid, messenger bag. I bet if you walk into Uniqlo they have them all lined up like that so people who don't know how to dress themselves can just walk buy, grab one of each, pay for it, and walk out.
Maybe it's their yellow star
So she DOES have a character model. What the hell, Sunrise.
I think it's been long enough to make this call.
Am I the only one who abhors everyone at Dream Academy? I gave Seira a chance. Gave Kii a chance. Don't even remember designer girl's name but I don't like her either. I just dislike them. Especially since they take screen time away from idols like Kaede or even Shion who should have become an actual character by now.
Felt the same way at first. Nobody seemed to agree though. I'm very slowly warming up to them, but nobody in DreAca is as likeable as the Starlights.
Kii was great in the first few episodes. As a background character, she's about as good as any of the forgotten Stalights (Yurika, etc). Sora has potential, and I'd like to see her interacting with Ran and possibly Hikari.
Seira just shouldn't be in the show. There isn't anything good about her character, except for the "if you're do, then I'm re" moments that pop up occasionally. Those are the only times where she feels like a rival.
I really want to see more Shion her Alice episode was pretty fun.
I like the DreAcas because they aren't walking catchphrases and one-scene wonders like some of the Starlights.
>Anata ga do nara watashi ga re
>Kuru kuru kyawawa~
I still like them.
I like Sora but she's not as great as I thought she would be.
Kii is, well, I'm not sure about Kii. At first she was annoying but she's okay now.
And I hate Seira. She just seems so empty and lifeless. As for her winning so often, I wouldn't mind at all if they actually showed her working for it. It feels like everything she gets is handed to her rather than her earning it.
>There isn't anything good about her character, except for the "if you're do, then I'm re" moments that pop up occasionally.
Well I hate that. She needs to knock that off. Maybe it's good that she's competitive, but it's like she has a one-track mind.
I thought it was wonderful that she was inspired by Ichigo before I watched the episode, but I'm not so sure anymore. Look at how Ichigo and Sakura reacted to seeing Mizuki perform for a comparison. Instead, it's like she saw the idol world as a challenge –she just wanted to conquer it.
She just wanted to make her sister happy, goddammit.
By Noelle's own accounts, she already did. Is Seira just insecure? Or just really possessive?
Noelle causes anyone who lays eyes on her to want to make her smile the most. If they are unable to do it, they will go to any extreme to fulfill her wish.
Noelle will probably be a better idol than Seira.
This will happen. Sunrise won't let me down.
Noelle and Raichi will become the new Masquerade.
Why is she so perfect?
>yfw she makes Seira perfect
Just look at the beautiful face.
Wow, that wasn't quite as English as I had originally intended.
Beautiful Moon changing the tides of Aikatsu
Tonight I will remind them.
She keeps eating them but does not get fat....explain please.
mfs had my back
I'm more concerned about the fact that the box never gets empty.
Is there something I should know?
I love you SHiN. With all of my heart.
>Chinese Vampire Yurika
What exactly is going on this image? Ichigo is marring Ran, not Aoi? Fuck that.
Who wouldn't want to be Ran's wife?
Ichigo. How could you think otherwise.
My heart, I am certain it stopped beating for quite a while at that scene.
That cuteness is criminal, I vote her for being best postergirl ever.
Why are her legs broken?
They're not. weird angle, maybe.
Anyone know the IchiAoi Pixiv tag?
いちあおい is not it.
Nevermind it's いちあお
Will I like this series if I liked love live and AKB?
I mean this one is for actual little girls, is it not?
A spy, huh...?
It was an okay episode.
Do you even like Aikatsu! anymore?
It was too Seira-centric. Her back story is okay, but... it's just 'okay'.
I wonder if there'll be even more words to add to the Sora Dictionary in later episodes.
I wonder what must be going through an artist's mind when they design a uniform that has a jacket with that kind of low-cut collar. It's so lewd. I love the fanart it inspires. I think it has become my new fetish.
Fuck. I'm stuck in Aikatsu remixes.
Stop forcing the DreAca nitwits on us.
Give us more of the girls we know and love.
When is Aikatsu going to get good again? There have been a few decent episodes this season, but all the nice slice of life moments are missing.
Why are these threads always so dead, worse than Nanoha.
I take it it's Ichigo's VA singing.
We discussed things earlier after the subs came out. The arguments about DreAcas aren't too bad either.
Daily reminder that Aikatsu! is Perfection.
Seira is meant to be the idol who can rival Ichigo's radiance, but the interaction between them is completely off. Seira only cares about surpassing Ichigo and hanging with Kii, and Ichigo could care less about the rivalry, she just wants to enjoy herself with new friends. She's terribly inconsistent with her rivalry too. One minute she's a friendly rival and the other she's not.
Kii and Sora are meant to introduce the other sides to the idol world, producing and fashion. I think they shine best when they're shown enjoying what they've set off to do. It's a shame Sora doesn't get much screen time after her debut, but Seira is undermining what Kii is about. Kii is a producer, but Seira seems determined into making her an idol.
Also, I don't believe DreAca should even exist. The DreAcas interact with the Starlights like they're students at the same school and everyone other than Seira treats each other like actual friend rather than rivals. Even Orihime and Tiara don't really treat the school's rivalry with any seriousness much anymore.
One would say, that these threads died of IDLE ACTIVITIES.
This thread is not dead!
We'll see what Otome has to say about that!
>Starlight Queen saving the day
But using Weapons of Mass Love You when peace enforcement is still at the scene is dangerous.
Dead thread. Dead fanbase.
I want an Aikatsu remix of "Witch Activity."
I might be gay for Kaede
You now realize that Otome's original speech tic was her shouting /ai/! instead of "hai".
With all the DreAca girls in place of the tower witches.
ALL DAT FREEDOM
And "W" instead of "rabu yuu".
Is there a bigger version of this picture?
The only one I found is this one, but it's obviously not very high quality and I can't really save it.
Pretty sure this is it.
Yup. That's exactly it. Thanks!
BD release when? If the second season is getting one, then the first should.
It's not small deal. It might result in severe case of MABUSHII.
Needs more twintails Ichigo.
I finally watched the latest episode after procrastinating for a bit. I still dislike her but this was a nice episode for Seira. All that jounetsu.
And Kii is a terrible manager for tying Seira's hair into a ponytail. That one anon was right when he said she's more likable this way.
Reverse character development: not even once.
Th-That's NOT odayaka!
>Ichigo was the only one who was animated in that shot
Oh Ichigo, continue being radiant
Why is Ran flipping the bird?
Why is my Aoi so lovely, /aoi/?
Because you're delusional.
Here I come to save the day! Migh---

This is fucking awesome!

Sunrise does not seem to agree
S2 is far from over, Anon!
Wait, I think I got what actually's going to happen near the end of the first half (and hopefully not after). Seira is going to have a development episode, and then get a clean victory off Ichigo (no matter how much we may hate it). To make matters worse, it'll be revealed that she gets the chance to stand on stage alongside Mizuki in her revival concert. Even though Ichigo will show a brave face, she'll really be depressed that night. It's then that she remembers the letter from Aoi that she never opened. Taking a look inside, she realizes her true dream, and gets the strength to come back and dazzle the stage with an even greater aura than ever before.
That sounds plausible. But when will the forgotten starlights return?
But they havent even gone over whether or not you can still aikatsu past middle school.
They have. They mentioned once that Starlight has a highschool division.
I wonder what that "Powa Powa Puririn Ticket" is used for.
Do you know when it was mentioned?
Not off the top of my head, but you can probably find it in the archive.
Off to episode 23 then. Thanks to both of you !
That sounds amazing.
Oh, and is there a link out there for Hikari's CD?
Funny, I found the link when I was trying to find a site to buy the CD. Apparently 320 kbps:
Thank you so much.
