Oi! Prismbros! Take a look.

So there will be another season of Pretty Rhythm, and that girl between Aira and Naru is the new protag.

I just gonna say this right now. Her design is pretty off-putting, to me anyway, and it looks a little too mahou shoujo.

Thoughts?

Cutest protag so far and I like the mahou shoujo vibes. I hope I actually enjoy this season.

Shame, Naru is a fantastic protag. But she doesn't look bad either.

>>100701939
It's funny, I thought Naru and the gang would get one more season. Even now, their chapter doesn't seem quite finished, like there was something besides cutting June down to size.
I felt like Naru didn't get to do much throughout the season, either. It really focused on what Ito, Beru and Wakana were going through most of the time. But with 10 episodes left, that's kind of impossible now.

>>100702345
This season will probably get a sequel. I hope you warm up to the protag by then.

I most likely will, I didn't like Mia at first, too. But she grew on me.

I wonder if they're gonna introduce her towards the end of the movie.

In a nutshell, the majority of trip/name users either dropped them or left and people started discussing the show more, there's still a lot of shit in those threads but it worked.
Less circlejerking, less image dumping and more discussion.

It helps that there are multiple and separate precure anime. With Aikatsu there's only one thing to discuss, which is usually the current episode. Precure has a much larger range of topics, because people start watching earlier seasons all the time.

I think if more people started watching Aikatsu, there would be more discussion as people talk about the episodes as they go through the show. But for whatever reason, it isn't popular, so that doesn't happen.

People do pick up and talk about the show while they're watching, but I'm not sure if they avoid the thread for spoilers or if they don't know if that's approved or what. We would do well with people posting opinions as they watch so that we can get reminded of things or do some speculation for the current season.

So how much do you think will we see of the Festival & Carnival? Will it just be one episode? Will Yurika-sama actually perform? Will we actually get to see Powa Powa Puririn gamba-puri~n?

If it's two days, I'm hoping for at least two episodes.

It would be interesting if there were some consequences for the school that loses. All the tension has disappeared since Ichigo returned from America.

It will be a two-part story. The first episode goes to DreAca + Seira's final development before the show down, the second episode goes to StarAca + the final show down between Ichigo and Seira + surprise reveal by Mizuki. Yurika will get some screen time, but I'm guessing the entire story will be centered around Ichigo, Seira and Mizuki.

It depends on if they release a new console game or add to the arcade games for next year so the anime has new material to advertise. As it is the best thing you can hope for is a new continuity. Get ready for Not-Ichigo, Not-Aoi and Not-Ran.

That's actually a problem most S2 with the same cast suffer. They add new characters to "spice things up" and ends up being a mess.

S2 is slowly adapting the new characters and I fear the main three will end up as supporting cast in the second half. Japan should realize people watched Aikatsu! mainly because of Ichigo, Aoi and Ran. Removing them is like telling 90% of the fan base to fuck off.

I'm in it for a S3, but please, make it not a direct continuation of S1 and S2.

I think I'd prefer a reboot too.

I think the problem now is not that the new characters are taking over, but that they just aren't doing anything. The most recent episode had Seira in it, but she didn't really feel like a character at all. There aren't any nice moments of character development like in the first season, so all of the characters seem bland now as a result.

>>100757145
Well they decided to throw in Tiara's Origins too and they made her out to be either a genius or a master ruseman. I'll grant you I wish we could see her band, but they did surprise us before bringing back Mizuki's rejects at a nice time.
>>
>>100757234
I might like to see Seira's old bandmates come to bring her back to the path of rock. Maybe. Only if it doesn't take too much screentime away from more likable characters.
>>
I have a feeling that the writers of Aikatsu have absolutely no clue what they want to do with Seira (now that they've run as far away as possible from the "arrogant rival" angle of episode 51). So instead they're just feeding us Seira things piecemeal every episode so she still has a reason to exist.

Sora has had more character exploration in 2 episodes than Seira has had in 15. This is an issue.

Disagree. The arrogant rival aspect got toned down because Seira recognized that she wasn't as good as she thought.

I'm more worried about what the writers are doing with Ichigo who despite going to America hasn't really shown that she gained anything that she couldn't have by staying at Starlight, and who seems to now be purposeless without Mizuki.
>>
>>100757672
Finding a way around it? She did rejected from Starlight and said Fuck that shit I'm gonna go put a show to this Dream Academy place.
>>
>>100757480
They keep hammering the "Seira used to be in a rock band" angle, but really, how much of her rock band life have we actually seen?

How about some actual fucking backstory beyond "She used to play rock but she's an idol now"?
>>
>>100757688
>implying she ever had a purpose without Mizuki.

I kid, she's still got the whole "Happy! Let's have fun everyone!" And she showed us the glories of Enkatsu.

You know we haven't had any Ran backstory yet, right? Not sure why so many are obsessed with backstory instead of actual development.

Well they were at the play out in public randomly stage so they weren't all that huge, maybe more info about this will come later When Ichigo pulls off something crazy to beat her.

>>100757848
That made me immediately think of what a hypothetical "Ichigo's gone forever" episode would be like, and then I remembered that we had an entire year of that crammed in between the two seasons. I think Seira would benefit from a "Ichigo leaves" plot though.

>>
>>100757882

Ran's backstory is the same as Ichigo and Aoi: two friends joining Starlight with hopes and dreams.
>>
>>100757882
>Not sure why so many are obsessed with backstory instead of actual development.
The problem being that Seira currently has very little of either. And it's been 15 fucking episodes since her introduction.

Sora, for comparison, has not had any major development whatsoever and I'm not going to pretend that she's a fascinating character in any way, but just having her backstory explored automatically made her (if only by default) a more fleshed-out character than "I'm just here doing things" Seira is at this point in time.
>>
>>100758190
Except her friend died along the way and she doesn't seem to remember her anymore. ;_;
>>
>>100757418
What we know about Seira is:
>she was in a band
>she was inspired by Ichigo to become an idol
>she likes cats

There isn't much else to her. She's been practically handed victories and ties when competing with Ichigo because the writers are forcing us to accept she's Ichigo's equal, when Ichigo has had much more experience as an idol. I understand a training arc would take too much time, but it would make her a little more likable.
>>
>>100758246
We know lots about her though. She enjoys making people happy with her music and she believes being an idol will reach the most people. She's got a slight chip on her shoulder with Ichigo since she knows her own little sister likes Ichigo more and she desperately wants to see that same smile. On her end, she's a very honest person who won't force a smile. She's extremely supportive of her friends and wants them to see their brightest shine even at potential cost to herself. Her special skill is Perfect Pitch, which is pretty good for a musician.

That's not much of a story. Where did her hopes and dreams come from? What motivated her to pursue them?

>>100758246
I think it's probably the case that the side characters get their backstories told before the main characters. Just think back to the episodes where each character was introduced – the side characters got their backstories immediately, but it took a pretty long time to get Ichigo's and Aoi's.

So Sora and Kii already got theirs, and we'll probably get Maria's pretty quickly as well.
>>
>>100758433
Speaking of, she hasn't used that skill a single time. Ichigo has leadership, Aoi has knowledge, Ran has walking, etc, even Kii has her producing and Sora her designing, and both of those directly help with their own Aikatsu, but Seira hasn't really shown anything special in particular.
>>
>>100758553
Ran was a model from Childhood. She was always in the business for as long as it matters to us.
>>
>>100758601
So why is she an idol instead of a model?
>>
>>100758663
Idols engage in a wide variety of work.
>>
>>100758590
I'd say her virtue is her competitive spirit.

>>100758663
In this world it's under the same umbrella. Like how Shion is an Idol Actress. Being an idol singing and dancing on stage is generally not what you see actresses do.
>>
>>100758433
"I like spreading music and/or supporting my friends" describes most of the cast and like the other anon said her Perfect Pitch hasn't even been used to do anything.

These two points, however, could actually lead to a great character growth arc for Seira if the writers would actually go through with it:
>She's got a slight chip on her shoulder with Ichigo since she knows her own little sister likes Ichigo more and she desperately wants to see that same smile.
>she's a very honest person who won't force a smile
These are her sources of conflict. These were the moments where I felt that Seira's situation was actually interesting to watch. I want to see how she responds to these once they become a wall blocking her way. It's just frustrating how the writers seem to be satisfied going at a snail's pace where she's concerned.

I will gladly eat crow if the next episode turns out to be the beginning of Seira's growth.
>>
>>100759485
But, it's a Kii episode. The chances of that are nil. Judging by the fact the Ultimate showdown of Ultimate Destiny is coming there should be a character episode for both her and Ichigo before then at least.
>>
>>100758705
But that doesn't really answer the question. Why not just be a model? Mizuki was also a model and wanted to become an idol after seeing Masquerade.

>>100758742
Same goes for Shion. If I were on an interviewing panel (like Seira's) asking why she wanted to be an idol and she just said that it was because acting fell under the same umbrella as idols, I would have a hard time taking her seriously.

How we save aikatsu threads :

>Stop overanalyzing a kids idol show and let's go back to having fun
>stop ignoring newcomers who want to discuss old episodes
>>
>>100759599
You never know. Considering Seira and Kii's friendship it could end up foreshadowing something. I mean, just look at the first line of the preview.
>>
>>100759644
In the real world (yes, yes, real world) girls often become idols because of other interests such as singing, dancing, or acting. They might not have a primary interest in doing everything it takes to be an idol, but it's a good way to get your name out there. Don't you remember that many of the auditions the girls take are actually open to anyone who applies? It's not just Starlight and DreAca out there, but a lot of independent girls as well. It's just strange that a girl who already had the talent to make it big in her chosen field would suddenly decide to be an idol (which is exactly what the Starlight board said to her).
>>
>>100759763
Not sure on the first point, a few times in other threads people have said that they've enjoyed the show but avoided the threads for perceived autism, mostly due to SHiN and other names/trips.
Last two are most important though.
>>
>>100760135
>He stops posting
>Thread dies anyway
How many times the thread is saved because of autism? And not criticizing Seira will not save the thread.
>>
>>100759853
>It's just strange that a girl who already had the talent to make it big in her chosen field would suddenly decide to be an idol
And how is that different for Ran and Shion? Neither needed to get their names out there. Both were recognized as talented in their respective fields from early on.

See what I'm saying?
>>
>>100760401
oh wait you said 'last two'

sorry.
>>
>>100760445
Just because they were /experienced/ doesn't mean they were /big/. But to be fair, Seira might have been talented but she was only part of a roadside band, and not even as famous as More than True. But again, there's a difference between doing something and having everyone know you're doing it. I guess in this world idols are just far more popular than any other entertainment.
>>
>>100759763
I dunno about the first one, or the last one, but:
>Stop with the seira hatefest, she will be developed in time
The main gripe is that it is taking her too long to have any noteworthy development. And it's a topic for discussion.

>Stop overanalyzing a kids idol show and let's go back to having fun
But this season doesn't feel as fun as S1. There's all this rivalry drama and introducing more characters when there were already enough.

I'm fine with Kii liking Magical Toy after this episode, except for the fact that the brand is all about magic, which has absolutely nothing to do with Kii at all.

More importantly, there are some intense Mizuki developments in this episode. The gears are really starting to turn and lead up to the season climax.

So all you need to do to turn that outfit from Sexy to Cute is replace the sash, replace the aurora motif with MORE FLOWERS, and make it pink?

Love Queen is a total waste of a brand now, so I guess it works out.

Well, it could've given them reason to draw more Love Queen. I'm being a brand only for Mizuki and being introduced so late really didn't give time to create worthwhile cards for it.

Plus since we don't know exactly when Mizuki will get back on stage, so any relevance to the brand is up in the air at the moment.

Are they even still making Love Queen cards for the game?

It would have been interesting if it happened. But then Maria would be more deserving of DreAca poster child status than Seira. Maybe she already is.

If Maria gets a seiza dress I'm gonna be pissed. I haven't watched the episode yet, but I kinda hate Kii right now.
>>
>>100842381
Honestly, the seiza dress Kii wore was pretty ugly, the other one is more Kaede's style. Sadly, it's a dumbed down one, like Ichigo's Swing Rock seiza dress.

>But then Maria would be more deserving of DreAca poster child status than Seira.

Almost anyone at DreAca would.

So we were talking about different artstyles a few threads ago, and I think this episode really demonstrates the difference between different people in charge. I immediately recognized whoever did 66 as the guy who has really distinctive lower eyelashes. They're much larger and darker than usual, which makes a pretty interesting overall effect. On the other hand, the amount of eye blinking wasn't as high as some other directors or whatever. I think I'm going to try and pay more attention to the art styles from now on.
>>
>>100854528
Why is she wearing a Spicy Ageha skirt? That brand is too lewd for Ichigo.
>>
>>100855152
Do you have any other examples of this style? Looking here (http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%82%A2%E3%82%A4%E3%82%AB%E3%83%84!_-%E3%82%A2%E3%82%A4%E3%83%89%E3%83%AB%E3%82%AB%E3%83%84%E3%83%89%E3%82%A6!-#.E5.90.84.E8.A9.B1.E3.83.AA.E3.82.B9.E3.83.88) it seems that this episode only shares important staff with a few other episodes this season.

So I think we can assume that all the new girls will get seiza dresses.

It seems that Bandai/Sunrise made it so that the girls with the same brand also have the same star sign (Kii and Kaede are Sagittarius, and presumably Maria is Aries with Sakura >>100798002). If this is true, then we can have all the girls getting seiza dresses. The question is whether it will actually happen, and how they'll handle it.

I also wonder how Maria will ask Green Grass for a seiza dress.

PR is older than Aikatsu and a lot of people dropped Aikatsu back then due to arcade game tier CG, and because SHiN was considered annoying. But hey, at least there's more people now, thanks to SHiN's beacon. If it helps, a fraction of /pc/ likes Aikatsu but they stick to their own threads.
