It's Aikatsu Thursday!
It's that time of day again!
I'm waiting warmly.
Buy our Aikatsu! Phone. It's only 12,000 yen!
I want to buy Akari instead.
Or at least Akari daki. Ok, maybe I'm asking too much.
Thanks for Yurika gifs.
I like the cut of your jib.
See you in a bit... uh... /aoi-yuri/...?
So are we going to have less screentime for Ichigo and Yurika-sama now?
We haven't even heard of DreAce still. which is a good thing.
I will fight you. Even if I may agree with you.
>So are we going to have less screentime for Ichigo and Yurika-sama now?
I think it's inevitable.
Ugh, I already miss them.
B-b-but they were the reason I watched Aikatsu until now.
Also does anyone here like Naoto as a character or is it just me?
He was a side character in S1 and acts like that old hermit lending advice. He's still act like a hermit in S2, but he was reassigned as an exposition device for his sister. Hardly relevant. Johnny should be the one giving advice to the girls since he's a fucking teacher and Naoto is just randomly sweeping for nothing. Seriously, the grounds are fucking clean. Go mow a lawn or something.
I used to actually ship Ichigo and Naoto waaay beck when S1 was airing and back then he actually had screentime as well as relevancy. Now? He's the most minor character in the show with nothing. Pretty sad to be quite frank.
pretty much this as of S3.
Hey, he might dispatch advice to Akari now that she's new. More likely we'll actually be seeing more of Tsubasa than any previous top designer though.
He conveniently only sweeps when Ichigo's around. It's harder to stop and talk to someone mowing a lawn.
>B-b-but they were the reason I watched Aikatsu until now.
Bandai needs to sell new toys, it can't be helped. It's surprising enough we got three continuous seasons. I'm just grateful Ichigo is still here.
>Also does anyone here like Naoto as a character or is it just me?
I like his sarcastic comments, he's a good character.
I have to admit, I'm her fan.
>More likely we'll actually be seeing more of Tsubasa than any previous top designer though.
How so? At best he'll get an episode more than Makoto and he'll only ever show up when Akari needs an upgrade for her coord, go into special fashion shows like those Trend Editions, and do character episodes.
As much as Sena was in-your-face in the OP, he won't show up regularly throughout the season. Aikatsu! is Aikatsu! The show will focus on the girls and idol activities, and nothing else. It's not Designkatsu or something like that. Johnny was in the game and he was a mini-boss-like obstacle, and he got almost jack shit screen time in 100 episodes. Sena, an unknown in the game, will not fair better.
I just said more than other top designers, not a lot. We got the most of Amahane before, and this time Akari's the main character. There'll likely be the both of them (Amahane and Tsubasa) together the first episode he appears, unless the plot is going to be something like he left to make his own brand and isn't meeting her until he finds his muse.
I'm actually super excited Aoi is playing the male roles.
who is ready for some idol activities?
OH GOD. It's like the best vector ever. Why is Aoi sideways? ;_;
for ichigo giggles
also, i don't know how to do that symbol on the phone
With the symbol or not, it's one great vector. Thanks for the hard work, Anon!
I'll be back soon. Don't go away. ;_;
30 or so minutes left.
less than 10 minutes!
Ah, a brief shot of some girl in between Kii and Aoi's crepe cards.
Here's hoping for more Aoi screen time in this episode!
A very slight bit of Aoi.
However, no Kii.
That's not... fair... for Aoi. Enthusiasm for this episode - dwindled.
All she did was say odayaka ja nai
Whatever you wrote there won't get my spirits up. Yay for Hinaki, I guess. Whatever.
>[Ohys-Raws] Aikatsu! - 104 (TVA 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4
Yay... Less Aoi. Yay.
What did you expect?
More than three minutes. She got decent air time in episode 2 and... fuck, man, I can't accept this.
Aoi is dead
Aoi will come back with more screen time. Sunrise is still prioritizing the new girls.
You know she got the same treatment in plenty of episodes in season 2.
Hinaki really is a turbogenki. I don't dislike her but I think Sumire or Ichigo needs to grab her by the throat and tell her to back the fuck off from her Akari-chan. Then maybe stick a few fingers in her pussy to let her know her place.
Yeah, you're right but... Aoi got attention from the first few episodes of S2. So... I'll go watch the episode now.
>dat amazing Sumire ass
She better stay far away from Mizuki. I don't think Mizuki would be able to restrain herself from that sweet young ass and would end up raping her quite severely.
Little disappointed by the trio, no real straight man to hit the punchlines.
Her ass looks fat to me.
The tradition goes on. We're stuck with these episode intros, huh?
>There is finally a new Soleil performance, but we won't show it to you.
Oh hey it's Aoi in the first few seconds. ;_;
I think I like them.
Dammit. And they wasted Ran's intro. It was nothing special.
>I want to kill her.
Yeah. Ran was cute though.
Hinaki's VA did Mikasa in Shingeki no Kyojin. We may see some face offs fan art between Hinaki and Sumire with SnK's signature staring eyes.
Hinaki was pouring it on thick this episode
>C-Can I have Ichigo please?
Something tells me Hinaki is gonna be a clingy person.
I can't blame her.
I was about to start making a new version of pic related but then I remembered that Sumire barely has any expressions to use.
Pic related. We'll probably see fan art like these in the future.
And Akari herself is a bit clingy >>115364231
And Hinaki took Akari away from Sumire in an instant.
That reminds me, Aikatsu doesn't have characters that hate each other.
>I-I feel nothing. R-Really...!
Don't wrinkle your skirt too much, Sumire.
Good thing Hinaki isn't her roommate.
Of course. One of the best (also bad part) of Aikatsu is the lack of conflict between characters.
Was there a real reason why Hinaki switched to Vivid Kiss in the anime? She was a Magical Toy rep in the game.
1) Vivid kiss is more popular IRL
2) She wants to give Akari a vivid kiss
>I want Ichigo
Already NTR'd by the third episode.
I felt really sorry for Sumire.
>One of the best (also bad part)
This is a good way to put it.
>Look! Hinaki is not Kaede! Really!
Why is Aikatsu so lewd.
Order the accessory now and get a 20% discount when you buy the complete coord!
(shipping and handling apply)
AOI COME BACK ;_;
This Hinaki NTR needs to stop.
Sumire got blown out of the sky.
I hope Sumire will become more aggressive.
As long as she doesn't become too aggressivu.
Sumire must be panicking from inside.
It was a pretty okay episode. If Japan sees what this thread is seeing, we may see some NTR fan art and/or Sumire will get the Homu-Homu treatment.
On an unrelated note, I found an artist who is into AoiRan and I noticed something - majority of the art are sketches. I'm guessing the pair wasn't popular enough so the artists didn't bother coloring them.
You don't want yandere Sumire?
Almost wallpaper tier.
A yandere Sumire would probably be dangerous for Akari. Like if Akari and Hinaki have plans the next day Sumire might end up tying Akari to her bed so she can't go. I'm sure there are some shady types of idols in the Loli Gothic community for her to buy drugs from too. Sleeping pills, chloroform etcetera.
There's also the threat of sexual molestation. Imagine if Akari woke up naked one night with Sumire's mouth on her pussy. That would be so embarrasing!
and she definitely has the potential to go full yandere. She had been friendless and lonely her whole life until she met her savior Akari.
also, would it be more embarrassing than Akari waking up one night with Sumire's pussy on her mouth?
I can see Sumire being clingy towards Akari. She's not very sociable and Akari is her first friend at Starlight.
>Imagine if Akari woke up naked one night with Sumire's mouth on her pussy.
D-d-du du duwa do it
N-Need more Aoi. ;_;
I still try to imagine the results of Kimino Sakurako writing an Aikatsu manga.
Japan has caught wind!
Get over it. Aoi's time is over, it's now the Time of Sumire.
>that oversized head
I'm glad they improved their loli designs.
This makes Akari's breasts look much bigger.
Never. Sumire is a bad replacement. Compared to Aoi, Sumire is a bland, boring and expressionless character with zero charisma.
Yeah. Sorry for being too blunt. Aoi is irreplaceable.
She is already replaced in my heart.
You need to let it go, man.
I can understand Aoi. No one could resist that cuteness.
It's just too much.
Your love is fake.
S-shut up! She's not real in the first place. My and your love for her is not real and has never been real.
You can stay in the mud if you like, I'm just going to admire these new sets of girls.
Good for you, champ.
Today's theme is expected, but they should have at least made an Aoi art based on that episode.
See >>115367788, replace Aoi with Seira and 'Sumire' with 'girls that are better'.
Maybe I should wait for a higher quality video.
HQ versions coming soon! Pic related.
I love you too, Otome!
Did Sunrise make an actual clone? Aside from minor personality quirks, Hinaki is way too similar to Kaede. They even share the same brand in the game.
Good night, everyone.
See you in a few hours.
At least Kaede has a clone.
But I'm still not sure about her persinality.
Is there anyone that even likes Kaede? I don't know, I didn't hate her but she always just kind of felt like she was just "there".
Don't worry, anon. Seira's time will come.
I like Kaede a lot.
>felt like she was just "there"
No, that's the problem. She was almost never there.
>Is there anyone that even likes Kaede?
Kaede is not my favorite character, but she has her charm.
Help me /a/. I can't stop listening to Sumire's song from the last episode. It just sticks to me even though I don't even like it that much.
Point me to much better, catchier songs.
It's a great song, though
I'm not sure about better and catchier songs but you could listen to Oops I did it again or something just to get it out of your head.
This is unexpectedly funny.
>It just sticks to me even though I don't even like it that much.
Sumire is a witch for sure.
>Oops I did it again
bretty good for a joke
/ai/ should sing Eternally Flickering Flame or Tarte Tatain for halloween.
I like you, anon.
I didn't expect Akari to win. I'm glad to see her making progress. Akari even has a decent aura now.
Is she going to be this cute in every episode?
That's like asking if Sumire is going to be beautiful every episode.
I don't think I will be able to handle this.
I wish there's a download-all-button in twitter or something because manually saving each picture is slow. While this artist is more of a SeiKii fan, they make good art.
Forgot link https://twitter.com/blackcafecake/media
Not sure if I should be happy this artist is consplayingAoi as Nagisa. Though it used to work when Ichigo was tailing Mizuki in S1.
There's an episode titled "Ichigo Panic", I laughed at that
Dammit, don't cosplay Aoi as a student from St. Spica. You remind me of Yaya. Personally the most tragic character in the anime. Also my favorite after Chikaru. ;_;
I like you for some reason, Anon.
deader than Soleil
With the lack of Aoi screen time (dammit), the episode was still pretty good and Sunrise was clearly going back to what made S1 great. The new girls aren't overpowered from the start of the season and you can see Akari still struggling and discovering new things. She's even training to find the best pose as the new Pon Pon Crepe Girl.
Only the ded can know peace from this Aikatsu.
I'll be right back, /aoi/.
Please don't sink.
I hope Akari wouldn't change her signature.
I wonder how different Aikatsu would have been if Ran was right about this.
Oh the lengths I go just to monitor the thread.
The ratings would change from G to PG or Teen. The writers planned to add tragedy in the future episodes but Sunrise caught wind and killed their plan. It's for the best, really. Aikatsu TV is made to advertise the game and its fun and friendly nature.
^ just guessing.
Cya in a bit.
What a liar.
>Already happened etc etc
The second season would have a completely new cast.
...talk about something? Like why Aoi is Aoi?
The etymology of Aoi?
Why Aoi is?
I came here to discuss Aikatsu, not philosophy.
Aoi is spelled literally the three vowel sounds in the Japanese language A-O-I (あおい) meaning "blue". I see no sources people used Kanji for her name and if they did, her name may mean a type of plant.
Not gonna check up the wikia but her full name is based on some popular celebrity or something.
>I came here to discuss Aikatsu
Still waiting for some to show up.
I think you mean Hollyhock Mistarrow.
Right. Ao is blue but IIRC, Aoi is the adjectival form for blue. Just going by memory. Mistarrow? If that's what Kiriya means then okay. I'm still figuring out how to tell the names are based on something. Still stuck at kana.
Fuck. I'm still learning this Japanese shit.
Cya in a bit, /aoi/.
I hope thread is still around.
Page 4 in just a few minutes.
strangely enough Hinaki is not getting much fanart as Sumire.
>AoiSei gets shipping art
>SoraKae gets almost nothing
I'm alone again.
Hinaki was good and fun, but Sumire was more of a unique character. Hinaki is a lot like Kaede, and I'm guessing some people may be waiting to see more of what makes her unique.
If you haven't seen it.
A preview for Im@s Happy Theater. I'm sure Aoi Tadokoro is in there somewhere.
Seira has lost
It would be interesting if this new girl is some super classy lady. And it'd be funny if her and Seira meet.
New girl's name is Rose. Calling it.
Oh, you maybe right.
She is our Lord and Savior.
I'm falling for Ran again, she's beautiful.
I'm sure this is obvious, but Ran may portray as the prince, but as far as I can tell I didn't see her Romance coord (Aoi's coord was already revealed). Ran may do a complete role reversal and end up being the princess. Assuming this is the case, who will be her partner?
Oh come on, Japan.
I kind of want Strawberry's sweat.
I have a feeling it will be Sora no matter what.
So far I have no clue what today's theme is. Vivid Kiss, maybe?
Ran's got the sexy teacher drama thing.
One thing for sure is it's not Swan Lake. What story she suppose to represent?
Pop Special Appeal
Oh that flower thing.
At least I can't read it any other way.
I'd study it first than checking the sheets. I'm getting there!
Say hi to Rose.
Her thorns are sharp.
She must show up soon
Thanks, I was looking for this stitch.
Hinaki is a spy for Dream Academy. She will end up being the one to throw Akari into despair.
HQ version c-coming soon...!
This artist is odayaka ja nai.
still the best song
Why is Sumire's name in Katana? It's not like it's a foreign word/name or something.
How does one have a name in Katana? Is Sumire actually a Samurai?
Yurika's name is in katakana too. Loli Gothic girls sure are mysterious.
Sumire is called the Ice Flower for a reason.
Good morning, /airka/!
Sora fans do exist!
He has fairly exquisite taste.
That's an impressive collection.
Hinaki will regret this.
>May I take your order please?
Is Akari on the menu?
Calm down, Hinaki.
Akari is too cute
Would you like the whole Akari?
>Showing belly button in introductory episode
The girls aren't exactly in parallel with Soleil (Akari maybe?), but Hinaki is the group's sexy type. Vivid Kiss is a pop brand and Hinaki is too hypergenki to be alluring... I dunno.
HEY! LET'S GO CHASE TITANS!
I didn't notice the cute apple purse.
>Just meet new girl
>Already holding hands
Why does this feel wrong?
>3 episodes in as MC
Didn't Ichigo get her head handed to her for half the 1st season before winning?
To be fair Akari was doing idol activities since the second half of S2, went to boot camp, trained with Johnny B, etc. It's not surprising she won this time and it's her first legit win. It's her training paying off.
She won basically everything except that first one against Aoi and the other against Yurika.
There is no sexy type in the group. There's just Cute, Cool, and Pop types in this group, whereas Soleil was cute, cool, and sexy. The Sexy type will be this mysterious girl.
No, Ichigo almost always won.
>The Sexy type will be this mysterious girl
Her name is Rose or a Japanese equivalent of "rose". I'm already convinced that's her name.
But look what she is doing >>115441239
We shouldn't underestimate her.
You can be convinced, but even Kaede has a Japanese name. You'd be better guessing Akane or something.
She is just too sexy.
How is it allowed?
We have enough fire type girls in the group already.
Kii won it too, as well as that other girl. I don't think it's the most significant achievement anyway.
Until we get her official name, I'm calling her Rose. It's a lot easier to type than Seira 2.0.
Well it's specifically for new idols, which they all were.
I've seen some Japanese call her Niseira (nise seira or fake seira)
Oh that's convenient,
Incoming Aikatsu x PriPara doujin
It seems like DreAca is still there.
I love this artist.
Is it Thursday yet?
Sleep for 15-18 hours every day. It'll be Thursday in no time.
All sexy type idols? I'm still not sure what category Mizuki is.
Yes, Mizuki is a sexy type
What should I name my gun? I want it to be aikatsu related
Rifle is blue, so...
Me on the left.
Now I get replies after posting something good.
>he just watched the first episode
I hope he makes more.
>makes more Aoi
See you in a bit, /aoi/.
Why are the Japanese so jewy? Everything in the Aikatsu app costs money.
Wait, really? You buy a 12K phone and pay to unlock the apps?
I love Aoi. ;_;
>Self inserting as Sumire
Why can't I self-insert as Sumire when she's being shipped with Aoi?
>Aoi will never feed you
Because I'm The Boss
I know it's morning in the US, but... damn.
She is so clumsy.
I still love her~
Man, it's more than two years and I'm still here loving Aoi.
Hey, she is cute.
I really like her. Sadly she's not going to be very relevant, I can just tell.
Yeah there is no hope.
We will never get Yuu, Shion, Hikari and Onee-chan performances.
I hope this never happens to her.
Japan, you did it again.
Hikari performed in her debut, remember?
Why did they draw Seira as a featureless black figure?
That was in season 1. Two seasons ago. Two years ago.
I feel bad for laughing at this.
I hope Sunrise panders to some of their fans like an entire episode dedicated to these two.
That pairing is ded
Yurika doesn't have that word in her vocabulary.
Why hello again, Aoi. ;_;
Sumire's dance moves still aren't impressive. She tend to repeatedly use that hop-like rhythm. The repetition and horrible typesetting, made the entire song less titillating.
Today's theme is hair accessories, I think.
Well they had to animate everything twice because it's all reflected in the mirror, can't get too extravagant
>can't get too extravagant
Like how the opening theme was pointlessly butchered? But I do see they didn't put too much effort in typesetting the insert song. Thank god for that.
Pic. Currently the best typesetting I've seen in a while.
You're arguing against a person who responded to Sumire's animation, not the kfx. I'm sorry you don't like it, but I do, I've seen other people who do, and you can always press "s" to turn it off.
I was actually referring to Sumire's dancing and everything being reflected in the mirror as well, that was the cool part of this performance
Ever since adding gradient colors is the new cool. Actually there were decent non-distracting ones in S1. Guess I can't complain too much since some groups never do this or at least use minimal effects. But yeah the S key is there.
The reflection thing is nice and I may be over analyzing things. but I think the mirrors were hindering Sumire from doing extra movement. All she did was staying on one area so the mirrors will pick her reflection and do that hop-thing.
Don't do this and it's not a character quirk. I avoided Funimation because they do this thing.
Had trouble fixing her hair.
Where's the Aoi holding Aoi version?
Is it even possible to play two same characters at the same character in the game?
If you love Aoi enough, anything is possible.
Ignore what I post.
I'm checking the images and so far I couldn't find anything.
...what the hell am I smoking
Good Night, /aikatsu/
Didn't find one. Here's an SA Aoi and she perfectly fits in this school themed sequence. You know, Aoi being the Idol Hakase.
I want to play the game.
G-Good night, /aoi/.
I hope you're still around when I wake up.
Good morning, /airka/!
They had one job.
Meza help us
pripara is dead
Have faith, my friend.
