Aikatsu Stars! – 020

Tsubasa means wings (not bird), and Taiyou means sun. No it is not related to Icarus. This episode is almost like a tongue-in-cheek joke about Ichigo and cliffs. You’ll see what I mean if you keep in mind who voices Tsubasa. And the title “Taiyou ni Moero” could be a reference to any number of things including “Taiyou ni Hoero” or “Moero! Taiyou”, old Japanese films and shows. They aren’t important to the plot though.

So much Dance Class, and also a hint of a new “flower” addition to the cast… I’m sure many of you know who she is, and I for one am very excited to see what happens when she finally joins. As for the next episode preview, don’t take the exact wording we used that seriously. It’s hard to hear Japanese people speak English sometimes.

There, now I can just redirect people here in half a year when the BDs come out. This episode did a great job of combining like three related plotlines into one episode. It was also written by Kakihara Yuuko, finally, after like 15 episodes off. That was a long wait.

Quick update

Apparently Aikatsu Stars 15 won’t air until next week. They showed the Pokemon movie or something in that timeslot, so the schedule’s been pushed back. I’ll let you know if something changes. Oh, and subs will probably be delayed again, this time for an academic conference. I just can’t seem to get a break.

Will the trend continue? I can only hope it does

Quite the interesting episode. It felt almost meandering and aimless in its writing, but found its way eventually and ended up being very strong.

Next episode might (read: will probably) be delayed. I will be at Anime Expo for the entire weekend. But hey, if you’re in LA we might pass by each other. It’s gonna be a good time.
