Aikatsu Stars! – 058

Yay, Ayumi-san and Naho-san!

Yay, Ayumi-san and Naho-san!

How do you eat fortune cookies (which originated in Japan)? Do you break it first, or take a bite first? I do the opposite of what Yume does, and I think she’s crazy the method she uses. Also, I hate to say it, but this was probably my personal weakest episode of Stars in the series. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it more.

Super cute bouldering outfits. Laura wins this round

Kirara was channeling Nina this episode for some reason, but more importantly there’s some really good setup and continuing storyline going on in the background. The Star Wings are giving a nice direction to the plot and tying together everything the girls do.

I like the one on the right with the really cool sword-looking hair

I’m going to be blunt: Yume was hit with a dumbass stick right in the head this episode. She lost her memory of pretty much all of the last four episodes. It looks like Nyaa’s loss affected her pretty badly. But hopefully she’ll be better starting next week.

It's wondrous what a single episode can do for a character

Let the cat and sheep rivalry begin! Kirara was not anything like I expected, and I’m really happy about it. There are some twists and turns this episode, so look forward to it!

P.S. I don’t like Twitter but I started an account on “ripoff” site kirakiratter. You can find me easily at @Akatsukin. And don’t be fooled or scared off: it was created by an English speaking dude. The Japanese people just found it and came in droves.

I had to include Lily, but Yume's hairstyle is too cute

I wish I had made a count of how many of Lily’s “quotes” are really just made up by the Japanese and attributed to people who speak other languages, usually English. Coco Chanel has said many things, but this episode’s line does not appear to be one of them.

Look at all these cute sidles. Look at them

Really great framing with them and their new class this episode. It’s only by comparing ourselves to how we used to be that we can see the full extent of our growth.

Oh, and forgot to say. Kirara’s a sheep, and “hoshi” means both star and planet in Japanese, hence the weird terms.
