And next week, back to your regularly scheduled… schedule. Of subs. For Aikatsu Stars.
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.
Yes, it took until the last minute. Yes, it was absolutely worth all of it. This episode’s title is Little Fairy Tales, and it couldn’t have been more accurate. Before you start: What is the famous mirror line from Snow White? Also a couple (just a couple) of cosplay pics after the break.
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.
Sorry, I promise to use an image with Mahiru the next time she shows up. That weird word Koharu says is “troche”, which I’ve never heard before. Also I don’t understand the difference between that and a cough drop. And yes the lyrics for the song are kind of weird, just enjoy the visuals anyway.
And this episode, we learn what sakura means. Various notes include a shamisen player in the Ooku, a play on Papaya and Papa (close enough), and Bruce Lee. Oh, and Japanese history from the Edo Period until now.
Our previous and current encoders have leveled up their black magic skill. If nothing breaks, then from this episode on releases will have smaller filesizes and better quality. Just check out the performance for comparison.
The writing this ep was top tier, and it wasn’t even the series composition writer. I’ll be keeping an eye out for Chiba Misuzu from now on. And next episode we finally fill out the Yume generation. Let’s see how not!Mikuru is.
