Aikatsu Friends! – 020

Secret best face of the episode

I felt that with this episode, I’ve finally uncovered exactly what the secret behind Honey Cat is. Exactly what is so opposite in Maika and Ema, that when one is lacking, the other is abundant. Maybe you’ll find something different than me, and we’ll all see them in a unique way. In any case, I think this will probably end the false dichotomy thing that’s been going on, and we can move into new waters again next week.

Aikatsu Friends! – 018

Would you form Friends with a ghost?

Man, there were quite a few plots going around this episode, and I personally enjoyed the
B plot and C plot more than the main one (those being Aine and Sakuya respectively). At the same time, Maika was super extra cute, so it balances out. Also, the animal parade unit is best unit.

Need more forehead Iine

Happy (slightly) belated birthday, Aine! I tried to get it out earlier, but there were many things in the way. So we’re back on schedule, and coincidentally (or is it?) two episodes weeks pass during this episode instead of the usual one. Did they know they’d be delayed this week in advance? There are some interesting surprises this week too, so look forward to it!

Aikatsu Friends! – 014

What do you mean summer uniforms only last for two months?

They would’ve needed them if they were in LA last week for Anime Expo with 110+ degree weather. What a wonderful development episode for Honey Cat, really going far above and beyond what an uninitiated would expect from a children’s cartoon. I don’t want to say too much and just leave you to enjoy it on your own, but there is one note I’ll be putting below the break, so check that out after you watch. Also, important note: No new episode this week because Pokemon decided they wanted to be so important and steal the timeslot. Episode 15 will be one week from today/tomorrow.

My own trip to AX was pretty amazing too. I don’t have a huge, emotional essay to write like last time, but again to everyone I met, thanks for being awesome. My own highlights were meeting my personal idol Okada Mari and getting her autograph (three times), all the other directors, producers, and artists I got signatures from, the magical experience of coincidentally meeting two i☆Ris members in person at the Pretty series cosplay meetup before their concert (which was just as incredible), seeing the Kase-san overseas premiere, and all the other great stuff I experienced. I’ll be looking forward to seeing some more of you the next time I venture out!
