Aikatsu Stars! – 055

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.

Are you prepared?

Are you prepared?

A hero always waits until the last second before making his dramatic appearance. With this, the first season of Aikatsu Stars is complete. It almost feels like yesterday I was staying up all night to finish Aikatsu and praying for the new season to be good. I hope you enjoyed the show as much as I did, and I’m looking forward to another year with you all.

Thanks again to those of you who came to see my panels at AB last weekend. It does mean a lot to me to meet you too, and I hope you enjoyed my talks. Know that only death can stand in the way of getting my subs out in time. See you again soon.
