Aikatsu Stars! – 065

It was a tough choice, but I had to pick the image with Koharu

Hey, it’s been a while. I guess that second trip across the country and presentation took more out of me than I expected. Still, here’s the most recent episode after a far too long break.

Also, there was a bit of an interesting announcement (confirmation?). Next month, two episodes of Aikatsu Stars will be replaced by a 5th Anniversary event crossover between Aikatsu and Stars! I think these will be in place of the regular episodes, so they’ll come out with the regular sub schedule. Check out the link if you want, or resist if you want to save all the fun until it airs.

Aikatsu Stars! – 064

Amazingly, my Tanabata wish this year came true

First, thank you so, so much to everyone I met at Anime Expo. All the fans, the cosplayers, the artists, and everyone else was so kind, and I just love meeting other people who feel the same way about Aikatsu. I’ll be back again, so don’t worry if you wanted to meet but missed me.

This episode comes exactly 50 after the last Tanabata one, and was about perfectly timed this year. Perhaps because of that, next week Aikatsu Stars will be on break. The following episode will be in two weeks. Until then, keep on enjoying your summer.

Aikatsu Stars! – 062

Sunsets make everything better

This was the best episode. That’s all. Maybe I’ll post my thoughts a bit later, but as usual, I don’t like influencing the viewers too much. And I’ll be putting up the banners shortly too.

And also again, this week (!!!) is AX. Super excited to be there and going to the concerts— AIKATSU STARS concert here when?

Now accepting new banners!

By now, I’m sure you’re aware that we’ve been using the same small rotation of banners for the last several years, since Etoce and I are too lazy busy to make more ourselves. In that time, we’ve done several new series, and our old ones have aged and matured. And so, we want for you creative people out there to make some for us. This isn’t exactly a contest, as I’m planning to accept any and all good submissions into the rotation. The only requirements are that the character (female, please) is from a series we have subbed, it’s a well done crop, and the image is aesthetic and high quality. Screenshots or fanart are both okay, but fanart should look nice. It should look similar to the banners we already have in terms of location and size of the character. I think that’s about it, so view and download the above image and have at it (be sure to keep it the same size 1000 x 248)! There’s not really a deadline, and you don’t need to “claim” what you want to do either—duplicates are fine.

Characters we absolutely need: Akari, Yume, Koharu

Series we’ve done: Aikatsu, Aikatsu Stars, Ao Haru Ride, Gokukoku no Brynhildr, Charlotte, Crime Edge, Kin’iro Mosaic and Hello!, Kyoukai no Kanata, OreShura, and Sakura Trick.

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.
