Aikatsu! – 92

I wonder if coffins are actually comfortable

I wonder if coffins are actually comfortable

Hey, hey. I thought of the best Brynhildr pun just now. Too bad I didn’t think of it when it was relevant.

And on an unrelated note, why does Wikipedia seem to prefer the two-word version of compound words for article titles? There’s photo shoot, punch line, and burn down chart. Photoshoot, punchline, and burndown chart are way more natural to me.

What, you want the pun? After the break. Because spoilers.

I’m like 75% okay with the selections.

Some amount of non-negative thanks to Yuyu for something or other.

Akatsukin notes: We finally find out the name of the guy who announces everything. His name is 徳井十九 (tokui tohku), pronounced the same as 得意トーク, which translated means “skilled at talking/announcing/commentating”. Now if only that Arai Satomi announcer would come back…
Thoughts on Mizuki after the break.

Yurika-tan, love you~

There was a Yurika scene in the episode I wanted to make a gif of but I can’t find it

Looks like I’m back on Aikatsu. Been since episode 75. Yurika is the best. Aoi is like, above average. So this was pretty nice.

Enjoy the product of Aka-chan’s “I can’t lose” karaoke effects.

The v2 is because we somehow missed a line. And EinsamerWanderer, I think I remembered to use quotes this time!

Whoever wrote the script for this episode really, really liked aizuchi, which I think I explained at some point before as being short phrases used to keep conversation moving smoothly in Japanese. You’ll probably see what I mean if you listen closely. Otherwise, this episode was yappari sasuga sugoi. Yurika-sama next week.

Oh yeah, and fucking Johnny. Consistency or joke, pick one. You’ll see.

Stop trying to seduce me, Ran

Drama audition episode, and as is the usual the song was not translated. Maybe later if you bug me. Ichigo does another kanji thing with 殺陣 (sword fighting), 立て (stand), 縦 (height), and 盾 (shield) (they’re all pronounced “tate”). The dojo sign just says 体技心 meaning body-technique-spirit. The books Sora uses as references say that Muslim women cover their entire bodies (I’m serious). Yeah, not even I know why it took so long to do this episode.

Febris is the Roman goddess of fever, both causing it and protecting from it. And I hope you remember Sakura’s second episode and the Mastery of Communication, because similar things are brought up.
