We’re almost done, okay? Chill out BN Pics. Personally, I’d like to have a premonition of spring to [to what?]. Maybe they can perform for me sometime.

{I see what you did there. And by the way, it worked. MahiRora brought spring to my city this week.}

[Is this you then?]

Who will be your Valentine?

Who will be your Valentine?

Congratulations Nyaa comments, your favorite new torrent response has been included in this episode, and for the most appropriate idol too. It couldn’t have been more perfect. Also, recall that Soleil received 10 truckloads of chocolate back in the day that were used to make that chocolate tower. Maybe use your imagination to figure out what might happen this time.

Mikki and Saaya are here to save Aikatsu and worship Yuzu-sama, and they're all out of Aikatsu

There’s a Walt Whitman “quote” in this episode, and yet it only exists in Japanese. The Walt Whitman Society of Japan doesn’t know what the original is, and both of us read through the poem anthology “Leaves of Grass” and could not find it. Lily once again proves that the Japanese just make crap up and pretend like it’s real, since nobody who knows English can tell the difference. On the other hand, the Helen Keller quote is spot-on, so it evens out to zero. Also, I feel you, Yume-chan. I feel exactly the same way.

PS: We have the movies and will work on them. No estimated time of release.

Have I actually never posted Harururukaruka before?

I’m not sure if there were more signs to typeset in this episode or silly faces that everyone makes, but there are more than enough of both. Notes: The “extra oomph” thing they talk about is actually +α, wasei eigo meaning to add a bit extra. In Japan there’s a belief that dreaming about three certain things for your first dream of the New Year brings you good luck, which is brought up too. And finally, “iruka” means dolphin. That’ll come up.

Yet another drama episode today. So Lily has a quote from a certain British detective, but I could not find an exact replica of what she says. If you figure out whether it’s real or she’s just making stuff up, let me know. And then Yuzu later makes a joke about trees and herself. Just substitute her name with “monkeys” and you’ll have the original.

Did I mention season 2 was confirmed? It was.

Look forward to another year of Aikatsu!

A Happy New Year to everyone, and we’re finally back from the much-needed break. As expected of a very Japanese holiday, there were a couple notes to be had. The Taiga Drama that Tsubasa was cast for is a little bit too much to explain here, but can be easily found on Wikipedia. Then there’s the usual stuff you should already be familiar with like the ema (prayer plaques) which are hung up at shrines, and omikuji (fortunes), which are actually pretty in-depth. We’ve also got a confirmed second season of Stars, so we’re not stopping any time soon.

Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

Everyone knows that the Christmas episodes of Aikatsu are legendary, and Stars has carried on the tradition. I was losing it because of how incredible this episode was, with both old and new things happening, unexpected twists, and plot development. Snuggle up and enjoy. Also, no new episode next week due to the New Year, just like what happened during the very first season.

In case you were wondering, “over the rainbow” is a different phrase in Japanese than this episode’s title. It also wouldn’t really fit here anyway. Continuing from last episode, how will Yume handle her strange power alone? Let’s find out today and get all our worries solved before the traditional Christmas episode.
