There are some real treats this week, and I’m not just talking about a great and touching episode, or even about the extra sugar content.
We never forgot about you, Nana! We were just waiting so that we could put you with your favorite Aikatsu Navi, Coco’s episode. But now, sadly, it is time for the batch of every episode, 0-10 including two extras. The last release with subs was 7, so you can start there if you were already caught up. We also had to v2 episode 6 for a small error, but no patch. We know you’ve been Aikatsuing hard this entire time, even if we couldn’t see you, and you will always be an inspiration to us. Be well, Aikatsu Navi Nanairo Nana! Good luck, and we love you!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Gosh, what a totally novel and strange thing for boys to confess for the holiday instead of the girls doing it. Maybe if Mio had asked me back in high school, I could’ve told her earlier… although she would’ve been a toddler at the time. Maybe these things just go in cycles.
Mezashite presents: Okada Mari’s directorial debut, a movie infused with the very essence of her writing and worldview, Let’s decorate the morning of goodbyes with the promised flowers. If you enjoy this movie, please consider buying it (and her autobiography too, while you’re at it). In the coming days, I will be uploading a series of essays on my thoughts and analysis of the movie. This release contains two audio tracks, the default 2.0 stereo and secondary 5.1 surround. If you have an AB account, consider helping me get some ratio!

A miracle visited me in real life when I watched this episode for the first time.
P.S. Thanks for being so kind, everyone. I was able to watch this episode with the maximum amount of enjoyment. If you joined me in my patience, you’ll surely experience the same amount of life-affirming joy that I had.
The way that the small developments we’re given regarding Mirai and Karen this episode shed so much light upon everything that’s happened in the past is just mindblowing. And nothing beats sleepovers. I can only wish that they share some of their love with us over in our world as well. At the very least, I’ll be trying to spread my own like them.
