Kirara was channeling Nina this episode for some reason, but more importantly there’s some really good setup and continuing storyline going on in the background. The Star Wings are giving a nice direction to the plot and tying together everything the girls do.
Nyaa is dead, so I decided to reupload everything even though they should still work due to DHT and stuff. I also took this opportunity to make an official batch with patches.
(Batch updated 5/5)
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.
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.
On the philosophy of being an anime fan. Also translation theory.
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.
