Happy New Year! We have now entered a new decade of Aikatsu! As I mentioned, this took a while because I was away the whole week at Comiket, meeting a lot of doujin artists as well as an actual animator for the anime. While this wasn’t quite a New Year’s episode, it was certainly a great one, even breaking some new ground for Aikatsu and having a focused, emotional plotline. Next week’s episode (the one that would air tomorrow) is on break, so the next one airs the 11th. As it is, I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful holiday, and happy year of the rat!
P.S. I learned something very interesting when I went to the Aikatsu Museum. The color designer for the series gave several interviews that were posted up, but the most interesting one was about Raki’s design. If you look closely at her eyes, you can actually see that they contain all the colors of the previous protagonists in some way: Ichigo, Akari, Yume, Aine, and Mio. Pretty cool, huh?
Happy New Aikatsu-Year!!!
Raki the IP pirate, it’s like she didn’t learn anything with her Constellation Dress.
She’s still learning, and each of her first 3 Premium Rares is supposed to reflect an existing S2 power up (Constellation, Star Wings, Jeweling). I think it’s quite cute.
I’m more surprised she hasn’t ripped more people off.
