Dreaming of Aikatsu
What’s this? An appreciation day for Aikatsu fans everywhere? That’s right, we’re back to sub the movie! This aired in theaters earlier this year, and here we present just the Aikatsu Planet portion. When Aikatsu Starway to the Future becomes available, we’ll be back once again. In some ways it was hard brushing off the rust (and getting all of my archaic and arcane fansubbing programs working again on a new beef pc, I still don’t have them 100% up and running yet), but it’s like riding a bike or climbing a mountain— once you learn, you never forget. I hope you’ll enjoy this addition to the Aikatsu canon, and we’ll see you again soon.
And of course, releasing today was definitely intentional. Yesterday was the 10 year anniversary of Aikatsu airing, and tomorrow is Mezashite’s birthday too.

Do you have a dream hidden within your heart?
And with this, we have officially reached the end of this iteration of Aikatsu Planet. Aikatsu was a bit different this time, huh? But I found that subbing it was pretty much the same experience as always. I don’t have much to say this time since the last couple episodes already led up to the ending and I got out most of my thoughts. Definitely worth watching this one though, as it gives a lot of cool looks behind the filming.
As announced in the episode, this autumn there will be a new web program with the cast, but from what it says it’ll be more of an information and chatting thing, not an actual story. We’ll see how it is and decide what to do from there, but I’m expecting it to be similar to what went up on Youtube before Planet started.
As always, thank you for joining us on this journey. Always keep the spirit of Aikatsu in your heart, and may we meet again some day, somewhere. Everyone together! Mirror-in!

A trip down memory lane with a few new things. All the actual content is new, but most of the performances are old (with one exception!). I would recommend watching this as a nice close to the series. Next week is the real final episode, going behind the scenes of filming.

To the future
While not technically the last episode, with this the main plot is over. That was a bit of a different ride than usual, but it closed out with some strong Aikatsu themes. The preview looks like there’ll be a fair amount of new content in the last special episodes, so I’ll see you there.

Hana means flower, by the way
The finals of the Planet Princess Grand Prix. As always, my own thoughts are here.

The Dressia’s summons?
As you know from the preview, we blow past the entire semifinals this week, but perhaps something else begins to change? I was so immersed in the episode I had no idea what was coming, and I got totally surprised.
And some news, which you may already know. At the moment, Aikatsu Planet’s current timeslot will be ending in the last week of June. We don’t know yet what will come next, but I’d appreciate if you could be patient and refrain from speculation here. Thank you.

I’m not sure if I’ve ever posted about how much I like this secret room setting
What is the significance of an earned win that you can be proud of from your heart?

The direction this episode was superb. There was a small detail I missed the first time which made the conclusion all the more impactful; I wonder if other people noticed and I’m just the unperceptive one.

Sorry Shiori, I couldn’t resist Ann’s heart pupils
Man, wish I had a Sala of my own to help me dress up. Then again, it’s not like I’d have anywhere to go. This was a nice Shiori episode, with one little part that made me think of Clannad.

A very questioning episode
And it’s asked at least 16 times by my count. With this, all eight main idols have gathered. Sorry it’s a bit later than usual, but please enjoy.
