“Thank you for always lighting up my path”
Fifty-one weeks later, we reach the end of our second season of Aikatsu, still going strong. I’ve said it before, but I was not expecting this to go on so long, and we’ve got at least another year and a movie ahead of us. Our two year anniversary isn’t for another two weeks, but let’s treat this as our 8th season anniversary at least. Beginning next week we finally get a clean slate for our namesake show, and stand on a new start line. Here’s to the future.
Oh yeah, and there were several lines this episode devoted to saying lines from the insert song. I hope you haven’t forgotten about that.

Did I mention how “ao haru” means “blue spring”?
And that ends our summer show about spring on the first day of fall. Winter can go play by itself.

also all anime sucks
Akatsukin (Translation, TS (1-4), QC):
I just wanted a simple romance. I didn’t ask for all this dead mother drama. I don’t want to think about real life, I want to escape it. Why did you do this to me? You can take your blue spring and your ride and your storm and your desperation and fake friends and false doors and implied rape and dropping out and shove it.
Etoce (Editing, TLC, Songs):
Why do I feel like I was asleep for this whole series? At least the songs were fun to do.

I never asked for this
Penultimate and all that. It has certainly been a blue spring ride.

Ichigo looks extremely comfy
Now this is a climax. Real (spoiler) image and talk after the break.

Why didn’t you protect this smile, smile?
So the reason this was late is—HOLY CRAP ONLY TWO EPISODES LEFT?! GODDAMN WHY ARE YOU READING THIS? GET TO WATCHING!
Episode 98: Torrent | Magnet
Hell yeah, motherfucker
Tired. Broken subbing finger. Existential crisis.
Oh yeah, and that Doraemon reference was specifically “Why are you treating me like Nobita-kun?”
Episode 09: Torrent | Magnet
(Links will be updated when the moons align)
Spoilers: New song
Hey guys… I think Akari’s going to be the main character of the next season. Don’t tell anyone else, though. Also looks like we found another character who can’t do her times tables. At least she doesn’t make a joke about it. Oh yes, and this episode uses my most favorite trope ever, the everlasting stars. I hope you enjoy this plotline that took 47 episodes to resolve.
Episode 97: Torrent | Magnet (sorry for being late)

Funny story—looks like CR actually got an unfinished version of the episode. You can see basically the only important difference here (yes, they removed that sign). How do I know ours is right? Because Kou isn’t a total derp. Or it just could’ve been furzee being a good encoder and fixing Production I.G.s errors . And if you’re curious, Kou happens to be a Terry Bradshaw fan.
