This may be one of the heaviest episodes of Aikatsu, and not just because of the snow. What could’ve caused such self-denial for so long? We’re racing towards the conclusion, but we’re not there yet. Also, even though you may think that Solvette is on the planet Tundrastar from 0048, I’m now somewhat confident that it’s in alternate Switzerland. The geography is one thing, but Neve, Schnee, and Neige all mean “snow” in French, German, and Italian, the three official languages of Switzerland (thanks to Etoce for his encyclopedic knowledge of languages). Good on you if you figured that out earlier. Now then, try not to freeze by keeping your heart warm with more Aikatsu.
Switzerland has four official languages—there is also Romansh.
I also looked that up, but the second line of Wiki says “All but Romansh maintain equal status as official languages at the national level within the Federal Administration of the Swiss Confederation”.
If you ask me, Solvette seems less like alternate Switzerland and more like an micro state by the likes of Liechtenstein and Luxembourg, given its relatively small size.
If it’s a micro state in the middle of Switzerland, that would put it relatively close to Monaco. I wonder if Alicia is acquainted with Elza.
I agree, Solvette feels a lot more like “generic Liechtenstein” than anything else.
Haha, I’m Swiss and I didn’t even think about Solvette being an alternate Switzerland (even though I knew the three girls name meaning and origin).
I’m not so good at this guessing game.
I feel so repetitive saying how much I love this arc, but… here we are. I’m also really pleased at how much Charles is playing a role here because I may or may not have a bit of a sibling weakness. Good stuff.
He is so cute, and he is also such a good little brother looking out for his big sister’s happiness.
I feel the need to comment every single time just to say that this arc is absolutely incredible, even if I repeat myself like a broken record, so here we go. Evol ustakia.
Alicia’s motivation reminds me of Sonic Adventure 2, kinda. But with a lot less memes and a lot more AIkatsu.
And to be honest, if I were Alicia, i would consider firing the captain guy and his entire squad for treason.
Alicia is honestly so blessed to have Hibiki as her friend and I wonder if she’s aware of that. Hibiki doing all she can to help Alicia, promising her to change the world for her, it makes me really envy Alicia, haha
This episode gave me mad AKB0048 vibes, but I’m glad Alicia decdied to clear up the matter. It’s just so amazing to see how much Solvette loves her, that they are willing to do everything they can to make her feel better. The world needs more of this kindness!
Is Alicia finally returning to Aikatsu in the next episode? Please, please, please! I’m so excited for the outcome, I want I Believe to be a thing again and most importantly – I, too, want to see Alicia smile. Make it happen!
I didnt expect this kind of themes on Aikatsu. Was a surprise for me. Now waiting for more
