I’ve got so much to say, it’s almost better to say nothing at all. My senses took in everything to me, in the rawest, purest way straight from a TV screen in Japan, and I gave it back my hot tears in return.
Yesterday I had a great time at Aikatsu Carnival 8, a doujin event in Kyoto, meeting other fans, buying books, and spreading the overseas love of Aikatsu to the people here. I may have spent too much money, but the memories I got in return have a hundredfold the value. I want to see everyone again next year if I can.
Thanks as usual for the work on the episode.
I was hoping for some of the more powerful songs as opposed to the ones we got in this episode. Maybe we’ll get something stronger next week with a possible unit song.
Ran stop bullying Aoi hahahaha loved it and of course seeing the one true Idol Ichigo again was the best can’t wait to see more of them next week. god dammit this should of been a 1 hour episode grrr hurry up next week
This episode was the only episode of anime that I had bothered to keep up with since I wanted to (try to) get enough sleep for AnimeNYC over the weekend. Just hearing Ichigo, Aoi, and Ran and seeing them on my monitor again after all these years (although only about a year and a half since the Stars! crossover episodes) filled me with joy and definitely kept me going throughout the weekend. Even bought a visual book for the anime and sang Airdoru Katsudou at karaoke with friends.
Oh yeah and CALENDAR GIRL ENDING HYYYYYYYYYYYPE!!!! I was so fucking happy I cried over it. T_T
Nice to see my favorite Aikatsu idol in Ran is still as sharp and beautiful as ever. And wow, I don’t remember Aoi being that hyperactive… haha
Nonetheless, it was hype to see all three perform on stage once again, and for the first time in a long time (if we exclude that most recent crossover). Good stuff!
