Man, not only was this a festival of locadols, it very seamlessly led into the upcoming arc. More than just a feelgood episode, it again utilized the past foundations of Aikatsu to nurture Raki as well, and set up her next steps. But mainly, it was just a ton of fun.
You may have heard, but they announced that there will be a “Big Announcement” on Sunday, March 8th, in two weeks. Nobody knows what it is. If somebody says they do, it would be to your benefit not to listen. Please don’t spread rumors here either. Thank you, and look forward to it.
*idols from Hokkaido* me: oh yeah, it’s time, they are finally back… *no Shirayuki-hime* … why do I feel betrayed?
Anyway, I like that instead of going the sensible route and send someone to pick each idol so they can all arrive together, they approached the issue in the most inefficient manner and sent Yuu to pick them up one by one, also telling her to make sure to return to base after each trip. Like the most tedious fetch quest ever.
… wait, remind me again, what’s the minimum age to get a driving permit in Japan?
Japanese citizens need to be 18 years of age in order to get a driving permit.
Yuu would be in her 3rd year of middle school at Starlight, so she would not have been permitted to drive, despite it looking like she does at one point. The part where she sticks her head out from the ‘drivers’ seat is from the left hand side; in Japan the actual driver’s seat is on the right.
RISAPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! ヽ(●ﾟ´Д｀ﾟ●)ﾉﾟ IF ONLY I DIDN’T DROP THIS SHOW AT EPISODE 5 CAUSE THEY DIDN’T SHOW KITAOJI SAKURA UP TO THAT POINT AND THEY’LL LIKELY NEVER MAKE FIGURINES FOR SAID CHARACTERS BECAUSE I’M UNEMPLOYED AND HAVE NO FRIENDS!!! OH WOE IS ME CAN THIS HIT 13 LIKES?!?!? ヽ(●ﾟ´Д｀ﾟ●)ﾉﾟ
(“No Jay, your willingness to be stupid is showing!!”)
Wah, gomen! (#WOMP)
Also, I already know the big announcement… It’s JUST AIKATSU! Like Just Dance… BUT JUST AIKATSU!!! They had to delay it last time they made a big announcement but this time they’ll release “Just Aikatsu” for the Nintendo Switch! And I will dance to all songs sung by Risappe, Kitaoji Sakura, Wakaba, Mio Minato, Miyabi, Shirayuri sisters, and Raki (´つ＾ω＾⊂) Not to be confused with Rocky and Bullwinkle… a crudely animated show aired in 1959 I’ll have you know (◍˘ω˘◍)…
…btw did they sing Love Like Caramelize yet? It’s one of my favorites…
