I for one am all for lighthearted episodes
This might have been the funniest episode of Aikatsu Stars ever. Also, if you pay close attention, it seems that Yume corrected Rei’s speech from last week. Thinking about it logically, Rei messed up a line. Compare them and you’ll see what I mean.

Why do you Aikatsu?
Rei has made this episode one of the coolest so far. Her noble, valiant visage might make you rethink all of your presumptions about Aikatsu. Or something.

My own clone?!
Happy Halloween! Just a note—there’s this untranslatable pun in the middle where they turn 組 (gumi) into グミ (gumi), so that Song Class becomes Song Gummy and so on. Also, I guess Lily felt like naming the person she was quoting for the first time in the entire series?

Were you able to protect this smile?
An unexpectedly emotional episode for not just Elza, but anyone feeling lost. What is… “perfection”? Also, extremely well timed with the annual Orionid meteor shower.

She reminds me of Fuwari here. Or maybe Maria
You claim to be experts, Aikatsu, and yet you can’t even get a single scientific name of a flower correct? The Humilis Alba Coerulea Ocula should actually end in Oculata. How can I ever trust anything I learn from you again?
Also, this episode’s keikaku levels were off the charts.

Fairies: Actual size
There’s something really special about the first episode of a new half-season, not to mention something special about the ridiculous workload it entails to do. I suppose you could say this episode marked a new start line, and made sure the viewers knew it. If you want to see that for sure, I’d suggest comparing this episode to any from the very beginning of Stars, particularly the opening. Aria is a lovely girl, although it would be difficult to expect otherwise from her name. I hope you do enjoy this episode with a smile, just as I did (particularly the first few seconds of the new OP for me).

P.S. Today/tomorrow, October 8th, marks the actual 5th anniversary of Aikatsu. Thank you for these five years!
This is a high-level metaphor for Koharu having dominance over Mahiru
And here’s our yearly tradition, the off time at someone’s house to finish off the first half and lead into the new character of the second half. In tradition there is both comfort as well as flexibility to make something unique, and they’ve nailed it.

Me in two years
We wanted to release this episode now just so that we could say: Happy Birthday, Ako!

I wonder which is the father and which is the mother
Gonna be honest, I was kind of worried about the episode during the first half, but the second half and performance blew those clouds away. Impossible rainbow aside (the sun needs to be behind you to see a rainbow), I’m going to borrow the words of a fan on Kirakiratter and say you must absolutely watch the CG this episode. The depth of expression, the little touches put into the audience, and even the song itself reminding me of Melody of the Heart blew me away. What an absolute pleasure it was.

I also love forehead idols
What a treat this episode is for those with a good memory of Aikatsu Stars. I try to keep my writer obsession to myself, but for his third episode of Aikatsu at all, Nomura Yuuichi has shown that he’s done his research, and absolutely loves the show. There’s even the introduction of a certain new character, but most importantly, the Bridge to Stars: STARDOM, is reframed almost literally. What beautiful moments this episode brought. Do enjoy. Oh, and this was the 250th episode of Aikatsu overall.
