Aikatsu on Parade! – 006

The eternal radiance of S4 outshines the young idol

Man, this episode has almost more lessons than I can count on one hand, and that’s not a bad thing. There’s responsibility, crimes and punishment, sins and forgiveness, everything you can imagine. And while I want to linger on it a bit longer… next week is the week. The big one. The one everyone’s been waiting for. I might even have to go down and watch it live on TV.

Aikatsu on Parade! – 005

This year’s both a trick and a treat!

Whoa, a Japanese anime that actually airs a Halloween special despite it being after the day itself, and still makes it feel like the holiday? Believe it! Much like I felt strongly for my memories of Hinaki and Juri last week, this week surprisingly does a wonderful job with Sumire in her part of the episode. And the way Raki is being written into these adventures places her squarely in a nice position of up and coming idol, without making her too strong or too good. But with each passing episode, the mysteries surrounding Onee-chan’s experiment only deepen… What is her true objective?

Aikatsu on Parade! – 004

Oh no! Maika and Ema are cheating on Sakuya and Kaguya with their own clones!

Well, I can’t say I’m quite back 100%, but I’m here enough for this. Personally there was one other song I was really hoping to hear more, but I’m sure it’ll come just a little bit later. After all, I just need to follow the moon’s guidance to wait and do what I must, and good things will come.

Aikatsu on Parade! – 002 (Plus 01 4K version)

Wake up, it’s time for Aikatsu!

Idols from another school try to secretly invade? Now where have I heard that storyline before… See what happens this week when two stars come together to become one!

Also, our wonderful encoder tested what the 4K broadcast was like and redid episode 1. The native resolution is 810p, which means that it is the best size it can possibly be. We likely won’t be continuing this going forward, but either way, you can now enjoy the opening of the story in the highest possible quality (outside BDs, probably).

Aikatsu on Parade! – 001

This show is a lucky miracle!

Ai! Katsu! Aikatsu! Watch it right now! It’s amazing! It’ll make you glad you were born!

Raki-chan herself has one interesting catch-phrasing I could explain, which is がんばっちゃお! (“ganbacchao!”). It’s really the ending of this which she uses frequently, which is why she appears to randomly say “ciao” at one point, and probably more in the future. Just accept it and enjoy the little bundle of hope and inspiration.

P.S. Aikatsu on Parade is a sequel to Aikatsu, Stars, and Friends. For the full experience, watching all the the previous series in their entirety is a requirement.
