Hi Saku :) Sorry for that I didn't find anything really wrong until Miya and you just noticed.
Although I shouldn't say this cause I interrupt impolitely earlier, I always think you're one of the more active and friendly member here, so I was abit surprised that your reply didn't seem like... well... you really welcome others to join, sorry if that's a wrong impression.
I would ask you to continue that thread only when it meets the end of discussion, so just feel free to reply me here, alright?
Heya Dora (if you don't mind if I call you this for short),
Thanks for thinking that. And that's right that I always welcome others to join, but it's pleasant for me if anyone asks me for permission for joining the discussion.
And you've asked a polite question in your last sentence, because I like to hear this sound in a polite manner. English isn't my native language. I try to make the things as clear as possible. Deafness is one of reasons for language deficiency.
I'll reopen the thread later today and thanks for your polite question! :-)
Umm Saku I saw your reply on your thread I'm not stalking promise, but there was no reason to close the thread. For one you could have messaged dorayaki separately on his wall, explaining the issue. Also even though Dorayaki interrupted without asking permission you could have included them in the conversation anyway. There were more friendly ways of you handling that situation, I'm saying this to be kind. You yourself came off quite rude repling to dorayaki. It was rude to barge into the thread, but you don't need to be rude in return.
Well as for now, I won't hope too much again and kinda don't care about the story anymore, too much plot twist that you can't predict. Now I just want to see S2 end soon no matter who'll win or despair at the end xD
Finally my first sexy PR card come after 6 month I played this game and I got Ichigo pre-dressed up (the stylish thief one), maybe for the free PR I'll choose sexy card again even though still confuse which one I should choose -_-
So amongst those 2017's permanent sexy PR, which one is good enough?
@Both: From the leaked image, I can see some details which fits Koharu due her hair. If it has been Hime, then her hair would be long and her hair bun. If it has been Koharu, then her hair would be short.
@Bear: Regarding Lightning, I actually have thought that since yesterday or two days ago. What do you think, Hiel?
Yeah we are free to have our opinion even though our opinion maybe will different with reality.
Since now all SPR revealed along with Moon Dress, here is my opinion, first about Sun Dress, to be honest none of all Sun Dress really fit with Sun image from its color, all Sun Dress basically just want to fit brands and idols image not Sun image, so it's hard to tell if those coords are Sun Dress.
Now about Moon Dress, first its color maybe fit with Moon image, but to be honest I'm disappointed with its design, the design basically just recolor of Sun Dress with Crown replaced by Tiara, so there's nothing special about it.
Thanks for the congratulations, Hiel! ^.^ It's quite nice to learn how to sew my first dress!! And my first dress is almost finished!! :-D
Hiel, I actually agree with you regarding the Sun Dresses and Moon Dress. As for the Moon Dress, it's been already expected as I literally have predicted months ago. Since they are the polar opposites of each other after all...!! If I have to say which Sun Dress fit the sun image... As I said in the comment of the Eternal Gothic Coord and that's the Eternal Smile Coord due its color combination which fits the sun image perfectly, while the Eternal Gothic Coord has the true moon image, because it immediately makes me think of dancing under the icy moon.
As for the Moon Dress, I also actually agree with you that there's nothing special about it. Just because the crown is replaced with the tiara... The dress is basically the color variation of the Sun Dresses. I also say that the color combination DOESN'T fit the moon image... Wha a grave disappointment!!
@Saku: Well imo, there's no Sun Dress that fit with Sun image, if you said that Eternal Smile Coord fit with Sun image, I don't think so, because its coord has blue and green in it, even though yellow and orange fit with Sun image, but not completely fit with Sun image. I want Sun Dress really looks like Sun for its color combination.
Yeah, I'm also not surprised at all, because when I see Hime held its cards and the wings looks like Sun Wings but she gazed Moon, I already thought it'll become Moon Dress and I already expected that its design also will same as Sun Dress as well. I really like when they handled Gemini coord and Summer Night coord from original series, even though both of them has same concept, but its coord has different design each other and each coord has each uniqueness. This can't be seen from Sun Dresses and Moon Dress, there's nothing uniqueness from all of them besides the color combination which make a BiG disappointment.
@Lightning (Hope you don't mind I call you that); Welcome to the party :D
And regarding the sun/moon dresses, I have so many opinions on them. I personally don’t like that we have so many sun dresses but they’re all starting to grow on me somehow. I think mu favorite is definetly Lilie’s since it’s just really pretty! And as for the moon dress, I wish it was a darker color so I can see the details better and Hime having the moon dress is a pretty nice surprise.
@Hiel: I get it what you want to see the real Sun Dress. As for Hime, I had expected as why she looks up at the moon. That's because of her Moon Dress. But I'm more curious how she will perform with her Moon Dress. :-)
@Lightning: I agree with you on the clearer details if the Moon Dress should've been darker colored or switched the colors. My favorite Sun Dress is also definitely the Eternal Gothic Coord. I'm also a cool-type idol fanatic. X-D
@Bear: Really?! On the 24th?! I'm curious... But I really want to have a Tsubasa or Lily card... And what about your regarding the Moon Dress? I don't know if you already stated your opinion on the Moon Dress. Or I might have missed your opinion.
I haven't I think, I kind of expected it to be similar to sun (I just feel like Bandai just wants to save money at this point...), but I'm immensely happy that Hime gets it (although I know some wanted Koharu to have it, or Ako to at least have a PR/SPR...)
I think the color works out in its own way, like in some ways the full moon illuminates light green?
Honestly I'm surprised that BANDAI only keep AiStars for two years and start new project already, and with 10 episodes left for AiStars, I wonder which dream that will come true? Yume, Elza or Hime?
Beside that, the design for AiFure looks nice and I like it http://www.aikatsu.com/friends/teaser/ Aine looks like mixed of Ichigo and Yume and Mio looks like mixed of Aoi and Seira, the design for Maika, Ema, Karen and Mirai also look promising. Now we're waiting until February 8 when they release general public video for AiFure...
I’m excited for AiFure, the plot sounds meh so far but I’m sure I’ll be more excited when there’s more info. I already love the designs a lot and the dcd visuals also look great. This is definetly going to be interesting
From what I can understand from this info, you pick 1 song to play from the list and after you play it, you can make bromide depend the song you play, e.g. you play Forever Dream, then you can make bromide with Venus Ark student(Elza, Aria, Kirara and Rei). This is just what I can understand from this info, since I don't play its DCD, so maybe I'm wrong.
I'd like to move it to the other Wiki maybe around the 8th or soon, since the full announcement will be made I suppose, I feel like there isn't too much to talk about stars in my mind anymore as there used to be
Also, Photokatsu *might* close in June, losing out on Star Anis and Aikatsu Stars as well as Hinaki's Trade Shop PR having no end date unlike the others are warning signs...
Well I just make AiStar let it flow, considering AiStars will be end, probably Yume will win at the end even though maybe Hime will make her appearance with her Moon Dress in between or maybe after Final Tournament ended, but I just hope they don't force the story like original, so its ending still make sense.
Photokatsu might be close, but I hope they plan to make another game for Friends and I hope the members of STAR ANIS and AIKATSU STARS can continue their career even though its group already disbanned, maybe they can create new group like Waka, Fuuri and Risuko with Mia REGINA or they can do solo career, even though this depends on Lantis or their management.
Seems like Friends also has the Aikatsu Museum portion where they keep cards, songs and idols from Stars and OG, I feel like this will be a snowballing thing that will take some of Stars content, while it will keep what we currently have for OG and continue with the part-ly updates to start re-adding Stars content and add new OG content, since the Friends DCD will be on the same machines as Stars
Maybe that's to reach old fans who still want to see characters and cards from previous series while hopping they also can enjoy new series too. Also the big change from AiFure that make seiyuu do sing is to easier to sell its franchise like love live and iM@s franchise that sell well with this method. It feels like AiFure is first step to make new tradition in Aikatsu for next 5 years.
So, recently, a wiki user, Baovt3333, use your banner on his profile, right? I really don't know what happen exactly but it seem that Jo SHININGSTAR had done something. And I'm here to say sorry, for what Baovt3333 did.
I share his nation so I can understand what he say and I figure it out, the guy doesn't know English. He doesn't know what this wiki for, or may be even what the Aikatsu! franchise is about, and worst of all, he's just imagine himself around. From what I have collected from his profile, it seems that he imagine himself as a principal of an idol school and yes, imagine this wiki is his school. Whatever you say he won't understand.
Aikatsu fandom in my countries have a lot of people like that, or any anime fandom in my country. It's also become a phenomenon if you want to know. So those all long lines are just to say that I hope you acept my apology because the reason I mention up there.
It originally came from the eyecatch and it's 720 as the high definition. That's how I screenshotted and rendered Yuzu's star premium rare dress.
How it looks now is because of the transparancy. Not because of the quality. If you want to have a high quality of it, then you should wait for the episode to be released as the Blu-ray Disc next year.
I hope for your understanding and thanks! :-)
EDIT: I realized that I have worded wrong and it's my mistake. And one more thing: I'll render it, but please give me within one week time. I'll let you know once I finished rendering it. ;-)
Maybe, Aria's performance looks like an aurora and the new ED song it's about Forest Light, there's high possibility this song will be Aria's song, but now I wonder who will become singing voice for Aria and Rei?
Well since it's just collab episodes, so it can't be helped...
Hope they reveal singing voice for Aria and Rei soon.
Yeah, completely recycled, even the system still use old system since they still use old card form (which I thought they will use remake cards, aikatsu cards in AiStars cards form, but not)
It seems new CG for Yume's STARDOM was better than first version, and for next episode I think the insert song between Bon Bon Voyage or STARDOM, so please bear with it. I really can't wait for next episode...
@Saku: Actually I'm fine if they use remake cards even though the performance was recycled, and not like this, completely copy from episode 151 performance, even the backstage also same like episode 151. In other hands I'm happy with this episode other than previous episode, beside I can see Ichigo again and her usual activity, also there's a hint when Koharu talk with ran that she really want together with Yume, well this answer should wait until next week though, even though I can guess the answer by looking the next episode preview, Yume and Co. finish their exchange program and stay in Japan, so most likely Koharu also decided to stay in Japan too, because there won't be Rainbow Berry Parfait if Koharu missing.
@Saku: The word "hope" was better other than the word "despair". As for Rei's coord, it's looks good and the color combination looks nice too, also it's kinda different from another PR coords since this coord wears a long pants not skirt like another PR coords always wears, maybe this aspect make the coord unique. But to be honest, when I see this coord feels like an upgrade coord from her Venus Ark school dress, which I hope something more than that. What about yours?
@Hiel: Regarding the words you mentioned, true enough!!
It looks stylish and royal, especially the pants and the color combination. What you said, it may be true that it looks unique compared to the other premium rare coords that only has the skirt. I get where you are from with the upgrade of her Venus Coord.
Depend on story though, like in S2 original series, when off time also reveal Mizuki's constellation deess. Well it's count from each season, in original series, S1 off time in episode 24, but for S2 off time in episode 75, which means episode 25 of its season like S3, off time also happen in episode 25 of its season, in episode 126, but for last season there's no off time since its season become last season, also S4 only have 26 episode unlike other season, S1 50 episode, S2 51 episode, S3 51 episode. So usually off time happen in episode for 24 or 25, so probably in AiStars for episode 74 or 75 will become off time episode.
Well I admit all song from scrapbook 2 was good, but for me Aikatsu Melody is the best in that single, although I still like RED MOUNTAIN and Jewel Star Friendship.
Woah, the card that I won't ever get it again, the best card I get only SR so far, it seems I'm still have no luck to get PR, anyway since you play from the first time photokatsu released, how much PR do you have until now? I'm just curious...
And I feels like Aria's SPR release alongside with Rei's (S)PR make Rei's coord have nothing, I meant Rei's coord looks great, but compare with Aria's coord which so beautiful, make me just want to focus on Aria's coord than Rei's coord.
May I ask, is green gems worth if I trade it with SR or I should wait until I collect 15000 gems and trade it with PR? Because collect 15000 gems take a lot of time?
Need to wait to see Rei's wings first, without the wings it looks underwhelming at the moment (Just a PR)
(I actually left this text here without submitting it; Rei's SPR wings are basically crystals; makes the rest of her SPR look skinny)
Get SRs after PRs or if you really want it, they're really only there for your collection.
Even if you don't spend a lot of money on rolls in general, you can get gems (with a lot of time) by constantly playing and refilling during drop events, making tons of hearts during drop events + heart gem selling. I think most people think it costs a lot (with many rolls) versus knowing they can spend a lot of time instead
I'm quite happy after watch today's episode, and seeing Alice become Four Star student feels like dream come true, it seems my guess was true that Alice will transfer to Four Star. Other than that I'm happy they finally come back to Four Star along with Koharu who now become Four Star student again.
I see, so I still have a time to collect 15000 gems, since maybe this the best thing to get PR card, because still no luck from summons xD
Yeah, I'm happy to see Alice again, and I was right she will transfer to Four Star. Poor Kirara... Well no surprise for insert song, because if not Bon Bon Voyage, STARDOM will become insert song again, but please in the next episode no STARDOM again, as far as I like this song, but if too much repetitive performance in anime, it'll get bored too, and it seems next episode will become debut for RBP, maybe Yume's SPR will debut too, but I'm not sure until I see summary for episode 73 first in next Monday when they reveal next 4 episode summaries.
Gem PRs are also much stronger than drawn PRs; generally it would also be your endgame too (but that will take probably like two years from now maybe)
Also, speaking of Alice, where's Haruka Ruka? There was a special on Wednesday that included an overview of the original and Stars up until around now with the VAs, and we saw Haruka again, so I'm a bit longing...
Yeah, and then somebody rolls a few singles for fun and gets the PR that the other person wanted, and the other person who spent all those stars then buys into the max blue stars package to do 4 more 11 rolls and still fails to get their PR even with 5 other PRs that aren't the one they wanted (with roughly 50% chance to get that one instead of another)
Each time a set of PR and SR is available or a new promo gacha, using blue stars allows you to draw one 1-draw for 6 stars and one 11-draw for 160 stars (the "SALE" you see all the time in the gacha box)
Rarely, they have blue-star only sales which can give you a guaranteed PR for an 11 draw (250 blues) (only happened twice)
You lose all of your current blue stars if you transfer between OS (android <-> ios) (best to just use them all before you transfer if you can help it)
I see, I think you're play for free not pay to win xD
And after see summary for next 4 episode, it seems episode 72 won't become RBP debut, but it'll debut in episode 73. Also I'm curious with the summary said that Yume and Koharu had argument, I wonder what caused it?
You don't understand; it's play and pay for me... 😂
Although I pay to try to get who I want to get; for example, I don't spend on most months but I spend a lot to try to get characters like Mikuru and Hime PRs.
And yeah, things have been moving kind of fast; even like 71, where Yume and friends got off the boat quickly in only a matter of minutes with the episode length. It feels like the argument would build up over a while but I think 72 will cover it quickly.
Yeah I know that, because a lot of casher aim for that, they spend a lot of money just to try to get characters they want and for others game is like shortcut if you want to go on top rankings.
Yeah, only 24 minutes and cut 3 minutes with OP and ED, so most likely the story only 20 minutes for each episodes, it's no wonder everything move so fast. Even though I know it'll end up with happy ending, but I wonder if their tension more than what happen to Yume and Laura in movie or not...
@Hiel: You already added the cards to the brands' pages as well as adding the coord names the coord navigator. Hmph... For your question, I would go for the Diable Chu-mmy Coord. It looks so amazing despite my disliked type. X-D There's one coord that made me so bitter about it... >.< So, what about yours?
@Saku: Sorry for that again, my hand move itself xD Ah yeah, can you add card into Shiny Smile page for Rilakkuma, it seems I forgot to add it since now I'm already working on cardboxes. Same as yours, I chose Diable Chu-mmy Coord too, I really like the acc with bat earrings, it looks so cool even though a cute coord xD But I don't really like Tricky Pirate Coord, I don't think Halloween and Pirate are fit -_-
@Hiel: Sure, I'll go ahead to add them to it. The pirate fits the Halloween theme, because it may seem scary to the children if it's dressed with the hook hand, if you understand what I exactly mean. Yeah, the bat earrings are so cute with the pink ribbons. X-D Do you know which coord I'm talking about that I'm bitter about a certain thing?
@Hiel: Yes, I also renamed it due the French word which is right from the start. So, it's renamed as the Diable Char-my Coord. ;-) No, it's the Marvelous Witch Coord. Why the crown for the witch?! It really doesn't fit the witch image!! They should use a witch-like hat for this coord... The Ghost coords' pointy hat is the best example!
@Saku: I know, right? I want to help, but I'm not really familiar with original Aikatsu coord, since for original Aikatsu, I only watch anime and not follow the coord collections and only remember coord that appear in anime, so I don't really know where I start it -_-
It seems photokatsu really fast to release new coord, now they already release Lily SPR coord along with Koharu SR which good as well, I hope I can get it, even though for PR I still have doubt that I'll get it, at least from the previous S4 event I got Yume SR and Yozora SR, ofc Tsubasa SR I got it too since it was a reward, but still can't get Yuzu SR though, so even though I can't get new Lily PR, at least I can get Koharu SR...
As for really fast, I don't know if it's really fast since it's been around 5 months since we saw Lily SPR (her event for Dreaming Bird actually had a Season 2 R as a PR even though we already saw the SPR) and the S2 story was delayed until like a month ago
Yeah, even for now they use rare coord (Noble Viridian Coord) as PR, maybe they have no choice because lack of PR coord. For S2 story, I think they wait for 5th anniversary to release it, now they finally release Ako's story and it's already based on S2 story, can't wait for others though...
Well it's better than nothing for Ako, because Ako most likely this season won't get any PR since only 2 DCD part left (part 5 and part 6), part 5 maybe use to reveal Sun wings and part 6 maybe use to related aikatsu ranking or S4 selection.
Finally reveal RBP mascot, and like we already predict, RBP mascot is Koala, Yume's favorite animal, and FFD is Sheep. So what do you think about RBP and FFD mascots? http://p-bandai.jp/item/item-1000117965/
Even though for GV, PQ and RS mascot aren't animal, but rose and crown...
Aria is only 12? The idea is a long way off, but would be neat if she were the next main character (There is already art with just Aria and Yume together, like on one of the merch cups)? Yet there's not much room for growth since she already has an SPR.
Yeah, Aria still in first year, for next main character? I doubt it since she already talented, I prefer Alice to become next main character for better character development, growth from zero. I know there's already merch for Yume and Aria, but maybe there's some bond development between them in the second half of this season, maybe like Ichigo and Seira development, like they'll become partner duet or something...
Yeah, but I feel like there would be some sort of outrage if Alice gets a performance and Koharu doesn't... Also, Akari came back at ep76 for the original, so Aria at least has something "more planned" (not that they have to follow the timeline of the original)
I know that, but I have a feeling that Koharu will have performance soon, let's see in Thursday when they reveal the song, is Koharu have a part in the new song or not, maybe in new OP, if yes, maybe we can see Koharu perform. Well, Aria's case probably like Mikuru not Akari, so probably Aria plan to become competitor for Elza and Yume in Aikatsu Ranking.
Yeah, since they already wait for a long time. Also Koharu already playable in DCD for a long time, so like you said, BANDAI just throw the chance for Koharu to perform in anime even though they can do it.
Yume's feels standard with some more color than usual, Aria's goes back to roots of MLH with her own twist on plant motif, but Rei's feels much different, a departure from the SPR and looks really feminine
I think RBP now looks like cute-type of Dolly Devil and their design now more mature than BP have. I'm quite disappointed with MLH now, they already gone from their original concept and it's kinda letdown. And for RS feels like the new coord is combination between Gothich Victoria and LoLi GoThiC.
Besides that, I'm quite happy with episode 73, even though Yume's aura didn't change and just got bigger, but I'm still satisfied with that...
Well, MLH always use ribbons and hearts motifs in their design, but now they not use it anymore it's kinda not MLH again, so if they want a new direction for MLH, I think they should powered up MLH as well, because it's more like My Little Fairy other than My Little Heart.
I feel like "My Little Fairy" wouldn't be an upgrade, and then with MLH it wouldn't really go anywhere after that (+ too many brands?)... Maybe they could explain the changes later in a way that fits the story
Well they can easily change Berry Parfait to Rainbow Berry Parfait, with this absolutely Berry Parfait won't use anymore, so with the powered up brand it's not mean add brand, but replace the current brand because their change its concept, that what I mean. Maybe Aria will debut next month, so let's wait until that to know the story behind it.
Another thing is the Berry Parfait didn't have a mascot, and MLH does, as well as other things already precedented; it feels weird to change something already established, since Berry Parfait was only around for 4~ months (DCD-wise at least) and they may have had plans to change it early on
The problem with scheduling everything on Thursday, including the show, (well, for me at least) is that it all comes in the morning, I have a long day and I have to look over at everything, versus a few updates a week. It's a lot to handle in the morning...
I know what you feel, even though for me it come on Thursday evening, but still I need to look over at everything too, after all I need to check if there's info that need a new page in wiki, and create all of them need a lot of time (even though for creating coord page I work with Saku), also when the times come with the day when I charge to do episode gallery, it'll become double work -_-
@Hiel: And I want to add one more thing, I wanted Ako to inherit the Shiny Smile brand. Why? The mascot is a cat, so it fits her perfectly!! FuwaFuwa Mary is a sheep and Shiny Cat is typically a cat. Don't you think?
@Saku: I feel bad for Ako till now she doesn't have any premium rare dress. That's possible Ako will inherit Shiny Smile in next season, since Yuzu will graduate, but I need to watch today's episode first, it seems Kirara and Ako talk about FFD. And I'm quite surprised they use coord that not release yet for Ako, I meant the promotion for that coord not release yet, even I know it's share same design with Melty Pink Bell Coord.
Yeah I know, renaissance is a cultural that happened from 14th to the 17th century, but I don't really know renaissance and barefoot in the meaning, anyway the japanese title is Hadashi no Renaissance, and hadashi translated as barefoot, so literally the title in english is Barefoot Renaissance, maybe this song want to show us a pure of renaissance like a barefoot which we don't wear anything.
We have 74 and 75 as both off-time episodes? Since S2 started at 51, an extra 25 would make 76 the important episode, and also the new ed/op. I've heard some jokes like part 5 will only have one new song, since it feels like the number keeps decreasing
Nope, only episode 75 as off-time episode, unlike S1, off-time happen in episode 24, in S2, off-time happen in episode 25. and yeah episode 76 will become debut for new OP and ED, but I wonder for new OP since in DCD part 4 they not introduce MUSIC of DREAM!!! yet. Most likely in part 5 they will reveal Sun wings and hope they'll release FFD PR coord for Ako, since now Ako already become FFD muse too. But I doubt in part 5 they'll release just one new song, since part 5 will come with christmas and new year, so I hope this time they come with new christmas song instead of use We wish you a merry Christmas again...
Well I can understand for forever dream was introduced early since Elza need to perform early too, but actually the brand, coord and song was introduced in same time, in DCD part 2. Usually they always introduce new OPED in DCD first before it get debut in anime, so it's become unsual they not introduce new OP in DCD yet and introduce it in next part even though they already played it at aikatsu fes...
I think, if you compare it to the other OPs/EDs, it just feels a lot different, even though it's a cute-type song. I'm bad at describing music here but like since the original Aikatsu all the way up until now there's always this kind of "modern" type upbeat (Bon Bon Voyage, Kira Power, Episode Solo) and then there's EDs that are more relaxed like "Precious, So Beautiful Story?" Also the cute-type "upbeat" like "Original Star, Calandar Girl." I'm not saying it's not something used for an ED, but I'm just curious what it'll look like in a week and a half since I can't fit it in one of the three usual groups, I know other anime have this type of beat/style for their OP/ED that the Pirouette has but I haven't watched those.
Well since Pirouette only heard from medley PV, so I still can't describe this song too much, maybe we should wait until the short version got released next week, but it's interesting to have something new for ED.
Yeah, I feel like just the ending of songs themselves set a tone for what they're like. Some people think that this is the last season for Stars, so I would have expected something with a "larger impact/emotion?"
Well I also expected Piroutte become slow song, but sadly the song a bit upbeat and fast tempo too, also this song like for ballet song and the dance looks like ballet too. I don't think Stars will be end just 2 season, I believe they plan for season 3 as well.
Yeah I know that, that's why when I create the episode page I still put STARDOM and Bon Bon Voyage as OPED, even though the OPED should be change in episode 76. Now I wonder episode 76 will become episode Aria introduce as new MLH muse, will she perform with her SPR or just PR, but I believe Aria will perform in episode 76.
It would make more sense that she performs in an R (MLH didn't get any PRs besides the Swan Lake recolor) and then get her SPR later, but if budget is low... we'll probably see the same performance with the SPR at least three times
Yeah I also think Aria will perform with Fairy Garden Coord first, and the in later episode she will perform with Floral Fantasia Coord like Laura when she become Spice Chord muse, she perform with rare coord first. At the moment we already see SPR perform twice for FFD and GV, plus don't forget with PQ that already perform 4 times xD
BTW, I can't wait to see how normal coord for part 4, even though I believe the pieces will be used from original again xD
Yeah it was mention that episode 75 will become the last for STARDOM and Bon Bon Voyage as OPED, but now since MUSIC of DREAM doesn't release in current DCD, I wonder who'll become the singer for this song, are still Sena, Rie, Kana and Miki (Yume, Laura, Mahiru and Ako), or there'll be another character, like Koharu xD
It seems part 4's Ns also looked fine, but again they re-used old pieces, but since the design still look nice, so I'm fine with that.
Oh yeah, are you already listen to new photokatsu song, Nijiiro Encore? How do you think about this song?
Weird question, but what do you think are the chances that Message of Rainbow is the new OP since you talked about Music of Dream being part 5? Like, even at a low chance, since we originally had 1, 2, Sing for You for a few episodes beforehand
Well that's actually my question too, usually every new OPED always introduce at current DCD before its debut in anime, like when they introduce 1, 2, Singf for You and STAR JET, they introduce it in different part, 1, 2, Sing for You was introduced at part 3 and STAR JET was introduced at part 4, also a week after part 4 released, STAR JET used as new OP, so there's a chance MUSIC of DREAM become third OP, but let's see this thursday when episode 76 aired.
Woah another surprise from lantis, MoaR which included in the new OPED single sung by Sena and Nanase not Sena solo, finally they give Koharu a song even though a duet song, hope Yume and Koharu perform MoaR soon in anime...
I know that, but in MLH hime still have a part, because she is the one who produce or create Aria's (S)PR coord, so Hime itself also part of the change of MLH, unlike Laura with Spice Chord and Mahiru with Romance Kiss, even if they add with their own touch like Laura did with Spice Chord, but she is have full control to make her own coord, and what Laura added to Spice Chord still suit with its brand concept, so I have no problem with that, but in MLH case, even if Hime said Aria will add her own touch, but it makes not MLH again, at least for me, because it's completely different with MLH brand concept from beginning, even though I've to admit Floral Fantasia Coord is beautiful, but that's not from "MLH"...
Yeah, I think when they said "core" being "dresses that make people smile," that was a bit broad; Berry Parfait and Shiny Smile might already fit that... Then if the "own touch" is what makes up the rest, it wouldn't just be a "touch" then
I know, right? The change for MLH a bit too broad unlike the change for Spice Chord with Laura or Romance Kiss with Mahiru (even though Mahiru doesn't seems change too much for RK), that's why I can understan why Berry Parfait change to Rainbow Berry Parfait, because RBP have more broad concept than BP, but still have BR's core in it, so I think MLH now is not MLH again, because they already gone too far away from their original concept and now MLH look as another brand for me...
Well I think it's not big problem if we have one more new brand, this is also happen with original series when Happy Rainbow, Spicy Ageha and Futuring girl doesn't have or just have a few new collection in Akari's generation since Otome, Ran and Aoi didn't really active (they still active, but we just can't see it since story focus on Akari's generation), so it's not problem if Aria have new brand since it'll be better for Aria's image than make MLH as her brand which not suit with her image as you can see in her SPR which doesn't looks like MLH...
Yeah, I don't like how they didn't go to far with those brands. I don't want MLH to be much less active, so the best scenario for me was if Hime was still active and Aria with her own brand (even though others are alright with putting MLH more away.) Photokatsu is making magic out of brands that the Anime/DCD didn't get a chance to...
Yeah, that ashamed they didn't go far with those brand, since I expect more Futuring Girl coord. Also I was expected Hime will active again when she return from her journey, but sadly BANDAI want another story and make all 25th gen S4 become inactive which they pass their brand to another idol, but at least I want idol who become next muse for MLH is like Spice Chord and Romance Kiss, Laura and Mahiru didn't really change the brands too much unlike Aria really make MLH looks so different. Even though like that, useless we complain it now since this already happened, so let's wait how story will go on for second half its season, is Aria will become the rival for Yume and Elza or Aria will become idol who make Yume grow more?
25th S4 feels like they got downgraded instead of growing from their journeys due to all the passing-down and nothing really else... I think the latter regarding your idea for Aria, since Yume would just have a lot of rivals if otherwise
I know, right? Now I don't understand what BANDAI planning on Aria, but for me, Aria a bit mary sue too, moreover she already got her SPR in her debut and also got twice performance in a row, also this is first time to have character such Aria which have extraordinary power...
Well I like Mikuru, although she is pop idol, but her personality a bit more calm than the other pop idols like Otome, Kaede, Kii and Hinaki, if compare to Aria (well we can't describe Aria too much with just 2 episodes though), Mikuru not too mary sue, she just like another idols, also Mikuru start her idol activity from zero with Mizuki invitation because her background is a gardener unlike Aria a bit mary sue and she already know idol activity from child. That's why I always prefer idols who start it from zero, because we can know their growth time by time, even though like that I still don't like Akari despite she also start from zero xD
If only not get (S)PR on debut or not get twice performance in a row, maybe I could take it better, even Elza doesn't get twice performance in a row, so Aria a bit too mary sue in my opinion, and compare to Mikuru, that's true she got her PR soon after her debut, but she doesn't get it in her debut and that's still normal like how Ichigo and Aoi got their first PR which also start from zero.
Also, given how there isn't really any particular performance she might duo/etc confirmed at the moment, we might never see anything but her SPR being worn until close to the end of Stars (with everybody else) if they handle it like the original?
Yeah, the chance for us to see duet performance for now only Elza and Kirara, Kirara and Ako, Yume and Laura, Yume and Ako, Yume and Koharu (hoper this duet can really happen), except that we only see solo performance. Most likely they'll keep to perform in their SPR till the end of its season if they perform again since there's no sign if they'll get another PR except the idols who will get Sun wings.
I don't think this series will focus on units, even though there's permanent unit, S4, but there's still less chance for S4 to get perform together, because most of the time they still focus on each member one by one not as a unit, Also I don't think if AiStars focus on units is good idea, since it'll become too similar with original series that every season also have focus on units, so I think this series better focus on each characters and for unit just focus on S4.
Well... This late on for the season, it'd be different than the other seasons not to have a unit.
I prefer units even if they don't come often, because there isn't too much performance content otherwise; although they can focus on individual characters, they haven't really mixed up performances. Tomorrow might just be Forever Dream again...
Having units surely is good, but I feel if AiStars have too much units, the story maybe will be like original and I don't want it, I want AiStars focus on something else, because in original most of 4 season was focus on units.
Well compare to STARDOM which already use 6 times as insert song and Forever Dream just 4 times use as insert song, I still can bear with that xD
Yeah, Forever Dream again but next episode has Yume and Koharu about to perform (?) ... Strange timing since it's the Halloween Episode, I hope it's in CG though.
As for units, we only really had three units perform with two different songs... I don't think a couple more performances would hurt, maybe even one (Yuzukosho has that Rilakkuma promo for DCD for example, but why not come back in the show?)
Seems like our waiting was over at episode 79 to see Koharu perform, I doubt they will perform Halloween Night Magic, since the stage is drama and we never see drama stage in CG performance at anime, I feel like MoaR will be used, since we already have Yume and Koharu version for that song that will release less than 2 weeks along with new OPED.
Well if just for a few performance and just a few units, I don't mind with that, but if ended up like original that have too much units, I prefer story like now. After all I want to see another group aura too, hope if Yume and Koharu perform next episode, they have group aura like when Yume duet with Laura... *cross fingers*
I still wish they had the duo performance in one of the earlier episodes starring Koharu and Yume, having it on this episode is very strange unless they tie it into the story very well.
And yeah just a few performances/units is fine, but having none just feels bland. There is a fair number of performances with multiple idols this season, it's just that they haven't been in a unit really (except for more episode solo)
Well maybe true strange to see CG performance in Halloween episode since the song type for halloween is drama, so always become background sound instead of performance, but seeing the preview Yume and Koharu most likely will perform, so for now let's see and wait a week again, what song and coord they'll use.
We still have S4 as unit, so as long as they give S4 especially 26th gen S4 to perform together it'll be good than nothing...
I know, right? So other than add another unit, why not to put more focus on S4, since there're a lot of thing we still don't know about S4.
If you mean episodes after episode 80 before part 5 start on December, I still have no idea, I hope in November they can tell us more about Sun wings, also since now who know about Sun wings only Elza and Rei, so I doubt that other idols will get it unless other idols also know the information about Sun wings as well.
Yeah, part 5 will come really soon and there needs to be that development (after you said episode 80 I felt we're way too close to the end), my curiosity about the rest of part 5 and part 6 can't be sated soon enough though.
And I'd want to add another unit just because they aren't doing anything with S4... At least I feel like they diverted their attention and are only interested in new things (for example, a new unit)
Yeah, we only have 20 episode left for this season and I can't wait for November too to see new coord for part 5, hope we can see Sun wings soon, even though I have feeling that Elza will get it...
Maybe in AiStars the idols focus to aim for S4 especially for four star students, and for venus ark student it seems they're all individualistic, so there's low chance for them to think to create an unit unless there's an event like S1 to hold competition with an unit as a requirement.
Hmm, at least for the S4 competition, I don't think it'll be long like in S1 since there doesn't seem to really any focus on it (Yuzu's replacement = ...?), so that gives a little extra time even. Also, right into November, it spoils who gets the Sun wings if they reveal it the way they have been with DCD... Wonder if they'll change it up somehow
And yeah, a competition could be made quickly for a unit should there need to be one (although I think there doesn't necessarily need to be one)
Yeah, but still the idols at four star still aim for S4 as their goal even though this season still don't know if there'll be held S4 Selection again or not, but let's see on January or February. Well it can't be helped, because they always introduce coords like that, so we always know a month before for the coord collections for next DCD and I don't think they'll change it.
But I don't think there'll be competition like that in the rest of season...
Anyway, other than AiStar, what anime that you follow lately?
Oh, I hardly to just follow one anime, each season I always ended with more than 10 anime that I watched, same like this season, since too much good anime, so I decide to try watch it, even though I drop that not interesting enough in the end. Beside that I also follow new precure series and new kamen rider series(it's not anime)...
Even though lately kamen rider series become weird, especially EX-Aid that I don't watch it because I don't like its design, but try to watch new series, kamen rider build, because the design seems interesting. In other hand lately precure become good, especially now they also have famous seiyuu, like in mahoutsukai precure have Rie Takahashi, Yui Horie and Saori Hayami in it, and now in KiraKira Precure have Inori Minase, also the story become good too, even though in the end precure always have happy ending...
I really don't follow anything about ex-aid, show either game... But kamen rider that I really like until now only Gain, this series really full of surprise, maybe because the script writer is Gen Urobuchi, the famous story writer on anime that always come with plot twist and always have dark story...
I like KiraKira's music as well, unlike previous precure that have less insert song, in KiraKira each character have their own insert song, and KiraKira now will reach the end, hope the next precure as good as KiraKira...
Yeah, with Ex-Aid I mostly know about the memes and stuff, but you didn't watch it? (also regarding game, is there really one aside from the plot? Since there's only standalone toys afaik that don't connect to anything)
Also, one thing that kind of makes me repeled a bit from Precure is how they change the cast every year even with the huge amount of love and effort they put into each character... I don't think I'm one to handle that, but I guess I don't feel the same with Kamen Rider since it isn't Anime and I haven't really watched it
Yeah my guess was right, I just have feeling they will use that coords, since the color match to Yume and Koharu, pink and purple.
Finally after we wait 78 episodes, we can see Koharu perform and she also got unit aura too. Koharu's performance really gorgeous, the wait is worth and I can't wait to hear full version MoaR Yume and Koharu version, since less than a week the single will be released, also want to hear full version MUSIC of DREAM too...
Yeah that would be cool if they make PR for Koharu, but the problem is Koharu preferred brand still Romance Kiss (it's impossible for Koharu to wear PR from RBP, since it's not her type), and I don't think if the current muse, Mahiru, let Koharu to have RK PR coord, but in other hand Ako already become double muse in FFD with Kirara, so the possibility for Ako to have her PR is high other than Koharu.
I hope they still introduce another PR, even though for Aikatsu Ranking the idols surely will still use their current SPR coords, but let's wait and see, but for now let's focus on part 5 first...
Yeah, I think PRs for Koharu and Ako are on order since there really isn't much else to add
Regarding RK and Koharu, I think they can certainly add a story element to allow for it, Hime gave Yume her Secret Diary PR from part 3, except this time it could be specially made for her, so I don't think there's anything disallowing for it if they can work with it (why wouldn't Mahiru let Koharu have a RK PR coord?)
We'll see this Thursday or maybe Today when they start to reveal coord for part 5...
Yeah that's possible too, since Mahiru also appointed Koharu as her admin, so maybe she can allow Koharu to have RK PR coord...
As expected now next event for photokatsu is collab between aikatsu x photokatsu, and I can't wait the new song, Good day, Good night, which the PV most likely will be released soon today since the event start tomorrow, hope this song is good, even though this song seems will be slow song...
Actually the song quite easy to play, because when I play legendary mode, I still can keep up, even though still miss more than 5 times xD
And I really want new Ichigo PR, but luck not with me, even though I got PR with just 25 stars again (after last event I also got new Sumire PR with just 25 stars draw), what I got now is Seira PR (the Musical Scorpion one) not new Ichigo PR that I want -_-
Also Sun dress silhouette already reveal, this coord really appear in part 5, can't wait for Thursday...
I don't know why BANDAI release this PV so early and not with the rest of PV from part 5? But maybe they want release this between part 4 and part 5, not exactly release for part 5.
Yeah I also like the transition from dark scene to day scene, that's really cool, similar to POPCORN DREAMING stage. Also I have feeling that this song will be user for Sun dress, even though I really hope for Sun dress have another song.
Yeah, and actually there'll be 2 Sun dress, even though I really hope Elza not get it, because I want to see how depressed she when she doesn't get what she want. I still don't know how they'll manage that since both of Sun dress have similar design (only different in color), so I doubt that coord created by idol, what I think right now is Sun dress actually an upgrade from the current SPR, so when the idol perform and granted by Aikatsu system, the Sun dress will born, I mean when perform the current SPR change to Sun dress, so Sun dress completely made by Aikatsu system, unlike the current SPR, Aikatsu system only create the wings.
I think there's a reason why Elza got Venus and Yume got Earth, we know Venus and Earth known as sisters planet, so maybe this is the reason why Elza and Yume got Sun dress.
Hm, not sure why you want to see Elza depressed due to not getting it, it seems super weird that Yume just learned about it while Elza was trying to work toward it the entire time and maybe feels like Yume snatches it away with minimal effort comapred to Elza?
Yeah, the sister planet thing, I think I had that idea way back as far as the part 3 reveals, but didn't know what they could be going with it as
Why I want to see Elza depressed? Because I want to break Elza's perfectness and Venus Ark thing, I want to see Elza realize that she can't always be in the top. I think it's not weird, maybe Yume just learned about Sun dress, but before that Yume already have a dream to become number one and brightest idol in the world, so Yume not just snatches it away from Elza, but Yume has a reason to do that and make her dream come true.
Yeah, it'll be interesting to see how BANDAI manage the story for that and why there're 2 Sun dress.
Anyway, what do you think about Rei's speech before her performance, to be honest it's a bit too extreme, because she just do that for Elza's sake not for fans or anything else...
I know that, but it's too waste for Rei if she just do everything for Elza's sake.
Well Aikatsu ranking not final yet, but it's obvious Venus Ark will dominate, since from Four Star only Yume, Laura and Mahiru who participate, but I think the ranking will be upside down when Sun dress appear.
Yeah, most likely she won't be top 5 again. But I still wonder how Aikatsu ranking will be end...
And seeing episode 84 summary, it seems there'll be unit event again and it says Kirara will do with Ako, I wonder if they perform together again, will they have unit aura or just like episode 74 with individual aura again...
Yeah, feels like episode 81-84 just like a filler, but I'm curious with episode 85, beside the title was taken from MoD lyrics and its episode air on the same date when WoS part 5 begin, so there's high possibility Sun dress will appear in that episode, even though it's a bit to early but based on what Elza said in episode 80, Sun dress will present itself to the idol who shines brightest on stage, so basically Sun dress can appear in any episode whenever Yume or Elza perform.
Seems way too fast, if 81 - 84 seem more like filler then I think they will use the time outside of the main focus of each's episode to work toward the Sun Wing development.
Also, since the ranking continues, if she gets it that early, it kind of reminds me of Pokemon with how you get the legendary pokemon of the box a good amount of time before the storry finishes; she has something really powerful with still a ways to go for the story itself
But nothing is impossible, and actually in episode 82 already said about Sun dress, maybe the development start from this episode.
I know it's early, but considering in December and January will cut with 2 episodes for Christmas and New Year episodes, so basically only have 5 episode for Sun dress to appear, I don't think there'll be development episode first if only have short episode like this.
Yeah, so some time is given to relax a bit later instead; also you can probably put 81 as a development episode also. 82 description mentions "Yume's goal lately ... Sun Dress" but I think it really starts from 81 because I don't think 80 established that goal just yet (just announced publicly) (also, 81's name). Then again, every episode skips to the future a bit, so 82 could have some sort of prologue.
Now I still keep getting curious about what's ahead with the Sun Wings so close...
Well the development also can start from episode 81 to 82, even though in 81 doesn't stated about Sun dress, the title of its episode said Looking for a great S, but S in english term or japanese term? Because Sun in japanese is Taiyou. So maybe the real development start form episode 82, even though that episode seems like focus on Aria again at the end (looking from summary).
Yeah, I also wonder what will happen after Sun dress appear since these not appear on last DCD part.
Well after hearing full version of new OPED single, it seems PotFL become my last favorite from this single, sure this song is relaxing, but MoaR and MoD was better. So my rank for this single MoaR > MoD > PotFL.
From the short clip of Pirouette, I liked it a lot, and then to the short version, it was probably my favorite song at the time (stuck in my head), but I think the full version ... I'm not actually as fond as I thought I'd be about it... Parts are radically different it feels like
MoD/MoaR are about what I'd expect, so I think my opinion isn't changed much on them
Waiting on my order for the OP and ED CD, my Star 4 book has been in transit for over a month when I usually get it in a week and a half so that's not very happy
Actually PotFL is a relaxing song, this song reminds me to So Beautiful Story which Sena and Ruka duet song too (even though in SBS Ruka voice Hime), good pair and good song, but compare to MoaR and MoD, this song feels like still lack something and I prefer MoaR and MoD than PotFL.
Now I wonder if AiStars will have Best Album or not, because in original series each season have Best Album, but now in AiStar S2 already reach its end, but still no info about Best Album yet.
Yeah, Hime's hairstyle so adorable, but Yume's side ponytail also looks so cute, so far I really like Yume's hairstyles and she already have 4 different hairstyles (with the next episode), the normal double ponytail, the koala hairstyle (in episode 67 which I really like it), same hairstyle as Kirara (in episode 72), and the side ponytail (in next episode), they're look so cute, especially the koala hairstyle.
And looking from the preview for next episode, seems like will become Aria and Yume duet since they practice dance together.
I think only Sun dress and the rest are normal coords (I count there'll be 11 normal coords, 4 cute, 3 cool, 2 sexy and 2 pop), but seeing cute rare coord start from number 4, it seems Sun dress will consist of dress, shoes and accessory, unlike others SPR consist of top, bottom, shoes and accessory.
Edited: After seeing info from magazine, it seems there'll be 6 Sun dress, 3 for VA and 3 for FS.
Some people feel like it might be unrecoverable for Stars if they went straight to 6 - 9 Sun SPRs, since it is assumed that they have higher stats and each cost a lot etc. Yeah, I hope it's revealed soon but the model without hair in that teaser was kind of met with a huge surprise if all of the girls will have the sun dress/wings ... Man, I really wonder how they will handle it since the assumption from everybody was always that there was only going to be one. Unless the anime will allow many to wear the sun dress but only one/two to have the wings
Yeah, it's still acceptable if Sun dress only have 2, but having 6 or more Sun dress make Sun dress not special anymore which is supposed make Sun dress is special dress, but with this kinda like unit dress than special dress. It's really beyond expectation honestly, but let's wait how BANDAI to handle this in anime.
Well without in team or not, they should explain about this, since in anime based on what Elza said, only one who'll get it, but in reality not.
Actually I don't know what they plan to Ako from the start, even when S4 selection last season, Ako not like the others when she doesn't get special dress up glitter, so far I think Ako's development not so good. But different for Koharu, she got good development, we remember she in S1 really clumsy and lack of confident, but see now, she also can argue with her best friend and she has confident to say what she want (still hoping to see another performance from Koharu).
Yeah this'll become another plot twist, so I hope they really explain about this.
Ako feels like to complete the formation of trio Yume, Laura and Mahiru, but actually she doesn't have big role or important character in AiStars, so I think why BANDAI made Ako become S4 is because they don't have any choice to put another character in there. We see now Ako development feels like stagnant and she she doesn't get anything.
Yeah, I'm also happy with Koharu's development and looking forward to her as well.
Yeah, episode 82 truly feels refreshing and we see more development from Yume and Aria (even though I don't really like Aria too much), but this episode made them realize what important that they have to do.
Maybe that's Yuzu's fault and not chose Haruka as an admin, but I think Haruka a bit too carefree, so she's not really fits to become admin that have important responsibilities.
I don't know about, maybe to make the focus still on Venus Ark and Four Star, so if Aria in Four Star, the focus in Venus Ark will be less since they only have 3 main idols (Elza, Kirara and Rei), but Four Star will have more idols if Aria join Four Star too, maybe this is just for balance...
But she also visited Venus Ark first, so maybe Venus Ark got her interest and she immediately accept Elza's offer, but actually before Elza asked Aria, Yume also ask Aria to visit Four Star too, but Elza took the chance by give the offer to Aria, so that's what happened...
Maybe that glasses just for disguise like other idols do when they stroll in public, so that's nothing important about that...
