Thread went dead before I could post this. A Mia for the new year.
This is the image that made me watch RL while it was airing, thanks to the anon that posted it back then.
Poor Bell, she deserves to be loved.
can someone explain what the fuck the deal with these threads is? why do the threads always have weird as fuck ops? does it come with the territory of watching a show made for 8 year old girls?
WHy does this show always go out of it's way to make me feel bad for being lazy?
I miss Kaede. I wish she didn't
She would be so loving. She'd wake you up in the morning and scold you for sleeping in, but have a wonderful hot breakfast waiting, or if she had work it would be wrapped up with a cute little note and just a single heart drawn but scribbled out. If you went to bring her lunch when she was at a job she'd act cold the entire time and say not to interrupt her when she's busy, but as you turn away and start to walk dejectedly out, she would secretly wink at you and smile. Then when you get her a giant Ebipon for her birthday she wouldn't be able to contain her excitement and jump right into your arms- after giving Ebipon a nice big hug, of course.

Part of 2ch's top 50 anime of 2015.
Did we finally win?
>yurika-sama will never suck my blood
Why live? ;_;
Imagine her destroying space invaders in her badass ship like a boss every night, pretending she has to be on schedule and keep a diet.
In her normal life, she's an idol.
In her secret life, she is Ran. Galaxy Defender Ran.
Do you mean beating Precure? Not really, that's a tiny difference and well within the margin of error. And that's assuming you care what 2ch thinks anyway.
Also shit taste, because while PriPara has been better recently GoPri has been great all year.
It's because of all your hard work, senpai!
Are you Ebipon?
Finished watching Futagohimes. They were cute. Do I look for a (raw) torrent of Gyu?
I want to mess with Shion and make her hit me.
I want to send Shion fan-mail and compliment her on her acting and singing skills.
I want to steal Shion's puppets and flatten them with Shion's mallet.
I want to Shion.
I want to steal Yuu's front hair and expose her forehead.
She's just a bit out of the loop, she'll be fine after some socializing.
The Shion carefully considers the optimal way to eat her cake, unlike certain lesser idols who don't understand self-restraint.
Was it love?
Does it go beyond this?
futaba has much funnier idle threads than us
Stop this, please.
I'd tap that ass.
no no no you know, the OTHER demographic, people like you and me.
The hell happened here today? The Spiral of Madness is as predictable as ever I see.
I'm actually 14, ohohoho- I mean teehee~
Mom keeps telling me I might be getting too old for these kinds of things...
That Christmas episode was inspiring though! The whole North of Japan, from Hokkaido to Tokyo getting together to help throw a ridiculously bad ass Christmas party all from an off the cuff comment from a celebrity.
It's the stuff dreams are made of!
I think [email protected] is also out in english, but only on iOS.
I was starting to think no one was going to recognize where the quote was from. Love you! anon.
How about I take a potato,
split it open and fill it with my cheese and butter?
Ajimbles is perfect, Ranko needs more screen time.
I hope Ajimi cums all over you.
I'm glad there are so few of us and we live so far apart because if we did half the shit we say we'd do together we'd get as creepy and infamous as
bronies. I still wish we could hang out together.
SUICIDAL ANON DID NOTHING WRONG
Hibiki and Ajimi really carry the show now.
When they fade into obscurity like Aroma, the show will go back to being shit.
I hate the fact Hibiki won't win and Lala's going to corrupt her with her cancer-like mindset.
Well I want everyone to be friends and everyone to be an idol!
Then it'll be just like /ai/.
Everyone can be friends and everyone can be an idol.
That doesn't mean everyone can be high tier.
This is why PP's conflict is retarded, in PR pretty much every person in the world could do prism shows, but only a select few could be called the best.
>That doesn't mean everyone can be high tier.
Exactly, and the problem is that you will grow way more with 1 rival than with 10 friends, luckily Hibiki's gonna save us from this horrible era.
The current conflict, in the way they portray it, is god awful because they keep insinuating that having the talented in the top ranks and striving for the top somehow disqualifies people from having fun and being friends.
The worst thing about the way they've set things up is that they've turned into some kind of hard work vs talent narrative when Lala herself was special snowflake status for being the first one to activate prism voice and have a completely successful live on her first try with even less practice time than Shion had.
The show is entertaining now, that much is true, but I can just see the writing going down the toilet by the end of the season and it all pretty much boils down to Hibiki being right when she criticizes them after her concert.
They all claim they want to be the best or to become kami idol, but all they do is dick around.
I'm honestly hoping with all my heart that at the end they don't just hand out the title of kami idol to everyone like they did with prism voice, because that shit was like watching some kind of socialist propaganda.
That's the problem, can't have Lala as the face of hard work when she is a genius, Mirei should have been the one negating Hibiki's mindset, but all she did was to stay shut after all the stuff Hibiki said.
>I'm honestly hoping with all my heart that at the end they don't just hand out the title of kami idol to everyone like they did with prism voice, because that shit was like watching some kind of socialist propaganda.
How did you feel about the end of AD?
I mean if you look at every episode since Hibiki came, or at least the last dozen or so, it's been Mirei who talks to her about what it means to be a genius and all the other associated things, and this is mostly in the real world. Lala just says the same thing every time, but Mirei and Hibiki explain themselves better.
Oh you were talking about that, yeah, she did and then Hibiki shuts her up almost every time while looking smug as hell.
The conflict they say they've got isn't really the conflict they actually have.
Is PriPara a fun passtime to bring friends together, or is it a serious competition where it matters how good you are? That's the thing Hibiki and Lala disagree about. Lala doesn't want to be Mizuki - she wouldn't want to be at the top if it meant being there alone.
ARD was specifically tied to Aira, it happens twice and she's the only one who can make it happen.
It's different from prism voice which required input from everyone to make the boats because everyone has prism voice and everyone got a dress.
The way I see it, they're opposites, Aira provides the means for everyone to be able to take part in the ARD, whereas with the boats it was everybody providing the means collaboratively.
But that in itself is one of the big problems.
Mirei has a legitimate reason to oppose Hibiki because she's been shit talking her about her ability for a while.
Lala, from an ideological standpoint has no reason to oppose Hibiki aside from the fact that Hibiki stole their shit, both of their ideas of what pripara should be can technically coexist without issue.
After all, Hibiki wasn't completely wrong when she said that they'd stagnated.
Lala and her main character status are what weaken this entire arc and it feels like the staff are too afraid to shift the focus to Mirei because of brand recognition.
Sometimes the main character has to take a backseat, even a piece of shit like Vanguard G realized this.
But it's not like it'll matter in the end, Hibiki will lose and they'll go on some long spiel about how hard work always triumphs.
It's both, and PR already addressed it.
There are plenty of people doing prism shows for fun and plenty of people in serious competition.
The idea that it's either one or the other is broken already.
Standing at the top doesn't necessarily mean being alone either, Hyein and Mia both ended up at the top together and MARs constantly overthrow each other for the title of prism queen each year.
Even with Bell, it's not like she up and abandons Oto and Wakana after she becomes queen.
Honestly, they could just resolve this whole issue by making a PvE scrub server and a PvP server and allow people to move freely between.
From this screenshot alone you can tell that team genius is going to lose.
Why is PP such shit?
No, maybe we should all be complacent like your faggot ass and slurp up all the diarrhea companies shit on our plates, that way they can make a buck off mediocre media and you can stay in your safe zone fellating Sunrise for throwing more idols under the bus and Tomy for following suit.
Oh but wait, if we did that you wouldn't be able to call people names anymore would you? :^)
Son, this is /ai/, you're supposed to support everything Sunrise does. Even if they kill your favorite idle on screen.
>implying I don't already pray to my sunrise shrine every night pleasuring myself to the idea of sucking Ranposter's dick whilst waiting for Hikari and dreaca to come back for an episode so I can praise banrise for being master storycrafters
You forgot to add
>while yelling I WANT TO FUCK LALA
Get it right next time faggot.
If you truly believe that Banrise has ever made a single bad decision with Aikatsu! then you deserve to leave /ai/ and kill yourself. Aikatsu! is literally the perfect anime and anyone who disagrees is a salty PRfag or JPfag who can't handle the fact that their shit shows are dead.
I can't wait to go back to the golden age of /aikatsu/. We're almost there, you fags just need to stop talking about shitty boys shows.
I wish Tomy and Sunrise would stop trying to periodically expand their casts.
It feels like they're just parading around corpses now.
Aikatsu and PP feel like they've been going on for too long.
It's at the point where I'd prefer yearly reboots like precure.
This. I hope PP reboots within the next year and that Aikatsu dies and gets replaced with a new banrise IP. Everything feels a bit stale lately, especially knowing that jewpet won't be around to provide some spice. Hopefully the Fairy thing will retain the spirit of jewpet at the very least.
I love Aikatsu but I feel like a fifth season could be the last. Ichigo will graduate high school and Akari middle school in the middle of it, set up the next successor in the latter half and end it off with a Masquerade + Mizuki + Ichigo + Akari + new face performance.
Aikatsu needs a reboot already indeed.
If the Fairy thing is animated by the studio that animated the comedy seasons of JP we're golden, if not, let's hope Kokoro and her balls can save us from the idol empire.
More than Lady yes, it'll make you hate a certain character too.
This might be the stupidest thing I've ever watched.
Aikatsu is eternal...as long as the merchandise is selling!
DUDE, LET ME IN. I'M A FAIRY.
YOU LIKE FAIRIES, DON'T YOU?
My favorite part about that picture is how Kokone, Akari and Hinaki are kinda giggling it off and embracing Miyabi's holy power while Yuu and Sumire seem to be trying to protect themselves, because one of them is a zombie and the other a vampire..
Anyone thinking Akari won't become the SLQ is delusional faggot kidding himself.
Akari will, as much as I hate it, become the next SLQ. She herself promised Ichigo that she will win the title, and Akari is really aiming hard for it. We are constantly reminded, not directly, that she is the best of her generation, so why wouldn't she win?
Unless we get another SUPERIDOL from America this year, Akari is set for winning the title.
You never know, since they've intentionally made it a point to remove explicit power levels from the information they give us. Every time we've checked Sumire has been above Akari so far (though they haven't checked yet this season). There also needs to be a goal for the end of the season. Maybe they'll actually do pair units again and bring back 2wingS and WM.
It's probably the only chance of Mikuru coming back though
Just had the best idea ever
What if the Aikatsu inevitable reboot is literally a reboot?
It restarts again with Ichigo and Aoi joining Starlight academy, with same seiyuus, but different singers, song and story. Characters would have different affiliations and age too. For example they're in some alternate Starlight where everyone is there including ded aidle.
Then Kaede would get actual screentime.
That's exactly what she wanted. Hell the OP even shows her performing alone so Mikuru can definitely come back without WM being reinstated. 2wingS is getting a new song for Photokatsu though so hopefully they at least return.
How about a parallel story told from a sidle's point of view?
>Literally Aikatsu SBR
I would pay for it.
Play the Ds games.
Whatever you want, each season of JP is different and a good starting point because the show itself it's crazy, or serious and deep.
What is Kaede gonna do when Yurika ditches her?
I'll take Yuu's performances for $500.
Only a few hours left until Hibiki definitely saves PP from the evil clutches of Lala.
Time to make your final bets. Who will win?
Best Girls team or Less Best Girls+CuteBoy team?
Needless to say I'm betting on Best Girls team.
