Ladies and gentlemen my name is HOSHIMIYA ICHIGO, I'm here to ask and answer one single question, WTF is
/ai/ - idle activities
Why? You're gonna do something if we don't, faggot?
I want to fuck Lala.
Australians, in my /ai/?
I thought we were all beanlanders and a single token white guy.
I don't think you'll have to worry too much about that.

I forgot what the preview for this episode was about but are we Jewelpet level fun now? I mean moreso than usual.
Look at this asshole. And apparently this is part one of a story arc? I hope someone tears him a new one instead of feeling sorry for him. Mashiro was bad enough but he's not worth humanizing/befriending.
This thread is now consecrated to Hinaki's name. Please refrain from posting anything related to Yuu.
Does it bother Dorothy that her brother is prettier and more feminine than she is?
No, I want to be her abused wife.
SHE'S BEEN SHOVED OFF THE STAGE BY HER KOUHAI
SHE'S NOT TAKING IT ANYMORE
AIKATSU AIKATSU I KILL YOU
COMING TO A THEATER NEAR YOU IN SPRING 2016
Fear the titty dragon's might.
I love Mion-sama so fucking much.
So fucking much.
And all of you as well!

>Rides on Ichigo's coattails to glory
Don't you see it? Otome is KEYSER SOUZE!
I think you might be confusing Otome with someone else who likes rainbows.
Where did she go wrong?
I can and I will, god as my witness. Mion is for
Kaede is a Murrican.
She's comic relief.
When she chose that abortion of a coord.
She never went wrong, she's always been great.
Nina is perfect as she is.
Cool but Suzuri did it better and with style.
And blood lust.
I miss Suzuri.
Otome's cute, not comic relief.
My double dubs nigga.
What a faggot.
I managed to download a half of the missing part of 47, so there's that.
The raw on nyaa. There are no seeds but the leeches had 75% of 47. I'm watching this until it cuts, the rest of the first half in chinese in youtube and the second half was in the subs playlist.
Well I'm dumb. since I never use them it didn't occur to me it was an option.
Otome and Nina are pretty much opposites. Otome is, so far as I can describe, perfectly straightforward and her entire life is embodied by who she is as an idol. She works hard publicly and privately, takes the lead whenever she can, and is proactive in gathering others and converting them to the path of Love You. Nina in contrast is deliberate and calculating in her Aikatsu, as she pretty much said herself. She intentionally fuses comedy with idolhood, and trains them both separately and together. Unlike Otome's unbridled positiveness, Nina has a cooler head and chooses when to unleash her passion. Besides using Pop brands and pretty colors, they're nothing alike.
all you nina haters can fuck right off. I'm sloshed and I love her. Fuck you guys, I love nina. I'll beat up everyone who doesn't.
Monster Hunter Stories anime will have 46 episodes and air during daytime. Does that make it an /ai/-lite show?
Your character analysis is basically the same thing I said with more words.
That said, 39 episodes and finally another one of the original guardians get to Chara Transform. I hope they don't drag this out with the others.
All of them. Especially Candy Alamode.
A person's character comes from both their reaction to events and the motivations surrounding them.
Otome is extremely spontaneous. Nina is very careful and calculating. They may lead to the same result when interacting with people but those are NOT similar personalities. Come on Anon.
Is it folly to fall in love with a fictional character?
no, fictional characters are the best. Reality is fucked.
Am i rite, Yuufriend?
>They may lead to the same result when interacting with people but those are NOT similar personalities.
No but the fact they have the same motivations, to make people laugh and to be cute, are.
This woman is lewd as fuck. Tomorrow I start the last cour. Tueday I finish and maybe start on Doki!
Show me a better sidle than SpLasH!
You can't because all idles are best idles in their own way.
Potatoes are pure sex, impossible to not
Ichigo is pure.
Aoi is her OTP.
I like Nao, but that face is not Nao.
Oh, uh, good evening Bukki. I wasn't expecting you here tonight.
I had a dream about Pripara.
It was a space themed performance with 10 characters, all wearing the same space suit, and instead of dancing they were floating on circle patterns while doing poses, both Mireis were present and the song had fast beats.
Space activities when?
I've been wanting to rewatch that so bad for a while now, but I'm already 3 episodes behind Aikatsu, 6 of Pripara, and I've given up MC completely. God, I wish I was a NEET again.
I haven't watched PP in months.
Have they used any more TRF songs since this one?
>nearly 50 episodes later
>still no Gloria and Lalamom duo TRF performance
>literally less than a few months in Starlight
>considered among the best
Is this why they're so
A bit lower please.
I wonder what he did with it later.
This episode was cute.
Now while I understand the purpose of the episode was "let's create a doll to spark passion and inspire dreams in children who wish to become idles," all I saw was "let's create a doll that exploits and objectifies popular idles in order to lines the pockets of toy and fashion designers."
Maybe this machiavellian real world is interfering with my perception of the pure Aikatsu world.
Episode 163 of a toy commercial seems a bit late to be complaining about rampant commericalism. And while shilling toys to kids isn't exactly above reporoach I'd hardly call it exploitative.
Also this office cake was cute.
This shot of Shion made me love her even more.
I guess Hibiki won her princesses
That DAME has to be the most expressive thing Charon said since the beginning of the episode.
Couldn't go back to sleep again so I guess I'm finishing this. Hard to post anything while trying to not spoil the other bro at the same time.
I kept thinking it only would have taken a white deck to stop Tegamaru a lot sooner, but then how would they get the little kids to but packs. Yuuki and J must be turning in their graves.
>Mom, dad, I broke your stadium. Sorry.
Well this was one long ride. 48 onwards made me age at least 10 years.
Goddamn, why is Pripara so legit now?
Fuwari was so pitiful and sympathetic when I saw her coughing weakly and unable to do anything but return to her homeland, and Hibiki even didn't expect her departure. I feel like the entire genius versus effort dichotomy takes on a new light when you keep seeing Mirei fail over and over again to beat the Princess team, and if you imagine the managers in Neko's bar being these old producers drinking their sorrows away about failing their previous idols it kind of makes you feel for them. This is good, and not just good for Pripara. Plus, when Ajimi showed up I thought it was just a random reference, but it seems she has some history with Hibiki too now. Maybe we'll find out she actually was very similar to Lala and the verbal tic crew in the past, but something happened to change her. That, and the emotional scenes with Shion and Sophie leaving were well done.
My prediction: Hibiki and the Princess team win, there's half a year of PR reruns, and then a new series that's a combination of both starts.
One of the best things of Heroes is the OST, so comfy.
Without being a spoiler at all, right now all of PriPara boils down to two opposing factions: Lala, who's motto is "Everyone is friends, everyone's an idol!", and Hibiki with "Your shallow pretend 'friendship' is holding back the true beauty and perfection of idolhood". It's quite literally and intentionally Pripara vs Pretty Rhythm.
Pripara got a lot better in the first arc of second season when they were focusing on Aromaggedon, but then slumped into mediocrity again during the Fuwari arc. However, when Hibiki finally started putting
herplan into motion, things got infinitely better and more entertaining. All the threads of character development, however few there were, started to connect themselves, and it feels like everything has been a huge buildup for these two rival factions of genius versus effort. Also, Hibiki is such a great character in various aspects. As >>134753550 said, the hero Pripara needed to get good. I was feeling bleak about the series' future, but ever since this new arc I've been excited for every possible development and it's actually delivering.
Ajimi will have some kind of important role to play. Unless this is fake of course.
This is still one of the most all-around solid performances in all of Pretty Rhythm. Not the best song perhaps, not the best choreography most likely, but the one that blows most everything else out of the water by the sheer amount of build-up and character development done before during and after.
> who stopped watching after S1.
Are you me? It was really great until that (aside from songs which were mixed between nice and fairly garbage and costumes which nosedived every second episode there was a new one) but then it really began slowing down in a bad way.
There were in fact very good arcs in S1. Gloria and Lala's mother, Sophie becoming independent from her squad, and at the very least the build up to Falulu. The ending kind of squandered it all by pretty much saying Lala isn't all that special and the McGuffin was pointless, but I feel like that specifically is coming back for this climax. My one problem that won't go away though is the lack of songs. I mean really, Falulu sang the same song again today. Sure it had different lyrics/was the second half, but it sounded exactly the same and with the same choreography.
Sorry for bad picture. Birds left the nest yesterday,
found them un a patch of dirt in front of my building, together.
Hopefully their parents will find them amidst this street's never ending noise. I'm so tempted to pick them up and put them back in their nest so they can fly to a tree branch.
Ichigo means strawberry.
Strawberries are sweet and I like putting them in my mouth. I also like licking their sticky juice off my fingers. But after I'm done enjoying strawberries there are usually seeds all over the place.
Official /ai/ slosh time is now over. Please put away your drinks and take care of business as usual.
But my time off work starts today.
Got to the last two episodes of season 2. All I have to say so far is:
>create the environment that produced Seira
>be one step ahead for one hundred fucking episodes
>dream of surpassing the best idol unit ever
>try to do it by unknowingly facing off against the daughter of one of its members
Everything was worth it.
Brush up on your idol history.
I'm glad you enjoyed it. Now I'd just like you to ask yourself one thing: Are you more happy that Ichigo won, or that Mizuki lost? You don't need to answer, I'd just like you to think about it.
After searching in a ton of places I was able to find the first part of the episode 47 subbed with shitty quality, beggars can't be choosers I guess.
>2Wings's performance was shit though
I have to wonder, why doesn't anybody post the very next shot of Mizuki and Mikuru? It's not even a different cut, it happens not two seconds later. I feel like people just want to ignore that part for some reason.
I literally took the screencap as I got to that part and posted. Yeah, ultimately WM surpassed Masquerade too because the stage they were on was much bigger.
I like Mizuki a lot, I just wanted Ichigo to win after all this time.
I liked how the performances were completely different. Yeah, WM's was way more grandiose and the song is better, but 2wingS' being more grounded isn't an inherently bad thing in my opinion. Also, WM were retarded to use regular Rare dresses against 2wingS' Premiums.
Wasn't WM using Premium Rare? But yes, 2wingS used Constellation Premium Rare. However, that's no excuse as to the outcome, as Mizuki specifically chose those coords as the very best possible dresses to use. She held absolutely nothing back, which is why I believe that she's completely satisfied by the result.
Maybe I'm not 100% clear on how they work, but WM's dresses had the top and bottom as a single piece with a power level (don't know its official definition) of 900, while the boots were in the 400-500 range. 2wingS' dresses had separate tops and bottoms, each in the 700 range along with the boots. The first one counts as regular Rare, doesn't it?
> Yeah, WM's was way more grandiose and the song is better
Which is why they should have won. The only reason they didn't is because the writers wanted Ichigo to beat Mizuki which would be fine if they gave 2Wings a good performance but they didn't. 2Wing's performance wasn't even as good as previous duos they did together before then.
Well, I disagree with you. 2wingS inspired me to get up and do something with my life. 51% of people also agree with me. Where's your argument now?
There is no argument. But you shouldn't feel bad, because 49% of people agree with you. That's a lot.
No, she started as a cancerous wart on her grandma's neck.
Nonochii. Risappe wouldn't make the same kind of sounds that she does and would probably be too embarrassed at you seeing her naked to have sex with you. Hell Risappe would probably put her clothes right back on as soon as she finished taking them off and saw you looking at her.
Nono, without a doubt.
>you will never have this close of a relationship with another person.
This was pretty great, it's the first time I watch a cardgame show that doesn't evolve into an ancient evil magic fest, like the first half of the first season of Vanguard but with a ton of fun added.
Heroes was truly the age of Red, I hope Sword Eyes has a White user as the rival once again.
What's stopping you?
That part reminded me of the time everyone wondered why he wanted all 13 core on his dragon. Then he put only 5 and got rekt.
I feel like that last duel should have been in the tournament. Yes he wouldn't have achieved his dream otherwise but it was so convenient that Hajime didn't draw the nexus he had since India, and he also didn't use the life recovery efficiently. I'm sour that we didn't get to see the Arata-Hajime duel.
Tegamaru is never going to have better friends than those two.
I agree with you, I wish the last duel would have been a super hot blooded competition between Arata and Hajime at the world tournament, and yeah, Hajime played like shit against Tegamaru in the finals. Chihiro is best girl.
Watched the first two episodes of season 3, the movie is coming up soon. Also, screw it, I'll write my impressions of the whole show (and individual seasons) once I'm up to the present point rather than doing it now. I want to have the whole picture.
The real winner was this guy all along.
I don't lurk your threads, but I really like to read through your OPs and get surprised by the spoiler every time.
I only came here this time to tell you that this OP is shit. SHIT.
>you will never be the little girl
He was never a contender.
Anthony feels like one of the real losers. I'd buy his picture.
I hope they become the main characters and don't get ignored.
I would. The potatoes are the best thing to happen to Aikatsu in a long time.
I want to move to Hokkaido.
The smog kills the Fuwari.
>Be happy living with nature
>Dragged to the city by someone who just wants to use you
>Forced to wear clothes and shoes, and sleep on an uncomfortable bed alone
>Put into difficult training with no explanation
>Manager is a whiny crying useless bird
>Heart broken when you realize your love is a girl
>Heart broken again when she pretends that she liked you
>Fall so ill you're forced back home
Being Fuwari is suffering.
I guess Shion's gonna join best girl for the best girl team.
Don't forget her Ticket was stolen.
Oh good god she has a dakimakura
Holy flying fuck. I need $300
Yup, it's a team filled with best girls.
Wait, Aromageddon didn't even appeared in the episode.
I've always liked Momona a lot, as far a MC goes. Episode 8, by the way.
She's so fucking cute.
They've been doing them since episode one. Right now, Momona, Lilian and Charon have made them. Mizuki should follow pretty quickly.
Boys are really nice too, I have to say.
Oh, and Soarer spoke in this episode.
I miss them. Do you want me to put them here?
Actually, it's a bit late, so this will be my last episode for today.
Nayakan a cute.
The letterbox is one thing, but player controls? Find a little girl to teach you how to take screenshots.
My mistake. I usually wait for them to wear out of the screen and take the screenshot afterwards. It must have gotten out of my attention. I'll be careful not to do it again,
Will do, and the next episode should be the first one where Mizuki does it.
See you little girls tomorrow.
Finally. Aromageddon will have another episode, I really missed Aroma, she's best girl. Hibiki should scout her for team filled with best girls.
She seems really motivated I like that.
>Nene in the episode
Ssh, Sumire is sleeping.
brb, off to grab me some scissors.
This is too exciting because I don't know who is gonna win.
So this is the power of the new generationsthe future looks bright with them.
Isn't it exciting? Isn't it just the coolest? In Aikatsu, you never know what'll happen when.
It's a pretty cute van.
Starting the last cour and...there was no buildup to this. It's cute though.
Please no ;_;
!!! The OPs are back. I repeat. The OPs are back! The ED returned awhile ago but this is the first time there's been an OP with my copies in nearly 30 episodes.
