When you have a dream so good that you you wake up disappointed by your reality.
When you save up money to buy that cute necklace you saw the other day only to find its old out.
When you wait for summer to plan stuff with your so-called friends only for all of them to bail on you in the last minute.
Disappointing, hard and bitter, such is our
/ai/ - Idle Activities, but we learn to embrace it. For it's all we have left to look forward to.

Like the one in which Noelle is the MC?
It's time to bust out your crayons, coloring pencils, paint brushes, or your favorite paint program again, /ai/! For Coloring Project 4, you'll have to draw everything yourself! Since there isn't any squares to download, please make sure if you complete your square digitally that its 750x526 or your square will be resized.
And before we begin, I do have a question for you /ai/. Last project I rejected two squares trying to force a bare minimum of quality control and it ended up making some people unhappy. Do you want any quality control at all? Should we make a rule that memes are not allowed?
i'm going to be at a convention this weekend. i'll try to post this if there's a new thread while i'm gone.
>Those rekt sidles
Fine please let me have O1, If it turns out bad I'll pass it to someone else.
>Ran slimed by Ebipon
How am I supposed to stop having lewd thoughts about Ran when fan artists keep making this type of stuff?
As long as you put Love You and effort into it, it'll be great, anon!
I'll take O3. Also, don't be afraid to deviate away from the original style/art/image. If people do want QC, it would just be rejecting zero effort squares. I wouldn't reject anything just because you want to have fun and put Otome in Lala's outfit or something.
Anon that reserved text is so fucking cute.
How was the episode?
Laura pulled Aikatsu Step in that coord. No S4. We saw Anna's Spartan Training that was totally Aikatsu. Plenty of character development and we got a glimpse of the band Yurika-sama never had. Basically it was a totally awesome episode.
We also got Laura's back story and a lot of potential subplots for her in the future. I bet both the rock band she loves and her super-famous musician family will appear again. The family pressure could make her rivalry with Yume very interesting in the future.
>Roller's family threatens to disown her if she doesn't make it to S4
>the climax at the end of the first season in which Roller and Yume have to face off in order to take Hime's spot becomes a dramatic, emotional struggle in which friendships are tested and everyone cries
Are you ready, /ai/?
>dramatic scene in which Roller is having a nightmare in which she dreams she loses to Yume and she sees all of her ancestors and family say that they're disappointed, leaving her behind and all alone
HIRE ME BNP
Oh you, get out from here.
Threadly remainder that Mia is the best.
>Overslept and missed the livestream, only now was able to watch the episode.
It was a really good episode, my favorite of Stars so far. I'm really starting to love Stars after this episode and last, and I'm glad we're finally starting to see some real aidoru katsudou and auditions. All the girls are so good too, I can't even decide my favorite since Rola was so lovable this episode, but Tsubasa and Ako are great too. Looking forward to Koharu's episode next week and not-Mikuru.
One of these girls is also her, can't tell which though.
But not the best PR.
I thought she was going to be an actual rival but she's just Ran 2.0
Are you implying there's anything wrong with that?
Started working on LOVE YOU but I made it too big for my frame and I keep messing up the borders of the picture.
Mou, now I have to redo everything.
Will resume tomoworw, I'm really tired and my eyes are itchy.
Have this incomlpete work filled with love you~
Good night /ai/!
I want to fuck Lala.
Oh my, Sakuraba Mama.
>putting your shoes on the bed
Was Yume raised in a cave or something? Disgusting.
At least post the webm fellow Sumifan.
No Sumire bullying.
I don't like her.
Is there any side of Anna sensei that doesn't look good?
You don't understand how the hipsters feel about fashion. They were probably amazed at the hip sickness of their wild look. They'd never make fun of little girls (unless they come from here).
Yes, you were right, this feels so satisfying.
It's cool when 2 or 3 people use it, when every damn kid is looking the same and acting like they're so unique and special with varying degrees of crappiness it just looks like shit. Same as every other fashion trend.
I'm not exactly sure what you're not getting. Should I have specified which kind, as if it weren't obvious I was talking about the special snowflake superpower "there's a demon in my right arm and my eye contains futuresight" type? Or maybe you think that just because it's a fantasy world the very much normal human designers justify ridiculous shit because it's not like our mundane world, but makes sense there. Because it's not, they do it to appeal to the people who play the games.
That's why I said "looks".
Oh you're just begging for it aren't you
Don't worry Shion, even if no one else loves you, I do!
Congratulations, you reached the point where stuff starts happening.
I'll be laughing at you
because i'll still be watching and enjoying it.
I'm on my way to the floor to worship that glorious forehead.
Are China dresses lewd?
Yes. Stop that.
Don't do that.
At the long run? Probably, we can't say for sure yet till Stars get the same/similar number of episodes.
Episode by episode in 1:1? Stars is way better, it took a while for Aikatsu to become the Aikatsu we all know and love.
You only say that because Aikatsu came first.
>She catches you fapping to her
Here's the colored version of LOVE YOU.
I will remake my square though since this one is not the whole picture.
Thought I'd share.
Is this an Utena reference.
>Episode by episode in 1:1? Stars is way better, it took a while for Aikatsu to become the Aikatsu we all know and love.
Bullshit. It took me 4 episodes to fall in love with Aikatsu.
I was entertained since the early episodes but I remember getting hooked on as soon as the best character showed up.
Kyou no oozora was donna sora?
It's time for Oozora activities!
According to the schedule, today was the last day I'll get to run with a break. From here on out it's realer than real. Have you begun your passionate idle activities yet?
That looks very cute! Great job.
Do not bully my project baby-tachi. I will fight you, anon.
Nope, just three times a week.

More than the good ones, what surprises me the most about PP is how bad their bad songs are. Like the omurice one.
Same here. Aikatsu episode 3 and 4 were great and what hooked me on s1. It's also right then that I saw how different it is from Pretty Rhythm. Pretty Rhythm is shoujo sports show while Aikatsu tried to be as much as realistic as possible.
One of the biggest reasons I liked Aikatsu s1 was how everything is dealt in a realistic way and some episodes like 3 feels like an objective documentary.

It's a bird, it's a plane! No... it's Laura!
This show brought to you by the Better Encoding Borough, now with smaller filesizes and higher quality.
I hate English.
I really hope this comes up frequently when Yume and Rola actually need to go against each other.
Man I can't watch any character with Sumire Morohoshi's voice without thinking of Ichigo saying those lines.
why am i so FLAT
Why the fuck couldn't they give her a fitting song and stage though?
>/ai/ - Idle Activities
Wow fuck you. I read all that shit thinking this was an anime dreams thread.
Why is she so flatty FLAT flat flattity flat fla ta ta
Can we talk about im/@/s related dreams too?
Because I have none. ;_;
I won't shit up your thread with my unrelated fantasies. Enjoy your /ai/doling activities, ladies/gentlemen/producers.
I knew someone would ask this.
>audition for individualistic idles
>the one standing up in the middle right is just a third Ichigo recolor
>It's a Laura episode
Why is she such a best?
>She didn't wear the cowgirl outfit
I can't help but be disappointed.
>trying too hard
Help /ai/, she gives me funny feelings in my heart. I don't know what to do with them.
Big Match Rola
sorry I couldn't resist
This episode had some fine writing for Aikatsu. When they were going through the outfits (>>141783485 >>141784253), Yume nonchalantly mentioned that Oriental Laura would be hard to dance in. This is no coincidence, as it comes straight out of what she learned from Yuzu a couple episodes back. Then right after when Anna comes by in the cafeteria, she only realizes that Laura is struggling not from her own face, but from Yume's look right behind her. There's also some great direction where the music cuts off immediately at Laura's "Eh?" after being told she's forcing it during the interview, plus her fantastic voice acting. And again, we have the two times Yume says "that's not like you" put into direct contrast with her "it's really like you" before Laura realizes that she's been worrying for nothing. All of these benefit from not being spelled out directly, but happening in such a way you can recognize without any doubt that it's unintentional.
Then we have one of Aikatsu's specialties, adding new meaning to the song. In this case it was a direct reference to the line "kosei no hikari wo musundara // We're connected by the light of individuality". Plus, it was first mentioned by Anna in episode 1 for double the punch.
But perhaps most important of all was the overarching message of the episode. That while it may seem everyone around us is so unique and stands out so much, it's simply the sum whole of our likes and dislikes that make us who we are. I'm sure everyone has struggled with this at least once in their lives, thinking they're boring and worthless compared to others. But that's just not true. We all have our own individuality, and we all have our own value. Aikatsu is inside of us all.
Sumire-chan's turn to find love with Kasumi.
And then Sumire's kabe-don, holy shit. How aggressive.
>Up until now I had been writing a story for nobody's sake, which is to say it was for everybody's sake
>But now I want to write a story just for you
>When I finish, will you read it?
Bland character, might as well not be there and all that.
Cute as usual. Next episode is Rose looking for love, and then Dante vs whoever in a unicorn race.
>But that's just not true. We all have our own individuality, and we all have our own value. Aikatsu is inside of us all.
Fuck you, don't decide for me.
