And someday everyone's idle activities
Will come true!

Also, Michiru is a girl. Nino really is hopelessly outmatched here.
Who were they trying to appeal with this ED?
Yes, but for the final cour, you'll have to manually add these sub files to certain raws: https://mega.nz/#F!WB9XhYQS!WhFBi3sXDakPpr74aWdxMA
As for said raws, can anyone confirm the one in the /ai/ pastebin are still the wrong ones? I think you need to ask the correct ones to Fleppensteyn on Rizon's IRC. I personally didn't get them that way, so forgive me if I'm mistaken.
I want to fuck Lala.
Just caught up with Pripri Chii-chan.
Yuka a cute.
I wanna dream about Yui's ass too.
This one is missing pupils. Please pay more attention, artist-san!
She is perfect for me and perfect for you!
Does anyone remember which live illusion event this was from?
Madoka is definitely the wife, right?
What didn't you like about it? The direct relationship between master and servant, as well as Aroma's creativity and idiosyncratic usage of the word, led me to decide a neologism would work well. I did look at the "standard" translations of koakuma (小悪魔) but didn't particularly like any of them or find them well suited there. (I did have "koakumateki" as "implike" in Meganee's Coord Change narration scene, because I thought that worked in that context.)
Fun fact: It's possible to sleep through Eternally Flickering Flame.
>[Mezashite] Aikatsu Stars! - 064 [2EB44333].mkv
May have to rewatch it, I don't even remember what was the episode about.
Stars is so good.
Don't bully Aikatsu-kin, it's not his fault Stars isn't as good as S1.
Nobody's bullying him:
>First, thank you so, so much to everyone I met at Anime Expo. All the fans, the cosplayers, the artists, and everyone else was so kind, and I just love meeting other people who feel the same way about Aikatsu. I’ll be back again, so don’t worry if you wanted to meet but missed me.
See? No mean ainon to bust into his safe space again to tell him Lily was robbed.
What would Otome's blood taste like?
Pripara is turning innocent young girls into lolicons
I want to die
You're probably right. So Michiru goes to PriPara next week (with pupils), but doesn't debut.
Her dress in the PV looked pretty different from what we've seen earlier. Was the other one her stage outfit?
Given how many of them there are there obviously heavy breeders.
This one is almost perfect.
>get to those episodes
>the whole screen has to be filled with subs because Ajimi just spams as many words as she possibly can in as short a time as she possibly can
Ajimi is the only idle I dislike more than Elza, she hits zero buttons for me
>that fanart of yume and ako getting fucked in their bikini
Yeah that one.
Found it on twitter. Ainon posted it here. >>159597606
>tfw I get called out for asking for sauce and call me retard
But I like my ainons so open wide.
Gacha hell is real.
Playing the Pripuz mystery rare event. I've got no hope of getting the MR, but I can at least grind the stars to pick up the PPR Aroma and Mikan that I don't have. Or so I thought.
PPR Mikan's the rarest card in the pool at 0.4% - I must have rolled about 50 x 11 Rolls, and not gotten a SINGLE PPR Mikan.
2 Aromas, about 5 Garurus and 4 Lalas. Shittons of SR EXP cards though, everyone's at max level.
Still got a day though, I can grind some more. Fucking Mikan PPR must get!
The only way to enjoy a mobage is to completely ignore the gacha or at least not expect anything from it. And if the game can't be enjoyed without good rolls then it's probably a bad game.
Hey I'm not paying anything, so it's fine (It's FINE I say!)
Only a few minutes to spin through my stamina and get another roll, so I'm not blocking out time specifically for it or anything.
Nah, I'm pretty sure there are pretty average PPRs. The ones that first showed up in the Christmas event I think. I just didn't have any Aroma/Mikan PPRs.
"chan" (for instance) doesn't have a meaning that translates to non-awkward English terminology, while "sama" in this context does. That's the gist of it, and it doesn't read strangely to me at least. Sorry if it does to you.
You'll also notice "Miss" is used for "san" when used by Meganii and Meganee, as such a term of address suits their polite and gentlemanly/ladylike personality, and Gloria/Babaria's old-fashionedness.
Each of them has a colour and a sense in their name
Kiki (yellow) Ajimi (taste)
Shikyouin (purple) Hibiki (sound)
Midorikaze (green) Fuwari (touch)
Kurosu (black) Aroma (aroma)
Shiratama (white) Mikan (sight)
PriPara's kind of deepest lore sometimes. The Nons have it going on too a bit.
Junon = Jew Non
Pinon = Piss Non
Kanon = 花（flower) Non
Then there's Chiri (chili) and Pepper (pepper).
The goddesses are their own thing, at least as far as I know.
Then why the fuck are you on 4chan?
Pripuz premium gacha is pretty much dead in the water for F2P anyway, you don't get enough free gems to regularly spin any more than a single roll at 2% for the headline cards. They haven't balanced it to properly tease people yet, I just ignore it most of the time.
Only reason this one is getting me if because it's free and easy to collect enough tokens to have a big spin, and I not having these cards has been leaving a hole in my line-up.
>And if the game can't be enjoyed without good rolls then it's probably a bad game.
If it wasn't for the events I'd just be on daily logins for this game. Pripuz Parallel has boosted my interest in this game through the roof, too many interesting designs not to pay attention to them.
The game itself is simple chain-6 gameplay, flick your stylus around to chain 6 of the same character face together and get a pripuz piece, get 4 pripuz peices and go Cyalume time. Taps stuff, get big score, win cards and coins. It's pretty basic and nothing to get excited about.
I do like how they've balanced the difficulty in that character and team synergys play a real big part, and you're often mixing up teams to get a good combination of skills, iine points, nakayoshis, and lucky points, as well as stage-specific target types, to get the desired effect.
However all that flies out the window when you talk about the premium gacha cards. If you were lucky enough to get Super Cyalume cards, you've got broken win everything cards. If you roll a premium event card, you win the event - triply so when it comes to the High Score events, where premium cards can boost your score well beyond what a non-gacha player can do.
Some events are fine though, you can handle point-grinding events without gacha cards. You won't get the top 100, but you'll be fine for one of the bigger prizes if you want.
Only time to spend money in Pripuz is the 100% special gachas.
Yuka isn't even the cutest character in her show.
This Junon seems more smol than usual. I'm not sure if that's good I like my Junons or not.
>good I like my Junons
*how I like my Junons
That might be the concept here.
With Prima Non-a, most certainly, but I feel Junon might work better aged up a bit.
Blackface will never not be funny
Tsubasa was a sexy idol all along.

I would love to watch these shows, because they're cute and and the only anime left that has actual lolis.
But I can't stand the simplistic plot, that they're idols, and that it's targeted at little kids. The latter wouldn't stop me, but it contributes to the fact that they are unwatchable, unless you're still a kid in your mind.
Pretty Rhythm: Aurora Dream is, plotwise, one of the best anime I've seen in my fucking life, I'm dead serious.
Honestly what I like about these shows is that even though they're supposed to be for kids, they don't necessarily make a low-quality or half-assed product just because "kids will eat it up anyways". Don't be fooled though, Aikatsu and Precure do seem follow this mentality, but the rest generally have a lot of love and talent put into them, and it results in interesting and fun plots, or top tier comedy, or both.
Dumb self-imposed rules. Who knows how many others you've come up with and how many good shows they've kept you away from.
>they are unwatchable, unless you're still a kid in your mind.
You WILL go back to being a kid in your mind, if you watch this stuff. And it will make you happier.
And seriously, watch Aurora Dream.
>anon doesn't have the heart of a little girl
If simplistic plot is a problem, maybe shows that usually don't really care about their plots or are very episodic would work for you? Have you checked out PriPara or some Jewelpet seasons? In Jewelpet they aren't even idols.
Aurora Dream was fun and good, but it did not have a particularly good plot to be hondesu. Aira's story was had very little in the way of believable or worthwhile development, Rhythm's backstory, her mother and Chris just felt like random elements jumbled together and Mion was best but didn't really have anything resembling an interesting story.
Great plots in kids shows for me are more like Princess Tutu, CCS or
Heartcatch. Even Aikatsu, while lower-key and more slow-burn, with much fewer plot episdoes, told a more convincing and well-constructed story for me, for Ichigo's story at least.
Simple doesn't mean it hasn't been thought out. And it's better than having suffering (when will it end?) and whatnot added in an attempt to confuse, have sick twists and get a reaction out of you
Simplistic plots are a lot more tolerable than plots which try way too hard to be profound, are infinitely laden with marketable cliches, or are just lazily copied from amateur LNs. No anime is going to be high literature, so just take it easy.
Idols are fun for everybody
Kid shows have some of the best writing and visual direction around, historically, even if its topically simple material. The episodic format really allows ambitious creators to shine.
>Simplistic plots are a lot more tolerable than plots which try way too hard to be profound, are infinitely laden with marketable cliches, or are just lazily copied from amateur LNs.
Luckily there are many anime that are neither of these things. Of course, if anyone were to mention any they happen to like, you'll call them pretentious and not worth watching as compared to "high literature", so you're in a good position to argue from.
Are they kneeling to prepare the fire? And this reminds me that Aroma already had a standing grudge with Meganee from the Halloween episode when they almost destroyed PriPara.
Will they get kicked out of Paparajuku too?
>when was the last time we actually got one?
We get a couple most years.
Rakugo was fucking great. It overdid the literally forced theatricality but the dying grumpy old man coming to terms with his failures, successes and so-called death of the artform he loves was fantastic.
The first three-quarters of Seikaisuru Kado were interesting and thought-provoking, if a bit simplistic and not falling far from the classic sci-fi fiction novels it clearly admires. I'll take a series that aims high and fucks the landing over along with nine average ones over ten that never try and succeed or fail.
Bahamut 2 is fun as fuck and has some really solid backstory writing like the episode with Jeanne and her kid.
Uchouten Kazoku was gr8, not as good as S1 but still great.
Youjo Senki had a pretty bold, simple concept of one man against destiny's stacked deck and just had fun with it, very enjoyable stuff. Watching Loli Blackadder's attempts to get out of the war comedically backfire due to her ego and knack for walking into trouble never got old and when it showed her from another angle (episode 1 and the episode with her rival from the other army) it demonstrated real character writing chops to portray her as an inhuman terror without detracting from her more balanced personality in the episodes purely from her POV.
ACCA wasn't half as clever as it thought it was, but it had atmosphere in spades and did justify its investment, like a good page-turner.
Kuzu no Honkai had serious problems developing most characters' stories, Evil Sensei was a walking joke of a character from the start and it also ran out of directorial tricks pretty quick, but... actually, no, fuck Kuzu no Honkai. First episode and the ones focusing on Moka were okay though I guess.
Anyway, that's this year so far.
It's pretty worth, maybe don't listen too hard to the people who say it's a masterpiece.
It's not big on sakuga but there's some excellent direction - framing, colour, shot composition - especially in the rakugo segments.
If you finish S1 and have issues with the eponymous shinjuu, the second season may change your view on that somewhat, so keep an open mind.
Anyway, hope you enjoy it.
New pripuz app update.
Fixed one issue I hated: Card slots now have separate counts for idol cards and upgrade cards.
So if you had 200 slots, you now have 200 idol card slots and 200 upgrade card slots.
It was so god damn annoying to have to repeatedly whittle down your upgrade mats to make room for idols.
are the songs from the idol time out?
I'd just like to interject for a moment. Who you’re referring to as “Rola”, is in fact, Laura, or as I’ve recently taken to calling her, Sakuraba Laura. Laura is not a member of S4 unto herself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning idol school made useful by the sidles, admins and student council comprising a full idol school as defined by Yotsuboshi Academy.
Watched Aurora Dream.
Thank you, anon who feels NTR'd from het in his shoujo shows, I wouldn't picked it up that soon otherwise.
It was pretty good, but a bit clumsy in handling some stuff. For example Callings being a trio who for no reason suddenly OTPs MARs is the worst trope. I guess Shou and Aira did their own thing and Rizumu's character made Rizumu and Hibiki work, but Wataru and Mion was just awkward.
Aira was pretty weak as protagonist too. Tiara Cup was probably her best moment in the whole show, while other moments with her were good only because of interactions with other characters. Which fits the prism theme I guess, but feels pretty meh.
Rizumu, Mion and Kaname were great though.
I hope you catched all the parallels with the first season of PP, they're pretty similar, heck, Falulu is pretty much vocaldoll Kaname.
>but Wataru and Mion was just awkwar
It's okay, they never became a couple and it's just Wataru chasing Mion.
>Aira was pretty weak as protagonist too
She was supposed to be a self-insert in universe anyway so I agree.
First season of Aikatsu was the best.
Season 2 of Aikatsu was fine if you don't count the ties.
>I hope you catched all the parallels with the first season of PP, they're pretty similar, heck, Falulu is pretty much vocaldoll Kaname.
I am going to rewatch it after I finish DmF and RL.
>expecting something different from not-serena nigger

bareta no ka! Sasuga /ai/ de gozaru!
Aikatsu S1 had the energy right and everything was new and exciting.
S2 onwards fell into the trap of trying to introduce new things but having too much baggage to drag around, as well as a reluctance to allow anyone to fail.
Stars doesn't seem to be embracing any of it's strengths really well and is just floundering in mediocrity.
Pripara S1 was played a bit too straight and they didn't really work out what they wanted to do with the show for a while.
S2 is brilliant. They tackled the characters and mixed everything up. They embraced the plot and used it to expand and shape the worldbuilding. They went from straight laced to wild and wacky, and loved every minute of it.
S3's plot was heavily biased towards the end of the season. Much of the season was focussing on newer teams, often to the detriment of older teams. And then there was that silly tournament that dragged on way too long.
Idol Time is pumping the wacky meter to TENSION MAX and is fun as all hell. However it suffers by being too soft of a reboot/sequel. Too much time early on was spent reintroducing old characters, while the new characters just sat there. Re-using the school banning Pripara plot was a bit bleh as well. But it's still got a way to go, and Gaarmageddon seems to be ready to kick things into high gear.
>Doroshi is not-Serena
Now it makes sense.
>Too much time early on was spent reintroducing old characters, while the new characters just sat there.
Let's hope Lala returns to her rightful place and everything can be murikawa-tsu + Garumageddon because they're banned from Parajuku.
It's not bullying if her pupils will turn into hearts.
she has no sex appeal whatsoever
Here, this girl would be more for your liking.
Is there a worse unit than this shit? For some reason if it had Ako in it and was a 4-girl unit or if it didn't have Mahiru and it was a 2 girl unit it would work better, though.
You mean Idol Time Morning coord Lala, right?
You missed the whole point, Aira was at most Clothing Designer Dream, it's Rhythm who was Aurora (Rising) Dream.
The whole title refers to her, the story was about her, and the show could only end when aurora rising is mastered, which was her personal goal that the others jumped on laterwards. She's the protagonist.
Aikatsu S1 (This is the only universally agreed one isn't it?)
PriPara S2 (Idle Time could overtake it though)
My heart says Doki but my conscience says Yes5 S1.
Or Shinkenger, or Jetman.
Same here, Sunshine was the best because it mixed well craziness with serious stuff while still being JP at it's core meanwhile KD was absolutely crazy with a strong social message.
God I wish that were me.
