Aikatsu Stars 62
This is the episode where Rola goes through some ridiculous trials to get to be the muse for Spice Chord.
Now almost all the main characters get their own brand except poor Ako.
As cool as Rola is, she is always willing to immerse in and enjoy her Taiyaki role which always make me smile.
Idoltime Pripara 12
This episode just reminds me how good is Pripara when Yui starts abusing her MC and friendship power.
I always liked how friendship saves the day and saves the world kind of theme in Pripara.
This also brings an end to first arc as the first grand prix ends, and appearance of Falala and Super Idol Time, which is starting the next arc on probably the actual Idol Time system?
Super Idol Time is definitely a clone of Kami Idol Challenge made better with their better 3D CG.
Yui really has grown on me since the first episode.
Since this is the end of first arc, I am writing a general impression of the first 12 episodes.
I didn’t really like Idoltime from the start as Yui is being too delusional and Lala lost her twintails, and forced to be pretty much useless.
Idoltime is also reusing the plot thread of headmistress not allowing them to Pripara and which is kinda boring by now.
Fortunately, this is already resolved by the end of this episode.
Idoltime is also still relying cameos from Solami Smile and Dressing Pafe to prop up this, and I hope they will start to tone this down for the new characters to support the show on their own.
I am still not a fan of Nino by now, but I guess I will grow on her like how I grow on Yui (Like pretty much all idol anime.
Episode 12 really excites me and revitalize my hopes for this.
Hope Idoltime will continue strongly.
