Yeah, I’m still working on putting actual witty titles for my reviews.
This review was delayed a bit because 1.) I was dead tired from work or 2.) Dark Souls 3 kept me occupied. But anyway, I’m obviously 4 episodes in and while I love Rola and S4, and I do like the new direction, Aikatsu Stars! is lacking that charm the OG Aikatsu! had. Of course it’s too early to judge Stars!, but for now, the show lacks something and I’m not enjoying it as much as the original.
Or maybe I’ll enjoy the episodes more if I have people to discuss the anime with. Right. The review.
The longer version would be “do what you usually do.”
The big audition called Uh… Kumiwake…? More or less the “Class Selection Audition” ( :V ) is just around the corner and Yume must continue to work hard in order to pass, and be in the same class/group as her beloved S4 member Shiratori Hime. Unfortunately for Yume, things aren’t going well as she had hoped.
And there’s nothing wrong with that.
I’m gonna write this post like a review, so I will no longer gonna comment on every little detail found in the episode. The quick synopsis, review, and final thoughts is (hopefully) going to be the format I will be using.
Let’s dive right in.
I’m drinking a bottle of Asahi Beer Super Dry as I’m writing this. Normally I don’t drink any form of alcoholic drinks because I get drunk easily (you don’t want to see me drunk), but I made an exception this time because, as you can see, I’m obsessed with anything Japanese. The beer is rather light on the alcohol content and it’s sometimes flavorless. Not drunk.
Aikatsu Stars! episode 01 aired recently and here is my episode review of it.
To start, I don’t know what format I’m going for reviews, so I’ll just write my thoughts of each notable scene/screenshots. I won’t go into great detail because I certainly don’t want to make this post into a breakdown analysis of an idol show that just aired.
Of course these episode reviews are not spoiler-free so proceed at your own risk. Oh and I’ll be comparing the two shows because why not? Here we go!
Welcome to my new blog! I will be using this to divert non-fansub related posts from Lazy Lily Fansubs’ main site, and I will post stuff like episode previews, first impressions, episode reviews, general reviews, gaming related stuff and personal, uh stuff ranging from expressing an opinion of something and, uh… expressing my love for the Blue Goddess Kiriya Aoi.
Since I just basically started this blog, I have yet to develop a format to use, and I’m not sure how often I post. So apologize in advance for inconsistencies. I guess that’s about it.
