Aikatsu Stars! Episode 23 Review: Silver Lily


Another day, another episode to review. I won’t go in-depth with this because there’s really nothing much to talk about unless I spoil everything. The episode is fun, though.

I had trouble writing this review because I have a metric ton of other things to do. I just can’t keep up, but I’ll try to make this review somewhat readable.

Aikatsu Stars! Episode 22 Review: How to not self-produce 101


When I was young, around the time MTV actually meant “Music Television”, I was rather picky when it comes to artists I follow, and with one exception, I never followed the local artists. The reason for that is they’re only popular because of their looks and some okay-ish singing skills.

There was a popular teen actress promoting her new debut album on TV. While it was nice she’s making a CD single for her fans to enjoy, what she said really turned me off. She said “the CD contains revivals of popular songs” and that killed my interest of ever checking her CD out. “Where is your original song? It’s your debut single, surely you have something original to sing.” I said to myself.

It’s not even an isolated case, 90% of these singers always say their CDs are a collection of revivals. This lack of originality and lack of passion to sing made me hate my local artists and throughout my childhood, the only local artists I cared for was the Eraserheads. Oh yeah, Boyzone is my most-hated boy band in the 90s.

And yes, this is relevant in my review of episode 22.

Random rant about something


Aikatsu Friends Beat Punk

Let me treat this blog as a blog for once, so I’ll rant something that’s been bugging me for a while (even though I already know the answer to this).

It’s been more than a year since we started scanlating Aikatsu! doujinshi and I’m actually surprised how much we improved, like I became the group’s typesetter mainly because we’re understaffed and got more helping hands. I’ve improved after I did typesetting for a few doujinshi (I TS’d 80% of the doujins), and aside from that, my Japanese reading skills slightly improved. I can recognize a few kanji so there were times I can read sentences without looking up the kanji’s definition. I’m still far from perfect and I still need a checker to, well, check my translations.

Anyway, yeah, I’m a fansubber and I started around in 2007 but I only recently started scanlation.

Now for the actual rant.

“Are you quitting on me? Well, are you?!”

Poor Pvt. Pyle-chan. ;_;7

A couple of days late because I was busy with Photokatsu. I LITERALLY (and figuratively) reached 20,000 points in less than 3 days. Yeah, that’s how obsessed I am. Now that I have acquired all items and got some sweet SR cards, I’m back to review another Aikatsu Stars! episode. Isn’t that swell?
