Synopsis

An idol's brilliance illuminates the dreams of humanity. Starlight Academy, a holy ground for celebrities in training, seeks to realize this belief. Behind its rigorous entrance requirements lie not only the top young stars in the entertainment business, but some of the best memories these students will ever have.

Or so Aoi Kiriya believes. Alongside her best friend Ichigo, Aoi decides to apply for the prestigious private school in hopes of living up to the praise of the biggest idol in the world: Mizuki Kanzaki. As they journey through the numerous laughs, friendships, and heartbreaks that await them, can the two girls light up the lives of others as Mizuki has done for them?

Whether it be chopping down Christmas trees, traversing obstacle courses, or even rock climbing, there's always a playful new adventure to be found in the world of Aikatsu!.

Honestly, this is the most beautiful anime ever made. At least for me. It's just a cute story about cute idols making everyone smile, and that's all I need to be happy. There are no stupid misunderstandings in Aikatsu, all the characters are always nice to each other and there are no serious conflicts going on.

So please, watch Aikatsu if you're the kind of person who would like to live in a perfect world with no hate ...

If you rate it very high, only 7 points, because it affects many mary sue factors. I know Aikatsu is my childhood, but when I watch it again, I don't appreciate it.

Do you have a dream? Do you know somebody with a dream? Now tell me this: Do you believe that a dream can be accomplished if effort becomes an ingredient in the story that is your life? Hoshimiya Ichigo certainly has a case for any doubters of this theory. Who is Ichigo you ask? Hoshimiya Ichigo is a normal girl like numerous young girls who watch this in Japan. Hoshimiya Ichigo is a normal though animated human like all of my readers. Hoshimiya Ichigo had a dream and with effort, turned her scoop into a mic. Hello readers, this is Aikatsu.

Aikatsu is an anime that ...
