Yume Nijino has been accepted into Four Stars academy, home of the beautiful and talented S4 idol group. She and the other newcomers are determined to discover their talent, with a choice of specializing in beauty, singing, dancing, or drama. A tough road lies ahead of them, and they must rely on each other to overcome their weaknesses and develop their unique strengths.

At the first-years' opening performances, Yume performs stellarly but faints and is unable to remember being on stage at all. Struggling to find her talent, she meets Rola "Laura" Sakuraba and the two develop a friendly rivalry, working together to learn and improve.

Though they have their differences, all the students share the same goal: to become the next S4 idol. But hard work and determination, along with teamwork, are needed if they want to join the elite S4.

I have watched aikatsu since the first original one and the first season of aikatsu itself is really good in my opinion.

Though, it become more 'weird' and having no clear direction of the story, after it ended, I have quite high hopes for aikatsu stars.

Still, Aikatsu stars has some similarities with the original aikatsu which some makes me happy and some not.

For the characters for instance, I don't know why but I kinda think that they are kind of running out of ideas in making new characters? because in my opinion, almost every main character are like fusion of two characters from the original one.

With the common motif in the anime being cliche, it also demonstrates it's own repetition. Many of the songs are reused numerous times, even in the same episode. The dress maker transformation seems to happen every episode as a filler. The predictability of the plot and the characters being your basic shoujo/idol main characters does not make me want to finish the series. This is your typical 'cute girl' anime while the live performance costumes ruin the 'cute.' I would not want to continue watching this anime to see if it gets better. In conclusion: if you watch one read more

I feel like this as the first season was sorta flawed I feel like alot of more characters could've been read more

Getting near the end of the anime, I think I have seen enough of it to get a good grasp of what it is and what It has become compared to its predecessor.

First of all, this is not really an anime that will appeal to everyone because of its structure: an episode which comprises a song (sometimes from a pool of songs already heard once if it's a filler episode), a short story for the fillers or plot for the others. There are not as many fillers as its parent anime Aikatsu and overall they have improved a lot in the character development and visuals read more
