Oh, Aikatsu, how I missed you being so good!

NOTE: This is the first season where Voice and Song actresses are the same people. That's why some of the earlier songs are a little rough around the edges versus the seasons with professional singers, and honestly, I think that's just fine - in fact, it makes sense given their characters are supposed to be 'bad/new' at the start too!

CHARACTER: 8

Unlike Stars, which felt like someone slapped new names and hair colours on OG characters, FRIENDS actually creates a very unique crew, with surprisingly realistic arcs.

I love Aine's growth from simply following Mio along, to actually being read more

My expectations for Aikatsu Friends! was way too high. Aikatsu Stars! was great and I just couldn't wait for the next series.

Then we have Aikatsu Friends!

I was way too hyped for this series, I regretted it. First episode was okay, that was because we were first introduced to the new dressing room (I thought that was cool) and our brand new protagonist, Aine.

I liked the art, the character designs weren't that bad except, they decided to throw in rainbow hair colours that matched their idol type. For example, Aine (cute-type): pink, Mio (cool-type): blue, Maika (sexy-type): purple and so on. The only characters that contradict read more
