The show is on ~70 now and all the discussion threads are basically complaints about the new idols and stuff.

Your posts are not "the discussion threads".


They aren't?

Haha yeah I have definitely been the most vocal about it, but out of the limited number of people who even post on the Aikatsu threads, a good handful don't like the Dream Academy idols and the focus of this season so far.

Well, good for the fans!!
I don't really dig Anime like this, but I might watch it if I got convinced.
A lot of good comments about this Anime huh.


Actually, I would stay away. Season one (1-50) was very charming and if you could get into it it was a very enjoyable show. However, the general consensus seems to be that season two (51+) is just bad. The show is on ~70 now and all the discussion threads are basically complaints about the new idols and stuff.

(I will always be upset that the seasons were combined on MAL lol)

I feel like this kind of means there will be an S3. The movie comes out in December and if Aikatsu stopped after this season that would be a gap from October to the movie with no anime. IDK.

Do I need to watch the TV series (season 1) to watch the film?
I'm not sure, but most likely yes.

I'm actually quite excited about this, I'll be sure to watch this. I did enjoy the first arc a lot, but ever since the second arc, they started introducing a bunch of new characters which kind of make it less interesting. The creators need to understand that an anime needs closure and if they want to make a second season, they don't have to introduce a bunch of new characters or make a brand new storyline.

Well, I was planning to watch the series soon, now that Precure has massively gotten me into these sort of shows.
If the show's any good, then a movie is more than welcome.

nice. I know it's a shoujo show but the first series as good. the second not soo much.

Since Aikatsu earns more money than Precure that was predictable.

More of this kind of shows is always welcome, now I only have to catch up with Pretty Rhythm.

I've actually known about this, since I read about this on Anime News Network. I might as well watch the movie if I ever get around to watching the anime again.
