Beware the Blog (つぶやきにご用心) is the 7th episode of Aikatsu! TV anime series and the 7th episode of its "1st Season" (
Aoi's anxiety in facing Ran for an upcoming audition get's the better of her and as she begins to block out everything else except the strange advice she's been receiving from Kirakiratter.
One late evening in their dorm room, Aoi reveals a poster of the Pon-Pon Crepe Campaign Girl. Ichigo doesn't realize the importance of this, leaving her to explain that it's a big stepping stone for any rising idol, even someone like Mizuki has done this at one point, being the twelth generation. As she is a big fan of Pon-Pon Crepes, Aoi definitely would like the chance to apply for this role if it ever came up.
Suddenly they hear a sound coming from her Aikatsu Phone, signaling that Aoi has got a message from the KiraKiratter Network. This surprises Ichigo since she never heard of it before, and Aoi points out it's various uses before offering to set one up for her too.
The following day, Ichigo comes across an audition she is instantly attracted to and signs up for it. Aoi agrees to join her, but by the time she finds her phone it is time for class so they head over.
In class it is announced that they will be holding auditions for the Pon-Pon Crepe. Aoi is instantly filled with glee and takes the chance to do this, and Ichigo decides to try too. But she realizes that it's the same day as the Audition she already signed up for, so there's no way for them to both apply for the same audition, nor can they show up to support each other. However they decide it isn't a big deal, and when class ends they put something up on their KiraKiratter Accounts to let the Fans know.
Ichigo admits that she doesn't seem to understand why the KiraKiratter is so popular yet until Aoi reveals all of the comments that she's received from fans. She also mentions that Ichigo has gotten some too, including one from her friend Oota. Even if they cannot see the fans in person it feels good to be given the support. With that they decide to get some practice in and train until evening.
Aoi and Ichigo greet Ran and sit with her the next day, but she is quick to scold them for the way they address her before they start to eat. Ichigo asks Ran if she uses the KiraKiratter, but she does not feel the need to use it and prefers to be face-to-face with the fans. She changes the subject by informing them her plans of going out for the Pon-Pon Crepe role and Aoi reveals her intentions of doing so too.
After lunch Aoi expresses concern over Ran attending the Auditions but Ichigo gives her some support, causing Aoi to mention that it is usually the other way around. They go on to resume training for their respective auditions and before bed, Aoi decides to gather information with the use of KiraKiratter in hopes of gaining encouragement.
The next day, a shocked Ichigo learns of Aoi's plans to practice on the Balance Beam. Aoi explains that the first ever Pon-Pon Crepe Girl Kirara Kisaragi did this training, so she feels like she should too. She has Ichigo hop up onto the beam first but she is quick to fall off, then as Aoi tries, she too falls off, but makes it halfway across. She refuses to give up though, so they move onto a new activity consisting of walking on a chalk line while holding two, full buckets of water. In the middle of Ichigo's attempt, Aoi sees new replies on KiraKiratter and begins to check them.
During Lunch Ichigo happens to notice that Aoi is barely touching her food. Instead she uses the spare time to look up more info and decides that she should look into some muscle training.
Later in the day, Ichigo resumes her own practice of walking while she balances books on her head. But she happens to get a message from Oota on KiraKiratter and returns to her Dorm Room after a bit to see Aoi in the middle of Aroma Therapy. She has also bought some strange items to decorate the room with and explains their properties of encouraging better spirits. Ichigo decides not to pay them any mind until later that night after Aoi leaves the room.
The next day, Ichigo sees that Aoi is still relying on advice and information from Kirakiratter. She takes off not to longer after, somewhat concerned over how distant Aoi has been lately. But Aoi has no idea what Ichigo's problem is, until Naoto comes by and tells her about her strange behavior lately. He questions it before handing her a set of Rare Coord Cards and leaves.
During the Audition wait, Aoi looks at her number for it and begins to realize how rude she's been acting lately. She didn't even bother to wish Ichigo luck and quickly tries to use KiraKiratter to send her a message, fearing she may be angry with her when she does not respond. But in due time she does, explaining that since she was riding the bus she didn't realize she got any messages. Both girls take this moment to apologize as Ran's turn for the Audition is announced.
Although Ichigo encourages her, Aoi is still nervous for her turn. Seeing that Ran scored the top out of all the contestants has her even more anxious, and soon she panics until she hears Ichigo at the door and turns to find her. Ichigo runs up to Aoi and claims that she could not speak her true feelings over KiraKiratter, so she had to come, and since she was able to go through her audition for Vivid Girl early, she headed right over to give Aoi support.
With that said, the woman announces that it's now Aoi's turn. She changes into the Rare Coord set Naoto gave to her and she gets on stage to perform to "Prism Spiral".
After the audition ends, Ichigo congratulates Aoi on a job well done before it's revealed that she is the winner. The girls are very happy to learn this and Ran even congratulates Aoi for doing so well. Ichigo expresses sadness that she didn't get to see Ran's rare cards, but Ran informs her that it isn't about using them when people tell you to, but when you want to, instead.
Later that night the girls are in bed going over their Kirakiratter messages. They suddenly get a brand new one that is very mysterious, but they take it as a good sign realizing that it was meant for them and they go to sleep.
