GOGO! Ichigo Cheer Corps (GOGO！いちご応援隊) is the 112th episode of Aikatsu! TV anime series or the 11th episode of the "3rd Season" (
Ichigo's special live, the "Great Ichigo Starmiya Festival" has been announced and the excitement is spreading around the Aikatsu community. Meanwhile, in the midst of preparation, an excited Akari handles promotion.
Akari and Sumire sit down to watch the press conference for Ichigo, in which she will be announcing her solo live event coming up. There with her are Orihime, and Ran and Aoi acting as Ichigo's producers to answer questions and provide information for others. They watch as everyone discusses why they chose this name for the event, and what Ichigo wishes to achieve during it. After they shut off the program, Akari voices that she would like to help out but she is unsure of how to do so. To help her feel better Sumire offers to help out too.
The girls meet with Hinaki in the Cafeteria for breakfast and sit down. Sumire has already explained to Hinaki what is going on while they waited for Akari, so Hinaki asks her how she managed to get Ichigo to let her help out. Akari admits that she ambushed Ichigo, Aoi, and Ran when they were returning to the dorms last night and after she asked, Ichigo agreed. To keep the mood, Hinaki decides to reveal some hot facts she has recently learned in preparation for the event. These being that this is Ichigo's first time holding a big event by herself, Ran and Aoi are her producers, and it will be held at Starrise Stadium, where Ichigo watched Mizuki perform for the very first time.
She then reveals she has at least twenty more, but she wants to wait until after they eat breakfast. With that Sumire asks how the performance planning is going so far, but Akari reveals that they really haven't gotten anywhere just yet. Hinaki admits that this is a common tactic in the idoling world, to make sure they hype the concert and boost ticket sales. Akari isn't even sure what she will be helping out with yet, but she suddenly receives a text from Aoi asking her to spare some time so that they can discuss the event.
Akari quickly runs to find Aoi and greets her and Ran. She sees that they have been working on a logo. They discuss including a little Ichigo on the poster and use a doll for an example, then send this idea to the designers so that they can incorporate it into the poster. With that they begin to discuss what Akari can do to help. They want her to work on promotion, like publicity and advertising, to make it really exciting. They ask her to try to think up some ideas and Ran suggests that she can ask Hinaki and Sumire for some tips.
In their dorm room, Akari goes over what happened and both girls agree to help out. But when they do not have any ideas, Hinaki asks Akari what she thinks may be important for publicity. Akari points out that it needs to be fun, easy to recognize at first glance, and the impact needs to be strong. But now they need some specifics and Akari is quickly inspired and they get to work making some giant shapes.
Soon the first publicity event comes along and the five girls meet outside of the van waiting for them. Aoi explains that Ichigo ran back to grab her Aikatsu Phone and tease her until she returns. The trio watch as Aoi, Ichigo, and Ran interact with each other and compliment this before they all step onto the Van.
There Aoi goes over the scedule with them all, explaining that they have interviews and advertising to handle. First up is a live, very short segment on a program. She warns Ichigo to focus on what she says, to avoid screwing up due to this, and to assure them that she can handle it, Ichigo practices speaking. Ran then asks what Akari, Sumire, and Hinaki will be doing and Aoi admits that she doesn't necessarily know yet, since they haven't told her. Akari reaches nearby and takes out a giant bag and hands it to Ran while she explains that she wishes for her to join them. Ran takes the giant strawberry out of the bag and watches as Sumire and Hinaki put their hats on before voicing displeasure behind it.
On location the girls walk by and start to greet everyone working there. They walk onto the stage, where the two hosts are after being introduced. There it is revealed that Aoi was also given the giant strawberry hat. The hosts asks how people can pre-order tickets for the event and Ichigo directs their attention over to Akari, Sumire, and Hinaki to reveal this information.
Akari reveals the number everyone can call but she is flustered after it turns out she held it upside down. They discuss how charming Akari is before pointing out how Ran is wearing the hat, which surprises her since she did not think it looked so nice.
Eventually Akari, Hinaki, and Sumire return to the van and discuss how Akari fumbled with the number card. She is hoping that nobody really paid it any mind and isn't too worried over it since nobody seemed angry. Sumire goes along to mention how she liked to see how well Soleil worked together, then voices how she hopes to do that some day with Hinaki and Akari too. Hinaki is sure of it though, and soon they are joined by Ichigo, Aoi, and Ran. Then they take off for their next event, which is at a Studio for a few various meetings. Hinaki point out how common these are with idols as well, while Ran explains how this is set up, to ensure that they can meet up with a bunch of people in a small amount of time by staying in one place.
The girls are surprised to see Ichigo, Aoi, and Ran split up here, and Aoi explains to them that while they may often be together for most of the time, they also have their own activities to focus on. She tells them about something that frequently goes on between her and Ichigo before she decides to discuss the rest of their plans. Ichigo will be holding a Guerrila Live Performance soon and she asks if she can leave the opening up to them instead, so when they agree she tells them to just take things easy until they are ready. Then she takes off for her own meeting.
In this time Ichigo has a photo shoot before taking place in an interview, while Ran discusses a coord set and Aoi holds a meeting. As the trio watch this, they comment on how tense the atmosphere is, but they can feel how much everyone wants this event to succeed. The girls also discuss how they were unable to tell that Soleil is ever apart due to how close they seem to be. Akari then states that they need to step things up a bit.
Later on they head to the performance area and inside of the tent, Aoi discusses how important this is for their promotional campaign. Everyone has put their strawberry caps back on and they go out for a talk session with the host. The woman greets everyone and they take turns introducing each other and reveal the event by showing a large screen with the logo. They notice a decent amount of attention from the passerby's, including a few film crews.
However the girls are caught off guard as the many crew members try to interview them and they have no idea what to say. Ran, Aoi, and Ichigo watch from the back and they offer to go on stage to help the girls, but Ichigo tells them to wait a moment.
Akari tries to think over what the man asked them while Hinaki and Sumire try to find a satisfying answer. Akari reveals that they honestly have no idea yet, but she believes that the entire event will be amazing because of how great Ichigo, Aoi, and Ran are. Soleil may be best friends but they are apart way more than they are together, and despite this they always shine brightly because each girl can bring her talents and allow them to shine.
With that, Akari, Sumire, and Hinaki run off of the stage and Ichigo comes out to congratulate how well they did. She is very excited to reveal herself to the audience, as they know they aren't expecting it, and Ichigo brings up which song she wishes to perform. She surprises Akari, by choosing the one she, Sumire, and Hinaki often sing to and voices how much it inspires her. She's been planning on using it for something important and thinks this is it, so she runs back and changes into her brand new school coord. Then, Ichigo appears on stage and performs "Lets Aikatsu".
After the performance, the girls discuss how wonderful they thought it was. Ichigo asks Akari about how her day went and Akari mentions how she feels inspired to find her own specialty because she is sure if she can shine doing her thing, then it will help them reach greater heights as a group. Ichigo promises that she will give her event her all and she gives encouragement to Akari, Sumire, and Hinaki.
