Happy Christmas Tree☆ (ハッピーツリークリスマス☆) is the 114th episode of Aikatsu! TV anime series and the 13th episode of its "3rd Season" (
It's the day of the Starlight Academy Christmas Party and Akari and friends are working hard to make the party a success. Meanwhile, it seems hot idol Juri Kurebayashi wants a tree just like the one Ichigo and friends cut down three years ago...
Johnny has just finished training with Akari, Sumire, and Hinaki, when Orihime comes into the room with Hinaki's brand new premium rare cards. She reads the note Kayoko sent along with it before voicing her own excitement of this performance.
Later on, the girls are finishing the set-up for a tree when Akari thinks about the time Ichigo went and chopped down a huge tree and brought it back to the Academy. Yu's roommate asks why Ichigo had done this and they explain how she did it to help a friend, then Akari recalls how that day, three years ago, was also when she first saw Ichigo perform. Since then she dreamed of becoming an idol, and to find herself here even now still causes her disbelief. It is then Sakura comes into the room and assembles everyone helping out to come into the Cafeteria.
There, she reveals how smooth the work has been going. All they have left is to finish decoration, cooking everything, and the stage preparations. So she asks that for anyone done to go and lend a hand to anyone still working. After they spot the director dressed as a snowman nearby, Akari explains what an "off-pic" is to the audience.
As she and Hinaki are finishing with decor, Sumire and and a few others have been making cakes and other items with Yotsuba. While Hinaki gets the Director to get a close-up of Sumire, Sakura comes in to inform everyone that everyone from the highschool devision will be returning to the school that night. The girls are excited, with Akari hoping that Ichigo and the others will be able to come by for the Christmas Party.
The girls continue to prepare the items for the cake with Yotsuba until everyone else is done. He lets them get to the decorative portion of the cake making when everyone is surprised by Otome; who was lured in by the sweets and asks to lend a hand.
Juri walks into the room and starts to admire the nearby Christmas Tree. She apologizes to Akari for not being able to help, since she has to film the special promotion for Aikatsu Sensei now, but Akari claims it to be alright. As this goes on, Hinaki narrates an introduction for Akari and Juri while the Director films them. Akari asks Juri if she will be returning, and Juri discusses her intention of showing up in time, since she's been waiting for this Party for a long time.
This surprises Akari, so Juri explains how it began back during the middle of her Hiatus. She had to spend the Christmas with her grandparents since her mom and dad had to work. They had gotten her presents and prepared a special dinner, and even made a little bonsai Christmas Tree. She even recieved her New Years present a bit early. Then, three years ago she witnessed Ichigo, Aoi, Ran, and Otome pull the tree back on Television. It deeply touched her, and Akari admits that she felt the exact same way. Before a classmate comes by to tell her that the ride for her showed up, Juri begins to discuss the tree she assumed they would be going to cut down. She is disappointed that she can't be there to help, so she wishes Akari luck before taking off.
This confuses the girls, and Sumire asks what they should do now. Akari voices that she wants to go and cut down a tree, so with that the girls take off, with the Director following them outside. Sumire and Hinaki are concerned, but as they do not wish to leave Akari alone, they see no other option than to come with her.
Akari walks around in search of an Axe when she happens to spot Naoto. She makes an attempt to ask him, but he is able to guess what she wants and hands it to her. He warns Akari to be careful and she promises she will be before they begin to head out of Campus, having changed into warmer clothing. Hinaki begins to ask where they can find the tree, but Akari already knows so she isn't very concerned. The Director shows up with his van and inists on lending a hand to the girls, and in no time he is able to drive them to Akari's destination in mind.
She bursts into Tsubasa's office; to which she is gently scolded, before asking for a favor. She asks him to let her take the tree near his home, as it is the biggest fir tree there, and Tsubasa voices that while he would not mind, Dreamy Crown doesn't own the land. He is unable to help and Akari apologizes for asking him this, but he believes he has another idea.
He calls Asuka, to ask if the girls could take one of her trees, and she sees no harm in it. But she asks them to wait twenty minutes first, so that the filming going on outside can finish. With that the girls leave for Angely Mountain. Sumire reads a fortune when they suddenly stop at a small trail. The Director reveals that the Van cannot take them any further than this, so the girls step off. Akari is quick to begin making her way up, with a tired Sumire and Hinaki, and Director following the energetic Akari.
Suddenly, Akari falls over. She assures them that she is fine and forces herself to stand before she continues. They reach the tree in question but the girls wonder if she can do it or not. She insists that she can do it and quickly starts to axe the tree; with Sumire and Hinaki alternating every few swings. As this is going on, Asuka can hear them from inside.
Eventually the girls begin to saw the other side of the tree and in no time get it down. They wonder how they can get it down the hill, but it suddenly starts to slide down on it's own. Akari chases after it and jumps onto the tree, joined by Sumire, Hinaki, and the Director. With that they steer the tree down the massive hill and make a crash landing. They find that the tree and snow has covered the Van, and the Director is concerned, as it wont fit on or in it, anyway. The girls are joined by Juri's mother, who reveals she was on Angely Mountain and came to lend them a hand.
The party begins, and Ichigo, Aoi, and Ran have arrived. They spot Sakura out in the hallway and she voices her concern, as they should have arrived by now. Upon hearing a helicopter though, they run out to find the girls, Orihime, and Johnny-sensei watching as the tree is being brought in.
Ichigo compliments the tree while the other classmates show up to lend a hand decorating it so that Akari, Sumire, and Hinaki can prepare for their performance. They go to change and arrive on stage to perform with "Hello Winter Love".
With the tree decorated and the performance done, everyone heads back outside to admire the tree. Juri is very happy to see how it turned out before revealing that her mom told her what happened. As others tune in to watch the program, the girls end the episode while wishing everyone a Merry Christmas.
