Ōzora JUMP!! (大空JUMP!!) is the 116th episode of Aikatsu! TV anime series and the 15th episode of its "3rd Season" (
After being tasked with focusing on completing a Resolution before their first year ends, Akari goes out in search of finding one. But will the one she chooses be harder then what she expected?
Akari and Sumire are preparing for their first day of a brand new school semester. Akari is disappointed by the rainy weather, but she perks up after the Weather Forecaster explains that the rain should be finished later in the day.
In Class Johnny-sensei greets everyone and tells them that with three months left before they move onto second year idols, they should concentrate of their New Years resolution. Akari is not very sure what her own is though.
By the time break rolls along, Akari decides that she will make a brand new signature. This causes Hinaki to realize she's never seen either of theirs, so the girls all take turns showing their signatures to each other. Akari makes a very simple one, which surprises them until Hinaki mentions how rare it will be after she makes a brand new one. So she asks for Akari's autograph as Akari mentions that she also wishes for a long-term goal also.
The girls are ready to train and wish to go for a run, but to their disappointment the weather hasn't cleared up yet. For the time being they head into the lesson room to stretch and practice. They discuss resolutions again, causing Akari to realize that she wants to find something that she excels in and can do on her own.
Just then they realize that the weather has indeed cleared up, They see the sun shining outside and head back out there for their run.
They come to a bench and sit down for a break while continuing their discussion. Akari isn't very sure what she is good at though, and Hinaki mentions her own plans of focusing on Variety Shows, like the one she does with Otome. But she sort of wants to go focus on fashion, one of her personal passions as well. Sumire has the idea of focusing on her singing, but Akari still struggles.
As Evening rolls around, Akari sits up at her desk and tries to practice an autograph. She has gone through many copies and isn't particularly happy with any of them. She thinks about her own specialty, and while she likes to sing and act, she doesn't think she's the greatest at them.
Akari heads outside in hopes of clearing her mind, but she is surprised to run into Ichigo. They go to the same spot Ichigo usually traveled to during the evening and Akari begins to discuss her plans of finding her own path. She wants to find her own, special talent, but she has no idea where to start.
Ichigo admits that she never worried over such things, but she encourages Akari and tells her to just trust her feelings and follow whatever she's interested in. Her words perk Akari right up and she compliments Ichigo for always knowing what to say to help her. She leaves for the Dorm after and finds Sumire fast asleep, so quietly she fixes her blanket and goes to bed with the intent of focusing on her plans the next day.
Akari explains to Sumire what Ichigo said while browsing the IdoLook for an Audition. She happens to spot one related to being a Weather Forecaster and Akari quickly decides that she was meant for this one.
They go to Hinaki to pass on the news and she agrees that Akari would be right for the job. They offer to help her practice for the time being, and with three days before the Audition they run right over to one of the training rooms. Sumire prepares the Camera as Akari mentions that she took the time to right down the days Forecast. They begin, but Akari manages to turn her back to them, and point in the wrong location rather quickly.
Akari is a bit crestfallen over how hard this is, considering how easy the pros make it look. Hinaki points out that they have people helping them a little, but this wont make a difference if you're not zoned in. Akari tries once again, this time taking in what Hinaki mentioned and she happens to get in a good, solid practice. She decides to call Training a day, but is unsure of what to do now.
Suddenly Sumire gets an idea and they all head outside, where Juri has managed to get the Giant Fan outside. She mentions finding it in the Academies Giant Device Storage and they recall the one time when it lifted Yurika into the air with her parasol. Which was how Sumire got the idea to begin with. She turns on a hose of water and aims it for the giant fan as Akari tries to act like a Professional Forecaster.
She is quickly blown back as her umbrella flips inside out, but Hinaki thinks this is a good thing since reactions are vital for coverage of weather events. Juri scolds Akari for getting out of Camera Frame, while Sumire decides to turn up the water as Akari walks back over.
The girls head inside to take a break and Sumire apologizes for putting the water too high back there. Akari is happy to have their help though, and they are surprised to see Aoi. She mentions spotting Akari's signature for the Forecast Audition, and to help her, she'd like to introduce Akari to a Weather Forecaster she befriended on one of the sets for a Drama she was working with. Akari is quick to accept her offer and she takes off after Aoi writes down some things for her.
While riding in the Van, Akari watches a video of the Forecaster Aoi mentioned, a woman named Ayaka. Akari is very eager to meet Ayaka and thinks about how Weather Girls are also like Idols in a way.
After arrival she looks for the room Aoi wrote down for her. She steps inside and sees many people, and introduces herself to one of the staff before explaining why she came. The man calls for someone named Kohashi and Akari is very surprised to see her true appearance. She finds many books and papers on her desk and the woman apologizes for how messy her desk is as she hands Akari a drink. Akari mentions that she does not mind however, and Kohashi properly introduces herself.
Akari mentions that this room wasn't anything like what she expected; something very cute and sparkly like the Forecasters look on Television. But behind the scenes, there is apparently a lot one needs to study before they can work as a Forecaster. Kohashi mentions that every day before she does her work, she talks with other people in the room and she tends to her script, so that she can say things apropriately. The Forecast can affect the moods and plans of any viewer, and while Akari agrees with this concept, Kohashi reminds her that the Weather isn't always good news.
While most people like the sunshine and are happy when it doesn't rain, if it did not rain then Farmers would be in real trouble. She compares it to idoling by saying that Idols need to be aware of all the different viewers as they try to connect to them. It is impossible to please everyone, but you can still try if you know what to say. Akari takes to heart what Kohashi says to her and as she leaves, she tells Akari that she can stop by again when she wishes to talk if she would like.
Akari realizes how naive she was, since she never thought about the people watching her perform in that way. Sumire asks her what she plans to do about the Audition now and Akari points out that while she isn't ready to become a Forecaster, it still seems fun and she wants to try anyway. She's going to trust her feelings and follow her path.
When the Audition comes, Akari is seated for the Interview. The man asks her where her interest came from and she admits that while she is still a new idol, she knows that being a Forecaster wont be easy. But she had a gut feeling and wanted to try it out, and now she understands that she can clear her Viewers feelings with her words, and it isn't any different then when she is doing her idoling. The man then asks her what she wants as an idol, and Akari mentions her intentions of helping others enjoy their time and relieve burdens of being lonely or sad, and to make them hopeful. So she plans on studying a lot to brighten everyone's day with her morning Broadcasts. With that she thanks them for the Interview and leaves.
Later on, Hinaki mentions that the Audition news should be posted soon. She gets a message and excitedly announces that she got it. Sumire and Hinaki congratulate her and Akari goes on to put on a special performance. It is announced that she will be hosting a new morning news segment known as Good Morning Watch. She gets out the coord cards she chose for her first performance and changes into them before appearing on stage, where she sings to Du-Du-Wa DO IT!!.
After the performance Akari is introduced by the man who gave the Interview. He explains why she was chosen and she mentions her feelings on this, saying that she will work very hard to brighten everyone's day. A giant poster then appears behind Akari and she is asked to sign it, and with that she introduces everyone to her brand new Signature. Akari then announces that it is time for her brand new program to start.
