Spring Bouquet (春のブーケ) is the 123rd episode of Aikatsu! TV anime series and the 22nd episode of its "3rd Season" (
As Tsubasa is busily trying to come up with his next Premium Dress, Akari is busy with preparing for a Live Event and tries to speak to him in hopes of getting the dress.
Tsubasa scribbles out the recent fashion he spent a while designing before realizing it's already morning. He gets up to prepare some tea and turns on the television to watch Akari's weather program. She and Ozorotter reveals that while Spring is approaching it's still pretty chilly out and suggests that everyone dress warmly. With that the segment comes to an end.
Akari happens to spot Ozorotter and approaches him to thank him for helping her earlier when she messed up. She happens to spot the flowerbed he is observing. She comments on how they will be opening very soon before she hears on the News that Tsubasa will be announcing a brand new Premium Dress.
The girls excitedly chat about the new dress while wondering what it may look like. Akari shows that everyone else is excited too before Hinaki goes over the Romance Dresses they have already seen; like Sumire's Snow White coord, Juri's Cinderella coord, and her own Nutcracker coord. Juri mentions that with the current trend happens to be fairy-tale outfits and Hinaki recalls the Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty set's Dreamy Crown has already made. Akari tries to think of what this next dress will be based on but stops upon getting a message from Orihime, asking her to come to the office.
Akari arrives to find Johnny-sensei and Orihime inside waiting for her. They mention the call they just got and Orihime reveals that there will be a Live event from the TV Channel the weather and news happens to run on. They want Akari to partake in it to represent her Oozora Weather program. They also want her to put on a concert for it, and Orihime even plans to show up to watch.
Outside, Akari thinks about how nice it would be if she could wear the new dress. She knows that the new Premium Outfits can only be aquired if the Designer approves of the Idol, but just because she has gotten two from Tsubasa doesn't mean she may get this next one. But she plans on working very hard to at least try to get it.
With that she gets right to work training with Sumire. She also uses to the time to focus on practicing for her weather program. Unknown to her, Ichigo happens to be watching.
Tsubasa has been observing all of his fairytale related books in search of any idea to help with this Spring Dress, but so far he hasn't had any luck since none of the stories fit. He wonders if Amahane goes through this whenever she does her work too, then he goes to pay her a visit with some coffee. He finds her busy at work and observes her amazing drawings. He compliments how wonderful they are, although she feels they are far from being as good as her normal work. She discusses how important it is for an Idol to work on her own whenever she is on stage because whether she likes it or not she doesn't have others helping her. She needs to create a dress that is fit for such a stage.
She observes a picture of Ichigo and comments that she focuses on her whenever she designs so that she can capture the energy that Ichigo posseses. This causes Tsubasa to realize that maybe Ichigo may be good inspirtation as well, given the passionate speech Amahane was able to give. He wants to one day be able to design a dress for her as well, so he plans on having her wear this brand new one.
At the Television Station Akari goes over their plans for this Live Event. She makes sure to take notes and they go over what they plan to call her segment for it. She comments on it and everyone voices how they feel about her doing this, because they are sure she will do a great job. They also discuss how popular Oozora Weather has been because of her, but she claims it is because she has Ozorotter helping her. They insist otherwise though, since this is still just the beginning for her, so they need to focus on just making it exciting.
Akari rides the train while thinking about the dress she should wear. As it comes to the Station she gets up just in time to avoid missing her stop and happens to spot Tsubasa. She calls to him from across the room and she announces her event to him. She tries to tell him what she was hoping to say, but the door closes before she is able to so he doesn't get to hear her. As his train leaves he comments on how she hasn't changed since he first met her and spots a sign for the news and weather program. Seeing Akari makes him realize that he has to become motivated like she has and stick to his goals.
That evening Akari lays in bed. She tries to sleep but finds it too difficult, so Sumire tries to talk to her. Akari voices that she feels like she needs to get more by explaining that she needs to improve her work so that she can brighten everyone's day, and make them smile no matter what the weather. But she isn't exactly sure how to do that and winds up falling asleep before she answers Sumire. So with that Sumire gives her a vote of confidence and goes to sleep as well.
The next morning Ichigo is preparing to leave when Akari stops her. She comments on how early Akari is up and she reveals that she will be doing some film work outside of the city. Akari thinks this will be fun and she comments on how chilly the weather is, even though Spring is just right around the corner. Ichigo comments on how this is a nice thing on it's own however and compares it to getting to eat strawberry parfaits, or wearing cute spring-clothing. Getting to wait for it is just as fun as experiencing it, and in this moment Akari realizes something and runs off.
Akari runs home, much to her parents surprise since she has her weather program. She runs up to her bedroom and pulls out her shelf in search of something while her parents curiously watch her. After her father runs from the room Akari's mother gets an idea and she goes to fetch it before Akari leaves again for her show.
Akari runs to the location and happens to find Ozorotter watering some flowers. She observes them to see that they have bloomed before it spots the book in her hands and questions it. She is unable to explain though, since they need to get ready for her Weather Program. They start and she reveals that the forecast is sunny and the cold front is passing by now. She then reveals what she brought with her, the story she adored as a little girl: Thumbelina. As a child she would search every tulip she could find in search of Thumbelina, then she shows the tulips that Ozorotter has been tending to.
In this time Tsubasa suddenly gets an idea. He finds his inspiration and begins to draw it out. After he finishes he makes his way to Angely Mountain and takes the elevator up to visit Amahane. But before he can go, Ichigo suddenly runs into the elevator and greets him.
They step into her office and he reveals that he has finished. He wanted her to be the first one to see it and Amahane asks if Ichigo could wait a little bit so that she can take a quick look. Ichigo doesn't mind at all, but she admits to wanting to see the brand new dress, so they let her stay. Tsubasa doesn't mind so he unveils the beautiful dress, explaining that he got the inspiration from Thumbelina. They compliment on pretty it is and he explains where he got his idea. Ichigo compares what he did to Akari by bringing up that she is immature as an idol but she puts everything she can into Aikatsu. She always tries to make everyone surrounding her cheery and upon hearing this Tsubasa realizes something.
In the Cafeteria the girls discuss Akari's concert the following day. They ask her if she is ready but she doesn't really sound convincing. She hasn't been able to decide what to wear, but just then Hinaki joins the girls to reveal the News Segment that is currently on. It is revealed that the Premium Dress has been completed, which surprises the girls. They don't have many details but Tsubasa comments on how spring-oriented the dress is. In hearing this, Akari decides that she just has to go to ask Tsubasa if she can wear it.
She runs to the train station but sadly realizes she has just missed it. As she stands there however, she spots Tsubasa and they approach each other to talk. He tells her to wait and runs across the station to hand over the cards. Akari is very excited to accept them and he comments that it was because of her he was able to finish it. He wishes her luck with her performance and Akari promises that she will do her best. When the event comes along, Akari's concert is announced to everyone. She stands behind the stage and speaks to her cards before putting them into the device to change and appear on stage, where she performs to Blooming♡Blooming.
After the performance ends Akari takes off after saying goodbye. She sees Tsubasa, who compliments the concert. She claims the cards helped her a lot and thanks him for his help. Tsubasa points out that a Designer and Idol are like a team, and together they can really help each other keep going. But he takes off while telling her that if she should ever start to falter he probably wont give her anymore dresses. At first Akari is confused, but she smiles and promises to keep giving everything she has.
