The Showtime of Dreams (夢のショータイム) is the 128th episode of Aikatsu! TV anime series and the 27th episode of its "3rd Season" (3年目(サードシーズン) lit. "Third Year"). The episode aired on April 9, 2015.


Known as the "Dancing Lightning", the idol who is great at dancing: Rin Kurosawa has already received her first stage performance offer despite being a new idol. Hoping to show everyone her skills she attempts to obtain the Premium Rare Dress from Dance Fusion. However, Johnny-sensei has become anxious upon realizing he will be visiting his old partner.


Akari and Rin have just finished training for the day. As they towel off, Rin expresses her delight in being trained under Johnny-sensei and claims that all aspiring dancers look up to him. He is happy to hear this as she starts going crazy over his well-known pose. Rin goes on to thank Akari for joining in her lesson and Akari compliments her talented dancing. Johnny tells Rin to always keep dancing until she no longer can, and to show everyone on stage this passion.

It's then Naoto and Orihime join them in the room. She has come to speak to Rin about a job offer involving the huge event approaching entitled Super Dance World. They want to have Rin dance for the show and Akari tells her to make sure her performance counts, then comments on how she will need an outfit. She asks Rin if she has a favorite brand and after she answers "Dance Fusion", she reveals a recent rumor announcing that the first Premium outfit will be coming out soon. After Akari points out that it is still fairly new, Orihime reveals that the top designer was Johnny's partner in the past, a man named Sunny.

Outside, taking another break, Akari and Rin discuss Johnny and Sunny's partnership in the past. Rin reveals that they had been the first performance she saw when she was five, after her interest in street dancing had come. It was so exciting and everyone was blown away by their dancing, and she claims that it is because of them that she likes dancing so much now.

As the girls head to the Cafeteria, they finish their discussion as Akari claims she can understand why Rin had so much fun. Then she voices how she wished she could have seen them dance together, while Rin agrees. They are joined by Yotsuba, who reveals to the girls that back when he was an idol, he had taken lessons from them. Rin claims she is jealous and he continues on by saying he had no idea that Sunny quit being a dancer to focus on designing. However, their sullen mood only stays for a moment until he points out that because Sunny was so stylish, he's bound to have some amazing outfits in mind.

The girls are joined by Sumire and Madoka, and they resume discussion on the Premium Outfit. Rin is planning to get it no matter what and while Sumire looks up the brand, she gets into a quick rant over how amazing Sunny is. From the fact he is a designer to the fact that he understands how easily the clothing needs to be for the idol to move in. After she calms herself down, the girls share a laugh before Akari points out what it takes for a girl to obtain the Premium Dress. Madoka points out that it isn't easy, but Rin is dedicated to obtaining it.

Elsewhere, Johnny-sensei has been hanging up his wet laundry. He stops to compliment that Akari's weather report was right, then observes his track suit as it dries. He thinks back to his time dancing with Sunny and is joined by the girls, sitting down with them to talk. He thinks it would be perfect for Rin, but when the girls ask to know more about Sunny. Before he says much, Rin claims that Johnny is simply a stage name, and Akari is left shocked when it turns out it is the truth - however he refuses to tell her his true name, since it's a secret.

Rin then asks to meet Sunny, and Johnny admits that he hasn't seem him in years. He thinks back to the past when their dancing unit came to an end, when Sunny revealed he wished to quit dancing in order to become a dancer. At first surprised, Johnny could see that Sunny had made up his mind and promises to raise idols fit to wear his outfits, while Sunny promises to make outfits suitable for dancers. With that, they say goodbye as Sunny takes off, with Johnny wishing him luck.

Rin suddenly interrupts to proclaim that she will become this idol. She will light up the stage with his clothing and mentions her desire to see them dance again; which resonates within both Akari and Johnny-sensei.

Later the duo head to where the design studio is. Rin hesitates before approaching the door, but her anxiety gets the better of her and she trips, slamming her hand on the doorbell. After a voice begins to speak, she is too nervous to say anything so Akari steps in. She introduces themselves and reveals they come from Starlight Academy and Sunny invites them in.

The girls step into the office and are greeted by Sunny and together they all sit down to have some tea and donuts that the girls brought along. They start the discussion by bringing up Yotsuba and how he has become a chef now, then he compliments the donut before teasingly commenting on how he has put on a bit of weight since he quit dancing. The girls awkwardly respond in hopes of not offending him and he gets up to show them that he can still dance pretty good though. They watch with amazement and as soon as Akari comments on how well he danced, he thanks her, using the term "honey", which catches Akari's attention since it reminded her of Johnny. He seems curious by this and teasingly asks about him still using this despite being a teacher.

It's then Rin approaches him and starts to dance. He claims she's pretty-good, then asks why she came today. After Rin reveals it was for the dress he decides she can have it once she shows him her dance. Rin agrees and she goes off to change clothing, then she dances for Akari and Sunny, who seem to be both impressed. After she finishes, Sunny gets up to reveal his Premium Dress, the Soul Marionette. He changes the outfit into a set of cards for Rin and hands them over with words of encouragement. Rin promises she will do her best, but she asks that Sunny and Johnny reunite and dance on stage again. It would mean a lot to her and he admits that while their paths will cross, it does not mean they will get on the same road again. His path is the designers path, while Johnny's will be to teach idols. Although they may get together again, they will not be dancing together again.

Later on, Johnny asks Rin to stop with her dancing. She is surprised by this and he comments on how out of sorts she seems to be. Rin apologizes and he asks her to let him know if something is bothering her. She asks him why he and Sunny wont be dancing together again and tells him how much she wants them to be together again. Johnny claims that they are still a team, even if they do not follow the same paths anymore. He asks Rin to think things over because he is sure she can get an answer and he sends her off.

As Rin makes her way through the dormitory, she thinks over his words of friendship and teams. However, she hasn't been able to think of an answer yet. She stops upon hearing Akari in the room practicing her weather report with Sumire, Hinaki, and Juri. She watches from the doorway as the girls discuss their own plans and what-not. She then thinks about how supportive and friendly they are being together and runs in to announce she finally understands what Johnny told her. She points out to the four girls how they are so different and yet remain great friends, and Akari admits they felt the same way in the past.

She tells Rin to chase after her dream and the following day she runs back to visit Sunny. She reveals her dreams to him and he tells her the same words that Johnny told her sometime prior. This causes them both to laugh and eventually the performance approaches. In the back, Rin speaks before running up to change into her new Premium Dress. She then appears on stage to perform to "MY SHOW TIME!".

While standing in the main hall of the building, Johnny and Sunny approach each other to discuss how they believe their dreams have seemed to come true. Sunny claims that this is only the star though, as this was simply chapter one. So they must continue to walk down the road. It's then he comments on Johnny's track suit and hands over a surprise, a brand new track suit. Johnny is very happy about this and he quickly puts it on to show them, and while he happily shows it off, the girls watch from a distance.
