Hello New World (ハローニューワールド) is the 133th episode of Aikatsu! TV anime series and the 32nd episode of its "3rd Season" (
Madoka Amahane, student of Starlight School has received an offer to attend and perform in the event "Rookie Idol Super Live". Madoka would like to wear a Premium Rare dress from the brand Angely Sugar, and starts to ask her grandmother for help...
One late morning, Akari awakens to see that it is four am. She spots Sumire, who has gotten dressed and was heading out for work. The girls exchange greetings and Akari reaches into the nearby shelf to take out a container of cough drops that she got for Sumire. She accepts the gift and takes off after they wish each other luck with their work for the day.
A few hours later at TV TKY, Akari is in the middle of her Weather program and announces what the current temperature is. She reveals that it is sunny with some clouds to appear throughout the day, then ends the program. She then heads over to the news staff to take part in their morning entertainment news, having come to discuss the recent popularity of units due to being a student of Starlight Academy. She gives supportive words regarding the units between her friends. They ask if she will have her own unit and Akari confirms that it is a plan of hers at some point.
After school she makes a call to Sumire to discuss that morning show segment she was part of and how she used it to promote Dancing Diva a little. Sumire thanks her before Akari asks what she is currently up to, and tells her that she's on a music show at the time. She then asks to confide in Akari by asking if she has a few minutes to spare. After Akari confirms that she does, Sumire voices her concern over missing so much school lately - due to all of her work with the unit. She has been worrying over Madoka, since she was her mentor and hasn't been able to see very much of her since she and Rin formed Dancing Diva. Akari offers to take care of Madoka in Sumire's absence and claims that it works out, since Sumire has been tending to Rin as her unit mate. Sumire thanks Akari, then promises to talk to her later before hanging up, having to return to work.
While Akari walks around, trying to determine what she can do to help Madoka, she happens to spot her after she calls out to her. To her surprise, Madoka is able to read exactly what she was thinking and calls her sharp. Madoka claims Akari is just really easy to read and the girls start to walk together. They discuss Sumire's call and Akari tells Madoka that she can always come to her in times of need - causing Madoka to say she is very much like a Senpai, which makes Akari very happy.
It's then Orihime shows up, having come to see Madoka. A job offer for her has come up, involving a broadcast station that is sponsoring a Super Live event for new idols. She chose Madoka to represent Starlight Academy and is excited to see what kind of performance all of her hard work so far has led to. Madoka is awestruck with the news, while Akari congratulates her and the girls head over to the Cafeteria. For a moment, Akari is taken in by Madoka's cuteness but snaps herself out of it to tell her that she will need to do some preparation work for the New Idol Super Live. Madoka agrees and reveals to Akari that this will be the first time she's ever stood on the Performance Hall stage. Akari knew that and she tells her that with training she will do really good. She also tells Madoka that it is important to pick out an outfit to wear and asks if she has anything in mind. Madoka would like to wear an Angely Sugar Premium Rare, so Akari tells her that the best thing to do is to make the request as early as possible. Madoka, while understanding, tells Akari that she is unable to ask her grandmother.
Akari invites Madoka back to her dorm room to continue their discussion. For a moment, Madoka finds herself distracted by Akari's stuffed animal, then by the poster of Ichigo in the Angely Sugar dress. She sits down and begins to tell Akari why she is unable to ask her grandma for a dress of her own, stating that since she was little she's always watched her. Her interest in idoling first came when she caught sight of a beautiful dress her grandmother made, and she could only think about wearing one of the outfits when she grew up. She announced her desire to wear the dress to Asuka, and she told her that Madoka will have to be an idol then, since those are what she makes outfits for. Madoka agrees right away to this, and from that day she only dreamed of becoming an idol. When Asuka realized that she kindly encouraged Madoka to follow the dream - but she was also strict and saw another side of Asuka she never knew about before. She would spend all of her time pent up in her atelier and she fixated on the tiniest of details and would work on nothing else until the dress was perfect.
One day she told Madoka why perfection meant so much to her, saying that with each new idol she gets, the more resolve the girl has. Whether it be trying to handle being refused, as well as shouldering the responsibilities should she accept. So for each idol she pushes past her limits and bounds, laying her life on the line to make each dress more perfect than the last. Madoka refuses to ask to wear one of the dresses because she lacks the self-confidence as an idol to do it. Akari insists that Madoka has plenty though, and with that they start to train. Akari wants to help her build up her confidence to ask Asuka for a dress. Some days they would be visited by Sumire, and eventually the day of the performance was approaching.
One day Madoka calls a break when Akari brings her a drink. She mentions that the event is coming and she claims that Madoka has improved largely in such a short time. Madoka is very happy but she still isn't sure if it enough, since she believes Akari is the only reason she was able to keep going and improve, even a little bit. To make her feel better, Akari mentions to Madoka that she lacks confidence too, even up until now. But this is why she trains so hard, with the resolve to improve. She is sure that Mizuki and Ichigo knew they weren't perfect either, and that was why they worked so hard to shine so brightly. Nobody starts off thinking they are as good as they actually are, and because she has seen Madoka's efforts she believes she is ready to pay her grandmother a visit.
The girls head out to the forest towards Angely Mountain. They approach a split road with both signs holding the Angely Sugar logo. However, one path is bright and pretty, with flowers adorning it while the other path is dark and messy. Madoka chooses the latter path, so they run forward and come to Angely Mountain. Madoka begins to climb while she thinks about what Asuka told her in the past. She refuses to give up and climbs while Akari observes from afar. After they reach the top, Madoka thanks Akari and they are greeted by the Gardener. He brings the girls in for some tea and cookies and comments that he didn't expect Madoka to climb the mountain like she did.
They are joined by Asuka and Madoka tells her of the request, stating how much she loves the dresses, and why she watched her grandmother so much. That was what made her realize that she couldn't just wear them with only half a resolve; she loves them a lot and trained very hard, and she knows that she isn't entirely there, but she asks to be given a chance. Asuka is quick to agree, much to her surprise. She voices that she has seen how much Madoka desired to wear the dresses, but when day she suddenly stopped asking, even after being accepted into Starlight Academy. She is glad to see that there is a reason for it, and Madoka says she wanted to wait until she had the confidence for them. Asuka agrees, then mentions that she also hadn't expected her to climb the mountain. She thinks back to when Madoka was born, and of the time they spent together and tells her that she showed her something new. She was what encouraged her to continue making the dresses and now she hopes to inspire Madoka to see something new while in this dress. She hands Madoka a coord set and Madoka promises that she will make it shine right next to her.
With everything settled, Akari and Madoka decide to leave. Madoka thanks Akari for all of her help, saying that she has done a lot for her that day, and now she is ready for the Event.
As her turn approaches, Madoka stands in back while observing her card set. She changes and appears on stage, singing to "Hello New World".
Having watched her performance, Asuka thanks Madoka for being able to show her another new world. Madoka runs up to Akari and embraces her as thanks for helping her. Akari also thanks Madoka and the girls smile to each other.
