The Secret Scent of the Moonlit Girl (月夜のあの娘は秘密の香り) is the 19th episode of Aikatsu! TV anime series and the 19th episode of its "1st Season" (1年目(サードシーズン) lit. "First Year"). The episode aired on February 18, 2013.


Whilst running home late from a job, Ichigo encounters a supposed vampire. This vampire is revealed to be Otome's classmate, Yurika Tōdō, who constantly acts in character. After Ichigo decides to prepare for the same Loli Gothic audition Yurika will be in, she considers taking up her own character. 


Ichigo has an upcoming audition for a very minor role on a well known series. She's pretty nervous, so in hopes of encouraging her, Otome gives her a special charm to give her luck. When they realize the time they take over the cleaning for her since she hadn't finished. 

Meanwhile Orihime and Johnny discuss Ichigo and how well she's been doing. 

Very late in the evening, Ichigo happens to come across a strange girl. She grows nervous while the girl talks about taking her blood, but suddenly she spots the charm Ichigo is wearing and runs off, causing Ichigo to ask herself if the girl was rehearsing. 

The following day in class Ichigo discusses how her job went with the others. She wasn't very happy with how it turned out though, since it didn't sound right to her. Ran asks Ichigo to reenact what she did so that they can see, then they claim that she wasn't being in character. As Otome insists that she likes Ichigo how she is, she remembers her charm and the mentions the incident from the previous night while returning it. Their discussion ends after they hear the bell and Otome is forced to run off to class while Johnny arrives. 

He begins to discuss the new rock concert audition that is being sponsored by Loli Goth. At first it sounds exciting, but everyone begins to feel discouraged when he mentions that Yurika is expected to win. Ichigo asks who Yurika is, and Aoi is able to give her a little bit of information before they go to Otome to speak to her after class, since Yurika is a classmate of hers. While they observe her Ichigo realizes her as the one she ran into and watch as she opens a parasol to cover her from the sunlight. Ichigo questions this and they explain that a Vampire does not like Garlic, or Sunlight, along with Silver. In hearing this Ichigo is able to understand why Yurika ran off. 

During lunch, they continue to observe Yurika as she drinks rose tea. Aoi mentions that vampires only drink rose tea, red wine, and sometimes tomato juice, but they don't eat. While Ichigo is taken by her mysterious nature, Otome mentions how popular Yurika is. The four continue to spy on Yurika until Ichigo decides she wishes to go and say hello to her. She makes an attempt, but Ichigo goes on to mention being the girl she ran into last night and wishes Yurika luck for the upcoming audition, wish she wants to take part in too. Yurika chastises Ichigo for being careless and claims that someone as rude as her would be beheaded before storming off when it begins to get brighter out.

Everyone returns to the Dorm Room while they discuss how her character acting it. Ran points out that while they don't know what about her is real and what isn't, the LoLi GoThiC brand suits her perfectly. Aoi then comments that it is really impressive for Yurika to do this, since Character Acting is a hard talent; but when mastered it is a weapon for idols. So if Ichigo wants to stand a chance against Yurika she would need an even stronger character. They try to think of a new character for Ichigo, and try pirate, werewolf, and a strawberry alien, but they determine that it wont be easy. Ichigo admits not to having anymore ideas so they begin to overlook the Loli Gothic fashions for some help. 

Late that night, Mizuki comes by to speak to Ichigo. Ichigo mentions Yurika to Mizuki, who mentions that she is impressed before taking off, wishing Ichigo luck. 

The following day, they try to figure out how Yurika used to behave before the vampire craze took place. After Ichigo happens to spot Yurika, she tries to speak to her but she is scolded once again. Yurika gets up to leave after Ichigo notices that she is listening to one of Mizuki's songs, and while she is surprised she feels a little closer to Yurika. She goes on to reveal a sudden idea she has gotten for her own Character: Bride of Frankenstein.

This brand new Ichigo is found to be off-putting for everyone, and when she runs into Naoto he questions why she's dressed in such a strange outfit. He also points out that if she's not really enjoying it then her fans wont either.

Later on, Aoi finds Ichigo and runs up to her. They discuss how Aoi's meeting went before they smell something reminiscent of garlic. They spot Yurika near one of the dorms holding a big bowl of garlic noodles and they realize why she never eats at lunch. This is to keep her character, and allows her to order something in private later. 

The following day, the two inform Ran and Otome what they happened to see, and later in the evening Ichigo decides to go out for a run before it gets too late. But when she goes out so far, Ichigo notices smoke coming from one of the rooms. She runs inside to find Yurika tripping as she runs out of her room. Ichigo checks on her and Yurika reveals that her parasol was left in the room. Ichigo runs in, much to her surprise and she grabs it for her, but she is scolded by Naoto for risking her safety. 

Once the fire is put out Naoto checks on the two girls. Yurika reveals that she accidentally knocked down a candle she was busy using for a ritual and because of how badly she feels over it, she invites the other girls into her room for some tea. They are surprised to see how different she looks, and she mentions that while she looks different, she really does adore vampires. Especially the sorrowful romance novels. It's because of them that she began to enjoy vampires, and she quickly apologizes for speaking so much. The others believe she can audition like this but Yurika explains that she cannot. Since she was little she has always loved European dolls and collected a bunch of them to play with and keep her company. But when she entered Starlight Academy, she felt as though she had nothing in comparison to the other girls. That was when she found the Loli Gothic Coords and her vampire character was born soon after. She can't quit something that her fans love of her the most, along with her own love of the character. 

With that thought in mind, Ichigo realizes what she was doing wrong earlier and eventually the day of the audition comes up. The two girls wish each other luck and they change into their desired coords before they appear on stage to perform to "Glass Doll".

Once the audition ends, it's revealed that Yurika won due to how well she showed the brand. While Ichigo lost, the higher ups of Loli Gothic were pretty impressed that she chose her favored brand over theirs and that she could show how much fun she was having in it. It really encouraged them to open up their line a bit more.
