The Memories are in the Future (思い出は未来の中に) is the 50th episode of Aikatsu! TV anime series and the final episode of its "1st Season" (1年目(サードシーズン) lit. "First Year"). The episode aired on September 26, 2013.


The finals of the Starlight Queen Cup arrive at last! Will Mizuki become the top for three consecutive years or does somebody take the position? Just there, Ichigo surprises everyone with her determination to complete her own goal.


Aoi sits by herself while thinking about Ichigo. Kaede feels bad, but they happen to hear Ichigo and Ran coming. Ran tells her that she didn't actually have to wait ten minutes before coming and complains about making her wait outside while they sit down. Ichigo is about to eat, but she insists that Aoi has some too, and while she feels sad she accepts it anyway. She also gives a bite to Ran, then begins to eat it herself. Otome and Sakura run in to reveal they, along with Yurika has also brought her a reward of parfait. But thankfully Kaede has brought in her own present, giant squid sushi.

As everyone discusses it, Ichigo notices that Aoi has been pretty quiet. Kaede reveals that she incidentally told Aoi what happened, because she didn't know that Ichigo didn't say anything yet. Ichigo decides to use this time to reveal her plans to everyone, which shocks them to the point that Otome begins to cry. Aoi attempts to calm her by saying they should be excited for how unpredictable Ichigo can be, rather than sad, and Otome apologizes for the interruption. Ichigo explains that she plans to head out to America, but she will keep an eye on everyone's Aikatsu, stating that its because of them that she feels that she must do this. She needs to become more passionate about her own Aikatsu and thought of all the exciting things Kaede told her about America, and she thinks she could find what she is searching for there. She also mentions that she will be leaving right after the Starlight Queen Cup and that she has already informed Orihime.

The girls may be sad, but they promise to all continue to support her. Although Aoi still seems sad, she promises to keep being there for her anyway. Afterwards Ichigo goes home to inform her mother and Raichi on her plans and while they support her too, Raichi can't help but tease her anyway. Late that night, Ringo discusses Ichigo's plans with Orihime and while both of them encourage her also. Though Ringo is a little uneasy about it and knows she will worry about her regardless.

Come the next day, everyone comes back to prepare for the final Starlight Queen Cup round against Mizuki. Before they do however, Mizuki reveals that she is really happy to have met Ichigo, and Ichigo agrees with her. Then they change into their coords and perform and sing to "Moonlight Destiny".

Afterwards, everyone impatiently awaits the result of the performance. It is revealed that the winner is Mizuki. While Ichigo has lost, she accepts it gratefully and Mizuki is asked to give a few words. She thanks everyone and voices how happy she is to have won again, then thanks her fans and also Ichigo, before asking her to give her own speech. Ichigo admits to being frustrated by the loss, but she was happy as the girls realize they all gained their next mark of Mastery. Mizuki then reveals her own surprise to Ichigo in secret, telling her to stay for a final performance as a reward.

Ichigo agrees and changes with Aoi and Ran, where they go out to before "Calendar Girl" one final time together.

After the performance they run to find Ichigo has packed mostly everything by now. Aoi feels worse than before, but she helps Ichigo pack while observing a picture of their first day as idols. After finishing, the girls leave to find everyone there waiting for them, but Ichigo is forced to rush upon realizing just how late she is already.

As they head to the air port, Ichigo tries to console Aoi, who still remains sad and has cried many times since they begun to pack. She gets her passport and Ran warns Aoi not to hold in her feelings any longer - meanwhile attempting to cover her own but struggling greatly. After the others return they all embrace before Aoi hands Ichigo a letter, warning her not to open it until she is in a pinch. Kaede has also got her a gift, a parachute.

Ichigo takes her leave as everyone says their farewells. They watch the plane take off and they head back to school to find Orihime giving everyone an announcement revealing that while Ichigo has left for overseas, there is one more person who also left: Mizuki.

Nobody understands, but she tells them that Mizuki has chose to follow her own path as well.
