Flower-Blooming Aurora Princess (花咲くオーロラプリンセス Hanasaku Ōrora Purinsesu) is the 68th episode of Aikatsu! TV Anime series and the 18th episode of it's "Second Season" (2年目(セカンドシーズン) lit. Second-Year). The episode aired on February 6, 2014 and marks Maria Himesato's official debut.


The popular long-running show "Idol Princesses"  is going to have Maria Himesato as their next guest and Aurora Fantasy's top twin designers, Green Grass is designing a Premium Rare Constellation dress especially for her. In the midst of all the commotion, Maria states that she has something to tell Green Grass in concerns of her new dress.


On television right now is a show called Full Exposure: Idol Princesses, which Ichigo, Aoi, and Ran are watching. The woman announces that it is the shows 20th anniversary and explains that for today they have gone to the Kitaoji estate to see Sakura. They watch as the show is finishing up, with Sakura showing the audience all of her koi fish. On screen, the preview for the next idol to appear is revealed as Maria Himesato. While the girls have seen her, none of them have gotten to meet her yet and are looking forward to it.

A week later at Dream Academy, Ki and Seira have just sat down for lunch. But before they can start eating, Tiara comes by to ask them if they had seen Maria anywhere. She has a recording for the Idol princesses program and she can't find her.

Suddenly, she spots her painting Sora's nails. Sora compliments her for how well she knows cosmetics, as do Seira and Ki when they approach her to look at the nail polish work. Seira then asks her if she could do hers, to which Maria agrees and suddenly begins to think about something. Only to be snapped out of it as Tiara reminds her of her work.

She is about to say something, but Ki interrupts by mentioning how Sakura was on it previously. Tiara explains how Aurora Fantasy's designer, Green Grass will be designing a special Constellation Dress for Maria today. This makes Sora and the others begin to wonder what it would look like. With that, Maria admits that she wishes to have a specific detail put into the dress, but Tiara thinks it may be too late since it's the day she's supposed to get it. However, Ki informs them that Green Grass has a habit of piling new ideas into her dresses until the last second. Sora also suggests that Maria go and tell her, and this excites Tiara.

She goes on to mention that she has an interview herself later on, about Dream Academy's idols. They then ask Maria about her idea, which is very simple, daisies. She shows them a picture of the daisies and mentions how much she loves them. The flowerbeds from back at home are special to her, but Tiara doesn't think any daisies are actually in bloom yet.

It's then Ki and Seira get an idea and they take Maria to visit Raichi. He is excited to get to see so many idols, but asks why Sora didn't come. But they aren't given much time to answer and Raichi calls Aoi to inform her, Ichigo, and Ran about the trio from Dream Academy being there. After she hangs up they run right over!

Back at the bento shop/Hoshimiya home, Ringo informs Maria about the daisies she has been growing inside, due to the cold weather. She gives Maria one, who apologizes for taking one of the flowers. But Ringo is happy she enjoys it so much and even allows her to take some more if she would like. Raichi then uses this chance to take a picture of Maria with the flower for his Aikatsu paper. She agrees and poses for him, but just as he takes it Ichigo comes in at that time. He seems disappointed, but he believes it to be a rare shot anyway.

As Aoi excitedly greets Maria, Ran asks Seira and Ki what brings the trio there. They explain that Maria wanted a daisy, which they remembered seeing at the shop earlier when they picked up their lunches. This makes Ichigo happy and Ki admits that they eat it all the time. Maria admits she had never heard of a seaweed bento and she claims it sounds like fun. So Ichigo prepares one for her to try and Aoi compliments her response to it. As Maria continues to eat the girls mention how they could envision her on a mountain and Aoi reveals her home is a mansion on top of some mountains.

During her interview, Tiara is busily discussing Maria. She personally scouted her after a photo shoot one of the students had up in the mountains. The weather was very nice and she noticed a girl milking some cows. The girl wondered what she as doing and seeing how thirsty Tiara looked, she ran down to bring her a drink. Tiara had been taken by her behavior and cuteness, which made her realize Maria would be perfect for the academy. At first Maria was confused, but she thought it sounded interesting so she was quick to agree!

Tiara was so sure that Maria would become a brilliant idol, so she just had to have her join. The interview ends as she promises to get Maria even more into the spotlight.

After she finishes the bento, Maria thanks Ringo for how well it tasted. Aoi recalls that she has to start her filming now, but Maria mentions that she wants to go elsewhere first, to tell someone something important. It's then Sora arrives with Sakura. She apologizes for keeping them waiting and explains that she knew Sakura could help her locate Green Grass after she called and didn't get an answer from them. Sakura feels bad for not getting her wish to them and they point out that her shoot takes place soon. If she doesn't hurry then she'll be late.

Suddenly, Maria's family helicopter appears, the Princess One. The girls, Raichi, and Ringo are all surprised by the amazing sight and they wish her luck with her work. But Maria tells them that even if she can't get to Green Grass herself, she really wanted to get her message to them. Sora tells her to go head and promises to get the message to Green Grass with Sakura's help. But before Maria leaves, she invites the other girls to come along for the trip.

Upon arrival, the six girls watch the helicopter take off. Then Ichigo begins to call, trying to make an echo while Ki spots the cows. Maria introduce them to Elizabeth the third, and she mentions how she had been born and raised here. As a little girl, Maria often found herself wondering what the world was like, from beyond the mountains. Then when she met Tiara, she became an idol. She was so happy that she was offered such an amazing experience, and she wishes to use this as a way to reflect her love for both idoling and the mountain land she grew up in. Which was why her request was so important. She then makes a wish for her request to reach Green Grass.

Meanwhile, the film crew is beginning to worry because the dress hasn't showed up yet. It's getting late in the day and they are running out of time. Maria grows worried and attempts to call out to Sora by echoing her voice. After a moment it seems to work, as Sora calls out to Maria. The girls were able to hear it and they look to see the helicopter flying in using Princess Two. Sora arrives and delivers the dress to them, along with the message that Green Grass wished for her to get. She shows Maria the video, where they thank her for the flower and apologizes for not being there to see her in person. But they wish for her to accept the dress and hopes she likes it. Maria is very excited to see the dress and compares it to the flowers she loves so much before echoing a thank you in the mountains.

With that, Maria changes into the dress and performs to "Aurora Princess".

Later on at Dream Academy, Tiara has watched the performance while the girls are outside looking at all the comments everyone has said about Maria and her premium dress. She thanks the group for their help, then gets up while saying how interesting idols are.
