The Glittering Aquarius Happy☆Idol Fes 2nd DAY!
Happy☆Idol Fes 1st DAY! (ハッピィ☆アイドルフェス 1st DAY!) is the 72nd episode of Aikatsu! TV Anime series and the 22nd episode of it's "Second Season" (2年目(セカンドシーズン) lit. Second-Year). The episode aired on March 6, 2014.


Starlight Academy and Dream Academy's conjoined festivals, the "Star-Dream・Festival & Carnival" has finally begun! The first day is Dream Academy with Seira Otoshiro as their headliner. Seira, who will give nothing more than her best, realizes something important with the help of Ichigo.


Ki introduces her role as the committee chair for the Dream Academy Carnival. Everyone cheers with excitement while Seira comments on how leaderly she's become since their Cool Angels audition. Ki pumps everyone full of excitement and they share a cheer.

She then runs to Seira as the meeting disbands and she tells her that as the headliner she has to put on a great performance. She suggests that they check the stage again, and Seira promises that everyone will have the time of their lives!

Later on, a man is delivering the exciting news about the upcoming event. He explains that it will be a little competition to see which of the two schools electrify the audience more and claims the future of the idol world may even be decided with this.

At Dream Academy, Seira has just finished her performance. She feels great, while Ki agrees. Raichi approaches to bring them their bento for lunch and they apologize for making him come this way out to deliver it. But he doesn't feel upset at all, since he's been dying to finally see the inside of Dream Academy. He comments on how different it looks in comparison to Starlight Academy, then reveals his special Press Pass for the events tomorrow, as he and Noel will be covering them.

He then brings up that Seira will be a headliner, which is different then Ichigo's performance because she will be doing it alone, and not with her friends like she is. This surprises them because they thought she would want the attention and light for herself, and they call her to find out if it's true or not. Ichigo confirms that it is though, claiming that it would be more fun this way, and she also thinks the audience would enjoy it more too!

In the designers room, Sora is busy working on an outfit while making conversation with Palm. She is excited too, and hopes that a lot of people will come to look at the clothing.

Elsewhere, Maria is gathering milk from Elizabeth III to make fresh pudding. She turns to thank Seira for helping out when she isn't preparing for her performance, and Seira claims that it's fine since she really loves pudding and they make it a lot at home too. As Maria decides to get some more milk, Seira thinks back to when Tiara informed her of the wonderful news. Seira was surprised, but found herself joyous instead. She thought about how hard she would need to work, and how everything was resting on her shoulders. She has to lay everything on the line, but now she's been thinking about what Ichigo told her earlier...

Eventually the day for the event comes. As the announcer is speaking he happens to catch Ichigo with Aoi, Ran, and Otome discussing their plans on what they want to do. The four then notices they're on TV and greet the audience watching.

Because the carnival is taking place, the normally off-limits Academy is open to everyone. Orihime and Johnny also happen to be there, and a bunch of his fangirls happen to spot him. They greet him and ask for autographs once he responds back, but while he comments on how popular he is there, only to turn and notice that Orihime has gone missing!

Orihime meets up with Tiara and she thanks her for stopping by today. They discuss the carnival and how much fun everyone is having, as well as giving everyone experience and ideas to open up to new things. Tiara takes her to the producer classroom inside the school, which Orihime comments is very different then from Starlight Academy because they don't have those courses. Tiara also mentions that they have some students who straddle the line between something like designing or producing and being an idol, like Sora and Ki. So they make sure to let everyone have the freedom to do what they want, which is probably what makes Dream Academy so popular in such little time.

Back outside, Raichi is taking pictures of everything with Noel. She runs off and he is forced to chase after her.

Otome is going over the scheduling when she spots Maria coming over with the pudding and herb tea she made for her and explains that she made it for her, since she always seems to be busy with work. Otome explains that it's true, as the Starlight Queen. She tries it and is quick to complement how relaxing it is.

Inside, at the Special Display Corner Entrance is Palm. Leading to the display area full of wonderful dresses and outfits. After Ran compliments the clothing, Sora expresses that she thinks Ran would look good in her Bohemian Sky brand, and Ran happens to spot some food and drink sitting nearby. Sora had made Ehomaki, despite it being out of season now, because sometimes she gets the urge to make it. Someone dressed as Ebipon suddenly runs into the room, explaining that a hair has come loose, but Sora can easily sew it back into place and fix it. However... Ran's attraction to the mascot suddenly bewilders Sora...

At the Executive Committee Headquarters, a student comes to inform Ki that they have run out of balloons. But Ki is quick to inform her that they have extra in the preparation room, so the girl runs off after thanking her. Aoi comes by to greet her, and explains that she has been doing a great role as the leader of the Cool Angels, and also this event. Ki isn't very sure she's leader like yet, but she is trying her best to help everyone!

Elsewhere, Seira has taken Ichigo to a special spot at Dream Academy that she hasn't seen yet. Ichigo is happy that they can have their festival together, and while this is a competition, she thinks they are all friends through Aikatsu. Seira struggles to understand until Ichigo explains it, and she then uses her guitar to play a cord, loud enough for everyone around to hear it.

The news crew run by and he asks Seira about the guitar riff she had just let out. She asks to borrow his microphone and announces to everyone that she has something she wants them all to hear. She asks Ki, Sora, and Maria to join her performance, because they are her loved friends and they give everything their all. The three girls all accept, while everyone gladly approves of the idea. Noel is somewhat surprised by the turn of events, and is more surprised to find Raichi crying!

Later on, before the performance, the four girls stand in the hallway. They share a few words before going to change and appear on stage, where they perform to "Happy Crescendo".

After the performance, the four stand on stage where everyone cheers and claps. The announcer ends the events and tells everyone to head to Starlight Academy the following day. The four go backstage for a moment to relax and they all comment on how much fun they had before sharing a cheer.

Outside, the two headmistresses talk to each other while Johnny shows up. While Raichi and Noel are deciding where to meet up the following morning. Raichi has the timetable Otome made and he informs Noel that she wont be appearing on stage at all tomorrow, this surprises her and they begin to wonder what is going on with her...
