My Dear Idol! (マイ ディア アイドル!) is the 86th episode of Aikatsu! TV anime series and the 36th episode of its "2nd Season" (2年目(セカンドシーズン) lit. "Second Year"). The episode aired on June 12, 2014.


A special event is coming up for a specific amount of idols on the recent popularity charts. Raichi wants to do everything in his power to see to it that Aoi is one of them.


Everyone sits in the meeting room awaiting the arrival of both Orihime and Tiara to come in and announce something. They're all excited and soon the conference begins. After the previous event well so well, they have decided to hold something special called the Aikatsu8 Election. Johnny explains that it's up to the fans to vote for their favorite idols to become part of Aikatsu8, which will only consist of the top eight idols. They tell them that any idol is available to choose from and whenever it is decided, a special concert will be held. Until then each Idol is allowed to run her own PR to win support from the fans, and they will also accept fan ideas too.

As this is going on, an excited Raichi watches the announcement while cooking with Ringo. Hearing that fans will gave impute makes him very excited since it means he can help one specific idol in mind.

Later on, the girls go over their possible PR ideas. Ichigo decides that she wants to have others rockclimb with her, while Ran decides to give modeling lessons, Seira wants to teach everyone to play the guitar, and Ki plans to host a special quiz event.

It's then they're joined by Raichi and Noel. They had just came from and Aikatsu meeting and the girls mention that they are going over fan PR ideas. Noel is surprised, and Raichi asks Ran if she chose her own yet. He is a little disappointed, but Noel is quick to mention her support of both Ichigo and Seira. Aoi then points out that even if she is the one being pushed, she would support Ichigo and Ran anyway, which all of the girls are able to agree with by choosing their close friends.

That evening everyone at the Hoshimiya household begins to eat dinner. Ichigo is happy to be home since it's been a while, but Raichi quickly finishes and leaves for his room. He is joined by Ichigo sometime after Ringo wonders if Ichigo will have a place to sleep, and when she comes to the bedroom, Ichigo is surprised to see that Raichi has overtaken it with many idol magazines. He apologizes and quickly begins to clean it off while Ichigo observes them, along with some cooking and soccer books. She asks Raichi why he has them but he doesn't answer her, instead he goes back to his desk.

When Ichigo suddenly mentions how much Raichi loves Aoi, he is quick to defute it by saying he just happens to admire Aoi a lot because of how much more she knows about idols. Everytime he sees Aoi work hard it inspires him to work twice as hard too, but he still supports Ichigo too. She then goes to sleep while he continues on working.

The next morning Ichigo greets her brother, but to her surprise she finds him missing. She comes into the kitchen to help Ringo prepare the foods for the day, but she finds it already prepared. Ringo explains that Raichi did it earlier, but Ichigo recalls that the last time they spoke he wasn't at all confident in his cooking abilities. Ringo mentions that he practiced every day since that conversation and he even helps think up new menu items, along with writing the Aikatsu newspaper, and even playing soccer. He's even been making the team schedules.

Later on in the day Ichigo returns to school to find idol magazines all over Aoi's bed. She suddenly announces that she got the perfect idea for her PR from someone with the pen name of Doremifaso Lychee Star-san and shows it to Ichigo. Ichigo is supportive over it, but as the girls head over to meet with this person she can't help but wonder where she's heard of the name before.

At the meeting place, Ichigo, Aoi, Ran, Yurika, and Otome await for Lychee Star-san to arrive. It's then Raichi shows up, which surprises a few, but not all five of them. Ran explains where Raichi got his pen name from, and Ichigo realizes that this had been what Raichi was working on the previous night. He goes on to announce his plans of having Aoi run the entire way to the performance building to let the fans see the real Aoi and all of her appeal. Aoi loves the idea because of how simple it is, and because of how much importance it has in the idol world. Raichi also wants Ichigo and Ran to run with her for support, while he and his soccer team will join them. He then announces that he wants Yurika and Otome to handle the MCing at the concert hall.

The following evening, Ringo happens to find Raichi to still be awake. She is surprised and he mentions that he was rather nervous for the upcoming day and was hoping some "image training" would aid him for it. Ringo understands but she worries that because of working in the shop today, and also having soccer practice, he may be tired by now. He confirms that she is right, but she wishes him a good evening and takes off anyway.

The following day Yurika and Otome begin their MCing. They announce what is going on and how the PR event will begin soon before switching the filming part to Ichigo, Aoi, and Ran at the school entrance. As the girls announce that they are ready, Johnny fires a shot and the trio begin to run, followed with the others.

As everyone runs, Yurika and Otome begin to tell everyone about Aoi, including trivia and random information related to her. Eventually they come to a steep hill and Raichi realizes how tired he is suddenly. He scolds himself for staying up so late and he feels bad that Aoi is doing so well. Ichigo happens to spot this and she tells him that he should rest but Raichi really doesn't want to. But just before he is ready to quit, he is suddenly picked up by a few of his teammates, who want to get him to the finish line with the girls.

Soon the three idols and soccer players reach the end of the line. Aoi crosses the goal and thanks everyone for cheering her on while Raichi thanks his soccer teammates for helping him. He feels bad for slowing Aoi down, but she tells him that he really did a lot to help her. She feels very happy to have all of these fans cheering for her, and it's all because of Raichi that she got it. It's then she tells him to make sure he sees the performance and with that, the five girls run backstage to change. They appear on stage and perform to "Fashion Check!".

Afterwards, Raichi and Ichigo speak to each other. He mentions again how much supporting Aoi encourages him to keep going with his own things. He tells Ichigo to do her best while he keeps supporting Aoi, and when Ichigo tells him that she will be supporting him too, Aoi also tells him that she agrees while Ichigo and Ran watch.
