Hello, I’m Akatsukin, and I’m not part of PAS or Chyuu. In fact, I wasn’t even going to be working on this show, and k3 only asked me to look at the songs as a TLC. I didn’t even know what in the heck this anime would be about, or even that it existed until a few days before the first episode. But the instant I started watching, I knew before we even reached the end of the prologue that Revue Starlight would be special. I felt it with my Aikatsu instinct that this would join the ranks of the very best idol shows, even without having any idols!
I love watching mysteries unfold as girls cooperate and compete to reach for the top. I love their powerful personalities, and the unbreakable web of relationships that formed between them. Not a single episode disappointed me, and over and over again my expectations were blown away. Helping to create these subs and discussing the depth beneath each line in the script every week was a blessing and an honor. Starlight was by and far my favorite show of the season, and I hope you all enjoyed watching it as much as I did. Just as dreams are reborn endlessly, both stage girls and fansubbers can be remade time and time again. See you on the next stage.
K3, checking in! Aka’s already wrapped up the post, but I feel I should fill you in on our plans going forward. First, I’m honestly just as surprised as you guys that, somehow, while Chyuu and PAS have a tendency to stall projects, the two of us combined finished episode after episode, week after week, all without ever being an episode behind. We’ll see you around the end of October for the first BD special followed a bit after by the rest of the first BD box, with any luck. I have no eta on the TV batch but hopefully it’ll be within the next few weeks.
