Broadcasting day will be changed from the current Thursday to Saturday
After the ten-day countdown on Twitter, tonight at 20:30 (JST), the Aikatsu! franchise's official YouTube channel "AiTube/Aikatsu!Tube" posted a three-minute PV for its new TV series Aikatsu on Parade!, which is set to premiere on TV Tokyo and its affiliates on October 5, 2019. The news was also announced at the "BEST FRIENDS! SPECIAL LIVE ~Thanks OK~" event held at Pacifico Yokohama National Convention Hall in Kanagawa Prefecture today.
According to the clip, Aikatsu on Parade! will have a new protagonist named Raki Kiseki voiced by Rin Aira, who made her voice actress debut by playing Wakaba Harukaze in the ongoing Aikatsu Friends! after becoming the winner of the second Aikatsu Friends! Miracle Audition in 2018.
Raki, who is in the second grade at junior high, has transferred to Star Harmony Academy (Aikatsu Friends!) to become an idol. When she uses the Aikatsu Pass invented by her older sister who is an Aikatsu engineer, a strange thing happens. Many doors suddenly appear, which connect to other Aikatsu! worlds. With the support from the successive Aikatsu idols, Raki starts her idol activities to make her own premium dress.
The broadcasting slot for Aikatsu on Parade! will be changed from the current Aikatsu Friends!'s 18:25 pm on Thursday to 10:30 am on Saturday.
