Little Girl Anime Power Rankings Season 2 – Week 38

I’m still playing around with my schedule after the previous week, and that led to me having some difficulty finding a place to squeeze in doing LGAPR at. That’s about all there is to that story.

Lip tried to calculate how long it will take Fairilu to get out of last place.

Yeah. Let’s not think about it.

Previous Standings

1) Aikatsu Stars! – 311 Points
2) Mahou Tsukai Precure! – 235 Points
3) PriPara – 233 Points
4) Rilu Rilu Fairilu – 189 Points

While the competition for second place is relatively fierce, it’s hard to say that the other two ends are in too much of a position to go anywhere anytime soon.

Weekly Point Distribution

1) Mahou Tsukai Precure! – +9 Points
2) Aikatsu Stars! – +6 Points
3) Rilu Rilu Fairilu – +3 Points
4) PriPara – +1 Point

A Word From the Big Man
I don’t think it was as good as last week, but I’d be willing to say most things at least entertained me this week. But, while mostly everything is great, last place is in the dumpster again though.

Stranger danger.

Stars this weeks shifts gears to the third main character’s first real spotlight episode. Koharu, being Yume’s childhood friend, would probably have made sense as the first character to get hers, but I guess that point is null and void when she’s most likely destined to never have a CG model. I don’t think it was as particularly entertaining as last week, but it made Koharu a bit more lovable if you haven’t already taken a liking to her. It also gave them a ample opportunity to introduce the last of the girls that shows up in the opening and Koharu’s real rival in her department. Yume and Rola already act as rivals as far as stage performances goes, so it’s nice that Koharu has her own competition to reach the peak of modeling. And then there’s Ako. Poor Ako.

Tip: Try hiding the easiest way people can identify you.

Precure this week marks a episode type they probably should have done among all of those Rico-centric episodes previously. It’s kind of hard to call it anything other than a fluff episode, but it was still incredibly enjoyable. The last few scenes of this week remind me why I really fell in love with MahoPri. There are just those scenes in it where they really create that feeling of just how fantastic magic is. And it really just highlights how amazing the MahoPri soundtrack really is. I can’t see the future, but it’s scenes like this that really makes me hope that MahoPri can pull everything together in the end. If it can lead into a great conclusion, then it’s this kind of direction that can make the ending feel like a real ending.

In fact, this episode plot where Mirai’s grandmother gets to re-witness magic in action sounds like the plot of a cheesy family picture. An old woman who ran into a wizard in her youth gets to witness magic again via her granddaughter who just so happens to study magic from the same wizard. I’d watch it.

Why am I not the focus of this episode?

PriPara this week can easily be summed up as being an awful episode outside of the last five minutes or so. On the positive side, it shows that PriPara is still capable of good ideas. On the negative side, it was an awful episode and a carbon copy of what we’ve seen over the past month.

I don’t get it.

Fairilu has been going down the line in talking about the various main four, and Rose just happened to come up this week. And as it turns out, the concepts of love and friendship are a pretty good coupling to go half and half with.

Wrap-Up
I just realized we’re only 10 posts out of 100 editions of LGAPR. How fun.
