Aikatsu derives from Aidoru Katsudou (Idol Activity) and is a story about girls aiming to become idols while putting a lot of effort and friendship into their aikatsu. It is originally an arcade collectible card game in Bandai’s Data Carddass line. Players collect cards, which help their idols to pass auditions, by dressing up. The first anime adaptation came out in October 2012. The manga series is being serialized in Shogakukan’s magazine Ciao. Four Nintendo 3DS games, light novels, three movies and other video games have been published so far.
