Aikatsu Stars! (アイカツスターズ! Aikatsu Sutāzu!) is an arcade collectible card game in Bandai's Data Carddass line of machines, which was launched in May 2016. It is the successor to the Aikatsu! series of arcade games. The game revolves around using collectible cards featuring various clothes to help aspiring idols pass auditions. An television anime adaptation by BN Pictures began airing on TV Tokyo from April 7, 2016.


The series features a new protagonist named Yume Nijino. Yume aims to become a top idol, and she enrolls in the Yotsuboshi Gakuen (Four Stars Academy). This academy has a special group called the S4, who are the top four active idols in the school. Yume and the other first-year students aim to become a part of the S4.




A television anime series produced by BN Pictures began airing on TV Tokyo from April 7, 2016, succeeding the original Aikatsu! anime series in its initial timeslot. The opening themes are "Start Line!" (スタートライン! Sutāto Rain!) by Sena and Rie from Aikatsu☆Stars and "1, 2, Sing for You!" by Sena, Ria, Miki and Kana from Aikatsu☆Stars, while the ending themes are "Episode Solo" by Ruka, Nanase, Kana, and Miho from Aikatsu☆Stars and "So Beautiful Story" by Ruka and Sena from Aikatsu☆Stars.


The series contains a variety of theme songs and insert songs. Many of the songs are composed and arranged by monaca, and performed by members of the Japanese idol group Aikatsu☆Stars who provide the singing voices for the characters. Some of the insert songs are the theme songs but sung by different members from the opening or closing. The songs have been compiled into several albums.
