Akari Ōzora (大空あかり) is one of the main protagonists in the Aikatsu on Parade! series and was the main protagonist of the third and fourth season of the Aikatsu! series. She is a student of Starlight School. Akari is a cute-type idol whose primary brand is Dreamy Crown.

Bio

Appearance

Akari has magenta eyes and honey brown hair. Her hair is in a layered bob with a bit pulled up into a curled side ponytail by a pink bow.

During her early appearances, Akari had long hair and wore a pink bow, due to the fact that she was a huge fan of Ichigo.

By Episode 96, Akari's hair remains layered, but has grown to where it's medium length.

At the start of Season 4, Akari starts wearing a section of her hair in a braid that travels across the top of her head and no longer wears a side ponytail. Her hair has also gotten noticeably wavier.

Personality

At first, Akari was a clumsy, somewhat nervous, yet cheerful girl. She appears to cry and get frustrated easily but is determined nonetheless. Akari is also quite resilient and is able to quickly recover from her mistakes.

By season three, Akari has grown into someone who wants to shine with her own light. She has become a hard-working and an even more determined idol who no longer aspires to be just like Ichigo. She is still energetic and cheerful but can be prone to comedic antics from time to time, much like her mentor and predecessor.

Background

Akari first became a fan of Ichigo when she was in the fourth grade. She had come across the Christmas Special television program (Episode 12) and was amazed at how Ichigo helped out her friends and brought smiles to people faces. Desiring to be like that, she mustered up the courage to help a girl struggling on the uneven beams on her school's playground and after that, began down her road of fandom.

It was revealed in Episode 101 that Akari attended Ichigo's unveiling concert for the Mermaid Pisces Coord and was moved by her perormance. She decided that she wanted to be an idol and auditioned for Starlight, but didn't even come close to making the cut her first time around.

Relationships

Akari's mother.
Ichigo is Akari's mentor. Akari is a huge fan of Ichigo and at first she wanted to be like her to the point of imitating her appearance and several of her performance habits. She highly admires Ichigo and in return, Ichigo sees a light in her and guides her down her idol path. Ichigo also provides advice for Akari throughout the first half of Season 3, and when she is leaving for Soleil's national tour Akari tells her she will become the Starlight Queen. At the end of Season 4, Akari is crowned the new Starlight Queen by Ichigo.

Quotes

"The best thing about Ichigo-chan? Without a doubt, that would be... How she taught me to dream!"

– Akari answering Aoi's question in Episode 76.

"Let's do our best in another day of Aikatsu!."

– Akari's introduction words in the Season 3 PV.

"I wanted to become an idol, a Starlight Queen who could bring people smiles. Even off the stage, I wanted to Aikatsu that would make everyone smile. I wanted to become an idol who could look for fun and inspiring things together with you. This all comes from how big a crybaby I was when I was younger as well as seeing Ichigo-chan do her best for the sake of her friend. The sight of Ichigo-chan bringing a smile to her friend's face was incredibly awesome! If, like her, I've become able to ease someone's unpleasant feelings or bring them a smile, then that's all I could ask for. I'll work harder and harder – even if something bad happens, even harder – always doing my best!"

– Akari after being crowned Starlight Queen in Episode 177.

"Our Aikatsu will continue forever and ever. Dreams aren't meant for dreaming, they're meant to be fulfilled."

– Akari to Raki in Episode 25
