I'm not too up to date on that, but I think they've already announced that like a week or 2 ago.

Looks like we got a case of following the competition and it looks better than Pri-chan.

PriPara's replacement is Kiratto PriChan, announced just the day before yesterday.

Pretty All Friends is something we don't know much about. Now it seems unlikely that it's a TV series, but if it is, it's probably something pointless like All Star Selection.

Aikatsu Friends! looks a bit safe, but I suppose the duos have great yuri potential.

Judging by the cover no more Yume and the co...which kinda sux because this last arc wasnt really that great and was kinda hoping after it would be over it could step up its game again and be as good as it was befor this latest arc. So yeh anyway really a shame because it still had bunch of potential which seem to go to waste, guess they will try their luck with a complete new cast hopefully it wont dissapoint even more...

Yeah it will be sad not having Aria back, seriously Aikatsu Stars has all of the best girls compared to Idol Time Pripara which has only a few (but at least Yui is a great main female protagonist and there's a lot of chemistry between her and Laala).

Now we need someone *coughFunicough* to pick it up. It's a long shot, but I'd like to have hope it'll happen.

I don't want any American company to pick it up. Judging by how Pretty Cure was butchered, they wouldn't do this series justice at all.

Judging by the name, I hope they have more unit focus. I was kind of sad that there where basically no units in Aikatsu Stars. Only thing that really came close was Ako and Kirara as double muses.

Ugh i still need to get back to Pripara dropped it at around ep50 where that new blond girl joined from the country kinda lost interest at that point once i feel like it ill pick it up again perhaps just didn't have that many characters that you would like to follow and cheer on as aikatsu has...

Sorry to burst your bubble, but it's very unlikely to get licensed, unless if there's plans to launch the arcade game here. It operates on a "watch the show, then play the arcade game" model, so the licensor would much rather wait for someone to come at them and license the whole franchise, than for someone to license just the show, while the other stuff sits there.

Remember when the first series streamed on Daisuki, only for it to eventually get taken down? It's very likely that someone at the licensor was like "There's no need for this to stream in North America if the arcade game isn't available there as well!" That same situation shouldn't happen again.
