Aikatsu : A Popular Card Game for Young Girls and Otaku Men - What is popular in Japan right now!?

Aikatsu : A Popular Card Game for Young Girls and Otaku Men

The whole name for Aikatsu is “Data Carddass Aikatsu”. Aikatsu stands for “Aidoru Katsudou” (Idol Activity).

You can find this Aikatsu Game at arcades in super markets, shopping malls and other shops in Japan. Aikatsu is a collectible card game. You pay 100 yen to buy a card to choose your idol character. Then, you choose one of the auditions you would like your idol to participate in. After you choose your audition, you can choose to buy more cards or use the cards you previously collected to scan. These scanned cards are used to dress your idol with clothes from top to bottom, everything your character will need for the audition! When your character enters their audition, you play a game like the “tap tap” game by pushing yellow, red and green buttons to the music. The better you do in the audition, the higher your score and the closer you will get to becoming a top idol!

This game was released in October, 2012 and Aikatsu has continuously been gaining in popularity among young girls. However, some adult men, aka “Aikatsu Ojisan”, also fall in love with this game. Aikatsu is not only a game but also an anime series. It has also been decided that Aikastu would be made into a movie! Total sales for Aikatsu goods this year is anticipated to be approximately 14 billion yen!

    As a note, the creators behind Aikatsu! have also stated it’s incredibly popular with older women. I don’t know if they said more or equally so as the young girls, but definitely more popular with them than otaku/older men. (Understandable too, given it makes many references to older shoujo and magical girl shows as well as having that distinct, nostalgic but modern air and quality.)
