Spontaneous Skips♪ (おもわずスキップス♪) is the 134th episode of Aikatsu! TV anime series and the 33rd episode of its "3rd Season" (
Seeing how close Sumire Hikami and Rin Kurosawa are, Madoka Amahane thought "A unit that can make each other shine is a wonderful thing" and starts to have a feeling of admiration. What are Madoka's thoughts that lies ahead...?
Rin happens to find Madoka watching her performance from the other day. She is very happy with how it turned out and earns a compliment from Rin, going on to mention Dancing Diva as Sumire joins them. At first this makes Rin worry that she missed their meeting, but Sumire claims that had nothing to do with the visit. She was running early and wanted to apologize to Madoka for being so busy lately, since she was supposed to be her mentor. She compliments Madoka's performance and Madoka thanks her, bringing up that she's been watching a lot of Dancing Diva's performances too. As the girls express their happiness in joining up, they prepare to take off and Madoka comes to the decision she wants to be in a unit too. She runs back to the dorm and practices asking someone to join her.
As this is going on, Akari walks into the Cafeteria to find Hinaki and Juri speaking with Yotsuba, who made a brand new donut specifically for them based on their unit. Juri and Hinaki are excited as he gives them the very first try, and he goes on to explain how difficult it was to make. The girls dig in, but Yotsuba expresses no surprise after they both recoil from the high level of spiciness. Juri apologizes for requesting a donut like this and Yotsuba explains how hard it was to balance the flavors right, but he doesn't want them to feel bad about it because he likes to help- he also prepared some normal donuts in case this would happen.
The girls decide to restart with the design of a unit donut and Akari simply smiles as Madoka joins them. She tells Akari that she has a request, then voices her desire to be in a unit with her, attempting to charm her into agreement, then shyly assuring her its up to her. The girls are impressed by how bold and honest she behaved, and Madoka tells Akari to take her time to decide- only to be surprised when Akari instantly agrees.
The foursome leave the Cafeteria and Juri and Hinaki leave for a photo-shoot. They stop to discuss Akari and Madoka's unit forming and they decide that something must have clicked for the girls in order for them to decide so quickly. Akari suggests that she an Madoka start a strategy meeting and they seperate from Juri and Hinaki. Madoka asks what would be going on in a strategy meeting while they walk, then she begins to skip ahead of Akari, who watches her with amusement.
They head into Akari and Sumire's dorm room and set up a table to discuss unit names; coming up with ideas such as Smileys, cute sky, sky symphony, Sunnys, and MadoPika. Akari stops to question the last one, and Madoka explains that she combined her name, with the "pika" feeling she gets from Akari. But Akari tells her that if Mado is read like "window" it just makes them sound like a cleaning spray. Madoka realizes this and quickly scolds herself for something so silly.
The girls take a break later in the day to discuss of any goals they may have or need to focus on. Akari asks Madoka if she has anything that she would like to prepare, other than lessons. Madoka voices that she would like to learn about Akari, who likes the idea and tells her to set her alarm for 3:50am, much to Madoka's curiosity.
When her phone alarm goes off, Madoka quietly gets out of bed while watching Rin for a moment. She dresses and sleepily makes her way out the door to see Akari, who is waiting for Madoka with one of the vans. Madoka is impressed with how energetic Akari is and she explains that it's because she got used to doing her weather report by now.
On location, Madoka watches from afar while Akari sits with some staff and discuss their plans for the day. The man announces that reports are saying that the day will be chilly, so Akari asks if she should warn the viewers by telling them to dress warm. The man likes this, and tells her that it makes her sound considerate and they prepare to start. Madoka continues to watch from behind everyone else and watches as a man runs up to Akari to hand her another shell while saying they forgot to discuss something. Akari thanks him and her program begins. She explains how the weather will be, then reveals their special announcement before ending the segment.
Akari and Madoka leave for a photo-shoot Akari has. Madoka continues to watch before hearing some school girls across the street. The girls recognize Akari and Madoka and get excited as Madoka greets them in response and waves. Then a group of older women approach and while unable to recognize Madoka, they recognize Akari and greet her. Madoka is happy to see how much attention Akari gets from all of her hard work an once she finishes, Akari signs an autograph for the school girls across the street. Then, before they go, they spot a girl who was hiding nearby. Akari approaches the shy girl and asks if she would like an autograph, then gets a piece of paper from her photographer and signs it for the younger girl. The girl thanks Akari and promises to cherish it, running off after exchange goodbyes. As they make their way back to the van though, Madoka wonders why Akari would agree to be in a unit with her- given her amazing personality and talents.
On their ride back, Akari happens to notice Madoka staring at her. She asks her if something is wrong, but Madoka tells her that she felt like she learned a lot about Akari, and her kindness is what she loves about her the most. Akari thanks Madoka before saying that when she first started Oozora Weather, it was all she could really do. She learned to be much more considerate than she ever was and Madoka compliments her. Akari claims that she can only change because of her friends surrounding her. The people they meet can change the way one acts, and open tomorrow for a new beginning; which is why she agreed to be in a unit with Madoka. At first Madoka questions this, and Akari mentions her desire to treasure their meeting, and seeing a brand new light in the world by being with her.
After they get home, the girls begin to head back when suddenly, Akari watches Madoka. She starts to skip down the pathway and this inspires a unit name, so Akari stops Madoka to reveal her idea. They announce their unit name, Skips to everyone in the office and right away get compliments. Akari explains the idea behind it before Orihime voices her excitement to see how far their unit can go, and where this brand new path may lead them.
Eventually the day of an Inaugural Concert approaches. Akari leaves to buy her and Madoka a few drinks and finds herself in such a good mood that she skips down the hall; just to stop as Sena comments on this. Akari is surprised to see him and approaches to ask if he came to watch. He tells her that he did some, but he also prepared a unit dress for Skips. Akari loves the coords and comments on how cute they are before Sena hands her a pair of Cute-type Aikatsu bracelets. Akari thanks him and she runs back to Madoka, to give her a bracelet and her coord set. Madoka is very touched by Sena's gesture and the girls head into the changing booth. They change into their brand new unit coords and appear on stage, singing to "Hello New World".
After their performance, everyone comments on how cute and great Skips is. Naoto comments that they make a good team, while Jonny and Orihime discuss how much greater Akari has become since she initially began.
Backstage, Madoka compliments their job well done too and Akari tells her that they will spread their wings even further from this point on, which Madoka agrees with.
