Story

When the three members of Luminas began their Luminas☆Japan Tour, their very first location was the Land of the North, Hokkaido. In this land filled with the presence of nature, an encounter was made with the song and dance lovers, Nono Daichi and Lisa Shirakaba. When their encounter begins, right here, right now opens the curtains of the beginning of the two idols' Aikatsu!

Summary

Luminas is on their way to the very first stop of their tour in Hokkaido. Through narrative its explained that their tour is lasting three months and they will be traveling all over the country in their self-designed Aikatsu Wagon.

As the girls stare out of the window, Akari opens it to yell out to everyone. Hinaki points out that they aren't in the mountains, but they agree on being as excited as she is. Hinaki goes on to point out Akari's hairstyle has changed, and Akari explains the reasoning behind it. Turning on television the girls watch a program discussing their tour plans, with footage from the press conference the girls held being shown. In it they explains their encounter theme to everyone and how special it is, and how much they are looking forward to having fun with everyone and growing as idols. A man from the crowd points out their aforementioned goals, and Akari explains how excited they are to look forward to meeting idols all around the country. The program ends and Akari returns to look out the window, as she wonders who they will be meeting.

Nearby in a small town are two girls, who comment on Akari's hair change as they were also watching the program. One girl approaches the television when her friend points out they need to leave, then the other girl calls the trio winsome. The other agrees and they excitedly remark on wanting to meet Luminas while visiting their home.

At Starlight School, Johnny-sensei explains how much energy all of the idols have. Orihime goes over how everyone has been advancing over the time, and taking their daily lessons even more seriously than before. Naoto points out that it probably because of Luminas and their sights they have set for themselves, with Johnny in agreement. He calls it inspirational and Orihime wishes the girls luck with their goals.

As this is going on, Luminas arrives to their destination.

The two girls from earlier are sorting the vast amount of potato when one suddenly sees something causing her shock. Lisa, noticing this asks Nono what happened, and when Nono points out the Aikatsu Wagon in the distance she expresses surprise. Nono is encouraged to work even harder and quicker now, so that they can go and see them.

Stepping out of their van, Akari decides they should warm up with some dance practice. They remain in their school uniforms and dance until they call a break, realizing they were being watched. The towns people compliment the girls, with someone recognizing Akari as the weather girl, and Hinaki compliments her as the man explains that this is the first time they met real idols. One of the women next to him brings up that this isn't true, since they have Nono and Lisa there and he takes back his words. Knowing they might get to meet some idols, Akari happily listens as the woman explains to them who Nono and Lisa are.

As this is going on the duo peddle their way through the fields.

She mentions that they are in their second year of middle school and are longtime friends. Nono's family also owns a potato farm that Lisa often stops over to help with. During their time working, the girls love to sing songs and they are very talented. Whenever the two girls sing, they can't help but become filled with happiness as their aches and pains seem to vanish, so they keep working strongly. This encourages Luminas to meet the girls, and suddenly they hear the sound of a bike coming to a quick halt.

Nono observes the van up close and Lisa turns to spot the towns people and Luminas. She shyly points them out to Nono, who takes a moment to register this and excitedly approaches, too overwhelmed to even speak until she can force herself and Lisa joins her. She quietly greets them, Nono is brimming to the top with excitement over getting to meet them and tries to amp up Lisa a bit, who is very withdrawn in comparison. Nono continues on to say how "winsome" the girls are, and uses the word "mightily" to describe them. The girls are a bit confused with this wording until Lisa explains its a Hokkaido thing, then translates it to mean "very", and the elderly lady explains that "mightily-winsome" means they are very cute.

With that, Nono asks to shake their hands and quickly proceeds to do so as Lisa stands to the side, still a bit nervous. Akari approaches her and asks to shake hands, surprising Lisa as she extends her hand to her. She also shakes hands with Hinaki and Sumire as Nono compliments her for doing well. Nono then brings up the venue and asks if they will be performing there and excitedly tells Lisa they need to come and watch the performance. Akari invites them to see a behind-the-scenes look at it and they eagerly accept the offer.

Inside of the concert hall a man expresses surprise to see the duo with Luminas, until Nono explains that they offere to show them around. Walking around the place Nono and Lisa explain knowing the man, since city council meetings usually take place there, along with some other things. The girls show them to the dressing room, where a plaque was set up just for the girls. The girls admire their shiny, sparkling Aikatsu cards that the trio show them, hypnotized by their beauty as Hinaki explains how coordination works. Nono points out that the only cards they have are Library Cards, but Lisa claims they also have a point card for the convenience store. She goes on to say that she has heard of how vital Aikatsu Cards are, but Nono doesn't understand their phrase "To idols, cards are life". The trio explain how a performance is largely based on the coords put together by the performers. The cards are a large, powerful support.

In the fitting room Akari explains how the Aikatsu Machine works as Lisa walks up for a closer look, still seeming to be in a daze over everything she's seen thus far. Hinaki explains how changing works, and performances, causing Nono to become further excited as they claim a very big part of performing is the idols determination. Idol Activities are far more passionate than what a fan witnesses on stage.

The tour ends and the girls retire to the Daichi Household, and in Nono's bedroom, she and Lisa discuss their day. Nono points out that they are much further away from them, and they begin to look at an old autographed picure of them singing when they were little girls. Lisa brings up their ages and how the girls are about the same age as they are currently. Aikatsu is really amazing; in saying this, Nono sees how deep in thought Lisa has become. 

At their hotel, Akari and the girls have gone to bed. But Akari is unable to sleep as she thinks about Nono and Lisa.

The next day, the girls head out to town before rehearsal. As they walk around the streets, Akari compliments the bookshop and cafe nearby and they pose for a picture. They step inside to see walls of books, along with a reading area and counter- followed by Lisa. Akari greets her and asks if Lisa came to look for something specific, but Lisa remarks that it isn't anything special. The books here never change, but she loves to come and read because she feels relaxed. There are plenty things she doesn't know about the world, among these books she has never read, and when she looks at them she gets really excited. She compares the feeling to the day before when she is joined by Nono.

The five girls sit down with some ice cream to chat for a bit, with Akari brings up the residents speaking highly about the duo's singing. Nono agrees but Lisa says its not really singing, but the others disagree. Nono explains that the very first time they did it was when Lisa first came to help out, and everyone enjoys their singing during breaks. Lisa's mom even gave them singing lessons, as she's a piano teacher. They would enter various karaoke contests and festival performances whenever they could as they grew, and that is why they are known as idols around town. Lisa claims they aren't really anything like Luminas, but they disagree because the girls make everyone so happy, and they claim that this is the first step to idoling. This makes Nono and Lisa feel good about their hobby and the trio realize the time. The five take off for the performance hall.

At the changing area, the girls share some quick words and change into their brand new unit coord. They appear on stage and perform "Let's Aikatsu".

After the performance, Nono and Lisa happily watch and comment on how wonderful it was. To her surprise, Lisa suddenly voices her desire to try their own Aikatsu.
