I Want to See You, Okinawa (会いたくて、沖縄) is the 158th episode of Aikatsu! TV anime series and the 6th episode of its "4th Season" (
The three members of Luminas are headed for their next destination for their Nationwide Tour: Okinawa! In Okinawa, they met Minami Hateruma who attends Churaumi Beat Academy. Coincidentally, Minami is a friend of Rin Kurosawa, and strongly desires to reunite once again. The land of Starlight which is far far away from Okinawa, can Minami and Rin dance together again...!?
While heading to their next tour location in Okinawa, the girls chat about how different the land is from Tokyo. It's then Akari recalls that a program is starting and turns on the television before them, where the announcer reveals the guests will be a couple of rising idols, Nono and Lisa. He asks them how they feel since making their Idol Debuts and Nono admits that it was shocking when they were chosen, while Lisa assures how happy she is- its hard to believe it isn't a dream. Nono pulls on her cheek to prove to her it isn't, then admits she's done it to herself several times just to make sure, and they share a laugh. Together they share a message to the audience before their time on the show comes to an end.
Arriving at Okinawa, Luminas steps out of their tour van and take a quick tour picture as they admire the shore. But after finishing, they hear a girl nearby and observe her from where they stand. They compare the girl to Rin, and upon hearing this she eagerly calls out to them, much to their shock. The girl runs up the nearby steps to confirm her suspicions of their identities and greets them. They compliment her dancing and she introduces herself as Minami, an idol from a heavily dance influenced school. She recalls that Sumire is in an Idol unit with Rin and asks about it, causing Sumire to ask her if she knows Rin, with Minami confirming she does. She met her at a dance audition in Tokyo, and she really loves Rin's dancing.
She offers to chat about more her if they have some time, and the four stop for some ice cream before having a seat. Sumire expresses disappointment that Rin couldn't join them to see an old friend, but Minami is happy just having this. She claims that it's because of Rin that she continues to dance, with Sumire correctly guessing that Minami is taking part in the Okinawa Dance Festival, and when Akari expresses surprise, Hinaki explains that Rin and Sumire were invited to perform there as Dancing Diva. This makes Minami happy, but Sumire informs her that due to conflicting schedules, she isn't sure if they can make it or not. Sumire recalls the office visit she and Rin had earlier on before leaving, saying that there might not be enough time between the two to allow travel. She noticed how sad Rin looked, and assumes that it was probably because she was looking forward to seeing Minami.
As Minami happily thinks about the idea of Rin showing up, the girls wish that they could get her there to allow them to reunite. Just then they are called back to the van to get going and before leaving, they hope for the best. Minami agrees to come and see their performance when Sumire mentions the desire to speak to her afterwards.
After the performance ends, Minami heads backstage with a big bouquet of flowers for the trio and compliments them. She thanks them for allowing her to see them and they get straight to work, asking Minami when she met Rin. Minami takes out a picture she has on hand and explains that it was back in fifth grade, she was watching Rin perform on a Dance Show. She kept dancing for improvement, and this inspired Minami to keep dancing so that she could one day be as good as she is. This makes the girls wish even more that Rin could see her, and after they get to their hotel room Sumire gives her a call. She brings up Minami and Rin quickly agrees on the sentiment, recalling how Minami taught her the true fun of dancing. They promise to tell her and Rin hangs up, telling Madoka that she wouldn't be able to make it there in time if the photo-shoot she has takes longer than planned.
The following day, Luminas decide to pay Minami a visit at her school. They were invited to join in on the days lesson. As they greet everyone they admire the scenery nearby.
Meanwhile, Rin has began her photo-shoot. While Johnny compliments how well she is doing, Orihime deduces that she is trying so hard to make sure she is able to get to Okinawa.
The girls head out to the beach with Minami while chatting about the wonderful weather. However, they notice Minami has been quiet and catch her observing the sky as a plane passes.
As Rin takes a break, Johnny presents her with a lemon and informs her that she's almost finished, which excites her greatly. He wishes her luck and Orihime joins her, having determined that Rin is hoping to see Minami, who she already seems familiar with. She asks how they first met and Rin recalls the memory, admitting that she was really nervous in the past. But Minami managed to get her to relax before it was her turn to go onto the stage, when she told her to "let it flow". She tells her to believe in herself and nothing bad will ever faze her. As someone who loves dance, she just has to go out and enjoy it like she normally does. Rin confesses that because of that, she not only had fun but she did very well. Had she stayed nervous then chances are she wouldn't have done as good.
Johnny recalls how Rin was able to come in first place, while Minami came in second; just a point behind. She wasn't upset though, because she had fun and met a good friend through it. Rin told Minami that they would need to dance together again some day and made an agreement. With the condition that they danced in Okinawa, her most favorite spot. Orihime comments on this as Rin mentions how much Minami embodies everything about Okinawa. With that, Orihime hands her a flight ticket and she thanks her before returning to the photo-shoot.
The four girls sit together and continue to chat about this, convinced that Rin is working very hard so that she can be there. They take off to prepare for a practice run of the the Dance Festival, with the classes teacher pointing out that schedule may be moved up, so they should stay loose and ready at all times until then. Luminas listens in the background, with Sumire noticing that the program's first guest will appear within thirty minutes to perform. They worry that Rin won't make it, but Minami tells that even if she is unable to she will see to it that her feelings reach Rin.
The Dance Festival is about to begin and as the girls warm up and stretch, Rin makes her way to the stage just as the Announcer reveals Minami will be going on. Minami is delighted as Rin reminds her of what she told her when they were younger, and she heads off to change clothing with Sumire for their performance of "LOVE GAME".
After the performance, Minami is approached by Rin. She suggests they dance together as promised and they head back out on the stage in order to dance for everyone.
That evening everyone gets together to watch the fireworks, the girls complimenting them as Rin and Minami catch up on lost time. Their bond has never wavered, and they are very happy to see each other again. Minami tells Rin to come by whenever she wants to hang out again and Rin promises she will as Akari takes a photo of them.
