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...!?
Luminas heads to their next touring location, Okinawa. They chat about how different it is from Tokyo when Akari recalls that a program is starting and turns on the television before them. The announcer has invited Lisa and Nono as a couple of rising Idols and asks them how they feel since making their Idol Debuts. Nono admits that it was shocking when they were chosen, while Lisa comments that she has been happy and finds it hard to believe it isn't a dream. Nono pulls on her cheek to prove to her it isn't, then goes on to admit she did it to herself a bunch of times already, causing them to 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 as they speak, this catches her attention - causing her to express shock.
Quickly she runs up the nearby steps to confirm her suspicions of their identity and excitedly 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 formally knows Rin. Minami confirms that she does, having met her at a dance audition in Tokyo. She really loves Rin's dancing, and offers to chat about more her if they have some time. So they stop for some ice cream and sit down. Sumire expresses disappointment that Rin couldn't join them and Minami claims this is quick as nice. She claims that it is because of Rin that she continues to dance. Sumire is able to correctly guess 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 to make a Dancing Diva guest appearance.
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 again, 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, but just then, they are signaled back to the tour van to get going. They promise to hope for the best and Minami agrees to come and see their performance after Sumire mentions that she would like to talk to her afterwards.
After the performance ends, Minami heads backstage to speak to them. She reveals a huge bouquet of flowers for them and compliments the performance, then thanks them for allowing her to come back stage to speak to them. With that, they get down to business by asking her how long ago it was when she met Rin. Minami takes out a picture of them and reveals they met in fifth grade. She watched Rin perform on a Dance Show and mentions that she keeps going with her dancing in order to become 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 is quick to call her. She brings up Minami and Rin admits that she felt the same way and recalls that Minami had been the one who taught her the true fun with 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 even a few minutes longer than it should.
The following day, Luminas decide to pay Minami a visit at her school. They had been invited to join everyone for a lesson and they greet everyone before admiring 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.
As the girls head out to the beach with Minami, they chat 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 only has one more to get through before she can go. She is excited with the idea, and he wishes her good luck. Orihime joins her and guesses that Rin is hoping to get 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. Minami said, "let it flow", and it was what got her to calm down as she assured Rin would be fine. 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 really well. Had she stayed nervous the way she did, 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, due to the fun they had, and they 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 it. They are convinced that Rin is working her hardest so that she can get there. With that they take off, heading to the stage for a practice run of the Dance Festival. Their teacher tells them that the 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 prepares to start as the girls warm up and stretch. Rin makes her way to the stage, appearing just as the announcer reveals it is time for Minami to go on. Rin reminds Minami of what she told her, to "let it flow", and she goes off with Sumire to change into their Dancing Diva attire to perform as the opening act. They change and perform to "Love Game".
After the performance, Minami is approached by Rin, who tells her they should dance together, just as promised. They head out onto the stage to together dance for everyone.
Later on in the evening, everyone gets together to watch the fireworks. The girls compliment that while they haven't seen each other in so long, their bond never wavered. This makes Minami and Rin happy and they express their joy in seeing each other again after so long. Minami tells Rin to just come by whenever she wants to hang out again and Rin promises she will as Akari takes a photo of them.
