The Moon Rises Episode 1/Transcript

Madeline Sycamore was a normal girl from Hokkaido who had always wanted to become an idol, but never expected to go as high as she is now. For some reason, that comes as a surprise to a lot of people. After all, isn't she considered a prodigy who seemingly mastered her entrance audition? Well, that's true, but only slightly. But truth be told, Madeline wasn't as always as good as she is when she's expanding the world of Aikatsu once again. This is the story of how Madeline rose to the top of the idol world.
