Even though there's only 2 episodes out, I'm still going to leave a review (since nothing is written for the show) for people to read. I don't remember how I found this show, but I saw the preview photo months ago and was looking forward to it. Found out today it was already releasing and decided to watch it. So, each "episode" is actually around 44 minutes. But it's split up, and you are notified of that when it's halfway through. I don't know if it didn't have an opening because it's only the first epsiode or because they're so long, or even if it will have an opening. Hopefully it will eventually. As for the ending creits, they were lame. (Doesn't affect the show itself, but openings & endings are something I look forward to like everyone else). *That is my ONLY complaint* I love all the character designs and the art. It has that soft, pretty, colorful, feminine look. The show's art looked pretty good throughout the episode, except for when they were on stage. Looked very CG. Voice acting seemed pretty fine. I really liked all the characters personality & appearance wise. I do know that this show is based off a mobile game (I forget it's name) and I heard somewhere that it would get 17 episodes (?) Of course, I don't know how valid that is, but that's whats being said. I think the storyline is unique, and I think their music is actually good too. You learn a lot about each character within the first 2 episodes. I'd recommend this show to anyone looking for a light hearted, cute series or someone looking for a show to "fangirl" over boys/find husbandos lol.
All of these anime are the same these days. Same characters, same hurdles, same cheesy stuff. I miss music anime like Kaikan Phrase (did I just date myself?) where what mattered whas the MUSIC and their talents in playing and singing. They started at the bottom in live houses without a professional manager, clawed their way up to larger live houses on their own, promoted by word of mouth by their fans, looking to be scouted along the way. The story was grittier instead of pretty boys bouncing around in silly costumes, wanting to be on variety shows and given everything they could possibly want like the spoiled brats they are. Kaikan, however, destroyed itself when they tossed the newly discovered song writer into a romance with the lead singer that was disfunctional and disgusting... but I digress. Don't get me wrong, I have watched and enjoyed other shows like this one (UtaPri!), but I am getting sick of the same ol' same ol. Someone needs to do something different, something harder with less pretty boy empty-mindedness. Blah blah blah, they'll make it big and defeat Trigger someday, I just know it! Too predictable.
As someone who has knowledge about idol groups (K-pop) it reflects quite well the reality- with how you have to start at the bottom and have only a few people come to your concert or fan meetings, and how difficult it is to prove yourself to even make it into a group let alone debut. The members have good chemistry as they get to know each other and have clear roles - like vocals, dance, visual, a leader ect, and have a personality which makes them each stand out and interesting. I liked the twists within the episode- some I really couldn't predict either. Overall this is a fresh anime for the season for me, and I would like to see how it continues. I have to also say that the animation is really crisp and beautiful, the chracters look stunning to watch.
