In the wake of the Great Tokyo War, Japan, as the world once knew it, no longer exists. What remains is a fragmented network of independent nations ruled by heroes known as Bests. Each Best commands an army made of the Rest as they seek to conquer anyone in their path. Enter Nozomi, Yukina, Ai, and Chiaya. These four intrepid and adorable girls are ordered by their Best to travel across the country by motorcycle, keeping a watchful eye on the field of battle wherever they encounter violence between warring nations!
This anime was one I wasnt sure off at the start but after watching the first episode with over the top action and some comedy mixed in I fell in love with this anime and its become one of my favourite of the season. The downside side is towards the end I got lost at what was happening but since the anime has great characters introduced all the way though I can forgive that. I highly reccomend this anime to people who just want a fun anime that isnt serious and will bring a few tears at the end.
What I Liked: The very colourful visuals, coupled with the dreamy watercolour-esque backgrounds. The first two episodes were incredibly strong as an opening to the series. The character designs were appropriately youthful. The fact that the series is seperated into arcs made the series feel fresh when it could've become stale fast. Good character development between the main quartet. The storyline that unfolds involving Yukina and the Tokorozawa leader. The soundtrack, which consists of punk-pop covers by the main quartet. Dynamic and fluid character animation. Good pacing throughout. What I Didn't: The fact that the series is seperated into arcs may deter some viewers, as it focuses on the (decoy) main quartet. World building still felt incomplete, and was primarily given through the first two episodes. Character animation is sometimes off-model, espeically in close-ups of faces on abnormal angles. Not much plot going on due to it being a slice-of-life supernatural comedy. The Aichi and Mie arc was the weakest of the arcs. Final Verdict: With a rocking soundtrack and quite amazingly kinetic visuals, The Rolling Girls has an abundance of charm and energy to it. Sure, the surrealist coming-of-age underdog story it tells after the first arc might not be for everyone, but you can't deny that it's colourful, lighthearted and above all a fun (but flawed) little anime.
The begining was great with Macha Green and her rival, but when the showed became about her sister, I dropped interest. I finsished to see if it would make a turn, which it did at the end. The whole purpose of the story was unclear and made it hard to follow. I don't want to spoil anything, but I was under impressed. It would be like watching Kill la Kill or Gurren Laggan, then swithcing over to watch K-on.
