Futsuu no Joshikousei ga [Locodol] Yatte Mita
I do not understand this whatsoever. What did I honestly just see here? The story is a complete mess and it’s everything but interesting. I honestly wish I they didn’t air this so that something else could have taken its place.
I don’t think the artwork is at fault here. The characters look pretty cute, their expressions are pretty funny at times and the artwork in general is pretty detailed I guess. So yeah, no problems on the artwork front.
But you know, you start watching and you just have no idea what is going on. A girl wants to go to the town’s new indoor pool and suddenly becomes an idol? Yeah… No thank you. I don’t see how anyone could find that interesting.
This turned out to be pretty disappointing. I expected more after all that I had read about it beforehand. I thought it was going to be pretty interesting as the heroine worked her way up, but no… This was pretty mediocre and I honestly don’t want to recommend this.
Plot Summary: High school girl Nanako Usami became her town Nagarekawa’s local idol at the request of her uncle. She and her upperclassman Yukari- a girl who seems perfect but ends up being air-headed- both become idols of their provincial area. They get interviewed (by the town’s shopping center), go on television (low-budget cable), and hold concerts (on the roof of the department store). The girls’ salaries come from the town’s taxes. Together, the two form the “locodol” unit Nagarekawa Girls.
