Sweet Jesus… Why is there no warning when you fire up the first episode? Surely there has to be some kind of warning for the new, inexperienced viewer of anime. How about this; “Warning! The show you are about to watch may or may not give you eye cancer. Proceed at your own risk.” – I wouldn’t be at all surprised if this show was actually bad for your health.
The artwork… Sorry, I almost vomited at this part. Remembering what I saw brought it all back again. I cannot believe how gay this looks. There can’t be any self-respecting guys out there that actually like this sort of thing. Guys that do need to be locked up, because would we really want those guys walking among us? It’s bad enough that some of them dress up as girls to traumatize straight guys.
It’s not just the artwork that’s girly either. Oh hell no, the story has its fair share of gay and girly. It’s no secret that I hate these types of shows (shows where characters sing girly songs and whatnot), but isn’t this going too far?
Just kill me. Recommending this to a guy would be social suicide, so I’m taking a different approach; are you a chick (check to see if you don’t have a penis somewhere)? Do you have trouble finding a boyfriend, are you without self-respect and do you like pretty, shiny colours? Good news! This show is definitely for you!
Plot Summary: Naru Ayase is an 8th grader who can see the colors of music when she listens to it. For Naru, who is extremely good at decorating, becoming the owner of a shop like Dear Crown was her dream. One day, she finds out that the manager of a newly-opened shop is recruiting middle school girls who can do Prism Dance, and immediately applies. Naru begins to Prism Dance at the audition, and an aura she’s never experienced spreads out in front of her. At that moment, a mysterious girl named Rinne asks her if she can see “rainbow music”.Read More
I am shocked. I cannot believe that this got another season. How can people actually watch this crap with a smile on their face? I can only imagine that perverts would like this sort of thing…
The artwork is still as shocking as always. They really love to focus on the characters’ eyes. Everything has to be shiny, big and girly. Everything. I actually held in there for five whole minutes before I cut the power to my laptop. I couldn’t watch any more of it.
The story is by far the worst. The story is horrible, and, although it’s only a personal preference from someone that dislikes musical shows, I have no idea to whom I should recommend this. It feels as though I would be hated for recommend this to people.
I’m simply afraid that I cannot recommend this. I suppose perverts that enjoy watching little girls sing would go ecstatic over this one, but not me. They can shove all of that sci-fi crap in a place where the sun refuses to shine for all I care. Thank you for reading one of my most negative reviews ever!
Plot Summary: In the beginning of the 21st century, a world war breaks out over interplanetary travel tech. The environment is pretty much destroyed so mankind leaves Earth, settling on other planets, and starts Star Calendar 00.
Entertainment and songs become heavily regulated and eventually banned on several planets due to their power to move people, but a brave idol group puts on guerrilla performances in these systems in the name of a famous act from earlier times that sang to Earth’s bitter end, AKB48. Famous throughout the galaxy, the group’s name is AKB0048.
This story centers around a group of girls from various planets, some where entertainment is banned and some, where it is not, striving to become great idols and join AKB0048.
Therefore, they participate in the entrance exam and eventually become undergraduates, aiming to someday succeed the current members of the group.
Hey, this wasn’t that bad. Not bad at all. I thought that I was going to dislike this show. I usually do when it comes to shows with a lot of singing. I just can’t appreciate it. That’s why I’m so surprised. It was pretty darn amusing.
The artwork looks good, the backgrounds look good and the characters look good. It all simply looks good. I especially like the character’s expressions. They don’t focus too much and they don’t get too fanatical with it. Everything is just fine.
The story is what will keep me watching, probably. It’s not that unique, but the setting is just right. The artwork and the story make a very good combination, which is why I have high expectations for this one.
I most definitely recommend this, and not just to music or idol fans. Just give the first episode a chance. You may just happen to like it, just like I did.
Plot Summary: Otonokizaka High School stands on the border of three cities: Akihabara – a pop culture mecca that’s evolving by the minute; Kanda – a conservative, cultured city where history and tradition reign supreme; and Jinbo – a quiet area reserved for a more mature, sophisticated population. Amidst this culture clash, the school now faces closure due to the enrollment of fewer and fewer students.
With the school planning to close within three years, nine female students come together with one thing in mind—form a pop idol group to revive the school’s popularity and keep it from shutting down. “In order to protect our beloved school, there’s only one thing we can do…become pop stars!”
Their goal is simple: Become an overnight sensation and use their nationwide media exposure to promote their school and bring in a wave of new students to the ailing area. A simple but solid plan, they figure. Naturally, they’re nervous and wonder if this plan can really succeed, but for better or worse their new journey has begun…
“All we can ask for is just a tiny bit of support from you. We truly believe that with your help, we can change the world around us. We will make our dreams come true!”Read More
Okay, so I just finished watching the first episode… Wait, hold on… Typing gets a lot easier when I’m doing it with both hands, instead of using one hand to point a gun to head after what I’ve just seen. Spin-off anime? More like a swift kick in the family jewels if you ask me.
The artwork is absolutely dreadful. Idolm@ster was pretty well known for its artwork, but this is simply not funny. I bet even my little niece would hate it. I just can’t get over how childish it is. It’s Naruto SD all over again; a complete and total failure.
I keep raging about the artwork, but the story isn’t much better. I’m astonished here, people. I mean, Idolm@ster had twenty-five episodes, yet this monstrous spin-off will, according to several anime information websites, get no less than sixty-four episodes. Somebody; kill me!
No! No! No! I do not recommend this at all. I watched it, I hated it. Idolm@ster was a quality anime, just like Naruto (Shippuuden), so why would someone want to destroy the image of the aforementioned anime by creating such a dreadful spin-off? It’s just not my type of comedy, sorry.
Plot Summary: From the popular game “THE IDOLM@STER”, comes a petit spinoff cute and soothing 4-koma! The setting is the same 765 Production from the games. One day, 765 Pro idols Ami and Mami bring in the mysterious Petit-dols “Afuu” and “Yukipo”!? More and more Petit-dols gather at the offices where everyone works. Leisurely enjoy their daily lives full of laughs and happenings.Read More
Oh god, what the hell did I watch? This looks a lot like Senki Zesshou Symphogear, and so it’s crap. I’m sorry, I don’t know how to put it any other way. These types of anime are the worst. It’s not that I just don’t like them, oh no. They genuinely suck big time. Idols that sing, fight and pilot mechs on top of all that? No thank you.
The artwork isn’t anything worth mentioning. Sure, it looks pretty nice, I suppose, but what’s with all those ridiculous details? What’s with all those little hearts? I’m serious, they are everywhere. They are in the sky, in the eyes of characters, on clothing, you name…
As for the story goes, well… It sucks. I am truthfully sorry to put it like that. I was pretty interested when I first read about it, I won’t lie about that, but this one truly disappointed me. I generally hate anime where the characters constantly sing. However, this was different. It is supposed to be about war, but instead we have these cute characters with hearts all over the place. Oh, and they sing.
Sigh, don’t even think about it. I absolutely do not recommend it. I truly, truly hated the first episode. Know that I am not the type of person that uses the word “hate” loosely. I seriously think that this anime has very little to offer. Maybe it gets better, but not if I keep seeing those hearts and keep hearing them sing.
