SynopsisKirari Tsukishima, a gluttonous 14-year-old beauty, is a girl who does not care about idols and the entertainment world because her mind is occupied by food. Her obsession with food only causes her to be clueless about love.
One day, after saving a turtle that is stranded in a tree, Kirari meets with a handsome and gentle boy named Seiji, who gives her ticket to a SHIPS (a popular idol group) concert to show his gratitude for her saving his pet. Kirari then storms off to the concert and runs into another boy, who tears up her ticket and warns her to stay away from Seiji because she and Seiji live in different worlds. The outraged Kirari then sneaks into the concert, only to discover that Seiji and the boy who tore her ticket, named Hiroto, are actually members of SHIPS.
Finally understanding the meaning of "different worlds" (Seiji is a popular idol while she is an average middle school student), Kirari refuses to give up. Filled with determination to be with Seiji, she declares that she will also become an idol.

Characters & Voice Actors
Allow me to admit outright that the only reason I started watching this show was because the main character, Kirari, is voiced by a member of one of my favorite music groups, Morning Musume. Because I'm a huge fan of shoujo, this was just chocolate frosting on the cake.
Unfortunately, Kirarin Revolution is full of cliches and predictablity. The only things "unique" about it that I can tell is that you basically watch an idol's day-to-day workload, with a tiny smidge of reality cushioned by the usual anime antics. Kirari does not become an idol because of a magical interference (think shows like Fancy La La or the manga Cyber Idol Mink), and she is not thrown into it with little or no problems. She actually has to work at her goal and overcome obstacles on almost a daily basis, learning it's not enough to simply stand around and look cute.
There is very little development in this story, and for every "useful" episode you will find several fillers. Every now and then you'll also get a "conflict" that takes 2 or 3 episodes to resolve. I know you should expect it to be that way for a series that's over 100 episodes, but this makes it very slow going. For instance, I have never seen a romance stretched out for this long before. It's enough to make even the most patient hopeless romantic scream "Just get together already!" (for the sake of spoilers, I won't tell you anything else).
The music in the show is catchy, but Kirari is a bad singer and pretty much squeaks her lines. Prepare yourself.
As far as the animation, the quality might have you shaking your head at times because of how OFF the characters can look. I've also heard that later episodes adopt a computerized 3D look - however, I haven't gotten that far and thus can't comment on it yet.
It's definitely a cute and fun show, and I do get enjoyment out of it (I am a firm believer in Hiroto's powers of awesome), but it's mostly a light, fluffy romp with not much else. I'm sure the young girls it's aimed at adore it (how else would it have gone this long?), but if you're looking for something with more substance (and half the length), look elsewhere. If you love to give all shoujo a chance, need something to kill time, and/or you just want to find a harmless guilty pleasure, jump right in. read more
Kirarin Revolution is about a young girl called Kirari who becomes an idol because she wants to follow her crush, Seiji. However, as the story progresses, she wants to be an idol for more than that reason.
I gave the story a 4 because it doesn't develop much and far too many of the episodes are fillers. I can understand that the writers would find it hard to keep up a decent storyline for over 100 episodes, but still.. in each episode an event happens that would usually take a quarter of an episode in most other series, hence making the series feel very dragged out.
It is aimed for younger girls who want to be an idol like Kirari, and that is probably why the lack of a decent story annoys me.
The art is fair enough. It isn't bad, but it isn't outstanding either. Kirari always manages to look pretty and cute, but that's as far as it goes. All the other characters and backgrounds look fairly plain in comparison to Kirari.
The music is catchy, up-beat and cute, just how it's meant to be. The first opening theme and the second ending theme are delightful to listen to and have very cute lyrics; I even have the second ending on my ipod ^^. The background music is a little repetitive, but not so much that it bothers the viewer.
Aside from Kirari, none of the characters stand out as they are all pretty standard - Seiji is dense and naive, Hiroto is a tsundere, Erina is a spoilt brat and similar to Luna from Seto no Hanayome, and so on. Also, none have had any development yet, which pushes my score down. Everyone seems to just be there to push the story along.
Yes, even though I've just been complaining about the series, I gave this section a 8/10, simply because I always know I can relax when watching this series without becoming bored stiff. It's a lovely way to relax after having a hard day, and the language is quite easy so I can paint my nails without reading the subtitles sometimes ^^; haha.
Overall, I thought that Kirarin Revolution deserved a 7/10. OK, it's not for everyone, but if you're like me and just want to find a nice and easy-going series about a cute idol, then I recommend it ^^ read more
Both have idol and singing themes, both are really cute. ^^
Both revolve around singing.. and both have main characters that sing for the person they love (who is blonde in both shows!) and then yet there is a dark haired, angry "rival" who doesnt seem like a rival at first. Both shows have evil rivals (who have evil pets), and the list goes on. Overall, they're a fairly similar setup and if you enjoyed one, you may enjoy the other! However, Kirarin Revolution contains a lot more filler than Fullmoon.
A young girl rises to be #1 idol. Music theme. A touch of humor. Similarity: 3*
The main character of each show is a young girl who dreams of becoming an idol. Both girls want to become an idol because of a boy, but along the way, their feelings change. Both also feature a lot of singing, as both Mitsuki and Kirari hold concerts, and the songs are generally fun j-pop songs. Also, both feature quite a bit of anime-original material to pad out the manga.
similar because they both are a romance and there is singing in both of them
In both these shows the girls wish to become idols to get closer to the guy that they love n_n
Similar on how a girl does her best to fulfil a dream in the show business including romance and comedy.
In both Kirarin Revolution and Full Moon WO Sagashite the main characters become Idols for guys that they like. In both anime the main character slowly figure out that they don't really like the boy that they think that they like but the one that has been with them from the start and that had helped them out the most.
The differences in these anime are that Mistki has only a year left to live and transforms into the 16 year old body she uses to be an idol (Full Moon) while Kirari does not have a 'time limit' on life and does not transform but does more close work with the guy she likes (the one she think she likes and the one she actually likes) as well as getting partners.
I recommend both anime as they are both lots of fun and have lots of comedy.
Despite the fact that their reasons to enter the entertainment world are the opossite, they later discover that the entertainment world it's not as easy as it seems and it's not just about wanting to be there but that it also requires a lot of hard work.
The two of them are funny and if you like this kind of shoujo,romantic, comic and idols stuff you might enjoy watching it.
they are both about the entertainment world..
kirarin revolution is about a girl who fall in love at 1st sight making her aim to be an idol to become close to the guy she loves..
skip beat is about a girl who devotes all her life for her childhood love that eventually making use at her that makes her so angry she aim to join the entertainment world to make revenge..
both.. as the story goes on they become happy being an idol and they both make there best for their fans..
Both plots are very similar. Both main characters want to be popstars because of a guy popstar and actually are great at being a popstar. They love the popstar who they joined fame for, but ending falling for the other male popstar they meet. Skip beat is like the grown up version of Kirarin Revolution.
the girls (female) characters are entering in the showbiz industry and both girls are being surrounded by the two lead male characters.
both the main females have the same attitude, all in the series are very similar.
Kirarin is younger, but the show business theme is still similar. I did like Skip Beat better.
