Now this anime is an interesting one indeed. After what happened with the ending to Pretty Rhythm Dear My Future, I thought that was it for Pretty Rhythm and Rainbow Live was going to muck it all up and make it unwatchable.. boy was I wrong! This series has kept with the storyline which starts a bit slow but once you see a climax happen, it happens fast and hard and leads into the next! Now as for someone that was and still is a shounen anime watcher, it has some elements that wouldn't be expected from this series from an outside view:
1: The character development is on an episode basis as in which one episode could be based on one character and then the next would move on to the next and so on and I liked that since it makes you learn more about the character and cheer them on as they do their episodic Prism Show
2: As mentioned, each episode has a Prism Show (with exception with a couple) and give you something to look forward to at the end of an episode and some of them lead as a set up into the next episode and heightens the excitement of the story.
3: The soundtrack is great and where there's a dramatic or sad moment going on, the music complements it and also, some of the previous seasons ost can be hear which is a plus.
4: The characters look like they fit in a teen anime and the designs aren't that bad for a show that's main moments are for powerful story and exciting Prism Shows.
Now as for the minus's:
1. Sometimes I wonder to myself what they're trying to shoot for because with that episodic story, sometimes, the story changes and never goes back and characters are forgotten.
2: It can be predictable to see who is better than someone by in the order that they appear which means that even though they look like they could do it, they won't because they're a secondary character and won't catch up to the main character.
So with all that, Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live is in no means perfect but has the elements to be a blast even for someone that isn't used to watching these kind of shows. give it a try, you won't be dissapointed! :) read more
This will be my first review so bear with me, it'll be kind of messy. There are no reviews for this show yet and I think it really deserves one.
So when you first see this anime, you look at the colorful characters, the sparkles, the whole idea of dancing singing and prism lives with sparkly music and sparkly well EVERYTHING.
But don't give it up just because it looks like another childrens anime with transforming girls, because it's actually really interesting~
It's INTERESTING ok
You can't tell at all what's going to happen next, who's going to win the competition, and some of the characters have some hidden past that you just CANT GUESS from their actions. Everythings not painfully oblivious or happy that makes you want to barf.
It's not another childrens show, the characters overcome challenges, they grow, and on top of that they are so lovable, seriously lovable. Sure there's the happy/loli characters, but they're not... annoying i guess.
The songs they use for prism lives are seriously catchy, they're typical idol songs but still, they're catchy.
It's not super intense or anything, but it's entertaining, very entertaining and enjoyable. You will not feel bored. There are so many mysteries behind the characters (in a good way) and you just want to keep watching.
Just give this show a chance, watch the first 3 episodes, and you will NOT be bored, don't judge it from the talking animals, colorful characters, and childish sounding storyline ^^ read more
