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".

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:

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~

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 read more

To start off, im your typical action, death loving kind of guy. Wanting a chill anime to watch, i picked up PR: Aurora dream and loved it, after they added more songs to the lineup and different dances. They dance sequences on the ice were captivating to the point of saying "Fuck tradtional ice-skating, this is what ice-skating shouldve been, minus the prism jumps of course.

Now to the review

Story- 8. Up to ep 26, when they finally become a unit, it was the usual build up to it, i like the concept of Prism Live, playing instruments while you dance. The plot twist between read more

Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live is one of my favorite anime. If you have watched Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream, or Pretty Rhythm Dear My Future, and you loved it, I definitely recommend this season! I don't mean to criticize, but it makes the first two seasons seem like it was done pretty half-assed.

If you are looking for a show with a lot of depth, this show may or may not be the perfect show for you. If you want ghosts and vampires, then maybe watch something else. But if its unknown pasts, excitement and mysteries you want, then this is perfect. It may seem like there's read more

The main protagonist is a girl, and she is surrounded with wonderful characters. Both are music themed, and mainly focus on the character pursuing their dreams. The only main difference is that one is about becoming idols while the other is about figure skating.
-Both Characters Have Dancing Content.
- You will Enjoy They're Lives or Etc.
-I think You will Learn How To Dance xD
-The Main Character has a Same Name. In Pretty Rhythm It's "Naru, Ayase" and The Hanayamata has "Sekiya, Naru"


-Hanayamata doesn't have any singing content but the PR:RL have it.
-Hanayamata have a Club but Pretty Rhythm Have a Shop auditions (actually, Naru from PR's only work is to be a Manager of a Shop but there's a Prism Dance)
-Both Animes dont Have Similarities about the Genres. The PRRL Genre's is Music, Shoujo But Hanayatama has Slice Of Life, Seinen.
-Hanayamata is About Yosaikoi Japanese Traditional Dance. PRRL is About Prism Dance.
They both have singing and dancing. PRRL is about doing figure skating and prism jumps while Aikatsu is about becoming an idol and passing auditions.
-A character that has an idea to forms a group to sing and preform

-They both wear costumes when preforming

-Both include mostly girl characters

they both have friends that came out an egg.
Both of these are idol anime TV shows that both feature happy and joyful times, but as well as hard and rough times.
