SynopsisLemon Angel was once the greatest girl band of Japan, but then it broke up and most of its members vanished. When a music producer decides to put together a new Lemon Angel, average high schooler Tomo Minaguchi is approached to audition for the group. Little does she know of the mystery behind the original Lemon Angel...
Characters & Voice Actors
I finished Lemon Angel Project just yesterday and I noticed that it didn't have a review yet, so I thought I'd do the honours <3
Lemon Angel Project is set in the year 2017, and is about Tomo Minaguchi, a girl who's close friend and senpai Yui recently died due to "unknown causes". While she was still alive, Yui told Tomo that she felt happy and full of life when Tomo sang, and she was also the creator of the popular all-girl group called the "Lemon Angel Project", who mysteriously vanished shortly before Yui's death.
A year and a half later, Tomo, along with other girls, tries out to become a member of the new and revived Lemon Angel Project.
Basically, it sounds dull, simple and recycled, right? Haha. That is so wrong. Lemon Angel Project is far from mindless and it actually covers a lot of things rarely seen in shoujo anime, such as bullying people from other countries.
The art was beautiful! I didn't notice the backgrounds very much, but the people were pretty much always drawn beautifully. Especially Erika; her hair was done beautifully. I think it deserved a 9/10. Nothing to complain about ;3
Heck, I loved the OP song, Angel Addict. It fitted the series just perfectly and was one of those songs that made me just want to stand up and dance, and that doesn't happen all that often ;3 there was a great number of insert songs and songs used in the auditions, and each of them was beautiful and fitted what was going on perfectly. 10/10!
I thought that the characters were going to be simple and standard, because I shamefully based my initial thoughts on this series on Kirarin Revolution. Oh how wrong I was. One or two characters are standard and recycled, such as Fuyumi, but others stood out so well. The one who was the most unique was Erika Campbell. I won't describe her here since I think you need to watch the series rather than read this to fully understand how she is different.
Let me just say, this is the ONLY series that has kept me up watching until gone midnight. I marathoned the first 7 episodes because it was just so darn addicting; I wanted to see more and more!
I don't like idol series, or series about girls trying to become famous singers. But this one was so different, I can't understand why it's rated so lowly here on MAL ;3; I enjoyed pretty much every minute of Lemon Angel Project, and I'd gladly watch it all over again.
Overall, Lemon Angel Project was fantastic. It had lots of things in it that I really wouldn't have expected, and it was pleasantly surprising in that sense. I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind a all-female main cast <3 read more
I realise that reviews criticising the anime are rated as 'not helpful' a lot, but I want to say that I'm not trying to criticise the anime, just trying to help people get a better idea of it =]
Usually I don't like futuristic stories because I don't like sci-fi stories, but for once, the future year setting does NOT have anything to do with the anime except for more advanced technology. Overall, the story was quite, well, normal. It's quite obvious from the start who's going to be the star of the show, so even at the parts where it's supposed to make you tense with suspense (rhyme =D) you don't feel anything XD BUT. Suddenly, as you watch the last few episodes, the truth suddenly begins unraveling rapidly and keeps you on your toes. And the last episode is simply sweet ;D
The art might look pretty good at first, but when you look closer, you can see that the way they draw the girls aren't so good. The head-body proportions are...kind of weird o_O But other than that, it's good ^^ Nothing to comment on, really, as it's not really a big feature of the anime, not like Clannad, or Sola.
Hm... This is supposed to be a musical anime, right? However, some of the songs I found were not up to my expectations. Other times, the songs are really beautiful, the most beautiful in my opinion Watashi wo Sagashite as it's really meaningful =D So it's really up to you, as many people have different tastes.
Well... As you watch the first few episodes, you'll find out something about the main character: she is very, VERY annoying. But miraculously, she suddenly becomes not annoying in the later episodes -_- Other than that, I think the characters were okay, but none of them were very outstanding. The most outstanding character, in my opinion, is Erika, for obvious reasons (and not her skin colour).
The enjoyment wasn't consistent throughout the whole series, but rather, I find that the anime keeps you relaxed and non-expectant in the first few episodes whereas as the show progresses it starts to build up and gradually the enjoyment meter rises. Thankfully the series is short, so you don't feel bored for too long XD
I almost wanted to give it an 8, but I decided 7 would be better because of the significant lack of consistency - good in some of the SAME area, bad in some of the SAME area. But that's just my opinion, and I want to share it with you. I hope you'll find my opinion of this anime useful in deciding whether you want to watch it or not! ;D read more
Both of them are about a group of girls who need to make it to the top. They also have the same amount of people and some of the characters are kinda similar. Another thing is that they're both 2006-animes which means that the drawingstyle and colors are good. I'm sure if that you liked the girls/idol/singing thing in Lovedol ~Lovely Idol~ you'll also like Lemon Angel Project!
both are about an all-girl pop group.. give these two series a crossover and there will be a showdown
Both of them are about creating another generation of an idol group, with a manager struggling to make them debut. The songs are quite good in both of the animes and each of the characters have a specific personnality. Also, their is a bit of drama in lemon angel project and its a bit more a futurist world.
