On February 13, as snow flurries dance in the air, a new idol unit is born at Pythagoras Production. They are the idols who will deliver their kiss to the ends of the galaxy: "Marginal #4." Its members, Atom Kirihara, Rui Aiba, L Nomura, and R Nomura, put all their effort into their entertainment career for the sake of the fan supporting them! They continue to mature as idols along with the senior unit pulling the entertainment industry forward, Lagrange Point, and the younger unit preparing to make their debut, Unicorn Jr. But when they step off the stage, they're ordinary high school boys with some chaotic student lives!

This is the tale of Margninal #4, a school slice-of-life about idols that shine brighter than the stars.

It's amost like Love Live! and Starmyu got an unwanted child, a very unwanted child.

No but really, I didn't have much expectations for this anime, but despite that it was way more dissapointing than I'd ever imagined.
It had absolutely no storyline whatsoever. It felt like a clutter of some random episodes. And while for some anime it may work, for example Yuru Yuri, it defenitly did not for this one. It doesn't fit the genre.
It defenitly had some potential to become a mediocre guilty-pleasure anime, but it tured out to be a huge dissapointment.

The only thing I kinda liked were some of the ending songs.

Marginal#4 is a hidden gem-- not because of its originality, but its execution.

In a very crowded Idol genre --one anime series being VERY similar to another-- Marginal#4 stands out by being polished and humbled down. It is pretty wise for the anime to not bring out too many characters, allowing proper character development for the four main protagonists. I appreciate the finale that is not a complete 23-minute concert like the rest of its peers and the overall art and animation is above average (there is inconsistent asymmetry every now and then which is sort of passable). The music leans more towards mid-90s piano pop read more

If you're hoping for an idol anime like UtaPri or Love Live, this is definitely not the show for you. If you're ok with it being closer to B-Project or a slice of life, it's definitely worth watching.
Story wise, there's pretty much nothing to this show. It's mainly about the main 4 boys in school or at work (mainly recording CMs and such, not performing shows). What little plot there is is extremely predictable, and often very silly, but enjoyable if you like silly shows.
The animation isn't the best, but it is very good, especially compared to previous Rejet anime. The only downside is occasional read more

I've never written a review before, but after seeing the reviews here, I couldn't help but think I should at least add my opinion. This isn't a romance shoujo anime like Utapri and I really don't think it should be compared to that. As previous comments said, it's more like Tsukipro and Starmyu.

As the others say, the story is kind of all over the place- but isn't that what life is like normally? Honestly, I think it did a good job of just showing cute scenes of what their lives are like as idols, and even though there's not really an overarcing plot line, it's read more
