Synopsis

Tiara, a princess from the kingdom of Waleland, travels to the city of Mamkestell to attend a prestigious academy for those who practice magic like herself. After passing a test to prove her eligibility, Tiara reunites with her childhood friend Rosetta, who is also a student there. She then joins and meets Rosetta's group: the athletic Lavie, the reliable Ashley, and the bookish Lynette—all of whom Tiara quickly befriends.

In this institution, students are placed into one of three ranks based on their test score: group Noir being the highest, followed by Rouge and Lapis. Tiara's group is ranked Lapis, and if that wasn't enough, those who fail while ranked Lapis face expulsion. Realizing their dire situation, Tiana urges everyone to start taking their activities more seriously.

On top of this, Tiara has one more purpose for excelling at the academy: to become more like her elder sister, who is a very skilled singer. However, to reach the stage that she desires, she will have to overcome many challenges, along with her companions, as she continues her magical journey.

Not a masterpiece, but a fine piece of art. Lapis Re:LIGHTs breaks the “Re:” curse and gains a nice position in this season’s chart. Maybe too underestimated, and maybe it’s because that underestimation that I can give a high score.

Although it’s evidently a moe product, the depiction of the story and world is much more deeper than “non-moe” works of this period, giving the impression that those kind of works lack the attention and the perfectionism which we find in Lapis Re:LIGHTs. The technical direction is extremely precise, with cinematographic cuts and meticulous care of context and scenery. Oh, how I like the satisfaction of read more

Lapis Re: LiGHTs (LiGHTs) is a poorly executed uneven mishmash of anime genres put together in an attempt to differentiate it from an already saturated market. It’s as if there were too many ideas or influences and instead of crafting an anime that excelled in a few areas, they created one that was mediocre in all of them. Everyone loves cute girls, so we’ll have over 25 of them. The school setting is a tried-and-true formula, so all the girls will be students. The fantasy genre is seeing a resurgence, so it’ll be a magical school. Should it be a comedic Slice-of-Life or plot driven? read more

Talk about surprise of the season. Without any prior knowledge coming into this series I was fully expecting a low budget soulless mobage adaptation not unlike Nanabun. And not especially Milky Holmes Lite.

To be perfectly honest going in into the first episode initially had me fearing the show would be your typical idol show with school saving, rivals, angst and protagonist powers. Then the second episode completely and utterly shattered those expectations to become something special. I mean, this is a show with a goddamned lesbian cabaret club. It’s wacky and insane and thankfully the idol stuff is kept to a minimum and the justifications read more
