Prism Stars are performers on the new popular ice show, Prism Show. They are superidols whose techniques, singing and fashion sense are a cut above all others. Aira and Rizumu are two Prism Stars whose goal is to become the best, the Prism Queen; however, the road to success is bumpy.

The story is not original. Period. But if you are the type of person who likes shoujo/slice of life/ cute girls/ fulfilling dream anime, watch this one. The story progressively gets better, a bit boring at first, but after....oops almost gave something away. Just trust me when I say it gets better.
The art was pretty good (I have high stardards, if I don't like the art, I don't watch it). They could have worked on the 3-D part a bit more though.
I would've given the music/sound a 10/10, but the beginning music was too repetitive. In fact, the beginning episodes in general
was repetitive. The background music, their show music, is all incredible though.
I've met many characters like the main characters in this story in other anime/mangas, but that didn't stop me from loving them. Some of the supporting characters, like Kaname and Rhythm's mother, make the story more interesting for me.
Again, I would have given this full points if it weren't for the repetitive-ness of the beginning episodes. Other than that, it was thoroughly enjoyable. I had my eyes flued to the screen for the last few episodes.
I like it. It may not be original, but at least it kept me wanting more, and I enjoyed it. And that's all that matters.
Remember, this is just my own opinion. You are completely entitled to your own and don't have to agree with me.
This is a cute anime. I like this anime because it include fashion, dances, singing and a bit of love. The main character are three girls who aim to be 'Prism Queen'. Prism Queen is the highest level among all 'Prism Show'. The three girls perform prism show and met many rivals along the way of becoming prism queen. Apart from rivals, they made a lot of friend. The path of becoming prism queen is very hard, but they made it there!
This anime is the kind of anime you have to go through so that you enjoy it.
Firstly let's talk about the art. It's okay. Its 3D is better than Aikatsu's at its beginning, Kirari's, Sailor Moon Crystal's transformation's and so on. The 2D is not that great, but it is fair.
The music is great! The OST is kind of boring, but the songs and the openings (especially the second) are interesting!
The characters seem really show at the beginning of the anime. But as you discover them, you see that they're deep. Not especially original or complex, but they are definitely not clichés.
The story is
harder to criticise. Precisely, the beginning is just awful. It is probably the worst beginning I've watched, seens, listened or read. You just can't understand what's going on.
But the story gets better, and the end is far from being good. It's brillant. I won't explain why, but the end of the anime is just excellent.
And somehow, I loved Prism shows. I don't know why. They aren't that great. But the anime makes you understand that they are more than show, that it is a reflect of your soul. It may not affect you at all. But, for my part, I've just felt amazed and affected. I know it is not that good. But somehow, I love it.
This is why my overall grade is 7/10. I guess that it truly deserves 5/10. But I can't give that. Because it truly resonates with my soul.
