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!
I love this series! It's a great one and it's pretty underrated. Pretty Rhythm has three seasons overall; Aurora Dream, Dear My Future, and Rainbow Live. But as this is Aurora Dream so I'll review it.
First of all the plot here is amazing. If you have an extremely soft heart you can even cry, just like I did. This is the only series so far which made me shed alot of tears. While a few others only made me emotional to a high level but never made me cry.
Harune Aira is your protagonist, she's a klutz and clumsy and isn't good with sports either. But
her fashion sense is awesome. She's my favourite character.
Amamiya Rizumu is also pretty likable but her actions can get frustrating sometimes. She loves to eat meat and is great at dancing and is a love expert.
Takamine Mion is lovable and unique in her own style. She'll start as an annoying brat at the start of series but warms up to Aira and Rizumu. Her singing is beautiful.
The art wasn't good at the start of series but it got better later on. The CG used here is among the best I've seen. All the songs here are likable. But the first opening song gets old cos of being used in every episode. Later it is used less and less to clear up the mess.
There are Prism Stars, special sports idols who aim to become the grand Prism Queen. Of course-- in all cases romance is forbidden for them but they still have love interests.
Aira has Shou. Rizumu has Hibiki. And Mion's love interest is a bit complicated. Mion is first shown to love Jun and has a playful friendship with Wataru. But her crush moves from Jun to Wataru as the series progresses.
Shou, Hibiki, and Wataru are in a unit together called Callings. Aira, Rizumu, and Mion also form a group together called MARs taken from the first letters of their respective names and an extra 's' for a reason I don't remember.
But wait I'm spoiling the series for you. Overall I'm rating this a 10/10.
