Aira Harune, a clumsy yet happy-go-lucky girl, is suddenly dragged into the popular world of Prism Shows—an idol show based on figure skating, where performers called "Prism Stars" wear outfits encased in Prism Stones and perform stylistic Prism Jumps. Captivated by the dazzling fashion and gorgeous Prism Jumps, Aira decides to become a Prism Star herself.

She soon encounters the hot-headed Rizumu "Rhythm" Amamiya, who desires to perform the legendary Prism Jump “Aurora Rising”; as well as the prideful Mion Takamine, who dreams of becoming the brightest Prism Star above the rest. The journey of these girls is marked by friendship, growth, and unexpected encounters. Can they perform Prism Jumps high enough to reach their dreams and become the next Prism Queens?

Pretty Rhythm: Aurora Dream is based on Tomy Company Ltd.'s 2010 arcade game Pretty Rhythm: Mini Skirt. The arcade game was relaunched under the same title as the anime on April 28, 2011 to tie in with the show's release.

The series' premiere was delayed one week from April 2, 2011 to April 9, 2011 due to the 2011 Touhoku Earthquake.

Story: 6/10
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.

Art: 9/10
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.

Sound: 9/10
I would've given the music/sound a 10/10, but the beginning music was too repetitive. In fact, the beginning episodes in general ...

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 ...
