Three years after the events of "Pretty Rhythm: Aurora Dream," Aira, Mion, and Rizumu have grown up and tutor a new group of aspiring idols: Karin, Reina, Mia, and Ayami, who form the Prizmmy☆. Teenage girls from Korea, named Somin, Shiyoon, Haein, Chaekyung, and Jae Eun (who are the PURETTY), appear as a rival group.

The story starts about how you'd expect new MC storms the scene declares war on the current best of the best your typical start been there done that doesn't really constitute a, + or -. Im not going to drag this review out im just going to delve straight in.
Story: 6 this shows story in comparison to last season is far worse than last seasons but i still ended up watching it all the way through, for reasons I'll specify later.To clarify despite a NEW MC taking the reigns in this season you do have to watch the first season to understand where this
season was heading.
Art:7 one of the reasons i was able to get through the series was the art and all the outfits that were in the show.The art wasn't groundbreaking or revolutionary but it fit the show well even when they were danceing.
Sound:7 The songs were good some were better than others the ops however i listened to each for a second but ended up skipping them every episode but hey I wasn't there to listen to 51 episodes of 1: 30 OPs and EDs.
Characters:5 AAANNDDD this is where the show suffers in comparison to its great predecessor Aurora Dream the characters were fundamentally unlikeable to a degree and is why this season suffered as far as fans were concerned. In this season they add 9 new character most of said characters felt empty to me and I wasn't able to connect with any of them like I did with Aira, Mion and Rhythm in the first season. This also occurred for me after watching the 3rd season of aikatsu when Ichigo, Ran and Aoi stopped being the main MC and Akari (and Co.) took over. The characters suffered massive development throughout and were immensely lackluster none of them really stood out for me or got me emotionally invested only the returning cast did, and thats bad when the support cast overshadows your NEW main cast if your pushing the originals out. AND don't even get me started on the fact that about 3 to 4 of them have absolutely annoying catchphrases in what i can only imagine is an attempt to imitate and create a catchphrase like Aira's "happy lucky" and "pretty remake" . Aira kept this show alive as far as im concerned at least for me.
Enjoyment 6: It was'nt a complete disappointment.
Overall 6: In all honesty this show wasn't that bad however I'd be lying if I said I'd watch this again as it made me feel a bit angry near the end. If I'm being at all serious to many plot devices to make the new MC look better than she was. I only watched this season to see Aira again and find out how her relationship with Sho would play out. Because sorry little Mya Mia(see like i said unremarkable MC already forgot her name and the entire main cast can't remember even 1 of 9 of their names) unless you can perform an Aurora Rising Dream you just aren't NUMBER 1.
All in all if your going to watch this watch this series watch first season it was good this season however is hard to recommend unless your like mee and want to see more Aira Mion and Rhythm performing as MARs again
Here I am, reviewing the second season of Pretty Rhythm; Dear My Future.
The story is well done like it's prequel; Aurora Dream. It's characters start off as annoying and brats at the start especially Mia but all are likable later. It's music is better than the first season and animation is better too. But it doesn't surpass the previous season in terms of story and plot. Overall it was enjoyable for me.
I know many fans hate this season and I used to hate it as well. But now I love it. It still has incomplete subs for it and I haven't finished it yet.
But I'm planning to watch it raw because the hopes of subs are 0% now.
