Kirari Tsukishima, a gluttonous 14-year-old beauty, is a girl who does not care about idols and the entertainment world because her mind is occupied by food. Her obsession with food only causes her to be clueless about love.

One day, after saving a turtle that is stranded in a tree, Kirari meets with a handsome and gentle boy named Seiji, who gives her ticket to a SHIPS (a popular idol group) concert to show his gratitude for her saving his pet. Kirari then storms off to the concert and runs into another boy, who tears up her ticket and warns her to stay away from Seiji because she and Seiji live in different worlds. The outraged Kirari then sneaks into the concert, only to discover that Seiji and the boy who tore her ticket, named Hiroto, are actually members of SHIPS.

Finally understanding the meaning of "different worlds" (Seiji is a popular idol while she is an average middle school student), Kirari refuses to give up. Filled with determination to be with Seiji, she declares that she will also become an idol.

Shoujo anime like this is the reason people hate weaboos. The term "weaboo" wouldn't have such a negative connotation if people didn't imagine them as a neet with an obsession for disproportionate twelve year old girls (or boys) with eyes that take up half of their face, and prepubescent squeaking voices. This show was just all kinds of bad.

Shall we start with the horrifyingly cliche plot of becoming an idol? Talk about overkill. I don't know what prompts Japanese people to believe that you can wake up one day with zero experience or talent, and then happen to strike a deal with a record read more

I think the animators should know that their art begins to deteriorate after each big problem is overcame by Kirari. What is worse is that Kirari matures, which kind of loses the comedy as time goes by.

Story: (2) --Because it can only gets more realistic and not comedic
Art: (1) -- Must I say, a rectangle face shaped Kirarin suits the world of Minecraft rather than the anime world
Sound: (4) --I had some opening and ending songs I liked so I'd say this is a decent score I'll give
Character: (6) --Naa-san is a character that is way past worthiness to be worshipped.....
Enjoyment: (4) read more

This show had a great way of building up a single character fame, fortune, and story. I myself wasn't much of a fan of it though.

Story - 6. The story definitely shows you what it means to build from ground up. It showed all the tasks and hardships endured by Kirari as she worked her way up to the higher ranks of her overall goal. The reason why I believe it's fair and not any better though is because the story itself is VERY close minded and selfish.

Art - 4. A lot of scenes weren't animated at all, in fact, baby faces replace the characters read more

Kirarin Revolution is about a young girl called Kirari who becomes an idol because she wants to follow her crush, Seiji. However, as the story progresses, she wants to be an idol for more than that reason.


I gave the story a 4 because it doesn't develop much and far too many of the episodes are fillers. I can understand that the writers would find it hard to keep up a decent storyline for over 100 episodes, but still.. in each episode an event happens that would usually take a quarter of an episode in most other series, hence making the series feel very dragged out.
