Synopsis

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.

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.

Story:

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.

Allow me to admit outright that the only reason I started watching this show was because the main character, Kirari, is voiced by a member of one of my favorite music groups, Morning Musume. Because I'm a huge fan of shoujo, this was just chocolate frosting on the cake.

Unfortunately, Kirarin Revolution is full of cliches and predictablity. The only things "unique" about it that I can tell is that you basically watch an idol's day-to-day workload, with a tiny smidge of reality cushioned by the usual anime antics. Kirari does not become an idol because of a magical interference (think shows like Fancy La La read more

As a fan of shoujo and magical girl series, I started watching Kirari because it looked adorable. And while it -IS- adorable, with cute character designs and a few notable tunes, namely the second opening theme "Balalaika", the series proved extremely predictable and had very few new ideas to bring to the genre. Each episode reads like a script and you can see things coming from a mile away.

Kirari is your stereotypical cute (and somewhat gluttonous) dense school girl who falls in love with an idol singer (Seiji, who ironically is equally naive). And of course, there's his co-idol, Hiroto, whom she doesn't get read more

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
