Naru Ayase is an 8th grader who can see the colors of music when she listens to it. For Naru, who is extremely good at decorating, becoming the owner of a shop like Dear Crown was her dream. One day, she finds out that the manager of a newly-opened shop is recruiting middle school girls who can do Prism Dance, and immediately applies. Naru begins to Prism Dance at the audition, and an aura she's never experienced spreads out in front of her. At that moment, a mysterious girl named Rinne asks her if she can see "rainbow music."

If you like the pretty dresses, cute pets, magical dances, etc. in Aikatsu!, the first two seasons of Pretty Rhythm, and e.g. Precure, yet find the plots of those animes somewhat too childish, then Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live may be exactly the anime for you. All the aforementioned elements are present, but there are also plenty of heartwarming (sometimes tear-jerking, yet never hopelessly depressing) drama involving friends and family, told with more depth than child shows but never mind-boggling. And yes, there is a healthy dose of romance as well, not so much as to overshadow the other aspects of the show, but ...

Preliminary (33/51 eps)
I'll very frank about the Pretty Rhythm sequel currently on air called Rainbow Live. The music in the anime is not completely original especially the opening theme during few prism shows called Boy Meets Girl. Although the artwork and the sound are somewhat good, but what I am sick and tired of are the characters and the plot of the show. It’s stupid enough to combine figure skating and dancing in anime, but going overboard with flying penguins turning into musical instruments. The Prism Live part is where it really gone downhill as in playing musical instruments while ice-skating at ...
