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."

Wow, high ratings here! I'd like to pretend that I'm able to be objective, but I wouldn't be making this my first review if I didn't think that Rainbow Live was pretty damn amazing. As someone who's been following it from the day it aired, and didn't expect a lot out of it back then, it ended up performing above and beyond my expectations. It saddens me that lot of people will miss out on this gem, because it deserves better!

Underneath the cover of sparkles and cute mascots and eye-catching CG is a deeper story, in which every character is more complicated than you initially read more

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 read more

Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live is one of my favorite anime. If you have seen Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream, or Pretty Rhythm Dear My Future, and you loved it, I definitely recommend this season! I don't mean to criticize, but I think their performances out-shined those in the first two Pretty Rhythm seasons.

Story- 8/10
The stories of Pretty Rhythm never fail to impress me. Often they start off light to allow viewers to explore the characters of the story, dropping hints of crucial incidents about to come and then delve into a formidable trial in the second half which portrays both physical and emotional challenges beautifully. read more

Third time reviewing another anime.

This anime doesn't follow the first two series which is good because I had troubles with the sequel of the first anime Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream. I couldn't really write something about the story without spoiling anything so I would go further for the characters.

Each characters are unique and it matches their type of music, what also makes this anime different from the other series, it is because the way they do their jumps. The jumps are set everytime so it doesn't really surprises us anymore.

You cannot really hate the characters here because they later turn out to be read more
