In the town of Nagarekawa, Nanako Usami, an ordinary high school girl, is approached by her uncle to become a local idol or "Locodol," partnering with upperclassman Yukari Kohinata to form the idol unit, Nagarekawa Girls. As the girls use their talent to promote Nagarekawa and their businesses, they are joined by Yui Mikoze, who acts as the local mascot, and Mirai Nazukari, who serves as Yui's substitute.

Before you start reading this, you should know that I am a person that greatly hates the idol genre. Most of what I have written here would probably be considered useful information only in the eyes of those who dislike the idol genre as well.

Story (9/10): In all fairness, Locodol has nothing particularly great about it in regards to a story. The reason for my scoring is because Locodol is an idol anime of its own instead of trying to be the same old stretched out stereotypical idol anime. I believe the greatest point about Locodol is the fact that Yukari and Nanako aren't idols read more

One time, my friend who also watches this anime told me that it isn't an idol anime, thus I can't compare it to Love Live, etc. But hey, the idol theme still sticks, so you can't judge me.

When I first heard about this anime, I thought of myself 'hey, is this going to be another 'great' idol anime'? Well, let's see how it goes, shall we?

Locodol revolves a group of fellow girls: two of them, Nanako and Yukari, as 'locodols' or local idols, under the name of 'Nagarekawa Girls', and two manning a mascot character, Yui and Mirai.

This basic story starts with Nanako given a read more

Nagarekawa: a quiet, peaceful country town in Japan, where there aren't any tourist attractions to attract tourist for such amusement parks but they do have public swimming pools! So the Nagarekawa City Hall decided to promote their city, by introducing Kohinata Yukari and Usami Nanyako. Thus the Nagarekawa girls was born with 2 more girls joining them. Their aim? Promote Nagarekawa City!

The story for the series is nothing much interesting but 4 main girls being the locodols trying to promote Nagarekawa via National TV or entering contest in order to be featured in the Television. They do have fanservice but not that much, what read more

First review on MAL (although I have several anime review blog entries).
Note: The score is adjusted to MAL scales by adding 1pt to the original score.

First of all, this is not the usual idol anime you watch. It's not like shows like Love Live, the The iDOLM@STER etc. Instead surprisingly, the 'Futsuu'(Plain) in the title is what makes this show avoid your stereotypical idol anime.
But on the other hand, it also means that this anime is more close to your usual slice-of-life anime.

The most important feature of this anime is that in many ways, it is not 'idealized'. It depicts the plain-looking work of Locodols read more
