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.

this is hidden gem! I repeat this is hidden gem! before I continue I want to tell to the one who read this that this is not normal review... I'm using this section to let out all of my feeling after watching this anime. so please be aware that there might be spoiler from this.

since i'm not really into moe stuff, it's safe to say that Idol genre is not one of my favorite genre. from what I see, Locodol is really different from any general idol anime out there. one thing for sure what I like from this anime is they not focusing ...

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 ...
