Every little girl waits for the day she'll get her special ticket, one that will grant her entry into the world of PriPara (Prism Paradise). PriPara is a world of music, fashion, and daily auditions for a chance to become a pop idol. Laala Manaka's friends and classmates aspire to become idols, but her school forbids elementary school students from participating in the idol competitions.

Luckily, Laala is only interested in watching the idol shows. Yet somehow despite all this, she manages to bumble her way into the PriPara world, and debut as a fresh new talent. After being told all her life that she's too loud, Laala has finally found a place where she can be as loud as she wants and sing from her heart.

And not only that, but there's a possibility that she might be the legendary Prism Voice. Adventure, fashion, and music awaits as Laala climbs her way to the top, on her way to become the cutest and most beloved pop idol in the world of PriPara!

I watched tons of idol themed anime, and PriPara will hold a very special place in my heart after finishing it.

While the show/theme is aimed at a younger audience of girls, this anime shows genius jokes.
I myself don't perfectly speak Japanese, but I do understand enough to watch this show without subtitles. The show doesn't take itself completely serious, and this is what makes it that great!

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (51/140 eps)
[TW: Gender Dysphoria, possibly. It's fairly minor.]

Considering this is one of my favorite animes, it made me really sad to see that it had no reviews! So without further ado, lets get started!

I'm not very familiar with idol animes to be quite frank. I have a decent grasp of knowledge and information about other series, but they are never really something that really captured me. That is, with the exclusion of Pripara.

Story [5/10]
Pripara reminds me quite a bit of a magical girl show. Main character has amazing power, must keep her identity secret from those in her daily life or face repercussions, cute overly ...

Preliminary (41/140 eps)
Story: First arc was decent enough though I didn't care for how cartoonishly antagonistic some people were but that seems to just be a staple. My real gripe as of where I'm at is the 2nd arc just undoes every aspect of the first arc. Think of it as a an expansion/patch in some cases in a MMO you play WoW or some other game you play. The countless hours you grind trying to get that slot they introduced file is now pointless cause they added a new mechanic/slot in the game that makes that old slot you worked so hard towards ...

Pervy Master Roshi Gets in Trouble With Broadcasting Watchdog

Pervy Master Roshi Gets in Trouble With Broadcasting Watchdog

For many Dragon Ball fans, Master Roshi is an absolute legend! He's one of the coolest and most colorful characters in the Dragon Ball universe. However, this old man has a roaming eye that's easily distracted by the younger ladies, which can lead to more problems than simply a nosebleed.
