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!

I for myself love the plot with the main theme of 'friendship', the cute style and the incredible characters. The music might be repetitive to some people, but I loved listening to the great songs on the end read more

This idol anime has a very good story and its story focuses on a goal, character development (character story) and some random activities. Unlike Aikatsu series, there isn't as much "random activities". I really enjoy the story. The whole goal is to become a Kami Idol or a Divine Idol (Kami means god)

The art is very neat and the colors are really good. Their 3D is also pretty impressive and if you guys watched the first season of Aikatsu, you will know that their 3D was not the best. The 3D in Pripara looks totally different from 1st season Aikatsu.

The music is one of my read more

[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 read more
