This anime is based on a 1999 radio drama about three very different girls: Akari, Yuki and Nozomi; going to see the concert of top pop idol Reika and by going to see this concert their lives are greatly influenced by it.

Akari was raised in a very religious background, she is bright and cheerful and a big Reika fan. Yuki is an independent girl who ran away from her home in Hakodate. She is working in the concert hall of Reika's performance. Nozomi is the daughter from a wealthy family in Kobe. She's got one of the VIP seats at the concert.

The three girls are so inspired by Reika's performance, that they all enroll in the Akiba music school and endeavor to become pop idols themselves.

How do you make a predictable anime enjoyable and inspired? Chance Pop Session's answer is to have highly interesting sub-plots that somehow sharpens the main story, incredibly well cast seiyuus and relatable characters. It seems with such a great combo, everything just comes together.

The animation for this title is good but has a couple of kinks. I'll start with ...

Mixed Feelings
Recently watched after buying it on a lark from Rightstuf for super c heap. The cover art on the DVD insert is way WAY more ecchi than the show itself, which was a bit of a disappointment. The one thing that made this show worth watching were the characters and for me personally, the English voice cast from ADV Films. The 3 main heroines are voiced by Kelli Cousins, Hilary Haag & Monica Rial. The story is melodramatic to the point of silly, which is unintentionally funny. It's very much like a an American soap opera plot. The bones ...

I've watched a few anime series about pop artists and singers and enjoyed them, this was not one of them. I decided to finish the series even though the start was very poor and cluttered.

The animation for this series did not help ...

American Studios and Production Committees: Risks and Rewards

In the early-mid 2000s, US licensing companies were involved in numerous anime Production Committees. It didn't go so well for them. This year, several US licensors are trying their luck on Production Committees again. Will it go better this time?
