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.

It always blows my mind when I start a new series and poof, no review! How on earth will I decide whether I want to watch it or not? Well no matter, I will say Chance Pop Session from the desolate world of no-review land.

I'd been wanting to see this anime for some time now, ever since I saw a scene on Youtube that was easily the sweetest clip ever. After two weeks of life kicking my butt, it was time. And my timing was just about perfect. This is the show you want to come home to after a bad day. At some read more

Since this title just recently got a re-release I figured I'd give it a watch. It was very much worth my time. The story is good for the most part. Its just as the other reviewer said. Everyone should know how the story will play out ahead of time. Luckly, the way that it does is entertaining enough.

The art on the other hand...Is barely serviceable I thought this show was made in the late 90's and then I come to learn it was actually 2001? How is this possible? Why don't music shows by Madhouse productions read more

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.
Overall the story was poorly done and predicable for the most part. The plot left very little to be desired and most anyone could guessed the outcome after just 4 episodes. Character development was very poorly executed and left the characters seeming shallow. Also, the background stories left some of the main characters unlikable by the end of the series.
The animation for this series did not help read more

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.
What also makes it so good is that it never drags on with the story or any of the situations so much that it puts you off. Instead, those stories are so well put together that you really feel the impact of the anime as a whole.

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

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?
