In a dystopian future where Japan's political organization has crumbled after the Great Tokyo War, Japan is broken up into 10 independent nations, with each nation controlled by a gang led by a "Best," a human-proclaimed prophet with destructive superpowers. Nozomi Moritomo is a "Rest"—a normal girl that has just started out as a rookie in the local gang. She wants to help the Best Masami Utoku, her childhood friend and role model, in the ongoing territorial dispute.

When Masami becomes severely injured and unable to fight, Nozomi decides to go on a mission to complete the requests sent to Masami from all over Japan. Along the way, she meets Yukina Kosaka, a shy girl with no sense of direction; Ai Hibiki, an upbeat girl who loves eating; and Chiaya Misono, a quiet and mysterious girl that wears a gas mask. Together, the four girls travel all over the country on their motorcycles while getting involved in territorial wars, disagreements, and even suspicious conspiracies.

Rolling☆Girls utilizes music from the late 80s to early 90s punk rock band The Blue Hearts as an influence within the series. The opening and closing songs are covers of The Blue Hearts tracks and several of the episodes are named after songs written by the band.

Personally, I'm really into animation and art, and the style of this show is what got me from the start. If there was one thing that stood out to me for the whole show, it's the musical number in Episode 8. I, personally, enjoy dubbed anime and the song 'Stones' has me utterly hooked. Otherwise, the story was lackluster with no real world-building. It's a great show to watch if you enjoy a fast-paced adventure with a general overarching storyline!

Another note is that the four main characters aren't that well developed. We get a character who idolizes a hero that she can never live up ...

Mixed Feelings
This is the sort of show that will make the optimists out there think something like "I have no idea what's going on, but I'll suspend my disbelief for a bit and see what happens." What happens is that you wind up with your disbelief suspended so high it's somewhere in the stratosphere and yet your patience goes unrewarded.

I'm being harsh. Let's talk about what drew me to this anime. The art is hands down fantastic, with beautiful sprawling surreal settings and pleasing character designs to boot. The first two episodes promise a hilarious and stylized spoof on superheros driven at ...

No spoilers!!! :)

Animation: sometimes pretty, sometimes fluid but always inconsistent and sloppy. I've seen other shows pull off the style they aimed for (like Kill La Kill for example) but they don't even get close to that

1) not a fan of the soundtrack
2) often the songs playing don't match the scenes
3) very good casting and performances from the seiyuus

Kill la Kill: Disrobed and Bare

Kill la Kill seems to stick out with its over-the-top action, visual style, memorable characters, and so on. It pulls no punches, but somehow still keeps itself grounded in many respects. As a whole, Kill la Kill is a fun series for those who aren't bothered by all that skin.
