The story begins the day before the graduation ceremony. Five middle school girls each are preoccupied with their real everyday lives. These girls meet each other in a fantasy world after being sent there through a sudden occurrence. There, they learn about the impending crisis that this world is facing. The way to avert this crisis is for the five to collaborate and bring their five hearts together as one through dance.

However, the five cannot come to love the world, and cannot tell their true feelings to one another, so their hearts are unable to unite. The time limit is fast approaching. Can the dance of the five girls save the world? And will they be able to graduate?

Expecting this movie to never be subbed, I was ready to give up when out of nowhere a group released fansubs for it! In a state of shock I downloaded the movie and watched it, having only a vague idea of what it even was. I had originally found out about this show after witnessing some impressive clips on animation while browsing random things on sakugabooru, and I decided to watch it because of them, I was not disappointed.

So, what even is this movie then? well it's a fantasy adventure story on the surface, where five girls are transported to a doomed fantasy land and read more

I've just watched Pop in Q in a local anime convention with two friends. Let's say we didn't expect that.

Before listing all the reasons why it was really bad, I have to say that the 3D dance+songs scenes were REALLY good. Not at Love Live's level, but were really fun. I watched all the movie just for these.

And one more thing I have to confess about- The funniest part was making fun of the movie. So if you and a few other friends are looking for stupid stuff just to make fun of it- I guess you can try this movie.

First of all, the movie read more

Pop in Q is nauseating and cringe-worthy, and here's why you shouldn't watch this hidden movie with a similar mindset along the lines of "Damn. Something unpopular with good quality. Must be good.".

The story is under acceptable terms. Isekai shenanigan, meet up with the homeboys, and dance to save the world. However, the characters and CGI are absolutely garbage. Specifically talking about the dolls/puppets seen within the show.

They are punchable. They are annoying. Their presence alone stimulates my evil desire to kill. Just like how a great story can carry lack of quality or how great quality can carry a mediocre story. This anime's read more

Let's start with my final impression of this anime: It would have been much better if it was made into a TV series rather than single movie.

The story is rather simple. As stated in the synopsis, five girls need to dance together in order to save the world. The main focus of this story is rather the character development; the girls to overcome their feelings against their real life so that they will be able to unite and dance together. That, however, was not very well presented.

Much of the light on character development was focused on Isumi, and little on the other characters read more
