Metropolis of music, MIDICITY. A kitty girl wearing gothic lolita clothing named Cyan is scouted by Maple Arisugawa, the president of a music agency. From there, she meets Chuchu (a pun off of the sound that rabbits make) the honor student rabbit girl, a net geek dog girl named Retoree (from "Retriever"), and an alien sheep (?) girl named Moa. Together, they form the band named "Plasmagica," and aim for the top of the world.

However, the path there is long and tough, and keeping in high spirits is important. By battling against other strange bands, Plasmagica slowly grows toward a top-grade band. In the end, they'll be a band that becomes the driving force of MIDICITY's music industry... Maybe?

Gonna be a music millionaire!

Before you assume I am a SB69 hater, please check my MAL. The first season is listed as my favorite and I truly love this franchise.
The reason why it scored this low, is because of my disappointment.
Yes. I am very, very disappointed in this season. Heck, even the specials had better writing.
Sanrio could've done so much better. I wasn't expecting a solid or deep story, but Show By Rock # was a true trainwreck imo. The plot was all over the place. Whereas S1 had a very clear premise, it seemed like the creators themselves didn't really know where they read more

If you're reading this, you're probably iether have recovered from pancreatitis from the first season and if you don't, please refer to my review of the first season and/or watch the first season since this is a sequel of the first season. Does the second season called 'Show by Rock!!#" really suffer from seasonal rot? Sadly, I'd have to admit it kinda does compaired with the previous season, but it's a no-brainer answer if your anime adaption is based of a mobile rhythm game. It's already impressive for the series to manage in getting a sequal because many anime game adaptations only manage to produce read more

As someone who is a big fan of season 1, and has it as one of their all time favorites, this season was a disappointment, and on top of that, was an unneeded disappointment.

Story: 1/10

The story was a hot mess. The first season already had a large cast of supporting characters, with the majority of them getting barely any screen time, and this season adds even MORE characters with even LESS screen time. Four new bands? CHECK. Like 30 seconds of screen time for all of the characters? CHECK. Giant egg mech? CHECK. (Wish I was joking about this.)

Especially for a 12 episode show, it read more

Hello! Thank you for taking your time to read this review.

Show By Rock!! # is one of those anime where you will feel the absolute cringeworthy scenes yet stay because of whatever reason you have. I don't hate this show, I just feel like the second season was a bit disappointing.

If you watched all of the episodes you will feel a bit disappointment because it didn't end the way we actually wanted. It's like we were expecting something yet it wasn't the one that we were expecting. I will not review it separately because the score is pretty much the same, a 7. They read more
