Yumenosaki Private Academy, a school located on a hill facing the ocean. Specializing in boys' idol training, the school has a long history of producing generations of idols for the entertainment world out of the young men overbrimming with talents, like the shining stars in the sky. Due to "special circumstances," you are a transfer student at the school, as well as the only female student there. In fact, you are chosen to be the very first student of the "producer course," and your task is to produce these idols… We hope you will enjoy your journey with the idols you meet at the academy, as well as the vigorous ensemble that together you will make.

I honestly loved Ensemble Stars. I loved all the characters and ALL of the songs in the show. I never knew it came from a game until finishing the anime and looking more into it. I'll be honest the ending was completely rushed but I'm hoping for there to be more in another season (hopefully) if there is more story in the game.

The show left you with some questions of like Who? What? Where? When? and Why? and they are possibly answered in the game but the game is only available in Japan so it is hard to translate without a guide that doesn't read more

For you to truly love this Anime, you must be obsessed with discovering Anime characters more than anything else in Anime. The story is good but doesn't have much to it, it's normal. However, you will love this anime if you came to love the characters in it. The characters' personalities, and their appearance, meaning the art and the music in it are the strong points of this anime which can make you like it.

Ensemble Stars is not like any other idol's anime, as it focus mainly on some characters' stories, and sometimes a group of characters together, rather than focusing on a definite read more

The difficult part about reviewing this anime?

Depending on whether or not you're already a fan of the games and are familiar with the story and characters, your enjoyment of this anime is likely going to be extremely skewed.

This is already a huge red flag; the anime struggles to stand on its own two feet and functions better as a supplement to the game experience. For people who aren't into mobage, I think the series is going to be pretty forgettable and, unfortunately, fails as a gateway into the franchise.

(To be fair, the anime had 24 episodes to convey what the game had read more

as i long time fan of this franchise i enjoyed this thoroughly, but having read all the story content from the game and manga i know that the anime should have had more episodes, i love the pacing and the adaptation was done well for the episodes but for a game with 5 years of writing behind it 24 episodes was not enough to capture the depth of the true plot, it made it through the main plot and a few of the slightly darker plots, but id love to have seen more time for the event plots that give you a true grasp on read more
