Due to his cheerful personality and ability to smile even through a hard day's work, Kanade Amamiya is suddenly scouted into the idol life by industry legend Haruto Mikami. He joins the agency D-4 Production where he meets fellow high schoolers Shin Oikawa, Junya Sasaki, Itsuki Katagiri, and Chizuru Sawamura, who all aspire to become idols. Inspired by their determination, Kanade embraces this new life.

A perfect chance for his debut appears when they are grouped together to perform at the company's Dream Festival. To rise to the top, they must collect Dorika—cards given by the audience that idols use to form their stage outfits—and gain the audience's attention. However, the road to fame is a rocky one, and the boys must form a bond of friendship and trust before they can reach their goals.

First things first, let's state the obvious: DreamFes is an idol anime based on a videogame, with a sprinkle of magical boys, in 12 episodes. If you've considered that and have your expectations set accordingly - good. We can also get two things right out of the way: it won't win any award for the story or the overall visuals. Personally, I wouldn't call either of those mediocre, in fact in my opinion, the efforts can, at the very least, be seen, and that's enough to rate of both of them above the completely neutral "meh" middle ground.

Ok, so it's an idol anime, what read more

So, first thing: If you are you are going to watch this anime is a MUST that you like boybands, bishonen, why? After all... this anime is about bishonen in a boyband.

If you don't like these two things you can still watch the anime, but you're not their target audiance so I'm sure you're not going to find the same enjoyment as I did,

Let me state the obvious, I LOVE these idol/boyband/bishonen anime but this is a review so I'm goint to do it as it has to be made.

Story: The story is good, is about a group of boys who wants to become read more

Good enough idol anime but with a couple of things thats hampers it to be any better than an ok one and here is why.

Although the story has a nice beginning thats kinda original and the progress through it is done well in its own way it tend to gets dull as it progress. The reason for this isnt necessarily the story itself but the storys content you can say.

The sound is one of those elements i talked about when it comes to a certain downfall of this anime. I find the songs uinteresting and the op and endings arent any better. I mean read more

I decided to write a review before the final episode because the episodes seem to be very consistent in quality and feeling. I gave it an overall 8/10, but personally my enjoyment is 11/10.

Dream Festival! is an anime about a few guys who are hoping to make their debut as idols, their dream is to win the Dream Festival contest. We meet Amamiya Kanade in the first episode, who never even thought of becoming an idol, but through Mikami Haruto's persuasion he accepts the offer. He later on forms an idol unit with Shin, Junya, Itsuki and Chizuru and they become the DearDream unit. Later read more
