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.

Ok, so it's an idol anime, what ...

For all of my prior reviews, I never took concern regarding the seiyuu's performance (voice talent) because they always made it seem so easy regardless of the material. Unfortunately, there is always a first for everything and for my review on Dream Festival!, the greatest issue --for the first time ever-- lies on the seiyuu.

Especially for idol genre, the performance of the seiyuu becomes more vital than ever because it would take a different kind of muscle. As it is about singing, the speaking dialogues must be well-synchronized with their respective character's artistry and inner turmoils. Additionally, just like artists in real life, the idols ...

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.

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 ...
