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

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

I'm writing this before watching ep 12 (hasn't come out yet).


I gave the story a 9/10. Within moments of the first episode, I had a feeling it was based off of a game, and I was sure of it by the first performance. When it comes to their dances/performances, it's all very confusing. The fans have these card holders where they shoot out strange 'Dorika' and choose the clothing of the performers, which was very strange. But that's pretty minor.

The story itself, I think, is pretty well done. There were some moments that were very cliche and I could easily call, but read more
