Synopsis

A Cinderella story of sorts, Fashion Lala stars a little girl named Miho who doesn't get along with her family. Miho loves to design clothing, but her aunt and three cousins don't believe that such a young girl is capable and mock her designs. Meanwhile, a contest for the new "Disco Queen" is coming up, and Miho wants nothing more than to be able to design a dress for someone to wear to the competition, since she's too young to enter herself. With determination and a little bit of magic, Miho's dreams just might come true!

I would like to write to you about how Harbor Light is a touching Cinderella-like story where a young girls dreams come true due to her determination and hard work. I would like to say that Harbor Light is a nostalgic piece that will remind you of the glorious decade of the 80s, where leotards, legwarmers, disco, and the moonwalk reigned supreme. I can’t say any of those things because this anime sucks.

Whatever you read on MAL regarding this anime plot summery is not accurate. Yes it’s about a young girl named Miho, you won’t ever forget her name because it’s written read more

Harbor Light Monogatari - Fashion Lala Yori is a slap in the face to pretty much all common sense in story telling. From the opening you can tell this anime is having a serious identity crises. The opening consists of assorted jumble of scenes from 1980’s jazzercise to some really fairly odd science fiction space shots. This mishmash pretty much sums up a lot of this anime as it tries to mesh together a whole lot of things that just don’t work. It also features more conflicting moods then a temperamental two year old.

On one hand you have a pseudo Cinderella read more

Wow... what a disappointment. I really thought it was going to be a cool OVA, but it's bad.

It could have developed a much better story in those 48 minutes of length, but...
I already lost hope when Miho was almost run over bad in a very imbecilic way. But since there was only 30 minutes to go, I watched it to the end.

The story is pretty bad, and I will mention everything that I found shitty.
The story has no focus, and everybody seems to dislike Miho, except Shuri. It could very well unfold the plot with Miho getting to be a designer for the contest instead read more

I recently heard a friend describe this anime as conflicting with it’s internal parts, but I disagreed. I felt everything worked together well to produce a single narrative. The point of the OVA is all in the end, which I still find playing in my mind from time to time. When the magic happens, it gives a huge payoff for everyone involved, and it does so without words, which I thought was magnificent.

The entire town was consumed by the father’s greed, which caused backlash. Meanwhile, a cute loli being abused can still have beautiful thoughts, and saves everyone by becoming a magical idol. It’s as read more
