Since she was very young, Kasumi Toyama has always been searching for the "Star Beat", a sparkling and exciting sound she heard while looking up at the night sky. Just after getting into high school, Kasumi comes across a "star-shaped guitar" in the storage area of an old pawn shop. Feeling a rush and excitement she has never felt before, Kasumi teams up with four other girls and embarks on a journey to seek out the shiny place. We promise to perform a live here!
BanG Dream! is about a girl that search for something “shiny”, that can make her heart beat faster. One day, she finds a trail of shiny stars that lead her to some kind of storage in a house, when opening the door of it she sees a “random star”, a type of guitar, and she thinks that she found her “shiny thing”. She decides to start a band and starts to gather other girls to help her pursue her dream of playing in a live house.
Story (7) - It not has an extravagant plot, nothing deep involved, but it's still good.
(8) - The art is good, and you can see that they put a lot of effort in their eyes, they are really beautiful and probably the only thing different from other anime's art, the rest is pretty normal.
Sound (9) - After finishing the first episode, it's almost impossible to not go look for “Don't be afraid”, however if you don't like Pop Rock or J-POP you may not really enjoy the soundtrack like me and the rest of the show will probably turn out to be annoying to you. For Heaven's sake even her singing "Twinkle twinkle little star" turns out to be good.
Character (5) - The characters follow their type of "dere" unconditionally. Like the story, the characters don't add much, they all are pretty normal.
Enjoyment (6) - I enjoy this show even though it has a lot of flaws, and nothing much interesting, it's good to know that I can come home and watch such a calming show, but it's not always that you're in the mood for it.
Overall (7) - In this season, you can find quite some musical anime, unfortunately I can't say that “BanG! Dream” has a different plot from them, there's nothing new being added in this, we don't have our “shiny thing” in this anime. But, for being so normal, it makes you feel good watching, because you know that things will end up working out. No one will die, the fights will be over by the end of the episode, and they will get to live their dreams.
Here Comes Another Music Extaraveganza …
Just as always this anime revolves around a bunch of girls who gets into music that is finds their soul of universe !! well the main female protagonist oh there are only females no males well wanted to find something sparkly and shiny and finally find that in music and a guitar well so she goes on a hunt to recruit members to form a band !!
and slowly with effort and luck of course she gets to pull of members … and so the long story starts !! Well they all want to bang their dreams to reality
and that’s what the anime revolves around …The characters are of all types some entersting yet some generic and some the usual !!
Well the story is slow to be honest … it’s a sweet but slow story sometimes it gets cute sometimes good sometimes boring and sometimes irritating and sometimes repetitive so it’s a mood changer … it all depends on how you are watching it and whats your mood !!
Oh and since it’s a music anime the music counts a lot too but let me tell you that they have covered this aspect of their anime good … the sound tracks are good not the best nor one of the best but good enough for 1 one to enjoy !!
