The freshly debuted idol group Marginal#4 dreams of delivering their kisses to the end of the galaxy. Composed of Atom Kirihara, Rui Aiba, and the twins L and R Nomura, Marginal#4 aims to reach the top of the idol world, following in the footsteps of Pythagoras Productions' previous idol group, Lagrange Point.

When they aren't performing, however, the boys of Marginal#4 are ordinary high school students. From securing a club room and chasing down missing underwear to filming commercials, their days are packed with various hijinks. As the boys navigate a flurry of events, they try to become shooting star sensations and charm the hearts of their fans, known as the Starclusters.

It's amost like Love Live! and Starmyu got an unwanted child, a very unwanted child.

No but really, I didn't have much expectations for this anime, but despite that it was way more dissapointing than I'd ever imagined.
It had absolutely no storyline whatsoever. It felt like a clutter of some random episodes. And while for some anime it may work, for example Yuru Yuri, it defenitly did not for this one. It doesn't fit the genre.
It defenitly had some potential to become a mediocre guilty-pleasure anime, but it tured out to be a huge dissapointment.

The only thing I kinda liked were some of the ending songs.

Marginal#4 is a hidden gem-- not because of its originality, but its execution.

In a very crowded Idol genre --one anime series being VERY similar to another-- Marginal#4 stands out by being polished and humbled down. The basic premise will attract immediate deja vu (four teenagers being assembled as a new idol unit, with each personnel bearing their own history) however it is pretty wise for the anime to not bring out too many characters, allowing proper character development for the four main protagonists. It must also be noted that the finale is not a complete 23-minute concert like the rest of its peers and the read more

If you're hoping for an idol anime like UtaPri or Love Live, this is definitely not the show for you. If you're ok with it being closer to B-Project or a slice of life, it's definitely worth watching.
Story wise, there's pretty much nothing to this show. It's mainly about the main 4 boys in school or at work (mainly recording CMs and such, not performing shows). What little plot there is is extremely predictable, and often very silly, but enjoyable if you like silly shows.
The animation isn't the best, but it is very good, especially compared to previous Rejet anime. The only downside is occasional read more

I've never written a review before, but after seeing the reviews here, I couldn't help but think I should at least add my opinion. This isn't a romance shoujo anime like Utapri and I really don't think it should be compared to that. As previous comments said, it's more like Tsukipro and Starmyu.

As the others say, the story is kind of all over the place- but isn't that what life is like normally? Honestly, I think it did a good job of just showing cute scenes of what their lives are like as idols, and even though there's not really an overarcing plot line, it's read more
