On February 13, as snow flurries dance in the air, a new idol unit is born at Pythagoras Production. They are the idols who will deliver their kiss to the ends of the galaxy: "Marginal #4." Its members, Atom Kirihara, Rui Aiba, L Nomura, and R Nomura, put all their effort into their entertainment career for the sake of the fan supporting them! They continue to mature as idols along with the senior unit pulling the entertainment industry forward, Lagrange Point, and the younger unit preparing to make their debut, Unicorn Jr. But when they step off the stage, they're ordinary high school boys with some chaotic student lives!

This is the tale of Margninal #4, a school slice-of-life about idols that shine brighter than the stars.

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.

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

Marginal 4 is your typical idol show. It incorporates little character, story and animation and instead decides to focus all of its efforts on good music, which surprisingly pays off. I’ve never been a fan of boy idol groups but the opening song is incredibly fun to listen to and I even occasionally catch myself humming to it.

Most of the episodes are full of what feels like filler; basically lengthening out the show till it is ‘anime length’ before playing a short song. These songs are really the only content within the anime I enjoy however it is the most important content to be interesting.

If you really enjoyed Uta No Prince-Sama and expected this to be like it, you're going to be disappointed.

The story is practically non-existent. It's the story of 4 high school boys that became a band, and each episode demonstrates a totally different aspect of the anime every time. It's pretty inconsistent, and I never knew what to expect next episode (in a bad way).

The characters are very 2D and stereotypical. They try to create character development, but it doesn't work out well for them as the series progresses.

Since this is a primarily music anime, the music and sounds for it aren't too bad. read more
