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.

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
You want an Idol anime like UtaPri or Dream Festival that is really flashy? Not thw idol show you are looking for.

This one is more like TsukiPro and B-Project, you have a slice of life together with them being idols, actually, is the first idol anime I see that they really go to normal school.


There isn't one, you have 4 boys that are in a group, the anime tells a little about each one, but not too much to get you really attached to any of them, and they are idols. It's a real slice of life with them going to school, doing club stuff ...

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.
