As preparations begin for Seishou Music Academy's yearly Seishou Festival, the girls of the 99th class are gearing up to perform their very own rendition of Starlight, the tragic tale of two goddesses drawn together by the glow of the heavens but destined to be pulled apart, never to meet again. Created to foster the next generation of theatrical talent, this girls' only school works to improve the singing, acting, and dancing skills of its students.

One student is 16-year-old Karen Aijou, an easygoing girl who has dreamed of performing on stage since she was a child. Her love for theater is further invigorated when her childhood friend Hikari Kagura transfers to Seishou Academy. Through her old friend, Karen stumbles upon a secret elevator leading to a massive theater underneath the school. Hosted by a talking giraffe, this arena serves as a battleground where her classmates participate in duels to determine who among them deserves the title of "Top Star," earning them the right to play one of the lead roles in Starlight. Emboldened by the promise she made with Hikari to someday be stars together, Karen enters these mysterious battles in the hopes of making their dream a reality.

There are a lot of things to love about this series that are pretty straightforward. I think the music is consistently strong, there's pretty great fight choreography throughout (as might be expected of one large stage show), there's an investing plot to follow that takes some intriguing twists and turns, and since there's a central aim from everyone to become the "Top Star," there's a really good central conflict that keeps things interesting.

Even on parts of the series I didn't particularly love at first glance - the relative safety the girls experience in these fights with bladed weapons, the mostly predictable sets of fights ...

The first thing you have to understand is that the anime is meant to be a critique on the Takarazuka Revue’s ‘Top Star’ system. The theater company had a significant influence on anime and otaku culture, inspiring greats like Osamu Tezuka to create the similarly influential Ribon no Kishi, and Ikuhara, a director whose style you may recognize in the show itself. The link to Takarazuka is even clearer when you consider the series first premiered, so to speak, as a musical directed by Kodama Akiko who had experience doing the same for some productions from the company. In theory, with such a rich, alluring ...

"This whole anime felt like drinking lukewarm water. "

I went into this with no expectations really. The art looked good and I needed something to watch that was dubbed so I could work while watching it. Despite the lack of expectations it still managed to fail them. The single reason I finished this show was because I didn't want to bother to go out looking for something else.

This anime is a mix of a bit penguindrum in the way is has absurd things happen that aren't really meant to be taken literally but also aren't completely metaphorically. And a bit of Madoka Magica almost exactly ...
