I happened to find this while browsing 9Anime, and it turned out to be a good, light, cutesy anime.
Suggested age group: 8-12; or anyone who wants a short & cute anime.
Personally, I'm not sure why this has such a low review. I don't think MAL-users put much thought into an anime when they try it out. I do my best to be objective.
With that said, I'd say this is a cute little anime perfect for children. Each episode is half the length of a regular anime show. There's only 5 total episodes. The recap itself takes up some time also.
The general premise is
this: a teenage catgirl goes to Tokyo and is inspired by a chance encounter of a mysterious girl with the voice of a songbird (literally, the girl has wings). After a catching a glowing feather, the melody and moment have become something she is so inspired by, that she can't stop humming the tune. Her best friend encourages her to become a pop idol, and seems to have her mom's support as well.
The rest of the story shows how she meets other very unique and sometimes eccentric personalities during her journey. Her roommate is a natural talent, who inspires her much like the mysterious girl she calls her idol.
As I've said just earlier: ignore the low rating. Just like every book is heavy or light reading, this is on the "light watching" side of anime. I think this is a great little anime that would inspire children to pursue their dreams and work hard to reach their goals. As an adult, I think it's encouraging to see that there's still some positive anime that continue to inspire children. And sometimes I like to watch things like this to appeal to that inner child.
It's not always about how "good" we think something is. I'm just not into that shiny, unrealistically "over-developed" female anime. I look at what an anime accomplishes, and what scenario it would fit in. For the genre and purpose, I would suggest this to people who want something short, sweet, and heartwarming, or to parents who realize their kids like anime.
[Edit] I should also point out that this may be a not-so-subtle advertisement for XFlag's event, XFlag Park 2017, a live entertainment show that was held in early July, 2017. Crunchyroll had an article about it, for those who want to know more and wish to look it up.
