There are eleven girls that consist the C-class Ongaku Shoujo idol unit under Pine Records. Despite generating red sales marks and not being very popular, Producer Ikebashi and the members are trying their very best to up their levels. Nevertheless, Ikebashi suggests recruiting a new member for Ongaku Shoujo; someone who can act as a catalyst for the success of the group. Thus, an audition was opened, leading to the soon-to-be legendary group's meeting to a girl named Hanako.

When the ...

I have seen my fair share of music related shows now and since music has a big part in my life, I feel pretty passionate about shows that tackle the idea. Here is another idol anime. That isn't necessarily a bad thing. I love Love Live but I know not everything is going to live up to that. What I didn't expect was for an idol show to fall so below the standard that I felt necessary to rant about it (check the episode 12 discussion). This is why Music Girls was one of the worst shows I have ever seen.
