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.

First I have seen many different idol aime's and this one threw me for a curve. Right off the bat some of the characters have opposing characters to their look. Something you don't see everyday. The music like most idol shows was catchy and fun but they have variety not the same song all 12 eps. as for the performances i don't like the 3d dancing very much but the music made me forget about that animation for the most part. You definitely see all the characters grow in some way very typical focus on one character each ep but continue the many theme.

In the last few years, we've seen more and more idol anime being produced. I'm a big fan of this genre, so I was looking forward to Ongaku Shoujo, but I'll admit it did fall a little short of my expectations.

Story: Compared with other idol anime I've seen, such as AKB0048 and the Love Live! series, the story felt forgettable to me. Like with LL, there is an end goal for the group (headlining an arena show with 10,000 fans), but in some of the middle episodes this was referred to so sparingly that I forgot it was actually a plot point.

I enjoyed this anime up until the last three or so episodes. Essentially the cry-me-a-river Uori bit. Your voice goes out and suddenly you're the pity party of the century? Get the fuck over yourself.

The whole on-stage fighting/making up thing was also annoying. I get that they were going for some raw emotion to bring the group together, but doing it in that particular setting is so unprofessional. If I were in that crowd, that could have been one of my favorite bands from when I was a teenager up on stage, and I'd still leave if they had some weird fight/non-fight thing happening on read more

There are 11 girl idols in this j-pop band anime and there are also 11 reasons to watch the show

1) Roro's introduction is magnificent in every sense of the word. She walks onto the screen with plate full of salt like (s)he is that guy from tv shop who is on the phone and accidentally flips over this 7 gallon bowl full of ships on the floor. Roro does this same thing, except the salt ends up in some dudes eyes. Epic.

2) There is this girl who wears glasses, but the glasses don't actually have lenses. However, this is only shown once in the read more
