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.

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.

If you wanted to see this show because of Ongaku Shoujo circle... forget it. Just forget it. This one is a regular idol anime and nothing other than that. Watch the "movie" version instead, it's much better, shorter, and contains a semblance of Taishi works.

If you came here because you expected an idol anime... I guess it's ok? Can't complain about art, can't complain about music if you can handle the regular jpop. The storyline is just as bad as everywhere else in this genre. Honestly, the show itself is rather boring.

I highly recommend the original Ongaku Shoujo circle all of this originated from, however. read more

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. When the read more
