Tiara, a princess from the kingdom of Waleland, travels to the city of Mamkestell to attend a prestigious academy for those who practice magic like herself. After passing a test to prove her eligibility, Tiara reunites with her childhood friend Rosetta, who is also a student there. She then joins and meets Rosetta's group: the athletic Lavie, the reliable Ashley, and the bookish Lynette—all of whom Tiara quickly befriends.

In this institution, students are placed into one of three ranks based on their test score: group Noir being the highest, followed by Rouge and Lapis. Tiara's group is ranked Lapis, and if that was not enough, those who fail while ranked Lapis face expulsion. Realizing their dire situation, Tiara urges everyone to start taking their activities more seriously.

On top of this, Tiara has one more purpose for excelling at the academy: to become more like her elder sister, who is a very skilled singer. However, to reach the stage that she desires, she will have to overcome many challenges, along with her companions, as she continues her magical journey.

I’ll say it now, coming from the perspective as someone who doesn’t usually like Idol anime/games: Lapis Re:LiGHTs was surprisingly good.

The only substantial issue present is the VAST difference in quality between episodes, switching from borderline putting me to sleep to downright amazing. As a result, I think I’ll have to discuss them separately in four “sub-reviews”, if you will.

Episodes I & II: 8/10
This series has a very strong start, introducing us to five likeable (albeit somewhat cliche) characters and a promising storyline. Teasers for future backstory plot points regarding Tiara’s sickness and the significance of her- well, tiara, also help to really draw you ...

- A bit of a spoiler from this review

This is my first time watching music idol anime. i watch it 1 episode a day, because i don't feel not as addictive as when watching the action anime genre.somehow in my opinion, the story is very ordinary, and for me the only good in the story is that we know the secret from main character older sister. maybe if they add more story how to heal her older sister maybe that would spice up the story a little.

I like the animation in this anime, its so good to watch, feels like watching a movie. especially when ...

< Concise review >

Oftentimes, when the shows average score highly disagrees with the reviewers, it's the sign of a misunderstood anime. MAL ratings are notoriously unreliable.

However, when it comes to idol anime, this is generally not the case. If anything, you should be even more skeptical of a show when you see this pattern. The producers of idol themed anime know full well that the idol fanbase will gladly eat up poor writing, lazy direction, and cliche ridden garbage so as long as it includes some cute girls singing while wearing cute clothes. Unfortunately, that's exactly what Lapis Re:LiGHTs is. This anime is nothing ...
