Kasumi Toyama and the members of Poppin'Party—their high school band—are now second-year students, but with the new school year comes their latest set of challenges: student council duties, cram school, and part-time jobs, among other things. Furthermore, they are now separated into different classes, and as a result, their free time together is shortened. Looking back, their joyful times together seem like nothing more than an unachievable fantasy when their members are too occupied to even gather in Arisa Ichigaya's basement for practice sessions. As the band ponders over the situation, an unfamiliar girl suddenly emerges, unknowingly pulling them into the spotlight once more.

In this rising era of girl bands, Afterglow, Pastel*Palettes, Roselia, and Hello, Happy World! begin to make their appearance as well. Each band, comprised of musicians with their unique personalities, illuminates the stage with its performances. As Poppin'Party returns to the music scene and encounters new friends, the sparkling, heart-pounding music starts to play once again!

One thing that I want to note is that you DO NOT have to watch Season 1 of the anime, or have to had played the mobile game (BanG Dream! Girls Band Party!) in order to enjoy this series. But, the full derivation of enjoyment will undeniably be obtained only if you've done the aforementioned. It enables you to treasure the characterization/seiyuu references of the main characters that are scattered throughout the episodes — namely Poppin'Party and a few newly introduced characters.

The first few episodes serve as an introduction to the viewers who are unfamiliar with the characters from the mobile game, with the ...

Mixed Feelings
Bang Dream! is a pretty okay tier. I played their game and watched their anime. For someone wanted to watch this series. I guess it's not that bad to watch.

Plot 5/10:
The same, nothing is so much that standout. But more groups and running out of the idea. Also the graph for the main plot is a bit like function graph which means the starting was very nonsense completely full of fanservices in my opinion I don't like it so much, It's just not from the artist himself but for fans themselves.

Story 5/10
The story is a little bit worse because poorly made 3D but accurate. Also ...

First, let me get one thing straight: the first season was a goddamn masterpiece. The characters were awesome, the plot was heart-wrenching, and the art/sound design was beautiful in spite of its unfortunately low budget.

People who are fans of the franchise tend to say they love it, but I can't. For the most part, it's unoriginal and lazily produced.

Let's start with the plot. The show starts off ...
