Fourth dormitory of the Rat Production (commonly known as Nezumi-sou)—the place where dropout idol girls live: the former child actor Sekino Roko, musician Nukui Hayu, and model Maehara Nina. Sakura Ino, who always dreamed of becoming an idol, moves in. At the same time, the decision is made to demolish the dormitory. Due to the project launched by the manager Kajino Hoho, "Ochikobore Fruit Tart," occupants of the dormitory form a new idol group called "Fruit Tart" and start their activities in order to repay a one hundred million yen debt.

This is the journey of an idol group called "Fruit Tart", on a mission to repay a huge debt of 100,000,000 yen!

If you have watched Hanayamata before, you'll noticed some similarity between this and Hanayamata in terms of animation and character design. The reason is Ochikobore Fruit Tart's creator, Hamayumiba Sou is also the creator of Hanayamata which explains the similar vibe between the two anime. If you have enjoyed Hanayamata before, then you might enjoy this anime. But before that let's go with the details in the anime!

You like fruits, love idols and enjoy listening to cheerful music? Then Ochikobore Fruit Tart (or in short OchiFuru) is the perfect anime for you!
There is no question that the idol genre is booming at the moment. We could already watch in the summer season 2019 a wonderful CGDCT (Cute Girls Doing Cute Things) story with "Re: Stage! Dream Days ♪", where our girls gave everything to become successful idols and win the competition.

I could not be happier that I did. Every single week I was blown away by how genuinely hilarious this show is. The girls are great and there’s a girl for every type of taste in the show. The antics that the girls get up to never read more

A show doesn’t have to be complex or meaningful to be good. Sometimes all you need are some endearing characters and a whole bunch of fun and silly setups and it can create an amazing show that’s a complete joy to watch. And that’s basically Fruit Tart. While Fruit Tart may not have the same level of development or depth that other top tier CGDCT have, it does make up for it by being unique and having a lot of fun.

The premise of Fruit Tart is simple, you have a couple of rejects and put them together into an idol group. There they try read more
