Ino Sakura has just moved to Tokyo to join the newly formed Fruit Tart, an idol group composed of three members besides herself—Roko Sekino, a washed-up child actor; Hayu Nukui, a failed musician; and Nina Maehara, a model who is still waiting for her first gig. They soon begin their new life together in their dormitory, the Mouse House. But there is no time to get settled as the girls awaken to a shocking reality: Fruit Tart is in a deep debt of one hundred million yen and has not even started yet!

With the possibility of Fruit Tart breaking up and the Mouse House being torn down if they cannot repay the money, the girls must work their way up from the bottom of idol society by making a name for themselves and writing their own songs. Luckily, Hemo Midori, an experienced idol, is a huge fan of Sakura and decides to join the group. With smiles on their faces, Sakura and the other girls work hard to become popular idols while making sure that each day is as fun as the last.

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!

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (4/12 eps)
Ochikobore Fruit Tart, or as I am going to call it for the sake of this review, Idol Dropout is the story of a failing group of Idols. From the episodes I've seen so far, the story seems kind of generic and bland which makes me question why I keep coming back to it every week. I've seen a couple of idol anime and this one by far stands out the least.

I will continue to stick with this anime until the end to see if it gets any better, and if it does, I will update this review, otherwise heres a list of other idol ...

As a massive idol fan, the premise of OchiFuru intrigued me. The only other "unpopular idols" anime I had seen before this was Ongaku Shoujo, which was terrible in its own right. But I had hoped that OchiFuru would change my mind about this niche of idol anime.

No. OchiFuru is a dumpster fire. I am one who believes that fiction should not be held to the same moral standards as reality, so ecchi typically does not bother me. But when I'm watching a music/idol anime I expect singing, dancing, a little bit of friendship building, and the occasional gaybaiting. OchiFuru is almost entirely fanservice of ...
