Having lived abroad in Africa for most of her life, Rinku Aimoto is now returning to Japan to attend Yoba Academy, a school where DJ units—groups made up of DJs, vocalists, and dancers—are extremely popular. There, she meets Maho Akashi, an aspiring DJ who teaches Rinku the basics of DJing. The girls attend a performance by Yoba's famous DJ unit Peaky P-key, and struck by inspiration, they decide to form a unit of their own.

Rinku and Maho soon recruit Muni Oonaruto, a talented artist and Rinku's childhood friend, as well as Rei Togetsu, a shy and caring pianist. Newly named Happy Around, the group aims to use the budding friendships and combined talents of its members to become one of the top DJ units in the country.

The second is my own personal thoughts, as someone who actively works with touring DJs in the EDM scene, on everything related to DJing, like what I think they did right/wrong, as well as what I would’ve liked to have seen.

Okay, to start off with how this show is as a show. I went in not expecting too much at all, pretty much thinking that this would just be another “Love Live!” style ...

Bushiroad is a well-known company among most anime fans, as they are responsible for a decent bulk of music-based anime and rhythm games, some of which include Love Live, BanG Dream, and Project Sekai. Their most recent project is D4DJ, a music-based rhythm game revolving around six four piece DJ units, each with their own unique story and style. Since most of their past projects have gotten anime adaptations, D4DJ was no exception. And after getting hooked on the D4DJ mobile game (I have a rhythm game addiction, don't bully me), I decided to watch the anime (although I was just a little bit late ...

Preliminary (8/13 eps)
I usually tend to not write reviews, because I find it a waste of time. Time that's finite in this life, so I'd rather waste it doing something else. Usually, I find one or two reviews that reflect or are close to my opinion on a series, so I up-vote it and move on. But with this series, there is not a single review below a 7 seriously mates...

The series is over, but I'll try my best not to spoil it too hard, I still advise you to watch it first. Henceforth you're reading at your own peril. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

I'm going to ...
