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.

"Guru Guru DJ TURN!! (ぐるぐる DJ TURN!!)" by Happy Arround!

Do you like good music and cute girls? Do you love the bands from “BanG Dream!”? If so, then D4DJ is the perfect anime for you!
Bushiroad is a very well-known name in the mobile gaming industry, the team brought us "Love Live!", "BanG Dream!" or also "Shoujo Kageki Revue Starlight". "D4DJ" is their new project which includes different DJ groups who want to be in the big spotlight one day as well.

What's the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “DJ”?
I always associate this term with people like "David Guetta", "Alan Walker" or "Avicii" (R.I.P, you were a legend). ...

Today I'll be giving my thoughts on Bushiroad's newest media project after BanG Dream!, D4DJ First Mix. This show is really great, and I'll get into why it's so great in this review. Let's get into specifics.

Story: 6
Since MyAnimeList hasn't really done a proper synopsis of this show, I'll do it myself. The show follows a high school girl named Rinku, who has just recently moved back to Japan after living in Africa for years. The high school she attends, in a deviation from the standard music-centric anime, is big on DJs rather than idols. Rinku becomes enamored with DJing, meeting an unpopular DJ at ...

D4DJ is a multimedia project I have been following for a bit less than a year before the TV series started, my excitement towards the anime was huge, and I'm really happy to say that not only it was nice, but it also surpassed my expectations.

This anime follows the cheerful Rinku and her new (and not that new) friends as they form a DJ unit in a school very heavily focused on that activity (the funds spent on that big-ass beautiful building and all the rooms with equipment to do DJ performances must have been crazy). As the episodes pass, they will meet new rivals ...
