Ren Nanahoshi has been chasing a certain thrill he once experienced at a live festival when he was a child. Now, as a first-year university student, he avoids making friends and practices singing by himself, hoping to find that adrenaline once more. A fateful encounter at a karaoke bar allows Nanahoshi to meet Yuuto Goryou and Wataru Matoba—both of whom are impressed by his voice. The two have been searching for band members, and they want Nanahoshi to be their vocalist.

Nanahoshi initially rejects their constant pestering but relents after attending their live show and performing alongside them. Joined by the carefree Rio Kikyou and passionate Banri Shiroishi, the five boys form "Argonavis" and set their sights on headlining the Destiny Rock Festival. As they begin to work together as a band, they come across the trials and tribulations that come with pursuing stardom.

Enjoyment 9

Overall 9

For starters I have not played the game this anime is based on, nor have I really gotten into the BanG Dream! merchandise. I love idol animes so I tend to compare to my favourites (like Utapri or Starmyu). However I give every anime a fair chance to shine on their own.

The characters and environment are obviously done with the 3D model technique, which is a problem with me and many others too. There were some times that were animated "normally", which I found a bit weird. I would prefer a bad animation through the normal events and cgi only on stage - not ...

I'm someone who is really generous in giving grades to anime that I have watched. For this anime:

Story: 9
Character: 9
Art: 8
Enjoyment: 9

I love musical-themed anime, so obviously I love this one as well. I love listening to bands plus the songs they used and their vocals, I love them all.

I would have rated this 10 if the ending was satisfactory, for me at least. It would have been better if they added few more episodes, like few other anime do, have like a summary or what will happen to them in the future.

Mixed Feelings
I'm anticipating the project since 2018. But when the anime started airing, and as the story progress to the end of the show, I just stood there watching and say "Meh, could be better".

Story: 5/10
Pacing issue. Soap-opera conflict that shouldn't happen because Bushiroad advertise this as more mature bandori (i.e. the conflict is more deep than the girl band). I honestly, didn't think so. It's just bland and feel too rushed. Probably because this feels more like an advertisement towards the game rather than actual trying to make people feel good about it. Let's just pray the game storyline could save this anime ...
