Ren Nanahoshi is a lonely college student who isn't good at communicating with others. He remembers the thrill of watching a live band perform when he was young, and spent most of his days searching for his own identity. One day, while singing karaoke alone, two boys named Yuuto and Wataru discover Ren's singing ability. The two agree: "This is fate. Let's start a band!" Ren promptly runs away, but fate indeed steps in, and their journey begins.

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.

Other than the ending, I love everything else.

First things first: I really don't know anything about bandori. Like, sure, it's big music franchise, but apart from that - literally nothing at all. Whatever could be gathered from any other source that exists out there... great, probably. For me though, there's only this anime.

It's unfortunate that if I have to sum it up in one word, that word is "unfortunate". I don't mind uncommon methods, like the CG we had here for pretty much the whole series: personally I'm used to it, and indeed considering the genre it just fits. Granted, at times it could have been better, there were moments where it read more

First of all I need to tell that I'm a follower of the Argonavis franchise, so thats can make my opinion a little blursted about this anime. However there are some points where I need to focus on.

At the beginning, the story focuses on the origin of the main band, which was a good idea indeed, but the way they portrayed it was, in my opinion may I say that I found it a bit rushed? The same goes for when they made the songs, I feel it was more fast that I would like.

Another point it's that the way that's was shown the feeling read more

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 read more
