After being forced to graduate from JPX48 following a controversial incident with a male fan, Ai Narata swears to never interact with another man ever again. Using her talents and strong desire to get away from men, Ai auditions for the exclusive all-female Kouka School of Musical and Theatrical Arts. The school is renowned for producing the best actresses that go on to perform in the famous all-female Kouka Theatre Troupe. Coming from the idol industry, Ai is the perfect candidate for the school's hundredth generation class, but her aloof demeanor alienates her from her classmates.

The eccentric Sarasa Watanabe is the only person who wishes to become Ai's friend. She enters Kouka with the goal of becoming a top "otokoyaku" performer—an actress that plays traditionally male roles. After seeing a Kouka performance of The Rose of Versailles when she was younger, Sarasa dreams of performing as Lady Oscar one day. Unfortunately, Sarasa's inability to read a room causes friction between her and her classmates, including Ai, who reluctantly becomes her roommate and partner in many of their classes.

Succeeding at Kouka will involve more than just raw talent for these young girls as jealousy, deceit, and the harsh realities of show business put their mental fortitude to the test. Will Sarasa and Ai be able to rise to the top and stand on the silver bridge?

Kageki Shoujo is the kind of series that you really dont know if you wanna continue watching after the first episode but after watching a little more, you cant stop!

This anime really focuses on the acting world, the ups and downs the performers go through, their dreams as well as their fears and for some, how hard it is to keep going and not give up. Acting is harder then you might think but what you really see in this anime is how anyone from anywhere can become a star if they truly work for it and put all their time in effort into their ...

It's rare that the character design for anime teaser art catches my attention while browsing. Only four other anime series in the past 10 years have caught attention the way Kageki Shojo!! did from the getgo. And today Kageki Shojo!! adds to my perfect track record of being attracted to the best of the best.

The animation took absolutely no shortcuts. Like none. Every scene, even the silly scenes, is perfectly thought out. I can't even think of another anime that stays this constant with their animation and design. Which fits the entire theme of the show and the actual Takarazuka culture. Perfection.

Every character ...

Mixed Feelings
Kageki Shoujo's story wasn't as gripping as I hoped it to be, however it was enough to carry on and watch until the very end. Honestly, I didn't really hear much sound for the series. It mainly focused on character relationships and developments. It didn't really make me feel as if it was a drama academy. If all else, Ouran High School's Lobelia Girls' Academy was more expressive than the series.

I'd say it was still a pleasant and fair series to boot. At the moment, I'm checking out the manga to see if there's any glaring revisions or how much detail was stripped off ...
