Well and wraps it up. Sonico singing to the audience. Why does she always wear headphones? The world may never know

Well, if anything, the audience listening to her song loves it.

That was a nice concert for the girls. They had some issues before the concert started, so glad that it worked out in the end. Enjoyed watching this anime. It really does have a relaxing feel to it when you watch the different episodes.

I would have never thought that this show would be the feel good anime of the season. I thought it would be something very different, but I was pleasantly surprised about how it turned out.

That was a good ending. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would, seemed like a crappy fanservice show at start but it ended up being a relaxing SoL.
Sonico's trip was my favourite episode.
Overall, OK.

Finally a concert :D

"Mr. Internet-san" That made me laugh a bit for some reason :p

Broken string that sucks :/

Grandma can rock on too, now we know where Sonico get's it from ;)

What is up with that blonde-haired girl? We never did find out anything about her.

A pretty good finale.

So we never got to know why she always wears headphones.

This was a pretty decent anime.

Fuuri was the best character throughout the series.

That was a surprisingly relaxing show, really liked it all the way through (although ep 6 really sucked though).

I'm gonna go as far as to give this an 8.

I laugh at those reviews or people who share a similar view point who whining about the boobs and fanservice scattered throughout the series. Apparently the people who genuinely hated this show have never seen or heard of Super Sonico before this anime. She's a poster girl. Take one second to look at any figure every released of Sonico...

Again, I laugh at what exactly you were expecting. Although this wasn't some stellar work of animation it was a pretty decent show. Sonico and crew are wet matches in a dark cave but it is a feel good show. I like how they didn't reveal anything either. Sonico always had her headphones on and they never disclosed her seiyuu.

Not mentally stimulating, not overly entertaining, but a warm and pleasant show with good music. It'll either be a 6 or 7.

Also I enjoyed how they closed with Sonico's first actual CD single which happens to be one of my favorite songs before Galaxy One album came out.

This show was cute. Clearly not one of the best but I enjoyed it. Sonico is adorable, the animation quality was quite good but it has lack of plot.
Anyway, it was decent. 6/10

Indeed I also didn't expect too much from this, but this definitely turned out to be a relaxing fun feel good splice of life anime. It's a shame when a lot of people look at Sonico they judge her based on the various amounts of modeling/ecchi pictures and worse the Doujinshi's of her. I've been watching this next to Hajime no Ippo, and Wake up girls and I gotta say between the three This and Hajime no Ippo has been my favorites, at least unlike wake up girls the art quality hasn't looked derpy not once, which shows something.

Loved how Sonico's Grandmother's Guitar song was the main theme from the PC SONICOMI game. Now I just have to check out the new Sonico video game for the PS3.

One more thing, I wonder why they didn't properly showcase Super Pochaco, we've seen her all over the anime, and it was pretty obvious who she was supposed to be, but they just kept her as a silent background character......Sequel hook?

I was wondering the same thing.

The anime was really relaxing and it was fun to watch it. Too bas a lot of people give bas reviews and ratings.
The final episode was good and a nice concert ^_^

Good opening song.

No real story overall (wasn't expected much/anything good anyways).And a horrible protagonist (probably worse than a reverse harem lead) 3/10.

Good ending song too.

It was an okay series overall. What I would love to see though is a prequel series focusing on Sonico's grandmother during her teenage days.

This turned out GREAT! Honestly, I almost dropped it after the first three episodes (which I thought were pretty boring). But thankfully I watched on.

I'd love to see another season. Or at least a couple of OVAs. I'd love to see more interaction between the girls and Kyouko Tomano (and more on the guitar itself) and Sayaka (the reporter), who I adored.

wow... what a finale. AMAZING concert scenes. VERY solid final episode. the episode really tells me that you dont need a big production budget backed by sponsors when holding a concert. indie bands survive with communities and friends. it's also so cool to see how sonico's grandmother was quite the star herself when she was younger. goes to show how unique some people can be. you never know who they are/were.

nonetheless, good series. that episode with sonico traveling alone was probably my favourite episode throughout all the anime this season. and this finale has definitely set the bar for best finale this season.

7/10. it did its job as a slice of life.

I think I got a nose bleed when the grandma was playing lol.

It was a good series, it was relaxing and it's not that bad in my opinion. I think episode 7 was my favorite.

7/10, it was good.

In all honesty, it was better than the likes of K-ON. More interesting.

This was a great ending episode!!!

I liked all the songs they performed particularly with the last one 'Super Orbital!' and it was a great episode to wrap everything up involving nearly all the character that were involved in the series. I'm glad they actually did that as it creates a satisfying feel to it. I think I saw some new characters with that blonde girl and her friend and Kyouko-senpai makes another appearance this time with her child.
You got to like Sonico's Grandma when she covered up for her when her strings broke and it was nice to see her back in her youth days for a brief moment.

Overall this was a satisfying series and this last episode impressed me and so therefore has increased my rating for it. Some episodes were average but the majority of it created a nice relaxing feel to it. Characters were interesting and I would say this series has fulfilled that. Like I said before, I'm glad they didn't just forget the side characters from all episodes and that they actually took the right amount of time into consideration so therefore was a very good final episode. The CG and the special effects used for the songs and the live show were well initiated.

Final Scores:

Art/Animation: 9/10
Plot/Story: 7/10
Characters: 8/10
Music: 9/10
Overall Score: 8/10

Episode Rating: 5/5

I dunno if it was just me but i was hoping during the credits that we would see Pochaco go towards Sonico's manager and become a model like her while the music was playing in the background and maybe show scenes of her introducing herself to Sonico. Though i can understand why she's mute because she's only appeared in Illustrations with Sonico and some appearances in this Anime. If a Season 2 does roll around, it would be exciting to see who Pochaco's VA would be!

I'm very satisfied with this Anime! I'm been a huge Sonico fan for a year now and i was excited to watch this Anime and the final result, i was highly satisfied and happy! The series doesn't deserve the reviews it gets, it's much more then that. :3

What a way to rap up a mixed reviewed anime. I thought the ending was great and should have been more of the focus point of the whole series but all's well that ends well....

That episode wrapped it up quite nicely. Overall, it wasn't great, some episode were completely miss to me, other were from okay to good. To me it's at least a passing grade (5 or 6).

This anime changed Sonico from one of my favourite characters to a character I don't like that much anymore. I hope they will not do a vocaloid anime.
Overall this anime wasn't that bad but pretty boring :/

This episode acted more of a "wow, look at all the support characters I don't recognize!" Sonico was a slow, easy-going SOL, but it was way too dull.

5 is the average of 10, 3/10, below average.

This last episode was actually very cool and pretty. It doesn't completely make up for the rest of the series. As I mentioned in the other episodes' threads, I thought the series was gonna be more fanservice-oriented but we ended up with an OK-ish SoL. As a fan of Sonico, I can say that the best thing in the anime was the music.

6/10 overall.

5/10, bland yet infectious. Those first three episodes really hurt this one for me personally. This show works better without the heavy ecchi and it didn't seem like they figured that out until after the first couple of episodes. Episodes 4, 5, and 7 were pretty nice to watch. Music in the finale was enjoyable.

Ha, am I the only one who heard Immigrant Song playing in Sonico's restaurant? Seems like it's in everything nowadays.

Pretty decent episode I guess... was gonna give the series a 5, but after this episode I guess I'll raise it to a 6/10. Most satisfying part of the episode was that Sonico's rolemodel showed up... and she even has a kid! :O

This was the only episode I liked.

And let' be honest here. Music like this isn't dead, but it is in a state of limbo, where bands and good music still exist, but are overshadowed by so many flashes in a pan that are huge one moment and are gone the next. Rock music that actually featured musicians putting in their part for an actual band that has a name that acknowledges everyone in it (as opposed to what music is today, where the focus is mainly the one person in the spotlight while the rest of the people playing instruments remain nameless and overshadowed) is only found underground with independent music and no longer showcased as talent people want to see. Only exceptions are bands that are heavily electronified that take priority over the rest of the musicians except the singer.

Now take the grandmother. With her playing in combination with Fuuri's drum solo, that alone was enough to fill me with enough emotions that no Bruno Mars song could ever match. I mean it wasn't any Cliffs of Dover, but it's a lost art that I honestly wish can be brought back to spark some purpose in today's music.

So I've always loved the music aspect of the show, but the story was too meh and/or ditzy for me. I just hope the music kinda opened some thought to that style once again.

The final episode was well-directed and was a nice cap to a pleasant but mixed season. When the episodes were good, they were quite good... but when they were bad (like the zombie episode)... well... that sort of drags the overall score down. This finale was a very enjoyable mix of music and a look-back at the season, bringing back all the characters and locales.

I really loved the in-joke about Sonico’s grandmother... “No... she was our goddess!” (megami) Super-appropriate for the grandmother’s seiyuu, Kikuko Inoue!

Pretty nice ending for this series I must say, some really nice songs and a nice way to showcase every character seen in the entire show! I must say I didn't expected all too much from this series but I actually quite enjoyed the casualness of her life and especially the funny moments and the various lovely characters!

All by all a pretty good anime! 7/10
