Needs more yui or some aliens to beat down.

This is okay, some anime songs don't even break 1K, the song needs more rock.

What is your point?Except having a plot related to music all those 3 anime you mentioned had completely different feelings to them...

My post was a joke....I guess the point that I was trying to make is this medium is now being over saturated with musical slice of life shows but I don't really care since I enjoy 99% of musical slice of life shows out there.
Well,i hate mecha shows but i dont type how every mecha is going to make me feel like Code Geass under any random mecha annnouncement ;_;

Anyways,its not a big deal...Just wanted to point it out...

Meh, I guess I'll give this a chance. Though I wonder why the G in "bang" is capitalized.

Couldn't be any more bland, terrible and generic if it tried.

Pass.

Cute band girls anime? No thanks.

Jul 6, 2016 2:35 PM by ainky

A realistic Show By Rock, oh well I'll watch it.

Jul 6, 2016 2:08 PM by Hoppy

I thought this would be some ecchi harem or some hentai but its just some girl band anime, fuck that!

Jul 6, 2016 2:06 PM by daAmazinFatB0y

pls, geez, don't compare this to k-on.
it's on a different level than k-on. k-on is way better than this.
the only thing i can see in that pv is only one; "cute"
that's all. nothing cool, nothing feels nice with the song unlike k-on.
but that doesn't mean a bad thing. i just don't like it because that's not what i want to see in band especially girls. k-on/ HTT is a perfect example for a girl band. not only cute, heck i don't even see it as a cute girls playing guitar,etc, all i can see was cool looking girl playing guitat,etc as a band. there is cute stuff in it but it more cooler rather than being cute.

tho, i will watch this series but i don't think i can give a 9 or 8 score.
let's just see who stupidly will be making this series....

instead of this, why not kyoani make a short series of k-on about what happen after they all graduate and what happen to azusa since the manga has a little continuation of it.
