Oh lord, I'm only writing this review because I think it deserves an analysis from someone who has actually SEEN the Pretty Rhythm series from start to finish. If you're going to start this anime on its own, just know it means you're practically watching the 2nd half of a finale and have no business doing a review based on that alone.

So where do you start? Tl;dr 1) watch two movies: 'King of Prism by Pretty Rhythm' and 'King of Prism: Pride the Hero' first THEN this one.
2) For best experience, watch Pretty Rhythm: Rainbow Live first, it has a female cast but ...

Hoshiai no Sora starts off seemingly as a light sports anime focused on soft tennis with the generic "save our club from disbanding" trope and the one MC who becomes the key to saving the club. It is exactly that, but the sports part of the story acts as a complement to the unique family problems that ALL the members of the club face at home which is obviously unrealistic (abuse is real, but happy parents are too), but since that's literally the theme of the anime so you just have to roll with it.

While the main theme are the social issues underlying each ...

Mixed Feelings
Is this movie good? Yeah probably... but did I enjoy it? Not at all. Honestly I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone. About halfway through I just wanted it to end.

Story 6/10
To be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of tragedy but from an objective point of view, most of the plot feels like it was written as a poor attempt to make me pity the characters or something... I guess. We're presented with the point of view of MC who lives much longer than the rest of the cast and also some other challenges people with longevity face which obviously will have its ...

I think the reviews here that are mostly 1-2/10 are certainly on to something. This pathetic piece of work is disappointing and I'd be surprised to find someone who thinks it's at least good from an objective point of view; the concept of a survival game will always demand high expectations from viewers.

To be honest, I'm not one to judge harshly on an anime, but at the very least there is a storyline I can follow, characters whose actions I can judge logically, a soundtrack that isn't disturbing enough for me to want to turn it off, and visuals that are still properly animated ...

Ever since a young age, watching anime and doing related activities was already the norm for me. I have watched, read and experienced many different types of genres from mainstreams such as One Piece and Attack on Titan, Shoujo anime including idol and magical girl concepts, darker themes such as Death Note and many lesser known titles and classics such as Taishou Yakyuu Musume, and even both Yaoi and Yuri, including the good and terrible titles. Even so, I can confidently say that Silver Diamond is the most thought-provoking, tear-jerking, exhilarating roller-coaster ride and beautiful manga that I have ever read.

Story 10/10
Honestly, I went ahead ...

Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live is one of my favorite anime. If you have seen Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream, or Pretty Rhythm Dear My Future, and you loved it, I definitely recommend this season! I don't mean to criticize, but I think their performances out-shined those in the first two Pretty Rhythm seasons.

Story- 8/10
The stories of Pretty Rhythm never fail to impress me. Often they start off light to allow viewers to explore the characters of the story, dropping hints of crucial incidents about to come and then delve into a formidable trial in the second half which portrays both physical and emotional challenges beautifully. ...

Jewelpet Twinkle, no kidding, is my favourite magical girl shoujo ever.

Story 8/10
Akari Sakura, the most adorable main character you'll ever meet, is a normal girl with no particular talents but many dreams. What makes it worse is that she is constantly compared to her older sister and fashionista, Monica Sakura, developing an inferiority complex.

On the other hand, Ruby is a rabbit and magician but isn't good at magic, so she goes to the human world to find a human partner which is said to help boost one's powers. With the two combined, Akari ends up becoming involved in a new world where she ...

Better than season 1.

Story 8/10
So into their second year, the five teams of the Musical Department are battling it out for the training roles for the third years' graduation performance. Honestly, the whole story basically follows the characters trying to get their senpai to notice them. Not disappointed in the least.

Jokes aside, the story is really about Hoshitani at this point and shows the influence of his friends which leads to his success, despite being the least skilled candidate for the training roles. And of course, it shows how he is able to influence the rest of the cast in return. The story ...

Pupa (Anime) add
So I watched Pupa uncensored, and all the episodes 1-12 straight like a 38 minute movie. I noticed many reviews here on MAL with extremely low ratings and decided to watch it because I had 38 minutes to waste on a terrible full length story. Instead I actually enjoyed it.

Story 9/10
In my opinion the pacing was perfect. In fact there were times when I thought it was a little slow. Honestly if it was a 20 minute series I wouldn't have been able to sit the whole thing especially since I'm not fan of horror or gore as well.

Art 8/10
The watercolor background visuals were nicely ...
