Action Heroine Cheer Fruits, Love Live! Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Doukoukai Recommendations
Following two diverse groups of girls who put on performances to save what they love. LL's team splits into several idol groups, who compete both on and off the stage, while AHCFs split into Heroes and Villains on stage, and are purely competitive off it.
These series have a strong focus on character rather than plot, and though their stages may be very different - LL being singing and dancing, AHCFs being anime Tokusatsu magical girls - they're both very fun and exciting to watch, with the shows evolving as the girls improve themselves and their friendships.
