Very good girl band kind of anime!
10 August 2018 | by IrishchatterSee all my reviews

I really thought this anime was really well done and the music was very uplifting. I like the fact that we see the 4 girls being more themshelves then based on how they look. I sometimes feel that some anime always makes young girls look "overly cute" but this one really stood out for me since their personalities were totally unique!

Definitely recommend this anime to anyone who is need of music in their ears and a bit of relaxed humour as well! I given it 8/10!
