User Reviews

Great series,and worth watching
2 May 2017 | by Wingzero4uSee all my reviews

What got me into the series:

When I first started watching this series on Crunchyroll,I have to say that I have never seen anything like this.This series was simply the best.

Buying the series:

When I found out that NIS America was going to get this series released on Blu-Ray,I knew that it was be something that I want to own,and I did.When I bought both seasons on Blu-Ray,I really enjoyed them.It was like watching the series on Crunchyroll.

What I like in the show:

My favorite characters in the show are: Honoka,Kotori,and Maki. They have to be the best in the series. I do like the outfits that Kotori designs for the group. The show also had some amazing songs,and they were moving.

The meaning of the series:

What this series really explains is being something that you want to be takes a lot of work and dedication. We have to work hard,and give it our best shot,and think about a goal that needs to be accomplished.

So in closing to this series,please check it out.And after the show,see the movie.
