Exciting! Transfer to Idol School!!
As Kirari becomes more recognized by people in the entertainment world, going to school becomes more challenging as the media and her fans would crowd around her. Muranishi assigns Kirari a new school for idols that SHIPS attends. Erina, also in her new class, tries to make Kirari's first day a nightmare. Erina, however, only makes her recognition more positive.
Kirarin Revolution is about a young girl called Kirari who becomes an idol because she wants to follow her crush, Seiji. However, as the story progresses, she wants to be an idol for more than that reason.Story:I gave the story a 4 because it doesn't develop much and far too many of the episodes are fillers. I can understand that the writers would find it hard to keep up a decent storyline for over 100 episodes, but still.. in each episode an event happens that would usually take a quarter of an episode in most other series, hence making the series feel very dragged out.It is aimed for younger girls who want to be an idol like Kirari, and that is probably why the lack of a decent story annoys me. Art:The art is fair enough. It isn't bad, but it isn't outstanding either. Kirari always manages to look pretty and cute, but that's as far as it goes. All the other characters and backgrounds look fairly plain in comparison to Kirari.Sound:The music is catchy, up-beat and cute, just how it's meant to be. The first opening theme and the second ending theme are delightful to listen to and have very cute lyrics; I even have the second ending on my ipod ^^. The background music is a little repetitive, but not so much that it bothers the viewer.Character:Aside from Kirari, none of the characters stand out as they are all pretty standard - Seiji is dense and naive, Hiroto is a tsundere, Erina is a spoilt brat and similar to Luna from Seto no Hanayome, and so on. Also, none have had any development yet, which pushes my score down. Everyone seems to just be there to push the story along.Enjoyment:Yes, even though I've just been complaining about the series, I gave this section a 8/10, simply because I always know I can relax when watching this series without becoming bored stiff. It's a lovely way to relax after having a hard day, and the language is quite easy so I can paint my nails without reading the subtitles sometimes ^^; haha.Overall:Overall, I thought that Kirarin Revolution deserved a 7/10. OK, it's not for everyone, but if you're like me and just want to find a nice and easy-going series about a cute idol, then I recommend it ^^
Kirarin Revolution is a fun anime but is al little bit to long in the middle and the romance doesn't really finisch it's stil a questionmark. But is really funny.
The epitome of overrated shoujo, yet I couldn't stop watching. Watch this garbage, let your soul be sucked in like mine was.
