Synopsis


High school girl Nanako Usami became her town Nagarekawa's local idol at the request of her uncle. She and her upperclassman Yukari- a girl who seems perfect but ends up being air-headed- both become idols of their provincial area. They get interviewed (by the town's shopping center), go on television (low-budget cable), and hold concerts (on the roof of the department store). The girls' salaries come from the town's taxes. Together, the two form the "locodol" unit Nagarekawa Girls.

It seems kind of random, but I'll give it an episode or two. I made a promise to myself that I would give every Summer 2014 anime a shot if possible.

Episode 1

Nanako is so poor that she can't get a swimsuit. Such is the unfortunate truth about the town. So she gets work as a local idol with Yukari from her uncle, not exactly what she bargained for. And then the rest was history. Alright, that was just boring and cliched. While I am always up for shows like this, I just wasn't getting into it. So to the drop pile this show goes.

Episode 1



The first episode was interesting. We were introduced to the two main characters and they become Locodol. The uncle seem like an interesting character, he made me laugh a couple times. The outfits were pretty shocking, but it was for a pool event so I guess I can let it slide, but I look forward to more of this series.. The singing wasn't too bad and the progression looks promising..

I gotta say, I liked it. She is easily fooled, and she is clumsy, but she didn't go back on her word. Favorite character: the uncle. I think it deserves a watch just for his shenanigans.

Well, I don't want to compare but the show is indeed a bit off so far. It feels more like Wake Up Girls.

I'm somewhat surprised this was a full series rather than a short. Anyways, it was pretty meh so far. The animation was standard and the music is so-so. I'll give the show a few more episodes to see where it goes.

The first episode wasn't bad, but it also wasn't anything special. It is definitely random though, especially with the uncle. I'll give it the usual 3 episode test run before I decide if it is worth dropping or not.

Why are there so many idol anime? They're so bad. I feel like it was due to AKB0048 and [email protected] :/

I can't help but to mentally parse the title as "lololol" or something.

Anyways, they had me hooked at the break card...
