Episode 2

Still trying to adapt with the whole CGI stuff but hey, at least it looks like the series has a plot that is understandable rather than all over the place.

Music is decent actually although I'm not sure how I feel about Shingan Crimsonz. One of their member has quite an ego.

This is unusual enough that I can imagine some people just won't like it, but two episodes in, I think I love it so far. For starters, I'm an 80s metal guy, so I have a natural affinity for Shingan Crimsonz and do I detect a Gene Simmons reference here? But he didn't play bass, so it's probably just me.



And of course I can't help but notice another seeming KISS reference in the background.



The backgrounds alone are distracting enough!

Loved everything about this episode. The band members fighting, retoree, cyan moving into the dorms, retoree, shingan crimsonz singing, retoree...did I for get to mention retoree?

Best thing about this for me is, if it keeps at this rate there will be new songs on the game every week. Can't wait to play them!

Had this thought while watching it this week, just picture Danny DeVito as Louie DePalma from Taxi as the labels president. But have to say this is my guilty pleasure show to watch of the season, just works on so many levels.

Also unless they are using some time doesn't work the same in the music world as the real world, won't anybody notice Cyan missing?

I need more ShinganCrimsonz songs in my life, apparently. That snippet we got was not enough.
Glad all the bands aren't pop rock.

The power rangers on the tv were amusing. XD

I can't tell if this show is parodying things or just being extremely self-aware while playing the tropes straight.

And is the sheep girl a space sheep or from the real world? I really want her to be a space sheep. XD

This looks like it'll be a 'get sucked into an alternate world to learn a valuable lesson' type story. Generally, time either stops while you're in the alternate world, it moves very slowly, or time can even be rewound slightly so you can redo a decision with your newly learned lesson. Just think Narnia, Neverending Story, Labyrinth, etc. I'm guessing the show will end with Cyan going back to the real world and having the courage and self-confidence to join the music club. Assuming they play the trope straight.

Sitting here waiting for Retoree to hump Cyan's leg. She is a dog after all and is giving off a heavy stalker vibe towards her so far.

The series should end with Cyan going home and joining the music club

Moa is a space sheep :3, though I can't remember if she actually had any lines in the game. I know in promo vids for the game she spoke in her native language.

Episode 3

Now, it's the battle of all-girls bands for Cyan's debut concert where the winner levels up. Criticrista totally brought the house down with their performance during rehearsal leading to Retoree doubting Plasmagica's chances seeing that the girls are Retoree's classmates. Cyan gets a new idea for the song and puts on a show. In the end, Criticrista won, but they took notice of Cyan. That was some concert that Plasmagica put on, and while it didn't end up in their crystal evolving, at least they showed just how good they are having just assembled.

So after 3 episodes, I've either gotten used to their 3D CG or perhaps they've been improving it. Not so much the use of 3D CG but more the way they're using it. I wonder if this'll become the band-of-the-week show? I might not mind, since it's great to see the different bands but it would be good if it became more than just that. Either way, I really like this one and I'm certainly going to look forward to merchandise from this show (June 24 for the first DVD, hopefully figures too! I'll make no apologies for my unabashed consumerism).

Episode 3

Damn, they lost. Oh well, at least Cyan got some recognition and had fun with it. For a first band of the battle though, this felt short. Most of it felt like more of introduction of the characters and buildup.

Although I have to admit that the songs itself are kinda decent.
