Synopsis


Set in the glamorous metropolis Tokyo Midi City, where music—and the dream of musical superstardom—is everything. Here, “battle of the bands” is more than just a teen rivalry: Dozens of ensembles compete for the honor of playing atop the city’s highest tower.  When a Gothic Lolita-clad catgirl cutie named Cyan stumbles into the music world, she too is swept up by the dream of fame. After joining forces with three other colorful characters—bunnygirl honor student Chuchu, shy doggirl Retoree, and adorable sheepgirl Moa—the quartet becomes Plasmagica, the freshest band on the scene. Armed with special instruments, the girls face off with other bands striving for stardom, like the cool and passionate Visual Kei band Shingan Crimsonz, or the handsome pop idols Trichronika. Will the band find celebrity? Or are they doomed to be one-hit-wonders…

Episode 1

I didn't think that Dagger would be able to do any more damage after being reduced to a lowly tadpole, but he found someone who will make him dangerous again in the Queen of Darkness as she and her goons are threatening to mute Midi City. So Cyan, is called back to action, and a ninja band makes their appearance. That was nice to get back into this show, and the Ninja band from the future is pretty cool.

Music seems to have improved compared to season 1. They got a variety.

Plus, first episode sets up for the rest of the season...
Queen of Darkness seems to be main boss so far.

They wasted no time getting right to the action. I got a feeling Bud Virgin Logic is my new favorite now.

Time to update my Retoree avatar.

I dropped this show in the first season an episode or two in for reasons I can't recall, but this episode convinced me that I need to go back and rectify that. More of a setup episode than anything else but I'm eager for the next episode either way.

This feels like the most pointless, shoehorned sequel season ever........

Excuse me while I evil laugh like the Queen of Darkness.

That was awesome. Had the evil queen with a star destroyer pulling an Independence Day attack on Midicity. Everyone is screwed.
Then we've got time traveling ninjas who go back to try and save the future.
Then a freaking mech shows up in the real world to pick up Cyan.
There wasn't even a monster/kaiju besides Dagger, but I don't even care with that beginning.

This show and it's way of mixing all sorts of random awesome stuff into what's technically a battle of the bands show.

Out of all the 1st episodes I have seen this season (I think 6-7 of them), this one by far was the best. Goodness, that was hype. The entertainment value is still out of this world. The color usage are sooooooooooo damn good. Bones is once again doing some majestic work as well as the VA's. Then, similar to what Loki said, that time traveling ninja stuff was pretty hilarious and awesome as well as all of this mixing going on. Most definitely looking forward to this weekly.

That was so cool ! I was a fan of Season 1 bur the Opener rocked . Action / good vs bad / music great comedy / and all the homages if if you think carefully.

You got to throw out the anime rule book / bevause it's meant to be fun and entertain you. No lofty goals just outlandish and a good job at that !
It does feel kinda different it's on CR / but FUNI will be dubbing it

And hey this is real it might be in my Top 5 already !

Not going to lie, the new OP song this season is cuter than the previous one.



Kamui's character design looks familiar...but I can't recall from where.

Episode 2

Cyan is back, and the opening is pretty reminiscent of a K-On. But as great as the reunion is, there's no time to relax as Plasmagica needs to practice as if their lives depended on it, and things get worse when Moa is ordered to come home due to her negligence of her duties as an investigator. So everybody makes the trip to try and play to convince the chief to let her stay and it turns out that Moa is the crown princess of Pyuru. So after being chewed out, her parents come out to give the girls a chance to prove themselves and it was a big hit. Not only does Moa get to stay, but her parents are offering to chip in on the costs of building the new theme park. That was a great way to focus on Moa and that was quite a big reveal that this sheep is a princess.

Ep. 2

Cyan is back to her Kit-tastic self and Moa is adorable this episode.

and the Retoree / Moa fight over Cyan was funny too. Can't wait to see Caitlin and Monica do that scene in the dub.
