Synopsis

Since she was very young, Kasumi Toyama has always been searching for the "Star Beat", a sparkling and exciting sound she heard while looking up at the night sky. Just after getting into high school, Kasumi comes across a "star-shaped guitar" in the storage area of an old pawn shop. Feeling a rush and excitement she has never felt before, Kasumi teams up with four other girls and embarks on a journey to seek out the shiny place. We promise to perform a live here!

Episode 1

And so, it begins with Kasumi looking for a club to join as she begins school. Athletic clubs just didn't work out, and along the way she meets Saya, whose family runs a bakery, and Akari, who introduces her to music. She followed the stars, and that's how she decided that she wanted to do music. This feels like watching yesterday's episode of Minami Kamakura, and this is pretty much setup, so I shall see what happens from here before making a judgment.

Yup just set up so far, Liking the songs though.

And for those that didn't know the VA's are actually the ones that play the instruments for the songs, not someone else.

Also looks like they might go for some CG performances but it doesn't look too bad, nice character designs.

And if you are interested pre registration for the game is open and ends on the 31st, go here for more info

Eh that wasn't too bad. I might be missing K-On too much to give a fair judgement though

That wasn't too bad, but already MC's unbridled and reckless enthusiasm is getting under my skin, and I didn't like the music at all.

This is a show that I'd normally give another couple episodes trial, but I'm not willing to subscribe to TAN just to do that based on ep 1 (which is all that's likely to be available to non-subscribers), so I won't be continuing. Just as well really since I've already got plenty of other new stuff to watch this season.

Didn't see an announcement but the first episode is on CR now, so I guess they have a delay cast on it as well.

Cute, gotta love genki characters, nice animation. I think the chairman from Prison School would approve too

Well then. I guess it is going to get more of a chance from me.

At least it's just 2 days! Better than the week delay-cast for Gundam. I have TAN for Urara anyway so I don't need to wait but it's nice CR got this one, too bad they didn't get Urara too. I have Amazon Prime now but strangely they don't have Urara for Canada... oh the strange ways of international streaming rights.

Wow, it's already here? Without any announcement? Oh well, but somehow, i KNEW IT CR would get this! Hype! I've been waiting for this a while. I hope this turns out be a big hit like K.ON! and Love Live! did. And there's a mobile game coming? Oh, count me in.

And onto the episode. So far, like it. Kasumi's hairstlye, to have cat-like ears on it, is kawaii!

What's next? Can't wait!

I thought it was good first episode. I like girl bands a lot better than idol shows so hoping this does well. Nothing wrong with a MC who has some passion(Lorreen don't be Humbug) good for confidence and sometimes it rubs off on other friends.

Apparently that was just a delay on the first episode. The Site News announcement that showed up today indicates 6:00 AM PST Saturdays. That's weird that Urara isn't on Amazon for Canada, but they almost certainly have good business reasons. I guess.

That's good to know! If they'd announced the show before it arrived I would have known... LOL

Urara is on Anime Strike in the US Amazon Prime. Canada just got Amazon Prime finally last month but doesn't have Strike yet so who knows... for the moment I am paying for too many streaming services. Would be nice if I could consolidate but they aren't cooperating so far.

Liking it but not loving it so far. It's not really doing anything that hasn't been seen before, though I do feel the constant "It's just K-On" comments to be off the mark. What it does, even if familiar, it's doing pretty well. Even the music is pretty good if not great. I can definitely see sticking with this for the long haul.

Oh, and Kasumi's hair is great. For some reason it does seem to be a trend this season, but it's a trend I can get behind.

I've gotten so used to fast paced anime it took me a bit to get in sync with the series but now that I have I really like it. I'm not expecting a depth of storytelling but what I've seen so far I like. The MC is "super genki" which I like in these types of series and the other girls look promising as well. Plus the music so far has had my toes tapping. I'm getting a vague SoniAni feel for some reason.
