I thought it was a great first episode, I got to see it at anime boston. Got me hooked for the time being at least. I think the music is amazing, her voice gave me chills. It just feels powerful and raw. The CGI and eyes turn me away but I can deal with it.

Can't wait for more.

This usually sums up how I feel about all shoujo titles so I guess I'm used to that by now. You just know she's be the type of MC who is over dramatic and whines but most of her problems are self inflicted by being impulsive and making choices that make no sense.

Episode 2

The story about Nino back in elementary school is explained as Momo stood up for Nino when things went wrong as her next-door neighbor. Things were great until he moved away and since then she has been wearing that surgical mask. And then she met Yuzu on the beach, who was composing a song in the sand. She hoped that her singing would bring her back to Momo again someday. So she continues to sing that song Yuzu wrote on the beach waiting for the day she meets Momo again. In the meantime, Nino's voice is getting recognized, for better or worse, and what she apparently heard is not Momo's voice. Pretty interesting backstory that was.

Not yet but they are pretty quick to update them. Anyways, episode 2....

This show really likes the Twinkle Twinkle Star theme wow...I hope this isn't going to be a trend every episode.
Luckily, the OP song takes a different approach. I think it's alright, not too impressive though.

One thing I notice about this show is the constant flashbacks of Nino. I think it's really trying to get the audience to understand her better. She and Momo has quite a past back then. It also shows when she started to wear a facemask.

Pretty decent background storytelling episode imo.

Amazon has put up the airing times for their shows this season. I'll put them in the Spring season anime thread. For this show, it airs Tuesdays at 7:30am Pacific.

Wasn't a huge fan of the episode they spent a long time, basically the whole episode on backstory that was already summed up in episode one but they felt the need to explain every tiny detail about it this time. Also hearing "twinkle twinkle,little star" every two seconds got annoying. I guess the show is limited by a still running manga so they have to use chapters as much as they can to make episodes but it really felt like the story didn't move at all.

So now we know again in more detail how she used to sing that song with her neighbour Momo who moved away for some reason and he was the one who encouraged her to sing when others didn't like how she just shouts everything. We learned that she wears the mask because it makes her feel better and keep her emotions inside or something and we knew last episode how she met Yuzu who was composing music and she sand his song which made him instantly fall in love with her and they later lost touch too for reasons.

All of this has apparently left her mentally scarred with abandonment issues and obsessed with finding Momo again because reasons. If the next episode makes me wait a week to watch the same backstory again and especially if they sing "twinkle twinkle,little star" again I'm dropping this show.

Ok so pretty much entire episode was backstory of Momo and Alice/Nino relationship when it started and music connection. Then add Yuzu and the traiangle has been formed. I like that Alice said the voice she heard from concert couldn't be Momo or he would of come to her house first when in town. I hope she holds on to that feeling but guessing all will be forgiven when reunion happens? I want Alice to sing with the band some more pretty much done with flashbacks after 2 episodes ready to move forward.

Episode 2

The second episode was focused on Nino and Momo's past of how they walked to school and sang Twinkle Twinkle Star at night. This kept on going from second grade until fourth grade when Momo moved away due to family problems. After that Nino started wearing a mask to cover her face and to keep in her emotions but that couldn't last. She met Yuzu at the beach and from than on started singing the lyrics he would write until the day he found out that Momo was a guy. In the end looks like Nino might be scouted because of her voice.

It was nice to see the backstory but what killed it for me was that they sang Twinkle Twinkle Star all the damn time.

I like Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Laa La La as much as the next guy, but that's enough.

A solid background storytelling episode to provide more foundation for the series moving forward

In some ways episode 2 was an improvement but I'm just not feeling this one at all. The MC is just too annoying and, frankly, her singing is pretty bad given how everyone seems to fall instantly in love with it. I think I'm done here.

I'll give this one more shot. I really want to like this and both the OP and ED are pretty good. Also, they at least seem to be hinting at a plot other than Nino screeching 'MOMO' or Yuzu screaming 'ALIIIIIIIICEEE' with the other singer.


Otherwise:

--It's very cute that Nino and Momo sang everywhere, but we don't need to be beat over the fucking head with it.

--Nino is very annoying. I'm hoping she eventually gets herself together other than screeching MOMO or LALALALAing every five seconds.

--I hope Yuzu wins already. The boy is a musical prodigy!

--I haven't read the manga yet(It's downloaded on my Kindle app though)...is Nino different in the manga or is she just as extra?
