I've moved this over to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum but I'm not sure what the question really is. Are you just looking for a yes/no answer as to whether or not people have watched it? Are you just asking people to confirm that it's not on Crunchyroll?

I have not watched it.
It is not on Crunchyroll.

Premium Members may let Crunchyroll know shows they would like to see in the What series/movie/drama/manga would you like to see on CR? thread in the Premium Members group.

i've watched it, as well as PR: Aurora Dream and PR: Dear My Future.

Although Rainbow Live stands on its own without the need to watch the previous two, i'd still recommend watching the previous two series regardless. Rainbow Live borrows heavily from the previous two series, particularly in regards to prism jumps.

Aurora Dream is really fun to watch - particularly the manzai jokes of Serenon, and the prism jumps are really great imnho.
the signature prism jump, Aurora Rising, remains the best prism jump in the entire Prism series, and of course, miles better than any making drama (the prism jump is replaced by 'making drama' in pripara) from the Pripara series - its spiritual successor.

Dear My Future starts with an annoying main character (Mia), but somewhere down the line, she becomes ever so likeable, and by the end of the series, she's a favorite. The drama near the end is over the top, but I think it was well worth watching. Mia's friendship with Hein was one of the most well-done in an idol series - their close riendship felt legitimate and not forced. This is the only series i know where there was a strong collaboration between Japanese and Korean VAs, and if you pay attention, you'll notice Korean sprinkled in. Mia has a very solid character development, and it's the only idol series i know that made clever use of the opening theme (Dear My Future ~To the Future Me~). i found all the prizzmy songs to be catchy, though not so much for the Puretty.

Rainbow Live was enjoyable throughout. the songs are catchy (maybe not as much as Dear My Future or Aurora Dream, but still), there's solid character episodes for each idol. this is also the last true Prism series, with beautiful prism jumps. sadly, they dropped the idea of prism jumps altogether after this. for better or worse, this is also the last prism series with traingular love relationship (love/crush is pretty much non-existant in pripara). as for the songs, Rinne's Gift was definitely the catchiest - the vocals and the instrumentals are a wonder to the ears. you can see that they put their hearts into the song, almost as if the song itself was a gift to pretty rhythm fans. a parting gift, the last Waltz for a very enjoyable series.
