At last, the producer finds the girl she is looking for to improve his idol group’s fortunes. Her name is Hanako.
Note: This post is late since I am coming back from vacation. Future posts will be done on time.
From watching this, you might have a feeling that this feels familiar. Yes, this feels familiar to the hour-long Wake Up Girls prologue. While Ongaku Girls’ production agency doesn’t have poor financials compared to the Wake Up Girls’, they are not on the top. They are just a C-rank idol group that desperately needs a boost. Maybe Hanako is the girl who can reverse their fortunes.
I have to admit that Hanako is a cute and pretty girl. She seems to like idols. Of course, they are not the idols that most will have in mind. She believes that idols are like her monster plush. I have to admit that she is a bit naïve.
Thankfully, she receives a chance to see an idol performance and she is amazed, especially by Uori’s singing. I agree with others that Uori and Hanako would make a nice pairing. Also, it’s nice that Hanako is able to do Miku’s dance routines without much practice and even improve on how the girls do their dance routines.
However, for Hanako’s singing, that is a different story. It’s quite interesting how Hanako’s mother knows the producer some way or another. Apparently, Hanako’s parents are a renowned musicians. From this, you would think that her daughter would have a lot of natural talent. Sadly, her singing leaves a lot to be desired. Her singing is terrible. Still, it was funny seeing the producer in shock as he might have made the wrong decision. Then again, if Hanako receives some vocal training, she can probably fix this.
Overall, the first episode of Ongaku Shoujo is fun. Sure, there are similarities with the premise. However, the girls’ personalities are different. It should be interesting to learn how they develop more as the show goes on. Also, I have to admit that it was funny seeing Roro’s salt blown into the producer’s face. He is definitely salty that his idol group isn’t popular yet. Either way, I look forward to the girls try to aim for stardom and overcome their low rank. ¶
