KiRaRe finally made it to nationals for Prism Stage, but will they be able to beat Stella Maris?
At last, KiRaRe made it to nationals. However, they are the last ones to perform after Stella Maris. It’s understandable that Mana and her friends are anxious. They need to win to prevent their club from disbanding. Still, it’s nice to see each pairing try to resolve their anxieties before going on stage and perform. The funny thing is that Sayu became annoyed when she saw Sango. Surprising, Sango changes her mind and show that Stella Maris can beat KiRaRe. Will Sayu prove her wrong?
When it comes to the performances, each group tried their hardest to give their best. Of course, Stella Maris manages up amaze everyone that the audience wants an encore. When they didn’t want to, when KiRaRe went on stage, everyone started to leave.
I have to admit that this is very disheartening. Sure, they face an uphill battle against Stella Maris, but that is just rude for the audience to leave instead of staying to the end. Thankfully, Mana thinks positively and think that the people will come back after they start hearing their performance. Indeed, it did as they performed, the audience became excited again. Not only that, their performance moves Mana’s older sister, Aone. The thing is, is this enough to beat Stella Maris.
Few months passes by and Mana and her friends are sad. They couldn’t beat Stella Maris at the nationals. I guess the simulations that Kae ran in the last time were right. KiRaRe couldn’t stand a chance against them no matter what they do. With that, they have no choice but to disband the Lyrical Traditional Dance Club. On the blight side, at least they have the memories, right?
However, there is a surprise. The advisor of the club wanted to deliver a note from the Prism Stage administration. Apparently, the administration nominated KiRaRe for a special program. While I find it funny how the advisor gave the wrong note and gave Tetrakhia’s duel invitation. Whoops! Either way, the club isn’t being disbanded. After all, they have another way to achieve their idol dreams.
While Re:Stage! Dream Days is underrated idol genre shows based on a mobile game, it’s very enjoyable. Sure, it has some similarities to Love Live as a bunch of girls forming an idol unit. The only difference is that Mana and her friends has to achieve something to prevent their club from getting disbanded.
Sure, the characters’ introduction and recruitment are similar to other idol genre anime, but there is more emphasis on the pairings. Yes, this show is cluck full of moments of yuri and shipping moments. This is especially the case with Mana and Sayu as Mana wants to be with Sayu for a long, long time. Of course, that feeling is mutual, which causes some viewers wonder when they will kiss. But overall, the music and the overall production is very good. I think that those who usually enjoy idol genre shows will like this show.
