    Popularity is probably tied to the fact that It’s not on Crunchyroll. Not sure what is bigger, Crunchyroll or HiDive, but Crunchyroll has the social reach to better promote the show.

    yes i agree to all of your review. The animation is visually arresting, clean and crisp! It kinda reminds me of Violet Evergarden. 😀
    Also, every characters are fresh and the story although I must admit I am kinda confuse with the giraffe.LOL

    Spoiler! Epidose 3
    Uh why do i have the feeling its going yuri vibe?. or it is just me.

    Have you looked into the stage play at all? It took place around september of 2017 and everything about it is absolutely BREATHTAKING. The plot of the anime is based on it!

    Ok so I watched it. And I think you totally undersold that half way through this show becomes literally bonkers and nothing like the original premise. If I knew going in that it was this nuts I would have totally given it a shot a while ago. You can totally tell people what’s up without spoiling it haha Thanks for making me watch this. P.s. A Place Further Than The Universe is truly what made me watch this after you’re made me see how an anime can be so much for then what in paper looks like a very feminine premise.

    I’m Only Watching This Because Mimorin And Hinato Sato Are The Voice Characters.

    Looking back at this review and watching episode 10 of this series, really gets me. The Tokyo tower scene wasn’t cuz of how Hikari felt about Karen, it was crazily a foreshadow of Hikaris

    why is this show so fucking hype? it looks like idol trash! we are in on ground floor and the whole community will be talking about this if ep2 is half this hard core

    I really hope it’s based more on relationships between the characters more than just how hard it is to get to the top. Of course, it’d probably end with either both Hikari and karent, would be nice, or the obvious one being Karen seeing how she is the main character. But i really wanna see their relationship grow throughout the series like in idolm@ster with chihaya and haruka. That’s what these two remind me of.

    When I first watched this anime I had no idea what this was about. I’m so so glad I clicked on it because it’s absolutely stunning so far!

    While editing this I picked up on even MORE details packed into all of the imagery and how it foreshadows or ties together different parts of the episode and I’m seriously blown away. This has weekly review potential if the second episode maintains this level of quality.

    I really enjoy this series. It feels like a true successor to the prince of anime, Shoujo Kakumei Utena (even truer than Penguindrum). It’s worked masterfully up to episode 3. This is my top choice for the season. I just hope it doesn’t become a clone of my favourite series of all time.

    Revue Starlight

    What I learnt from watching anime?

    • never trust emotionless talking animals
    • be wary of episode 3 and 8
    • transfer student to a magic theatre girl school… very suspicious

    This is what practically feels like Symphogear meets Mahou Shoujou Ikusei Keikaku. Idolesque setting? Mahou shoujou setting? I’m on board!

    Don’t watch this, it’s just idol trash
    Dropped after 10 minutes :’)

    Yes, The first episode was so good! And also the attention to detail in that episode was amazing, characters were talking while another story was told with visuals. This might be the Hidden gem of this season.

    I feel like they really rushed the character introduction. They just flash by 6 characters in three minutes and then there are the three main characters, plus one giraffe. How am I even supposed to remember all the names? And why should I care for the idols, if I don’t know what makes each idol unique? In Princess Nine and Gurren Lagann it’s done the right way, and they gradually introduce the characters over several episodes.
    Besides this the art and music is nice, but I think the 7 point score is justified.

    I suggest you lower your extremely high impression of this show. It could lead to a terrible disappointment. You sound so completely blow away to Pluto, I immediately recall your wholehearted very high initial praise of Franxx, and we all know what happened to that. Just a statement of caution.

    As a fan of the Takarzuka Revue this series is a joy to watch.It’s the real all female theatre company that the school is based on. It’s been around for over 100 years and has some amazing actresses.And the Yuri is top notch. My lesbian heart loves it. The music is also amazing I love how the character songs add a whole new layer to everything.

    Due to looking for a review, I stumble upon your video and decided to give it a try. I must say, I am not disappointed in the show. I just watched the first episode and all the details you mentioned are spot-on.

    People need to understand about Japanese musical theatre especially Takarazuka Revue before watch this anime. Because Revue Starlight obviously was inspired by Takarazuka, But Starlight did something differrent from Takarazuka.
    1. Takarazuka (IRL) and Seishou (In anime), both are all woman music school. but in theatre Takarazuka have male role played by female, Starlight straighforward just have all woman role in theatre
    2. Takarazuka decide "Top Star" maybe through size of fan base (wikipedia), Starlight decide top start with theatre battle
