Oh wow! Pripara is coming back! Hooray for Season 4!

Another one of these? Didn't Pripara have like 140 episodes? The bio says that this is set in another world. So they are dragging out the series then.

Considering how popular the other world theme is and how much you love it in other shows, I don't see why you are complaining. Besides, Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream, the prequel, is set in another world/setting as well. Thus Pripara was born.

Aikatsu!, Love Live, and Nurse Witch Komugi-chan R are all quite similar if you ask me. I just cannot wait for more songs!

Synopsis

Yui Yumekawa is a 6th grade elementary school student who has dreams of being an idol. She has a cute dream, but she is a normal girl and knows that her dream of being an idol is just a dream. Even her friends tell her “how long are you going to keep dreaming about this?”

Then one day, an idol theme park is announced to be opening up in her town! ! On top of that, Yui hears that finally, Raara, Parajuku’s top idol, is finally going to be coming as well! This only makes her dream even bigger! However,… the person who appears is just some girl in the same grade as her named Raara Manaka.

“Pripara” from Paparajuku has been upgraded and is the new idol system for the series. Can these two girls set forth as idols and, sure enough, accomplish even more?!

Three Episode Impression

In essence, Idol Time is very... colorful. And it’s another one of those idol type shows that really catches your attention with beautiful colors. As for the story itself, it seems okay, as I am not your avid idol anime fan, so with that being said, I’ll leave it with you guys to judge. But for me, there were some parts of the series that I find very cringey. But then, I guess I could say the same with all the other idol-themed anime.

So, if you like idol-themed anime like the previous Pretty Rhythm sequels, then I think it’s safe to give this one a try. Although there will be arguments that will say previous idols are better than this one, or vice versa. Let the Idol Wars begin!
