"Starlight" is the song and dance revue troupe loved throughout the world. Karen and Hikari make a promise with each other when they're young that one day they'll stand on that stage together. Time passes, and now the girls are 16 years old. Karen is very enthusiastic about the lessons she takes every day, holding her promise close to her heart. Hikari has transferred schools and is now away from Karen. But the cogs of fate turn, and the two are destined to meet again. The girls and other "Stage Girls" will compete in a mysterious audition process to gain acceptance into the revue.

Clearly the best thing HIDIVE was able to snag this season. It's visually high grade; the CG is barely noticable and very few stills. The action is pretty cool and the dancing/fighting pretty pleasing. I have no idea what the plot is going to be but It has my interest. The best thing thing I can compare it to would be a more grounded but cleaner Symphogear.

Yes! Really enjoyed this first episode. I'm a huge mark for Kunihiko Ikuhara's crazy style of directing and this show being directed by one of his students Tomohiro Furukawa really showed what he's good for on the second half of the episode. This is definitely my surprise of the season.

I am SO into this show. I'm not expecting it to be as deep and thought provoking as Utena, but so far it really delivers. Great series to watch while waiting for upcoming Ikuni show.
And as a cool bonus Hikari-chan is voiced by Suzuko Mimori voice of Umi Sonoda from Love Live! School Idol Project.

Episode 2
For a show that I still have no clue as to what is going on, I am enjoying the simply beautifully animated artstyle and scenes. The voice acting is pretty good, especially when they want to show the clear difference in talent, and the actions scenes are very entertaining. Can't wait for the next episode and I specially can't wait to figure out what exactly is happening.

Episode 5
Spoiler:
Mahiru-chan went full Yandere. What in the world is with the structure of this underground facility? I guess gravity and the laws of physics don't count in this show. How in the world does going down a hole lead to coming up another hole in a separate level?
