Three young girls, strangers to each other, share an instinctual passion and talent for music. Brought together from distinctly different worlds, they meet by chance at the concert of their idol. The concert strikes a chord in each of their hearts and unites them with a common dream of stardom.The girls each enroll in the same music school and are brought together again in a special class for exceptional talent. As their voices come together in harmony, the girls realize that they share more than just a passion for song. A mysterious blue stone, a hauntingly beautiful melody...

the cover art is just wrong


I wasn't planning on reviewing this anime but the cover art is so far from what this show is about it's not even funny.Chance Pop Session is a good show...Not an anime about 3 girls with their butts hanging out.The episodes are about the girls starting a j-pop group,dealing with family pressure and each other.I didn't give any details but this is not a harem show like the cover might suggest.I have the original 3 dvds and watched them just recently.I was suprised that for an older anime I really liked the english dub.Pick this up because it's a great deal on a really good show but not for the cover art.

Heartwarming Story

by -

Chance Pop Sessions is about three girls from three very different backgrounds who love music, singing and the pop idol Reika. The girls meet by chance at a concert for Reika and their paths become intertwined after that.

The story in my opinion is told very well , but about halfway through you can probably predict the outcome. Even though the way it ended is the way I predicted things would go, I still enjoyed seeing these girls come together and form a musical group while finding out the truth about their backgrounds.

I also enjoyed the music and thought that the song selection fit well with the story. The art style seemed a little dated, but it didn't deter from the story.

Don't judge the anime by the cover because it's very misleading! This is definitely a touching drama with a bit of slice of life to it. If you haven't watched this anime, I definitely recommend you check it out!

One Of My Favorite Short Series


Forget the cover -- Chance Pop Session is one of the few short series that tells a great story and finishes up without leaving you wondering what happened. The characters become endearing to you, with well defined stories of their own. And their struggle takes them to a place in their lives that could have never imagined.

A Melody of Emotion

by -

Chance Pop Session is a 13 episode serenade of song and story. Though the story is sweet and tragic in some moments, the plot remains interesting throughout the run of the show and peaks at the finale. The animation isn't as polished as some of the newer shows, and there are scenes that involve real backgrounds instead of animated ones. This doesn't take away from the show, however, but I can't honestly say it adds anything to it either. There were parts that reminded me of Jem and the Holograms, because random, music video type scenes would happen after certain events in the three main girls' lives. These moments were sweet and added some nostalgia for me. Akari, Yuki and Nozomi all had intriguing plots, as well as their idol Reika. The most interesting character for me was their manager Kisaragi, who helped tie the four girls together in more ways than one. I took a chance on Chance Pop Session, and I'm glad I did.

Give this one a "Chance"

First of all, yes don’t judge a book by it’s cover and that’s probably why I picked this one up. As I started watching this one, I realized this isn’t quite my type of anime and that I probably wouldn’t care that much. As it went on, I have to admit that it snuck up on me and kept pushing me to like it. Which by the end, I ended up liking it. This show has so much heart put into it through how its put together and the story it tells. It’s not the most exotic and different kinds of stories, but the message and how the characters embrace these messages really made an impact. Messages of never giving up, going for your dreams, and who your family is, blood related or not. All of these things wrapped up made this show one of a kind. There’s not much to criticize. It can be a little slow at times and it did take a couple episodes to start making me invested. Other than that, the music (which there’s a lot of) is catchy and it wraps up nicely in the end. Recommended. 4.5/5
