About Locodol Blu-ray

Locodol collection contains episodes 1-13 of the anime directed by Munenori Nawa.

Some cities spend millions to draw in tourists, but a small town like Nagarekawa doesn't have those resources. What it DOES have is Nanako, whose dream of becoming an idol singer is suddenly given life when she and fellow classmate Yukari are recruited by her uncle (who serves on the city council) to become local idols.

That means performing at the openings of swimming pools and appearing on the smaller local TV stations, so it's not the glamorous lifestyle one sees in the movies, but it is a way to help her city and neighbors while doing something she cares about. And when Nanako and Yukari are joined by a third classmate, the petite but athletic Yui who takes on the task of appearing in costume as the town mascot, everything really comes together.

They may not be on the road to fame and fortune, but there's plenty of fun to be found ahead as they become Locodols!

Special Features: Art Bumpers, Clean Opening & Closing Animations.

Spoken Languages: Japanese, English subtitles.

A Great Slice of Life Show

by -

I'm a lover of slice of life shows and this is one of my favorites. It follows the lives of girls who support their community as local idols or Locodols. There's no big goal or high aspirations on the line here as the clumsy Nanako just tries to get through performances without making mistakes and her upperclassman Yukari just enjoys being able to perform and spend time with Nanako. The girls that wear the mascot suit make for some solid supporting characters. There's a bit of yuri humor here too but it s not heavily emphasized.

A hidden gem of a slice of life show.

by -

This is hard one to review. I loved this show. I want more and when I found out there were 2 OVAs not on this set. Those missing OVA episodes are the weakest in the series and you aren't missing anything by them not being included.

What is here is absolutely a fun ride the girls are sweet hearts who may or may not have a thing for each other, it could go either way I'm really not sure. The supporting cast complements the main girls perfectly and while there isn't a ton of music there are some catchy tunes here.

This is a real hidden gem and I'm glad I took a gamble on this one. Highest recommendation.

A series with heart

by -

Having watched many series of the "cute girls doing cute things" style, Locodol is one of the best. Many times these series start strong by focusing on a specific activity (dancing, sports, art, music, etc), yet they fail to explore that activity and all its story possibilities. Locodol does not have this shortcoming. I enjoyed seeing all the different ways they would promote the town (such as reviewing local restaurants on TV) and how the main trio grew in their roles. I especially liked Yui as the girl who performed as the town mascot. It's easy to like the characters, thus you find yourself rooting for them to succeed.
Recommended.
