This year was swamped with idols. And even with this abundance of riches, I decided to wade through over 100 episodes of a children’s idol cartoon. And for what? If I were to be honest, I’d have to say it was a certain top designer’s fault. Of course, a single character, no matter how cute, can’t carry me through 100 episodes, or so I’d like to believe. Luckily, even though the CG dancing was wretched (at the beginning; after getting the hang of it for three years, the CG dancing has become fairly impressive), the songs were great and the other characters have their charms. Especially impressive was the main character switch, which eventually paved the way for my boy Sena Tsubasa to show up.
