We had school idols, social working idols, space idols and idol politicians before so it’s only a matter of time before we got magic idols. Let’s find out what the premiere had in store, shall we?
We kicked things off with our heroine Tiara sleeping soundly before getting a bumpy awakening. She explored the town in search of the “Legendary Academy”.
At the academy Tiara was surprised how quickly she was admitted to the academy. Even the “exam” seemed rather simple, simpler than a certain talking hat. Just then a lovely lady entered the office, someone Tiara was more than familiar with.
Rosetta came to give Tiara a tour of the school. To her surprise Director Chloe had Tiara join her group. Before she could ask in detail Chloe was like “That’s an order”.
Not long into the tour Tiara was like “Come on Rosetta. Stop calling me Lady Tiara, or do you want me to address you as ‘Rosetta-Senpai’, hmmm?” Rosetta obliged. First things first. Rosetta introduced Tiara to her classmates. One was at the library, Lynette.
Lynette loved reading books. Tiara found a note inside one of them with what appeared to be a love poem. Very interesting. Let’s remember this just in case.
At the dodgeball court Rosetta introduced the last two teammates, Ashley and Lavie. They fill the “bicker on the outside but care deeply for each other on the inside” ship quota.
At one point in the tour Tiara fainted. The reason was funny. Suddenly the OP. I thought we’d get it at the end of the episode. Oh well, it’s nice.
While out cold we got a brief hint of her leaving the family home on not the best of terms. Her onee-chan Eliza pleaded with her to stay but she refused. This wouldn’t be the only hint of trouble in paradise.
Clearly the sisters cared about each other but something big must have happened to make Tiara leave.
After a touching scene on the school roof our lovely couple passed the cafeteria. Tiara wanted some grub. She accidentally bumped into another group.
Things seemed fine at first when Yue asked Tiara about her tiara. She said it was a gift from her sister. Yue probably figured out she was royalty and coldly pushed her aside. Definitely something big happened with Tiara’s family.
At the group’s dorm room they discussed what to do about Tiara’s bed situation. There were only four beds in the room and they were now five. There was an empty room next door with a bed for two people. They didn’t think it was a good idea for Tiara to sleep alone so they left it up to Rosetta. Her face said it all.
The episode ended with a better explanation of the group’s status. Girls are split in three ranks. Tiara’s team are Lapis rank, aka the lowest. As far as school privileges went they had to wait till last. What’s worse, all four of Tiara’s teammates were in danger of getting expelled should they fail their classes again.
An excellent start. I only focused on our five heroines but the rest of the girls all look quite interesting, cute and sexy. There’s a mystery and we got some ships all set so there’s plenty to get hyped for in the weeks to come.
Ah yes. I have a feeling the idol thing will be treated as secondary like in Uma Musume (Gay horsies) while the show focuses more on magic. Cool with me.
