BanG Dream!

This is an animation edition of a story distributed by an extended mix of media — comics, novels, smart phone games, live performances, and so on. A girl named Kasumi, when she was a little child, looked up at the starry sky and sensed some “vibrations from the stars.” Ever since then, she has been searching for some brilliant, exciting, “star-like” experiences. Now she is a high school student. One day, she found a star-shaped guitar at a pawn shop and sensed some “vibrations” from it. She talked to the pawnbroker’s daughter, Arisa, who kindly gave her the guitar. So, she decided to launch a band. Together with Arisa and other friends at the high school, Kasumi is working hard to have a live performance at a live music hall.
