Metropolis of music, MIDICITY. A kitty girl wearing gothic lolita clothing named Cyan is scouted by Maple Arisugawa, the president of a music agency. From there, she meets Chuchu (a pun off of the sound that rabbits make) the honor student rabbit girl, a net geek dog girl named Retoree (from “Retriever”), and an alien sheep (?) girl named Moa. Together, they form the band named “Plasmagica,” and aim for the top of the world.

However, the path there is long and tough, and keeping in high spirits is important. By battling against other strange bands, Plasmagica slowly grows toward a top-grade band. In the end, they’ll be a band that becomes the driving force of MIDICITY’s music industry… Maybe?

Once again Plasmagica are formed to same Midicity. There is a new villain in town and the bands are trying to stop it and succeed in the music industry. In this season a new Rival band is introduce and a new villain that is trying to control the music industry is revealed. this music in this season was just as good as the first season. The amount of focus distributed between the bands was the same as in the show wasn’t focused on only Plasmagica. You get to see some back story about different characters.

The over all story of this season wasn’t as good as season 1. It was fun and funny at times. It had good music. It contained a good amount of drama. However it didn’t stand out the way season 1 did. It was okay…

Overall Rate: 6/10
