(One episode watched):

Writing the synopsis for BanG Dream was difficult, because episode one doesn't exactly give a crystal-clear impression of what this show will be about and where it is headed. It seemed like the first half of the episode wandered about, introducing us to Kasumi's new school and herself, but giving us little idea what the premise of the series would be. This notion of 'Star Beat' that she holds is very vague and I wonder if that was intentional or just an act of carelessness. The second half of the episode didn't make complete sense either, as Kasumi seems to latch onto a guitar in a pawn shop storage room, and won't let go of it even though it doesn't belong to her and there has been little indication so far that she values music or has any talent for it. It just seems unlikely. We'll have to wait for episode two to get much of an idea of what exactly the premise will be and whether it will be plausible or the characters will be likeable. So far, this show confuses me but doesn't actively turn me off. I don't know if Kasumi or anyone will develop much of a personality, but at least she doesn't strike me as uninteresting either.
