Crunchyroll recently added the sequel to Pripara, Idol Time Pripara, to its ever-growing list of streamable anime. Airing back in early 2017, the Pripara series is known for its cute art style and idols.
Here is the plot of Idol Time Pripara according to Anime News Network:
The story focuses on Yui, a girl who lives in the town of Paparajuku, and who dreams of being an idol, even if she realizes that being an idol is next to impossible for her. Her friends often remark on how much she dreams about it. But then, the PriPara idol theme park opens in her town, and that an idol named Laala is coming to town from Parajuku, which only makes Yui dream even bigger. The new PriPara theme park has been updated with new concepts. However, due to a system error, Laala is no longer able to PriPara Change.
The premise of the anime series centers around the term “yume kawa” which is the shortened version of “yume kawaii.” This translates to “dreamy cute”, and Idol Time Pripara‘s characters have a very bubbly art style and personality, similar to the “dreamy” aesthetic. The protagonist, Yui, is especially referred to as a “yume kawa” girl.
Currently, all 24 episodes are available to watch on Crunchyroll for free and premium users! Are you going to check it out?
