Final Comments: I didn’t think i’d like Cinderella Girls so much! I thought it was just going to be okay. But wow! It’s better than okay! It’s magically! The Cinderella Girls have a magically spell on me now. The first episode it was put onto me. Then the more progression I made with the show, the magically spell got even more severe! Now the spell won’t wear off and I don’t care! What amazing story telling, character progression, and animation! Although the animation slips a little and they use still frames a bit too much. This show is wonderful and magically! This is a “must watch” for idol lovers! For Anime lovers! The characters are all lovable! The emotions that they tried to convey were felt! The performance sequences were beautiful! This show will cast it’s spell onto you! It’s telling me to go to Season 2 now. I can’t fight it! THE MAGIC IS TOO STRONG! – Richard K. Moe

Check out the P.V. down below! Let the magic spell from the Cinderella Girls reach you!
