Anime Info Page
Idol anime Dynamic Chord follows the musical careers and personal lives of several bands under the Dynamic Chord agency and music label.
Similar to fellow fall 2017 anime Tsukipro the animation, Dynamic Chord is about 4 bands made up of beautiful boys. However, this one has a much more gloomy feel to it. Based on a series of romance games, it’s always going to be difficult to make a captivating story without touching on the romance themes. Unfortunately the anime has fallen flat so far, and I don’t really care about the characters or their groups. Plus the animation for the live scenes was just really bad…
I have been interested in playing the Dynamic Chord games for a while, but the anime is not a great advertisement as of yet. However, the music is REALLY nice, and I recommend watching the episode with headphones. My highlight for the episode was the unexplained scene of Shota Aoi singing about 10 minutes into the episode (it was so random but if I can hear Aoi’s voice I’m happy). It was also cute how the character’s names were used in the credits for the insert songs.
All in all, I would not recommend this anime unless you are either a big 2D idol fan like myself or are already a fan of Dynamic Chord. The music was the only thing that saved it for me.
