Blu-Ray with English subtitle

Genre: comedy drama

Log line: Several high school girls become the members of a band club in the school and they spend slow and easy daily lives.

Different from a theory of making a drama, the situation in this anime doesn’t become serious, even if something happens in each episode. They usually drink tea, eat cake, and don’t practice so much. The audiences don’t see any conflict between parents and children because basically parents are not shown even in the house. The audiences basically don’t see any conflict between teachers and students. There is one teacher but she looks almost like one of the characters’ friends. There is no boyfriend and girlfriend drama. The audiences don’t see male characters, so much. Despite these things, this anime became very popular and many people bought musical instruments because of this anime, in Japan. I enjoyed this anime, too.

I haven’t read the comic version.
