This particular season has a great many flaws. Before you watch this season, ask yourself - how many times can I hear the word 'Revolution' in one minute, nay, an entire 13 episode season, before I get annoyed?. Ask yourself that question and consider that if one character says it, the entire roomful of a dozen or more will parrot it back and this might happen multiple times in one episode. Remember too, that they say Revolution because I would suppose there is no Japanese equivalent...it doesn't always sound quite right.

 

Another flaw introduced is in the excessive extra cast members introduced yet again to Haru, our main heroine. Harmony is good and all, but now there is simply too many faces, too many voices, too many people to squeeze in an effective showing over 13 episodes. Last season, we were given 5 more cast members. Now we are given another 7, with heavy focus on another group, and the core original group is halfway ignored. The newer additions of this and the last seasons seem to lack the charm of the original group, with more extreme negative personalities that take up most of the screen time it simply drags the show downhill.  It is the perfect example of a show seeing something that might add some interest and diversity to a show and just extending it to the point that it becomes detrimental instead of beneficial. The core group is left to harmonizing between themselves and suddenly reappearing right at the end for the competition. Again, Haru watches from the sidelines. 

 

This season had a great deal of potential but just fell flat. The music was good, the harmonies were right up there, but Haru seemed to be forgotten in all of it. A few scenes focused in on her interactions in a meaningful and even caring way, but generally this season focused on pursuing the international spotlight, with Haru's heart being forgotten. 

 

I only hope the next season is better. I personally rated this as 3 stars because of the general lack of core STRISH group screentime, the extremely annoying Revolution parroting (I could barely continue it), and the excessive cast. I only hope in the future, this series will contract back to the core group and focus more on the relationships that develop as opposed to pelting fans with pretty boys that have bad attitudes.
