Show by Rock!! Original Game Story
Metropolis of music, MIDICITY. A kitty girl wearing gothic lolita clothing named Cyan is scouted by Maple Arisugawa, the president of a music agency. From there, she meets Chuchu (a pun off of the sound that rabbits make) the honor student rabbit girl, a net geek dog girl named Retoree (from “Retriever”), and an alien sheep (?) girl named Moa. Together, they form the band named “Plasmagica,” and aim for the top of the world.
However, the path there is long and tough, and keeping in high spirits is important. By battling against other strange bands, Plasmagica slowly grows toward a top-grade band. In the end, they’ll be a band that becomes the driving force of MIDICITY’s music industry… Maybe?
Gonna be a music millionaire!
The game inspired the 12-episode Show By Rock!! anime series which premiered in April 2015. Furthermore, a musical based on the game is slated on February 2015, featuring the franchise’s Shingan Crimsonz four-member visual kei band.
