Plot Summary: High school girl Nanako Usami became her town Nagarekawa’s local idol at the request of her uncle. She and her upperclassman Yukari- a girl who seems perfect but ends up being air-headed- both become idols of their provincial area. They get interviewed (by the town’s shopping center), go on television (low-budget cable), and hold concerts (on the roof of the department store). The girls’ salaries come from the town’s taxes. Together, the two form the “locodol” unit, Nagarekawa Girls. (from ANN)

ANN The Summer 2014 Anime Preview Guide: Locodol

by The Anime News Network Editorial Team, Jul 2nd 2014

Episode 1 and looks like it might be a good show as long as it doesn’t take a turn for the stupid and keeps going the direction it has shown as small town people doing small town things and just enjoying life.

Has a Non non Biyori feel to it, like comfort food but it is anime.

4/5 for episode 1

Episode 2

What you expected your uncle to actually pay you? :lol: Now jsut be careful of the yuri and make a new friend and have fun together. Don’t forget to exercise after eating all those pastries!

So far, still good. Nice calm show to relax with, nothing overly, well anything. Even the humor is low level and comforting show all around.

Yeah this is my Comfort Food show of the season.

That moment when you are awaiting the new episode and then realize something frightening. :blink:

The studio making this is also the studio that made Straight Jacket.

I know the show aired on TBS, but I thought Fuji Creative was the license holder, because if it was an actual TBS title, we’d be in Blu-Ray hold spiral.

###Locodol Anime Gets 3rd OVA

"We tried to make a promotional video" episode slated for home video release in June

I’m hoping the main series sold well enough so that Sentai considers picking up this and the Christmas special.

3rd OVA appeared on Crunchyroll this morning.
