Pretty Rhythm (プリティーリズム, Puritī Rizumu) is a Japanese multimedia franchise produced by Syn Sophia and Takara Tomy aimed at girls in elementary school.[1] Originating with rhythm and dress-up arcade games, the series' popularity has expanded to include several anime and manga adaptations.

The Pretty Rhythm franchise was first launched in July 2010 with the arcade game Pretty Rhythm: Mini Skirt. After the original Pretty Rhythm games ended service in July 2014, Takara Tomy began publishing the PriPara spin-off series from 2014 to 2018. It was then followed up by Kiratto Pri Chan in 2018, with all series grouped under the collective name Pretty Series (プリティーシリーズ, Puritī Shirīzu).[2]

In addition to the franchise, a spinoff media franchise, King of Prism, was launched in 2016 focusing on the male characters featured in the 2013 anime Pretty Rhythm: Rainbow Live, which was aimed at an older female audience.

Anime[edit]

Due to the popularity of Pretty Rhythm: Mini Skirt, in 2011, Takara Tomy partnered with South Korean toy company Sonokong to produce up to five anime series, projecting for ¥5.5 billion by the end of March 2012.[3] Production costs estimated to about ¥7-8 billion.[3] The series is animated by Tatsunoko Productions and published by Avex Pictures, with all shows broadcasting on TV Tokyo.

Merchandise[edit]

Prism Stone[edit]

Prism Stone, a brand-name store featured in all series, was launched in April 2011 to coincide with Pretty Rhythm: Aurora Dream as a tie-in to the franchise, with several shops located nationwide in Japan.[1] Aside from selling character goods, Prism Stone also sells a junior apparel line in "lovely" and "pop" designs.[57] The apparel line was produced in collaboration with Japanese fashion brand DreamV.[58][59] The store also carried clothing from junior apparel brands Roni and EarthMagic,[60] who have released collaboration Prism Stones for the arcade games in the past.[61][62]

Dear Crown[edit]

In 2012, Dear Crown, a second apparel brand store, was launched at Odaiba Venus Fort as a tie-in to Pretty Rhythm: Dear My Future.[63][64] Dear Crown was described as a sister apparel brand and counterpart to Prism Stone, featuring junior clothing in "cool" and "sexy" designs.[57] In the anime series, the shop was represented by the main characters' rivals, such as Puretty,[64] Bell Rose,[47] and June. Dear Crown closed down in 2014 following the end of Pretty Rhythm: Rainbow Live, but it reopened in 2015 when the brand was introduced in PriPara.

Criticism[edit]

In August 2018, Icrea attempted to launch a line of body pillow covers featuring the lead female characters in swimsuits and posing suggestively for sale at Comic Market, as a collaboration with the Pretty All Friends merchandise line. They were met with criticism from Japanese and Korean fans for sexualizing characters from a children's show.[65] Tatsunoko Productions responded by making the products for purchase on Internet only before cancelling it altogether.

Reception[edit]

Pretty Rhythm: Mini Skirt was popular among girls between 8–10 years old, with over 2,000 units available in arcades in 2011.[1] By 2012, Prism Stone had earned ¥65 million in merchandise sales.[64]
