King of Prism is the first piece of media that will be released in the West for the Pretty Rhythm franchise, but it’s certainly not the first installment. This original film takes place after the third season of the Pretty Rhythm anime about magical ice skating, so some people might be confused when watching the film when it makes its USA debut at the Los Angeles Anime Film Festival this month.
The titular character of Clean Freak! Aoyama kun is just that—a clean freak. He’s also on the soccer team, making him kind of a weirdo. Luckily for him, there are plenty of other weirdos around him. This includes a girl whose hobbies include lock-picking and using said skill to stalk her beloved Aoyama. And gosh darn it she’s adorable.
