Shuwa-shuwa, dre-dreaming, yeah!note 
Pastel Life is a spinoff animation series in the BanG Dream! multimedia franchise, which started in May 2018.

The series consists of short 3-minute animations that focus on the daily lives of Pastel*Palettes, one of the five bands featured in the spinoff game BanG Dream! Girls Band Party!. There's Aya Maruyama, the ever-optimistic vocalist, Chisato Shirasagi, the former child actor turned bassist, Eve Wakamiya, the half-foreign keyboardist with a love for bushido, Hina Hikawa, the guitarist who can be a bit too brutally honest at times, and Maya Yamato, the socially awkward drummer with an extensive knowledge of audio equipment.

The entire series can be watched on the official BanG Dream! YouTube channel here, with subtitles available including in English.


This series contains examples of:

  • All Just a Dream: The bulk of Episode 6 turns out to be a dream that Hina recalls to her bandmates.
  • Celebrity Is Overrated: When Aya and Chisato try to go shopping, they try to put on disguises knowing that they're going to be swarmed by crowds of fans if they get spotted. It doesn't work, and they end up retreating to the studio before they can even reach the mall.
  • "Do It Yourself" Theme Tune: "Shuwarin☆Dreaming", the opening theme, is performed by the cast of Pastel*Palettes.
  • Precious Puppy: Chisato is shown to be taking care of one in her part-time job at the dog cafe.
  • Recycled Soundtrack: Most of the background tracks are borrowed from Girls Band Party.
  • Super-Deformed: The characters are drawn in the same chibi style as in the map sprites of Girls Band Party, with slightly more realistic proportions.

  • Write What You Know: [1] When Hina lands the part of a little sister character in a drama series, Chisato tries to get her to invoke this trope, since Hina actually does have an older sister. But every time Chisato tries to get her to picture herself in various scenes, Hina just goes on rambling tangents about her sister that don't really help her acting ability.

How well does it match the trope?
