This page is an intro to the series, based on the article from KASHA.
 
Story Intro

Tanaka Youko dreams of becoming an idol singer. Since she lives in the country, she decides to go to the big city (Shibuya) to accomplish her dreams. On the way there, she meets another girl named Saki, who dreams of becoming a famous actress. However, Saki has run away from home to follow her dreams. The two girls become friends, and try to support each other in their quests. Youko also has a pet flying squirrel named Muu who never seems to be able to fly straight - he's always crashing into things!

When they reach Shibuya, they have trouble finding work. The girls have various run-ins with others in showbiz, namely strange managers and hot-tempered rivals. Nothing phases Youko however, and she remains cheerful and positive no matter what befalls them, even to the point of leading Saki in song when they have to

spend the night in the park, or leading groups of people dancing across the tops of street benches.

This is very cheerful story of Youko and Saki is no different than the story of many young people who dream of one day becoming a famous star in showbiz. It also shows some of the hardships and pitfalls of such a dream (albeit in a humorous light).

The music to this series is very well-done. Part of the reason for the quality of the musical interludes is the voices for the two girls. The voice actress for Youko is Kanai Mika (Mimette in Sailor Moon S, Mei Mah in KO Century Beast Warriors, Extra in Idol Project, Kumi in Debut) and Saki's voice actress is Hayashibara Megumi (Lina in

Slayers, Lime in Saber Marionette, female Ranma in Ranma 1/2, Rei in Evangelion, NukuNuku in NukuNuku, and many, many other roles). If you are a fan of old Hollywood musicals or love positive series about show business, this series is recommended.
