One of the best shows ever made to this day, and a classic of its own! Nov. 23 2010
By Sebastien Bilodeau - Published on Amazon.com
It totally swept me away from the start to the end! This is a great mix of comedy and tears that draws us inside a world following the adventure of Sora Nagino who is the upcoming star learning how hard it is to rise to the top as a circus star, and one day become the dreams of young children and parents alike. Fives stars out of five won't even give justice to this amazing anime. Highly recommended for everyone of any age.

It's showtime! Oct. 1 2011
By Erick Reilly - Published on Amazon.com
Kaleido Star tells the story of a sixteen-year-old girl named Sora, who moves from Japan to California to audition for a role on Kaleido Stage. The shows in said stage are like a ballet, a circus acrobat act, and a light show rolled into one. It's genuinely suspenseful, lighthearted, and at times, undeniably cool. The cast includes a buff cop, a girl who loves comedy, a guy who harbors a crush on the heroine, a cute baby seal, and many more.
The packaging says it's rated TV-14, but I really disagree with that rating. Yeah, there's a character who wants to see Sora naked, but Sora catches on to his game from the get-go and does everything in her power to prevent such a thing from happening. It's a clean show.

An Amazing Anime! Jan. 17 2011
By TYC - Published on Amazon.com

I have watched anime for a few years now and picked up Kaleido Star on a whim. I was truly stunned at how good this anime title is. The story centers around a young Japanese woman name Sora and her quest to become a star on the Kaleido Stage (similar to Cirque du Soleil). The anime details her struggles to establish herself as a Kaleido performer, as well as her adjustment from life in Japan to the United States, where the Kaleido Stage is located. It is an anime title that is appropriate for all ages and one of the best titles I have ever come across.
Note : I normally watch anime in English but I would highly recommend watching this in Japanese because the voice quality is so much better.

Good anime to watch. Although I preferred season two better, season one does have some good episodes. Overall, it is a good anime to watch

Coming of Age on the Flying Trapeze Dec 19 2011
By Mvargus - Published on Amazon.com
If it wasn't for how often the Cirque de Soleil type shows in this series cheerfully break the lawa of physics this could have been filmed in live action rather than animated. And it would have likely been a huge hit on Nickelodeon or Disney, the story it that good.

And that is what makes this series something special. The story follows Naegino Sora who comes to the US to join a permanent circus based in an unnamed coastal town called Kaleido Stage. Despite arriving late after her luggage is grabbed by a street thief she is offered a position by Kalos the owner of the show. Thus begins a series of trials as she tries to win the repsect and friendship of the other performers.

This series has a lot of heart and humor. Each of Sora's trials is approached with care. She gets through them with a never say die attitude and a bit of help from a few close friends.

The animation here is nothing special. The artists clearly understood that the story needed to be in teh forefront and avoided making the animation too good. It is colorful and the motion of the characters is smooth.

Children will love the bright colors and the impressive arcobatic shows, but adults will likely also find the story well written and dramatic. This series is a great example of how animated shows should no longer be considered "just for children."
