Kaleido Star Wings of the Future Chapter 1

The world has long been under the control of large powers. People live in small, walled cities and the owner of a kaleidoscope, Kaleido Star, leads them in a fight against those who would take away the power in this modern story. Elements of fantasy transpose alongside elements that are grounded in reality to produce such a compelling story that readers will find it difficult to put down.

A kind police officer gives her a ride to Kaleido Stage, but she discovers that she's missed her audition. Her idol, the star performer Layla Hamilton, advises her to return to Japan but a performer's unexpected injury provides Sora with a window of opportunity. She's given the rare chance to perform by the Stage's owner, Kalos (who turns out to be a mysterious man who had eyed her legs earlier). After a faltering effort, Sora is dismissed from Kaleido Stage and prepares to return to Japan, but then Kalos reconsiders, and lets Layla know that someday Sora's performance will be the main draw at the circus.

In the second season, Sora returns to the stage after attempting the Legendary Great Maneuver with Layla. This leaves Layla with an injured shoulder and unable to perform. The absence of her co-star, having retired to further a career in Broadway productions, prompts a slight decline of the Kaleido Stage. Because of this Kalos brings in a new recruit, Leon Oswald, a famous trapeze artist. It seems at first that Leon is reminded very much of someone due to Sora's presence, and at times this causes him to either be really rude or really sweet to Sora. (Source: kaleidostar.fandom.com)

Kaleido Star (カレイドスター Kareido Sutā) is an anime series produced by Japanese studio Gonzo Digimation Holding.[1] The series was created by Junichi Sato, who also directed the first season, and written by Reiko Yoshida. Kaleido Star: New Wings was directed by Yoshimasa Hiraike.

Despite being put off by the recap episodes, Anime New Network positively reviewed the first Volume of Kaleido Star: New Wings. While critiquing the story as "straight from the shōjo drama playbook," the review held praise for the visuals, stating that "the best thing about Kaleido Star is, far and away, the amazing animation and production values. The circus scenes are wildly original and sometimes breathtaking; the animation quality hasn't dipped at all in the second season." Cynthia Martinez also won notice for developing her performance as Sora. (Source: kaleidostar.fandom.com)
