Funimation describes the show as:

In the glamorous metropolis of Tokyo Midi City, music—and the dream of musical superstardom—is everything! Here, “battle of the bands” is more than teen rivalry it’s a chance for groups to compete for the honor of playing atop the city’s highest tower. When catgirl cutie Cyan stumbles into the musical world, she finds herself swept up bythe dream of fame and rocks her way to the top.

The original Show By Rock!! aired during the Spring 2015 broadcast season. Funimation currently holds the rights to the title in North America. The show is currently available on YouTube and FunimationNow
