Aira Harune and Rizumu Amamiya were scouted to become Prism Stars. As a total beginner, Aira gets cold feet without any knowledge of the Prism Show, while Rizumu dreams of performing the mysterious "Aurora Rising", a legendary Prism Jump performed by her mother. Joined by a veteran Prism Star, Mion Takamine, the three form a friendship till it grows where they eventually form their own group called as "MARs" and work towards performing the "Aurora Rising".

One day, she finds out that the manager of a newly-opened shop is recruiting middle school girls who can do Prism Dance, and immediately applies. Naru begins to Prism Dance at the audition, and an aura she's never experienced spreads out in front of her. At that moment, a mysterious girl named Rinne asks her if she can see "rainbow music."
