Because of the rising popularity of “local heroine fighter” of a certain city, becoming national stars, many cities create their own “local heroines” as part of their promotional campaign. Meanwhile in Hinano City, An Akagi and Mikan Kise created their own small, do-it-yourself sentai stage play to entertain Mikan’s little sister. Accidentally, Hinano city tourism representative and student council president, Misaki Shirogane, saw their stage play. Interested, Misaki invited An and Mikan to help her creating Hinano City’s own local heroine.
Just like Sakura Quest, Action Heroine Cheer Fruits also tells a story about tourism and small town revitalization. In this anime, however, the main characters have to promote Hinano City by using “local heroines” gimmick rather than micronation. The major difference is, Action Heroine Cheer Fruits tells the story from the perspective of high school students while Sakura Quest uses working adults as main characters.
Overall, the first episode of Action Heroine Cheer Fruits feels lighthearted and sincere. If you are looking for simple, save-the-homeland type of story like Sakura Quest or Love Live!, this anime is recommended.
