PrePopstar (is called Pretty Popstar) is the 4Kids dub of the anime, PriPara.

There is a sequel for PrePopstar, titled as 'PrePopstar Time', which includes a cast of new characters (and the old). There is also 'PreChannel', a 'spin-off' PrePopstar series.

Summary[edit | edit source]

PrePopstar takes place in a universe where every girl can become a pop star by getting a PreTicket, and going inside the magical place called PriPara!

Lala, the main character, isn't interested, but one day, while finding a pop star's PreTicket Purse, she decides to return it to the owner, but ends up becoming a pop star!
