As a MariMite fan, I like that their style is very reminiscent of Class S estatics, but for some reason, it seems to me that their musical style is not very consistent with this. However, this is only their first appearance.

Ayasa is pretty famous on YouTube for her anime/game soundtracks violin covers so it's a really good choice:

It’ll be nice to have another band in the franchise that can play live shows.

It's not often I hear of a rock band that uses a violin, and I like the song they performed. I would like to see more of this group, but it would look like to do so I would have to get the BanG Dream app.

Heck yeah! I've been following Ayasa's work for a few years and it's so great that she is joining Bandori. So happy about that.
Also fun that mika is part of Morfonica since she was instructor to drummers of Roselia and Popipa.

While I recommend game for being rather pleasant experience, that would be not necessary:
Bushiroad has been uploading music to both Spotify and Apple Music. They might have skipped something but I think most of it is available to listen.
For now no Morfonica since they didn't do anything yet but I'm sure it will appear.

^ Alright! I would check out their Spotify account or Apple music store account down the road. Thanks!

A few examples:

Minori Chihara https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtUbHegDmmM (or just CMB on their own https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xn6YjTZRzbs )

Nana Mizuki https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1u6vLv-awOA (band name Cherry Boys)

Yuki Kajiura / FictionJunction https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5kphpt9bgA (with vocalists and the Front Band Members, note the wah-wah pedal used with violin).

Listened to a bit and i like it. Nice to see more "unconventional" instruments, that you wouldnt expect with this sort of music,, being used in bands.

All we need now is an epic rock style band with bagpipes!

Game rather than anime, but there are Uillean pipes in the Image Theme of Xenosaga II composed by Yuki Kajiura:

More recently Yuki Kajiura wrote 「to the next era」 for the JAM Project album, The Age of Dragon Knights (first 66 seconds of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GykGRAIVfM has a sample).

Sorry for not responding to your comment sooner, but I want to say thank you for sharing these links, Omiya. That is a few more groups to check out. Very Happy
