This compilation features some of the earliest videos of this franchise, including ultrarare footage from the very 1st Live. The performance shown here, of Bandori’s first original song 「Yes! BanG_Dream!」, was the first time anyone heard the song in public.
All the clips here are from what some fans call the Betadori era.
The first manga 「BanG_Dream!: Star Beat」 served as the basis for the original character designs, which were vastly different from how they are today. Within half a year, four Lives were held. Betadori came to an end when the franchise underwent a major renewal in 2016 that encompassed a rework of the characters, a dropping of the underscore in the franchise name, and a reset of the Live count back to zero.

Let us revisit the days of Betadori. Before the anime and the game came into the picture. Starting from the humble Live houses. This is simply a story of a girl chasing her Dream.
