Pony Canyon describes CUE! anime plot as:
The brand-new voice acting talent agency AiRBLUE has neither seasoned pros nor famous stars. What it does have is a group of trainee voice actresses whose individualism and personality shines through their inexperience. Each one is looking for a way to harness her talents and make her dreams come true!
However, sooner or later, all these dreams will run up against the harshness of reality. No matter how devotedly they practice, not all the candidates can pass every audition.
Can they endure through anguish, setbacks, and discord? If the hurdles all trainees must face trip them up, can they recover and rise again?
The story of these fledgling voice actresses is now ready for the director to call “action!”
