JEM, Is not a particular anime.
But it's quite a good roleplay ^_^

Theme song
(listen its really good xD)

Jem is an American animated television series that ran from 1985 to 1988 in U.S. first-run
syndication. The cartoon is about a singer named Jem, her band, the Holograms, and their
adventures. Catch phrases from the show included "Showtime, Synergy!" and "Truly
outrageous!" (the latter usually associated with supporting character Kimber).

The series was a joint collaboration between Hasbro and Sunbow Productions, the same team
responsible for GI Joe and Transformers, and was intended to target female viewers. The
creator of the series was Christy Marx, who also had been a staff writer for the
aforementioned programs.

Despite the fact that the show was originally designed by Hasbro for the purpose of
marketing a line of dolls, it employed several interweaving storylines and a complex
backstory — both unusual in an animated television series during the 1980s. The show
also features one-minute music videos, tying it in with the concept of MTV and its
burgeoning popularity. The animated series still retains a powerful fan-following

[edit] The Holograms
Jem (Lead Vocals) — Jem is the leader of the Holograms and the most popular singer of
her day. She is the alter-ego of Jerrica Benton, owner of Starlight Music. Jerrica also
runs Starlight House, a home for foster girls. Using the power of Synergy, an incredibly
powerful holographic/audio synthesizer, Jerrica can become Jem by touching her special
star-shaped earrings (the "Jemstar earrings") while saying "Showtime, Synergy" (Jem
changes back to Jerrica by saying "show's over, Synergy"). A primary storyline of the
series involves her hiding her identity from others, especially Rio Pacheco, who loves
both Jem and Jerrica. The character was voiced by Samantha Newark and her singing voice
was recorded by Britta Phillips.

Kimber Benton (Keyboards, Synthesizers and Backup Vocals) — Kimber is Jerrica's younger
sister. She is the primary songwriter of the Holograms. Episodes in which Kimber is the
main focus often involve romance and rebellion. Kimber, more than once, has been shown to
be a little jealous of all the media attention that Jem gets. The character was voiced by
Cathianne Blore.

Aja Leith (Lead Guitarist and Backup Vocals) — Aja is a Chinese-American foster girl who
grew up with the other Holograms at Starlight House. She was the first one adopted by
Jacqui and Emmett Benton, Jerrica & Kimber's parents. Naturally handy and a sports fan,
Aja is cool and level headed. She is the girlfriend of Craig Phillips, the brother of the
Misfit's keytarist, Stormer. Aja is almost always the driver of the Rockin' Roadster. The
character was voiced by Cathianne Blore.

Shana Elmsford (Synth Drums, Bass Guitarist and Backup Vocals) — Shana is an
African-American foster girl who grew up with Kimber, Jerrica and Aja at Starlight House.
Despite her shy demeanor she eventually became good friends with the other girls. She
designs many of the Holograms' costumes and even left the band for a short time, wrongly
assuming the others wanted her out of the band for good, to pursue a career in fashion as
a designer for actress Liz Stratton. However, when Stratton's unreasonable demands and
egotistical behavior became too much for Shana to take, she walked off the job and
returned to the band, where she learned that the girls never wanted her out, they just
wanted to see her fulfill her dream of being a professional designer. She switched to
playing the bass guitar with Raya taking over on drums. The character was voiced by Cindy

Carmen 'Raya' Alonso (Synth Drums) — Raya is the talented drummer of the Holograms.
Quiet, kind and unassuming, Raya won the position of drummer for the Holograms during a
worldwide talent search, beating close competitor Craig Phillips (Stormer's Brother) in a
drum duel. Raya is the only member of the Holograms who comes from a traditional family.
The character was voiced by Linda Dangcil.
