This is what Sing a Bit of Harmony is about:
The mysterious Shion is a newcomer to Keibu High School and quickly rises to become the most popular girl there. No wonder, she is beautiful, has an open-hearted nature, but at the same time is very mysterious and has an extraordinary talent for sports. What is particularly unusual, however, is her beautiful singing, with which she captures her classmates. To everyone's surprise, she was particularly taken with the loner Satomi, who she absolutely wants to bring joy to and sings her a little in the middle of the classroom!
Soon after, Satomi discovers Shion's big secret: Actually, she is the prototype of a new artificial intelligence, an android! Satomi's childhood friend, tech nerd Toma, handsome Gotchan, stubborn Aya and judoka "Thunder" are all charmed by her singing voice and try to help Shion on her mission.
