Review by Astrid:
I had finished Uta no Prince Sama at the time I started watching this anime. Music, Shoujo, Slice of Life – perfect anime! I was a bit suspicious that it didn’t say ‘’romance’’ or anything – and there isn’t any! All I can say is that you shouldn’t compare this to Uta no Prince Sama, like many people did before.
If you read more of my reviews on Wowbeat, you must’ve noticed my weak spot is character development. I love character development, and this anime definitely didn’t disappoint in it! The story is also very funny, cute and sometimes also a bit sad.
Overall:Great plot, sometimes a bit too slow, sometimes a bit too fast. Great character development. I really recommend watching this anime if you like music and dorky characters too, in their own way.
