Uta no Prince-sama

I haven't done a review in absolutely ages! I've actually finished an anime though so I'm going to write this up otherwise it will be ages before I finish another anime :P

UtaPri is a 13 episode anime, it's very short with a single plot. It was based off a girl's dating sim game so it's your typical girl surrounded by a group of bishonen and a female friend to balance things out. 

Not gonna lie, I didn't like the main character very much. I found her incredibly annoying for the first several episodes, it was only towards the end that she grew on me and I didn't mind her. I think this is why I'm giving the anime a low score, because you kinda have to like the main lead to enjoy the show. The harem can have whatever personalities they wish, but I feel the main lead has to be likeable, which she wasn't for me at the start. The problem with short anime is that there isn't much character development, but I think the anime was a good advertisement for the main games because you could get a flavour for what the characters were like. 

I thought the plot was simplistic and it felt like it was aimed for the younger audience. It was so incredibly cheesy to say the least. It basically showed Nanami's, the main character's, journey as well as how Starrish was formed. The opening concert you see in the very first video (and the same ending you see after every episode) was a pretty big spoiler, it showed how everything works out. Not going to lie though, I did really enjoy the ending and it made me smile, I do love cheesy happy endings and I'm a big sop for cheesy pop music. 

The music imo was fantastic, it's just my thing LOL. Cheesy boyband pop music. If you don't like that, you will probably hate the whole show, full stop. I later discovered that Mamoru Miyano was one of the seiyuus and singers so that was a bit of a bonus. 

Overall I gave it 2/5. It was very much a guilty pleasure for me and I admit it has a lot of faults, but it's so cheesy I can't help but watch it!

LOL, it was definitely a guilty pleasure anime for me. The whole reason I actually watched it was because Mamoru Miyano was voicing twins and I was like AWWW YUUUS. I love animes overflowing with pretty boys, haha./shot

I downloaded the opening song though, it's really catchy!

Yeeees, omg. Knowing Mamoru Miyano was voicing the twins instantly made me want to carry on watching, love his voice so much!

Definitely! I could listen to it over and over! XD
