Uta no Prince-sama: Maji Love 1000%

Sigh.. Like I said in my previous post, it’s usually the same thing with the Japenese. It’s either about Loli’s, Idols or something that involves clubs. That being said, here we go again with a new show about, yes you’ve guessed it, idols!

This time, however, it’s a show involving  mainly male idols. I personally don’t like to watch this sort of thing, as it somewhat triggers my gaydar. But in order to write this properly, I did watch a couple of episodes.

The show looks pretty decent, they certainly put a lot of effort into the characters. But the story is often very predictable, which leaves very little room for unexpected twists in the story.

Plot Summary: Nanami Haruka wants to be a song writer, so she attends an idol training school filled with beautiful bishounen. The school pairs each aspiring songwriter with an aspiring idol, but Haruka finds herself paired with 3 bishouden idols. To make things more difficult, Nanami is also not allowed to date any of her beautiful partners.

Mawaru Penguin Drum

Wow.. Really a unique show. The show started out looking pretty morbid, so you might get the wrong impression. But after you get passed that, it turns out to be a pretty amusing show.

The show looks good, no complaints about that. As for the story goes, it’s a really unique concept. A girl dies because of her illness and suddenly she gets resurrected by a pinguin spirit.

Plot Summary: The story centres around the lives of three siblings, Takakura Kanba, Takakura Shouma and their terminally ill sister Takakura Himari. Himari passes away after going out on a trip with her brothers. She was however, miraculously saved by a spirit thriving in a penguin-shaped hat. In return for her extended life, the twins must search for an item known as the Penguin Drum with the aid of three penguins which are visible only to the siblings.
