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.

The Idolm@ster

Seriously, the Japanese have issues to work out. It’s always Loli’s, Idols or atleast something to do with clubs.

This time it’s about a whole group of girls who all wish to become idols. So it doesn’t take much of an imagination to realize that it’s a show about music, relationships and performances of sorts.

The show looks okay, but like I stated above, the story isn’t that original. Not only is it not that original, it’s pretty easy to figure out how the story goes when you think about it. But despite that, it’s not a bad show to watch.

Plot Summary: The arduous struggle of the 13 girls from Talent Production 765 who dream of one day becoming idols in the competitive Japanese entertainment industry.
