Uta No Prince Sama Episode #06 Anime Review

While Haruka continues to grow slowly as a character, she does still manage to come across as something of a space cadet in many ways. She’s easily lost, confused and has a simple nature about her that may be cute and charming in small doses, but proves to be annoying when taken in more than that. What’s amusing is that in the relatively short time that everyone knows each other now, they’re all worried about Haruka being off on her own. She just inspires that little confidence in others about herself that you kind of just have to shake your head. When everyone worries about you going out even for a little while, it says a lot about how bad things can go. Read More... //www.fandompost.com/2011/08/07/uta-no-prince-sama-episode-06-anime-review/

Uta No Prince Sama Episode #05 Anime Review

As time goes on, Haruka settles into the academy life pretty well and is definitely picking up speed on things. As we see early on here, she’s getting better at her melodies and is gaining a greater sense of music that’s helping her more and more. She’s getting along with everyone, fitting in better and finding her place both academically and as a person. Not surprising for her personality though, she’s the type that helps out others and it can be infectious or at least eases tensions. But as we’ve seen, tensions have eased up in general amongst the students as they focus on their work. What can spur them a bit? How about news that Hyuga is kicking off a new movie and there’s an open audition aspect. Read More... //www.fandompost.com/2011/07/30/uta-no-prince-sama-episode-05-anime-review/

Uta No Prince Sama Episode #04 Anime Review

As the series progresses, the fun with the performances and music can ramp up a bit and when you have a cast that’s supposed to vamp it up a bit because it’s required, it can be comically fun. Such is the truth of the opening minute or two of this episode which has a couple of the guys doing their dance routine to some seriously upbeat music, voguing and posting left and right, making the female students swoon in delight. It’s definitely a cute moment, especially when it goes further when one of them gives Haruka a rose. Ren is a true tease in every sense of the word, but he has the looks and charisma to pull it off easily. Read More... //www.fandompost.com/2011/07/25/uta-no-prince-sama-episode-04-anime-review/

Uta No Prince Sama Episode #03 Review

As the series moves forward a little more, we get a better look at some of the inter-student competitions that are going on as some like Hyuga have it out for others due to long standing rivalries. The focus is mostly kept on Haruka though, who is still smarting over the events of the previous episode where she was unable to properly read the music as she was taught differently by her grandmother. While she has the drive and motivation behind the shy and unsure exterior, this is a big world that she’s entered and the meek approach is her natural state which makes it hard for her to really find her place in things just yet. It’s made worse by the others that taunt her and claim that it was favoritism that allowed her to get in there. Read More... //www.fandompost.com/2011/07/16/uta-no-prince-sama-episode-03-review/

Uta no Prince-sama 1000% Complete Collection Blu-ray Anime Review

When Haruka gets the chance to take the entrance exam for Saotome Academy for the Performing Arts, it seems as though she’s one step closer to her dream of composing songs for her favorite singer, Hayato. However, this is no gleeful high school musical experience, and Haruka’s hiding a dreadful secret that may silence her musical ambitions forever. Even if she does get into Saotome, the competition will be more brutal than going on Japan’s Top Idol! That’s because, as a writer, Haruka could be paired with any one of six radically different male singers. Will it be upbeat Otoya, serious Masato, flirtatious Ren, split-personality Natsuki, optimistic Syo, or the unapproachable Tokiya, who’s rumored to be Hayato’s brother?

Uta No Prince-Sama Episode #02 Review

As the series starts to move forward, we do get to deal with something amusing right out of the gate as Haruka comes across her dream man, Hayato, late at night on the school campus grounds. Of course, he’s dismissive of Hayato whens he brings it up and that certainly confuses her, giving her the impression that he has two separate personalities of sorts, playing Hayato only when on stage perhaps. When the headmaster magically leaps in, he provides the real context that the man here, Tokiya, is actually Hayato’s younger identical twin brother and the two obviously have real issues between them that run pretty deep. Tokiya definitely comes across as the tortured type while Haruka continues to be Hayato’s biggest defender. Read More... //www.fandompost.com/2011/07/10/uta-no-prince-sama-episode-02-review/

Uta No Prince-Sama Episode #01 Review

Based on the game and manga of the same name, Uta no Prince-sama serves as our first introduction to the Nico Nico service. While we’re certainly not a fan of how the main service acts, the comments and the really childish nature of a lot of it, the actual simulcast service side of it is pretty decent since you can turn off comments and not enable scrolling on the side with comments. I don’t watch anime at conventions with fans because most are silly, rude and obnoxious in group settings. I can’t imagine that being different on a worldwide scale when put into this context, so we’ll be ignoring that. With the show itself, the player is decent though I miss the option to turn off subtitles themselves, and it has a good clean interface that works well and lead to no problems during playback.
