It seems that the Girls of 765 Productions are having a hard time getting a job, because nobody have passed a single audition. And then Producer-san discovered the production’s senzai, and it was a little too witty. Check out that monkey suit. So Producer-san has asked for a re-shoot of senzai, even if the chairman likes the current materials.
The episode is mainly focused on the four young characters, Yayoi, Iori, and twins Ami & Mami, and how can they stand-out and show their individuality on as an idol. The four have formulated plans to stand-out, from wearing oddball costumes to dressing up like an adult, with matching make-up that make you more like a clown or a ghost.
But after looking at other, they finally realised that its not the costumes, clothes that makes an individual, and they can stand-out by just being themselves.
Yes, I know what you’re thinking… Such a cliché, right? And I guess that has been the impression of more than 4,000 Japanese internet users about the anime, and I partly agree, because somewhere all I can think is “been there, done that.”
But I look at a different perspective, with all the ecchi animes, 3D mechas, and horror stories for the past seasons, I like to go back to basics… and I still don’t expect a harem anytime soon. Goodness, most of them are minors! But it anime kinda reminds me now more of The GLEE Project, instead of American Idol.
And then, he shows up… Touma Amagase, one of the three members of the Boyband group Jupiter. Isn’t it a little bit too early to bring this guy up, since “the group” has just started? And I already smell some fanboys doing the ragefuu, and I expect that these guys will be back in the anime soon.
Overall, it may be boring right now, but I believe that there’s more to come.
EPISODE RATING: 3.5 out of 5
