Characters & Voice Actors
At surface level this appears to be another reverse-harem otome kind of anime, but it’s actually much better than that. There is a reverse harem element, with all 6 of the guys vying for Haruka's attention, but there isn’t any actual romance (well, a little), which makes it an oddity amongst the shoujo genre. The biggest draw for me when watching was that Haruka, while still the female party of a massive love-hexagon, doesn’t just fall into the shadows and become a Mary-Sue type character; she’s a great female lead, and without her personality the way that it is, there’s no way any of this would’ve happened. She is the reason things turn out the way they do.
Of course, the biggest audience for this anime is young females, as there are many sexy guys, and each of them has their own distinct personality, some clashing violently with others, some of which are not very common in shoujo anime: the obliviously innocent one, the stoic serious one, the childish-yet-yandere one, the tsundere, the ladies man, and the I’m-gonna-close-myself-off-to-you-because-I-don’t-want-your-help-but-I’ll-warm-up-to-you-eventually one. And each one of them is hot as hell. (There’s also plenty of room for yaoi ships, which is a plus but doesn’t draw interest away from the actual plot.)
The other supporting characters were great as well. There was the best friend who, while she could be considered prettier than our heroine, doesn’t out-shine her but instead plays a big role just as being her friend. There’s the headmaster, who… I just don’t know with this guy. And there’s a trap character! Haruka’s teacher is a crossdresser, and boy does he make an attractive lady. Other sub-characters are interesting as well, and I’m glad that they weren’t just there to be, well, there.
Animation-wise, it’s very smooth and pretty. Characters are well fleshed-out and look amazing (Haruka has the prettiest eyes on any anime female ever and you can’t tell me otherwise), and the plot is decent. In fact, the plot is not very good compared to how amazing the rest of it is. There are multiple plot holes, parts that don’t make sense, things that move too slow, and the ending has a giant “where the fuck did this come from?” moment (there was something to do with magic and cats and Greek Muses and God damn he’s hot), but overall it wasn’t horrible, there was good comedic moments, and even the minor characters are very interesting to watch.
Then there’s the music: HOLY HELL is there good music, but in an anime that’s all about music, did you really expect anything less? The opening is good, maybe not the best, but the ending? “Maji Love 1000%” is amazingly good. This is one of the few rare instances where the ending theme out-shines the opening theme, and it makes us sit through the credits every time, just to listen to it all. The music within the show is also great; the songs are straight from the character’s hearts, and they’re sung with such passion that it pulls you in and really makes you listen.
Overall I think this is definitely worth your time to watch as it's very interesting and entertaining.
I was pretty skeptic about this anime since it was originally an otome game. Don't get me wrong - I love otome games and I'm huge fan of them, but from the adaption I have seen, the animes has just made it gone downhill.. . proberly from the lack of development like the games and since they have to squeeze this all in 25 mins, it's impossible to take interest.
However, Uta No Prince Sama wasn't what I expected. Take note that I have NEVER played the game ( i have only read reviews).
Firstly, the main character, Haruka, is your typically shy girl in which everyone walks all over.. and most of her actions can be annoying (cue loads of eye rolling). However, throughout the anime, she does have a hidden strength and she does have a goal she wants to achieve. Sometimes you can't help but appreciate her. I do think, in some ways, Haruka IS a character ANYONE can relate too. The side characters are not too bad either - most of them adding comic or reassurance to the show to make it enjoyable.
Secondly, the guys, of course, unlike the game, each episodes can't express the characters fully, but you do get a grasp on what each of them are like and why they wanted to become idols in the first place. There are some of those typical characters (the cheery idiot, the rich guy, the player, the manly shota, the guy with twin personalities, the guy that's in too deep etc), which I am not bothered about tbh, since it made the show enjoyable. It does sadden me a TINY bit that they missed of some important parts from the game but it didn't matter too much. It made the show less complicated therefore making the story flow a little bit easier for first time viewers.
And lastly, putting aside the characters, I think the storyline is done quite well - most of the episodes did link so the plot didn't love control along the way. The more I watched, the more I was intrigued and found myself singing along to some of the songs. That aside, what I didn't expect was some... odd paranormal things to happen in this anime, which added the WTF factor, but ehh, shit happens *shrugs*.
In conclusion, I can say this anime is enjoyable and not as bad as it seems. It's most ideal if you're looking for nothing too serious. If you're into shoujos with a light hearted comedy and romance, this anime I could reccomend. I'm not sure if my opinions will differ if I have played the game but all in all I still like this anime. Afterall, they have a second season and in making for the 3rd so I guess it's all up to you :)
Exactly the same everything, drawings, genre, harlem and all but better because of they are idiols!
/! For sure if you like one, you WILL like the other /!
- Same romance ambiance, where you have a (naive) girl, who will charmed all boys. (bishonen)
- Musical ambiance, just in Kin no Corda it's just instrumental ambiance, and Uta no prince it's songs, dances, compositions.
- Same bishonen style : cute boy, friendly boy, cold guy, schizophrenic guy.
- the heroine begin with novice skill, but she become better (the best).
the Only DIFFERENCE : in Uta no prince you don't have the fantastic touch, the heroine have real skill, and not a fairy behind her.
It's OBLIGED you like one, you will like the other.
Both falls into music/romance/harem genre anime. In Kiniro no corda the MCs are using musical instrument while in Uta no prince sama the MCs are singer/songwriter/composer. Both has good looking guys with different personality.
One girl surrounded by a group of handsome guys. Both invlove schools for musicians.
In his type of argument, music, more bishonens, harem reverso.
Both are anime about music & are reverse harem.Both are made from visual novels of the same names.If you like one then you will definitely like other one.
Both anime are musical.Also, there is only the one main heroine surrounded by bishies!
Both are harems...
Reverse harems, with a somewhat timid female lead. However, Kiniro focuses more on classical music, while UtaPri is about a school for pop idols. If you like one, you'll definitely like the other.
They are actually very similar, uto no prince sama is basicly a bording school of music, composing and singing, where a girl comes to the school, and there a a few boys with differnt personalities, that all admire her! Then there is kiniro no corda a bording school of again music but this time focusing on intrumetal music. And a girl again is surronded by boys, and helping her! kiniro has a twist of magic though! But if you like one you probily you would like the other! Oh and i LOVE both of the sound tracks, also they have pretty good art!
Same genres, reverse harem and music
Both series are reverse harems based on an otome game so expect to see some hot n' steamin' guys complete with tsunderes and shotas! Both are music related as well.. For Kiniro no Corda, the guys are talented mucisians while Uta no Prince-sama, the guys will be aspiring idols~
True that there are fewer guys present in UtaPri, but hey.. they look even hotter than the guys of La Corda! (*/∇＼*)ｷｬ
♡Girls...get ready to fall in love!♡
Both are animes about music and have harem in it. they are both very similiar.
Both focus on music while Kiniro no Corda is into instruments and Uta no Prince-sama have musicians. Both also have reverse harem.
Both female protagonists must learn some form of music (violin and composing) with little or no former experience. The two go through a period of little self-confidence, and have to overcome that with a lot of practice and learning. Some jealousy is directed towards the two.
They are surrounded by male students who help them and they befriend. Both happen to be prodigious in their respective music schools and have to compete with other students. The competing musicians and idols are admired by the rest of the student body. Also, these two animes encourage that love of music is enough motivation.
It's hard for me to not think about either of these series when watching them tbh.
Both series features music as a prominent theme throughout each episode with the main female protagonist trying to learn the style and art of it.
Both series features a prominent male cast who each specifies in music with different personalities and appearances. They make special bonds with the main female protagonist throughout the series as well.
Both series also contain elements of drama, comedy, music, and romance.
Both animes about music. Also there is one main character surrounded with group of guys.
It got very romantic because every boys that a girl met feel in love and try to get her love them, have very good music to listening, there a lot of handsome/cute guys in the shows!!!! ^.^
Both anime are about music... in both anime it turns around a girl who loves music and is taking music lessons... during the episodes the two girls will meet diferent guys that will fall in love with her but one of them is more important to her <3
•both are a reverse harem
•both girl protagonist are naive and timid and surrounded by beautiful Bishōnen boys
•both anime contain music, where the protagonist and supporting boy cast compete to be the best at there respective fields
•both anime supporting characters develop feelings for the protagonist girl and fall in love with her as the story develops
•both have very simple, plot, which can be overlooked by the music being played in both animes
•both anime girls struggle with criticism among there peer groups
•they are very similar in the reverse harem, bishounen, romantic, musical way, if you liked one you would probably like the other.
The music situation and girl position in harem are similar. Both don't go to detailed into the romance and the music used it pretty good. If you like Primo passo u will 100% prince-sama, if you have watched prince-sama and not Primo passo I think you should still watch it even though it might not be as thrilling as doing it vise-versa.
They're both alike in its genres = music, romance, comedy.
They do have the same story plot that shows how music can change anyone and to strive hard for what we really dream of.
Both have a reverse harem structure, where the sweet, "natural" girl is surrounded by very talented, very good-looking men. Both focus on music, with Primo Passo featuring more classical music, and Uta Pri featuring pop music. Neither one has a very great plot structure - you won't be surprised by anything that happens, and the obstacles encountered by the protagonists are overcome fairly easily.
Both are about music. In La Corda, it's more about classical music. I heard a couple of songs that I used to listen when I was younger. It's kind of nostalgic. And in Prince-Sama, it's modern music that you could dance on =P. For me, it was a world to discover of high ranked talent. It made myself wanted to learn more. ^^'
Both of these are Reverse Harem anime and both take place in a music school, involving music students trying to progress as musicians and many male students are effected by one girls determination and love of music.
If you liked UtaPri, then you're pretty much guaranteed to like La Corda D'Oro as well. Along with being a reverse harem type anime based off of a video game, it also embraces the musical theme, though in La Corda, it's centered around instrumental music instead of vocals. La Corda also contains a wide selection of handsome guys with unique personality types. I think the heroine in La Corda is a slight bit more interesting as well.
Both are reverse harems that circle around music! ♪
School of music. A lot of cute boys who are engaged with the protagonist. Oh,yeah,they are similar. :-)
They both have reverse harem, and they are both about music
Both UtaPri and Kiniro no Corda are essentially anime based around music appreciation. Kiniro no Corda takes this a little more seriously whereas UtaPri likes to focus more on the comedy, but both really like to delve into how music can be life changing. Also, both mc's begin as novice to music, but through the series begin to grow through their love for it. Both are also an odd sort of reverse harem in that all the pretty bishies fall for your girl, but romance almost never plays a part in the show. Also, both are FANTASTIC
-all the guys characters crush on the girl
-music themed anime
Kiniro No Corda and Uta no Prince-sama both have the harem AND the music aspect. In Kiniro no Corda there's more using instruments while Uta no Prince-sama has instruments and vocals. The messages given through the music are absolutely astounding but I have to say that so far in Uta no Prince-sama the messages in Kiniro no Corda are much more powerful and have larger meaning. As for the harem aspect, in both there are also similar characters such as Azuma Yunoki and Jinguji Ren. Maybe even Ittoki Otoya and Kazuki Hihara. Either way, both are very strong in their music aspects and they have a lot of similiarities. The plots are also very good in my opinion and I reccommend that if you liked either, watch the other.
The heroine in both shows are almost emotionless and all the guys are after her. Each guy gets his own episode/arc.
both have a shy female main character
five handsome boys with different characters around her , actually they care about her
same art and same visual effects
Same quiet heroine;
Both based on otome game;
Reverse-harem - all the boys are in love with the one girl-heroine;
Similar animation - the eyes, hair, people...
Both are based off of Otome games and have reverse male harems! The main female character goes down each guys' route in both series (but there is only implied romance in Utapri whereas the female protag dates the guys in Amnesia). Watch them if you love bishi male characters!
•both are based from an Otome game which is pretty convenient
•both have a quiet/facial expressive/shy girl protagonist which are surrounded by lots of hunky/loveable/handsome bishies.
•both are pretty much different in plots, mysteries in one, musical in the other
•both i rated differently, i loved Uta Pri, with its excitable musical lyrics from each character, yet i hated and dropped Amnesia early on, because its just really DULL!!! even though the artwork music were great, it was boring.
•they are just similar in the shy girl surrounded by lots of guys who adore her and have feelings for her, in a roundabout way, you probably might like one if you like the other
Both have mindbogglingly weak protagonists. Enjoy.
Okay~ in all seriousness, the reverse-harem thing.
Also, the protagonists kinda have the same look. I think the red hair and yellowy-green eyes automatically means weak protagonists in anime (Arcana Famiglia). It's a trend!
Both were based on an otome game;
Both have a shy heroine and almost incapable of making decisions;
Both have a reverse harem;
All the main boys fell in love with the heroine and they have distinct personalities;
Similar art: eyes, different clothes, hair...
Both are Shojo, and the protagonist is a girl surrounded by five guys.
Difference with (Utapri) that it is a musical school where the girl writes the songs and the boys sing in a debut,
While in (Amnesia) the girl loses memory and apparently will get help from the five guys to recover his memories.
My first recommendation I hope you enjoy it!
They are both romantic anime
They have hot bishounen boys
They are both are about a group of boys that are in love with the heroine. Both anime allows the viewer to "choose" which character is the best to stay with the heroine. The heroine is a simple character that allows the viewers to feel that that they are the heroine.
Both about a practically emotionless girl and a bunch of guys falling for her.
