Characters & Voice Actors
What you will find in this anime is a group of cute guys who are pros at music.
~Story: There is nothing particularly special about the plot of UtaPri. It follows the journey of a girl who got accepted to a very extravagant music school. There she met a group of cute guys who gradually got to love her music. This anime is a typical reverse harem. Do not expect to find any major plot twists because UtaPri is quite light-hearted and often uses comedy.
~Art: The first time I looked at the main girl character, I was like "Why does she have such creepy eyes?!" I have to say the other characters' eyes are less creepy and look more normal. The art of UtaPri really has an elegant tone to it(please excuse the times when they dance like robots). What I really like about the visuals in UtaPri is the colors. There is always a happy feeling in this anime because of the use of a range of colors.
~Sound: UtaPri is an anime about music. I am sure anyone would be disappointed if this aspect of the anime was not done well. i think that the background soundtrack is quite suitable. The singing however has been the part that I really enjoyed. When people keep asking the question "Can music change the world?", I really have to give a yes as an answer. I felt that the songs in UtaPri are all quite emotional.
~Character: Every character has been briefly explored in the anime. I haven't played the game UtaPri but after reading Wikipedia, I would assume that it is a lot more detailed and the characters are more thoroughly explained. While all sharing the love for music, the characters each have their own distinct personality. Each of the characters is assigned with a certain color. Sometimes, I find that the colors really expresses their personality.
~Enjoyment: I wouldn't say that I really like this anime. The only enjoyment I got from watching UtaPri came from the voices. I have to admit that I only watched this anime because Mamoru Miyano starred in it. For me, the singing has made the best moments for me in UtaPri.
If you like a short anime based around music or enjoys watching a reverse harem with cute guys, UtaPri is the anime for you. read more
O_O Now I've seen it all *shoots self*
Story [7/10]: The concept of having a music academy to train students to become future idols. That itself sounds really interesting. In the 2nd episode there was good development in the story through assignment given to the students where one has to compose other to write lyrics and record it. Alas such challenges were never shown after ep 2. The heroine has been given extra special attention by all the guys right from ep 1 without any reason(maybe typical of a reverse harem). A big letdown. I mean why cant the feelings develop slowly as the days of all characters together progress. Pace of the story is really slow in terms of development. Episodes are wasted on introducing all the guys (6 + one magical creature/guy perhaps- yeah talking about Cecile) no excitment to watch except seing the bishonens in different angles. The way the story is revealed looks very plastic- unrealistic and made up for visual feast to the girls exclusively. The only other good point storywise is the continuity it has kept from one episode to the next. Inspite of all this I dont know why but I am still continuing to watch the show. So if you are okay with a not too interesting plot development then go on ahead to watch.
Art [10/10]: No doubt in this. All the guys are awesome. Haruka's eyes though is a heavy disappointment. I actually avoid looking too much in her eyes (cause then maybe I'll get hypnotised :P). Background scenery is good. The campus seems really beautiful.
Sound [10/10]: Need I say anything about this. AWESOME SONGS!!!! Just listen to the tunes and you'll be fluttering like a leaf in the wind. Voice actors all have done a good job for their characters as well. AWESOME SONGS
Characters [8/10]: All guys have a distinct personality. Though I would have preferred genuinely smiling characters as a change. i mean come on, you cant have an expression like this =.= all the time and expect the audience's mindset to change forcefully towards the character by suddenly seeing him singing and dancing. Smile is a must while performing (well with expections of course for songs which are supposed to be grim). And it is the only thing that also adds vibrance to the idol image of the character. Still most of the guys have this feature so its all good. and Haruka completely fails to give any impact on screen for me. Her personality is absolutely weak. Even Ringo the supporting character has her screen presence felt.
Overall [8/10]: I give this ratings because of the following points:
1) Pop music theme. This is the first series which I actually came across with a full fledged pop music theme. Though I agree skip beat also had some of it.
No interesting scenes showing the actual process of training students to be future idols. Though i have to admit songs are groovy in each episode. Wait songs are AWESOME. Amazing grace !!!!!
All in all its the kind of show to get caught up watching in all the hype. read more
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.
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!!!! ^.^
All about Music, the female protagonist is surrounded by the males
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.
Exactly the same except the setting is more exciting with Uta no Prince Sama because of the idol settings.
Typical harem shoujo where each episode shows a story of heroine and of the guys
Both series are reverse harem: many cool boys who casually and inevitably fall in love for the same girl.
As well both anime have been realized after their game, still both share the same school life genre and have a great art.
Both are recommended! ♥
Both are otome games, both have cute guys who surrounds one girl, they're pretty much the same except in plots :)
The artstyle and the feeling (athmosphere) are pretty similar
Both were a reverse harem.
Both have school and romance genres.
Both characters wore ridiculously gay uniforms.
Both characters look gay.
SS has more bishonens than UPML.
The chiquita (female lead) in SS is more confident and open minded than the chiquita from UPML.
The school uniform in SS looks more gay than the school uniforms in UPML.
Both have reverse harem as theme and in both most of the boys have something they're troubled by, like their past for example and the heroine is always there to cheer them up.
UtaPri was an interesting anime. If you like reverse harem i suggest you watch both. Starry Sky was cute and since all of the guys in both had a different personality to choose from, i'm sure you'll find a character you like
