Ok, enough of that before I get accuse of trolling, what we have here is the 2nd season of the parent anime "Utapri,' so far only a few things have change but the anime as a whole still focuses on the musical genre, so how did I rate every category of this anime? Here's how:
Story: Fair 6, I need you....S....
I would have given it a 5, but due to some minor yet nice changes this part should be fair enough.
Art: Good 7, I feel you....T....
Let's face it, in this anime the art is on the character's sense of fashion, though it good, it was to elaborate and elegant for a commoner like me to comprehend.
Sound: Very Good 8, I kiss you ...R...
Like I said, this anime is more on the musical genre so therefore the plot is only an added bonus, and I mast say I like all the songs in this anime and so as the seiyuu's who sung it. I also like Nanami's seiyuu as well and Shinning Saotome's over exaggerated tone.
Character: Good 7 , I believe you....I..
Ok, Nanami maybe the driving force of STARISH, but it was the guys who has the most contribution with this anime's feature, though I could have given this part a 5, it was the introduction of Cecil Aijima that has added to the flair of the group. There is also the Sempais; Ranmaru Kurosaki,Ai Mikaze ,Reiji Kotobuki and Camus as well as the "Heavens", Ēichi Ōtori , Nagi Mikado and Kira Sumeragi who seem to be just a bunch of pretty face that were added for additional antagonist of the protagonist, We're Heaven, Yes We're Heavens.
Enjoyment: Very Good 8 , I hold you... S...
Not bad for an otome game to have a 2nd season, though the plot is lackluster, it was the songs that carry this anime's enjoyment.
Overall: Great 9, I want you... H...
Though there are some predictability in this anime, studio A1 did a good job on this anime's songs and episode theme, the end.
Nisenpaa (Hey!) Saikoo na LOVE (Get you!)
Kimi to dake (Jump!) Yes! Happy PULSE (Syun!x2)

Some of you may remember me from my repressed review of Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ Maji Love 1000% . But like a moth burnt by the flame, I never learn my lesson. I'm back, baby.
Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ Maji Love 1000% introduced us to some vapid and brightly coloured characters who quickly grew a place in our hearts like a shockingly virile parasitic worm.
There's, you know, "her" / "thing" / "soup-eyes-chan" / "pink" (or as some call her, "Haruka"), the girl who can't sing - sorry, I'm thinking of the rest of the cast - I mean, read music. And then there's the rest of the gigolos, "hime-cut", "manwhore", "blue guy with irritating vibrato", "heart-defect-kun", "guy who voiced a prison guard in Enzai", "yatta", etc. These, our beloved friends. They have returned to us.
Cecil is bored with being a cat and a grandmother and decides to enroll in Gigolo School with the rest of the cast. Unfortunately he brings with him a gaggle of other cast members. I would guess there was two dozen in all. It's difficult because they all came without their personalities. Don't forget your drinking games - drink when every new character is introduced and we'll end up colour-blind, hey girls?
Along with Cecil's janitor or whatever, there's the addition of a rival gang of senpai singers (presumably they were touring the world during the first season, or at least the countries that aren't anti-LGBT). Seems like these senpais finally noticed them. Well done boys. BTW, did you know the band's official name is STARISH? I thought it was Uta Pri. Not STAR, or STAR-like, just an 'ish'. Like, you know, they're not quite celestial orbs... more like glow in the dark watch faces. This is who we're rooting for.
As well as Senpais, STARISH (who knew, right?) are competing against HEBENSU for the Uta Pri Prize. Gee, with a name like that, I wonder who will win?
OK, sit back, 'cos I know you've edged towards the very boundary of what constitutes a seat. Time for some spelunking in what little depth this series has. Don't worry, we won't need a snorkel.
The music this time round is much the same. Various themes used throughout were forgettable. We skipped the OP every time, it's an anal waxing of a song. The ED is a little better. Of course it's incorporated into the final episode (as always). It's bland, too many parts, and for a long time I thought it spelt out STARFISH, but no, it was STARISH. That is, until Cecil joined the band, who saw that coming? He obviously brought with him the 'F'.*
P.S. Image songs were enough to drive me to violent crime. Blue guy's especially verges on animal abuse.
Depressingly high standard as usual. There's a lot less chibi this time round, obviously someone read my review.
The fight scene in one episode went shounen for a while, it was an amusing aside to take me away from my crushing despair over everything this anime stands for.
Less inside mist than the first series.
Haruka's fashion is a bit more toned down this time round, or maybe my retinas are just scorched.
Made me wish I was deaf.
Saotome is pretty much the saving grace of this series. Saotome is kind of Michael Jackson meets Goku. He talks in Engrish a lot and has a (sadly late) rivalry with someone called Raging who dresses like a pimp. I am shocked and saddened that we cannot date him.
If you enjoyed Ulta no Prince sama 1, then you will also enjoy the second season. Sequels are notorious for not being up to par with it's origional series, but I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised. This anime is lighthearted and just absolutely fun to watch. By no means is it going to be some sort of "drama masterpiece" if that's what you're looking for. The story had potential, but with the series only having 13 episodes it would be rather difficult to get too far into each of the main character's backgrounds. The comedy bits in this series kind of remind me of Ouran Highschool Host Club, and I actually found myself smiling and giggling in a few scenes.
You have your stereotypical shoujo anime male personality types ...the mysterious, the smart, the playboy, the feminine one, ect... however, in my opinion, the writers were able to execute each of their characters smoothly. The female lead can come off a little dry but she surprises you at certain moments throughout the episodes. Her personality is very cute and endearing.
All in all its a great show for a shoujo anime. The artwork is beautiful, the songs are fun, they characters make you laugh, and you find yourself cheering on for at least one of the guys to get the girl. My only complaint is there aren't enough episodes for the writers to have added a little more drama into the anime and spend more time on each character as an individual. Hope others enjoy watching this series as much as I did :)
Story: The anime will continue where it left off, following the steps of Haruka to become a famous composer, along with her friends Otoya, Masato, Natsuki, Tokiya, Ren, Syo and Cecil, whose dream is to become idols.
However, it won’t be easy for the boys as they’ll have to pass a strict exam supervised by the idols Reiji, Ranmaru, Ai and Camus. For those who already watched the first episode then i bet most of you love it just like i do.. Ive been waiting for this season two to come out, im so excited to watch the ep. 1 and when it's been finally aired, those waiting days didnt disappointed me at all! It's worth it..
Art: just like the season one, Uta no Prince-sama 2000%'s art is good too but should i say it became better than the season one? There arent any changes at the characters' faces or whatsover but if you watch the season one first ep. And the season two first ep. You will see the difference on how it became better.
Sound: sound... Yeah sound! XD lets talk about it... The songs are sooo awesome! The opening, i like it very much especially the song which the quartet night sang when they introduced themselves! The voice, the so called wave when they sing are just so awesome! The song poison kiss is like a drug to me XD i became so addictive in that song even if the full version isnt out yet (im anticipating to it XD) their songs evolved to the next round ...
Characters: as you all know, there are new characters like camus,ai,ranmaru and reiji. You can say that they are all bishies just like our fav. Characters ittoki,natsuki,syo, ichinose,masato,cecil and ren. If you like the cool type then go for ranmaru, for the girls who like ittoki then reiji is right for you :D.. And hmm... For ai (which is my fav chara from the group quartet night XD) if you know flan of katekyo hitman reborn, they are kinda look a like and ai looks like the silent type for me and lastly, if you like guys who are kinda cold then camus is the right for you xD....
Enjoyment: if you're a girl who squeals or who gets easily flustered when an anime guy does something sweet for the girl then you will find it here :D the seven main characters (boys) are all soo sweet to our fav. Composer nanami. The atmosphere is kinda funny too, so if you like kaichou wa maid-sama, special a and other animes which has a fluffy and sweet genre that will make you kyaaa then this anime suits you, so if you're that type just like me then watch this, i promise... You wont be disappointed at this anime coz it will give an enjoyment which you like :D..
