Story: 10/10
Straight from the ingenious mind of Michiko Yokote, an often overlooked script writer who had a hand or two in critically acclaimed works such as Naruto, Bleach, Blood + and even Junjou Romantica among other things- It's easy to see why Sekkou Boys is arguably one of the best, if not THE best deconstruction of the Idol genre to date.
Sekkou boys masterfully juggles its nuanced themes and polished content with a succinct and easy to follow narrative, detailing the struggle of aspiring rookie Idol manager Ishimoto Miki, and the trials she encounters as she attempts to rid herself of the prejudice preconception that statues read more

Are you into hard idols? Well this is the show for you.

So far this show have archived something that any other idol shows couldn`t do and that is being entertaining.

Story
Is not really complicated it pretty much tells the hardships that these idols deal in their everyday lives.

Art
Don`t expect to be mindblown with the art is not that great.

Sound
You only get to hear the ending so don't watch this anime expecting these idols to sing a new song in every episode.

Character
Now this is what makes the show for me. Is the interaction between the manager and the 4 idols what makes this comedy.

So this is my first review.
Sekkou boys is a strange show. I haven't seen something similar in my life.
It's refreshing and doesn't make sense, that's why I enjoyed it .

Story: 7
The story follows four marble sculptures of ancient personalities who want to become idols and their manager, a young female.

Art:6
The art isn't great, but isn't bad either. I like the way Sekkou Boys are designed. They look realistic and that makes the show more funny in my opinion. They look exactly like the real ones. Just google them .

Sound:7
Now the sound.. this is an idol anime, but they don't sing at all read more

Note: This review may contain spoilers!

Story 7/10: Funny and interesting to watch. The friends they have met along the way on their path to stardom has a great plot to it. That is closest thing that I have seen that is part of the plot development.

Characters 7/10: Seeing the transition of Miki from being an art student to the manager has a big part on her character development. The writers have used Greek/Roman historical & mythological figures to implement the anime. St. Giorgio is the leader, cool and collected. Mars (God of War) - Can be seen as the tough guy & womanizer. There's also read more
