Synopsis

As luck would have it, on her first day at Holbein Entertainment Co., Miki Ishimoto is tasked with managing a brand new idol group! A recent college graduate, Ishimoto is eager to begin her career in the industry. However, her department's responsibility is...statues?!

The statues in question are the Sekkou Boys, or "The Rockies," a boy band comprised of four Greco-Roman sculptures: St. George, Mars, Hermes, and Medici. These four busts are new to the entertainment scene, and it is up to Miki to ensure the Rockies' prosperity in the idol world. But will they be a stone-cold success? Or will Miki's management prove to be a rocky start to stardom?

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

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 (except for ending). I was disappointed.

You DID read the premise correctly and...no your not high.

On the outset this is one of the more fun weird anime shorts LA has seen and considering you read the premise you kinda get LA's statement on this already. Characters are typical idols and Miki is the average hard-working manager who had an ironic fate with her first job due to her being in arts college all she did was make sculptures, now she's managing them!.

The stone bust idols "The Rockies" are also your typical idol tropes just mix in Greco-Roman backstories into their characters behaviours and you got the "Rockies". As much as the 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
