This show is a classic case of the "golden rule" of "Show, don't Tell" gone horribly wrong, and trying to salvage any further predicament will only harm your brain cells, much less your eyes. I know I did.

But first, a crash course on "Show, don't Tell":
‘Show, don’t tell’ is a classic advice for writers – something like a ‘golden rule’, delivered with complete surety and an authoritative tone by the last generation of authors to the next. This ‘set in stone’ approach drives many authors to try and pick it apart, but it’s survived so long for a reason: it is good advice, most of read more

Gekidol is ambitious. It wants to be different. It tries to stand out from other idol series by mixing in several dark and disparate themes. But in the end, it falls completely flat due to its outstandingly terrible execution.

The first episode of Gekidol is by far its best episode. After watching a concert of a renowned idol, a girl named Seria gets encouraged by it and resolves to become an idol as well. Despite her friend's advice, she joins a small yet welcoming theatre full of nice and friendly girls, and her journey towards becoming an idol begins. Sounds very generic, right? But it's far read more

The world is facing the abyss, the stage girls are the last hope. Only they can safe the world and conjure up a smile for the citizens - welcome to the world of “Gekidol”!
First of all, it has to be mentioned that “Gekidol” is THE unexpected surprise of the idol/stage anime scene. All those anime fans who (like myself as well) expected a classic idol story with a bit slice of life and maybe some Sci-Fi action after the first glance, are completely wrong. This anime "GEKIDOL" offers us a story which is much deeper than we can imagine and cannot be summarized in a read more

Talk about a gem in the rough. When I went into this I certainly wasn't expecting the show to take me on such a wild ride, but here I am. I suppose theater type shows do inevitably muddle the line between the stage and reality, as with Revue Starlight, so I can't say I wasn't unprepared for the twists and the revelations that came, but still.

You know, as an adver-anime for the real life Alice In Theater Troupe, I must say I am impressed they'd bother doing a strange sort of plot that goes above and beyond the generic idol-style trappings of other shows. read more
