Tsukino Talent Productions is home to two up-and-coming idol units named Six Gravity and Procellarum. The units all live together in the same dormitory and try to juggle their budding careers and daily lives. At their joint handshake event, unit leaders Hajime Mutsuki and Shun Shimotsuki announce the "Full Moon Festival"—a collaboration concert in a few months. Excited about the upcoming event, these 12 male idols must learn to collaborate with each other in order to pull it off successfully.

I personally loved Tsukiani, but I know that not many people would really like this sort of anime.

There's no overarching plot in this anime. It mainly follows the characters' lives and the small challenges they face as an idol. There's not much of them singing or dancing, but it revolves around how the other work that idols go through. So if you're looking for a lot of singing and dancing, this isn't the one for you.

The music is really good. The opening switches back and forth between the sibling/rival units, and the ending features a different characters' solo song each episode. Some people say that ...

There's only one rule that all Idol/music-genre anime shall follow: to radiate blissful joy to the audience. Unfortunately within popular landscape, it seems like such joy is only acknowledged in relations to a certain gender bias. However, once such bias is removed from one's headspace, one may definitely discover something great-- Tsukiuta, for instance.

Personally speaking, sometimes it makes me feel salty every time I see reviewers immediately lambast Idol/music-genre anime, particularly the ones with all-male characters (whilst they have no issue singing praise for the likes of BanG Dream! and Love Live!). Such bias immediately shadows the fact of which these kinds of anime actually ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (7/13 eps)
Tsukiuta. is a chill anime about male idols doing fun things together and just enjoying life in general. If you're one who's into plot and character development, this anime isn't for you. It's just an anime for if you have nothing to watch and want to watch other people have fun.

The only bad thing is the CGI dancing, but the music isn't bad or anything. The anime isn't very dancing and singing oriented like Uta no Prince Sama, another idol anime. In fact, they don't sing or dance much at all, much less mention being idols. It's basically just a slice of life anime with ...
