The anime's story follows Tsubasa, a new hire in the A&R department of the major recording company Gandala Music. Tsubasa is immediately assigned to oversee the idol unit "B-PROJECT," which is made up of three idol groups: Kitakore, THRIVE, and MooNs. This is Tsubasa's first job, and she gets involved in various incidents and accidents as she deals with this group of young men who each have their own differing personalities.

As a big fan of idol anime that had no background knowledge of B-Project, I'd say this did pretty well, but still had a long way to go.

Story: 7/10

Besides the fact that the ending was a little rushed and confusing, it is very rare that an idol anime would tackle serious conflicts in their stories. The build up to that ending though I believe was steady enough for it to make some sense. Idol anime generally tend to be character based, as in, each episode is focussed on a different character and their backgrounds. B-Pro did an OK job at this, but they focussed too ...

Mixed Feelings
The thing that held B Project back for me was its weak cast management. Telling the stories of ten characters (3 idol units) requires solid writing to pull it off. However, the show failed to do that. Episodes shift from one unit to another so fast that I barely got to know them.

Their growth was either hard to tell or nonexistent as the storytelling makes relating to them challenging. Furthermore, B Project seemed more interested in adding ...

This show makes me depressed.

I recently got into b-project when I stumbled upon the app during my daily idol game discovery and almost instantly fell in love with the characters, the beautiful art and the music. I decided to watch the anime because I wasn't too interested in anything that was currently airing and I wanted to learn about the b-project lore. What I expected was a middle of the road idol anime with no particular plot and decent animation. What I got was a bad idol anime with crappy, almost unwatchable, animation and a weird plot that makes no sense in the end. ...
