Minato visits a recitation at an anime event with his friend. He is captivated by the voice actors' performances and decides to enroll in Suidoubashi Animation Academy. There, he meets Chikako, who used to live in the room he is moving into and who left a message in a USB drive. Minato, who aims to be a voice actor but is unable to put himself into the role, and Chikako, who lives with a past trauma, encourage one another and try to improve themselves. With the help of seniors such as Ryouta and Kei watching over them, they try to mature. As they stumble and worry, what lies ahead for them both?
If there is anything to go by with this short-form series, I would say that it's bland with some good artwork and of course the good music that's known with the HoneyWorks brand.
The story in a nutshell is the life and work of flourishing voice actors. Pretty interesting concept for a short, but I'd wondered for an original series, it would have been nice to see this fleshed as a normal 12-episode series, given that the characters, aside from main MCs Minato and Chikako's journey of trials and tribulations, along with their own personal fears that make the whole voice acting job feel pressured and
looked upon by society standards. Both MCs interactions in getting over their fears, such as taking that 1st step into voice acting are decent. Nothing groundbreaking but passable.
Signal.MD's artwork and animation still shines, albeit decently. This is not their "MMO Junkie" level of expertise, so take everything you see with a grain of salt. And of course, the music. What's music like when you add in the well-known HoneyWorks label? Good and well-rounded music, that's their forte, though I wish that they would stick to female groups instead of male groups (as evidently pointed out by the ED being better than the OP IMO). Sexism? Oh hell no.
In the end, this is just meh and pretty much a bare-bones (if you ask me). Nothing exciting fills you up than having to know how voice acting is done in Japan, I guess. Not a recommendation, unless it's for the HoneyWorks music, and purely alone.
