Synopsis

Tensho School is located in the 7th Ward of Thrive Central, where emphasis is put on extracurricular activities and all clubs participate in an annual fall singing contest. Having to delay the start of his school year due to his older sister's hospitalization, transfer student Saku Otonomiya finds himself struggling to adapt to his hectic new life. Balancing his part-time job and caring for his sister, he finds it difficult to make time to join a school club.

In preparation for the upcoming singing contest, the school's singing club wishes to use Sousuke Kagura's song "Cloudy Days," but Kagura is reluctant to grant his permission. The song requires someone with a three-octave range to sing it and he believes that only a VOCALOID can meet the standards. He allows for the club to use his song on the condition that they can find someone who possesses that vocal range to properly sing it.

While racking his brain over the composition of his next song, Kagura stumbles upon Otonomiya singing "Cloudy Days" perfectly. He invites Otonomiya to form a unit with him for the competition. At the same time, the singing club tries to goad him into joining so they can use Kagura's song. As the contest inches closer, Otonomiya must overcome his uncertainty and decide who to team up with.

Mixed Feelings
I considered dropping this because majority of the episodes are painfully boring to the point that I started practicing pixel art while occasionally glancing back to the screen to read subtitles.

The idea is okay and was wrapped up nicely in the end, but the build-up needs a LOT of work. Could've been an 8/10 anime if they wrote it better. The worst part for me, personally, are the character introductions. They're all over the place, and if I didn't finish this I wouldn't have even known why they were introduced.

My initial rating was a 4, but bumped it up to 5 for the ending.

Is it possible to write about Actors without spoiling its core conceit? I don't think so, but I'll do my best.

There's a certain type of anime I love watching for the thrill of never being able to guess what happens next. Usually, these are soap opera-esque melodramas, but I'd put Actors in this category too. And Actors is very different.

Disregard any summaries you may find about this show; they're all wrong. By all appearances, Actors is a slice-of-life about boys who like to sing, but even early on, there are signs that something weird is going on. The town is encompassed by a towering white ...

Vocaloid music, the anime. To think that we'd get a show entirely to promote music company EXIT TUNES based on their 2014 collaborative CD project of famous Vocaloid song covers, it's no wonder the market for Vocaloid music is pretty much still big in Japan, while in the Western world, unless you're a fan of said music, this show's pretty much right up your alley, and if otherwise, not really a whole lot to say about it.

The hamfisted story plot about characters branded as ACTORS (yes it's stylized that way) housed in a private school that's government controlled for reasons I cannot fathom. Give or ...
