Private Tenshou Gakuen is the seventh of ten school districts circled within a 130-meter tall wall with restricted entry and egress aside from officials. The academy is fully autonomous by the government but to strive for independence, the school allows students to engage in club activities after school, which comes with a strangely unique system. Each club is ranked according to its overall accumulated points gathered from various club activities and school events. Points can also be received by winning at the school's periodic Tenshou Gakuen Singing Contest, where many students compete. The members in the clubs work hard to win the contest for their goal.

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 read more

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 read more

It's really tough to talk about this show without a bunch of spoilers so I have to keep this short. This show is something that you need to be into music for in order to really connect with. The character development was just not there for most of the cast outside of music.

At first, the show was an absolute mess but when it started getting its shit together it was really good. By an absolute mess I mean the show was just not following any real storyline. In the end, it picked one up but it really was nonexistent for half the show.

I highly read more
