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.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Actors: Songs Connection is a collaboration between VOCALOID and voice actors with EXIT TUNES, producing many of the songs featured in the show. The series was released on Blu-ray by Funimation on November 3, 2020.

Huh, I didn't expect to review this any time soon. So...Actors: Songs Connection is an anime that came out in October 2019, as part of a large multimedia project based on a series of CDs where popular male voice actors do covers of Vocaloid songs. Yeah, unfortunately, information on this CD collaboration thing is very scarce because that sort of thing isn't well known in places outside of Japan. The only reason I even know about this anime is because a podcast I follow did an episode on it reviewing the show's English dub. Having watched the entirety of said episode, I decided to give ...

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.

Sooo it has this cool lineup of characters that you can't help but root for... I spent half of the anime just trying to choose to who i had to fangirl more... Now, when it comes to the whole anime, it's a bit hit or miss. Theres no actual plot... Or thats what i feel like... The series uses musical performances not only as a form of entertainment but also as a means of character development, which is just... Mehxd specially for people who aren't into that type of genre. If you're a fan of anime that incorporates music as a central element and explores ...
