Home to countless street acts and performances, Veludo Way attracts those interested in watching professional actors. After receiving a mysterious letter, Izumi Tachibana arrives at the venue where her father directed a once-popular theater group, Mankai Company, but learns that the building is about to be repurposed due to excessive debt. At the last minute, she convinces the debt collector to give the ensemble one more chance. He is willing to accept but on three conditions: their debut show must be successfully produced by the following month, the four all-male sub-troupes must be reinstated, and the debt must be paid off within a year. To top it off, Izumi herself must become the director.

With no time to lose, Izumi quickly gathers five people for the Spring Troupe: Sakuya Sakuma, an enthusiastic high school student; Masumi Usui, a boy infatuated with Izumi; Tsuzuru Minagi, an aspiring playwright; Itaru Chigasaki, a mature office worker; and Citron, a friendly foreigner. Though they have little or no experience in acting, it's up to Izumi to train and prepare them for a performance that will restore Mankai Company to its former glory.

Let me start by saying that I'm a fan of the original game and that this anime is one of the best game adaptions I’ve seen so far.

A3! is a story about friendship, overcoming hardships and chasing your dreams. Please keep in mind that if you're looking for an idol anime, A3 is not the one for you since this is about a theater group – no singing and dancing involved (unless you count the opening). The first season focuses on the characters of the Spring & Summer troupes and offers some lighthearted slice of life moments. While each of them got their ...

Mixed Feelings
Another anime of a game adaptation, but not the usual kind of "idols" that we'd expect. Instead, it's all about theater troupe acting. A simple act of gesture can go a long way...or so it's said.

Based on the game A3!, the player (director) must navigate through the simple plot about saving a theatre company (that's the Mankai Company) from the demolition of its "good ol' days", which specializes in 4 troupes that's named after the 4 seasons. Sounds simple enough? The anime also has that plot, but for the sake of time, the 1st cour here samples the Spring and Summer Troupes, with every troupe ...

I don't really understand the appeal of this show. Throughout my watching of it, the whole thing just felt bland and uninspired in every aspect of it.

Nothing about the animation or artstyle ever grabbed my attention. Even though all of the characters have okay designs that should have felt unique, they just felt soulless because of the specific style.

I could've excused all of that as long as the story made up for it but it really didn't. The show is split up into 4 parts [Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter] that all feel the exact same.

Every part tries to do character drama, but ...
