Eh, I thought the finale felt kinda underwhelming. On most parts, I thought episode 12 fit more for a finale. This episode was somewhat fun to watch I guess with the girls taking more of a breather.

Holy crap, Ichigo has a big strawberry LOL

And anyways, it was a cute show overall, nothing too special about it. Somehow, I liked the first half better than the second half.

Feeling after holding big event, as well as main girl's limit reaching. An ep. to judge if she can still stay as seiyuu (it's also a part of seiyuu life). She can still stay one more year (extended trial).

Masumin herself as guest seiyuu!! Then all the guest seiyuus appeared throughout the series featured in ED.

I wonder what new work they got as unit at the end. It's nice to see that kid seiyuu girl is now in high school uniform.
I Two Syaorans from Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE and TRC!!!

I thought they will break the 4th wall and will announce 2nd season in final scene... :(

I want more!
I really liked this series!
Appearance real seiyuu was pretty cool!
I wish there was anime Nakamura-san, Mizuki-san and other seiyuu which I like :D
Oh, well... you can't have everything! xD
But this was pretty cool see HiroC, Rie-chan and Shiraishi-san :)

Really hope there will be more of "Sore ga Seiyuu!" :D

This series was nice, someway they tried to show the world of seiyuu :).
The art was ok though.
And I'm still thinking that ep12 was the finale and this episode the aftermath, time passed really fast (more than month), everyone tried their best I guess.
I'm learning English so maybe I make mistakes :)

This show has been pretty decent in showcasing various aspects of a Seiyuu life which was pretty interesting to follow, but not so fond of how Futaba didn't improve much compared to Ichigo and Rin. Even after all that effort and determination, she remained as the weakest link of the Earphones unit. Some might say it's just one the realistic notions of this show, but it doesn't really sit well with me.

Well, a S2 with more character developments won't be bad. We do need more Seiyuu-centric anime with a variety of themes though. Off the top of my head, I can think of some titles such as Full-Fledged Vocalist: Seiyuuhood, Voice;Gate, Ginkoe, Seiyuu X Seiyuu, Ginga Seiyuu Densetsu, Koemonogatari, Psy.Koe-Pass, and so on.

Yeah, Futaba's lack of development compared to the others is kinda meh, I'm mostly not a fan of how she overeacts if anything.
Looks like I forgot to add something for my review of this show but ah well.

Anyways, it was a nice show overall, I'll miss this.. and Ichigo :P

I thought that thing at the end would be the confirmation for a S2.

I hope Shirobako S2 comes out already.

Same lol Even the damn Mr. Producer got my hopes up.

Was digging Rin's new hairstyle too.

Pretty entertaining overall. 7.5 or so for me, so I'll prolly just round up.

Is there going to be a second season or something? Anyways the ending wasn't that strong in my opinion, but other than that it was an ok anime.

My first seiyuu anime oddly enough o.o
It was a nice anime though ^^
Good for info too.

Before this I would mostly be like
"Oh the seiyuu for such and such is this person? Neat."

But now it's more
"Wow they voice this character? Hmm they sure worked hard to make them sound so great. Keep up the good work~!"

Which is good? I guess, lol

It was a nice show. Kind of a realstic end for Futaba, too. Sucks that she's always so hard herself. Hopefully, she'll be able to get better work for the upcoming year, so then they'll take her on. Not like we'll ever know, though, since we don't even know if this will get a 2nd season.

These girls are still lucky compare to other seiyuu, it's really difficult to survive in this job even for a skilled one. Have to please the f*cking producer with the right voice for the right role on the right ears ; if they don't like it, there are hundreds of other seiyuu in the area waiting.
And it's totally unfair when someone like Kirito's seiyuu gets the leading roles from most animes of the whole season. There're other stronger male voice seiyuu fits the role more than him but if it was a direct request by the mangaka or producer, there wasn't even an audience.

I really enjoyed the actors playing themselves in the show. Gave some interesting insight into the career that is voice acting. I just didn't click with the characters which is a big deal for me.

It has it merits but wasn't a favorite of mine from this season.

Ichigo was the most entertaining character of the three main characters. It was a good watch. Assessments make me nervous as well.

Definitely need a second season. That ending is a good sign. Kind of disappointing to see Ichinose stagnating overall while the other two are on the up and up. Also disappointed we never got a Hana Kana appearance.

Good show. One of the better conclusions in a season full of split cours and non-endings (Gangsta, I'm looking at you.). I'm not betting on a second season though. If it happens though, please have more seiyuu and anisong cameos. Having no Kana Hanazawa, Kaji Yuuki or Tomokazu Sugita in a seiyuu anime, whether you like them or not, is an injustice that should be rectified.
I wish Cowboy Bebop never existed.

Ichigo for best seiyuu! i have to say i had very low exceptions going in i just wanted more shirobako and while this wasn't on that level it was the next best thing.

really hope that was a tease for a another season i want one for this and the much needed shirobako! 7.5/10

Nice Ending and Nice anime 8/10 :D

Futaba assessment meet was tough, glad that decision she can stay again. :)

Ichigo providing voice of "Da berry" scary and ugly mascot i think xD

Rin pass the entrance exam :D

i wonder what the Earphone get in the end xD

So Futaba gets another year to prove herself... not exactly the best outcome, but at least she gets to keep the dream alive.. and its a more gradual outcome. She certainly has grown in terms of ability and confidence over the course of the series, which is good.
Happy to see Ichigo get more work too!
Overall I give this a 8. Always been fascinated by VA, and it feels as though im reading a non-fiction book, which is refreshing in some way when it comes to anime. Learnt alot from the seiyuu's world and its nice seeing ups and downs, and being part of their journey through success and setbacks.

Would've loved to see more Konno, she's my fave char.

I thought episode 12 was the final episode.
That assessment was a little bit harsh tho, but nice word to say from Futaba. i like it.
Overall, it was a good story and i enjoy it, but i prefer episode 12 is the final episode. 8/10.

That last minute ending -_-. At least tell me what is he trying to do again

And so the Summer 2015 anime season ends(for me) with Futaba's future still uncertain, but with her receiving more time to grow. I was pretty high on this show early in its run. I even went so far as to say it could be the sleeper hit of the season. While still good, my enthusiasm for it declined as it went on. Rin's role just really took away from it for me. Couldn't bring myself to worry or care about her at all. A third member closer to Ichigo and Futaba in age and circumstance would have been vastly preferable. 7/10

So in the end Futaba's future is still uncertain. Too bad.

It was good series. 8/10 from me

I kinda wanted to see Futaba got fired because that'd be more realistic =p I mean if we consider seiyuus who got a lot of works got fired.......

It's no Shirobako but I guess it's fun while it lasted. I'd have rated it higher if they had gone to the eroge or hentai voice acting route a little XD

It does have a good soundtrack and it's always fun to see the pro seiyuus cameo and to listen to the ED every week (sad we don't have the usual one this episode).

Hopefully that bit at the end wasn't just a stupid tease and actually becomes a 2nd season/special/movie (or at least an OVA damn it!)

Episode 12 for the finale/climax, and episode 13 is for the conclusion. Well played, really.
Anyway, I enjoyed through this series a lot. One of the anime I'm looking forward to watch every week. No more episode next week kinda saddens me..

(8/10) Underrated series, but who cares! I've always wanted anime like this!
Though this anime is better off showing more seiyuus in action, like voice acting and stuff, or maybe a few rivalry can make it more interesting, instead of focusing on idol stuff in the second half.

So..... Season 2 pwease! Maybe a time gap where they become more skilled and popular a bit, like Idolm@ster 2nd cour? Make it happen, Gonzo!

My thoughts about this anime overall:

Well this anime was sure made a great demonstration how Seiyuu's (Voice Actors and Actresses) lives works.
And I really enjoyed watching this anime. If there would be a sequel I will really gonna watch it.
Anyway I'll rate this anime a 7 (or 8?) out of 10 score overall.
Haters always gonna hate.

Futaba being able to bring herself back together in that situation was actually great. I really think her lack of development in terms of her career was more than made up by her own personal development, to finally have something she can say that she wants to continue is more than half the battle, to say at least.

I'll be glad to see a second season, a now determined (still sometimes unsure) Futaba would not have convinced the staff if what she said was half-hearted.

When Atsumari smiled during the assessment, some sort of wave hit me.

This was enjoyable to say at least, 8/10, I think I would be even more impressed if this continues in the way it is going.

It was an okay show in the end, I really enjoyed the seiyuu aspect of it and I wanted to see more of that in the anime with Futaba growing as a seiyuu with Ichigo and Rin. The idol route they took kind of ruined it for me, I wish they didn't take that and just stuck with showing me their lives as seiyuus only.

So in the end Futaba is being held on a short leash and she still has to do her best.
Well at least she has another chance to prove herself.

This show really needs a second season for it to become great. More cameos would be nice.
The unflinching depiction of reality as a seiyuu is really something. Depressing but realistic. Overall a very worthwhile watch and a show I can respect years down the line. Sign off with a solid 7/10.

Truly, one of the best this season. It is underrated, but that's what you get when you take a realistic attempt at depicting the world of seiyuu. The end result was awesome. I am gonna miss these girls esp. Ichigo... Want a 2nd season really bad. 9/10
