THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
It reminds me of Uta Prince tbh.

A lot of dudes introduced but I find the main girl Tsubasa to be more of an airhead. Ganderra Music has a lot of talent I guess but I hope the show makes good characterization out of these idols. In the meantime, I do think there's a lot of talent with the voice casting as the music sounds better than I had anticipated.

this was pretty fun actually, so far the characters seem pretty good (especially the main girl), the music was good and it had some nice humor. gave me an utapri vibe.

Its fun but rather unrealistic... like why does only the heroine notice that he isn't getting that part right?
This is gonna be another one of those anime, bishies+seiyuu and good music but everything else below average.
Will continue watching though.

While the main girl was like-able, I felt like she was really clueless a lot of the time, and not even just because she was new but simple things like "run it from the top" - you should be able to figure those out lol. Although I like that in a way, since it means they'll probably use that as a way to show how she grows throughout the anime or something. Pretty upbeat vibe anime, and they managed to make some moments intense, somehow, so thats good.

Well I was gonna say the same thing when I saw it but when I heard the japanese of that phrase it IS worded rather weirdly.
But yeah, I agree they're showing her so clueless to make her character development much more evident

Decent start. Tsubasa is new to the business, but her perception seems to be a key factor for the members, even conclusively improving a subunit's own recording. The character designs and music are also nice. Not too focused on any actual characters just yet, but I'll look forward to it.

Yep. Yep. Yep. Yeeeeep. This is EXACTLY what I wanted this to be. So many hot guys, ahh Tsubasa-chan, I totally get you. I'd feel the same way surrounded by all these hotties.

She's not useless, she's actually a decent heroine. Dat kiss on the cheek though. Kyaaa!

Not bad, not bad at all

I already like Tsubasa, despite her somewhat unrealistic cluelessness she still felt like a decent heroine. Like somebody else here said, I hope they're going to use it as a way to show how her characters develops throughout the series

I couldn't care less about the songs, I just want to watch bishies doing bishie things #Tomohisabestboii

I thought they could atleast come up with something better, but they didn't...
I hope the rest of the series will be entertaining atleast.

This is super otome game-ish lol. The sparkles in this was a bit much... we get it, idols shine. Girl also needs to brush up on slang, the terms they used were rather common. Hopefully she has more personality than what we've seen. Idk what I expected but this is a bit of a let down; nothing really interesting happened. Still the first episode though so let's see. If this devolves into the typical 10 guys fighting for 1 girl's affection I would be really disappointed.

It wasn't that bad actually. Okay, sure, a lot of it was SUPER cheesy, but I like how unlike Uta Pri, we're able to see more of an in depth look at idols, and how they do what they do. Tsubasa actually seems to be a decent protagonist, even though she is pretty dense (I can completely see why though).

Overall though, I'm interested to see where this anime's going to go, even though I am not expecting a masterpiece.

On a side note, Tomahisa's cheek kiss and endcard caught me off guard. Let's see if we can get more beefcake for the endcards in the future. ;)

I'll wait for Sunrise-senpai's foray into the male idol category instead.

I like this episode! I just have no idea how I'm going to remember everyone's names. I also wish I had seen a little bit of Tsubasa before she started working with B-project, but maybe we will get a flashback or something.

Heroine is way too clueless and nervous around these guys. -sigh-

It was okay, but kinda generic. Felt like an otome game opening lol.

Aizome and Goushi stand out to me, so I guess I might look forward to Thrive?

Oh hell yes, no more magic school idol bullshit. Legit recording studio, legit music notation. I love. The art is on par with Utapri which is great but animation a bit rough, like Utapri s3.

My favourites are Goshi, Mikado, Hikaru and Tomohisa! In that order. THRIVE has always been my favourite unit ever since B-Project CDs started releasing.

I'm gonna have a blast with this show. Seems like it'll fill my void that Shohari once took.

It's realistic for the two singers to not notice since most pop singers aren't trained in harmony and stuff and usually memorize what's on the sheet rather than feeling it. I'm guessing she has perfect pitch or a good ear already. However, it was unrealistic for the recording studio workers to not notice for several hours. It was something I noticed within a second lol.

the whole ep was fun, though that scene where kitakore was trapped in a cage with their performance outfits seriously came out of nowhere lol

i've been following bproject for months now and a lot of the planned "media" isn't released yet (it's going to be made into a game after the anime?) and i love the songs they've released so far. THRIVE is definitely my fave unit. I can't wait to hear more of Kato Kazuki since he's actually a singer and hasn't done much voice acting. Can't wait for the next ep!!

It's pretty good, actually (since I'm not a fan of music anime as a whole). The heroine was clueless, but I think it's not in that all-annoying-way and the song was great.
On another note, is it just me or does Tatsuhiro Nome look like Aomine & Kuroko-chi's love child. Seriously, that's the first thing I though seeing him o.O

This was so good ! c: Lots of bishies, nice art & music + a decent heroine ! As long as they let me enjoy my ikemen and it doesn't turn out like Brothers Conflict, everything is fine.

Ryuuji was too freaking adorable, and his reaction to Tomo's kiss at the end~ I really want to see THRIVE, the characters look so interesting !

I'm not talking about the singers, its the heroine since she has no real training? isn't it weird that she's the only one of all the staff who noticed they can't sing that part in harmony?

She has an ear for it, it's not that surprising lol
Utapri's Nanami learned piano in a day. Anime protagonists are always prodigies.

My dad also has perfect pitch despite not being able to read notes and whatnot...

The only thing off was that the recording staff should have been able to figure it out right away if they're doing that kind of job in the first place.

That was pretty good for a music-harem anime. I'm not really fan of the girl, she is a bit clueless, but all the pretty boys are making my fujioshi senses skyrocket. I can already feel ships about to attack me from behind. One thing I really liked though was the animation! It was amazing~~!

yes!! he's been singing since 2007 i think and he was also in Kamen Rider!
some of my faves: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1fCOCUFXXc
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzzan7MqFV8

his voice is really good i can't wait to hear him in more Thrive songs! I hope we get to hear them sing Love Addiction in the anime ;o; It's my favourite song out of every song on B Project so far. I mean with a hit maker like Takanori Nishikawa producing i think the songs are going to be good!!

We don't know yet why the president chose Tsubasa though, maybe they got to know her (she worked at a music store before and maybe they got to talk to her and stuff lol) and realized she has quite an ear for music despite not knowing the technical stuff. And maybe they knew that it would be good for the units if they had someone who actually cared about their well-being like Ryuuji said... just my two cents. It's a t least more realistic than the magical/supernatural aspects of uta pri.

But i'm also really thankful our female MC doesn't have kiwi eyes lol

Niiiiiiiice. It's nothing special but I can see myself enjoying this.

Ryuuji is my favourite by far. Holy fuck he's so fucking cute it's unbelievable. I'm sad he's stuck with a character I don't for but maybe Tomo will grow on me.

Tsubasa also seems to be not useless which is always nice to see.

The first episode was alright, especially in the beginning, my mind was wondering off. But it was more interesting after we got past the intro. Tsubasa is a pretty good female MC I'd say, she's timid like all the rest, but she can at least speak and sound like a normal person. Her hairstyle is cute too.

I just want to hear Thrive tbh, I don't care too much for Kitakore. OnoD's singing voice is not my type (I like his voice acting though). Thrive's got the best voices imo, and a really good combination too. I love all three voices, looking forward to Kato Kazuki's voice acting. I became a fan of his singing after I hear Majin Bone's OP, even though I didn't even watch that lol.

Also, I laughed when we saw Tsubasa's vision of Kitakore fighting against the dissonance. Was not expecting that. A bit exaggerated, especially her horrified expression.

The characters designs are great though, and it'll be interesting learning about the characters' personalities and such. Ryuuji is a cutie :> I also like the voice Hanaecchi is using for Yuuta, it's a bit unrecognizable compared to his usual voices.
