Meh that was kinda boring. There wasn't too much focus on the music except for the final few minutes so it's more so with the introduction of the main characters. There's a diverse range of them as well..

Meanwhile, animation feels average as well.
Music is alright, nothing special though imo.

Because the anime mainly focuses on the life of the members in Tsuki Pro.

Two units on the TV.

A fan of the unit is sick and asks her little brother to go to the hand shake event for her. It seems like she's Kakeru (CV: KajiKaji)'s big fan. Both groups in backstage and leaders from both units being called by both managers. The boy got in and met three young members without knowing they are the ones (thinking they are staff members lol~).

They went to Tsukiutaya, sweet shop from Tsuki Pro. 4th young member came to pick them up. The boy was able to learn who he was. The reason both leaders were called was to announce joint live for both units during the live after the event, and the boy became a fan, too with the live performance.

That young member from Procella (OnoKen's Character) next.

ED: "stella ~Kinpika Joushou Kibun~ (stella ~きんぴか上昇気分~)" by Kakeru.

Tsukiuta for me is more enjoyable than B-project so far... guess its cuz the overall setting & stuff.
Looking forward to the rest of this series, but there really are too many idol series this season though.

I can't believe the boy did not recognize Kakeru since there are a lot of pictures of Kakeru in his sister's room!

I quite liked it lol. This is pretty different from the recent otome anime where the heroine's personality is as interesting as a cardboard box. It got boring a little at times but Shunpei hanging out with the members was quite cute tbh. The song is extremely catchy too.

Somehow, I kept thinking about Kpop when I watched this lol

It was so cute ! I loved it ~

The young brother is so cute ! I like Kakeru's character.

This first episode is for me WAY better than B-Project. It was able to raise my tension pretty much.

I think I fell in love all over again. Damn these male idol shows... I don't know what would I do without them, lmao.

It was lovely. I enjoyed this way more than B-Project. And the song at the end, so catchy!

I'm definitely looking forward to the next episode!

Yeah definitely liking the focus on the idols life take, sort of reminds me of ShoHolly in that way. I enjoyed the first episode more than I thought I would, probably because they started off with Kakeru. Only reason I even started following Tsukiuta (and eventually the other Tsukino Pro stuff) is because of Kaji Yuuki, lol. Kakeru is so cute :> This episode was interesting with the sister getting sick and Shunpei going in her place, and probably becoming a fan of Kakeru. Really a breather from other idol anime.

As for the songs, Tsukiuta's songs have been more of a miss than hit for that ED. I liked the ED sequence though with all the Kakeru. The Six Gravity song was okay, the chorus part I liked though. Which is why I'm glad the focus is on the characters and not the songs. I would like to hear some of the duets though, I like those better (especially Kakeru and Koi's unit). If Tsukipro's ALIVE series is doing well, that's another idol anime I would love seeing, the music for ALIVE is soo good.

Definitely better than B Project. I like the designs here better and the personalities and interactions are less otome game-like.

I'm getting Shounen Hollywood vibes from this anime - focus on idols' everyday life rather than on music, and overall pacing of these shows is quite similar.

Kakeru's fangirl and her little brother are probably one-episode characters.

Judging from episode 1, I liked B-project better. Must be the effect of kira kira otome aura. It also had more music and less CGI, which is good.

Decent start. The characters are portrayed nicely and it gives off a cute vibe. The insert/OP song is catchy too (but I'm still not sure what to think of the music just yet and I'm still hoping for any VocaloP influence in the anime). Seems like next episode is Iku.

I like it. I like how the characters are represented and the CGI....surprisingly, I like it.
Overall, I enjoyed it a lot more than the another idol anime airing this summer.

I love it that they really respect their fans like episode 1 :) i cant stop smilling and fangirling LOL, very very enjoying it!! XD
I prefer tsukiuta than the other summer idol anime ;)

Ahhhh i absolutely loved the first episode *--* but it still can't beat B Project. Even though I gave the first episode a 10 for the interaction between the characters and there lovely personalities it still can't reach B Projects level. B Project has much more sexier guys, first episode got me to fangirl hard and lastly it gives off a reverse harem vibe so judging from both episodes Tsukiuta has to rise my Bishie meter much more higher then B Project did :P

I do wanna say Hajime, Kakeru and Shun are the favorites *---*

I've been following Tsukiuta's CD series for a while now. I own all of them, minus some of the girl CDs and damn, I'm so happy this got animated!!

I enjoyed this a bit more than Bpro since I already knew the seiyuu cast very well here and it was more conventional and normal-feeling.

I've always been a fan of Shun, Arata, Rui and Haru but I'm starting to like Hajime, You and Koi now!!


watch nodame cantabile

recommend me anything!

I'm a fan of other idol/bishies animes and I have to say the first episode was satisfactory. Unfortunately, none of the idol members stood out to me, because of their child-like and effeminate appearances. This anime has the potential of an Otome game.

...On the other hand, Mr President is...something else

..Meooooow!! now that's what I like to call a hot bishie He looks a bit like Soryu Oh, with his hair down

I can't remember another anime where CGI was better than the animation...

The episode felt very long and was kinda boring. I haven't tried B Project yet, so I don't have any idea which one is better. Guys' designs are nice but we'll see how much character they'll have, they felt kinda bland to me. Kakeru was interesting character, I don't usually like his character trope, but he might currently be my favourite.

I was expecting myself to be bored but wow i was so surprised i found myself enjoying that first episode. You don't have the typical first meeting with the heroine where they all gawk at her which was really refreshing. I'm glad to find out that this is more about showing the lives of the idols. I honestly think the music side was great, especially that song they sang at the end (AND THE ED LIKE I NEARLY CRIED COZ I WAS SO GOOD) was very catchy. I'm really looking forward to episode 2!!

I was happy to know Tsukiuta is going to be animated but at the same time I didn't put much expectation because Studio Pierrot ^^;

Surprisingly,I quite enjoyed the first episode. It's really cute and fun. I want to see them singing the songs from the albums though, especially GRAVITY and ONE CHANCE

Too adorable XD Kakeru, Koi, and Rui together. Why did Iku not go with them T^T I want my cuties all hanging out together like that one time they play in Koi's room.

Lol I was surprised that Kakeru's so tiny compared to Koi

I don't get that at all.

This is clearly a wishfulfillment fantasy, with the idols really having their unrealistic outwards personalities. And everyone being attractive, even the staff.

One thing that did strike me as realistic was how the leaders worked the crowd to make something trivial, two groups that are both products of the same company having a concert, into a big deal.

The episode was nothing too special, after all, this is a show you watch only for the bishies and the music. However...

Shakin', sugar sugar !~

OMG THAT CGI WAS GREAT ! I'm in love with the song, everything about it was fantastic, the dance also. I thought KENN's singing was absolutely gorgeous !

Sticking with this ! I want to see Rui, Shun and Hajime more <3
Hopefully we'll get a lot of songs with the beautiful CGI :D

lol at the neckbeards giving this low ratings because it's not for their dick.

It was better than B-PROJECT, and a fresh air because there's no otome setting yet.

It was a nice first episode, but usually this kind of anime focus in the raise of the group popularity or the creation of it... In this case I like the first episode but can't give the anime more than a 6 for now since I know that this episode is irrelevant for the rest since it's episodic, and doesn't matter how much I liked Kakeru he'll probably not appear much anymore...

That was a lot more entertaining than I thought it was going to be. But then, I'm usually quite fond of the "younger brother" characters because they tend to be pretty good in the comedic department.

Was neutral towards the song, but gotta say, the CGI used there was pretty damn fluid.
It's an entirely different kind of flying, altogether!

So much yaoi and yaoi sex potential.

I thought Shunpei was going to become a junior member or something like that. I bet he fell in love with Kakeru. Grow up, little Shun and make a Gravitation yaoi with him someday.

That concert looks like some cheap CG stuff you'd see in a visual novel.

I liked this episode a lot! Idol Animes tend to have the same setting, so it was refreshing to accompany Syunpei on his "journey" to become a fan. Don't know what to expect for the following episodes but I hope it will continue a bit like this
