I would have preferred this to be a winter 2013 anime, but spring is okay. I'll just think of it as an early birthday present.

Really? That's great! I am really looking forward to this anime, even more pretty male characters!

Thank you. I've been waiting for the announcement of WHEN the second season was going to air. I am a fan of the UtaPri series (meaning the games) but I'm also a mild fan of the anime. Yes, UtaPri was a very successful anime in Japan. This series, in general, is popular as is has many drama cds, song cds, games, as well as having a few live concerts.

I will say that the anime did come off as rather weak as they barely scratched the surface of these wonderful characters but that's what most Otome game anime adaptations do. Haruka isn't supposed to have much of a personality, since she's the player character in the original games, but she had to be bland in order to highlight the main point of the series: the boys and their stories. Indeed, she can be described as a mild Mary Sue and the anime tried to give her a bit of history so give her some slack. She was adapted into how she was originally. I mean there are, arguably, worse Otome-game-to-anime female leads.

Remember. These anime adaptations act like an advertisement for the games. Therefore, they can only give a quick snapshot of each of the main guys. Since I've played the game, I can say that they chose to take an idea from Tokiya's route (Him overcoming his issue with being Hayato) and turn it into the "main plot" of the series in S1. The pacing of that "plot" in the anime was a bit rushed, but it couldn't be helped due to their choice of dedicating an episode/song to each guy with only 13 episodes. Yet, one has to consider that this anime is more geared towards the fans that are already familiar/aware of the story and have played the games. But it also acts as an ad for new fans by introducing and giving them glimpses of the main characters.

It isn't necessarily a bad anime and I respect others' disinterest in the series. I mean, not all reverse harems are for everyone. However, I do suggest this series to anyone that is into catchy songs and good voice acting. If anything, check out the series for those purposes.

With that being said, I'm looking forward to S2 to see what they decide to do with Starish plus the senpais.

This must be a wake-up call for me to start watching the 1st season, I guess >_>

Aug 24, 2012 5:06 PM by motoko09

I'll be watching. ^^
The first season was goofy and corny, but somehow deep down I still enjoyed it. <.< >.>

Nice!

Aug 21, 2012 8:56 PM by GREAT2070

Ah I can't wait! April seems so far away though~ T__T
I really hope there'll be some new songs from Starish in it. <3

And to those who think this is a waste of money, I don't think you realise just how popular UtaPri is in Japan right now haha.

Bishies and Music. Sure, why not?
Pathetic protagonist and uninteresting plot. No thanks.

Dear Japan:
Stop making these kind of animes.

Love, Regina George.

yeeeeeeeess! more starish!! ♥
more sen-pasento love!
my friend and I have been waiting for so long!
more Shou-kun!!

although I do seem like a crazy fangirl for this series, I only watch it because of the guys, and to hear my favorite seiyuus, Miyano Mamoru and Suzumura Kenichi!!
I couldn't care less about Haruka and her snake-like green yellow eyes..

Aug 20, 2012 9:26 PM by natsucchi29

The only thing keeping me from watching this and the first season... are her goddamn yellow eyes. Why, mangaka, WHY?!
