“With dreams of becoming a composer and someday writing a song for her favorite idol, Haruka Nanami enters the Saotome Academy, a prestigious performing arts school. If successful there, she’ll be able to join the Shining Agency after graduation. However, it won’t be so easy when Haruka is already surrounded by potential idols and composers. On top of that, her homeroom teacher is a current idol, the headmaster was a record-breaking singer, and the academy itself is an eccentric place where anything could possibly happen.

In the end, right at the graduation, two students are to be teamed up by the choice, one will take the role of the idol and the other should be the composer. After being paired up, they will sing a song that was both composed, written and sung by them. If successful, they will join and take the spot as the new Shining Agency debut artists. In addition, romance is strictly prohibited at their school.”

Review

Okay, yes. I have officially fallen in love with Anime. I didn’t used to watch it ever, but I’ve just fallen in love with so many good shows and this one was silly, but still an enjoyable watch. If you are looking for a deep story, then this is definitely not the show that you are looking for, but it was still so cute either way and definitely gave me some good laughs.

The characters were funny and there was some development and there were some quite good songs. I have an obsession with the soundtrack as a lot of it was piano music and as a pianist I automatically have a love for that kind of stuff, so I just can’t stop listening to the soundtrack, even though I have NO idea what they are saying.

The animations were cute in it and the drawings were adorable, and yes, you can’t not help but fall in love with the cast. Maybe it’s just me, but I honestly think some anime characters are like…really..really..really good looking. Damn animes by setting standards too high xD

But yes, this was honestly a cute little thing to watch if you have some time to spare and just need a distraction. The episodes aren’t that long but I will tell you, by the end of Season 2, you will wish that they continued on, just because.

You can watch all 2 seasons on CrunchyRoll which is a website with many full seasons of anime shows. Make sure you scroll down and find the button for Season 1 as I started Season 2 before I realized I had skipped parts. Click here to go to the website.

And enjoy! Let me know what you think. ^^

Unfortunately there are no trailers, so you’ll just have to trust me on this one xD

Don’t Know What To Read?

Stuck for suggestions for a something to read? Going stir crazy with winter? MLCWO to the rescue.

How about checking out the new book of short stories by Kelly Link? The stories described as eery, gothic, surreal are something that might hit the spot on a cold winters day. HERE Read more about Kelly HERE.

However, if you are stuck and can’t get to the library The Guardian has got a free read available on their website. Despite the fact it appears for children the story has an interesting take and it is free. Free. HERE.

Enjoy!

Okay. So this is going to be on MASSIVE post about the ENTIRE Guild Hunter Series by Nalini Singh because there were 7 books (not including the novellas which I still have to read) and I feel that one LARGE post would be good. Otherwise you will see 7 posts of me ABSOLUTELY FANGIRLING!!!!!!!!

I. AM. SO. IN. LOVE. WITH. THIS. SERIES.

I will say this now. This is a mature reader series as there is graphic violence and….quite graphic sex scenes so this is a 17/18 year old or older book…NOT YA AT ALL!
