Well, I like the drama..
6 January 2014 | by Malcom-FunkSee all my reviews

This is an anime that I feel very ambiguous about. There are some episode (about half of them) that are just pure fun. Characters develop and the drama unfolds perfectly.

But you have to know that this is an anime about acting. And for me, as an acting enthusiast the episodes that revolve around acting are, surprisingly, the worst ones. They try to appeal to people who have no idea about acting what so ever and repeat obvious facts again and again. The pace during the acting scenes is also kinda off, it just does not feel right.

Still, it makes you want to know more about acting and actors. If you haven't before, you'll start seeing actors as what they are - humans. That, combined with at times brilliant drama makes this anime worth watching!
