Anime of Tomorrow
Uta no Prince-sama Ep 2
Final impression – average
Haruka has received her first assignment as a student at her private music school. She’s been paired with Ittoki, one of the boys that helped her on the day she took her entrance exam. He’s in charge of singing and lyrics and she’s in charge of composition. However, despite their desires to work in the music industry, neither of them has experience making their own original work. As they stumble through their project independently, it dawns on them that working together will produce a much more cohesive piece.
There’s nothing really offensive for male viewers of Uta no Prince-sama, despite the strong themes that are designed to appeal to girls. However, the plot feels somewhat rushed and is being guided by feelings and backstory that don’t get properly filled in. Overall it gives a distinct impression of being incomplete. It’s not a bad anime and certainly feels good. But that’s just not enough to hold my interest.
