I only have girl idols on my agenda right now, but I did watch an episode of UtaPri a few years ago at a friend's bidding, and I was intending to continue but haven't yet. I seem to have a better enjoyment track record with reverse harems than I do with normal romance shows, ha. Would be more fun to watch with a fan though.

Speaking of Aoi Shouta, he recently finally got me over my lifelong bias against Japanese male vocals with excessive vibrato. I love the chorus of the Hatsukoi Monster ED:

(Sadly the band shown on screen does not seem to even exist in the actual show.)


. . . . . . try Marginal #4, it's actually really good, story-wise, and the music is amazing. (check the Unicorn links ^^)



EDIT: I should add, before someone else brings it up, the Hitchcockian classic '98 anime film Perfect Blue is often mentioned in idol discussions because it portrays an idol's psychological breakdown as she is gradually exploited and victimized by the industry. I heard one guy say he can't enjoy anything about idols after watching it. But it was the first anime about idols I watched, and it didn't have that effect on me. I guess it's just that I like the romanticizing of the dream, regardless of what the reality can be.

It's not like being a cowboy, a pirate, a ninja, or a knight was as glamorous or desirable in reality as it is in most stories. But happy stories aren't less valid than "gritty" ones.

Also, for the music, Tsukiuta has mostly solos, and each month has a different songwriter (each month has a boy and girl character, but the anime mostly just features the boys).

Aoi Shouta's songs -> https://youtu.be/IzFx-VtGt8E https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgXdC56ti1s
