    The Hard Life of an Idol Manager
    This short is an outlandish parody of idol shows wherein the term idol is taken literally--this group is actually comprised of four famous stone statues. This arrangement is considered perfect by the management company because they never have to worry about their properties becoming flawed but it's an unwelcome surprise to the group's new greenhorn manager, Miki. As it turns out, Miki has been ...

    Everybody Must Get Stoned
    As of this posting, nobody has used "This Show Rocks!" as a review title. Most unfortunate. Thought that one would go up right off the bat. Puns aside, this show is ... hmm. How to explain? Back in the early days of anime in the U.S., when old fans like me were still learning the canon, we'd hear a brief explanation of a show and go "WTF?!" (e.g. Ranma ½ being summarized as "guy turns into ...

    hmm interesting first episode
    Vaporwave the show

    must suck to be an art student in japan if this is based on truths. other than that who knows where this show is headed. could be funny. Glad it's in a short format or they'd probably just beat any jokes they have to death.

    Puns... so many puns
    Strangely hilarious. Upon viewing this anime in the show list I thought that it was probably the most ridiculous looking anime I'd ever heard of, thankfully I watched the first episode and within 40 minutes had watched all available 6 episodes in a row.

    The busts are surprisingly expressive considering they're.... statues, angle changes as well as lighting really helps give each statue a life ...

    Aggressively stupid.
    And frankly, that's what makes it great.

    The level of stupid just goes up and up consistently over the course of the show, something I wouldn't have said was even possible after just watching the pilot.

    Each episode is just 7 minutes. Totally worth your time to watch the first episode and see if this show's humor matches your own.

    Season 2 pls.

    Strange and different but entertaining
    I never understood what the author was thinking about four sculptures being the man characters of a new anime. After the second episode, I understood, and was enjoying each new episode. Sometimes it wasn't logical how they spoke, moved, and even drank (one has whipped creme on his nose), but that is part of the fantasy and fun of this strange anime. Even a new phase was created " Giogio-ing".Watch ...

    Poor Miki!! The troubles of babysitting a boy band.
    Sekko Boys is a riot. It's educational, but also makes you rethink everything you ever thought you knew about buy bands.

    The short follows college graduate Miki Ishimoto, who just got hired on to be the assistant to an up and coming boy band, full of single, muscular hunks. Sounds dreamy, right?

    Well here's the catch. The boy band is made entirely of talking busts, all based on Italian and ...

  • Nice waste of time..
    If you're looking for anime to just past the time, look no further. It's nothing really special and definitely has some wtf moments, but it's something to shake your head at and smile. Overall, it's silly. I mean who wouldn't call a show about a bunch of Roman busts turned idols silly? I just want to know what the writers were on when they came up with the idea.

    Interesting concept and small enough to work
    Story; 4 renaissance busts who can talk (for some reason) decide to make a boyband

    Pros:
    - The series is wacky and funny. Not taking itself too seriously and not being to hung up on the unnecessary details, this series has the ability to quickly tell you a misadventure 4 busts and the label rep in charge of hauling them around can get themselves into
    - The story falls into the pattern of what ...

    basically a 7 minute meme
    Do you like absurdity and puns? Do you like classical art memes and the juxtaposition of high and low culture? Do you like the kind of dadaist humor from anime screenshots without context? Then you may find (some parts) of sekko boys hilarious!

    It's a pretty inconsistent show; when its on, its ON. When its off, its pretty tedious and a bit boring. There isn't a whole lot in the way of plot, and ...
