  • Its...Different. Very, Very, Different.
    It's kind of like Uta Pri...but with sculptures instead of humans, only one song, and lots of puns and very Japanese-media related humor.

    Its a boy band. Made out of busts. The main character is their manager who works very hard trying to promote them to fame and fortune...But surprisingly, these characters are actually pretty good - each Sekko Boy is in fact unique, and somehow, they manage ...

    Don't you want to say that you watched this show?
    I mean, you saying that you've watched a show about an idol group of bickering classical sculpture busts is surely to make you popular at parties, or at least memorable? It's as weird as you think it is, and has some funny moments, but mostly, you just spend the time delighted that this got made.

    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.

    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.

    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 ...

    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 ...

    What in the world did I just watch
    So...what do you get when you have a boy band of pop idols made up of the busts of Greek and Roman Gods with a manager that has an art degree and no experience what so ever managing a group? This show. Oh this show. I couldn't look away. You were that stupid fun show I watched all season long. I enjoyed you for you had man laughs to be had, awful puns, and a premise so bizarre I could not ...

    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 ...

    This anime is worth 0 stars
    This anime really sucks ass. Don't watch it. If you want to make somebody waste 7 minutes of their life, then make them watch this show. It is god awful. Whoever made this should feel bad. Stop wasting money on this stupid show. I can watch shit anime all day; it's a talent. I can't watch this.
