Well that's true too. Lol i guess it's like comparing what Ayumi Hamasaki does to say AKB. Those girls aren't allowed to date, while Ayu dates whomever she wants lol.

I want more Syo and Otoya. Still rooting for HarukaxOtoya in the end

Me too! but I'm pretty much resigned to a Tokiya x Haruka end. In S1 I felt so sorry for Otoya, he was getting pushed so much only to get dismissed as a potential love interest... Oh well, I just hope he won't have less screentime in 2000% what with Cecil around. (And that whatever the main conflict will be, I hope it's not going to be as boring as the Tokiya storyline in S1.)

But I like him best with Tokiya, not that it's never going to happen... XD;; So I go for the next best thing: Otoya x Haruka x Tokiya OK, that's not gonna happen either, so him with Haruka, yeah.

RE: ep 2. I think someone on the writing staff has been reading or more likely watching Chihayafuru.

Glad I wasn't the only one who thought so. It's like Karuta level to the max.

Cecil is a real character. Like how the guys had to pull him away a couple of times from Haruka. Camus is pretty awesome, he takes after Shining. So its already STARISH vs Cecil.

Syo's nails really make him. I like all the guys, they all are funny in their own ways, but Syo, Otoya, and Tokiya are my faves.

So Haruka has to do a new song.
That should be interesting since Cecil gave her an inspiration.
Seems like I'm watching this just because of the characters.
The story has just begun, but I not so sure it will reach the level of 1st season.
Others were not too happy about Cecil's arrival though..
That guy has some interesting skills and no shame at all.
Camus is a completely different story and that icy behavior really suits him.

Everytime I see Cecil I can't help but think of Saliyaa from Garnet Cradle (doesn't help that Elements Garden also did the OST for it). But he was pretty awesome during the episode although the other Starish are the guardians of Haruka's chastity so he's going to have it difficult.

Highlight of the episode however was Camus' entrance

It's hard not to love some of these characters. The show is one I probably wouldn't enjoy, but for some reason it sucks you in. Definitely a guilty pleasure hahaha.

Curious as to what the plot this season will be though. Last season it was kind of Haruka making it through the school and trying to graduate and finding out who her idol was.

I wonder how Haruka's character will be like this season ^_^
I really like her and find her relatable, but a bit flat at times. She has more personality than others, like the heroine from Amnesia, but still I'd like to see more from her, and maybe talk back slightly. That'd be funny and shocking.

Sometimes I think one reason they would rather not create a strong personality for heroines of these types of games/shows is kinda like how teddy bears don't have expressions. Projection of their own self emotions onto the character.

Just saw episode 3

Spoiler:

I also liked the relationship between Syo and Hyuga explored in the episode. It kinda relates to all of us in a way. When we put someone on a high pedestal, it's only going to hurt us more when they finally fall from grace. Though that didn't really happen in here, Syo is finding out more about Hyuga, and a harsh reality that they are in a way rivals now that Syo is an actor.

In this episode: Complete Lack of Basic Safety Measures.
(OK, there was a safety rope when they were filming.)

Random notes:
Spoiler for ep 3:


As for the OP, it's growing on me but I liked S1's OP better, both the song and the visuals. (I thought it was a pretty well made OP.) This one is all right, but I don't know, to me it feels like Miyano's voice isn't strong enough for this song. (Could be just the mixing, but it was the same with S1 OP, except there they wisely arranged the instrumentals not to drown out his voice.)

By the way, I just noticed that Haruka's boobs light up and sparkle when Otoya grabs her arm. XD;;

That's why he's going into acting and not solo singing haha

That reminds me of the best part of the episode: MAXIMUM MANLINESS!!!

I loved that outfit Syo had on. It makes me happy that everyone changes outfits in the show, makes it a bit more realistic.

This was the first episode where I truly recall Syo and Haruka having a "moment". I bet it'll happen with the others too. Too bad he'll never end up with her because he has Natsuki

Oh and the music I was talking about that I loved was around the 8:25 mark and when Syo was trying to jump. I love that one.

Btw I read a question on Crunchyroll that was intriguing,

Anyone know the answer? Was it in the game? Either way it sets up the focus for the season.

Syo's cheerfulness always brings a smile to my face.
His fired up side is fun to watch as well.
The Uta Pri award thing sounds interesting.
Watching Syo on the set was just ROFL
At least Nanami gave him the push he needed.
This episode was all about Syo ^-^

As for BGMs, at least two of the BGMs during the character intro scenes in ep 1 were based on the character's insert song in S1. (Otoya and Shou definitely, perhaps Masato, too... but not Natsuki or Tokiya, at least as far as I'm aware. I don't remember Ren's song. )

As far as I know it's an anime only thing.
