Alright so I finished Shōnen Hollywood about a week ago and this was a strange anime to watch overall. I decided to watch this anime because I’ve watched musical anime’s before such as Uta No Prince Sama and La Corda D’Oro. So assumed there would be some similarities as well as differences but I didn’t really enjoy it.
So the gist of the show is about a group of guys that are scouted for various reasons to become basically the remix of a boy band that was around 15 years prior.
At first I was excited about the show but then slowly but surely I started to lose interest and at times get confused. Now there were some enjoyable parts like some of the songs and the funny moments but overall I found the show to be very emotional in parts and not a emotional but an emotional where I was like why is he upset.
The character development of the series was okay because we did get the back story of a few of the characters but it wasn’t enough to get me to have an attachment to them or have my favorite. But it was just enough to keep me invested in the anime a bit longer.
Currently the 2nd season is airing and I’m debating watching it once it’s finished so we will see. But I’m leaning on the side of yes just so I can see of it gets better. But as an overall grade I will give this show a C-. While it did have a few enjoyable parts to keep me interested until the end there were definitely parts when my mind started to wander and I was waiting for something more to happen.
If you have seen this series let me know what you thought of it. Also if anyone is currently watching the 2nd season let me know if it’s worth watching. Leave your comment below and like always I will always answer.
Happy Watching! ~ Anime Reviewer Girl!
