    Episode 1

    No matter what Miki does, Greek sculptures will always follow her. She thought that by ditching art school to be a talent manager that she would finally be free of them. But little did she know that she ended up becoming the manager for idols who are talking sculptures. That was pretty funny to see Miki go crazy at the sight of those sculptures seeing that this would be the last place she would see them.

      Haha, it was lot of fun seeing Miki get pumped up, when we knew there was exasperating experience in store for her after all she said about art school. She just can't escape those statues. :D

      "We used to be a talent agency for humans, but we got sick of workin' with them. These guys, on the other hand, have profiles set in stone." Love the commentary there. I wonder if the strange idea of this show started from there.

        I think my anime idol fandom has ascended to a whole new level. Looking forward to more!

        Now to debate internally who is best Sekkou Boy... currently torn between Hermes and Medici...

          When I read the synopsis for this series, I though this would be the stupidest thing I'll ever see. But to my surprise it turned out to be extremely funny. We'll see if they will keep it up.

          And I vouch for Hermes as the best of the Sekkou Boys.

            Well that's one hell of a bizarre premise for a show. I'll give it credit for being unique, I guess. I think I liked the episode title more than the episode.

              Hits keep coming with shorts this season. (Might even throw in the 13-minute Rainbow Days for some surprising minor amusement.) Had not a clue about this one, and couldn't think it really does involve statues...but they know how to sell it, with Miki's character. From the pink streak in her hair in her art-school self, to her shattered straight-banged young professional image, she is all fun.

                Episode 2

                Poor Miki is having a hard time putting up with these sculpture heads. As if transporting them when she just got her driving license isn't tough enough, she has to cart them everywhere and there are a lot of obstacles in the way. And then comes the idol Mira, and she made quite an impression on those boys. That was pretty funny.

                  This show is a thing of beauty.

                  And the best is obviously Giorgio.

                    I like that we're getting quite a few office-suited female protagonists this season, between this, Ojisan and Marshmallow, and Active Raid.

                    It's hard to beat a dragon slayer voiced by Sugita Tomokazu.

                    Mira and her enthusiasm for "Ishibo" is fun, as is the boys' reaction to it. "You're so hard!" This show makes for some great lines. I just now realize, with that nickname coming up, about Ishimoto have "stone" (ishi) in her name. Haha, of course.

                      This show is so weird lol. I mean, doesn't anyone wonder how the hell a bunch of stone sculptures are talking and idols on top of that? Or is Isshie the only one who got surprised by that? Maybe there are other weird stuff like this in the idol business. Would be fun if this is the case

                        I still think the concept of this show is stupid, but it's too hilarious and entertaining for me to care .

                          Medici sure has what it takes to hit it big on the live action scene. He could be walking the red carpet if only he could actually walk. Miki sure has her hands full, but she's getting to know everybody.

                            Heh, Giorgio acts so cool and reassuring with Miki over her concerns about revealing Medici's big part, but in the end he's still angling to get Mira's phone number. :D

                            And as for Medici's part. I was figuring it was not a regular role in the way he was thinking, but only being used in a way a sculpture could. So that's his critical part: as a murder weapon. Loved the reveal there.

                              Oh my gosh, Medici. He's definitely my second favorite, I think, though I still have to put Tomokazu Sugita's Giorgio first. But that was hilarious. I had a feeling he was going to end up just being a prop but I do love that they act like it's his big break. I love the silliness of this ridiculous premise played straight.
