    Episode 1

    This is no place for idols.

    So it begins with Ai starting her life at theater school that's a pretty cutthroat place, and has a fateful encounter with the tall and talented Sarasa. Things open up with a check on talent as Sarasa is ahead of everybody else, but it's because of that fact that she needs to learn quite a lot while at school. And then there is Ai as while she is an accomplished idol, being cute and energetic doesn't exactly translate well to the theatrical stage. And then the two become roommates to start off what ought to be an interesting yuri relationship. Not a bad start, but this show just isn't my cup of tea and coming in, this was pretty low on my hype list, especially with Saturdays featuring another crowded lineup this season.

    As always, I'll check out a few more episodes before determining if this show passes the audition that is my trial period.

      Episode 2

      How to win an Oscar.

      Sarasa can be such a crybaby seeing that she badly wants the lead role in the Rose of Versailles play seeing that she's a huge fan of the manga and was inspired to pursue a career in theater after seeing the play on the same stage she hopes to act on. But of course she has quite a lot of competition, and not to mention she's too tall for the role. The class is introduced, and Sawa is just annoying, all while Sarasa is someone who just can't be contained. While this show looks like it will at least be interesting, I'm just not feeling it.
