The artwork looks nice but this could be a hit or miss. I'm often kinda nervous about original projects.

As I understand it, this is an adaptation of another of Wataruri's novels. This author knows its stuff so I'll watch this, no questions asked.

That's some naming sense they've got there Shocked Almost as long as the average LN title nowadays.

"College student"
Well, better than another high school setting, I guess.

But while her body may look older, her face looks 12.

Wataru Watari is a really good character writer, so this might actually be pretty good. The idea of College age characters pursuing work in the industry obviously brings up memories of Shirobako. With Wataru Watari writing it, I have some decent expectations, for sure. Though I do think we are starting to reach a point where "working in the industry" titles are a bit too common, I think.

Agreed, it seems like ever since Shirobako's success, everyone in her brothers is trying to do the inside the industry series. Shame, with all the idols series as of late, it would be nice to see a series that's a bit more realistic as to music idols, aside from a small glimpse you get in WUG.

^Anything in the same line as WUG would definitely be welcome in my book. Dealing with the industry in a more realistic light is the best way for them to continue making titles like this interesting to me. That's why I do sort of have high hopes for this. Wataru Watari can write character drama pretty well, I'm a huge fan of SNAFU( one of my favorite series of the past year), so I could see him going in a more grim, realistic direction, rather than glorifying it, or making it super comedic.

I don't see any particular reason why there shouldn't be more "this is how the industry works" type of shows. To me, it isn't all that different from the numerous documentaries made about World War II, the Vietnam War, the Cold War, etc; they are covering the same things/events, but if the presentation is good, then it can still be interesting.

Hmm, unsure what to think of this. Last "look at the industry" I saw was Shirobako, but didn't enjoy the episodes I saw of that one. Watari has given me some of my favourite characters, due to SNAFU, and characters I liked was what Shirobako lacked.

Can't say this is something I'm thinking is a must watch.
