i loved this anime. I usually don't like music anime but this one was AWESOME. I developed strong feelings for almost all of the characters and i actually kinda learned the lyrics to the songs. It is a more serious anime than most things but to be completely honest i almost started crying a few times watching this. It is defos in my top 10 favorite anime. Its because even though the technical side is slightly lacking, it is completely made up with the story. All in all, amazing!
Having fallen in love with music themed anime after watching Nodame Cantabile I hadn't really been able to find another music anime that I really liked until i watched this one(still watching K-ON).I really liked this anime. The rock themed music was great and the story was solid and serious. Not much in the way of comedy but that is fine by me as i take my music seriously and prefer my music anime to be the same. The characters were all interesting unique and full of personality. Character development was really well done. You could definitely see the the characters develop throughout the series. Not much to complain about here, it was an all around good show so i would suggest you give it a go.
