What does it mean?

“I want all people to love their idols!” It’s the shining beacon that …… is looking for. Shine Post!”

Although they had big goals, but few achievements, TiNgS’ idol group was expected to find salvation in one the best business managers. Instead, a man who was lacking motivation turned up. But he does have a special power that can help the girls.

What was the first episode like?

It is true, I must admit. Shine Postis a strong candidate for a multimedia project. The director of Ume Musume and the writer of Revue Starlight, and the character designer Macross DeltaIt should be a catnip for fans of gacha anime that break the mould. The first episode had some great qualities, but I’m not sure it can live up to its potential.

This lack of conviction can be explained by many factors, including me more than anything. Shine Post did. To grab my attention, an idol anime would need to be quite wild. Shine PostWhile it may be a novelty, it still displays many of the traditional characteristics of its genre. It’s also the end of the preview guide, so it is very strong. An anime should be more than a tired shrug. This was not the case.

The stock archetype of the protagonist in Idol anime is the girl who works hard and gives her all. Although she loves to sing and dance, her dream of becoming an idol has been a dream since childhood. However, there are many obstacles in her path! There will be trials and obstacles! She’ll persevere by trying! Her! Best!!! Although I believe in trying my best, it can get tiresome to see the same thing over and over again, especially within the span of a season. There are only minor changes from one iteration of the series to the next. Haru is one of these iterations. I can’t tell you what it would be that sets Haru apart.

Shine PostIt’s notable that it doesn’t use the CG rigs commonly seen in idol series and instead uses rotoscoping for dance sequences. While it is better than other options, it still has an uncanny smoothness that is unnaturally fluid, detailed, and fluid compared to the way everything else moves. The art style contributes to this as well – it’s oddly shiny and glossy, with barely-there linework that makes them look like they have an otherworldly glow. It would be quite interesting if they turned up to be celestial beings. But, then again, it’s possible that I would eat my laptop in the surprise.

The gimmick works, but it is very simple and straightforward. Their new manager can also see lies. This is how Haru knows how sincere he is. Like all the other idol heroes. Yawn.

Its opening scene is a great example of how to get started. Shine PostThis was a pleasant surprise. Although big concert scenes are common in idol anime, they rarely look this good. The singing and dancing scenes in idol anime are often done in 3D animation. They look quite different from the 2D animation used in the rest. Although there were 3D models in the dance scenes, you couldn’t tell the difference because the art style was so consistent and high-quality. Furthermore, even though multiple characters were dancing together, it wasn’t just the same animation rigging. Each character had their own movement and timing, which made it seem much more realistic than usual for idol anime. While the animation quality throughout this premiere is impressive, the main reveal at the finale was what really grabbed me.

The majority of the episode is in German Shine PostThis anime is not your typical idol group anime. Our singers include well-known character archetypes such as the princess, dunce, or the earnest main protagonist. The reluctant manager, who vows to never again manage idol groups, is where the story really shines. The reason for his apparent trauma seems clear: he got fired for being too good at his job (thus making his coworkers feel incompetent), and as the idiom goes, “the nail that stands up gets hammered down.”

He sees auras around people, which is why he excels at his job. The assumption at first is that he can detect what resonates with a crowd (a super-useful skill for an idol manager), but we soon discover that auras are a sign that someone is lying.

This revelation rewrites the entire episode. The kindnesses he receives from strangers are nothing more than unfelt platitudes. His polite, upbeat coworkers just feed him. Rio and Kyouka are not sincere about their desire to be idols. They only tell him what they think is best to save their jobs. His day must be miserable.

Yet, Haru means what she says—and that changes everything for him. She must look like a hidden diamond in a sea filled with garbage. It’s not for idol groups that he decides to become their manager; it’s for her. The two of them are united in goal and purpose about bringing the joy of idol culture to the world—and she’s brave enough to shout it out regardless of the derision she likely receives. This is no surprise.

The first episode of Shine PostThis show is well worth watching again and again. The ending twist completely changes the way you view every character and scene before it. It shows there is a lot more going on than meets the eye in this series—and even gives us the subtle cliffhanger of what Kyouka and Rio are hiding. It’s all good stuff.

This premiere is kinda strange. Not in its content – this is basically your standard idol show, just with slightly more focus than usual on the central group’s male producer – but rather in its vibe. This premiere is one that I can view from a distance. It has many elements that are great and even amazing on their own. It was a misfire somewhere along the way, so the experience of actually watching it is not as engaging or entertaining as it should.

It’s all in the details. The smallest things are important, like the fact that it’s easy to tell which characters are voiced and which are performed first-timers. This is because they are trying to promote the mixed-media franchise’s real-life idols. The energetic music often feels like it’s enhancing the visuals and script rather than compensating for a lack of energy. Sometimes it’s in more crucial parts, like our manager character’s tragic backstory – see, at his old job he was so incredibly good at promoting his idol group that it made everyone else jealous, so he quit to spare them being hurt. That seems like it could be trying to say something about the cutthroat nature of showbusiness, but “I was just too good” is never a great way to introduce a character who’s supposed to be tragic. Our most established main character is also the one that we know the most about at the episode’s conclusion, so his entire story is cut.

There are many strong elements, as I mentioned. It looks fantastic, with lots of animation throughout the premiere. The highlight is the opening concert which effectively blends 2D with 3D elements to make an impressive stage performance. Every shot over 30 seconds includes at least one piece of animation featuring a character. When the characters move or gesture, a lot of attention is paid to their hairstyles and fabric. While the girls themselves are not remarkable, the animation gives them a depth and personality that is hard to find elsewhere. I also like the twist about Manager-kun’s ability to see people “shine” when they’re talking – at first you’d expect he’s seeing some kind of star quality in people, but it’s actually him recognizing that they’re lying. That’s a fascinating angle to use with a story based on show business. If it expands upon an opinion about the comorbidity between entertainment and deceit, it could become something very intriguing.

Unfortunately, I don’t believe I’ll stay around to see what happens. The missing chemical reaction, whatever part of the concoction, left me feeling cold and unattached. Even if I don’t care about these characters, good visuals and inoffensive songs can only keep me going. It’s a shame as there is nothing wrong with it. Shine Post – there’s just not much right either.
