Buntarou is a student who wants to be something, but doesn't know what. One day his female classmate Sayuki announces she is working on a bishoujo (pretty girl) game. Sayuki scouted him because he wrote a good script for drama club, but Buntarou doesn't know anything about bishoujo games.
***THIS IS A SPOILER FREE REVIEW*** Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya wo Mezasu is one of the many anime that shows the viewer the inner makings of certain forms of Japanese media. In this particular instance, Visual Novels take the spotlight and along the way we see how the high schoolers get from A to B in the game development process. Unfortunately...it's not quite a straight line approach. Story: 5/10 You are going to see a recurring theme in my review because of how average the show is. The first average aspect of the show is the story/plot. The driving force of this anime is to make Kuroda's goal of making a Visual Novel come true. Classmates Andou, Houjou, Kai, Kobayakawa, and Yuuki rally together with Kuroda in order to make this game happen but along the way there is “drama” and “character development”. When I say drama I mean really lame drama and when I say character development I mean the most bare bones quality of character development. It's just so...so average unfortunately. It's like the studio had a checklist and was checking things off as it happened. “We need Houjou to grow some more; ok done next person.” I really wanted to like the plot but it falls way short of other anime that explore different Japanese media creation like Shirobako. Animation: 5/10 I read some reviews online after watching the final episode in order to gauge how others where feeling about the show and the one thing that took me by surprise was how much they liked the animation. I found that the animation for the show was pretty bare bones and uninspiring. The character models are nice and attractive but literally everything else is as average as you can get. Also for whatever reason the eyes were really off in this show. The faces just seemed so plain. Sound: 5.5/10 The sound was not too bad in this show but it was far from amazing. The voice actors did a good job relaying emotion and the background music/sounds fit the scenes. Characters: 5.5/10 You absolutely cannot f*** up this aspect of the show especially when other shows doing similar topics do character development and interactions so well (referring to Shirobako again). Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya wo Mezasu provided us with some scenes that genuinely made me smile and/or laugh but they were far and few between. It really felt like a show that was going through the motions. Hell I still do not know why they introduced Kuroda's brother as a plot device. I did not care for any of the characters except for possibly Yuuki (for super cute reasons) and actually really despised Andou's character. Overall: 5.25/10 This show was hard to sit all the way through because of how mundane it came off as. I really wanted to like the show because Visual Novels are one of my favorite mediums for games but after watching the whole season, I'm not really any closer to understanding how they come to fruition. Everything about this show is lacking and if there is ever a continuation of the story I will most likely pass. Enjoyment: 2/10 Thanks for reading my review!

Bueno, llega mi analisis de 3 lineas como siempre: ¿La remcomiendo? NO. La serie es LENTA, el argumento aburrido y por una extraña razón siempre parece que nos hará ver algo que termina siendo 'nada' (un romance a 0). No tengo mucho más que añadir, esperaba más de algunos personajes como la presidenta del club la cual su personalidad pienso que se tubo que destacar más, o el amigo del protagonista (pues si lo quitáramos de la serie casi que no hubiese pasado nada)
How to put it the first episode had a lot of character building. The MC was brilliantly done. After watching the show I can see someone might either love the series or hate the series as the show starts pulling things from directions--- that someone has to have experienced before they actually may enjoy the series. What's great about that is they talk about game development an also have a lot of technical things which ryme up to interest if anyone's actually done things. Characters who give tips are ACTUALLY benificial tips like the writer who said "Just keep writing 3 kb", or the fishermen "There's not that many people who want to help a local fisherman these days." Then there's an epic scene which actually gives some meaning to the story. "Or she was actually doing more work then all of us combined." While the characters themselves are pretty normal but they are really good at normal. Some shows can't even make people feel normal.The series has a lot of genuis under the nose of the show. But besides that I can understand why someone would rate the show and dismiss it as "Stupid." In summary someone will either love or hate the show.
