  ***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!
