Hello everyone! Have you decided which 2020 Winter Anime you’re going to watch this season~!? It’s Saori from Otaku Republic!
Boss( 'ω')
Hello everyone. If you want to watch them, feeling relaxed, then I would recommend Heya Camp (Not the Yuru Camp Season 2 but rather it’s spinoff). Even though the title is Heya Camp (heya=room), they never camp in the room. But we can feel relaxed, watching it!

So for today’s article, I’ll feature one of the 2020 Winter Anime since I watched its Episode 1 and thought it was good! The Anime is… ARP Backstage Pass (AR performers)

Boss( 'ω')
What kind of Anime is ARP Backstage Pass (AR performers)?
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
It’s a ‘Documentary Anime’, which focuses on the 【AR dance vocal group of four members, ARP】who belong to the avex Group!!
Boss( 'ω')
D-d-d-d-documentary Anime???????

What is the avex Group?

It’s a big enterprise in Japan, developing a variety of fields such as music, filming, management and digital industry. In Japan, we know this company as one of the group companies, where popular musicians and artists belong to, such as Ayumi Hamasaki, Kumi Koda and Tetsuya Komuro.

Meaning… This Anime was made with some secret stories when AR idols (Japanese big music enterprise produced) formed.
Boss( 'ω')
Wow~ the Documentary Anime… it’s rare, huh?
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
Yeah. It’s the Anime about the four performers (who belong to the music office, ARP [Artists Republic Production])’s various drama, where they went through their past until they formed the group!
Boss( 'ω')
Who are the voice actors?
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
They, themselves, are acting! In other words, the Characters, who work on two-dimensional version, actually perform in the Anime version too, just like the VIRTUALSAN – LOOKING, which was on air a little earlier!
Boss( 'ω')
Oh, yeah~~~ I got it, I guess!
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
So! ARP(Artists Republic Production)’s attractions are ‘singing and dancing’!! You will be able to enjoy those attractions even in Anime too~!! These are the four attractive members!!

シンジ(SHINJI)

https://otakurepublic.com/product/tag_page.html?tags=663528
He is a student who goes to the artist training school, ‘ISM(International School Of Music)in Yokohama’. He is so genius that he has kept No.1 on academic performance of each subject since he entered this school. Even though he used to play the violin when he was a little, he didn’t do well on that, which has frustrated him at that time. In Episode 1, where the four members hadn’t met yet, he was wearing glasses with black hair and very quiet in his class. We can never imagine that since he is currently cheerful and active. (For instance, Saori (I) didn’t even notice that they were the same person. That different…)

レイジ(RAGE)

https://otakurepublic.com/product/tag_page.html?tags=663526
He used to be one of the members of the Indie’s band, called ‘CROSS BONE’. He was scouted by the agent, then joined the ARP. He has a little bossy attitude and never uses honorific when he talks. Even though he is a little arrogant, his singing and dancing skills are so high. Since he was a little, he has made much effort to go on to the higher-level stage, with his best friend, DAIYA. By the way, he eats so much that he even said ‘I will accept your scout if all my tuitions, boarding fees and food expense are free.’ during the interview for the ARP. (The president accepted the condition since he liked his honest and high-spirited attitude.)

ダイヤ(DAIYA)

He used to be a member of the Indie’s band, ‘CROSS BONE’, just like RAGE and got scouted and joined the ARP. He has a common sense, always stops RAGE who does whatever he wants to do or say. He takes really good care of other members, which you can see in Episode 1.
He is good at rap music. When he was in the CROSS BONE, he played the guitar as well as the vocal. He was the winner of the street dance international competition as well. He has full of talents. Saori (I) has a feeling that he will have the toughest time from now on because of his serious and kind personality, compared to other four members.

レオン(LEON)

https://otakurepublic.com/product/tag_page.html?tags=663529
He yearned for SHINJI when he first joined the ARP. He is a half Japanese (his father) and half Brazilian (his mother). He joined the ARP with scholarship. When he was performing at the school festival, the President scouted him to the group.
He is a little goofy with a peaceful personality.
He is good at singing with high note and dancing in a fast movement.
He is perfect on almost everything except for drawing pictures.
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
Can I ask you a serious question?
Boss( 'ω')
Yep.
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
LEON-Kun sings extremely good.
Boss( 'ω')
Wow~! He’s just like a pro singer, huh?
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
At the end of Episode 1, he started the song with a cappella, which was awesome…!! Listening to them sing, I realize that the avex Group is producing this idol unit very seriously! For those who haven’t been into ARP yet, watch LEON-Kun in Episode 1, where he was in the spotlight!
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
So! It seems to be the awesome Anime as one of the 2020 Winter Anime, huh? Once again, it’s the Documentary Anime, where we can feel closer than the two dimension and more freedom than the three dimension! So… check out the ARP Backstage Pass!!!
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
Already now! We’ll see you all at the next article! Bye now~!
