“A unit of four stone figures — the military saint and group leader Saint Giorgio, history’s original celebrity Medici, the strikingly handsome and multi-talented Hermes, and the god of war Mars who is earnest about love — who become idiosyncratic idols. The story depicts their efforts to make it in the entertainment world with their female manager Miki Ishimoto, who just graduated from college”. (ANN)
Writing, Voice Acting, and Music
- Ishimoto is very likable and cute.
- The way Ishimoto looked when she was an artist was very realistic.
- Ishimoto really helps by being the straight man and the one who joins in all the crazy.
- The God statues become likable characters.
- The show is entertaining for most of the time.
- The voice actors really bring these God statues to life. (E.G. Tomokazu Sugita makes his character Giorgio silly, Daisuke Ono makes Mars tough and strong, Shinnosuke Tachibana brings out the pretty boy in Medici).
- Has an addictive pop theme song.
- The gags and jokes don’t always hit you.
- Some of the “adult-like” humor isn’t always pleasant.
- The Sekko boys need someone to carry them in order to move yet there are many moments where they just move around without any help.
- The last leg of the show is too lighthearted on several big problems.
- The ending felt rushed because it didn’t build well enough.
- Lame and dull ending.
