Uta no Prince-sama (うたの☆プリンスさまっ♪ Uta no☆Purinsu-sama♪, lit. "Song Prince") is an otome Visual Novel released by Broccoli on 2010 for the Play Station Portable. An anime adaptation by A-1 Pictures started airing on the Summer 2011 Anime season.

Ever since she first heard him sing, high school freshman Haruka Nanami has dreamt of writing a song for Hayato, a famous pop idol. To make her dream a reality, she enrolls into Saotome Academy, an elite private school designed to teach idol hopefuls and the composers that work with them the Ins and Outs of the business. While there, she gains the attention and friendship of a colorful cast of male idol hopefuls, including the cold and aloof Tokiya Ichinose, who claims to be the identical twin brother of Hayato.

Oh, did we mention that the principal is voiced by Norio Wakamoto and that one of the teachers is a trap? The page for the character sheet is here.

Uta no Prince-sama provides examples of:

  • Always Identical Twins: Shou has one, though he only appears in the games.
  • Always Someone Better: Tokiya is this for Otoya.
  • Attractive Bent Gender: Shou, when in episode 5 is dressed as a girl.
  • Bishonen: It is an otome game, what did you expect?
  • The Casanova: Ren, and it does not go unnoticed by the other guys.
  • Cast Full of Pretty Boys: Complete with a trap.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: Otoya Ren Natsuki Masato Tokiya Shou
  • Country Mouse: Haruka lived in the country for most of her childhood and quickly becomes overwhelmed by the fast pace of the city when she first returns to one.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Masato, Tokiya, and Otoya.
  • Custom Uniform of Sexy: Ren wears the average uniform without the blazer and with his shirt open.
  • Dude Magnet: Haruka is this, even if she doesn't seem to notice it.
  • Eyes of Gold: Haruka.
  • Fake Twin Gambit: Tokiya does this when entering the Academy in order to try to break away from his Hayato persona and debut as himself.
  • Fridge Horror: Everyone's efforts to cure Syo's problem in Episode 5 may very well been making things worse considering he has a heart problem (not mentioned in the anime).
  • Friend to All Children: As seen in episode 3, Haruka. Also Tokiya, as seen in episode 8.
  • Genki Girl: Tomochika.
  • Gratuitous English: Many of the songs include English words and phrases in the lyrics.
    • Principal Saotome OWNS this trope.
  • Hot for Student: Ryuya and possibly Ringo.
  • Ho Yay: Plenty. Couplings include Ren/Masato, Natsuki/Shou, Otoya/Tokiya etc.
  • Idol Singer: Tomochika and the guys' main goal is to become one.
  • Ill Girl: Yeah, Haruka. At least before going to Saotome Academy.
    • Also Shou, with his heart condition, although it doesn't make it into the anime.
  • Image Song: Each episode centered on a guy has a song sung by him.
  • Implausible Deniability: In the game, Haruka's ability to believe that Hayato and Tokiya are different people is astounding.
  • Ineffectual Loner: Tokiya.
  • In-Series Nickname: Tomochika is called "Tomo" by Haruka and some classmates and Masato is called "Masa" by Otoya.
  • Keet: Otoya.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Tokiya is initially insufferable and rude towards his classmates, but
  • Lethal Chef: Natsuki.
  • Lucky Charms Title: Uta no☆Prince-sama♪, with the anime title being Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ Maji Love 1000%.
  • MST: The show is simulcasted on the English version of Nico Nico Douga, which displays the video's comments while it is playing. Guess what most of the viewers decided to do.
  • Man Child: Natsuki, much to Shou's dismay.
  • Naive Newcomer: Unlike her classmates, Haruka knows next to nothing about the idol industry (due to living in the country and not having a TV) and doesn't recognize Shining Saotome and Ringo from their idol days.
  • Nice Hat: Shou usually has one.
  • Nonuniform Uniform: Shou wears a sweater instead of the blazer.
    • Same with Masato, although unusually, in the game, he carries the school's blazer with him, implying he actually wears at least three layers throughout the day.
  • No Sense of Direction: Played for Laughs when the guys think that Haruka will get lost on her way to Hayato's concert.
  • The Quiet One: Masato and Tokiya.
  • Raised by Grandparents: Haruka was raised by her grandmother.
  • Shrinking Violet: Haruka.
  • Soap Opera Disease: Haruka claims to have had this when she was a child. Symptoms include fainting spells when stressed and maybe her oddly colored eyes.
  • Stepford Smiler: Tokiya seems to have elements of this in his persona Hayato, but is now trying to debut as himself, not someone who forces himself to smile in order to be accepted by others.
  • Testosterone Poisoning: Every movie Hyuga-sensei stars in, it seems.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Ringo.
