White it has a pretty similar setting to UtaPri, unfortunately this one does not have a reverse harem theme, but it’s more similar to Shonen Hollywood or Show by Rock, maybe with a touch of UtaPri and Free. Anyway, it’s one of the anime scheduled for the Fall season and I will definitely be watching and ready to talk about it. Will you try watching it too?
