Synopsis

Increasing income divide, creeping environmental pollution, unsolvable waste issues, childcare waiting lists being discussed without those concerned, repeated corruption… The government, smeared by vested interests, can't do a thing against the many problems and sources of discontent. It's in this situation, with Japan cornered with no way out, that idols rise up to save the day!

The Heroine Party, Sunlight Party, Starlight Party, Bishoujo Party, Wakaba Party, Subculture New Party, and SOS Party. From these seven idol political parties, the idols who have become National Diet members and representatives for each prefecture will smash through the sense of stagnation covering Japan using the power of song and dance! They'll bring back the smiling faces of the people, and wrap Japan in a glittering aura!!

The first episode is now live on Crunchyroll.

Episode 1

That was quite an interesting take on politics, using idols to make campaigning less cutthroat at a time where it is encouraged. So it begins with idol auditions in the way of running up a steep hill. Only Natsuki and it, and she's not exactly qualified as she just couldn't handle Shizuka's tough training, and it turns out that despite her talent, Shizuka's aura is another story entirely. But despite failing, her energy and enthusiasm never faded and for that, she's performing and totally impresses making her a Dietwoman. That was a solid way to begin this show that puts quite a twist on idols.

Cute and fun with a cast of likable, if familiar, characters. I was expecting it to be sillier and more over the top though so I'm curious to see where it goes tonally. It's sort of straddling the serious and silly line right now without picking a side. The music, always important for an idol show, was good but not really super catchy or anything. The performance did look pretty good, though, as did the show in general. I'm definitely on board but not blown away by any means.

Best parts:
- minute 18:50 to see cute girls dancing and singing.
- the guy who looks like Rocky before the ED song.
- also when the mc says that she'll do her besht.

Idol girls and politics? That's a first.

Gonna nitpick on one thing, I am not digging Natsuki's voice actress.

This was weird alright; nonetheless an interesting concept to make politics more interesting.
I know whom to vote for in the next elections

Idols and politics? Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaa?!?!

Idol hell is real people. This is the kind of stuff that makes you think about how big the idol industry actually is. So big to the point that people thought of idols actually running the country since they essentially already run their lives.

I know, cause I am currently in idol hell. (Used to play SIF, active player on Deresute, pre-registered for the BanG Dream mobage, also played Million Live and Deremas, knows about SideM, Enstars, Photokatsu (Aikatsu) etc, etc End my life fam)

Um okay not sure what to think of this one. Idols running into politics. Not sure what to make of this..

So is this a political satire or a satire or idol shows?

I'll keep watching cause it such a bizzare concept.

Cast is likable so far and the main girls seems to have talent in what they're doing. I think the show is okay at the moment but not too impressive. Granted the songs are somewhat catchy but I'm not overly impressed by the first episode.

Just alright so far.

Odd show. Was somewhat entertaining but not a strong show so far. I like Yurika Kubo so I'll at least stick around to hear some more of her.

I'll stick it out for a couple more episodes to see if i get hooked or not. I'm an [email protected] elitist, and I thought AKB0048's darker take on idols was cool. Though AKB was frustrating since most of the super young girls thought they were idols for recreation and not what they actually were: revolutionary soldiers/terrorists/freedom fighters...though i still watched it all. Woops got a little off track there.
