Allow me to explain! Bimajo, Tsubuyakky, and Suzukky work at the History Paradise Company, which publishes text books in the 24th century, and they’re also the evil trio, Akudarma, that gets in the way of JKK’s investigation of history!


After their last battle in history with JKK officers Tokio and Calen, they were on a long yet short time off (unpaid, of course), when they finally received a new assignment from their mysterious boss, Akudarma. 


The assignment... was to collect the mystical Dynamonds from famous people throughout history.


Another ridiculous order from the boss, but alas, that is the life of an office worker. Akudarma starts hopping through time, as they’re ordered, and try to get the Dynamonds from the various famous historical figures.


The evil trio’s revenge mission through time was about to start once again!!


Also, please make sure not to forget about the protagonists (?) Tokio and Calen!

Just as soon as she enters Sakaneko Private High School, Asagaya Minoa is dragged into the anime club by her classmate, Kamiigusa Alice, even though she knows next to nothing about anime. A classmate, Kouenji Miko, along with other anime-loving senpais, quickly turn her into an anime fan. Fighting off the incessant shut-down threats of the student council, and completely oblivious to the coming apocalypse, the anime club talks about anime in the club, at Akihabara, at anime Meccas, and at hot springs.

Operating under a small production company in Sendai known as "Green Leaves Entertainment," WUG overcame countless obstacles to beat national idol group "I-1 club" at the Idol Festival and win the event. They had suddenly become top idols... but with an idol recession going on, things weren't so easy. The days of steady and honest idol work continued for the girls.


Meanwhile, Sendai-based middle school trio Hayashi Ayumi, Morishima Otome, and Atsugi Itsuka have developed an increasing desire to become idols...
