There's two sides to every story, and in the case of Back Street Girls there's two sides to the leading men, too: yakuza and idols. After a trio of hapless yakuza make an unforgivable mistake, they have two options: Commit honorable suicide or go to Thailand for gender reassignment surgery so they can become a popular idol trio. Once a yakuza, always a yakuza, but these three are going to try their best to make their boss loads of money as idols.
Back Street Girls kicks off as part of the summer 2018 anime season on July 3.
