A group of aspiring idols gather at Takanashi Productions and are entrusted with the company's future. The seven men who have just met represent a variety of totally different personalities. However, they each have their own charm and possess unknown potential as idols. Forming a group, they take their first step together as "IDOLiSH7." Their brilliantly shining dancing forms onstage eventually begin captivating the hearts of the people. In the glorious but sometimes harsh world of idols, they aim for the top with dreams in their hearts!
I reccomend this anime if you just wanna have a laugh and watch some idol drama. Story: The overall tone is relatively grounded; The idols work for an agency; they act professional in interviews and such; they do things like hand out fliers to promote concerts, practice at their dance studio, and even go down to Okinawa to film a music video. Given that setting, the plot twists feel super dramatic. To spoil just one of them-- eventually Nagi (yellow) reveals that he was the one who submitted their music to the company originally, not because he wrote it; it was the legendary idol Zerooooooooo's writer, who met Nagi in [fake country not Switzerland] and inspired him to become an idol before they imply he died? Of? Consumption I suppose? Animation: Just about servicable. Sometimes the characters look cute. The CGI dance sequences, however, look so, so, bad. Sound: I enjoyed the songs. I also enjoyed hearing the WISH VOYAGE instrumental pop in every now and then. Characters: You know what? The characters are actually super interesting and fun. I didn't think I was going to bother learning their names, but I ended up remembering all their weird plot twists and psychological problems even after the anime ended. Riku - I love his plot twist because like. This was totally unnecessary. Oh my god you stupid little tomato. He's pretty precious. Mutsuki - literally does not have a talent. They ran out of applicable talents. Nagi - Hahahah oh my god. This guy is my fave. He's so silly 100% of the time and if you dislike him it'll ruin the whole show for you. Gre-- who's the green one... Yotsuba? Broccoli? YAMATO - His deal is he's the mature and reserved one. This is fine. Tamaki - doesn't give a shit about his job! He's here for revenge-- what?? Most of the time he's just bitching and eating pudding, but at one point he goes feral. Honestly a great character who I relate to a lot. Sougo - Threatened Tamaki with a knife. A pretty nice guy! Iori - Got Mutsuki into this gig because he's his older brother. Manages things from behind the scenes and looks after Manager-chan. Compotent yet melodramatic. TRIGGER - Tenn is like, I respect it but what the hell is your deal? Gaku is cool for actually trying to figure shit out. Ryuunosuke understands the importance of friendship. Great trio.
So if anxiety could have a pic, Idolish7 would be it. It gave me so much anxiety and frustration cause of the unnecessary miscommunication between the 7 characters. Like seriously! Plot wise it's not new, unnecessary drama thrown in..it just felt like they were dragging it. Songs are nice and tje parts jwere they jave concerts I love the animation there! That's all.
Rated 10/10 or 5/5 because I had fun watching this despite its flaws. It was crazy fun and made me laugh, smile and tear up at times. Definitely a feel good anime that I personally enjoy. Ngl, the brother plot between Tenn and Riku did save the show for me when I was getting a bit bored in earlier episodes. It kinda carried the show for me, that and the slight romance between Gaku and Tsumigi. I do wish we got to see more performances, more struggles for idolish7, and more of a struggle with Riku's asthma (it feels like the show liked to magically forget he has it and now he has no problems performing by the end of this season) I look forward to continuing the cliffhanger in the next season/show.
