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.
