I really hope this is actually really biting satire of the idol industry/political cronyism of the Japanese Diet...

But I'm afraid this is probably not satire at all and just another example of a moeficiation of a collection of "things" genre of smart phone games/anime.

Hmm … A corrupt industry is trying to stand up against the most corrupt institution in the country !! Very logical indeed Very Happy

And how do they plan to do it ? By turning more and more people into this !!

I wonder if we will get to see scenes like this in the anime ? Very Happy

I guess the the Idol industry public relations machine is in full swing. Edward Bernays would be proud Very Happy

An idol anime with politics and idols going up against a corrupt government? This is a nice spin on the idol genre.
