posted on by Kevin Yuan

Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it will stream MAGES' Idol Incidents (Idol Jihen) television anime series. The simulcast will begin on January 8 at 11:30 a.m. EST, and will be available worldwide outside of Asia. The anime's official website previously announced that Crunchyroll would stream the series in North America and Europe.

The anime will premiere in Japan on Tokyo MX and Tochigi TV on January 8, and will also air on the BS Fuji, Sun TV, and Gunma TV channels. The anime will stream in Japan on the d Anime Store.

5pb. Games and MAGES had announced the project as a social smartphone game in 2014 with a slated release in fall 2014. The game launched in Japan on October 21.

The anime takes place in a parallel-world Japan, where idols stand up against a corrupt government as "idol Diet members," and then work to bring back the smiles of the Japanese people through song and dance. The idol Diet members belong to seven different political parties, including the Heroine Party, the SOS Party, the Subculture New Party, the Bishōjo Party, the Wakaba Party, the Starlight Party, and the Sanrai Party.
