This year's September issue of Kadokawa's Dengeki G's Comic magazine announced on Saturday that the Idol Incidents (Idol Jihen) manga will end in the October issue on August 30.

Coco Natsuki launched the manga last August, and the first compiled volume shipped on February 27. The manga is part of MAGES.' Idol Incidents multimedia project, which also included a smartphone game and an anime. The game launched in October and ended service on Monday. The anime ran from January to March and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.

Crunchyroll describes the anime's story:

The story is set in a parallel Japan very similar to the modern Japan we known today. Japan's government can do nothing about the abundant problems and discontent throughout the land. Now, at long last, idols are taking a stand to rescue a nation with no way out! The Heroine Party, the Sunlight Party, the Starlight Party, the Bishoujo Party, the Wakaba Party, the Subculture New Party, and the SOS Party: idols from these seven idol political parties who have become Diet members representing each prefecture will crash through the sense of stagnation that surrounds Japan!

The same issue of Dengeki G's Comic also published the final chapters of the Ingress: Tokyo Anomaly and Ingress-teki Nichijō -Chloe-san no Baai manga, which are based on Pokémon Go developer Niantic's earlier augmented reality app Ingress.
