765 Production Studio manages the unique talents of 13 professional idols as they slowly make their way to the top and become country-wide celebrities. But the girls' journey is far from just fun and games: hard work, sweat, and tears are some of the prerequisites needed to flourish in this industry—and for 765 Pro in particular, a watchful eye out for their rival, the infamous 961 Production.

As the girls' fame grows, however, their time together as a family diminishes, and now the very popularity they sought is threatening to tear them apart. A difficult balance of work and bonding must be achieved, or they risk everyone going their separate ways. The personal and professional ordeals of these idols can not be conquered alone, but with each other's loving support, any obstacle or hardship can be overcome!

Prior to finally watching this & making this review, I'd been dying to dip my toes into this. Feel like I've seen stuff from every other idol/music franchise except for the one with "iDOL" in the title. This shares various similarities with those other shows I've seen but something about this drew me in.

There isn't really a long term objective at play here. The show is basically a slice of life anime looking at the lives of idols work towards simply gaining exposure and make their mark in the idol world under their studio 765 Production, and as idols they find themselves eventually taking up ...

Mixed Feelings
I’d like to think that I’ve made plenty of ventures into different genres and styles of anime.

I had to push myself to take a leap of faith and decided to use The Idolm@ster ...
