Increasing income divide, creeping environmental pollution, unsolvable waste issues, childcare waiting lists being discussed without those concerned, repeated corruption… The government, smeared by vested interests, can't do a thing against the many problems and sources of discontent. It's in this situation, with Japan cornered with no way out, that idols rise up to save the day!

The Heroine Party, Sunlight Party, Starlight Party, Bishoujo Party, Wakaba Party, Subculture New Party, and SOS Party. From these seven idol political parties, the idols who have become National Diet members and representatives for each prefecture will smash through the sense of stagnation covering Japan using the power of song and dance! They'll bring back the smiling faces of the people, and wrap Japan in a glittering aura!!

I was so disappointed with this anime that I decided to write my first review on it to express my dislike.

Starting with story, the concept of idol politicians is an idea nobody has used before and for good reason, it doesn't work nor make sense. The storyline is typical and half-assed with the recurring theme of "Don't give up!" and "Friendship can solve all the world's issues!". It also reuses the same major morals of taking care of the environment and the people which is fine but predictable. The politics within the story were executed poorly, nothing was particularly realistic or good for that read more

I saw there were some bad reviews for this, but I really enjoyed it.

I found this is show entertaining and sweet. The plot was a little slow at times but a show like this doesn't need to be super fast paced or have a bunch of twists. It is cute and made me feel happy and smile. I love Natuski and Shizuka's relationship. They are really heartwarming partners.

I don't think there is anything wrong with having a show like this, especially in these trying times. It doesn't have the tone of some weird political propaganda. I support strong, cute anime girl politicians

No show this season screamed "Wasted Potential" more than Idol Jihen. Wait!.. A show about idol politicians has wasted potential? Believe it or not yes it does. In fact, I'd say Idol Jihen had all of the ingredients to make it great. However, it had neither the talent nor the drive to actually get there.

Like most people when I read the premise of the show I wasn't hopeful. It seemed like a shallow idea made purely to make a "unique" idols show when really it was just going to be another idol show. Why would idols become politicians? What sense did that make? And episode read more

Hey, LA didn't know Ruby Kurosawa from Love Live Sunshine grew up to be a politician!

This kind of premise of being idol AND a dietwoman is by all means a crazy and to be honest laughably weird premise, especially for the idol genre makes this kind of idol anime a weird outlier. LA doesn't know how to exactly tackle this kind of anime besides the "strengths" and "flaws"...let's start with the strengths first shall we?

For what a weird and crazy premise Idol Jihen has, the only thing LA was immediately worried about was the balance between it's idol elements and political elements, thankfully how straightforward read more
