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.

But I'll get right to it, as of today [31st March 2017] Idol Jihen has a dismal mean score of 5.79. This average consisting of 1427 people giving it a rating of 6 or below out of 2018 people total, meaning around 70% of people who watched this anime agrees it definitely isn't outstanding among others from this season.

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 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

Hellow everyone this is Shawn aka KuraraTrigger and I will be reviewing Idol Jihen and with that out the way let's begin.

Idol Jihen the definition of CREATIVITY!, and it's by far the best to come out to date. I have some theories why that's the case but nothing worth sharing. Consider Idol Jihen like Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius and Masami like the Roman Emperor Nero. They each had the same level of absolute power over the world's most powerful nation, but how they used that power was completely different.

Keep in mind that I haven't watched Idol Jihen in over a decade, so I am writing read more

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
