Synopsis

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!!

The best thing about Idol Jihen is that he breaks with the formula already established for the shows of idols, it is still a silly anime, but has charisma and dares to experiment with situations, although impossible, "novel" for the genre.
A good way to kill time.
Visually, it fulfills, the design of characters is cute, but, they do not surpass Im@s, it could be said that it is matched with that of LL, the worst thing I can say about visual quality is that it abuses static pictures, thing That has become common in the last episodes, can be annoying, but it does not sink the read more

I'm really disappointed in this anime, expectation-wise. I mean, it's not like I should've expected it to be good considering the premise. But I did hope that there would be a serious political plot with an idol spin to it. Instead, it's inexperienced or flippant girls dancing to solve what should be much trickier problems. The villain characters (because they exist for some reason) are about as one dimensional and childishly petty as you can get. "Opposing parties", which manifest either as villains, other meh idols either hardly exist or seem like they were put there as an afterthought.

For what it actually is though, read more

The art and animation is absolutely spectacular as is the songs that go along with it. I particularly enjoy the ending with it's cute, crayon animation and simple songs. I would give full marks if the criteria were just the animation and sound quality, but it sadly isn't. ..

The characters are very one tone, even the main characters are not very dynamic. The main character is overly cute and clumsy to the point of it being off putting while her partner is so cold that it's a miracle that she can even be a successful idol and both have backstories that simply fall limp.
