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!!

Have you ever wanted to see a political anime, blatantly and badly disguised as an anime well now is your chance! Idol Jihen I am pretty sure is basically a method of trying to get kids into Japanese politics by funding an anime and disguising it as something interesting to get them to become enthralled. Only issue with this is you probably want the show to be interesting and not incredibly dull if you actually wanted to get kids into politics.

Unsurprisingly, as it does surround politics; it feels like one of the most drawn out forced series. Very little occurs every episode and the nature read more

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

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
