After receiving a flyer from Maina Ichii—a member of the idol group ChamJam—and seeing her perform at a local concert, Eripiyo falls in love with Maina and decides to devote her life to supporting the shy and reserved rising star. Eripiyo's charismatic presence and iconic red tracksuit soon give her recognition as Maina's one and only unrivaled fan.

Whether it be a performance or a small fan gathering in the middle of nowhere, Eripiyo is guaranteed to be at every event Maina participates in. Not even an injury or Maina's seemingly cold attitude toward her can stop Eripiyo from pursuing her dream of seeing her beloved idol perform at the world-famous arena Budoukan.

- I thought I'd make this my last visit. Sorane-chan was my hope. She was all that I had. But apparently, she doesn't need me. Then there's no point in me coming here anymore.
- Could you sum all that up in a haiku?

Stories about socially unacceptable hobbies/subcultures/lifestyles too often fall into one of the two extremes. Type 1 is a true believer’s exercise in self-celebration, saccharine feel-good tales that gloss over any negativity, which you can take as either irresponsibly naive or maliciously whitewashed (e.g. Shirobako). Type 2 is “look at these dweebs” hot takes made by an outsider with the authenticity and subtlety of ...

The Idol culture is cancer for men. Liking an Idol and trying to support her is fine, but going to the point where you would literally give your LIFE for her is totally stupid. If you are a man, touch some grass.

This is a slice of life anime about the fans of the Idols, which I think was very innovative since I've never seen an anime based on something like that, and that was really interesting and enjoyable to watch. I liked other Idol animes like Love Live and seen the "hero's journey" is something that will always entertain people but in this anime the ...

However there's something that kept bothering me about it, which is what prompted me to go back and write a review in the first place.

Oshi ga Budoukan Ittekuretara Shinu is absolutely horrifying, not in your typical horror curse type of thing, but in a much more psychological and real way, because it glorifies some of the worst aspects of otaku and general consumerist culture.

You have these main characters that are crazy ...
