Following their performance at the Black or White event, the idol group IDOLiSH7 is at the height of its popularity, with offers for various concerts and work coming in every day, much to the joy of the seven boys and their manager. However, as their fame continues to rise, Riku Nanase's health begins worsening due to the heavy workload.

With the gigantic idol duo Re:vale showing interest in the group and the reopening event of the Zero Arena coming up, IDOLiSH7: Second Beat follows IDOLiSH7 as they not only struggle to adapt to the challenges of the idol life but also to face their personal troubles, all while continuously meeting the expectations of their treasured fans.

Why is this anime not talked about more? It's so good? Genuinely, I know all y'all out there questioning this anime are like, "It's an idol anime, it's obviously trash, people only like it because of hot boys and pop music." Take that shit and get out of here because this anime has *substance* right alongside the hot boys and pop music.

I'll keep it a buck on the sound and art: I love both now, but I didn't always. I will say I saw a lot more to love this season as far as the art style was concerned, but I came to love it read more

The first season of IDOLiSH7 was one of the finest anime I've ever watched. It was a beautiful experience from start to finish and I was beyond excited when I read that a second season was in production. 2020 was a difficult year for anime, so IDOLiSH7 had a steep hill to climb in order to become successful. So, was the second season of IDOLiSH7 any good? Well, let's hop on and find out, shall we?

Second Beat is a fun addition to Idolish7! The plot twists and drama are engaging, and the characters are very likeable. It's creative liberties towards how they portray the entertainment industry also feels believable.

That being said, one of the few drawbacks I have with this season is that it felt a little rushed. Certain problems and plot twists are handled in a way that makes me feel like I missed something. The final episode is fine, but I wished that they extended the runtime of that episode a bit so that they can showcase the performances the characters worked so hard to perfect throughout the read more

I’ll be brief... everything was oh so joyful. The character growth was beautiful, the friendships, and relationships being one of this show’s greatest strongest points along with a believable/relastic plot. I only give it an 8 though for getting my hopes up with it’s cliff hangers (like ep 14/start of ep 15( I mean there’s no way he did it it but the fact it was the cliffhanger made me think otherwise and actually fall for the trick. Even though it turned heartwarming, I can’t help feel disappointed because if the twist followed through it’d be more interesting)). Also the zero mystery too obvious. Sometime read more
