Miu Takigawa views the world from behind the safety of her bangs, content with peacefully passing unnoticed through life. Reserved and timid, Miu struggles to converse with or even smile at customers when at her part time job, but she works tirelessly to support her mother and precious little sister, Haru. It is a shock when a letter arrives from the entertainment company GIP, announcing that she has been chosen as a candidate for their new project.

Miu decides to accept the invitation and heads to the meeting spot where the eccentric ensemble of other candidates filter in, all summoned by their own letters. Not long after, the girls are escorted by a manager to a luxurious secret facility, where it is explained that they must follow the mysterious directions of "The Wall," whose orders are absolute.

The 24th of December, 2016, will see the birth of idols like no other; on that day, the group 22/7 will debut, whether or not Miu and the other members are ready to take the stage.

Mixed Feelings
The whole series was fair..
There were some places I found it boring..
The background of the characters had nothing to do with their selection.

And what is the working system of the wall? An AI or Magic?

Listen to their songs from their albums made me watch this anime.. but compared to the songs I am a ...

(Contains spoilers in order to contextualize the review)

22/7's anime tries to be many things at once and somehow fails at all of them, leaving the viewers with a frustating and pointless experience. For long time 22/7 fans, it almost feels like a joke.

I've been following 22/7 since the characters were but designs created by various artists. Next to each design, there were also small descriptions of how each girl was like - Sakura's, for example, mentioned a 'dark past'. Knowing that Akimoto-P was behind the project, any idol fan would keep their eyes open for where 22/7 would go next.

As a real life idol group, ...
