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.

After years of waiting and several OVAs, finally 22/7 fans got what we’d been wanting, a well done anime.

22/7 is based on the 22/7 multimedia project which was started about 4 years ago. The anime follows the origins of the group and their first year or so together. Unlike traditional idol shows that I’ve seen, 22/7 takes a grittier and dare I say it, darker approach to the idol genre.

From the get go, we see it’s not all rainbows and sunshines in this world. This just feels pretty real. The colour palette even reflects it, opting for more muted shades and tones. This read more

For some reason 22/7 has little to no negative reviews even with this relatively low MAL score so I thought I would take it upon myself to justify why it is the way it is.

For one, 22/7 has a ridiculous premise. I will spoil it right here, so here we go: The reason why all 8 girls were summoned to become an idol group was because a giant Wall (yes, WALL) that an entire secret facility was build around on spit out a golden plate that said so.
I want to inform anyone that might not know this, but 22/7 is a real idol group. read more

22/7... That is the title of the anime...sounds like a mathematical thing. However, what is behind this mysterious number? This numerical value certainly seems familiar to one or the other in relation to π (Pi), but mathematics does not play a major role here.

22/7 or "Nanabun no Nijūni" is an idol group that was formed in late 2016. The group itself consists of eleven members (2 + 2 + 7 = 11), eight of them appear here in the main anime (the other three will appear in the OVA, 13th episode).

With no idea in mind, our eight girls receive a mysterious letter that does not read more

Takigawa Miu

It all started with Takigawa Miu, a shy and anti-social girl. One day Miu found a letter containing an invitation to join an idol named 22/7. The idol group which consists of 8 member, has its own story. in each episode there is a background and reasons for how these 8 member arrived at 22/7. There are lots of anime titles out there like this but none are as unique as 22/7.

Carrying the theme of idol, this anime does not only contain girls singing, dancing, or cheering. what makes this interesting is that it contains not only those 3 things, but this anime is read more
