To become an idol, I shed blood, sweat, and tears. Even so, I push on. I want to shine. I want to earn it. I want to become number one. I want to smile. I want to make my dreams come true. I want to look back at a sea of people. I want to be noticed. I want to find it. I want to overcome obstacles. I have only pride inside my chest.

No one is in the spotlight from the beginning. Everyone is weak. Only those who do not break will reach the highest peak to become an idol. This is the story of idols who face big dreams and harsh reality.

Shingeki no Kyojin sundays? More like Idoly Pride Sundays. Idoly Pride was second only to Mushoku Tensei in terms of enjoyment for me this season, and it was pretty damn close. This was definitely the hidden gem of the season.

Idoly Pride was always going to get a high score for me. It’s really hard to mess up the idol formula. Cute girls, cute outfits, songs that are bops, etc. But, the show exceeded all expectations that I had and was such a pleasant surprise. The best way that I could describe the series is a mix between 22/7 and Love Live. It’s quite a bit read more

PRIDE. What do you associate with the word "pride"?

Every idol would surely want to be able to say with full pride one day: I have fulfilled my dream to become the very best. The idol dream requires a lot of hard work in addition to talent. You always have to train and practice more than the competitors. But if you manage to be at the top, you can be proud of yourself.

Imagine you are at the peak of your career, you are only one step away from climbing the top and then the most terrible imaginable thing in life happens: a fatal accident. Mana Nagase read more

While “idol anime” could be considered a genre unto itself, idol shows typically fall into a “slice of life” or “comedy” genre classification. Cue Idoly Pride – which, despite sharing the basic industry setting as many other idol anime – delivers an emotional story of soul-searching and self-discovery, as opposed to episodic bits of comedy or daily life in showbiz.

While most of the idols of Hoshimi Production (the main agency in Idoly Pride) get their introduction and basic characterization in the first half of the show, Idoly Pride breaks from the common “girl of the week” format often found in idol shows with large read more

In a word, disappointing. Idoly Pride had a fantastic opening episode that soon degenerated into a very by-the-numbers, predictable storyline. The principal issue with the show is that the characters are never meaningfully challenged and overcome every test without any difficulty. Our protagonists are going to be up against the biggest veteran idols in the industry? I can't wait to see how they'll work to prepare for this! Oh, they just did more of their usual barely coached training routines and won in their first face-off, okay. There is no reason to be invested in their struggles, because, aside from paying some minor lip service read more
