Despite performing as an idol group for three years, Idolls! has failed to make its mark on the entertainment world, only boasting a meager three fans. While the girls are venting their frustrations, a small wooden statue in their room suddenly starts speaking to them and convinces them to book a venue that seats one hundred fans. The only problem is that their performance is in just nine days! Now in a race against time, the girls must prove themselves worthy of stardom or face the harsh reality of failure.

After the first episode of 'Idolls!', I honestly thought this was going to be terrible. But after getting used to the style, its actually a cute short series. Compared to other anime that made the Music genre in anime very unappealing to me (Actors Songs Connection), this was actually a relaxing watch inbetween darker anime.

Its a simple story about a group of four amateurs trying to become idols and giving it their mediocre all in doing so. They work hard, its just given what this anime has shown they could definitely work harder (advertise better as well), but they're still learning the steps. ...

After doing a bit of research on this series, I'm honestly okay with this show. According to Anime News Network, this series has the voice actors wearing motion capture tech and performing live. They're planning to take this idea and turn it into a VTuber Live Performance show for platforms like Youtube.

With that in mind, I don't mind this show. The idea of four idol girls working hard to get 100 people in their audience is not an original idea. Given the production mindset though, they're practicing this new idea and probably wanted to start with a simple idea just to see if this could ...

The best character in this anime is the totem.

Ten episodes were enough to make this anime completely rubbish.
Honestly, I did not expect much from "Idolls!", Only that it would have common elements and that I would not disconnect from your proposal. However, although it really did happen, it wasn't quite what I wanted. First, it must be said... The combination of CG, music, history and characters is tragic. Very tragic. Offensive. It is not legal, it does not introduce interesting elements and it does not manage to have the minimum of identity. I would not like to compare it with Love Live and Bang Dream, ...
