Due to a weak heart, Suzune Miyama has remained bedridden for most of her childhood. However, despite her illness, she has always dreamed of becoming an idol. Eventually, her opportunity comes in the form of the seventh Selection Project—a brutal series of competitions best known as the starting point of the legendary idol Akari Amasawa.

Anxious but excited, Suzune enters the preliminary round of Selection Project. Though her singing dazzles the judges and her fellow competitors, Suzune is unfortunately overcome by her nerves and freezes up in the middle of her performance. She recovers quickly, but the stumble is great enough that she loses the winning spot and is disqualified.

Or so it seems—until Seira Kurusu, the girl Suzune lost to, announces that she plans to drop out of Selection Project, believing Suzune is a more talented singer and therefore deserves the right to compete. Suzune is caught off guard by the decision, but promises Seira that they will meet again as top idols. She prepares herself for the challenging obstacles that lie ahead.

I will try not to mention the obvious AiPura similarities here…

SelePro is the only idol show that I've watched so far, and boy was I for a surprise. For starters, throw away the notion that this is an idol show upfront – this is really a reality slice-of-life show wearing the clothing of an idol show. When it comes to its plot, SelePro focuses more on the interactions between the characters and how the show binds them together as performers within and without the stage – a rare look into the hostile world of idols and performers (in real life, that is). The characters themselves are ...

Mixed Feelings
I never been big on idol anime but decided to give this one a try... needless to say it is a experience that I will forget :). The show is pretty much about rip off ____ Got Talent and all that. (SPOILER WARNING AHEAD)

For me it started out fine, I was enjoying myself some what... but then they just never had anyone voted off and pulled a FRIENDSHIP IS POWER cliché. I never hated this cliché so much until this show, even after watching my little pony AND not to mention ALL of Fairy Tail. Then after they had no one voted off ...

Part I Overall

This series has horrible story telling. It has a lot of plot holes that can be extremely confusing in the series. This plot of the series does not really tell its own story but rather a mix of Idoly Pride(75%), Lovelive!(10%) and Zombieland Saga(15%). In my opinion, Selection Project is the worst TV Show that I have ever seen.
However, not all parts are considered bad at all. In Zombieland Saga Rip Off Part, they did really well, such as an interesting idea like "Idol that start from zero and be growing"
For Music
I don't like almost song in this series, especially the OP theme ...
