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.

Selection project: Can I copy your homework? I promise I’ll change it

Idoly pride: Ok, but seriously make sure you change it.

In all seriousness, Selection project and idoly pride have a lot in common. It’s pretty apparent that DG were really influenced by Idoly Pride’s story and wanted to put their own twist on that. Right down to the heart transplant, dead sister that was an idol plot-line. While the story was basically copy and pasted, I still really liked Selection Project and actually think it to be the best idol show this year, yes, including Superstar!.

What made me feel that way? Well simply put, read more

Well well, if there was a way to sum Selection Project as a whole in a letter form, it's this:

Dear Kadokawa,

This is your cease-and-desist letter about Selection Project.
It's almost completely similar to another show that we produced early in the year.
Of course, we're talking about Idoly Pride, which you just blatantly ripped off without any thought.


Selection Project's the Idoly Pride wannabe that pulled the exact same drama strings, only to play the UNO reverse card towards the audience and subverting expectations (but not by much). Obviously, if you're thinking that this show tries to be innovative somewhat (which I'd assume that read more

Selection project. Out of all the seasonals I never expected this one to be my favorite. Comparing this to more known shows including the love live franchise, what really caught my eye is how good the production quality for this anime is. After the series ended I can firmly say that I am keeping my 10 and here’s why,

Firstly, I would like to put out that I find it great when idol MCs show/vent out their frustrations because in reality life isn't always great. Having an MC that isn't always happy can present more humanity towards the anime. I absolutely loved the first few episodes, read more

Spoiler Warning.
This show takes the concept of idol shows and gives an interesting take judging by the first episode. It's in the realm of something akin to American idol or Xfactor or well it would be if it decided to continue in an interesting direction. Unfortunately the show does not do this as because these girls develop a sisterly bond with each other whilst knowing each other for almost no amount of time. Not to mention the ENTIRE point is they compete against each other in this cutthroat industry. In episode 10 they give us hope with a plot twist where the girls refuse to read more
