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, ...

Mixed Feelings
TLDR: Disappointment. If you're here for the girls and the voice actors, fine. If you're here for the anime and story? Go watch Idoly Pride. Selection Project stole the plot and made it worse lol. If you're here for the music, just listen to the OP and ED on youtube.

I'm going to be pretty critical of the show, but everything is my honest opinion.

Disappointment is all I can say. The show had so much potential, and not only did it not make use of it, it trampled all over it and threw it in the trash. Before I blast you with all the negatives, I'll ...

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 ...
