Nearing their first debut anniversary and with their popularity still on the rise, IDOLiSH7 set a date for a live tour to express their gratitude toward their fans. Meanwhile, the Black or White event draws closer—and as the previous year's winners—the group must prepare to take on the challengers. Looking to solidify their reputation in the world of idols, IDOLiSH7 are determined to come out victorious and settle the score once and for all with their rival, TRIGGER.

While working around their packed schedules, IDOLiSH7, TRIGGER, and Re:vale meet powerful figures in the entertainment industry. In the midst of the hectic period, some members catch wind of a scandalous rumor regarding IDOLiSH7. As the members of IDOLiSH7 begin to worry about their image, their bonds are put to the test, all while a spiteful figure begins to carry out a certain plan behind the scenes.

IDOLISH7 just keeps getting better.

Although this is only the first half of season three, Third Beat does an excellent job in not only introducing ZOOL and the new antagonist, but also increasing the stakes--the drama by tearing down the status quo that was established since season one. I won't spoil the details, but let's just say that the first half of Third Beat is the beginning of the end for certain characters.

Excellent! What I love about it:
1) Excellent suspense/plot development - not even ONE episode is a waste - every episode develops on the overall plot (we're not talking about random events like some other anime) but serious events where there is a cause-effect relations.

2) Good-looking characters with character charm. Not even ONE character is mundane (or u find as a duplicate of the others).

I genuinely love every single character with my whole heart, and never felt bored for a single plot point. That is SO rare, because naturally, there's always that one "filler" episode or that one lame character we just zone out for in shows, but here, that is not the case! ...
