Haru Nabatame, Rio Seibu, and Kyouka Tamaki's idol unit, TiNgS, is on the verge of disbandment. However, if they can fill all two thousand seats in their upcoming anniversary concert, their idol careers will live to see another day. This quota is seemingly impossible for a group like them, especially when the most people they have had at a show is 37. Fortunately, they are placed under a new talented manager—Naoki Hinase.

While initially reluctant due to past experiences, Naoki takes charge of TiNgS after sensing Haru's genuine passion for idols with his own remarkable ability to see the shine of someone who is lying. Despite the challenges she faces in this ambitious endeavor, Haru wants everyone in the world to love idols, even willing to become the shining guidepost—shine post—to accomplish her dream.

Shine Post is an anime adaptation that is a part of the multimedia project of the same name by Konami Digital Entertainment and Straight Edge.

One of the best parts of the growth of the anime industry is the influx of idol projects we’ve had in the past few years. Seemingly every season we have 2-3 really solid ones including some really special ones recently. That said, I think Shinepost is the best new idol project we have had in the past few years, easily. Studio Kai managed to do something that idol studios struggle with, craft a compelling story and realistic nuanced characters.

On the surface Shinepost seems like your run of the mill idol show with cute girls, some catchy songs and nice performances, but where it sets itself ...

Paripi Koumei idol group version???

Idol shows are generally regarded as a niche market with a small target audience. Many people dismissed this show as a typical idol show, including myself, who would never have had the opportunity to watch this hidden gem of a show if I hadn't noticed the show's slow and steady rise in rating as the weeks passed. I definitely enjoyed the show more than I had anticipated.

Right away, the idol group TiNgS was on the verge of disbandment due to not being able to attract even 100 patrons to attend the show in the previous 9 months, and a manager ...

Mixed Feelings
Shine Post has a fair bit of wasted potential, but the character interactions are enjoyable enough to help tug it to the finish line despite never really deviating from the structure of its generic narrative.

The early episodes are definitely where the show is at its weakest, working through very dime a dozen teenage insecurity character arcs to the point that they double up on the "no, I don't deserve to be center" plot back to back for two of the main characters. Then the show gets incredibly dumb, revealing that the group TINGS's main struggles boil down to how our protagonist Haru is just ...
