Kazuki Yoshino and Yuuya Niyodo are idols who make up the duo ZINGS. While Kazuki gives his all in every performance, Yuuya views the job as just another means of making money. Yuuya's apathetic attitude toward the fans and inability to take his job seriously causes his manager to give him an ultimatum: unless he starts putting in more effort, he will be fired.

Backstage, Yuuya meets Asahi Mogami, an idol dressed in a colorful costume. Asahi would have had a bright future ahead of her—had she not died a year prior. Even as a ghost, Asahi wants nothing more than to perform for fans again. When she finds out that Yuuya does not hold the same passion for the idol life that she once did, she is overcome by a fit of rage and demands that he let her take his place. In a strange twist, Yuuya wakes up to find that Asahi has possessed him and can do what he is too lazy to do himself.

With Asahi performing for him, Yuuya thinks he has a ticket to an easy idol life. However, Asahi has other plans. Though she is no longer alive, she wishes for Yuuya to find the ambition that she still has. Together, she wants them to become the best idol the world has ever seen. But can an unmotivated man like Yuuya ever care about anything besides money?

Un anime simple, carismático y entretenido... (no apto para quienes busquen romance, aviso antes de que se desilusionen)

Comedia naif, con humor básico y constante.
La historia es bastante simple y la trama avanza rápido, sin vueltas, así que no aburre pero tampoco sorprende mucho.
Tiene sus momentos tristes y dramáticos obviamente, pues la protagonista es una idol muerta, pero pasan bastante rápido y se centra mas en la comedia.
Los personajes no son tantos, todos son simpáticos (a su modo) y tienen el desarrollo necesario para empatizar con ellos, no mas, no se van por las ramas.
Destaca Niyodo (el idol de pelo marrón), que tiene bastante mas peso ...

Mixed Feelings
Like, it wasn't bad or anything. The show was super cute and all, but at the same time, it flew under the radar for me. I think a little of it may be a result of the story, and maybe this is also an issue with the development of the anime, but some things were so heavily focused, whereas other aspects that could have used more time did not receive the attention they needed. After episode 4, I wondered if I wanted to continue watching. I am never one to give up on an anime, so I went in to see if there was something ...

A very interesting premise that got my hopes up in the first few episodes, but unfortunately it's not developed and leads to nothing as you watch more. Explains why there were just 10 episodes - even that was probably hard to squeeze out of a "story" with no story. Even when we get moments with hints of possible development, like the risk of the ghost girl being recognized by a die-hard fan of hers, the authors chose to not shake things up. Disappointing.

Well, I guess most people aren't in it so much for the story but for the music. Those will be happy with the ...
