Horiuchi Yutaka-san is a popular idol, who isn't as glamorous and happy as her fans may think. Naturally, her next steps include a radio show, but one she isn't all too keen on doing. Although she tries her best to keep up her image, things quickly turn for a worse. As she soon finds out, her voice is not hers alone.

Story: 8

The main protagonist starts to lose hope of being a top class idol in Japan, but with the help of a part time worker in a radio station, she starts to regain motivation. The story is very funny and very enjoyable to read. One a idol while the other is a entertainer. Imagine a idol that you adore on a radio station that broadcasts live with the help of a comedian but you never knew that the comedian was there. Why? Because the comedian and the idol have identical voices. Because of this coincidence the radio show becomes much more enjoyable.

But, it does get better! As you keep reading, you get to see more about Yutaka and her past, which is read more
