I'm curious enough, so I'll check it out when it airs. In fact, I'll have a look at the web manga link provided, so thanks!

And the public audition part is an interesting move on their part.

I'm in the real world's entertainment business, so an idol anime is always fun to relate to for me. Can't wait! :)

I probably won't watch it, but I think that having public auditions is an interesting idea. I hope it leads to a solid cast.

That would be really interesting. If it does happen, I hope whoever makes it executes it well.

The name is a smart joke about how this will make a million dollars.


And have it stolen. Remember Miss Monochrome?

I sure hope it is decent.

I get the feeling this will be bad, not due to the public audition, I trust that Asahi will find the best girls for the job, my issue is the anime itself, it's handled by a very below average studio notable for shorts.

The title already sounds kind of dumb, but besides that, I'm probably not gonna watch this.
