you can't believe how happy i was when i heard about that. this game has an amazing story. the characters are all lovable and the songs are really catchy. if they made the anime w/o any harem in it and the story was the same of the game's story i'm p sure it will be one of the best idol anime ever.

i can't wait to see my son iori... animated and beautiful ;-;
