aa i just started this game and im currently reading translations!! im cheering for the anime adaptation for this game since ive heard many positive things about its in-game story. Im nothin new to these kinds of things; im currently into enstars which has a well written story and is an all-male idol game just like i7 so i hope its anime adaptation comes out swell too!!

Wait so this isn't a reverse harem, like utapari right? That show bored me.


no, it's not. iirc the game was originally marketed as otome, but they dropped that stance real quick. you won't be seeing individual episodes with each boy trying to win tsumugi over.

not surprised to see guys assuming it's gonna be terrible because it's aimed at girls sighs. but i'm so excited for this to air!! even if you're skeptic or thing it's fujobait or anything like that, please still give it a chance, you won't regret it! it honestly has a really great story, and i'll say that some of the stuff /is/ fujobait, but even those characters are still really complex and well written, it's more just mild fanservice, certainly not as bad as you'd get in a regular harem anime...
i can't wait to see everyone animated for more than a song's length :'D it probably won't, but i hope the show gets to aya i wanna see her animated ;u;

IDOLiSH7 means a lot to me so I'm very excited to see it getting such beautiful animation, I hope they do the story justice as well!!!

I hope in the future I don't have to sort through Tsumugi hate or hate of other characters. They're all lovely and I feel sad thinking about them being insulted.

TRIGGER isn't in the PV but I love them so much and they're wonderful rivals.

I look forward to the story I love so much coming to life! Even if I'm mot looking forward to the sad parts of the story that I know seeing them animated will make me tear up. I hope people give this show a chance. It's not otome and it's not reverse-harem. It's a story with heart!

Also Gaku is best! (Everyone I know is gonna find this now lol)

Don't even bother with this guy, he is either a troll or an hypocrite, just look at his favorites lol he also posted something similar not so long ago in this news about a new otome anime, so...


Lol, his posts look eerily similar to a certain user's posts. Maybe it's my imagination. Maybe. Thank you hehe.

The male like any other Yaoi, shoujo, reverse harem, Yaoi are only as 1 dimensional sex objects


Guess you haven't properly watched those genre then. Even yaoi anime don't treat their characters as one dimensional sex objects from the trailers I've seen. There may be hentai BL OVA's like that, but regular shows don't.

Shoujo definitely doesn't do that, I can tell you as an avid shoujo reader. Reverse harem is not as ecchi as its male counterpart.

Besides, this hasn't even aired yet and the trailer showed none of what you said, so it's not right to judge it like that.

I play the game!! It's only recently tho.. And I don't understand most of it... But I can roughly grasp the full story and it's beautiful <3
And if the anime properly follows the game story, then it's even better! In fact, idolish7 have some kind of charm that makes me attracted to it somehow... I have watched some of this kind of anime too, but this is the first time I'm very hyped!!!

The anime seems to have a pretty decent animations, so I'll look forward to it! ^^

The full MV of Trigger's new song brought me to tears. Idolish has come so far, both in terms of their animation and fanbase, it's beautiful. To anyone who wants to hate on this show, thinking it's just garbage, please watch this masterpiece first.



Trigger is my favorite unit (along with Revale, the most gorgeous pair ever) and I can't stand anyone looking down on this franchise without even trying it out. Well... guys hating on games targeted towards women. What's new, really.

Don't talk about this series as if you know anything about it, when there have been so many fans waiting for it to come out ever since the game was released. If you don't like it, just don't say anything, don't rain on our parade.

Please don't judge the show before watching it. Don't hate on it it baselessly. There are fans/potential fans just trying to enjoy this and it honestly hurts to see all this hate. IDOLiSH7 is by no means your typical "bait" anime (tbh I hate calling any kind of anime "bait"), it has realistic characters who develop amazingly during the course of the story. It's industry drama story is quite mature compared to others in the genre and the rivals aren't insufferable assholes. If troyca does it right, IDOLiSH7 may just become the best of its genre.

btw, no, it's not an UtaPri knock-off, and the Tsumugi (the female protagonist) isn't an empty shell with no character. So please give it a chance :)

IS NOT OTOME. Do not criticize that they do not even know the game, when the anime comes out they will realize that everything they said is WRONG

Sep 10, 6:51 PM by NaoNanase

Looking forward to this because I see a dose of pretty boys here. Hopefully TROYCA can do this well because they have been consistent with stuff they had (except for Aldnoah, though production wise they have been consistent for the most part).

Fair enough.
