The anime idol seems to be enjoying the same fate as mahou shoujo, isekai and action shonen with their sharp leap into drama and grimdark after the traditional optimistic plots began to repeat itself and don't work. Not familiar with this franchise, but I hope it won't be similar drama for drama's sake and don't used it just as an "original" commercial gimmick.

Lol they've started making weird setting for idol animes these days. Thou Zombieland Saga was a hit and I loved it but will this be anything close?


Post apocalyptic idol anime has been done before (AKB0048), however this one seems more sad and dark than AKB0048.


Madoka was likewise not the first dark mahou shoujo, but it was after it that it literally turned into an ubiquitous trend. To such an extent that now trying to play traditional magical girl's tropes not-ironically will be perceived very weird.

Stop, are you saying that this was the show that was announced a few years ago after the success of GakkouGurashi?

I'm kind of confused though, is Alice in Deadly School going to be a separate anime then, or is it going to be a separate segment in the same anime as Gekidol?:o

If some Gekas ever makes it big on greek tv he should name his show "gekidol".

I like what I'm seeing, the only thing is that some of the designs look a little on the similar side. That'll probably be better when I actually watch the show

Sep 18, 11:45 AM by NG_Chloe

Why did this come to my head from the promotional image and synopsis I don't think I'm even close lol

Sep 18, 9:46 AM by ChartTopper60
