Idol Incidents (Idol Jihen)

Japanese Title: アイドル事変

English Title: Idol Incidents

Introduction

The story features a parallel world with a Japan that is similar ours.
The government is full of vested interests that prevent them from solving problems. Complains include the expanding income inequality, environmental pollution, the garbage problem, the lack of available childcare, repeated corruption and others.
Idols have finally stood up for their country! Idols who have become politicians for 7 different political parties (the Heroine Party, the Sanrai Party, the Starlight Party, the Wakaba Party, the Sub Culture New Party and the SOS Party) are breaking this feeling of hopelessness with their singing and dancing! They will bring back people’s smile and envelop Japan with a shining aura!!
