Oshi ga Budokan Ittekuretara Shinu (I’d die if my best girl got to perform at Budokan) has released a new batch of information including a new trailer! Based on the manga of the same name by Auri Hirao, Oshi ga Budokan ni Ittekuretara Shinu follows Eripiyo, an avid follower of a particular member of a local idol group called ChamJam. The new visual for the show features ChamJam and, if you look carefully, Eripiyo completely fangirling over her best girl!
The cast of ChamJam have been revealed, with Hina Tachibana playing Eripiyo’s beloved Maina. You can check out the character illustrations and casting for Eripiyo, ChamJam and Eripiyo’s fellow idol fans down below.
The opening will of course be performed by ChamJam! It will be titled ‘Clover Wish’. The ending theme will be titled ‘Momo-iro Kataomoi’ (Pink unrequited feelings) and will be performed by Eripiyo (voiced by Ai Fairouz). What is especially of note is the fact that ending theme has been written by Tsunku, who is well-known for producing music for some of Japan’s top female idols.
The songs will be released on CD on 22 January 2020. Although there will be an opening version and ending version, both CDs will contain the full tracks for both songs!
Eripiyo is a passionate otaku who has devoted her life to idol member Maina of the local idol group, ChamJam, in Okayama prefecture, while donning the red tracksuit from the local high school. She swings around her light sticks shining in salmon pink. Eripiyo roots only for Maina. She devotes all her income to her oshi (favorite member and best girl, Maina), thinks about her 24 hours a day, and cries out her name with all her might during events, which has made Eripiyo a legendary otaku among the other otaku in her area.
‘If one day Maina can stand on the stage at Budokan… I will die from happiness.’
