Prime Minister! We Want to Fill Japan with Smiles!
Idol Incidents features a Japan in a parallel world that seems a lot like ours. The goverment is unable to act on the problems that rid the country due to conflicting interests. And there is a lot to be done: income inequality, environmental pollution, garbage problem, lack of available childcare, corruption, and so much more.
Who is going to save the country? IDOLS! Their problems are solved. 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!!
This media mix was created by MAGES, who are known for STEINS;GATE, and it will finally be adapted into an anime!
The title features some popular voice actors, like Mai Fuchigami (Assassination Classroom : Nagisa Shiota) and Yurika Kubo (Love Live!: Hanayo Koizumi). The illustrations are created by a team of creators, such as Tiv (Masamune-kun no Revenge).
The smartphone game for iOS and Android is already available in Japan. In the game, each character has a unique Japanese dialect.
The main theme is being produced by Tsunku♂, who is a leader of Japan’s idol industry.
