Genre) Limited Series (drama)

Format) 8×29’

Synopsis) The weird and wonderful world with «underground idols»

Ai is a frustrated twenty-something whose boyfriend dumps her for being overly-fixated on her image on social media. Alone and tired of always trying to one up her friends, Ai discovers Hana, a plain-faced «underground idol» who can’t sing, dance, or allure. Weirdly struck by how genuine and earnest Hana is, Ai soon finds herself drawn to the world of idol super fans, a realm rife with sweaty, obsessive otaku passion. Will the leap from her days posting pretend-glamour to becoming an otaku be a blessing or a curse? Either way, Ai’s life can never be the same again.
