The story revolves around three ordinary girls named Asahi, Nami, and Hinata who are aiming to become idols, but they repeatedly fail in their auditions.

This show is incredibly funny. I haven’t laughed this much for a while now. There is a little action in the show since the main characters Asahi and Nami are being chased. The show is very well directed. The story is very well done as well… Like its not just a silly comedy. There is a story there. I won’t comment on the romance… The show kept me interested, it never got boring. Though at some pointed you would go like “Seriously?” Then laugh. It’s amazing. If your looking for a good laugh that’s the show to watch!

Overall Rate: 8/10
