The joy of living like an idol.
Anyone who aims for that is bound to shed tears and sweat, and sometimes even blood. But, despite all of that, they will continue aiming to become an idol.
Everyone wants to shine and make a living from it. Everyone wants to become number one and make their fans happy. Everyone wants their dreams to come true and everyone wants to prove doubters wrong. Everyone wants to show that they can do it and they want people to support them. Everyone wants to overcome all hardships that will come their way. The resolve to become an idol is the only thing on their mind...
No one gets thrown into the spotlight from the beginning. Everyone starts off weak, and only the strongest person - those who don’t give up - will reach the top. This is a painfully passionate story about the girls who are willing to persevere through the harsh challenges reality throws at them to realize their dream of becoming an idol.

Suzu Narumiya: Kanata Aikawa
