How long before Japan makes a show about how great human trafficking is?
If you were wondering how they were going to work in the "idols run the government" angle, then let me lay it out for you from top to bottom. They don't. The end. There's some lipservice here and there, but mostly, it's that instead of idols being the most important thing in the world, idols are the most important thing in the world. It would take maybe forty-five seconds of cuts to completely remove the unique selling gimmick and reduce it simply to yet another glorified slobjob to the idol industry, complete with overexcited hapless clumsy shrieking idol fangirl who is bad at everything, yet the magic is seen within her by random person, and it turns out she had the magic all along and is beloved by the entire world thanks to one godawful awkward CGI dance sequence. Lieutenant Mary Sue eat your heart out.
