Drop Out Idols – Fruit Tart #01 — Broccoli Girl

September 25th, 2020


Silly faces abound.

Another pre-air. Broadcast begins on October 12th. Season preview will be up on Sunday.


There are girls. They want to be idols. The twist that they're all basically failed or wannabe idols, but for no particular reason, isn't exactly competitive against things like "they're zombies" or "idols that also surf missiles" or similar. We're not going any kind of ironic or incisive take here. Christ, there's even the standard insert song and dance sequence fifteen minutes into the episode that they all perform perfectly to full instrumental backing, and the crowd reacts with raucous applause and throwing them money. Yes, yes. Clearly failed and inept idols.

So it'll basically be down to the silly faces, and since this comes from a four-panel comic source, there are plenty of those to go around. That said, the child star/broccoli sales girl seemed to have a monopoly on them in this episode. Maybe she's a favorite of the producers. Maybe she's just easiest to draw because of the giant hair buns. In any case, unless all you're looking for are girls making silly faces, there's little for you here. But luckily, we've gotten nearly all of those for the season out of the way already, and the season hasn't even started yet. Now that's efficiency!
