So are we talking about memories of idols, or the memories that idols possess?
Earlier today, the official Idol Memories YouTube Channel updated with a pair of new promotional videos. The two teasers highlight in-show idol units StaRing and Shadow, respectively, as they show off their unique musical stylings for the audience.
Idol Memories is an original series from smartphone game maker Happy Elements Asia Pacific. Katsuya Kikuchi (Sengoku Paradise Kiwami) is helming the project at Seven Arcs Pictures, with Rena Okuyama (Sengoku Paradise Kiwami) providing character designs. Chikako Yokata is taking charge of sound direction, while Hiroshi Onogi writes the screenplay.
The show will star:
- Vivi Lin: Moe Toyota
- Sena Hattori: Marika Hayase
- Kokona Hayakawa: Yuu Kimura
- Miku Kajiwara: Mayu Sagara
- Yucho La: Ruriko Aoki
- Nanami Hoshi: Riko Kohara

- Soichiro Kataoka: Kosuke Sakaki
- Minato Yasukawa: Seira Ryu
- Minami Yasukawa: Ayahi Takagaki

The series is set in the near future, in a world where live musical performances have found a new home in virtual reality. It’s in this space, where reality and fiction blur, that a pair of rival idol groups are locked in a fierce competition for the top spot in the “Idol League.” Failure is not an option, as glory, prestige, and the coveted “tiara” are up for grabs.
Idol Memories will hit Japanese TV network Tokyo MX on October 2 at 24:30 (10/3/2016 at 12:30AM). Several character visuals and a pair of trailers were released to promote the title, which you can check out below:
