Heavy themes of Japanese entertainment are everywhere, so people who aren’t into anime or J-POP may not be into as much. Your characters work for an idol company and even go so far as to train in singing and dancing to boost themselves. The story repeatedly dumps you with the idol culture and makes you curious just how much of it is truth or exaggeration of the real deal. When going up in ranks and completing side missions, your characters will end up shown in an anime cutscene of a music video, which then gives them boosts throughout the game.
