Before that, really quick. Let’s take a look at what Shine Post is all about, courtesy of the official website’s synopsis.

We want people all over the world to love idols! A beacon of light for all … that is us, we are Shine Post! Kyoka Tamaki, Haru Nabatame and Rio Seibu from idol group “TiNgS” have big dreams but only small achievements. According to them, the best manager in the world is the only one who can help them in this situation. “I will not be your manager,” they received as an answer. It is the first time that this person has lost his motivation, but does he have a hidden power? This is the story of you and the girls who shine in their quest to become absolute idols.

If you’re curious about what this project consists of, we can tell you that you’ll be seeing these adorable girls all over.

The project includes a smartphone game by Akihiro Ishihara,  a manga in Kadokawa’s Monthly Comic Alive magazine, and super fun live concerts.

But wait, there’s more! An anime adaptation of this idol-themed light novel series is set to premiere in the summer of 2022!

The animated music video for the TiNgS idol group’s song “Be Your Light!!” is sure to make you want to add this anime to your watch list.
