The birthrate in Japan continues to drop … Enrollment at schools everywhere has declined and their administrators are beginning to fear the worst … In this midst of this turmoil, at one particular academy, a legend begins to rise. Faced with imminent closure of the school, a plan was hatched: The creation of a ‘School Idol’.
This idol grew in fame, and the number of students attempting to enroll skyrocketed. With this plan, the school had no trouble keeping its doors open.
In response, other schools followed suit, and a competitive School Idol Club culture was born. School idols increased both the popularity of their schools and whipped students into a frenzy about supporting their home idols.
