Story
Nanako becomes a local idol at the request of her uncle. Together with her upperclassmen Yukari, the two become less than enthused about the idol lifestyle as they are only interviewed by the local shopping district, appear on low-budget cable programming, and perform live on the rooftops of department stores. However, they still give it their all day in and day out. Oh, and as for their pay, that comes from the city’s taxes.
