LAST IDOL is an upcoming Battle Royale survival program airing on TV Asahi that will follow female idols and their journey to debut in an Akimoto Yasushi (48G/46G Franchise, Onyanko Club) produced 7-member girl group. Aside from making stars, the program hopes to raise more awareness to idol groups that may not have had the chance to succeed in the industry.

 

INFORMATION ABOUT THE APPLICANTS

14-26 years old vetted through a singing, dancing, and interview process

Will include non-idols, underground idols, and idols from an already established group

7 girls will be chosen to star in episode 1, and each episode will have a challenger that will have a 1:1 battle with a girl for their seat.

 

WINNER PRIZE

- CD debut in the 7 member girl group

- A regular TV show on TV Asahi

- Being the covergirl on a weekly magazine

 

Official Website

 

Expectations from people in the industry and more here: 

 

and before y'all PD101 enthusiasts come in and say aki-p stole the pd101 idea, mnet stole the SSK idea

I know PD101 stole the SSK idea and everything but why did he have to put exactly 101 idols on the show? He copied the copycat lol

*Edited OP because I realized the website didn't mention how many girls they were putting in the show, and the comment video had interviewed 101 people in the entertainment industry about it. https://last-idol.jp/comment.html

Usually? Sure. But there have been a few that could sing(I don't know about dancing). Seriously, you think out of 300+ girls that not even one doesn't know how to sing? That goes against the laws of probability.

I guess we don't the full set of rules yet. Do all 7 girls battle it out every episode to keep their seats? If the current seat wins, does the challenger get eliminated? 

 

There's allot of talented girls in the Indie Idol scene. I hope more than a few can get a spot on the show.

It's not 101 idols, it's 101 industry people interviewed. They didn't mention how many girls auditioned. And since there's 7+1 each episode, there couldn't be more than 90 episodes overall, could it. Japanese shows are usually weekly basis and seasonal basis, so the most episodes we'll see are either 12 or 24.

I'd guess it's about the 20 ish EPA but 30 mins.

Interesting first ep, but so short. Still, I'm glad it's only 30 min. so it's easier to watch in one sitting. I'm going to dig around for more info on the contestants.

 

Edit: The first line up

The first Challenger is Orin, the leader of the Aomori based group Ringo Musume.

Apparently they've been around for a looong time. Unofficially formed in 2000, the first official Generation was in 2003. They're currently up to the 8th Generation! fD4JAZe.png I thought they were an Indie Idol Group, but they're the real deal. Here's their newest MV, just released today. Get that promotion girls!
