Idol Incidents (Japanese: アイドル事変, Hepburn: Aidoru Jihen) is a Japanese media mix project by Mages. The plot revolves around an election battle between idols who represent Japan's 47 prefectures. The character designs are handled by various artists such as CUTEG, Tiv, Mottsun*, Akemi Mikoto, Yōsai Kūchū, Mamu Mitsumoto, and Yukihiro Matsuo. The project was initially announced as a game that planned to be released in Fall 2014,[3] but was postponed until August of the same year. In Summer 2015, the same project was "rebooted" with changes to the work including the stories and characters.

In 2016, an anime adaptation was announced and aired on Tokyo MX and BS Fuji in January 2017 and finished in March 2017.


Each character and their voice actress represent different prefectures in Japan.

In 2016, an anime adaptation was announced, produced by MAPPA and Studio VOLN.

The opening theme titled "Utae! Ai no Kōyaku!" (歌え!愛の公約, lit. "Sing! Pledge of Love) is sung by Smile♥X, a group formed by different members of each political party in the show. The ending theme "Respect" is sung by Sarara Yashima and Mai Fuchigami under the unit named "with.".[7] Crunchyroll streamed the anime.[8]
