The Story of Idoly Pride

The story of Idoly Pride revolves around two idol groups from different production companies: Hoshimi Production and Van Production. Both groups are competing in the VENUS Program, an idol scoring system that uses AI and data to rank candidates based on various factors. The VENUS Program also holds an annual tournament called the VENUS Grand Prix, where idols from different agencies vie for the top spot.

The story begins with a tragedy: Mana Nagase, one of the rising stars of the idol industry and a member of Van Production, dies in a road accident on her way to the VENUS Grand Prix finals. Her death shocks and saddens everyone who knew her, but also inspires some of them to pursue their own dreams as idols. A few years later, Mana's former manager, Kouhei Makino, works at Hoshimi Production, a small entertainment company based in Hoshimi City. He decides to form a new idol group with 10 girls who pass an audition. Among them are Kotono Nagase, Mana's younger sister who wants to follow in her footsteps; and Sakura Kawasaki, a girl who has a voice remarkably similar to Mana's.

The story follows the struggles and growth of these 10 girls as they learn to work together as a team and overcome various challenges in their idol career. Along the way, they also encounter their rivals from Van Production, who have their own goals and motivations. The story explores themes such as friendship, rivalry, love, loss, ambition, and passion.

Van Production

Van Production is the rival group of Idoly Pride. It consists of 10 idols who are divided into two sub-units: LizNoir (Rui Tendou, Rin Aiba, Yuu Suzumura, Shiori Yamaga) and TRINITYAiLE (Suzu Narumiya, Haruko Saeki, Airi Hayashida, Ibuki Niina). The group is managed by Takashi Ishii and assisted by Sumire Okuyama. The group's name comes from their motto, "Victory and Nothing Else".

The idols of Van Production are more experienced and confident than their counterparts from Hoshimi Production.
