What is the plot of Phantom of the Idol?
The story revolves around a jaded pop idol named Yuuya, who is part of a singing duo named ZINGS. Yuuya believed that once he became famous he’d live a life of leisure and adulation, but as it turns out being an idol is a lot of hard work! While his popular and charismatic partner, Kazuki, is out there giving 110% every night at their concerts Yuuya has started to dance sloppily and act hostile towards the audience. Yuuya’s fans have started to hate him and even his agent wants to cut him loose.
After a particularly dull concert, Yuuya is feeling dejected and slinks backstage where he encounters a bubbly girl, who is dressed stylishly, full of energy, and is dying to perform on stage. Her name is Asahi Mogami and she’s a popular singer. Yuuya decides he wants to help her. There’s just one problem – she’s been dead for a year. But if ghosts exist then Yuuya figures that spirit possession must be a thing too. A devious plan begins to form in Yuuya’s mind, if he lets Asahi borrow his body to sing then he just has to sit back and reap the benefits. It sounds like a win-win situation…or is it?
