▍About Phantom of the Idol
Phantom of the Idol is a Japanese comedy manga series by Hijiki Isoflavone. It has been serialized in Ichijinsha’s shōjo manga magazine Monthly Comic Zero Sum since December 2017 and has been collected in five tankōbon volumes. An anime adaptation of the manga premiered on July 2, 2022.
The comedy series centers on Yuuya, one-half of the boy pop duo ZINGS, also known as the laziest performer in the Japanese music industry. His partner is out there giving 110% every night, but Yuuya’s half-assed, sloppy dancing, and his frankly hostile attitude toward the audience, have the fans hating him and his agent looking for any excuse to cut him loose.
After a particularly lifeless concert appearance, Yuuya meets a girl backstage, and all she wants from life is to perform. There’s just one problem: She’s been dead for a year. If ghosts are real, is spirit possession really that much of a stretch?
