Hoshimi Productions (星見プロダクション) is a small entertainment agency in the Hoshimi city, a place that is best suited for observing the annual meteor shower. Nagase Mana (長瀬麻奈) made her sensational debut from the agency by winning a series of live battles. Then she quickly ran up the idol ranking “VENUS Program.”
A few years later, Hoshimi Productions holds an audition to find new idols, including Mana’s younger sister Kotono Nagase (長瀬琴乃) , and Sakura Kawasaki (川咲さくら) who has a voice just like Mana’s. In addition to the two, more idol candidates start gathering at Hoshimi Productions. Then, ten of them start living together in a dormitory.
Meanwhile, TRINITYAILE, who aims to surpass Mana, and LizNoir, who has a strong sense of rivalry against Mana, stand in front of them and compete with each other with pride. With the mixed feelings surrounding Mana, the idols strive to become the best.
