17 Anime Idols That You’ll Fall In Love With

Singing and dancing

Love Live! School Idol Project


It’s why we love idolsThe iDOLM@STER

Especially the following…


1Muse – Love Live! School Idol Project

Love Live! School Idol Project

This is how you start the waifu wars. So many girls who sing, change into a million adorable outfits, and have a way too addicting game to be legal


2765 Production Idols – The Idolm@ster

The Idolm@ster

Producer-san may have stood out as a great character, but nothing can eclipse these shining beacons of moe.


3Soleil – Aikatsu!


It is as shiny and glorious as it looks.


4Sheryl Nome – Macross Frontier

Macross Frontier

“BECAUSE I’M SHERYYYYYYYYLLLLL” is going to be your new catchphrase


5AKB0048 – AKB0048

Girls who fight tyranny and censorship and DES (said like “Death”) by singing and fighting in battle robots? It is all that and more. It’s of course based on the unbeatable Japanese pop idol group, AKB48.

6Yu Morisawa – Creamy Mami

Creamy Mami

The original anime idol who started this whole trend. Don’t be discouraged by the older art – this show packs a punch of retro anime goodness


7Wake Up, Girls! – Wake Up, Girls!

Wake Up, Girls!

Rotate every single one of their songs as your wake up alarm. You will never sleep in again!


8STARISH – Uta no Prince-sama

Uta no Prince-sama

Boys can be idols too! And to be honest, they do a stylishly good job of singing and pleasing the ladies. *Hip thrust Hip thrust Pirouette Hip thrust*


9MARs – Pretty Rhythm

Pretty Rhythm

Pretty Rhythm blends dancing, dreams, and ice skating within a world centered around “prism jumps.” It may sound like moe fluff, but this show has an oddly charming quality greater than the sum of its parts.


10Lynn Minmay – Super Dimension Fortress Macross

Super Dimension Fortress Macross

If you’ve never experienced a Macross show, drop what you’re doing now and watch it. Start with Super Dimension and explore the rest of this decades-long franchise!


11Kanon Nakagawa – The World God Only Knows

The World God Only Knows

While the show doesn’t focus on Kanon, she is a bright spot in a show focused on capturing the hearts of women in all different situations and walks of life.


12R3 – Chance Pop Session

Chance Pop Session

This show may be old, but it still has spunk you can’t deny!


13Sweet Diva – Wanna be the Strongest

Wanna be the Strongest

Are you obsessed with wrestling and anime? Nothing pulls these two hobbies together quite like Sweet Diva with so many tropes and an “Idol-Wrestler.”


14A-Rise – Love Live! School Idol Project

Love Live! School Idol Project

Why is Love Live! on here twice? Because everyone is obsessed with them, that’s why!


15The Cinderella Girls – The Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls

The Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls

An extension of The iDOL@STER, if you love where that show went this is more of that same glittery idol goodness.


16Ranka Lee – Macross Frontier

Macross Frontier

Ranka is the opposite of Sheryl and takes the super moe route. One of the central points in Macross Frontier is the dividing question: who is the best girl?


17Troll Idols – Beyond the Boundary

Beyond the Boundary

Does this count?
