Posted in: Exploitation, overwork a scourge in seedy world of 'chika idols' See in context

Has an independent TV program company thought of making a documentary on the subject? then it could get aired on NHK this would hight light the problem. this way girls, and parents could be exposed to the culture and then they could see that the pop culture is not a glamorous as its made out to be.

There's a doco that came out a year or two ago called 'Tokyo Idol' that follows a couple of groups/idols around. Totally worth a watch. It's on Netflix US if you're from there or have a VPN - might even be on the Japan one too. Not on OZ tho.

It should be pointed out that not all chika idol groups work like this. I know a few people in groups who perform 4-6 times a month max, have a ball doing it and have jobs outside of it. There is definitely a dark side to the industry, but it certainly isn't all-pervading - there are a ton of great groups doing fun stuff that can be watched guilt-free...

inkochi - Maybe irikandji jelly fish - very small, very toxic

I got done by one of these as a child in the 90's whilst snorkelling off Cairns. Wouldn't wish it on anyone...
