Twinkle Heart

Lemon, Cherry, and Berry star in the 80s home video animation "Twinkle Heart". They're on a mission from God to find Heaven's greatest lost treasure: Love. That doesn't turn out too well, though, as they slouch around on Earth and get a part time job at a hamburger joint. That's where Lemon meets JJ, her dream man. Maybe love will be found after all?

Wake Up, Girls!

Unappreciated genius Yamakan does it again with his latest masterpiece "Wake Up, Girls!" The seven WUGs of WUG all undergo the pains of a young idol group as they challenge the established mega-groups. Through suffering and bloodshed they hope to become The iDOLM@STERS... or something. In true Yamakan fashion, the show contains subtle (and not-so-subtle) jabs at the anime industry and the otaku fans. Although otaku probably don't notice as they are too busy looking for panty shots (or alpacas in the background).

wooser's hand-to-mouth life: awakening arc

Wooser and friends return in the second season of wooser's hand-to-mouth life. Rejected mascot Wooser along with Darth Wooser, Ajipon, and The-Creature-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named share the burden of protecting the city from giant monsters and hurt feelings. Despite such great responsibility, Wooser usually spends his days living on the Internet while dreaming about meat, uniforms, and underage girls. Episode 8 reveals that below their house (but above their giant robot) lives an alpaca. It probably has a ridiculous name like everyone else in this show.

Short for "Idol Activities!", Aikatsu! follows up-and-coming idols Strawberry and Blue as they perform idol activities. Despite being marketed as a kids show, Aikatsu! explores deep and meaningful themes as well as provides social commentary on the toxic nature of Japan's idols industry. From the concept of idol purity to the sexualization of underage girls, Aikatsu! tackles many issues that other series ignore or gloss over. Like any idol show, it has its fair share of lemons. Raw lemons are an idol's favorite snack.
