Yuuya, one half of the boy pop duo ZINGS, maybe the laziest performer in the Japanese music industry. His partner is out there giving 110% every night (and, he’s quite popular), but Yuuya’s half-assed, sloppy dancing, and his hostile attitude toward the audience, has the fans hating him and his agent looking for any excuse to cut him loose. The career of a pop idol isn’t the path of easy leisure and adulation Yuuya expected…
After a particularly lifeless concert appearance, Yuuya meets a girl backstage. She’s dressed to the nines in a colourful outfit, she’s full of vim and vigour, and all she wants from life is to perform. There’s one problem: She’s been dead for a year. This is the ghost of Asahi Mogami, the beloved singer whose time on the stage was cut short, unless… If ghosts are real, is spirit possession that much of a stretch?Kodansha Comics
The original manga was released and published by Comic Zero Sum. Furthermore, the first volume of The Phantom of the Idol manga in English is going to release on May 22, 2022.
