You can see how surprised Yuuya and Asahi were on their first encounter. Asahi has an unfulfilled thirst for stage performance, and she is the only way Yuuya can improve.

After the manager and staff have given up on him, the protagonist has to somehow prove that he can be charismatic as well.

Can this bizarre duo make it, or will Yuuya have to say goodbye to his fans? (If they even exist, that is.)

In the latest visual, Yuuya can be seen performing with his partner while Asahi gives him confidence and instructions from behind the shadows (literally).

About Phantom of the Idol

Phantom of the Idol (Kami Kuzu Idol) is a supernatural comedy manga by Hijiki Isoflavone. It began serialization in December 2017 in Ichijinsha’s Comic Zero Sum and has been licensed by Kodansha Comics.

The story is about the lazy Yuuya Niyodo, who’s a part of the idol duo ZINGS. One day after a sloppy performance, Yuuya encounters Asahi Mogami, a cheerful female idol. The twist is that Asahi has been dead for a year, and this turns Yuuya’s life upside-down.
