Stars shine brightest together.
"My name's Anise Kendall and I'm an idol, actress, and lover of cute girls. Just a few short months ago, I was still living on dusty old Mars with my best friend, Isla. Now? We're both students at the prestigious Dreamstar Academy for Idols on planet Aida, the centre of all forms of entertainment among the stars.
We've settled into our new lives here, Isla's managed to find herself a new friend and rival called Ema, and is currently giving her a sense of appreciation for the role lungs play in the human body. As for me, I'm getting ready for an important audition to become a new superhero. Exciting stuff!
There's an almost endless variety to the types of idol out there, and I've made it my job to learn about them all. Because becoming an idol is easy. But becoming a successful idol? Ah, that's the hard part, and the more unique you are, the more likely you'll be to succeed.
Now I just have to hope Isla and our other new friends figure this out. Fading into obscurity is a fate worse than death for an idol, after all..."
