METROPOLIS: Idols Of The True Earth

Have you ever closed your eyes and imagined what Idols will look and sound like in the future? What would their visual style look like? What would their music sound like? What if in the future we will find Idols that are much different to what we have known before? What if! What If!

What If, you were faced with Idols that have arrived from what is known as the “True Earth” a world deep inside our own planet? What If you were faced with Idols that are “angered by the way mankind has treated the earth and have pledge to take revenge one day?

What If, they come disguised as middle and grade Schoolers? on a mission to study “enthusiasm” and the effect it has on humans and search for weaknesses in mankind.
What If these Idols from True Earth grew to love mankind with the help of Idol otaku and their hearts change and they find themselves betraying their own race, by creating a psychic link between themselves and the Idol otaku to protect mankind.

What If these Idols turn of heart was discovered and their very lives were at stake and in the hands of Idol otaku for protection as agents have been sent from True Earth disguised as otaku with the mission to eliminate these Idols, by using an electro-charged handshake called “Handshaker.”  and other fatal weapons .
What if, I told you that when you close your eyes to go to sleep today, that these things were taking place now and this unit is known as METROPOLIS.

The synopsis for the Idol group METROPOLIS is one that is not only creative but brings you all the feelings of a movie, anime or manga and sets this group apart from others.
I will include at the end of this article the full versions of their story.

METROPOLIS is all the things that I have mentioned above and they are real and they are here now.

Story of METROPOLIS from METROPOLIS Staff

Metro Ririco is a member of the idol singer group Metropolis, who come from “True Earth”, a world that’s deep underground planet Earth.
Enraged by the way humans violate the planet, the True Earthlings send Metro Ririco and the others to the surface to eliminate humans. Using mimetic camouflage, they disguise as grade and middle-schoolers.
Ririco and her fellow True Earthlings form an idol group to study humans’ “enthusiasm” and the effect it has on humans.
The True Earthlings believe that the humans’ enthusiasm is motivated by lust and greed and so they hope that they can make them extinct by weakening their enthusiasm. But the Metropolis members start to appreciate enthusiasm through their daily interaction with the enthusiastic otaku fans. They forget that they are there to wipe out humans.
As the girls align themselves with the humans, they end up betraying their own people.
The Metropolis singers use a psychic ability known as “Metro-Contact” that allows them to absorb the knowledge and memories of the otaku fans’ they meet at occasions for handshakes and autographs like the Meet Metropolis event.
The absorbed knowledge and memories are used to protect mankind.

The Mimetic Ota combatants also feign excitement at a live performance and break into their Death Kecak dance. Retractable blades shoot out at ultrasonic speed as they attempt to kill the idol group.
