Last and First Idol

Over at All the Anime, I chronicle the controversial debut of Gengen Kusano, who recently snagged his second Seiun Award for science fiction.

“Mere months before Last and First Idol was nominated for the Seiun, it had previously appeared in an amateur press publication called School Idol Fictionally, where its true colours were revealed as a work of Love Live! fan fiction. Kusano’s original took a degree of icky glee at describing the sudden death of the idol Nico Yazawa, a gruesome operation to salvage her organs, and her subsequent transformation into a super-being with godlike powers.”
