* Rejet's idols are part of a trend - male idol unit anime and games are some of the most popular franchises in Japan. Besides [=PitaPro=], there's also ''Music/{{Tsukiuta}}'' and the rest of Tsukino Productions, ''Anime/BProject'', mobile games ''VideoGame/Idolish7'' and ''VideoGame/EnsembleStars'', ''VideoGame/IChu'', of course, ''VisualNovel/UtaNoPrincesama'', which started it all. These characters are somewhat meta-fictional, releasing music like live groups separate from their stories. Female idol series ''Anime/LoveLive'' is still hanging on, but ''Idolm@ster'', the other main girl-idol series, has started its own male line, appropriately called "Side M".

* ''Manga/FullMoonOSagashite'' has the titular MagicalGirlIdol, Full Moon (aka Mitsuki Koyama), and her rival Madoka Wakamatsu. Notriceable in that both Mitsuki and Madoka were voiced by ''actual'' idol singers (Music/{{Myco}} and Emi "Kana" Oota, respectively)

A wildly popular trope in fiction about JapanesePopMusic is the "Idol Singer" -- a teenage or early twenty-something ([[ChristmasCake NEVER over 25]]) female performer, chosen for her [[{{UsefulNotes/Kawaisa}} cute and attractive image]] and [[NiceGirl sunny personality]] more than for her actual singing ability (though having ''actual'' talent underneath is not completely out of the rule). Idol Singers are recruited by multi-level audition processes, manufactured and managed by Japanese media companies, and [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness ruthlessly discarded]] after a few years of cranking out formulaic hits. Sometimes, idol singers [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything don't actually sing]] (like Music/MilliVanilli).

Most are tightly controlled by their producers and expected to maintain a public image of [[PurityPersonified purity and innocence]]: for example, their [[ContractualPurity contracts may include]] an article of her not being allowed to engage in ''any'' intimate activities. While this level of control has loosened somewhat with the growing impact of social media, which allows idols to interact with fans more casually, the industry has been slow to overturn its most problematic and exploitative elements. Over the past decade there has been a shift towards "mega-groups" that can have over one hundred members, with the lead spots on songs and choreography going to the most popular performers.
