* 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 Tsukiuta, B-Project, mobile games Idolish 7 and Ensemble Stars, and 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".

* {{Nickelodeon}} was late to the party. They also don't push as hard to sell actresses as idol singers, leading to multiple aversions from actors who don't sign up with Nick's record label partner, Columbia Records.

* In the second LightNovel for ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', a minor Idol named Mitsuba is stalked by [[PickyPeopleEater Tsukiyama]]. It turns out she became an idol to follow in the footsteps of her old sister, who disappeared years earlier while pursuing a career as an Idol Singer. She's noted as being quite unassertive and melancholy, in comparison to the typical image of an Idol.

*** Their first real attempt to create an IdolSinger is MirandaCosgrove from ''Series/{{iCarly}}''. They built an entire episode around a plot dedicated to having Carly sing Miranda's single Shakespeare. It has been reasonably successful, as Miranda has been on multiple well attended tours and achieved reasonable record sales. Her most recent tour was sold out across the country until a bus accident cut the tour short.
