This existential widescreen yuri baroque proletariat hard sci-fi idol story has carved out a new legend in science fiction history! Gengen Kusano's astounding debut collection!

Last And First Idol is a Seiun Award-winning short story by Gengen Kusano, the first debut work to win the award in 42 years. It has been published in English by J-Novel club, in a collection with two of Kusano's other stories, Evolution Girls and Dark Seiyuu (which for the sake of convenience will also be listed on this page). It began as a Love Live! fanfic before being adapted into an original novel.
