Karen is the unabashedly most famous member of Pure Club, a miniskirted all-girl pop band. After being stabbed at a fan event, she quits the group. Hikaru is a judo jock. Nina Kamiyama is the only girl in their high school who wears pants. How they relate to each other is the main subject of the #metoo manga, Not Your Idol Vol 1.
At its heart, this is a high school relationship manga. However, it also has surprising twists and an underlying message. Can a girl be girlish without being objectified?
Not Your Idol Vol 1 is a good gift for someone struggling with a #metoo situation. But it is also a just plain entertaining mystery. 4 stars!
