Satoshi Kon's debut represents a major shift from traditional anime subject matters, analyzing the pop icon phenomenon, fame, digital privacy, gender exploitation and its psychological impact.

Mima was a pop idol, worshipped by the masses until fashion dictated otherwise. In order to salvage her career, she is advised to drop music and pursue acting. A soap opera role is offered but Mima's character is less clean cut than desired. Regardless, she agrees and events take a turn for the worse.
