The story of SHINE POST follows TINGS, an aspiring idol unit that has big dreams despite producing small results. They seek the “best manager in the world” to help them break out of their slump, but the man that they hired – Naose Hinaki – is completely unmotivated. However, Naose may just have a hidden talent that will help TINGS to succeed…


Standing beneath an enormous subway mural of their rival idol group HY:RAIN, the girls of TINGS attempt to hand out flyers for their band to largely indifferent pedestrians in a new key visual for the SHINE POST TV anime.
