J-pop idol group CHAM! has spent the last two years entertaining its fans. Sadly, all good things must come to an end, and CHAM! must see one of its members, Mima Kirigoe, leave the group to pursue her acting career. While Mima's choice is met with a mixed response, she hopes her fans will continue to support her. However, Mima's life begins to change drastically after her departure from the group. Wanting to shed her pop-idol image, she takes on a role in a crime drama series, and her career as an actress gradually becomes more demanding and taxing for both Mima and her manager, Rumi Hidaka. To add to Mima's growing unease, an obsessed fan who is incapable of accepting that Mima has quit being an innocent idol, begins stalking her; a new anonymous website begins to impersonate her life with intricate detail; and CHAM! also appears to be doing better without her. One by one, each disturbing development drives Mima to become increasingly unhinged and unable to distinguish reality from fantasy.

Amazing how a movie from 1998 is still a reflection of society almost 20 years later


Lots of mental disorders.


Great movie, some parts truly made me feel like i was mentally ill


One of the best FILMS I’ve ever seen in my life, let alone Anime. A psychological thriller that almost reaches perfection so often its scary


Literally what


i wish more people knew about this


Overrated, don’t bother with this one.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
