Shonen Hollywood project

The project has been developed in a wide variety of ways, starting from the stage in 2011, publishing a novel in 2012, real idol from 2013, and TV animation in 2014 and 2015.
It is the novelist Ikuyo Hashiguchi who writes the youth ensemble drama through the story of the group "Shonen Hollywood". In recent years, she has also appeared on TV as a commentator on Fuji TV's "Tokudane", showing a wide range of activities in addition to writing novels.
