Published February 22, 2017

Confession Executive Committee ~Idol Series~ is a collection of songs detailing the work and daily lives of idols in the Confession Executive Committee universe. Originally a part of Confession Executive Committee ~Love Series~, this was officially recognized as its own spinoff in 2019.

History[edit | edit source]

This title began in the Love Series, as its inaugural song "Romeo" was originally featured as an insert song in the Confession Executive Committee movie The Moment You Fall in Love.. At the time, and for at least a year, the focus of these videos would be about the idol duo LIP×LIP, a teen sensation that's gotten very popular in Tokyo. Later installments would introduce other performers that work with them, such as mona, a rival soloist and the younger sister of the Love Series's Sena Narumi; and Minami, a friend and Youtuber that sings with them on occasion.

However, the characters did not originate from "Romeo" alone. Song-wise, Yujiro was first introduced alongside classmate and future manager Hiyori Suzumi in the Love Series song "Koi-iro ni Sake", while mona was originally featured in "Kawaiiku Naritai"; other characters in the series, such as the rival group ASCANA, originated from separate HoneyWorks properties initially unconnected to the Confession Executive Committee series beyond sharing a universe.
