- Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com
"A lively inquiry that reveals more contradictions than consensus."
- Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter
"Tokyo Idols is a fascinating look behind the curtain of the idol phenomenon in Japan. For all its faults, it works as an intriguing character study, giving its viewers a unique opportunity to observe this craze that has been sweeping over Asia."
-Ty Cooper, HeyUGuys

- Wendy Ide, Screen International
