VS AMBIVALENZ: High Stakes Audition 2D Music Project

THTFHQ Patreon Page

And the 7th 2D music project announced in 2021 is here. An ambitious concept and interesting cast welcome you to VS AMBIVALENZ.


VS AMBIVALENZ is a 2D music project by NIZISTA (best known for HANDEAD ANTHEM). It has a pretty unique format in which only 7 out of the 14 members will make it to the final group.

And in charge of deciding who makes it to the group is you, the listener.


–You or Me.

In 2021, the legendary entertainment company REISEN Productions held an audition called VS AMBIVALENZ to form an idol group WITH seven MEMBERS.

Of the 130,000 applicants, 14 were selected. The final audition is… “It’s one or the other“.

Throughout the year, the two men, who have been entrusted with the same responsibility, compete, and only those who have gained more support than their rivals can make their debut.

“I’ll stand there — I’ll be sure to!’

The story of 14 idol candidates who seek the idols’ spotlight and pursue infinite possibilities begins now.

The cast

VS AMBIVALENZ has an interesting cast that mixes experienced seiyuu with up-and-coming talents.

The cast includes Shintaro Asanuma, Makoto Furukawa, Chiaki Kobayashi, Reiou Tsuchida, Tasuku Hatanaka, Kengo Kawanishi and Ayumu Murase.
