On July 7, 2018, Idolish7 was green-lit for a second season. The second season, titled Idolish7: Second Beat! aired from April 5 to December 27, 2020, with the cast and staff returning to reprise their roles. On April 13, 2020, it was announced that after the fourth episode, the remaining episodes of the season had been delayed due to the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic. On August 20, 2020, it was announced that the season will resume with the third episode on October 4, 2020.
Also, the amount of detail that went into this series is ridiculous. After watching Vibrato, I went back to watch the first season and I did notice they snuck in a bunch of details that alluded to both Vibrato and future situations. Like those two cops in episodes 3 and 4 actually attended the Black or White concert. That was such a great tie in. Not to mention how they even tied the first live into that final episode. They definitely took a lot of inspiration from that live from the performance down to the stage setting.
In IDOLiSH7 Vibrato, episode 2, Sogo along with the rest of IDOLiSH7 is invited to TRIGGER's creation 2nd anniversary. When Ryunosuke tell that everyone can peak whatever they want to drink, Sogo blushes, stiffs and thanks him while stuttering.
In the 6th episode, Sogo watches with Yamato a commercial involving Ryunosuke drinking a beer can half-naked. Yamato comments that it was suggestive for a middle-day advertisement while Sogo says that it will \"probably sell out again\". Later in the same episode, TRIGGER joins IDOLiSH7's party. Sogo, already drunk, welcome them loudly. Later, Sogo poses besides Ryunosuke, both holding their beer can (the same type of beer as in the advertisement). 59ce067264
