Description
Meet Ri Ri: a bona fide pop icon who takes us on her journey toward fame. Now, meet The RioRio Brothers: a group of adult male superfans who devote their lives to following her—in the virtual world and in real life. Once considered to be on the fringes of society, the "brothers" have now become mainstream va the internet. TOKYO IDOLS explores a cultural phenomenon driven by an obsession with young female sexuality and the growing disconnect between men and women in hyper-modern societies.
