OF COURSE THIS HAPPENED EVENTUALLY.
So the edited-up version of the BiS auditions airs tonight (or now, I guess, or tomorrow? Japanese dates confuse me), and it’s probably a good recap for those of us who watched pretty much the entire audition boot camp as if there were going to be any insights — hell, if you were paying attention, it was clear from early on who the winners were going to be, lending credence to the it-was-all-a-stunt-of-course-it-was-this-is-Watanabe-we’re-talking-about of it all.
For many, the most interesting outcome of the auditions wasn’t New BiS, but the spin-off sister/rival group SiS, the prototype of which stormed the stage at the New BiS debut and got people really excited and then had themselves a really cool debut live of their own and then … well.

Yep, they’re making a feature film out of it.
You can see more stuff at the website, or in this Natalie.mu article (that calls the SiS demise “annihilation,” and my heart doth swell). Yes, Space Shower is doing it because they get all the cool jobs. Yes, I’m certain that it’ll be amazing and frustrating and agonizing and will get people mad at Watanabe all over again.
Watch the trailer:

They play us like a fiddle, each and every time, and we love it anyway.
