Besides iDOLM@STER (2011) and its movie, Hiromi Kikuta was the sound producer for Aikatsu, Black Rock Shooter (both the OVA and TV series), La Corda D'Oro, and now this huh. Interesting history with music-related anime.

Gosh, all these male idol anime projects! Not like I can complain though, I'm overjoyed.
That cast is unknown for me except for Morikawa but I'm looking forward to see how it will turn out nonetheless!

An idol anime based off a unit that their music doesn't even sell whatsoever, Bandai Namco has lost it. Give me Million Live instead.

I think the single sold enough considering the seiyuu are utter newbies and it hasn't had that much promotion until now.

Can't wait~

The song from the PV is nice; I listened it all the way through. Idk most likely will watch for the music only; all these announcements lately about idol games receiving anime adaptations and sort of made me roll eyes so hard.
