An official website opened for a TV anime adaptation of Studio Deen's 2015 Anime Mirai short film Ongaku Shoujo on Wednesday. The anime is scheduled for a July 2018 premiere.

There are eleven girls that consist the C-class Ongaku Shoujo idol unit under Pine Records. Despite generating red sales marks and not being very popular, Producer Ikebashi and the members are trying their very best to up their levels. Nevertheless, Ikebashi suggests recruiting a new member for Ongaku Shoujo; someone who can act as a catalyst for the success of the group. Thus, an audition was opened, leading to the soon-to-be legendary group's meeting to a girl named Hanako.

If it's not be another yuri-bait with a set of music videos, then I'm with them.
Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

This would be the third Anime Mirai anime that spawned a tv series after LWA and Death Billiards.

Best Anime Mirai adaptation so far, the idols are all really cute like MTK cute (Why hasn't MTK made or adapted an idol series yet?).

I would have prefer that short about taiko drummers from J.C.Staff getting a series but meh. idols are nmore popular. Original short was to generic to get me hooked up.

Always down for more idol shows, so I'll probably check it out. I'm counting 12 girls on the cover, which is a little large for my taste, but original Idolm@ster anime pulled off 13 fairly well, so we'll see if they can manage.

I was mistakenly left behind in the MALoween Mansion send help or more booze pls

The music in Ongaku Shoujo was really good, I still listen to it from time to time. I hope they write more good music for the TV series.

Ongaku Shoujo (the original) was actually pretty fine to be fairly honest. But I welcome a TV series though.

This was popular enough to warrant a series?

Oh wait, idols. Duh.

I love the music, especially the ones by Taishi. Got the album singles as well. The short movie was okay, not the best but I did enjoy it. I do hope this TV adaption turns out well. (Needs more QC Flapper though. XD )

I’ve told myself that I’ll watch every anime out each season. Time to watch the short.

If it has the same amount of yuri bait and fanservice then I'm in.

I quite enjoyed the short movie that was part of Anime Mirai, so I'd definitely pick this up. Hopefully it'll be just as enjoyable.

I saw the OVA some time ago, and frankly, it sucked. Badly. I thought it was just awful, and Haru completely ruined it for me. Thankfully, the series seems to be going in a different direction. I honestly hope to God that the TV series won't have the same problems the OVA had.
