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.

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

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.
