A Nico Live broadcast of BanG Dream! franchise on Monday has announced a spin-off anime featuring one of the units in the franchise, Pastel*Palettes. Titled Pastel Life, the slice-of-life series is yet to announce its type and broadcast details.

Unit cast from original TV series
Aya Maruyama: Ami Maeshima (Shuwarin☆Dorimin)
Hina Hikawa: Ari Ozawa (Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun)
Chisato Shirasagi: Sumire Uesaka (Isekai Shokudou)
Eve Wakamiya: Sawako Hata (Konohana Kitan)
Maya Yamato: Ikumi Nakagami (the Girls & Panzer series)

Created by Bushiroad, the Japanese media franchise began in January 2015 as a two-volume manga series written by Aya Ishida published under Monthly Bushiroad. It was then followed by multiple manga series, anime adaptations ranging from TV series to a special episode produced by studio Xebec and Issen, and web radios. Additionally, Craft Egg developed the BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! smartphone rhythm game that was launched in March last year.

Sentai Filmworks has licensed the TV anime series for North American distribution.

I’m down for any Bang Dream content (even if I’ve never seen the original anime whoops, but I’m a big fan of the franchise overall) so this is nice. I hope the rest of the units get one eventually, especially Afterglow!

@tsubasalover btw its’s Aya Maruyama, not Aru :)

I wonder how much Eve will say Bushido here. And how much Hina will mention her Onee-chan.

Anyway since Popipa origin story as is what anime cover getting added to the game I hope the same thing can go backward with other band origin story getting anime. Pastell*Pallete have the best out of them.

They want to make chibi's the version like recent Idolmasters? Well, anyway, I find spin-off more best idea, than restarts like Love Live.

Chibi is a huge turnoff for me, but I'll take whatever BanG Dream content I can get. I'm just hoping they release a full-fledged series on Afterglow or Roselia next.

As long as they make my baby Hina adorably obnoxious as fuck, I'm fine with any slice of nothing happens they throw at us

Oopsie daisy, nobody cares.
Accept everyone's opinions. Unless they are badly constructed or something the lines of "Uhh duuh da girls were sexy"

That's not an opinion, that's Something called "A lack of brain cells". Specifically the latter.

Everyone who likes Eromanga-Sensei is a pedophile.

Now waiting for either Roselia or HeloHapi ^^

I seriously need to stop watching idol anime... The fact that I can't afford to buy their CDs yet keep making my heart broken..

No. I think this is more of for people who are a fan of the mobile game which includes this group apart from the main one.

That's good news, I hope the other bands get one too and I really do hope that this is actually full length and not a short.

With the new PICO anime announced I wonder if these will actually be about the formation of Pastel*Paletts.
