I was expecting them to get a game in the near future, but not an anime so soon so I'm really surprised but happy. Their music is really good and I've been looking forward to more content from them ever since they were announced. The new bands also look really good, although I thought they were from a different franchise when I originally saw them because they look so different to ARGONAVIS.

I look forward to seeing both the girls and boys from the BanG Dream franchise next year.

This looks like it could be pretty good. I'll definitely give it a shot when it comes out.

I might watch it if it ain't gay.
They call certain methods of fighting good and others evil,
acting as if there were some nobility to the battlefield.
Such illusions, perpetrated by heroes throughout history,
have led countless young men to their bloody deaths,
all for the sake of this valor and glory.

They exist in different universes. The president of Bushiroad confirmed they're separate and the girls and boys of each franchise won't interact.
