Synopsis
Founded in the Taisho era, the "Red Flower Opera Company" attracts people's hearts across generations on a beautiful and gorgeous stage created only by unmarried women. The 100th generation students who have passed through a high magnification and entered the "Red Flower Opera Music School" to develop the human resources. Sarasa Watanabe, an innocent girl with a height of 178 cm who longs for "Oscar-sama." Ai Narada, a former national idol who is indifferent to everything, both dreams and friends. The music school life full of hope and conflict, where everything is disjointed, is about to begin!

The anime will cover events beginning with the original manga, which was serialized in Shueisha's Jump X from May 2012 to October 2014. The 14 chapters were later compiled into two volumes, which Hakusensha re-released as a single volume titled Kageki Shoujo!! Season Zero in March 2019. Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the manga in English in April, with a print release scheduled for November 24.

Saiki's sequel manga, Kageki Shoujo!!, has been serialized in Melody since February 2015. The ninth compiled volume was released on March 5, and the tenth volume is scheduled to go on sale on November 5.

Kageki Shoujo!! was nominated for best Shoujo in the 44th Kodansha Manga Awards this year.

From what I read, not official Shoujo ai/yuri, but seems more of the implied variety

I don't know much about this but considering the similar titles, if this is anything Shoujo☆Kageki Revue Starlight it might be interesting and worth checking out. Based on the looks of it, it might have some Utena influences too.

No, as far as I remember, MC even had a male love interest in the prequel. What you mean by "implied" is the usual homoeroticism for Takarazuka, as it is a all-female theater with a memetic lesbian reputation. Outside of that, this manga has enough male characters.

Takarazuka was an influence on Utena, not the other way around. And this manga is at least 2-3 years older than RS. They have Takarazuka as a common theme, but otherwise they are as different as Free and any actual sport shonen.

@NG_Chloe It's a classic hobby tittle, so romance isn't an important part of it anyway. Just one of the side characters has certain ship teasing with MC.

So above all, expect a deep study of Takarazuka and women's nakama-power. Well, and a certain amount of
