How many project does Chiyomaru have now ? and none of them have a release date.

Another idol group that will sell <1000 CDs

It's best I don't give it the time of day and focus on Aikatsu Stars and Love Live Sunshine (as Sunrise actually got the subgrouping right with Guilty Kiss).

LOL, MAL. Late with the news again :') Also, you should put OnoD and OnoKishou at the top bc they're the main characters more so than the rest.

Been following the music since it first came out!! So excited for this. Toshi!! OnoD!! All the baes ♥ @Comic_Sans

Also:
Music: Masato Nakayama (Kimi to Boku.)
Fucking hell yeah
So, what, is this a reverse harem idol anime?

AND THE BAES LOOK HOT

I'M IN

2016 IS THE YEAR OF THE FUJOSHITS

Also
Tomohisa Kitakado: Daisuke Ono (Barakamon)
Goushi Kaneshiro: Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Durarara!!)

I was one of the people who watched the first video announcing the project on Nico Nico Douga. That was a great experience. I knew an anime would come but I'm really pleased all the same.

P.S Cheer Danshi!!, Yuri!!! on Ice, Touken Ranbu, Tsukiuta, B-Pro...Anime Japan has been amazing.

I AGREE THAT LOVE ADDICTION IS THE BEST SONG LOL

tbh, out of all six songs, only THRIVE's are decent.

Mar 27, 2016 12:16 AM by Mayuka

Aaahhh So many beautiful men & the animation is on point will definitely check it out. I'm just so happy so many good anime have been announced this year definitely looks good for us females :'D

Now to make me happy would be another season of Sekaiichi Hatsukoi or Love Stage or even another BL adaption lol

Mar 26, 2016 11:52 PM by -Janet

^ I like Love Addiction too!!

Yasssss more Hanae singing, I'll take it. It's kind of a surprise that A-1's doing it though, I just don't have the image of them doing this type of show.

Mar 26, 2016 11:51 PM by komasan

Daaamn, so many anime for female anime fans :) I'm not really familiar with B-Project, but my latest song obsession has been Love Addiction, which is a song by one of the groups. I can't say I enjoy all male idol anime, but I'll try this out. 2016-2017 are definitely the years for the females haha.
