The song from the PV is nice; I listened it all the way through. Idk most likely will watch for the music only; all these announcements lately about idol games receiving anime adaptations and sort of made me roll eyes so hard.

I think the single sold enough considering the seiyuu are utter newbies and it hasn't had that much promotion until now.

Can't wait~

An idol anime based off a unit that their music doesn't even sell whatsoever, Bandai Namco has lost it. Give me Million Live instead.

Another male Idol Anime Project, dammit xD
What is with this massive amount of Anime being announced in the last three days!? It's an overkill for me xD Anime please temporarily STOP.
There is a convention going called Anime Japan 2016, this is why we are getting alot of news.

So it's like this every year? It seems like it's fun for the news team on MAL to keep the news going haha xD

Gosh, all these male idol anime projects! Not like I can complain though, I'm overjoyed.
That cast is unknown for me except for Morikawa but I'm looking forward to see how it will turn out nonetheless!
