Same original character designer. :D


actually, the original character designer for b-project is utako yukihiro who was the character designer for makai ouji devils and realist. while she did do the art for the uta no prince sama manga, she is not the original character designer for uta no prince sama. that would actually be chinatsu kurahana who also did the character designs for samurai flamenco and aquarian evol


Thank you for the explanation!

I gotta agree both the characters and designs are on point. Can't wait to watch this, it definitely gives off a Utapri vibe :D

Ahh I'm so sorry for this big mistake! Please forgive me!

It's not like you did anything to me so there's nothing I could forgive you for! Either way, mistakes happen (and I've seen people mistake Yukihiro Utako for UtaPri's character designer before), so I don't think you should worry about it or anything. ( ’ ∀ ’ )ノシ


Thank you. ;_; I shouldn't make that mistake though.

I'm zooming key visual too glorious omg Tomohisa ♥
And then I see someone beautiful voiced by Toriumi I can't.


Utapri and B-project same original designer?
How can you? I'm crying.

I was just going to point it out, but someone else doing so makes me think not all is lost... ( ・д・)

UtaPri's chara design was done by Kurahana Chinatsu and Bpro's is by Yukihiro Utako, who worked on UtaPri-related works as well, but is not the one who did the character design...

(And I agree on Toriumi, haha.)

The original project doesn't have a main female character.

What about hime?... ( ´・_・`)

Do you think the anime will be Utapri's rival? They both look so similar and I'm pretty sure B- project will have an awesome Ost :D


UtaPri is a monster. xD B-Project is reasonably popular for its singles sell an average of 5k, which is no simple feat. I don't think it'll reach UtaPri's level, but it IS popular.


Damn I knew Utapri was quite popular in Japan but a monster :o I've been curious to why Utapri is the only harem to sell over 40,000 disc's while other reverse harems keep it under 3,000 discs. Excluding Hakuoki which sold over 10,000 discs :D

I'm excited for what B-project has in store for us and 5k is not bad now that I think about it unless the anime has something up it's sleeve it's imposible to reach Utapri's level

I wonder if they decided to change it the last minute :D But reverse harems are always welcome my way. It will definitely replace the void Ozmafia will leave because after all the series will only be a 4 episode run


Yeah I'm fine with it either way. :D

You're welcome! Hmm, I'm not sure. The original project doesn't have a main female character. But since she's listed as the protagonist, I think it will be reverse harem.

Yey! I'm excited for this.. I LOVE LOVE idol animes and I'll always welcome them with open arms!! *p* Super happy that it's B-Project cos I L O V E THRIVE. I hope they keep the original voice actors for THRIVE. They will, right?

The female character looks cute. As long as she's not personality-less, it should be fine. If they're going to use the same songs from the CDs, then the music part is not what I'll stay for. Even with recent releases, the only song that I like is Love Addiction (and the chorus of 3 2 1 Jump). The songs aren't bad, they're well produced I think and I like the voices, but they are too idolish for my taste. Yes I know they're idols :P The key visual looks nice though.
