An official website opened for a TV anime adaptation of Studio Deen's 2015 Anime Mirai short film Ongaku Shoujo on Wednesday. The anime is scheduled for a July 2018 premiere.

There are eleven girls that consist the C-class Ongaku Shoujo idol unit under Pine Records. Despite generating red sales marks and not being very popular, Producer Ikebashi and the members are trying their very best to up their levels. Nevertheless, Ikebashi suggests recruiting a new member for Ongaku Shoujo; someone who can act as a catalyst for the success of the group. Thus, an audition was opened, leading to the soon-to-be legendary group's meeting to a girl named Hanako.

I saw the OVA some time ago, and frankly, it sucked. Badly. I thought it was just awful, and Haru completely ruined it for me. Thankfully, the series seems to be going in a different direction. I honestly hope to God that the TV series won't have the same problems the OVA had.

I quite enjoyed the short movie that was part of Anime Mirai, so I'd definitely pick this up. Hopefully it'll be just as enjoyable.

I enjoyed the short movie, so i'm glad it gets a full series.

I have weak spot toward cute girls with music or idols in general, so count me in sigh

If it has the same amount of yuri bait and fanservice then I'm in.

I’ve told myself that I’ll watch every anime out each season. Time to watch the short.

Wait wait hold on I’m overthinking this.

I love the music, especially the ones by Taishi. Got the album singles as well. The short movie was okay, not the best but I did enjoy it. I do hope this TV adaption turns out well. (Needs more QC Flapper though. XD )

I remember the music being really underwhelming.

That's a lot of adorable girls! :O Insta-PTW for me, that's for sure! Gotta check out the original Ongaku Shoujo from 2015 too.

This was popular enough to warrant a series?

Oh wait, idols. Duh.

Ongaku Shoujo (the original) was actually pretty fine to be fairly honest. But I welcome a TV series though.

Mar 14, 2018 2:24 PM by Wasshio

The music in Ongaku Shoujo was really good, I still listen to it from time to time. I hope they write more good music for the TV series.

Big fat meh on this one

Mar 14, 2018 2:10 PM by DatRandomDude

:/ The art atyle looks wrong to me ( if you compare it to the original anime)

Mar 14, 2018 11:20 AM by WeisserSchnee2

Always down for more idol shows, so I'll probably check it out. I'm counting 12 girls on the cover, which is a little large for my taste, but original Idolm@ster anime pulled off 13 fairly well, so we'll see if they can manage.

Give me music by Taishi and yuri subtext and I'm content.
