The official website of the male seiyuu x Vocaloid song project Actors has announced that the franchise will get a TV anime adaptation. The announcement was also displayed at the Animate Girls Festival 2018 event on Saturday. More information will be announced at a later time.

The visual features anime designs for the characters Hinata Mitsutsuka (CV: Soichiro Hoshi) and Mike Enjouji (CV: Yuuki Ono).

Introduction
Private Tenshou Gakuen is the seventh of ten school districts circled within a 130-meter tall wall with restricted entry and egress aside from officials. The academy is fully autonomous by the government but to strive for independence, the school allows students to engage in club activities after school, which comes with a strangely unique system. Each club is ranked according to its overall accumulated points gathered from various club activities and school events. Points can also be received by winning at the school's periodic Tenshou Gakuen Singing Contest, where many students compete. The members in the clubs work hard to win the contest for their goal.

Kagepro didnt turn out so well and the source material is very "successful"

This project is completely different. It's male seiyuus covering vocaloid songs as characters. Their daily school life and competition.
Well... let's see how it turns out. But I have expectations set low

How do you know it's not gonna be good? This project has been around since 2014 and got multiple media adaptations later on. Finally it's animated. I see nothing only a successful source material.
