Cute boys do cute things? Sounds cool! My type of show. I probably have more time to drop comments on forum threads than to binge all these anime, funnily enough... But can't wait!!

"The anime will air on July 7..."

That's what I like to hear. I've had this on my PTW for a couple of years now. Glad to see it's finally coming!

Interesting set of staff members, making me even more excited to see this. Bring on Summer 2019!

This is wonderful, they better give me some Akatsuki screentime because what Happy Ele did to them in the main story was disrespectful smh.

I hope they add some stuff that's not from the main story aswell, Trick Star is great and all but the Valkyrie stories are just phenomenal and Ryuseitai angst hurts but would make a good anime. Though it's unlikely...

I'm so happy. After all these years I will finally see my boys fully voiced and moving.

How shoujo-ish guys in this franchise? I understand that this will be idol-CBDCT and I obviously am not the target audience for this, but the character design is pretty cute.
