An official website was launched on Sunday to announce that an anime adaptation of Liber Entertainment Inc.'s I★CHU idol smartphone game, titled I★CHU Étoile Stage, is in the works. Animation production and planning company Twin Engine also posted a promotional video. More information regarding the anime will be revealed at a later date.

Liber released the idol game on iOS and Android platforms in 2015. The game features 32 idols who attend the Etoile Vio academy and sing their own original songs. The company plans to release a second app with the same name as the anime this fall.

Noticing a lot of male idol series getting anime series. Must be very popular in Nippon, I mean I knew that the idol stuff is very popular but... It was mostly on the female idols.

As for the series itself, I can't get myself to care about it. For one thing it's a game adaptation therefore its automatically trash imo. And I've kinda given up on being "idol trash".

This is wonderful news! I'm really excited for the anime, though getting used to everyone's new artstlye is going to be a bit.. weird? I still love it, though. They all look nice in the new style.
But you made a mistake. It's not 42 idols, but 42 characters/voice actors. Idols are only 32 in total.

OH MY GOD!! I'M SO HAPPY!! I've been playing this game for over 2 years and I never thought this day would come because its just not as popular as other idol franchises. I'm sure a lot of people are gonna think "oh, another idol anime" and that's fair but I honestly don't care. For someone like me who's been into this franchise for 2 years this is such amazing news.

Seiya looks pretty nice in the teaser PV. I'm looking forward to seeing the other units animated considering they're all drawn by different artists in the game, so its going to be weird seeing them all in the same art style. Speaking of, I hope all the units will be in the anime in the first place with them all being added to the game at different times. Alchemist was the last unit to be added and they're extremely popular so I can't imagine them not being in the anime. All I care about is my favourite crossdressers being animated ^.^

I know I'm rambling but I'm really excited. Looking forward to more info being revealed!
