The visual features the protagonist Serina Akesaka with her band members, clicking a selfie during their rehearsals. The band is called Irodorimidori and consists of Serina, Aliciana Ogata, Nazuna Tennouzu, Nagi Kobotoke, and Naru Hakobe.
Serina is the typical musical anime protagonist who’s always energetic, supportive, and hyping everyone up, but she lacks in her studies and grades.
So naturally, when she heard of the extra credits rumor, Serina began to put together the Irodorimidori band and started working towards the performance of the year.
While we’re at the characters, let’s look at the amazing cast lineup for the anime:
|Serina Akesaka||Emi Nitta||Honoka Kōsaka (Love Live! School idol project)|
|Aliciana Ogata||Ayaka Fukuhara||Rin Shibuya ([email protected] Cinderella Girls Theater)|
|Nazuna Tennozu||Ayano Yamamoto||Nae Tennōji (Steins;Gate)|
|Nagi Kobotoke||Kaoru Sakura||Chiko Sekino (Dropout Idol Fruit Tart)|
|Naru Hakobe||M.A.O||Yukari (Teasing Master Takagi-san)|
Along with the cast, the franchise also revealed the staff working on this upcoming anime:
|Director||Chihaya Tanaka||Remake Our Life!|
|Series Composition||Rei Ishikura||The Titan’s Bride|
|Character Design||Takeshi Satō, Kaori Gotō||–|
It might sound like yet another cliche musical anime, but it is so much more. The characters are sometimes so realistic, and you relate to them on a whole different level.
The anime is perfect to binge on a winter day in your blanket, but unlike its story, you won’t get any extra credits for it :’).
