Lantis, the music subsidiary of Bandai Visual, and LMD (Dog Days, Sengoku Paradise Kiwami) will launch the Guitar Girl (Guitar Shōjo) iPhone/iPod application featuring voice actress/singer Yui Ogura on December 30.
Guitar Girl is Lantis and LMD's collaborative project with Ogura "for everyone who loves guitars and music." The tagline reads, "I'll become your guitar."
The app itself will be free to download, and users can download songs for 350 yen (about US$4.50) each. Users will also be able to download additional content for a fee. Lantis began streaming an ad for the project last week. The project's official website is also hosting wallpapers.
In the app, Ogura is voicing the role of 17-year-old Erika Ochanomizu after playing roles in Heaven's Memo Pad and Ro-Kyu-Bu! Atsuko Watanabe (GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class, Valkyria Chronicles) is designing the characters, and Lantis (Squid Girl, Future Diary) is producing the music.
LMD, the company (formerly known as Lambda Film) that Gonzo founder Shouji Murahama (Last Exile, Nadia - The Secret of Blue Water) established after leaving Gonzo in 2009, is producing the project.
