TV Tokyo began streaming a preview for the first episode of Bandai's idol card game anime, Aikatsu!, on Tuesday. The video is narrated by Ichigo, the main character of the series. It previews both the 2D anime and also the CG dance sequences.
Sunrise is producing the television anime, which will premiere in Japan on October 8 on TV Tokyo. Bandai announced an idol-themed card game and an anime adaptation for the card game in July. The story revolves around Ichigo Hoshimiya, played by Sumire Morohoshi (Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children's Marlene, Princess Jellyfish's Kurara), who was just a normal middle school student until she suddenly got involved in the world of idols.
