The November issue of ASCII Media Works' Dengeki Maoh magazine is announcing on Thursday that the next issue will bundle a Puchimas! Wakku Waku—! DVD in October. The DVD will contain episode 0 of the "petit" anime adaptation of Akane's Puchimas! -Petit Idolm@ster- manga. The four-panel manga depicts the overly hyper daily life of The IDOLM@STER's 765Pro idols — and mysterious creatures named "Puchidoru" who somewhat resemble the idols.
Namco Bandai Games revealed the new anime at Tokyo Game Show on Sunday with a promotional video:
The Puchimas! Wakku Waku—! DVD will also have a "Puchimaspecial Talk Show" video in which voice actresses Asami Imai, Mayako Nigo, Naomi Wakabayashi, and Manami Numakura chat about what goes on behind-the-scenes at the dialogue recording sessions, their love for the "Puchidoru," and other topics. A music video for the theme song "La La La Wonderland" and a promotional video for the Idolm@ster Shiny Festa PSP "idol rhythm" games complete the DVD.
Akane launched the original manga in Dengeki Maoh in 2011, and ASCII Media Works will publish the fourth manga volume on October 27.
