The limited edition of Akane's fifth Puchimas! -Petit Idolm@ster- manga volume will bundle an original anime DVD when it ships on March 27, 2013. The main net anime itself will premiere on the Animate.tv and niconico (formerly Nico Nico Douga) services on January 1, and a new two-minute episode will run every weekday. (The episodes will repeat on the weekends.) The announcements were made at this weekend's Dengeki 20th Anniversary Festival event.
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.
Mankyū (Tono to Issho, Kakko-Kawaii Sengen!, 30-sai no Hoken Taiiku) is directing the anime at the studio Gathering, and Sao Tamado (30-sai no Hoken Taiiku) designed the characters.
The December issue of ASCII Media Works' Dengeki Maoh magazine will bundle a Puchimas! Wakku Waku—! DVD with episode 0 on October 27. Frontier Works will release the "La La La Wonderland" theme song CD on November 28. A series of 12 Character Song CDs will then launch on January 9 and continue until March 27. Each CD will have a solo version of "La La La Wonderland" by one of the 765Pro idols and her Puchidoru counterpart, along with an new original song.
Namco Bandai Games revealed the new anime at last month's Tokyo Game Show with a promotional video:
