News Puchimas! -Petit Idolm@ster- BDs/DVDs to Add Bonus Anime
posted on 2012-12-09 17:20 EST
Retailers began listing three volumes of the Puchimas! -Petit Idolm@ster- anime series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD. Each volume will contain 21 to 22 regular episodes and a new bonus anime. They will each also have a booklet, the clean opening and ending animation sequences, and promotional videos (first volume only).
The limited first pressing of each Blu-ray volume will add an exclusive sleeve case illustrated by original manga creator Akane, and the limited first pressings of each Blu-ray and DVD volume will add an anime jacket art and a CD with one of the three different ending theme mixes.
The first volume will ship on March 27, 2013, and the third volume will arrive on May 29. The net anime itself will premiere on the Animate.tv and Niconico services on January 1, and a new two-minute episode will run every weekday. (The episodes will repeat on the weekends.)
Akane's original 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.
