posted on 2013-01-10 12:39 EST
The North American anime distributor FUNimation Entertainment announced on Thursday that it will simulcast the Puchimas! -Petit Idolm@ster- net anime series. (Note: link can only be accessed by Elite subscribers.) The site will add new episodes on Mondays through Fridays at 12:00 p.m. EST, starting on January 14.
The series of two-minute shorts adapts Akane's four-panel manga series that 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.
Funimation noted in its announcement that it will have more simulcasts to announce on Friday and next week.
Update: Background information added.
