The official website for the SoniAni -Super Sonico the Animation- television anime series updated on October 14 — Super Sonico's birthday — with the announcement of the main staff, main cast, and theme song performer.
"Super Sonico," the mascot girl of the "Nitro Super Sonic" events held by Nitroplus, is credited with playing herself in the lead role and performing the opening theme song. (The theme will be Super Sonico's major label debut.) Mai Goto, Mami Ozaki, and Ryota Takeuchi round out the main cast as the band leader/bassist Misuzu Fuji, drummer Fūri Watanuki, and manager Kitamura.
Kenichi Kawamura is directing the anime at the studio WHITE FOX (Steins;Gate, Katanagatari, The Devil is a Part-Timer!). Yousuke Kuroda is writing the scripts, and Masafumi Tamura is designing the characters.
In Super Sonico's back story, she is already a photoshoot model, game character, and a musician, even as she studies as a college student. She is also part of a three-piece girl band named "Daiichi Uchū Sokudo" (Fastest Speed in Space) as the vocalist and guitarist.
The character already inspired her own line of games, and figures including a giant 1/2-scale statue. Super Sonico is also appearing in Namco Bandai Games' Super Heroine Chronicle for the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita systems and even in a promotion for THQ's Saints Row: The Third game.
