The official website of Idolish 7, Bandai Namco's fictional male idol group multimedia project, announced the cast and staff of the project's anime adaptation on Tuesday.

The cast includes:

Idolish Seven

  • Toshiki Masuda as Iori Izumi
  • Yusuke Shirai as Yamato Nikaidō
  • Tsubasa Yonaga as Mitsuki Izumi

The cast reprise their roles from the game.

Makoto Bessho (Shangri-La, Armitage: Dual-Matrix) is directing the anime at Troyca. Ayumi Sekine (Makura no Danshi, Fate/Grand Order: First Order) is supervising the anime's scripts. Kazumi Fukagawa (Inari Kon Kon, GLASSLIP animation director) is adapting Arina Tanemura's original character designs for animation. Ei Aoki (Fate/Zero, Aldnoah.Zero) is credited as supervisor.

Bandai Namco Online made the Idolish 7 "dramatic rhythm action" iOS and Android game with music in collaboration with Lantis. The player assumes the role of Tsumugi Takanashi, a manager for a new idol group. She must train seven male singers — each with their own individual personalities — to turn them into the No. 1 idols. The game features full voicing of the dialogue by the cast.

The multimedia project celebrated its one-year anniversary with the release of its i7 album last August.

The project has included multiple manga adaptations. Arina Tanemura (Full Moon O Sagashite, Phantom Thief Jeanne), the project's original character designer, drew the Idolish 7 TRIGGER -before The Radiant Glory- manga with a story by Bunta Tsushimi, and the pair launched Idolish 7 MEZZO: Murasaki Ao no Hekireki in Hakusensha's LaLaDX magazine in October. Nokoshi Yamada launched another manga on Hakusensha's "Hana Lala online" site in July 2015. Tsushimi also launched the novelization on the Web Hakusensha Novels site at the end of July 2015.
