2nd PriPara TV Anime Season Premieres April 4

posted on by Sarah Nelkin

The PriPara & Pretty Rhythm Parfect [sic] World fan book announced on Thursday that the second season of the television anime adaptation of syn Sophia's PriPara arcade game for girls will premiere on April 4. The book also reveals that Rei Ishizuka will be joining Tsuneyoshi Saito in the second season in composing the anime's soundtrack.

The story of the second season continues with Laala and her friends Mirei and Sophy, who are part of the "SoLaMi♡SMILE" PriPara idol unit, which is rising in popularity. In the PriPara amusement park, a new zone called "Dream Theater" has opened, and it's said that when a fateful five-man team filled with charm that performs there, a new event called the "PriPara Dream Parade" will be held. However, it is not known which five people make up this team, and the PriPara idols scramble to give the greatest performance in the new zone.

The new season will introduce two new characters: Mikan (seen left in the images below), an angelic idol who thinks she's actually a servant of the gods, and Aroma (seen right), a girl who thinks she's a servant of the underworld. Aroma constantly wants curses put on herself, while Mikan wants to break the curses on her. The characters are played by Yui Watanabe and Yui Makino, respectively.

The sequel to the first anime series inspired by SynSophia's arcade game for girls that premiered in July was announced at the PriPara x Pretty Rhythm Christmas event in December. The franchise's first film, Gekijō-ban PriPara Mi~nna Atsumare! Prism Tours, premiered on Saturday. The story of the film will change depending on the day and week that it is screened, with various versions prepared.
