The Hacka Doll the Animation series of anime shorts will premiere in Japan on October 2 on the Tokyo MX channel as part of the 30-minute anime programming block "Ultra Super Anime Time."
The original Hacka Doll app delivers a customized feed of news for each user. The user answers some simple questions when launching the app for the first time, and then the app will filter the news that caters to the user's personal interests — boys love (BL), cosplay, anime, manga, games, light novels, voice cast members, and more. With daily use, the app automatically analyzes and learns which news articles the user reads and recommends to further personalize the feed.
The anime personifies the app's customization engine as three "Hacka Dolls" — the personal entertainment AI and main navigator Hacka Doll #1 (played by Miyu Takagi), the anime expert Hacka Doll #2 (Kaya Okuno), and the knowledgeable otaku Hacka Doll #3 (Nanami Yamashita). The Hacka Doll's three voice actresses also sing the anime's theme song "First Heart Beat."
Ikuo Geso (Kill la Kill key animator) is directing the anime at Ceators in Pack. Studio Trigger (Kill la Kill, Ninja Slayer From Animation) will collaborate on the animation. Each episode will be 10 minutes long.
Studio Trigger previously animated two promo videos for the app last year.
