Ensemble Stars! TV Anime, Stage Play Confirmed
posted on by Karen Ressler
Happy Elements K.K confirmed during a niconico live broadcast on Friday that its Ensemble Stars! smartphone game will get television anime and stage play adaptations. The stage play adaptation will premiere in June 2016 from Marvelous. Details on the anime will be announced at a later date.
The broadcast also revealed the silhouettes of two new characters that will be members of a new unit, and will be added to the game in March 2016.
The "idol-training produce game" takes place at a private boys' idol-training school with a history of turning out many great talents in show business. The protagonist is the school's lone female student who transfers to the school because of a special situation, and enters the school's producer department. Novelist Akira (Sasami-san@Ganbaranai) wrote the original scenario for the game.
The game features eight different idol units and has a cast of more than 30 male voice actors.
Past multimedia projects for the game have included merchandise, a manga adaptation that premiered in Kodansha's ARIA magazine in August, a B's Log official "mook" book, a collaboration with the Animate retail store, debut singles for all eight of the in-game idol units, and two novels that shipped in November.
