Idolish 7 Anime Music Video Shows Re:vale Idols' Song
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official Twitter account for Idolish 7, Bandai Namco Entertainment's fictional male idol group multimedia project, posted an animated music video for the project on Tuesday. The video features the song "No Doubt," performed by the characters Momo and Yuki from the idol unit Re:vale. Souichiro Hoshi voices Momo, while Shinnosuke Tachibana voices Yuki.
Shinobu Tagashira (Diabolik Lovers) directed, storyboarded, drew the character designs, and was the animation director and a key animator for the music video at Production I.G. The franchise announced in February that Production I.G would animate a music video for Re:vale's song "Mission."
The franchise's official site previously streamed similar animated music videos in December 2015 for the Idolish 7 group's "Memories Melodies" song and their rival group Trigger's "Leopard Eyes" song. The franchise also previously streamed music videos for Idolish 7's "Monster Generation" and "Restart Pointer."
Makoto Bessho (Shangri-La, Armitage: Dual-Matrix) is directing the franchise's anime adaptation 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, Re:Creators) 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.
