Bones Will Animate IDOLiSH 7 Group Trigger's New Music Video
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Animation production studio Bones has signed on to animate the music video for IDOLiSH 7 idol group Trigger. The name of the song hasn't been announced. The music video will air on August 20 on large outdoor screens throughout Japan. Fans will have to make sure to gather promptly at 11:00 a.m., because the video will only be shown once.
Bones previously animated the franchise's "MEMORiES MELODiES" song and anime studio, NAZ, produced the "Leopard Eyes" music video for Trigger in 2015. Most recently, Production I.G animated the song "No Doubt," performed by the characters Momo and Yuki from the idol unit Re:vale in May.
The members of rival Trigger idol group are Gaku Yaotome (Wataru Hatano), Ten Kujō (Sōma Saitō), and Ryūnosuke Tsunashi (Takuya Satou).
Trigger's first album will be released on September 20. The group will celebrate the release with a special feature on the back cover of the November issues of B'S LOG and JUNON magazines.
The album's release also part of the franchise's second anniversary that includes the mobile game, CDs, manga, and upcoming anime projects. The game will introduce the "MECHANICAL LULLABY" story line starring IDOLiSH 7 member Riku Nanase (Kensho Ono) and Trigger member Ten Kujō (Sōma Saitō) this fall. More information on the "Mechanical Lullaby" plot will be revealed at the IDOLiSH 7 booth at the Animate Girls Festival 2017 event in November.
The new idol group ŹOOĻ was introduced in the game's third installment that launched on April 27.
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. Tanemura also draws the Idolish 7: Ryūsei ni Inoru manga adaptation and announced Re:vale-centered manga (pictured right) and the Asa no ryō ni Iru Twitter short story adaptation.
