The smartphone portal site for Enterbrain's Famitsu game magazine began streaming its "exclusive" premiere of the first anime short from Asahi Productions' two-dimensional virtual idol group AGC38 on Friday. Although the site is geared towards iPhone and Android smartphones, the nine-minute video can be viewed from any platform that plays YouTube videos.
The short film is named "Sorette Dakara ne!" after the 38-member idol group's official song. It is set in the classes of the Musashi Asahigaoka Girls' Academy that the girls attend.
Asahi Productions announced the project last September as the first talent and entertainment unit comprised entirely of 38 bishōjo characters. In the announcement, Asahi stated that it hopes to develop anime and manga for the project. In December, the group released a shorter animated music video for "Sorette Dakara ne!" The song's CD will go on sale on July 15.
