Earth Star Entertainment's Comic Earth Star magazine began streaming the promotional video that formally announced the anime adaptation of ESE and Kiyohito Natsuki's Sekai de Ichiban Tsuyoku Naritai! (Sekai de Ichiban Tsuyoku Naritai!) manga on Monday. The same video, with no actual animated footage, played at Anime Contents Expo on Sunday.
The story revolves around Sakura, the main vocalist of the nationally renowned idol group Sweet. Sakura suddenly decides to become a female professional wrestler one day.
Rion Kujo (Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero, Ikki Tousen: Shūgaku Tōshi Keppu-roku) is directing the anime at the studio ARMS (MAOYU, Ikki Tousen). Rin-Sin (Queen's Blade, Ikki Tousen) is designing the characters for the first 30-minute television anime based on a manga from Comic Earth Star.
The anime will premiere in October. The manga version launched in the inaugural issue of Comic Earth Star in 2011, and the third compiled book volume will ship on April 12.
